It's been a very busy start to the 8th year here at The BRAD BLOG. So busy, in fact, that we've been able to do almost no fundraising at all, despite our desperate need to do so.

If you've gotten anything from our coverage this year --- from our month-long, round-the-clock detailed coverage of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, to our coverage of Wisconsin and other electoral disasters, outrages and political scoundrels, to our twice weekly Green News Reports --- I hope you'll consider tossing a little (or big) something in our very empty tip jar.

Over the past year alone, we've learned The BRAD BLOG has been long-buried by a cowardly Rightwing cabal at Digg and Reddit, censored by AOL, and, most disturbingly, targeted as part of a $12 million smear, disinfo, fraud, forgery, spy plot by the insidious U.S. Chamber of Commerce which has made its way all the way to the U.S. Congress. So, um, I guess we're doing something right.

If you can help us continue, it would be greatly appreciated and really piss off the crooks and cretins at the U.S. Chamber. Our resources are somewhat lighter than the evil Chamber's, and your generous donations are not likely to level that playing field. But at least it'll help to allow us to keep paying the rent, exposing the bad guys for who they are, and pissing them off to no end when we do.

Please consider a vote of support for the work of The BRAD BLOG, with an online donation via Credit Card or PayPal here. Or, if you prefer, an automatic monthly sustaining donation of any amount you choose, via the simple light blue form about half way down our sidebar at right!

Snail mail donations are, of course, also quite welcome. Please send your checks or money orders to: "Brad Friedman, 7095 Hollywood Blvd., #594 Los Angeles, CA 90028."

We'd far prefer to spend time covering stories that few, if any, others in the media do or will, over asking for your support. But it is, unfortunately, a necessary evil --- at least until an angel shows up. The BRAD BLOG receives no corporate or foundational support. Nobody owns us, other than us! So truly, it is all up to you to help us continue! Please consider doing so! And thank you in advance! --- Brad
