Talk Left Appreciation


- Passing the hat one more time.

Jeralyn expends a great deal of time, effort and yes, money, to keep this site operating. If you appreciate what we provide, how about making a donation to the Talk Left cause.

You may not always agree with us, but you know we mean what we say and let you tell us what you think about it. So how about a donation?

donate to TalkLeft

If you prefer alternative methods for donating here are some:

Here's the paypal link, it's very easy. If you don't like paypal (which takes credit cards if you don't have a paypal account) feel free to pull a few dollars out of your pocket and send it snail mail. The address is below the fold.

If you'd like to donate anonymously, here's the Amazon link.

If you can't afford a few dollars, don't worry about it. This is only meant for those who can. Thanks to all of you for reading TalkLeft. You are all appreciated, including those who politely disagree with us.

    weren't planning to give the DNC or RNC, and make that money work for you!  (Hey I already sent in my monthly $20, because even living on a fixed income for the last few years, some things are worth it.)

    Some of the threads in last couple months, esp on FISA and Netroots, have been the most riveting and astute of any I've read anywhere. Just fabulous analysis/insights by almost everybody who comments. Great work by BTD and TChris and the respectful tone set by Jeralyn is first-rate. Yes, TL an oasis in those hateful primaries and still deepening in value. I'm sending bucks I might otherwise have sent to BHO or DNC (supporting downticket Dems direct).

    Superbly written analysis. I agree with every word. And it's time for me to donate again as well.

    I love Talk Left but have two major problems: 1) I work very late and can't get online until 3 or 4 a.m., usually too late to join thread discussions; and 2) I write too long. So I mostly just read and learn which is a great pleasure.

    I can't write on blogs too much right now (5.00 / 0) (#9)
    by phat on Thu Jul 24, 2008 at 12:58:34 AM EST
    But I read this blog every day.

    I'll donate in a couple weeks, when I can.

    It's the least I can do, if only for the discussions of death penalty law. The Democratic Primary discussions here were just icing on the cake.


    Thanks to Jeralyn, BTD and T Chris for all (5.00 / 1) (#12)

    please put it on an appropriate thread or wait for an open thread. It will be deleted along with off topic responses. This thread is about us, not Obama. We don't have that many threads about us, so please let us have this one.

    Thanks to all for your kind words and support. They mean a lot.

    Keep on keepin' on....since the primary ended you guys have all been especially stellar, getting back to discussing the issues that matter, at least to me.

    value of sanity preservation is in my budget, but tomorrow is payday and I will be happy to send some appreciation your way.

    When someone recommended TL to me as a haven for rational and civil discussion on all sides of the issues, I wondered how that was possible.  Every other blog I had been reading or commenting on was descending into an ugliness that was kind of horrifying, really, and there seemed less and less point to even trying to have a rational discussion - it just took too much mental energy.

    You all are to be commended for the diligence with which you enforce the structure that makes it possible to discuss things - and it makes me chuckle a little when I realize that we've all gotten very protective of this oasis of reason!

    Thanks for all you do.

    Thanks so much for the sanity (none / 0) (#18)

    More love coming your way this week.

    OT (becuase I've been waiting for an Open Thread, but you guys are busy doing important stuff, like work)...

    The Obama team is already planning for the transition into the WH.  I think the arrogance speaks for itself.

    saved my sanity on numerous occasions and still does. I wish I could contribute this month but perhaps next will be better for me. Know you have my undying respect and admiration.

    Will there be a thread to discuss Obamapalooza today? The rally is about to start.
