  1. Charity to about 50 organizations, and paid $1.8m in taxes, about 1/3 of their income.

    Typical dumb liberal, take one anecdote and say it's a conclusion about all liberals and coservatives.

    Well for your information, and I use that phrase lightly, most studies show that conservatives are more charitable than liberals. Liberals are 'charitable' with other people's money, which isn't charity- it's socialism. It is actually part of the liberal faith that it is the government's job to take care of the poor(socialism) and direct charity is a 'conservative' concept.

    Liberal compassion= gov't handout
    conservative compassion = you do it
  4. Being charitable with other people's money is Socialism, another con without a clue about what he is talking about.
  5. Yup, the bad liberals favoring handouts to the underprivileged in society rather than financing illegal wars and private mercenaries or arms dealers is such a bad thing. And oh, Liberals pay more taxes than the truck driving conservatives, so perhaps they have a higher say in where the government spends its money.

    lol, oh, the irony.
  7. ''The figure excludes Mr Obama's $1.4 million Nobel Peace Prize, which he donated to 10 charities. ''

    Unearned income and the power of guilt.
  8. the only reason conservatives come out ahead in charitable giving numbers is because church giving is called charity. church giving is not charity. 90% goes for salaries and upkeep for fancy buildings.
