Criticism of Trump's anti-transgender maneuver has been swift and vocal.
It's destined to fall on deaf ears, however.
It's ultimately going to come down to the business community to stop it because it's so bad for business.
--Christopher Gergen, Forward Impact
In my life I've been very, very fortunate. I've gotten to points at which I thought I would NEVER make it past without severe damage to my mind and body.
These points may seem trivial to some, but they're an examination of how hard you have to fight at least on a personal level, to make it past those events that you have considered nightmare scenarios. There will be a point afterwords, I promise.
Trump's immigration/deportation exercises are getting a lot of pushback from the liberal community. Frankly, I find myself wanting to feel that this issue is really important, but honestly, I just don't give much of a shit about it. All countries have borders and many of them are far more strict about controlling immigration than the US. I don't see anyone actually advocating open borders, which I could understand at least for the functional consistency of it.
Jobs? What jobs? Infrastructure? What infrastructure? Economy? What economy?
This might be a little rough because this
perturbs me pisses me off.
What the hell do Trump and his team "think" they're doing?
You might find this hard to believe if you spend all your time watching the news of even perusing the various political forums and soicla media platforms on the internet. There the desire the demonize and label people evil, bad or "deplorable is strong. It can, if you let it, cause you to lose all faith on the kindness of strangers.
So, the POTUS lies about all kinds of things, and is singularly ill-informed.
Okay, but what about the rest of them? The ones who seem to influence the debate about alternative facts.
True or False? The POTUS can count and gave to the nation and the world an accurate count of the revelers who came to the capital to celebrate his inauguration on January 20 last.
Just hours after the Trump administration's direct attack on transgender kids, protesters gathered outside the White House. It was probably the largest crowd of people supporting transgender rights ever! It was yuuuuuge! Larger than Trump's inauguration!
The amount of tanks and riot-gear-clad cops and National Guard, etc., is astonishing. There are still people in the camps, and there are concerns for their safety. Helicopters circling. Things are tense.
Please share and witness.
With the Trump administration plans being prepared to dismantle the Obama guidance created to protect the hundreds of thousands of transgender students nationwide, an Obama official has chosen to speak out.
In 2011, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Hillary Clinton fan, became head of the Democratic National Committee. In 2012, several months before Obama was even re-elected, Democratic pundits like Mark Shields and Bob Shrum were all over TV, saying that, if Hillary Clinton chose to run in 2016, no Democrat would even run against her. What an extraordinary claim, given that many politicians would dearly love to be President.
Every day it's the same old sh#t.
Trump attacks. Media attacks (with Deep State help). Rinse. Repeat.
Government and military authorities, working on behalf of an oil company, have issued an ultimatum to the water protectors at Standing Rock. Leave the Oceti Sakowin camp today (February 22) by 2pm Central Time or be forcibly removed (which probably means arrested). Chase IronEyes posted some evacuation resources yesterday:
For those who choose to not be arrested after 2pm 2.22.2017.
Buses will be at cannon ball bridge today at 8 am til feb 22, 2017@ 2 pm.

This essay is really good. Please read the whole thing. I believe the author has an accurate view of what's really going on.
The New York Times is currently engaged in one of its most ambitious projects: Removing a sitting president from office. In fact, Times columnist Nicolas Kristof even said as much in a recent article titled “How Can We Get Rid of Trump?”
Fake news. Diligent reporting. What's the difference?
The other night I was watching NBC news. They had a segment about how Putin was assembling a dossier of President Trump's strengths and weaknesses, and his psychological makeup. They even interviewed a Russian speaking man who said exactly what they wanted him to say.
Was this fake news? Was it real news?
As I noted in an earlier post, if you thought 2016 was weird, then 2017 is getting even weirder. Several things stand out about the past 12-14 months.
Austin film director Richard Linklater (Slacker, Dazed and Confused, Before Sunrise, The Newton Boys, Waking Life, Tape, School of Rock, Before Sunset, Bad News Bears (2005), Fast Food Nation, Before Midnight, Boyhood, Everybody Wants Some!!) has created a public service announcement opposing SB 6.
I saw this poll on CNN this morning. It asked people to select the best president out of the last four:
-George W. Bush
Can I get a WTF from the choir?
There's some rhetoric out there that I would like to see fade out of the so-called "Left." Life is politically pointless in America for the "Left" now, the main contests being between competing versions of the "Right," and we ought to ask why.
Technology is terrific. Technology is terrible. Or, in a mashup of Dickens with current norms of ahistorical, absolutist proclamations: these are the best of times; these are the worst of times. More accurately, as ecologists have long told us, there is no such thing as a free lunch. Technology is great, but we still gotta eat.
Utah civil rights attorney Samuel Wolf has responded to a SCOTUS brief filed in the case of Grimm v Gloucester County School District by the Mormon church with an op-ed in the Salt Lake City Tribune. In his editorial Wolfe denies the position that religious freedom is denied when transgender people are accorded rights.
Let me apologize in advance for quickly dropping this. I'm in the middle of a project, but I heard this series of interviews with Jimmy Dore and Nick Brana who is spearheading a Draft Bernie movement. I hope you might find one or more of interest too.
