No, it's not cool that Amazon is putting their support and money on the wrong side.

HOWEVER the almost simultaneous second thought I had was for the revenue that the affiliation brings in to the site

And then, almost as simultaneously (with a slightly guilty that, due to holiday and vacation expenses I had put it off):

I pulled out my card and donated to the Daily Paul

Because anyone who clicks on this site more than ~5x a day to keep up on what's going on, and more often than not - runs their mouth off on a daily basis about whatever - honestly needs to pull out their wallet and cough some up.

I mean, really now.
