Whats the point in filibustering Gorsuch? SCOTUS justices are extremely hard to put in an ideological box and the guy is well-qualified. Yeah, sadpants about Garland, but see above about elections. If Gorsuch is denied, what kind of rightwing godzillamothra hybrid do you think will be next? You think the army of redhats is gonna stand for 4 years of senatorial obstruction?
Cant tell if serious. But yeah, needless to say participation in civic life is about more than the annual casting of a vote.

It's crazy how seniors will consistently vote racism over their own self interest. See some of the recent episodes of Trumpcast for some scary research on how Trump's legacy may long outlast him, by decades, through normalizing racism.

^ haven't listened to the mentioned podcast but racism has been normalized for a long time, especially among Trump supporters.

In deep-blue NY alone, where there are few R-held House of Reps seats to begin with, this would likely cause the 19th and 22nd to flip back to D, and possibly the 11th.

I've been trolled. The person at the house supposedly hosting the ACLU thing knows nothing about it.

A group of environmental activists pulled off an elaborate act of vandalism at one of President Trump’s premier golf courses early Sunday morning.

The group — which labels itself an “anonymous environmental activist collective” — snuck into Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., and carved a message into the green with six-foot-tall letters that said: “NO MORE TIGERS. NO MORE WOODS.”

Resistance Action Items 3/14/2017 (Pi Day)
We need all hands on deck to oppose AHCA. All the other stuff is great too, but we're making opposing AHCA the top priority for now. So try to call your three Reps today and oppose AHCA. Here's a short script:

Re: The Resistance: Actvism, protests and more!

Important facts to know about AHCA or RepubliCare as I call it:
  • 14 million will lose insurance in the first year
  • 24 million will lose insurance over eight years
  • Premiums will go up 15-20% in the first year alone
  • 7 million will lose their employer-sponsored health care
  • The tax cut benefit goes almost entirely to millionaires and billionaires
  • Medicaid is totally gutted under the new plan, and even people that are covered under Medicaid would be limited in the benefits in they receive. This would CRIPPLE the working poor who are already struggling to stay above water.
  • Some of the biggest burdens for RepubliCare fall on older Americans and those just struggling to get by. It's not right to take away their health insurance to finance tax cuts for the rich!
  • RepubliCare actually does NOTHING to reduce the costs of health insurance. In fact, it will increase costs which means higher premiums.
