It’s That Time IMPORTANT UPDATE AT THE BOTTOM

August 04, 2016 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Here I am, hat in hand.

I’m here with Glen Maxey asking you once again to donate to send Ballot By Mail applications to Texas voters over the age of 65.  There are small counties in Texas where voting in person means a long drive and facing a prissy election official who sleeps in a Donald Trump tee-shirt just to piss you off.

Grandma and Grandpa need you to send them a vote by mail application. $100 bucks will put an application in 420 senior mail boxes. $50 gets 210. $25 gets 100. Adopt a whole rural county for $50 bucks!

You donate here and you know exactly what you get.  There is no overhead.  There is no waste and it’s all done by volunteers.  Your $25 gets 100 ballot my mail applications mailed to seniors in Texas.  That’s the best bargain you’re gonna get this entire election season.

If you had rather mail a check, send it to:

Glen Maxey
PO Box 116
Austin, Texas  78767

Click here and let’s get this sucker done.

Here are the counties that need adopting.  Pick one (or more) and make a comment that you’ve done a Texas County Ballot By Mail Rescue!

IMPORTANT UPDATE:

Honey, So many Republicans are jumping ship that Celine Dion’s going to sing the theme song.

So here’s the deal:  We are having a lottery on “When Will Donald Trump Resign Off The Republican Ticket?”  The lottery is open to any who donates to the cause – even $2.10 for poor little Reagan County where’s there’s only 5 Democrats over the age of 65 and you should feel real sorry for them, dammit.

From now on, post that you’ve donated and what date you pick between now and election day that Trump will withdraw.  If you’ve already posted, repost with the date of your choosing.

First Prize: a Donald Trump tie.

Second Prize: two Donald Trump ties.

First prize may be exchanged for a tee-shirt I will order for you have have delivered to your front door from this joint.

There ain’t no second prize so go for the gold, Honey!

Thanks to Charles for the good idea.

  1. For you, Juanita Jean, and in an effort to turn Texas Blue, I just sent a contribution through the link you provided — thanks, that made it so easy. The Democrats have to get out the vote — we just have to. The primary in Washington State got about 34% of registered voters. Shameful! Get the voters to vote, Glen!

  2. Oh, and by the way, is there any reason to believe that Glen will be dancing on a table naked if your post draws in enough money? I’m not saying that’s an incentive to contribute (since he backed out of his promise the last time); I’m just asking for the facts.

    Late to the party but in for $25. I think Trump’s yooooouge ego won’t allow him to drop out but if he does I’ll put my chip on 8/26.

  4. Marcia in CO says:

    What is the final tally on this … if there is one at this time. I’m hoping it has surpassed all of Glen’s hopes and wishes with more donations trickling in! 🙂

  5. Put me down for turning Culberson County blue for $99.96. The check to Glen is on its way. Turning Congressional District 7 blue in 2016 will not be enough to make up for all his shenanigans in Congress. I want to turn Culberson County blue too!

    Even later to the party and bummed that Laurel beat me to Andrews County, where I grew up. Just use my $50 for wherever you need it. I guess I’ll vote for my birthday, Oct 4 (the official start of the holiday season in my house) for the day Trump drops out.

  7. Juanita Jean says:

    Okay, here’s the deal. Money is still coming in. I talked to Glen last night with his damn parakeets yelling in the background so I think I got this right but it’s hard to hear with Wild Kingdom in the background. Glen figures we raised between $5 – $6 thousand dollars. That covers all the small counties in Texas. Y’all did excellent. He’ll have a final figure tonight or tomorrow. I’ll give a report then and try to get a picture of Glen dancing.

  8. Paul Lynam says:

    How about starting a drive to get mail applications to all the Hispanic-surnames in the smaller counties? It’s a pretty safe bet that they’re Democrats, and their local parties probably could use the help, too. Maybe we could concentrate on those counties where there’s a good close Congressional race this year, if we need to triage.

  9. Elizabeth Moon says:

    Darn–I was deep in copy edits last week (esp. the day this showed up), making mistakes right and left and having to clean them up so I could get the darn things back to NYC on time. NOW I find out I could’ve contributed.
