Rendering unto Caesar in a progressive tax system

Rather than say that taxes shouldn’t be paid at all, or that Caesar has a unlimited right of taxation, Christ put Caesar in his limited place.

May the deductions be ever in your favor!

Now to pretend I’m in a good mood about this legalized robbery that can be outsmarted to defeat the point…


I trimmed my bangs Audrey Hepburn-style, per Mr. Director’s preference.

In better news…tonight is Passover!

Active Compassion for the Persecuted –

Willing To Be Examined

"Man was at first a perfect upright Creature, The lively Image of his Great Creator: When Adam fell all men in him Transgress'd, And since that time they Err, that are the best, The Printer Errs, I Err much like the Rest. Welcome's that Man, for to complain of me, Whose Self & Works are quite from Error free."
- Nathaniel Ames (Almanack), 1729.
My constant prayer is to glorify the LORD far beyond my own finite imagination!

"Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have walked in my integrity, and I have trusted in the LORD without wavering. Examine me, O LORD, and try me; Test my mind and my heart."

- Psalm 26:1-2
