I basically knew and understood about these "charities' more than 30 years ago while working on the Chrysler/ AMC assembly line in Kenosha, WI. The labor Union- Local 72 UAW, and the Company who wanted to look good on paper made fun and derision of me for refusing to donate to the "United Fund" where some of the money was allocated to Gay/ Homosexual Groups in the country [which violated my biblical Christian sensibilities at the time], so I gave a few dollars to the Union Steward, and told him to buy himself a few beers, just to prove that I wasn't a cheap skate! At that time, in the 1970's the American Kidney Foundation's Prez got over $100,000 per year to 'run that org.' I donated plenty to my own church and helped people out all the time when emergencies came up... and invited many poor families and friends to my house for dinners and cook outs! It's was, and still is, the PRINCIPLE of being forced to do something against my will! All my friends and church know me as a very generous, kind man. As a matter of fact, right now I am GIVING away many expensive things after my dear wife passed away! But I won't give or sell things of value to greedy, godless jerks!
