Send Lawyers, Guns and Money

Well, not the first two actually, at least not as far as I know.

I really hate doing this, particularly since I haven’t really been earning my keep around here lately, but it looks like things in the Empire have reached the point where I have to have a fundraiser in order to keep the lights on. Yes, it just keeps piling on, doesn’t it?

I know, these are troubled times for everybody and I certainly don’t want to suggest that my trouble is in any way more important than everybody elses, but… I suck at this, don’t I?

Anyway, if anybody has a few shekels laying around that aren’t needed, every little bit would be greatly appreciated.

My apologies as well as my thanks.

Misha

UPDATE: I’m going to be saying this to all of you personally, but I just wanted to put up a public notice first that you guys are absolutely incredible and way above and beyond anything! I really don’t deserve y’all, but I and the family are eternally grateful that we have you!

I also want to say to all of you who said that you were sorry you couldn’t help or that you wish you could do more to please, please don’t worry about it. Please don’t. There are two reasons I hate putting up posts like this and avoid it like the plague. One is my pride, and the less said about that one, the better, but the other one is that I know that you all want to help. I know this because I know what great people you all are. And thus I know, because I know from personal experience that there are times when you cannot help because you yourself are knee-deep in alligators, that there will be some who really, really wanted to and now feel bad because they can’t.

I don’t want that to be the case. Ever. Nobody owes me anything. Nobody has any obligation to me other than the one they feel they have, and that one’s misplaced because, let’s face it, I’m not really doing anything other than putting up stuff on the Internet. If not me, then somebody else would and, more importantly, if not for YOU all, then it would just be me screaming into the wind.

To those of you who wanted to chip in but couldn’t or wished that they could have done more, I only want to say this: Please don’t think that way. Because I know that you wanted to, and that in itself is a huge gift. Just the fact that you saw some guy on the Internet kvetch about something and immediately thought “how can I help?” says all that needs to be said, and I am eternally grateful for that too.

Don’t underestimate the value of that compassion in and of itself, because it is enormous.

And now I’ll have to stop because the room is getting awfully dusty for some reason and I’ve got shit to do so I can get back to work giving you something for all that you, every one of you, give me constantly for just hanging around and putting up with me.

G-d Bless You All!

Check your tip jar, Misha. I couldn’t begin to repay what this site has done for me. But….I do try.

LC Ogrrre - Imperial Heartless Bastard

I won’t be able to help until after the first, Misha. Right now, I don’t have enough for a box of .22 short, or even Wolf 7.62 x 39 mm.

BigDogg - Imperial Thread Killer (ITK)

Just dropped a little bit in the jar … I only wish that I could do more right now.

Hit the tip jar. Better days coming soon – they always do.

A pity I didn’t know about this sooner or I’d have skipped the SKS mags and threw in more.

i’ve got a $1.62 to my name and a letter from the IRS that says they misdid my taxes two years ago so i owe them $1900 i don’t have, but if there is anything i can do in kind via the Intartubes, i’m your huckleberry.

Only thing I can do is send prayers. Thanks to this “recovery” we are in, I’ve had to file for food stamps. Every job that I can find is over an hour drive away, and I can’t afford $30 in gas a day.

And in voting news, Free pot for votes. Isn’t buying votes illegal ?

Redc, Interesting, we just got a letter “demanding” we pay the IRS $1950 immediately or they are going to seize my corporation immediately. No previous letters were sent telling us that they think we owe $1950 dollars. We have not paid them. They can seize whatever they want as my corporation is currently idle and only making $80 dollars per… Read more »

get a tax lawyer or accountant to look at your taxes then have tem send a letter to the tax people telling them you don’t owe them any thing and they will fold.they don’t even know how do do taxes.

Princess Natasha, Imperial Koch-monger

Done.

LC LOBO

Red, GC, a thought came to me. Are these letters really from the irs ? I know that scammers have been using the fbi letter head to scam people. I’ve erased two of those e-mails today alone. If they are real, see if you can’t find a tax lawyer that will work with you.

lc purple raider @ #:

I’m in the same boat. I’ve long ago ran out of UI and if it wasn’t for my mother and her SS God knows where I’d be. Just pray’in that IF Mittens gets elected that the dam will break and jobs will open up in January, if we make to January…

I remember when my daughter received something along these lines. Tey tried to scam her for two grand. She came to me askng about it. I told her I wanted to reel these scumbags in, hopefully to my door if you catch my drift. In the meantime I had her print out all e-mails, take a check for two grand… Read more »
