The devil came to collect his dues.

Adelson was pretty much every negative stereotype about Jews rolled into one disgusting body.

Israel,and Netanyahu,will miss him. He brought home the bacon for them. In this country,nobody not a jew will give a crap. Even many Jews won't.

I certainly don't care. The man was a shill for Palestinian genocide and Israeli expansionist crimes.

Trump's bagman.

Word is he was an organ donor according to his driver's license and when the surgeon opened him up he was heard yelling "Is this some sort of f&*^ing joke?!?!?!?!"

Think his wife and descendants will hand out those fat stacks to GOP pols, like Shelley did? Think again. They will sell the casino company, take the cash and continue their lives as the idle rich. The MAGA-hat heads will add the Adelsons to their enemies list, because this guy died without sharing his loot wider...

Since all the republicans have fled this site out of embarassment, I'll provide their automatic response:

"Libs celebrating his death show how evil libs really are. Ignore all the suffering and damage he did to our country and be nice to his memory or else you're evil haters."

Well, that's 2...
just need the other Koch Bro to go...

Then there are something like
60 other billionaires that gave
heavily to Trump and the GOP this
last election cycle (I believe it was
in WashPo or HuffPo today)...

Funny how the uber rich, ALWAYS
vote their own needs, even though
they need the least...

Adelson used democracy and "free speech" against america.

Using our ------ up corrupt system of election funding, adelson legally bribed politicians to do the bidding of israel and look out for israels interests above our own.

Bible thumpers don't care because ther weak brains think israel=jesus=good, but this same thing could be done be someone loyal to china... or COUGH COUGH russia. Of course then the morons will simply switch to russia=good, even though they want to destroy us, if they send checks to the GOP, then they're good.

"Don't celebrate too much."

Someone has confused sarcasm with celebration. Again.

Ouch! Well done!

It makes me happy to know you are aware of it too!

It's a wonderful parable isn't it?

Share it with a friend.

Adelson was Schrodinger's first attempt using a ringworm fungus. Now if Rona takes McConnell I will believe that even gross genetic mistakes can be corrected. Everyone should blow him kisses just to hedge our bets.

Always speak good of the dead. He's dead: good.
