The Time Is Now!

This is exactly what must happen,* over and over again, every time, at every venue and every event where we are confronted with the evil that The Trump Corporation is very purposely and methodically reassembling to our collective detriment. Trump is now busily dredging up and reanimating the hatred, narrow mindedness and ignorance of centuries past that should have died a long overdue death well before this one. He has already recruited a pantheon of the most vilified haters, the most racist backward thinkers that were long left ridiculed and discredited, only to now rise again solely to wreak havoc and suffering upon mankind anew. That is not hyperbole- that is what this hand selected elite excel at: the renewed oppression of vast swaths of people, the accelerated degradation of our life giving resources, a revitalized commitment to the suppression of all things progressive, enlightened and humane...

And that is why we must resist, challenge and confront at every opportunity available. We must not let apathy allow this hatred and ignorance to be further normalized into our everyday lives. We have come too far, struggled too hard, endured too much to go back to a society that: mocks our less fortunate, belittles and marginalizes those of different colors and faiths, and seeks to blame and humiliate those already disempowered for their own profit and self aggrandizement. This cartel must be stopped not with equal amounts of hatred and self righteousness, but with an avid resistance that both enlightens and reestablishes our shared humanity. Our spontaneous protests (and now Hamilton) are just such a start- and we must not, cannot let up until the job is done.      * The video is well worth embiggening and listening to...

Ummm... thanks- but that sounds more like the title I aspire to be (on a good day).

Do like to think I take a decent shot every once in a while though.

But, yes, in the meantime- we must keep keeping on...
