My sponsors - a subject I really have never touched - need a bit of description. I thought I had better say something in the interests of transparency/full disclosure (ala Phil Carter). First, the money from the sponsors goes toward the upkeep of the site. Whatever's left, I donate to Soldiers' Angels or other organizations that support military people. I won't donate proceeds to politically motivated orgs. So you are not really lining my pockets (but may be giving me a tax break when I claim the donations) by visiting these sponsors. I thought you should know who gets the donations. If you support that and/or like the products, click through and check out the sponsors.
At the top, Right Wing Stuff has held the top spot (in order of how long the ad has stayed here) for most of the months that I've been advertising. They have some great products. Actually, this one had me laughing and is my favorite slogan from Right Wing Stuff.
Next is Hot Sauce. Now, Hot Sauce has caused a bit of a controversy for me. There's a few local Christian radio stations in Michigan that would occasionally talk about my blog...that is until I posted the Hot Sauce ad. Also, I received a few emails from gentlemen who told me that their wives won't let them read my blog because of the ad. Seriously. Granted, Hot Sauce has a model in a bikini for it's ad because Hot Sauce features model interviews and has pictures of the models being interviewed and that offends some people. There's no nudity but some provocative posing there. It's a male-oriented site definitely, but everyone really should check the site out. Hot Sauce has some really cool interviews with musicians, too, like Rachel Yamagata - a Chicago sensation - and other topics like sports and cars.
Then there's the wonderful VRWC. Their latest shirt claims that flip-flops are for feet...
Next, the indomitable Tony Blair has a tribute site - Thank You Tony. Talk about friends, we've none better than the Brits, along with the Poles, the Aussies, the El Sals, the Italians, etc. At this site, you can post a thank you to Mr. Blair for his support against terrorism. The messages get printed and shipped weekly to the PMs office on Downing Street. So far, over 46,000 of you have sent him a thank you. That's pretty darn cool.
Finally, JC T-Shirts has three different designs that will definitely stir up conversation wherever you are...Check them out. I have the Hegemony shirt. I like the cog, too. Might send that one to a few friends in the Pentagon.
I do have Google Ads (which don't seem to really work for me - that means no $ yet) and a link to Amazon where I build up credits for purchases made from clicking through Blackfive. So far, I've gotten about $16 from that and I used it to pay for part of Hugh Hewitt's book - If It's Not Close, They Can't Cheat: Crushing the Democrats in Every Election and Why Your Life Depends on It.
I do get free books from publishers every once in awhile. I bought Hugh's book and I bought Unfit for Command.
There are also two text ads that currently advertise on-line poker and texas hold 'em.
So there you have it.
