Puerto Rico: Still getting screwed!

After FEMA declined to release their Puerto Rico hurricane plan, ProPublica found the agency’s equivalent plan for Hawaii posted, unredacted, on the internet by the Department of Defense. The Hawaii plan includes granular details down to, for example, how many specially outfitted medical aircraft the federal government would send to Hawaii after a Category 4 hurricane. It also describes an 85-step process to restore electricity on the islands. Asked why the Puerto Rico plan was too sensitive to release publicly while the Hawaii plan was not, a FEMA spokesman said: “We aren’t able to speak for DoD or the State of Hawaii.” Write your Representatives and demand they pressure FEMA to reveal these public documents.

Abstain from abstinence-only education.

Abstinence only programs don't work. And the Trump administration is making their abstinence only policies openly racist, to boot. Tell your elected officials you believe in science and sex ed should be for everyone!

Republicans love criminals?

Just because our president flouts the rule of law, that doesn't give other people a pass. White collar crimes are crimes. Why are some Republican hopefuls in the 2018 mid-term elections getting a pass for being criminals? Hold your representatives to higher standards!

Put down the pesticides.

Neonicotinoid pesticides have got to go. Europe hasn't allowed Neonics in over 5 years but this spring America is set to spray an area 2x the size of California with these toxins.

Jeff Sessions is the Worst: Part 1,000,000

Jefferson Beauregard Sessions the 3rd is a piece of shit who hates Civil Rights, women, minorities, and basically anyone who isn't an old white dude from the South (but made a one-time exception for an old white dude from New York). Tell your elected officials that they must fight his racist agenda every step of the way.
