March 15, Action

A March 15 action item: Send a postcard to Donald Trump. Send at least one card, but it is hard to stop at one.  Weekly, I have been sending postcards, and it is good for the soul.
What issues are you passionate about? What are you upset about? What do you think of the first few weeks of this administration? Time is now to express your thoughts. March 15, is “Send a Postcard to Donald Trump Day.”
Spread the word! Everyone on Earth should let Donald J. Trump know how he’s doing as the president of the United States.
No postcards? Make you own. Cut 4 inch by 6 inch pieces from poster board. Walgreens usually has poster board, but they also might have postcards.
On March 15th, mail your messages to:

Donald J. Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

My postcards this week will be about clean water/clean air, the Great Lakes Restoration Fund, healthcare for everyone, enormous tax cuts for billionaires, travel bans, and all the lies coming out of this White House. I believe in being positive, don’t loose sight of the important issues facing us all. There are so many concerns and so many issues, go for it!!  Remember, Wednesday, March 15. Thank you.

NO one has called, but the White House comment line is closed!
No one has made calls to Donald Trump complaining about his renewal of the Keystone and Dakota Access pipelines??? The White House comment line has been closed for a few weeks!  This is what he said this week, “As you know I approved two pipelines that were stuck in limbo forever. I don’t even think it was controversial. I approved them. I haven’t even had one call from anybody saying that was a terrible thing you did. I haven’t had one call … Then as you know I did the Dakota Pipeline and no one called up to complain.” Donald Trump
The telephone comment line to might be closed , but you can send a tweet @realDonaldTrump or send a post card. I hope you will do both. You can also call one of his businesses:  or contact him through this link:

Some background:

  1. This is an excellent analysis from NRDC.
  2. More information from Ecowatch
  3. An idea for a postcard from NRDC “I am outraged that you have issued executive memoranda clearing the way for the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines with no input from the American public. I urge you to reverse course on these dangerous and dirty fossil fuel projects.
    These pipelines are not in our national interest and I, along with millions of others, will fight you every step of the way if your administration moves forward with them.” Idea from NRDC for postcard20170124_153543



A Year of Water Action!

Love our lakes, rivers and streams. Take care of them!
Love our lakes, rivers and streams. Take care of them!

My not so funny joke for Water Wednesday. A conversation I had this past week!

Friend: I hear Donald Trump has invested lots of money in bottle water.

Me: Why would he do that?

Friend: He wants to get rid of all regulation to protect our drinking water.

In contrast, Minnesota Governor Dayton has called for a Year of Water Action. He encourages all Minnesotans to take a role in protecting our state’s most precious resource for future generations.  Read more about it here.

What are you doing to protect our water resources? Reduce chemicals, sweep sidewalks and streets, install rain gardens, plant deep-rooted plants, stop building campfires, recycle and compost, clean off boats and equipment, What else?
