    And that's a shame. Paying taxes on what you already paid in taxes....what a system.
    If any of my views seem to be strange or new to you, it is to be hoped that you will not close your mind to them, but will emulate the noble Bereans, and not only read and study the chapters would discuss, but will also search the Scriptures to see whether these things be so.

    If that's the best you can muster you should rethink why that is.

    Meanwhile and on the point, I've defended taxation as a legal proposition and as a scripturally supported one.


    I wrote: In any event, when you live here you agree by your presence to be subject to the laws of the land. Taxation is a part of that and anyone who finds it unconscionable is free to find another land and people more to their liking.

    And this sort of declaration in lieu of reason is precisely what I'm speaking about as your problematic skewing, contextually. You appear to feel that how you want a thing to be is enough.

    Nothing in that is a problematic stance morally, because I've already established scripturally that governments have authority that Christ noted and commanded his apostles to obey. Nothing about it is problematic rationally, because the laws of the land are written by that government and among those are the parameters of legal possession of a thing. I even set out an example of the rational necessity in the example of a thief laying claim.

    Of course, you didn't address argument in your rush to substituting personal ire.
    So many words, waxed eloquent and you think you have proven a point! Nonsense.

    Ain't it so! I have to pay more than double for medicare, and then all my SS is taxable, because I am in such a high tax bracket,, even though I do not even have a job. So we live by rob the wealthy in this society. I wish I was born 50 years earlier, yes, that would have been the days. Born a bell of the 1840s, how sweet, oh, no, that is 100 years ago, outdoor toilets, not for me, so I mean 1890s. the gay 90s but no gays. Now were cooking with gas!
    So, what?

    believe it!

    Town, in all his bluster, really thinks in his heart of hearts when Jesus told Peter to go fishing for the coin to pay the tax, that he endorses it. Never mind that Peter was asked if Jesus did NOT pay the tax, Peter's response was Jesus didn't. But since it was brought up, so as to not offend them, He said go fishing and get the coin. But that's a ringing endorsement to Town. Good job Town! I like to know how jumped to that conclusion.

    emotional. Obviously you jump to conclusions in awful lot.

    Born 1894 no taxes until around 1916, thank you Wilson, ya jerk, then no fake society until 1964 when I would have been 70 yeas old and then die when Reagan was in office, die around 1980, or maybe 1985, how nice!

    Never have to know about gay marriage and transgender fools!
    So, what?

    I think you're less easily offended, which is a bit different, but then I'm a lot harder to get to that point than I was when I arrived here, so there's hope on the point. I suspect time does that to us if we're paying attention. There's only so much nonsense to take seriously before you start to recognize it's nonsense.

    No, it's just that when I see you largely ignoring the argument to declare things about me that you can't sustain by actually quoting me I attribute it to emotion, subjective feeling. Otherwise I'm left to either question your rational ability or your character, which I'd rather not do.

    Like that. Horrible mind reading or worse creative writing. Rather, Jesus had them pay the tax. He also said, looking at Caesar's coin, that we were to give Caesar what was his. Couple that with the other scripture I've provided and there's no doubt about what we should do. Using words like endorse can be nothing more or less than a way of looking at anything other than the clarity of our obligation, which you don't like.

    Never mind that Peter was asked if Jesus did NOT pay the tax, Peter's response was Jesus didn't. But since it was brought up, so as to not offend them, He said go fishing and get the coin. But that's a ringing endorsement to Town. Good job Town! I like to know how jumped to that conclusion.
    And that, again, is why I attribute your position to emotion. You begin by using a word I didn't use to describe what Christ told us to do, then you take that word that only came from you and add "ringing" and an exclamation along with a desire to know how I arrived at a point that remains entirely your own creation.

    If you're going to write fiction, write your own ending for it. But don't represent it as part of a biography.

    The tax rate on the poor wealthy [/sarcasm] is lower than it was during the economic boom that followed WWII by a staggering margin and lower than it was during the subsequent economic expansions under Reagan (he lowered it from 70 to 28 toward the end of his 2nd term) and Clinton (who raised it to 39+ during his economic boom). My father and his friends are doubtless overjoyed, but let's not gnash teeth and rend garments over the plight of the wealthiest.

    I agree. I have a sister who is very good at theology, but blows it when other members get to her and she is a real rep addict. She got in Dutch here over the stupid rep system and had a fit about it.

    Now I am not saying you have the same issues, but you do let people get to you. These web forums are not the same as knowing people in a real sense.

    Web forums will always be surreal and sometime more for some than others, so, it is hard to know where you stand with anyone.
    So, what?

    believe it!
