Stephen King: Tax Me, for F@%&'s Sake!

By Remy Benoit

At RSN Stephen King: Tax Me, for F@%&'s Sake!.

Mr. King tells many stories...of horror, of evil coming into its due. Each day things grow more difficult for the 99%; the banks ever asking more fees; rates for this and that going up; food prices absurdly high. Politicians are trying to buy elections with vicious campaigns. I am not young anymore. Often I do not even recognize this country. And you cannot blame it on hippies, or immigrants, or on anyone but those who will never be satisfied with the wealth, with what they wish to strip from the earth with no concern for her, for their own children and grandchildren.

And yet, as an historian, I do know that there comes a turning point where people say enough, wake up to lies, to greed, to those who will not see the wake they leave behind their plowing roads to yet another house, another dozen bathrooms with gold fixtures.

Scapegoating, placing blame on the blameless, only goes so far. What can you do in the face of all this? Help a neighbor, grow a garden this summer; vote rationally, look at campaign ads to see just how big the lies are, and ask why? If proposals do not help you, your neighbors, your great-grandchildren then they need rewriting; they need you to say, WE THE PEOPLE say UNITED WE STAND; not a handful of United Citizens with an agenda. No one should do else but pay their fair share; those who have must give back to balance the heart of the country. How do we show them to have heart? By living by ours, by teaching by deeds not words; by saying no more free rides with our votes.
