UPDATE: We desperately need your support. So we're cutting prices in half on our monthly sustainer Premium Offers! -BF

We hate to ask, but we must. We've promised to continue our fight for American democracy in 2008, and against the continuing failures of the mainstream corporate media (and even against the failures of the supposedly-Progressive blogosphere and any other organizations who are failing their promise.) We believe we're keeping our promise, but we continue to need your help.

Please consider a sustaining monthly contribution to The BRAD BLOG. Sooner, rather than later, if possible.

Please see the blue form on the right side of this, and every, page to quickly sign up for a monthly sustaining subscription for any amount you like. We're also happy for a one-time contribution as well, of course, but sustaining our work on a regular basis is very much needed right now!

Remember, your crappy cable subscription likely costs you upwards of $50 or more per month already. Isn't what we're doing here at The BRAD BLOG worth at least a fraction of that? We wake up every day hoping so.

We receive no corporate or foundational support for our work, so it's all up to you! Hopefully, what we do is already well worth your support, but we're happy to up the ante with a few new collector's edition premium offers courtesy of several generous folks. See below to take your pick of one or more of 'em!...


  • $10 $5 or more, receive your choice of any 1 of the following.
  • $20 $10 or more, receive your choice of any 2 of the following.
  • $30 $20 or more, receive all 3 of the following!
  • $40 $30 or more, receive all 3 of the following PLUS a signed DVD of UNCOUNTED!!!

  • When you sign up, be sure to let us know which items you want and where we should send 'em.
  • NEW MONTHLY SUPPORTERS: Please use the blue form on the right side of this page to quickly sign up for a sustaining monthly contribution of any amount you like!

Thanks in advance for your consideration of support! It means the world! --- Brad
