As we come upon another holiday season. Let us sit back and reflect on those less fortunate than ourselves. Those who truly are suffering. No, not residents of war-torn cities. No not the malnourished, the unemployed, the homeless, the scorned, the depraved. No not any of them. The ones who are truly suffering tonight are Michaele and Tareq Salahi.
What’s more now they are under possible scrutiny for potentially cooking the books and not paying vendors for their Foundation event to raise money for charity. According to Tareq, the 2007 event raised $250,000. According to the local charities who were supposed to benefit, they received $10,000 combined.
My heart goes out to them on this cold night.
Reminds one of the idgits in britland claiming disability benefit whilst being fit enough to play sport. You just wouldn’t put yourself in the limelight, right?
Ego gets the best of us all. And those idgits live in the States too. I love when the news does secret exposes on that.
Yep. Tiger Woods is going to suffer greatly, me thinks?
especially if I get time to do my thing tomorrow.
Glad you’re sendin’ your heart out to ’em. Looks like they need one bad.
I am in a giving mood.
Hmm, Bearman what happened to you giving them the finger or for that matter the fringe?????
I really feel for em’.
Send them some money. Maybe they will have a legal fund set up.
What’s the big deal?! I crash Beartoons all the time! What do you have for snacks in this joint, Bearman! 🙂
I have 2 year old Fruit Cake, some cheetohs under the couch and something that looks like jerky but I don’t think it started that way.
Two year old fruit cake is at its peak
I’ll take your word for it.
A three course selection – NICE! 🙂
2 year old fruitcake sounds okay, long as you didn’t hide it with the cheetohs under the couch.
I have remnants of a sugar daddy lollipop candy stuck to the floor mat of my car
I love Sugar Daddy’s and not the pay my way through college ones either.
it’s people like this who make me hate people like this right here at the holidays! is everyone a crook these days?? i got to go back over to hambo central. i was just starting to get over my fear of christmas.
Tisch, tisch, such ignorance. MY FECKING BLOG.
where for the next 3 weeks a daily mini-rant on the folly of modern Xmas, combined with some non-seasonal music as an antidote to the Xmas Muzak. Enough of a plug?
See now Dave you are only about 3 more comments here when I add you to the blog roll…haha.
Now why would a British guy name his blog after a Swedish Dance?
I thought it had something to do with Swine Flu 🙁
Sweet suffering fecking whatsits. I had no idea my longtime nickname has such a connection! My late father even named his corner store with it for 8 years. I have modified my blogwelcome page to accomodate this revelation. Thanks, I think.
Its great you’re looking out for folks like this Bear
I try my best.
So they kept the money?
I am not saying one way or the other. That is what others might be alluding to.
I am pretty sure they are Muslim so, if you say anything mean, you will have a Jihad placed on your head. Tread lightly my friend.
I am loved by all. I don’t need to tread. And the only treading I have done is in the water and there is nothing lightly about it.
Very thoughtful of you Bear, but those two sly foxes can obviously take care of themselves.
I know YNB but maybe I’ll start a fundraiser for them.
All I can say is “Ugh”.
Regardless, you are a kind soul, Bearman. If you ever lose your drawing hand in a fire, I say you and Tannerleah collaborate on an online publication to help draw attention to these poor souls…
I’ll be the CEO, and therefore will be in charge of all financial matters.
Just trust me.
I know you are just in it for the reality show.
its not the first time high security has failed in the world … remember that one time at band camp…oh hang on not that one.. remember when this Australia comedy team called “Chasers War on Everything” managed to get through levels of security at an APEC conference to reach the red zone and went through 2 check points even then. One of the guys was dressed as Osama Bin Laden! hahaha
i found the clip below:
Im sorry for the Whitehouse….this could have been an attack..lucky these people were after fame and not other things.
they have done some real shit here
Well it exposed two things. Poor Whitehouse security and the couple themselves.
No cartoon to go with the post?
sorry..travel week and didn’t bring my wacom.
I couldn’t believe it. They even got right there to the president, holy crap! If I’d known it was that easy I would have dropped by ages ago. you know, for a beer summit
True Ture. A Beer Summit sounds more fun that a state department dinner.
Oh yes, I feel terrible for them 🙁 Thanks for your comment on my Nicole Richie article. I guess we can’t be geniuses every day. I fixed it.
