Because Government is Greedy.
They don't want to do anything about the tax code....except raising rates.
We, the taxpayers, are nothing but a field to be harvested, and the Government is the Farmer. Every farmer wants to maximize the yield of their crop.
This cranks me, as I was at the Audit the IRS Rally in D.C.
Met a great guy from Texas, Louie Gohmert.
This is the most abuse of government power I have ever seen.
These creeps should be hung high from a tree, so it never happens again.
BYT... That rally was not provided porta-johns, they blamed it on sequestration.
Just screw with us.

What ‘exactly’ is the Law about this whole ordeal, and the penalty for doing this? Does anybody really know the answer? Because i do not. I am curious.
Martha Stewart went to jail for basically insider trading (i think) and it does not seem like anyone really wants to touch Clinton, and i want to know why.
They are called Psychiatric Wards or Institutions now, not asylums. The asylums were basically run like a Roman prison where the ‘sick souls’ were experimented on and basically tortured in every way imaginable. As bad as psych wards are today, they pale by far in comparison to the Dr.Moreau type of experimentation which was commonplace in the asylums. The psych wards of today are run a bit more differently, though abuse can and does certainly still occur. Typically they require one to be checked in by themselves, voluntarily, or by a family member or occasionally a police officer if they are deemed a threat to themselves or others.
Most of these asylums look to be in Upstate NY. They let most of the less harmful to society ‘souls’ loose on the streets to fend for themselves.
They walk the streets today in most cases. Many have been elected into democratic politician positions. The rest just vote multiple times for democrats at each election. It's the way they roll!
In my genealogical research, I’ve stumbled across names who were placed in facilities such as this. Many times, these individuals were categorized as “idiotic”, and their conditions ranged from the mentally disabled (Down Syndrome) to the physically disabled (blind, deaf, lame, etc.) and had many ranges of severity.
My small hometown had a large facility which operated in the 1800′s and early 1900′s and was called the Alms House. Anyone who didn’t have someone to care for them or was unable to care for themselves due to a disability would live there. They had their own working farm and many volunteers. Every January the local newspaper would publish their financial records, assets, and donations since it solely ran on charity (shocking by today’s standards). Churches and individuals donated money, livestock, canned goods, clothing and much much more. I found it interesting to read how these facilities operated before government funding. I have no idea how these individuals were treated, though.
My guess is that when new treatments became available most were successfully treated and the rest may have been moved to a more modern facility. It is only a guess though. I agree it is a very beautiful building.
Also, I realize in the time period that this asylum was being used electro convulsive therapy was an inhumane treatment but, it is still used today to treat depression if other treatments have failed. Although now days the patient is put to sleep while it's being administered but, it has successfully treated many people; it basically resets the brain which causes the serotonin levels to return to normal.

Yes Please….. remove HER. Division among the true America, this Land, this Love, this Hope, how do we keep it?
I Pray….. I Beg…. I Plead…. we are good, we have Love, we do Help. but we are broken. Needing the light to shine, a ray of hope, to restore that which we have lost, guide us through your grace, that we may again “see” where you need us to be, what you need us to do, to restore her to her place, high above ,as the beacon you so graciously gave to us at our birth. Remind us again, what it is we need to see, hear, give,love, and live, to understand how to get back on that guiding light, shinning that ray of hope….for all. Awaken us, help us to understand, that we may see, and then fix it.
