"I ain't sayin' she a gold digger" --Kanye West

Prior to the presidential election, I decided to support my candidate by making a donation or two to his political party in relation to his campaign.  I was proud that I put my money where my mouth was and pleased with the results.  Now, the election is long over and, like a deadbeat relative, the party continues to ask for money.  All the freakin' time.

Party:  Um, can you spare a few bucks.  I'm kinda short this week.

Party:  Hey, remember how you gave me money a long time ago and how great that was?  Yeah, I need more.

Party:  You know, I wouldn't have to ask for money if the other party wasn't such a jerk.  *cough*

Party: OMG, have you heard what [opposite] party is up to?  Are you outraged?!!!  You should be!!! We won't let them get away with this.  Give me money and I swear we'll stop them.

Party:  So, um, anyway, I don't need a lot of money...

I want to be a good little ideologue and follow the news through the Party's view but I'm hitting the point of unsubscribe me dammit, followed closely by the ever popular cease and desist!  The problem is I foolishly gave Party my address and I fear if I unsubscribe I'll be stalked.  Am I Party's last and only friend?? 

Question du jour:  Ever feel like you need a restraining order just to get rid of someone/something that seemed like a good idea at one point?

What amazes me is youngest son is going to the same college we went to and we are paying $13,000 a year tuition and today they sent us a fancy package about how to include the college in our will. The tuition has DOUBLED in the time he has been there - there will be NOTHING left to give them!!!

Mike: Did you check the box that reads "Keep those cards and letters coming"?

The Dog's Mother: Oy! How thoughtful of them to let you keep giving to them after you are gone!

We've got several of these - including a charity we haven't given money to in probably 10 years. They tracked us down when we moved four years ago! Well, I reward their tenacity by not giving them money & using all those stupid return address labels. So there!
