1. Honest question. What would that do?


Would it keep Kavanaugh from being on the court?

No.

Would it harm Trump in any way?

No.

Would it cause millions people striking to lose pay, if not their jobs, and not be able to pay their bills?

Yes.



In order for a strategy to be effective, it has to help achieve the goal. How does a national strike help anything?

3. Yes. I suggest we organize a media boycott in conjunction with...

...real life organizing for the mid terms. Turn off the news and tamp down on the social media feeds as a protective measure against the online manipulations. Don't follow the investigation and the day to day. Simply vote, and get out the vote for the next four weeks.

I like the idea of a strike, but I think boycotts and other forms of economic activism will be more effective than most imagine.

Turn the propaganda off!
