    Hey! You must write all of the childish name-calling that other Libfarts on this board use! All one needs is to look at all of the white dronebots marching for rights of the "oppressed minorities" to see all the hate and loathing in their faces and their voices. You never saw one of the angry little liberals come up to mike and camera to shout little degenerations as they threaten the camera operator? Ah, such good little citizens. Such good little fools. The causes they march for don't even exist and they are sent into motion as the useful pawns for the anarchist America-haters of the world.

    This reminds me of two ironic truths. In the civil war johnny reb, who often didn't have enough to keep his family fed, no less be able to afford a slave, fought so that rich land owners could have slaves.

    Later people living in trailer parks were convinced to support repeal of the estate tax, what was called the death tax, that put a tax on inherited estates (at that time) of over $3.5 million dollars. And somehow people who could only dream of ever paying that tax supported its repeal.

    You are ignorant. The CW was not about freeing the slaves. The idea is absurd. Don't you know that

    1. The Union had four slave states (KY MD DE MO) during the war

    2. There were many Union generals who were slave owners during the war.

    We don't hate the PRs. But we do say since they are exempt from federal income taxes, they don't get a bailout.

    No he wasn't. I'm sure he filed a tax return every year. There may have been years when he didn't pay any taxes because of offsetting losses but that's not an exemption from income tax. THINK
