What was the Boston Tea Party? How was America formed? The English was our masters and to whom we paid taxes to! Guess if you were around at that
time you would have turned in our founding fathers for being law breakers! I would in fact bet on that!
Taxes? So how do you feel that YOU are paying for those "Extra" American Soldiers (who would not need to be deployed) guarding poppy fields in
Afghanistan? Don't you get it? Your taxes are being wasted there! Worse those taxes you are paying has to go up as those poppy's will be heroin and
on US streets sooner than those cops will have replacement cars and thus because of the glut of heroin your taxes will rise again...... hmmm double
taxation seems like there was a war once about that little problem. American taxes are out of control! Our future grandchildren are not going to be
happy taking on the national deficit.
Again calls would have continued to be made because this "hero" did not damage the personal cars. I said that before........ there is no need to keep
repeating that police calls would not be made as that is just misinformation! Cops use their cars and are paid for their mileage! So please stop
saying that as it’s not true! Heck in the Army my last 6 months I was a documents courier to which I went to 8 locations on local base then cross
the bay to another base twice a day. More than once my military vehicle was in for maintenance with no replacement which meant I got to drive my
sports car at taxpayers’ expense and I received in 1976 the sum of $.028 per mile and loved it.
Come on America wake up the police is just "The Rich Man’s ARMY!" This was the chant “The Viet Nam Vets Against the War” chanted as we were
always surrounded by them as the city would not grant the only Vets to march on those Veteran Day Parades the legal permit to do so. This may have
changed now as National Guard and Reservist are now sent to more rich man’s illegal wars but in 1977 to 1983 they were not and thus were not
Veteran’s units! It’s sad when hero's need to break the law to march in their parade!!! TPTB refused the permits the Rich Man’s Army tried to
deny our rights as the only Veterans to march in our parade! Oh what were we protesting? The rich stopped funding VA hospitals and other promised
before enlistment benefits which was owed to the American Vet for services rendered! Besides the VA Hospital lack of funding that almost cost me my
left foot and left me in a VA Hospital 59 days for a simple broken leg other benefits such as GI Bill to go to Uni. were hit! They changed the rules
on payments after the war was over and after we did what we were ordered to do. This GI Bill payments that were delayed was blamed on computers but
really was designed to have poor vets to drop out of Uni as they cannot pay their bills. In those days it took 4 months from first day in class to
receive the first cheque! I know as I had to drop out a few times to go to work earn some money and then go back to school and those 4 months started
again! I had to have earned enough to cover the government lack of payment but that cheque in 4 months does not cover interest charges on money
borrowed to cover Uncle Sams responsibilities’ as contractual obligations. My point here is that TPTB forced people like me to protest then sent
their Rich Man’s Army to harass us in performance of that protest. But as a tax payer you must have backed this! I say that as we were the only
ones arguing over these issues whilst the public turned their backs. When these wars are over they will return the soldiers stateside and there will
be a mass cull of soldiers and since there is no jobs these veterans will learn what I did in a peace time they will want to go to school to better
their chances and since they don't have job will rely on the Veterans Hospitals and history will repeat itself. In the mean time I support those
willing to stand up against the war machine YOUR tax money is funding and is out of control!
Edited to add this That joint or plant the farmer was arrested for would have been legal in Co. Ca. n Wa (maybe other states as well) as a farmer
would have the aches and pains to qualify for legal medical MJ! How's that right?!?
Have a read here what I was taught in High School before the Army!
