I think Jana and Nathan might actually be fairly suited to each other.  Jana can use her photo editing skills to add skirts and flowing locks to the upstart hussies who dare to wear shorts and a ponytail.

Bolding mine but can someone please tell me what "highly technical skills" they have? I mean I guess a couple of them can fly but what about the rest? What highly technical skills do Lawson or Jana have? 

Well, Jana's a concert pianist

And they are each the spawn of a family with 19 children...just cutting to the chase of why they ARE ACTUALLY famous.

I don't know just how far any of them went with the volunteer fire department training. At best some of them may have done EMT but have they kept it up? Even CPR? I fear their "skills" are proselytizing and grabbing stuff for themselves.

The Medic Corps website (produced by Johnson Marketing and Media who does Bates Sisters Boutique and other fundie sites) has a "how to support us" section.  There are three options with links:  pray, give, and volunteer.  But all three links lead to their donation page.  Don't try to volunteer or pray for them, they just want your $$$$$.

Damn, this really makes me livid. I was usually willing to give the 2nd generation of fundies a partial pass in terms of their beliefs - it’s all they really know, and practically everything/everyone they care about is wrapped up in the fundie culture. Even their “relief efforts” that mostly involve proselytizing, I can partly understand how they’ve been brainwashed into thinking they are really helping these people in the most important of ways - it’s complete bullshit of course, but I get how they’ve been conditioned to see it that way.

But this?!? If these allegations are true, this is criminal. And to perpetrate this sort of thing at a time and place where people have lost everything, are suffering and dying...it makes me sick. I’ve got half a mind to reach out to the few people I know who work in journalism to see if they can urge someone to investigate this further.

Backstory: when I was 15 I spent two weeks sailing through these very islands, including Hope Town where Dorian made its first landfall - so I have a bit of a personal connection to these places, my father even more so (he’s been there easily 5 or 6 times). It’s a beautiful chain of islands, and I have wonderful, vivid memories of the places and people. Anyone scamming these people at a time when they are incredibly vulnerable, can rot in hell as far as I’m concerned.

I'll pray. I'll pray that a bolt of enlightenment hits them, and they stop this rubbish!

Co opting Jesus or any other mainstream creator or deity for financial gain should be illegal. These people are not Christians. They at one time were Gothardites and have always worshipped at the altar of their own paternal fathers. Every time I hear the word Jesus come out of one of their mouths, it makes me ragey.

I think jerks like these do more to turn people away from Christianity than anything else.  Keep up the good work assholes.

Funny but also very true. So many people are so turned off by these types of Christian assholes. They are so oblivious that they have no idea that they are pushing people away from Christianity.

Showing up armed with badges and ignoring established entities already on the ground instead of asking how they could be of help reeks of arrogant great-white-savior complex and frankly, asshole-ism. 

It also means they ignored all of the institutional knowledge and protocol with a belief that they know best, meaning that some people in desperate need of assistance didn't receive it.

I was so angry at Anna's awful 'Trump 2020' post that I almost wrote to her thanking her and her community, as an atheist, for doing so much to create new atheists/ex-Christians. But I know these people love to feel persecuted, so I just ended up finally unfollowing them all on Instagram.

So it looks like MedicorpsCorps is no longer soliciting donations online.  Were they denied non-profit status?  Or are they just taking a tactical pause until they do?  Maybe the real MediCorps got pissed?

The stupid thing is, if they had just thought this through a more, actually came up with a real marketing campaign, and employed some basic PR skills, they could have made it work.  Oh, and something about not being jackasses in a disaster zone.

So this is one more example of Duggar half-assery.  I can't wait for them to open the RV park...?

Yeah, they seem to have disabled the "give" link. Before that, it was quite shrewd in saying donations would "support the team," not any actual effort. Duggars and Bates are the "team." Sweet Jebus I hope there is some way they got in trouble.
But they still say they do things like "Train and equip hospital staff bring up the level of care to first world standards." Guess Doctors without Borders can disband now; everything is in the good hands of the highly trained Arkansas constabulary.

Ha! That reminds me of the stupid excuse JB and Michelle used years ago when Josie had her seizure and people were asking them why they left the country and left Josie in the hands of teenagers. Parents of the Year claim they were their for some adoption emergency. God knows if El Salvador had an adoption emergency they'd bypass all the countries and organizations of the world to go straight to two idiots an Arkansas who won't even take care of their own kids for help.

JD is basically the family good guy. You can always rely on him for help. I bet he took on that role after Josh’s first of many issues. Since his older brother is a POS, he had to step up to the plate and it seems like he will do about anything for his family. Even the most moronic stuff. Like this whole fiasco.

That's why I am disappointed in him most of all, I didn't expect this from John. JimBob, Josh, even Josiah, but not John.

I can't believe I am saying this but I am a little surprised by the armed commandeering of supplies. Being generally useless in a disaster area and bragging in a very un-Christlike manner, I am not at all surprised by. Flat out armed robbery?! Yeah, way to tie J-Rod's funeral selfie for being flat-out monsters instead of settling for completely useless.

James Lea is now posting on Pickles’ page; Pickles has posted something claiming there was fisticuffs between James Lea and a MEDICcorpser, but the video was deleted. James Lea says that is fabricated.

Pickled is so fn lame.  She deleted everything and said James was being aggressive.  So, I couldn't read any of it to see for myself.  That's ok, I wholeheartedly trust Pickled is right and this is in all our best interests. /s

That woman sucks!

Their website says they are still pending 501(c)3 status. Can you ask for donations while your status is pending?

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞

      Do I wear it?
      i was given a vintage, 70 year old mink coat. It fits like it was made for me. Somehow my cousin, who is 8 years older than me came into 3 gorgeous fur coats from a granddaughter of a woman her mother knew. We’re talking women who died in the mid 60’s.  None of them would fit her or any other of the women in my family. Yay for essentially being a ball. Everyone else is about 5’7 or more and all outweigh me by 50+. 
       
      it is just gorgeous. What women in Skokie and Highland Park many years ago, when I still lived there would call a “serviceable” fur. It was the fur they’d wear to a good restaurant, but not the opera or symphony.
      do I wear it? I’d love to, and I live in hunting country so fur isn’t looked down on. But is it wrong?  Arrrgh god its pretty.

      A modern day love story: Guy reaches out to you, you think he's cute so you start talking to him, give him your number. Guy then messages if you're free, you reply yes, guy never responds again. Love that. 👌
