Housecleaning notes.

Please, PRETTY PLEASE, take the blog survey. If you've taken it at another site, just click on the link, and it will register your answers for our blog.

Click here for survey.

Paul Rieckhoff's book is disturbing and important. Click on the link to the left, check out the Iraq and Afganistan Vets For America and his book.

We are super lucky to have such great advertisers. Look over to the right and you can choose between getting General Batiste his job back, supporting the Farm Bill, sending Grandma McConnell back to the farm, building a better website and impeaching Cheney. It doesn't get much better than that.

Please click on all our advertisers (so they will continue to advertise) and if you are thinking of buying something from Amazon, clicking on one of our links to go through benefits us. Each of the books that we have linked to Amazon through are hand picked by The Cliffster himself.

We've gotten 151 ppl to take the survey. The more we get, the better to see who stops by.

Fyi, that's not true, because a lot of us have different, and perfectly reasonable attitudes towards cookies.

I went through it again for you guys because you asked so nicely the other day, but the survey is way too long and obnoxious.

I am glad you are vacuuming your cat.

Otherwise, it could grow wings!

Thanks anon, I appreciate it.
Yep, it is long and annoying, but I think John at Americablog said that only the first few pages really count. My eyes started to glaze over when I got to the beer vs wine questions.

I read blogs because I like to. What more do you need to know about me that would be worth my spending a half hour indicating my liquor preferences, purchasing habits, and income level?

The survey is a marketing survey to help ad companies target their ads.

If you need money, ask me for money and I'll send you a few bucks. For god's sake, please, please, pretty please with sugar on top, stop asking me to take this inane survey.

You got it Scott!!! This is (was) the last request!!!

And yeah, it's for the ad company so they can sell ads for us.

We'll be doing a fundraiser here in the next few weeks, but if you are so inclined in the meantime, there is a paypal donation button under Cliffs pic.

But, I just have to say it is really interesting for us to see what the demographics are on the people who stop by. I'm not supposed to blog about it until we're done, but it's very cool for us.

Always appreciated.

Okay, here's $5, more than you'll make from my viewing ads on this site.

If you want to know, I'm male, 40, computer geek, make more money than I deserve, and block most ads using a hosts file (works great -- google it). I drink single malt scotch and ride an old motor scooter when I can make it run. Engaged, no kids. BA.

I hate ads. I hate the money that goes into convincing people to do things they don't need or want by appealing to their baser needs rather than to their reason. The same people who sell big trucks to guys with size issues sell elections. It's HUGE. Thank you, PT Barnum.

Why should I vote for ____? Why should I buy ____? The answer is too often nothing but slogans and innuendo.

Waah.

I love this site. Keep up the good work!

*sigh* Why are all the good ones taken?

Thanks for the love with or without the money, Scott.
