Because the serenade requests are beginning.
First, let me say this. Fuck cancer. I don’t wish it on anyone. Ever.
Second. No one wishes to deny anyone a bucket list wish. It’s kind of a fun thing to have, actually. I’ve been talking with a relative about theirs lately.
Now, when it comes to THIS particular bucket list trip that is being requested? Oh boy. Where do I start?
What people do take issue with, is someone who has spend the last decade plus of their life SCREAMING about his alleged Parkinsons disease. The disease that supposedly makes him a poor, pitiful creature that going out into the cold could KILL him. The disease that seems to have MIRACULOUSLY resolved. Resolved so much that he’s moved, several times, all while claiming that he is too medically fragile to be responsible to answer a suit against him. While he sues other people, using Parkinsons as a crutch.
Most people don’t give a rat’s ass about whether or not someone has a bucket list. But when you expect generous people to fund your very expensive vacation, expect commentary.
There is a problem with Bill Schmalfeldt’s proposed bucket list trip though.
From the time the alleged trip will take, to the extras of a brand spanking new MacBook and a video camera, to the requested per diem amount and all of that jazz. It reeks of either a scam or someone who has a pie in the sky idea but has no clue how to pull it off in reality.
Add that to the history of the person making the plea, it just screams GRIFTING SCAM.
I hope Bill Schmalfeldt doesn’t have cancer. But even if he does, this trip – as he himself has presented to the public that he wishes to fund it – screams that it’s a scam. And people who view it are going to voice their opinions about it.
Deal with it.
