Noticed this ad this morning on Craigs List. They have been posting it for three days now. It sounds like a desperate plea for help in Ohio, or Virginia to me.

If my limited research is correct "Fair Share" is the Reincarnation of ACORN, in the Northeast.

Fair Share Housing, Fair Share Action, and Environment America Action Fund all seem to be related, but I can't seem to find out much about them/

Anybody know?

It looks they are offering slaves wages, and a slaves work hours, to reelect the Democrat massa's. How much of your tax money is going in to this?

"Get yo' FAIR SHARE!!!"

Soooo.... The party always pushing for high union wages is offering people 456 dollars a week to work 100 hours? Can you say sweat shop?
4.56 an hour? Isn’t that BELOW minimum wage and ILLEGAL???

More or less minimum wage for the hiring areas for a 40-hour week. Yet notice how they refer to them as internships. That means they are skirting labor laws, because this is clearly more than internship work.

$456 for 80-100 hours per week?

Apparently “minimum wage” laws aren’t quite as sacrosanct when they’re spending their own money.

Salaried Jobs - maybe that's the loophole? Paid by salary?

Get those Chicago buses full of drunks and welfare queens rolling for voting booths in WI and OH. We don’t need no steenkeen voter ID or it would suppress the illegal Democrat vote.

Craig’s List is a hangout for ne’er-do-wells and creeps of every kind...a logical place to post such a notice.

“More or less minimum wage for the hiring areas for a 40-hour week. Yet notice how they refer to them as internships. That means they are skirting labor laws, because this is clearly more than internship work.”

Laws don’t apply to DEMOCRATS, silly!
Note they call them “Directors”, as well?
Everyone is a director, so they can work all the hours they need them to, to skirt the minimum wage law.

Kinda like how everybody at Enterprise is an “Assistant Manager”.

Today they were going to have make budget cuts on their campaign if they did not get donations. Surely those foreign untraceable Visa’s were being used at breakneck speed.

If Fair Share has tax free status we do need to know who they are. 2008 Obama goons drove people to the polls, paid them with cigarettes and told them who to vote for.

This was Obama’s plea yesterday.
Friend —

How about Joe last night?

If you’re as proud of him as I am, let’s do what needs to be done in the final push — and let’s win.

This election could come down to what happens tomorrow morning.

My team on the campaign is about to make some of the toughest budget decisions we’ve had to make. This is one of the last chances we get to expand our ground game for the final stretch, and what we have in the bank at midnight tonight will decide how big we can go. And we need to go big — so I’m hoping you’ll take the next step in your support right now.

How much of the tax money that went to “Fair Share Housing” has been redirected to the campign through “Fair Share Action”?.

This has ACORN SCAM REVISITED written all over it.

In the debate Biden lied about the plan to tax everyone making over $200,000 ($250K for couples) by saying they would start their tax increases at $1 Million.

If they are reelected and implement their tax plan on all small business owners it will result in business closures and layoffs. That will lead to them needing to find other sources of revenue for which they are already floating ideas like a value added tax, federal level real estate transaction and auto sales taxed and more. The result will not be more revenue, but it will mean more people going broke. Government will devour us all and it won't take long.

It's time to plan for the worst.

Text printed on flyer our son found on windshield of his car parked in elementary school lot where he works:

"GOTTA VOTE: VOTE TOMORROW (10/11/12). Be one of the 1st Iowans to cast your ballot for President Obama and other Democrats. If you're not registered, no problem! You can register there, and you don't even need ID! Tell your friends and family about it, and help us move this country forward!"

At the bottom was, "Organizing for America." Voter fraud is going to be rampant this year. I don't think Auditor's offices are placing poll observers at these early voting locations - they can't be, they are EVERYWHERE!

How many people are on Free Republic?
What if we ALL applied for the job?
Bury them with useless applications.
It would make separating the wheat from the chaff
quite a task, they would have to hire more
people just to process the paperwork. (Evil grin)

From the job app page: In 2-3 sentences, tell us why you're interested in working on the campaign?*

I am interested because I believe in social justice. My goal working for you would be to help unionize your Work For Progress employees who working 40-60 hours a week overtime at less than minimum wage. I would be happy to quit my higher paying Chick-Fil-A job if it meant that I could bring the wages of all your employees up to a living wage.

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to your favorable response.

I use craigslist all the time. It is designed to be user-policed.

When reading the ad, look to the upper right. Click "prohibited". After a few different people click, the ad dissapears.

If everyone would flag them, these ads would disappear.

So do your part to take back the USA. Flag a commie craigslist ad.

Oh snap!! Fair Share sounds like Obama’s wealth redistribution too.

Let me see what the ACORN whistleblower says. Anita Moncrief. Love her!

Lucky for dems that the New York Times will be happy to gush over all the young people supporting Obama. That's a bunch that can be fooled all the time.

Somehow the New York Times and Washington Post will miss the story about dems having to hire their supporters. Well hire the the one's they're not paying off in other ways - with food stamps, disability, and insider news tips...

When you read this think about the scene in Godfather II where Michael is in Havana and watches the way Castro’s men go up against Batista’s men. “They fight because they are paid” he says about the government’s soldiers. “They fight for a cause” he says about the rebels. This is a paraphrase of course but the idea was that Michael KNEW the rebels would beat the paid troops. We will too.

Call this number and talk for a bit. At least until the other party hangs up.
