Unintended Support

For decades, I have been on the warpath against abusive charities, who use well intended donations to feather the nests of their officers and support unsavory organizations. A few years ago, I riled supporters of United Way by pointing out in my newsletter that it is nothing more than an expensive middleman in the processing of charitable donations.

Nothing has changed since then. In this time of massive outpourings of public support for the victims of the terrorists, donors are being exploited once again. Although the fundraising appeals by the large charities (United Way & Red Cross) claim to be specifically for the 9/11 victims, that is not how the money is being distributed. They are giving the money to their same pet projects, many of which are outright anti-American and Communist in nature. David Limbaugh has more details on some of these donations in this column.

I have always been a rabid believer in controlling how one's money is spent, which is the genesis of my hatred for taxes, which transfer control to corrupt politicians. Of course, if your personal beliefs are in synch with those of the Red Cross and United Way, you have the choice of continuing to send them your money and letting them disburse it for you. However, if you want to ensure that the funds reach the actual charities and people that you believe deserve it, you will have to bypass the big guys and send the money directly to the individual charities yourself.
