If you've missed previous opportunities to tell President-elect Biden to fire all of our soon-to-be-ex-President's right-wing appointees to federal positions, then Progress America still helps you do that. Too harsh? Not "bipartisan" enough? Not "helping America heal" enough? How can America heal if all the people in our government who live to destroy our government are still there? How can our Post Office get back on its feet if Louis DeJoy still runs it? How can Social Security serve seniors and disabled Americans if Andrew Saul gums up the works? How can our CFPB protect good Americans from financial predators if Kathy Kraninger won't even let our CFPB issue regulations? How can our IRS catch tax cheats if Charles Rettig acts so obviously like a Presidential crony? How can we root out government wrongdoing if our Inspectors General are all Presidential loyalists? If President Biden can't root out this evil in our government, we're going to have a long four or eight years, folks. But my Spider-sense tells me he won't even try unless he hears from us, in numbers that cannot be mistaken.
Meanwhile, early voting on the two Senate runoffs in Georgia began this week, and Georgia poll workers, naturally, face increasing online threats -- some find their addresses published online (for informational purposes only, and certainly not so anyone can beat them up or kill them wink-wink), while others find nooses with their names on them outside of their houses. Nobody serving our democracy should have to put up with that crap, so Color of Change helps you tell Facebook to ban poll worker harassment. Why Facebook? Because everyone's on Facebook, and bad actors use the info they get from Facebook to harass poll workers! And Facebook knows online harassment is a problem, otherwise they wouldn't protect politicians and journalists more than they protect regular folks. Facebook, of course, also lets its algorithms help Nazi wannabes find each other, which greatly increases the possibility that good Americans get beaten up merely for exercising their actual First Amendment rights. So, stop me if you've heard this before, but Facebook needs to do better by us.
