Saturday time to sleep in, get a good breakfast, clean the house, learn about the failings of our government, and plot to fix them!
Things Trump Ruined Today:
Is there no end to this mans evil…he is trying to kill the bumblebee
Some of that “Russian Dossier” on Trump is starting to be proven true. Most likely the whole damn thing is true, Russia is probably black mailing him. His cabinet is full of questionable ties to Russia. Rex Tillerson is the proof (He is going to approve a 500 BILLION dollar oil deal for Russia, and remove sanctions that are destroying the Russian economy). Russia is also threatening to give Trump Snowden as a gift to gather favor. Trump most likely has all sorts of business ties and shady dealings with Russia as well. A good look at his taxes would sort a lot of this out.
Personally I am disturbed by how racist Trump must be to pay a sex worker to defile a bed just because the first black president slept on it, but that is just a distraction. You have to follow the money. The presidential office is not a business to be run for the benefit of the president. Trump seems to think otherwise.
Just a reminder, global warming is real, its going to kill millions if we don’t try and stop it, and Trump doesn’t believe in any of the well supported science on the issue. You in your silver years, your children, and their children will all suffer because this monster chooses to ignore science in the quest for more money. Their profits are not worth our lives.
Did I also mention that Trump is an embarrassment on the world stage…Jesus, George W. all over again, start throwing those shoes folks.
Republicans and corporate Democrats work for the bank, the bank wants to make more money, they are only too happy to help out, even if that screws you over. They also don’t give a good god damn about women.
Tom Price is going to destroy critical safety net programs that millions of people (mostly elderly) need to stay healthy and safe. A call to your senator would be a good idea, they must fight him on this. He also happens to be a homophobic asshole.
The Resistance Works Weekends!
General Strike Feb 17!
Here is a complicated but comprehensive spreadsheet of all the current ballot initiatives to end first past the post voting. Basically a way to make our election system work better. See video above for why first past the post is bad.
The revolt starts at the local level. Here is Michigan showing us how it works!
Bernie sanders should hold classes so other senators could learn how to speak properly on TV. Note to CNN, you don’t just have to report what the president says, you can actually, you know, do your job and dig up information about things. Just saying “the president says this” and stopping is not journalism.
Impeach Trump NOW! The fight to impeach trump keeps getting larger, as his approval ratings keep shrinking, talk to your friends and family about impeaching Trump, lets get everyone on board to get this asshole out of office.
Trump has a stink about him, that is getting on all his kids. Seems no one wants to buy their shitty products, and store after store is refusing to sell Trump brands. They are dropping them because they don’t sell, but they should anyway, because its a huge conflict of interest for the president and his family to be running private business while in office.
We defeated previous plans to remove net neutrality. But Trump is trying it again. The backlash must be huge! The internet is vital to the resistance, if its controlled by corporate assholes we will lose a vital tool to fight back.
The resistance works world wide, left wingers in Israel might be able to score a huge victory against their right wing leader.
Tools of change:
Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit? Want to do something about it?
Calling your government representative:
You can also use 5Calls.org if you are having a hard time figuring out what to say.
Tell them in no uncertain terms that you want them to fight to stop Trump from doing these things. Tell them you will be watching them closely on how they vote, and will hold them accountable during the next election if they cave to Trump. You can also call other states congress people and threaten to donate to their opponent if they don’t do what you want.
Call the “White House”:
Use this website to call one of Trump’s many properties he has not put into a blind trust yet, and let them know how you feel (be polite, they are workers just like us, but be firm).
Go to a town hall and talk to your congress person in person:
Monitor your congressperson:
Keep track of how your senator is voting on cabinet picks here, so you can call them up and give them hell if they vote for any of these worthless fuckers.
