Drowning in Junk Mail – Conservative Think Tanks and Vegan Physicians

Now that the junk mail is slowing down, I can see the smaller groups that are sending stuff. I am going to try to do more of these quick 3 item posts.

National Republican Senatorial Committee Gold Card
Her Gold Membership Card for National Republican Senatorial Committee has come in. The letter claims that she was in the top 1% of all their supporters. I hope this isn’t true. I hope they give this to all of the people who send them money. If it is true then they would be one of the biggest reasons that she lost her home, is on Medicare, and is in an assisted living facility.

The Heritage Foundation
This rainbow assortment of envelopes is brought to you by The Heritage Foundation. They want a total of $75 over 100 days. Each envelope should have a $25 donation in it. I don’t know about you but I would have trouble remembering to send these out on time without a note on a calendar or a reminder on my phone. How is a 85 year old with a house full of junk mail going to send these out on the correct dates?

Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine
That adorable little kitten is from Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. This letter is about stopping medical research on animals. This group is backed by PETA. They have the same views on animals as PETA with the veneer of being doctors.
Wiki page. Charity Navigator page, 3 stars but they spend 23% of their budget on fund raising. I think this entry by Cracked sums it up best.
