Sold to a Fake Country:

1823, this guy, took their money and dropped them off in a swampy jungle ill equipped I presume.

Well they trusted in their money (at least bring a shovel) so I can't be too burned up.


Hey, this guy could have been Trump in his past life.

Can you imagine their chagrin when they finally find who they were going with?

I guess todays version of the scam might be something like getting investors to buy into a proposed new social media network that doesn't exist or similar 😎

I read the piece. Yeah, he was a real pip. Would have fit right in with the Trump administration.
I think Trump is more fortunate than that guy, but, think how unfortunate we would be.

That's not like dropping you off a boat in the middle of a mosquito filled Jungle.

Fake countries and selling bridges are just so last century. Today it's fake blood analysis machines and fake social media networks. What hasn't changed it seems is how gullible people can be when the fraudster is a great salesperson.

Well, he chose a Conservative Christian, but he screwed up by signing his tax cut for the rich.

So, no, they can't have their icon.
