RMN will never be only a memory - think a nightmare when eyes are cast back in time and remember how many people spent their substance on the lies of a psychopath who was always working for the corporations who wish us dead.

Thanks for Raising Over $700.00 -- Sadly... MORE is Needed

I used the $700.00 to pay $200.00 for the phone/dsl bill and another $200.00 went to partially pay the $600.00 electric bill. I am going to pay $200.00 to our server next. But RMN owes the server $1600.00 and the electric company wants the rest of its money by the 5th.
The reason that I am in such a bind is there was NO money that came in in January. December received $3,000 and there was nothing over the $3,000 to help with the January bills. January and December were put together on one Fundrazr widget due to hobie's hospitalization.
It's the end of January, which is always the bleakest month of the year. In addition to it being bleak for RMN, it's bleak for me personally (financially). I have to pay the IRS $3,000 and the only way I can raise it is to start selling on ebay. I have tons of things I am willing to part with, but it is going to keep me very busy which means I will be showing up at RMN even less.
I thank hobie and all of the RMN agents for keeping RMN up and running during my forced absence. Without the help of everyone, RMN would not still be standing nearly 20 years later.
On June 6, 1996 the first edition of RMN was put in the mail. I didn't realize until someone pointed it out to me that June 6 was D-Day. On June 6. 2016 (this year) RMnews turns 20. Who would have ever thought that something that was cobbled together out of bits and pieces of insider intel and sent out in emails and newsletters would ever last as long as it has!! I certainly didn't think it would.
As a backup to any money I might earn from RMN, I went to one more year of college and received a teaching credential. I taught for 5 years while doing RMN and then my husband died and my mother had a heart attack. She needed round the clock care. My choices were put her in a home or quit teaching. I chose to keep her in her much loved bedroom surrounded by all the furniture she had grown up with and lived with all her life.
That decision required me to come up with another way of paying for everything since I would no longer be receiving money for teaching. I don't believe I had ever charged for RMN before this. But now that there was no money coming in, I needed to quickly figure out how to pay for RMN. And that's when I started asking readers to contribute. Believe me, if I won the lottery or came into millions from long lost Uncle Bill... then I would again make RMN free to all.
But for now, I still need $3,000 in the fundrazer widget every month. January appears to have been skipped completely for money. We have raised $700 plus for February, but I still have bills from January which have to come out of the February widget.
I pray there are some readers who have not been hit as hard as the rest of us in January. Here's the February widget. Remember, $700 plus still needs to come out of the February fundrazr to pay the $400.00 January server bill and the rest of the electric bill.
I still owe the server $1600.00 and I owe the electric company $3,000.00. I thank both companies for working with me to see that the server stays turned on as well as the electricity.
Thank you so much for your support. Without you, RMN will only be a memory!!
