I like it. Lobbyists would go nuts.

I'm a fan of how they have an operative for illegal cannabis drug cartels on nearly each cannabis related subreddit who censors all non fanboys, and who they take donations from under various alts, then do nothing when reported on their stalking and then ban the guy after an organized smear job. I think it's fucking hilarious and just the way to shut me up. Reddit: Flying high off the proceeds of crime.

The powerful would simply change the definitions around to get through loopholes and technicalities again though.

I like this, I think we should also lobby for having tougher laws on what qualifies as a not for profit, and their tax exempt status.

Non-profits should not have endowments. Because, really, what is a profit, except money you haven't used yet?

Looking at you, universities...

I'll be the one to say this: All organized religions

3 best jobs in Japan 1. Monk 2. Mortician 3. Barber

2 and 3 pay taxes.

It's interesting when the chairs rotate. It's like a ponzy scheme time share.

This just seems like it would concentrate power in fewer and fewer non-profits, as many would quickly run out of relevant candidates for their board. It would also give tremendous power to the few board members that chaired the biggest non profits.

Sounds like the opposite of what we want.

Maybe we need fewer non profits. For one, there are so many veterans charities that it's hard to figure out which one is going to be legit, outside of the major ones. Im in outdoor advertising and just about every day I get a call about helping their "awesome new 501c3" only to fail months later loosing thousands of dollars that could have gone to a reputable cause. I for one don't like big government or monopolies, but there has to be better way than letting just anyone start a non profit.

They would just get themselves "advisory" positions.

Not sure why you were downvoted. I imagine this would be the most obvious loophole that would be exploited.
