Ohio Freepers Joe the Plumber Needs Your Help!
Free Republic | Mad_as_he$$

Posted on 10/17/2008 9:27:25 AM PDT by mad_as_he$$

Several on FR have suggested that we help Joe the Plumber with his back taxes. I did some research and it seems he lives close to the Huntington Bank Spring Meadows Branch,

7203 Airport Highway

Holland, oh 43528-7829

Phone: (419) 254-7023

I spoke with a very nice lady there who thought I was joking about opening an account for Joe to help him with his back taxes.

What we need is for someone with a registered charity in Ohio or some registered business to open an account for Joe (real name: Samuel J. Wurzelbacher) After it is open please post the routing and account info so we can transfer money in.

We will then need to let Joe know and arrange access for him. Go Joe the Plumber the FReepers have your back.

wouldn’t setting up a paypal account be more productive?

Joe’s not looking for a handout. Don’t insult him.

We should be able to send money directly to him. Anyone can give anyone a gift for any reason, so long as it doesn’t exceed gift limits (which I believe are around $12,000 per donor). After that, gift taxes kick in, so keep it smaller than the max.

He’s going to need a lawyer.

The left will throw everything they can at him, backed by the money of ACORN and the 0bama campaign, if not Soros himself.

Man if Joe ran an ad for McCain, chronicling Obama campaign's thug tactics, that would be good for 3-5% come election day.

So that’s what happens in the once-great USA! You say something that the establishment doesn’t like, and they look into their “wanted” files to get something on you. Let’s see now if they try to get him for not paying parking tickets. Let’s see if the IRS audits him.
The American media is 100% marxist.

Apparently, he’s lost his job for speaking out:

With all due respect, he may appreciate the support, financial or otherwise.

Absolutely. You lose a huge percentage of potential donors if they have to sit down, write a check, address an envelope, put a stamp on it and mail it.

A paypal account is the only way to go. However paypal asks that you seek advance permission for this sort of thing.

He will bigtime need legel advice. Also I predict this will backfire on those libs factions that you have mentioned.

I am an Ohio Attorney. My law firm has a trust account and I have a PayPal (personal) account).

I would be happy to accept any donations for Joe, transfer them to my firm's trust account and then be sure that he receives them. Just say the word and I will share my PayPal account info.

Couldn’t a trusted Freeper “own” the account and when you are done rasing funds, you could directly pay Joe?

I don’t think keeping it below $12k is a real problem. If someone has an issue keeping gifts below $12k, I am in Ohio and will accept any overflow. ;)

Tell me you’re not comparing a bunch of FReepers voluntarily helping someone out with forced wealth redistribution.

I think people are reacting to the attacks he has been receiving and want to help. I see nothing wrong with that.
If reports are true, he has LOST HIS JOB because he asked Obama a simple question.

I don't think it's an insult to try and help him against the thugs on the left. I sent him a check to day for 50$, and noted if he didn't want the money, to send the check back, or donate the money to military/veterans causes. This isn't just an assault on Joe. It's an assault on the middle class, and tyrannical attempt to “chill” other average Joe's from speaking up. All Joe did was ask a question, and Obama exposed himself as a Marxist in his response.

You could probably do it without Paypal noticing, but if it was noticed the account might be terminated. I use paypal a lot (even though I sort of hate them) so I wouldnt want to take the risk.

I think our Ohio lawyer is a much better solution.

I do. He put himself in this situation. Let him use his own wits to get out of it.

No one is forcing you to help. If other folks want to chip in a few bucks of their own money, I dont see why it bothers you.

Some people buy lottery tickets, some buy cigarettes, some want to help Joe.

he was where he was to see Obama

Some clarification: He was in his OWN front yard. 0bama approached HIM.

Yes, he was where he was when he was for the very purpose that he performed, but it wasn't the will of any earthly entity that he was.

You’re as bad as the worst leftists that I’ve ever talked to.

You have no clue that there is a huge difference between charity (voluntary) and welfare (FORCED).

"Privatized welfare" is also known as "charity", and is a Good Thing when engaged in by caring people who do so voluntarily, out of the goodness of their hearts.

Jesus Christ taught that we should do so.

Charity to the undeserving is Welfare.

Why not wait until our Ohio lawyer sets up an account that can be earmarked to directly pay the taxes.

They can probono an hour to get the correct info.

No, it's not. Welfare is done at the point of a gun. Charity is voluntary.

And just how is he "undeserving" if those who are voluntarily giving determine him to be deserving?
