48. this canary did a little singing too ...

When i get calls from political organizations and charities soliciting donations, i immediately cut them off and politely ask to be removed from thire calling list. By law, they're supposed to stop the pitch and agree to not call again; most of them comply.

Yesterday, I got a call from the DCCC, and decided not to do my usual 'remove me' routine. From now on, i am going to derive a lot of pleasure out of saying NO to any Democratic organization soliciting money, and telling them why. The man I spoke to was quite sympathetic to my reasons. We had a friendly chat during which i told him that my donations to campaigns were, from now on, going to be sent to DFA. He was glad to hear i would be still supporting candidates i believed in. There are some good people behind those calls.
