Sunday Funday: Going To The Mailbox Edition

 

Don’t you just love the Iowa caucus season? Going to the mailbox can be an adventure sometimes every 4 years. Just yesterday I went to my mailbox and pulled out the latest letter from the – WTF – Republican National Committee! What the hey? 

Seems I have been getting mailings from the RNC for about the past 6 months. Oh, and mailings from the NRA also that includes my temporary membership card. A friend says he is getting the mailings also. He thinks it is because we dared go to a Grassley town hall last year.

My normal response is to put such trash back for the fireplace for the winter, figuring if I do not respond they will get the message. But they don’t. So yesterday I got one from the RNC reminding me that I had answered their last survey. So they sent me another. And I dutifully filled it out as I should have before. Often my answer for a question was not among the choices, so I wrote it in. 

And I did include a donation of $.01 American so they would not think I wasn’t appreciative of their efforts.
