3. You are a human being, not a huge corporation so you don't matter.

Or so says our supreme court. Unless you have your own 600 billion dollars then they might give you another 600 billion dollars for no reason.

7. My Thoughts Exactly

 

But the older translations read more like " thou shalt not commit murder." Tax dollars for murder? Fine. Tax dollars to make life better? Not good. Jeff Sessions thinks that taking care of the people who do the dirty work is an entitlement. The DoD should be renamed to the Department of Offense and Corporate Resource Protection.

19. Hey, THIS is a fight we oughta start!

Okay, fine, Mr. & Mrs. America! Game ON! Funding the military-industrial complex so we can go out and kill masses of people in other countries for the sake of the oil barons - is against my religion! I want an exemption! Seriously!

How 'bout not just fighting fire with fire - let's hijack THEIR fire and fight with THAT!

But I rec the sentiment.

20. Fuck it. I think it's a fight worth picking.

Especially if we can get some publicity. Occupy started a new conversation - that has been widely and publicly credited with having an impact and moving the whole idea of income inequality farther to the front. Why not this, too?

the budget, are we entitled to a 50% tax rebate because it violates our deeply held religious beliefs?

28. The Court ruled corporate persons can refuse to pay based on religious beliefs, not human persons.

You're just a sad, little non-billionaire human. Your rights ain't shit.

31. Unless you own a corporation your beliefs don't matter.

That's the dividing line.

Corporate owners religious beliefs can be forced on others but not if you are just a citizen.
That's the law.

32. I remember talk of people not paying fed income tax back in the 60's with that

argument.

I do not clearly remember how the IRS ruled. I seem to remember some honking big fines and penalties being threatened if people followed peaceniks advocacy

37. As Colbert might say, "It's funny 'cause it's true."

Paying for the Pentagon, wars, etc., does violate my deepest spiritual beliefs.

Nail. Hammer. Head.

Thank you, Trumad.
