Somewhere, Ayn Rand Is Smiling

Ryan-has-Ayn-right-where-he-needs-her

As famous zombie-eyed Granny-starver Paul Ryan is talking about poverty and how Christian Charity can solve that problem, America’s wang Florida is fining people for actually, you know, feeding the homeless:

After feeding the hungry in a Daytona Beach park every weekend for more than a year, it’s just as easy to imagine Chico and Debbie Jimenez given a ticker-tape parade as what they actually got: a slew of citations and a permanent ban from the park.

Chico and Debbie Jimenez, a husband and wife team, aren’t handing out food in the Florida heat every Wednesday because of a court order or for a paycheck. They do it because they believe helping the poor is their religious duty. The pair run a Christian outreach group, Spreading the Word Without Saying a Word Ministry, that gives food to the needy every week, pointing to Jesus’ words in Matthew 25:40: “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”

…According to the group’s Facebook page, Chico and Debbie, along with four volunteers, were each given multiple 2nd degree misdemeanor citations. The fines totaled $373 per person, $2,238 for the group. The police also permanently banned the group from Manatee Island Park. “We both have made a lot of good friends in the park and are devastated that we are banned the Manatee Park forever,” Debbie wrote. “I am heartbroken.”

Yes, it is morning in America.

    Not to worry. God has big plans for Daytona Beach. For you see, God is causing the Antarctic Ice Sheets to collapse increasing the flow of glaciers into the ocean thereby raising sea levels. It will be as if Daytona Beach, and most of the nations wang, never existed.

    After Hobby Lobby, isn’t this unconstitutional…? Can’t they claim a religious exemption? Anyone…?

      They could do a lot of things if they wanted to turn this into a battle of the lawyers. They won’t because they can’t and just maybe they will get a judge who really understands what charity is. On the other hand, this is in Florida so I’m not holding my breath.
