I don't remember how I got subscribed to ArcaMax, probably some dummass pol I took or something.  They send out those junk emails and cartoons. I usually just deleted them anyway because most of their stuff was just ads, but I liked that they published old comic strips I used to read as a kid.  

Now I know why so many ads.  Here is what I got tonight and I immediately unsubscribed along with an angry letter to their editor that will follow the quote of what they sent out...

Lord I was mad! So after I unsubscribed, I wrote to ArcaMax editors:

None of your subject lines fit what I am about to write to you.  

Today I got a horrible "Support Scott Walker" email from your website.  If you think all Americans are low information people without any critical thinking skills, you are mistaken.  I want you to know in no uncertain terms what we think about you and your worship of Walker, YOU LIE.

As he told his prankster who Walker so greedily thought was one of his rich "johns", David Koch: Walker stated quite clearly he was thinking about creating a dangerous situation where there were babies in strollers and peaceful demonstrations.  He also freaking outright said he trying to kill unions as is the agenda for many governors across the nation. Talk about an entitled unAmerican, violence-promoting deadbeat!

We know that he and his money grubbing friends will prostitute themselves for a buck for their rich friends with no concern for the well being of anyone but themselves. They do not think greed is a sin when in fact it is worse than any sex sin they want to pretend they are not obsessed about. They would prefer to force a woman to have a baby and then watch her and the child starve to death while these lazy deadbeats sit by their pools collecting their tax-free dividends and force people to work for them for nothing.

He is a hypocrite. As a man who supposedly grew up in the church he should be ashamed of himself.  He is definitely not listening to his own prophet who said, "Truly I tell you, it is harder for a rich man to enter through the gates of heaven than for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle..." (Matt:19:24)

Therefore I never want to get one of your damn (and I mean "damned" in the biblical sense) emails again.  Believe me, I am sending what you did send around to my groups of hard working people so they know you are merely tools for the Koch whores who think it is just fine to take from the poor so these greedy already too-rich false Americans can rip off our tax dollars from the rest of us.  

Why are you promoting this hypocrite and liar? Got any K(r)och money lately????

VERY Sincerely,

Cat Sullivan    

GRRRRRRR!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:

Are you sure you want to remove your recommendation? You can only recommend a diary once, so you will not be able to re-recommend it afterwards.

  •  The object of this kind of "poll" (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    is to get "live" email addresses which can be added to lists which can be sold to interest groups for a few pennies each for each solicitation.  It's the electronic version of direct mail.  
    What the solicitors now know about you is that you are an ethical liberal opinionated person.  Anyone looking to influence you or people like you will want to know how many and where they are.  Your ISP will give them the latter information.  This poll is part of a data mining operation.  Keep in mind that the constitutional prohibition against invading privacy only applies to agents of government.  Individual persons and private corporations can spy as much as they want.  If they go too far and the person spied on resents it, that person can file a civil suit to try to get compensation, or a restraining order.  But then it's a matter of what's too much.

    The much despised World Net Daily is nothing more than a Republican address mill.  They collect data about their base and then, as elections grow near, the campaign consultants have a good idea where to target advertisements to get out the vote.
    Presumably, Newsmax will be able to tell them where not to bother.

    Managing the electorate is a 365/24/7 enterprise.  That's why the GOP has to be constantly in the news.

    The conservative mind relies mainly on what is plain to see.

      I am in Seattle, but I plan to march today wearing Badger colors in solidarity with WI and all workers around the world.  If they think for one minute that any American with an ounce of brains is gonna believe this crap, they are wrong, wrong, wrong.
