    I've been wondering that myself. It's supposed to be a fee to cover the broken contract of some model "well known on social media" of which he would then become her manager. No, he doesn't have any such management or industry experience and yes, I did tell him (among other things) that if she can actually rake in money there would be already be a line of experienced people competing for this open opportunity, and that a legitimate person would want to go with someone with a proven track record that could help her make money. I think/hope that's being mulled over right now

    So someone I know came to me with a vague story and is asking to borrow money for what really sounds like an advance-fee scam I told him it sounds extremely scammy and I'd help him try to prove it either way. It sounds to me like (like he said, he's been vague) that he's paid in some money and they've got him on the hook for more. The advice I'm looking for here is: 1) let's say I convince him it's a scam. Is it best to just walk away or play along with the scammers to the point of bringing in law enforcement to hopefully catch them and/or get back whatever he's paid in so far? 2) If law enforcement, who to contact? Just by googling, I came across the Attorney General of Michigan page and it seems like they recommend contacting the FTC (this person lives in Maryland, presumed scammer claims to live in Chicago). Putting aside whatever other crap the FTC might be in charge of, if law enforcement/protection of property is included in those responsibilities, that's a legitimate function of government so I don't see why not to report the incident to them. But will they actually do anything worth a damn? If someone happens to have a contact within the FTC that might go the extra mile, please send me a PM

Why Santorum is Ahead of Ron Paul & What Can be Done About It

On February 14, 2012 CBS Evening News reported "asked what qualities they looked for in a candidate, they picked moral character and values. Those are Santorum's strong points. Beating Barack Obama used to be the #1 thing people cared about, it's now the fourth thing they care about". That doesn't seem to be a fluke because exactly one month later CBS News Political Hotsheet was

The Department of Defense in 2004 released a report saying Muslims don't hate our freedoms, they hate our policies:


American direct intervention in the Muslim World has paradoxically elevated the stature of and support for radical Islamists, while diminishing support for the United States to single-digits in some Arab societies. Muslims do not "hate our
