To cheer us up.
Today there's a post that the NYT has 200,000 more digital subscriptions since Nov 8.
I heard that the ACLU has raised some hundreds of thousands of dollars in that same time.
I also think I heard something about the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Do you have a fact or a link? Please share.
Here's a suggestion to the media. Please submit ideas of your own.
What if you refused to move on from this one tweet for several weeks? What if the media did that for every dangerous claim made by this (elected) administration, baseless or otherwise? Dont accuse him of lying. Instead, force him to use his platform to either back it up or back down. Dont try to shoot him; give him a rope to hang himself with
... around for forums that are not so obsessed with Trump and found this. Not that he doesn't deserve our attention, but watching people spend energy on citing his every stupidity is making me tired. I see this isn't a very active forum, but I've subscribed here so I can see when stuff pops up.
We need to come out fighting hard against Trump and all he stands for. But we need to direct that energy at the enemy. It's a little early to start saying fellow Dems are going along to get along. Getting along is not the goal. Doing what's best for the country is the goal. Let's not put on McConnell style blinders!
.... between the President's business dealings and his duties as President? Or is it all just convention?
Got this in an e-mail from our town Democratic committee. They also said they've gotten a lot of calls from new people. I'm one of them. Although I've always responded to calls for canvassing, etc, I wasn't on a mailing list for plain old meetings.
... among a very large number of pregressive groups that took place either the night of the election or the next day or night? I thought I read about it on DU. Can't think of where else. But searches even confined to a day keep timing out?
I wondered if there's a chance for unprecedented unity in fighting the neo-Nazi takeover.
In particular I wondered if the very early statments by Sanders and Warren promising to "work with Trump IF..." signaled come coordination.
No talk, just light piano music. Two bearded clerics, one Muslim, one Catholic are visiting (maybe playing a game, maybe just talking). When the Muslim leaves you see each of them clicking on an Amazon Prime icon on their smart phones. Next you see packages being delivered to their homes. Each has received a gift a knee pads from the other. Useful for kneeling as shown in the closing scenes.
I know it's not changing structures, but we sure do need some communal rooting for true American values wherever we can get it.
