Thank You Thursday #14

Goodness!  It’s been quite a week!  I can hardly keep up with all the craziness…  AND, I’ve been on vacation and also just super busy with life.  So, I neglected to do last week’s Thank You Thursday.  Oh well. Anyhow…  Remember when we wrote postcards to Deputy Attorney General Mr. Rod Rosenstein asking him to … More Thank You Thursday #14

Today’s Thank You goes to a professional football player who appears to be a decent fellow. The New England Patriots won the Super Bowl this year.  As is tradition, they were invited to the White House to meet the president.  Six of them declined the invitation.  Mr. Alan Branch is one of only a few who publicly … More Thank You Thursday #12

Thank You Thursday #11… a little bit late

Thank tireless lawyers! This week, a federal judge ruled that Texas’s Voter ID law was intended to discriminate against minorities.  This particular Voter ID law is recognized as one of the most anti-democratic voter suppression efforts in the country. The lead attorney on the case, Myrna Pérez, deputy director of the Democracy Program at the Brennan Center, has … More Thank You Thursday #11… a little bit late

Postcarding!

Time to get back to the Resistance!  I’m catching up my postcards.  I love the postcarding phenomenon.  It feels so old-fashioned (and maybe occasionally pointless?), but still mildly addictive.  This weekend’s efforts: To a bunch of economists: Almost 1,500 economists, including a few Nobel Laureates, signed a letter to Congress and the White House explaining how immigration is … More Postcarding!

I’ve been on vacation!  Fallen behind with my resistance work.  So I’m getting back on the bandwagon with a few thank yous. First, I’m thanking my own State Senator for leading the Presidential Tax Transparency Act, which would require candidates for President wishing to be on the ballot in California to release their tax returns. … More Thank You Thursday #10

Thank You Thursday #9

I cannot find ANYONE compelling to thank this week! But not because everything is terrible.  Everything is actually NOT terrible.  The Resistance has had some surprising and satisfying victories in the past week.  1) Steve Bannon was removed from the National Security Council.  2) Fumbling and ridiculous Congressman Devin Nunes has recused himself from overseeing the … More Thank You Thursday #9

I don’t especially like beer.  But I like companies that value the environment and renewable energy.

Deadline:  March 31, 2017 This week’s Thank You goes to the unexpected “breakout star” of the Democratic Party.  But before we get to that, here’s a happy reminder of why you do these thank you cards in the first place. Remember when we all sent thank you cards to beleaguered EPA staffers?  Well, the EPA staffers noticed. … More Thank You Thursday #7
