Agreed! I’m on the liberal coast of Oregon and even people here are not happy about this. It’s bad enough we pay tourist prices for fuel & groceries and a new school bond is shoved down our throats every year.

Was he offered a receipt for payment? If not, he has every right to stay why his money was counted.
Old smart asses should be treated no better than young smart asses. Perhaps if he spent half as much energy on positive pursuits, paying his taxes wouldn't be such a burden.
I suppose that's right, but I can tell you as one who has run a business for many years that if someone tried to waste my time like that to make a point, I would be more than a little aggravated too. By the way 6 minutes times 600 is 3,600 minutes or 60 hours. At a cost of $20 an hour for labor, the man just wasted $1,200 of the taxpayer's money making his point. Maybe spending his time researching who to vote for would have been more productive in the long run.
On the other hand, it's kinda funny.
The law says you have to pay your taxes.
Doesn't say your method of payment has to be convenient.
6 minutes to unfold each bill ? I'm trying to understand how you can fold a one dollar bill that takes someone else 6 minutes to unfold?. 10=1hr. x 60 .... I guess he needed to get a motel room and wait on a receipt. I want to know how he was able to fold them like that, that's the $600 dollar question.
While in college, my roommate had his car towed by the city (a large on in Ohio) that conveniently told the 'students' the street needed to be clear on the Friday after Thanksgiving for cleaning or the cars would be towed. They put the notice up on Wednesday. No Wednesday classes - he went to my house for Thanksgiving on Tuesday night. Long story short - we complained. The chief of police (believe it or not) suggested we get creative on paying the impound lot the $168 to get his car back since he believed our story (along with the other 40-50 complaints along these lines). We took $168 in nickels in a large coffee can to the impound lot and waited for over 20 minutes as the P.O.'d state employed counted each nickel so she could give us a receipt. Yes, we could have used pennies, but even we had our time limitations. They were very mad, but they didn't arrest us while we waited.
A strange protest.
I wonder what method he used to pay his bail.
@Wino911, that’s exactly what I was thinking.
Pay your taxes and be a wisea$$ while doing it and you go to jail. I can’t imagine Henry David Thoreau writing Civil Disobedience today. The government would probably shoot him.
I hope he pays the 500 in pennies, not rolled....

I live in rural Oregon but my coastal neighborhood is considered “residential” and in the county limits. There is only a noise ordinance from 0700-2200 preventing me from target practice in my backyard.
Name one other breed that mauled their owner or ate theur baby. Just one. Pit bulls are the only breed that does that on a regular basis. You sre the ignorant one.
My family has always owned American Pit bull terriers going back to my great grand parents. Out of the 20 or so i remember, including the one i own now, they are fantastic companions, athletes, workers, and wonderful with children. We never went anywhere without ours on the farm. They were like one of the gang. None of ours ever acted aggressive to anyone, and since we always had at least 3 dogs of various breeds, they were well socialized and not aggressive to other dogs. The one i have now is my 3 y o grand daughters best friend, which is typical of the breed. The Apbt test as high or higher than any other breed as far as stable, loving temperament. FACT. On your worst day imaginable the pit bull terrier will be your most loving and understanding soul mate. You obviously have never owned one. I am talking about the real American Pit Bull Terrier and not these hybrid over sized headed 100 lb hybrids the thugs are calling pit bulls. And did i mention that the APBT is the constant class clown? Any dog can be taught to be mean. If i was tied to a 40 lb logging chain all day like these thugs do i would be mean too. Reality is, the APBT craves human love and affection. 5 minutes with mine would have you wanting one.

Unfortunately, money talks and a third party does not have the funds. Rubio is homogenized enough that he could win. If it’s a matter of “pick your poison”, ill pick Rubio over Killary.
Wino i agree but it falls on deaf ears – I’ve tried for years. A 3rd party will not get a national convention. They will not get a place in the debates. They will not get the attention or even awareness of the general public. All they will essentially get votes from are some Tea Partiers. NOWHERE near enough votes to even be more than a blip on the election scale – but more than enough to assure more communist democrat leadership. 3rd party voting is the same as voting Democrat.
Happy, with the current Republican leadership, voting Republican is voting Democrat.
Happy do we still have Whigs and DemocRats? The Republican Party was a 3rd party. Time to run on the Constitution and never give up on it.
I love how all the establishment RINOs keep telling us that guys like Cruz can't win. Rubio is a RINO and that's the bottom line. Ted Cruz is the only true conservative there is and the people that won't vote for him should be tried for treason. Period. I'm sick and tired of these pro amnesty, anti Constitution, and anti American RINOs calling the shots. It's time for the true pro lifers, pro gunners, pro low taxes, and pro death penalty people to STAND UP and the rest can SHUT UP!!!
Rubio currently is my 3rd choice. If Ben Carson runs Rubio will be my 4th choice. #1 Cruiz, #2 Rand Paul, #3 Ben Carson, 4th Rubio.
Voting RINO is the same as voting for a Democrat!
“Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.” John Quincy Adams
Cruz people should not be tried for not voting Cruz. That's anti American do you listen to yourself? Personally I prefer rand but I'm as American as they come. Although I love Cruz
Personally, I am a big Cruz and Dr. Carsen fan.
I would love to see Virginia Fox get in the race. Check her out, she is a conservative republican congresswoman from NC.
However, if I were betting, I would bet on Warren will be running against a Bush/Christie ticket. At which time I stay home, or vote 3rd party.
That's the whole idea! If you vote Rubio, he's not exactly a RINO but he will get a goodly portion of the Latino vote. Vote third party and you may as well cast a ballot for the Hildebeast.
Been watching Rubio closely .. My 2yo grandson would run the country better than he would. That being said, my 6mo grandson would run rings around Obama
Money actually doesn't talk....the only thing that matters is the debates and going door to door with who you are. Using social media, the candidate could get the message to more people with less money. When you donate cash, you just pad the pocket of a rich guy
Rand Paul is NOT a true conservative. Period. He endorsed McConnell. He's pro drugs and I will bet you my bottom dollar that if he were elected he would do NOTHING to uphold the sanctity of marriage. If you won't absolutely oppose and or abolish laws that say 2 men should be able to marry each other then you are not a true conservative. Marriage is the bedrock of ALL civilization and conservatism is about conserving and preserving those bedrocks. His endorsement of the Supreme Court's decision on marriage is VERY troubling. I respect your opinion but I think you need to seriously reconsider it. Cruz is a paint by numbers conservative and Thank God for him. I don't believe Paul is nearly as moral a man as Cruz. Morality is a big part of conservatism as well.
Wino the trick is to act now and not have to make that choice, it's lose lose and how we got here.
valk, this is coming from a ky boy and rand supporter, be wary of the current rand Paul.
Name one time that homogenized has won.
Give me a good reason why Scott Walker wouldn't be the best candidate.
We need t energize, educate and electrify the young voters who will be paying for the huge debt the federal government has put on us and them. Unfortunately,the news media, for the most part, is owned by extreme left. Fox is watched by many, but put down by the leftists. The left want a media controlled by the government. We are well on the way toward fascism.
Old car is great until you run out of gas. Gas pumps/gas stations are electric which EMP will have destroyed. Or someone else wants that car more than you want to keep it!

Well said! I carry a Glock 26 in my purse. I have a special compartment just for the weapon and my purse never leaves my person while carrying. This was a tragic mistake…
BTW- my children are all grown, I will probably reconsider how I carry when grandchildren are in the scenario.

I will be more than happy to assist anyone who ask for help… What a shame Michelle Obama thinks it’s below her!
we've won on every-front what have conservatives won
Redneck- so tells what have you won? 18 trillion in debt, a dumbass in the White House, crime is out of control, Americans are broke, the public school system is broken, we kill our babies, so tells us again what you won? You, sir have no common sense.
Oxymoron don't read into record sales, last week, of civilian firearms, ammo, or pieces parts. 39 states allow suppressors, and boy are they selling like hotcakes at a rainy OWS meet and greet. Good job reciting the RevCom talking points.

The local bike club in our area (ABATE) have been doing the toy drive along with Mrs.Santa for decades. They do an excellent job!
