A Lesson In Irony:

The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is actually proud of the fact it is distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever.

Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the US Department of the Interior, asks us to “Please Do Not Feed the Animals.”  Their stated reason for the policy is because the animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.

This ends today’s lesson.

Moralmatters.org author’s comment about the less financially endowed:

I do not begrudge US citizens food stamp subsidies. What I do witness, though is a goverment program ill administered.  [Which gov’t program isn’t?]

Another observation of mine:   People who do not receive the government subsidy of food, sometimes are very quick to judge and condemn while at the same time conveniently ignoring benefits they receive from big government. For instance, I don’t ever recall some well to do  businessmen farmers ever complaining about all the government subsidy [“hand-out”] programs with which they take advantage [of]. Nor, do I hear from wealthy people and others complaining who benefit from the IRS tax code; and, still others benefiting from taxpayers’ monies extorted by our putative president’s socialistic handout programs.

One could cite many examples. Have you ever heard about the Freddie Mae and Fannie Mack scandal? But, that is another whole related (sorry) story of government redistribution of wealth gone wild. Anyway, I think you get the idea of which I attempt to convey. There is plenty of “take,” guilt and hypocrisy to go around.

What Does the Bible Say About the Poor? – thechristianmessage.org/

Excerpt:

The longer I read and study the Hebrew Old Testament and Christian Scriptures, the more I am convinced that government of all forms, which disregard the poor, (by negligently creating an environment for their poverty), will be cursed…….

……..Throughout the Bible’s many compiled books, we are continually presented the Creator’s thoughts regarding the poor. “Poor” to the Creator, does not translate into what some United States’ citizens, would term, as the “lazy welfare recipient.” The poor, as portrayed in Holy Scripture (apart from the “’spiritually’ poor,”) are those, who, for various reasons, are less financially well to do, and, who are often persecuted and taken advantage of, by those people, who often are in political power, and, who, are much more financially endowed. These same people (who are financially well to do) are often leaders in the culture, be it in business or government. It is their political influence which often creates an unhealthy economic environment, in which the poor suffer and become more monetarily strapped……… – thechristianmessage.org/

Home of The United States Supreme Court

Supreme Court Apparently Upholds Obamacare as a Tax

The US Supreme Court has now upheld Obamacare as a tax while striking down the Individual [forced] Mandate. This essentially, gives tax and spend Obama and all politicians the excuse to pummel the American people with continued increasing taxes. Didn’t someone say that “the power to tax is the power to destroy?”

As with passage of laws and also Supreme Court decisions, there are “unintended consequences.” It appears as if the Supreme Court has rendered another decision which is somewhat muddled and compromised. Not surprisingly, there is likely to be future legal challenges and attempted passage of legislation vis-à-vis healthcare.

Bottom line:

But, be that as it may, the Supreme Court apparently has strengthened the resolve of politicians to utilize the malignant “tool of tax” to force Americans, against their wills questionable future legislation [laws]:”

Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas, and Alito Dissent: ‘We Cannot Rewrite the Statute to Be What It Is Not’ – “Judicial tax-writing is particularly troubling” –

…….”[W]e have never—never—treated as a tax an exaction which faces up to the critical difference between a tax and a penalty, and explicitly denominates the exaction a ‘penalty.’ Eighteen times in §5000A itself and elsewhere throughout the Act, Congress called the exaction in §5000A(b) a ‘penalty.'”The dissenting Justices also argue that “judicial tax-writing is particularly troubling,” since the Constitution requires tax bills to originate in the House of Representatives, “the legislative body most accountable to the people, where legislators must weigh the need for the tax against the terrible price they might pay at their next election, which is never more than two years off.”…… – weeklystandard.com/blogs/
