This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 100

Trump Watch:

We made it to 100 days…sheesh remember 10 years ago when we were at day 1.  Trump’s administration is aging like a dog.  I have to say I am disappointed by not surprised.  Ever since I was born presidents have been getting steadily shittier.  Reagan was atrocious, Clinton and both Bush’s were hardly different, Obama was the best republican president we have had since Nixon, and now Trump.  Each has done their part to destroy and dismantle America.  They did it for money, and they did it for something as petty as money.  There is no grand conspiracy, there is no volcano with an evil genius.  As much as Exxon, or the Koch brothers would like to think they are in control, the sad fact is, this is what you get when you let money rule instead of the people.

The last time we had allowed government to stagnate into such a mess, the last time we had fucked over multiple generations was the late 1800’s.  Robber barons ruled the nation, there was a great depression, and in general the rich had it great, the poor not so much.  The solution back then was FDR and two world wars….lets hope we can figure out how to fix it this time without murdering an entire generation of young men.

Trump is a symptom of the problem, not the cause of them.  Unless we fundamentally rework government we will just get another Trump.  This is why you need to vote in your local elections, why every race from Dog Catcher, to Senator must be a big deal.  We need a soup to nuts reboot of the process that governs us.

I would humbly suggest you start with the Left.  The democrats are hardly the opposition anymore, opting instead to be republicans that are ok with abortion and gay people.  Smart, inventive progressives who actually care about the environment, pay equity, a strong living wage, unions, health care for all, free college, and an end to money in politics are the kinds of people we need to start electing.

Once the left has been returned to the opposition you will quickly see what it looks like to have two parties who actually fight each other again, instead of one large party with two different wings.

Good luck to us all if we can not.  Things like global warming, and income inequality are not going to wait for us to get our shit together, they are ticking time bombs and will go off if we don’t do something, and do something fast.

On this 100 day milestone reflect on that, renew your efforts, remember who and what you love, and FIGHT!

President Trump accused of ‘covering up’ for disgraced Michael Flynn.  Drip drip drip, the Russian story is going to be Trump’s Watergate.

Newly Unclassified Documents: 1) Pentagon warned Michael Flynn not to take foreign payments without permission. 2) He didn’t seek permission, took payments from Kremlin-backed propaganda outlet Russia Today, then lied about it. 3) The White House is now stonewalling.

Trump’s tax plan could cost an estimated $5.5 trillion.  Which is why it MUST NOT PASS.  This would bankrupt america, and make the rich so rich that they would become royalty.

If you’re wondering how this absurd sham of a “tax plan” happened, here’s the answer: Trump’s Treasury Department hasn’t filled any tax policy jobs. Pretend President wants to do pretend work, and we get shitty work product as the result.

Dynamic scoring is the Republicans’ latest Big Lie. They’re going to invent a phony economic model so that they can claim that their $6 trillion tax cut doesn’t explode the deficit. That’s like asking the public to accept a Powerball ticket as payment for a Ferrari.

House delays Obamacare vote, denying Trump 100-day win.  Frankly I am not surprised, it was a horrible bill to start with, it failed twice to get a vote before, they went back to the drawing board made it EVEN WORSE, and then tried to serve us a shit sandwich for a third time.  These fucking morons, they had 8 years to plan this, and what do they do when the time comes, roll out this nonsense.  It’s clear to me that anyone bought and paid for by big money interests doesn’t actually know how to govern, and is paid because they are so stupid and will do anything the big money tells them to.

Tools of change:

Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit?  Want to do something about it?

Calling your government representative:

Call your Senator
Call your House Rep (Or use this spreadsheet)
Call your Governor
Call your Attorney General
Or try this website
Fax Congress here (free!)

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).

Do a little Slacktivism:

Send Some Text Messages for progressive causes (I know it says textforbernie, but its for a range of progressive candidates)  Or you can have your texts turned into faxes by the ResistBot

Go to a town hall and talk to your congress person in person:

Check when the next town hall is here

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.

See how your elected representatives are voting for or against Trump.

Also be sure to keep track if you live in a district with an upcoming flip-able seat (flip to the left that is)
