Just gave my last tranche of donations I think.

Told my wife this morning I was going to go over amount I had pledged to give. I also told her if it wasn't OK I would reach in my personal stash. She said, no I've got no problem but tell me why. I went on to tell her I would feel terrible when Joe was elected to not give him the Senate he needs to fix America.

My final list was Hegar, Greenfield, Ossoff, Bullock, Bollier, Jones and Espy Just because it was right. I also gave to food banks earlier prompted by a two to one match by my former employer. Probably 5 times as much as I've ever given. But as a failed pResident said. What have you got to lose?

Has anyone heard from our donation whisperers?

I know I'm not the only one looking for guidance on where to put money to do the most good. So many really plugged in people. I have a few bucks left.

Any one else watch last nights FBI declassified TV show?

I found it riveting. Actual FBI agents and files tracking a Russian spy cell for about ten years. Video of dead drops and handoffs of money and intel. John Podesta and clips of Obama. I thought timing was perfect. It shows how FBI counterintelligence used to work. Now all Putin needs to do is as the pResident. If you can find it watch it.

One story from a positive night phonebanking in South Central Mi. 15th week

A positive night overall. One of my first calls was to a 97 year old man. I actually thought for a second about not calling, however I reminded myself of the experiences I've had this cycle with people who had their own crisis or just really needed to talk. It didn't start all that well as the gentleman said he couldn't hear me. I introduced myself again only louder, he complained that the little cell phone made it hard to hear. At this point I am shouting into my phone. I ask if he's supporting Joe. He replies I don't talk politics. At that point I say OK what do you want to talk about. He pauses and says I won't talk politics but Joe Biden is a gentlemen. A mic. drop moment from a 97 year old guy.
