13. I hope it's okay to mention here, because it does eventually come back to President Obama:

What I've been doing post haste the past couple weeks or more is helping a friend who started a pet food charity out of NY state, where you know the vetting is as stringent as it gets; anyway, the need far exceeded the donations to be raised even by a lifelong expert in the field, and so he started a streaming radio station, then he and his partners are opening a new web portal in late April. I'm on the board - a pure ego trip since I can't vote or attend meetings! - but they wanted to honor my hard work anyway as a sort of head writer. I can't say a whole lot more except that 2 of NY's biggest attorneys are on the real board and major shareholders; you know they're not going to waste their time on anything that hasn't got a pretty good chance. The web portal will be split between the charity and for-profit side of the business, with the latter helping fund the former. Great business plan.

So there are, shall we say, financial prospects for me as well. For some reason my friend seems to value my opinion and support, so my future compensation will be tied to (though justifiably less than) his, and to use an old I-hope-not-too-crude an expression, I smell $ coming. When and if my ship comes in, I intend to donate every bit I can to President Obama's work and also to other fine Democratic causes. I'm past the age and stage where I care about fur coats and jewels or big cars. I care about Democrats in office, that's what!

I'm also old enough to have learned all too well about the best laid plans; but if I remain a near-pauper next year, well, I'll just keep on writing and signing petitions and voting. I'm mad for a tee shirt with that coiled stethoscope flag on a dark background with the words DON'T TREAD ON MY OBAMACARE! below. I ROFL every time I think of the teabaggers complaining that he stole 'their' flag. Notice how everything is THEIRS. Their flag, their $, their rights, their country. And it was a beautiful slap in the face worthy of Dorothy Parker. They're lucky that's all he did.
