George Lucas to Donate Most of Disney's $4 Billion

Posted: November 1st, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
George Lucas to Donate Most of DisneySubmit Comment
About two years ago, forty US billionaires pledged to give at least half of their wealth to charity, either during their lifetimes or after death. The list includes Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Michael Bloomberg and George Lucas.

At the time, Lucas was worth about $3.5 billion and was the only person in Hollywood to make this pledge. Now that he has retired and sold Lucasfilm to Disney, his worth skyrocketed to over $4 billion. And it turns out he's already making plans to keep his word and donate most of it.

A spokesperson for Lucasfilm revealed that Lucas will put the majority of his wealth into a foundation which will primarily focus on educational issues. "George Lucas has expressed his intention to donate the majority of the proceeds [from Lucasfilm sale] to his philanthropic endeavors," said the spokesperson.

Over the years, Lucas has donated hundreds of millions of dollars to USC, Film Foundation, Stand Up To Cancer and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. But now, his focus is mostly on education. "I am dedicating the majority of my wealth to improving education," he said back in 2010. "It is the key to the survival of the human race."

I'm hoping for Romney, but most Americans, from the relatively young "gimme gimme gimme" narcissistic/hedonistic Generation Me'ers, and the "change my dirty diaper, daddy Obama, I just sh*t myself" elderly, will vote in droves for the Great Destroyer.

And blacks. They *always* vote for whoever promises the most 'free' sh*t.





Here's a lesson from history, btw:


Question: "During the 1936 campaign, Al Landon said, “no one shoots at Santa Claus.” What did he really mean by this?"

Answer: "That, even when a politician needs/requires a critique to improve (as part of good government) - when it focuses on only giving things away/preaching all good news, no one is likely to provide that essential critique. The New Deal elements were viewed by many as Santa Claus type giveaways, with FDR as the political beneficiary - with no consideration as to how they would be paid for..."

History, repeating itself....

I agree; only thing is are country is in such massive debt due to years of the gimmie mentality that a new deal isnt going to bail us out this time

You would think the news and people with half a brain cell would look at the way Greece chose to run their government and realize that isnt going to work in America but thanks to Hollywood and the liberal news media they have indoctrinated a generation of gimmie's

So yeah, other reasons not to vote for him other than not getting "free sh*t."

Yeah, I'm sorry, I forgot about a homo's right to f*ck another homo under the banner of marriage so they can get the heterosexual's tax breaks too, or so-called "women's rights", which means free contraception and abortion on someone elses dime, right?

Yeah, definitely NOT about getting free sh*t, right? because black people aren't actually against gay marriage more than whites or latinos, right?

Because ALL of the above sh*t is vastly more important than the 16, and quickly, trillion dollar dept, right?

Yeah, man, just make sure Adam and Steve can get a wedding cake right before they give each other a Cleveland steamer, and women can f*ck like poodles in heat and then have the resulting child's brains sucked out, all paid for by some guy who actually works for a living.

Go OBAMA!

And then the ever-corrupt government is entirely happy to oblige, in return for votes.

@Mink. Jesus, what a rant! Just because someone agrees with the democrat philosophy doesn’t mean they don’t know what they are talking about! The whole concept of everyone fend for themselves, republican merger with business tycoons has only been a feasible way of running a country based solely on the fact that America is (soon to be was) the biggest economy in the world with a decent plan for maintaining an oil supply.
The republicans put America into this mess and the democrats seem to spend their whole reigns cleaning up without having an opportunity to implement real change. Homo’s rights and whore abortions won’t ever be able to suck as much out of the economy as giving a tax break to the 1%, as those in the 1% have 95% of the nation’s collective wealth.
Under Romney the rich will get richer and the poor will get more ‘gimmie’ as all their jobs will be going to China and India because they’re a better investment.

"The republicans put America into this mess and the democrats seem to spend their whole reigns cleaning up without having an opportunity to implement real change."

Right. Which is why Obama has spent twice as much in four years as Bush in eight years, and more than every other President combined.

Right? Right??








"Under Romney the rich will get richer and the poor will get more ‘gimmie’ as all their jobs will be going to China and India because they’re a better investment."

You have no idea what you're even saying, do you? It's like a half-remembered dream some drunk hobo told you one night as he tried to squeegee your back window as you sped off.

Fact is, businesses moved overseas because of liberal, progressive policy, not greed.

Why pay a worker in the US a *minimum* seven dollars an hour when you can get the same job done for two in Bangladesh?

Why offer massive health benefits when you can give your worker none?

Why deal with mandatory overtime when you offer your Indian employee zero?

Why put up with mandatory breaks, time-off, vacations, et cetera, when you can get the same job with none of that hassle?

Fact is, Americans, by demanding a more leisurely life, and politicians more than willing to oblige for votes, sent jobs overseas because Americans, and their enabling whoremaster representatives, overpriced American workers out of the market.

Doesn't have sh*t to do with Romney and all that other drabble-dribble you regurgitated from MSNBC's op-ed column.






"Just because someone agrees with the democrat philosophy doesn’t mean they don’t know what they are talking about!"

A) Democrats don't have a philosophy, they have an ideology, and it's as old as the French Revolution.

B) No, but it's usually a damned good indication.

tick-tick-tick







"Homo’s rights and whore abortions won’t ever be able to suck as much out of the economy as giving a tax break to the 1%, as those in the 1% have 95% of the nation’s collective wealth."

Because giving homo's the right to breed with the aid of cutting-edge cloning techniques will really help us counter that time-bomb debt, China's military ascendancy and a job market that oscillates between FUBAR and Biblically apocalyptic, right?

Give 'em free pills and marriage licenses, Obama, all the other sh*t will work itself out!




"The whole concept of everyone fend for themselves"

Because that's the actual motto of every Republican from Lincoln to Romney, right?




"republican merger with business tycoons"

Even though most of the largest companies are run by very wealthy liberals that vote Democrat, right?

Do you get your political caricatures from the Monopoly board game, or re-runs of Richy Rich?




"has only been a feasible way of running a country based solely on the fact that America is (soon to be was) the biggest economy in the world with a decent plan for maintaining an oil supply."

I have no idea what the f*ck you're trying to say, but we've been the world's largest economy for a while, per capita anyway, and as for the rest, I just have no f*cking clue.

“Right. Which is why Obama has spent twice as much in four years as Bush in eight years, and more than every other President combined.”

Well, it’s kinda hard to fix a problem without spending money! If your car breaks down no one will fix it for free, just like no one will clean up Bush’s sh*t from America’s economy for free.

“You have no idea what you're even saying, do you? It's like a half-remembered dream some drunk hobo told you one night as he tried to squeegee your back window as you sped off.”

Slagging off the opposition without proving your comments are any more viable…….wow, you must be right!

“Fact is, businesses moved overseas because of liberal, progressive policy, not greed.”

Lol, I know neither of our opinions can be proven or really matter, but this is far too opinionated……even for this forum.

“Why pay a worker in the US a *minimum* seven dollars an hour when you can get the same job done for two in Bangladesh? Why offer massive health benefits when you can give your worker none? Why deal with mandatory overtime when you offer your Indian employee zero? Why put up with mandatory breaks, time-off, vacations, et cetera, when you can get the same job with none of that hassle?”

The fact that this is the basis of any argument means that you don’t understand how economics works in ANY other country than the U.S.! Outsourcing is a truly western phenomenon, and although lots of countries import from America, China has massive restrictions on how much can be spent in the U.S. and U.K. This allows them to buy-out America without boosting the U.S. economy. And why does America let this happen…….Dah, dah, dah…..Because Bush wanted short term gains, with long term loss. And now Obama has to spend sh*t loads to fix the problem (just like with the bank bailout).

“Fact is, Americans, by demanding a more leisurely life, and politicians more than willing to oblige for votes, sent jobs overseas because Americans, and their enabling whoremaster representatives, overpriced American workers out of the market.”

If the U.S. restricts outsourcing then Americans can have their cake and eat it no different than over the last fifty years. The only economy that has changed dramatically in this time is, of course, the U.S. mostly on a downward spiral, and who’s been in charge? The republicans for most of it! Every other economy has risen only as far as the corresponding U.S. decline.

“Doesn't have sh*t to do with Romney and all that other drabble-dribble you regurgitated from MSNBC's op-ed column.”

And yours isn’t just the reverse?


“Democrats don't have a philosophy, they have an ideology, and it's as old as the French Revolution.”

Democrat IS an ideology, they have a philosophy…..All I can say to this is, learn what words mean if you don’t know.

“Because giving homo's the right to breed with the aid of cutting-edge cloning techniques will really help us counter that time-bomb debt, China's military ascendancy and a job market that oscillates between FUBAR and Biblically apocalyptic, right?”

I didn’t think that this was very important to a discussion of economics either, but you brought it up.

“Because that's the actual motto of every Republican from Lincoln to Romney, right?”

Maybe not as early as Lincoln, but for most of the twentieth century….Yes.

“Even though most of the largest companies are run by very wealthy liberals that vote Democrat, right?”

No, ask Wall Street bankers……I’m sure you’re right……I’m sure they don’t vote republican.

“Do you get your political caricatures from the Monopoly board game, or re-runs of Richy Rich?”

Well when republican candidates make their sh*t intentions as pure as the driven snow, arguing against them feels as stupid as leading a redneck to water.

“I have no idea what the f*ck you're trying to say, but we've been the world's largest economy for a while, per capita anyway, and as for the rest, I just have no f*cking clue.”

Go shoot a black guy legally in ‘self-defence’ and watch him pay more for his recovery than he would anywhere else in the developed world. If small socialist programs were that bad then Americans would have a higher standard of living than Europe……Which they don’t.
