Germany Raids Tax Cheaters’ Homes

From FOX, via Drudge:

BERLIN (AP) — German authorities launched dawn raids on the homes of over 200 suspected tax cheats Tuesday, acting on information gleaned from a CD containing the confidential account details of thousands of Swiss bank clients.

There’s no way that Germans launching mass raids on groups of people they feel are moneygrubbing hoarders… yeah… there’s no way this could go wrong.

Then again, the German police knocking on Timmy Geithner‘s door and asking for “income tax papers, please”, might not be so bad.

There’s a joke about the difference between heaven and hell, and how it’s just a matter of who does what jobs.

In heaven, the English are the cops, the Germans are the engineers, the French are the lovers, the Italians are the cooks, and the Swiss run everything.

In hell, the English are the cooks, the Italians are the engineers, the Swiss are the lovers, the Germans are the cops, and the French run everything.
