One!! 1! Only one piece this week!

I am on count down right now. The longest I have gone in the past year with out junk mail for her has been 8 days. 8 post office delivery days. This piece came on April 28. That is 4 days so far. When I can go a month without junk mail for her I will consider this project done.


Who was the lucky winner this week? Our old friends James Carney and Citizen Guardian phone number (202) 469-3433, and email info@CitizenGuardian.org

Citizen Guardian junk mail

I found 2 addresses for them:

  • PO Box 96302 Washington DC 20090
  • 300 New Jersey Avenue, NW, Suite 900 Washington, DC 20001 This location is owned by Carr Workplaces. It is a rent an office space business. They can provide anything from a mailing address to a fully furnished office.

Citizen Audit page, Open Secrets page.

Their fundraiser is called Greenmail, but the address 880 N. East St. Frederick, MD 21701 is for Name Exchange. They are a mailing list rental firm. chris@nameexchange.us (301) 695-6140

This week Citizen Guardian is not only trying to repeal Obama care, they want a “Constitutional Amendment to prohibit any federal control of health care”. I guess this means they also want to stop Medicare, Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), the Department of Defense TRICARE, the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) program, and the Indian Health Service (IHS) program.

Here is another version of the straw poll included in the mailpiece. I just want to point out the first question:

1. Scientific polls show the majority of Americans are strongly opposed to the passage of the massive 2 trillion dollar Federal Health Care Reform Bill “ObamaCare” but politicians in Congress passed it anyway.
Did you support the passage of the Federal Obamacare bill?

There is no such thing as a “Scientific poll” every poll is manipulated so that the poll taker gets the answer they want. Scientific American talking about polling. Questions to ask about a political poll.

“Please be as generous as you can in this critical national grassroots effort.. Thank you!”

Grassroots? Really? When is $5 million a “grassroots effort”? This mailpiece, and the people who made it are ridiculous. They could save a lot of time, money, and trees, if they were more like the scamers. Just sent a postcard asking for money. I would respect them more if they were more upfront. Just come out and say it: “I want your money.” You know that when the little old lady fills out the straw poll, and carefully folds it into the envelope, it just lands in the trash when the person in the mailroom rips it open looking for the check she sent.

  1. Woo Hoo! Congratulations, & thanks for the additional list broker contacts from these past two posts. It’s depressing how insidious the direct mail business is.
