Job’s Widow Backs Amnesty, AGW, Gun Control

From a gushing New York Times:

Steve Jobs’s Widow Debuts on Philanthropic Stage

By PETER LATTMAN and CLAIRE CAIN MILLER | May 17, 2013

… Now, less than two years after Mr. Jobs’s death, Ms. Powell Jobs is becoming somewhat less private. She has tiptoed into the public sphere, pushing her agenda in education as well as global conservation, nutrition and immigration policy. Just last month, for example, she sat down for a rare television interview, discussing the immigration bill before Congress. She has also taken on new issues, like gun control…

So the New York Times will have to end their jihad and go back to loving Apple again.

“She’s been mourning for a year and was grieving for five years before that,” said Larry Brilliant, president of the Skoll Global Threats Fund who is an old friend of Mr. Jobs. “Her life was about her family and Steve, but she is now emerging as a potent force on the world stage, and this is only the beginning.” But she is doing it her way…

While some people said Ms. Powell Jobs should have started a foundation in Mr. Jobs’s name after his death, she did not, nor has she increased her public giving…

“In the broadest sense, we want to use our knowledge and our network and our relationships to try to affect the greatest amount of good,” Ms. Powell Jobs said in one of a series of interviews with The New York Times.

Still, the fortune she inherited, making her the world’s ninth wealthiest woman, according to the Bloomberg billionaires index, has catapulted her into the upper echelon of global philanthropists. And that has led to certain expectations…

Like many technology titans, her husband was criticized for not giving away as much money as he could. Mr. Jobs did not give publicly during his life — though there have been rumors of at least one major anonymous gift, to a hospital.

He also declined to sign the Giving Pledge, the organization started by Warren E. Buffett and Bill Gates to persuade the country’s richest families to vow to give away at least half of their fortunes…

The cold hearted bastard!

Ms. Powell Jobs is best known in the education field for College Track, which she started in 1997. The group helps prepare low-income students from underserved communities for college, providing rigorous academic training and extracurricular activities…

Her involvement with immigration flowed from College Track. In its early years, a number of her students in the program were teenagers who had come to the country, unauthorized…

Oh, good, the NYT has found yet another euphemism for ‘illegal alien.’

Ms. Powell Jobs has become a leader in pushing for decade-old legislation known as the Dream Act, a measure that would provide legal status for immigrants who arrived in the country as young children. Last December, she enlisted the Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim to make a documentary about immigration…

How wonderful! Soon these poor illegal aliens might be able to enjoy all the rights that Apple’s employees in China do.
