FIFA Opinion

June 3, 2015

This guy here, he gets it.

“So much of our corruption is in plain sight these days. The events of the last decade lead invariably to the conclusion that in every booth on the midway every wheel is conspicuously rigged.”

You’re welcome.  – The Cheater

Cheat Dump

June 1, 2015

It’s a new month, and time to reflect upon some great cheating.  We all know about the headline grabbers – like FIFA and the NFL and the billion dollar election and the big big bank settlement (if not, be sure to follow our twitter) – but here are a few under-the-radar schemes you may have missed.

Run For The Money

May 4, 2015

On the latest entrant into the “raise your profile for book deals and speaker fees event” (a.k.a. Running for President 2016):

Carly for Prez!!
When @CarlyFiorina drove HP into the ground, her severance was *only* $21 million.
A man would’ve gotten $28M.
In fact, he did.
@MarkVHurd followed her & got a $28M severance.
75 cents on dollar, ladies.

Hey Cheater, why did your book start out focused exclusively on the financial industry?

The Cheater Says: Because I have a job alert set for ‘Satire’ and this came up one day:

For real$.

High Altitude School Cheats

March 10, 2015

Facts:
– “Teach” is just an anagram for “Cheat.”
– We must cheat poor people in order to stay rich.
– Aspen is full of rich people.

With that in mind, The Cheater wrote this opinion column about the AP History revisions for The Aspen Times: Kid’s Today

Snip: … By teaching kids to become unquestioning cogs in a massive economic machine, we’ll remove critical thinking from their brains, leaving room for more exceptionalism, more patriotism, more America.

After all, “more” is just an anagram for “Rome.” And don’t we want our children’s future to burn as brightly as the great Republic of Rome?

The Cheater Says: Apparently, I love anagrams.

Cheat Dump

February 26, 2015

It’s February… do you know where your cheaters are?

A-Rod Shows Up To Camp
The Cheater Says: Exhibit A for the age old argument that it pays (and pays and pays) to cheat (and cheat and cheat).

Artist Creates B.S. Pyramid Marketing Scheme To Sell His “Art,” Ruin Society
The Cheater Says: I shoulda created a fake market and fabricated demand pricing for my book. Oh, wait, I did: In China.

Climate Scientist In Hot Water
The Cheater Says: Ha! No, seriously, he’s ethically compromised and totally de-legitimized an entire political argument, all for money, which is not surprising and kind of awesome and the American way! USA! USA! USA!

Morgan Stanley Agrees to $2.6 Billion Settlement for Role in Housing Bubble
The Cheater Says: Not even a slap on the wrist. More like a nice silver bracelet on the wrist, a hearty handshake on the wrist, and a “keep it up, cheater” on the elbow.

Do Your Cheat

January 21, 2015

The Cheater is, obviously, a very big New England Patriots fan. Has been for life. So all he has to say is… “Go Pats” and the team’s 2014 slogan: “Do Your Job.”

Your job, apparently, is to cheat. Yay.

The Kids Are All Cheat

October 9, 2014

The wee children over at Fuse TV wanted to know how to raise a quick couple million – for something called a Wu Tang Clan (?) – so who’d they ask for advice?

The Cheater, of course.

Watch and learn:

Another Book Spreads The Cheat

October 3, 2014

The Cheater has published a provocative and profoundly important call to arms in the new book, “Laughing Liberally: Letters to the American Voter”

Per the publisher:
“A compilation of 12 essays that are political, provocative and hilarious, “Laughing Liberally: Letters to the American Voter” has arrived just in time for the 2014 elections–a perfect escape from campaign fever, or an early holiday gift. With topics ranging from the Right-Wing War on Women to Islamophobia, corporate greed to Congressional corruption, “Laughing Liberally: Letters to the American Voter” is funny, ferocious and festive fun. Get your copy today.

The Cheater Says: See if you can guess which piece is mine.
Hint 1: It’s in bold italics above.
Hint 2: It’s the force of nature which will bring America – or at least the cheating, rich, corporate Americans who really matter – back to greatne$$.
