Well, here’s why:
She drew the big names — but didn’t dole out the big bucks.
The celebrity-backed charity launched by departing Daily Beast editrix Tina Brown failed to meet the company’s goals in its first year out of the gate — handing out just $10,000 in grant money in 2011 despite raising nearly $1.2 million, IRS records show.
The nonprofit Women in the World Foundation kicked off to much fanfare in 2011 with a star-studded Manhattan party that cost $168,048 and was hosted by Meryl Streep…
…Total expenses, including the launch party, came to $536,868 for the period.
Of course, they are now claiming they are giving out bags of money – in 2012 about $1.1 million out of $2.6 million raised. Given that I’m a knuckle-dragging, Bible-clinging, teabagging bastard, my math might not be so good…but that, I believe, works out to less than 50%.
Now you might ask, what has something like this got to do with anything? Well, because this kind of self-dealing by the Ruling Class is what happens all the time. They are always giving themselves bags of money and congratulating themselves on being so wonderful – and ensuring that they have fabulous parties along the way. Do you think that Hillary is going to get a “Liberty Medal” because she’s done anything significant? Nope. She’s going to get it because she’s Hillary; and they can have a swank party to celebrate it – all at taxpayer expense either in the form of direct taxpayer money, or because the money being spent on it is tax deductible.
Just get in to that Ruling Class and do as you’re told and all door are open. You’ll have wealth. You’ll get awards. You’ll be ensured a well-paid sinecure either in corporate or government America (which are becoming increasingly interchangeable). Doesn’t matter if you’re a complete idiot or unrepentantly morally corrupt (though you can run afoul of things some times – as the former Mayor of San Diego found out…but even that took decades of misbehavior before someone decided to call him on it…he was one of them; he did as he was told…he had to be protected lest the unwashed masses find out). Got no talent? Can’t tell sh** from shinola? Doesn’t matter. Just get the right credentials, mouth the right liberal phrases and do as you’re told – you’ll be taken care of.
Leeches like Brown are living off the wealth produced by others – and they are legion in our nation. Our whole country is infested with these folks – and they are destroying us because being mindless pinheads in service of a anti-human, leftist ideology they advance causes which destroy the very sources of wealth they latch on to. You see them everywhere – they are in political office, they are running our largest corporations, they man the bureaucracy (especially at its highest levels), they are 90% of the MSM, they run most of the non-religious non-profits. If you ever say “they are ruining things” then here’s your “they”. Think of Tina brown blowing through half a million dollars as part of a “charity”. That is the Ruling Class.
I bring this up because we must get unconfused about this – we are fighting a whole class of people, which includes at least half of the GOP leadership. These people are either too stupid to know what they’re doing (I’d guess about 70% of them fall in to the “too stupid” category), while the rest know full well what they are doing and think its a good thing…after all, we Bible-clinging morons simply don’t know what’s best for ourselves. We need a Ruling Class to ride herd on us, you see? The stupid just want to keep living well, the rest believe that if they can finally, absolutely destroy the United States (fundamentally transform it, as it were) then they will have done a service to the world. They will have got rid of a Christo-fascist, racist, sexist, homophobic entity which is destroying the world.
For us to survive as a people, all of the Ruling Class ultimately has to go – we can’t think in terms of just winning one election or hoping that a Republican gets in, even if that particular Republican is a a true-blue conservative. We need a revolution – someone who will go to DC like Andrew Jackson in the 1830’s to clean out the whole mess…get rid of these people. They are not only unfit for government and corporations, they are unfit for decent company. Fire them. Send them packing. Take away their taxpayer funds and tax deductible “charities” which are merely vehicles for their swank lifestyle. Walk through the bureaucracy and fire everyone who has in even the least instance misused taxpayer money, or abused their authority. Hammer the big corporations – break them in to little, bitty pieces so that a free market can emerge once there’s no longer corporate money-bags suppressing competition via government regulation. Unless we think in terms like that, we’ll just be fighting with particular tentacles of the nasty beast rather than driving a stake through it’s vile heart.
Rant over. But I’m serious – we’ve got to kill the whole, nasty dragon…not just bits and pieces of it.
