  • that’s the bank of america building… in seattle

  • Huh? The Statue of Liberty is a symbol and reminder of WHY we declared our liberty — excessive taxation and no representation. These days we are right back to where we were. Look at the debt our governments owe, borrowing by selling bonds for needless spending, promising to pay them back with future generations’ excessive taxes. And talk about no representation: most of these taxpayers aren’t even born yet! The “sad-sack” costumes tell us to come in and avoid paying more taxes than required by the government theives.
