The job-stealing scam — Texas is the biggest con

Well, then perhaps maybe you just need to get over yourself. I didn't say atheletes who GIVE their money to charity, I said they RAISE money for charity I AM impressed by ANYONE who takes the time to organize charity functions to raise money for causes such the fight against autism, breast cancer, COPD, juvenile diabetes, and cystic fibrosis. They support organizations advocating for the well-being of animals, children's homes throughout the country, the Make-A-Wish foundation, senior centers and veterans. They visit children and wounded veterans in hospitals . They raise money to help build new new hospital wings. They advocate for those among us that are vulnerable. A few years ago, a bunch of them went with the USO to visit our troops in Iraq. These aren't a bunch of $100 million jocks who throw out some of their money to charity so they can feel good about themselves. They are men, and their wives, who get out and help raise the money and are actually personally involved not only with the causes they support, but with the people involved, many of which are children. I was looking for an article that I read earlier this year that talked about how much money these people have raised in the past few yrs. I couldn't find it, so I can't quote the exact figure, but over the past 5 yrs it was in the 9 figures. I did find this article, though, from a couple of yrs ago. Why don't you read it and see what some of these people really do with their time. And then maybe you can get off your damn high horse, because there are some folks out there with money who do genuinely care. http://msn.foxsports.com/nascar/story/nascar-dr...
