Wednesday, March 1
—Trump gave a speech last night. Dummies thought he sounded “presidential.” He was, and is, a racist clown. Martin Heinrich thinks that, so I signed his petition to oppose Trump’s bullshit agenda.
—Wrote to Senator Susan Collins, basically calling her out for assuring us that Jeff Sessions—despite a long and documented history of racism and opposing voting rights—would, you know, not be racist and stand up for voting rights. Oh, it was also revealed tonight that Sessions lied to Congress about the fact that he—wait for it—was in contact with the Russians on Trump’s behalf.
—Trump and his greedheads want to scuttle net neutrality. CREDO action petition.
—Jeff Sessions is going down! This petition would like to speed that shit up.

—And another one.
—iHeartRadio is planning to honor right-wing racist talk show host Michael Berry. Petition.

—Sherrod Brown would like American workers to be treated better, so here’s a signature.

—Tammy Baldwin agrees. And she would know.

—NARAL opposes SCOTUS pick Neil Gorsuch. Possibly because Trump thinks he’s neat. More likely because he’s like a more evil Scalia, apparently.

—Patty Murray is also against the Republican’s poor-person-murdering healthcare proposal.
Friday, March 10
—Scott Pruitt, the grotesque joke who is Trump’s head of the EPA, states that carbon dioxide is not a factor in global warming. So, this petition seeks to educate him that it is. And that he is a grinning corporate shill.
—Form letter to my reps urging them to fight the GOP’s bullshit health care bill.

—That being said, I liked this Ivanka fake commercial, which I wrote about also.

—Trump and his loot-minded cronies want to destroy the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Shocker.
—They also want to destroy the EPA.

—NRDC petition against the fact that Republicans loooove to gerrymander voting districts along racial lines because they know their shit ideas can’t keep them in power any other way.

—Email to Collins and Angus King urging them to oppose the hideous Trump budget. They want to cut ficking Meals on Wheels. Think about that.

Sunday, March 19
—Someone put together this incredibly helpful, one-click spreadsheet that allows you to message GOP reps with exactly how many of their constituents (or “voters” if that’s all they recognize) will lose coverage under the grotesquely greedy and cruel Trumpcare. Seriously, this person deserves a medal of some sort.

—Trump (aka Shithad) continues to adopt a “loot this motherfucker before I get impeached” approach to regulation, tapping one of his Wall Street cronies to oversee Wall Street.

—So much racist Twitter. It’s like they’re getting nervous and desperate or something.
Thursday, March 23
—Called Bruce Poliquin again, bright and early. Staff says he still hasn’t made up his mind. Which no doubt means he’s studying very carefully and wrestling with his soul and not that he’s, as is his wont, ducking all controversy like a little babyman until he can scuffy out and hope his unpopular vote will get lost in the overall din. It won’t.
—Tom Udall’s petition against the GOP deathmurder plan.

—Spent all morning tweeting at GOP hacks on the fence, including Maine’s Bruce Poliquin, who never, ever declared a position. That’s his thing. He is a spineless nothing of a congressman.

—Hey, let’s boycott companies that do business with Scumbag, Incorporated.
Sunday, March 26
—Ivanka Trump posted a pic of herself at the zoo, in front of an elephant. So I sent her this petition against her dad gutting the Endangered Species Act.
