Tarkus: Isn't it illegal for public officials to accept personal gifts?
downstairs: Tarkus: Isn't it illegal for public officials to accept personal gifts?Caveat and CSB: When I was in 3rd grade, we did the whole "write a letter to the president" thing. Ronald Reagan was president, and I liked him because he was a folksy old dude who liked jelly beans and all that (come on, I was in 3rd grade!) So I included a dime in the letter for him. A week or so later I got a very official yellow envelope from the White House staff informing me that the President cannot accept cash via the mail, with my dime returned. Heh. Probably have an FBI file now. /Probably not

Am willing to make a "Making of a Meme" documentary or something in another day or two - it could be updated as time goes on. Just spitballing.
Boe: Since no one is planning to send him cash via the mail we should be ok.

RichieLaw: Well, in case anyone was wondering, the power of Fark is real and is posed to do something pretty fantastic over the coming days. In true internet fashion, what started as satire and then a joke submission is now turning into a real movement with bona fide media attention. I want to take a second to thank Hack Patooey for submitting this idea and helping with the Facebook page. cyclometh for his awesome-sauce voice over work and coyagie for creating the video that now sits on the indiegogo site.Other important links include:FB Page:Twitter: @givejoethebird and @joebidenstransa (managed by Farkers that I could not find in the thread so please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due!)In the past 24 hours we have raised almost $5,000. That is 20% of our goal! I am shocked and amazed by the support this thing has generated and am incredibly appreciative. For those that have donated because of a Biden crush (also a mixed drink of Natty-Lite, Ice Tea and Vermouth), because you're a Farker or for the LULZ, thank you. We literally couldn't do this without you.Now, for those that haven't read through the mammoth thread from yesterday, here are some things you should know.1. Yes, we are buying Joe Biden a Trans Am.2. Yes, we understand he is the Vice President of the United States. Please read the indiegogo site or watch the youtube video.3. Yes, we know how much the Vice President makes a year and understand most of his expenses as the VP are paid for. Please read the indiegogo site or watch the youtube video.4. Yes, we know what Biden has contributed over the past to charity. We don't care. The man has publicly and fantastically served the public of his state and country for well over 30 years.5. The goal of the project is to "give" VP Biden the Trans Am. And by "give" I have Uncle Joe endorse the idea behind the movement and then auction the Trans Am off, with all proceeds going to 4 charities: Wounded Warrior Foundation, the Biden Breast Healt ...
