It's For Charity [May. 4th, 2013|02:20 pm]
Tony Grist
Stuart Hall's son says he should keep his OBE because of his charity work.

Yes, says Ailz, but he used his charity work as a cover- just as Savile did. It made him look good and it gave him access to potential victims.

My father-in-law was a Mason. If you challenged him about Masonic skullduggery he'd say, "Yes, but the Masons do a lot for charity."

As Dr Johnson almost said- and might have said if he were around today, "Charity is the last refuge of a scoundrel."

Charity seems a new way of piracy.

The CEOs of the nonprofits have salaries of bankers

My dad 's. a pirate.

It's why he's afraid he's being ripped off
It's what he does to the folks he can

Now it's not just me seeing it
He can't keep doing it.

Yes, I'm getting to be increasing suspicious of charities.

What sorts of Masonic skullduggery? Around here, Freemasons seem to be remarkably, well, boringly normal people.

The Masons used to wield a great deal of influence behind the scenes. If you wanted to "get on" in business or the police or local government it was advisable to become a member. There was a lot of corruption. These days that power has dwindled and what's left (in these parts anyway) is a network of supper clubs for very old men.

There are also various showbiz types saying he should be respected because he owned up.

WTF?!
