Kinda Creepy Email From Obama Organization Targets Deadbeat Donors Like Me
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 09/29/2013 1:35:01 PM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

As a blogger, I subscribe to the email lists of some organizations whose goals I do not, shall we say, necessarily embrace. Among them is Organizing For Action, the successor to the 2012 Obama campaign. As you can imagine, although I read OFA's messages with interest, I don't succumb to its frequent appeals for funds.

You might think OFA might let me loaf along on its list, but no. Just now arrived an email I'd call kind of creepy. Start with the subject line [emphasis added throughout]: "Mark: Not an OFA donor". Whoah: so this is not just a generic pitch to all who haven't coughed up: they're calling me out by name! The body of the message informs me that "according to the records associated with this exact email address," I haven't donated. "Exact email address"? They've got me nailed dead to rights!

More here.

I, too, get their emails because it’s good to hear the spiels they use with their stormtroopers. I agree that it’s creepy that they don’t just keep records of who donates (the law) but who hasn’t. I’m taking my name off of their email list.

Dear Mark,

We see you haven’t donated to Organizing For America.

We also see you have a colonoscopy and a CT Scan scheduled.

Would be a real shame if someone else took those appointments, you know, someone who DONATED to Organizing For America.

Looking forward towards your generous contribution!

Hugs and Kisses,

Organizing For America

LOL! Sorry, Mark, but in your case, our panel has determined that setting broken bones after a car wreck constitutes cosmetic surgery which is not covered. Have a nice hike home!

Tell them that anyone who provides the Feds more $$ than they are receiving is, by definition, NOT A DEADBEAT DONATOR.

Tell them that you gave at the Dept. of Treasury. They can then go to the DoTreas. and get their usual crony payout.

Go ahead man, first one’s free.
What’s the matter, afraid of a little totalitarianism?
We’re not like the republicans, you DO want a better
life don’t you? Just $5 and you can be one of us.
Don’t forget to wash your car, it needs it.
Oh, and take that Limbaugh sticker off the back
bumper it looks stupid. We’ll send you a correct
sticker in the mail.
Thank you for your forthcoming support.
Nice house you have there, you didn’t build it
but it would be a shame if anything happened to it.

The question to be asked is: “If it is in the Nation’s best interest to shut down the Government, then why are there only TWO Federal Politicians, Obama and Reid, loudly advocating shutting down the US Federal Government?

Obama has MANY reasons to shutdown the Federal Government such as:

1.) A headline grabbing story that will distract attention from the Impeachable scandals of:

Benghazi Massacre Dereliction of Duty by Obama as CIC;
Obamacare Insurance managed by the corrupt IRS;
IRS harassment of political opponents of Obama;
Use of the NSA by Obama to spy on everybody in the USA;
etc, etc.

2.) The use of fear of a shutdown might help to protect defunding and eventual abolishment of Obama’s narrowly focucused ideological agenda of an European-style, failure-prone, Marxist, monopoly of the US Medical Insurance Industry.

3.) Spreading fear and blame might also preserve Obama’s power to increase Obamacare Insurance premiums on an annual basis.

*This would be highly advantageous to Obama as the increase in mandatory insurance premiums would not be a tax, as the “unexpected market conditions” would be given as the reason for the increase.

*Also there would be no need to ask for the “Advice and Consent” of Congress, as the IRS would be in complete control of all income and medical records.

4.) The last reason is the most important for Obama, personally: America would at last no longer be a Nation where the Liberty to choose ones own family destiny could ever exist again.

As for Reid, the best guess I have is that he wants a Government Monopoly of the Medical Insurance Industry. Well, to be fair, Reid calls for a “single payer” system.

My guess is that multi-millionaire Reid, nearing Federal retirement, owns a lot of stock in some companies that are tied to a “single payer” system.

Maybe the NSA, or the IRS can find out for us?

I’m going to as my US Senator from TEXAS, The Esteemed Senator John “To Hell with my voters” Cornyn to check on this for me - - - .

I was thinking about that song, too. It kind of makes Henley the prophet of things to come.

FWIW, I did the "unsubscibe" thing. I'll see if it does any good.
