I just donated the $2800 max contribution

 
to Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Sherrod Brown.

I am reserving $2800 for Beto O'Rourke

I am posting this because I am happy about doing it to get a REAL Democrat elected as POTUS.

(And also to compete with several seemingly coordinated threads of how they have donated $27)


 Who are these people that they have 11.2K lying around that they can't wait to give away?

I have never in my life had that kinda scratch, that I could part with it on a whim, knowing that even if one of the candidates win, I will have given
 nearly 9k to losers.

If they have that kind of money, wouldn't they benefit from tax breaks that they whine about?

54. Why so dismissive?

I know someone in my small town Dem club who has already maxxed out her donations to Warren and Harris and plans on donating to Brown, Klobucher and Booker. Her husband said they also plan on sliding over max contributions possibly to Hickenlooper and Biden. She said if Beto were to run she'd "make it rain". (Older, retired woman who just learned that phrase and giggles when she says it.)

I can't afford to donate that kind of money but some can. When she said what she was doing it wasn't to brag about the money but to set an example to donate now and to help a proud Dem.


And...... now we know why

60. This former poster may very well have donated for all we know.

But her(?) post wasn't to show her support of those candidates so much as it was to rub it in the noses of the Sanders' supporters.


Is that DU member questioning one's gender identification? isn't that a tombstone offense? and why do they call the other DUmmie a "former poster?"

It won't show up on open secrets for some time, but if this DUmmy did donate anything, it'll be a first for him.

The OP has a low post count, so here you go. Nothing under that other name, either.

No, they don't; there's a lot of things one expects they can do, but they can't.

It has to do with "control;" the more freedom Skins allows the primitives, the less control of things he has.

My major complaint about that is something else; unlike here, they don't have the ability to merge threads, so as to neaten up the place.  It seems that on some subjects, each primitive wants to be the original poster, rather than commenting on a thread already posted.

Anyway.

Oh wow.

That phrase comes from the objectification of women in strip clubs. Why do you hate women?

Very fishy.  I don't know if it HAS a basement but I am thinking in that direction.  I am ready to comfortably retire and I do not HAVE $11K to blow on candidates -- especially not candidates COMPETING WITH ONE ANOTHER.

That listing says it has 1.75 bathrooms. I've heard of 1 bathroom, 2 (or more) bathrooms, and 1 and a half bathrooms, but I've never heard of something having 1.75 bathrooms. Maybe I'm just stupid, but what does 1.75 bathrooms mean?

... a single family home that contains 1,180 sq ft and was built in 1977. It contains 3 bedrooms and 1.75 bathrooms. This home last sold for $190,000 in March 2007.
 
The Zestimate for this house is $156,798, which has increased by $3,574 in the last 30 days. ...

Looks like they bought near the top of the real estate market, possibly "lost" $50K-$60K and are still >$33K below their purchase price. I wonder if they're "under water".

I'm going to guess that a 3/4 bath has a toilet and a stall shower.

From my experience in searching for a home...

It is toilet with shower stall, no bathtub.

1/2 bath is toilet and sink
3/4 is toilet shower and sink
full bath is Tub, shower and sink

That is usually a bathroom with a shower but no tub.
