I have one word for Congressional Democrats

OBSTRUCT.

To the fullest extent of your authority. Use every tool, dirty trick, or maneuver at your disposal. Their destructive agenda must be stopped in its tracks. They showed you the way for the last 8 years. It's our turn.

That is all...

Chuck Schumer at the very least and if you have Democratic Party Senators call them.

I did. It does make a difference.

Tell them that this is not normal.
Tell them you will do everything that a citizen can do to oust them and their hateful agenda from the body politic.

hehe. i will. but it's like spitting in the wind.
i'm wearing a safety pin to let everyone threatened by the election of Trump know i do not share his world view, and from what i gather, some people think it's just to make myself feel better. no, it's to make others feel better too.
but calling burr or tillis? that's pretty much just to let off steam. no way it's going to make a single bit of difference to these scorched earth, die hard, republican before human, assholes.

A steady drip will often achieve more than a flood(I know the analogy is somewhat faulty, but it's the best I can do at the moment - sorry).

but I live in Houston so I'm calling all the local Democratic Congressmen and telling them to obstruct. That would be Sheila Jackson-Lee, Gene Green and Al Green.

And I intend to use it.

This election has proved that nice guys/gals finish last. Time to push back.

Hearing nothing but conciliatory nonsense from him so far.

I expect nothing less than full blown push back at this point.

during the banking crisis. She was our States Attorney General.

She is as tough as nails with an extremely thorough investigative staff.

One of the few bright spots from this election.

I'm also loving Tammy Duckworth.

14. My prediction
Wed Nov 16, 2016, 12:35 PM
Nov 2016

The majority of Democrats will vote for even more tax cuts for the ruling class. The Affordable Care Act will retain those things that appeal to most people, preexisting conditions and letting children stay on their parents' insurance until 26. Anything from the ACA that benefits the poor will be gone.


Peace
