Keeping this blog going requires your help…

 

…and I will give you a free gift if you make a donation of $5.00 or more…

…you get my absolutely most popular picture font:“Bill’s Broadway DECOrations” These images created from many traditional and period sources are very usable at any size in designs and publications. The font comes for Mac and PC, and I usually sell it for $29.95. It’s my way of saying “Thank You” to offer it to $5 or more donors.

So many of you have been following this blog since 2004 that I feel like a member of a huge web community.

I have enjoyed bringing you the Cartoon(s) of the Week, the Quotes, the Political and Arts News, the Blogrolls of the best sites in America and beyond… They are all a joy to put together. Often we get the breaking political stories before you see them anywhere else. And our wide open communication channels with readers can’t be beat. I offer your participation at all times and appreciate the hundreds of subscribers who sign up every year.

I really need YOUR help to keep it going. I’m hoping you will make a small contribution, by PayPal or credit/debit card, in support of Under The LobsterScope. You’d be amazed at how much $5.00 can do to help me bring more and more to these pages. And it is probably the LOWEST annual subscription fee you will make to any publication… interactive or not. I often receive larger contributions and I certainly appreciate those.

Remember, for a contribution of $5.00 (or MORE) you will receive a copy of my Picture Font, Bill’s Broadway DECOrations and the knowledge that this blog will continue onward.

(I send you font versions for both Macs and PCs by email, and include a typeface keyboard directory.
See the Sample Below.)

I should note that even a donation of $1.00 gets my thanks and helps to keep this blog going. By clicking on the DONATE button below, you tell me that Under The LobsterScope makes a difference in your time on the web.

Thanks,

– Bill T.

 

July is almost over and Under The LobsterScope is still short of its budget…

So once again I’m asking you for help. If you make a donation of $5.00 or more I’ll send you the  BILL’S DINGBATS  package (PC/Mac and OTF font in one bunch – worth $29.00). immediately.
That’s it… a donation of $5.00 or more and I will send you this font (partial sample below) which is not available ANYWHERE ELSE.

I need your help, folks. Since 2004 I have been bringing you Under The LobsterScope totally free-of-charge and have avoided advertising or “blog begging” or any of the other methods of scavenging that blog writers are prone to. Unfortunately, this has had to change…just a little… to keep this information for progressives, liberals and others coming.

Even a small donation of $1 or $2 would help (although $5 helps a whole lot more.) The amount is up to you. We accept contributions through PayPal and the credit/debit cards shown below.

Some of you have chosen to come in EVERY MONTH and have told me it is cheaper than buying a daily newspaper… not only do you get the Under The LobsterScope articles, but you get defined access to a growing number of other sites on our blogroll, news list, and speacialty sections.

I appreciate those of you who have come on board over the last few days and hope more will join in. And for those of you $5 Plus donors who received our last three Free Fonts: Bill’s Universal Symbols, Bill’s Cast O’Characters and Bill’s Century Marks, you know what a good deal this is.

So please click on the “Donate” button below:

Thanks,

Your support is more than appreciated at Under The LobsterScope…

In 2004 I started Under The LobsterScope during the election season. For six years I have presented the best liberal-oriented material I could find and my own comments on politics and the arts (and a few other subjects).

I need your support to keep this blog going… when I started I was employed and well-paid, but, as a result of the Bushified economy, I have been more-or-less unemployed for three years. Spending five or six hours a day on a blog is actually an expensive process – when I’m working here, I’m not out hustling freelance jobs or looking for real employment. So I’m asking if you will donate at least $5.00 to Under the LobsterScope. If you do, you get my picture font,Bill’s Universal Symbols (worth $29.95) , absolutely FREE OF CHARGE.

That’s it. $5.00 or more and I will send you this font (partial sample below) which is not available ANYWHERE ELSE (except, of course, on my UTF Type Foundry site.).

Even a small donation of $1 or $2 helps (although $5 helps a whole lot more.) The amount is up to you. We accept contributions through PayPal and the credit/debit cards shown below.

Remember…All contributors of $5.00 or more receive a copy of my Picture Font, Bill’s Universal Symbols (I send you the versions for both Macs and PCs, plus a handy keyboard chart). As I said, I regularly sell this font for $29.95.

This offer is for a very limited time. Come July, Bill’s Universal Symbols comes off the Free list.

I appreciate those of you who have come on board every time I’ve put up a new Free Font and hope more of you will join in. Previous donors have received two Free Fonts, Bill’s Cast O’Characters and Bill’s Century Marks. Since several have come back again, it is clear what a good deal this is.

So please click on the “Donate” button below:

Thanks,
Bill T.

Nancy Pelosi says there are not enough votes in the Senate for a Public Option…

… and that’s why she’s keeping it out of the House bill. However, Progressive Chance Campaign Committee, Democracy for America, and Credo Action have put together a television ad (that they are raising funds to get on right away) which says the votes ARE there by looking at statements made by the so far uncommitted Senate members.

Take a look:

They are looking for $3.00 contributions from as many people possible… and they need it NOW. Go HERE if you can make a contribution.

Cartoon(s) of the Week… concerning Haiti

Is there a more important story this week? I doubt it.

Ed Stein at UFS:

Enough said.

You can make a donation to the American Red Cross International Response Fund at www.redcross.org or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS. Donors can designate their gifts to Haiti relief. You can also donate $10 to Haiti relief by texting “HAITI” to 90999.

Tony Auth at the Philadelphia Inquirer:

…and if you were going to donate money to Robertson’s ministry, perhaps you’ll give it to Haiti instead.
