I answer to many names!Submitted by j.p on Thu, 08/21/2014 - 12:36
I am JP, and Jeppe is my name. I have heard 1000s of fellow human, pronouncing my name, from a LOT of different countries and cultures around the world. It isn’t easy apparently, except for Danes.
I have been called by many names during the years. From jep, sjeip, jepper, yepper, yabbe, zabi, yabe and jepe, to jubber and Jepjep! (to mention a few)
The pronounciation reads ˈjæbə, and that has another word associated: Yabber, (mainly) Australian informal for “talk”. But to no surprise for the careful reader, that is also not how my name is pronounced!
I have many names, I still answer to many (most) of them.
Where am I getting at, except the Yabber?
It was all just an excuse, consider yourself lured. Here is the real deal. While a fundraiser can do a lot of good in a short time, that is also its own greatest limitation.
Liberty needs a long term commitment, and here is mine. While my 2 dollars are not going to save this world on its own, I will follow the footsteps of many before me, when clicking on that donation link in a few moments. I will make sure to move that dot, from “one time donation” to “recurring”.
Here is my commitment: from this moment forward; I will donate 2 dollars to the Daily Paul on 20th every month. I will continue to do so, until I’m broke (literally) or The Daily Paul shuts down! When I get back on my feet (financially), I will adjust the amount accordingly.
Would other consider quitting smoking, drinking, cable TV, Netflix, or any other expensive and unhealthy habits and bump liberty over the top, with similar commitments?
And about my name? You will never get it perfect, exept you are a Dane. Go for JP, just the two letters on their own, combined to one word: JP!
From an ocean away, with a sea of LOVE!
