I was phone solicited today and found the agent who called to be unlistening and disrespectful of my views. I understand that the fundraiser's goal is to get me to give money, but to continue arguing with me after I explain my reasons for not donating not once, but 3 times, really rubs me the wrong way. I would not EVER contribute to this organization.
