There's a list of Fox News advertisers in this article and putting pressure on them has been very effective in getting them to drop Fox.

Fox’s revenues don't solely come from advertisers. They also come from fees paid by cable company subscribers (in other words, you & me), even if those subscribers *never* watch Fox.

Cable subscribers who want to deprive Fox of the money it uses to poison our discourse & democracy can check out unfoxmycablebox.com
to learn how. It’s going to take pressure on cable companies and advertisers.

Perspective | Fox News is a hazard to our democracy. It’s time to take the fight to the Murdochs. Here’s how.

Here's something to do that's interesting/scary.

Check to see how your state's doing on Infrastructure. Are the roads and bridges you drive over every day safe? How about your water system?

Joe Biden wants to spend billions of $$ on infrastructure, but McConnell and the GOP are against it. Investing in infrastructure does actually pay for itself and It's needed and overdue.

Tell your Senators to support Biden's infrastructure plan. Call 202-224-3121 and you'll be connected to both.

Unless you're willing to risk having your name on a monument to bridge collapse victims or be without clean water. I'm not.

I don't share many petitions but this one is really important.

The American Postal Workers Union is looking for signatures for this petition to President Biden asking him to quickly fill the vacancies on the USPS Board of Governors with progressive, capable people.

If the three empty spots are filled correctly, Republicans will be in the minority and Louis DeJoy, the Postmaster General who has caused so many problems for us and postal workers, will be depowered.

Give it a sign, please. 🖋

@TonyStark Hi, Spud! Bridie is helping out with wardrobe selection. Will it be a black t-shirt or a pastel black t-shirt? She’s mostly floof, but she has aspirations of becoming a stylist for humans.

@jlio I just saw you giving the finger to "Ron" and thought Ron Johnson was going to be the worst, but there are two Rons who try to outdo each other for that title. @TonyStark

If Biden isn't the legitimate President, then I guess Greene, Gosar, Gaetz, Gohmert, Boebert & Friends weren't legitimately elected either. I mean, they were all on the same ballot.
Was only the Presidential box on the ballot made out of bamboo?
I guess they should all step down until this whole thing is figured out.

@MJ
It's going to be on Democrats to do the heavy lifting on infrastructure, just as they've had to to do on every other thing that's actually helped everyday people.

Too bad Republicans just like to scream about things rather than fix them. Four years of Trump and ZERO infrastructure despite so many many Infrastructure Weeks tells you all you need to know about the Republican desire to make things better in this country -- big promises and no action.
