He went to the Division of Taxation in Providence on July 30 to deliver a check for $4,500 — all the money he had on hand. He asked if he could keep the pet shop on Newport Avenue open long enough to liquidate by selling off the animals. The tax representative said no.
The next day, he returned to file tax forms that were overdue. A representative told him that if he paid another $10,000, he would be allowed to reopen. He said he didn’t have the money. He asked what would happen if he defied the order and was told he could be fined and imprisoned. He left the office in tears, escorted out by a supervisor.

Make no mistake about it, the gooferment is a criminal gang. Heartless and money hungry. And, dont stand in their way.
In a perverse sort of a way, they are doing the fellow a favor forcing him out of business. A money losing business.
But, force leads to force.
In this case, it’s wasy to see the guns of government.
Aren’t you ashamed at what is done in your name?
