  •  I gave to Hillary in the primaries .... (3+ / 0-)

    back in 2008.

    After all the lies from the right about POTUS Obama, I've given 4 times the amount I donated to Hillary already.

    I do have to say I am a bit tired of getting begging email.  I now get more 'donate now!' email than I get 'enlargement' spam, and we all know that amounts to a lot of email.

    I donated today, and got a 'thank you' that actually had the gall to ask for MORE!  IN the thank you email!

    I want Obama to help Obama mop the floor this fall, but seriously folks!  Get some common sense!

      people Obama is cyber-stalking me, so I had to change emails. (No right wingers, they'd believe it)

      •  It is terribly disheartening. (1+ / 0-)

        It's like winding up on the list for one of those online colleges, they NEVER stop, and they only increase their stalking of you.  I mean seriously, I'm almost at the point where I wish I'd never given at all because for every donation I make, I get 100 new begs!  It's like swatting a fly and having the swarm come to the funeral.

        I know what's at stake, and I know why we need to fund campaigns.  But the people who are in charge of the begging need to realize that the folks who will give to them are not like republicans, we are not able to 'shave off some stocks' to keep giving. We actually work for a living and get paid by the hour.  How many days of pay do they think we can continue to 'give up'?

        Ok, off my soap box now, and back to our regular programming.    And a morning check of my email shows ..... more requests for that $56 dollar donation before midnight came after I'd already given ........

        •  That's another odd thing...why $56 specifically? (0+ / 0-)

          In all of the Obama money beg spam, they're pushing $56.00 exactly as the "preferred" amount...hard.

          Why $56? Is there some symbolic meaning to it? Something psychological?
