Is Shriners Hospitals for Children an example of evil socialism because it provides healthcare for people who can't afford it?

The evolution of Shriners Hospitals for Children in North America.

Abstract

Shriners Hospitals for Children have been providing totally free care to children with neuromusculoskeletal disabilities since 1922. This mission expanded in 1962 to include the care of children with burn injuries and expanded in 1978 to include children with spinal cord injuries. Today, Shriners Hospitals for Children include 19 hospitals that provide pediatric orthopaedic care, four hospitals that provide acute and reconstructive burn care, and three hospitals in which spinal cord injury rehabilitation centers are located. During the past 20 years, case acuity and complexity have increased, comprehensiveness of care has been emphasized, members of the medical staff have increasingly become full-time, and sponsored intramural research has increased to a budget of $22 million annually. Annually, more than 250 orthopaedic residents receive pediatric orthopaedic training and more than 150 surgical residents are trained in pediatric burn care in Shriners Hospitals. In 1998, approximately 25,000 children were admitted for care, more than 22,000 operations were performed, and 236,000 children were treated as outpatients. In 1999, the annual operating budget for Shriners Hospitals for Children was $397 million.

They're what's known as a charity.

I am not sure if people pushing for socialism really know what it means. Socialism is the total control of production or means of production and distribution of those products by a community (government).  Charitable Organizations like the Shriners raise money(donations from private citizens) to be able to offer their services. These donations came from people all over the world even those evil rich people that the socialists like to malign all the time. When government offers free stuff they dont ask for donations they compel payment from the citizens( taxes). One is charity( donations) the other is forced compliance( taxes).

Don't fall for the bullshit.  "Taxing Wall Street" = "taxing the shit out of companies who will in turn cut jobs, quit hiring, raise prices, move certain operations overseas, etc."  They're not going to just pay an additional tax and eat the loss in the name of altruism.  If you have a 401K, you DO NOT want these things to happen, especially if you're over 50.
