NICE DEED OF THE WEEK AWARD: All too often we see the bad side of athletes, take a look at one of the good guys of the NBA, Zach Randolph …
Zach Randolph shows why he is one of the most active players in giving back to the community as he literally gives the shirt off his back to a special needs fan. The Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph was just awarded the Kia Assist award for November for his contributions in the community and we can certainly see that he is well deserved.
Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph received the November Kia Community Assist Award in recognition of his charitable efforts and contributions in the community, the NBA announced today.

TAXING OF CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTIONS … MORE OBAMA CHANGE:
Think that this is change you can believe in … reducing tax deductions on the wealthy who make charitable donations. What does Obama have against the wealthy? Who does he think makes charitable contributions but people who actually have money to give, especially during hard economic times.
President Barack Obama is defending a budget idea that would reduce the tax deduction that wealthier families can take when they make charitable donations.
Obama says the plan is “the right thing to do.”
Speaking at a prime-time news conference, the president said the change in tax policy would be realistic and fairer to lower-earning families that make charitable gifts but get a smaller tax deduction. Some lawmakers don’t like the idea. They say it could hurt donations to needy groups in a time of need.
With non-profits already struggling to bring on charitable contribution, Barack Obama in his infinite wisdom looks to make it even harder. Why would anyone want charities to get less money? Maybe because in Obama’s socialist America, those in need are forced to look to the government, not those who actually care and provide services.
Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State and Past Donors … Conflict of Interest, Quid Pro Quo … Developer Robert J. Congel?
Every one wants to focus on Blago-gate and the “pay for Senate seat” scandal that has rocked Democrat Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his brazen attempt at profiteering. The quid pro quo that is being alleged and has now created impeachment proceedings against the Illinois governor. The question that really needs to be answered is if these types of dealings are commonplace and Blagojevich just got caught.
Politics dealings in states and at the federal level seem to be a cross between the “cockroach theory” and the principle of “pigs get fat and hogs get slaughtered.”
This leads us to Hillary Clinton and the recent disclosures of the donors to the Clinton Library. What about Hillary Clinton and her what all but seems to be quid pro quo donations for favoritism? An upstate New York developer, Robert J. Congel, donated $100,000 to President Bill Clinton’s foundation shortly after Senator Hillary Clinton helped secure a provision in a highway bill that set aside $5 million for Destiny USA roadway construction.
ACORN is a non-profit, tax exempt entity that is supposed to be non-partisan as they take US tax payer dollars to supposedly get out the vote.
How brazen are they? Even after all the information that has been in the news regarding voter registration fraud and their partisan dealings with Barack Obama … they release the following video of support for the Obamamessiah.
Have to see to believe. So why is their tax exemption not revoked? Why are American tax payers money going to a politically partisan outfit?
