“You shall not steal” is a fundamental biblical commandment that’s found in both Testaments (Ex. 20:15; 21:16; Lev. 19:11, 13; Matt. 19:18; Rom. 13:9). If property is theft, as one Christian stated on his Facebook page, then every person in the world is a thief because everyone owns something. If
Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke and Democrat presidential candidate said that churches and other religious institutions that oppose same-sex marriage should lose their tax-exempt status. It’s obvious by his goal that he does not understand how tax exemption works. Those who get the tax deduction are the people who donate
What present laws would have stopped the latest murder sprees? What about future laws? Red flag laws wouldn’t have stopped any of the shooters, but they might bring a cadre of gun-toting government law enforcement agencies down on your house if you are a conservative blogger. All it takes is
The Left is always talking about how wealthy people are immoral. Those on the Left who are rich define rich as someone who is richer than they are. They are exhibiting the sin of envy. Envy is not jealousy or covetousness. Envy is the politics of destruction. If I can’t have
One way to win an argument is to force those who hold the opposing position to live consistently with that position. Politicians are notorious for making laws for you and me but exempting themselves. This happened with Social Security. Until 1983, Congress was exempt from Social Security. While Congress mandated that the
Some years ago, several people in comments to my article “Liberal Compares Obama’s Push for Tax Hikes to Lincoln Wanting to End Slavery,” used the phrase ‘No Taxation without Representation’ in reaction to where our nation is headed. It’s not a good response to our current situation. Right now, there
Nancy Pelosi is unhinged. The things she is saying, however, make up the Socialist side of the Democrat Party. Her claims, like those of Elizabeth Warren, Chuck Schumer, and Bernie Sanders, are so outrageously false and tyrannical that it’s incomprehensible that people agree with her history and “logic.” But millions
While Millennials claim socialism is the best form of government, when it’s applied to them personally, it shows it’s a bad system.
Once you give the government an inch on the income tax and spending, they take 100 million miles. Republicans are fools if they think a tax increase on millionaires is going to fix anything. In fact, a millionaire’s tax will only embolden the Democrats and grow the government, something the
Writing a daily column for this website is a perilous enterprise. While most of the emails I get in response are complimentary, there are always a few spoilers. One letter writer was stridently opposed to my article on “Let’s Stop Taxing the Rich More in the Name of ‘Fairness.’”I just
“I remember I was very sad for many days when I discovered that in the world there were poor people and rich people; and the strange thing is that the existence of the poor didn’t cause me as much pain as the knowledge that at the same time there were
If given the chance to vote on the issue, most people in New York, who are not multi-millionaires, would vote to confiscate money from people who make more than they do.
During his Harvard Commencement Speech, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg advocated for Universal Basic Income (UBI) for Americans: “Every generation expands its definition of equality. Now it’s time for our generation to define a new social contract,” Zuckerberg said during his speech. “We should have a society that measures progress
Some mad-cap leftists are protesting to force Pres. Trump (that sounds so much better than what could have been – Pres. Hillary Clinton) to release his tax forms. The no longer funny Sarah Silverman got into the act over the weekend at an anti-Trump rally: “Show us your f*cking taxes,
The Oklahoma Supreme Court has ruled that a Ten Commandments’ monument must be removed from the State Capitol grounds in Oklahoma. Why are the courts so opposed to the Ten Commandments? Secular governments don’t want any competition. Governments want to be free to establish their own laws without a law
Hillary Clinton knows that die hard liberals will vote for her no matter what she says or does. In fact, the more bizarre and outlandish her claims and policy positions are, the more firm liberals will be in supporting her. She knows that the Electoral map is on her side.
Lawmakers believe they can create economic opportunity and prosperity by law. If they really believe this, then why not pass a law that says that everybody should get paid $40.00 per hour? If $15.00 is good, the $30.00 should be better. Many companies live on thin profit margins. They are
John Kasich appealed to Matthew 25:42-43 in support of Obamacare. “Promoting Obamacare in South Dakota, Montana and several national interviews last week, Kasich touted the Bible chapter’s depiction of judgment based on individual charity as a sweeping endorsement of government programs for the poor.” “Individual charity” is not government confiscation in the form
