Does Your eBay Purchase Fund Illegal Aliens? Sadly, Mine Did. Check This Out . . .

By Debbie Schlussel

Does your eBay purchase fund illegal aliens, jihad, or something else similarly nefarious? Sadly, I learned that one of my eBay purchases recently funded the aiding and abetting of illegal aliens, and I’m none too pleased.


Recently, I purchased a World War II bumper sticker on eBay. When I received it, the letter below accompanied the purchase. I’ve redacted the seller’s name and identifying information only because eBay has rules against outing people or using information you learn about them from buying and selling. And I don’t want to get kicked off eBay. I spent less than two bucks on the item, so it’s not like I helped illegal aliens all that much. But still, I’m miffed. Read the letter . . .


(The pics at the end are part of the letter.)

The man who sent this to me appears to be a retired old man who actually thinks he is doing some good in the world by using his eBay store to fund illegal aliens a/k/a “migrant farmworkers and families.” I doubt all of these “migrants” are actually farmworkers anyway. But I’m saddened to know that my money is going to aid and abet the continuing invasion and infiltration by illegal aliens into this country.

Is your purchase funding them, too? Is it funding jihad? I’ve learned that there are some weird sales going on in eBay, some of which may even be funding Islamic terrorism (which would be a nice, neat coincidence since a good chunk of eBay is owned by pan-terrorist Saudi Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal, a fan of HAMAS, who donated to a Palestinian terrorism telethon during the siege of Ramallah, at the height of Palestinian homicide bombings in the early 2000s).

While most sellers on eBay are just trying to earn some extra money to survive and pay the bills in this Obamaconomy (and for others it is their full-time income), some sellers are not okay. And they give their profits to untoward causes.

I guess I should be at least happy that this guy told me where the money is going, as opposed to most of the others who don’t tell you. Thank Heavens for small favors.

Now, I know what they mean by “ignorance is bliss.”

Know where you money is going.

What a eye opener. I never buy anything off that site, but thinking about how many do and really don’t care sucks.

This is how Christians can stop gays from violating Christian beliefs. “Thank you for ordering your Wedding Cake from our bakery. Your transaction will help us fund Religious Freedom legislation we support. Thank you, and ..” etc etc Tell them upfront that proceeds from LGBT staged political elbow bending will be donated to the (name your freedom charity). It’ll stop right doggone quick.

Jack on September 8, 2014 at 6:00 pm

    Excellent idea! Here’s another great idea, for consideration:

    Add (1) quart of Tabasco Sauce to the “Wedding” Cake (after you graciously take the order, with a smile and a “Thank You!” of course). That will “spice up” the “Wedding” Reception real well! and — it provides the additional perk, of the “secret sauce” only being discovered once the Reception has already begun — thereby, making it too late to remedy the situation by virtue (sorry for the use of that word, in this context) of getting a replacement Cake! It truly WILL make it one hell (now THAT word IS appropriate, in this context!) of a “Wedding” to remember — yes? Sure — you’ll lose the future “patronage” of the LGBT freakoid “Community” — but that’s the point, anyway! So it’s actually not only a “two-fer,” but a “three-fer!” LOL

It is nice to know that your purchase has made life easier for a “Drug Mule”.

Don’t worry one day one of his grateful beneficiaries will repay him or somebody he knows. Money well spent.

japple on September 8, 2014 at 7:41 pm

Sorry, not much sympathy to spare any more for people who should know better 10 times over. Kansas went bye bye a 100 miles down the road

japple on September 8, 2014 at 8:03 pm

Sorry patience is worn out now.

japple on September 8, 2014 at 8:05 pm

There’s an eBay giving fund that non-profits can sign up for. I always donate a percentage of my sales to Chabad of Simi Valley, for instance. You can look up who you want to give to if you so desire and if someone is donating a percentage of their sales yp an organization, it’s listed on their listing page.

In Debbie’s case, the old guy just does it (supposedly) on his own and spends the money he makes buying these shoes – not much you can do about that other than letting the seller know that you won’t be buying from him again, and it has nothing to do with eBay.

DS_ROCKS! on September 8, 2014 at 9:03 pm

Time to dredge up one of my favorite old sayings, the immortal words of Jimmy Hoffa. Sorry folks, but I haven’t said it in a while, and there might be some gnu folks here who never heard it before.

“Sooner or later, everybody does business with everybody.”

That’s why world culture is so filthy nowadays. NO principles.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on September 8, 2014 at 9:22 pm

Wow. On one hand an individual has the right to do as he wishes with the money he earns, but if the amount and timing of a donation is connected directly to the sale it really should be made clear on the auction page before the transaction is at all completed. If it’s a political cause, regardless of which side, it’s only right to make clear that somebody’s money could be going to a cause antithetical to their views.

Even if it’s something not political or controversial, it really should be made clear to which charity the money is going. There are many very good causes that are supported by not so good charitable organizations…

As Jack said above: watch Christians do it with Religious Freedom charities or pro-life organizations and eBay will lay down immediate regulation before the next $3 Chinese made USB mouse is bought.

Brian R. on September 8, 2014 at 10:07 pm

I once was an Ebay power seller and I think that possibly if you sent an email or made a call to the powers that be at ebay, they could start making sellers post that information in their ad BEFORE you make a purchase rather than after. They do have some rules about certain things. Used to be some sellers would add customers to their mailing list and ebay put a stop to that pretty quick. Getting something like that with my item after I purchased would piss me off.

Laura S. on September 8, 2014 at 10:08 pm

First, a general tip for online shopping, eBay, or not. Always be aware of the return policy and be sure you’re comfortable with it, regardless of the reason why you might want to return an item or items.

Second, merely because Al-Waleed Bin Talal owns stock in a particular publicly traded company doesn’t mean you are funding terrorism. Yes, Bin Talal has shares in eBay. He also has major positions in Citigroup, Pepsi. Walt Disney, Apple, Hewlett-Packard, News Corp, Priceline, and Time Warner–to name some of his largest publicly traded stock holdings. But those companies aren’t giving their cash directly to Bin Talal. He only benefits if those stock prices rise or through the dividends that those companies may pay all shareholders. And those stocks are also in the S&P 500, so if you own an index fund replicating the S&P 500, as many investors do, you are also investing in those same stocks.

On the other hand, for Bin Talal’s private holdings, you ARE, in effect, funding terrorism if you buy products/services from any of his private enterprises. For example, Bin Talal owns the famed Plaza Hotel in New York. This was the hotel celebrated by Neil Simon in Plaza Suite (the play and movie). In this case, if you stay at that hotel, you’re funding Bin Talal directly. So be sure and skip that place. I prefer the Waldorf Astoria anyway, even though I’m, in effect, funding Paris Hilton. That’s still a better option.

And, of course, everybody should realize that if you’re paying your taxes to Uncle Sham, as most of us do, we are, in effect, unfortunately funding terrorism too. For example, the US gives more than $400 to Hamas and the Palestinian Authority every year. So remember the wise words of a great TV showman from yesteryear: “I’m proud to pay taxes in the United States; the only thing is, I could be just as proud for half the money.” ~Arthur Godfrey. Take every lawful tax deduction you can.

@ Alfredo from Puerto Rico “That’s why world culture is so filthy nowadays. NO principles”

This is a might arrogant thing to suggest; your culture is the only non-filthy culture out there. Maybe that’s why the world is so filthy, NO Humility!

MrBigBrain on September 8, 2014 at 11:33 pm

What’s my culture, Mr.BigBrain? Can you honestly tell me you can look around the world and tell me where peace, serenity, decency, good will, and a sinless society prevails? The Bible says that Jesus will return only after certain conditions are met. One of those is that “the full measure of sin” will be reached.

This present world culture is filling up the cup at a more rapid rate than ever. THAT was hard to understand in what I said, and what I’ve said in the 20 months since I’ve been on here??? If you’re someone who’s been here under another name, you’d know that about me. If not, you still sound savvy enough to have read enough of the regulars to “know” us as well as anyone could “know” anyone in this type of realm.

SO, . . .

why are you trolling ME? I know I’ve got a pretty fine ass and thighs for a guy, but this is ridiculous.


Alfredo from Puerto Rico on September 9, 2014 at 12:58 am

@ Alfredo from Puerto Rico. Do not flirt with me. I think it is disgusting and sick. You asked me a question, so I will answer. After discovering that you have a habit of making every topic about Blacks somehow, you have been red flagged in my head.

When I click on an article and I see your name and comment, alarms go off and read what you have to say, making sure you’re not at it again (telling un-funny watermelon jokes) and if I find something you typed, foolish, then I will tell you so.

I have the biggest brain in the room and I troll no-one. I do not suffer fools.

MrBigBrain on September 9, 2014 at 5:35 am

    I guess if you have such a “Big Brain,” you must correspondingly have a pretty big ass, too — right? Because from the content and spirit of your Comments, it seems to me to be the location in which your “Brain” (so-called) is housed.

    Still Educating the Idiots on September 9, 2014 at 11:09 am

    Go find it. Go find the links where “I have a habit” of slamming blacks. I don’t slam blacks. I’ve been a LOT kinder to blacks than many others here, including some regulars. I’ve seen outrageously racist comments here posted by people in my 20 months on the site. I have NEVER engaged in such things.

    What I have done is lament the condition of the black community in America on a FEW RARE occasions (compared to my volume of posts) by pointing out the group-think mentality that exists, which NO ONE CAN FACTUALLY DENY!!!

    As for flirting with you, are you serious? Can’t you recognize caustic sarcasm when you see it? You are deliberately trolling me despite the existence of true racists on this site. I have never put up the comments that certain others have, which run from heavy implications to outright bold statements about blacks being intellectually inferior, NEVER.

    YOU, whoever you are, have chosen to have a problem with me, for reasons other than the ones you state. If you were intellectually honest, you’d have problems with a lot more people than just me, and you’d be trolling them equally.

    Alfredo from Puerto Rico on September 9, 2014 at 11:16 am

      As for my comment about watermelon, that was made on the heels of poking fun at my own people and after you popped up, Mr.BigBrain, on your first trolling effort at me. I was tweaking you. Ever heard of that? You started this, buddy, not me. I’ll be looking for you to take REAL racism to task the next time one of the regulars posts something similar to what I have seen said about blacks on this site many times before. I’ll be waiting, . . .

      but I doubt you’ll say anything when that happens. You’d have too much work on your hands.

      Alfredo from Puerto Rico on September 9, 2014 at 11:21 am

    Now THAT’s what I call humility.

    MrBigPain “I have the biggest brain the room”

    japple on September 9, 2014 at 12:57 pm

      Mr.BigBrain should stick around and get to learn the players and personalities. I don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater. There are people here who have made what I consider to be surprising statements, even downright racist, but whom I consider to be major contributors, because of the thrust of the majority of their remarks.

      I don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater. I don’t like everything everyone says, and I don’t like everyone here. I don’t like everyone’s approach sometimes, even those I like. That’s just like my real life. There are people who are best friends of mine, beloved relatives, but with whom I have extreme disagreement to the point of abhorrence sometimes.

      But I still love those people, and it doesn’t affect the overall tenor of our relationship. It’s called getting along. A web site is not something you learn how to get along on overnight. Every situation is different.

      What I DON’T do is appoint myself as having the biggest intellect, or most sensitivity, most insightful, then red flag certain people, and commence firing like some sniper gone wild.

      I have another post I put up a couple hours ago, but it doesn’t seem to have cleared yet.

      Alfredo from Puerto Rico on September 9, 2014 at 1:37 pm

    Lol, Big Dumb Dinky (BigD) in his new guise as MrBigBrain actually thinks he’s smart. AND, he thinks Alfredo is flirting with him!

    Skunky, please put this guy in his place. He flirts with you seriously and shamelessly, then goes postal with Alfredo!

    skzion on September 9, 2014 at 1:52 pm

      Thank you Skzion, for giving me the heads up on Big, Dumb Dinky’s NEW handle!

      Let me assist you and also remind others that BDD is NOT intelligent, is a jive-fool, and has NOTHING to add to the marketplace of ideas. His brain is only big in a room full of Lobotomy-acs!

      He’s got something VERY much in common with that pip-squeak Spike Lee thou’. A raging sensitivity (wrong and right) on defending the skin colour of Blacks everywhere.

      Peeps should have no time for that. He don’t care about righteousness and the truth. I can’t stand bigots like that NOW more than ever!

      Not once has he ever impressed me with his acumen. He’s tried, but a faker can’t fake brilliance. He’s just looking to kick up some dust instead of using a good opportunity to go in for the kill. Poseurs are like that!

      Skunky on September 9, 2014 at 2:27 pm

        It’s so nice to have you back, Skunky. While I have tried to be Skunky-esque periodically, I am a poor substitute for the real McCoy!

        skzion on September 10, 2014 at 3:11 am

          What a critic once said of Louis Armstrong can be applied to Skunky, as well: Easy to imitate, but impossible to duplicate.

          Welcome back,Skunky. For sure!

    For those who have forgotten about BigD, here is a link to some of his crap. He has an imaginery group called B.U.A.N. (Blacks United Against Niggas), but he continues to defend the niggas. He’s a dummy and a fraud.

    skzion on September 9, 2014 at 1:57 pm

      Thank you, and hopefully the two posts I put up earlier today explaining myself even more fully will emerge at some point. It takes a while, but they eventually go up.

      Alfredo from Puerto Rico on September 9, 2014 at 2:11 pm

When someone writes an article he/she maintains the idea of a user in his/her brain that how a user can be aware of it.
Therefore that’s why this piece of writing is amazing.

I would make a complaint to E-Bay that the person committing a fraud upon buyer because they do not reveal what they plan to spend the money on. It probably wont do much but, at least its on the record.

Just testing to see what’s going on — I just “posted” a Comment (about 20 minutes ago) but it never appeared here — so I’m just trying this one out. This is just a test. If this had been an actual emergency, you would have been instructed where to tune in your area for news and official information. πŸ™‚

I live in the rio grande valley. BC/FS a department of health and human services rented a store in the strip mall where my business is located a year and a half ago. The store front is dark tinted and the only sign says “caution you are leaving your comfort zone”, i asked an employee what they did there and she cheerfully replied that they found safe places for the immigrant children to stay. So, our own government is employing people for the purpose of breaking its own laws and defying the will of its own citizens, and have been doing so for the past year and a half.

This is pretty crappy. Imagine purchasing an item and then being informed that a portion of your proceeds were going to Al Sharpton’s Struggle Against the Man Foundation.

Man child on September 9, 2014 at 11:43 am

You should really inform people beforehand where their money is going in my opinion. You can understand why he’s doing it but why not just move to Mexico and open up shop there

japple on September 9, 2014 at 1:05 pm

Remember that if you purchase anything from muslims, regardless of how much they may say they abhor “the jihadis” and want nothing to do with terrorism or harming/enslaving/murdering “the infidels”, if they are “good” muslims, they are required to give charity… and in doing so, they may inadvertently/unknowingly be giving part of their proceeds to islamic “charities” that are essentially fronts for terrorists…

unPC on September 9, 2014 at 1:48 pm

Of all peeps to send it to! Someone who knows the truth and is not gonna stand such nonsense.

Illegal aliens are bad enough but I want to know if I’m funding Jihad! It’s not always easy and I’d like some tips to know how to know.

This Spring I came across this Moooooooslim shop near where I was working. I noticed they had a handwritten note about ZAKAT and I wondered just exactly what charity the $$ was going to. It stated to people in need but Mooooooslims don’t see anyone more in need than a Jihadi. Most was written in Arabic and some in English, but it bcrapped on about how great “allah” is. Yeah, right!

I wanna know where that $$ is going. I was not successful in taking a covert picture of it as Moooooslims running the shop were in from and in back ALL THE TIME. I also noticed they also don’t charge sales tax on taxable items.

Believe me, I thought of calling the AG and filing a complaint but I’m in Moonbat Boston! Our current AG (who will most likely be the next Gov…our primary is TODAY, BTW) has on the record stated “Being illegal is technically NOT illegal” and being Boston, we looooove to pander to Jihadis.

I need to know how and what to do. I am sick of this sh**. I notice near all the collages the “full-blown Burka” has become more popular. Not just a hijab or niqab.

Skunky on September 9, 2014 at 2:07 pm

With Muslim charities who knows what terrorist activities your money will end up crowd funding and besides they usually only help fellow Muslims unlike an actual charity that helps people in general.

Avoid like the plague that’s probably under development as a biological weapon in Islamic State.
Alarmist but hey reality is pretty darn alarming.

japple on September 9, 2014 at 6:07 pm

@ Alfredo from Puerto Rico “You don’t recognize sarcasm…”

Yes I do, but I also recognize hypocritical sensitivity, you can make jokes at Blacks’ expense however you can cannot take some jostling? Methinks someone is a sensi as the president.

MrBigBrain is putting All of you bigots, complainers, hypocrites and whiners on notice. Your foolishness will be addressed.

MrBigBrain on September 9, 2014 at 6:20 pm

Ok… I haven’t been here all that long and I haven’t read all of y’all’s (I’m in the south)comments but I have read several. I have read some written by you that sounded articulate, agreeable and had valid points or info. By the same token, I have read several by Alfredo and must say the same about many of his comments that I have read. But your last comment prior to my reply here….”MrBigBrain is putting All of you bigots, complainers, hypocrites and whiners on notice. Your foolishness will be addressed.”….makes it sound like you’ve decided to take over a portion of Debbie’s blog here or become her comments police.

Laura S. on September 9, 2014 at 7:35 pm

    Laura, read what Skunky and I have posted about MrBigBrain (AKA BigD, AKA Big Dumb Dinky). In the past I have had “issues” with Alfredo’s proselytizing (which he has ended, except for the rare footnoting of Jesus, which doesn’t count as “sharing the good news”), but Alfredo has never engaged in anything as uncivilized as racism.

    Someone who changes his handle here is trying to escape responsibility for his previous behavior. In itself such an action indicts one’s credibility.

    skzion on September 10, 2014 at 3:27 am

@ Laura, not at all. I’m not the Blog police. I enjoy intelligence and have no patience for foolishness, that is all.

Now where the heck is Gerald?
