So this soulless goblin lobbyist Edwina Rogers wraps "speakers gifts" in money. She cuts the DOLLARS in half. can you imagine how many would have APPRECIATED and used the whole dollar?

Then towards the end of the video there's some Texan giving a creepy smile about living near WACO.





She was also featured on "The Real Housewives of DC" which in you can see how apathetic to any issue other than money.

LOL

Since when does money come in rolls like wrapping paper? Pretty sure it's just wrapping paper.

Edited for knee-jerk reaction. It's really money!

Doesn't surprise me...
The lady looks evil and will get her punishment when she meets her maker.

Wow some people will believe anything.

She tapes dollars together into a giant roll to wrap boxes?

Any one can buy sheets of money, it's marked up though.

BTW, this is a few years old, just sayin.

I edited my comment after I watched the video. Sick. Oh, it's okay to cut the dollars in half as long as the gift is small.


You're right in your title OP. I can't finish my lunch.

It's just paper that society puts value on. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Would you be more outraged if she was wrapping them with the leather skins of small animals?

God help the Republic....The smiles and lack of any sense of shame is what frightens me. When corruption and the worship of money reaches this level, bad things follow.

She might as well use it as toilet paper. Has she never heard of the word charity?? If she has that much money she could be doing some good for people in her community. Instead she uses it like this. It's just sickening that she has no soul.

This lady is breaking the law.

answers.google.com...

based on this law:


United States Code
TITLE 18 - CRIMES AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE
PART I - CRIMES
CHAPTER 17 - COINS AND CURRENCY
§ 333. Mutilation of national bank obligations


This twisted sister needs to serve time and throw down some of those not so hard earned bucks in payment of fine.


Whoever mutilates, cuts, defaces, disfigures, or perforates, or
unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill,
draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking
association, or Federal Reserve bank, or the Federal Reserve System,
with intent to render such bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence
of debt unfit to be reissued, shall be fined under this title or
imprisoned not more than six months, or both.
FINDLAW


Somebody here going to report her?

If thats real uncut currency, which is sold by the sheet by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing - she paid more than you might think for the "paper." Typically, the sheets are sold with a price tag significantly higher than the printed currencies "face" value on the page.

So while the image of her cutting up money as paper can be gross, I agree, she actually already spent more than that for the paper. Then again, maybe she has connections and got a discount.


Just an example of pricing can be found here:

I don't think the OP is stating that it's ACTUAL money, unless of course she works in the US mint. But the symbology is very apparent and the fact that she is a lobbyist wrapping a "gift" in money designed wrapping paper is in fact quite disgusting in a tongue in cheek way.


EDIT: after reading some of the responses, I cannot believe this is actual money
. I am at work and cannot watch the video but that is something else

How did you not know that? Just curious, because you know...you're sitting behind the accumulated wealth of almost all contemporary human knowledge. Some rich people actually go around with these rolls, cut out the money at the register, and pay for things that way. See Steve Wozniak.

Yeah, crazy how some people will believe anything...

Like that money is printed one at a time and not in sheets.

Am i the only one not pissed?

Everyone here is raging about her not donating to charity. I would suggest your hypocrites. Do you smoke? Drink? Spend money frivilously on things that do nothing to improve your life? Yeah, almost all of us do, unless your a quaker or Amish.

So, i ask you. Next time you get drunk, use that money and donate it to charity. Next time you buy a pack of smokes, donate. Going to spend $1000 on that new LCD 3D tv? Donate it instead, you dont need more than your old 32". Buying a gold ring or chain for yourself or your wife? Yep, dontate it. Our materialistic society has made people outraged at her actions, yet people do the same as her, just in a different manner.

3.16) Where can I buy uncut sheets of U.S. paper money? The Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) sells various sheets of uncut 1 and 2 dollar notes (4, 16, and 32 per sheet) through the mail. They cycle through the various Federal Reserve Banks over time. The cost varies from $10.25 (4 one dollar notes) to $79.00 (32 two dollar notes in a cardboard frame). You can order these from...


Order Processing Center
Bureau of Engraving and Printing
P.O. Box 371594
Pittsburgh, PA 15250-7594
+1 (202)874-3315
They take checks, Visa, MC, or money order.
Sheets may be ordered flat or rolled, and,
officially, take 4-6 weeks to ship but may vary
a lot more than that.

Im a lobbyist.

Here in Canada, i belong to a lobby group that among other things press the federal government to move towards posting balanced bugets among other things. Does this make me different from any other citizen of Canada? Perhaps i should hold myself to a higher standard, but i simply consider myself a citizen of a country i love very much.

Yes, i agree she should not have done this. It is crass and thoughtless, but i dont see it as being horribly evil.
