More Than 90 Scientists Release Report That Arctic Is ‘Unraveling’

Trumpcare is horrible, and it affects everyone, even those with healthcare through employers. Today might be the day of reckoning, where the House either kills the bill or gets enough votes to head to Senate. Call your Reps and tell them NO, WE DON’T WANT THIS.

Progressive Attorney Unseats Business-Friendly Mississippi Mayor

Colbert finally (and unapologetically) responds to #FireColbert backlash: ‘I would do it again’  Trump supporters of all people will know that saying controversial things will only help the ratings.

But watching Hillary Clinton trying to blame the FBI and wikileaks for her loss is hilarious.  You were running against Donald Trump, you should have had such a lead that any amount of wikileaks and FBI nonsense wouldn’t have mattered.  Instead you were such a weak candidate that only a 1 or 2% shift cost you the election.

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.

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.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 75

Trump Watch:

So trump has signed the roll back to internet privacy bill, meaning that you should all go out and google “what is a VPN” right now.  We live in an era of double speak, and purchased politicians.  The republicans (and it was all republicans for once) that voted for this bill, and the republican president that signed it don’t give a fuck about you, your interests, or what you actually want.  They care only about big money, and what it tells them to do.

The solution to this is obvious, kick the bums out, kick the money out, and pass laws that make sure it can’t come back.  We did this in the 1890s in America, we can do it again.

Old fatty Trump was too scared he would wiff so he didn’t throw out the first pitch, a tradition that goes back to Taft.  Ha ha ha ha.  Is this the president you Trump supporters voted for?  A coward and a weakling?

——————

Mercedes-Benz pulling ads from ‘The O’Reilly Factor’  Don’t get confused for a second, big companies have no morality, they only care about their image in how it affects sales, but at least an angry old man who likes to abuse women is finally starting to be something that isn’t profitable anymore.

Posted by U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders on Monday, April 3, 2017

Bernie Sanders Just Introduced His Free College Tuition Plan!  Now is the time to counter punch, even if these bills don’t pass they put republicans on the record as fighting against the american people, making it easier to defeat them in the next election.

No to Trumpcare, No to Obamacare: Universal Healthcare or Bust

Democrats’ Medicare-for-all litmus test: “If every major country on earth guarantees health care to all people and costs a fraction per capita of what we spend,” Sanders said, “don’t tell me that in the United States of America, we cannot do that.”
