Send a Message to President Trump

Diana Chapman Walsh was president of Wellesley College 8 years ago. She recently emailed her former colleagues the following idea:

Received this today. Creative idea … easy and worth a try.

Listen Up! The Republicans need to get the message from the majority of Americans that we value and need the benefits of Obamacare. Here’s how we do that.

[The week of January 23rd], everyone who feels that way (our numbers are legion) sends a note to Donald Trump with a simple message:

“Don’t make America sick again. Improve Obamacare. Don’t repeal it.”

One envelope for every ACA supporter in your household…even if they are under 18 years old.  Just that simple message. Put it in an envelope, and put a stamp on it.

Mail it to:
Pres. Donald Trump
1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW,
Washington, DC 20500

Can you imagine the picture of 53 MILLION letters arriving at the White House? It will be a mountain. That image might help deter the Republicans from killing the most substantial improvement to American healthcare since the discovery of Penicillin.

Do it today! Drop it into a mailbox near you [today].

Please send this email to 20 (or more) of your friends, neighbors and fellow Americans. Ask them to do the same.

This also helps out the US Postal Service, with about $20 Million of stamp sales.

Don’t send emails to Trump…they don’t photograph well.

This is about images, since words and ideas are falling on deaf ears.

  1. I’m sure you are aware of the Sanctuary situation of Chicago created specifically by Obama and his weasel boy, Mayor Emanuel. I would look at the voting practice in and of Chicago. Obama and Hillary were focusing on cities like Chicago, that were allowed to become overrun with Mexicans under Obamas orders to border patrol agents, to keep Obamas idiotic plan alive of turning America over to foreign entities which hate our values.
    They turned Chicago into a ghetto dump where it is unsafe to live and 90% of the wet backs cannot speak English.

    1. Kenneth, your comments are a good example of emotional propaganda driven by what I would guess is a preexisting attitude and very little accurate information. Phrases such as “overrun with Mexicans” and “turning America over to foreign entities which hate our values” are dead giveaways.

      Obama actually tried to oppose the Sanctuary City programs’ refusal to cooperate with ICE agents. The “Secure Communities” program, designed by George W. Bush, insisted that local law enforcement had to cooperate with ICE, but the courts declared city cooperation voluntary rather than mandatory. Obama was enforcing the federal program until forced to drop it. Obama actually deported a record number of undocumented immigrants. Hardly a record consistent with your comment.

  2. need an executive order eliminating the 29 work hour limit on part time workers. it should be no limit. this would stop the employers of having to declare these employees full time. Some of us want to be part timers

  3. President trump, you should put a sofware import tax or ban aswell. India makes 200 Billions dollars of Software revenues from US alone. That means we loose 200 Billion USD to India alone. Then we loose a bunch to other countries who also make a lot of money due to software export in US. If that money is saved to hire US Citizens it would have a great effect on US economy. Also India itself under the PM Modi imposes Software import duties even when one individual in India buys software from US firm, this is anti competitive to US companies selling software to the rest of the world. We need a tit for tat strategy for our companies. We should impose heavy tax on companies from other countries who try to sell goods to us, since they do the same for our companies and make it non-competitive. Please impose a heavy software and services import tax so that our smaller software companies and services dont suffer. Also put a online ecommerce tax as other countries like India is doing for our products which makes it difficult for our companies to compete with theirs. The same policies should apply to all countries who do it to us. Tit for Tat is the best policy, US has gotten looted for too long now. its been more than 40 yrs now since these policies are stealing from US.

  4. If Trump really wants to fix the USA he should reverse every executive order made by every president after President Reagan, who was the only honest President the USA ever had.That action would put the USA back into the best years we have had in
    the last 30 plus years. If President Trump actually does what he promised in his Victory Speech he could be as good as President Reagan, and, if he adds to that the promises he made in his Inaugural Speech Trump could be the greatest President the USA ever had!

    However, someone should take his Tweet toy away from him because that
    is going to destroy him!

    Please tell President Trump what I wrote because this is really for him personally!

    Another submarine story most people do not know about is the US allowed Japan to “steal” plans the US had so Japan could build a fleet of submarines. When US troops took over Japan they found many of those submarines in many production stages. However, those submarines were designed with a special feature! As soon as they rolled off of the assembly line they rolled over and sank! Ha, Ha, Ha! So much for stealing another countries “secrets”! Ha, Ha, Ha, again!

  5. I can see why you might compare President Trump to President Reagan. They do have much in common. It’s just not the distorted accolades that you dreamed up.

    Reagan started his presidential campaign in Mississippi among throngs of Confederate flags. He played to his right-wing audience by advocating states rights and attacking Washington, Democrats, big government, and welfare. He appealed to racists and other bigots with racial code words, subtle messages and promises to roll the clock back to the pre-civil rights days when blacks, minorities and women knew their place. He promised to reinstate law and order, clamp down on “permissiveness” and restore prosperity. He lied about “welfare queens” to get elected.
    He refused to meet with the Congressional Black Caucus, attempted to reduce the power of the Civil Rights Commission over employment discrimination cases, and opposed the extension of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

    Reagan did restore prosperity for the wealthy through “supply-side” or “voodoo” economics and by slashing federal support for education and training, social services, public works, civilian research and development, federal grants for poor students, and survivor benefits for families of the disabled . He created the worst debt at the time in US history, nearly tripling during his tenure. His zeal for deregulation helped create the savings and loan debacle, which cost taxpayers billions of dollars. Wage inequality began to grow for the first time since the 1920s. The United States moved from being the world’s largest international creditor to the world’s largest debtor nation.

    Many senior Reagan officials were indicted or convicted of various offenses. Trump is off to a mush faster start to surpass Reagan in that regard.

    Reagan’s international accomplishments include the ludicrous Star Wars’ missile defense proposal, the farcical invasion of Grenada, the devastating attack on Marines in Lebanon, and a costly military buildup that some have said kept us closer to nuclear war than at any time since the Cuban Missile Crisis. His greatest debacle was the shameful, and probably impeachable, Iran-Contra scheme.

    Reagan’s title as the “Teflon” president was accurate but not a compliment. Trump’s ability to get away with atrocious behavior and outrageous claims outdoes even Reagan. In contrast to your assertion that Trump could be “the greatest president the USA ever had,” I think he is already the most emotionally dysfunctional, dangerous President the USA has ever had. The main difference between Trump and Reagan is that Trump has almost none of Reagan’s charm, actor’s ability to stay with a script, or phoney sincerity. But they do have much in common.

    I have no idea what your final submarine story has to do with this topic. I did find that Japan purchased submarines from the US in 1904, and as WWII started had “one of the world’s most varied and powerful submarine fleets,” according to Wikipedia. Perhaps your information on Japanese submarines is as inaccurate as your information on Reagan.

    1. Annaiza Gerwald,
      First, I don’t understand what your comment has to do with the original topic of the Affordable Care Act. I’m puzzled by why you posted here at all.

      Second, I’m guessing that you are not a native American or English is not your first language. I say that because you stated that others say you are not an American and your writing skills are terrible. Your comment has numerous errors in spelling, grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and word usage. You don’t say what field your PhD is in, but I’m surprised you could have written a dissertation that was accepted with such poor quality writing. The dissertation I wrote for my doctorate would never have gotten past my doctoral committee with this quality of writing. Perhaps your inability to get a job is more related to your skills than to immigrant competition and unfair federal courts. By the way, unemployment in America is the lowest it’s been in at least ten years.

      There is certainly nothing wrong with coming to America as an immigrant, having immigrant parents or having to learn English as a second language. If none of that is true for you, I’m really baffled by your bad writing. If some of it is true for you, I’m baffled by your critical comments concerning your “blessed” country and your paranoid attitude and lack of personal insight.

      Obviously, I could be completely wrong about you since I don’t know you. But your comment was not convincing or even relevant.

      1. bscritic,
        I agree with you about Annaiza Gerwald’s posting having nothing to do with the subject matter. However, I am relatively sure he may have been passed along and given degrees he may not have actually earned. I hear and see many people with, supposedly, advanced degrees both in the main stream media and in person speaking incorrectly every day. I cannot believe that these people finished grammar school let alone attended college, and yet they have. When I was in school I was subjected to severe scrutiny and was not given any consideration of coming from a background of being disadvantaged, possibly suffering from malnutrition at some point during my childhood, and was given no credit for the first person in my family to attend college, many Blacks/Hispanics were. Why? Because I am White and by the time I got to college I was an older student that had worked to raise my two children, alone, with no help from welfare (therefore, not qualifying for any help) before being able to afford college. I was also remarried and a combination of my skin color and last name meant to the liberal system of education that I lived a life of privilege so I was not entitled to any “special” treatment, which was fine by me; however, this also meant that I would be subjected to higher standards, which was also ok by me. Seeing so many people that did not speak/write well became too much to take at some point so I did not go for an advanced degree. I knew that one day I would find myself having to work among people who did not truly earn their degrees. This would not make me happy. Basically, I had already raised my family, without the benefit of a decent salary, no longer needed the extra money. Plus the aggravation and abuse wasn’t worth it. Yes, all the people that have not earned their degrees are now out there and, unfortunately, too many are of undesired nationalities. By the way, I am a White female of Hispanic decent.

  8. I don’t know if this is the right place but here goes. I have lived in and around Saint Joseph Mo for 73yrs of my 77yrs. I spent 4yrs in the USAF. When my departed wife and bought this land and built our last home there were 2 families here but now there are 5 of us. We are County RD 3862 but must travel to County Rd 386 for our mail. I have move my box closer to my home but have been told they will not deliver my mail or my neighbors either. We all pay taxes to the county, State and federal government. As you are my man in DC I am asking for help. You have been and are my go to guy. The USPS is not what it used to be and probably will never be. I have made arrangements with my creditors threw my bank and I will no longer need the services of USPS but would like to help my neighbors. Thank you and God bless you and yours.

    1. Robert, your comment is confusing to me. I am not your “man in DC.” I’m not in DC. I’m not your representative or senator. I can do nothing about your mail delivery. Find out who represents you and write to that person.
