Well as far as 40 percent of money getting to help those in need, wouldn’t you think that they have to bank alot of the donations for emergency purposes if say another Katrina were to happen?....... I mean come on, how would the Red Cross be able to help anyone in an emergency if they had not banked alot of it resources. Just my opinion.

I have a big issue with the Red Cross, and have no trust for what they do at all. My grandmother was in the Red Cross during the early stages of WW2, and I do respect her for that, but I just can't stand behind and trust a company that will take donated blood and then turn and sell it to the hospitals that need it.

I see the links and understand what you are saying but.... if I were to set up a group of people to say run a charity for domestic abuse then I would want it's directors and members to have expertise or their fingers in such things as medicine, counselling, housing, law, police, childcare, marriage guidance....
It would be little or no use for them to be farmers, electricians and swimming instructors...

The name of the secret society, the Rosicrucians translates into English as the Rose Cross or Rosy Cross. It seems like a small step to go from the Rosy Cross to the Red Cross. I'm not sure if there is a connection between the Rosicrucians and the Red Cross organization but the similarity in names really makes me wonder.
Of all the crap that is going on and is NOT GOOD in this world -- do we really have to look under the covers like this?
