Looking for One Time Fixes: Any Indian Temples in RI?

Marc Comtois

Just dreaming:

In Southern India a story that sounds like the plot line of a Hollywood adventure film is unfolding. Over the past week, on orders from the country's Supreme Court, a panel has found a treasure estimated to be worth $22 billion in the underground vaults of a Hindu temple in Trivandrum, India.
Anyone checked the Legislative "vaults" lately?

"on orders from the country's Supreme Court, a panel has found a treasure..."

Well that's pretty easy. Can't we just have our Supreme Court order a panel to find a $22B treasure too?

There are treasures to be had from our temples of worship - start taxing them!

Clearly OTL is talking about the 49% of Americans that pay no federal income tax. There are about 230 million Americans. Imagine if we simply collected $1 from 49% of them? Right there is another $115M. That could go toward many of the social programs that they enjoy. How about $10 each? Now we're over a billion dollars. $100 each and getting $10 billion?

Oh the treasures....
