The path to Hell is paved with good intentions ...
In this particular case it seems to be paved with tax dollars, or greed for them.
I used to give 100% of United Way donations to the Salvation Army, and always donated $20 or so each time I passed the "kettle". Even though I am agnostic, I supported their approach and their requiring results as the price of their help.
No more. Any charity picking my pocket via taxes is not a charity, IMHO. I'll find one who asks for donations in lieu of theft. I hope more people indicate their displeasure with this PC and tax-funds-greedy approach.

Major Jones can be contacted by email at John_Jones@uss.salvationarmy.org. STAND UP AND BE COUNTED!
"Designating" United Way contributions doesn't work - all they do is reduce the amount that agency would get from undesignated contributions by the amount of your designated contribution - they're sneaky bustards (no offense to the FReeper with that name).
