Please, if you have to steal from the SA bell-ringer, take the BELL.

This, that bell is one of the worst noises that I have to deal with this time of year. It makes me loathe all of them.

Until they start providing the same charitable services for homosexuals as they do for anyone else, they can keep having their kettles stolen as far as I'm concerned.

Was the person at the kettle paying attention to everything put into it? If not, how'd they KNOW there was $50 in it?

Does Target still have the policy that keeps the bell ringers (and the Girl Scout/Boy Scout Troop begging) from their store fronts?

I love SA because of their discriminatory practices.They took a stand and have stood by it. I like that. And if the gays would just quit being gay, they wouldn't have a problem.

Military commissaries have the same policy.  CSB:  one Christmas middle 90s, Ammo Flight decided to raise some money for charity, so we set up a schedule to go stand outside the Shaw AFB commissary.  Everybody came back with a few bucks, but I had an idea.  When my turn came up, my son (8 or 9 at the time) was off school so I took him with me and let him ring the bell...after coaching him to be as big-eyed and cutesy as he could be.

After two hours, we came back with almost $250.  My son and I got very nice attaboy letters from the bomb dump leadership and my squadron commander (who insisted on meeting my son and congratulating him personally)...and the squadron got a letter from the Services Squadron commander, who absolutely forbade any further charity efforts outside his commissary.  Seems some baggers were biatching that they weren't getting any tips because of 'those kids' bellringing".  The following year, whatever agency ran the commissaries throughout the service banned it for the same reason.
