A Message From One of Our Friends

Dear Friend,

Today I am going to ask you to support my efforts with a donation. This might sound unusual to hear a 15 year old as for money online. See, I've been involved in politics for the past five years and in the past three years, I've been online sharing my views on news and politics.

There are just days away from 2009 and I need to raise $100 to continue my political efforts and to continue to stay online. Your donation will help pay to AsherHeimermann.com going strong. With your donation, I can continue to blog and host my weekly radio webcast about news, politics, and current events. I will continue to support the Democratic Party.
Today, I am asking that you make a donation of $10. Thats all. I am not asking you to donate $20 or $50. If you can't donate $10, thats fine. Just donate an amount that you can. If you want to donate more, thats great. Every cent and every dollar will count.

Your donation helps me in several ways. Most importantly, you will help me cover the increasing cost of managing this website. Think about it, AsherHeimermann.com gets visitors from all over the world. Funds also help me improve the look of this website -- making it easier to search, easier to read, and be a part of.

I am different from average American teenagers. I'm a teen that cares about the United States of America and the world. I care about what happens in Washington, DC. I want to know what is happening with tax money and what decisions will be good for the America people.

I invite you to join me: Your donation will help keep me continue to stay online. Without your support and your donation, I will not be able to do everything that I have been able to do that past three years on the internet. Please, make a donation of any size today.

Thank you,
Asher Heimermann, 15 Years Old
Sheboygan South High School Freshman

Our good friend Asher checked in about the terrible news reporting in his local newspaper in Wisconsin and we wished LadyB and Don safe passage back to Maine while driving there from Delaware in nasty snow and ice.

Rudolph the Reindeer causing religious issues? C'mom, man! Well that is what one parent in North Carolina said and we tell you all about it on the show. We'll also discuss Bush's secret mission to Iraq which was as much a failure as the war itself and much more on this episode of Behind The Mike.

Vida also encourages everyone to help abused or sick pets by rescuing one or making a donation to your local shelter. Here is a picture of Layla, Vida's rescued pet.

Melissa Towe Blog 12/2/2008

Hi Everyone!

I have arrived in Santa's Village and it is soooo beautiful (even though it's cold...brrr). I was put up in a room at the Polar Inn on Candy Cane Walk; it's right across from the workshop!

So we are getting things setup and I want to tell you all about some exciting news. This year I have an on-site engineer with me. Boys and girls, an engineer is someone who handles all of my sound work and he makes me sound real loud and clear. So last year my report was called in and there were delays and I really sounded like I was on a phone, ya know? But this year we will do my report early in the day and send it to the Behind The Mike Studio and I will sound much better, I hope :)

Well, anyway, I have to unpack since I am here for almost a month! WOW, I cannot wait to have some fun and I will report again as soon as I can. Bye for now...

Joel & Sharen sat down with Mat Zo: The Unleavened One, holistic comedian, rascal, absurdity guru, shameless self-promoter, dedicated financier and author and we got the 411 on his book, The Rascal's Guide To Enlightenment. He also gave us some important insight on 2012 and how his lectures help enlighten the masses. Check below and on the Behind The Mike website to find out how you can get your hands on this must have read.

We also covered some news including the latest on the Big 3 bailout and the possible contender to take over Mrs. Clinton's Senate seat. Will Mr. Clinto go back to Washington? One never knows.
