Da TechGuy fundraiser Goal $3000

Reg­u­lar read­ers of this blog know that I make my liv­ing off the radio show and the blog. I’m not one t0 rat­tle the tip jar daily but the bills and expenses of this busi­ness con­tinue to exist and have been daunting.

When the com­mis­sion sales team that was sup­posed to come on board fiz­zled things became com­pli­cated com­bined that with expenses that have left me with­out a vehi­cle I’ve had to scram­ble to keep up the Qual­ity & vol­ume of the blog and the Under the Fedora while hav­ing time to solicit sales.

This year the hit num­bers have been good and I’d like to think the cov­er­age has been as well.

But none of this is pos­si­ble with­out the money to make sure the bills are paid.

If what I’ve done is of value to the con­ser­v­a­tive move­ment and advanc­ing our cause I’d like to ask you to kick in.





My goal of this drive is $3000 this will allow me a month’s grace with the basic show/​coverage expenses that I have for a month in case there is any issue that comes up. UPDATE: GOAL #1 MADE 8÷1÷12

If I can raise $7500 I can have that month’s grace AND get a half decent used car that will allow me to cover sto­ries with­out depriv­ing my spouse of her vehicle.

If I can get the num­ber to $10,000 Then I can have the month’s grace, the used car and have some reserves for when the win­ter heat­ing sea­son comes along.

And if I can some­how get it to $20,000 then I can do all that and with my wife’s pay AND sup­port my fam­ily for the rest of the year.

I’m not so san­guine or unre­al­is­tic that I expect to make that final num­ber eas­ily, but if this site, and my show are to get to the next level I have to increase rev­enue with­out increas­ing the num­ber of hours in the day.

For a larger polit­i­cal Pac that is a drop in the bucket but until the day comes when such a buy comes I’m afraid I’m sim­ply going to have to shake the tip jar:





Any help you can give is greatly appre­ci­ated and if the monies per­mit I’ll see if I can do some­thing along the lines of Stacy’s mugs.

This next sec­tion is for those who might have a Super­Pac or a Cause and have four fig­ures or more to spare.

For $1200 I can make the char­ity of your choice the “Show spon­sor” for the 2nd hour for a month (4 min of ads per show) , this will include a link to said char­ity on the site for the same period of time with the caveat that said char­ity is not dia­met­ri­cally opposed to my Catholic faith (for exam­ple a protes­tant min­istry is fine, a pro-​abortion non-​profit is not)

For $3600 I can do the same for 3 months and have you on the show for a seg­ment to push said char­ity or cause or your group’s position

For $6000 I can do the same for 6 months and include three vis­its with at least one of the with you as co-​host

And $10,000 will get you a full year at least two co-​hosting opportunities

Now if your con­ser­v­a­tive group wants to pick up some­thing like that even as much as $20,000 worth of show & blog adver­tis­ing I can do it (My full price sheet is here) That will do more for the con­ser­v­a­tive cause than invest­ing in Char­lie Crist or Dede Scoz­zafava ever did.

And if I can somehow get it to $20,000 then I can do all that and with my wife’s pay AND support my family for the rest of the year.

I’m not so sanguine or unrealistic that I expect to make that final number easily, but if this site, and my show are to get to the next level I have to increase revenue without increasing the number of hours in the day.
