Reid: Shutdown would have crushed VA’s Cherry Blossom Festival

It’s a good thing that a deal was struck to avert a shutdown.

In addition to the federal funding of Nevada’s Cowboy Poetry Festival, Reid found another essential service provided by the federal government:

Did I mention I hate NV for sending this #ssclown back?

  2. I cannot tell a lie. Harry Reid is a monument to ignorance and ineptitude.

  3. Aww what’s wrong with the pretty trees? And the tourism money that will be spent seeing the pretty trees? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Not a darned thing, Spinny. Just show me where, in the Constitution, it says that a proper federal role is forcing me at gunpoint to pay for tourists in VA to see the pretty trees, and I’ll probably less annoyed.

    Now the redwood trees, on the other hand… ๐Ÿ˜†

  6. 28th amendment that never made it into the Constitution: Tours that include visiting pretty trees will be subsidized by tax payers. Refusal = death. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. LOL, Spinny! Your wit reminds me of…well, of me. God help you! ๐Ÿ˜†

    When government confiscates the fruits of one’s labor, the confiscated has one of two choices: (1) refuse to pay; or (2) pay. The former will result in the government using any and all resources to confiscate said fruits, up to the point of employing deadly force if it so chooses or “deems necessary”.

    If I stick a gun in your face and say “Your money or your life” and you hand me your money, could I claim in my defense that you were given two choices and you “voluntarily” handed me your money? Nope…but government can do that very thing.

    If I refuse to pay taxes because I believe that it is unconstitutional to take my money to fund Brokeback Poetry or whatever, the government will make every effort possible to seize that money. Absent their ability to recover my money, they will jail me, seize assets, etc. If I refuse to be jailed because I assert my constitutional rights not to be robbed by them to fund unconstitutional activity, they can use deadly force to try and get me to jail.

    So, it’s not a stretch to make the claim that government can use deadly force to seize my money, if it so chooses.

  8. Oh crush, it’s a long stretch. Even if you refuse to be jailed because you didn’t pay taxes to fund Brokeback Poetry (:lol:), they aren’t going to shoot to kill.

  9. I don’t disagree, Spinny, with your belief that they aren’t likely to do so.

    My point is that government is legally allowed to do so. Government is authorized to use deadly force, if need be, to take your property, but I am not. Whether that is a good or bad thing is a different topic for a different day, I suppose.
