In case some readers here don't realize it there is no money speaking truth to power. Let me say that again, there’s no money in speaking the truth. If alternative media in Canada had so much as one percent of the financial resources of the Globe and Mail, CTV News or any MSM outlet, we could conquer the world in a month. The only way to get rich in a society that worships liars, cheats and thieves is to lie, cheat and steal; selling out is an ever-present temptation.
The only way for independent, alternative media to stay that way is with independent, alternative sources of funding.
From my recent poll (on the left sidebar) and further to my previous post it is quite obvious by now, even though the poll has yet to close, that most of my readers here would prefer to see no advertising on this blog. With this in mind, a frequent visitor here in an email exchange suggested I do a "Tip Jar" instead. I thought, "what the hell, got nothing to lose, it's worth a shot".
Granted, you don’t have to give me anything. I appreciate your readership either way, and it’s not like I have to do this. But if my efforts in speaking the truth resonate with you in making you think, or in simply entertaining you, then why not support alternative media?
Help fight the cause of allowing me during these hard economic times to continue on with my work here of speaking out on issues important to us all, while continuing to live the life I have grown accustomed to i.e. like eating, having shelter, and 'enjoying' the simple good things in life, like occasionally having breakfast with my wife at Timmy's. :-)
So with the above in mind, don't be shy... Tip Tip Tip Away! :-)
The comfort of the rich depends upon an abundant supply of the poor.
