As I wrote in a Previous Editorial, we will Remove the FURRY TEXAN DONATION ICON on the Tuesday (After Labor Day), and get back to “Normal” Business.
BEFORE GETTING INTO THE CURRENT EDITORIAL . . . Save The Furry Texans – has received Slightly more than 100-Donations Directly through PayPal, which is a RECORD Number of Donations through Galganov.com on PayPal, with a MIX Between Canada and the United Sates, far more Heavily on American Donors than Canadian Donors, but with Plenty of Good Canadians who’ve Reached into their Hearts and Wallets.
AND FOR ANYONE WONDERING . . . How I was able to Differentiate between Money that came into SUPPORT for Galganov.com, and money that came into “DONATE” For The Furry Texans . . . All Money coming in to Galganov.com for the BLOG says . . . “SUPPORT” For Galganov.com.
ALL MONEY COMING IN FOR THE FURRY TEXANS SAYS . . . “DONATIONS” For The Furry Texans. And in the past few days, since we put up the Link for Furry Texan Donations, we’ve received almost NOTHING for Galganov.com, with the exception of a Few People who sent More Than One Pay Pal Transfer . . . one for the Furry Texans, and one for Galganov.com.
ALSO . . . Many People who sent PayPal Donations for the Furry Texans, INCLUDED Notes and Remarks provided by PayPal for Comments, in Support of what we are doing with the Save The Furry Texans Initiative, which I read in their Totality with Gratitude.
Please Understand . . . that usually I send Personal Notes of Gratitude to EVERYONE who Contributes to Galganov.com. But, because of the Volume of PayPal’s Received, and the amount of Writing and Work that I’m Doing, PLEASE ACCEPT THIS AS A BLANKET THANK YOU FOR EVERYONE.
THUS FAR . . . I can write that we have REACHED $4600 on PayPal in American Funds. And as for the Checks, I don’t yet know which will come into the Post Office, which we won’t really know for as long as 1 to 2 Weeks, since it takes that long for Mail to Arrive in Canada from the United States.
And since this week was disrupted by the Labor Day Long Weekend, it is more likely than not, that we won’t have an accounting on the checks until mid week of next week. But I assume it will be more than just a Few Hundred Dollars.
SO THIS IS WHAT WE’RE DOING . . . ANNE JUST SENT $4,435.51 IN US DOLLARS to Austin Pets Alive Via PayPal. The reason for the $0.51 is because of the Conversion Rate from Canadian to American.
When we receive all the Checks for Furry Texans, we will convert the Canadian Dollars into USD, and together with the American Checks, we will receive, we will send what I’m CONFIDENT will be enough Money to bring the Total to $5,000.00 American.
Whether you Donated $5 as many People did, or $250 (Three Times) as one Houston Couple did, or the many $25 Donations, and the $50’s and the Few $100’s, we should all be very PROUD OF OURSELVES . . . Canadians & Americans Alike – & One Israeli From Zikhron Ya’akov.
I’VE WRITTEN ABOUT THIS MANY TIMES. When Anne and I Cross the American Border from Canada, whether it’s for a Day Trip, a Weekend, or for the Entire Winter (Just under 6-Months as American Law Allows) . . . WE DO IT BY THE BOOK.
As a Matter of Fact, Anne & I just returned from the Passport Office, to Renew our Canadian Passports for 10-Years Each, which subsequently requires us to also UPDATE our NEXUS Cards (Most Trusted Travelers) as well.
And as of Next Week, we will start Working on our ATF Forms listing all of our Firearms and Ammunition, which we will be bringing into the USA during our Stay in Texas, where we belong to one Shooting Range, and will be joining Another in November.
EVEN STRYKER & APRIL THE CAT . . . have all of their Papers and Documents up to Date.
1 – We have a great deal of RESPECT for American Sovereignty.
2 – We are very GRATEFUL America Allows us to enjoy American HOSPITALITY.
3 – We also BELIEVE in the Rule of Law.
4 – And as much as we would LOVE to live in the USA FULL TIME, that is not in the Cards for us, since the Department of American Naturalization & Citizenship isn’t EXTENDING their hands out to People like Anne and Myself, who are in our LATE MID-SIXTIES, who aren’t able to make SUBSTANTIAL Financial or Work Related Contributions to the American Economy or Social Fabric.
BUT I CAN ASSURE YOU . . . As you read with virtually every Editorial I Write, that I know MORE about American History, Geography, Sociology, Politics & the American Constitution than most Americans.
And Anne & I Would Never “LEECH” Off The American People.
What is also EXTREMELY FLATTERING . . . is the number of Americans who have offered to Sponsor us. Now HOW’S that for Acceptance?
SO IT’S KIND OF HARD FOR ME . . . to have much sympathy for the MILLIONS, perhaps as many as 20-Million ILLEGALS in the USA, including the so-called “DREAMERS” who’ve developed this PHONY Narrative, that they somehow BELONG in the United States of America, because they just happen to be there, even if they happen to be there ILLEGALLY.
SO – IF ANNE AND I CAN’T STAY IN THE USA FULL TIME . . . Even though we Jump Through HOOPS to be there LEGALLY . . . and we actually CONTRIBUTE to the American Experience – How do the LEFT & RINOS figure ILLEGALS should have the Right we Don’t Have – Even To The Point Of Receiving Amnesty?
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
