    Another hint for faxes to Senators and Congressmen

    https://resistbot.io/

    This will send faxes, calls, or letters to your various elected officials. After you do it a few times the suite of features opens up (signature etc). You do it all from text message and it’s SUPER easy.

    Kay lives in a rural area of Ohio. Here’s her tip while calling about Trumpcare:

    I take a little different approach. I name-drop the local hospital and mention it is the single largest employer in the county- which it is. It’s fudged a bit- they’re the largest but they have lots of 30 hour people, but still. True.

    They’re paranoid about rural hospitals – all of them. I feel it’s a vulnerability for the GOP that screams to be exploited 🙂

      If you have a big provider or best yet, a SINGLE provider, mention that. A lot of people work there. It would be a real body blow to a lot of these places if people had to travel 30, 40, 50 miles for health care, especially elderly people.

    PBO (paraphrase): “Organizing and mobilizing movements starts with a story. Can’t move a lot of people unless you listen to the people next to you and people who are not like you. How did we come to be the way we are and do the things we do? Listening and forging bonds that creates the glue that creates movements.”

    What Weiner did was bad. 2yrs? O.J. Simpson spent 8yrs in Jail for trying to get his Memorabilia back? Justice in US is NOT Equal, Niether applicable nor proportioned to fit the crimes.
    Yet, the KKK…. 23yo who gunned down 2 Black men in LA, was released, he posted bail? Excuse me?
    Many Cops are acquitted after gunning down POC in USA? Justice for a Few?

      Anthony Weiner is a sexual predator. I have ZERO sympathy for him. He deserves to have the book thrown at him.

        I agree that Weiner has serious issues. A sexual predator. His behavior was dastardly. It was chronic & he didn’t once consider his son sleeping next to him. He should get what’s coming to him. My issue, inartfully expressed……Crimes in USA should always fit the punishment……as proportionately as humanly possible.

    Hello all.

    I just want to say that I am so disappointed with the Democrats in Congress. The comment made at the UN about the possible annihalation of North Korea is so egregious that it may have put a target on every American’s back travelling abroad especially.

    Had a Democratic Pres said this, the Repubs would have been on TV etc assailing said Pres to the point of impeachment. What has been said by the few Democarts has been in muted terms, with little outrage and no strategy.

    They just don’t seem equipped to fight against the other side effectively enough. They have not even learned a smidgen from PBO.

    One can only hope they find some way to push back against and prevent the GOP’s hideous ACA Repeal Bill from passing . Hoping but concerned.

    Really seems to hinge on the people.

      September 20, 2017 at 11:06 pm

      It’s my take that the fools haven’t passed anything yet (and it had better stay that way), about which to file a lawsuit. In the interim, it’s all inside-Congress stuff. Stuff that is worrying most of the country, at least the people who are paying attention. So, in the meantime, the way to fight is to contact our House reps or Senators. (Luckily, my two Senators are Democrats!)

    LOCK THEM UP!! KOCH, Graham, Cassidy and colleagues and their deathly mission.
    “Before the Affordable Care Act passed nearly 1,000 North Carolinians died each year between 2005and 2010 due to lack of health insurance.” And over a thousand deaths a year (after 2014) due to NC GOP denying Medicaid Expansion.

    So KOCH brothers told GOP in June no more cash until they repeal the ACA. Excerpts from David KOCH’s Libertarian Party platform:
    “We favor the abolition of Medicare and Medicaid programs.”
    “We oppose any compulsory insurance or tax-supported plan to provide health services…”
    “We also favor the deregulation of the medical insurance industry.”
    “We support the abolition of the Environmental Protection Agency.”
    “We advocate the abolition of the Food and Drug Administration.”
    “We support an end to all subsidies for child-bearing built into our present laws, including all welfare plans and the provision of tax-supported services for children.”
    “We oppose all government welfare, relief projects, and ‘aid to the poor’ programs.
    “We call for the repeal of the Occupational Safety and Health Act.”
    “We call for the abolition of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.”
    “We specifically oppose laws requiring an individual to buy or use so-called “self-protection” equipment such as safety belts, air bags, or crash helmets.”
    Time to expose McConnell/GOP Managers Charles and David KOCH to real scrutiny. Bring KOCH out of hiding and into the light.
