 Wrong; I'm right.  I gave an example.  The whole criminal codes of any
 jurisdiction are also exactly those.  What is your tax-fraud civil

 Saying my comparison is specious, is simply saying you elevate
 physicians to some untouchable plane--or denigrate building
 construction to the pits.  Don't you ever catch MDs at tax fraud?
