I have decided to publish the detailed Consolidated Income Statement for the operation of the Obama Conspiracy Theories enterprise for the years 2008-2010 and have made it available as a PDF document here on the site.
I wouldn’t ask others to do anything that I would not be willing to do myself, and so I take this significant step in preparation for calling on birther web sites to follow suit and publish their income figures. I’m specifically calling on Orly Taitz Esq., The Birther Summit, The Terry Lakin Action fund and all other birther enterprises that solicit public donations.
Let’s enter a new era of transparency.
Inviting another round of PDF madness?
No expense detail?
Let’s see …. the birther response will be …. to demand a detailed accounting of your non-OCT income, since you’re alleging that this “hobby” produces no bank. You have to eat. There must be something in it for you. Soros help you if one thin dime comes from the government. And if Doc is benefitting of any part of the social safety net (Medicare! Social Security! a rotten socialist!), OCT will be deemed confirmed as gov’t funded. And as we know, all gov’t spending is communism.
I would need to include the value of the secret decoder ring which is used to decode the dots on the LFBC that I got in the letter from Mr. Soros the other day. Did you not get yours, Doc?
I actually did consider an expense statement, but it would be work. I may do it.
I am not a Medicare or social-security recipient.
Intellectual curiosity? Altruism?
Birthers won’t buy into those alien concepts!
It’s several things.
I’ve been interested in why people hold fringe views for over 40 years, and this is just the latest incarnation of that interest. I’m also trying to win an argument that started in 2008. Finally I believe (and I’m serious) that this blog is a patriotic endeavor — that Democracy flourishes where information is free.
Amen, and an excellent service to us likeminded stiffs trapped in wage bondage. I hope my comment here was clear, that I am trying to sppof the birthers by anticipating their reaction to your financial transparency challenge. I completely understand and respect your motivations, and would never seriously question your “funding”.
Too bad birthers can’t admit that love of reason, liberty, freedom (esp. in the realm of ideas) is what drives many of their critics.
Considering the various books you’ve read and discussed, have you considered an Amazon Associates account? It’s an easy and non-obtrusive way to make a few bucks, and also help promote the authors whose work you like and recommend.
The ‘Recommended Reading’ links I have at my blog are Associates links, for instance.
Totally fake. I can see the layers.
Beat me to it.
And I saw no smiley faces but if you enlarge the accent mark in “Café Press” to 6000%, you can clearly see a charcoal sketch of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec dancing, leg in the air while balancing a wine glass on his chin.
I may consider repeating what I used to do, putting Amazon links on books I like, but I’m not interested in trying to make money off the site. Recommended reading is an interesting idea.
It was clear.
Are you saying that Soros isn’t depositing funds into a Swiss bank account for you?
You modestly left out The Mother of All Categories from your Consolidated Income Statement.

I am sorry about that honoraira figure for RC Radio thing but times are tough you know. i will talk to Jimbot again. I have given up on Soros.
Soros has been a major disappointment. I still have to work for a living! What a cheapskate.
“Honorarium” is in my spell checker but “Honoraria” isn’t. Neither are in my show budget.
Maybe Jimbot will do better than Soros has.
Honoraria would be the plural of Honorarium.
Agenda => Agendum. (My spell checker doesn’t know agendum.
Media => Medium
Condominia => Condominium
Stadia => Stadium
Fex => Feces
I wasn’t really trying to point out the correct way to suck eggs. I was just checking the spell checker.
Since ‘agenda’ is, in general, misused in common English as singular when it is actually plural, whoever made the word album left out ‘agendum’ as a seldom used datum.
Data => Datum
Alba => Album
And I was just having fun.
“Brian, how do you make a word a plural?”
“You put a s’…put a s’ at the end of it.”
(sigh) “On weekends and holidays!!!”
“No, Brian. Let me show you.” So she asked this kid who knew everything,Irwin. “Irwin, what’s the plural for ox?”
“Oxen. The farmer used his oxen.”
“Brian, what’s the plural for box?”
“Boxen. I bought 2 boxen of doughnuts.”
“No, Brian, no. Let’s try another one. Irwin, what’s the plural for goose?”
“Geese. I saw a flock… of geese.”
“Brian, what’s the plural for moose?”
“MOOSEN!! I saw a flock of moosen! There were many of ’em. Many much moosen. Out in the woods—in the woodes—in the woodsen. The meese want the food. The food is to eatenesen. The meese want the food in the woodyesen! In the, food in the woodenesen!”
“Brian! Brian. You’re an imbecile.”

Brilliant. You should put that report on a t-shirt and… oh. Oh, yeah. Right.
