Skip to comments.Nonprofit Bailout included in Stimulus Package

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.
The parasites have killed the host.
The industrial individuals can no longer carry this weight.
Well, the American electorate must want this....they voted in the most liberal prez & Congress - ever.
It’s amazing what Bush ushered in with his bailout. I was so wrong on that one.
I lost a button on my shirt the other day. Can I get a bailout. I have suffered...
I’ll be honest, we are being fleeced right now, but there are good organizations out there too. I don’t want folks to stop giving. I would like them to be a lot more discerning.
Obama is pretty smart,...it will happen slowly is what I expect.
It would be funny if a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting for smaller government applied for a government bailout.
One of the more egregious line items is the $1 billion allocation for community development block grants (CDBG).
Dont forget that line item on home loans that will go to ACORN ...
The taxpayers are going to have to become just as organized as the left in providing critical oversight to the distribution and expensing of these grants...
Some of the best charities may never see a penny from the government. We shouldn’t stop giving to them. It’s sad that we’re forced to fund some of the groups that are destroying our country while we must sacrifice to fund those who will better it. But we shouldn”t stop doing the latter because of the former
ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and every organization we detest.
What does the FEC say about this?
Push the fight to the supreme court. Then again, they wouldn’t even make Obama show his birth certificate (he didn’t, there would be no case if he did).
What Supreme Court? We’ve got Curly, Larry, and Moe over there with their friends Grocho, Harpo...
Rush, Hannity and a LOT more people need this information!
Ill be honest, we are being fleeced right now, but there are good organizations out there too. I dont want folks to stop giving. I would like them to be a lot more discerning.
MY new criteria for charitable giving is very simple. I only give to charities that support struggling Republicans. If a charity gives any money to democrats, I just don’t give.
It is time to recognize that the GOVERNMENT is an Enemy of the People!
As it applies to politics, I would urge folks to donate directly to people they know and support. I would not give one cent to the Republican party these days. They’ll simply use it to support RINOs and block the advance of Conservatives you and I approve of.
People who work for the bureaucratic, unproductive non-profit organizations are almost always Democrats. Gotta feed the base.
Salvation Army. Southern Baptist Relief Fund.
They don’t waste the money.
I have just contacted my Congressmen regarding this horribly biased (and ultimately wasteful) spending.
Let me see if I can get some of that money, and I’ll let you know...
Don’t hold your breath.
government is out of control.
If this is true and comes to pass, it will indeed be time to revolt and take back our government.
We’re totally screwed....
How I wish Sarah were President.....
A charity is not the same as a non-profit, necessarily. The orgs being aided with this bailout have political agendas. In fact, they are based on "free money," foundation grants, government grants, etc.
Take, for example, the Social Public Art Resource Project (SPARC) here in L.A. They have painted murals all over SoCal, bursting with communist/socialist images, revisionist history of "oppression," etc. This is part of the brainwashing of the college students and the working poor. They are masters of accumulating grants from public and private sources. They are the "zapatistas" who threw rocks and bottles at police two years ago, while protesting in behalf of illegals. My guess is they are going to get a piece of this pie also.
