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.

I think the donations need some updated perks. The T-shirt is great and all but it will never make it to the antipodes so here's a few idea.

*** A subscription to the Internet version of The Onion. Of course this would be much cooler if we could get hold of somebody at The Onion and have them send an email saying somebody had a free subscription to their free website while it remains free.

*** The Farkettes guide to to BIE, being an unofficial and non-binding resource on how to be a whiny beggar for completely mythical entities without looking too desperate.

*** Total FARK for life, but only on leap days, being Feb. 29th, provided the software can be so enabled, provided somebody gets to it in time, maybe by 2016 but if not by then, then definitely maybe by 2020.

I struggle with having a filter and it's totally gone with alcohol. Someone may need to babysit me.

I'm the same way actually. One of the reasons I love the internet; where I have to type as opposed to the mouth diarrhea that normally occurs while I am in public.... Just keep this page up on a tab and scream here when you feel the need arise.

I KNOW I'm drunk because I think to myself, "Bon, you're totes killin' it on Yahoo! You go girl." And somewhere inside of my brain - there's a small little voice that's trying to remind me that I'm definitely not killing anything because I'm not a hilarious person, I should never say, "totes", and that my glass is empty again.

Yea, I'm no Bon Jovi fan either, but it's a TRANS AM, and I live in JERSEY. So I can't see it as too crazy.

If we do keep it, maybe keep that stuff in its own section.


The Trans Am aspect is why I threw those songs out there. Butt rock isn't my cup-o-tea, but if I had a Trans Am, it would be MANDATORY.

Hey, T-shirt peeps- I got this question via email this morning:

You might want to mention that the shirt will require 300 resolution setting in photoshop and not the standard 72ppi. Unless that's why you stated the dimensions are so large?

Do you have a link to the printer's requirements?


If we have that info I'll add it to the PS thread.

GreatGlavinsGhost: beenjammin: GreatGlavinsGhost: T-shirts are coming!

This doesn't make sense. I was told winter was coming.

Biden hoodies?

lol, I mean t-shirts related to the Biden-Trans Am thingie.


Haha, yeah, I know! My stupid brother made me watch this Game of Thrones show and now it's all I hear everytime someone says "X is coming."

CapeFearCadaver: beenjammin: Yeah, it's just that I wish I could contribute somehow. I think it's just a self-conscious thing since I was discharged from the military. I'm still super-stoked to see this taking off, and how well everyone is doing it. I just miss being effective and working with a team.

You have. It is. You are... and you are :)

Most everyone already knows the following, so whatever; I very recently got out of an abusive relationship. Where the ex was pulled off while in the midst of assaulting me by a neighbor with a gun, arrested and charges pressed by local PD, tried by the State and hence convicted and sentenced by the same. I know that it is not the same thing as pure war, though I would suggest reading Judith Herman's: Trauma & Recovery. Besides good friends and company this book was amazing. Over two years of being controlled to the point where I was not allowed to open my mouth and state a simple word much less express an opinion, then trying to regain that voice back... regardless, EIP if you need to talk. Probably shouldn't have put all of this here. But it is 4:30am on a Sunday morning and I'm on my like ninth beer :)


I thank you for the words, CapeFearCadaver. I'll be fine, really. I just spent several months after my discharge just cruising around the US having a pretty biatchin' summer, just to clear my head. Put 14,000 miles on my car and met some pretty cool people. Things aren't perfect for me right now, but really who has it perfect? I'm sorry to hear about your own experience, I wish you hadn't had to deal with something like that.

I'd take getting shot at over that any day, me thinks.

Q: Are you really going to give Joe Biden a Trans Am?

Q: OK... so what ARE you going to do with the Trans Am?
A: Ideally, we're going to buy the car, get it to Washington, D.C. and hopefully get Joe Biden to do a photo op with it- and maybe even sign it! Whether or not that works out, we'll be auctioning the Trans Am and the proceeds will be donated to four charities.

My husband thinks I'm a little off my rocker (he's FAR less of a moderate Republican
than I am) but oh well. I'm having a hell of a time helping to pull this off.


Glad to hear. I was honestly thinking that if the goal here is achieved, why not do it every 4 years regardless of the VP? On one hand, you have the "specialness" of this event diluted a bit, but who wouldn't think buying Ryan a Weiner-mobile wouldn't be fab?

@Ronald: "Teabagging" is indeed what some homosexuals do. But they don't belong to the Tea Party. The group who wanted to buy Clinton a blow up doll gave up in dispair when they realized that they didn't know which sex to get him. A man who likes to be done that way too much is way too gay to be straight. And the fact that he married a lesbian from Wellesley should have tipped you off.

is he trying to say getting BJs from fat girls is gay? if so i'm queer as a $3 bill.

The Facebook page is a great idea - but a lot of people like to "share" pictures for a cause. I was thinking we could caption something with the link and campaign name that users can post and share across Facebook.

The picture I attached is one of my foster dogs (Hank). I don't want to end up triggering any lawsuits for inappropriate or usage without permission so I just used something on hand. I'm not particularly funny or clever.

Dear Mr. RichieLaw:
I think a link to this thread on the donation site, down there with the links to the charities, would be appropriate. Something like "The discussion thread that started it all". That would give FARK more exposure, and maybe more hits, and maybe more TF subscriptions for Drew's beer fund. Also, the links to the charities should have captions so the viewer doesn't have to look at the URL to see where they go.

You and Coeyagi and Cyclometh and Hack Patooey are the quintessence of awesome and should get TF for life. You guys should be known collectively as "The Prophets of Fark", or "Seal Team Fark" or "Fark Jedi" or "Masters of the Farkiverse" or some such.

I'm going to have to get a Twitter account now, just so I can twitter bomb Portia De Rossi (gay), Christina Applegate (breast cancer), Sanjay Gupta (doctors) and Tammy Duckworth (wounded warriors)...


I responded to you in the other thread:

I have thought about doing this but I wanted to make sure it is cool with everyone on the forums. Some people have some things in their profiles that they probably don't want broadcast to the world. I just got back to a computer so I am going to update the pitch to reflect that this started on Fark.

traylor: I contributed my share yesterday because I naively believed that this wasn't a thing about US politics but rather the Onion and the lulz. Seeing this thread going green on the Politics tab made me sad. I want my 5 back, dammit.


I'm sorry you feel that way. This is more about the Onion and the lulz. However, by the very nature of the project, there will be a liberal leaning. I mean, we're celebrating a Democratic Vice President. So, if you really want your $5 back I'll paypal it to you. Hit up my email and provide proof of your donation and your fark login.
