Affirmative Action strikes a Knock-out!

First, the SCOTUS decision, and this, Ward Connerly is making lots of $$$ out of his crusading against affirmative action, giving himself a half-a-million dollar salary.

Interesting article.

I would have to agree that since Connerly's groups are funded by voluntary private donations, rather than public taxpayer funds, it is up to the donors to decide what is fair compensation to Connerly for his time.

Any volunteer donor is free not to give, after all.

Contrast that with people who live well from taxpayer funded projects. Taxpayers cannot simply withdraw their tax payments when tax money is spent unwisely.

It seems a lot of people simply do not like what Connerly stands for, and will try just about anything to try to embarass him. Unfortunately for them, Connerly is both charming and honest, which makes potential donors look favorably on him.
