Charity?....A liberal’s compassion is limited only by the size of someone else’s wallet.

In proportion to my own salary, I gave far less. Oh well.

"Biden's After Income-Tax 2009 Income is $249K,"

And we know for sure they won't be raising taxes on those making less than $250,000.

BTW - Biden making $250K isn’t like you and me making $250K. It would be like us making $250K AND getting free room and board AND getting free travel AND having personal servants AND people lining up to give you gifts and pay your way wherever you go.

IOW like having $250K a year of walking around money after all your other expenses are already taken care of.

Just to put it in some kind of perspective.

How much do you think Ol’ Joe spends on, say, gasoline a year?

No surprise here. Christians whose politics track left think that lobbying Caesar to succor the poor discharges their obligation “the least of these”.

The Obama’s made $5.5 million in 2009!!! “from the sale of his books”.

That’s a joke - wonder if they claimed Bill Ayers as a dependent or disclosed his very profligate gift of words - for a book that would not have otherwise been written!!!

Liberals are very generous with other people’s money. And they get REALLY angry when you point it out.

That should be made into a bumper sticker.

Worse, in previous years when our pre-President was simply a lawyer and professor making a mere mid-6 figure salary (before the Senate) and his wife had some sort of prestige job, IIRC their charitable contributions barely exceeded a couple of thousand! I think that this Executive Leadership Team (POTUS/VPOTUS) are the least charitable in living memory in times prior to political spotlights!

To Lib the world is simple. It's like driving a car. Anyone slower than them is a looser and anyone faster an idiot, only what they want is right.

Take most Libs that would be affected (i.e. the ones with family and jobs) and ask these questions:

You're against capital punishment but if someone raped and murdered your wife, what would you want to do with them?

You're for the legalization of certain drugs, but do you want your son using them?

You're for the legalization of prostitution, but do you want your daughter to be one?

You accept the idea of higher taxes to pay for what you see as essential social services, but should you personally pay more?

You accept additional fees for risky behaviors or unhealthy living such smoking and health care, but should we charge more for those that smoke pot, engage in homosexuality, etc etc etc?

The Lib is simple, he truly is. Liberalism in America has nothing to do with what the original term “liberal” once meant. In it's historical and actual meaning it's a positive term and many that call themselves conservative actually are liberal in so far that they want to maximize freedoms and embrace change. However, in contemporary America it's simply a class of people that are hedonistic, selfish, irresponsible, unpatriotic, and secular.

BTW- the typical Lib will do the avoid the question shuffle and use some fallacy to answer or deflect on the aforementioned questions.

The Bidens gave $4,820 to charity, in cash and in-kind donations.

If it were just cash, that number might be okay. But "in-kind donations" reeks of another Clinton underwear deal.

ML/NJ

And, the Obama’s got 5.5 mil in ‘09 and gave “about 1% to charity in ‘08-’09”...not difficult to see whose wealth these “wealth spreaders” are wanting to “redistribute”... everyone else’s and not their own.

To quote the man...

“It’s time to pay your fair share....time to be patriotic.”

We’re 10% givers and I resent him else telling me I’m greedy and don’t want to help others. I have zero respect for him.

Same as last year. If this were Bush or Cheney or Palin giving this paltry amount, they’d be run out of town. Lead MSM story for weeks.
