    Why did my comment just disappear?!!

    This story has a problem. We are told that the arrest was effected by the U.S. Secret Service and the Palm Desert Police Dept. Why–then–are we hearing a report from a Sgt. from the county sheriffs dept.? These are distinct enforcement entities.

    If the Fed can print worthless money, why can’t we do the same thing?
