Donate $25 To Charity And A Republican Will Fall Off Of A 17-story Building!

On July 1st The Political Commentator, AKA Hallmark Abstract Service, will go Over The Edge rappelling off of the Nassau Community College Tower on Long Island, New York for charity!

I will be doing this to raise money for the EAC Network, that 'protects at-risk children, supports senior citizens, provides treatment for people with mental health and substance abuse problems, educates people seeking financial independence, assists individuals who are under or unemployed, mediates disputes, and works with families in crisis through over 70+ wide-ranging programs and services.

The organization provides these critical services on Long Island and in New York City.

Please donate whatever you are comfortable with whether $10, $25, $50 or more as every dollar helps.

And, at the same time, you will be sending a Republican down 17-stories.

Donate here,, and thank you!

Long Island History And The ‘New’ Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum Eternal Flame!

Yesterday I had the honor and privilege of attending the dedication ceremony for the Eternal Flame that honors our nations veterans at the newly renovated Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum!
Of course the ceremony had the expected parade of local dignitaries and politicians step to the microphone, but more importantly you had the veterans from WW2 through Iraq and Afghanistan represented there for those of us who did not serve to honor.

The Events Purpose? Helping Heroes To Heroes Foundation Put An End To The Tragic Statistic Of 20 U.S. Veterans A Day Committing Suicide!
On June 15th the Heroes To Heroes Foundation, a 501(c)(3) dedicated to ending the tragedy of 20 U.S. veterans a day taking their own lives, will be holding its annual fundraising golf classic at the Saint Andrews Golf Club just north of New York City!

If you don’t golf, join us for dinner to hear first-hand the story told by one of our programs ‘graduates’ of how Heroes To Heroes literally saved his life!
And, if you don’t golf and won’t be eating that night, you can still participate and reach our days attendees and all those receiving our promotional information by sponsoring at one of the many affordable levels or by donating an item for our silent auction.

  • At the cocktail hour the nationally known jazz musician Marcus Goldhaber will be playing,
