The thieving politicians justify the heavy taxes imposed on fuel bought by hard working American taxpayers, as well as fuel bought in the US by Canadian trucking companies, by claiming they are being used to maintain roadways and highways. Was that just another of their usual lies? Speaking for the hard working overtaxed average American, I can only say if that is the case, we are shocked, SHOCKED I say.

It's a brand new form of terrorism folks, it's called legalized robbery in the form of taxes and fees. Remember, if you buy it they will figure out a way to skim off from both you, the buyer, and the seller.

Those cheap fruits and vegetables from South America looks very attractive for another source of income for our politicians, we can expect the import fees for these products to get some attention as well.

The politicians busted up the mafia in the US because the mafia were their competition in shaking down the public.

But at least the mafia gave something in return - gambling, women, etc. The parasite politicians steal our money and give it to illegals and 150+ foreign countries in "aid" including Cuba, China and Veeeniz-wayla!

If only we could return to the days of serfdom. The lord of the land would typically charge we peasants only 30% and he would often permit us to work it off by preforming labor for him. Even King George dared not impose confiscatory taxation as does post 60s 70s revolutionary Government.
