Charity or liberal advocacy front?This is just further proof that
the "United Way" has strayed very far from being an admired
"bundler" of charitable contributions to be distributed among worthy
causes. It is now little more than a liberal special interest group funneling
money from unsuspecting donors into disproportionately liberal causes.For several years I have refused to give to the United Way, or the Combined
Federal Campaign which is essentially the same thing but aimed at fleecing
federal workers. It is much better to give generously to those
charities that an individual likes, and avoid funding those which you do not
want to support. And that avoids wasting your charitable dollars funding the
United Way management overhead costs when you dollars go direct to operations
you want to support.
You can't find closer peas-in-a-pod than United Way and the Chamber.
The "Utah compact" is a laughing joke. The bills pushed by the
Chamber of Commerce never adhered to its "principles" It has made a
lot of us Hispanics wary of the Chamber and its selfishness to exploit cheap
Count me among those who consider it a plus that United Way considers the
immigrant a just cause.
