I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I'd gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land -- God bless the USA.

Very pertinent Riddick.

Shut down all that corporate welfare!!!!!!
There you go man, keep as cool as you can. Face piles and piles of trials with smiles. It riles them to believe that you perceive the web they weave. And keep on thinking free. (Moody Blues)

I'm quite sure both AOC & Bernie'd be MORE THAN happy to do the honors, corps thumb their noses at taxes, they'll make 'em pay thru their noses

Heckfiar the song says 1 for you 19 for me. A 95% rate?! That thumb breakin' nostril wreckin' sinus stretcher tops 'em ALL! And if corpos complain they'll TAKE it all.

Mebbe AOC 'n' Bern outta record an edgy Hard Rock head banging cover of it at the Democratic Socialist Studios... radio play, ITunes, concerts, raves! Bern sings lead, AOC as background... Next stop, LIVE TV

I can see it now: "Ladies & gentlemen, we've got a rilly big shew for you tonight - FROM Washington DC? It's The Incredibly Fantastic FEEBLES!"

It's not only the tax rate, it is also what happens with the tax revenues.........: "Who benefits" from all those taxes being forked over to the municipal, county (in some cases), state and federal governments. Then there are those "fees", which when you get down to it, are just taxes by another name. And licenses, which you need in order to work to pay taxes......

Well the taxes for SS & Medicare ostensibly benefit seniors

We'll see what happens when both programs can't continue to provide benefits at the current rate. Meanwhile our leaders can't bring themselves to address their looming insolvency

I dunno what it is about it but if it's money falling out of the sky they're waiting for, I'd say it's looking more & more likely this will not end well

Russians by Sting


In Europe and America, there's a growing feeling of hysteria
Conditioned to respond to all the threats
In the rhetorical speeches of the Soviets
Mr. Krushchev said we will bury you
I don't subscribe to this point of view
It would be such an ignorant thing to do
If the Russian love their children too

How can I save my little boy from Oppenheimer's deadly toy
There is no monopoly of common sense
On either side of the political fence
We share the same biology
Regardless of ideology
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too

There is no historical precedent
To put words in the mouth of the president
There's no such thing as a winnable war
It's a lie we don't believe anymore
Mr. Reagan says we will protect you
I don't subscribe to this point of view
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too

We share the same biology
Regardless of ideology
What might save us me and you
Is that the Russians love their children too.

We all should hear this song on the radio today! :idea:
