    Freeloaders keep making out. Time to get rid of entitlements for the lazy baby factories who get to send their kids to school tax free. Also the junkies if the o d then too bad f u losers . Why should some people pay taxes and not others. No where in the constitution does it say we have to pay for others. F all freeloaders welfare scum

      The “freeloaders” are those people who are willing to accept a $75,000 to $200,000 salary – which comes from robbing their neighbors at gunpoint – many of whom are struggling to survive on fixed incomes and/or mediocre jobs in a collapsing economy.

    Meanwhile people too lazy to work, or addicted people with a “disease ” continue to live better than those who worked for something. Yep, change you can believe in.

    Property taxes, especially on residential property, especially as they are levied and collected in states like PA, where there is no homestead exemption and no ceiling (i.e. no limits), are immoral and unconstitutional. We are being enslaved by corrupt government that elevates itself above God.

  • seen it all

    Greg , If you sell your excessive guns and pay your taxes or whatever debt you are liable for ? Sorry just seems a no brainer , but hey calling the sheriff to make threats would’ve been high on my list too ? What did Red call his son on that 70’s show ?

      § 1. Inherent rights of mankind.
      All men are born equally free and independent, and have certain inherent and indefeasible rights, among which are those of enjoying and defending life and liberty, of acquiring, possessing and protecting property and reputation, and of pursuing their own happiness. (PA Constitution, Art 1).

      According to the PA Constitution, ownership of property, is recognized to be an “inherent and indefeasible right”, not a privilege for those wealthy enough to pay the ever increasing amount demanded. Therefore he is actually not “liable” to pay extortion money to the “government” just to be allowed to exist.

      Actually, the “joke” is on you and everyone else who doesn’t realize that confiscatory property taxation is destroying this society. His day has arrived, your day will too.

      Exactly. If he’s a criminal then so is George Washington. It’s time to start calling confiscatory PA tax by its proper name: communism.
