POTUS Trump Thread

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

i don't want to get in the way of people simply venting, which is necessary for folks to make it through this nightmarish stuff day to day and this thread can be a good place for it, but i would still like to submit that seriously thinking of emigrating or whatever won't help any of the people most vulnerable to the Trump admin (including immigrants & asylees), and it reads like abandoning them to the wolves. i acknowledge that's perhaps a little too judgey and scolding, as everyone has their own needs, but that's my gut reaction to seeing it. i hope you can just stick around and think a bit more long term. there really are people fighting this stuff every day, it's not always successful but there are wins, and i'd advise seeking out these people/groups/orgs and supporting them however you can. be proactive in the ways you can be proactive. if you are already, ignore this whole post. i dunno, i guess i'm just venting too.

Haven't posted in here in a while but just wanted to vent about how furious and frustrated and helpless I feel waking up to this nightmare reality every day and being surrounded by family and co-workers and people who voted for this asshole and are perfectly fine with everything and contradict anyone who says otherwise. I haven't had a confrontation with anyone in person in a while but last night I had a dream I got into a shouting match with family members on my mom's side over ICE detainees and it played out exactly how it would have irl and it made me realize why I avoid family for the most part.

Stay strong and as active as possible Rhodes. And chase down some pleasurable hobbies! I honestly have no other advice that doesn't ring shallow, because this does indeed suck.

I grabbed a second job after work in a warehouse moving freight from 6-10 5 nights a week. Working from 7am-10pm has really allowed me to ignore cable news for the most part. so now I just hate my life because of all the fucking work I have to do to survive, like a normal person.

i doubt i’d leave as a political protest but it often occurs to me that i’d like to liva abroad and for us (no mortgage, dependents, consumer debt) its a really good time to do it and frankly i work in nonprofit ostensibly on helping organize communities to improve public health and safety, there are few places i could go and not be of service and if i went somewhere cheap i could increase my charitable giving.

all of that is to say i think you can/should live where you want and leave the US if you want.

but: what you do for work, how you influence your workplace and community and how humbly you can live and how much you can volunteer and donate to orgs that are resisting probly matters a lot more.
admittedly the metal thread has recently taken a hit

is it just me or are these last pages extremely dark

my dad voted for trump. i had managed to convince my mom who usually votes R to vote for Hillary. recently, when i mentioned to him about some of the bullshit that's been happening and why, he actually told me that he made a mistake and was wrong. incredible moment, considering my dad has been a hardcore R, Rush Limbaugh/Michael Savage listening, fox news watching person for so long.

to those that have parents that are totally gone for Trump, idk if this makes any sense, but, you have my sincere hope that people can have moments where they come around and realize things, as difficult and rare as moments like that can be.

Listening to the coverage of this is infuriating, because it hammers home Republican's mastery of pushing the narrative. The e-mail investigation is treated as legitimate - ignoring that it was the result of Republican's relentless hammering of the issue and not due to any real security threat. The FBI/Justice departments decisions seen in the light of neutralizing the batshit republican narratives make sense, but that's been lost over the past 2 years and now nobody is being reminded that this is all of their damn fault.
