As those who have been following this story are aware, Yves Smith and her buddy Lambert have taken Strike Debt's Rolling Jubilee to task in some extraordinarily long and detailed posts that can be summarized by saying that she doesn't like what they are doing and doesn't want them to do this.
The idea of buying uncollected [medical] debt on the secondary market and cancelling it rather than trying to collect it makes her nervous enough to shit bricks. She insists that doing this jeopardizes debtors in ways that cannot be fully anticipated, and that this is a clear and present danger to life and liberty -- and must be stopped forthwith.
Primarily it seems she doesn't like it because she's afraid they might get hold of some of her outstanding debt and by cancelling it might force her into paying taxes on the "gift," something she doesn't want to do.
She has repeatedly railed against the Rolling Jubilee and has issued numerous implied threats that someone -- who knows who -- should or will report them to the IRS for investigation for tax evasion or whatever.
And then she wonders why Strike Debt doesn't keep her fully informed about what is going on and how they are doing their work and whose debt they are buying and how much money they're paying themselves, and when and where they are having board meetings, and on and on and on.
It's been pretty bizarre.
This is what was in the email that was forwarded to me today via one of the Occupy lists I'm on:
