We've got loads of readers, including lots of regular readers. We've got news you can't find anywhere else. But we don't have many people who are willing to help us out with a donation. That makes no sense! You people who come to our site all know that it takes time and resources to do what we're doing here. So why can't you all support what you find valuable and important?
It's time for all our readers to step up and support ThisCantBeHappening! Hey, we're just looking for $5 per person per year. Is that too much to ask for? If you'd all do that little thing, this outfit could really blossom into something dangerous!
Hey, for over two years now, we at TCBH! have been squeezing in our reporting and writing during breaks in our day jobs. And we're getting results. Our circulation for year one of publication was 1 million reads. This past year ended June 1, we hit 1.5 million reads -- a pickup of 50%!
We are pretty damned proud of the work we've been able to do, too, breaking news that nobody else, including the alternative media, are covering, and publishing articles that almost nobody else will run, and that often includes progressive news aggregator sites like TruthOut and Common Dreams. For example, you'll note a gaping hole at both those sites where our story on Dr. Kristin Neuhaus ought to be, but nevermind, the story of her courageous fight against the anti-abortion witch hunters in the Kansas GOP was front and center here at TCBH!
You also didn't read in those online progressive sites, or anywhere else, about all the documents that the National Lawyers Guild has obtained proving an Obama administration role in coordinating the brutal police crackdowns on the occupy movement, or about how Komen for the Cure was getting substantial funding from a drug company, AstraZeneca, that also makes the pesticides that contribute to breast cancer. You can only find that outrageous information here, at ThisCantBeHappening!, where we diligently dig it up and put it out there.
We don't ask you to reward us for these kinds of things with your financial support. We ask you to support us going forward, because if you do, we can afford to take the time away from our day jobs to report and write these kinds of important stories. If we don't do it, nobody does. If just 30,000 of you who check us out regularly were to each give us $5 a year, we'd have $150,000 to work with, and this site would become a force to reckon with.
So please, slide your cursor over to the right side of this page, and then scroll down to the Paypal button, click it, and make a donation in any amount you can afford to support ThisCantBeHappening!, the real deal alternative online newspaper. When you have some more spare cash, come back and do it again. We'll make it worth your while. If you don't use Paypal or a credit card, send us cash or a check made out to David Lindorff/TCBH at POB 846, Ambler, PA 19002
