You sound more like a Russian citizen.

If true, this could prove interesting and yet entertaining at the same time.

I have taken the liberty of summarizing your plans to dump tea in the Boston harbor and forwarding them to the King of England.
Have a nice life.

You seem a bit confused. Benedict Arnold was not one of the "good guys".
Nathan Hale and others were.
Or are the Doomzie Tax Flakes "spinning" that sort of cotton candy these days?

I can't call you a traitor, because your too stupid to know better. Now, get down and give me twenty, you fat bastard. PS: thanks for protecting our right to free speech. Now get busy, boy! Don't make me come over there.....

FWIW: Benedict Arnold was one of the "good guys" -- so far as the British were concerned...

No, they wouldn't want Benedict, anymore than the Jews would have wanted to hang out with Judas.

Being a tax protestor hardly makes me a traitor. I do pay my taxes, and I paid a bunch last year, having received a lump sum pension distribution from my father's estate.
I'm not against paying tax. I just don't think the way that the current income tax is structured is fair. I would much rather see some sort of national sales tax.
LOL, so you turned me in, big deal. The IRS doesn't have any problems with me, and I don't think the FBI does either. Good luck, Mr. Citizen. LOL...

cpr -- just an editorial note on your comment that "You seem a bit confused. Benedict Arnold was not one of the "good guys"."
Actually, Arnold was the American hero of the Battle of Saratoga, and one of America's greatest generals; he gave his leg for the cause of the United States of America at Saratoga (there is still a statute at Saratoga commemorating this) -- and in the days before anathetics and antibiotics, this was no small sacrifice. There is significant historical opinion that Arnold's actions at Saratoga were a major turning point in the Revolutionary War.
But, yes, he then did a bad thing. He attempted to sell out West Point to the Brits. Apparently, he felt under appreciated after Saratoga. Many historians believe that his wife pushed him in to it - - what can I say, as the old expression goes, "it's always money or a woman" In Benedict Arnold's case, it was both.
For what ever it is worth, after being found out, Arnold fled and apparently lived out a quiet but reasonable life back in Britian.
Obviously, having one of America's foremost Generals turn traitor had a lot of shock value. Big press and all that. This is perhaps why the name Benedict Arnold still is known today after over 200 years. It would be the equivelent, today, of Collen Powell (or some other, similar, military hero) being caught selling military secrets to the Russians.
No particular reason for this post -- just thought that you'd be interested.

Well, I was interested, E.H. Thanks for the history lesson!
