Voting is our power. Don’t let it be taken away with a keystroke.

 Pass the SAVE Act (S. 2035)

The more we learn about voting hacks and other problems, the notion of going back to paper ballots is gaining attention.  Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NM) has introduced the SAVE Act (S. 2035) but his bill is stuck in the Rules and Administration Committee.  Let’s ask our own senators to sign on as co-sponsors.

Minimal Script:  I’m calling from zip code […] to urge Senator [__] to co-sponsor and vote YES on the SAVE Act. We need to protect voting systems in the US against intrusion, theft, manipulation, and deletion of voter registration data and ballots, and prevent cyberattacks from malicious computer hacker

DEADLINE TODAY! Write. It takes less than 5 minutes to save the Tule Elk.

Take a moment to write a comment supporting the continued existence of the tule elk, a subspecies of elk that was decimated nearly to extinction.  (Californians need to call too. Script below.)

This is what we’re in danger of losing (This video is from 2009)…

A small protected population survives in California, and now livestock interests are pressing the National Park Service to kill them or severely restrict their movements (which has previously led to starvation) so that the relatively small amount of public land allotted to this native species can instead be used to graze their cattle. Speak up so that they can survive and remain free-roaming.

Write! It’s easy! Use this link to make your public comment TODAY NOV. 15TH.

Show some love, California! Stand Indivisible. #StandwithFrederica.

Quick recap for those who missed this whole stupid excuse to beat on a successful black woman…
Rep. Frederica Wilson contradicted Trump’s story when he attacked Myeshia Johnson’s account of his “condolence” call regarding the death of her husband La David. Now Trump’s revenge against Wilson has spiraled out of control. WH Chief of Staff John Kelly has jettisoned his honor and dignity  to defame the legislator, lying about an incident in which contrary video evidence exists.

Now to Trevor Noah for the rest of the story…

Meanwhile, a storm of hate has hit Wilson’s office.

(from Chop Wood, Carry Water)

“I heard and read about the awful, racist phone calls coming in to Rep Frederica Wilson and picked up the phone to give her my support today. The guy who answered the phone sounded really overwhelmed. He said it’s mostly hate mail and phone calls from all over the country but a few people have called in support.

If you have a minute, pick up the phone and let them know it’s not all racists and Trump supporters out there. Sounds like Wilson’s staff needs a hug.”

NO! NO! NO! Don’t let Trump Push the Nuclear Button without Congressional Permission!

Representatives

Minimal Script: I am calling from [zip code] to ask Rep. [___] to co-sponsor H.R. 669 – “Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act of 2017”. 

More script if you want it: Trump should not be allowed to launch a nuclear first strike without a declaration of war by Congress. I believe that this bill preserves Constitutional checks and balances on Executive powers.

Rep. Salud Carbajal has already signed. Thank him by email

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

Senator, how many reasons do you need to oppose the Senate Budget Resolution?  

Script: I’m calling from [zip code] to ask Sen. [___] to oppose the fiscally irresponsible 2018 Senate Budget Resolution, which would allow Republicans to give $1.5 trillion in tax cuts to corporations and top earners while slashing Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, public education and opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska to oil drilling.

Senator Feinstein: DC (202) 224-3841, LA (310) 914-7300, SF (415) 393-0707, SD (619) 231-9712, Fresno (559) 485-7430

33,636 points of heartbreak…one year of gun deaths in America and what you can do.

It’s hard to even conceive of what 33,636 deaths looks like… 

These blocks of guns, each little gun symbol representing a death, is for all us visual learners out there. This amazing depiction of what 33,636 gun deaths a year really looks like is brought to us thanks to Matt Maughey. (Scroll through it in one solid block here )

But change is happening.

full block

The public is truly done with “thoughts and prayers” as our only defense against urban warfare.

What happened in Vegas put the lie to NRA claims that good-people-with-guns in a crowd could always stop a shooting.

The NRA is grudgingly prepared to sacrifice bump stocks as truly the least they can do.

full block

We are at a tipping point…

Demand more. Make these 3+ calls.
