Nod, that’s why I picked that example. I got in an argument once, with a guy crying about giving free stuff to lazy poor people. Well, bud, if you want that guy off of welfare, working and paying taxes, he HAS to have a phone, idjit.
and @jborg It was the same way with my grandfather, but this was back in the 60’s, no one knew what it was or had a way to treat it. He just took a nap on the couch and never woke up.
Sorry about your father, MDMom, bless you.
Your sister asked about face makeup? I’m sorry, not trying to be silly or anything, but is there any other kind of makeup? Is fingernail polish considered makeup?
Some dark possibilities indeed.
Beats waking up choking and gasping for breath in the middle of the night as well!
The same goes with churches.
People join churches, donate tons of non-taxable money to the churches, gaining a personal tax break.
Then they get to tell the people who run the church how that money is spent. “Spend my million dollars on THESE people, not THOSE people.”
There are no city parks in our little rural community. But the local church owns about 20 acres with a beautiful walking trail and playground, which they are good enough to share, bless them.
And as you walk along the trail you can enjoy the sort of inspirational and devotional messages which would not be found in a city park.
The problem with taxes isn’t really that the wealthy don’t want to pay them. They just want to dictate HOW it is spent. Don’t spend it on cellphones for deadbeat welfare Moms. Spend it on buying Bibles for those Moms.
Nah. I’m too lazy to write a book no one will read.
This is the inevitable outcome of the governments cowardice to properly tax corporations.
Why is that bad, you may ask?
Because with corporate funding we have to allow them to have a say in how the $$$ is used and allocated. It gives them a louder voice OVER the publics interest. They are buying control of a public program.
For years I have wanted to rewrite that story and call it “The Man Who Sold Mars”.
However, I am no author. Alas.
Just another empty, hateful, racist threat.
