Given the much-appreciated support you've shown for this blog, if I were to open a store with shirts and other stuff, I'd want to use a goodly portion of the proceeds for something positive. Note the poll nearby. If you have other charitable organizations you want considered, post them in the comments section of this post, and I'll add some to the poll for consideration.
All charitable contributions made to the organizations on behalf of this blog and its readers would be in a manner in keeping with the Big Guy's transparency policies for the Administration.

great idea! am i the only one who can't see the voting results? :/ReplyDelete
Soldiers Angels (http://www.soldiersangels.org/) does great work for military personnel overseas and recovering from wounds in hospitals. I'm sure they'd appreciate it, since your understudy doesn't seem to appreciate them.ReplyDelete
Great idea! can we buy t-shirts and mugs in bulk so I can give them to all my friends and family on the 4th of July?ReplyDelete
I love this blog. Thank you for making us laugh!ReplyDelete
Please consider Operation Gratitude: www.operationgratitude.comReplyDelete
This 501(c)(3), all-volunteer organization has sent more than 415,000 care packages to U.S. service members deployed in combat zones, and will send another 100,000 packages this year. All donated funds are used to pay postage, assembly and communication expenses ($11 total per package)
Clearly special olympics is the most fitting charity here.ReplyDelete
You need to scroll over to see the results. Soldiers Angels is a great suggestion.ReplyDelete
TOTUS, your magnamonosity touches me, I'll spring for tee's for the whole family!ReplyDelete
Honestly, there are many good causes. Trust your heart, you will know which to give to.ReplyDelete
Ane, honestly, nice job. A good mix is gentle jabs without being snarky, that's the sign of good humor.
That is a great idea! Any of the charities provide would be great! I can't wait for a T-shirt, hat, bumper stickers, or mug.ReplyDelete
The only problem is the government may classify anyone with these items in a particular dangerous group. I would call them patriotic Americans. Yes, we are dangerous to them,
Today, government is afraid of patriotic, knowledgeable, passionate Americans, because they want to keep their freedom and liberties.
BTW, I think Google has made your blog difficult to find. Part of the way that Google routinely interferes in the free flow of information in order to favor their own political views.ReplyDelete
I like soldiers and angels. That would be my vote. Please open up the store, I am waiting to put my order in!!!ReplyDelete
I like The Special Olympics, they have wonderful events and are expanding. Thanks Tele for your work. I will keep visiting.ReplyDelete
I am so excited, I've got my check book open.ReplyDelete
Operation Gratitude gets my full support. Thank you for brightening up my whole day.
I will definitely buy bumper stickers!ReplyDelete
Thank you for taking the idea of giving the proceeds to charity!
I also want a bumper sticker, so that when I drive thru Missouri, law enforcement will profile me.ReplyDelete
I would also like a dart board with your Boss's picture on it. Or how about some targets I can use at the range. :-)
I love this blog! I've shared it with my Dad and posted it on Facebook. It's great to get some comic relief after reading what The Man is really doing. Thanks!!!ReplyDelete
you make my day in canada!!!ReplyDelete
i was the 65 person to join your facebook.
you have a canadian sense of humour!!!
I think Special Olympics is quite fitting since your Boss already has expressed an affection for the mentally handicapped. You could make him the face of the charity. I would enjoy a t shirt with your profile picture on it TOTUS. It is high timed the words behind the Man were property celebrated as part of a very historic election.ReplyDelete
TOTUS, this is a great and laudable idea. I will vote in the pole. But not sure I want to buy without some way to ensure my anonymity. There is no doubt those of us who participate in your program will be politically unpopular and at risk of having our wages, no matter how minor or grand, taxed at 90%. Plus there would be a great deal of irony if you were left with no choice but help POTUS express his outrage at us.ReplyDelete
Were you aware of this and is he not taking you along?ReplyDelete
Gateway Pundit: Obama to Ban Press From Press Awards Banquet
Please don't vote for the soldiers charity, some of them might deserve it, but there are so many more deserving causes of people who are not engaged in warfare. I mean, look at what Obama did, private insurance companies finally pay for soldier's care. They shouldn't be getting charity.ReplyDelete
Please consider donating to BOND - Brothers for a New Destiny. This is an organization run by Rev. Jessie Lee Peterson. He is on the internet, you may have seen him on Hannity. He is someone who is teaching the community to swim against the "create and maintain every victim you can" tide and he does awesome work!ReplyDelete

Please consider sending donations to Operation Gratitude. It is the best way we can continue to tell our troops deployed overseas that they are constantly in our thoughts and prayers. Please check the website www.operationgratitude.com to see letters the troops have sent to Operation Gratitude, expressing their feelings of the importance of this organization and what it does for soldiers.ReplyDelete
Re: anonymity, we will do the store through CafePress, so you'll have anonymity and security for your purchases.ReplyDelete
Bruse......why would those engaged in warfare not deserve charity?ReplyDelete
"in a manner in keeping with the Big Guy's transparency policies for the Administration."ReplyDelete
That worries me.
Google has definitely made it harder to find you. I used to type in "barack's teleprompter" and it'd be the first thing that popped up. Now, only news articles about you pop up front.ReplyDelete
It's pathetic when a search engine becomes political.
White T-shirts are so darned hard to keep white for those of us using well water that's laden with rust and clay. How about some in black or navy blue? That would be so great!ReplyDelete
ps. You're front and center using Yahoo's search engine. Forget Google!ReplyDelete
Bruce, I think you're a little confused. Soldiers and their families make great sacrifices - sometimes the ultimate sacrifice - for crappy pay and an inconvenient lifestyle at best. Thank goodness Our Dear Leader finally backed off of his horrid and disrespectful plan to pinch our service men and women even more.ReplyDelete
Please use my idea of you and POTUS walking into the sunset hand in hand :)It will be a great Tshirt!ReplyDelete
I find it simply amazing how much love, compassion and caring can fit on a standard disk drive, ( do you use a compression utility ? ). A truly, truly magnificent idea.
I feel totally humbled in your presence...
I think bruce should volunteer his town to host all the released Gitmo prisoners!ReplyDelete
Awesome idea! I'll take one XL shirt, please.ReplyDelete
OTE! (One Term's Enough!)
great idea!! I can't wait for the shirts!!ReplyDelete
I like all the choices TOTUS.ReplyDelete
You're reader is taking some flack here. Too Kool To Rule. Don't you believe it. Totus Totus Totus.
I opened an embroidery and T-shirt store in Colorado back in September. Timing, as they say, is everything. I would be honored to help you in any way I can. www.embroidme-longmont.com
I think you should feature a T-shirt with ME on it.ReplyDelete
PS. Thanks for last night. It was great. If only you did not spend MOST of your time with Teh One. :(
here is a great link of you talking infront of the white house..... I think you have a frog in your throat or something.ReplyDelete
"Clearly special olympics is the most fitting charity here."ReplyDelete
Can't wait to buy some merch... Beautifully written blog by the way.ReplyDelete
If you wish to read more about my relationship with TOTUS, seeReplyDelete
Special Olympics should be the one, especially after BO made that horrible comment on Leno (of course, not with the help of my TOTUS).
Dear telepromptress, please stop spamming your crappy blog here.ReplyDelete
TOTUS, you're the device!! Anxiously awaiting your store. I just hope you don't get taxed 90% on the proceeds.ReplyDelete
I like the Special Olympics too.ReplyDelete
Also, think about a navy blue tshirt with the TOTUS logo (big) on the front.
Can't you do both the Special Olympics and our military--for those of us who can't decide? Or, maybe we'll have to buy 2 t-shirts!ReplyDelete
Great idea on the charities. There are so many out there that do great jobs in helping the less fortunate amongst us. For those of you that suggested the military charities- thanks. My husband is preparing for another deployment, and those that send cards or packages to soldiers just like him are a blessing. It actually shows that people out there care.ReplyDelete
Dear my mom,ReplyDelete
TOTUS and I are dating. See his facebook page.
Are you AC or DC...just asking.ReplyDelete
I'd like to recommend the March of Dimes...ReplyDelete
hehe...the Special Olympics. That's very clever of you!ReplyDelete
The thing I love most about capitalism is that anyone can become a millionaire. They just have to put themselves out there. Kudos to you for finding a great niche.You gotta go for it!!
I'd like magnetic anything for my car and I would definitely buy a coffee cup...I love my Gitmo cup that Rush sent me!! And, please, a lovely lapel pin for my American Legion cap!!
TOTUS, How about an "I made him say it" or "I take full responsibility" clothing/nick nack line - that's pretty much how your boss works, right? He's in deep doo doo without you and he knows it.ReplyDelete
It would be a bold move for you to take the heat off him. Anyway, we all know who really wears the pants in this relationship. :D
Why don't you offer a charity bowl off with Obama and the Special Olympic champ for charity? He mouth offed with out you that's the least he can do.
We're stuck with your meathead for another three years and 10 months. You won! You have both houses and the white house. They're cutting Defense spending. They're pandering to Iran. They're bending over for Putin, and they're alienating Britain, our staunchest ally since WWI. Now, we're even paying your mortgages because you were too stupid to buy a house you could afford. You've got the whole world, and still you have the time to seek out one little blog where your guy isn't the hero, and bitch about it? How sad. And now you have the stones to suggest our soldiers are undeserving of charity? You pathetic anus!
It's not our fault that the President is dumber than a bag of hammers. It's not our fault he's a socialist. It's not our fault that he has a genetic predisposition to pick liars, tax cheats and morons for cabinet posts. And it's not our fault that he sounds like someone drove a railroad spike through his head whenever he speaks without TOTUS. It's YOUR fault, Bruce, and you're terrified that your boy is about to make Jimmy Carter look like a f'ing genius. So, you come here to discourage anyone from actually saying so, I guess in a pathetic hope that if we don't state it, it won't really be so. Again, how sad.
Look, we don't come over to your house and tell you how to spend your welfare check, so don't come here and tell us we have to love BO and embrace the horror of socialism. Surf over to the Daily Kos.. the unemployed crack whores and oprah watchers over there probably still have a bunch of threads where you can make fun of Bush. They'll welcome you, and you won't have to put up with satire from your betters, assuming you recognize it when you read it.
TOTUS, I thought you were one of a kind, truely unique. Imagine my surprise when I found this.ReplyDelete
If vets for freedom win I will not buy anything from your store. As a veteran I don't agree with their message. I would support anything to do with children.ReplyDelete
Hey, er... I almost said, "T.P.." Not good. Say, Tele P., here are some ideas for pulling an APRIL FOOLS DAY joke on the big D'oh!. How about, "THERE'S OSAMA BIN LADEN -- made ya look." Or, "Say, that reminds me of the little town in Kenya where I was born." Probably the way to get the biggest gaffe bang for the prompt (that be a rippin' rap ditty, huh?) is to feed him horror lines that he so deeply believes in that he wouldn't even notice and mindlessly (that shouldn't be a big hurdle) repeat them:ReplyDelete
"You know, Special Olympics will be in big trouble if we don't raise taxes. Of course, if you all would just follow my lead and finish the job in botched pregnancy terminations, we wouldn't need Special Olympics."
"Smoking is great."
"Now that I've been forced to get a dog, I KNOW that I was right; dogs should be eaten, not fed."
"I hate Jews."
"All you whiteys, get to the back of the line, or I'll run you over with my bus."
"There are 57 Islamic states; let's make it 58."
"The only person in the U.S. who should be carrying a gun is me [don't use correct English, that would put him on to you]."
BAH, HA, HA, HA, HAAAAAAAAA.
QUERY: Tele P., do you ... uh... insert all those ... pauses and ... "uh's" or does the big Dope do that himself?
Never have so many done so much so so few could be so happy. We need TOTUS gear now more than ever! I want t-shirts, mugs, magnets, hell this might the first time I would actually put a bumper sticker on my car.ReplyDelete
My debt card is all warmed up. Besides I need to get rid of as many of these useless dollars as I can.
Bruce, Obama Disciple,ReplyDelete
If soldiers weren't "involved in warfare," you wouldn't be sitting there typing that junk.
LAND OF THE FREE BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE.
Absolutely ...make the products and we'll buyReplyDelete
All Hail TOTUS - Wise Oracle of Dear ReaderReplyDelete
totus..i must have a mouse pad and a coffee mug for my desk at work..my coworker is a communist and my boss a socialist (there is a difference, i know after working with them)...ReplyDelete
Coffie mug for sure! I would buy one for my home and a travel mug!ReplyDelete
Beachbum, I hear you. Last fall I often typed in search terms for Google/Images like "obama evil clown" or "obama dope" and EVERY TIME, within the first 3 pages, would come unflattering photos of President Bush.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the tip about Yahoo's search engine being less biased.
I suggest a donation to a reading literacy group, because everyone should be able to read a teleprompter so they too can aspire to the highest office in the land.ReplyDelete
I find it fitting that proceeds should go to some charity supporting vets or the troops. Considering The Reader of the Free World craps on the military at every turn it would be right.ReplyDelete
"READER OF THE FREE WORLD." Haw, haw, haaaaaw!ReplyDelete
"Have prompter will travel." (that's why he's such a lousy basketball player, incidentally)Heh, heh, heh.
"Reader of the Free World" (Chicagotrauma) is also (D'oh!) the CON MAN IN CHIEF.ReplyDelete
Yo T, keep it real and take notin...ReplyDelete
No T-shirts, not a friggen thang, cause if ya do they dos Tax you 90 pra-cent and get it back... Per congress!
I would love to see some $ go toward an organization that provides options to abortion. :)ReplyDelete
Can we establish a fund to send money to UAW members, GM and GM's new solar-powered and wind-powered cars?ReplyDelete
i love vets for freedom, soldiers angels a lot.ReplyDelete
totus, how about the wounded warrior project?
Please add Catholic Social Services to the list of charitiesReplyDelete
Teleprompter, you are a genius! I hope you start selling stuff, 'cause it will go like hot cakes. Perhaps a charity that benefits the mentally and physically disabled would be appropriate in light of your bosses recent comment.ReplyDelete
Your blog is the best thing after the Rush Limbaugh show this country has ever enjoyed. With such brains that propagate such wisdom this country is not lost yet. Prime Minister B. (I won) Obama has to be exposed how wrong is to treat the Constitution with disrespect. Please keep the good laugh as the strongest weapon so far.ReplyDelete
Please consider the Shriner's Burn Hospitals for Children where there are no cash registers and no billing department. The one in Galveston is currently closed with no immediate plans to reopen because of lack of funds. Burned children now have to be taken to other hospitals involving a critical delay in treatment.ReplyDelete
I love the ideas! Since we are on the road to National Health Care and research monies is probably going to be drastically cut would you consider giving to different medical charities? Perhaps something like Cancer research, Autism, auto immune diseases, etc? Just a thought!ReplyDelete
This blog is genius!ReplyDelete
How about the One Laptop Per Child organization? so that underprivileged kids can begin learning to read from screens at an early age.ReplyDelete
If you make it, they will buy. I sure will! WoundedWarriors is a great cause.ReplyDelete
If you sell it, they will buy. I sure will! WoundedWarrior is a great cause.ReplyDelete
How about the presidential campaign of whoever runs against Obama in 2012?ReplyDelete
