    Anyone who steals from an organization who helps others is the lowest, lowest of life on the earth. May he get exactly what he deserves and more!

    Granted, $125k a year sounds like a lot, but for a national CEO of such a large organization, even one that survives of charity, it really isn't that much.

    Forget even about the CEO level, there are plenty of computer programmers and business managers living over in Cary/Apex who are under 40 yeard old and make over $125,000 a year.....and they don't have to worry about running a nationwide company.

    If they've got the talent to hold a job that makes so much money, then I say more power to them. Besides, most of the donations to charitable organizations in the US come from the highest wage earners, so it's all good.

    " Not to support the 5 star community rating of the life styles of the rich and famous like these people are."

    "but as long as they live the lavish life style"

    Lavish life style on $125K? I agree that it's more than most of us make, but I wouldn't exactly call it an exorbitant salary to run businesses as big as those.

    cut off from previous post:

    From everything the actual website states... most (NOT ALL) BUT MOST of the employees for the SALVATION ARMY and other charitable organizations are VOLUNTEERS who get PAID NOTHING..ZIP ZILTCH.. SQAUT.. they dont get a dime.. not even lunch from the CEO's who run the Salvation army because .. OOPS they just spent it .. not on anything that will help their community but a new house w/ 5 car garage ..


    there is still homeless in Durham and Raleigh and across the UNITED STATES.. but as long as they live the lavish life style .. hey all is good. oh.. and since your here in this too why dont you pay for blankets and food for the 75 homeless people who wont get fed because funding was short ..

    I would rather be on my high horse then the drugs you are using.

    These CEO'S are begging and pleading with people all over the country for money to help the homeless and people who have been put out by accidents. Not to support the 5 star community rating of the life styles of the rich and famous like these people are.

    When the Salvation Armys people are standing in front of me ringing that annoying bell with their hands out asking for spare money.. DO YOU THINK they are standing there saying SPARE ANY CHANGE.. MY CEO NEEDS A HOT TUB IN HIS HOUSE. NO THEY ARE NOT!!! they are saying.. SPARE ANY CHANGE.. a homeless boy in durham needs shoes.

    Now the CEO of any company other then charitable organizations actually WORK for the money and dont have to beg.Those companys that sell stuff or do actual work so that those CEOs can have a jet and 4 houses over charge on items they make and sell so they can live this life style.

    From everything the actual website

    GGBFS, get off your high horse.

    The CEOs of these organizations make significantly less than the CEOs of many many other companies. That who their peers are. Also, they are being paid to do a job, run their organization. Are they doing their job? If the answer is yes, then why shoudn't they be paid per their salary agreement?
    (Assuming you don't currently work at a charity organization) if you were to do the same job that you do now for a charity organization, should they just pay you less because they are a charity? That's ridiculous.

    The value of the computer may be higher due to installed software like Office, the time to replicate the data, etc.

    It is nice to see the GOP's war on charity continues in this thread.

    "It's pretty stupid to blame the victim"

    I wasn't blaming the victim. I was thinking more along the lines that an organization that collects money for the poor would want to economize a little bit. Unless this was their server (and it seems doubtful he just walked out with that) then they should be getting by with something a little cheaper.
