Costing The Anti's Some Money


Costing The Anti's Some Money
I got an email the other day from Mark Kelly (aka Mr. Gabby Giffords) offering me a copy of the new book that he and Giffords just wrote.Gabby and Mark wrote a new book that's coming out at the end of this month. It's called Enough, and it's about why they are working to keep America safe from gun violence.
We know that some people might contribute less than the book costs, and that's OK. I took them at their word. While I tried to contribute what the book was worth - $0.01 - it wouldn't let me. However, it did let me contribute a mere buck.
The way I figure it the cost of postage using Media Mail is at least $2.69. The book which has a MSRP of $25 and is selling for $18.63 on Amazon must cost them at least $5 a copy.
Thus, for an investment of $1, I'm costing Americans for Responsible Solutions a minimum of  $7.69. That is a net $6.69 that can't be used to take away my civil rights.
Now I'm not suggesting you do this but if you'd like to take them up on their offer, go here. You'll end up costing them some money and you'll be able to keep an eye on what the anti's are up to.POSTED BY JOHN RICHARDSON AT 2:24 PM

I'd want them to ship it directly to the Adolf Hitler Museum or some other place of "gun control" worship.

I always send back the prepaid return envelope to any liberal/democratic fundraising request with a few choice comments, sans my name and address, of course, so they keep my name on the mailing lists. Costs them the postage, at least.

if you put something heavy in it, would they still deliver it and charge them more? :)
John RichardsonSeptember 14, 2014 at 12:33 PM
Yep. I think they also have to accept it. I've heard of people taping the envelope to a brick and returning it.

Dirty tricks? PETTY dirty tricks? Remember what the Dems did in the White House when W took office? Are you sure this is the image you want to present?  Yup !

Turn about is fair play.

Subterfuge sabotage and dirty tricks have long been an acceptable tactic of warfare. That the war we are currently in is still a 
cold one is irrelevant. Don't think we are in-so far-a cultural war? Change your name to Jerry the ostrich.

Forwarded this to all my gunny friends.....This will make for excellent target practice.

the only concern I can think of at the moment is that, if this strategy works well enough to make a difference, it would make the book a bestseller and generate more funds for the antis than they lost, via such things as paid speaking engagements.
John RichardsonSeptember 14, 2014 at 12:34 PM
I doubt we'll see this as a long-running bestseller. You'll probably find it in a year for a $1 at Dollar Tree.

don't forget credit card fees they have to pay too.
