Republicans don’t like new taxes. They like more of same old ones.
(from the link): Red states hate taxes. Red state governors like Rick Perry (R) in Texas and Bobby Jindal (R) in Louisiana love to tell people in other states how low their taxes are. They love to try and lure people from states with higher tax rates to their so-called bastions of personal freedom, where that no good varmint known as “the government” keeps their damn dirty paws off your money. Or so they like to claim. However, thanks to a right-leaning (yes you read that correctly) tax policy think tank’s findings, we now have definitive proof that people like Perry and Jindal rely on nothing more than smoke and mirrors to push their “low tax” narrative, because math is once again not the ally of the Republican.

Here’s a great Sunday post from Gene Robinson, the Episcopal Bishop. It’s title? Christians, You Are Not Victims.
What bothers me about this whole Fundy Evangelinuts whining of being persecuted is just one thing – look around and see how many mega churches these Evangelinuts have built and operate as businesses – and all tax free.
Hey – if that is persecution – then I want some of that…..
The day I see a burning cross and/or a lynching tree on the front lawn of any of these mega churches – then I might listen to them whine….
Poor persecuted American Evangelicals………read this article and then ask yourself who is exactly being persecuted.
And, I find it interesting that Evangelicals happened to pick Africa to spread their rampage of hate.
Africa has been the focus of a lot of stuff lately – a lot of our military bases and/or military operations are in Africa.
A lot of political fighting going on…….hunger going on…..refugees fleeing their homes….
I’ve read articles where Televangelist Pat Robertson has stock in some diamond mines … hmmm…I wonder if they are in Africa?
Could there be any connection?
How many corporations are in Africa raping and pillaging that country from all its resources and they are finding it useful that American Evangelicals are keeping everyone stirred up over the homosexuals?
This would not be the first time politicians and corporations used the cloak of Christianity to rape and pillage a country – would it?
BTW – I am still waiting to hear a response from The 700 Club and/or Pat Robertson about my prayer request to have prayers said for a certain Christian leader and his blonde-haired female cohost when they displayed such rude behavior while discussing a listener’s prayer request..
I was assured on the prayer request line that EVERY request is honored….
All I want to know is – did anyone even care when my prayer request was seen?
Republicans do not really hate taxes – they just believe they should never have to pay any taxes.
Let’s think about this – every ‘good’ Republican knows how to leech off the government teat – so these folks depend on taxpayers – don’t they?
Romney’s 47% video explained it all – Republicans believe that ‘those people over there’ should be paying taxes – never themselves.
Isn’t choosing bible verses fun?
I am offended to know that Hobby Lobby must believe their employees are incapable of managing their own lives and making their own choices.
Who the Hell wants to give that type of boss the power to control your health care?
As far as picking Bible verses go……let’s review what the Ten Commandments say about abortion, birth control and homosexuality – shall we?
The Ten Commandments are the only verses that are purported to have been written by God’s own hand.
If abortion, birth control and homosexuality are such big sins -then wouldn’t God have put them in his Top Ten List?
