Left-of-center nonprofits are getting the bailout they wanted from the U.S. government, the Chronicle of Philanthropy reports. The news comes a month after Independent Sector president Diana Aviv demanded it.
Our lawmakers are intent on pissing away billions of dollars on utterly useless giveaways to their supporters in the liberal nonprofit establishment. The money will have virtually no positive impact on the economy, except perhaps that it might bolster employment at nonprofit groups.
One of the more egregious line items is the $1 billion allocation for community development block grants (CDBG). These are slush funds that liberal groups like La Raza and ACORN use to subsidize their operations.
God, I hate the Democrats soooo much....
They’re going to bail out the ACLU?
Once again,the money taken by threat of force from the productive will be given to their non-productive enemies.
Acorn is getting bailout money? Hey Boner-say “O my G-d” a couple more times before you vote for it anyway you slime.
It really is just as simple as that.
And it's going to get a hell of a lot worse very soon.
“One of the more egregious line items is the $1 billion allocation for community development block grants (CDBG).”
Don’t forget that line item on home loans that will go to ACORN ...
The Leftist movement has been taxpayer funded for a while, usually through third-hand grants and stuff.. wow, now they won’t even pretend
we really have become a third world country
Sooner we get to the end the sooner we can hang these seditious polidiots and presstitutes aka domestic enemies of the USA and go back to a constitutional republic. Sadly at this point I can foresee no less than the anarchy they seek as a solution for removing them from their positions of disruption and unconstitutional authority to fix one persons or groups bank accounts due bad fiscal decisions ........doom on em !
Just have to resist this administrations socialist agendas at every turn and survive if possible as we watch this slow motion train wreck play itself out .
Just my opinion of course.....
$400 per mortgage??
....and republicans too. Everyone in Washington including MSM(I like Cavuto) , but I bet a few months more with GWB gone and Rs opposing dems I will hate democrats more again, hopefully...
I need a bailout in the form of a stiff drink!
They prop up the nonprofits, because as ‘public private partnerships’ nonprofits are in fact acting as the government. You see, the government is only propping itself up.
I feel like the g’ment is porkin’ me. (without a condom)
So it’s bailout for non profits...all or just left wing?
I know - why am I even asking...
The Democrats have no concept of wealth-creation. They’ve convinced themselves that the mere spending of money builds an economy — even if its on wealth-sucking liberal do-gooder non-profits. It’s gonna be a long 8 years.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Quit donating private funds to charities. In a socialist society NO-ONE makes donations. The government takes care of everything and everybody. Hang on to your hard earned money!!!!
It won’t last 8 years. People are going to be tired of this crap real soon once it all sinks in.
