Amazing what owning a business can do, even if it's not an active one.

Just got invited as an honerary chairman for the Florida delegation of the Business Advisory Council, which is going to have a dinner where the President will attend!

So, I realize that I'll probably be way the hell at the other end of the room, but DAMN that's cool!

Only cost me a small donation, too! (of course... )

NEATO, man!



ETA: Oh, and my name's going to appear in an ad in the Wall Street Journal!

Here's my 15 minutes seconds of fame!

Sure!

"Hey, Mr. President! 2WhiskeyP says 'Hi!'."

I'm sure he'll know EXACTLY who you are!

You should wear a bright orange 3 piece tux, maybe you will get his attention.

I doubt I'll get the chance to actually meet him (boy would THAT be SWEET!), but if I do, I'll pass the sentiment along...

Remind him of his veto power, for me.

How much is the donation?

Get pics if possible. I wish I were you. At least for the dinner.

Take an AR-15 buttstock and a silver sharpie and get him to sign it! That would be too awsome when you assembled it to a rifle!

If you get an urge to reach in your jacket to retrieve an inkpen - don't.

Less than half what they were asking! (Like a good greedy little capitalist, I negotiated. )

Actually, THEY came to ME and invited me. The donation was, of course, required, but the invitation came from out of the blue.

I got the same offer two years ago. They used to call me all the time till I told them I couldnt vote.

I think they ask everyone who has an S corp. I have one as a contract employee, I dont really have a business or create anything but my labor.

Dude, I'm going to make sure I don't have too much iron in my BLOOD, let alone my pockets!

That's some fame I'd rather NOT have.

Yeah, I'll tell them to piss off eventually. In the meantime, I figure I'll at least be able to get some networking and decent pics out of it!

We WILL expect pics! That's awesome, Zaph! And thanks for giving that small donation.

I was going to give what they asked, but since that was going to congressional races, I decided I'm going to give the balance to W for November.

Good grief, man! You want to get me shot?

I can just imagine explaining this to the SS agent by the metal detector.

"You see, Agent Smith, I belong to this website, and...."

No, no, no. Just take the plastic A2 buttstock with no hardware! You won't get shot that way!

Too late Zaphod, I imagine that the SS agents are already checking out this website and everything you have posted.

Once they realize you're a dangerous gun nut they won't let you near the pres.
