TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY!

Hey, that's catchy. Somebody should base a party name on it.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all white, property owning men are created more or less equal, in theory.

Hold on. We'll be getting to the "Saved yer asses in WWII part" soon enough.

The whole of US history in <50 posts, why the hell not?

Seriously, not much. That was just the day a document was printed.

Right.

So what happened about the RI militia uniforms?

Geribaldi - 01 Jul 2013 19:09:02 (#16 of 169)

The Founders which started this country would be astounded that it lasted this long and wonder why today's population is so quiet and docile in the face of out of control taxes and an increasingly oppressive federal government.

We deserve what we get.

rearranged - 01 Jul 2013 19:14:01 (#17 of 169)

Or get what you want?

geri, they said "no taxation without representation." I don't recall the founders ever presuming to set a limit for how high taxes imposed by legislatures could go. I sure can't find it in the constitution.

have you recently contacted Alexander Hamilton in a seance?

I'm heading over to this place to load up the trunk (that's "boot" in UK-ese) for Thursday night:

If my car trunk has a gas fume leak, and an unfortunate spark, I might not make it back.

Wish me luck!
