Watch this interview with Jon Ossoff at Flippable and provide support to this upcoming election. He is running for the open seat in Georgia from Tom Price’s move to head up and demolish HHS. This is an important election that Republicans are throwing lots of money at.

With Flynn’s offer to share information for immunity, the questions about Russian influence only deepen.  Contact your senators and demand they postpone any decisions about Gorsuch until we get some answers. Daily Kos has a campaign action about this.

Trump is asking for billions of dollars from Congress to fund his anti-immigrant agenda. On March 16, the Trump administration requested an extra $3 billion from Congress to begin funding his executive orders through September 30, 2017. This spending bill requires 60 votes to pass – and we can make sure the ‘yes’ tally never gets that high. Add your name now to tell the Senate to say NO to funding Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda.

Contact your senator to ensure they stand united in opposition to Neil Gorsuch.

Contact your representative and ask them to support House Resolution 186 (H.Res 186) a “Resolution of Inquiry” to direct Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin to provide to the House of Representatives ten years of President Trump’s tax returns along with other information on his financial dealings.

Now is the time to send some appreciation to Democrats for standing in opposition to the repeal of the ACA and the nomination of Neil Gorsuch.  I’ve been using my Resistbot and unlocking new functionality.  I encourage you to try it!



Very prescient – the Washington Post reminded folks about the recurring character, Ronald Grump on Sesame Street.  This is the perfect video to watch today!. It ended so much like today’s events.

Participate in your representative’s Town Hall meetings.  You can find out when / where at Town Hall Project


While protests, petitions and phone calls are having an impact, I think it’s also important to read and learn how to be effective.  A couple of articles I read recently have given me food for thought.

This article, Washington’s Coup Fever Heats Up caused me to re-think my wish for a quick overthrow.  As David Talbot writes, “I agree that saving America means bringing down Trump. But it’s a revived democracy that must be his downfall — a newly invigorated media, judicial system and citizenry — not the dark maneuvers of spies and generals.”

Van Jones tweeted a link to this article: How to Culture Jam a Populist in Four Easy Steps which I though was very insightful as to the work we need to do to connect with people across America.
