Legal Insurrection readers may recall that my son is participating in the Serra High Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC), and many kindly contributed to the annual fundraiser. The unit is now in the midst of the 2018 fundraiser, and I would like to ask for your support again. If you wish to contribute, please click HERE, and you will find the Vertical Rise site from which to make your much appreciated contribution.

I'm taking nothing for granted on the Kavanaugh confirmation vote Saturday, October 6, 2018.  Voting time is in flux, could be as early as 3 p.m. Eastern or as late as 5 p.m. We will have live coverage. While it appears Kavanaugh will be confirmed now that Flake, Collins and Manchin are Yes votes, it's ain't over until it's over. Will they still be Yes tomorrow afternoon?

The Algemeiner "was founded in 1972 by famed journalist Gershon Jacobson as Der Algemeiner Journal and was originally published in Yiddish." It's now one of a core of "Jewish" publications, but unlike some leftist publications like The Forward, it's more moderate in its politics. We often link to Israel and BDS-related stories that run in The Algemeiner. In that regard, there's an overlap with our coverage of those issues.

When Amazon s***canned us from the Amazon Associates program, it made a point to tell us it was holding back and would not pay us any money we had accumulated as referral fees:
"... Amazon will not pay you any outstanding advertising fees related to your account ...."
I don't know how much Amazon took from us, because by the time I received Amazon's notice that we were terminated, the data was wiped clean as to unpaid earnings when I logged in. It's probably not a Yuge amount, certainly not in comparison to Amazon's capitalization and Jeff Bezo's net worth.

Not for nothing, there is life after Amazon. Walmart.com isn't quite up to Amazon's website ease of use, depth of user reviews, or breadth of product, but it's getting a lot better. And the price is the price and the shipping (or free shipping) is what it is. Do a test at Amazon, price products using Prime for "free" two-day shipping, then price the products without Prime with regular shipping.

Saturday, May 12 is the first official Cultural Appreciation Day here at Legal Insurrection. If you've followed the news lately (and we assume that if you're a regular reader, you do), you've been MADE aware that something as innocuous as a thrift store prom purchase triggers half the internet. The social justice warriors beam in from social justice utopia to be judgy, vile, and completely ignorant bullies over something they call "cultural appropriation."
