WHY CRIME?
BECAUSE UNFAIR!
UNJUST!
IMMORAL!





PRICELESS ?

© - Tom Hyland – 7/6/12


Ever Notice the Stupidity of Government?

ROAD CREWS …
Tear Up the Road –
Disrupt Traffic for Days, Weeks, Months …
Pave Over – Leave – Then …
Return … and Do It All Over AGAIN!
DUH?


Bumps – Humps – Traffic Hamperers …
Almost Every Damned Street & Road –
In Almost Every Development Now …
Are Aggravating the Hell Out of Drivers –
Bad Enough Where Possibly ‘Sensible’ …
Like ‘School Zones’ … But … Key-Rist!
Every Development? Gim’me a Break!


Speaking of ‘School Zones’ …
What about those Damned CAMERAS?
Speeding Tickets – Not Mailed Timely …
So You Might Remember Occasion …
Several weeks Pass BEFORE You Are Aware!
Chances Are .. You’ll Receive More than One!
Is that FAIR?


OH – Now ‘They’ are Placing –
High-Speed Cameras on Our Beltways!
PLUS – ‘Trapping’ People by State Troopers –
In UNMARKED Pick-Up Trucks, and Even Sports Cars!
Is this Not ENTRAPMENT?


Soon … I Imagine ‘Big Brother’ Will …
Really Go Overboard …
i.e. Place HUMPS Out on the Lanes –
Of All Major Highways, Beltways, Expressways …
SAFETY Has Nothing to Do with Any of This!
MONEY to Go into the COFFERS …
Is What It Is All About!


SCREW THE PUBLIC!
SCREW THE LITTLE GUY!
SCREW EVERYBODY!


OH – Yeah … The ‘Latest’ BULL-SHIT’ …
Millions of Us Die-Hard Smokers …
Are Now Being SCREWED Again!
R.Y.O. for ‘Roll Your Own’ Machines –
Are Now Being Targeted for Extinction!


The Manufacturer of These Machines –
Which You Rent for $10. To Produce a Carton
Of ‘Cigs’ … and Buy Cigar Tobacco & Tubes …
For $16.45 … And SAVE $20. Per Carton –
Is Now GOING BANKRUPT!
WHY?


Because ‘Big Tobacco’ – Especially, Philip Morris …
Wasn’t Making Enough MILLIONS of Dollars –
SO – They Got Their COLLUSION CONGRESS-PERSONS –
To SNEAK an Amendment into the Recent ‘HIGHWAY’ Bill
To ‘CLAIM’ that RYO was a ‘Manufacturer’ –
THUS, Adding MORE TAXES to SHUT THEM DOWN!


Do I Sound PISSED?
You Bet Your Sweet ‘ARSE’ I Am!


I Started Using This ‘Service’ Last November …
And in Seven Months SAVED $560 …
Of my Hard-Earned Money!

PLUS … Our ‘Esteemed’ Governor, O’Malley …
And His ‘Power-Crazed’ – SOB Cronies –
In Annapolis - Just RAISED Maryland Taxes Also!
How Do You Spell … ‘RAT-BASTARDS’?


I WILL DRIVE TO VIRGINIA ONCE A MONTH …
AND MARYLAND WILL NOT GET ANOTHER NICKEL
OF MY MONEY!

ALCOHOL = LEGAL PRODUCT …
TOBACCO = LEGAL PRODUCT …
BILLIONS OF TAXES PAID INTO GUV’MINT TREASURIES!


PRICELESS ?

What Would be Priceless – Is to Give US a Freakin’ Break!
How About Raising Taxes on:
TWINKIES? DONUTS? ALL SUGAR PRODUCTS?

WHY?

Because of The DIABETES EPIDEMICS …
And Associated Medical Costs For:
Insulin – Syringes – Medications – Hospitalizations …
Over-Eating ‘FAT-ASSES’ … ‘MORBID OBESITY’ –
Little Children – Teenagers – Young Adults – Old Adults …


Like ‘Fattened Cows’ … Being ‘Led To Slaughter’ …
The Food Producers Know It!
The FDA Knows It!
The Doctors Know It!
The ‘Fast Food’ Corporations Know It!
The Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Know It!
‘Big Brother Knows It!
YOU KNOW IT!


WHAT A FRIGGIN’ COUNTRY!

GOING TO HELL IN A HAND-BASKET …
BUT …

BLAME EVERYTHING ON US DAMNED SMOKERS!


PRICELESS ?

YES … TRUTH IS … PRICELESS !!!

Quite the rant, Tom... ...and I am sure quite justified. If it is any consolation, it is not much different here. Love and peace to you,
