Post Script Part Two

From a dear friend, another affirmation of the nobility of spirit upon which the United States is founded:

America’s  ... always been great… and who knows it better than a young naturalized Muslim woman … who could teach Trump and his minions a lesson or two ...

Post Script

We've seen the eloquent statement from one of my former students.  Here's something similarly cogent, albeit not as lyrical, from a progressive colleague.

It's time to man the barricades. With the radical GOP fully in charge of all branches of government federally and in most states, and a crazy megalomaniac in the White House who owes them nothing but will give them whatever they want because he has no principles, the only useful opposition left to us is  ...  civil disobedience, general strikes, mass protests and marches. Flood the zone with opposition on all fronts.  ...  use every trick in the book to avoid paying any federal taxes ...  Why not? Trump did it and called anyone paying taxes a sucker.

Signing Off

I'm shutting down Thoughts4Change.  Tuesday's election results have left me in a state of shock.  I'll be back with another blog on a topic at least slightly different than politics.  But WTF, people?!?  Did you seriously buy into what The Donald was selling?  Do you really think that racism, misogyny, and economic elitism will help America move forward?

In response to that, I want to leave you with a statement regarding love of country and democracy that none of the Trumpies could hope ever to match.

One of the happiest days of my life was when I became an American.  Tolerance,religious freedom, equality to all people. I am not giving up. Our values as Americans are bigger than one election.  Help us God 

That's from one of my former students, a young Muslim woman originally from Dhaka in Bangladesh.  IMHO, she's a far better American than most on the right.

To the Bitter End

Cokie Roberts suggests only birth control can turn Latino votes to the Republicans.  The Trumpies kick a child with cerebral palsy out of one of their rallies.

Classy to the bitter end ... not ...

Lots of Scrolling

... is required to navigate this list of all the people, places, and things The Donald has insulted via Twitter.

The FBI Is Trumpland

At least, that's how a current FBI agent described it, and the anti-Clinton leaks produced.

Not encouraging at all ...

Hey, Chicago ...

Yesterday, the Chicago Cubs became only the fourth team in major league baseball  to take a World Series to 7 games, after being down 3 games to 1.

Who was the last team to accomplish that, and when?
