It's worse than that. They use that foundation money to make "charitable donations" to NGOs that sue complicit federal agencies for regulations that put their upstart competition out of business. It is the essence of the operating structure of the "environmental protection" scam, the "worker safety" scam, the "public health" racket, the...
This is a war of old money versus the entrepreneurial class.
Yes the Great Society has ruined America. and it needs to end before it completes brings America down.There would be far less children born out of wedlock if women thought hey had to support the child themselves or that there was no free place to live etc....People who think otherwise have never had the pleasure of begin around those who are cared for by the government.

Rent subsidies, free health care, WIC, food stamps, welfare payments and other handouts are not counted. Nor is income received off the books. Nor are free meals at school, free day care and other free services provided.
People in poverty typically have a nice apartment, a nice car, new furniture, a huge screen TV, new clothes, internet, cable, cell phones and no father in the house taking care of the kids.
They have no responsibilities, lots of leisure time and you and I are paying for it.

Reparations, my friend, reparations.
JFK and LBJ share in the destruction, much of what got done after JFK’s death was the continuation of his leftist goals.
However, if there is one man who can take the most credit for the 1965 act, it is John F. Kennedy. Kennedy seems to have inherited the resentment his father Joseph felt as an outsider in Bostons WASP aristocracy. He voted against the McCarran-Walter Act of 1952, and supported various refugee acts throughout the 1950s. In 1958 he wrote a book, A Nation of Immigrants, which attacked the quota system as illogical and without purpose, and the book served as Kennedys blueprint for immigration reform after he became president in 1960. In the summer of 1963, Kennedy sent Congress a proposal calling for the elimination of the national origins quota system. He wanted immigrants admitted on the basis of family reunification and needed skills, without regard to national origin. After his assassination in November, his brother Robert took up the cause of immigration reform, calling it JFKs legacy. In the forward to a revised edition of A Nation of Immigrants, issued in 1964 to gain support for the new law, he wrote, I know of no cause which President Kennedy championed more warmly than the improvement of our immigration policies. Sold as a memorial to JFK, there was very little opposition to what became known as the Immigration Act of 1965.
I live out here in the Alaskan bush surrounded by Native people. The elders tell me that there was a moment when their culture started to change for the worse was the early 1970s, when they were suddenly swamped with food stamps, HUD housing, and other forms of Great Society welfare assistance. In fact, you can still see it here. Many folks born before the 1970s express some wonderful values and attitudes about hard work, family, commitment, and religious virtue. That changes dramatically for the people born later. The elders talk about it a lot out here. The only good news is that the Native tradition of subsistence hunting and fishing still lies outside the welfare state, so kids are still shown the value of hard work, family cohesion, and respect for elders, so when the whole edifice falls apart, they’ll have something to fall back on. I can’t express the same hope for the poor slobs in southcentral LA. God help us.
LBJ knew he was cementing loyalty of future generations to popular Democrat programs. The American people are always being tricked by leaders in both parties.
it is documented by several sources, it is real.
look online geez- this has been well known for years
The very rich and the very poor have the same life style.
Lyndon Bird must be laughing himself silly as he burns in hell!
New Twist On Old Proverb:
Give a man a fish and he eats for a day.
Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.
Give a man a welfare check, foodstamps, free condoms, free hypodermic needles, free cell phones, free rent and unlimited free abortions for his squeeze and he votes Democrat for a lifetime.
