Somehow, the Republicans got my email. I've been getting messages like this one:

They seem to be scared.

Fellow Conservative,

My heart sank when I saw the new FEC reports.

House Conservatives are getting MASSIVELY out-raised. We are in serious trouble.

House Liberals just announced a $29.2 million fundraising haul. Theyíve beaten us SIX MONTHS in a row. Nancy Pelosi broke her personal fundraising record. Liberals are out-raising us in target districts. And Special Interests pledged $200+ million against us this quarter.

If you aren't worried, you should be. The Presidentís agenda is in danger and our back is against the wall.

Help me, Steve Scalise, Karl Rove, Drew Ferguson and others fight back ó and youíll get 5x-matched.

Look, I know the easy thing to do right now would be giving up.

But that means surrendering to the anti-Trump Radical Left and agreeing to a Socialist takeover of our country. That canít happen.

Anything you can do right now is critical. We canít leave anything on the table. Thatís why Steve Scalise is 5x-matching ALL grassroots gifts until midnight:
Contribute $25 x 5

Contribute $50 x 5

Contribute $75 x 5

Contribute $100 x 5

Contribute $250 x 5

Contribute $500 x 5

If we can raise an additional 5,000 contributions this month we will be on track for victory, but we have to start now.

I encourage you in the strongest possible terms to help while Steve Scalise is still 5x-matching gifts. We need every edge we can get.

The stakes have never been higher.

Onward,
Newt Gingrich

2. Steve Scalise who was shot and badly wounded at a bipartisan baseball game.

Last year, maybe? I don't remember when.

It did not change his views on gun control. No big surprise.

5. Push Poll

I got a call from some outfit doing basically a push poll. It was obviously from some extreme right wing outfit that was asking about my support, or lack thereof, for "extreme left wing policies of Nancy Pelosi..." I kept answering that I supported them. They guy kept asking even more extreme questions and not getting the answers he was looking for. I finally said, "I think maybe someone gave you the wrong number". He said, "I'll say" and hung up.

6. Out of the blue I am getting mail from the Trump something committee

and the NRA.

I don't know why. I keep thinking I should do something with it but it stinks the joint up so I just dump it in the garbage.

7. I received an email newsletter from Judicial Watch.

I sent back: "Thank you for sending me this unsolicited email. I printed it out and used it for toilet paper."

Haven't heard back again.

8. How I avoid this.

I sometimes answer the Republick party surveys, but use my late husband's email address which is still active although I never check it. He's been gone for 14 years. So If they send me marking crap, I don't have to wade my way through them.

12. I was going to bring this up, I've been getting TRUMP emails just last week...

I haven't made any recent contributions, and the last one was through Lamala's site....have some of us been hacked?

wouldn't doubt that Trump gave the NSA passwords to Russia, so we are ALL fair game.

I "unsubscribed"...we'll see if it happens again I was NOT happy to see his name in my inbox!!!!!

Make them pay for postage both ways.

17. I get fund raising promos from the NRA all the time

I've never been a member of the NRA. I am quite active with fishing sites, have a few fishing magazine subscriptions, so that's where they probably got my name and address.
Whenever they send me a post paid envelope to send in my money, I put a dog turd inside a blank piece of paper that I have written the words "fuck you" and pop it in the mail.
A symbolic gesture I know but it makes me feel good for few minutes.

20. NRA solicitations

NRAsolicitations
comment from a blog (DU I think)

I had a coworker who was a big time gun owner who kept a gun in every room in the house just in case someone broke in (lots of problems with that idea, may be worth a blog article someday, but thatís what he did). He even went so far as to start buying more guns for each room after a school shooting, like home invasion and mass shooting are correlated somehow. He had let his NRA membership lapse and refused to renew it because he got tired of nonstop requests for donations. To him all the membership did was give the NRA to badger him for more money with phone calls, and direct mailings. If the
organization is as strapped for cash as it appears, those solicitations may have gone way over the top and people are simply tired of being badgered for money and are choosing to let their membership to lapse.
