Baltimore Tea Party? Businesses Refuse to Pay Taxes as Public Safety Crashes


Recommended Posts

:snip:Call it the Baltimore Tea Party.

More than three dozen Fells Point business owners have sent a letter to Baltimore leadership including Mayor Brandon Scott, City Council President Nick Mosby, Councilman Zeke Cohen, State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby and Police Commissioner Michael Harrison.


“What is happening in our front yard — the chaos and lawlessness that escalated this weekend into another night of tragic, unspeakable gun violence — has been going on for far too long,” a portion of the letter says.

The letter demands that city leaders restore “basic and essential municipal services” including trach pickup, enforcement of traffic and parking laws through tickets and towing, stopping illegal open-air alcohol and drug sales and empowerment of police to responsibly do their jobs.

The business owners threaten to withhold tax and permit payments, placing those funds into an escrow account, if the city doesn’t respond to their request.:snip:

Mencken had another quote that the business leaders may appreciate: “Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.”

Let’s stick with a peaceful tax revolt. For now, anyway.

What will happen when We The Great Unwashed say ENOUGH!? The powers that be, learned Nothing from the 2016 election. It was the Great Unwashed saying (within The System) saying Enough!. What happens when The System is seen as no longer working in a fair manner (cancel culture/banning from social media/CRT/Riots not suppressed...etc etc etc.). What happens if letters like this are sent to Congress? What happens if 10-20% of Americans simply refuse to pay taxes, and send a letter to the IRS saying so? Are there enough jails, and what happens if local police refuse to arrest them? So far we the great unwashed have protested peacefully, what happens if/when our concerns are not addressed? Its happened before.

When there are people like Tim Pool,Ben Shaprio, Glenn Beck Dave Rubin, Agreeing on Anything.....

"Culturally, Politically seeing less & less room for live and let live...lose today, there another battle tomorrow. The tribes are sorting themselves out. The Tribes are not Left/Right, Rich/Poor/Republican/Democrat, Minority/Majority, Religious/Non-Religous. Not sure how to describe Our Side from Their Side, but of this I am sure there are US & THEM. I am fairly sure who is an US and who is a THEM. The way I have been looking at politics/culture may not be valid anymore, or are becoming Less Valid.

One mans thoughts, freely give and worth Almost that much."


If our concerns are not addressed and fairly soon, this could get Real Ugly Real Fast.


Thing is We Are Citizens, not Subjects. Something "Our Betters" seem to have forgotten.
