In a world that prizes how fast something can be done, we are no longer allowing ourselves to sit in the middle of a mistake or a failed attempt and mull it over, view it differently, or to even make a mistake at all.
Body image and perception issues do not go away just because one is working out.
At first blush, it may seem like civil forfeiture is different than the usual methods of justice: targeting poor people who have nothing and placing them in jail.

Does there really exist an industry of deeply funded anti-tax lobbyists whose sole purpose is to protect the holdings of their clients? Absolutely -- far from "mistaken," that narrative is exactly right. Do they win every fight? Nope, and they lost the one that led the capital gains rate to go up in 2013.
