Dilemma - Musings & Ravings

Dilemma
So... there is a new weight loss fad that I'm thinking might work for me. It feeds my gambling love by making me bet against myself for dieting.

It works like this; I put up a stake and everytime I blow my diet, I donate money to charity. Now, here's my problem - I can't just name my favorite charity. If I did, I'd start justify every candy bar as 'raising funds for my favorite charity.' I could choose my second fave because I actually hate giving them money. They do good work but they are driven by a group of people who, as a whole, couldn't do enough math to pass 8th grade. I hate rewarding bad behavior and bad fiscal management.

So, the idea of anti-charities arises. As a real punishment everytime I break my diet I could be forced to give to Pro-Life MN or Sarah Palin or PETA or....

Who can I name that is bad enough to keep me on task but not so bad that my failure becomes a crime against humanity?

Michelle Bachman? The Log Cabin Republicans?

Any ideas? Bueller? Bueller?

Is the 700 club still around?

All those listed are good ones to not give to.

How about the Phelpians? Fred Phelps' organization is horrid. Though Cliff says they fall into the catagory of "crimes against humanity" if you do blow the diet.

Is the 'crime against humanity' balance by their relative ineffectiveness?

That is pretty bad though.

I have to push for Michelle Bachman. Or, I was thinking the Scalia route and was wondering about donating to Opus Dei...

I think that anti-charities are like medication. If it's strong enough to heal, it's strong enough to kill. An anti-charity can't be both harmless and disgusting enough to be an effective threat.
