My peeps and I have gone dark, we are sending fewer and fewer articles and text messages.

We have beaten the horse every which way and feel the shadow of dementia creeping up because we keep repeating ourselves.

"Ain't it awful" ain't cutting it.

We hound each other to remain steadfast in calling and texting and writing to criminal GOP Senators, but that is an activity that requires blind faith that the standard boiler plate response will be canned for a
"dear Ninga, you are right, I will vote to open the government, thank you, Senator Portman, Ohio"

2 stabs in the heart from which it is taking enormous mental strength to overcome are the
1. the Gov shut down 2. The GOP voting to lift scantins of the Russian criminal Derapaska.

These stabs, added to the immigrant children stabs, along with the Kavanaugh and Gorsuch stabs, have left scars.

The only thing that catches my attention these days is the Tommy John men's' underware commercial that streams to my ears via radio MSNBC. Several times a day I smile.

That's it.
The End of the story.
Please don't yell at me and tell me to get a grip. While I have applauded the House returning to the Dems, and have faith in many of the new fresh faces...our Constitutional Crisis is all consuming.

5. Don't get discouraged. Go local. Local issues affect you more closely anyway.

Go to your local Democratic HQ or local food bank and volunteer. They'll appreciate your help and you'll make a big difference.

Watching or listening to news 24/7 is too much. They are trying to upset you and keep you tuned in so you watch more ads. Tune out.

6. That's what we are doing. We are known in our communities as activists. It does however not

earase the pall hanging over our entire country......we are in a Constitutional Crisis with absolutely no end in sight, no clue how this will be resolved, if ever.

To assert we know how this will turn out is a fools errand. The GOP lifting scantions on companies Derapaska has interest in is the latest "in your face" "out in the open" support for Russians/Russia that has been met with *crickets* - no stop the presses, no collective outrage.
