A friend of mine's little sister is getting deployed to Iraq. And she's going to need armor.
Unfortunately, as we all know, this President has left us a little short of armor for the time being. And, thanks to Bush's economic policies, my friend is dead-ass broke. But we can do something to maybe save this kids's life.
Please go to Amanda's Armor and make a donation. The goal is to raise $1740 for the best stuff available: EnGarde Cougar armor with two Level IV ceramic inserts. That shit will stop an armor-piercing bullet from a 30-06, let alone an AK-47 or AR-15.
For more information, please go to the extended copy box.
Update The link to Amanda's Armor is fixed.
Q: How do I know this isn't a scam?
A: You don't; you have to trust me to vouch for my friend's integrity. But, if it turns out that I am scamming you, you can kick my ass. And you can trust me that, if my friend should be scamming me, I'm going to kick her ass.
Q: Isn't this spam?
A: Probably, but it's not mentioned in the four rules, so I'm going with it. If Kos or another lord-high-muckity-muck tells me to take it down, I'll do it. My goal here is to reach a broad and interested audience, because, to be frank, we've got to raise a hell of a lot of money.
Q: Can't you wait until after campaign season?
A: Sure I can, and I'll even agree that the best way to protect this girl would be to give her a commander-in-chief that isn't a complete asshole. But regardless of who's calling the shots, I want her to have armor.
Q: Wait a second. Tom DeLay says we're raising money for insurgents. You're raising money for a US soldier. I'm confused.
A: Maybe you should point the Exterminator this way. I don't even care what finger you use to do it.
