Last night in an interview on CNN, Oprah talked about how she needs Tequila to get through process of paying her taxes. Beck says, to a woman who voted for a social justice president, that she should be having champaign when she pays her taxes instead of tequila. She should be celebrating that her money is being redistributed for her.

    I’m at a loss for words.

    I thought ALL progressives were going to send in all their money voluntarily with their next 1040 filing.

    What happened to all their compassion for the needy etc.?

    tithing isn’t a choice if you are a Christian it is a requirement if you believe the bible is the word of God, but he is right there is no anger, it is the best feeling you can have giving to your Church. If you don’t agree with giving to your Churches that kind of money find a new Church

      Sounds kind of like, “If you don’t agree with giving to the IRS that kind of money find a new place to live.”

    About giving to the Charity of our choice

    I’ve been sitting here thinking about taxation in order to maintain the role of government in a free and thriving, safe and healthy society.

    After ten minutes or so, I found myself coming back to the same old conclusions.
    GIVE ME LESS GOVERNMENT and I will be free to help others where I see the need.

    Glenn mentioned feeding the homeless and that’s pretty much where my mind went, since a few years ago a group of about ten of us, (all from average working class families with limited resources) came up with the brilliant idea of opening a little soup kitchen. There were a lot of homeless in our community, and we knew that we could work with the Salvation Army to
    insure that the hungry and homeless got at least one decent meal on a daily basis.

    However, State food handling regulations for such an operation, made the endeavor an impossiblity.

    Yes, we did understand the concern the County Health Department had for safe food handling. We wanted to help them, not harm them. But I have to admit that it was frustrating to know that attempting any argument that starvation was also an unhealthy condition for any person to suffer, was pointless.

    So, Thank God for the Salvation Army.
    But imagine what more could be done if our hands were untied.

      I think they have so many regulations in place because it is cleaner for the homeless to pillage and eat out of trash cans. If they don’t regulate they can’t tax.

      • justpassnthru

        Actually, the same (unsaid) city has passed a law that requires places like KFC to lock their trash cans every night at closing.

        One must also be expected to understand that law was passed with only the “good health” of those inclined to dig out of trash cans for a half-eaten scrap of sustenance.

        Homeless usually don’t understand the kindness of their government however.
        Oh. And they aren’t able to get food stamps, because they don’t have a physical address.

        Its a real Catch 22

          I worked w/a homeless family and it was a life changer for me, I will never be the same from the hell we went through to get them back on their feet. Mindboggling doesn’t even begin to explain it, that was 7 years ago, I can’t imagine what “the system” is like now.

          Locking up trash cans is a new one for me.

          • justpassnthru

            Pretty sad what’s being done to these people without our knowledge. I guess that’s one reason I’m glad to be sharing this with someone who’s interested in disgussing it.
            I don’t live in that particular city any more, but from what I understand, many of the same people are still living on the street.
            They’re there for different reasons. Somehow, they’ve adapted to mere survival.
            The ones I knew weren’t criminals and they weren’t lazy bums, they fell into hard times, and somehow didn’t quailify for the government assistance that would have kept them off the street.

            With no one to really help them, they got stuck there.
            I could write a book if I compiled just a few of their stories.
            I hate to say it but I will – when Uncle Sam stepped in to help the poor, a lot of churches stepped back and let the government do what its job was.
            Tithes for the people, became tithes of the people, and the money collected went to being used for bettering buildings rather than bettering lives.
            I won’t get into the ugly details.
            I’ll just say,
            Yeah. . . That’s one of the ugly truths that’s fed the monster, we’re now dealing with here in America. If we can manage to get the role of the church restored to its rightful place in society, then we might begin to recover.

    When they said Oprah was retiring I hoped she really was. I used to really admire her, but after the way she handled the run up to the 2008 election she lost my interest. I never watched her show, but the way she manipulated her audience to be interested in Obama – then candidate- wow!

    I absolutely cannot stand that e creature thingy hanging on the wall. It is butt ugly, tasteless, and tacky.

    I bet Glenn’s church loves him! I prefer tequila over champagne, maybe it is what she prefers. All I know is I would love to be able to give $300 million to charity…
    It is funny as hell to hear Miss Oprah cringing over paying taxes, why don’t you come to the other side woman?

    Uh, no. Oprah doesn’t get it. After all the fame, all the wealth and fortune, when the chips were down she proved to be racist and supported her own kind, no matter what. Had they discovered heinous crimes in Obama’s background or freaky preachers or domestic terrorist associations they would just accuse conservatives of hate speech. And so they did.
