While I agree with the Salvation Army who we give to quite often trough out the year and also the SPCA as the Animals of this world are helpless victims to the cruelty of man -but I question the Red Cross as do many friends -their operating practices over the years have not been so stellar and I have never given to the United Way and their at work bullying tactics to give -also found to have embezzled funds . The Red Cross parked their relief truck in our yard after a hurricane here in Texas and had a Jar out for " Donations" for Sandwich's and coffee when people had absolutely nothing -and what happened to the 911 money -they like to mix up money drives -and give very little out.

I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone
Bono

In addition to unions, other soak-the-rich because they're evil types, and corporations-aren't-people so we can destroy them without hurting anyone, President Obama hooked up with Bono of U2 fame. I love the music but hate the hypocrisy. U2 moved its businesses from Ireland years ago to avoid paying taxes. Moreover, the ONE Foundation created by Bono is nothing more than another pity Africa and make us feel better organization that rich socialists cobble together to assuage their...
