Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?

Today, I received an onslaught of text messages concerning Fed Ed's GoFundMe page. It's yet another demonstration of his fatal flaw - hubris. He and his wife are both Moody Bible School grads, but must have missed what Proverbs has to say: "Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall." He deleted most of the Facebook comments taking him to task, but there's been plenty of online criticism at LehighvalleyLive, Morning Call and even Fox News. As I write this, he's already conned eight people into giving him $570. So I decided to try it myself, except I want $100 million. Hope you can help.

I will donate a broken rubber band, and my used chewing gum. Also, ten tickets for Musikfest that expired in August of 2017. We love you Bernie.

Bernie I am sorry to read if your digestive tract disordwr. Although rainbows are cute may I suggest having your ckosest friend from the Slate Belt removed so Hidy ho can have better travels. Just trying to help.

I donated because journalism is a public good and we need more of it. In these turbulent times we also need more bathroom humor. Bernie's reporting is... er... colorful, and it's also a public service.

Consider whether you really want to live in a world where a convicted felon gets more donations than Bernie, an actual public servant.

“Michael Moore” was Fed Ed’s Minister of Propaganda. His continued presence on the 5th floor is an insult to every tax payer in the City of Allentown and raises serious questions about anything resembling reform.

feel bad for Fed Ed's kids. No matter what you think of him and his wife, his kids will have a rough time of it.

Commissary cash.

I would gladly donate a C note if his wife took a job working the pole at a strip club, but that is the only way I would even consider giving anything. (At least we would know if the curtains match the drapes.)

Hokie, I really appreciate those expired tickets. One of the trolls here claims he can time travel so we’re going tonight.

But you have to ask this- If McMahon is so dedicated to "pursuing" justice as he said after the verdict, and willing to do so free of charge, why can't he pay his own hotel bill?

They're all bums!

Bernie:

Why? You were kidding and I understood that.

Nevertheless you put untold hours into getting the facts right and reporting them. You do watchdog journalism in the public interest, which has value far beyond what I donated. Plus the graphic gave me a chuckle. Keep it.

He'd have more luck setting up a go fund me account to help with his kid's college tuition, than paying for his lawyers.

Your Bible quote is particularly apt,and your gofundme parody is hilarious

I too feel for Fed Ed's kids, not so much his wife. He traded his family's future for his greed and ambition. She co-operated and facilitated.
