I don't make it a habit to sit at the dinner table with criminally insane narcissists.

"The kind of politics we believe in"? You mean like a heinous false flag op that demolished the New York skyline, killed 3,000 innocents in the Twin Towers, and greenlighted the spending of billions on illegal and immoral perennial warfare? You mean like murdering tens or hundreds of thousands of civilian non-combatants (including children) in order to steal other nations' resources for which you refuse to legitimately pay or trade while your own citizens lose jobs, homes, schools, hospitals, and investments? You mean like indeterminate detention, extrajudicial killings, torture, domestic spying, drone assassinations, flouting the Constitution and our international covenants, and converting the government into a full-on Orwellian police state? You mean like being sexually assaulted at airports and clubbed and maced by police at demonstrations?

I don't customarily dine with genocidal psychopaths. I hope you choke on it.

Lindy --

We're organizing another dinner with folks like you, and I hope you'll take me up on the offer.

Pitch in $3 or whatever you can today to be automatically entered to join me.

These dinners mean something more than just a meal among friends.

They represent the kind of politics we believe in. It's a simple but powerful idea: Everyone should have a seat at the table, no matter where you come from or how much you can afford to give.

The other side has special-interest allies lining up to tear us down.

I've got you.

These dinners are a small way for me to say thanks, so I'm saving you a seat.

Chip in what you can today and you'll be automatically entered to be there:

Thanks, for everything.

Barack
