Lucky you--that's the sort of job I want. I'd never get a Canadian visa to do it, though.

Serious answer: Talk about continuing Jack Layton's legacy. Discuss how you'd target fundraising in solid NDP ridings for the benefit of marginal and swing ridings. Discuss long-term planning: younger donors might only be able to give you a few dollars, but fundraising is all about getting donors to give on a regular basis to establish a connection. "Paint the town/university/riding orange." Data analysis of high-NDP-interest, high-wealth areas (which I could do myself.....arrrrrggggghhh, again, I wish I could do this kind of job).

Good luck and let us know how you did!

Research Joe Trippi's work on the 2004 Howard Dean Campaign, profit

It has become the basis for most grass roots campaign efforts and was the model used by Obama in 2008. It was very successful in getting small donations has the backbone of the campaign instead of relying on a few large donors and has been emulated worldwide with many of the advisers from those campaigns getting payed to work on campaigns outside the US

That's a Bricklin, isn't it? Their big marketing point was their safety features, as I recall from their breif existence

/used to be one around Sacramento I'd see every once in a while

MaudlinMutantMollusk: That's a Bricklin, isn't it? Their big marketing point was their safety features, as I recall from their breif existence


yep, full name was Bricklin SV-1
SV=Safety Vehicle

The thing was built out of a spare parts bin of Detroit parts
Frame was from a Corvette, engine from Ford (351W) or AMC, and muffler was from a F-body

Bricklin was also the guy who imported the first Subaru 360s and Yugos into the US, now he wants to be the first to import Chinese made cars. Guy is a serial failure when it comes to cars

Suggest ways you can capitalize on Jack Layton's Video Professor series too.

1) Host a kegger for the entire city of Oshawa.

2) Invite The Hip.

3) Ask tearfully for a minute of silence for Jack Layton.

4) Pass the plate.

Lol, no, only mustaches, and by the time i get it, it will be too late to use Movember...

The idea that would raise the most money would be wear you publically flog all Candidates dumb enough to consider being NDP and charge entrance to the floggings, bonus benefit of candidate that takes the most floggings without quiting canbe publically executed and bring in more money
 
2012-11-12 03:48:53 PM
Thanks The Third Man, zedster, and I am weasel for your ideas. Gonna research that stuff tonight. I did already have quite a lengthy list of ideas from the mundane to the silly, just was scoping for more.

Also thanks for the well wishes and the laugh over the Bricklyn, i believe it was NB premier Richard Hatfield that had invested heavily in that idea (i was a kid then, bit foggy)

Just make sure to stop off at the automated ATM machine before the interview, just in case.

you're right! obviously subster does not have the talent and imagination to do the position on their own. so the answer is to pick strangers brains and use the answers to make yourself shine? yup, you're a future boss or politician subby.

Festival. Tethered hot-air balloon, pop rock cover band, ten restaurants providing samples of their signature dishes, raffle a flat screen, silent auction donated items, sell tickets for the beer/wine/pop tent, tickets for the food samples, tickets for the balloon ride, local radio broadcasting on-site, sack race, egg toss, feats of strength, football toss for accuracy, popcorn machine, invite others to set up booths (dog rescue groups, organic farming clubs, volunteer coast guard auxiliary, Elks, BSA, etc.), no booths taking money just raising awareness, all money to the sponsoring cause, facepainting...

Lol, i already had a big list of ideas and was seeing if anybody had anything different. In case you didn't read the thread, there was just some general advice, well wishing and jokes about the Bricklin.

/still trying to figure out why I have you favorited
//granted, it's as "smart but trolly"

Thanks for the tips, I'll keep those items in mind (already had some on my list)

ooo.. instead of charging blow jobs for plum government jobs made up for no reason at all. SELL those jobs to people. ( and just pay hookers for blowjobs )

First interview down, waiting for callback for second. I got called in for first because my cover letter was quote "the funniest one they'd seen"

So, if i don't get the job, at least there's that.

I'll keep y'all posted :)
