Outside Trump's Bubble, Resistance Looms
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The gaslight that failed. Our fake president's inaugural speech on January 20 was a one-man orgy of gaslighting. Trump spoke of restoring American greatness while painting an absurd caricature of "American carnage." He crowed about "the people" after losing the popular vote. He spoke of unity while spewing insults. He spoke of "politicians who are all talk and no action" despite his own refusal to stop boasting and feuding and focus on his job. He cried "America first" while happily serving as a Russian asset. He decried the export of American jobs despite the "Made in China" labels on his own clothing line. He decried the state of education after naming a cabinet secretary opposed to public education. He decried dilapidated infrastructure that Republican obstruction made worse. He lied about our military being weak and our borders being undefended. He rhapsodized a calamitous and hypocritical neo-isolationism. He is the fox rebuilding the henhouse. On Januar...

Women's March in DC
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The women's march and the inauguration were, in a way, concurrent symbols of what is great about America. First, there was the peaceful transfer of power, and the celebration of this country's free and fair elections. Then, there were those who were unhappy with the results of that election, letting their voices be heard on issues that are important to them. What I do worry about are some of the more extremist elements of either side. Many of the protesters greatly dislike our new President and his supporters and that is their right. But those who held up signs comparing him to a Nazi, or made speeches claiming they wanted to "bomb" the White House are not only wrong, they are completely defeating any sympathy non-marchers might have for their cause. Making incest jokes about the President and his daughter isn't helpful, either, and certainly doesn't convey a message of love. And just so nobody accuses me of being one-sided, anybody who engages in similar behavior on the r...
