Lately I've noted many TV adverts like "The Wounded Warriors Project" which ask for us to give a charity donation to support services for military veterans who need them. Briefly stated, our government which used these people is not paying for the consequences of the results of the veteran's service and asks other citizens to provide voluntarily to a charity to absolve the government (us collectively) of its moral obligation. Why doesn't everyone recognize this as a despicable system? What portion of donations to these charities actually provide services?

It's sad when we the people, as a whole, don't look after we the people, particularly those who have played their part and paid the price. I don't know about the actual charities.

Here are some statistics

Thanks SueN. There's a charity rater site in my notes somewhere that does a good job if it's still around. I'll post it if I find it. Right now my lower back is insisting that I be still. (Bad back!!)
