Cutting Out The Middlemen

I think I can safely say that all who visit this here back porch are in agreement that centralization of the governmental kind is generally meant to create efficiencies, but seldom does.

The same is true of pretty much any organization which is dealing solely with collecting and disbursing other people’s money — and here I’m turning my baleful gaze onto the cockroaches known as “international aid societies”, who can skim money out of donations better than any dairy can skim the cream off milk.  And I have some support in this viewpoint, from the BritGov of all places:

Aid minister Penny Mordaunt has drawn up plans for the UK to take more control of how we help countries around the world.
The International Development Secretary has demanded a major overhaul so less of the UK’s £14.1billion aid budget is handed out through staff at international agencies.
She wants to use the cash to fund specific projects chosen by Britain with more oversight to make sure money is not wasted.
The proposal is part of this year’s comprehensive spending review, which will set the course of Government budgets for the next few years. Around a third (37 per cent) of the aid budget is currently spent as contributions to multilateral organisations, such as the International Monetary Fund, World Bank and European Commission.

Leaving aside the need for a minister for aid (the Brits love this Yes, Minister crap), what Mordaunt says is absolutely correct.  For those who know not who she is, by the way, allow me to enlighten with a  couple pics:




The Right Honorable Member from Portsmouth North sure makes a change from the dreary Socialist trolls who infest our body politic, doesn’t she?  And she makes sense — an even bigger change.


  1. I got a better idea, one that will benefit MORE people.

    Anyone even ATTEMPTING to steal anything at all is immediately shot all the way through both eyes right on the spot.

    There. Now that blob of shit above and all her criminal cohorts can go seek honest employ, or die on the vine. I prefer the latter.

  2. watch the documentary film Poverty Inc. It is eye opening at the willfully wastefulness and horrid results of these “do gooders.”


  3. This is why the only charity I give to is the local church. I know that 95% or more of the money and 100% of the food shelf goes to needy families in my town.

  4. NGO’s create more problems than they can ever solve.
    Best to take them all on a sea cruise, and scuttle the ship.

  5. It’s great. NGOs, which are part of the parasite class, skim off money intended for those in need. Therefore government officials, which are part of the parasite class, must oversee their activities, while themselves skimming off money intended for those in need.

    Too make it more fun, the NGOs are usually tax exempt and spend some of their skimmed and tax free money on donations to the government officials to help the ones who keep them in business in office.
