About Me

One day at a time.

Excellent Twitter Post.

Dear whoever is listening, We are so tired. Tired of hearing you talk on and on about his crimes then doing almost nothing about it. We are tired of twitter platitudes that lack substance, heart, or a plan. We are tired of hearing the same thing on the news every night only to wake up the next day to some new insanity while we hear you utter the same hollow refrains. We are tired of the Blue Wave that has left merely a puddle under our shoes that quickly blends in with the shadows of the treachery that is the traitorous leadership of our democracy. We are tired of pundits and experts who repeat what we know only to learn that another day has passed into history with no action or recourse for our fears. We are tired of trying to explain to our daughters why no matter how hard we rage against the dying of the light, that we haven’t done enough to ensure the courts to be fair to them as they grow into adulthood and inherit this mess we’ve created. We are tired of hearing from those who believed him only to find two years later that they didn’t realize he was lying and oh my how he’s hurt me so now I actually care and want to take back my vote. We are tired of marching and protesting and petition signing and hearings and reports and all the rot of evidence you have before you that you won’t do anything productive with. We are tired of your whimpering and simpering and “we can’t do this because of his base” that leaves us hollow and heartbroken. We are tired of trying to explain why all of this is so damn dangerous and potentially irreversible while you beg for patience. We are tired of being polite and turning the other cheek and going high against racists and liars and thieves and power hungry zealots who just want us to know our place. We are tired of trying to do more with less at home, in school, at work and everywhere in our lives while you keep getting paid and have insurance and travel for free on our our dime. Did I mention we are tired? BUT DO NOT MISUNDERSTAND. We are tired, but we are not done. See, we are watching YOU. We are remembering your promises and your vows to protect us and to fight for us and to not go gently into that good night. We remember. We are going
to remember so much more of what you said you’d do but didn’t. What you promised but ignored. Our feet are sore. Our hearts are heavy. And we are wondering how much more we can handle and how many more mountains we can climb and how much longer we can stand and wait for you to do what we have been counting on you to do. We are tired. But we will fight on. And for every one of us who loses their way and cannot take another single step, five more of us will take their place. But you owe it to us, the tired, poor and huddled masses yearning to breathe free, to do your jobs. To protect our democracy and our Constitution. To hold the lawbreakers and cheats accountable. Now. Right now. No more obfuscating. No more placating. Do. Your. Jobs.

We the People.



Woman Mails 'Thoughts And Prayers' Check To Congressman

Source: Crooks & Liars

Dear Rep. Bergman,” she wrote. “Since you and your colleagues in Congress seem to feel that this is the solution to mass murder, please accept this contribution.”

With the short letter, which she posted on her Facebook page, she sent a check to the congressman with the popular refrain instead of a dollar amount.

"I did it because I'm hearing the same arguments after each and every time this happens," Malila explained to Newsweek on Friday. "Each and every news media person says contact your congressman, and Congress doesn't do anything."

This is a fantastic idea. If you still have a checkbook and a stamp to spare. If Congress members started seeing their re-election funds diminish because the check had Thoughts & Prayers in the denomination line it might get their attention.

Friendly Reminder.

The Ken Burns documentary about the Vietnam war starts tonight.
