All I think anyone asks here on ATS is that you AT LEAST read a threads very first post.
Helpful hand,, sure,,, seen those kind before,,, very helpful.
I did read your opening post....I responded with this.
ANYONE can quit,cause of circumstances.Takes a stronger person to say and do when their body and mind might be telling them to do the opposite.
Again,he asked a simple question,and got a rant thrown back at him.
My personal advice was blunt. I give you someone who's advice you cant argue with......
An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all
humanity.~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
Thank you for reading the first opening post unlike your friend who admited he did not, and your advice wasn't really that blunt, I understand the
sentiment that as Americans we rise up against this sort of thing.
But really, do you think I alone can take down the IRS,, no,, and neither do I,,, thus my ''rant'' against them,,, not the A-wipes who saw nothing
more than TWO words that they decided to focus on for the duration.
I wasn't coming out in a Boa screaming "Hey Gurls",,, I causually mentioned that as a Gay Pagan I have faced religious and society's darker
side,,, and I have RISEN up against it,, and the dirty little tricks of our Government.
As I said before,, I Used to be proud to be an American,,, and deep down inside I still hold onto the what I believe are the Core American Values of
Life Liberty and My Pursuit of Happiness,,, but not at the expense of others,,, nor do I whine about my lot in life,,, Only I have kept me where i
am,,, by hard work at two sometimes three jobs at a time.
I feel what is taken from me is totally unfair as large Billion Dollar Profit making companies pay nothing into the system and I am strongarmed into
giving out my few coins so President Karhzi in Pakistan can say THANK YOU TAXPAYERS,,,, F that.
I have done everything in my power to disconnect from the bloodsucking companies that do such,,, and on top of working my Jobs,, I am working towards
self sufficient living with my own organic garden to feed myself this year. I VOTE every election time. I have done my duty as an American and
didn't try to AVOID Jury Duty,, but went KNOWING that a Jury system is all the good that is left in our justice system. I work with charities and my
communities food bank,, knowing that I am,, in the bad shape I am in,,, better off than many.
I help support my Sister and her two young children, as Dead Beat Dads are able to disappear and not participate with the children they produce. So,,
RISE UP,,,, You DAMN RIGHT I WILL.
My Comment on leaving this country, may have gotten some here pissy and that is fine,,, but we all must admit,,, and I have read some of their own
threads were they do,,, America is Falling,, and if we are on the same side,,, Why Put Each Other Down?
It amazes me that those who say they want America to cut out this crap ,, are the ones who attack those who are out in the field working to do so.
I don't need anyones validation for what I do or have done in my life, but seriously the friend you are backing is the one who started a rant by
focusing on my Mention of being Gay and Pagan.
If I had said I was a Harley Riding Masonic Red Neck,,,, would it have turned out different...
So,, as I said before,,, the likely hood of me getting the hell out of the Crumbling Fascist Police State America has become are slim,,, and while
here,,, I will definitely be a thorn in many peoples side,,, just by virtue of existing I guess.
But asuredly I am NOT Running from anything,,,
First I am HUMAN, then I am a Citizen of the World and being American by birth,, I understand what the Revolution was fought for,,, so sad others
don't and can't see that we are at that cross road again,,, it is just a bigger playing field,,, since it is a Global phenomenon.
Thanks for your advice,, and the MLK quote is something I concur with believe it or not.
