Why should we not be surprised…they force us to be homeless, then they deprive us of being able to get a job, they want to keep us out of parks and beaches, they don’t let us be involved in our children’s school activities, now they seek to deprive us of food. I say all RSO’s should now be exempt from ever having to pay any taxes of any kind.

I advise anyone and everyone registered, including family members of those who are, to go apply. If you get accepted… good. Now if they take them away from you, you are financially well off after the massive federal class action suit that is poised to happen against our government.

This exact situation was made into law before, and the outcome for our government was not good. Guess they forgot what happened last time.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
