Despite the compelling case for conviction of Donald Trump our House has made all week, we have every reason to believe our Senators will fail to do their duty and convict our former President. At least, that's the way to bet -- though I'm starting to suspect that the way to bet is actually the opposite of how everyone else bets! In any case, Amnesty International helps you tell Acting Attorney General Wilkinson to investigate the events of January 6. If that seems like an "obsession" to you, quietly navigate away from this page, and go read something on Newsmax or OANN or whatever diddles your rage gland. I'm serious. If Donald Trump's months-long attempt to overturn the 2020 election doesn't obsess you, there's something deeply wrong with you as a citizen. And I suspect a DOJ investigation would turn up more useful information than even the House's impeachment case has done. After all, the House put its case together rather quickly, and I suspect we can learn a lot more by completing a more thorough investigation.
In a peripherally-related note, MoveOn helps you tell big warehouse corporation Costco to get MyPillow products out of its stores. MyPillow's CEO, after all, is Mike Lindell, who has trafficked in absurd "election fraud" theories and tried to goad Donald Trump into declaring martial law so he could overturn the election he lost by seven million votes, the election our cybersecurity chief said was the most secure in American history when he had every motivation to say the opposite. No, Mike Lindell does not have a "First Amendment right" to have his products at Costco locations. Our First Amendment protects him from going to jail merely for his bloviating (though for incitement to violence or terrorist threats, not so much). Our First Amendment does not grant a "right" to be free from the consequences of his actions. And to those who would be "wary" at the "chilling" effect of a Costco ban: you can navigate the fuck away from this page, too. You should be more scared to live in a society where no one pays for the evil they've done.
Meanwhile, Amazon is apparently installing surveillance cameras on their delivery vehicles, ostensibly to watch the drivers, I suppose, but how much surveillance does a corporation need to do on its employees? You don't need a proctoscope to know when a driver's slacking. And I'm old enough to remember when boosting workers' morale solved most workplace problems, but when you treat your workers as moneyjars, I guess morale matters little. And naturally, Amazon's surveillance won't just be on the drivers, it'll be on everything around them, and their recent history suggests they'd just be happy to share whatever their watchful eyes find with police, warrant or not. And if you're tempted to say if you've done nothing wrong you've got nothing to fear, consider that an Amazon surveillance camera is also just another thing crooks can hack; how many strangers do you want observing your habits? Hence Fight for the Future helps you tell Amazon to stop making their delivery vehicles into Big Brother.
Finally, as part of our efforts to save our Post Office, Daily Kos helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass the Postal Banking Act (no bill number at this writing), which would allow our U.S. Postal Service to offer basic banking services to good Americans. What's that I hear? Why don't they just go to the bank? Because banks don't like to serve a lot of urban and rural poor areas of America, that's why, which leaves a lot of good Americans with very few options -- like payday lenders! Should anyone have to put up with the choice of 300% death spiral loans or no loans just because they live where banks don't want to go? The Postal Banking Act (which various Congressfolk have introduced in previous Congresses) would offer savings and checking accounts, but would also offer small loans, which might well make payday lenders completely unnecessary. And our Postal Service used to offer these services until the late '60s, and there's no good reason they can't again.
