The Steve Sailer Independence Panhanding Drive!

It's been a half year since I last rattled the tin cup under your noses. In other words, my friends, I need help, your help. and now we have a little something to celebrate with the demise of the McCain-Kennedy-Bush Axis of Amnesty bill. Click Here to Pay Learn More Amazon Honor SystemThe papers today say nobody is giving to McCain anymore because of amnesty, so maybe I can divert a little cash my way.

If tax deductibility isn't relevant to you (e.g., you live outside the U.S.), you might find it simpler to donate directly to me. You don't need to have a PayPal or Amazon account already to donate, just a credit card. (Or you can E-mail me and I'll send you my P.O. Box number.)

Paypal and Amazon charge $0.30 per transaction and 2.9% of the total, so I only get to keep 41% of a $1 donation, but 96.8% of a $100 donation!

Anyway, it seems kind of nuts to hit you up while you are at the beach or the barbecue, but, then again, you might be a little drunk and in a mellow mood toward me.

Not that I have the money to impact your fundraising in any way other than negligible (.0001%) but I am curious. What exactly is this Biodiversity Institute? Are you engineering those unfortunate rabbit/frog hybrids to create blue bunnies that glow in the dark? It sounds kinda sinister and mysterious...

That 41% blurb always confuzzled me.

30cents of $1 plus 3% of $1= 33 cents out of 100 cents...
Ergo you get ~67 cents not 41 cents

What did I miss? :/

That's why you're in Mensa, and Steve isn't.

I am indeed drunk at the moment, Steve, but I'm not feeling particularly mellow toward you since most of my recent comments, none of which were obscene or offensive, were moderated out of existence. I've contributed in the past, and gladly, but I don't think I will this go round.

You ask at the wrong time, Steve. I'm broke. Being a college student, I never have too much spare money, but hang in there until around the end of summer. I'm expecting some serious money for some work I did some time back. I'll give you a nice donation then.

Steve, I gave today and gave several times in the past. Your site is daily reading for me, and at least as valuable as a magazine or newspaper subscription.

I've learned things from isteve that I don't see anywhere else, like the use of IQ in the army. Any scientific theory is only as good as its predictive power, and racial differences in IQ explain things a whole lot better to me than "institutional racisim" or any of that self-hating ilk.

These days, when anyone mentions racism, I ask them why East Asians are so successful. These are the same "coolies" who were near slave labor for the railroads. Now they're well over-represented at our nations top universities. Institutional racism indeed.

Keep up the good fight, Steve.

I'll make a contri this go-round. One of my unfortunate discoveries has been that so-called "charities" have no qualms about using my money, allegedly raised for "charity," being used for political lobbying.

Look at your local United Way. Most of their boards are stacked with business execs, so they're tools of big business. For example, my United Way has been up at the state capital the last few years fighting for in-state tuition for illegals.

They won't be getting another dime from me.

Frankly I think iSteve has prostituted his journalistic "high ideals" for some hefty donations and perhaps a chance to write for those mainstream rags The National Review and the Wall Street Journal. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see him appearing as a science pundit debunking or god-forbid even supporting the stats about global warming on FOX.

Has Mephistopheles paid him a visit in the guise of the Derb? Stay tuned. I'm sure you'll see a reduction in the low-IQ immigrants articles and a new focus on topics more palatable to the politically correct - the beauty of multiple intelligences, how Africa was destroyed by being colonized by various European countries, etc.

Now that I've sent money, I can preach at you guys: only a Scrooge would read iSteve.com every day (and I know you do) and not send him a little sumptin'. Steve really needs the money to get that testicular reduction surgery. They're ruining his back.

The PayPal button here doesn't work for me. The one at http://isteve.com/ does, though, so I sent $30.00 your way (mere pocket change in € :-)).

Online payment is hard. For months (years?) I'd been meaning to make a donation, but whenever the spirit moved me I'd either forgotten my password or my credit card number was out-of-date.

Anyway, thanks for your very interesting blog posts, and hang in there!
