Butcher: Point 1 reminds you that there are ALREADY over 100 'special taxing options' in Lee county.

Point 2 is the plain fact that race is NEVER out of the equation: the system thrives on internal friction. Minority churches pass the latest and greatest of the legislative gimmicks on to the idlers. They do this with no constraint. If a White church were to appear to be political the thugs from the IRS are rite there to stop it. Urging folks to finally start to take a stand is my mission. I have stated in court to the IRS that I believe in paying lawful taxes for lawful functions of government. What ya think of them apples?

as for #2 - HALULUJIA BROTHER KIETH - don't really know why race has to come into the picture but it will be interesting to see if the "new tax" (assessment) will include churches and their real estate holdings as I believe they are now exempt from the tax rolls and appear to consume a lot of resources of the fire dept. throughout the year - until we meet again - AMEN

kieth - you can look at it as a tax anyway you want but the reality of it is you will pay more - a lot more - in homeowners insurance if the ISO rating in lowered because of a reduction of service from the fire dept.- your right - just another way to tax - but I for one would rather pay local and receive local as apposed to paying higher insurance rates to help out their stock holders - when someone calls 911 I'm sure they would rather have a fireman or EMT show up as apposed to an insurance executive thanking you for your primiums

Two things: 1-The insurance companies are mainly owned by the corporations doing business as the state of Florida and the federal government. This would just be another way to tax us.

2-To "get the message out" thru the churches is against tax laws. The "message" is nothing but political and churches are prohibited from being 'political'; White churches, that is. This law does not seem to affect minorities.
