First things first. Many corporations have declared that they'll avoid going into Indiana as long as that nefarious "religious freedom" law remains on the books, and now state governments are following suit: Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy just signed an executive order banning state funding for travel to Indiana, and Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has announced he'll do the same. So People for the American Way helps you tell the rest of America's Governors to ban all state-funded travel to Indiana, or any other states that pass similar discriminatory legislation. Meanwhile, Georgia's legislature is also mulling a discrimination-in-the-name-of-the-Lord bill, SB 129, which could be finding its way to Governor Nathan Deal's desk as we speak, so the ACLU helps you tell Gov. Deal to veto SB 129 if it gets to him. I might just hurl if I hear anyone say that these efforts "oppress" people with "sincere" "religious" "beliefs." Shunning is not oppression; it's how civilized people convince those who have lost control to get it back.
Speaking of which, why is David Koch a board member of the Natural History Museums in New York and Washington, D.C.? In more innocent times, we might have presumed that such a man served on such boards as a way of giving back to the society that had done so much for him. But, as you know, these are not more innocent times -- in fact, we know from David Koch's own mouth that he "make(s) darn sure" that recipients of his largesse "spend it in a way that goes along with our intent." Hence the Koch-funded American Natural History Museum exhibit that suggests we might be able to "evolve" our way out of climate change, which it presumes is way off in the future. "Evolve" not by turning our energy grid away from fossil fuels and toward renewables, mind you, but by, you know, developing extra sweat glands. So Avaaz, CREDO, and Friends of the Earth all help you encourage these museums to kick David Koch off their boards and stop taking his money so he can spread his self-serving BS.
Finally, if you've missed previous opportunities to tell your Congressfolk to support H.R. 1466, the Surveillance State Repeal Act, then Roots Action still helps you do that. H.R. 1466 would do even more than repeal the mass surveillance portions of the USA PATRIOT Act and the FISA Amendments Act -- it would also stop the nefarious practice of making telecom corporations build backdoors into their own software so our government can slip in at its own will, and it would also extend strong whistleblower protections to those who would expose government wrongdoing in the exercise of its spying powers. H.R. 1466 is, naturally, an actual bipartisan bill, the brainchild of Kentucky Republican Thomas Massie and Wisconsin Democrat Mark Pocan; as such, of course, it has virtually no chance of being noticed by professional bipartisan-sniffers, who prefer to call bills that do nothing but fatten corporate bottom lines "bipartisan." But we should take every opportunity to teach the world what "bipartisan" actually means.
