Thur 5/31: Post Card Party today and some at-home suggestions to write with your friends and kids later!

Postcard Party for California Congressional District 25, TODAY, May 31st!

We will be joining a National effort to get out the vote in California Congressional District 25! Be there for a final Get-Out-The-Vote push!

When: Thursday, May 31st at 10am– 2pm
Where: Unitarian Universalist Church, 5654 Ralston St, Ventura
Fun! Coffee, tea, snacks and light lunch will be provided (we must keep up our energy!)

CD25 is Steve Knight’s district which includes part of Ventura County, Santa Clarita, Lancaster, and Palmdale. We Venturans can’t vote Knight out, but we can help our neighbors rid themselves of him – and help ourselves by removing one of the 24 Trump minions needed to turn the House blue!

We are not endorsing or dissing a candidate, just advocating power to the polls.

Our appeal will be directly to the voters in CA25 – NOT mass political mailings, because all of our cards will be handwritten. Each will be a message from one voter to another. We are simply asking Americans to do that most American thing — VOTE!

Here are some tidbits from about Steve Knight to inspire us:

Let us count the ways Steve Knight has betrayed us:

He votes with Trump 98% of the time.
He voted against our healthcare.
The National Rifle Association gives him an A rating.
He voted for the #TrumpTaxScam.
He’s rabidly anti-choice.
He opposed raises to minimum wage for workers.
And his environmental record is dismal.

And we’d bet our shirts that when it’s time to vote for the DREAMers or the Stupid Border Wall, he’s going to rubber stamp Trump too.

Indivisible Ventura has joined forces with Swing SoCal Left, a powerful coalition of organizations determined to Flip the 25th.

See more ways you can work to flip the 25th district of Congress.

Some great post card suggestions to do a home! Everybody loves a thank-you note!

Still can’t figure out why FOX hasn’t fired this guy…

On Tuesday, Fox News anchor Shep Smith used two minutes of time to lay waste to the “Spygate” garbage. Thank Mr. Smith for persevering in valuing truth .

The Jets stand behind their players!

Jets chair Christopher Johnson says his players shouldn’t have to worry about the NFL’s new protest fines: “I never want to put restrictions on the speech of our players. Do I prefer that they stand? Of course. But I understand if they felt the need to protest…There will be no club fines or suspensions or any sort of repercussions. If the team gets fined, that’s just something I’ll have to bear.” Read more here and let him know this is the right answer.

Thank GOP members when they do the right thing.

On Tuesday, Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) as a guest on Fox News said of misnamed “Spygate”, “I am even more convinced that the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got…” Thank Congressman Gowdy for valuing truth.

Thank Lowe’s for voluntarily removing a toxic substance.

From Alt National Park Service:  Thank you, Lowe’s Home Improvement! After protests by environmental activists, home improvement retailer Lowe’s will soon be ridding all of its stores of products carrying a toxic chemical known to cause cancer, no matter what our foot-dragging EPA leader says. The company announced Tuesday it will soon phase out all products, including paints and paint thinners, that contain the toxic chemical methylene chloride. The change will occur throughout its global market by the end of the year.

Hat’s off if you can make this into a positive “thank you” to Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has said that it bothers her to be called a liar. Let’s take a moment to let her know that it bothers us to be lied to and we thank her for still caring about what people think of her.
