Latest Letters to Senators

19 Sep

Some days I write two or three letters to my senators and representative, first composing them in MS Word and then handwriting them in triplicate. So many issues.

Dear Senator,

Interior Secretary Zinke and Donald Dump wish to shrink the national parks, including in Oregon. That is so extremely not okay. This is desecration and, as usual, greed and sociopathy on their parts.

 

Dear Senator,

Donald Dump and his minions are attempting to pass Dumpcare, a.k.a. Uncare, a.k.a. Wealthcare again. We must keep fighting these attempts to take away our healthcare and Planned Parenthood, until Dump is no longer squatting in the White House. We need to protect Planned Parenthood and the ACA from this overtly misogynistic and classist narcissistic sociopath. Oh, yeah, and a neo-Nazi. Bernie Sanders has the right idea: we need universal healthcare—the real thing.

Victim-Blaming Politicians

8 Aug

I received my first packet from Hand-Written Revolution, and after filling out postcards based on the writing prompts (including writing to that psycho Betsy DeVos and that other psycho, Steve King–not the horror writer), I wrote the following letters to my Senators:

Dear Senator,

The Secretary of Miseducation, Betsy DeVos, is such an extreme victim-blaming misogynist that she has consulted with so-called “Men’s Rights activists” (translation: men’s “rights” to oppress and rape women) about pretending that victims of campus rape falsely accuse their rapists. She wouldn’t have been nominated by Donald Dump if she were a real woman rather than a power-tripping, stupid white male trapped in a woman’s body. On-campus rape is a very real and nightmarish epidemic, as is rape in general. Only a psychopath would pretend otherwise. Being the victim of rape is horrific enough without additionally being put on trial and insanely accused of making it up. In this country, one out of every six women has been raped, and so have some men.

If this monster were a competent Secretary of Education, she would be addressing the real problem: the epidemic of campus rape and rape culture. If she were competent, she would do all she can to prevent campus rape and help the victims, not make their life more hellish. This monster needs to either wake up or resign, as do all the incompetent monsters Donald Dump nominated.

And here’s the other letter:

Dear Senator,

Representative Steve King is more frightening than a horror novel. He wants to cut funding for food stamps and Planned Parenthood to cover the costs of an overtly racist and xenophobic wall between Dumplandia and Mexico. His claims are erroneous, sadistic, sociopathic, and idiotic, as is his using fatphobia against poor people.

Defunding food stamps and Planned Parenthood is class and gender warfare. Defunding them for the sake of building that wall is nothing less than class, gender, race, and international warfare.
