    Donated $50 earlier today. NRO is indispensable during these trying times.

    Thank you Dr. Hanson, Mona Charen, Charles Krauthammer Heather MacDonald and Rich Lowry for all the good work that you do.

  2. Anything to stop “Progserfdom,” thank you Professor Hanson for recommending National Review.

    Natural Law tells us no one has a right to unjustly aggress upon our body, finances, spirits, souls or minds.

    Isn’t “Progserfdom” Worldview K-12 Education an evil aggression upon minds that could otherwise be free?

    It was actually this same call to giving that Hanson posted a year ago that got me into NRO and I have loved most every minute of time I’ve spent reading columns there. I will probably be giving in the near future.

  4. I do support National Review, but I wish they had reviewed my book, The Great Liberal Death Wish (2012) which predicted the reelection of Obama, Putin’s aggressions, immigration disaster, overreaching courts and more (it was dedicated to Bill Buckley, who encouraged the writing of it!).

  5. What you are professing is laudable, but in today’s egocentric society, unlikely to come about in reality.

    I’m glad that you mentioned it.
    The new NRO website is horrible. I used to read articles there every day but since the new look never.
    Adds and bloated streaming etc. etc. I go directly to VDH for articles now but it breaks my heart that
    the NRO site is worthless. I haven’t even been able to find contact info to voice my displeasure it’s so hard to navigate.
    I wonder if the number of visitors has tapered off or if I’m just a lone wolf. (could very well be me).
    Pass it along if it seems relevant.
    BTW I try to read every thing that you write. I come from a Santa Clara prune farming family so your writings in that regard (raisin farming, Cal ag etc. ) really strike home.

      Hi Roy,

      Try not to get too frustrated with NRO’s new look. It took me a little while to get used to it, but now I love it. And remember, only the look has changed, not the content. I hope you’ll support NRO any way you can, as they need our help to keep the lights on. Could you imagine not being able to easily access VDH, Mona Charen, or Rich Lowry’s erudite commentaries?

    I’ll support the National Review the day that John Derbyshire returns.

    I read the National Review in college libraries since 1959 until I had the money to subscribe in 1968 and kept my subscription until the firing of John Derbyshire a few years ago. I let my subscription lapse with a heavy heart but Derbyshire’s firing was too much for me especially after the way the NR treated Joe Sobran years before.

  9. The NRO can pound sand. I once was a big supporter and reader of NRO. No more.

    The NRO advocates for homosexual “marriage.”

    The NRO disassociated from John Derbyshire (talk to me about race after you’ve lived in Chicago for 18 years).

    Mark Steyn – the best conservative commentator ever – left the NRO.

    The NRO is now the “Jeb Bush” of conservatism. Bye, bye, NRO. I won’t give you a penny.
