Poor NYC Chidren Donate To Air America

NEW YORK, NY -- Approximately 15,000 poor children, mostly from tough neighborhoods in the Bronx, decided that they should fund Air America Radio. Once they listened to the terrific liberal programming, they were filled with sheer delight and decided that they should immediately donate the millions of dollars in New York City contracts slated for the Gloria Wise Boys & Girls Club to Air America Radio instead. "They really speak to me as a person", said one child. "I like the jokes", said another. Click HERE for more details about this moving story.

When asked if they would miss the dozens of opportunities provided to them through the Boys & Girls Clubs, feelings among the children were generally mixed. The typical response sounded something like this, "Well, the recreation activities were cool, and the arts & crafts were great, and I guess the health care sevices were OK too, ...but Air America is just too important. They need the money more than I do".

It has been no secret that these kids have been donating their money to Air America. For nearly a month now, the Gloria Wise organization has been scrambling to find ways to continue providing programs for these wonderful kids who gave away the City contracts to Air America. Amazingly, the New York Times has failed to publish a single article about this outpouring of generosity to such a notably liberal institution like Air America. The NYT must be a far right-wing conservative rag to ignore such a noble gesture.

This sounds vaguely familiar.

Didn't a certain Teamsters Union Executive loan out Teamsters' Retirement funds, a few years ago?

I think it's wonderful to see that young down and out children know the need to sacrifice for freedom of choice when so many of us just take it for granted. It is really nice that these parents have taught thier children to give to charity. Bravo.
