Uncharted waters indeed! Having to explain what 'golden showers' are to our parents. Hmm

Inauguration Day

Quote:
Over Christmas I went to see J.K.Rowling’s new film ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’. In it, one character says “my philosophy is that worrying means suffering twice”. I’m not prepared to give Trump and his cronies the satisfaction of assuming that it will all work out as he assumes it will. I refuse to go along with the tone prevalent in much of the progressive writing I read which assumes that catastrophe, apocalypse even, is inevitable. Rather, I think this might be the making of us.

What has happened to Ezekiel?

I hope that the Gestapo in New York, or elsewhere, haven't gotten him.

Don't despair, use that energy to fight back. I was around in the 60's and learned not to give in

Just look at it as entertainment: Maybe we should start a pool. Name the week that Trump gets impeached, assassinated, resigns, or is Sectioned 8 out by Pence et al. I take week 24.
