Okay!  I've been sufficinetly nagged into submission and last night I put in the digits on the card in my wallet, and voilà!  Not only were there no longer any ad's to hide from, but there was a sense of community fellowship in the pressing of the

button.  However, now that I've gone off the deep end and fully embraced this group of rag-tag progressives and smarter-than-thou activists, I want to discuss where the money that I've invested should be used to better our community!  Join me below the very french cheese-eating-looking-squiggly thingy to discuss.

Due to the fact that I've been around here through thick and thin for many years now, and lurked at least a year subsequent to that, I think I've seen enough here to know what is best for this site.  So, here it goes....

$1.00 of my Subscription money is to be placed in the 12 Step Program for Recovering Metaists.  This is a very important group that should be funded and not be overlooked just because of site austerity measures.

$3.00 of my Subscription money is to be used to pay for the overhead at the new digs in Berkley.  Somebody has to chip in to keep the troops warm in the winter and cool in the summer.  

$29.95 of my Subscription is to purchase new polling data on how much Americans really loathe, and I mean despise Republicans.  I actually want the question posed as:

"How much do you loathe and despise Republicans?  A.) A whole fucking lot  B.) Jeebus! There is no end to the amount.  C.) Well, sure they suck, but isn't despise a bit harsh?  D.)  I love greedy bastards!

Thank you.  Please get on this right away as I've got another $5.00 of my Subscription money bet on the fact that when combining A and B above, the percentage will add up to more than 55% of those polled.  And yes, I know it's a sucker bet, but the guy took it, so I'm just investing Subscription money wisely.  Kos will thank me for my foresight as the returns roll in.

$10.00 of my Subscription money is to be allotted to maintaining the web site, because as we all know, bugs never sleep!

The rest is to be used in any way Kos thinks it should be used.  With one stipulation only!  No animals may be harmed in the usage of these monies, and if the earth is ever completely covered in a 4 mile thick layer of weapons grade Right Wing Bullshit, we will invest in heavy equipment to dig those assholes out again.  Okay, that's two stipulations but I got them both into one sentence, so it doesn't count.  Geez!

Enjoy the Subscription money Kos!  I sure as hell do enjoy your place.  Thanks for inviting me.  Glad I could be a part of this little piece of progressive history.

I suggest you take this opportunity that is only available for a couple more days and get your requests in on how to use your Subscription money as well.  However, first?  Subscribe.  You'll be glad you did.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
