Good morning, FAMily! ❤️
Today is Wednesday, November 15, 2017.
As our country is rocked with another mass shooting (this is all completely normal, right?), we urge you not to become desensitized to the violence. The shooter was not able to enter the elementary school, as it was on lockdown, but shot into the school where he could…which leads us to our first action:
1. Call your Michigan house Representatives and urge them to vote down the trio of gun bills (SB 584-586) that would allows handguns in schools, churches, and stadiums. Also call Snyder to ensure if this makes it to his desk, he needs to veto it.
Unfortunately, that is not the only ridiculous gun-related legislation being considered in Michigan. Apparently, we are turning into the Wild West…yeehaaaw! Check out what is coming down the line:
2. Speaking of Michigan, getting Environmental for a moment…we love our fresh, clean Great Lakes, right? So, the 64-year old Enbridge 5 Line that goes through many of our critical tributaries, as well as the Straits of Mackinac is losing its coating, and they lied about it. You know, everything is fine…nothing to see here. Snyder is even alarmed, so you know it MUST be bad, because he doesn’t normally give a shit about our water….
We urge you to contact your state legislators and call for Line 5 to be shut down. There are also three public feedback sessions in which you can get involved in December in Taylor, St. Ignace, and Traverse City (check the MLive article below for dates).
Here is everything you need to know about the line:
And here is an article discussing Enbridge’s lies with the session dates:
3. Surprise! The Senate is going after the ACA in their tax plan….call, call, call MoC (both houses) to protest this latest heinous addition.
The House version, on the other hand, wants to gut benefits that keep many grad students in school. Is it a surprise the republicans want to keep America uneducated? Between this plan and DeVos, they are hitting every level of education in the country.
4. Lastly, all you Cards Against Humanity fans…their holiday celebration this year includes a plan to make the border wall a troublesome issue for 45. Get your holiday pack today (or, when you can next purchase, as the first promotion sold out in less than 24 hours). Check out the hilarity below:
Thanks for doing what you d, FAM – Every. Single. Day.
We love you! 😘
