Giving Gift Subscriptions to CM.com

Sunday, December 19, 2010, 4:57 PM

We've been getting quite a number of requests this holiday season from readers who want to purchase gift subscriptions to CM.com for the important people in their lives.

So, we've set up a process to do just that. If you're one of those looking to give the gift of the 'red pill' this year, simply send an email to Amanda and she'll handle things for you (let her know the email addresses of the recipients and what type of subscription you want to give them). 

Or, consider the Crash Course DVD: it could very well be the most valuable present you can stuff inside a stocking.

Whatever your plans, we at CM.com wish you a wonderful holiday season. We consider your participation on this site and the ideas & support you bring the gifts we cherish most.

cheers!

<my 2 cents>

I would not recommend giving the red pill to anyone who has not at least stopped taking the blue pill.  I know I have family members who admittedly take the blue pill because they "can't handle the truth".  There are also those who, no matter which pill you give them, will have a bad trip. Besides, facts can't change the facts (translated - Giving someone the real facts does not mean they will believe it, or the fact that their facts are not factual :)

That being said, if anyone out there wants to give me a gift subscription, I'm ready :)

I think you and everyone else who is not a subscriber (myself included) would love one!

Sometimes I feel like the guy at Stock Gumshoe, trying to figure out what I can from the teasers, intro, and executive summary. Right now, diapers are a bigger priority as EC (Elimination Communication) isn't feasible with two fussy babies at once.

Dear Poet,

Merry Christmas. Your subscription is on me. I'll be mailng my payment, so I'm sure you'll have it before New Year's.

I was planning on finally donating the equivalent to CM for New Year's.

I ended up bankrupt years ago after becoming uninsurable....   Slowly my dream home, career, life, and future dwindled away. And I had no debt..... So I know how it is for everyone stuggling today just to survive, put food on the table, and keep a roof over their heads. My 'debt stress' has been active for over a decade, so my heart goes out to everyone. I know what lies ahead. Not a pretty picture.

Best to you,

m

PS:  It just occurred to me, that actually, my gift subscription to you, is only possible because of Dr M.

Because if it hadn't been for Dr Martenson, I wouldn't have been buying all my groceries for over a year at a supermarket that runs "Buy one-- get one free'  specials every week with brand name products. So if it's not 50% off, I do without for most items. So even with their higher everyday prices, it's still cheaper than Walmart. 

So my gift to you, is ACTUALLY from Dr Chris and Mrs Martenson.

We should ALL "Pay It Forward" this Christmas. For those more fortunate financially, how much money have you earned from all the free financial advice ? 

How about an ounce of gold for CM.com this Christmas? Anyone who can invest in gold can afford at LEAST ONE SINGLE OUNCE to the very man who made it all possible.

FOR FREE !!!!  ( frustrated, not shouting)

Just a thought.

So, Poet, don't thank me. It's really from Dr. M

Now I feel cheap.

Dear Matters:

First of all, thank you. I had this big huge grin on my face as I read that line. I don't even know you. Your generosity is just so overwhelming! Thank you!! Merry Christmas to you, too!

But... I am already very fortunate to have a family, a place to live, a steady job, and not be in debt. That's more than millions of Americans can say. How could I possibly accept such a generous gift if you've been through bankruptcy and lost your home and everything you've worked so hard for? Please tell me you got it all back or I'll have to ask the CM folks to send you a refund, or request to have it paid forward to someone more deserving.

Sincerely,

Poet

P.S. - I am very fortunate to have found this community and this site, and to have watched the Crash Course and read so many articles via the Daily Digest, the "What Should I Do?" series, and of course the lively forum topics discussions. I try to repay by offering my participation and sincerely hope my occasional "two cents" are more contributive rather than not.

        Hi Poet.

Well, then I'll have to send you some cookies, Wink

I'm sure CM can put every single dollar donated to good use.  It's just a token for now, But I've been spreading the message and doing other things that I'll discuss over in Forums on Website feedback because the response has been incredible.

The people are ready.  Or should I say Sheeple?

Happy Holidays to you too !
