Here is the story. The Pope is not too happy with all this greed . Top Donor and friend to Chris Christie and Rick Scott has threatned to withhold contribution money to help charities and children hospitals if the Pope doesn't shut his pie hole.
The top billioniare and Guru of Wall Street whose name is well known in the 1 percent crowd and big wig of Home Depot thinks he knows more than God or a man of the cloth I suppose.
Among those quoted in the report is Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone, who the Times characterized as Christie’s “most devoted fund-raiser and loudest cheerleader” and who said that Christie’s politically motivated bridge closures were “beyond the pale” and “upset the hell” out of him.Paul Krugman link
One thing the Times report didn’t mention? Langone’s status as Pope Francis bully.
If anyone wonders whether Pope Francis has irritated wealthy conservatives with his courage and idealism, the latest outburst from Kenneth Langone left little doubt.link
Sounding both aggressive and whiny, the billionaire investor warned that he and his overprivileged friends might withhold their millions from church and charity unless the pontiff stops preaching against the excesses and cruelty of unleashed capitalism.
As a leader of the New York Stock Exchange, he was largely responsible for the scandalous overpayment of his friend Richard Grasso, the exchange president who received nearly $190 million in deferred compensation when he stepped down. Though New York’s highest court eventually upheld Grasso’s pay package, it was a perfect example of the unaccountable, self-serving greed of Wall Street’s elite.Birds of a feather and Goodfellas always hang together....Anyone see Scarface or the Godfather? Even they didn't bully the Pope.
Gov. Rick Scott will attend fundraisers in Naples today and Orlando, Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale on Saturday.
An Orlando event with Scott and Christie will raise money for Let’s Get To Work, the committee backing Scott’s 2014 re-election bid. The Sunshine State and Garden State execs will then raise money in Palm Beach for the RGA and the Republican Party of Florida. Scott and Christie will also attend a Fort Lauderdale event to raise money for RPOF.http://www.postonpolitics.com/...
Christie will hang around in Palm Beach County on Sunday, attending an “RGA event” in Palm Beach and then “private events.” The private events will include a powwow with more than 100 donors from around the U.S. to talk about a potential 2016 Christie presidential bid. The donor confab, described as a meet-and-greet rather than a fundraiser, is being organized by Home Depot co-founder and part-time Palm Beach County resident Kenneth Langone.
Let's get to work? Haaaaaaa Haaaa.. rolls right off the tongue doesn't it?
These guys... Everyone should be under some sort of racketeering investigation. As a person of faith, I am quite sure God is holding his own little book of deeds.
Lord I hope I don't end up with a Horsehead in my bed. I intend to post this video on every diary....
