Support

Your support is key to our success.
Here are a few ways you can help us like-minded souls band together for mutual defense. Or Belgian conquest.

There are three levels of sponsorships available:

Dog Treat Purveyor - the dogs made me put this one up. As unpaid "interns" they work for treats. Even though they are not strict constructionists when it comes to the Constitution, they suggested a sinking fund to offset their expenses. $3 per month will keep them in the peanut butter and apple cookies they like, and keep them from subverting the founding documents of the nation. 

Branch of Government Bribery Fund - as long as these are for sale, we should consider buying them. If we had our own bought and paid-for representatives in Congress or our own man or woman in the White House, maybe we could finally start getting America's proverbial car out of the proverbial ditch. $5 a month is a start. 

Contributors at this level will get bonus episodes (mostly me ranting on those times where my wife is out of town or I'm feeling brave and watch the news despite a stern spousal warning) and early access to upcoming episodes of the show. 

And if we raise enough, maybe a pliable Congressman. Everyone else is doing it. Why not us?

Belgium Conquest Expeditionary Force - as it turns out, conquering Belgium isn't going to be as easy as the Germans made it look on their way to France. We're going to need quite a lot of logistical support. 

It's not cheap, but it needs to be done. Chip in $7 a month and get early access to new episodes, bonus content and live Q&A sessions with me. 

Anything you can offer is much appreciated to keep the show going. The dogs and I thank you.

Episode 10 - The Electoral Playground

 There are two ways to elect the President in this country. Well, only one that matters.  I warned you all in our first episode that I have been a lifelong holder of unpopular opinions, so here’s one.  It’s time to eliminate the Electoral College.  I take on one of my favorite Founding Fathers as the dogs and I open the metaphorical hood of the United States Constitution so we can tinker with America’s metaphorical engine one more time (and probably not for the last time) on this episode of I’m Not Allowed To Watch The News.

Episode 9 - Ben Franklin Bets on America

America’s wisest old man was writing his last will and testament. Benjamin Franklin had followed his own life advice and been frugal with his money, unlike some of the more debt-ridden big spenders of the Revolutionary generation like Thomas Jefferson, who asked the state of Virginia to let him conduct a lottery in order to pay off his $170,000 in debt, which would be about two million dollars today. And this in spite of his free labor force and a number of high-paying government jobs. He had plenty of people to leave his fortune to – his son William Franklin, former royal governor of New Jersey. His grandson, Temple Franklin, who had been Ben’s secretary during the negotiations with France that got the colonies some much-needed assistance with that whole “give the British a whuppin’” thing. Sally Bache, his daughter. Benjamin Bache, Sally’s son. Or even his sister Jane Franklin. Everyone in the family got a little something. William got debt-forgiveness for all the money he had borrow

Episode 8 - The Jury Congress

I served on a jury once, and if that makes you doubt both the stability and effectiveness of the American justice system, well, just imagine how I felt when I got the summons. But I have to say the experience went pretty well, and justice (I think) was served by twelve random people and two alternates who definitely jumped in the jury pool with preconceived notions about the case. Justice was most definitely not served by Phil from the hardware store, but I’ll get to him soon enough. The relevant point for today’s episode is that the whole experience gave me a great idea for a way to change the way America chooses its representatives, crafts legislation, and makes laws. The dogs and I once again raise America’s proverbial hood and tinker with the metaphorical engine that is our governing document on this episode of I’m Not Allowed To Watch The News. Episode 8
