Merry Christmas

It's almost the end of the year which means time is running out to use your political tax credit.

The Political Tax Credit allows a married couple to contribute up to $100 -- a single person can contribute up to $50 -- to a qualified political cause and receive the full amount of their contribution back as a credit on their Oregon tax return.

Please note, this is not a tax deduction like your home mortgage interest deduction or contributions to a charity. This is a dollar-for-dollar credit. In other words if your total state taxes for 2004 were $500 and you made a political contribution to a qualified political committee of $100, you would only pay $400 in taxes.

Give $100 to your favorite conservative group or give it to Ted Kulongoski to hire a diversity manager. Your choice.

Some suggestions for how Daniel uses his tax credit:

Oregon Firearms Federation (make sure you select Political Action Committee)
Oregonians for Immigration Reform

NOTE: Make your donation now and during Christmas dinner you can tell your liberal relatives how you are keeping $100 away from the public schools and the poor!

I read the Oregonian today, saw the wonderful story about the woman who rallied with her friends to get a homeless woman off the street. Later, I did my morning web surfing, and saw that Miglavs is incapable of offering a simple "Merry Christmas" without using it to crowbar a segue into tax credits, and then using that as a segue to advice on annoying "liberal" relatives.

And if any of you reading this interpret my comment to mean that I think Miglavs should help get a homeless person off the street at Christmas, then in true Miglavian fashion, you're missing the point.

Merry Christmas to all.

And if you want a good place for your political tax credit, try Americans for Prosperity, the group fighting the Oregon tax increases. The money will help with the campaign to vote those down.

Now that's showing the true spirit of Christmas, because, as we all know, Jesus said that a poor man was more likely to pass through the eye of the needle than to enter the kingdom of heaven!

Keeping money away from the poor ... and not only that, but bragging about how you're keeping money away from the poor.

Tell us, Daniel: How does this attitude square with the teachings of Jesus Christ, and the spirit of Christianity in general? I would think you could speak to that topic, since you identify Jesus as among your "interests."

Merry Christmas Daniel and thanks for your tax advice. I have been doing that for years and I wish everyone would.

To the commenters. First, it was a camel through they eye of a needle, not a man. Look it up. Second, the lord helps those that help themselves. May God be with you!

Merry Christmas to Daniel and Family.

I'm getting my $100 tax creidt via a donation to OFIR as well.

The only PAC in Oregon truly addressing the root cause of so many of our problems wether it be Children being Raped and Tortured by illegals or our kids not getting a great education as hundreds of millions are wasted on failed programs for those that should not be here.
And to the Parents, being forced to pay much more than needed for Illegal Aliens Health Care (thanks to the Dem's literally making this a new law) and thier incarceration for Crimes that should not have happened and would not IF our government really protected us.

Hmmm, $100 to the Democrats to keep flooding our nation with needy 3rd worlders, knowing it will make us a Socialist country, all dependent on big Brother or... to OFIR PAC?
A no Brainer

Merry Christmas to all.

To all you clowns whining about how Daniel wants you to donate to OFIR, you are a bunch of whiny babies. You people are so short sighted. If we give to OFIR and they get the results they want, such as:
1. booting the illegal children from our school will give American children an additional $150 million dollars in the schools by just eliminating the failed ESL program. How's that for additional funding for our children?
2. Put Americans back to work. We have hundreds of thousand unemployed and underemployed in this state. What a wonderful gift for American families, we can put them back to work so they can all have a home to live in.

Those are but two examples of how a hundred dollar donation can help. Of course you stingy and anti-Americans don't care about American children or their families. You feel good by helping criminals destroy American children and their families. You people want to berate Daniel for not helping one person, he wants to help thousands. You people have little minds, he does not.

Yeah, I wonder how the Bruce Benkle situation factors into this. Lemme' get this straight. So a person gives money to OFIR and the problem with children being raped is "truely addressed"? Interesting...

Even "needy 3rd worlders" are confused by your statement.

DAVE01 said...

Anon 9:51 am voting against democrats in Oregon, (can you say Neil Goldschmidt), will protect our children.

Yes, giving money to OFIR will PREVENT the rapes and murders and drunk driving deaths of many American children. One prime example of this is a young girl named Dani Countryman. A more recent example of this is where a two year old was run over by an illegal alien several weeks ago that would still be alive if OFIR had their way.
Here is the link in case you forgot.

Does this clarify the situation for the needy third worlder thieves?

Why do you want dead American children? The rapes and deaths by criminal aliens are preventable. Get that through you fat head. Why do you clowns like you keep bringing up Benkle the pedophile? Are you trying to divert attention from your crimes of raping little kids? Are you part of NAMBLA? Do you advocate the lowering of consent age laws?

Anonymous said...

Um, yeah Dave, giving a hundred bucks to a right-wing nativist outfit that's pushing for extreme reactionary "solutions" that have political support only amongst a tiny minority of the population will solve all our problems. And, as the original 6:12 Anon, I'm not whining about anything. Daniel can give all the money he wants to whomever he wants; I really don't care. My point was ... well. Obviously, you MISSED the point. Totally. Why bother explaining it? I won't. You're not worth it.

Why do you want dead American children?

Do you still beat your wife, Dave? COME ON, MIGLAVIANS! You can do better than that, can't you? Or can you? Nobody here, I repeat, NOBODY wants dead children, or harmed children, and I'm sure that any one of us would risk our lives to protect a child we thought was in danger of being harmed in any way, so stop asking stupid fucking questions like that, Dave. It's a bullshit question that speaks only to your own inability to engage in a serious discussion that doesn't presume the worst of your political opponents in a ludicrously dishonest way. Grow up for God's sake. And by the way: Whomever brought of Benkel, that's ALSO a bullshit argument, leading to an endless, and totally useless back-and-forth of, 'Well whatabout Neil?' 'Well whatabout so-and-so?' that, when all's said and done, proves ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. That's political discussion at the level of an elementary school playground. 'But teacher, so-and-so did it too!' Shit. No wonder this country's going down the toilet. People can't even have a thoughtful discussion anymore unless they already agree with each other about everything.

Anon 1:43,

Did you even have a point to begin with?

Your little rant about OFIR pretty much sums up your attitude about them and anybody who gives money to them. Therefore, you DO care to whom Daniel and others give their money to. And you DO think it's "worth it" to respond to those with whom you disagree. Unfortunately, you try to cover your burning desire to vent your disagreement in a veneer of arrogance and condescension, even though it does absolutely nothing to advance your argument. Otherwise, you wouldn't have wasted your precious time posting your "extreme reactionary" diatribe which has "political support only amongst a tiny minority of the population" in the first place.

Anon 2:59, trust me: If the contest is between Daniel and I, I am FAR more in synch with the political sentiments of average Oregonians than Daniel is. Or do we need to review the curious case of Tom Tancredo, or Daniel's professed support for Bill Sizemore, a felon who has been largely shunned by his own party?

Also: Do you even know, given the context here, what "reactionary" actually means? Pull out your dictionary, pal. You've got some catching up to do.

And yes, for Chrissakes, I DID have a point, so I will once again try to make it for the dim-witted and intellectually-impaired folks such as yourself:

My point to Daniel was: It's Christmas, buddy, how about giving politics a rest for a day?

Is THAT simple enough for you? How about you, Dave? Did that sink through the two inches of skull it takes to reach your walnut-sized brain? Have I dumbed it down sufficiently to your level? Do you get it now?

Good grief, you guys are serious morons. LOL!!!

What about Ofir's Bruce?

Anon 4:22, regarding your political synchronization pattern: I'd be inclined to agree with you. After all, it is the "average Oregonian" that voted in the likes of:
- Neil Goldschmidt (Child Rapist)
- John Kitzhaber ("Take two more tax-hikes and call me in the morning")
- Barbara Roberts (Helped make kooky left-wing causes into fashionable "mainstream" causes, namely socialized medicine and "gay rights")
- Ted Kulongoski ("Only green jobs allowed in this state!" Must be working; Oregon's unemployment rate is STILL higher than the national average)
- Sam Adams (Child Rapist, Liar, Town Drunk)
- Barack Obama (Everything he says comes with an expiration date)

To be fair, they also voted in:
- Bob Packwood (Ethical misconduct. Interesting that the Senate voted to expell him for something that is now commonplace in that august body.)
- Gordon Smith (Benedict Arnold)

Pretty much fits the bill, doesn't it?

Do you even know, given the context here, what "reactionary" actually means?

Ah, yes. Context. Isn't it convenient to have epithets which carry special political connotations tailor-made for you lefties to use instead of actual arguments which require forethought? Say, while we're on the subject, you ARE familiar with the word from which "reactionary" is derived, aren't you? Do you need more context, or do you get my drift?

And finally, after all the hot air:

My point to Daniel was: It's Christmas, buddy, how about giving politics a rest for a day?

On a blog titled "Daniel's POLITICAL Musings"? Should you even get the benefit of the doubt?

Oh, and thanks for proving yet again the point of my previous post. Happy New Year!

Anonymous said...

Um, sure Anon. All those Oregonians voted for all those politicians knowing years, and in Goldschmidt's case, decades in advance that they would later do all those things. LOL!!! Do you Miglavians ever think before you post? Knucklehead.
