Nothing, unless you are an Indian. And even then, not a whole hey lot.
Semper fi, pede!
Because it protects you too. In England, you are still officially born a member of the Anglican church and have to pay a tax not to be baptized into it. And if you decide you want nothing to do with that state church, you have to file as a member of any number of recognized faiths and/or atheist. And even then, your taxes go to pay for that rotting institution to the tune of £14 billion per annum. Oh and best part? The Church automatically gets 20% of the seats in the House of Lords, and that group can pass any law they want without input from the Commons, with the Queen's assent. Some of the laws they passed that way have literally nothing to do with the Church. So yeah, THAT is what the First Amendment is about. Not the nonsense morons like Michael Newdow peddle.
As a Gentile Christian I extend you a fraternal hug and tell you anyone spreading anti-semitism here hates me just as much as they hate you. They are here to stir up trouble, nothing else. Hamans, the lot of them.
I sell a service, my good pede. To companies. Fireworks are made in China.
Sending warm vibes, my pede. Your time is coming. I am supplying the companies upstream from yours, and they are buying. Something is in the wind.
From the People's Republic of Puerto Ricostan? The only guy here willing to sell you that is on a certain <ahem> corner of a certain place at 3 AM. He has no trouble getting his hands on them.
I already have it. My condo has armed guards 24/7/365. 2 during the day, 4 at night doing rounds. Controlled access by beeper or talking to the guard. And a big ass wall all around with stainless steel serpentine Nazi death camp wire. It's just a part of life in The People's Republic of PuertoRicoStan, where there is no 2nd Amendment and the cops have all gone to the mainland thanks to the shit pay.
Imagine the terror of seeing the President of the USA tweet that he is coming for you personally, and you will be cooling your heels in prison for 6 years after he is out of office.
Thanks, my dude! Much appreciated and MAGA on!
Thanks, my pede!
Yes, because every roll of breath mints has a glans on the tip.
Hate to be Mr. ACKSHULLY, but that is such bullshit, my pede. First off, everyone with a job here pays the same FICA taxes as anyone on the mainland. Second, the Federal income tax exemption only applies to the first $50K of income derived from sources here, and does not include anything else, such as investment income, royalties, etc. Or Federal income. All Federal workers like Coast Guard and CBP and Post Office and Federal prisons and Federal courts and US military personnel pay Federal and local income tax. Third, life is fucking hard here and literally almost no one else makes enough to pay any Federal income tax, even if they lived on the mainland. The average income is less than $11K per year. Eleven fucking thousand dollars. $800 per month. Local income tax kicks in at $400 per year and goes to 15% by the time you hit $10K, and steeply up from there. In a place that is California or Hawaii cost of living, the most expensive utilities in the US, and an 11.5% sales tax on everything, even food essentials and medicine. Some, like me, are small business owners and I assure you we are reamed by the same Federal business tax, personal income tax, Federal employer tax, investments tax, carried inventory, etc. etc. that you are. The "Puerto Ricans pay no Federal tax canard" is just that - a canard. 47% of people on the mainland pay no income tax, but if their average US income were applied here, they would pay 37% local income tax PLUS Federal income tax. In other words, were we to become a state, fewer people would owe Federal income tax than before. So it's not that simple. Chew on that for a bit.
A super rare coquípepe! I love it!
This is talking about property lines, pede. I like where you're going with this, but don't twist Scripture to suit your needs. Israel was divided between tribes, and each tribe was divided along lines of 5,000, 1,000, 100, and 50 families. The property lines were drawn up around the time of Joshua and this kept the tribes as separate entities. Keeping the tribes separate was important, as it was prophesied by Jacob and the prophets that the Messiah would come from the line of Judah as a King, and from Benjamin as a "suffering Savior." Joseph was descended from Judah and made Jesus his Son by adoption, and Mary was descended from Benjamin. This is what that passage refers obliquely to, not a general thought regarding monuments.
I see what you did there. Hahaha.
Or maybe they're in the 1%?
I didn't say that, nor am I gay myself. But this constant harping on the anal angle is completely off base.
Where do some pedes get this idea that all the gays are running around doing buttsex every night? Studies consistently show than less than 13% of homosexual males engage in it, and even less than 1% do it regularly. It's mostly ... other ways of pleasuring each other. Quit watching gay porn and make friends with a few gaypedes. You might learn a thing or two.
You gotta remove Puerto Rico from the dark brown color. We're the most racist place on God's green earth.
You are twisting their teaching completely. They say that when a person dies, they have no soul or consciouness because the breath of life is not in them, but that at the last day, all will be raised to life again. This is their doctrine. Then Ellen G. White issued an opinion - not church doctrine - proposing that perhaps in His mercy, those whom God tosses into the Lake of Fire are consumed and do not suffer for eternity, just that the effect of eternal damnation is eternal because they are eternally gone. Again, this is not church dogma, just the suggestion of the founder of the movement. I have several Seventh Day Adventist pastors as close friends. None of them teach this in their churches. As my neighbor, who is one, says, "If hell is not forever, it doesn't seem like much of a disincentive to sin or incentive to seek salvation." I don't know where your hatred toward these people started, but you really need to meet a few and realize that they are not the heretics you make them out to be. Apply the 1 John standard of orthodoxy to them and they fall squarely inside of biblical truth. There is freedom in the Body of Christ to agree on the essentials and differ on the nonessentials until all is made plain at the end.
He is 7th Day Adventist. The only difference between their theology and any other orthodox mainstream Christian church is they worship on Saturday and encourage (not require) a healthy lifestyle of vegetarianism and no alcohol. Nowhere do they say your salvation depends on obeying those rules. 7th Day Adventism is neither heretical nor a cult. They just think Jesus never got rid of the Sabbath. That is less of a difference than the one about baptism between Baptists and Catholics. Knock off the friendly fire.
This pede white supremacists.
Ignore. Just another Soros NPC. Report as libcunt troll and DEPORT, DEPORT, DEPORT! THEY HAVE TO GO BACK!
