Liberal Charity

A few years ago some note was made of the fact that Al Gore gave a total of some $275 to charity as reported on his income of several hundred thousand dollars. This did not surprise those of us who hold the view that liberals are much more generous with the money they take from us than their own. Those who are constantly wanting to raise taxes to give to someone else are notably reluctant to just write a check to the IRS to increase their contribution to the effort. At any rate, the Obama tax returns were just made public and Hillary is once again promising hers will be released one of these days. I am sure we can take her at her word.

Obama is a pretty typical liberal in his giving. Last year he was most generous and gave 6.1% of his income to charity and in 2001 and 2002, the level of giving was about 0.4-0.5%. Evidently, the anti-American sermons of his friend the Reverend Wright did not cover tithing.
