FRIDAY LIST

Well, I floated the idea of a Friday list of things we have done, but I had not really figured out how to organize it.  Let me try this:  Each time any of you [NOT JUST THE USUAL SUSPECTS] does something, anything, to contribute to the struggle, post a brief comment.  I will round them all up and post them in a list each Friday.

Here is my list since last Friday, to start:

Went to the Washington March
Went to a Raleigh, NC demonstration at Senator Tillis' office
Called the offices of both of my senators.
Called the offices of the NC Legislature House and Senate leaders [both Republicans]
Signed a gazillion on-line petitions
Gave money to the ACLU
Gave money to a lefty organization
Blogged about the crisis almost every day


DML said...
Went to Women's March
Signed online petition on Trump's taxes
Called my Senator
Recruited three friends to attend an Our Revolution meeting for next week
Recruited my Red State Liberal father-in-law to do many of these things

Not much this week, but I did write and publish this http://www.nutmeggerdaily.com/?p=700 trying to articulate exactly why it's so scary.

Called my US-rep (Republican Rodney Davis of IL-13) to ask when he would be holding a town hall. Apparently a lot of other people in the district had a similar idea, because later than day he announced that he would hold a "virtual town hall". (In his previous two terms he's never held a town hall of any kind, virtual or real.)

Called my US-rep this morning to tell him that I hoped he would push back against Trump claiming that there was vote fraud. I phrased it as "Trump impugning the honesty of the voters of the IL-13th, and my local County Clerk" (our County Clerk is also Republican).

Called my (Democratic) senators to tell them they are doing great jobs and that I'll fully support them if they decide to vote against confirming Sessions, Pruitt, Tillerson, and especially DeVos.



Tom Cathcart said...

Nothing very heroic. Gave a bit of $ to Our Revolution. Called Dianne Feinstein to ask her to demand a second hearing for Sessions (ACLU)

1. I participated in the Seattle Womxm's march.

2. I did a little informal fund-raising for a Democratic legislative district organization south of Seattle--a swing district turning blue. The Republican state Senator in that district said publicly that the Womxn's march was unAmerican and unChristian. That turned into a good fundraising opportunity.

3. When I caught wind that an anti Planned Parenthood group was planning a demonstration in a suburb south of Seattle on February 11, I spread the word. There is now an official pro Planned Parenthood demonstration in the works. Thankfully someone else is organizing it so I don't have to

1. Went to the Disrupt J20 march.

2. Went to the Women's March on Washington.

3. Emailed siggerudk@gao.gov, minellit@gao.gov, and congrel@gao.gov at the Government Accountability Office in support of Senator Warren's request to audit Trump's finances for conflicts of interest.

4. Made all of the phone calls listed at https://5calls.org/ - left a few messages, got a few human beings.

5. Called my mayor and city councilmembers to thank them for their support of DC's sanctuary city status.
