    Now there's a guy who had no problem with dealing with America's enemies. He did have the foundation but look at where so much of that money went and what it supported.

    From his own memoirs...
    “For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

    Don't know much about him. Most of the Billionaires give to many common and good groups. They also give to their political alliances, so what? For fun I looked up the Koch brothers since they are the left's demon. They too give all over, many scholarships to both public and private schools.

    People need to grow up.

    RIP.

    I assume C. Obvious was acting like the liberals do when a conservative dies. I get it.................He was making a point and drawing people off-sides.
    It is amazing to me the Dems haven't and can't seem to figure out why Trump was elected. Why they lost the middle Blue Voters. Here is one big reason. The BIG TENT PARTY isn't so big anymore. Middle Blue Collar dems are not accepted because they don't agree with the left wing. They are attacked and ridiculed in today's Dem party. One is not allowed to disagree. The whole selling point of the Dem Party was the ability to differ. Not anymore.
