I wrote him this morning when I discovered his message, There will be no more posts from me. Im done on his page, ‘Latest News’.
He does not answer.
Something has happened here- and we need to find out WHAT. He has been receiving death threats..maybe all it took was a death threat against his children or grandchildren- or a visit from ACORN thugs. A law suit?
I exchange emails with him once in a while- the last ones being yesterday re; his happy birthday thread.
He wrote a simple message thanking me. Thats all.
He mentioned something about them trying to shut
him down several times before. How could anybody sue him for the content of his website?
He only put in it what was reported by others daily. It was all the news in one place- a marvelous treasure trove of information. I read his latest news daily, and used it for reference constantly!
I am just heartsick about this.
Is this the beginning? Will the Chicago thug shut us all down?
Oh stop it. He's po'ed that he didn't get more PayPal donations. He says so right here:
Lack of support
You all deserve an explanation. No, Obama, nor the Obots shut me down. You guys did.
I didn't get into this for the money. As I say on my Read Me page, "My agenda is simple and clear. I am opposed to a socialist sitting in the Oval Office -- especially one that employs teams of lawyers and the legal system to hide his questionable background from the American People."
But, I've had a PayPal "Contribute" button on my site for over a year. Every day, I get 200 to 300 emails. 50 Of them from folks that tell me I'm a patriot, or they're praying for me, or the site is invaluable, blah, blah, blah. None of those emailers ever clicked the PayPal button.
I've been reading those emails for months, and instead of making me feel good, they disappointed me. I spend 8 to 10 hours a day at this -- 7 days a week, and with the exception of a local guy who sent me two $100 hits a year ago, I have received from my loyal readership $40 in contributions in the last 16 months -- while my bandwidth steadily increased.
Right now, my email box is full of emails telling me how valuable the site is, and please don't take it down -- oh yeah, and I'm a patriot. Not one of those emailers has ever sent me 5 bucks. I'm a strong believer in non-verbal communication. Flattery doesn't pay the bills.
This isn't about money. I do not want any contributions at this point. If you send me any money, I will just send it back -- and I'll pay the PayPal fee -- costing me more money.
I realize I sound bitchy, but I'm discouraged. You want me to fight the fight, but you don't want to give me any bullets.
I'm done. I'm going to the beach.
