“The income tax has made more liars of the American people than golf has,” that was Will Rogers’ thinking.
“Give unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s,” Jesus said. He didn’t give any exceptions as to only giving if it’s used this way or that. Taxes are to be paid, period — unfortunately.
I’ve written many letters that were 86’d instead of being published. One was very hilarious about (President) Obama and dreaming. Don’t have to ask if the editor still has it and ask him to publish it.
I also wrote about a letter, unlike mine, that letter never makes it, was published twice! It wrote about health care or else. Seems our forefathers; blew it, they should have written “Life, Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness and Health Care.” So close.
Another letter I wrote never saw the light of day was about a prior written in the clergy view in March 16 “mercy, not sacrifice.” I wanted to address the writer. Be careful how you wield God’s double-edged sword. His word in Hebrews 4:12 says: “...it penetrates even dividing of the soul and spirit...it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” Also writes, don’t do the devil any favors discrediting God’s people, the devil loves to see God’s house divided.
So do you think the other shoe has dropped and we can go on now, and have spring? It’s sure been a crazy year. Weather changes but God doesn’t.
