It makes sense that schilling's humor is right up your alley; he caters to the lowest common denominator.

on the video he puts a stupid country song in the background, takes her comment out of context and over-dubs it with laughter.

So you are saying that Charlottesville is such a Metropolis that there is hardly any trees? I don't follow the Schilling Show but I found this mildly humorous. And I'm sure you have never taken anything out of context stated by conservative news sources.

No I didn't say that, you are as bad as Schilling.

Low income neighborhoods have less trees and it's not just a Cville issue:

Would STILL like to hear who's footing the bill for all of this nonsense! And what about the medical exam BEFORE they leave?! You can't just jump on a plane and fly over there -- I'd HATE to think of all the vaccinations you need beforehand and drugs you'd likely have to take with you "just in case."

Uh, no Huck...she means that "inner city residents don't know a tree from a brick." If anyone does not think the uber-left believes their constituency is dumb, then they are not listening to the uber-left.

As for "caters to the lowest common denominator," please explain to which denominators these cater...
1. Food stamps for years
2. Pizza parties for voters
3. Van rides to polling places
4. Welfare for years
5. Free health care for years
6. Public housing for life (with a year's free rent)
7. Joe Biden

So your point is Szakos favors your list but the schilling show video only proves she is contempuous of her constituents, pandering for their vote to get her hands on that lucrative $14,000/yr salary?

A foundation? the root word for discibing waste and fraud, just ask Lance Arnstrong. Any "donation" to a foundation is an instant tax write off.

Sure, it's okay to be wary of fraud, but there are charities that do actually do good, despite what cynics say.
Jimmy Carter's foundation has almost completely irradiated Guinea worm infection completely
http://www.cartercenter.org/health/guinea_wor...
The Bill and Melinda Gates foundation has reduced the number of reported cases of Malaria
http://www.gatesfoundation.org/What-We-Do/Glo...

If you're leery, there are charity watch organizations all over the web.

If you don't feel like giving, that's fine, it's your time and money, but if you do; here is a tool to help you take a step in the right direction in choosing one that may not be simply a tax right off.
