Recently, in the Rose Garden, President Trump signed an executive order regarding religious freedom, and in it, gave a directive not to enforce the Johnson Amendment, which forbids pastors from disagreeing from the pulpit about government encroachment of our liberties. As such, pastors can now preach about all issues, including politics without fear of losing tax exempt status. Yet, some pastors say they are going to stick to scripture, so as to NOT be influenced by rich members from the congregation who insist on certain issues being preached, or no donation. Is this executive order a good move, even if it fulfilled a campaign promise to faith-filled voters?

 President Obama has now surfaced after four months being out of the office and he’s on the speaking circuit. To get him booked is expensive. He’s commanded $400.000.00 for a 90 min speech at a health conference, but a Wall Street firm has booked him anyway. Liberals are highly disappointed or even angry, saying the speaking fee undermines everything he believes in. Thoughts?

When the government raises taxes on businesses, they don’t consider themselves greedy. But Philadelphia’s Mayor considers retailers greedy, because they pass onto the consumer a tax increase of 1.5% on sugary beverages, almost doubling the price of a 12-pk of cans, and 2-liter bottles. The city tax on sugary beverages is killing retailers dropping sales by as much as 50% for these businesses.  The city is thrilled because the tax is bringing in a huge increase to their coffers. As a result, many people are choosing to shop outside of Philadelphia to buy drinks. In short the shop owner takes a hit, if he doesn’t’ sell the beverage. Is the government being fair?
