Lets Make A Difference
I started my websites so I could organize interesting YouTube videos into useful categories that I could refer to when I was talking to friends. Then I wanted to capture Daily News so I could accummulate the news into Magaine Pages. Now, I want to hammer on issues that are so urgent that we change, but are just flowing away in yesterdays news. I always wanted to write a program so readers could pick an issue, easily find their congressional representatives, and easily send an email or letter to their legislature.

In the left column you will see two websites from SunlightFoundation.com, one website was made with Politico.com, while the other was made with BillMoyers.com.

In the right column are Issues that we need to pay attention to and WRITE our govenment representatives

In the next couple of days I'm going to create short tutorials, using and Issue from the right column and sending an email/or letter to my representatives from the left column.

Is Your State Legislator a Member of ALEC?

Many of the laws that affect us most directly -- from taxes to marriage equality to voter ID -- are made at the state level. The idea that change begins with the states is one of the founding principles of the American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC. In state houses around the country, hundreds of ALEC "model laws" are proposed or enacted that would, among other things, dilute collective bargaining rights, make it harder for some Americans to vote and limit corporate liability for harm caused to consumers.

Donation


I am one of those "once" middle class, over 60, over educated, under-employed, semi retired, soon to be poor workers, that everyone is talking about. 
But I have a modest standard of living so I plan to give all extra donation, beyond my immediate needs, to several of my favorite charities.
