Patriotic?? — MidWeek Blues —
..Not really. But please notice the water tower with the U.S. and Texas flags.
There is one flag on each side.
The trouble is that patriotic people pay their taxes. The owners of this restaurant, the Ransom's Steakhouse and Saloon in Montgomery, Texas, had not been paying the appropriate business taxes. The taxing authorities swooped in and shut the place down and padlocked it tight. Then came the barrels in the driveways.
"...the state of Texas placed a tax lien in the amount of $11,824.37 for unpaid employment taxes dating back to early 2010. A second lien was filed on RSAS Holdings in March in the amount of $15,763.61 for delinquent taxes."

I didn't go in. My physical therapist said they served really good food. Too bad they didn't pay their taxes. Now I won't be able to eat there.
