If you've missed previous opportunities to tell your Congressfolk to stop our Administration from starting a war with Iran, then Greyroots Action still helps you do that. We have good reasons for not going to war with Iran -- like, that we'll utterly fail at "regime change" like we always do, and that we'll help create more terrorists from the ranks of regular Iranians who watch what we do. Also, we already had the nuclear weapons problem under control until our Administration pulled out of it; why should we reward their stupidity and venality with the war they want? Don't believe the hype that our President is furious with Messrs. Bolton and Pompeo for wanting to "push us into a war." Nobody put a gun to his head and made him hire those guys, particularly when he already had people in those jobs! He put them in those jobs either because he really wants to go to war with Iran or because he wants to look like the guy who prevented with Iran; either way, it's drama, and it's not even good drama. So let's not reward drama anymore.
Meanwhile, a consortium of good government groups (including People for the American Way and Progress America) helps you tell Virginia state legislators to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (or ERA). What's that, you say? The expiration date for ERA ratification was 1982? Tell that to the Nevada and Illinois state legislatures, who ratified the ERA in 2017 and 2018, respectively, meaning that 37 of the required 38 states have ratified it. And tell that to the good citizens who have been petitioning their Congressfolk to repeal the 1982 expiration date, expiration dates not being particularly common in Constitutional amendments in the first place. While you're at it, tell that to the women who've been waiting for justice all their lives. If Virginia ratifies the ERA, only one more state has to do it, and then Congress has to repeal the expiration date, and voila! The ERA becomes the law of the land. But none of that will happen if we don't speak out.
Finally, Consumer Reports helps you tell Ticketmaster to stop springing hidden fees upon ticketbuyers. You look at ticket prices and they're already too damn high because bands don't have to put the effort into touring that they used to -- not that very many older bands will tell you they really enjoyed being on the road! -- but then Ticketmaster heaps on an average of 27 percent of tickets' face value in stuff like service charges, processing charges, and convenience charges! And lately Ticketmaster has announced that it won't give its customers honest, up-front pricing, unless our government tells them to. Didn't they take Corporate Propaganda 101? You're supposed to promise to do better in order to forestall government action, and then when you utterly fail to deliver on that promise, you say "well what are you going to do? Not see Thom Yorke? Hahahahaha!" But, actually, they're not the only game in town anymore, so maybe they'd do well to get ahead of the curve here.
