“I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was 90,” Epstein told The Nation, as two officers walked her to a police van. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re 90.”

70 years of hollow jestures

I hope I have her energy, but clearly, she should have been doing something more productive.

Either fight the system head on - Like Ron Paul in 2008, or George Washington in 1776, or route around them like like a gypsy.

The price of Liberty is Eternal Vigilance.

She fought the system head on, she's been protesting most of her life, apparently.

Not questioning her intent

But her strategy, by head on, I mean that we have to do more than bitch. You have to be the change that you want. that requires action, not complaining. Power never concedes anything.

they should have pepper sprayed her

maybe she'll be deported ...

The Officers that make these arrests

and their chiefs that back them up just don't understand what kind of trouble they're getting into.

They really, really don't.

They're being scouted by a lot of different groups who don't respect the Law. Their information is being disseminated.

Think of identity theft for Officers, only, the people wanting the information don't want money....

I'm telling you, the pot is about to boil over somewhere in this Country. It might not be Ferguson.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

It's strange to me why people would resort to violence...

before quitting paying taxes.

No kidding

They can print longer than we

They can print longer than we can stay out of jail. Ultimately it would work, but you can't lead the tax protest from the inside.

The feds would divide and conquer, starting by arresting the tax protestors starting with A. B falls in line shortly thereafter.

If everybody is in jail

who's going to pay taxes?

Slave labor

Did plantation owners need to collect "taxes" from their slaves, in order to make a profit?

Taxes are collected as a variant form of human-ranching; the masters have discovered that free-range cattle are more productive than penned-up beasts. But the cattle pen can still be used, when they wish. Putting folks on the chain gang inspires those left "free" to greater obedience.

correct.

"Works" is a relative term. It may not work as well, but it still "works".
