    Eye opening video on the charity industry.   They are wallowing hundreds of billions of dollars in Canada alone.    About 22% of total government (federal and provincial)
    expenditures are on charities, or $184 billion per year and rising.   Accounting for private contributions explodes this number to $280 billion.     And it is a fact that
    charities have enormous overhead costs so only a fraction of the $280 billion goes to the supposed targets.

    This video is sponsored by certain political elements itself, ignore the BS about climate change at the end.   The points it is making are valid when it comes to the
    nonsense of offloading government function on to private outfits with their own agendas that do not conform to voter choice.

    There was a documentary on the Aussie Sky channel a short while back and Aussies are struggling, because just before Covid-19 they had massive bushfires, so many of them don't have houses or jobs or savings, and all the local charities with tens of millions of dollars donated to help with the drought which they had before the bushfires and the bushfires, are not distributing the money... they are hanging on to the money till later.... whatever the hell that means... I suspect they just like having healthy looking bank balances... dirty bastards...

    Most did not respond to questions from the documentary reporters...

    I am very selective as to what I donate to these days...
