Who would like to help me respond to the Heritage Foundation?

Okay I don't know how it happened but somehow I am now on the email list for the Heritage Foundation. I have been ignoring them and deleting the emails. But apparently they are concerned that I have not responded to them (I wonder why? ).

Anybody want to help me write a pithy response back?

1. Unsubscribing is easy and no "pithy" reply to

their spam mail is necessary.

2. I got that from them for a while, too

I get catalogs from Heritage Auctions in Dallas, and for some reason, I must have been the victim of some computer crossover. I managed to get the Heritage Foundation off my back, while keeping on the mailing list of Heritage Auctions (cool company). To call it a “strongly worded letter” would have been an understatement, but the Foundation eventually beat a permanent retreat.

3. Unsubscribe and berate them for being insufficiently conservative

"You've become as liberal as FOX!"

4. Another strategy. Keep getting the emails, mark them as spam.

Every time you mark it as spam, your email provider (like yahoo, gmail), will use that input to increase the probability that an email from the Heritage Foundation is spam, and that will make it a little more likely their emails will automatically be put in to spam folders of other users.

5. Mickey Edwards - former Republican congressman from Oklahoma

is one of the three people who founded the Heritage Foundation. Not sure, but believe, he told them to go blow several years ago. Also, Mickey announced just a couple of weeks ago (after Jan. 6th) that he is no longer a Republican. He gave media interviews if you want to find them.

Anyway, tell them you talked with Mickey and you to have filed for divorce.
