  • Change the Name of San Diego's Lindbergh Field
    Mr. Lindbergh contributed to the US not entering WWII soon enough. He said the Jews were one of three current world problems. He also said one thing people couldn't discuss was the 'Jewish problem.' A city that wants to appear accepting, wants socially conscious businesses to be founded or re-locate there, and wants to tackle hate doesn't welcome people to their environs via Mr. Lindbergh. As to their rationale that Lindbergh did x, y, and z, Germany created the first jet. Does that mean we ignore everything else they did back then? Dr. Mengele might have had redeeming qualities. I wouldn't suggest pointing that out.

  • Tell WSDOT to clear Snoqualmie Pass of road construction on heavy traffic days
    Traffic data collection has not kept up with the current patterns of population growth and a simple restriction of this main artery between King county and Kittitas county causes backups of up to 3 hours and 16 miles between Bandera and Cle Elum. This causes a very dangerous situation for the people stuck in that bottleneck, as well as reducing the free travel and economic commerce between these two counties. A simple reshuffling of schedules that would accompany this priority would cost the state absolutely nothing, but benefit the state greatly. Are you tired of waiting or changing your plans because of the WSDOT construction schedule? Tell them so.

  • Chicago: Say NO to Trump’s Secret Police
    Over the last two weeks, we’ve seen heavily armed federal troops controlled by Donald Trump descend on Portland: snatching peaceful Black Lives Matter protesters off the streets and putting them in unmarked vans. They tear-gassed, beat, and shot protesters with “less lethal” rounds, injuring several and almost killing one. Portland’s mayor and city council, Oregon’s governor and state legislators have denounced Trump’s authoritarian tactics and called on the feds to leave. Now, the president of Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), John Catanzara, is helping bring Trump’s goons to Chicago. Catanzara—who has had more than 35 official complaints against him, and been suspended 6 times—sent a letter to Trump asking him to send federal agents to “bring civility back to the streets of Chicago.” Just days later, Trump announced that he’s sending troops to Chicago and other cities across the country, and he referenced the Chicago FOP’s letter to him to help justify it. Trump is attempting to create a national, federal police force that operates in secret and is accountable only to him, not to local communities or their elected officials. With outrage erupting at these plans, the Trump administration is claiming the officers they’re sending to Chicago and other cities are there to fight violent crime, not to crack down on protesters like in Portland. But Trump and his allies in the FOP (and other police unions) are blaming a rise in violent crime on a climate of hostility to police, saying that federal troops are needed to “restore order.” Trump’s enthusiasm for using law enforcement to target his political enemies is clear. He’s been practicing in Washington D.C. and Portland, and now he wants to bring the same repressive federal police to Chicago and other cities. It’s a direct power grab, and a dog whistle to the violent racists in Trump’s base that crave violence against protesters and people of color. It’s likely a preparation for using these same federal forces to suppress the vote and steal the election in November. And now, police unions are going over the heads of their own police chiefs and mayors to invite Trump’s federal police into their cities, to collaborate with them in a violent crackdown on peaceful protest and dissent. The national FOP is strongly supporting Trump’s move (while defending Catanzara and helping him attack Chicago’s mayor). The president of Portland’s police union had a friendly meeting with Trump’s Director of Homeland Security to discuss the federal agents there—without the knowledge of Portland’s chief of police, and while Portland’s leaders were calling for the feds to leave. The ACLU is suing the Trump administration to stop his federal agents from attacking journalists in Portland, and the National Police Association filed a legal brief against the ACLU and in support of Trump—arguing that police need to be able to use violence against journalists and legal observers. It is long past time for Chicago’s political leaders to refuse to negotiate or work with the FOP in any way. Chicago’s FOP is notorious for attacking, intimidating, and threatening activists and political leaders who get in their way. It takes extreme measures to undermine reform and block accountability for violent and abusive officers. Chicago’s FOP and other police unions have long promoted violent, unaccountable, and authoritarian policing on the local level. Now they are inviting in federal troops to help escalate violence and repression against those who are challenging the police and demanding change in Chicago. They are signing up to work with Trump—a would-be totalitarian dictator—as he sets up a secret, nationwide, personal police force. It’s incredibly dangerous, and we can’t allow it to go unchecked. Join us in calling on Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, the Chicago city council, and other leaders to denounce the FOP and refuse to negotiate with them on any aspect of police accountability and reform until they drastically reverse course.

  • NEW YORK YANKEES: DON’T LET TRUMP THROW THE 1ST PITCH
    Donald Trump is the antithesis of every value upon which the New York Yankees community is based, and has gone out of his way many times over to offend, dehumanize, and harm the very people upon whom the organization depends, both players and fans. He has no business stepping foot through the stadium doors, let alone onto the mound in a position of honor.

  • House Us AZ
    The COVID-19 pandemic is something that could have been mitigated from the beginning. Our Governor waited until the problem became a full blown crisis to do anything and now, the people of Arizona are having to deal with the consequences. We have been facing a housing crisis for the last couple years, but now we are staring down the barrel of a homelessness crisis. The Governor has continued to skirt responsibility for the repercussions of his own inaction. It is now time for him to step up and fill the shoes that the people of Arizona elected him to wear. An estimated 365,000 rental households (or 577,000 individual renters) are at high risk of being displaced from their homes due to changes in financial income, loss of job, or unexpected sickness from COVID-19. The funds we request are monies that are, to our knowledge, unallocated and sitting in state coffers controlled by the executive, Governor Ducey. Without action now, it will be too late and Arizonans will suffer. Arizonans did not choose this hardship. They have been made the collateral damage of an unprecedented hardship that could have been handled better by those in charge.

  • Humble ISD Is Not Ready To Return To In Person Learning.
    Humble Independent School District, which provides education to students in grades pre-k through 12 in Atascocita, Houston, Humble, And Kingwood, Texas is set to be one of THE FIRST public school districts in the nation to return to in-person learning in the midst of the Covid-19 Pandemic. The start of this school year comes at a time when the Houston Area is seeing an increase in community spread and hospitals & ICUs are at risk of reaching full capacity. There is not a viable treatment or vaccine. The district does not plan to enforce the wearing of masks for students or staff. There is no plan for classrooms where someone has tested positive to quarantine. Top health officials are advising that students and staff not return to in-person learning. Harris County Judge, Lina Hidalgo has issued recommendations for minimizing the health and safety risks of the county districts. The superintendent has publicly acknowledged in writing the intent and desire to NOT follow those recommendations. UPDATE: Harris County Public Health, and Judge Hidalgo issued an order delaying ALL in-person activities for students until Sept. 8th. Humble ISD plans for defy those orders and resume in person athletics camps. Virtually all area school districts, who are set to open later this summer than Humble ISD, have announced their plans to start the school year online. Humble ISD following suit would slow spread and minimize the risks to our children, families, district, and community as a whole. To open right now, would be irresponsible given the data from health experts and the advice of local, state, and national officials.

    The level of the barriers are the same height as handle grips of most bikes. Even at slow speeds once grip hits the barrier the bike's front tire turns and rider falls off. Since installed barriers have damaged bikes and worse caused bodily harm.

  • Philly City Commissioners: Make elections free and fair now
    First, transparency and accountability from the City Commissioner’s office is critical to ensuring free and fair elections. As elected officials, the City Commissioners must act in good faith and engage in open dialogue with constituents so that we can ensure safe, secure, and equal access to the ballot box. Otherwise, our elections and our democracy will be at risk. Second, a clear plan is needed to address problems that arose in the primary election. From mail-in ballot accessibility to insecure ballot counting, these issues threaten the integrity of our elections: they have the potential to disenfranchise thousands of voters, cast doubt upon our election’s validity, and expose our results to lawsuits. But the City Commissioners have the power to solve them. To do that, they need to act now. All eyes will be on PA this November and, as a result, on Philly. Our health and our votes are at stake if action is not taken starting now.

  • Disband the Department of Homeland Security
    The President has deployed unidentified federal agents from the Department of Homeland Security and sub-agencies to Portland over the objection of local and state governments. These agents have subsequently escalated conflict, and gleefully beaten, shot, and gassed peaceful protesters, and kidnapped others off the street in unmarked vehicles. The President has threatened to deploy more agents to Chicago and other "Democrat" cities, against the will of the states. It has become clear that the Department of Homeland Security has exceeded its original purpose. It has been transformed into a secret police force used by the President to inflict terror against those with whose politics he disagrees. Although unlikely, we are in a small window of time where it may be possible to undo the damage that has been done, and dismantle this occupying army being deployed against U.S. cities. If we hesitate to take action, the President will only be emboldened, and the precedent of using the Department of Homeland Security for political retribution will be established. Please tell Congress to dismantle the Department of Homeland Security and some sub-agencies.

  • Federal officers/agents: Stay away from protesters in Portland and other cities
    United States citizens and residents have the freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and freedom of association. Protesters' civil rights are being trampled on and violated. Putin stops protests in Russia and Xi Jinping hurts protesters in China but this is not acceptable in the United States of America. Photo credit: Skylor Powell
