These days I get more political contribution solicitations than I do credit card offers....
I keep getting them from Mitt Romney, although I never gave to him and probably will pass since he and the President have enough of their own plus all those fat cat friends.
Then I got a local candidate solicitation for a $10,000 a couple soire later this month. I had already been to two events and frankly while I am concerned over the path of the Nation, if I had $10K, I would be patching my parking lot and getting a new roof on the house. I still wouldn't be doing the awning or the furnace this year. That would be another ten grand.
Real people have real problems and priorities.
