Here's your laugh/outrage for the day . . . either way it will jump start your blood!
I subscribe to my Republican Congressman's (Jim Renacci, R-Ohio) newsletter -- not because I like him -- I campaigned against him as most of you prolly recall. I do so because I like to keep an eye on what he's been doing. It's great for raising my blood pressure (which really doesn't need assistance) and keeps me focused on my current mission to re-elect Obama. I have issues with Obama, too but at least he's more or less on my side.
Yesterday I actually got a letter from him in the mail: an invitation to a VIP reception for him tomorrow (Sunday) and his re-election hosted by one of the local fat cats. It's a fund-raiser to re-elect him which tells me that nobody -- including him -- reads my notes to him and that, my friends, annoys me greatly.
I'd love to go -- his "special guest" is gonna be Speaker of the House John Boehner -- another of my 'favorites' as y'all well know.
The tab for attendance is $400 per person or $750 per couple. AND the recommended donations are: $10,000, $5000, or $2,500 per person. Yeah, right my annual income is less than 10 grand.
I thought about rallying our "Occupy" gang but the hosts live in an area where the cops have a rep being nasty and we are peaceful sorts. I did take the letter down to Democratic HQ and they asked how I managed the invite. They laughed a lot.
Here's a short video from his opponent -- I think y'all know how I'm voting.
