The FBI has added Juggalos to it's 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment list, essentially saying the Insane Clown Posse and it's fans are just as dangerous to be around as the Bloods and the Crips, the Aryan Brotherhood, and Mexican Drug Cartels. Awesome!
So, if you find yourself at the airport trying to get on a plane for the holidays and you're wearing your ICP shirt, chances are you will probably get a cavity search and not allowed on the plane. Perhaps Tila Tequila can finally sleep in peace.
Welcome home, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Infantry, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army National Guard! Job well done in Iraq!
Terry Funk wrote in his autobiography a few years back how the Juggalos were weird, but nice people, united in their love of ICP, and how Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope turned out to be pretty nice guys. He actually enjoyed working w/ 'em at one of their festivals.
All the REAL trouble in the world, FBI, and you come up with THESE guys as a threat? Nice work, government. *facepalm*
Grimis is right but my two cents. A VAT would only penalize you for spending. The rich spend more. End of story. Exclude food and so much on vehicles and you have a winner. Plus if you watch your pennies you aren't hit.
