I think we can all agree that being an American conservative means being a gullible idiot. The “movement” is a harmonious symbiosis between parasitic grifters and bloated, intellectually lazy hosts. That has been the state of things since Nixon decided to break the country in two in the hopes that the stupid, racist half would contain more electoral votes. But while the con men who run the conservative movement were once satisfied by collecting votes, and separating the doltish conservative masses from their political donations, they are increasingly fleecing the conservative dullards and racists of actual money.
So what, right? Why should I care if Glenn Beck
and Sean Hannity want to 1bankrupt a bunch of morons by selling them worthless gold certificates and freeze dried survival food?
Certainly, it is hard to feel sorry for these idiots – as the old adage says, “You can’t cheat an honest man.”
And yet, the monetary losses suffered by these gullible idiots are usually fungible across society. Take, for example, Trump University.
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York’s attorney general sued Donald Trump for $40 million Saturday, saying the real estate mogul helped run a phony “Trump University” that promised to make students rich but instead steered them into expensive and mostly useless seminars, and even failed to deliver promised apprenticeships.
Who is footing the bill to try and make these fools whole? ? Hard working liberal tax payers who had the good sense to avoid something as sketchy as Trump University – that’s who.
Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says many of the 5,000 students who paid up to $35,000 thought they would at least meet Trump but instead all they got was their picture taken in front of a life-size picture of “The Apprentice” TV star.
