The Kennedys’ sense of entitlement was so great they expected everything for free, says designer who worked on $4 million eco-home

We’re all going to get these deals, right? It’s economic justice.

Daily Mail

  • Mary Richardson Kennedy hired Robin Wilson to help rebuild the family’s mold-infested 1920s house in Bedford, New York
  • The family secured more than $1.3 million in high-end appliances for free
  • Contractors were promised credit in a television show that never aired
  • House currently on the market for $4 million after Mary Richardson Kennedy hung herself in the barn in May

During the remodeling of the seven-bedroom mansion, the Kennedys amassed more than $1.3 million in free products including high-end appliances, dual flush toilets, solid brass and zinc faucets, hardwood flooring, and hypoallergenic rugs. In addition, the family used their influence to secure massive discounts from the builder and other contractors.

Builder Jim Blansfield, who led the two-year construction project, said he charged ‘very, very much less than what I would normally charge. I felt the project had great merit.’

However his work on the house did not lead to an increase in business.

Many contractors were promised free publicity and credit in a television show for NBC, which never aired.

The kitchen was designed free-of-charge, and the craftsman who did the bookcases and fireplace mantels charged half his usual rate.

Energy-efficient windows were provided by a local distributor for a Minnesota company, Marvin Windows and Doors, at a discount of more than $100,000.

But Richardson called Sen. Al Franken, a Minnesota Democrat and an ally of her husband, and asked him to force the company to donate the windows.

    i wonder if those fucking kennedys had anything to do with this::

    Are we still a sovereign nation?

    Are we moving closer to a global system controlled by the United Nations, dare we say a “one world government?”

    Let us start by looking at this from the perspective of the organizations that are calling for the UN to monitor our polling places. We need to realize that this is a different America then the America that most of us remember growing up in. We are being slowly conditioned to accept this new system. If you look at the other side of the coin there are many who truly believe the America they have known is flawed, as that is what they have been taught. In turn they believe it needs to be fundamentally changed. So they look toward the UN and other organizations that support this view. In their view it is a human rights issue.

    Below is an excerpt of a letter from The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the NAACP, and six other civil rights organizations to the OSCE (Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe) just for an idea of this mindset.

    According to a report by the Brennan Center for Justice,[1] photo ID requirements, shortened early voting periods, limits on poll worker assistance, proof of citizenship requirements, restrictions on same day and community-based registration, and disenfranchisement of former felons, may result in the disenfranchisement of more than five million Americans in this election. These efforts are nothing less than an all-out assault on the progress of the last century—indeed, on the very legacy of the civil and human rights movement. They are part of a coordinated political effort to disenfranchise millions of Americans—particularly traditionally disenfranchised groups like minorities, low-income people, women, young people, persons with disabilities, and the elderly.

    The more you know about the Kennedy’s the more you hate them.

    I will say that the ‘discount for me today’ and get some intangible (but never really spelled out)benefit tomorrow lie is a common ploy used by predatory psychopaths, like the Kennedys.

    Marvin Windows and Doors were shaken down: “Richardson called Al Franken (D Minn.)…and asked him to force the company to donate the windows.”
    Note. Last week Mitt Romney gave a speech in front of a large Marvin Windows sign and was well received in Minnesota. Hope and change.

    Most of the Kennedy’s past and present are dogs and when you lie down with them… I have no sympathy for the contractors but wouldn’t it be nice if the Minnissota window maker came out with confirmation that Franken used his office to coerce him into giving the windows away.
