It’s that time again—again

[BUMPED UP. And many thanks to those who’ve donated so far.]


Yes, it’s hard to believe, isn’t it? Time passes so quickly when we’re enjoying ourselves.

But yes, it’s been a while since I asked you to donate to a semi-worthy cause: this blog. And so I’m going to ask you again to use the “donate” button on the right sidebar beside the photo of the hat, and give whatever you see fit.

Every single donation— large or small—adds up, and helps me a great deal in continuing the blog. If each and every reader gave even a few dollars, it would be a glorious thing. But whether you decide to donate or not, please keep visiting and keep commenting. I appreciate all of you. Comments and readers are a very big part of what makes this blog work.

I thank you all in advance. I’ll probably repeat this notice every now and then, the equivalent of jiggling that cup/hat. But I’ll be discreet about it. And it’s a lot better than those fund-raising drives they have on TV, isn’t it? No interruption of the scheduled programming.

    $50 on the way to you to prevent the collapse of blogs and the toilets from overflowing at the national parks when sequestration hits.

  2. neo-neocon Says:

    Thanks very much, parker!!

    And the toilets thank you, too :-).

  3. parker Says:

    You are welcome. I thank you for your erudite analyze of the topics of the day and posting subject matter (dance, fashion, jello) that I would never investigate without reading neoneocon.

    This is a whole lot better than watching PBS and its bizarre fascination with pre-WWII England!

  5. DaveindeSwamp Says:

    Neo, if i buy something from the Amazon button, do you get the proceeds or is it better just tip you directly

  6. neo-neocon Says:


    When you click through and buy something from Amazon, I get 4% of the proceeds (most of the time, anyway; it varies somewhat).

    When someone donates, the money goes to my through Paypal, and Paypal takes a very small fee for themselves (for example, they take $0.59 from a $10.00 donation) and I get the rest.

    So you pays your money and you takes your choice!

    My wife has the paypal account, and is sending some $ your way. Thank you for this blog, and keep up the great work!

  8. Tom R Says:

    Embarrassed to admit that after years of enjoying your blog I’ve just donated for the first time. Thank you very much for keeping it interesting!

  9. mizpants Says:

    I also just donated for the first time. Sorry it has taken me so long. I was a little daunted by PayPal, but it turned out to be easy.
    Thanks for keep these homefires burning, Neo. I don’t know what I’d do without this blog in these dark times.

  10. DaveindeSwamp Says:

    Sent, and gladly

  11. Mary in OH Says:

    There ya go. Keep up the great work!

    Neo – I hate to be a stickler for accuracy, but please be precise when writing. The use of “Semi” in front of the words “worthy cause” is incorrect.

    Your blog is fully worthy. Nothing semi about it. 🙂

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
