Larry David got $5,000 for calling Trump a racist. I call him a racist for free.


Wall Street managers were paid an astounding $708 million in fiscal year 2015 to handle the city’s pension system — but did such a terrible job that taxpayers were forced to cough up $9.9 billion to make up for their shortfalls.

Most of those costs, moreover, were kept secret.


This week, Mr. Waters, a self-described conservative who has been retained by a group of people he declined to name, will arrive in Mississippi to pick up a difficult task: forming an unlikely and perhaps unmanageable alliance of preachers, business executives, state boosters and civil rights advocates to remove forever the Confederate battle flag from the state flag.

He is working with the Flag for All Mississippians Coalition, which was started by Sharon Brown, an activist in Jackson, who is black. The campaign has already been organizing supporters and held a hundreds-strong rally at the State Capitol. But Mr. Waters spoke of other tools that will be brought to bear outside the public eye, such as pressure on political donors and lobbying in the Legislature. New York Times

  1. And I hope Larry David will contribute that $5k to the Bernie Sanders (once again, another amusing portrayal of B by David on SNL last night–no, didn’t boycott, but only watched 1st 10 min., because I knew they’d have another spoof of the Dems) campaign. (of course, David IS a millionaire–if not a billionaire–so the money might not be accepted anyway). However, if the latter is the case, the Sanders Campaign would undoubtedly send it to a legitimate charity, as they did w/$2,700 that young, arrogant pharmaceutical co. owner (the one who raised the price of an AIDs drug something like 400%). I believe it was donated to an AIDs organization.
    All the more reason for David to pay it forward.
