The best way to protest is with your feet. Typical bureaucrats couldn't care less how many cyclists they kill trying to "protect them" in the same way
the Republicans couldn't care less if 100,000 lives are lost in the middle east trying to prevent one or two 9/11 style attacks where 3,000 people
die. Its not really about saving lives for them. Its about controlling others and owning them as slaves.
Wow, you think not being able to ride without a helmet on a public road makes you a slave?
Of course not. I know for a fact that being able to ride without a helmet on a public road makes me a slave. You see, my own head is supposed to be my
own property. What I put on my own head is therefore up to me if I own it. However, it isn't up to me what I put on my own head in in the state of New
York. Rather, it is up to the people who very obviously own me. If I don't decide what to wear while I'm driving, clearly I'm an owned slave. I'm
sorry you are blind to the obvious.
Am I saying I'm in awful conditions? No. I'm not in awful conditions. My slave masters have been generous and by fighting fire with fire, I keep most
of my own money and give less than half of it to my slave-owners. However you are quite ignorant of how it works in the US. Most people who earn a
significant sum of money give more than half of it to their slave masters.
The only fairly well protected freedom in the USA are my ability to tell others the exact extent of my slavery under the US regime. However, that it
turns out is highly limited. No dancing at the Jefferson memorial or you'll be arrested. No disrespecting a judge or you can be imprisoned FOR LIFE.
And people have been imprisoned for at least six months without any trial for allegedly doing so. I say "alleged" because nobody really knows.
Whats the terrible future you think my slave-masters have envisioned for me? Will the corporations take 75% of what I get instead of 40%? Will they be
more restrictive of my speech or expression? Will they send the US into 3rd world status? LOL, okay, well again, like I said, I would vote with my
feet. I've done it once and I can do it again. Its not easy but its something people should do.
Do you actually take solace in a place where you can be arrested for "disorderly conduct". Uh oh, little Jonny is skipping along the sidewalk... looks
disorderly... he needs to be arrested. There is also "contempt of court" where you can be imprisoned for life without a trial. Then there is also
"criminal mischief" and a few other charges designed to arrest people to punish people for either disagreeing with the police officer, rubbing him the
wrong way, or being the wrong color.
What you don't seem to understand is that after moving, my life improved for the better. I was able to find a job because in fact the economy is
better where I am now. A side-effect of tyranny is that it destroys people's financial lives. However, if you move to a less tyrannical place, you'll
have more options to improve your finances. Of course the move itself and re-transition is quite expensive. But, after you've gotten past that, things
can improve to where they are much better than before.
