I am incredibly liberal. And I am a do-gooder. I plant trees, volunteer my time, donate my money, and generally do what I can for causes that I back.Agreed!! Take your clipboards to communities that don't already back your cause. Or is it just about money and not votes? (Staff at EQ/CA replied to this tweet last month that they come to NV because we contribute the most money. Tweet since removed.)
But I have to tell you. I absolutely hate the people who stand on the corner of 24th and Noe. They drive me nuts. I try to be cordial. But it's hard. I live on 24th and Noe and work on 24th as well. Which means I pass these people 4-5 times a day. I'm sick of being solicited for passing prop 8, caring about a woman's right to chose and saving the whales. I support all these things, but I'm sick of being solicited.
So how do you react to them? Smile and say "sorry" like you would to any panhandler? Cross the street to avoid them? Give them time/money? Our favorite tactic is to act like they don't exist.
