    Unless they move SNL, he isn't going anywhere. Dude was just guaranteed a re-occurring role for at least 4 years. With a studio option to extend it for 4 more.

    Hopefully he already bought his house in Spain like most of the other elites.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    So many celebs I'm sure are going to keep their promise and start planning their relocation to another country today. We will probably see a noticeable slow down in movies/tv/music over the next few months as they set up new studios.

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Yes, they fair and square paid 5.2%. The rest was for "internal" charity work, like Chelsea's yearly labors that were worth $800k to the world community in Paris, Hong Kong, Cannes, Tokyo, etc.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    I'm guessing the first things Ruth Bader Ginsburg did this morning was tear up the DNR she gave to her caregivers, and then went to the gym.

    and how does that make it any different from the 95% of private foundations established by the wealthy?

    It probably doesn't. They are ALL a joke. Seriously. I'm not sure how you can take a "charitable organization" seriously that uses 5-6% of their income for actual charitable work. Their should be a higher standard. 5-6%? That's Marie Antoinette telling the poor to eat cake.

    Krugman tried to warn voters...

    Paul Krugman: Trump will bring global recession

    The economic fallout of a Donald Trump presidency will probably be severe and widespread enough to plunge the world into recession, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman warned in a New York Times opinion piece published early Wednesday.


    Calling Trump the "mother of all adverse effects," the Nobel Prize-winning economist predicted that the GOP nominee's administration could quickly undo the progress that the markets around the world have made in the eight years since the financial crisis.

    "Under any circumstances, putting an irresponsible, ignorant man who takes his advice from all the wrong people in charge of the nation with the world's most important economy would be very bad news," he wrote. "What makes it especially bad right now, however, is the fundamentally fragile state much of the world is still in."


    Krugman's pessimistic view comes in the wake of a more than 800-point plunge in U.S. stock futures that coincided with Trump's increasingly strong showing in the polls. Trump has repeatedly attacked the Federal Reserve, accusing Chairwoman Janet Yellen of keeping interest rates low in a bid to help the economy and get Hillary Clinton elected.

    So then what does it mean that the Dow closed up 256 points today?

    Edit: Nevermind. I see this was discussed in one of the other two threads.

    Yes, and those 95% are also getting their donations from trading favors with the political connections of its principals.

    How did the Clintons develop wealth in the hundreds of millions of dollars after supposedly leaving office essentially penniless?

    I guess no one's making the argument anymore about all that internal charity work being done by the Clinton Foundation.

    People act like these speaking fees are outrageous.

    At his height Lance Armstrong was charging 250k and doing 10-12 speaking gigs a year. I believe his net worth was close to 150mm.

    I believe Sarah Palin charges 100k.

    They left the WH almost 20 years ago, is it really that surprising they are worth a couple hundred million dollars?

    Speaking fees/talks to Wall Street the most over exaggerated thing ever.

    Yeah, if Obama is smart he would shut this sh*t down before Trump and the republicans take over...

    President Obama Should Shut Down the NSA’s Mass Spying Before It’s Too Late

    Modern surveillance programs would be a disaster under President Trump

    President Obama has just 71 days until Donald Trump is inaugurated as our next commander-in-chief. That means he has a matter of weeks to do one thing that could help prevent the United States from veering into fascism: declassifying and dismantling as much of the federal government’s unaccountable, secretive, mass surveillance state as he can — before Trump is the one running it.

    During the Obama administration, warrantless spying programs have vastly expanded, giving the government more power than ever before to constantly monitor all of us by collecting our emails, texts, phone records, chats, real-time locations, purchases, and other private information en masse. This indiscriminate spying isn’t just happening in some National Security Agency bunker. It has reportedly spread throughout dozens of agencies, from local police departments to the Drug Enforcement Administration, Internal Revenue Service, and more.

    Trump has repeatedly called for more government surveillance. And he has made it very clear exactly how he would use such powers: to target Muslims, immigrant families, marginalized communities, political dissidents, and journalists.
