If You Hate Taxes & Government, Please Kindly Stop Doing The Following…

Hate The Government?

Discussion topic submitted by: Scott Hacker, Taboo Jive blogger/admin Just a few thoughts on this line of thinking. When it comes to venting, be sure your anger and frustration are aimed in the right direction.

Corporate Takers!

Privatized Elections Trump Democracy

More and more, multi-millionaires and billionaires are hiding behind patriotic-sounding organizations that do their bidding – many paying no taxes – to marshal mercenary companies who in turn outsource to professional snoops and trackers secretly collecting data, and hiring production companies which produce attack ads against political opponents.
