Yes 281 Calls On Higher Power to Help Raise Your Taxes

That was my first reaction when finding out the venue for their rally September 20 reported by the Sun-Post:

A community group supporting more funding for Robbinsdale Area Schools District 281 through an increase in property taxes will host a rally at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 20, at Holy Nativity Lutheran Church, 3900 Winnetka Ave. N., New Hope.

Checking my Bible, I recall that Jesus sat and ate with Levi (a tax collector). He came to seek and save the lost, and even chose a tax collector (Matthew) as a disciple (note that Matthew gave up his tax collecting gig to pursue a much higher calling). I’d love to know why Yes 281 chose that venue for a rally to raise our taxes.

The next thing you might find is an offering plate going around at the next School Board meeting.

    what do you think Jesus would want? usu our fund to bail out companies involved in fraud and greed or provide funds to help our children and their education?

    He became a teacher, as I recall.

    What a bunch of idiots. They could’ve used the opportunity to all pitch in some cash to pay for their noble cause. If they so desperately believe more money is needed “for the children” they should’ve put their money where their mouths were.

    No, these are a bunch of union hacks that want us to pay for more goodies for themselves, and like cowards, hide behind the children.

    Oh and “pawlenty” – it’s not an either/or situation. It’s a big, fat, NEITHER. Get out of my pocket you commie – if you want extra’s for your kids, pony up the cost yourself.
