A Reader Just Sent Me A $1,000 Paypal Donation To Further My Ministry

So I’m on my live cam after a hard night learning Talmud, and I’m chatting on the phone and swigging my green tea and doing countless tasks while paying part-time attention to my chat, and after Guest 117 left, he donated to me $1,000 via paypal.

I’m stunned.

That’s only my second donation from paypal. The other $30 came from the Luke Ford Fan Blogger and he made me drop my trowsers.

This new man in my life, however, is straight. He’s a white bloke in China and a fellow sufferer of yellow fever.

I must form a non-profit foundation so I can get more of these donations.

How about a charter for the promotion of Torah journalism, Biblical prophecy and Talmudic humor?

I want to make my non-profit bigger than my father’s Good News Unlimited and Dennis Prager’s Micah Center and Dinners with a Difference.

I want to host meals at my hovel where Torah Jews have to interact with shvartzes and little yellow women.

I fear that we are living in the End of Days. I may not get to the mountain with you but I have seen the promised land where hot chicks are as likely to date bloggers as investment bankers.

Here’s the chat:

guest117:  Gentiles want to know
guest117:  So who are you talking to? Is he more important than your "followers?"
Darth:  Luke, whom to you prefer, Hillary or Obama?
Darth:  don’t ignore me

guest117:  Obama may be "cool" but his wife is black to the bone
guest117:  It looks to me like you are "going Hollywood."

YourMoralLeader:  hi
guest117:  OK, there you go

guest117:  Ever read Potok’s "The Chosen" or "The Promise"
guest117:  Remember the boy could not understand the way his Father raised him in silence?
TimeToPutClothesInDryer:  How are you?
guest117:  His Father, weeping over him, explained that because the boy was so intelligent, he was concerned that he might grow up "without a soul."
guest117:  So he basically entrusted him to Hashem to teach his son the lessons that would make him truly great
YourMoralLeader:  yes
