Long story short: tell our Justice Department to investigate the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, tell federal agencies to take climate change into account when spending taxpayer money, tell our government to keep radioactive waste off the vaunted Three Rivers, tell our Forest Service to keep logging out of the Tongass National Forest, and tell AT&T to cut off life support for the notorious One America News Network. Use the email/petition tools in the following paragraphs to communicate your will.
People for the American Way helps you tell our Department of Justice to investigate the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. Not because it didn't go our way -- that's just right-wing whiners projecting their inadequacies on us! -- but because we all saw how suspicious it was. Imagine being on trial for murder and watching the judge refuse to let lawyers call victims "victims" but allow lawyers to call them "looters." That same judge allowed Mr. Rittenhouse himself to pick which jurors to send home after both sides rested their cases, and the verdict absurdly expanded "self-defense" to include brats bringing killing machines to protests "just in case." The George Zimmerman verdict sucked, but even that made more sense than this! If our Justice Department investigates this absurdity, we might get some justice down the line, and that's worth the effort.
Progress America helps you tell our government to take climate change into account in its procuring decisions. I mean, you'd want them to go the extra mile to keep our planet livable if it were your money, right? Oh, wait: it is your money. Just so happens President Biden has called for this very thing -- but of course they have to take public comments on that first, and the right-wing whine machine is out in force with their comment-bots and paid crisis actors, so we have to speak up, too. No, "paid crisis actors" is entirely an appropriate thing to call right-wing commenters who take money to leave absurd public comments on matters concerning our government. It's not an appropriate thing to call us, of course -- we do good works for free.
MoveOn helps you tell our government to keep fracking wastewater off the Monongahela, Allegheny, and Ohio Rivers. Those would be the famous "Three Rivers" that lent their name to the Pittsburgh Pirates' home stadium back in the day. Why keep fracking wastewater off the Three Rivers? Because the good citizens of Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia depend on these rivers for clean water, and if a fracking wastewater barge sinks or springs a leak, it'll pollute that clean water so good folks can't drink it or wash with it. Seems pretty simple to me! If your snotty libertarian nephew says where will you put the wastewater then ha ha ha snort, just tell him there are a lot of ways to meet our energy needs that don't require fracking. I mean, c'mon, this is America, the can-do country!
Penn Environment helps you tell our U.S. Forest Service to restore protections to the Tongass National Forest so that loggers don't spoil it. The Trump Administration, as you recall, decided to exempt over nine million acres of the Tongass National Forest as it wound down its evil term in office last year, saying that the rule would not cause "major adverse impacts to the recreation, tourism, and fishing industries, while providing benefits to the timber and mining industries, increasing opportunities for community infrastructure, and eliminating unnecessary regulations." Not mentioned: that the thousand-year-old trees of the Tongass trap more carbon than any other area in America. But, hey, as long as timber and mining CEOs get to gild the plumbing in their 19th vacation home, who cares?
Finally, the Juggernaut Project helps you tell AT&T to stop funding the notorious One America News Network. Right-wingers love to talk about "starving the beast," the "beast," in their view, being our government, even though it provides services we need and pay for. Fact is, right-wing media is the beast, and I mean "beast" in the Book of Revelations sense. OANN, like Newsmax, Fox News, and The First, traffics in by far the worst drug in America -- right-wing rage -- and so they're the beast we need to starve. And yeah, I just said right-wing rage is a worse drug than heroin or fentanyl. Heroin and fentanyl destroy lives and families, but right-wing rage destroys civilizations. Take its money away and it'll go down faster than a vampire in a Nevada noon.
