They'll try ANYTHING.

And whatever isn’t SLAMMED DOWN, HARD, will be hauled out again, maybe with just a tiny change of wording next time, so maybe you won’t notice.

WOW! I love it when there's a double rainbow!

Maybe it's good luck?

October 31, 2021

Awwwwwwww... another happy ending!

Thanks for sharing! I needed this today!

October 31, 2021

THIS !!!!!!!

October 31, 2021

Oh yes I do. And I have.

And they keep coming ANYWAY.

October 31, 2021

I actually do get that.

But for Pete’s sake, there’s asking for an occasional bit of help, and there’s being absolutely deluged, nonstop. I don’t have the means to fund everybody who’s relentlessly hounding me.

October 31, 2021

Shit - I'm glad it's not just me.

Sorry you’re going through it, too!

He's a two-legged desecration of the uniform in which he served.

I look forward to the time when we never hear from him again. Preferably because he’s incarcerated!

I have to ask: is anyone else being BESIEGED with email begging

from Democrats you never heard of? And from Terry McAuliffe?

For God’s sake, I must get appeals from him, alone, about every hour or two! I gave a little here and there, earlier this month and STILL the increasingly shrill begging emails came. Altogether I think I’ve donated $150, and he’s STILL sending me desperation emails! On the SAME DAY!!! After I just donated a small amount.

And THEN: emails from various Dem leaders including Nancy Pelosi, screamed by that they need $375!!! Hell, I just today got one desperation appeal from Pelosi for SIX HUNDRED and 75 dollars!?!?!?!?!

What.

The.

FUCK?????

I wish I could confront some of these people and demand to know what they did with what I just gave them!

I’m sorry. I just had to vent. For Pete’s sake, Terry McAuliffe was DNC Chair. I would hope he still has contact info for the big Democratic donors he schmoozed with back then!

Again, my apologies, but shit - it makes me want to NEVER contribute to ANYBODY ever again!!!!! Shit! You try to help some candidate you think is worthy and then they go nuts, pleading poverty and desperation and hounding you for more.

Is anybody else under siege like this?

About calimary

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.
