It takes a Republican...

To find stupid taxes we are paying and fight to get rid of them.
Fortunately, some in Congress agree, too. Rep. Gary Miller (R-Calif.) and nearly 100 co-sponsors recently introduced legislation to repeal the tax. USA Today noted: "This year, consumers and businesses will fork out another $6 billion in general excise taxes -- enough to pay for the Spanish-American War all over again, notes Rep. Christopher Cox, (R-Calif.)." Other businesses supporting repeal include Verizon, SBC, Time Warner, Radio Shack, Comcast, and America Online.
The article also states that many of the anti-war crowd are opposed to the tax. Sadly, their dismay is founded on a faulty premise: They think it is feuling the war in Iraq.

Of course, these are also the people that think there is nothing wrong with the ammurkin amarqin U.S. skrool system. If these people had spent more time reading history books instead of rewriting them, they might know the reason this was levied on the American taxpayer. Of course, they might also learn that people occasionally take baths.

The downfall of civilization continues.....

Great post, thanks. Don't know if you've seen these two short videos from Iraq yet or not, but both show the US Military engaging in some very dubious actions. I have them up on my site at www.minor-ripper.blogspot.com ..You have to wonder what these soldiers were thinking when videotaping this stuff...

Funny how those on the left think that the actions of a couple of boneheaded soldiers represents the entire military, but that maniacs blowing up innocent men, women and children in Israel, the WTC, etc. only represent the "fringe" of a so-called "religion of peace."
