HSUS Swindles the Public -- and Now with More eBay Action!

A note used by Vick during his apology is up for auction to benefit HSUS at eBay.
77 bids as of my first hit on the page, current bid is $10,100.00.

According to a NYTimes article which I haven't yet read, it was indicated that the proceeds would be put in a restricted account dedicated to the prevention of dogfighting. Very funny! HSUS has been strongly criticized for taking high profile events and turning them into cash cows and channeling the money wherever they wanted to like eliminating genetic diversity programs, and interfering with local legislation with various types of strongarming, misleading statistics and profiling. Many other animal disasters, such as those involving starving cattle or poisoned camelids get little attention from HSUS because HSUS remains primarily focused on high profile events which can be used to milk funds from the public.

Realize that when HSUS does things to "benefit animals", publishing and distributing biased "educational" handouts, holding training seminars for people handling animal concerns and other such matters -- they CHARGE for all of that, and go on bragging about on how much they do to benefit the animal community. It is totally money grab.

In the world of scams, swindling, confidence, con man games - this type of behavior is a crime. HSUS/ Wayne Pacelle shows you an idea and your send money in good faith. In the meantime the confidence man organization has now many officials with six figure incomes and uses your money to seed more income.

Look at how much they have and how much potential cash that they _could_ voluntarily put aside for the animals needing help. Instead, as clearly shown in their financial report, they are using their funds for power, political drives, raising MORE MONEY.

And here we go with a little eBay sale to help the HSUS and supposedly the funds this time... are going to be slotted for one deliberately vague agenda.

How in the world did funds end up going to the various multi-MILLION campaigns/categories listed below.

Did you check some box for those when you sent in a donation?

Below is a link to HSUS' annual report for 2006.

HSUS and their propaganda work behind many amendments flooding states local municipalities and states.

Don't be Scammed

Mystery emailJust about everyone with an email address gets spam and just about anyone with an email address who also offers things for sale online is targetted by scammers at some point. Surprise!

Scammer!Money!If you have anything for sale online, be it a boat, a computer, an exotic kitten or an alpaca, sooner or later you'll probably get a somewhat vague message that doesn't specify much about your item but indicates that someone acting as an agent wants to buy your item for a client -- and a cash advance (actually fake money) is being offered and they'd like for you to make change (with your real money) and send that substantial bit of real money to them. Some people with several items for sale get the same message for each item. B)

Of course, absolutely none of us are going to fall for that. :) Of course, of course!

An entertaining site along those lines is BustedupCowgirl's scampage.

As you can see, every once in a while I just need an excuse to play with some clipart.
