Loc: What! Me Worry?
'
Once again in the turning course of time it is here again --- the melancholy anniversary of the most dreadful day in American history, the day that did so much to blight the shining possibilities of this continent. I seek shelter in the shade of cypresses, in deep mourning, and weep at the ruin of so many bright hopes.

How ironic that, as one runs over the absurd slanders against King George and the Home Government which fill the so-called "Declaration of Independence" of the insurrectionary terrorists, one is struck by how much so many of them are in fact true of the present US government and its cat's paws, either at home or in its rampages abroad :

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has made Judges dependent....

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent...swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies....

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution....

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us

For protecting them, by a Mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit....

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent

For depriving...in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury

For transporting...beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences

For abolishing the free System of English Laws

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments

He has plundered...seas, ravaged...Coasts, burnt...towns, and destroyed the lives of...people

He is at this time transporting large Armies of...Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy...of a civilized nation.

And all this over a tax? Oh man, you are hilarious.

Perhaps he wants to take all the health insurance cards and dump them in Boston Harbour.

But I agree with you, Phil. Violent revolution? All over some piddling little tax? No one who was sane would ever do that!!
