    No. I was planning on getting myself to them, not the other way around.

    The roads you travel on were paved from the dirty slimy immoral people you hate so much. Your life as it is now, in almost every way is due to those people. You talk a big talk tigger, but you don't walk the walk. If you did, you wouldn't be using the medicine, you would live in some other country fending for yourself.

    You rely on society and therefore directly support that society with taxes, payments to those dirty slimy immoral people, and you help support the system you despise. You may not like it which is fine, but you are sacrificing all your morals each and every day to support it if we are to take your authoritarianism seriously.

    Which is why I go out of my way to pay as little in taxes as possible, TNE. That's part of why I will never own a home (removing all property taxes), why I tend to keep my motor vehicles as long as possible (reducing my excise taxes), and don't work any more OT than absolutely necessary (reducing my income tax). I also do certain things to (legally) hide as much of my income from taxation as possible. Trust me, I have no more interest in putting any more money in the Government's pocket than necessary. Now, if the Government ran properly, I'd have no problem paying significantly more in taxes than I do now.

    You are correct that unfortunately I do have to rely on the system that I despise. It's not something I like at all, but rather something that Fate has forced upon me. I have several of the complications of a malady known as Sturge-Weber Syndrome and that requires me to have access to medical treatment regularly, whether I like it or not. I had a Grand Mal seizure at age 4. I had glaucoma surgery at age 18. More than likely I'm going to have to have a knee replaced before I'm 50. I have regularly considered whether or not it would simply be easier just to take the proverbial "Long walk off the short pier", and have come close a couple of times because of my disgust at what I have to sacrifice at times to continue living.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    what i was talking about is the fact that despite the accusation by the protesters that the judicial system is bought and paid for and works only for the wealthy, the case that they filed was ruled on in a fair equal legal manner. Which indicates a working justice system, which can those people in those Corporation to justice.
    Sure.
    I was never accusing the justice system of being rigged. However in SOME CASES the justice system fails miserably.

    Yes, we agree on this point.


    Sure.

    You were not, but the accusation comes from many in the OWS movement. The judges ruling only assumes that a few officers violated the protesters rights. It is a far cry form Corporations and the 1% manipulating the system in their favor. if it were true that the Government and the judicial system were in control by Corporations and the 1% no judge would have made such a ruling. Especially right now when there is the appearance of the movement dying or at least returning to its small numbered fringe reality. Plus OWS likes to claim that the media is under control of Corporations and the 1% yet we keep hearing about OWS. Perhaps OWS is stretching the truth? Wouldnt that dishonesty just aid those that they are protesting against?

    Well its a fact that it is



    and the 1% yet we keep hearing about OWS.
    Not really not anymore.
    First they ignored the movement painted it as a joke. Then they said **** maybe they are something, then they started arresting people, and then they painted them as a bunch of anarchists radicals burning ****...

    Perhaps OWS is stretching the truth? Wouldnt that dishonesty just aid those that they are protesting against?
    What truth? What that the media is owned and ran by corporations? That isnt a lie at all... IT iss....

    What does any of that have to do with keeping off the road? There are plenty of things you cannot do while you are also exercising free speech.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    If you want to see it that way, yes. You can't claim freedom of speech when yelling, "Fire!" in a crowded theater either. Oh my, all your rights are gone!
