When I was working and able I always donated to charities. Once a woman called asking for money for some thing or another and I told her I was unemployed and my husband disabled. She said, "Well I understand, but some people dig deep into their pockets..." I hung up. If we gave to every organization asking for donations we would be needing donations ourselves.
More and more people are losing jobs or getting their hours cut. Some people are choosing between food and life saving medicines. True, there are many selfish people, but we also have poor and struggling families right here in America.

Enough, is, enough!!!
Please donate to these starving children, with your help and just a few spare dollars we could feed 3 entire families... Please help find a cure to this world threatening disease before it spreads and wipes out another indigenous village containing one of the few remaining shaman.
There will always be some insignificant issue happening somewhere in the world...
But guess what people...
I live in America and we have real issues here!!! Just like Canada, and most of Europe!!!
FWP is spreading faster than any insignificant plague out there, it's more serious than any famine... But do you hear them talk about FWP on main stream media? Do they collect charity for us???
No, nobody tries to help...
But that's going to end, I'm going to help make others aware!!!
WARNING: This video is not for the faint of heart...
Heff, that was one hell of an analogy!

For the past several months I have been arguing in political threads and one of the constant topics is social entitlements and social consciousness. Whenever that subject is tabled, my opponents almost always say "That's what charity is for". Which frustrates me deeply because, in reality, there are even political lobbying groups here in the US that legally qualify as "charitable and tax exempt organizations". While there are worthwhile charities ( SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL FOOD BANK! ) many are just mega-corporations masquerading as charities.
I find the whole subject eternally frustrating. Watching America and how Americans behave, today, is like watching a room full of three year olds fighting over a toy and screaming "MINE, MINE, MINE" while the older kids quietly sit back, emptying out the majority of what was in the toybox, to begin with, for themselves.
