If that was the only argument then Russel wins every argument.
if this is a repost, it deserves to be here...

I like the Prime 95 Lunch specials, do it all the time (and it's usually empty), Ottimo is sometimes an assault on the senses (hearing )

rereading this I see it might come across kinda snarky, not how I meant it.
It was a legit question if that was based on any real information/data or just what seems non-suspicious to you.
can it be opinion based on fact?  (we can get CM to chime in if need be)

I'm not saying it can't be legit. That doesn't mean it doesn't look suspicious.
if it's 70k it's suspicious if it's 35 it isn;t even if it's 100%

my gut feeling tells me that claiming 90-100% of your income as parsonage makes you more likely to be audited.
if it's all valid housing expenses, why would it

if it's low enough, some may want higher for purpose of EITC

on another note, many mosdos are not comfortable giving more than 50% of total pay as parsonage
Parsonage is counted as income only for the purpose of phasing out the EIC
it cannot help you meet the income target

How about you let us know what methods of publicity you DO approve of.
BTW, i'm not against signs, i'm against not collecting them timely and leaving them to be a nuisance and hazard for cars and pedestrians (and weapons for the neighborhood bully)
Obviously the TWP agreed so they made an ordinance but what good is that if they dont enforce it

I don't know, but these recorded phone calls have reached the point of driving me insane. They are relentless, and come at the worst of times. If an organization wants money, can't they have the decency of having a live person call me and ask?

I would like to propose a solution. It is only the core, and more thought would have to be done to implement it successfully.

A petition should be circulated (not just online - many Lakewood residents don't have access) that reads roughly as follows:

"Robocalls have become an increasingly bothersome phenomenon. [expound on the annoyingness and insensitivity here.] As much as we try to give tzedaka to every worthy organization, circumstances have driven us declare that we will not donate money to any organization that engages in such tactics. It may bother us to withhold our money, but it serves as our only method of ending this madness once and for all. (We will once again consider donating after a year [or other time frame] has passed.) Besides for donating, we will refrain from attending any event advertised via recorded message to our phones, and will also refrain from voting for any candidate [whom we can verify (we don't want sneaky candidates callings us with recorded messages to vote for their opponents)] who engages in these robocalls as well. Please understand us. Calls with recorded messages at all times of the day rob us of our menuchas hanefesh. If you have a message important enough for us to hear, kindly have a live person pick up the phone and give us a call. Thank you,

Signed [by enough people to convince organizations to stop robocalling us]"
can we do this for all those  signs left all over town  too?
