I described it above

my way of living

since you do not truly own anything anyway

why pay for it

buy a damned Boat and move onto it

let's see them take your home for back taxes

never register the boat in your name .

I stopped filing tax returns in 1979

hey , I became a non-entity after the 5th year

they never bothered me after the first ph call

heh heh

Happy birthday! You can almost be called a rebellious old-timer. Everyone loves a geezer who still has the willpower to f*** the system.

Just make sure you do whatever you can to stave off arthritis. If (in your late 130's, of course) by some stroke of poor fortune you end up in a hospital on your deathbed, you should at least have a nimble middle finger to raise to whatever death panelists/robot doctors the future holds.

Quoting Uniquestranger


" Your way of life is not doable for people with children or people that want to pursue more out of life, such as choosing a sport, higher education, art (supplies) - which all costs money. Even if hubby and I were to buy a bit of land and go off the grid, we are still trapped by paying property taxes, but hey at this age we're just going with the flow and going to make the best out of the years we have left."""""


Imagine this scene from the past

Town mayor and the State Governor looking out over the bay


Mayor :
" Look at all those boats out there , all those people living for free and not paying taxes
into the Coffers "

Governor :

" We'll have to fix that for them , we'll figure out every way that they can escape
paying into the coffers ,,,,

and pass legislation to tax them ,"


~~~~~ End


let me point out that " THEY " Know about people liking their " COMFORT ZONE "

and they figured out how to keep people trapped in it and pay for it .

they have it covered


they also know that a very small percentage of people will go under the radar , off grid ,,

underground
and non-entity

they KNOW that

they depend on people being in debt up to the nostrils

they depend on people seeking to OWN new products

they depend on the brain wash , that people NEED to strive for the higher rung
on the financial ladder in their lives .


and as you notice , THEY GOT YOU

so it works

they study and think it out ,

and then ,,,,,


pull the corral fence in tighter and tighter

until ,,, all that's left for breathing room ,,,

is the tiny spot they have you stand on .


anytime you think that you were not brainwashed to fit a profile of worker slaves


just take a very scrutinizing look at your life .

then ask : " Why did I think this way ? "

you are slammed everyday with commercials

you become a consumer junkie

you become brain washed to indulge in more products that you could live very well
without .

but it is the Carrot before the Donkey that keeps you pulling ;;;;;

" THEIR CART " for them

you can buy a house

BULLSHIT

you never own it

it is always under threat of confiscation

So true Rog. I would love to be able to buy land and disappear. They have got us where they want us. We are slaves to the system. Now there are going after third world country to do the same to their people. Not a lot of land to disappear on in UK. They would soon find us. Getting older like you, catching up. We live a simple life. Grow food etc. Still have to pay taxes and work although house is paid for.

It's a two-way street Rog, because we chose to work, buy a home, raise children and spend our hard earned money on pursuits of interest, rather than waiting for that paltry government welfare money to show up in our online bank account.

After cleaning out the basement twice in the last five years (we've lived here for over 20 years), I had to still climb over our stuff yesterday looking for something. blink.gif gaah.gif

~~~~~~~ Proposal ~~~~~

Design a Society in which , a Few Elite Members control
everybody and everything .

The species must be under that groups control

All citizens must be subdued and coerced into a status of subservience to this group .

~~~~~~ Structure ~~~~~~~

Family needs must be met , set pricing at survival only scale

set wages , to just barely meet that scale , with just a little over for savings .

Take the savings by selling a home to them and force them through that
to be in debt for all their working lives .

Use a threat to keep them compliant to the system standard .

Convince them to have " Pride in their Country " and fight Wars via that , to gain further control over Foreign competing products .


~~~~~~~ End ~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~ The real truth ~~~~~~~

You do not have a Country to take pride in

You belong to a Global Corporation , you are a " MEMBER " of the Team within
that Corporation .

You never ever have fought for your Country ( which does not exist )

You fought for the Corporation that you are a Team member of , a member , but NOT
a Manager .

As a Member , your job is to give support to the operations which keep you a willing member , and in that job , you must as well , support the Prison you will be
an inmate of , if you refuse the support .


~~~~~~ Alternatives ~~~~~~~

Life is not a struggle , unless you comply to engage in the struggle
that is designed for you by others .


as with the old man and the Sea

he at any time could have let go of the Line ,,, and the fight was over ,,,

that is not defeat , it's a wise choice to avoid a situation in which you become
obsessed and possessed by it .

The Obsession of man ,,,

it's destructive to the lives of many ,,, by one

...obsessed or possessed...or choose to fight. There's a deeper meaning here...

"Like the fish, the old man suffers something of a death on his way back to the village. He is stripped of his quarry and, given his age, will likely never have the opportunity to land such a magnificent fish again. Nevertheless, he returns to the village with his spirit and his reputation revitalized."
