That time of year

by redshift

It’s that time of year again when I have to fork over some cash to keep Halffull on the web. I don’t want to sound like PBS or a hobo, but this year, you can help. The Halffull store has always been available for you to buy swank goods, but I’ve set up a special deal for those of you who would like to donate to help keep Halffull online.

For a limited time, you can buy certain products to give an extra donation. If you want to donate a little, check out some round stickers. If you want to donate a little more, check out our classy halffull coasters. If you want to donate a little more than that, look into some adhesive halffull rectangles. Any way you go, you’ll be directly supporting our hosting costs, not to mention getting some exclusive halffull habiliments.

Prices have been reduced on a lot of other items, so it’s a good time to buy anyway. If you’ve never been, check it out – I promise you’ve never seen gear like this.

Thanks to a donation from hulk, Halffull can remain online another year. There is still some hosting cost left over, so feel free to donate by buying some Halffull goodies.

What a day to be a conservative. Bush wins re-election, uncontested, with more popular votes than any president since Reagan. The Republicans strengthen their positions in the House and Senate. I didn’t check state legislatures. And Yasser Arafat is ill and is not doing well. I hope Death is waiting outside his hospital room in Paris.

And yet I can’t help feeling…kinda bad. It’s like when you play a game of basketball with a younger sibling and you feel bad when you win 10-0. Not that democrats are younger siblings, I’m just not thinking of a better analogy right now. Something involving competition. So I gotta wonder, *how did this happen*?

Part of why I feel bad is that this wasn’t supposed to happen. It was supposed to be close. There were supposed to more democrats than republicans. There were supposed to be millions of passionate liberal young new voters. Where were they? Too lazy to vote. Read the rest of this entry »
