REPUBLICAN ASSESSMENT?

This is one of the reasons I don’t fill out forms from Republicans…first of all, it starts with “You are among a handful of Republican voters in your county selected to participate in an official Republican Party Area Assessment..”

Oh, really?   Some might joke that there IS only a handful of Republicans in L.A. County…!!  I know that to be untrue.  What I will say is “Don’t tell me I’m among this small, elite group because because I’m sure you mailed THOUSANDS of these!”

Also;  Don’t tell me “With so much at stake in the battle to make Washington serve you better, we are counting on your help to answer questions such as:

“DO YOU BELIEVE SENATE REPUBLICANS SHOULD CONTINUE STANDING FIRMLY WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP AGAINST THE IMPEACHMENT-OBSESSED SOCIALISTS IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, WHO HAVE BEEN TRYING TO TEAR THE PRESIDENT DOWN SINCE HIS FIRST DAY IN OFFICE?”

My answer would have to be “No, as a Republican, I like the “impeachment-obsessed socialists” and I believe we shouldn’t stand firm but just give in to them!”

I mean WHAT DID THEY EXPECT..?  They thought some Republican is going to answer “NO” to that loaded, ridiculously-asked question?

THEN THEY ASK FOR MONEY….AS IF THAT WASN’T THE POINT OF THE ‘ASSESSMENT’.     MAKES ME SO MAD.

Honestly, I’d like to fill this stuff out, but those dumb, loaded questions are SO stupid and STOP ASKING FOR MONEY JUST ONCE!

OK.  I’m through being petulant and nasty!

DO YOU GET THESE?  DO YOU FILL THEM OUT?

    There are more than a few sobering thoughts that prevent my funding any politician: November 8, 1994: Republican Revolution: The Republican Party won control of both the House and the Senate in midterm congressional elections, the first time in 40 years the Republicans secured control of both houses of Congress. Correct me if I’m wrong but did not the republicans give in to democrat demands for power sharing in the House? And why bother filling in the blanks such as the republican controlled Senate declining to convict then POTUS Bill Clinton.

    Fast forward to 2017: Did not the GOP control both houses for Trumps first two years in office and proceed to sit on their hands while the democrats tortured Trump?
    I give think of better ways to piss away my money.

    I don’t get them any more but when I did, I printed out this picture and mailed it back to them without a stamp. https://rjptalk.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/congress.jpg

    Yea, funny, they ask questions like Should Nancy Pelosi be allowed to sacrifice 3 young children on live TV at every session of the House of Representatives using implements of torture ? Then of course, it’s all about the money when you get to the end of the thing.

    Re the return mail . . .

    Years ago I worked with a grouchy old ex-enlisted naval officer who went thru the newspaper every day to cut out articles exposing corporate greed or congressional dipsh–ery.

    Now this was back when they’d send you self-addressed stamped envelopes for your response.

    Any time he got one asking for contributions, he’d load up the SASE with a wad of clippings showing their faults, flaws, peccadilloes, and general untrustworthiness . . . send it back to ’em.

    If he ran out of clippings, he sent dried-out coffee grounds, dessicated lemon peels, and other garbage.

    Not too many of ’em give you SASE these days.

    And such obvious stupid questions….they must think we’re stupid children.

    I won’t go so far as to say all Republicans are a waste to support…there are MANY young men and women running across the country against really GHASTLY leftist candidates we MUST kick out, and I’d love to support young Republicans…..I just can’t do it right now in any meaningful, helpful way..

    If I’m gonna donate, it’s gonna be to one of my grandchildren, not a politician.

    And if I give money to an organization, it’ll be somethin like an animal shelter or veterinary hospital, someplace where I KNOW it’ll be put to good use and bring a little comfort to a living being.

    My wife donates considerable cash to her church, but since it’s a small parish with low- to middle-income families, I can see how it gives comfort and hope to people who need ’em.

    And for years I’ve regularly taken boxes of things we no longer use — old bedsheets, clothing, shoes, toys, tableware — to a tiny rundown church in a very bad neighborhood, confident that the preacher or minister will get the stuff to somebody who’ll use it and appreciate it.

    No way will I give cash to an organization with a CEO making hefty 6-figure income and corporate offices bigger than my entire house.

    TONS . . . that’s TONS of slick-paper flyers and stiff, slick mailers will inundate our mailboxes again this summer, all of which will change no one’s mind and merely clog up landfills.

    I sure’s hell don’t wanna contribute to any of that.

    Mal, I DO remember Evergreen College now that you mention it. Actually, schools up in Washington State, Oregon, etc., are known for being REALLY LIBERAL…Darned if I can think of the names now, but many of our high schoolers get sports scholarships to them and I cringe, knowing they’ll be politically destroyed up there….sad…..
    And MAL….not only was I chosen, but my sister Cathy was ‘chosen’…As I just said to her “Imagine that of ALL the people in LA County YOU AND I, SISTERS< are so special they chose us?" Just have to laugh! She, too, hasn't given money in YEARS, so……"don't bother RNC…and tell Trump to stop waving a Bible that doesn't belong to him in front of St John's Chapel as if that means something because now Conservative friends are mocking him on Facebook and elsewhere…" He's losing voters so fast my head's spinning 😦

    A Trump-supporting dear friend just called…a church member sent an email around saying how awful Trump is stirring up trouble with the demonstrators and my friend said they're all emailing back in AGREEMENT! Nothing said about OUR COMMUNITIES BEING DESTROYED????

    I give money to the Republican Party. Not much, but enough to insure a steady stream of snail mail of the description you give. For that I am a Gold Card Member of whatever fan club they are naming after Trump. Sometimes I give money to senatorial or congressional candidates which I consider more important.

    Of course, I promptly threw away the gold membership card they sent me, and I throw away all the other garbage. I give when I want, and that’s about it.

    Years ago when the Publisher’s Clearing House Sweepstakes were the thing, they would send
    a horrendous amount of stuff, along with a Yes Enter Me, and a No I Don’t Want Your Stuff return postage envelopes. I had fun sending the NO envelopes back to them with all the junk and brochures they had sent me crammed inside. Apparently, I was not the only one doing this because they stopped with the return postage stuff.

    In the early days of email spam, there were some legitimate advertising emails. Since I never asked for them, I would occasionally return their email with about 5 megabytes of useless spreadsheets attached. It didn’t deter them, but I felt good that I could fight back.

    I HATE push-pull surveys. It’s an insult to my intelligence. I think I filled in one about 40 years ago. Our MO has been to give to candidates – not always the party chosen. I sent a big (for me) check to Devin Nunes with a “thank you” for Operation Medusa. They’re gunning for him. He’ll know how to use the $$$ well.

    BOB, SOMEBODY has to give them money, I suppose….and I admire that, really. Particularly for certain of the Republicans, like BAYSIDER said she supports Nunes. Honestly, I might have but get tired of the constant pleas for money, get ticked off, and throw the thing away.

    Baysider, Devin Nunes is about the only one I’d support…or Jim Jordan.

    I’m tired of the RNC saying HOW MUCH TRUMP HAS RAISED and getting emails “From” DJT saying he’s getting worried that I’m not sending him money.

    BITE ME. And, by the way, if he’s lost my Conservative Bro-in-Law, he’s lost a LOT of Conservatives….

    Oh, and did you hear he did NOT do what all the media was ragging on yesterday…? He did NOT have protesters tear gassed so he could grab that (ridiculous, by the way) photo op holding a Bible in his hands.
    “Is it your Bible, Mr. Trump?” the media asked.
    “it’s A Bible,” he responded.

    I DID NOT RIGHT THIS, I JUST REC’D IT IN AN EMAIL, BUT I DO MOSTLY AGREE AND KNOW YOU WILL!:

    “Whether or not you support President Trump, you need to read this. This guy, J Mac, says what I have thought and I bet you have too, at least now and then. Need to share this!
    By J Mac Daughety, 14 hrs • Public
    My position on President Donald Trump:
    Make no mistake…I’m not posting this for debate. I don’t seek or need commentary. It’s ok if you don’t agree because we are all entitled to opinions.
    Just consider this…… when you think the President is a jerk; he is. He’s a New Yorker. He’s crude and can be rude. He gets his feelings hurt and he’s a hothead. When hit, he hits back, harder.
    The media hates it when he tweets. Why? Because he gets information out, they don’t want to report.
    Let me tell you what else:
    He is a guy that demands performance. If you don’t work as hard as he does; you’re fired!
    He is a guy that asks lots of questions.
    The questions he asks aren’t cloaked in fancy “political” phrases; they are “why the hell…” questions.
    For decades the health industry has thrown away billions of face masks after one use. Trump asks, “why the hell are we throwing them away? Why not sterilize them and use them numerous times?” They called him stupid. What are they doing now? Sterilizing face masks.
    He’s the guy that gets hospital ships readied in one week when it would have taken bureaucrats weeks or months to get it done.
    He’s the guy that gets temporary hospitals built in three days…. to which “they” said no way he could do it.
    He’s the guy that gets auto industries to restructure to build ventilators in a business that’s highly regulated by agencies that move like sloths.
    He’s the guy that asks “why aren’t we using drugs that might work on people that are dying; what the hell do we have to lose?”
    He’s the guy that restricted travel from China when the Democrats and liberal media were screaming “xenophobia” and “racist.” Now they’re wanting to know why didn’t he react sooner?
    He’s the guy that campaigned on securing the border – protecting America – in the face of screaming Democrats and the liberal media. (Both Clinton and Obama talked about a crisis at the border and Obama did some things to address the crisis, but they proved insufficient.)
    When Trump shut down borders in the midst of the coronavirus virus, they screamed louder. Then the rest of the world followed suit, including the European Union with travel between their member countries.
    His policy is always ‘America First.’
    For many years we have complained about sending billions abroad, while Americans suffer here. He’s minimized that outflow of money.
    Has he made mistakes? Yes. Everyone I know has and does. The “experts” wouldn’t and haven’t done any better.
    Does he change his mind? Yes, who doesn’t?
    Trump is working harder than I’ve ever seen a President work. Twenty-four-hour days.
    He isn’t hiding in his office; he’s out front – Briefing – every day.
    When he offers hope, they say he’s lying. When he’s brutally straight forward, they say he should offer more hope.
    It’s a no-win situation, with the “main stream media” but he will not be deterred.
    I’ll take this kind of leadership six days a week and twice on Sunday over a “polished, nice guy” politician who reads prepared speeches from a teleprompter and answers pre-scripted questions.
    Donald Trump is my President!”

    I’m glad you corrected about the tear gas.
    There are many of us who are thrilled he stepped out and went to that church and “reclaimed” it.
    Did “peaceful protesters” get moved so that he could go?
    Yep.
    That’s what the Secret Service does. Clear the way for the President.
    If those protesters are so dense that they intend to not let him pass?
    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
    I am so tired of hearing about “peaceful protesters”.
    They are cover for the bad guys and know it.
    And if they don’t, sorry they went to public school.
    Antifa is a covert group, financed by Soros, et al,

    It’s like Moriarity from Holmes.
    “He is the organiser of half that is evil and of nearly all that is undetected in this great city…”
    But as a designated terrorist group, they can be RICO’d.
    This is all part of the ongoing Civil War.
