allylloyd: The mother is guilty of lying...
The people who supported her are guilty of STUPIDITY!

//Lying is a crime.
//Stupidity isn't. Now, ask yourself, who's really the criminal...


The mother, obviously enough. How are the folks who supported her stupid? And, even if stupid, how does that somehow validate taking advantage of them?

99.998er: The 50 worst charities in America devote less than 4% of donations raised to direct cash aid. Some charities gave even less. Over a decade, one diabetes charity raised nearly $14 million and gave about $10,000 to patients. Six spent no cash at all on their cause, but of course that is legal.


How many billions of dollars have been poured into major charities like Komen, etc and yet we aren't even close to curing any disease. How is it we cures polio in the 1950's yet despite advances in science and increased finding we haven't cured a goddamn thing?

Surprisingly I've seen something like this firsthand. I had this roommate who brought his wife to stay with him for a month or two during the summer (he was an engineer) and she was a real biatch. Well, we looked her up online and she had a crowdfund thing going on where she's talking about how her husband has left her and is abusing her, and that she has cancer (facts we verified were not true). She raised thousands of dollars from people fooled on the internet. Best part? Her husband is a rich engineer, so she wasn't exactly lacking in money.

Pfft. I blame the suckers who gave this person the money in the first place. There's a sucker born every minute as they say.

This is no different than a charity showing starving children in Africa on tv while they use 90% of the donations on their salaries.

Bottom line is, you give to a charity to make yourself feel better, not the kid with cancer.

LiteWerk: Sounds about like what politicians at the national level do. They say things people want to hear, even though they have no intention of following through on the promise. They're really all about enriching themselves and their immediate family, all while pretending to care about you, the voter.


Not to threadjack, but if running for office is all the probable cause you'd need to conclude I'm this sort of person, why the hell should I run for office and try to do an honest job to represent you?

I don't know about the rest of the country, but if you're represented by a sociopathic scumbag liar, you're getting just the sort of representation you deserve, because there sure ain't any altruistic upside to catering for your vote.  Who the fark else would run for office in your district, then?

Not that I think the kid would fare any better in gov't care if they took him away from the parents, but one just knows this kid's childhood is farked and wish something could be done about it to make it better.

Mother is cray cray, but maybe some counseling or meds could help her. Sounds like she has a disorder similar to 'munchausen by proxy'. She liked the attention for herself and kid more than the money, but at least the kid did get to go to Disneyland.
