    Don't know but the Clinton foundation gets their money from rich people, they probably know what they're paying for.
    Wounded Warrior project is appealing to the working class types for donations.

    You are correct. This is disappointing to me since I am a donor. I usually research organizations before I donate. The truth is that this country should take care of service connected disabilities. But I can tell you from experience it is easier to get health care for an illegal alien than for a veteran.

    NY Times? They have their own agendas too. But it does seem one has to question everything these days. If I send out a few bucks I like a contribution going right to the place. Like an animal shelter or my nephews school, somewhere I could go see if wanted not a po box somewhere. At least it makes me feel better

    Notice a lot of charities or organizations prefer to have access directly to your bank account for automatic monthly withdrawals.

    I saw a clip on TV about this, I forget what station. I don't understand how some people can live with themselves, I know that I couldn't do it. :9529:

    What can I say this reminds of my favorite scene from the movie Casino when Nicky Santoro gets the message.
    Funny thing on Youtube after you watch one thing another comes on get this The Phil Leotardo Whacking
    followed by every ice job ever done on the Sopranos.
    Hey it turned into a great day!

    Here I get you started:

    I'm not defending the Wounded Warriors program since I only donate to the DAV and American Legion. But does anyone else find it strange that this comes out the same time Trump is doing his fund raiser for the Wounded Warriors?

    Sadly I think its the way most charities are run these days, they become expensive money gathering machines with all the corporate trappings and huge budgets that gobble up a good portion of the donations, hopefully they'll take this as a wake-up call and pull in their horns and get back to more of the mission intended.

    Your saying they swindled The Rump?
    In Rumps desperation to appeal to Veterans somebody stepped up and picked his pockets.
    Well they aren't all bad then

    Government actually does a much better job of it. I think the overhead costs for SS & Medicare are around 5% a far cry from what private enterprise charges

    I did not make that connection and I am not so sure that it is the case. I'm more inclined to call it a coincidence. The clip I saw took some time to produce, maybe even months in the making and I don't think the Trumpster came up with this idea all that long ago.

    Not surprising at all.Whether its certain media outlets or PAC,s,its just another try to derail Trump,s candidacy by one of these groups or establishment Rhino,s.Trump should get a big boost out of this attempt.

    The event will take place at 9 p.m. Eastern (just like the GOP debate) and will be broadcast on CNN.

    Watch for "free" and provide credit card information don't work for me so I guess I'm relegated to hearsay and second hand information. :shrug:
