This is in contrast to genuine charitable giving, which some have called, “Paying it forward.” For instance, when I give to someone in need because I am moved with compassion, this is not a “free” gift. It was actually purchased at a high price on a cross 2,000 years ago. ~ TD
“If you are not paying for it
you’re not the customer;
you’re the product being sold”
– (attributed to) Andrew Lewis
Think about the meaning of the word, “free,” every time you bait a fish hook. And I don’t think Obama does “catch and release” fishing.
