Humor us, how isn't it robbery?
If you think taxes are really robbery, then why do you hand it over? You call me a coward for handing over twenty bucks,but you are handing over thousands and you do not even have a gun pointed at you?

I see taxes as an agreement we have made through our system to pay for infrastructure and protection for our country. Call it socialism if you wish, I do not care. But this is the system we have. You have the freedom to leave if you really hate it that much. Good luck finding a country that has no tax. Singapore is not one of them.

I have tried to refrain from replying to Gail and the like. I have done all I intend to do to prove to you or anybody else here that I am not a fake poster. You and the rest can believe what ever you choose. You have a fake poster who claims to be you. Do you respond all the time? No, but sometimes you do even though you say it is hard to engage in discourse with those who aren't signed in. I registered and signed in and yet you still find it hard to believe that I am not a fake. WTF, man I could accuse anyone of you of the same thing. I have no idea who the fakes are and I am not going to get myself all rattled trying to figure it out.

That's the weakness of Topix, there is no accountability.One thing I can guarantee, the"fake"1909 isn't going anywhere, he/she doesn't have to, after all, what can happen?

Everyone has to pay taxes in some form. If you don't you can be prosecuted. The more blatant or defiant, the more likely the IRS will come after you. Federal Government has an unlimited check book so they could bankrupt you while putting you in jail going through the process. I get democrats are all about scoial issues. Blacks, gays and decriminalizing illegal activies and people.

However, with out the finances, there is no social. People have no money. Or they horde. Stockpile and so on.

Now to your point. Yes. Taxation without representation is a crime. It is how and why America started over 200 years ago. Taxing the wealthy, or well off, "just a little more" is robbery because you are taking from someone who earned it or manages their wealth well only to hand it over to someone who hasn't. Entitlements and handouts are single handedly bankrupting America because there is no return on investment. Investing in our military and the like is a return on investment because it is tangible and materials can be resold with depreciation factored in. How do you depreciate a human on unemployment for 99 weeks or welfare? You can't. There is no value.

So, again, entitlement programs like welfare and food stamps wic and so on, yes, help some short term for humanitarian reasons, but those humanitarian reasons only go so far when it comes to OTHER PEOPLES MONEY. Which is what taxes are. OTHER PEOPLES MONEY. How can stand any where in America and act as if those kicking into the pot have no leg to stand on or not in any position to question how their money is being spent? Again, shows your lack of experience in business. Even you have a right to question how your portion is being spent. But you believe in a different ideology that is a "sugar sprinkles and unicorn's" utopia fairy tale where everyone gets along and their is no conflict.

The rest of us will come visit you when we need a break from reality.

They asked for the war in Iraq, but refuse to pay for it. Their greed caused the economic crisis, now they do not want to pay to fix it.
Keep playing the victim hypocrite
No, I am not. I dismiss everything you say as fast as I dismiss anything Rachel Madcow has to say.

Dude!! She would be a great match for you bro. Give her a call or email and line that shit up. You and her could have talks to whee hours of the morning arguing to the point to see who will have the last say.

They keep advertising testosterone supplements for old dudes on TV.Do we really need a bunch of Old dudes running around, with testosterone coming out their ears? When has an abundance of testosterone EVER helped a man think more clearly? Now men can be just as dumb at eighty as they were at fifteen.

Have you ever said something to someone, and soon as you said it, realized you TOTALLY SCREWED UP? Nine times out of ten, when a person does that, there's no way to repair the damage.All you can do, is feel bad, for a long time.

As a matter of fact, what is the true purpose of Topix? Is it to promote an exchange of ideas? Nope.The purpose of Topix, is to give a person a chance to harass people that they disagree with.Its an old cliche', but if everybody on Topix is right, who the heck is wrong?

Why don't you send Waco another private message and whine to him about it? Tell him you're really not Gail that you're Allen 101 and that you're a cross between Linda Carter and Dixie Carter, as if he cares. You're actually an insult to Gail. As far as your normal hillybillyism goes, I don't understand bunions and gravediggers. Must be a hillbilly thing. Now run along and ready yourself for a big night with one of your male relatives.
You think Waco hasn't private messaged me? Your post sure says alot about his character and your's alike. I bet botox for a two faced old prune like yourself gets mighty expensive.

When anyone makes the declaration that they have the legal "right" to kill me without a trial, indictment or even public hearing, I would be foolish not to question their reason for that declaration. Such action would be and the declaration itself is contrary to the US Constitution. From my perspective, any US citizen who does not question that declaration IS insane. I do not put that kind of trust in any man.

Allen i've emailed six or seven people on Topix, you emailed both me and bacon when you signed in, but I already told bacon and emlu that I'd responded to your emails.I didn't ask you for a fucking date.I still think you're Gail.And, if anything you say about yourself is true, I don't think you've got any right to call ANYBODYan old prune, being as you're no spring chicken.
