    Lord i Pray that we stay One Nation Under GOD, and United that all should be Free.

    Lower all taxes while we still have a United States of America.

    When this Old World starts getting you down. From Pollution the cost of OIL, Heating Fuel,The Fuel you put in your Vehicles, You Electric Bills from
    cooling air conditioners and lights not to speak of the Evil. The TAX that all Governments Federal, State, County and City put on everything they can thing of.

    They are supposed to serve us. Not put a burden on its people. That they are elected to serve all the people you, not their own Pocket Books.

    The Wicked keep putting higher taxes on everything. Making it a Heavy Burden on many that are already struggling just to put food on the table.

    Too many Americans have lost their home to the tax collector or to foreclosures from the unjust bankers greed. More are out of work and lost their homes then in the GREAT DEPRESSION, in the last ten years. All Americans and many Nations need good jobs and more of them. Not more TAXES.

    All Taxes need to be lowered now while there is still time to save America.

    There is a Industry that will employ workers and is growing by more then 50% every year. There is a clear way for all up on the roof the Sun Light is free fuel from GOD. Some wicked in Government have been backing Coal, Oil, Gas and the Nuclear industries for too many years.

    These kickbacks to them were called Subsidizing Industry Technology. Most all Wise Men and smart Economist and Environmentalists call this padding their pockets and subsidizing back to the
    Stone Age.

    The best deal would be to lower Taxes for all this is not the Roman Empire.

    The Chinese Know Renewable Energy is a good thing. Most of the rest of the World is still a slave to Oil, Coal and Nuclear Power. All the Governments of the World now know it is wise to use Renewable Energy it is the Local Governments that are a little slow to learn what is best for all not just there pocket book.

    They fear people going off the grid all that tax money they will no longer be able to take from you. Wind and Solar Farms are growing all over the Earth. This could have happened years ago if the greedy wicked were stopped by the Real Good.

    The Freedom to get your own Power from the Wind and Sun, Solar Energy has been there for years. Are Libraries and Schools should have been the first to have gone Solar and Renewable Energy. And why are they not? Churches are all over the Planet. They are going to Solar Energy.

    Thank GOD for the Pioneers like John Schaeffer that Started Real Goods The first and Best catalog for Renewable Energy and Scientist Bill Young at the FSEC Florida Solar Energy Center and Monica D. Key Lindbergh for many years wrote to our legislators promoting Solar and Renewable Energy and many others.

    These Pioneers helped put Wind, Solar And Renewable Energy in the Spotlight for all the World to see.
    The Great Scientist Albert Einstein Stared it with a Dream that the day would come that all the World would use Solar Energy. His many years of work with the law of the Photoelectric Effect, and showing this to the World won him the Nobel Prize in Physics. We still do not teach this to our young.

    GOD Bless all that help tell this to the World

    All Taxes need to be lowered cut in half or there will be a lot more Poor and needy and not in just other countries. This coming year the World will see hunger like never before. More then 100 million will be sick from malnutrition going with out food. Taxing the poor and taking there Land away from them is Wicked. Very soon the Rich will become the Poor.

    If your Legislature will not lower Taxes vote them out of office and VOTE in someone that will Lower your Taxes. If your Son or Daughter was raised in a christian Home we need them in our Government as Leaders.

    United We Will Always Stand
    In GOD We Trust
    True Patriots
    GOD Bless
    and May HE Guide you all.

    The Lord’s Little Helper

    Many a Nation have fallen from taxing their people to Death. You want Prosperity and for thing to Flourish and grow lower all taxes. You want thriving, success, or good fortune for only a few, keep over taxing all.
    Solar, Wind and Renewable Energy Freedom from OIL. The Humanitarian thing to do. Solar Energy.
    Why let the Wicked in office in our Nation if they do not believe in GOD and the Bible vote them out of office.

    Hey! I took this photo in Korea. It was August 2004 at Camp Casey and the fireworks were the send off of the 1st Brigade deploying from Korea to Iraq! I actually won $500 for this photo in an Army competition! Thanks for using my image! (

    Tangosix: Good for you, brother. Haiti’s is the only successful slave revolution in history. I’ve been there as a volunteer and it’s an amazing place.

    Still the 4th up here in the 49th state. Time to hit the boucan!

    “What the hell ? Thirteen colonies of the British Empire decided they wanted a share of the impending land grab to the west of the continent and concocted a “no taxation without representation” spin on the whole deal.”
    Can you give details/sources supporting this?

    “It all started here”

    What the hell ? Thirteen colonies of the British Empire decided they wanted a share of the impending land grab to the west of the continent and concocted a “no taxation without representation” spin on the whole deal.

    I know this is hard to stomach but that’s the way it went down. It didn’t help that the Brits had a hugely incompetent brutal monarch at the time that had no bargaining sensibilities to the extremities of the empire.

    It all started here ? Try Runnymede 1215

    Hello D.E.Reddick,

    no problem,I was worried for a moment that my post might have been taken the wrong way.
    Anyway,it is no longer the 4th of July here and thanks to Pauline I am now getting engrossed in the Haitian Revolution.

    I was replying to Gravy. I found his proposal to be provocative, to say the least. Your posting just happened to appear following his and while I was composing mine.

    I celebrated the 4th in our Church, thanking God for freedom!

    Hello to Pauline and all our friends!

    Hello Pauline,

    I must admit I had never heard of the Baratarians before but that Jean Lafitte appears to have led an interesting life.

    D.E.Reddick,I thought it quite a shame that the new British Bay class dock ships did not have more interesting names like Aboukir and Penobscot.

    Tangosix, if I may; without Andrew Jackson, his backwoods rabble and the Baratarians, the U.S. would be Canada. Just to be clear. See, we celebrate lots of things on this day.

    Happy 4th, Mike, to you and yours and all your U.S. readers.

    Historically speaking, our responses have generally been quite simple. We name what we build to defend our overall success in ways to remind ourselves of what we have accomplished and honor those who founded that success – separate from any foreign empire. Examples follow:

    USS Bunker Hill (CV-17 & CG-52)
    USS Cowpens (CVL-25 & CG-63)
    USS Yorktown (CV-5, CV-10, & CG-48)
    USS Independence (CVL-22, CVA-62, & LCS-2)
    USS Freedom (LCS-1)
    USS George Washington (SSBN-598 & CVN-73)
    USS Thomas Jefferson (APA-30 & SSBN-618)
    USS Patrick Henry (SSBN-599)
    USS Benjamin Franklin (SSBN-640)
    USS John Adams (SSBN-620)

    Hello Mike Burleson,

    I hope you enjoy whatever it is people get up to over there on this holiday…sorry vacation,celebrating the anniversary of the United Kingdom gaining independence from the United States,in theory at least.
    What do you guys do on the 4th of July anyway?

    Or this?:

    I am sure that no alchohol will be involved in that whatever it is.

    Just think,if it wasn’t for George Washington and others,the United States today would be….just like Canada:

    Happy 4th of July.

    I believe that America would have developed more quickly and now be a further advanced society if it had remained part of the British Empire. The civil war would not have taken place and you would have had access to Londons capital markets to develop your infrastucture more quickly than you did. It will be interesting to hear your responses!
