This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 88

Trump Watch:

Massive marches across the country demanding to see Donald Trumps taxes…what does he say.  That the protesters were being paid.  It’s clear at this point that Trump’s taxes contain evidence of crimes, corruption, and ties to Russia.  Someone at the IRS leak that shit, its your duty as a good patriot.

Trump is already using his 2020 reelection bid to line his own pockets

Trump Has Already Spent $500,000 In Re-election Funds On His Own Businesses

In the face of cuts for the needy, Trump’s $3M trips are appalling.  We can’t have meals on wheels, but we can inflate the military budget by billions and Trump can spend hundreds of millions on enriching himself while golfing.  Long live the king I guess.

There is no such thing as clean coal, fracking is a disaster, and oil is the same old thing we have been fighting wars over for years.  All three spell doom for the future of humanity on this planet, but there is good news, we don’t need any fossil fuels.   Solar and wind are so cheap that you should really be out there installing it on your home right now.

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)

Is your mayor up for election?  Find out, get involved!
