I understand from FOX NEWS that this company was paid for out of public funds....in other words, WE PAID FOR IT.

How can this be right? Can uhbama decide how to spend our tax dollars for his own partisan interests? Has this always been? Has the White House always been pimped out like this?

Dear Idiot Citizens,

Just because I ordered it doesn’t make ME responsible.
It was that company in Minnesota that did it.
Don’t get so wee-wee’d up over this,
it’s not our fault!!!

Sheeeesh,
Barry

the Company that did it is of NO CONCERN...

YO BARKY... those were YOUR addresses, Your Message, your payment to the COMPANY... they’re YOUR PROBLEM, YOUR CRIMINAL ACTION

Personally, BARKY... Everyone that got one of your Assinine EMAILS.. SHOULD SUE you under the Canned Spam ACT.

Worthless piece of **** ... Alinsky only works when the victim doesn’t know what’s going on...

BARKY take your little MAFIA BACK to Chicago and stay there.

How is it illegal?

I got one of those letters. I don't feel like suing. It's just a darn e-mail. Why get so worked up?

In my view, the real problem isn't spam; it's the fact that the White House is collecting a database of citizens based on political orientation. It's not an opt-in database, either. So, while this particular spam is annoying, the next use of the database might not be.

I, for one, don't want this government "interested" in me.

Having been raised in Chicago... I now understand how your idea of Illegality is somewhat ...Confused.

Sending Unsolicited Mass EMAILS is Illegal because the House, the Senate and the PRESIDENT SAID SO.

I have no idea how I got picked. The e-mail was to a web based account not an ISP account - so they basically know nothing about me as I don't even list my name on e-mail from that account.

They’re trying to change the subject. It’s NOT who sent the e-Mails. It’s where did they get the names and addresses to send.

LOL. Actually my last vote in Illinois was for Reagan. I have since been exposed to the corruption of Connecticut which is far more subtle, entrenched, Machiavellian and pervasive.

In Chicago you knew who the bad guys were. Here in CT you have to watch your back even when it's your neighbor behind you.

Sending unsolicited mass email is illegal. See the CAN-SPAM act.

I don’t care if they email me, I never say anything I wouldn’t say in the town square or on my door step.........plus if they want to give me their talking points...I’ll consider it as intel I can use to defeat them with.

hey, Ray .. I’ve lived in both NYC and Chicago .. the Big Apple is virtually corruption-free compared to the Second City. Frankly, I couldn’t get out of either fast enough.
