    I was just watching the news and it is really sad that what this world has come to.Guy walks up wraps his jacket around the Salvation Army kettle and walks off with it.

    That's about as low as you can get.
    People do despicable things.
    I feel guilty if I pass by without dropping some change in.

    See more and more of that crap, no morality.

    Special place in hell for scum like that

    We had to take the donation jar for the Humane Society out of the lobby in our veterinary clinic because we caught people stealing money from it.

    Having no shame to gain a couple dollars. . .

    The Salvation Army is a horrible institution, but what the thief did is even worse. Sad.

    #7 1 year ago

    I wouldn’t wish crack and heroin addiction on my worst enemy. Most people engaging in this kind of behavior are desperate. They would sell their own mother for a bag of dope.

    Why is the Salvation Army horrible?They help many many people.

    Everything that I have seen on them is that they will help you regardless of your orientation. Do some of you even do your research before you attack a group, or are you just tools of the media?

    They have probably helped millions, and some of you think they are evil because they believe marriage is between a man and a woman? Geez, you need to do a little reading about history. Do you even know what evil is?

    Judge an organization by its actions. The Salvation Army is a worthy charity. The people associated with them have probably done more for mankind than most any of us.

    It's not a charity, it is a church that does charitable things, and it is led by hateful, backwards thinking weirdos that believe in fairy tales.

    Instead of arbitrarily slinging crap at a charity, would you mind providing some insight as to why they are a horrible institution? Some of us donate to charities and really care about where that money goes and how it is spent. The Salvation Army consistently ranks among the highest rated charities in the US, so if there is something I'm missing, I'd appreciate knowing before I donate.

    Exactly. Read up on how other charities use donations for profit and/or high executive costs. No group when dealing with people is going to be perfect. To stereotype a complete organization based on some opinions you have is disgraceful imo. People are out there dedicated their time, resources, and more to help people. What are you guys doing? Slinging crap on the internet is what I see.

    I agree 110%
    They are despicable as an organization and in every way. I have worked with them... Never ever again. I have volunteered for them, MANY MANY years ago... Never ever again. In both cases they treated everyone like garbage. Also how they treat anyone who doesn't fit into their mold... Horrible.

    As for the thief, may they be anally sodomized in hell for a millennia.

    I assume that by definition, “hateful, backwards thinking weirdos” applies to everyone who does not believe the same as you.

    I am not sure who is coming across as hateful here. I have no problem with organizations that promote things I do not believe. The U.S. is wonderful in that many people get to express their voices. I am most worried about hardcore individuals and groups that believe only their voice is worthy and all others must be shouted down.

    I'm not going to get into a debate on here about a topic that is specifically banned from discussion. Whatever you are trying to bait me into isn't going to work, unfortunately for you I am smarter than that.

    We are both probably happier ending it here. Debates on the Internet go nowhere and leave everybody walking away angry. Have a merry Christmas

    Salvation at last

    OMG, somebody better tell Tim at the Pinball Hall of Fame, which is universally loved and adored by all Pinsiders, about the charity of his choice for donations.

    In before the Lock!

    #27 1 year ago

    For me the Salvation Army is just a place a block away I can dump all my old clothes, and maybe they'll be repurposed to help someone in some way or another.

    Yes, looking into their politics it's pretty apparent they are atrocious but that's life, hopefully they'll change their ways someday soon.

    As far as the Kettle thief, hey he probably needed the money. It's a charity, right?

    #28 1 year ago

    WTH is wrong with people. If there is a hell, there is a special seat for these A-holes!

    I'm pretty sure Tim stopped donating to the salvation army years ago when he had a issue with his they distribute the donations.
    He started donating to other causes.

    Ah, I did not hear that. My apologies. I know when I was paying more attention, he was donating to the Salvation Army, and he would post a yearly tally of donations made.

    The SA looks at it this way, the individual that took the money was very desperate and most likely needed it. (For what who knows. We can only hope it wasnt drugs or alcohol.) they will forgive them.

    Some one stated that Tim changed his charity. As the money he was sending to the local SA was not being used in the local area, but was being sent to the SA Headquarters. Something with the SA donation system changed a few years ago.

    I prefer Goodwill. Especially the one down the street that recently uncovered a sign on the adjoining market I haven't seen in 50 years.

    When you are cleaning out a parents house with 60 years of crap and every closet packed with clothes, you tend to not care how much the boss makes.

    And they hire the handicapped, because they can legally pay them $3 an hour.

    #41 1 year ago

    I do. Take all my stuff to the Vietnam vet thrift store.

    Quoted from ViriiGuy:

    Yeah. Saw a 60minutes episode on that. They hire special needs people and treat/pay them like shit.

    #43 1 year ago

    Shit happens.

    #44 1 year ago

    I don't watch 60 minutes. But when a place close by says I can drop unwanted shit behind their place, I am thankful for that.

    When ever I see a red kettle and bell ringer. I always throw a dollar or two in.

    If you are ever stuck out of town. They will buy you a bus ticket home.

    LTG : )

    #46 1 year ago

    That bell ringer out front of Stater Brothers is annoying as heck. I want to take that bell and ram it up his snout sometimes.

    I saw a hood rat dressed in gang garb ringing a bell for them once. As I walked by. I asked him how that community service was working out for him. I was fortunate looks can't kill.

    Same here, I'll even go out the entrance farther away from my car to do so it need be. If nothing else I figure the person donating their time to ring the bell deserves to have that time actually help someone out.
