As long as they don't let this guy near a teleprompter, I think everything will be okay.

I just don't get it. We have a president who used to teache CONSTITUTIONAL LAW, but folks seem to think he doesn't know anything about it???? I have an inkling that he knows more than Mr Contitution.

I'm actually more worried about the one behind: "God only needs 10%..."
I just can't see how that sentence could end well (please let it be an obscure bible reference).

Anonymous- It's comparing taxes and tithes. The standard tithe is 10% of all your income.

How is it that god "needs" 10% of my income?
Why compare what people pay to buy paradise and what I pay to get a bit of civilization in my daily routine? Does god moonlight in ICBM and highway construction?

Going by his illustration it would appear that the Constitution now comes in a handy book format...

Oops, my bad... That's the "Con(c)titution."

re:"God only needs 10%..." sign

I, too, was at first really confused by the sign but now I understand it. One of the older "traditions" of the church was called tithing. Each year, the church would come around and collect your tithe - 10% of everything you owned. This goes way back to Old Testament times.

In other words, the sign is comparing modern taxation to biblical taxation and how "in the good old days" taxation only amounted to 10%.

Of course, that 10% went directly into the hands of a corrupt priesthood who used the money to fund extravagant churches and palatial mansions instead of using it to fund public schools, healthcare, public transportation, and public services, but details, schmetails.
