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.
Sounds like someone is whining hoping to get some donations. If your business plan doesn’t work, don’t blame the customers.

Sheesh!! In one breath he’s not in it for the money but the next he’s mad because he’s not getting any ????
Soooorrrrrryyy — but i can’t afford to donate to all of the sites I visit. I guess the gratitude and well wishes just aren’t enough anymore.

Right he wanted more donations and didn’t get them so he is quitting. Seems simple to me. It isn’t the first site to go down for this reason and it won’t be the last. If anyone wants the info on this site they better get it before he pulls the plug on that as well.
