Actions speak louder than words.

Well done

He could have donated that money before the bet...

Hopefully that isn't the case...

Then how is it that the amounts and recipients match what Jaybro first requested on November 8? He even threw in another $100.

"Then how is it that the amounts and recipients match what was only requested a couple of days ago? He even threw in another $100."...



They DON'T match...

Even your post above proves that...





Bet = $5000.00

Amount posted = $5100.00




Apparently unlike others, I am not one to QUICKLY forget how much MANIPULATING that dude attempted...

Just NOT someone I will EVER quickly believe...

At least not without absolute PROOF...



But again, this is JUST my opinion and it holds ZERO weight...

So don't anyone get their panties in a fuking bunch please!!!...

I am sure it took a thousand years for the first homo sapiens to learn how best to communicate face to face.

Do you suppose it will also take us a thousand years to figure out how to use the internet?

Well stated, John!

More importantly to me, well done, Jeff!

Locker they are for the same recipients and for the same amounts, only with the contribution rounded up to the nearest hundred.

If he'd made only the minimum contribution called for by his bet, he would have given $1,666.67 to each. Instead he gave $1,700 to each.

All that proves is that he is generous.

Granite...

Don't get me wrong...

I HOPE he has in FACT made those contributions and has fullfilled his BET...

But again, I am NOT one to QUICKLY forgive and forget...

LOST TRUST is VERY HARD to regain...

Thing about fatty is he seemed infected with internet Troll syndrome and had too much time on his hands.

Every time I heard of someone meeting him in person.. at face lift or whatever they had good things to say about him.

SO perhaps it's best for him and us if he stays off the net but I'd like to meet him sometime for sure.

Anycase damn solid to give in a way that has a real chance of changing/saving lives. Good causes there.

Considering that Greg Barnes and Chris Mac (ASCA) and Werner (YOSAR) view these pages frequently, a falsification of this information would be pretty stupid, and very quickly revealed.

Fortunately for me I have not needed the services of YOSAR, but I have benefited from ASCA (and also done replacement work using materials provided by them) so I'll say Thanks, Jeff!

I personally would still like to see DATES attached to those donations...

Thanks Jeff,
The replacement is the easy part. The money for the hardware is the hard part. It's people like you that make it all come together.

One can always ask and be with certainty that this type of request is reasonable. By IRS rules a charitable fundraising group can expense out 90% of it's donations leaving only 10% for the nominal purpose. Where can the 90% go? Administrative salaries. Get it?

And your point is?

I ran a "not for profit" 501.c3 in NY back in the 80s. It was a chamber music group. Most of our donated and earned income went to salaries, our salaries (the musicians.) Our purpose was to perform music. We paid ourselves to do so.

I do know 1st hand that asca is a very lean running organization.

Jaybro, get an email from Fatty about the election results.

That's what I want to see.
