RichieLaw:

All good points. AsI said above I am an attorney.


I am not an attorney, but I have a better attorney handle than you.

You are missing the point

We r going to buy biden a car because debate and meme! it make sense, because funny sort of!

No, that's just what spawned the idea in the subby's mind. It quickly turned into a charity fund raiser for 4 organizations allowing people to have fun while doing it.

Seriously, if you people can't see that, your world must be very dark.


Because people who are suddenly motivated to donate to charity because it's mildly amusing in a round about way are the people who get it? Yeah, great that you're finally doing something, but if it's because this amuses you, you're really the one missing the point.

Can we get the video linked on the campaign updates, RichieLaw?
 
2012-10-13 12:47:23 AM  
I don't know if it's been mentioned, but I believe that the reaction from Biden on The Onion was from Car and Driver and he actually laughed at the question. I don't think he was offended by the joke or could spin away from it.

C/D: Sadly, we must ask about the Onion story. While shirtless, have you ever washed a 1981 Pontiac Trans Am in your driveway?

JB: [Laughing] You think I'd drive a Trans Am? I have been in my bathing suit in my driveway and not only washed my Goodwood-green 1967 Corvette but also simonized it. At least the Onion should have had me washing a Trans Am convertible. I love convertibles.

I'd appreciate if a new youtube account was created and the video posted there. You can pull it down from Youtube, RichieLaw?

Why dont you create one and then email me the new link or post it here so I can upload it. I am away from a computer at the moment and am on my mobile. I can manage the youtube as well if you like. Just shoot me the pw and sn. Joebidenstransam at gmail.com

Check your Biden email account. New location for video:

We have a couple reddit threads going. Some of them have enough momentum to be seen by most users over the weekend.

Threads on the Indiegogo link: Link

Threads on the Yahoo News Article: Link

The threads in the smaller subreddits like r/nottheonion, r/offbeat, r/obama, r/politicalhumor, and others have enough momentum to be visible for the next few days. Any thread in a default sub like politics or funny needs a lot more momentum to keep it visible.

Developing this over the weekend with things like the video and other ideas, then pushing that out on Monday would be the best way to garner more attention.

I don't know about "getting it", but yes, this thread reminded me that I haven't donated to any charities in a while. And if I can donate money to what I think are good causes and have a big laugh with a bunch of other people at the same, it's win-win.

Haters can donate to mock Biden, and supporters can donate to show their appreciation of him. Everybody wins.

The only people who lose are the ones who get pissed off by this. And frankly, knowing my participation contributes to pissing them off is its own little reward too.

This is the perfect place to get rid of the $5+ left at the end of a disposable gift card that isn't good for much else. You also get to upload a photo of yourself when you donate for posterity, or make a donation in the name of your favorite butthurt Republican troll.

I would have just called you a threadshiater. He was at least creative about it.

People buy pink spatulas at Wal-Mart thinking it will save the ta-ta's. We just want to see the real Joe Biden scrub down a Trans Am in his Jorts and spread the donations among 4 groups. We must be terrible people.

Anyone who donates a nickle towards this shiat deserves to be drug through the streets naked behind the Trans Am while Betty White drives it to the farmers market.

Im amazed anyone can think of biden as anything besides the crotchy old fossil he came off as last night, he wasnt aggressive or pointing out policies he was acting like the boss who never listens but takes credit when things go right.

In short he was a douche and people who refuse to see that are farking retarded. Go read Foucalt, people need to see that can apply to either side not just right wing nut bags...........

Has anyone looked this over yet? It's about gifts to the President, but I think we can safely assume it also applies to the VP.

Although the President, like all other federal officers and employees, is prohibited from receiving
personal gifts from foreign governments and foreign officials without the consent of Congress
(U.S. Const., art. I, §9, cl. 8), the President is generally free to accept unsolicited personal gifts
from the American public.
Most of the restrictions on federal officials accepting gifts from
"prohibited sources" (those doing business with, seeking action from, or regulated by one's
agency) are not applicable to the President of the United States (5 C.F.R. §2635.204(j)), although
the President may not solicit gifts from such sources. The President, in a similar manner as other
federal officials, may also receive unrestricted gifts from relatives and gifts that are given on the
basis of personal friendship. When personal gifts accepted by the President or his immediate
family exceed a certain amount, those gifts are required to be publicly disclosed in financial
disclosure reports filed annually by the President. 5 U.S.C. app., §§101(f)(1), 102(a)(2). The
President remains subject to the bribery and illegal gratuities law which prohibits the receipt of a
gift or of anything of value when that receipt, or the agreement to receive such thing of value, is
connected in some way to the performance (or nonperformance) of an official act.

I guess as long as we don't try to bribe Joe into preferential treatment of Farkers we should be golden.
