the-next-four-years

The thing that we didn’t really plan on — because we weren’t aware that we were going to switch Supergirl from CBS to CW and it was really going to be part of it — that was the one show that didn’t have built-in shut-down days, so all the other ones did. Melissa [Benoist] ended up being heavily in Flash and then in Arrow, so Supergirl was the one we needed to shut down the most and it was the one that we didn’t have any opportunity to. Now that we’ve gotten the early pickup and we’ve started designing the seasons, we’re building in those dark days, and actually more dark days on Supergirl than the other shows, to make it a little easier

when I walked into my voting place they immediately told me I’d have to try again next election because I wasn’t registered yet, without even speaking a word to me about my age or checking first. I look young so they weren’t even going to help me or check if I was registered

young people: do not let anyone bully you at the polls!! if someone tells you you aren’t registered and you think you are, double check online before deciding to go home.

their expressions immediately changed when I said (with notable irritation, because how dare they try to belittle me) I’ve been registered to vote for five years now and their attitudes are the only issue I’ve ever had to deal with

House Republicans scrap plan to gut ethics office after emergency meeting

HEY GUYS LOOK AT THIS. 

There was public uproar about this move. There were phone calls, e-mails, tweets. There was a lot of attention. And guess what? It worked.

We’re not powerless, we just got used to not having to do anything. Get ready to do this a lot more for the next two to four years, because just because we got them to back off of this one doesn’t mean they’re going to suddenly stop trying to get things past us. They’re just going to try harder to be sneaky.

But we do make a difference. 

Also, in 2018? Which is NEXT YEAR?

I want you to vote these motherfuckers out of office. Get a list going. Let your representatives know when you call them that you are keeping a list of who votes how, and that you’ll be voting accordingly. Let them know that if they can’t do their job, they’re gonna be fired.

Power to the people.

Many of us come here to achieve things that may not be available to us in our home countries. We come to succeed and thrive in our new opportunities. As an immigrant coming to the US to succeed, I am sad about the policies Trump is proposing. Although the next four years will be hard, I’m sure all of us will strive and get through it.

We are immigrants, we have faced hardships adjusting to this country. I’m sure most of us have overcome it, but we must be prepared to face them again when even the president himself is against us. We must show him that we come for a better future!

The First 100 Days Resistance Agenda

Trump’s First 100 Day agenda includes repealing environmental regulations, Obamacare, and the Dodd-Frank Act, giving the rich and big corporations a huge tax cut, and putting in place a cabinet that doesn’t believe in the Voting Rights Act or public schools or Medicare or the Fair Housing Act. 

Our 100 days of resistance begins a sustained and powerful opposition. Here’s what you can do (it will take about an hour of your time each day):

1. Get your senators and representatives to pledge to oppose Trump’s agenda. Reject his nominees, prolong the process of approving them, draw out hearings on legislation. Call your senator and your representative and don’t stop calling.

2. March and demonstrate. The Women’s March on Washington will be the day after the Inauguration. There should be “sister” marches around the country. And then monthly marches against hate. Keep the momentum alive and keep the message going.

3. Make your city and state sanctuaries that won’t cooperate with federal immigration authorities in deporting undocumented immigrants, especially people who have been here since they were very young.

4. Boycott all Trump products, real estate, hotels, resorts, everything. And then boycott all stores (like Nordstrom) that carry merchandise from Trump family brands.

5. Write letters to the editor of your newspaper and op-eds, with a steady flow of arguments about the fallacies and dangers of Trump’s First 100 Day policies and initiatives.

6. Contribute to social media with up-to-date daily bulletins on what Trump is up to, and actions in your region in opposition.

7. Contribute to the most effective opposition groups. The American Civil Liberties Union, Common Cause, the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Economic Policy Institute, Inequality Media, MoveOn, and others.  

8. Make the resistance visible with bumper stickers, lapel pins, wrist bands.

9. Push progressive causes at your state and local level – environmental reform, progressive taxes, a higher minimum wage, ending gerrymandering, stopping mass incarceration. Make your state a model of what the federal government should do.

10. Start a move in your state to abolish the electoral college by committing your state’s electors to vote for the presidential candidate who wins the popular vote.

11. Reach out to independents and even Trump supporters who agree with this agenda, and get them involved.

12. Your idea goes here. Meet with family and friends this weekend, and decide what you’ll contribute.  

The First 100 Days Resistance Agenda. An hour a day. Send a powerful message. We aren’t going away.

This is from the New York Times article, “The Perfect Weapon: How Russian Cyberpower Invaded the U.S.

You hear Russians breaking into both DNC and RNC computers and you think “wow, international espionage! these must be some high-level hacking, probably using exploits that aren’t known yet, and which are very hard to defend against” but then you find out, NOPE.  NOPE, NO WAY. Instead you discover:

  • they broke in with rinky-dink grade-school baby’s-first-hack PHISHING EMAILS, the kind that our grandparents who call it “the emails” might’ve fallen for
  • these political parties have all the cybersecurity of a church bake sale
  • the outcome of the election, the state of the world today, and where we go over the next four years may have been greatly influenced by, swear to God, a TWO-LETTER TYPO
