I just want to say for the record, I didn't send these guys any money and was only debating the merits of the action. actually I'm happy there are people out there more jaded than me. I thought that was an impossibility. never the less, if I was a billionaire I would hire the infamous south african mercenary group executive outcomes and have them hunt everyone of them down

First off all I wanna say sry for my bad english. African people have lived like this for many many years. In fact, the more we have helped them, the worse it gets. Why? Cause then a bloke finds out that "oh, look!!!! MONEY which I can get!".

Only way to "repair" Africa is by sending down US Navy to clear the country for people like that and start making big factories and give the people work.

But thats just my opinion. But hey, dident Bill Gates say he wanna do so there is no poor people in the world? :P

^^ bmwcoupeftw, you're on the right track......


The Atlantic, probably one of the most liberal and progressive magazines around, wrote a series of articles on the phenomenon of this 'video gone viral' and the group itself, Invisible Children.

They did an excellent job of exposing it for what it really is..... and how this sort of immature approach of trying to address complex issues ends up doing a lot more harm than any good. Central Africa is a complex place and has been historically. It's not something you can reduce down to a simple video and some wrist bracelets.

It's worth spending the time to read and exercise those brain cells.

if anyone wants to donate to help that area and don't want to donate to a guy who walks around naked and masturbates,
you can donate to this church
ginghamsburg.org
the work they do in Darfur is worthwhile and very helpful, take a look and see what they do for them.

They have built schools there,
built brick building businesses that the people there own to self support themselves (church doesn't take any profits)
taught them agriculture and set them up to have self sustaining crops, so they can continue to feed themselves.
built sever clean water wells.
The money that people donate to Darfur goes directly to Darfur and they dont take a cut of it (the church is sustained by the general fund) so if you want %100 of the money to go there it will.
They continue to lobby with our government and their government to improve the situation, but they take real action to help them.

this guy Kony moves in and out of the area in Uganda and Darfur. So if anyone really wants to help look into the missions ghinghamsburg church does and help out.

I like how the wife try to defend Jason by saying he does not drink or take drugs but he suffering from dehydration and exhaustion. I have seen people who are dehyrdated and exhausted and never seen they trying to get naked or whacking themselves off. Usually they incoherent and not doing much of anythings.

personally I think the guy cracked and realize his entire scam was coming apart on him. He probably never thought people would fact check him.

not sure if your being sarcastic or not, but there are no gold chairs at that church, they are very giving, not only with the work they do in Darfur, but the work they do in the community and other places in the US and world.
They give so much
I know there is a stigma with a lot of churches taking but his one gives out so much.

that is what the invisible children should be doing.

There might be a video surfacing showing him or an Executive producer joking, while chugging vodka, about keeping $900k from the donations. Lol. Don't know how authentic it is.
