This is dealing with not paying taxes, though. The government doesn't mess around with stuff like that.

Girls who have how many DUIs, hit and runs, drug charges and yet it's the people who owe money (not saying her charges aren't important as well) that are getting jailed.

Same all over, not just Hollywood.

Even tho taxes are completely bunk. My extremely (out there) roommate keeps telling me citizens technically don't have to pay taxes or something, but the legal battle isn't worth it. I don't have a clue what she's talkin about, but I'm not gonna go to jail on her word.

"I was put into a system I didn't know the nature of... I'm a child of former slaves. I got into an economic paradigm and had that imposed on me," Hill said.

"I sold 50 million units," she added. "Now I'm up here paying a tax debt. If that's not likened to slavery, I don't know what is."

I guess no one told her about the Social Contract she signed.

What a ridiculous thing to say.

Edit: Her quote, that is.

if she's a child of former slaves, those former slaves must be turning in their graves after seeing her compare slavery to paying taxes

Her parents were a high school English teacher and a computer programmer.

Then again.. she has a history of irrational statements.
