It is time for all Occupy movements to occupy churches and not for profits around the country. They subvert wealth for their own purposes. Their property is removed from the tax rolls causing harm to property owners who are forced to pay their fair share. It is time these tax dodges were forced to contribute and relieve the 99% of the burden caused by this tax evasion. The Government canuse the money to feed the poor, provide shelter for the homeless and jobs to the unemployed. Occupy the Churches and Not for Profits !

Take part of donations away from a care giving organization to be redistributed by the government to other care giving organizations. hmmm....

So take from very well run places such as the salvation army the people who work for free or close to it and instead give it to the government to spend.

No the government is not the magical cure all people think.

I am not for taxing the churches but I AM for religiously affiliated hospitals and the like to be taxed. I am also for redefining those organizations that fall under "education" like testing companies to be taxed. We need to have some serious conversations on the big business of education.
