Diogenes: theorellior: Wow, can't you just feel the warm folksy wisdom just spewing forth?

Also, like most of Sarah's pearls of wisdom, it smells like ass.


Oh thanks a LOT for the imagery.

We had ass pennies, now we got ass pearls.

Delay: SevenizGud: Delay: The entire Democrat party GOP is a scam. The Democrats Republicans are farking up the House everything in the observable universe, given the chance they will fark up everything in the observable universe a second time, just to show the first time wasn't an accident the Senate and then the presidency move on to farking up everything in other universes of this multiverse. SarahPAC Hillary is sniper fire small tits on a big fat stinky error tarmac in Bosnia.

FTFY

WTF? You didn't like that I pointed her tits look small? They are, She is an older woman in her droopy tits stage of life.

Geez, just post that you adore Sarah's breasts (such as you imagined they once were) and because of that infatuation you admit you agree to anything she says now. Fair enough?


Just want to add that that post is farking great once you quote And all the HTML is wiped out.

Most of the other right wing PACs seem to be for money laundering, so you can't tell who is paying to spread lies all over everyone's televisions and radios.  This one's a more direct grift.

Sandra Dyberg of Vacaville, California, who gave $201.60 to SarahPAC, said she felt confident in Palin's hiring decisions. "The consultants that she uses are good consultants," she said. "I've done research on them."

Study it out!

Steve Auvil of Macungie, Pennsylvania, who donated $250, said this kind of consultant-class largesse was par for the course: "Come on, get real. How much of the DNC's money goes to consultants?"

Both sides are bad!

FatherChaos: Still my favorite thing about Sarah Palin.  Probably NSFW.


I was afraid that might be a Rick-Roll but then I thought "how stupid. Sarah's always gonna give you up. She's always gonna let you down. She's the Anti-Astley!"

RIDETHEWALRUS: ongbok: odinsposse: Whenever I read stories like this I always wonder how I can get in on the action. The main problem being I don't think I could hide my contempt like Sarah does.

The other day after reading about North Carolina and their efforts to lower the qualifications of charter school teachers to not needing any degree, I jokingly made a comment to my father saying "I'm going to try to figure out how to get into the NC charter school game, there is money to be made". He looked at me and said "Son, you don't want to make your money from bullshiat."

And that is it right there. Fleecing dumb, naive or mentally challenged people isn't very difficult to do. However most people aren't going to do it because they have some sense of right and wrong, and quite frankly their conscious won't let them do it.

The fascinating part of that is that Charter Schools regularly outperform traditional public schools, even though most don't require their teachers to have a BS degree in poetry or 13th century literature.

Teachers unions consistently try to misrepresent charter school performance by lumping in the performance of dropout recovery charter schools, which is about half of them and only serve students who are by definition lower performing, in their analysis. However, dropout recovery charters consistently produce more qualified graduates than equivalently situated public schools and non-dropout recovery charters vastly out perform their public school peers.

In fairness, charter schools tend to not jack up wages for irrelevant humanities degrees and instead focus on paying folks that actually demonstrate an ability to teach the material they are assigned to teach. So, the charter school career path may not be in your best interest.


The real fascinating part about it that charter school proponents forget to include is that public schools have to accept everybody, they don't get to pick and choose who they want to attend their school. So if your child is difficult or doesn't meet the standards for a charter school, they will be at the public school, and those teachers are trying their best to educate them.

TFerWannaBe: My estimation of Palin's intellect has increased. Fleecing rubes probably isn't that hard, but surely doing it so thoroughly requires some greater than average intelligence.


That's overselling it a bit. She's the middle age evolution of the cheerleader who convinces the nerdy loser to do her homework for her, claiming she'll one day let him play with her boobs.

The little dollar bill stunt would be more interesting and realistic if she taped $1000 to one, and only one, of the seats.

Think she could convince ~50% of the crowd to vote in favor not only of the lucky recipient getting to keep all of it, but also giving them $0.25 of their own dollar?

Apik0r0s: Congratulations on discovering the true nature of most "non-profits", "not-for-profits" and "charities" - which is to enrich those who run them.


This

<CSB> I briefly worked for an environmental group that got its funds via door-to-door canvassing. What can I say? I was young, idealistic, and wanted to make the world a better place. I soon discovered that canvassing for a non-profit was not the way to do it. I got to keep 50% of what I raised and the rest got divided up between nebulous administrative charges and some other non-profit that supposedly sets up cameras in the rain forest to help combat illegal logging etc...

I quit after a month because I felt the whole enterprise to be dishonest to those who wanted to make the world a better place by opening up their pocket-books. Where I live it's mostly liberal leaning groups that do canvassing, and I think its a total shell game for people to pretend like they're "activitsts" while neither accomplishing the good they set out to do nor being actually productive (aside from the marginal economic effect of spending the money that they're "earning" at farmer's markets and trendy eco-friendly shops, etc...).

Your anecdote has handily disproved the work of non-profits and charities everywhere. Well done.

So Palin-Americans are not only stupid enough to send money to her in the futile hope that she will actually run for something at some point but when told outright that they are being scammed they will go on defending her?

*considers this*

Part of me wants to congratulate her on running such a profitable enterprise but another part of me recognizes that it's bad to take advantage of the mentally feeble.

/Is it just me or do other people start to hear the theme song from The Sting playing in their heads when Palin's mug shows up on TV or in a Fark thread?
//Just me?

Hardly, I'd say. In my experience, however, groups whose primary source of revenue is door-to-door donations exist primarily as a way of providing jobs for the petitioners while the causes they claim to be advocating aren't advanced. If you think I was referring to, say, Amnesty International, the ACLU, Global Food Project, OXFAM, Planned Parenthood, etc..., then job well done on completely missing my point.

A lot of charities and non-profits not really doing much != all non-profits and charities not doing much
