Resistance, American Style

As America prepares for the inauguration of a president many fear may be a fascist in waiting, those who oppose him are dragging their feet or indulging themselves in empty gestures like a protest march specifically designed not to disrupt. This probably won’t end well.

  • It’s great to gather in the great public venues to make your presence known en masse, but the real resistance begins in living rooms, then onto the side streets and alleys before the big march, and then in reverse back to the living rooms.

    The Democrats will only lead people to vote for Democratic Party after being repulsed by the style of Republicans only to get the same bill of goods repackaged in the Democratic Party style.

    “What do we mean by the Revolution? The war? That was no part of the revolution; it was only an effect and consequence of it. The revolution was in the minds of the people, and this was effected from 1760 – 1775, in the course of fifteen years, before a drop of blood was shed at Lexington.”โ€” John Adams to Jefferson, 1815

    Ted,
    I love it. You perfectly encapsulate the effete bubble so many of the anti-Trump crowd lives in. “B-b-but, we had the best letters to the editor! How can Trump have won! And we kept ignoring all of Hillary’s faults, how could she have failed to win? Oh, wait. I reverse myself. She won more votes, which is not how you win, but aughta be. This time at least!”

  • In a few short days, we will inaugurate the least qualified president we’ve ever had. A man who thinks that an “intelligence briefing” is some sort of insult to his intelligence. One who makes decisions without facts and reacts like a spoiled five-year-old whenever anyone questions his own assessment of his own magnificent awesomeness. A man whose tweets make Charlie Sheen’s sound sane. A man who’s made billions with the long con will play out his biggest con yet. As the Trump Chumps cheer on Friday, the rest of the world will be laughing their asses off.

    If there was a single soul left on Earth who harbored any doubts as to the collective intelligence of the American electorate, those doubts have now been laid to rest.

    • Let me assure you, as a resident of Mexico with relatives in Germany, the “rest of the world” is not laughing. ๐Ÿ™

      • Oh, I don’t doubt you’re right, derlehrer. But my way sounds happier. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Ever since I’ve become politically aware, I’ve wondered what the world would think of us today if we didn’t turn 180 degrees every four years.
