I don't think Harold has any point.

He appears to be an American spending a lot of time in Southern Africa.

Presumably to rob it, since he shows absolutely no concern for any populations.

We do that every day, regardless of whether we like it or not.

Taxes fund schools and hospitals and the police.

The poor benefit from this just as much as the rich do.

The rich skim off as much or more. Whether its Opera or the defence budget or the space race.

The only part they can't touch (and is policed by Zionist commissars anyway)  is the BBC.

The poor do not pay taxes.   Nevertheless the poor R taken care of by those of  us who DO.

Of course they do.

Everybody does, regardless of their circumstances when they buy food or petrol or anything else hit with a sales tax.

I think you'll find that the poor pay proportionately more in taxes than the rest of us.

We know people who went on a Caribbean cruise.  They were obliged to give their credit card number for undefined "incidentals".

Three days later they discovered an UNAUTHORIZED  $100 per head had been deducted from their credit cards for "tips".

But surely tips are discretionary ?  Suppose the recipient/s did not deserve any gratuity tip ?

Cruises often do this, but the passengers are told in advance.

You Tip in advance on cruises not afterwards , as a rule of thumb and depending on the cruise line , if you are known as a good tipper you will get excellent service

By definition, a tip is supposed to be discretionary, not compulsory.

No need to tell me how mean and stingy some can be, despite good service.  Staff get paid to do their work so there should be no expectation of compulsory tips.
