Change.org helps you tell your Congressfolk to enact a national mask mandate. Because wearing a damn mask outside helps slow the spread of COVID-19! And no, right-wingers, it's not about your "freedom," unless by "freedom" you mean "freedom to infect others with a deadly disease." And certainly it's not like Nazis forcing Jews to wear the Star of David! (I mean, we're not all Jews, and if we were, making us wear masks to set us off from other people would be pointless. Right-wingers need to work on their damn similes.) We've coddled these don't-tread-on-me tantrum-throwers for too long, and I, for one, am willing to bring the force of law upon them. Everyone who's thought about the matter knows that masks do what the scientists say they do, and everyone who disagrees merely wishes it weren't true, and they'll latch on to whatever snake oil salesman doesn't sound completely off their rocker. Y'all will let me know if my true feelings aren't coming across here, right? I wouldn't want to be accused of holding back.
Meanwhile, H.R. 4816/S. 2529, the Whistleblower Programs Improvement Act, would (as its title suggests) expand whistleblower protections, which currently only extend to those who blow the whistle on wrongdoing directly to our SEC or CFTC; the bill would extend those protections to those who assist in whistleblower investigations. I can't imagine what objections folks would have to that, unless they're of the DESTROYZ ALLZ REGULASHUNZ!!!! variety, or the FRIVULUZ LAWSUITZ!!!! variety. And, as you know, our government has spent hundreds of billions of dollars in COVID-19 relief lately, which means hundreds of billions of dollars of taxpayer money (i.e., our money) that could be stolen. Some right-wingers use that as an excuse to say all government programs are awful, but I say you need to have the courage to do right, and that includes punishing those who would subvert your efforts. So the National Whistleblower Center helps you tell your Congressfolk to protect taxpayers by passing the Whistleblower Programs Improvement Act.
Finally, our Department of Homeland Security (or DHS) has lately proposed reclassifying complaint records as "temporary," which would give our National Archives and Records Administration (or NARA) the power to destroy any records of those complaints within four years of their filing! Our government destroying records of complaints against it -- why, who could find that suspicious? It's almost like they've got something to hide, like, you know, family separation, forced hysterectomies, wrongful deportation, or murder or sexual abuse at concentration camps! Seriously, if you want to be the greatest nation on Earth, you'd better be able to admit and overcome your mistakes, and you'd better be able to repent for your evil works; otherwise, you're not the greatest nation on Earth, but just another country doomed to get lost in the sands of time, and we'd all like to be remembered for the good we did on Earth, right? So Open the Government helps you tell our DHS to scuttle its proposal to censor complaints about its nefarious works.
