Squawk of the day - April 18, 2013

"The Obamas donated $150,034 to various charities in 2012. However, I saw only one gift to a church — $1,000 to the St. John’s Church. The other $149,034 is not considered tithe. The Bidens donated a whopping $7,190 to various charities from an adjusted gross income of $385,000. Does that tell you anything about the two men we have running this country?"

For more squawks, pick up a copy of today's Albany Herald.

If someone chooses not to tithe then that is their business. Most Christians don't tithe and even fewer tithe ten percent.

My family decided that we wanted to tithe ten percent and believe God will bless us for doing it. I choose not to judge someone else because they do not wish to tithe.

Let those who are without sin cast the first stone.

Tells me a lot, but nothing that i did not already know. Wonder if they are at the scene in Texas where the fertilizer plant exploded last night? Bet not.

I understand you want to see the President not respond, so you can take a hit at him. He has a mail threat of ricin as well as a bombing in Boston. You may not like him, yet the secret service makes the call where it is safe for him to travel. He still is the President.

Most have never been outside of Albany yet they believe that they reflect the opinions of the rest of the country. The Squawk just confirms the stereotype that southerners are ignorant.

I don't like liars. At work I told people 'the only way to solve a problem is to deal in the truth and the hardest part of solving a problem is finding the truth'. At work most did not lie but we had different stories due to different perspectives. When people lie deliberately there is very little hope of solving problems. I am also uncomfortable around dimwits.

What do they care, can't run for a third term. Biden couldn't find Texas with a flashlight and both hands.

On another subject, not sure if this article would qualify as a "Bright" (Peanut sales) or a "Squawk" (unguarded observation about Albany in first paragraph). http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324763404578428862496641112.html?mod=WSJ_article_comments#articleTabs%3Darticle

There's plenty of jobs out there if anybody is willing to put in a day's work for a day's pay. Unfortunately...........that porch is just too comfortable this time of year and that mailman still come 6 days a week.

It's a lot easier to relax on the porch in the shade rather than being out there in the heat working for peanuts....... let the mailman do the work right sister? Hee Hee

I agree with @Sherwood_Eagle_Alum. It is their business and that is between them and God. And just because they didn't publicy tithe doesn't mean they didn't. We are not God so we don't know that for sure.

The main difference between God and O'Bama is that God doesn't think He's O'Bama.

No, it is that Obama is real.

Being an atheist does not make you an intellectual. Even if you believe otherwise, He is real and He loves you.

An associate professor at Florida’s Brevard Community College has been fired after school officials say she handed out pledge cards to students urging them to vote for President Barack Obama.

The school’s board of trustees terminated Sharon Sweet on Wednesday after a three-month investigation, but she plans on fighting the decision, FloridaToday.com reports.

The pledge cards, handed to her math students last November, had a picture of Obama on the top and a red flag with the phrase “Pledge to vote!”

The college determined that Sweet violated a code of conduct that prohibits employees from seeking support for political candidates, FloridaToday.com reports.

Sweet, a registered Democrat, says she was participating in non-partisan voter registration on campus and didn’t see the parts of the pledge cards with Obama’s image.

The Squawker is complaining that the Obama's only pledged $1K to a church, implying that they should have donated more.

What would the Squawker had said if he gave money to only one mosque or one temple? Probably that it "proves" that they are not xtians. But giving to one church doesn't 'prove' that they are xtians?

Obama gave a lot of his money to people who needed it. Why can't you consider that a good thing? Why does any of it have to go to a religious organization?
