Casual Friday – Resist in your pajamas!

Cup of coffee ready?

1. Rinse and Repeat.

If you missed any of the actions from yesterday, including calls on DACA and another wildly inappropriate nominee and some quick consumer actions on Motel 6 (seriously!) and a Breitbart advertiser, do them today. It takes 5 minutes or less, depending on what you want to say to Tom Bodett.

2. Did they really think we were going to let 3 corporate shills walk off with the Internet?

Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] and I know that Senator [___] is a supporter of net neutrality. I want her to to sign on to the “Congressional Resolution of Disapproval” to force this issue to a vote.

And Julia Brownley. Really?

Speaking of supporters... Back in the House, Salud Carbajal has cosponsored a “Congressional Resolution of Disapproval” to overrule the FCC net neutrality but Julia Brownley hasn’t picked a side. Huh? We need to call her. Maybe she forgot in the holiday rush…

Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want Representative [___] to sign on to the “Congressional Resolution of Disapproval” to overrule the FCC net neutrality vote.

Rep. Julia Brownley: (CA-26): DC (202) 225-5811, Oxnard (805) 379-1779, T.O. (805) 379-1779

Tell industry shill and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt that we oppose repealing regulations that keep new trucks outfitted with pollution-spewing old engines off the road Let’s use this form to tell EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt that we oppose the revival of the “glider vehicle loophole.”

Use this form here. (This takes less than 5 minutes…)

The Park Service has a public announcement for us…

Eight Republican representatives have gotten together and created a new bill called the “Kill New Parks Act”... no, wait a minute..it’s called the “National Monument Creation and Protection Act”. Figures. It would prohibit the president from creating new national monuments larger than 85,000 acres and adds a bizarre requirement that ALL state and county officials approve their creation. Without unanimous approval, new monuments would be limited to 640 acres if within 50 miles of another monument and 5000 if not.

Really?

Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want Representative [___] to vote against House Resolution 3990.

Rep. Julia Brownley: (CA-26): DC (202) 225-5811, Oxnard (805) 379-1779, T.O. (805) 379-1779

Stop Trump & Co.’s offshore drilling free-for-all.

Despite bipartisan agreement that offshore drilling endangers our coastal communities and harms their economies, Trump’s administration announced they were throwing out protection acts and allowing offshore drilling in nearly all coastal areas off the continental US, opening areas in the Atlantic, Pacific, and Arctic Oceans along with the Gulf of Mexico. Apparently, our government is now an arm of BP and other oil and gas companies.

Minimal Script for Representatives: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want Representative [___] to co-sign and vote for HR 2272 – COAST Anti-Drilling Act.

Minimal Script for Senators: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want Senator [___] to co-sign and vote for S. 999 – COAST Anti-Drilling Act.

Minimal Script for Senator Feinstein: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want to thank Senator Feinstein for being an original co-signer of S. 999 – COAST Anti-Drilling Act.

More script if you want it: This act permanently prohibits offshore drilling in fragile coast regions on the Continental Shelf areas in the Atlantic Ocean and Straits of Florida and prevent a repeat of the oil spills that cause huge economic and environmental damage.
