Sam Knight at TruthOut suggests that President Biden could get us back into the Trans-Pacific "Partnership" "free" trade agreement, and that his nominee for Agriculture Secretary, Tom Vilsack, could "lead the way." You have no need to consider exactly how Mr. Vilsack would get us to re-enter the TPP -- not when you could be calling your Reps and Senators and say no to re-entering the TPP. The TPP would not only have outsourced our jobs -- as even "free" trade supporters like Larry Summers ultimately admitted "free" trades do! -- but it would have nullified our laws, by expanding the "investor-state dispute settlement" system so that foreign investors could sue the taxpayer whenever we so much as passed an anti-pollution law that "cost" them money. The best thing Donald Trump ever did was withdraw our nation from the TPP; the second-best thing he ever did was negotiate a replacement for NAFTA that drastically curtailed the use of ISDS systems with Canada and Mexico. They think (or wish!) we've forgotten about all of that, so we've got to remind them.
Meanwhile, President Biden may have ended the "national emergency" Donald Trump used to fund his vanity border wall, but somehow we still have over 3,000 soldiers at the border. You could ask "if it's not a national emergency, why do we need troops there?," but we're not supposed to put soldiers at the border in the first place unless we're actually repelling an invasion. Which we're not! An invasion would consist of actual soldiers, not people fleeing oppressive governments, or even people just trying to make a better life for themselves and their families. Hence Win Without War helps you tell Defense Secretary Austin to withdraw soldiers from our Southern border. And again, don't brook any silliness from right-wingers about how some "caravan" of immigrants is coming here to "change who we are." Folks have been settling in other lands since time immemorial, and most of the folks who complain about immigrants today had ancestors who were once Those People, too. Now, of course, they say their ancestors were of course "the good ones"! But no matter how much they twist the facts, the facts will snap back. And it'll hurt when they do.
In other news, the New York Police Department plans to finalize its policy on the use of facial recognition technology, i.e., the technology worse at telling black folks apart than even your Trump-loving uncle. Fortunately, they're accepting comments on their proposed policy (which would, guess what, use facial recognition technology) until tomorrow, so Amnesty International helps you tell the NYPD to reject the use of facial recognition technology. As I've said, facial recognition technology isn't just an invasion of your privacy -- I mean, should police harassment be the result of literally any time you venture out into the public? Because that's what facial recognition technology allows them to do! It's also a bad system that just so happens to lead, far too often, to police harassing innocent black folks. And Amnesty International also reminds us that if you decide to visit New York as a tourist, your face will be in their database, too -- which will be a boon to the tourist industry in cities like Portland, San Francisco, and Boston, which have all banned facial recognition technology. You may want to remind the NYPD of that.
Finally, you've heard that big pharmaceutical corporations are paying billions of dollars in settlements over their role in addicting people to opioids -- but you may not know that those corporations can deduct the cost of settlements from their taxes! Nice work if you can get it! And, surprise, surprise, the Trump tax "reform" of 2017 and the tax-cuts-for-the-rich in the CARES Act from last year made this situation a whole lot worse. I'd ask "what good is it punishing corporations when they can just deduct the punishment from their taxes?," except I also know that, for some people, not punishing corporations for their obvious wrongdoing is a feature, not a bug. Hence Americans for Tax Fairness helps you tell your Congressfolk to close the loopholes that enable these corporations to deduct their settlements from their taxes. If you or I mess up as badly as they have, we don't get a tax break. Maybe we should all become corporations, then! Yeah, they love it when we think like that, as recent events surrounding GameStop may have reminded you.
