Explain to me how we have 106 million folks on some type of entitlement program, (not counting SS) and yet still need charity organizations to fill in the 'holes'? Explain the giant salaries of most of these charity organizations. No, I'm not being Scrooge looking for poor houses, I do have my own favorite charities, but, looking at Dec's mail, I'm in awe of how many charities there are.. Friday, we delivered 2 huge boxes of food and goods to a "poor family", they had just returned from a local charity that had filled the back of their van with over a month's supply of food, and gifts. This family also gets food stamps, free medical, and a welfare check. Are we keeping them poor by enriching them for not working or trying?
