Nah, hate is absolute. If I hated you I would have burned down your house with you in it after nailing the doors shut.

Burnouts are fun to f-ck with.

Perhaps there is a god...


David Koch, billionaire conservative activist and philanthropist, dies at 79

He and his brother, Charles Koch, helped to build a massive conservative network of donors to support libertarian-leaning economic policies.


David Koch, the billionaire conservative activist and philanthropist, who was lauded by the right and rebuked by the left, has died.
He was 79.
“It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of my brother David," Charles Koch said in a statement Friday. "Anyone who worked with David surely experienced his giant personality and passion for life."
David Koch blamed deteriorating health when he stepped down last year from Koch Industries, a Kansas-based energy and chemical corporation with an annual revenue of about $110 billion. He graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a masters in chemical engineering.
Charles Koch, who also has engineering degrees from MIT, is the company's chairman and chief executive officer.
The two, along with their brothers, Frederick and Bill, inherited the business when their father, who founded it, died in 1967. Frederick and Bill sold their stake in 1983 and in 1998 pursued an unsuccessful lawsuit against David and Charles, claiming they were cheated out of more than $1 billion when they relinquished their shares. David and Bill were twins.

David Koch donated USD 100 million in 2007 to create a cancer research institute at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
He also gave millions to Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, the M D Anderson Cancer in Houston and other institutions. The Lincoln Center theater that houses the New York City Ballet became the David H. Koch Theater in 2008 after he gave USD 100 million.
The Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History opened a wing in his name dedicated to the story of human evolution after he contributed USD 15 million.

As of February 2017 [update] , Forbes magazine listed Soros as the 29th richest person in the world, [242] the world's richest hedge-fund manager, and 19th on its list of the 400 wealthiest Americans, [243] with a net worth estimated at $25.2 billion. [244] This was after Soros had lost almost $1 billion in the weeks after the election of Republican Donald Trump as U.S. president in 2016. [245]
Soros has been active as a philanthropist since the 1970s, when he began providing funds to help black students attend the University of Cape Town in apartheid South Africa, [106] and began funding dissident movements behind the Iron Curtain .
Soros's philanthropic funding includes efforts to promote non-violent democratization in the post-Soviet states . These efforts, mostly in Central and Eastern Europe, occur primarily through the Open Society Foundations (originally Open Society Institute or OSI) and national Soros Foundations, which sometimes go under other names (such as the Stefan Batory Foundation in Poland). As of 2003, PBS estimated that he had given away a total of $4 billion. [77] The OSI says it has spent about $500 million annually in recent years.
In 2003, former Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker wrote in the foreword of Soros's book The Alchemy of Finance:
George Soros has made his mark as an enormously successful speculator, wise enough to largely withdraw when still way ahead of the game. The bulk of his enormous winnings is now devoted to encouraging transitional and emerging nations to become "open societies", open not only in the sense of freedom of commerce but—more important—tolerant of new ideas and different modes of thinking and behavior. [246]
Time magazine in 2007 cited two specific projects—$100 million toward Internet infrastructure for regional Russian universities , and $50 million for the Millennium Promise to eradicate extreme poverty in Africa—noting that Soros had given $742 million to projects in the U.S., and given away a total of more than $7 billion. [247]
Other notable projects have included aid to scientists and universities throughout central and eastern Europe, help to civilians during the siege of Sarajevo , and Transparency International . Soros also pledged an endowment of €420 million to the Central European University (CEU). The Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus and his microfinance bank Grameen Bank received support from the OSI.[ citation needed ]
According to National Review Online [248] the Open Society Institute gave $20,000 in September 2002 to the Defense Committee of Lynne Stewart , the lawyer who has defended controversial, poor, and often unpopular defendants in court and was sentenced to 2
1 / 3
years in prison for "providing material support for a terrorist conspiracy" via a press conference for a client. An OSI spokeswoman said "it appeared to us at that time that there was a right-to-counsel issue worthy of our support" but claimed later requests for support were declined. [249]
In September 2006, Soros pledged $50 million to the Millennium Promise, led by economist Jeffrey Sachs to provide educational, agricultural, and medical aid to help villages in Africa enduring poverty. The New York Times termed this endeavor a "departure" for Soros whose philanthropic focus had been on fostering democracy and good government, but Soros noted that most poverty resulted from bad governance. [250]
Soros played a role in the peaceful transition from communism to democracy in Hungary (1984–89) [19] and provided a substantial endowment to Central European University in Budapest . [251] The Open Society Foundations has active programs in more than 60 countries around the world with total expenditures currently averaging approximately $600 million a year. [3] [252]
On October 17, 2017, it was announced that Soros had transferred $18 billion to the Open Society Foundations . [253]
In October 2018, Soros donated $2 million to the Wikimedia Foundation via the Wikimedia Endowment program. [254]

Yorkshire Ripper hoaxer Wearside Jack dies

20 August 2019
BBC News



The man who hoaxed detectives by claiming to be the Yorkshire Ripper has died, police have confirmed.

John Humble, who was dubbed Wearside Jack, sent police on a wild goose chase when he sent them hoax letters and an audio tape in the late 1970s.

He was unmasked and sentenced to eight years in jail in 2006 after admitting perverting the course of justice.

Northumbria Police said Humble, who had changed his name to John Samuel Anderson, died on 30 July.

West Yorkshire Police detectives, headed by the force's assistant chief constable George Oldfield, believed the letters and tape were genuine and diverted resources to Humble's home town of Sunderland.

When Humble was eventually prosecuted, Leeds Crown Court heard claims that delays caused by the hoax allowed Peter Sutcliffe to murder three more women.

Sutcliffe was jailed in 1981 and given 20 life sentences for killing 13 women and attempting to kill seven more.


Sutcliffe was jailed for life in 1981 for the murder of 13 women

Humble, 63, died at his home in South Shields, where he had lived since being released from prison in 2009.

A force spokesman said his death was not being treated as suspicious and would not be investigated.

Humble was arrested in 2005 after police matched his DNA, taken after a minor offence, against saliva on an envelope sent to Ripper squad detectives.

The former labourer later admitted writing two letters and recording the audio tape and sending them to police between 1 March 1978 and 30 June 1979.

He also sent a third letter to the Daily Mirror newspaper.

The letters sent by Humble had Sunderland postmarks

Humble was said to have had a fascination with the original Jack the Ripper, who terrorised the streets of east London in 1888.

A spokeswoman for South Tyneside coroners office said no inquest had been held into Humble's death, which was reported to the borough's registrar by a member of his family.

West Yorkshire Police declined to comment, but former Det Supt Bob Bridgestock, who was part of the Ripper squad, said lives "could have been saved" were it not for the hoax.

He said: "We don't know what Humble's reasons were for doing what he did.

"But he really frustrated, hindered and distracted the inquiry.

"After the tape there were another three women killed. Perhaps lives could have been saved if it hadn't been for him."

Sutcliffe, from Bradford, is currently serving life at Frankland Prison, in County Durham.

Death and destruction: this is David Koch's sad legacy


In 1992, billionaire industrialist David Koch was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer and given just a few years to live. Thanks to his enormous wealth, he was able to purchase the best treatment in the world, and he survived 27 more years until his death last week.
For all his adult life, he’d led Koch Industries, a diversified manufacturing conglomerate, with his older brother Charles. Now taking in around $110bn per year, the company creates chemicals and fertilizers; it produces synthetic materials such as Lycra; it sells lumber and churns out paper and glass products; it makes electronics components used in weapons systems. But first and foremost, Koch Industries mines and refines petroleum and operates pipelines to spread it throughout North America.
Koch Industries, a private company, is the United States’ 17th-largest producer of greenhouse gases and the 13th-biggest water polluter, according to research from the University of Massachusetts Amherst - ahead of oil giants Exxon Mobil, Occidental Petroleum and Phillips 66. The conglomerate has committed hundreds of environmental, workplace safety, labor and other violations. It allegedly stole oil from Indian reservations, won business in foreign countries with bribery, and one of its crumbling butane pipelines killed two teenagers, resulting in a nearly $300m wrongful death settlement. The dangerous methane leakage, carbon emissions, chemical spills and other environmental injustices enacted by Koch’s companies have imperiled the planet and allegedly brought cancer to many people. But it took Koch’s own struggle with the disease for him to care about cancer and fund research to combat it.
This is the tragic mindset of many a rightwing oligarch: The toils, the woes, the maladies of humankind are irrelevant — unless they happen to me, or perhaps my close family members. I’ve never struggled to live on $7.25 per hour, so why is it a problem? An ailment has never caused me to go bankrupt, so why would anyone possibly need government subsidies to pay for life-saving medical care? Climate change has never directly affected my life so I’ll keep on denying that humans have anything to do with it. Even though I inherited a business and a fortune, I earned every cent of my astronomical net worth. If you worked as hard as I have, you would have what I have, too.
Koch epitomized this grotesquely selfish mentality during his 1980 vice presidential campaign on the Libertarian ticket, when he ran on abolishing Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, welfare benefits, the minimum wage and the Environmental Protection Agency. He put $2m of his own money into the effort and campaigned to ax all campaign finance laws so he and his brother could maximize their bloated political influence without any pesky rules attempting to honor the constitutional premise of American elections: “one person, one vote.”
