How often does this need to happen

How often does this need to happen, before Americans finally get it into their minds that the American Red Cross is in the business of helping only themselves ('themselves' being the high-ranking-and-well-remunerated bureaucrats)? Good night! This happens *everytime* there is a big natural disaster in America -- the Mennonites or Salvation Army (as two examples) are there right away, helping; whereas the American Red Cross merely ramps up their never-ending, and clearly all-important, Donation Drive.

At the same time (h/t Bob Parks): Thanks, but no thanks -- "Utility crews from several states East of the Mississippi River hit the road this week to volunteer their time and talents in Northeastern states hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. But crews from Alabama got the shock of their lives when other workers in a coastal New Jersey town told them they couldn’t lend a hand without a union card.

Derrick Moore, who works for Decatur Utilities in Decatur, Ala., told WAFF-TV in Huntsville that crews in Seaside Heights, N.J. turned him and his crewmates away, saying they couldn’t do any work there because they’re not union employees.
" -- Notice that the response of the spokesman for 'Jersey Central Power & Light' doesn't actually address the issue.
