Robert Reich's First 100 Day Resistance Plan

Worth a read. A few of my favorites:
1. Get Democrats in the Congress and across the country to pledge to oppose Trump’s agenda. Prolong the process of approving choices, draw out hearings, stand up as sanctuary cities and states. Take a stand. Call your senator and your representative (phone calls are always better than writing).
We should keep in mind that it would help to have a majority on some things, so we should make a point of calling Republicans that might be a bit squishy, as well (there aren't many).

 7. Website containing up-to-date daily bulletins on what actions people are planning around the country, and where, so others can join in. Techies, get organized.
Hey DNC? Get on this.

 9. Lawsuits: Our version of “Drill, baby, drill” is “Sue, baby, sue.” Throw sand in the gears. Lawyers, get organized.
Everything we can do on the legal front helps. Merrick Garland, anyone?

Some of the rest are unlikely to work, but that's OK. We need all the good pushes we can get. Please, Dr. Reich, less of the Democratic purity stuff (we really are as close to a liberal ideal for the party as we've been since at least 1972), and more of what we, as a party, as well as any defectors who have the scales lifted from their eyes, can do together.
