Travel, lodging and related expenses will be paid to me as this is a direct out of pocket expense.

As a freeborn citizen of the United States I reserve the right to work for whoever I want and at this time there are a few organizations I will not support with one minute of my time. work for. At the top of the never acceptable list are the following:
  1. Planned Parenthood and the others who would have anything to do with the inhumane partial birth abortion, selling parts of a human or abortion in any form.
  2. The United Way or any other assemblage of acceptable and unconscionable organizations. Too many of these groups have some how made it a fight over management that for some reason thought 100 percent enrollment was their highest corporate goal and coerced by their forceful demands for 100 percent participation the weak into giving to organizations under this umbrella of morally objectionable entities. Refusal was not common because of the pressure of management. But there are always rebels like me who gave to their own charities from to 10 to 20 percent. It just seemed very suspicious for management to want this 100% participation (wasting my time and theirs and on a government charge number) if they were not getting some sort of kickback for it. Being a rebel and a NYC boy there was no way I will donate to any part of a thing I considered corrupting operating in an unconstitutional activity. Because of this lower management and I had a mutual dislike for each other. One even told me that if I didn’t have such a arsenal he would fire me. My weapons he referred to were my patents. They always trump a jackass manager.
  3. Community activists groups of an persuasion: leftist rightist, centerists, Neanderthals and the brother and sisters of Lucy. I think that covers some of the ones I will do no work for.
