If you've missed previous opportunities to tell our Department of Justice to drop absurd felony rioting charges against over 200 individuals who may or may not have been protesting the Trump inauguration, then Free Press still helps you do that. The idea that a journalist would serve up to 70 years for trying to get a story is bad enough, but now add the notion that medics and mere passers-by would also get that kind of sentence. Hopefully no civilized person would assert that some people just get swept up when other people are violent, because our Founders sure wouldn't. And hopefully no civilized person thinks "disruption" is a liberal phenomenon, not when teabaggers went to townhalls in 2009 with nothing but disruption in mind. A state that's sure of itself doesn't need to put innocent people in jail for decades on end just to demonstrate its fealty to "law and order." What a shame that phrases like "a state that's sure of itself," which I normally only use for foreign governments, I now have to use to describe the Trump Administration. But they ain't the boss of us; we are.
Meanwhile, our Department of the Interior wants to dramatically expand offshore oil drilling, because of course they do. Not to provide jobs for oil rig workers, either -- the Trump Administration only admires executives, and only aims to enrich executives, and no executive would create a job unless circumstances compelled them to do so. And this will be TEH BIGGESTZ AND TEH MOST BYOOTIFULZ DRILLINGZ EXPANSIONZ EVERZ!!!!!, not seven years after the Deepwater Horizon spill nearly destroyed the Gulf of Mexico's ecosystem, and not five weeks after the largest spill in the Gulf since then. Still, since we live in a functioning democracy, and since we live in a civilization where law and order still matters, the Trump Administration must take public comments about their plan, and the price of ignoring overwhelming public opposition won't necessarily just be bad PR, but could also include getting smacked down in a court of law. So Environmental Action helps you tell the Trump Administration to abandon its offshore drilling plan.
