A timely limerick from commenter Eustace Tilley (not):
As Mariner stopping the guest,
So Sailer now makes a request:
“I’ve defied the Diverse.
If you’ll open your purse,
I’ll continue to give you my best.”
Thanks to everybody who made the first day of the August 2017 iSteve fundraising drive such a success. Nothing is more heartening that support, especially at making a living at this.
Here’s Thursday’s numbers:
14 blog posts (which I will admit is a little excessive).
773 comments totaling 56,573 words. (Thanks for all that Content Generation.)
15,986 unique visits and 46,617 page views.
Here are seven ways for you to contribute:
First: You can use Paypal (non-tax deductible) by going to the page on my old blog here. Paypal accepts most credit cards. Contributions can be either one-time only, monthly, or annual. (Monthly is nice.)
Commenter Lot adds:
For paypal, you can currently avoid all fees on both sides of the transfer by (1) selecting the “friends and family” feature (2) using your bank account rather than credit card.
Second: You can mail a non-tax deductible donation to:
Steve Sailer P.O Box 4142 Valley Village, CA 91617-0142
Third: You can make a tax deductible contribution via VDARE by clicking here. (Paypal and credit cards accepted, including recurring “subscription” donations.) Note: the VDARE site goes up and down on its own schedule, so if this link stops working, please let me know. Don’t forget to click my name.
Fourth: You can use Bitcoin:
I’m using Coinbase as a sort of Paypal for Bitcoins.
Message to the SPLC intern reading this: The IRS has issued instructions regarding Bitcoins. I’m having Coinbase immediately turn all Bitcoins I receive into U.S. dollars and deposit them in my bank account. At the end of the year, Coinbase will send me a 1099 form for filing my taxes.
So, SPLC intern, tell Heidi she’s out of luck again. And ask her how long until you get paid, what with Morris having piled up a $303 million endowment.
Coinbase payments are not tax deductible.
Below are links to two Coinbase pages of mine. This first is if you want to enter a U.S. dollar-denominated amount to pay me.
This second is if you want to enter a Bitcoin-denominated amount. (Remember one Bitcoin is currently worth many U.S. dollars.)
Fifth: if you have a Wells Fargo bank account, you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Wells Fargo SurePay. Just tell WF SurePay to send the money to my ancient AOL email address steveslrAT aol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). (Non-tax deductible.) There is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is good for large contributions.
Sixth: if you have a Chase bank account (or even other bank accounts), you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Chase QuickPay (FAQ). Just tell Chase QuickPay to send the money to my ancient AOL email address (steveslrATaol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). If Chase asks for the name on my account, it’s StevenSailer with an n at the end of Steven. (Non-tax deductible.) There is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is good for large contributions.
