Can't legally do that. Unless you falsify the shipping/import documents, they will charge you 27.6% since it was manufactured in China. Doesn't matter if it stops in Canada.

Thats what i was afraid of.

Go search for "Sovereign Citizens Getting Owned And Arrested" on Youtube.  Imagine it's BADecker in every video.

Cop:  license and registration please
Driver: I'm not driving, I'm traveling in accordance with some maritime law from 8 centuries ago.
Cop:  (chuckle) (Cool, one of these). In radio- got another one, bring the window punch

I have 3 units on order, due to ship in the next 2 months.  No idea whats gonna happen with tariff.
But I have a friend in Canada I just thought of.  Maybe future orders i can have shipped to him in Canada to avoid tariffs, and then he can forward to me.

You have the right to travel on the public rights of way. You have the right to take your property with you as you travel on the public rights of way. If you take your car property with you as you travel on the public rights of way, you have that right without licensing, because it is a right.

If you don't agree with them that you were driving, but rather, say that you were going from point A to point B with your property, you aren't using any of their legal styled words. You aren't doing what they say you are doing.

If you haven't injured someone, there is no cause for them attacking you to take you to court or make you pay a fine. But... you have to take it to court when they attack you, unrepresented, requiring your accuser to show his injury that you did. This is standard law.

But nobody who does it this way insistently maintains his innocence of injuring anyone. Rather, he is talked into accepting what Judge Judy says in whatever she says it. Or he is represented by an attorney, which makes him a ward of the court without the ability to officially say anything in court unless the judge lets him.

Cool

WRONG

Mr Decker, you can certainly choose to believe what you want to, and I'm not going to argue with you about your misled beliefs. Sir, carry on, do your thing.

But to every other human reading the words he writes....... PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, do not believe his words at face value. YOU WILL END UP IN JAIL IF YOU BELIEVE THE STUFF HE WRITES.  Do your own research please.

well we aint gonna live in a zero tax world..
so what would you consider as things to spend funds on

but i do find it funny how people think offering free food = trapping people into some prison.
yea the school may offer a free sandwich but you can still give your kid pizza if you want

You say you agree, then try to justify it again and again. This program is not "helping the needy".... we already have those programs. This one is literally feeding every US human three meals a day during for 13 years.  When only 20% of the people need help (which they already get).

  And I know I'm not going to get a lower tax bracket. The US loves penalizing those who strive to better themselves. But I would like to see an abatement or wasteful govt spending and useless expenses on our budget. This is one of them.

   Maybe I'm in a unique situation where I see the abuses of the welfare system on a daily basis. You cannot even begin to imagine how many people I see with new cars, $1000 cell phones, rolls of cash in their pockets, and a welfare ebt card in their wallet.

Make it $50.

There's my problem.  Some people are paying 10%.  
I'm paying 32%.

And that's just of my income.
Then throw in maybe another 6k of property tax. Add this tax, that tax, etc.  

Politicians keep wanting to add more and more welfare programs costing millions or billions. Never once do they consider MY welfare, or the tax inequality I suffer.

You may pay $2 towards that program, while I pay $6.  


You are already taxing the ever living crap out of the people that make good money, but then complain that they make good money.



This is another unnecessary program.  In the OP it states "1 in 5 children" are hungry or can't afford meals.  That's 20% of the population.  So now we're gonna introduce a bill to feed ALL children, 3 meals per day.  
    So if 80% of the population is being responsible enough to feed their own kids, you are essentially introducing a bill that is 80% wasteful and unneeded.  For every $100 that goes into that program, $80 is wasted.
    We already have school lunch programs for the poor.

It's quite apparent some who post legal info on here have never spent a day in the courtroom.

If you do all your legal studies on the internet, you'll learn the hard way.

Instead of complaining about the wealthy folks, who pay in most of the taxes, why don't you strive to be one of the wealthy ?

When it comes to my taxes, I hear all the time... it's only $2... 3... $6.   But that adds up quick.  It never ends.  You guys keep taxing the crap out of me, and I receive such a smaller share of the tax benefits. 
249  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Senator Sanders and Rep. Omar introduce Universal School meals bill on: November 02, 2019, 08:50:59 PM
No. Just no. Implement policies that make it so that the children's parents can bloody well feed their children properly.
Dont breed them if you cant feed them.  Feeding a child is the parent's responsibility.

what if.. what if
parents have a child. the parents work and feel their job is secure..... but by the time the kid is born and then later reaches the age of say 4. the parents lose their job or a parent loses their lives affecting the families income.

lets just pretend its just the lose the job scenario.
are governments to then still refuse to feed the kids. and have the kids on a waiting list to be assessed and eventually when assessed as having parents that cant afford to feed the family. have the kids removed from the home and treated as criminal child abusers.. purely for losing their job
or
the $2 a meal that would have paid for the kids food, could then go towards job searching where the parent can concentrate on trying to better the families life knowing the kids are healthy

oh and before bringing up the whole 'tax payer' crap
no where no time no place will you ever see a government void peoples responsibility to pay taxes. there will never be a tax free country.
so its better that tax money went towards peoples health and not corporations CEO wealth.
id rather see a kid got fed and not some scumbag office worker buy a lambo because he is some pen pushing government employee that does nothing but watch porn on his office computer from 9-5

yep you may say you hate a socialist concept of tax. but your wrong. tax is a thing of all concepts including capitalist.. the thing you probably would hate/do hate if you sat and deeply thought about it. is you hate the capitalist use of the tax funds for corporate benefit not social benefit

or are you on of them type of people that love pepsi more than another human

Still, NO.   Your kid is not my problem.  If the school wants to discount that poor kids meal by 50%, sure, let the parent apply for the discounted meal.
    But what happens when you make the families dependent on the schools for feeding the kid?  Now the school has to be open during summer vacation to feed kids? Increased wages and expenses for opening another 25% of the time?
    What happens when everyone becomes dependent on the government taking care of them? Why would anyone bother to better themselves, better their job, better their situation...When you can just sit around and collect handouts?
   You slowly make everyone a govt dependent, less people enter the workforce, less workers to pay taxes, raise the tax rate to counter the lower number of taxpayers. Eventually it becomes more beneficial to suck off the govt teat than to work. Tax revenue drops to a level insufficient to support all the handout programs. It all collapses, and we go back to where we were 300 years ago, fending for yourself with little to no govt services

Dont breed them if you cant feed them.  Feeding a child is the parent's responsibility. I can get behind some discounted meals for low-income families, but strongly disagree with the govt (tax payers) assuming the feeding cost of literally every child in America.

ATF changes rules all the time.  Thats where this story ends up being almost comical. As someone who owns a lot of ATF governed toys, I laugh at their constant changes to definition on a whim.

I have solid core "green-tips".  Remember they were almost banned by the ATF.
I have several AR pistols. Remember all the nonsense from the ATF over braces and "shouldering" them.

I have an AR pistol with a binary trigger. The epitome of exploiting an ATF definitions loophole.

They change definitions all the time. Guess they couldn't change one in time here for this case.
Surprised they didn't try.

What I really want them to do, is enforce existing laws on those who break them, rather than constantly making it harder for those who abide by the law to continue to do so.
252  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Gun criminal goes free...so future gun control issues don't arise on: October 22, 2019, 04:26:03 PM
Here's the reason they stopped the prosection of him:

Federal authorities preferred to let Roh go free rather than have the ruling become final and potentially create case law that could have a crippling effect on the enforcement of gun laws.

Under US District Court Judge James V. Selna's interpretation of the law, convicted felons and other people prohibited from possessing firearms would be allowed to legally acquire all the parts necessary to assemble an AR-15-style rifle and other weapons


So yeah. Let one guy go free who isn't going to cause much more harm because he now knows that he is under constant surveillance -- instead of letting tons of people acquire parts who are convicts.

Or... ATF could change a definition, and correct both issues.

Above is the link to the video. CNN employee tapes conversations of the bosses who no longer give a crap about honest reporting with integrity. They only want to bash Trump and republicans.

This is no surprise to anyone. But offers confirmation about their reporting motives.

CNN is a far right media, not leftist.

I知 guessing we値l be seeing a wave of Tesla Powerwall advertisements in California in the near future.

Very green of them.  With the Lithium pit mines, and recharging those batteries with juice from coal burning power plants.


No coal in California.  Natural gas though which is still bad but not nearly as bad as coal.

Yes, lets all pretend the massive amounts of resources required to mine all those rare Earth materials for the batteries are not expended, not to mention that electric cars are less efficient.

But they can recharge them with a diesel generator in a pinch

I am not saying they don't have advantages, but they are actually LESS environmentally friendly than a classic fossil fuel based vehicle.

I was being a smart-ass.  Using a DIESEL generator to recharge the "oh no, fossil fuels are bad" eco-friendly car

Just know  that project veritas videos are typically plagued with a large amount of cuts and edits to make things look worse then they actually do. Not saying that this is the case in this video, or that it should take away from the effects of what is going on -- because it is pretty wild to think about this.

But remember that everyone has a bias and there is a reason for everyone sharing what they do.

Imagine what Tucker and the rest of the people at fox say about Clinton (and Dems) behind the scenes.

Yes, Veritas likes to play up the "oh my" drama.  I tune that out and just listen to the evidence and not their commentary.

Obviously FOX was swinging right, but not so much anymore. Seems like they tried to balance it out with Donna Brazil's and Sam Sheppard. And there always that black guy (forget his name) who did a decent job of debating the right-swingers with his opposing left view.

But the point of this is not to point fingers...... "CNN does this, but look what FOX does".   Thats a child's fight akin to "I know I was wrong, but look what they did."  I'm not talking about them, I talking about you.

My point in posting this video is because anyone who said CNN was unfairly slanted was immediately lambasted with its leftist defenders rolling their eyes and calling them conspiracy theorists.  

They're wrong. CNN is biased.

@PopoJeff when I opened this thread I believed this would be another fake news, but then I saw the entire 19 minute video and I realised this was real. It痴 hard to believe but Trump was right all along, he kept screaming that media houses were against him and today it has been proved that he was correct. I知 expecting some fiery tweets from Trump, as he won稚 let this news die.

Source: https://www.foxnews.com/media/project-veritass-alleged-cnn-whistleblower-says-network-is-pumping-out-propaganda

If you've been watching the news as long as I have, it was quite obvious.   I know the leftists defend it and accuse anyone who says otherwise of being a conspiracy theorist, but it was blatantly apparent starting a few years back.  
   They weren't too hard on the Bush's or Reagan. Weren't too over-the-top kissing butt on Bill.  
   I noticed the changes during Obama's terms. He could do no wrong and when he did, they downplayed it. He sent 21mil cash to Iran. Hillary sold uranium to Russia, and in return, received a little extra cash in her personal life. So now Iran can buy Uranium from Russia, and use it against the US.
   If any of that same stuff was done by someone with "R-" before their name, it would've been reported by CNN as treason. Yet they white-washed it.

  It is what it is.... and its really no surprise to those of us that can see the blatant bias.

And one of the reasons I stopped paying for cable TV a few years ago.
