    Like what the guy in the video advised at its end, just say no. Don't give progressives anything about yourself or what you do.
    Old dino may even say, "Hell, no," to a progressive who tries to tell me that a private citizen is to be as transparent as a government and only a government is supposed to be.
    I may even say what I told some clown on the phone who said I had won Publishers Clearing House and wanted me to give up my checking account number, which was, to wit, "Go to hell!"
    As for a progressive who says I'm supposed to tell the world who I donate to, me dino has something stronger to say, which is, "F--- you, fascist!"

      I was thinking of that donation thing...from now on, I'm going to get a post office money order and sign it in scribble...
      That'll "scrabble" trans-parency for sure.

        Yeah, besides evading persecution from the enemies of freedom, that would also make it hard for a charity to sell your name with only a recognizable address to other charities.
        Ten years ago I donated money with a check sent to an American Indian school because photos of cute kids touched my human heart and I liked the dream-catcher thingie they also sent.
        Next thing I know I'm getting donation requests from every American Indian tribe in the Southwest. My human heart immediately went dino,
        I now have a thick cluster of those dream-catcher things above the head of my bed, another cluster elsewhere in the bedroom and some in the kitchen plus two cheap kid-sized Indian blankets.
        How many donations have I sent? Just that first one. Me dino don't like feeling swarmed by starved piranhas.

          I have given up on paying for sob stories that people put out. Let each of us pay for our own problems, and anticipate the infrequent ones. Its all about planning and keeping your eyes open and being willing to dodge and weave around changes in the economy

          Now that's the other side of this transparency issue.
          Seems we get hit from both sides, sort of damned if we do and damned if we don't.

            A charity once successfully bribed me with a calculator. I needed a new one anyway.
            One year later the same charity sent me another identical calculator.
            Since I don't need a new calculator on an annual basis, I kept the second calculator and sent nothing.
            About three weeks later, the sender mailed a complaint that whined about me not displaying gratitude for the calculator he sent. I tossed that in the trash.
            Since then a brother has gifted me with a calculator and more recently a charity has sent me a small one with a note pad attached.
            So I have four calculators now.
            I always keep donation bribe me with guilt money. As Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow would say, "Keep it all. Give nothing back."

              Boy...4!...your gona run out of numbers to calculate!!!
              I keep getting credit like card stating I donate...like it's some prestige thing...I get them from Hillsdale college cause I send them 20 bucks a year.

              The worst is the one's I get from some veterans refinance org...their rates are twice what I have on my morg. (2,5%)...they are probably getting government funding so they are just pissing away the cost of these plastic card I get every two weeks!

                Another calculator will likely show up along with someone's hand out within a year or so.
                Every two weeks?!
                I've been getting a donation request from Hillsdale College at least once of month. Think I gave them a little something three or four years ago but I'm not sure.
                I recently read an online article entitled "Money Advice You Don't Want To Hear," and one item was about putting 10% of your income into savings.
                I no longer work but I did that 10% bit for the first time today with my end of the month pension and two weeks ago with my social security payment.
                Did both transfers at my credit union's ATM where both monthly payments go electronically into my checking account.
                Yep, I should worry more about looking out for myself and who is in my will

                  That's right Dino...you can't help others when you yourself needs help...if our needs are Not met. then the value we create or have created, should not get passed on.
                  I should call that: Cellular law.

                    My softest spot is for a baby's right not to be aborted. Other than that, my mailed monetary requests have gotten so bad that if I responded to everyone else with a hand out, I couldn't even afford groceries. Lately I've been tossing the bulk of my mail into the trash unopened.

    The more government is asked to do the more it has 'the right' to demand that you have few if any rights. When you allow the government to pave the roads they become 'public places' and you no longer have the expectation of privacy on that road (school, internet or anything they might finance) which was then followed by a ruling that police could trespass on private property to search a vehicle because the owner had parked on his driveway which was visible from the street. The owner should have parked inside of his vehicle if he expected privacy. As Jefferson said, "bind all the rulers with the constitution, trust no one".

    Yep...that theater guy from here in Sacramento. That was around Proposition 8, and I've mentioned the incident here. Names and addresses of those who contributed were published by the newspaper. I'll never forget that, as it seemed so dark to me at that time. Interesting to see it as an example here...

      While our Rulelessers are not held accountable, "We the people" are held unjustly accountable for the good things we do, for standing up for America, for standing up for Reality and for standing up and supporting those that have been unjustly accused.

      Go Figure!

    This guy is saying if a cab company gives money to help a politician and that politician supports laws against ride-sharing apps, that's just a private matter between the donor and the politician. I do not agree with that. Maybe the politician was against ride-sharing apps anyway, so the the cab company liked him and donated. Or maybe it was tacit pay for play. I think voters should have the facts.

      The Key take-a-way is that the Government's transactions are to be transparent...not ours...ours are private. (like whom of what we might donate to)
      Today, due to the upside down, inside out and backwards nature of progressivism...it's the other way around.
