Pledge Week Update: almost there!

96 readers have contributed $3,450 to HA’s pledge drive… just $50 shy of my $3,500 target with one day remaining. At this point I’m pretty sure we’re going to reach our goal.

I thank you all for your incredible generosity.

Please GiveIt’s Pledge Week at HA.
Please give liberally.

Target reached! I’ll post a full accounting later today, but in the mean time, please feel free to take me well past my goal. Thanks!

    Here is a promise that if you don’t make it by 9PM, we will make sure you do. If only to prove to the wingdings that some of us find value here.

    I know some wingding is going to say that if we find value we should give anyway. That would be a valid argument IF we had not already given to help with, what we see as, a good work.

    Thanks, Goldy.


    Moniker changed for this one post to protect the innocent and to drive the wingdings to insanity. (And it ain’t a long trip).

    Register as a charity. Then I’ll consider it!

    Furball blogs this is a liberal site. We on the right will continue to respect those words by our PayPal inaction.

    Voice of Scratching Chalk: Maybe you can use your $3500 to call Juan Williams about Barack Obama and bring him back into the reservation!

    “He comes from a father who was a Muslim,” said civil rights author Juan Williams of National Public Radio. “I mean, I think that given we’re at war with Muslim extremists, that presents a problem.”

    Considering the context of the rest of the quote, where he is talking about the problems faced by any Presidential candidate that is not white, it doesn’t seem that Mr. Williams has left the fold.

    You folks must be really scared of Mr. Obama, that you keep throwing up these rather silly distractions. I’m still not really sure why this guy seems to be one of the “front runners”, but there must be a lot more to him than I see.

    Of course, we could run a pulled pork sandwich for President in 2008 and beat anyone you folks are likely to run, but I would like to see someone that has vision, intelligence and strong leadership skills as President. Mr. Obama may fit that description, but I still don’t know enough about him or his views to know.

    But you folks seem so scared of him that I imagine that we’ll be seeing this out-of-context quote for quite a while.

    JohnBarrelli@6 I think you are right. The wignut screeds against various popular democratic forerunners reek of fear. But not too surprising, since they fear anything genuine.

    RightEqualsStupid spews:

    I think we need to start attacking the GOP candidates the way that the GOP is attacking our candidates. Since we’ve proven that the GOP will simply lie – they no longer even feel the need to deny it – we should do the same. So, I suggest we come up with possible lies that might stick to the likes of McCain, Rompin Rudy, the Mormon and others.

    Anything having to do with sex should get the righties going. Everyone feel free to chip in.

    I’m late, but I finally chipped in a small contribution. Thanks for giving us this forum.

    And for those that don’t want to contribute but post regularly here (i.e., wingnut trolls) – feel free to start your own blog. Then you can rant to yourself for as long as you like.

    I see that our pal pullinmypud is at it early this morning.

    It finally occured to me what he really is and I want to take this opportunity to apologize to the DOUCHEBAG for all that swearing.

    Well, not really.

    What a fucktard.

    Left Foot, have you recently suffered some kind of catostrophic head trauma or perhaps had brain surgery? I\’m not sure that Tourrette\’s symptoms manifest themselves in the written word, but I tend to doubt it.

    I can think of no other reason that would account for purposefully derailing any sentient point you would attempt to make, yet time and again that is exactly what you do.

    I have noticed that you habitually promote yourself as more educated, more intellectual, more of many things than those you look down upon, but then you belie yourself with your own words. You make for a very interesting case study of internal conflict, of insecurity, of self worth doubt.

    @17 If Goldy promises to gets a job, will you promise to get laid? You have so much testosterone backed up it’s exploding out of your nostrils. I hear you can get relief for only $20 on Aurora Avenue.

    “Yo” is a contraction of “yahoo” (as in “trailer park yahoo”) and is properly spelled “Y’o.” Like most wingnuts, Y’o can’t spell his own fucking name.

    Mark The Redneck KENNEDY spews:

    Hey Goldy – Here’s an illustration what a fucking loser you are…

    So you got some other losers to ante up $3400. That’s about 4% of what Tim got in a single payday.

    Here’s another one. A company I own stock in announced earnings today that exceeded street expectations. Stock went up some. I got an unrealized holding gain of $6000 before I even started work today. I suppose you moonbats would tax the shit out of that since you think I didn’t “work” for it.

    Losers… every fucking one of you. Especially Goldy…

    dagwood @ 16:

    Apparently you missed the point.

    Ask someone to explain it to you. I am not in the habit of talking to people whose only ability seems to be that they can use a thesaurus and google to come up with, what they believe, are clever little posts.

    My education does not preclude me from talking to the lowest common denominator. You of course, being the lowest.

    Now, kindly, go fuck yourself.

    Have a nice day.

    Ragnar Danneskold spews:

    Left Foot, It is abundantly evident from your posts that you do not gladly suffer fools. What is so captivatingly intriguing is that you willingly become one to make your point.

    In your tedious zeal to be as rude, condescending and ultimately self-debasing as possible you seemed to have forgotten to answer the question about recent head trauma or brain damage.

  20. 26



    Is dagwood one and the same as proudofherfatlyingass?


    You are most correct. I do not suffer fools. My personal email signature includes the following:

    The difference between genius and stupidity, is that genius has its limits.

    You are proving the point. You have no limits.

    You seem to fancy yourself the literary buff. Let me help you.

    It is Ragnar Danneskjold. It seems your reference to a “Republicann Pirate”, who stole from the poor to give to the rich, is not lost me, but, the spelling of his name was lost on you.

    Puddybud spews:

    Ragnar: The libtard is so quintessentially toooooooooooooolerant, so even minded in their thiiiiiiiiiiiiinking. This blog proves otherwise, so I have so much fun with them! Only one, Carl with mental problems actually admitted to helping his fellow man. I was impressed. How could a social misfit such as him be so nice. It had to be a personality aberration. When he leaves his couch he could be a nice guy!

    In the beginning I posted very nicely. Then the Puddybud name was torn apart with special naming. I ignored it. Then the hatred appeared. I identified myself as black. More hatred, really ugly. A guy PacMan appeared. He’s from California. Big muscular guy. He was racially ridiculed. I was racially ridiculed. I’ll always remember September 2005. Was told I better watch out cuz the house ni^^er will lynch the field Ni^^er. Was told I have a pink ass among other things. Was told my wife cheats with me with mental midgets. Was told my children are gay. No fudge packers in my family! I decided to fight fire with fire. Yeah, I lost it on occasions. Maybe regret it. Tried being nice with Reckless. Libtards didn’t change. IDIOTS till the end!

    See ya! Nuff SAID!

    Puddybud spews:

    Ragnar: The funny thing was Voice of Chalk Scratching did nothing. Even when PacMan asked him to denounce the Headless one – The Sounds ————– Of Silence. PacMan left. Yeah, he came back once or twice to test the waters, found them polluted and moved on!

  25. 31

    Ragnar Danneskold spews:

    I\’ve not even intimated being a literary buff, so where ever you imagine you saw that it was not from me.

    Did you happen to consider that just perhaps, Ragnar Danneskold is my name? Or is it simply more expedient for you to assign falshood where there is none? Or could it possibly be that you live in such a state of pretense and artifice that you no longer recognize reality when you see it?

  26. 32

    Puddybud spews:

    So do I try and get under his skin now that he told his libtard friends who I posted under? Sure do! It’s more onerous because I outed four of his doppelgangers so easily. The libtard mind is so full of mush!

    So thanks Voice of Chalk Scratching for being so tooooooooooolerant! Oh I know Voice of Chalk Scratching would like to say otherwise. He could edit his saved pages and say yes he did. The Google cached pages would prove him otherwise.

    If you can prove to me your born, legal name is as you now are intimating, I will apologize and buy you and your guest dinner at the Metropolitan Grill or Daniels, your choice.

    But since we both know you are referencing Atlas Shrugged, I am going to take my wife instead.


    We differ on politics. I am a nice guy. I care about my fellow man and I believe a hand up is better than a hand out. I don’t hate you at all. I just disagree with your politics. Nothing more. I could share a beer and a ballgame with you and never mention politics. Is American great or what?

    my left foot/carl grossman…, i clicked on your blog and god, you are incredibly boring. perhaps some writing talent and a less puffed up view of yourself might help you get comments or READERS…….but geez, could you be a more bitter creepy little man?
    well, you could always try out to become “metro-natural-man”…….because you have that whole this is all about me thing going really well. the rest is just lame………

    puddy….why did you not tell me about his “blog” ???????

    “My Left Foot says:

    i thought i was supposed to be this person and now you go and cheat on me and accuse someone else…..
    wow…i am so hurt. heh heh heh…….
    do you have issues, or do you have issues!!!???

    puddy…..yup, no brain….but funny as hell.
