Perhaps someone can answer a question for me. In the first quater of this year, I decided to become a monthly donor, instead of giving once every 3 months. I checked the monthly spot and selected an amount ($20). I thought all was done and well, but my name never appeared on the monthly list, so I was confused about it. I was listed as a donor, however.

I chalked it up to maybe an error on my part, but that brought up another question. When choosing to be a monthly donor, shouldn’t the site indicate if your pledge is for 3 months, 6 months, 9 months or 1 year? I do not recall seeing any indication of how long my pledge was for.

So, I am still confused, and would be willing to be a monthly donor provided I can fully comprehend the pledge I am making. And, did I make an error when I tried to become a monthly donor - like not completing the form or something?

Just asking. Thanks.

Appearing in a blue collared shirt with the sleeves rolled up, he denounced Republicans for driving the car of the nation’s economy into a ditch, then standing around “sipping on a slurpee” while he’s tried to push it out.

Hi Gumdrop! Thank you so much for becoming a Monthly Donor! I see you're on the Donor List! Members are not automatically added to the List I post, because several want anonymity. You have to request to have your screen name added for publication on the list. Jim can do that right away!
You Monthly pledge will last as long as you wish.

I don ‘t know about you, but I am impatient with those Republicans who after the last election rushed into print saying, “We must broaden the base of our party”–when what they meant was to fuzz up and blur even more the differences between ourselves and our opponents.

It was a feeling that there was not a sufficient difference now between the parties that kept a majority of the voters away from the polls. When have we ever advocated a closed-door policy? Who has ever been barred from participating?

Our people look for a cause to believe in. Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people?

Let us show that we stand for fiscal integrity and sound money and above all for an end to deficit spending, with ultimate retirement of the national debt.- CPAC 1975

Hello Gumdrop. You are listed on our Monthly Donor List that onyx posts periodically on the FReepathon thread, but while researching this, I noticed there was an error on our monthly pledge record for your monthly and it failed during the last two attempts. I have fixed the error and it should work now. It should continue monthly until you ask us to stop or we reach the expiration date on your card.

Thank you very much for your support!!

Christianizing the Delawares


Click The Pic To Donate

In this resolution, Congress makes public lands available to a group for religious purposes. Responding to a plea from Bishop John Ettwein (1721-1802), Congress voted that 10,000 acres on the Muskingum River in the present state of Ohio "be set apart and the property thereof be vested in the Moravian Brethren . . . or a society of the said Brethren for civilizing the Indians and promoting Christianity." The Delaware Indians were the intended beneficiaries of this Congressional resolution.

It was a demoralized, ill-equipped army which stood on the shore of the Delaware River in December of 1776...

The year had not gone well for the army. Washington's men had suffered horrendous defeats in New York at the hands of British and Hessian soldiers. The losses of Forts Washington and Lee had levied a heavy toll to the Patriot cause as many troops were killed or taken prisoner, much needed supplies/munitions were abandoned in the evacuation of the forts, and the belief in the possible achievement of independence was dwindling at every turn. As much of the army was forced to retreat across New Jersey, the collective mood of Washington, Congress, and the army darkened. Enlistments were down, desertion was high, and monies from Congress were unavailable. Men on both sides of the conflict and of all stations and ranks began to question if the Revolution could be ending in the same year in which independence was declared.

Even their stoic commander despaired over "a noble cause lost," and wrote to his brother, "I think the game is pretty near up.

But Washington Did Not Surrender, He Became Bolder And Fought Back!

I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations. James Madison

Checked my garden when we buried the little baby kitten and it looks like most of my roses have died.
