This is wonderful! Perfect for those rubes who like parting with their money by feeling like they are sticking it to others. Another recent example is the Flynn defense fund.
A fool and his money are soon parted.
Pt Barnum was right.
I am starting a gofundme for a higher wall with sharks and lasers… standby for the link…
$2.8 million right now… This is fascinating…
This is a surprise? Those that sponsor the CEC have been fleecing the rubes for years.
The cost of the wall is projected at around $25 Billion, not $5 Billion. That would be about 137 years to fund the wall.
Now, now… They are planning to return every penny if they don’t reach their goal… or come close to their goal… or something…
Please don’t give your money to this.
My gosh…what a waste.
500,000 in an hour.
Now up to 3.3 million.

• How will we get the funds to the right place? We have contacted the Trump Administration to secure a point of contact where all funds will go upon completion. When get this information secured we will update. We have many very high level contacts already helping.
LOL… I am sure there are lots of “high level contacts” in the administration who will be happy to accept these funds…
• Republican Representative Steven Palazzo of Mississippi is introducing legislation to direct the Treasury Department to issue government savings bonds which would allow us to fund the wall this method. This is just one option, there are others on the table being discussed.
_• 100% of your donations will go to the Trump Wall. _
• We are working with a law firm on a legal document that will bind the government to using the funds for the border wall itself, nothing else.
That “legal document” is called appropriation legislation… Kind like the one they are trying to pass right now…
_• We will hold all funds and not release a single penny until we have all legal aspects covered to ensure our money goes only to the wall. _
• If we don’t reach our goal or come significantly close we will refund every single penny. We are working on a time frame to achieve.
Maybe they should set up a foundation… I hear Trump has time to start another one…
The idea is fine. It needs to be worked out with the administration first to see if it can be legally earmarked to that project and that it is under the control of the administration or at least some established trust organization…at least before they see any of my money.
It can’t be earmarked… GoFundMe makes the funds available almost immediately to the fundraiser…
What a sweet touch that the Senators were singing Christmas carols while waiting to vote on the CR.
I don’t believe @DougBH was talking about GoFundMe “earmarking” how the funds are spent, I believe he was talking about a legal requirement placed on the government by accepting the money that once the funds are turned over to the government that the government could only use the money to “build the wall”.
(Personally I don’t agree with “the wall” and think that we can have a greater impact on illegal aliens in this country by removing their ability to work (by going after employers), giving employers the ability to propertly screen employees (enhanced E-verify), removing access to social services (welfare, public schools, etc.), and ending birthright citizenship for those in the country illegally.)
People have long complained about the government taking “our” money. Now some of these same people have zero problem giving the government more.
Wait, wait. “Conservatives” complain about Democrats wanting to tax people more to give more to the government. Sounds like these godundme fools are in favor of this.
You are correct about what I meant. And yes, there are other things at least as important but some of which will never happen.
I assume you copied and pasted the words as they were written. If so, the grammatical errors and disruption in sentence structure makes it read almost as if an ESL person wrote it. This may be the next Nigerian Prince scam. And look who is being targeted. Lol
