I am asking the right how much TIME they actually donate to those less fortunate, not their dollars.
Based on what you said, more than you. Every week of the year. How much more I won't go into because I don't believe in bragging about it in public.
Really

The only reason I said it was because Charity comes from the heart. It does not just come from writing a check. That is the easy part of charity. The hard part is doing and actually seeng what goes on. It might surprise you. Go on Sandy, yes you admitted it in another thread that you were Sandy,give it a try.
You think I am tooting my horn? What about the DeVos' and your buddy Pete Secchia, you know the one you had lunch with.

Yes, I think you are bragging. As for your other insulting remarks, try the Adopt A Family through the United Way. Want to see poor and mentally ill and uneducated?? Try it some time. How about going to Gilda's club and seeing people with cancer trying to cope?? How about giving your work clothes that you don't wear anymore to Women in Transition?
You know what Sassy? Does shove it mean anything to you? You self righteous, better than thou, hypocrite!

I did read your post. Here is what you said:

"It is quite obvious by the posts that I have read in this forum that the right does not believe in charitable giving to those less fortunate then them. They want to keep it all to themselve's."

What EXACTLY was your point behind that comment?
My gosh! Do you really believe that?
If you, by making that comment truly believe that way, then I feel sorry for you.
For you to make charity a partisan issue, is beyond belief.
"The right does not believe in charitable giving to those less fortunate than them "????
Really?
WTF
Maybe you should go downtown and visit the childrens hospital!
Those DAMN conservatives!
That place wouldnt be there without them!
