December fundraiser begins today [sticky; new posts below; Tuesday update; FINAL FRIDAY UPDATE]
Yes, November sucked, politically speaking. Which means I’m committed to at least a few more years of trying to right the ship of state before I give up the ghost and sell my soul for whiskey and ammo, then move to the hills of West Virginia and learn the banjo/ mouth organ as a kind of currency for acceptance into an extended family of self-sufficient pioneer types. And their inbred (NTTATWWT) families.
Give what you can. Daddy needs a generator, and with the economy the way it is, pimping out the panzer rat has become much more difficult, what with all the competition from erstwhile coal miners who, truth be told, tend to be much better built than the wee shelled Casanova. And have incredible endurance, to boot.
If you can get past the hacking cough, that is.
Tuesday update: Thanks to those who have contributed. Overall to this point — to be blunt — this fundraiser is for shit. Other sites are making big bucks every month off, for instance, the Amazon affiliate program that got canceled here when CO tried to tax Amazon. Others are involved in link matrixes that drive up traffic and woo advertisers.
pw is marginalized. Cut off from water, withering on the vine.
I honestly do appreciate all the support I’ve gotten over the years. But as it dwindles, I take that as a sign. Anyone would.
The future is uncertain. But no worries: there are other places to go, other people to read, other arguments to have.
I’ve made it through a decade of doing this with my integrity very much intact, and knowing that at one point I was one of the most influential bloggers on the right — not just for my political analysis but for the “blog grammar” I pioneered.
That’s something that can never be taken away from me.
Friday update: Thanks so much to all of you who’ve contributed, and to you bloggers who linked to this fundraiser. I’ll leave this post up through tomorrow to let the week run its course — though tomorrow I won’t be around, as I have a wrestling duel to coach down near Denver.
As for my Tuesday update? Well, I’m feeling much better now, thanks.
