    Angry Please Say it's not so!

    As reported via several news agencies....
    If these allegations are not "political" and hold true, this is a disgusting disgrace to say the least and an unfortunate truth about our society.

    Wounded Warrior Project under fire for reported overspending

    "According to the charity's tax forms, spending on conferences and meetings went from $1.7 million in 2010, to $26 million in 2014," the report states. "That's about the same amount the group spends on combat stress recovery — its top program."

    I sit on the board of directors of a large charitable-giving organization and we assess charities all the time for our donors. Most minds would be boggled to see the amount of a donation that actually reaches the end need. Case in point - Bono's "One Foundation" to feed the hungry collected millions yet paid out less than 2% of the total take to anyone who was hungry. A careful study into any charitable organization is vital before spending. Clinton foundation is a perfect example. Millions and millions have been taken in yet there's nobody alive who can say what this foundation actually benefits. Do your homework - don't just trust the catchy name.

    So DOC, if, "Millions and millions have been taken in yet there's nobody alive who can say what this foundation actually benefits," what's your point? You've just said that nobody knows.

    I've read that most large charities average over 90% administration costs?
    Is that accurate?

    As far as the so called Clinton Foundation, it doesn't even try to pretend to be a charity organization. It is the laundering mechanism for global bribes to the Clinton empire.

    they don't even bother to file the necessary tax paperwork in the state of holding.

    I give to the Gary Sinise Foundation. Their administrative costs are very low and distribution high. They do a lot for veterans and wounded warriors.
    I used to give a lot to WW, but I'm a little apprehensive about their use of money.

    Yea, I heard rumors about what the CEO and staff's salaries at WW. Plus look at all the commercials. You see them all the time from off time to prime time. That shit ain't cheap and seemingly pays off.

    I also read an article that said they were anti-gun. If that isn't a cue for liberalism, what is?

    So Jimbob Jughead Asshat, you don't want to hear anything about crooked administrators of Charities anymore eh? Why the hell not? Do you run one of the crooked charities or have a relative that does? People need to know about how the money is spent and who is running the show before they give their hard earned money away... Thanks Doc, for shedding a little light on the subject for us

    Roaddogg 4040, you're such a jerk
    There was not one time did I comment, "About crooked administrators of Charities." Is there something fundamentality wrong with your comprehension.
    DOC's use of the Clinton Foundation was out of line. DOC posted, "Millions and millions have been taken in yet there's nobody alive who can say what this foundation actually benefits."
    I'm not here to debate Charitable Organizations being good or bad, but by DOCS own words, "Nobody alive who can say what this foundation actually benefits."

    Roaddogg, what part of nobody knows do you not get? If nobody knows, then DOC wouldn't know either. They may do great things, but DOC said he doesn't know.
    DOC posts outrageous and fabricated statements all the time, when are you going to realize that?

    I get tired of responding to you're lunatic posts, they lack any reasoning on your part. You only read parts of various posts and then your replies are based on fabrications you make up.

    You don't piss me off, you just irritate me.
    Narrow minded ignorance does that.

    No, I can't say I do.
    By the way wolfie, next time you take a piss, face downwind.

    That way you won't have to wear wet shoes home again.

    It isn't free to raise 300 million. It isn't free to distribute it.


    Mariachi band? This isn't Adelle were talking about.


    If that is a "lavish Hotel" I must be a king.


    There has to be incentive. Good or bad, they appear to be doing better than many "Charitable institutions".


    Good talent costs money.


    I'm not going to become enraged from an MSM TV news blog that happens to portray itself as actual news. I don't trust them with tonight's weather report.
    The government's monetary role is to maintain the integrity of the monetary unit, not participate in fraud

    I don't think MSM TV is the only report questioning the fund raising organizations, but Carlson-jet is correct in that it takes good talent and organizational skills to accomplish what they've done.
    It isn't cheap to do that.
    When it comes to particular organizations everyone should do a little research to see if that's where they want to contribute.
