not paying taxes, owning illegal guns, doing illegal drugs, violating a seatbelt law, i find it hard to feel bad for a family that seems just plain retarded

aaaaaaand hello red thumbs

Though you all can fight about gun/pot laws, the fact that the sister didn't wear a seatbelt is her own damn fault. Also, not paying taxes is generally a very bad idea.

Pay taxes, dont smoke week, wear your seatbelt, own a permit for a fire arm. These are in no way freedoms that we are defending by deploying to Afgahnistan or Iraq. This is an idiotic comic relating Soldiers or Marines or who ever it is depicted in it to whiney people who complain every time the LAW is enforced that their "rights" are being taken away.

So if you're in the army, your family shouldn't be arrested for doing illegal things?

Okay but you need to follow rules!   
   
If smoking pot is illegal, DON'T DO IT! It's bad for you anyway.    
If guns are illegal (esp. conceal carry) DON'T CARRY THEM! Some people would say that guns are dangerous. I kind of agree.   
If wearing a seatbelt is the law, WEAR A 						*******					 SEATBELT! They make cars a lot safer anyway.   
If you have to pay taxes, PAY TAXES! Yes, times get hard, money gets tight, but seriously.   
   
This family seems 						******					 up.    
No joke.

If you drive without a seat-belt, you ******* deserve to go to court. It's there for a reason. Please tell me you people aren't this dumb.

No one goes to prison for smoking a joint.
That doesn't happen.
Police don't ******* break down your door when you smoke weed to drag you off to jail.
You need to have quite a bit on you for charges to happen, like intent to sell and all.
Honestly, if you smoke in your own house, and leave your pot at home, nothing bad will happen. You have to be ******* retarded to get arrested for smoking one joint.

Back taxes:
Listen. Being a Citizen in America, you generally agree to paying taxes.
I'm not saying tax laws are fair, or make sense.
But Back Taxes shouldn't be that ******* hard to pay off when you have a two people with jobs, and a son in the army.

On a personal note,
I'm an immigrant to America. I'm from Yugoslavia, I came here when I was 13 (During the war)
I'm 19 Now.
I love America, I appreciate being here every single day. Sure. It could be 1000x better. But it's not, yet this is a country, where almost anyone can do something about it, but the will, that's up to you.

Americans shouldn't be so hateful of their own country, to me it seems ******* dumb, and spoiled.

The Average American does not understand what it means to be free, because they've never been oppressed, and I understand this, I understand why Americans are so ungrateful to the point where they hate their government. But that's another great thing about america, you can leave and renounce your citizenship any time you want.

I for one, Love America.

Sorry for somewhat ranting everyone, have a lovely day!

1. Taxes, you have to pay them, end of. If you cannot afford them you get help, if you can but there is no money you should rethink your outgoings. Pay them before you buy anything else.

2. Family business, not much to say really. Clear it out and find another place? If you sacrifice taxes for a family business then there are issues, because businesses run by one person can turn out to be extremely expensive. May be heart-rending seeing it go, but if you can't afford it you shouldn't keep it.

3. If you're not allowed to carry a gun, then don't ******* do it. I know you'd feel much safer if you did have or or I don't know, maybe you wouldn't because you'd be expecting something to happen. Carry pepper spray or a taser or something.

4. Where I live you get a warning for carrying/smoking pot. If you're stupid enough to do it again and again because you think it should be legal it means you aren't exempt from the law. Law is law and if you break it you go to prison.

5. If you don't wear a seatbelt you're an absolute top class idiot, just waiting for a Darwin award at any moment. I feel weird without having a seatbelt on, and if you don't have one the flipping force you go through the windscreen in a collision is phenomenal. Anyone who doesn't wear one should rightfully have their ass nailed.

6. Seems like a retarded family, especially guilt tripping their kid and telling him all of this while he's fighting a war.

Stupid comic.

1: Yeah, right enough. Have to pay taxes, even if the money is being wasted at an astounding rate.

2: The city condemning properties to build new developments is ******** , and disrupts everything. Do you have any idea what it takes to move a family business?

3: The right of a citizen to bear arms is a constitutional right. End of story. Also, I've used both pepper spray and a taser, as a security guard, and they don't stop everyone. Bullets are much more effective.

4: Pot should be legal. Breaking the law and getting caught should land you in prison, though.

5: What business is it of yours if someone wears their seatbelt or not? If I get into a wreck, and die because I'm not wearing a seatbelt, then that's my issue, not yours. Butt out.

6: It's a political comic, dumbass.

>Taxes - It's basically a country membership fee. Every country has one.
>Gun - what if she was going to rob a bank?
>Pot - I think it should be legal, but if it's illegal now and you know it, you're retarded for smoking it
> Seat-belt - you're supposed to wear it if you value your ******* life retard

did the author think that everyone in the armed forces just signed away a few years of their life to work without pay or something?

I don't care what anyone thinks, as long as weed is still illegal it's 						*******					 ILLEGAL. I don't necessarily agree with it being illegal due to it being no worse than alcohol but until it is legal, it's your own fault if you get in trouble for it.

Why the **** is it so hard to reach over and put a seatbelt on? It literally takes 5 seconds

Logically, weed IS bad for you. It is a foreign substance entering your body after all, so there has to be SOME effects. Not saying it is as bad or worse then booze or tobacco, just that there is SOMETHING there.

"We are so proud of you for going over there to fight for our freedom"

on a light, yet serious note.

things are getting more and more ****** up as we live....

surely this wasn't what i had in mind when i was 5 years old and I truly believed like every boy and girl, that i could be anything......life is a bitch.....

So i got a problem with this. Im in the Army, and the thing that bugs me with this comic is why are the parents being so dependent on their son, I don't think anyone would tell their kid hey we lost our house and stuff, I know you cant help but were going to bring it up any way. There is just way to many flaws in this comic that it annoys me.
User avatar #175 to #172 - winsauceiswin (02/07/2013) [-]
the over all point of the comic is that:
one: men and women not at home are fighting a pointless war
two: those who are at home are loosing their liberties

it's not a solid focus on the soldier, the letter reading is simply a means of conveyance of the message and the soldier himself is a symbol for all soldiers fighting for or who have fought for our liberties which, aforementioned, are being taken away.

don't be too offended as it wasn't actually an attack on the soldier or soldiers themselves :)

This sounds to me like idiots bitching because they don't get everything they want in life. Yay America!

except its ludicrous for people to still be losing their rights over smoking pot.

This is the dumbest **** i've seen on funnyjunk for a while...
1. They didn't pay their ******* taxes, what do they expect? To live in their home for free just because their son is in the army? No. They still need to pay their damn taxes just like everyone else. Same thing with the business. It obviously has not been doing well, how is that the city's fault? They couldn't afford to keep it open any longer, they weren't making enough profit.
2. If it's illegal to carry a gun in that city then she should have been obeying the law. It's her fault for breaking the law, she deserves to be arrested. The brother and sister both broke the law as well. I don't see why this comic is complaining about that.

> Well **** , if you can't pay taxes you should probably move before the government seizes your house

>If the government takes your land through eminent domain they have to actually pay for it; they just can't take land because they feel like it.

>It's blatantly against the law to carry a gun without a permit; that straight up retarded. If she has a carrier's permit and didn't have it with her, that's also straight up retarded

>Smoking weed in most states is a misdemeanor; at most you would get a fine and probably a month or two of probation. No one goes to prison for smoking 1 joint.

>Once again, if you're driving in your car without a seat belt, you're straight up retarded and deserve to have to pay a ticket
