A fine in any other circumstance is a tax but not according to Obama


Hey ObamAcorn, Since you didn’t like the definition of tax given to you by George Stephanopoulos from the Merriam Webster dictionary, I thought I would go to the Oxford Dictionary to get a definition. I have always heard that this dictionary is the standard to use for definitions of words. This is an explanation about the Oxford Dictionary. Oops, you probably won’t like this one either since Oxford is in England, and we have seen how much you like the English.

Here is its definition of TAX – from AskOxford

tax

• noun 1 a compulsory contribution to state revenue, levied by the government on personal income and business profits or added to the cost of some goods, services, and transactions. 2 a strain or heavy demand.

• verb 1 impose a tax on. 2 pay tax on (a vehicle). 3 make heavy demands on. 4 charge with a fault or wrongdoing.

— DERIVATIVES taxable adjective.

— ORIGIN from Latin taxare ‘to censure, charge, compute’.

Oh, I like the phrase compulsory contribution to state revenue. Yep, I think that shows that a fine that is compulsory to pay to the state is a TAX!!!

    I’m guessing he judges the mentality of the alphabet network viewers to be on a par with that of ACORN workers . . .

    Obama knows full well that conservatives could poke a dozen holes in the claptrap he distributed on the Sunday “news” talk shows.

    Which is why he will never appear on Fox. That’s where the intelligent Patriots gather.

    I did not watch any of them, just video snippets. However, I did read transcripts. Put the two together and it’s the supercilious tone he takes that speaks volumes. No one has the right to question Dear Leader.

    As has been stated before, when government programs such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid are broke—and the latter two rife with corruption & fraud—-why should we believe that a takeover of 20% of our economy should be entrusted to this bunch???
