Monday Musings

“Orthodoxy means not thinking–not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.”

This must be why so many Drumpf supporters love him.  They don't have to think anymore.  They don't have to "stress."  He will take care of everything.  They can indulge their infantile selves and self-sooth their cares away.  Big Daddy is watching out for them.  Have another high ball.

“The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power.”

Little do they understand that daddy doesn't give a damn about them. They fail to fathom that daddy used their tiny little minds to get to the pinnacle of power he so desperately craves.  He has deceived them all, and will forget them all in favor of his chosen few that will rule with him.  

Can this happen in the United States of America?  This is the ultimate test of our democracy.  The courts are already checking his powers.  Now Congress needs to stand up.  You know your representatives phone number, right?

Though heartened by the protests at U.S. airports, I am afraid this is what Steve Bannon is hoping for -- a protest that his puppets can infiltrate and incite acts of violence.  Then they send in the Gestapo.  Marshall Law.  Bob's your uncle.*  These are dangerous days.

Take good care my friends.  Feed your souls.  Pick your battles.  Love one another.  Don't let the muthafuckers stomp your spirit.

Fight the power.

Get on the Love Train.

* a lovely British saying, meaning, "And there you go" or something like that.
Quotes from George Orwell's "1984"


  1. OMG, these are hard times indeed! And all these blasts are coming right on top of one another.

    I'm totally not wasting my time trying to figure out where T supporters are coming from. Am spending LOTS of time trying to stay up to date with issues, and hounding the living heck out of my Senators and Representative about concerns and what they might do.

    One of my friends does policy work, and she has started a weekly newsletter. This week's is pretty good, and it addresses some of the overwhelmingness of it, and how to go about doing what we can do.


  2. We are definitely in for the fight of our lives here. I can't believe the Republican Congress can go along with this pathological tyrant in order to get rid of the New Deal, Medicare, the social safety net, and to give the very rich tax breaks. Seriously? That's how much they love our country and what it stands for? This is a defining moment for our country. Sadly, the Republicans are several steps ahead of us in terms of gerrymandering their way to victories. There's a lot of work to be done. And we're not gonna let those muthafuckers stomp our spirit!

    1. Hell yeah. And I'm reading there are movements afoot to roll back the district changes. Can't recall where I was reading it, but likely NYT.

  3. Scary times! Do something every day to resist.

    1. Even if it just means a day of radical self-care. Stay healthy for the revolution.
