9. Raising a million dollars off of this is not "victory"

Victory would be preventing the Republicans from taking this obstructionist step, which will mean almost NOTHING will happen in Congress: no laws to help people who need help; no hike in the minimum wage; no immigration reform legislation; no freaking nothing.

A million dollars is peanuts in the larger political scheme of things. And it's a million dollars that will go into staff salaries or advertising, neither of which really helps move the country forward.

I'm not happy that we use this kind of shit, that both sides use this kind of shit, to raise money. It's just turned into a giant game of using the crazy thing, or making up some crazy thing, so you can send hair-on-fire emails to people to ... raise money. I've had it with my inbox being filled with 15-20 of these every day. There was even one the other day that said "Don't delete this email without reading!!" I deleted it, without reading.
