Vilifying the Salvation Army
harms mission of charity

Washington Times, by William Roberts

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/7/2012 5:23:08 AM

This year’s Red Kettle Campaign has begun, the annual Christmas fundraiser that helps The Salvation Army collect money to meet human needs in local communities across the country. Each year’s campaign brings heightened media attention to The Salvation Army, particularly regarding its beliefs and practices. In particular, we face such questions as: How does The Salvation Army help people in need? Are we a church? Perhaps most important, is the organization truly committed to serving all those in need? The Salvation Army is a Christian organization, founded by a small group of people in

Just sent a donation to the Salvation Army as they were the only group driving around the Jersey Shore area offering hot coffee and snacks to everyone who was dealing with the destruction of their home. My neighbor said she got a hug too when she started crying. No sign of the Red Cross, just lots of Salvation Army trucks.

I´ve rung the bell along with other members of my civic group for several years. The Sal Army is more than helping poor people by direct charity. It is also a job training center for the down and out but who are willing to try and work. Support your local Salvation Army store because that´s where the work product (refurbished furniture, housewares, clothing) is sold. Who knows? You might find an Antiques Roadshow treasure!

The Liberal Army is on a neverending quest to eliminate any organization that does not uphold their politically correct groupthink. The Salvation Army does good work and they are constitutionally entitled to their religious beliefs as we all are. I am not a member of their church but I donate to them whenever possible. We need to hold on to whatever shreds of humanity still exist in this country.

Great organization!

It was, however, really disheartening when Salvation Army joined very vocally with Christians Against Climate Change, a group of global warming airheads. Totally wrong for Salvation Army to inject itself into politics.

SA is one of the best orgs around. Always a very low overhead percentage and very high money directly to needy percentage. #5 - where did you see this?

A charity we used to give to closed recently so I went on yelp.com to find the closest Salvation Army or Goodwill. I was only looking for directions but instead found hateful comments about S.A. telling people not to donate to them, claims that S.A. ate gays, they´re an evil Christian charity, the usual leftwing rants. So yes, we decided that Salvation Army is our new charity of choice.

Years ago when I checked about the % of money that the different charities received actually went to those in need the Salvation Army was at the top of the list. You would be surprised at the amount some of the other organizations take for overhead. That´s why the SA is at the top of my list when I give to charity.

Ditto, 9, And my special preference is based on my Dad´s similar experiences in Korea. Plus the SA are good-hearted, sincere people who REALLY make a difference. It is outrageous that the sanctimonious left, ever preening about their concern for the less fortunate, have the rotten nerve to disparage those (the SA)they should be praising and helping.

Of course, the liberals are going after the Salavation Army. The libs´ real objective is to smear and destroy all societal institutions but the state-- thus the enless campaigns against the Boy Scouts, the Catholic church, the Baptist church, Christmas, Christianity, and on and on.

I´m going to make sure that I contribute more than I have in past Christmases to the Salvation Army.

SA does great things and it´s a great charity but I hate that it´s squishy on abortion. I will keep giving my money to local pro-life charities and the Catholic church instead.

On upcoming trip, Obama
will try to pivot to Asia - again
McClatchy Newspapers, by Lesley Clark    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:19:38 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the departure

While the media is obsessed with the Koch brothers this campaign season, a billionaire hedge fund manager from San Francisco just bought off the White House to the tune of $100 million in order to delay the Keystone XL pipeline decision. From Fox News: The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections.

Rapist’s painting hung in the White House

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010. But Choe also has a rape fetish. On the podcast that he co-hosts with porn star Asa Akira, he

Martinez and the War on GOP Women
Commentary Magazine, by Jonathan S. Tobin    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:01:50 AM     Post Reply
One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it. How would American Indian

The Coming Real Estate Hyperpocalypse:

Some good folks are pig-biting mad about my recent article noting that the rate of foreclosures has dropped dramatically as a result of the reinflation of the real estate market.(Snip for tweet)Some of the vituperation is coming from the usual gang of housing justice fairness activists incensed that anybody (let alone a majority of homeowners and experts) would oppose the practice of giving public assistance to people who borrowed money with no intention of paying it back. But a lot of the abuse stems from a sentiment I agree with — that declaring victory on mortgage defaults means you have

Timing is everything in politics and the latest Fox News poll suggests the timing of the 2014 midterm election could not be worse for President Obama and his fellow Democrats. With public approval of Congress in the single digits, senators and representatives in both parties may face the most challenging political environment of their careers. But the Fox survey makes clear that things aren´t breaking well for Obama, either, and his popularity rating may be the most important factor in determining how Democrats fare in November. Presidents have been unpopular before. Harry Truman´s approval rating sank to 23 percent at

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
