Fake and Rake

"Fake and rake” is a scam where someone fakes something (for example, a disability) in order to rake in the money. “Sophie Maxwell must realize that her days of faking and raking in thousands are over” was cited in 2009. “Fox News talking heads, whose reason for being is to ‘fake and rake.’ Fake ‘em into a lather, and rake in the bucks from campaign contributors and advertisers” was cited in 2010.

The fat, inept, ignorant, and very arrogant cow - Sophie Maxwell must realize that her days of faking and raking in thousands are over. Her rejection at the SF Board of Supervisors was a blow from which this fat cow - will not recover and rightly so.

First, the wiring of the right-wing brain: how Republicans too often think that “beliefs” and “facts” are interchangeable and therefore they don’t have to accept reality as it evolves. It makes ‘em easy pickings for right-wing politicians, talk radio hosts and Fox News talking heads, whose reason for being is to “fake and rake.” Fake ‘em into a lather, and rake in the bucks from campaign contributors and advertisers.

Hopkins Payback-faking and raking
I was glad I did not order the fight because of the last Mayweather fiasco that left a sour taste in my mouth but I was glad to hear that B-Hop and his cheap tactics were penalized and the ref had the balls to call the fight a KO. I thought the Ref should have DQ’d B-Hop during the Calzage fight, his attempt that succeeded to gain him rest by faking a foul that was apparently invisible

B-Hop may have been hurt but his history at faking caught up with him
