Good news/kindness only (please) thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

I'm surprised the God haters haven't shot this full of holes. Great gesture. We need more people like this.

Not much interest otherwise, huh? If the libs can't stand up for queers, gun owners, bash religion and queer haters, or run the conservatives into the ground, not much else interests you, huh?

Stand up for "queers" (sic)- check
Bash religion- check
Bash homophobic trash- check
Run conservatives into the ground- check
What, exactly, was your point (if any) about gun owners?

Wow. Let's just hope this kind of thing doesn't lead to fake collections for good samaritans or even fake good samaritans. (I know, too cynical for my own thread but $100K!)

Nice!

Makes you wish you had the heart of a Conservative don't it.
No mention of even as much of a praise from Washington. Your cynicism is intact.

I wouldn't know. I don't believe everything the media spits out. Do you? If they aren't, I'm sure the donations didn't come from liberals.
They're waiting for someone to hand them their share.

What the Dairy Queen kid did was very kind, and certainly I applaud him.
Past that, isn't it sad that such an act is so unusual that he gets national attention and an invitation to Buffet's buffet? On the other hand, hopefully the national support and attention will help build an environment where more kindness, consideration, and honesty can grow.

Yeah, that's the thing a lot of cons don't get. Charitable work is rarely a matter of political ideology.

I read an article where the queen twat twinkie Ellen The Degenerate gave a waitress 10 grand for buying the meal of two female soldiers who were down on their luck and didn't have enough money for a decent meal. Hooray for the waitress, there's still good people who care.

Ellen The Degenerate? it's good she had the money although it was grandstanding to increase her show's ratings.
