Let's evaluate the highlights in Casey's progress towards his 30-day goal, shall we?
Oct 4: Sink-Or-Swim declared.
Casey has $1000 in credit left, $300 in PayPal, $100 cash, and owes $65,000 on his cards.

Letsdoit! Itsallgood!
Oct 6: 7ForeclosureMistakes ebook ready for download.
Casey eventually gives up and just lets anyone download it for free. It's basically a laughable POS that's two years out of date and terribly written besides. He wants everyone else to proof and edit it for him for free.
Oct 7: Casey gets serious about earning money by putting up his Truth page.
Later changed to "Conspiracy," then "Conspiracy" with "and truth" cleverly concealed in the background. Black helicopters fail to swirl around and drop money on his motel room, but someone has to be a non-brainwashed news source, and it may as well be Casey. Responsibility lies heavy upon his shoulders.
Oct 8: Casey tweaks the sidebar, blogs about it.
Somehow, it generates no passive income. Casey is baffled.
Oct 10: Fraudcast! Barbeque!
Casey and Christsdummy do a talkcast on the eve of the Goldspring barbeque. Eager supporters fail to rush to the coffeehouse to press money into his hands.
The next day, Casey ambles off to Virginia City to avoid eating at a barbeque hosted by Goldspring. Transportation and lodging fail to be eclipsed by the income generated. GSPG continues to tank in the following weeks, despite having painted most of their equipment purple.
Oct 14: Ebook
The end result of months of work and a $65,000 investment of OPM is quickly leaked, and Haterz™ laugh themselves paralytic. $50 buys you a 19-page pamphlet that lacks a single word about avoiding foreclosure. It could easily be condensed to six pages. Most of it a sales pitch trying to convince the gullible to support his future endeavours. Casey is very proud of the cover, but apparently has never heard of a Photoshop layer mask, as the seascape just fades into the house and makes the whole thing look stupid. Casey claims to sell one at $50; at that rate, it will take him only two months to pay for one month at his present burn rate. No further sales materialize, and Casey later publicly doubts that he will work on it any more. 0% success for Casey.
He also feels overwhelmed. In other news, life is hard.
Oct 16: Talkcast the second
Surprisingly, the next talkcast still fails to make him any money. He defends his ebook, and claims (in a conversation with me) that he doesn't care if it gets leaked because people who want to support him will still buy it. No one stands up.
Comments on TC are disabled, and he blogs into a howling vacuum.
Oct 20-21: Truther and other drivel
Truthiness as an income generation tool has yet to prove itself, as Casey pontificates about Obama, survivalism, and blogging; strangely enough, no one pays him to do it.
Comments are turned back on, but only happy, positive, supportive things that tell him how brilliant he is will be allowed. Comments stating otherwise are deleted, unless they are couched in acrostics.
Oct 24: Hallelujah!
Casey seeks income at a 3-day church conference. Though he witnesses other miracles, God fails to provide. Perhaps his faith is not strong enough. He claims that the $89 fee was paid months ago, and his only costs have been food. He will return to Sacramento on Saturday, the 25th, leaving him approximately ten days to get his Foreclosure Help business to generate sufficient passive income to pay for another month in the motel plus gas and living expenses. He had better find some more church conferences to attend, more truthiness to blog about, and hold more talkcasts if he expects to do all that and pay off his credit cards Anytime Soon™.
