I believe a self-righteous liberal Democrat with a cause is more dangerous than a Hell's Angel with an attitude.

H-Bar,
I can't get in the middle of this because I was born just days before my dad left Camp Lejuene bound for SEA. So my age prevents me from talking about this first hand. But there is a book that's called "Stolen Valor" that was written by a Army Lt the served as a Supply Officer in Vietnam and got tired of all the wrongs that are portrayed about Vietnam and set out to prove or disprove them with factual numbers based on actual mititary documents retrieved through the Freedom of Information Act. The common notion that the "18 yr poor black man" fought and died in that war while the middle-class and above white man went to college and stayed alive is not true. Just another one of the bias media's portrayal of the typical Vietman Vet that everyone beleives now.

The numbers about the amount of alcoholics and drug users that war supposably "produced" is blown way out of proportion also by Hollywood. Everyone should read that book for an eye opener.

BTW: My dad is a Vietnam Vet and I try to make it a point ot say thanks to his fellow sevicemen. Thanks Vern! I didn't know you were over there.

Steve

Yes, PA has had the system for quite sometime now.

I haven't begun to voice all the options I have in my agenda.

Wait till you hear the school funding proposals I have.
School taxes will NOT be levied against the property owner.
This is rediculous and is unfair as hell to every property owner in the country.
Renters don't pay school taxes, why not?
I think school taxes should be paid by "everyone" who works and has any kind of ajob. Instead of school property tax, EVERY person would pay a percentage of their salery. This would make it fair for everyone.
Most (average) home owners paying school taxes from their property values would have money left over.
The rich would pay more school tax because of the amount they make per year.
Even if the percentage was the same for everyone, the rich would pay the most.

This has been mentioned in PA also. It was called "Act 50"

I have just begun. My list is growing and I have kept some back for a surprise or two.

Later
DC

Re: Today\'s Society...

Darryl,
Your forgetting a really big one for your campaign and PA has succssfully used this system for as long as I can remember without a problem.
And whether rich or poor..... you don't ever hear of anyone from PA crying foul from the intercity of Philadelphia/Pittsburgh or the blue collered farmer in the NE saying the system is unfair.

FLAT TAX!!! at the end of the year you take a $1.99 calculator and times your income by a certain percentage and your done. Or for those who have a minimal grade school education you could do it in your head.
Then there is no auditing, cheating, tax shelters, savings of BILLIONS of dollars of overhead for IRS salaries, buildings, maintaining the tax code manual, etc, etc) The savings alone of overhead for this system would free up billions of federal dollars to help elsewhere... or lower the taxes period.

I'll trade the Hummer for more rifles!! The old Chevy is still kicking just fine.

Steve

Re: Today\'s Society...

Vern- I don't believe for aminute that our government was worried about the USSR or China!!! The thing that Johnson was worried about was if enough helicopters and jets didn't get shot down his arms dealing buddies in Texas would not make any money!!
Two of the biggest arms contractors were in Texas. Bell helicopters and General Dynamics.
Hell I wouldn't be surprised if they paid for the bullets to blow Kennedy's head off!!!
Our country had better equipment than China and the USSR and still does. Even though China is catching up because of Clinton allowing the export of certain technology to China. It seems to me that our Government always has some dirty dealing going on!!! We need an honest guy in office!!! Even though I voted for Bush, I still believe he is a crook!!! You gotta believe there are some oil dealings going on that are making his family some money!!!Otherwise we wouldn't have to foot the bill for Iraq. They could sell oil for the money to rebuild. There hasn't been an honest president in a long time. During Vietnam Johnson wouldn't allow SAM sites to be shot at until they were set up. They were still getting shot at but not til they were set up. OK I guess that he wanted to give them a fair fight right. Years later they find out by his tapes in the white house that we weren't even shot at in the Gulf of Tonken!!!(hope I spelled that right) He couldn't have been too afraid, he only attacked some country while being unprovoked to do so!!! I don't agree with the protestors for what they did to the brave men that fought for their country. They were attacking the wrong people. They should have been attacking Johnson for putting our troups where they didn't belong. You all were just doing your duty for your country as should be done!!! They (the liberals) could not back track and attack Johson because they were the ones that voted Kennedy/Johnson in and then voted Johnson in again. They couldn't attack their scumbag candidate so they attacked you guys!!! Another thing I like about Johson that cracks me up is that he was voted in by the liberals which is comprised of minorities. So the minority vote was big to him. Then he sent them disproportionately to die in Vietnam.(Thanks for the Vote) That would be like the Jews voting for Hitler or Stalin for president. You for one should know by the M14 to the M16 incident that Vietnam was a money grab! The M14 got the nod instead of the Stoner rifle and then when they finally rectified the situation they ordered the M16s without chrome lined chambers to try to reverse it again. You should know that something like 50% of the dead soldiers with the early M16 rifle had jammed rifles!! Sorry for carrying on but these things piss me off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
