Some people have way too much money, a lady just won dinner with Palin on an e-bay auction with a bid of $63,500. Plus she has to provide her own transportation there & back. It was a good cause but she could have just donated, her being a defense contractor must be pretty lucrative.

If you're like Bill Gates does money even matter anymore? Think about it, he's worth more than lot of countries.

Yeah, I saw that on the news. I was wondering if that woman works for any activst groups, and is going to give Palin an earfull, the entire time they are together. :mad2: :blah: :poke: :taz:

I can`t even think in those figures, but if I was going to pay for a dinner with someone it sure wouldn`t be her.

Think Palin might actually show up, given her past history of blowing off speaking engagements?

I'm pretty sure that is a tax deductable donation. I'm amazed and disapointed that one can find fault with an act designed to help wounded veterans, just shows how hopelessly divided and hate filled this country has become.

Did they have Salmon? Hope so!
...... Lobster would have been more cost effective and helped out the entire Lobster Industries. Our fishermen could stand a break also. Go buy something from the Maine seas.

There is no problem with having way too much money as long as you earned it. :P

Coaledsweat if you are referring to my post I gave credit for it being a good cause & she could have simply donated money to a good cause. IMO most if not all defense contractors are abuseing the system (the system being taxpayers) with cost over-runs & in the case of hali-burton no bid contracts & it goes on & on. I was just saying how I felt about Palin, she wouldn`t even fulfill her obligation as governor. One of the last things that I saw her say as gov. was that Washington could keep their money, Alaska doesn`t need it. So far Alaska has been one of if not the biggest users of the stimulus bill.

No, I saw a thread about this on another board before I got to this one. I think some of the vile stuff was still stuck in my head when I made the post.

I wonder what the expense ratio is here.

Did Sarah Palin get an honorarium? Did she and Todd fly commercial or private to the event? Did the rest of the family come? Where did they put them up?

Many of these celebrity charity events end up costing almost as much as they raise.
