Bribing people to read the InstaPundit blogroll

MaxSpeak is having a "meanest comment ever on the InstaPundit blogroll" contest for $50. Well, I could use the money but I don't have the stomach. I guess I'll have to keep selling my dirty socks on Ebay instead.

Updated to add: This is the funniest shit ever. I needed a good laugh. Of course, it's kind of scary, too. I have heard lots of people make roughly this argument that is one of the contest entries:

If my son were black, I would give him a similar speech. I would tell him that life ain't fair and life ain't easy. If it were, then any a**hole could do it. But a**holes don't succeed. [Bill O'Reilly? -ed.] Hard workers do. And when you start out playing against a stacked deck, the LAST THING you do is make matters worse for yourself by acting like some f***ing moron at the drop of a hat.
Why don't so-called "black leaders" give the same kind of advice today? Yeah, son. Life is going to be tougher for you than it is for the rich white boy down the street. But don't b**ch about that fact. Become determined to overcome the odds, work harder, be smarter and want it more than he does. You're never a loser unless you decide to be one. You can win if you believe that you are a winner. That's your choice to make.


I have heard this argument to justify both racism and sexism. In the spirit of kindness, honestly, I have had older male relatives and other authority figures tell me this that unfortunately I'm a woman so I can't give into laziness. They insinuated or outright said that women make less than men because women are lazy. Every one of these men, to the very last one, has or had a wife who works full time for less pay than he does and when they get home from work, his hardworking ass parks in front of the TV while her lazy ass makes dinner, cleans, and generally does some child care. Women are lazy, so they make less. Simple, see?
I use sexism because the fact that it's nonsense is easy to prove in the very home lives of sexists. However, the same principle applies to black/white, poor/rich. I don't see any evidence that whites work harder, in fact, I see the opposite. And it's well known that the richer a person is, the less getting down on his knees and scrubbing he's going to do.
I guess I get annoyed by this argument because otherwise nice people have fallen for it.

I caught myself thinking force is the only these wingnuts will understand and felt really sick.

More topical, from workplace observations I've found that bigots tend to be repressed over-achievers whose "productivity" is self-defeating. They do a lot of things, but what they do has little value. It's work that shouldn't be necessary. They make things complicated seemingly out of the conviction that an harassed appearance makes them look good. When things crash and burn, they look for scapegoats. Anyone who fits their obsession du jour will do. It needn't make any kind of real world sense. I'd rather they just stayed home and smoked pot.

Hi,

I want to tell you something about making money.

Today I decided that enough is enough. I wanted to get past the scams. Not only for myself, but for anyone who is like me.

Can you make money on the Internet....... Yes, but it won't be easy.
If I say make money I mean enough money to live a comfortable life, I don't mean millions. It is true that people make millions on the internet but do you think after reading one eBook you can too? I'm sorry but that is not going to happen.

If you think my site will show you how to make a million in one month, sorry I can't help you there. If you think ANY web site can show you how to make a million in one month, believe me it's better to take your money to a casino. You WILL have better luck there.

I will tell you what my site is about. My site is about making money together.
I it is easier to make money with a group of people than to do it on your own.
Why? Because you can't know everything. Imagine a group of 100 people with knowledge of the Internet helping you to make money on Internet! Don't you think you have a better chance of making money? If you decide not too join, you will miss out on the best opportunity you had for a long time and for a long time to come.

If you are interested please visit:
http://www.mdb-marketing.com

Let me know what you think about this idea.

Regards,

Michel
PS I hope you don't mind me posting a comment on your Blog.
I want to go past all those scams!

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)

Hoodia Diet is the solution for safe weight loss. Hoodia Gordonii contains a natural active ingredient, P57, which has only recently been identified. The P57 works as an appetite suppressant.

Taking Hoodia Diet Tablets when you are hungry alleviates the feeling of hunger and so makes you less likely to snack between meals due to hunger.

The Hoodia Gordonii Cactus has been used by the San indigenous people of South Africa for hundreds of years as an appetite suppressant and thirst quencher.

Extracts from this succulent have shown in clinical trials on obese subjects to reduce caloric intake by 30% to 40%. Significant weight loss has resulted from such a drop in caloric intake.

Therefore, Hoodia is one of the best and most powerful natural appetite suppressant available, if used in conjunction with any diet. Hoodia will help you to stop snacking between meals. It will also help you to reduce the amount that you eat at meal times.
