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.

Also if you need help with tags, PM [personal profile] redbird who is our tag guru. Both [personal profile] tanaqui and I are very grateful for the help.

I feel like a wimp checking 'sent a letter/postcard/fax/email' but actually this week they went to my senators, my representative, my state representative, my state senator, and my state's governor. (And hey, my governor did what I asked. So soon after that I'm sure it was already in the works, but hey, it never hurts to have them hear what you want even if they're already in progress!)

I left voice mail messages - and now I've found out that both Mr Wicker and Mr Cochran were given money or had money contributed to their campaigns by folks who opposed the US staying with the Paris Accords.

Oh now, Senators, why'd you have to go and do a thing like that. We were starting to get along again. Now you've gone and done it. More index cards into your mailboxes. And more phone calls.

On some scales, it has been for a long time: consider Love Canal. But there's a difference between the small-scale looking away of a Love Canal, or the pattern of placing diesel bus depots in poor neighborhoods, and the large-scale denialism we're seeing about climate change.

Does anyone know if there's a current open petition (and do not say he hasn't long deserved it. He said the n-word, that's beyond the pale, end of story. Sorry, I've gotten a lot of this shit this week from so-called liberals. Not a single one has been POC, funny story!)
