CHARITY: John Frugal Kerry
The Florida Times-Union ^ | December 07, 2004

Posted on 11/21/2005 6:37:15 PM PST by george76

John Kerry may be a serial cheapskate.

During the early 1990s, with no apparent presidential aspirations, Kerry contributed the following amounts:

$0 in 1991; ...

$820, 1992; ...

$175, 1993; ...

$2,039, 1994;...

$0, 1995.

Kerry and his wife have a combined net worth between $664 million and $760 million...

The question Kerry still needs to answer, however, is why he isn't as generous with his own vast personal wealth as he is with tax money forcibly extracted from everyone else.

Liberal charitable acts consist of stealing conservatives' tax dollars and spending the money on liberal causes.

In works of charity one's left hand should not know [or care] whose pocket the right hand is picking at the time. Indeed I am amazed that he donated $3K over the years shown.

Duh, because it's his money. He wouldn't raise taxes without leaving himself a loophole, either. Taxes are for us little people.

He'd probably tell you...."we gave millions"....of course, the millions they gave were tax evading set ups to lower the amount of taxes they had to pay.....on HER income.

Donations are one thing ... someone should do a story about all the restaurants and small shops he has stiffed when the tab came because "I'm John Kerry" (insert Thurston Howel III voice).

Howie Carr's radio show in Boston once in a while does a topic like "your run in's in with the Kennedy's and/or Kerry's" and most of the people who call the show tell how they were stiffed on a bill ... usually at a restaurant.

P.S.....and....I'll bet when they're both gone (die)....they pay NO ESTATE taxes, either....the RICH know how to protect against THAT! Washington, the State's, pretend Governess.....re-instated an estate tax this year of about 9%. Does ANYONE really think the Gates family, who lives here....would pay ANY estate tax?

When it comes to any form of measurement or evaluation, I would put Kerry at the same level as Clinton. That says it all.

I don't get it when folks report their charitable donations. We don't. It makes giving seem so calculated. And it makes me think that the person reporting the donation only wants a tax break for giving. Or wants others to know how charitable he/she is.

This is the very definition of a clueless cyclist: riding in traffic with no helmet, talking on a cell phone. Not to mention all that red and yellow matching stuff.

But his hair is perfect.

 
 not  one, single, solitary bill that John Kerry had authored and passed...in twenty years...

Kerry can't be giving his money to charities. He has that $7 million loan to pay back from the last Presidential primary.
Wish they would check into that loan and see who actually is paying the payments. Bet it isn't him.

Liberals are well known to be charity hypocrites...it's no shock that they would chose leaders that reflect the same.

Feel like sticking this on the windshield of the next stupid car I see. . .carrying a Kerry sticker.

This one picture alone; is enough to make one give immediate and eternal thanks for his NEVER becoming President.

This is old news, but you are right - the left are pretty stingy. Al Gore is the same way. And Robert Reich. Do not know about Bill and Hill. Would also like to know about Ted "I-really-should-retire-because-no-one-cares-what-I-say-or-do-anyway" Kennedy.

I keep trying to convince my liberal friends/family members, when they get stuck on "the rich should pay more" thing, that the truly rich never have and never will pay. It is a fact, an unchangeable, indisputable, written in stone fact and anyone who thinks differently is, in the vernacular, stuck on stupid.

U.S. Boasts Highest Corporate Tax Rate in the OECD



We've just released a new study on corporate taxation around the globe.

Bottom line: the U.S. is a global leader in yet another area—high corporate tax rates...

The United States has the highest overall corporate income tax rate (39.3 percent combined federal and sub-federal) among all countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)



Japan (39.0 percent) and Germany (38.9 percent) have the second and third highest corporate income tax rates.

The nation with the lowest corporate income tax rate in the OECD is Ireland (12.5 percent).


http://www.taxfoundation.org/blog/show/1188.html

corporations don't pay taxes...you do.


This is VERY hard for libs to get, or pretend they don't get.

I am 24 years old, and I wonder if I will ever meet a liberal who is as generous with THEIR OWN money as they are with SOMEONE ELSE'S before I die?
