Obama is flooding my inboxGo to post: Announcements » Obama is flooding my inbox
I guess the Tea Party folks being targeted by the IRS are just overly sensitive because apparently Obama supporters love records being kept on them so much that they are apt to pony up a few bucks for the privilege.Right now we're putting together the list of everyone who's stepped up to own a piece of what we're building together -- so far, you're not on it. (You can take care of that right now.)According to the records associated with this exact email address:-- Organizing for Action member: Pending-- Suggested donation: $5You can see here in the image that my email is flooded with messages in the past few days from Organizing for Action, the same "grass roots" organization as Obama for America, then Organizing for America, that has been used to track supporters and whip up support for every progressive cause and Obama whim since his 2008 campaign began. Emails are from everyone from the regular OFA lackey to Grant Campbell, Chief of Staff, Organizing for Action, to Barack Obama himself. In the emails they say "Let's be sure people don't believe this crap." and President Obama himself says "A group of far-right Republicans in Congress is obsessed with making an ideological point" and calls Republicans and those fighting Obamacare "reckless and irresponsible" In one (or more, I can't read them all) of the emails Obama calls on his followers:"As we get closer to the September 30th deadline, that might mean picking up the phone, getting the facts out to friends on social media, or showing up at your local congressional office. OFA will be asking a lot of you, and I hope you'll get involved."So when the government shuts down and everyone is running around playing the blame game and seeking out the horrible affects of unneeded government employees not working and unneeded services being stopped, I will be cuddling up with all my email reading to do and wishing this could last as long as the national debt.
