Gray Chang: “Why would someone pay $5.95 for one of your e-books when they can get the hardcover for $0.01 (plus $3.99 shipping)?”
My friend Ira offers this Practical Guide for Resisting the Trump Agenda. Having watched Republicans block much of President Obama’s agenda, the authors see lessons for thwarting the worst of Trump’s initiatives and appointments.
Ira also offers this ingenious extension you can install in Chrome or Firefox that fact-checks Trump’s tweets. Even if you don’t tweet, you’ll find it of interest.
If you have 30 seconds to support Senator Elizabeth Warren’s request to audit Trump’s finances, Ira has discovered that “the way to make sure your support counts is to email administrators Katherine Siggerud and Timothy Minnelli.” Something along these lines:
Subject: Audit for President-Elect Trump’s financial concerns
Dear Ms. Siggerud and Mr. Minnelli:
I’m writing in support of Senator Elizabeth Warren’s request for an audit of our incoming President’s finances, to prohibit conflicts of interest that would prevent him from carrying out the responsibilities of the office without corrupt influence. His tax returns almost must be disclosed.
Sincerely . . .
And finally — thank you for all this, Ira! — he offers this protest music video featuring his friend Harry Belafonte.
Quote of the Day
John Wanamaker found an employee in a dispute with a customer. She wanted a blouse that was being sold only with a skirt. The clerk was insisting they only came together. Wanamaker walked over to the clerk and whispered in his ear the secret of marketing: "Give the lady what she wants."~.
