New Year New Fight!
Time to start voting folks out of office, start local and work your way up. And I am not just talking about republicans here (although EVERY SINGLE one of them needs to go).
This sort of shit happens when you don’t have a strong enough team fighting for you. So make sure the folks on our team are doing enough to fight for us as well.
If that means replacing 100% of the republicans and 50-85% of the democrats, I am ok with that. SO long as the folks we we replace them with are actually fighting for actual people, and not just paid lackeys of the super rich.
There is probably an election for something super local happening in your area this year, there are the mid terms this year, there will more than likely be elections you can support in other states for progressive candidates you could support with small donations, you can be harassing your senators to do a better job, hell you could even be running for something.
I have been doing most of these things, and I have to tell you not only does it make you feel good, it helps take away that sucking empty feeling of hopelessness which seems to be everywhere these days.
Think like a Utopian.
Allowing employers a “moral exemption” from offering birth control coverage is immoral. The issue here should not be an employer’s religious or moral beliefs but the needs, beliefs, health and safety of the employee. Your employers religion shouldn’t dictate your healthcare options.
In Antarctica, a fleet of seven drones will embark on a year-long mission under the ice. If they survive, the data they collect could drastically improve predictions of future ice melting and sea level rises.
Today, Andrew Cuomo refused to call special elections, leaving two Democratic State Senate Districts without representation.
He prefers Republicans controlling the budget to Democrats.

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