I am a Taxicrat.
I pick up anyone regardless of race, creed, color, religion, political beliefs,and even if you might puke in my car...and generally 99% of the time we get along just fine. I lost friends in 9/11, have had friends fight in the Gulf War, The Iraq war, and still have people I know over in Iraq fighting this war. I have driven soldiers here in New York on leave to only hear how they can't wait to come home too. Young men and women. I have only one feeling on this matter as I have always felt...
I want them home...
Here safe within the boundaries and safety of our home. I want to see them for their birthdays or hear from them when their baseball team beat mine, even though they know I won't answer my phone when they do that...I want the people from Goldman Sachs to go to jail and not just the leaders of these institutions say "We won't take a $65 million dollar BONUS on top of our $600,000 salary like we did last year. " Send them to the front lines. They did not watch over our money....they stole it. These bankers and government officials have stolen too much of our hard earned money while our young men and women are dying protecting these private profitable organizations and our freedom. I am mad.
I saw some interesting videos recently that I thought were well done. These first two videos were from a you tuber named Sinistar the watchman who with a Guy Fawkes mask on claims to be a proud veteran against the war in Iraq. This is what his opinion is before you watch his videos "Now I must warn you, I'm ex-military, served in Iraq unfortunately, and I have an extremely low tolerance for stupid people and stupid bullshit. I'm not interested in your opinion, I just put info out there. Only open minded people are welcome here." Here is the link to his page Sinistar131313 which has many informative and maybe conspiracy driven theory videos, but that's for you to decide...
I'll share them with you and look forward to your thoughts.
This first video begins with a scene with John Wayne saying he likes straight talk and then a scene from "The Great Dictator" which has Charlie Chaplain in his first speaking role, and during the video you hear some of the speech he gives over the scenery, which I will also post the whole speech later.
This next video is of Aaron Russo .In 2006, Russo wrote, produced, directed, and starred in a documentary feature film entitled America: Freedom To Fascism which if you click on it you can watch the movie.It is long though. Check out his first link, a very interesting driven man.
Aaron also got to interview former IRS agents.Which they seem to have thrown the constitution out.
Now I find the following very interesting, for last month as I went into my day job on Wall St I saw a promotion for the corporation Navistar. They make trucks ...and Military trucks....And they had them parked all day in front of the exchange.
With fuel prices at an all-time high,the truck LoneStar® had to provide superior aerodynamics to enhance fuel economy. LoneStar makes the most of every drop of diesel with its styled hood and grille, large bumper, D-shaped cans and skirts. In the end, that puts more money in drivers’ pockets.Below is the LoneStar Truck....Pretty much the newest hippest truck out there... LoneStarFeatures from their website if you care.
This is where it got interesting, yet frightening...I see an advanced new military vehicle which the website for Navistar describes it as such. International® MaxxPro. Protects Against the Toughest Attacks.
The International® MaxxPro, Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle incorporates the latest design in armoring technology and has been extensively tested by the military. The V-Shaped hull design is a proven technology used in theater today and coupled with other survivability factors; our vehicle is built with crew protection in mind.
The MaxxPro is built to withstand ballistic arms fire; mine blasts; IEDs; Nuclear, Biological and Chemical environments, that threatens the safety of its crew. Armoring flexibility allows upgrades to achieve the correct level of protection, based on mission requirements. International's proven severe service platform puts quality, durability and reliability where you need it most—on the battlefield.
All this tells me is WHAT war are we planning next to use these vehicles, and all the other vehicles they are making ?!?!? WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS !!Check out all their new military vehicles, some being commercial trucks so as perhaps to transport oil safely?? Hmmmmmm.NavistarDefense-List of all vehicles. Oh and according to their website , Navistar has won 25 of the 28 military contracts bid. Not a bad track record. Perhaps the next Halliburton? I wonder how many bids I would win if I tried.
Water Jugs on both sides in the back of vehicle. Maybe we are headed for Venezuela next.
With all my experience driving, I still believe a yellow cab is tougher.
This is the full inspiring speech from 1940 "The Great Dictator" which for those who don't know Charlie Chaplin, it was his first speaking movie, he was famous for silent movies but as you can see in this scene he was a hell of an actor. This still resonates loudly. Just listen and compare today's changes.
The reason I would like comments, even anonymous ones is to get a feel of how ALL of us are feeling. Be anonymous or not. Let us know how you feel as I told you. A small step , but one in the direction that will show bloggers have views and opinions and these are from THE PEOPLE!!
AND these views matter, just ask my blogger friend from This Just In who made it all the way to the front page of the New York Times for her Health care views and prescription medicine facts, AND ALL she does for the troops overseas as her son is one of them. She is a true patriot, read her sight and be in awe of giving, that can not be ignored. I hope you found these as interesting as I did and hope that"Change" is on its way, because our country's diapers are very dirty. The Government is only a letter away from the"Goner-nment".
Hard for me to follow up Charlie Chaplain, but I am not a dictator, I am am just a Taxicrat called The King Of New York Hacks. Peace all, and if you have friends or loved ones overseas, don't forget the holidays are coming and donate to the proper causes, as I wish them all a safe passage HOME. My next post will most certainly be on a lighter note, Peace out .
