Wouldn’t want anybody to feed those little punishments we call “children” too much, eh Ogabe?

The counter to Obama’s attempt to monopolize the charitable marketplace is to have a Taxpayer Directed Budget where taxpayers could choose to send a portion of their tax dollars to this or that charity and/or government welfare program.

Smart move, Obama. Conservatives contribute to real charities, while liberals are obsessed with contributing towards the arts, animal rights, and any 501(c)(3) that does something related to jeering conservatives. And given the fishy deductions that we found in Daschle’s returns and Geithner’s returns, liberals will deduct contributions to non-501(c)(3) organizations, rationalizing them as being for “a good cause.”

We have a voluntary tax reporting system, but liberals don’t volunteer to be honest.

Now I see why there is such a push to set aside large amounts of government funding for the government approved non-profits such as ACORN and Planned Parenthood in the pork bills. This will put these in an much improved financial position viz-a-viz those holding opposing views.
