So if a movie is played in a local theater, would that constitute a 'visit' to the state by the high paid actor and thus be eligible for this taxation? I would think this is appropriate and 'fair'... spread the tax bill joy around a bit! Maybe hollywood would think twice about their support for liberal politicians who confiscate to remain on the public dole....

There's a difference between doing what you do to get to heaven and what we are to do while in the earth. No one can earn their way to heaven. It is only by grace through faith in Jesus... Out of that faith do come good works we are to do... and Christians do seek to care for their neighbors, freely with no compulsion form Government, but because they desire to. Greed happens on both ends of the money spectrum. Proverbs speak quit a bit about the sluggard and those who have misplaced priorities who do not produce anything and yet want to live in the finest of comforts. Jesus also spoke about where and how to build a house that stands up to the storms that come. Building on falsehoods will breed destruction. Actually, hard work is rewarded by more responsibility and, yes, even more profits. For you or a government to determine how much is enough for a person is not playing a fair game by which everyone abides by the same rules.

Gays for Late Term Abortion?

So was that clear or what? If a child can understand that the "bump" on the belly is a"baby bump" (e.i... a real baby), then you would think geneticist, doctors, very smart people, third-trimester abortion doctors, etc... would get it. Actually, choice is really the un-choice precisely because of the inability to correctly identify what even a child knows as the truth... it is a human with a personality that is in process of being developed... if only we allow the child to be born.

Depravity is as depravity does! Great article..
A wonderful transforming job this obama is doing...
You are very right that men have been less than we should so that women would want to be fully who God intended for them in all things including and especially marriage and parenting. "Husbands love your wives as Christ loved the church... Fathers do not exasperate your children but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." By God's grace in Jesus Christ, this will be done!

I think you have something there about those whose welfare (in our out of Government) is from government coffers. They cease to have no objective reasoning when it comes to true solutions for the needs that are out there... everything comes down to self preservation from someone else's means.

The end never justifies the means when it comes to abortion, redistribution of wealth, government intrusion into seemingly populace solutions. All this has done is escalate the animosity between the different groups of people. Even after all the civil right gains, there are angry people who, after receiving these gains, continue to live discontented (at least the leaders do) lives. Only when people find their content in God (Jesus Christ) and what He has done for them will this selfish, i want what you have, attitude go away. We are not talking about what is an injustice, but what right means will correct the hardness of heart that keeps people (not government) from investing in the next generation. So far, the only group giving of its time, treasure and talent in the true church of Jesus Christ (Christians). This is the only boat that will lift everyone up - for time and eternity! While many scream give to 'Caesar what is Caesar's (in an attempt to get God out of the equation)... why not give to God what is God's (of which He owns everything!)

Sorry, like all progressive prose: Christie's story doesn't measure up to Wendy's ...
