A recent story in The Olympian told us of proposed tax exemptions for, among others, recreational sports leagues and minor league baseball teams. Later in the article, we learn of exemptions for taxes on fertilizer, gold bullion, banks' interest and others. These exemptions will leave billions that must be found elsewhere to balance the budget. Gee whiz. Where do you suppose that money will come from? I know, let's cut funds to help the poor, the children, the disabled and the elderly.
Most of those who advocate such cuts and the legislators who support them profess to be good Christians. I seem to remember something in the Bible that said Jesus told us to care for “the least of our brethren as we would of Him,” and that those who didn’t would go to hell. Those folks probably have a different Bible. Have a nice trip, y’all.
Never miss a local story.
