Well aren't you special?! Couldn't find any deserving American recipients, huh? Why not tone down the self-congratulations until you folks can get your nationalist priorities in order?

Nobody outside the Order of Asshole Buddies is as impressed with your good works as you folks seem to be, and since bragging about it seems to be just as important to you as doing them, well then why not spread a little benevolence here at home. You know, with the unfortunate Americans who have to put up with your ill-mannered asses. Your merit badge society is widely regarded as the Scientologists of tiki: the perpetual drunk uncles who are culturally (and I suspect genetically) incapable of enough self-awareness to know how embarrassing you are to your families. I suppose that's why you feel like you have to beat off here once a year—because you can't get your wives to do it. If you could figure out how to bake cookies, at least you'd be as useful as Girl Scouts. Have a great day! :)

This is why I am proud to call myself Moai!

We have a party, spend time with friends and family, and turn that into sending people to school! Party with a Purpose!

Not a bad bit of trolling there….. I give it a B+.

I would list the charitable stuff the F.O.M. does in the U.S. of A. but I am guessing he won't be back to read this thread again.

Just...wow. Looks like he may have been banned for it? Is his message staying up as a warning to others?

I heard there was some "turf war" between FOM and TC, but I had no idea of the level of animosity.

Like five years ago maybe. Some folks just can't let go.

We never figured out why he feels (felt?) the way he does.

And it is funny that you asked about his dog.... the South Florida chapter of FOM devotes all of their charitable efforts to animals. The Broward Humane Society and Gumbo Limbo Nature Preserve are the big two. So even if we did run over his dog we would have the connections to take care of his dog, or at the very least get him a new one.

'meh.... whatever.

Anyway..... join us at Ohana this year and you can have lots of fun *and* be a part of the next round of EIF scholarships!

I checked out the work you guys (FOM) do. Sounds like a great way to have fun and do some good at the same time. I'm not sure what White Devil's tirade was about, but it sounded like a bit of nationalism to me. Eh, whatcha gonna do?
