Thanks for posting. I’m completely lost though, maybe it’s just me (probably is).
Bottom line: How much do new contributors need to make monthly to be part of the “66” you say are all that’s needed to reach 50%? This is where I’m confused.
Also, I don’t quite understand what “50%” represents, is it 50% of what is needed to reach the “funded by monthlies only” goal? Or some other amount? I’m guessing the former so I’m not quite lost on that point.
As an aside, if I may add: I have set up an automatic payment to be made to JR/FR, via a check sent by my bank. This is because the auto payments I sent up on a CC kept getting kiboshed by the various CC’s I tried to use I have no idea why (if I was of the conspiracy mind, I might suspect something nefarious, but again probably something I did wrong).
Anyway, now it gets sent by a check which, given the amount I do (I’ll say it’s $10 a month not for public recognition but to make the following point) that it may be easier financially for FR to do it via check if one wishes to make such a low payment as mine. This is because CC’s charge fees that make it almost cost prohibitive to charge less than or equal to $10 per transaction (this is why a lot of small businesses say “no CC purchases less than $10 although they aren’t supposed to be allowed to do that).
Anyway my only point with this rambling diatribe is that if one wishes to donate such an amount per month, then look into sending a check automatically instead of a CC payment. It’s easy with most banks they let you set up “automatic bill pay”, and they will send the check for you free of charge every month or week or whatever frequency you desire. I have mine sent to the mailing address on the homepage.

Seems to work I’ve never had any check get lost or anything.
I just post this as a personal opinion I don’t want to discourage people from donating if a CC/debit card payment is more convenient for them. So if the admins/JR want to delete this for fear of insulting someone who may be a potential donor I’ll understand.
I will send a check. Just tell me where.

I'm thinking of changing my donation habits - instead of three monthly installments, maybe a original first month installment, a double second month installment (to help us crawl over the edge earlier) and then maybe a "hey look at me!" bit of extra if it's still running in the 3rd month.....
Glad folks like you are on the job and wish all them that claimed to have Conservative Principles (like paying their own way instead of blowing fatuous smoke and thinking others should pay for them) would put their money where their mouths are...
God Bless!!! Double payment coming tomorrow morning.....
