3. My list

1) Covid
2) Economy
3) Repair international relations
4) Fix international trades and tariffs
5) Investigate and prosecute all those involved in destroying this country between 2016 and January 20, 2021

All five can run simultaneously and I have every confidence that President Joe will act super quickly.

8. major retraining in de-escalation, nonviolence, and community interaction

explore ways for some police to not even carry guns. i'm not saying none should have them, but i really don't think every police officer on the street should have one. works in england. i know it's different there, but still.

if giving someone a ticket for a broken tail light is so dangerous they need a gun, then maybe we should rethink the traffic stop, rather than bringing in lethal weaponry into the equation.

10. i would immediately consult with marketing/pr consultants

as to how to message, how to manage the media, how to coordinate with other democratic officials, etc.

not saying this should be done by law or executive order, but we need to get much smarter about how to compete with republicans on use of the media.

then again, some of this is just breaking up monopolies and limiting the concentration and influence of ultra-rich media owners....

13. Undo all the Executive Orders that rolled back environmental protections

Trump has set us back decades in terms of environmental law.

Also, anything he's done to ruin or privatize our National Parks, open wilderness preserves up to hunting, etc... Ridiculous projects like uranium mining in the Grand Canyon, Pebble Mine up in Alaska, pipelines that destroy Native American water supplies and sacred lands. Trump made it legal in Alaska to kill baby bears and wolf cubs in their dens! Didn't he also approve the use of cyanide bombs to kill wildlife in some state like Iowa or Montana? Those bombs are sometimes happened upon by children.

And it is a health issue too. Dirty air today is tomorrow's lung cancer, miscarriage or childhood asthma. Filthy water today is tomorrow's bladder and gallbladder cancer.

We need to restore the things that make our country beautiful.

14. Protect the caged children. I suggest that every child under the age of 18 who was

placed in a Trumpian cage be granted full U.S. citizenship, to protect them from future monsters that rise to power in the U.S.

23. Is that list taken from the one put together so happy and

aspirationally by our Democratic leaders in 2015-16 and grimly updated and revised through all the disasters since? We of course have a lot big bills already passed by the house and just waiting for a functioning senate to move ahead with.

25. Release the kids from the damn cages. Legislate the end of Citizen's United.

For me those and Covid measures are one, two and three. The first because I still can't believe my country has put kids in cages.

The second because it ends the primary ways that Republicans cheat to get elected, and it makes it more likely everything else on your list will get done because it makes it more likely that Democrats will get elected and stay in power.
