I'm loving the heck out of this. It reminds you that it's time to resist again every few days, and if you've been keeping track you'll already have an idea of what you want to say this time.

Also, one of the things I was less than satisfied about -- the inability to select House, Senate, or Both -- is apparently fixed as an add-on after you've used it a few times. That's really going to help with the flexibility of what I can text about.

If texting is something you're comfortable with, I can't recommend this utility highly enough.

Sorry this is late going up again. I'm D-14 from major life event so I'm a little out of it. If I don't respond to comments, that's why, not that I'm not reading them.


Reminder that we have a suggestion post if there’s a topic that you’d like to see discussed but would like to ask the mods to look into. This can be anything from general information, or a how-to-do-a-thing, or something you may want to discuss as a community. Folks are welcome to post directly to the comm as always, but if you’re not comfortable/don’t have spoons, we can help too.

Well, unless President Trump refuses to sign the bill, the regulation keeping our ISPs from selling our browsing history is going down.

Minnesota is moving to handle it on a local scale; maybe those of us in other states should be reaching out to our state government to add similar local legislation?
