Change = free money

I don't know how to do a screen grab, so this will have to do.

To the right of a Google search, this was the sponsored link:

Obama Inaugural Speech
  1. Change is on its way with Obama.
    Start applying for free money.

There's simply no explaining Google Ads. I once Googled "Ethics" and got an ad promising the "best price on ethics available anywhere."

Which would be funny if it wasn't so sad.

Anyway, isn't this just another ad for that infomercial clown in the green question mark Riddler jacket and nerd glasses that's been promising you can retire from working and live off of government grants? If so, it's worth noting that he's been doing that for decades and this is just his new angle...

Popped up on the ads of my Facebook homepage:

Free Government Money

Our government gives away 10 billion dollars a month in grants, funded by your tax money. Click to learn how you too can get a grant.

Takes you to a site called "qualifyforgovernmentgrants.com"

A different website apparently put up by the same goofuses...

Now I have to go wash my computer screen.
