Why Republicans Are Wrong About Taxes

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.

    Yes, most power lines and phone lines are privately owned. Although there are municipal utilities in some areas.

    But, the sign held by one of the protesters, “Cut Taxes Not Defense”, really sums up the stupidity of the teabaggers. How do you pay for that defense without taxes? The loans from China don’t pay the bills for defense!

    These are the same people who oppose any government health care, except their Medicare and V.A. medical care!

    We don’t need voter id, we need voter intelligence!

    they have to be planned for and approved, or I guess under a teabagger administration utilities would be able to run lines wherever they want. And I think after a storm most cities’ streets departments are out clearing fallen trees and debris, or in winter plowing the streets so that the utility workers can get to the downed lines. I hope the socialists keep their damned government hands off of these people’s social security and medicare and veteran’s benefits, they don’t need no gubment programs. I pray that the protester’s don’t burst a blood vessel, like the one woman leaning into the street with her fist and a scowl, or accidently fire their concealed weapons, so they don’t have to have them damn firefighters or EMT’s haul them to the hospital in a government ambulance. “Let’s throw Thelma in the pickup Elmer, and drive by county hospital, we’ll go to the other side of town for Aurora.” . At least the signs were spelled right this time, and no nazi references. altho i guess defense programs are paid for with monopoly money. As Michelle Bachmann says, people should keep ALL of their money

    I didn’t know that power lines and phone lines were owned and run by taxpayers. Why send out all those WE energy trucks after a storm? I’m sure DPW would fix the lines a lot quicker.
