Skip to comments.Elizabeth Warren and Me (Amazing True Story of How a Freeper Gave PayPal a Kickstart)

Elizabeth Warren was recently handed yet another expensive bureaucracy to lead (although not formally so as to avoid an embarrassing Senate confirmation) in the form of the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection. You might as well take the $500+ million this will cost the taxpayers each year, pile it up, and torch it for all the good it will ultimately do. As was the case with TARP, the Obama Stimulus that stimulated nothing productive, and a host of other costly programs, this latest bureaucratic incarnation is likely to do little for the public.
It is my contention that your humble correspondent has done vastly more to help the average consumer (at no cost to the taxpayers) than Elizabeth Warren can ever dream of doing from high atop her academic ivory tower. Yes, you read that right. Let me explain...

Oh, and I humbly submit that, as a result, I did more for the consumer (at much less cost) than Elizabeth Warren can ever hope to do.
I bet you guys didn’t know this about ol’ PJ.
Bump for tomorrow...
Any compensation for this? Please don’t tell me they gave you coupons instead of cash....
No coupons. They lifted the limit for me on how many referrals I could get compensated for. That was it.
Cingrats, Did they at least give you a bonus?
Souds like you got the short end of the stick...
That Dry Hair Treatment is actually the BEST treatment for dry hair out there. Emu oil. Prevents bad hair days for days at a time. I was once in a situation where I was unable to access a shower for 4 days and my hair was still fine after all that time. Unfortunately, a lot of folks have a problem with putting “bird oil” in their hair so I am now the only one using it. And the bottles do say “PJ’s Dry Hair Treatment.”
Maybe but back then I was just anxious to use PayPal in auctions and collecting referral fees that I didn't think in those terms.
With Elizabeth Warren the taxpayers will be getting the short end of the stick.
Not more influential but I sure did a lot more in the long run for the consumer than her. That wasn’t my intention but that is how it turned out.
You are an AMAZING person, PJ.
Well, thank you for your ingenuity. Perhaps you should start your own consulting firm.
The first thing I would do is consult fast food companies to add a certain food to their menu. It would be a HUGE hit for sure in places like the midwest...after a name change.
