Your Gifts Are Appreciated: How Obama Wants Your Money When Real Causes Actually Need Your Money
For the record, I have a few important causes. Back when I lived in San Francisco, I had a homeless friend I would gift clean socks and dinner and $20 bills to but now that I'm in DC, I stick to animal rights. Two of my cats are Washington Humane Society alumni and I've adopted one death row inmate from New York's Animal Care & Control who would have died had I not taken her in.
That said, Obama wants your presents. It's not enough that George Clooney and Sarah Jessica Parker have dinners to fundraise for the fucker, you better not take wedding china when you can give to the Obama campaign!
Got a birthday, anniversary, or wedding coming up?
Let your friends know how important this election is to you—register with Obama 2012, and ask for a donation in lieu of a gift. It’s a great way to support the President on your big day. Plus, it’s a gift that we can all appreciate—and goes a lot further than a gravy bowl.
Setting up and sharing your registry page is easy—so get started today.
Give me a fucking break! People are starving in Somalia, Pakistanis are being nuked by American drones and this asshole wants YOU to fund his campaign?
Instead of wasting your money on American political campaigns, why not try funding a small village, or giving to children who haven't eaten for days?
A small flock of chickens can have a huge effect on a family’s fortunes: eggs can be used for meals, or women can sell them in local markets to earn cash for other needs, such as repairing the house or sending children to school. Chickens are relatively low-maintenance animals, which is an important consideration for families who’ve lost everything in disasters like the Pakistan floods. We provide chickens to families so they can take charge of their own recovery.
Sure, instead of spending $80 on tolls from DC to NY I could have given to a presidential campaign but instead I wanted to save a REAL life.
JDA loyal, meet Cheddar the cat. She was scheduled to die in New York on May 25th but instead, I promised to come grab her, drove 250 miles and picked her up sick and sniffling from New York Animal Care & Control and gave her a safe, comfortable home in DC where she could live out her days happy, loved and healthy. But Obama still wants your money for HIS campaign while he's out there nuking kids in Pakistan and selling away your rights on a daily basis.
Let's keep it in perspective, folks. Spend your money wherever you want, I won't hate. Personally I will not give a dime to any of these political fuckers when animals die every day in our country and children are starving and Americans can't put food on their own tables. But hey, whatever it takes to get elected, right?
Look at that cat and tell me you'd rather put your money toward some puppet of the establishment's campaign over the life of a real living breathing creature on God's green Earth over electing yet another asshole who is just going to perpetuate the assholery of the asshole before him. Let's keep our priorities straight, eh?
