  •  Regardless, the real issue (7+ / 0-)

    is not so much they are fundraising over guns.

    It's that they deny they are doing it.

    And that is clearly not true.

    This organization lied about their motivation for defunding Planned Parenthood, they have been caught in a lie, yet again. They are lying liars who lie.

    Does this not strike you as objectionable?

      I don't care. This is the biggest non-story of the new year.

      If you don't like what they are doing, donate to someone else. If you don't like who they take money from, donate to someone else. They are free to take and spend money where they want, and everyone else is free to either give them money or not.

      The only reason this is an issue is because it happens to include two hot button topics.

      It just doesn't matter at all.

        which is to inform people.

        True enough.

        But it's also important people understand Komen is not who they present themselves as before they part with their cash to them. Which is where information sharing part of blogging comes in.
