“State Rep. Abel Herrero (D-Corpus Christi) authored the original bill in 2009. He said that he is disappointed that some toll agencies have decided not to exempt disabled veterans. Herrero is also the author of a new bill that would change the wording of the law from ‘may’ to ‘shall,’ thus requiring toll agencies to give disabled veterans a free ride.”
Once again, the authoritarianism of political government is exposed in the sunlight. It’s not enough to let individual toll road authorities decide whether to offer such a gift. It would now be required, backed by the full faith and violence of the “the law.”
Hey, Mr. Herrereo. Want to pay the tolls for these individuals? Then you and likeminded people are more than willing to pay it yourselves! Form a charitable organization and solicit and collect funds from fellow, yellow ribbon patriots and pay the toll bills for every mangled man-at-arms you deem worthy.
"'We are not asking for a handout,’ said disabled veteran Olga Wuerz of Dallas.”
Not asking for a handout? This example is the very definition of a handout!
When you make war on innocent people and get injured, how is it someone’s else’s responsibility to help you through life?
What next for these murdering assassins? Free groceries? Free rent? Free video games? Free liquor? Free hookers?
Of course, this program will be expanded to include not just physically damaged ex-hired killers but to the mentally damaged, as well. There are thousands and thousands more of these brain addled misfits.
I drive a lot on these toll roads. They’re excellent roads but they aren’t cheap- and I don’t take kindly to the idea of paying even more to subsidize the transportation of murderers.
US loyalists have already put a gun to my head, forcing me to subsidize their crusades of death and destruction around the world. They’ve already put a gun to my head, forcing me to subsidize the education and medical care of their hired killers. Now, they want to rob me to subsidize their travel!
Where does it end? These injured triggermen may no longer carry the regime's guns in their hands and outright murder people, but they continue to initiate still more violence and aggression against still more innocent individuals. Their modus operandi has changed only by switching from weapon enforced violence (war) to politically enforced violence (forced redistribution of wealth).
When will the American people finally become liberated from the forced worship and support of murdering militarists?
