we don't have debtor's prisons anymore

The city of Savannah was settled by a few aristocrats and a gang of rapscallions given the choice of rotting in debtor's prison or sailing the the New World. Anybody able enough chose door #2, because it was better to take a chance than rot in jail.

Of course, we don't throw people in jail for debt anymore, unless they owe taxes to the government. I've said it before and I'll it say again--- you DO NOT "own" anything anymore. You RENT from government, and if you don't pay, government will fry you.

"Private property," my ass. Richard Hatch just ate a jail sentence more severe than what a rapist or an armed robber would receive for a crime of violence, and his "sin" was a failure to pay income taxes to our benevolent, all-caring federal government. I ain't a Richard Hatch fan, but that sentence seems kinda harsh to me.

He won the money by being a "Survivor," and that's the LAST THING government wants you to be today. If you DO NOT need government help, government will make you wish that you did. It's all part of that brutal fist helping hand that government offers today. Kiss it, right on the holy ring, or go to jail.

Bejus. We once fought a rebellion against the most powerful nation in the world over a tax on tea. Now, thanks to our "freedom," we cough up almost half of every penny we earn (IF you WORK) to a government that is more oppressive than ANYTHING our founding fathers could imagine in their wildest dreams.

We've certainly come a long way, baby...


I think that's why I can't form a strong opinion on illegal immigrants. Sure it pisses me off the way they drain the system, but hell, I'm jealous of them. To think of actually keeping the money I earn makes me wish I was an illegal.

AND ... let's not forget the brutal ass raping that men get in divorce court, where the laws, the courts and the lawyers are ALL lined up against the male. Way to go, feminazis!

No one owns property; you are merely leasing it from the government under the guise of taxes.

Course, Rob . . .

As you said a few weeks ago, I nutted out on the Constitution . . . yeah, sure I did. I believe in it, and y'all don't.

Smif--when you wake up and realize the America you believe in disappeared during WWII, and that supporting the military as it mindlessly does the bidding of the IiC's (Idiots-in-Charge), then you will have a clue.

Till then, your blatherings about government are just that that . . . you keep suppoting the same bullshit you state you hate.

Makes sense, doesn't it? Three years ago I told you to wake up and smell the coffee, but hell, you had a blog and a reputation to defend, and I was your perfect target.

But you keep on keeping on admitting I was right. As they say in Texas . . .

I appreciate ya!

:-) (Ok, Gut Groupies--cut loose)
