Two years ago, when Hurricane Harvey slammed into Louisiana and Texas, did our state and federal governments move prisoners who couldn't get out of the hurricane's way? No, they did not. And are they planning to do so now that another storm is about to hit the Gulf Coast? Not unless we tell them to, in numbers they can't ignore, so Roots Action helps you tell federal, state, and local officials to move their prisoners out of the storm's path. If you're saying if they didn't want to be left in the path of a major storm they shouldn't have done the crime, just navigate away from this page right now -- if you won't treat your prisoners humanely, you have no business calling yourself a civilization. And if you're saying WHEREZ IZ TEH MONEYZ COMINGZ FROMZ!!!!!, don't be the fool who advocated for more tax cuts for the rich and more corporate tax cuts. As anyone acquainted with arithmetic would tell you, actions have consequences.
Meanwhile, the House did pass an amendment to its defense authorization bill that would prevent our President from waging war on Iran without Congressional approval, but as you know, that's exactly the kind of amendment that dies in conference, hence Daily Kos helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass S. 1039, the Prevention of Unconstitutional War with Iran Act. You may have heard that the British Ambassador to the United States claimed that our President abandoned the Iran nuclear deal in order to "spite" President Obama. I don't know whether that's true or not -- it fits our President's penchant for drama! -- but he certainly didn't abandon it because it wasn't working, and now he has a Secretary of State and a National Security Advisor (both of whom he picked after firing their predecessors) who are constantly agitating for war with Iran. So let's remind our President that his job is to listen to us.
