Goddamn American public education...how did I not know about this? And may say I love her statement “Abraham ‘F!@#ing’ Lincoln.” Not only did he scrap the Constitution and Declaration with his “for the people” BS, he got rid of a good holiday. I don’t how, but I am celebrating this day from now on.
What does it say about the world when I’m learning history from The Daily Show?
It’s the holiday season, which is supposed to be a season of giving. So below I have a few links to some charities and non-profits you might want to consider. I’ll be honest there are few of the traditional charities here because I see providing food and shelter and researching disease to be treating symptoms of problems that would be better solved through greater education…but to each his own. Just don’t ever money to the Red Cross, it’s possibly one of the most racist, corrupt and evil organization on Earth. And supporting veterans and their families is a bit of a no-brainer.
As far as I know these 11 organizations are legitimate organizations where your money will go directly to the cause they say it will. (Please inform me of any information to the contrary). If you gave $5 to each that would only be $55…is your budget so tight that you can’t spare $55? If so, then I hope this coming year finds more abundance for your life…if not…well it’s up to you.
Oh, and clear out all that spare change you’ve accumulated over the year by putting it in the Salvation Army cans. You know you should. It’s sad I need to remind you of this.
