Out of the Blue

Today is the debut of Kill Bill Vol. 2... I'm really looking forward to that one. More guns and action are on tap in The Punisher, but in spite of my life-long affection for comic books, I'm a little dubious about this one... I think it might have to do with that creepy black wig/dye job Thomas Jane sports in the promos reminding me too much of Dolph Lundgren in that awful original. On the other hand, Rebecca Romijn-Stamos is easier on the eyes than Lou Gossett, so this could be tolerable regardless...

These tax dodgers must be pretty naive. I hate taxes as much as the next guy, but like em or not they're the foundation of our government's ability to provide services to us. ...
Bound and determined on that are you? Never heard of the pay for services bit or anything else. Bet you didn't know that you didn't pay income tax until WWI(maybe WWII) either. The whole point of that was to pay for the war. We both operated, and survived fine without government taking money out of our pockets on a regular basis. Fire depts. are paid for by local taxes, same for police. This is calling for the removal of Federal Income taxes, not local or state taxes.

I'd almost say that these people are libertarians, but they might not be at that point yet. The federal government should exist to protect the nation...that's it. No more, no less. Let the states handle what they want.

You can take that, or leave that as you wish.
