Make Some Money With Eugene Today!

By Loudoun Insider

So this is what Eugene Delgaudio does with all that money Pubic Advocate raises – pay people to show up to his rallies!

This email was forwarded to me by someone normally on ED’s side – all names have been kept anonymous to protect the innocent:

Hello all,

Here’s a chance to make an easy $150 while fighting the progressives in the great culture war being fought for the soul of America:
There’s an effort to influence members of Congress to support traditional marriage being led by the Executive Director of Public Advocate of the U.S., Eugene Delgaudio.
This will take the form of a rally on the steps of the capitol, and should take several hours including transportation to and from the Capitol.
We will meet at:
 5613 Leesburg Pike, Suite 17 · Falls Church, VA 22041
at 9am and will return to that same location at 1pm.  Anyone who shows up and participates will be paid $150.
This is an issue the libs lose even in blue states like California, and thus serves as a great way to recruit people into the culture war to save our great Republic.  The progressives wanted this fight; THEY started all this, now let US finish it.
Please respond if you’re interested.
This was sent to me last night but I just opened it this morning – too bad I didn’t get it up sooner, we could have helped deplete ED’s treasury a bit!

    Wow from me too – I thought this would have generated a few more comments!

    I think people just can no longer be surprised by ED’s ridiculousness.

  • JTHmishmash says:

    I wish I got that email!(They all go to my spam box) $150 to show up? I wonder how that benefits him other than the fact that a few people show up to his rally?

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    That would be pretty good money for a high school student, JTH! Send him an email and ask to be put on his special list of “volunteers” who show up to protest with him.

  • NateDogg614 says:

    Makes him about as good as the unions who pay people to protest in places like Wisconsin (or so I’ve heard).

  • AFF says:

    $150 for 4 hours?

    Methinks anti gay protesters would come cheaper.

  • The Bully Forum says:

    We have become deadened by the increasingly closed and tunnel vision corrupt Board of Supervisors. They are now requiring “media” and “community groups” to register before their information sessions on the Metro. I realize you don’t support metro and many do not, but this is intended to block out both non-supporters and discourages anyone from talking against it. Someone should investigate the courthouse grounds meeting. Despite the attorney saying that it was priveledge information, a motion is required stating the specific purpose of the closed “executive session” which they did not do. Nothing esle can be discussed other then the specific item listed in open session. Now with the closed comment section on Loudoun Times, the county is effectively silenced from speaking out against this corrupt board of supervisors. It will get worse as this year has proven. Just you wait…they will most certainly take this too far (as if they haven’t already). Someone’s going to jail this four years! Mark my words. All the talk of FBI investigations and other activities will be nothing when this Board is out. ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY.

    “Makes him about as good as the unions who pay people to protest in places like Wisconsin (or so I’ve heard).”

    Because hate mongering and labor laws are “about” the same?

    Labor got you a 40 hour work week, minimum wage legislation, family leave, etc. Eugene got you….? More cash for Eugene?

  • NateDogg614 says:

    mosborn, have you seen what’s been going on in WI by any chance?

  • mosborn says:

    Yeah…there’s a recall election of Gov Scott Walker. Supported in large part by organized labor unions in defense of collective bargaining rights. Rights that got you (and I) better working conditions.

    And I don’t see how that really compares to Delgaudio paying people to help him peddle his hate speech against gays (and others that he doesn’t like).

  • edmundburkenator says:

    “$150 for 4 hours? Methinks anti gay protesters would come cheaper.”

    The scourge of inflation has hit bigotry hard.

  • liz says:

    Also, the unions aren’t paying people to protest in WI. They ARE paying support personnel (people who bring food, arrange buses, permits, etc.).

    You may be confusing paying protesters with strike funds. One of the things union dues pay for is emergency wages during strikes. That way strikers aren’t starved into going back to work since they don’t collect wages from their employers while they’re on strike.

  • NateDogg614 says:

    “Also, the unions aren’t paying people to protest in WI.”

    Right. As far as we know.

    Yes, union dues pay for strike funds. They also bankroll Democratic politicians who continue to support the unions if and when they are elected. They’ve have a nice little agreement going on for quite some time.

    Nothing personal. I’m just incredibly cynical of unions — particularly the public sector ones.

  • liz says:

    Dearest ND,

    Unions bankroll Democrats because Dems stand up for workers, not unions. Workers. Creating safe work environments, demanding that people actually get paid for their work. Stuff that corporations hate. Which is why corporations donate to republicans. Because Republicans seem to think that getting paid for working is a communist plot or something.

    And, yeah, I know a lot of people in WI, some of whom are paid organizers, but most of whom are protesting because they can’t afford to lose their jobs, which Walker was cutting. No pay received, just there through desperation. All they got in compensation was pizza, bought by the unions.

  • NateDogg614 says:

    “Because Republicans seem to think that getting paid for working is a communist plot or something.”

    Hardly. What do you base that on?

    “most of whom are protesting because they can’t afford to lose their jobs, which Walker was cutting.”

    I very much doubt that Walker wants to cut jobs. If anything, job losses would guarantee not only that his people are out of work, but also that he would lose on Tuesday.

    The system is broken and the WI taxpayers are on the hook for it. This is one of the problems….NO ONE was sititng on the taxpayers behalf at the bargaining table. The reforms, as I understand it, have been working well and none of the hysteria that the union leaders or the WI Democrats have come to pass. Well, regardless, we’ll see what happens next week.

  • liz says:

    What basis do I have? The fact that Republicans sneer at workers wanting to get paid a living wage. Do you know how much a full-time minimum wage worker gets a week? $290.00.

    Could you live on that? Could you feed your kids? Could you afford your portion of your health insurance?

    Yet try to raise that minimum to something that people CAN live on and Republicans all over scream bloody murder, and claim that workers can negotiate for higher wages themselves. But God Forbid workers organize a union so that they have some bargaining power. And there’s more screaming about tort reform if a worker is cheated of his or her pay and takes the employer to court.

    And you ask me WHY I think Republicans think that paying workers is a Communist plot? Because you bloody well act like it.

  • edmundburkenator says:

    Labor does some pretty stupid stuff, so does quite a few board of directors. We need better of each.

  • NateDogg614 says:

    “Could you live on that? Could you feed your kids? Could you afford your portion of your health insurance?”

    No, but minimum wage jobs were not intended to be jobs that people would perform throughout their entire life.

    As it is, corporations do not stand to benefit if employees don’t get paid. If they have no money, then they can’t utilize the goods and services that corporations provide. Workers ought to have the right to join a union (although FDR was opposed to the idea of public employees unionizing) but they should also have the right NOT to join a union if they don’t want to, and they should not be forced to do so through bullying, intimidation, or “card check.” There ought to be more people getting paid based on achievement and merit, rather than a tenured system that keeps people around (including the incompetent ones) regardless of whether they do their job well or not. I don’t think anyone is looking to abolish safety standards as that benefits no one in the end, but the unfortunate reality is that if a company determined that it’s too expensive the produce in the US, then they will outsouce their work.

    “And you ask me WHY I think Republicans think that paying workers is a Communist plot? Because you bloody well act like it.”

    If you can cite for me a Republican who actually said that, then I will believe it. Meanwhile, since communist countries historically don’t pay their workers jack $h!* and take their personal property away, I somehow don’t think it would be a communist plot.

    Do you have a link or a quote? Or should I just take it at face value?

  • edmundburkenator says:

    Look at page 16 of his book “A Businessman Looks at Communism” or you can look at The New American here:

    http://www.thenewamerican.com/history/american/item/4825-fred-koch-oil-man-against-communism

    The New American is the John Birch Society’s magazine. You might like it Nate!

    I think most Birchers used to claim unions were communist plots, but I don’t feel like Googling every nutty rightist (who also happens to be a Republican).

    And Birchers are kind of a Cold War thing…

    I think Liz was kinda going hyperbole on you, but there are always nuts in both parties that can confirm the other nut’s conspiracy theory.

    Republican nuts, unfortunately, are a little closer to leadership at this time.

  • NateDogg614 says:

    I appreciate the link, although I’m not a nut, nor am I a fan of the John Birch Society.

  • liz says:

    I am looking for the precise quotes I’ve seen, from actual elected Republicans, who have been repeatedly re-elected. Hard when I don’t remember the precise words they used.

  • liz says:

    But you should take a quick look at the Republican Party Platform (at http://whitehouse12.com/republican-party-platform/) which is pretty clear about wanting to end rules about time and a half for overtime work, putting in tort reform to make it harder for wronged workers to get recompense from their employers, and etc.

    The line I like best is: “But because their Democratic donees currently control Congress, the trial lawyers are on the offensive.”

    Democratic donees are in control of Congress? Republicans have absolute control of the House, and a filibustering minority in the Senate. Or does the House not count?

  • NateDogg614 says:

    “Democratic donees are in control of Congress? Republicans have absolute control of the House, and a filibustering minority in the Senate. Or does the House not count?”

    No, from the looks of it, this particular platform was adopted in 2008. At that time, the Dems controlled both the House and Senate.

    Looks like they will need to update the party platform for 2012.

    I would say that the House certainly counts and that any minority in the Senate can fillibuster (whether the fillibuster can hold based on the size of the minority is another matter).

  • liz says:

    That’s what they still have up, ND. Not my fault they didn’t notice they won the House, for crying out loud.

    And, according to Boehner and Eric Cantor today, having control of the House doesn’t mean that they are leaders.

  • NateDogg614 says:

    Martin Bashir is a partisan tool and a shill for all things left of center. Not exactly a credible source of information from my point of view. His dozen or so viewers may disagree with me, but I frankly don’t care.

  • liz says:

    In what way is Martin Bashir’s credibility on point here? He is playing back Boehner and Cantor’s own words. Which match the attitude on the GOP’s own website. When your party is consistently saying the same thing in several places, and from several voices – that they don’t control anything even though they control the House – I’m wondering why you think that’s a problem with Bashir.

    Sounds to me like it’s a problem you might want to take up with your party instead.
