Note: The nature of the Internet makes it impractical for our staff to review every comment. Please note that those who post comments on this website may do so using a screen name, which may or may not reflect a website user's actual name. Readers should be careful not to assign comments to real people who may have names similar to screen names. Refrain from obscenity in your comments, and to keep discussions civil, don't say anything in a way your grandmother would be ashamed to read.
  • Secret to successful queries: Invite the Representative over to discuss a ten thousand dollar donation. Trap set and baited, they will come with bells on. While dining on some home grown, and cooked chicken, you casually inquire about something of deep concern to you. They will sputter (have extra napkin available).

    You may not receive an answer, worth taking to the bank, but at least you can receive, what you receive, from the person we hired to 'Think,' not an expert 'Say nothing' assistant.

    To close the evening, you need an escape clause. Perhaps, 'I have received nothing of import, from you, Mr/Ms Representative, so I will reciprocate by donating the value of that answer.' This trick will only work once, as Representatives do have excellent memories concerning those who do and do not contribute to the 'war-chest.' Just a thought. (back to my poetry, where I pick the good guy, and the bad guy) (^8
