Not really a light link love, but shorter than usual for various reasons.
I’m not sure where/how to report our political action as time goes on, but, like my friend who IM’d me yesterday said, I do not want to get complacent or too dispirited and stop. This needs to keep going until I can, until we all can, trust our government officials to make decisions again. Until then I MUST stay active and pay attention. This past week was full of calling senators and congress people about trump’s racist cabinet picks, his conflicts of interest, and the other things mentioned in the previous days posts. I also got on the mailing list for our local democratic party even though they haven’t done anything. I think we’re still active enough as a nation that there will be plenty more to do in the coming weeks without me planning it out now. But eventually I will get organized and report back to the Grumpy Nation with posts about what I’m doing and why. Please keep telling us what you’re doing as well. It’s really scary when you talk to a former member of W’s administration and he tells you that his biggest fear going forward is the same as your biggest fear (and also explains how your second biggest fear can lead to the first). We must stay vigilant.
