Tar and feathering -- the new retro in-thing. Nothing like "circulating vindictive menaces" as Pres. Washington once proclaimed against (see below). And as for tax collectors, you don't have to go all the way back to biblical times: the Whiskey Rebellion (1791-94).

Yeah! Anyone that can't afford to pay cash just doesn't deserve to own their own home.

Either that, or we can get loans from tofu farmers and unicorn herders.
