    It's time for a donation drive

    Hi All

    We’re getting busier again but donations are down. Have been since right after the election.

    We do not require donations to use our site. Nor do we ever want anyone to donate if they’re financially unable. But it does cost money to keep the site running. Unfortunately, this now includes having to pay an attorney for advice.

    I’m so grateful for everyone here. For the sharing of information. For the excellent discussion and for the original posts that make us all think.

    The hamsters are hungry though.

    Someone suggested we change to cats but they aren’t the workers hamsters are. Besides, they take up less room.

    Thank you all. I’ll be back after work and will try to check in during breaks

    Update: I’m sorry, extremely busy at work. Here’s the link to donate:

      • *Obligatory disclaimer - when I say "Democratic Party" I mean the DNC - the Clintons and the un-elected people and the consultants and the lobbyists and the corporations who actually run things.  The people who work and vote and are registered as "D" are no more the actual party than Trekkies are Star Trek.   Extra credit - the Democratic Party gets to actually fuck up your life. When you vote for it.
      You think the only reason that people won't vote for a warmongering Third Way fracking-enabling cluster bomb throwing H-1B increasing lying pandering corporate and Wall Street shill who says she has no problem putting abortion rights on the table is because we are mad about Bernie?  Um, nope.

      25. Another drop in your bucket…

      I wish it could be more…Sadly, that was 60% of all available funds. My current state of self-employment  has benefits, but wealth is not one of them.
