Link Love

I’m not entirely sure what to do about this new wave of fascism– does anybody have thoughts on action items?  I did call one of my senators and complained about his saying fascist things, but what is the best thing to do (other than donating to protesters in Portland– can’t find the thread I was going to link to here, anybody have it?) to combat secret police and Trump’s interference in the Census and USPS?  No matter what happens, getting people to register to vote and to vote is still going to be incredibly important, so postcards to voters and votefwd are ways to do SOMETHING while trying to figure out what phonecalls to make.  Also donating to your favorite senate, house, or state-level government candidate.  (Or just swingleft if you’re not sure who to pick.)  Also I’ve bought so many stamps I regularly get the post office’s stamp catalog and they have some really fun new stuff.  (Also did you know they sell stuff that’s not stamps?  Like jigsaw puzzles and magic kits and halloween costumes and toy cars.)

This thread from Portland is eye-opening and horrifying.

Ignore this article, but look at the charts(!)

More details on the value of different kinds of masks.

A difference in differences primer with some of the newer stuff.

    I was wondering the same thing. I’ll contact our state representatives again but I don’t know that it’s going to have much of an effect overall. I had one link you could try using in my link love this week for donating to help protestors but I will keep an eye out for any others that seem likely.

    The dog USPS costume is pretty awesome and I keep hoping there’s a dog I know that will wear it. Sera MIGHT put up with it but she’s also probably too big.

    I feel helpless too.

    Re, the AOC speech, all I could think was, “Well, our local pedophile/rapist has a wife and two daughters, so….”

    Read this thread on the post office and call your senators about the heroes act:
