Important Tax Reminder!

Have you paid your taxes......??

Don't forget -- 12 million illegal aliens are depending on you!

OK -- just two things about all this:

  • First, this was something that has been circulating around the Internet and someone passed it on to me -- I don't know what person should be credited with the graphic or the reason we should be sure to pay our taxes!

  • Second, the issue of "illegals" in this country has become somewhat of a powder keg -- a real political time bomb with a heavy emphasis on amnesty being granted to all who are in this country illegally.
    At least a few of us are wondering what's going on here -- has it not been for a long time that certain laws have been in place which determine how many from wherever are permitted to enter this country? And once you get in you are expected to adjust to the customs of this republic that include obedience to its laws and the learning of its language which is English, right?

    But then again, it seems that it's still pretty much a rather rigid requirement to enter this country if you are coming from just about anywhere except from that country below the southwestern border of the United States!

And on this tax thing -- something else to remember -- thanks to our elected officials, it now takes the average citizen nearly 6 months to pay ALL taxes (local, state, federal, hidden, and not so hidden) before he or she can begin to pocket a bit of income for personal use within each calendar year! And a PS -- we Pennsylvanians are among those who pay some of the highest gasoline taxes in the whole country and there is talk of adding some more tax on gas -- hang on, we'll make it to the top of the heap yet! With the most top heavy bumbling legislature of the entire 50 states, we can be sure of one thing -- our tax nightmare has really just begun!

"Her princes in her midst are like wolves tearing the prey, to shed blood, to destroy people, and to get dishonest gain. --- Ezekiel 22:27

"God wants us to live in a state of peace with Him, have assurance in facing the everyday challenges of life, and possess a rock solid hope, not only for time, but for eternity!

Only Christians can live on a daily basis with such confidence in a world that is unraveling at the seams!"

Indeed we do need God for everyday living. I believe that God wants to be apart of our everyday lives not just in a crisis.

Exactly -- Scripture reveals the never failing tendency for a prospering culture to drift away from God and relegate Him to a position sort of like the little thing on the wall with glass covering it -- in case of fire, break the glass -- it's an urgent emergency and we need the fire department RIGHT NOW! How about this response from God in Jeremiah 2:26-29 as the people were in an "emergency situation" -- "As the thief is ashamed when he is found out, so is the house of Israel ashamed; they and their kings and their princes, and their priests and their prophets, saying to a tree, 'You are my father,' and to a stone, 'You gave birth to me.' For they have turned their back to Me, and not their face. But in the time of their trouble they will say, 'Arise and save us.' But where are your gods that you have made for yourselves? Let them arise, if they can save you in the time of your trouble; for according to the number of your cities are your gods, O Judah. "Why will you plead with Me? You all have transgressed against Me," says the LORD.
