Thought for the Day

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.

    What’s the big deal?! I crash Beartoons all the time! What do you have for snacks in this joint, Bearman! 🙂

  5. 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.

  6. Its great you’re looking out for folks like this Bear

  7. So they kept the money?

  8. 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.

  9. Very thoughtful of you Bear, but those two sly foxes can obviously take care of themselves.

  10. 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.

    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:
