Always worth remembering that once you cut through the likes of John Sopel saying that Trump is a New Yorker, most New Yorkers still think he's a cunt.

So it turns that not only in this police free zone a black teenager was shot dead but the people behind that zone are defending it.



Here is some background on this situation.

Satire's carcass is already cold in the ground, but just as a follow up...

In sign of the times, Ayn Rand Institute approved for PPP loan
The institute promoting the “laissez-faire capitalism” of writer Ayn Rand, who in the novels “Atlas Shrugged” and “The Fountainhead” introduced her philosophy of “objectivism” to millions of readers, was approved for a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan of up to $1 million, according to data released Monday by the Trump administration.

The Ayn Rand Institute: The Center for the Advancement of Objectivism in Santa Ana, California, sought to preserve 35 jobs with the PPP funding, according to the data.
The institute referred Reuters to a May 15 article, in which board member Harry Binswanger and senior fellow Onkar Ghate wrote that the organization would take any relief money offered from the CARES Act. “We will take it unapologetically, because the principle here is: justice,” they wrote, adding that “the government has no wealth of its own…. It can only redistribute the wealth of others.”
Sounds to me like the Ayn Rand Institute have become sudden converts to Social Democracy!

They should have considered how they would pay for them before having so many 'jobs'.
