Due to the poor performance of my GoFundMe Campaign, I am going to have to extend my break a month to further work on my book until May 2nd (which is actually my birthday).
The idea was the finish it up, polish it, and then get it to an editor for grammar/spelling clean up. I would then get a cover and Kindle formatting thrown in, all for a one time $1,000 fee. It is not a bad deal when you consider that most editors and cover makers online nickel and dime your ass. It was a one-stop-shop made of awesomeness. Sadly it was not meant to be.
Now I am going to have sit down and go over the book a 2nd/3rd time without the benefit of fresh set of eyes. I also have to pray I get the Kindle formatting right. Both editing and formatting is sadly going to take time away from me creatively. And now I have to take time to shop around for a book cover. All time I don’t have.
Now I’m not mad nor I am going to cry “unfair” to the world. Some people did donate and I very grateful. Others didn’t see the value in my work and I am not going to bitch to them. Sure I am disappointed with all the crowdfunding money being thrown around, but whatever. I am also going to leave the GoFundMe campaign up for the next month. If I can get to the $1,000 somehow, all the better.
I was going to post this yesterday, but to be on the safe side I didn’t want anyone thinking that this is an April Fool’s Day joke.
However I cannot express how ultimate blame should be placed on Hillary Clinton’s blood-soak shoulders. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani explains:
“By being part of an administration withdrew from Iraq. By being part of an administration that let (Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki) run Iraq into the ground, so you forced the Shiites to make a choice. By not intervening in Syria at the proper time. By being part of an administration that drew twelve lines in the sand and made a joke out of it,” (Former New York City Mayor Rudy) Guiliani said.
O’Reilly then pointed out that as secretary of state, Clinton was not personally responsible for the decisions, and that the most she could have done to compel Obama to change his policy was resign.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton… drew a contrast between Syrian President Bashir Assad and his late father and predecessor, and said U.S. lawmakers who recently have visited Damascus regarded him as a “reformer.”
She made the startling comment while explaining why the United States will not intervene on behalf of Syrian civilians revolting against the regime as it has done in the case of Libya.
And now, thanks to EmailGate, we know that Sidney Blumenthal warned Hillary Clinton to stop the “reformer” nonsense:
Longtime Clinton family confidante Sidney Blumenthal warned then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2011 that Syrian President Bashar Assad is no reformer.
“Enclosed is an article by David W. Lesch, perhaps the U.S. expert with the closest relationship with Bashar al-Assad, developed out of my continuing correspondence with him, an edited version which I have appended,” in a message to Clinton on June 20, 2011. “The bottom line is that Assad’s gestures at reform are delusional attempts to recreate the pattern of his own recent past when he gained a modicum of respect from the West.“
The same reformer who looted Palmyra well before ISIS/ISIL got their bloody paws on it.
The Bush Administration didn’t want to have anything to do with Bashar al-Assad after the Hariri assassination. The blood spilt in Syria’s Civil War and Palmyra’s destruction is all on Sec. Hillary Clinton, because she and President Barack Obama both bear full responsibility for what happen under their watch. Clinton as secretary of state was chief ambassador and foreign policy maker for Obama, so don’t tell me she isn’t responsible. And you can take that all the way to the bank.
Now Sec. Hillary Clinton wants to be president? Well, fuck that noise! #NeverHillary is greater than anything right now!
Okay now! I am really cooking on completing and editing what I wrote for NaNoWriMo. I have finally settled on a titled and reworking earlier chapters of the book. I fully intend to publish it on my own. However I do want to get edited professionally, a cover made, and formatted to Amazon Kindle.
How can you help me? By giving a donation here. If 100 people would be willing to toss me $10, then I will be forever grateful for your help. In my foreword of the book, I will personally thank everyone who donates. However I also have stuff I can do for you if you send me more than $10. I don’t know if I can send out free copies on Kindle, but I can guarantee you a first draft copy on a PDF file for $50 or more donation. I am not completely done, so I can add you as a character for $100 donation or more (limited). And if you donate $500 or more, you can write a foreword to the novel based off the first draft preview (limited).
Like I said, $10 is all I am asking from you. If you can toss me $10 and you get another 10 people to do the same, I can make my goal in no time. God Bless all of you!
I am very excited to have Ed Morrissey from HotAir.com on to talk about his book, Going Red! Which you can pre-order right now! We had a little tech glitch, but plow on through because we do get it corrected!
Then somehow got talking about the national security debate around the whole Apple vs FBI mess. I let Ed Morrissey go (because he had other stuff to do) and brought in Kat (now currently on Red Maryland) to finish up the awesome debate.
No read links today, because honestly who reads those anyway?
I like to start a feature where I take a look at the distorted views of the clinically insane. Or more commonly known to us on the right-side of the blogosphere, as the KosKids. They are the dedicated and brain-dead followers of Markos Moulitsas, and they have bought some prime real estate at the bottom of the rabbit hole. This feature will take a look at how far down they have gone. I am going to link them, but I beg you don’t click on them.
Just because you know how much I love Bernie Sanders! Let me count the ways!
You think Sanders is down and out? notcinderella has just what you are looking for!
notcinderella takes a look at upcoming polls and there is bad news all around for Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders is leading now in Massachusetts, and Clinton is in trouble in California and Texas. We can only wait to see how this shakes out in those states.
Anyone having fun yet? I know I am excited about Bernie Sanders taking it all the way to the DNC Convention!
I am suspending further 100-Word Challenge posts until April 4th.
This is because those posts are draining my creative abilities and I really need to re-focus my efforts on my book from last NaNoWriMo. I have also found that I have to make a post in-between these entries, because own personal my OCD wants me to seperate these 100-Word Challenge posts. So to combat the mental break I feel coming on, I need a little help by taking a break from the grind.
This does not mean that I will not post any blog posts, just that I no longer feel that I HAVE to. I will also resume the 100-Word Challenge posts on April 4th, even if I have not yet finish my book.
So, this is a road-trip. Which is not bad thing. Pee-wee’s Big Adventure was a road-trip, and that was a great movie! However this is not a repeat in the sense that this is not a fetch quest. We are not talking about the disaster that was Big Top Pee-wee.
The question that is stirring in my mind, is this a squeal of Big Adventure. It could very well be. At this point in the eternal boy could very well had has his adventure and doesn’t feel the need for another one. Pee-wee is now in a town that is fine with him and he’s got a job as a short-order cook at a dinner. It isn’t until the manly man Joe Manganiello comes to town to reawaken the sense of adventure in Pee-wee.
Or it could very well be a stand-alone movie like Big Top was. Time will only tell on this one. Still, it looks interesting. I can’t wait to watch it.
The wind blew, the dark clouds gather, the lightening strikes, and the thunder roars overhead.
“Petty fool of a hero!” yelled the Weather Chaotic to the Golden Guardian high in the air above the Golden Gate Bridge. “Let this be our final bat-”
The Golden Guardian flew right up to Weather Chaotic and hit in square in the jaw, sending the super-villain plunging into near-by Richardson Bay.
The mute Golden Guardian hovered over the bay waiting for Weather Chaotic to surface, but left after an hour.
‘Maybe Westgate City would offer more fun.’ thought the defeated Weather Chaotic after surfacing.
This kind-of takes place in the same universe of the super hero book I am writing. More on that later. Today we have the villain Weather Chaotic being defeated by the mute Golden Guardian of San Francisco, which was admittedly very loop-sided. Enjoy! (more…)
