posted by gyma I'm thinking this will likely be an ongoing type of post in the new and improved Trump Administration -- a daily, horror shitshow type of post. All those economically disadvantaged folks who thought Trump was on their... Continue reading

Redistricting is done on the state level, not the congressional level. Thanks for the clarification. We have lots of work to do so I'm not one for sitting back and giving Trump and his Republican minions a chance.

We have to take back congress in 2020 so we control redistricting. Otherwise we'll be in for another very long and painful 10 years. Oliver Willis has started a Resistance FB page and Robert Reich is also working on putting together a resistance movement. I'm behind both of them and hope I can make a small contribution. We have to put lots of pressure on pricks like Ryan and McConnell who somehow believe Trump won a mandate, but Obama didn't. Assholes

I'm going to start working on Spork -- I think once he's over the shock and sees what a mess we're in, he'll have to blow off some steam and this is the perfect avenue for that. I was also ready to throw in the towel earlier in the week but now I'm mad and fired up. We have a ton of work to do over the next 4 years and I want to be a part of it. Not sure how I'm going to do it since I live in a fairly small town, but I'm determined to find a way.
