IF I had all that you acuse me of maybe, but for now it denies me access that I pay taxes for. FU
Presumptions and judgements are cheap. Sometimes they're used to support a personal need/desire.
You should only assume when you have a strong supply of lubcricant.

I think they charge too much for cars, guess I should just steal one, afterall tax monies went to keep them building them so I guess I'm entitled.

As soon as they sell you the same car twice you might go with that.

Nobody's making me buy one car let alone two. The simple point is no one is forcing you to stay at a park so if you don't like the price don't stay there. The debate over the price, or taxes, is not even the issue based on the original post. I'm ashamed that this debate even developed, how far our ethics and morals have slid that one can justify knowing the right thing to do and then do the opposite. I don't stay at parks because of the cost and I can stay free on USFS and BLM lands. I don't agree with how much it costs to stay at a park but I know that if I stay there I should pay. I'm not a paragon of ethical behavior but this one is a no brainer.....

Ok.
When have you cheated, and what were the circumstances?
Was it just kinda bad, or was it really bad?
Were you alone?

I do drive over the speed limit at times . Usually I'm alone, and you can judge if its bad or really bad. I know its wrong and I expect a ticket if I get caught, no whining.

thanks for your interest........

Hell yes. But I think people that are actually using that service should pay more then those that don't. The point I was trying to make is that we are getting screwed everytime we have to pay to lay our head on a piece of dirt in a NP. If you don't have to pay for schools why NP?

And as for an Uneducated work force...we are already there. I own a business and you should see the kids right out of H.S. that have no idea how to do ANYTHING! These kids can't even do simple math in their head.
If you give them anything mechanical they look at you like your from another planet. So yes I'm a little bitter about paying for schools when I don't have kids and that other peoples kids might be coming out of school with absolutely no skills what-so-ever!!

so....Bruin; don't take it personally, it is just my view and really has no effect on you so I don't know why you are getting hateful about it. Cheer up man!
You have a business that relies on an educated workforce but you don't think you should have to pay school tax? Think about it a minute.....

Remember to be old and wise you must first be young and stupid. They will come around.

Camping w/o paying is exactly the same.

I know people who have taken new, unopened packs of Fire-Hot taco sauce from certain restaurants. Plus napkins and plastic sporks. And it gets worse, too....
