Worthy Actions for 07-18-14

Sign the petition (CA only): Assembly Bill 32, which was passed in 2006, was a MASSIVE win for California and for reducing carbon emissions. The bill is set to create thousands of jobs, generate millions in revenue, and dramatically decrease emissions in California.  Unsurprisingly, Big Oil is now trying to use their deep pockets to sway politicians and the public with their mis-information campaign. And it’s working. Big Oil has already influenced 16 Democrats to join their side in trying to GUT AB 32.

Ready for some sarcasm: Are you sick of highly-paid teachers?  Let’s give them $3.00 an hour and only the hours they worked; not any of that silly planning time, or any time they spend before or after school. . . .Oops that didn’t work out so good!

A MUST listen: Elizabeth Warren gives a fantastic speech in a short video on the “Hobby Lobby” supreme court decision and the corporate influence that allowed or rather caused it to happen.
