Just because you're right doesn't mean tweeting everything in your head is right.

What is with these people who insist on tearing down everything? Why do they so love to extract the lemons out of the lemonade?

His political instincts are tone deaf as he'll learn in next election.

Maybe if San Francisco got its act together it could help more children....not biatch about what a foundation does with its own donations.

This. I think he had an excellent point, but an oh so shiatty delivery.

And, it's also why I despise twitter, FB, and the like. Nobody needs to know your every thought, jackwagon.

Because those thousands of volunteers didn't pump tons of money into the local businesses by buying lunch and other items while they were there. Not to mention great PR for the city, cause and awareness. Jerk.

The ads on that site are unbearably annoying. you close one and another pops up.  Its like 2001 all over again.  I don't know why I never installed adblock+ on my home machine.
 
2013-11-17 10:54:44 AM
And if this kid was his own or a member of the family, he'd just turn down the offer, too, right?

I just took Red Cross training to set up emergency shelters and we were told repeatedly that people tend to behave like 10 year olds.  Tattling and acting like spoiled brats.  This is just that, "why does he get something nice and I didn't."  Of course he said other kids didn't to try and cover
 
2013-11-17 10:56:13 AM
How many children could be fed for the price of one military training mission?  How many children could be fed if this douche gave up his salary for a year?  How many children could be fed if their deadbeat parents could have kept their legs closed until they could afford children?

/how many children could be fed with what I'll spend on beer watching football today?

In his defense, the kid isnt even "dying" which is what this whole make a wish thing is supposed to be about,

Bible quote time! Why? Just for fun.
Matthew 26:9
(Setup: Jesus anointed at Bethany prior to being crucified)
A woman came to Him with an alabaster vial of very costly perfume, and she poured it on His head as He reclined at the table.But the disciples were indignant when they saw this, and said, "Why this waste?"For this perfume might have been sold for a high price and the money given to the poor." But Jesus, aware of this, said to them, "Why do you bother the woman? For she has done a good deed to Me.  "For you always have the poor with you; but you do not always have Me. For when she poured this perfume on My body, she did it to prepare Me for burial.

Well then go cure something so Make a Wish can stop doing what they do, asshole.
 
2013-11-17 11:02:03 AM
Batkid is one of those rare opportunities where everybody comes together for a good cause.  It picked up steam and people participated across the country.  Only politicians would look at it from a dollars and cents perspective.

It's called community, you farking moron.

Survival rates are 50-85% for Leukimia. So the kid <i>probably*</i> won't die. I guess that makes being a dick a-ok.
 
2013-11-17 11:03:53 AM
Damn. What a two-faced bain that guy is, even if it turns out he's a joker.
 
2013-11-17 11:04:18 AM
How many people across the country after seeing that The Batkid, decided that now would be a good time to give to a charity. I think the whole event could cause a surge in giving. Here's wishing you three ghosts for Christmas Supervisor Scrooge.

Typical Democrat response. Those kids are on SNAP due to Democrat economic policies and and Liberal's in particular who run the city.

This. Straw vulcans, aspies, seem to be even immune to cynical uses of logic, is how this would support donation to poor and sick children rather than the govt saying "hand it over" at gunpoint to support "undesirables."
 
2013-11-17 11:08:42 AM
His argument gets played out on the internet everyday, in other contexts, and I'm sure it will play out in this thread as well.

"Oh sure, Good Deed X is well and good, but about Good Deeds Y and Z? Why couldn't we have done those instead?"

Nice way to change the discussion, but lauding one good deed doesn't in any way imply that the million other good things one could do are not also worth doing.

Seriously, if the idea of bringing this line of reasoning into a discussion ever pops up in your head, please keep quiet. Trust me, you have nothing interesting or original to say.

Right, because nothing helps poor people more than giving tax breaks to the wealthy, farm subsidies to huge corporations and taking our country to war.  Those Democrats must make money off food stamps, why else would they want to keep it going?  It couldn't be just to feed people, right?

How many kids do you think my total farm subscription could have fed by now?
 
2013-11-17 11:13:04 AM
"Wondering how many 1000s of SF kids living off SNAP/FoodStamps could have been fed from the $$."

SF came together for Batkid today, but we need to make SF into the personal 'Gotham' for every kid every day... or something like that. Praise the work and event and community, but remind people there are numerous children who need support, and the level of resources and organization here could as well be applied to other programs. The argument he made in his defense was good, but the tweet was terrible framing and curmudgeonly.
 
2013-11-17 11:13:24 AM
Anybody remember when Make a Wish was for kids who had terminal illnesses and less than a 20% survival rate? Anybody remember the exact moment they decided to turn retarded? Was it when they gave the girl with diabetes her wish?

Typical response from a Democrat mayor. Those kids are on SNAP due to economic policies of Democrats and Liberals in particular who run your city.
 
2013-11-17 11:15:10 AM
How dare he suggest that making one kid feel good isn't as important as improving the lives of hundreds of children.
