    I did. What’s your point? Protect doesn’t claim to make grants, and they don’t solicit funds for that purpose. They do one thing: lobby for laws to protect children from sexual, physical, and emotional abuse. Money donated to Protect goes to staff, who do the lobbying. Because of that lobbying:

    * Child-abuse victims in Virginia now have 20 years–instead of 2–to file civil cases against their abusers

    * The FBI now has $50 million–instead of $6 million–to investigate people trading child porn over the Internet

    * Abusers who rape their own children in Arkansas, California, Illinois, New York , North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia will no longer get probation for their crimes

    * Eliminated California law that freed 50,000 child abusers from prison while forcing their victims to attend “treatment” with them

    So … what have *you* done, Bubba? I mean, besides Casey Anthony lookalike contests?

    Please keep exposing these frauds for the fakes that the are. Protect.org is going to be exposed, keep up the pressure,

    Protect.org doesn’t collect money to make grants. They collect money to lobby for laws that protect children, and have had great success in that regard. Among their many successes are state laws that now mandate that that abusers who rape children no longer get probation. They get jail time. You aren’t against that, are you? You owe protect.org and your listeners an apology.

  4. Lou Bank

    Okay, “christian,” what about you? What the hell have you done? Who are you? I guess you can’t afford a last name if you can’t even afford a capital “C” for your first name….

    Other than having his own charity that helps the families of fallen officers and organizing bike rides to raise money for them, all the while taking NOTHING out of the fund for anyone on the show. Meaning no one gets paid from it.

    Other than that and having the best damn radio show in the world, I guess the only other thing he has done “Lou” is to f your mom, you dirty used douche bag.

    loubank your drinking way to much of that kool-aid

  7. Lou Bank

    Wow. So … you erase comments when your pathetic little fans don’t respond? Let’s try again: So what have *you* done, “christian”? Frauds? Fakes? You don’t even have the guts to use your real name. If you are going to take a stand, you can’t do it hiding behind a wall of anonymity, you coward. What’s your name? How is Protect a fraud? You ass….

  8. Dan in Jacksonville

    Ok, so the money goes to lobbyists? I felt better thinking they were just keeping it for personal use. What a way to help the kids. Pour more money into Washington…

  9. Oscar

    When i hear of (and i use this term loosely) “organizations” That in the end CLAIM to “help” those in need.
    This upsets me greatly! I highly doubt that protect.org
    ALL BY ITSELF made all the above stated accomplishments.
    I’m more then sure that others that had NO AFFILIATION with those CROOKS got the ball rolling! Without the help of protect.org. I mean how did they help? Did protect.org pay for the take out? …oh wait they would have had to file that!
    As for what bubba has done,well i can’t answer for the man. What i do see however,is him going out of his way to make sure the family of fallen heroes…I’m sorry REAL HEROES’ are taken care of. When times get hard. Every little bit helps! Oh and in case this jack ass that wrote the first comment)I’m looking at lou banks) on here is wondering what heroes bubba helps…It’s the same ones you call an asshole,because you got yourself a nifty 60 dollar fine for hauling ass in a school zone,because you thought that going 20 miles per hour was out right ludicrous! You are a naive man to just out right “copy and paste” the accomplishments that some scam site says they helped with!
    Before you are quick to cast the first stone,MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT ON EARTH YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT!

  10. Corey in Daytona

    @ Lou Bank: you twit! do your homework if you are so damn smart… call the show and get OWNED!

  11. Mike Santos

    wow, this lou bank guy probably on the payroll! or his just an idiot

  12. Jennifer

    Lol what a scam, those supposed accomplishments had nothing to do with these scammers.
    The returns show only part of the waste, check the houses and cars it has brought them.

  13. Charger Supanizzle

    Lou Bank youre such a fake , fraud and part time broad. look at item #24b of page 10 it states that they spent only $26,526 lobbying. thats barely 5% of the total donations. I doubt you could even get a stop sign installed for $26,526. they had nothing to do with passing those laws. Protect.org piggybacked on the backs of the legislators who were already working on those causes. besides how hard is it to get a politician to pass any one of those causes ? what legislator would come out against them. ” Im senator Jobber and i am against abuse victims having more time to sue their attackers!!” dont bust me up.

  14. tom johnson

    Well dooshbag….. i have one thing to say…BTLS FOUNDATION..
    AND YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO PAY PEOPLES SALARYS WITH DONATED MONEY…IN MANY PEOPLES EYES ….THATS NOT A CHARITY…DUMB ASS…SO BEFORE YOU EVEN THINK ABOUT SAYING BUBBA ONLY DOES RADIO BITS….THINK AGAIN. LOOK UP BTLS FOUNDATION , I HAVE AND ITS RAN THE WAY A TRUE CHARITY IS SUPPOSED TO BE RAN…LIKE BUBBA SAYS., IM NOT A SMART MAN…….BUT I NO A SCAM WHEN I SEE ONE…AND TO ORLANDO AND THE FUNKY BUNCH OR WHAT EVER THE HELL THAT DUMB ASS ZOO CREW CALL’S THERE SELVES.. THE ONLY PERSON WHO IS A RACISTS IS ORLANDO…WHY IS IT OK FOR ALMOST ANY BLACK PERSON TO CALL WHITE PEOPLE A CRACKER AND THATS OK…BUT IF BUBBA PLAYS DUMB ASS SOLUJA FAGS REAL ART…THEN HES A CRACKER RACISTS……..ORLANDO YOU WERE CAUGHT BACKING UP A FRAD…OWN IT BITCH….

  15. TIZZZOMMY JIZZZOHNSON

    HEY LOU….BUBBA HAS DONE THE BTLS FOUNDATION….KEEP IT UP BUBBA YOUR DOING A GREAT JOB ON THESE FRAUDS…AND IF YOU LOOK AT THAT TAX RETURN, IT IS SAD THAT PEOPLE REALLY DO TAKE A SALARY AND THEN CALL THERE SELF A CHARITY OR NON PROFIT..I ALWAYS THOUGHT IT MEANT YOUR DOING SOMETHING OUT OF THE GOODNESS OF YOUR HEART, NOT SAYING YOU CARE AND THEN MAKING A MONEY ON THE BACKSIDE….COME ON PEOPLE WAKE UP,,,STOP BEING SCUM BAGS…

  16. Lou Bank

    (1) I didn’t ask what Bubba’s *listeners* have done. I asked what *Bubba* has done. The money he’s granting out to families in need is donated by the listeners. So what has *he* done?

    (2) What he’s done is used tax-payer money to promote his show. If he wants listeners to send money to these families … why not just set up bank accounts for those people and let listeners contribute directly? I’ll tell you why: because then he couldn’t use BTLS as a front to promote his show. On his schedule O of the 2010 990, he lists fundraising expenses of $11,326. Wouldn’t that money be better used by the families of the fallen officers?

    (3) The $26,526 that Protect lists for lobbying is *expenses* relating to lobbying–not the salaries of the lobbyists. And if you think it’s easy to get politicians to vote for laws that protect children, explain this: http://protect.org/campaigns/current/1054-2010-04-25-22-37-36

    Lou Bank, wow you make some great points at least until you start attacking others for their comments. I don’t blame Christian I would not want your dumb ass looking up my name if I was a girl either. As you can tell most every comment here has referred to you. Take off *YOUR* blinders and listen to what these peopl are saying.

  18. Tina

    Lou Bank, Wow Bubba never donates any of his own money, that is completely false. Once again as others are saying if you don’t know what you are talking about just keep your mouth shut. Bubba has always been upfront about where the money from his foundation goes. As for the $11,326 for expenses he has said it is for fees that they had to pay for certain things. In most cases people donate their time and efforts, but there are times when he HAS to pay people for their time and efforts. I don’t always agree with everything Bubba says, but in this instance he is 100% correct. If Protect.org does not want to be called a fraud, then don’t be a fraud. Bubba you are doing a great job keep it up!

  19. Staff

    $11,326 Went to put on the three events we had over the year. http://www.wtsp.com/bubba/article/181454/332/Bikes-Badges-Bikinis-and-Bubba Just look at the turn out. 94% of our money raised by the Bubba Army is returned straight to the families in need. Lou I want you to tell me how much you have given back. I want you to tell me why 51% of the money Protect.org has raised went to salary! 51%!!!!! Not one person for BTLS Foundation took a single dollar for their salary. You cannot defend yourself in this fight, you don’t help people you just lobby to help people. Tell us what laws you helped pass? Tell us who you pay to get laws passed!

  20. Matt

    Yeah. Um. I think they might be legit Bubba. Paying lobbyists cost money. Their board of directors looks impressive too. Sorry guy.

  21. Matt

    Lou. Exactly what did you do to get the language in House Bill 1276 corrected?

  22. Larry Draskovich

    Lou bank, you are a total asshole who has no idea what he is talking about, only who is paying you. you made the comment about someone not using there whole name. not me asshole LOOK ME UP!

  23. Mike Freeman

    Lou, you asked what Bubba does. He dedicates personal time as well as radio time to the fallen men and women of law enforcement that have died to protect people like you and me. That in itself protects and helps those law enforcement officers’ children. I don’t know if or how much of his personal money is donated to his charity, but I do know this… If I were going to give some of my HARD EARNED MONEY, I damn sure wouldn’t give it to a bunch of lobbyists.

    Here’s a question for you Lou. Who are you? Who is Lou Bank? I can make up names all day long… Tell us who Lou Bank is and what he stands for besides a group of lobbyists…

  24. Dustin from Alturas

    Has anyone seen the actual meaning of charity? I have and it doesn’t day anything about paying lobbyist. 1 : benevolent goodwill toward or love of humanity 2 a : generosity and helpfulness especially toward the needy or suffering; also : aid given to those in need b : an institution engaged in relief of the poor c : public provision for the relief of the needy. Why should people have to be paid to pass laws that should be passed anyways? And as for Orlando, Bubba hates on white trash more than anybody so how is he racist?

  25. todd

    this is a very sick song , id do a background check on this writer of this song , he sounds like a child toucher, i hope orlando p.d. brings this sickie in for questioning sick bitch

  26. Bob James

    So…a charity that pays people to grease the palms of law makers to get laws passed? What am I missing here? You would think these lobbyists would donate their time to the cause, especially for children. Then the money donated could be put to better use. Bubba doesn’t do what he does for fallen officers families for publicity. He doesn’t need to do anything for publicity or ratings. He got far in radio without doing anything other than being Bubba and having the smarts to surround himself with good people.

  27. Bernie

    So…a charity who solicits donations to pay lobbyists to grease the palms of politicans to get laws passed that protect children? What am I missing here? Why wouldn’t these lobbyists donate their time? Then, the money being paid to the lobbysists could be better used. As far as Bubba goes, he doesn’t do what he does for fallen officiers’ families for publicity and ratings. He didn’t get as far as he did running charities. He got to where he is now being Bubba and surrounding himself with good people and not only good people but loyal people. Loyalty, what a concept!

  28. Lou B SUCKS!

    Everything you mention is great, and has been in place for while. But I need to ask……. What does this do for moms that kill there kids and then. Just saying! Protectyourselfformmom.org should be the cause.

  29. TOM JOHNSON BALTIMORE

  30. TOM JOHNSON BALTIMORE

    NO MATT, THEY ARE NOT LEGIT… COME ON BUDDY YOU CANT BE SERIOUS!LOOK UP THE MEANING OF CHARITY, IT DOES NOT MEAN TAKE $10.00 FROM SOMEONE AND ONLY USE $2.00 OF IT FOR YOUR SO CALLED CHARITY AND POCKET THE REST…JUST SAYING..A CHARITY IS WHAT BUBBA DOES..

  31. Chris

    Lou Bank, or whatever your real name is…if you want to take that stance of, “what has “Bubba” done,” then what have the lobbyists done? They’re using their “organization” to solicit tax payer money so they can go “lobby” for kids. If they were truly so high and mighty and cared so much about the kids, they wouldn’t need to steal all this money and would just try to get these supposed laws passed because its the right thing to do. But no, they can’t get free money that way, can they?

    You’re a tool. If you don’t like bubba, and you’re busy riding Cletus/Orlando/MJ’s d!cks, then why are you here? Obviously no one here gives two sh!ts what you have to say.

  32. FIREMAN

    LOU YOU AND MATT ARE TOOLS!

    LOBBYIST… WHAT A JOKE. SOMEONE WHO IS PAID TO COHERCE SOME FAT CAT LEGISLATOR INTO LINING HIS POCKETS AND SCREWING THE AMERICAN PUBLIC! ALL LOBBYIST SHOULD BE HANGED BY THE NECK AND LEFT TO ROT LIKE THE PIRATES THEY ARE

  33. Brandon

    @Lou Bank, the proof is in the numbers – as in Grants taken in vs Salaries paid out – and salaries is not $$ given to lobbyists (which is a different argument altogether – not sure how much $$ is required to ‘lobby’ politicians into passing common sense laws anyway). But explain this away Lou Bank – $489,031 in total revenue, and $319,291 paid in salaries. Numbers and facts don’t lie, buddy..

  34. Dave West Palm

    First of all, if you go back all the way to the beginning of this drama…Cletus said the charity did one thing and he was wrong. Secondly, if the whole point of the cheesy song was to raise money for a charity to protect kids, there’s alot better charities that are Florida based than to give the money to a shady lobbyist organization based in Tennessee. Cletus was wrong on several fronts–the song is pure cheese, he had no clue what protect.org was all about and Bubba exposed the truth. And that Caylee somehow came down from the heavens and helped him write the song..lol Keep it up Bubba!!!

  35. Voice Of Reason

    $489,031 in total revenue, and $319,291 paid in salaries. ‘Nuff said. That’s why they decliened the money…they are being EXPOSED!

  36. Plizzzease!

    Little Caylee came down from heaven to help his write this song someone else wrote last year?! http://youtu.be/cHH6Mq-g-r8
