FitzShivering: Kit Fister: FinFangFark: Kit Fister: extroverted_suicide: Kit Fister: Cyclometh: $2855... this is amazing.

The sad thing about this is that people on here will do threads like this to buy Biden a TA, but will they give to Cancer, AIDS, or any other charity? No. But yes, of course, Biden needs a TA.

Maybe when this one wraps up, we can do another one to buy you some farking eyes and a working brain.

Yeah, I deserve that. I posted before I read because I was being a jackass. I'm sorry. :(

darn, and I was gonna whip this one out for you.

LoL, nice. Yeah, this thread didn't deserve my being an asshole, so I do deeply apologize. I shouldn't troll anything that's positive.

FTFY.


Fair enough. So, aside from giving my last few bucks to the donation link, anything else I can do?

Things I didn't expect to happen when I woke up this morning:

1. That Allison Scagliotti would be lying next to me.
2. That I would spend 6+ hours participating in a campaign to buy Joe Biden a Trans Am.
3. The weather in Phoenix would be absolutely gorgeous.

2 out of 3 ain't bad

Truly a remarkable day on Fark :)

Cyclometh: theflatline: "NEWSFLASH"

I forwarded the link and a short email to a buddy of mine out in California. He is getting the info to Burt Reynolds wife and his PA to pass along to BURT.

The organizers of this shindig can email at the theflatline -at- gmail.com.

He says we have a very good response of hearing from Burts people.

Very cool! That'd be epic.


Cant access email right now on my phone. Please email me at joebidenstransam at the gmail.com with details.

Thanks for your help!!

IronTechV1: RichieLaw: I thought I made it pretty evident that those perks weren't real...I honestly dont think a disclaimer is necessary at this point.... Right? People aren't that dumb.

Umm... You live on the same big blue spinning ball thingy i do? These human-creatures are of questionable moral, ethical, and intelligence capacities. For some reason, when they find a knife, they think it belongs in some well-meaning back.


Oh, bullshiat. The majority of people are of good moral and ethical character, immaterial of their intelligence. We just pay more attention to the very tiny percentage that are assholes.

I find it exceedingly awesome that you admitted you shouldn't have been trolling to begin with. You get a +1 in my book. Wasn't trying to rip on you, just think trolling, in general, ruins a lot of things that it shouldn't, for very little good result.

Twice Banned: Mercutio74: Twice Banned: Good for you. How does it feel to out do Biden in just a few hours?

Personally, pretty farking good. Especially when most of us realize this isn't about Biden specifically. It's not for his gain. It's not to make him look better.

It's a fun, grassroots, charity motivated thing that spontaneously erupted from the mind of a fellow farker. Today, instead of sorting derp into the "Troll" and "Disturbed Individual" bins... farkers who spend time on the politics tab did something small that makes the world a better place. Personally, it's stuff like today that makes me fall in love with Fark again... and I've been with the ol' gal for many years (I've got a fark member number lower than the cost of Uncle Joe's Trans Am). So whine all you want, sonny... the rest of us are going to bask in the feeling of doing something that damn near approaches performance art but helps people.

Cheers.


Some people are donating because it is a fun way to donate to charities they may like. Some people are participating because they like Biden. Either way, at least two of those are good charities by any definition, I know little of the Biden Breast Health Initiative and I don't really know what GLAAD does with money.

Fun fact: I donated my $300 tax refund Bush sent out years ago to Planned Parenthood in his name. Sometimes, trolling and doing something good can be actually go together. If you have such a hate-on for Biden, donate $10 to provide what you think will be a little embarrassment to him and help out some good causes. Or, maybe, just shut the fark up and let some people have some fun without being a prick for no good goddamn reason.

unchellmatt: The Yahoo news page has some of the most lulz worthy butthurt posts I've seen in the whole of today.


The commenters on YouTube, Yahoo, CNN HAVE to be paid shills. They are probably like the paid Twitter followers. You can actually buy one thousand Twitter followers for $14 per month. This apparently boosts your Twitter 'street cred' and adds to your 'celebrity' by making it appear you are loved by the masses. Your paltry $14 investment will even buy you phony ghost tweets from India telling everybody how awesome you are.

Or then again, it may be that really racist brother-in-law, co-worker, teahadist or ignorant cracker from southern shiatkickastan throwing their poop again because they are afraid and angry.

SO the big question here.... Should the TA be a manual or automatic?
 
2012-10-12 07:37:54 PM
In regards to the actual car, let's slow down a little on picking out the car until we have the money. That way we can just go get it and bargain the price down. That way we'll have more to contribute on top of any auction.

I definitely like what has been linked though. I just donmt want to get too far ahead of ourselves.

We've already made a difference. Even if we do not raise another cent I am so incredibly proud of all of you.

The brand had been going downhill for more than a decade. There's a special place in hell for the person who decided a Grand Prix should have 4 doors. Right next to the guy who let them put a back seat in a Thunderbird and whoever first thought of CAFE.

I grew up in a blue-collar family. One of the things I like about Joe is that he reminds me of some of the cooler old New England guys my father used to know. Big heart, human, sense of humor, level, scrappy, stands up for what he thinks is right. Getting some money to a charity in his name is pretty easy.
