    Only a seriously deluded Leftist could possibly call a centrist 'extreme'.

    You know how the one's you know operate and exist. Are you saying your family or people you know of are representative of Connecticut?

    As for the vote on the Iraq war, 29 Democrat senators voted in favor of the action, 21 opposed. Are you saying that only one Democrat senator, Joe Libermann, did so from conviction, believing it the right thing to do, speaking up in favor of the action, and the other 28 voted in favor for political reasons, to protect their reelections or to avoid criticism? How proud of them you must be, how proud you must be to be a Democrat with such leadership.
    Ehhh...when the Senate is being told that Saddam has WMD's and is working in cahoots with terrorists to bomb US cities I can understand leaning to authorizing force. After more information finally came out...that's a different story.

    So it is Democrat policy, not just John Kerry's, to vote for a war before they vote against it.

    But Joe Lieberman decided to stick by his country through time of war and for that he 'primaried out'. And that just shortly after he was nominated for the vice-Presidency. We see that repeatedly from the left. Party first, country later.

    How would you describe "an extreme centrist"?

    Leftists are much the same everywhere. It doesn't really matter what country you're in. Get out more, read more, learn more, and you will see for yourself. Connecticut is just a small dot on the map, but Leftism is universal.

    Do you have anything but conjecture? Did you look at their tax returns?

    Or are you, like Grant, going to argue from positions of sheer ignorance?

    So, to your point, Rocket claiming that it's not "government" money and not "your" money is partly untrue.
    Do you have evidence this is happening? Also, where is your outrage on others actually caught violating the 501(c)3 code?

    I take it you didn't bother to read or understand the law in question, nor did you even bother to read the foundation's 990 returns?

    Furthermore, with the 2% itemized phaseout, the tax expenditure amounts aren't as big as partisans like to claim they are.

    It should embarrass every single one of you that Sangha read the 990 and you didn't.

    How can ANY of you even remotely think you are qualified to discuss this without reading their 990 and without reading and understanding the law in question?

    Jesus Christ. The Era of Free Information and so many of you are willfully ignorant. Shame.
