The Emperor’s New Underwear

9e87a5abf9b2ae234aad6c59333d4b1b  I hate to pour more oil on the burning fire of fear – the impending Trump presidency – but to have a united government that is dedicated to destroying the few laws President Barack Obama managed to pass – Dodd-Frank, Obamacare – is worse than having had the whole GOP for Trump would have been.
Put negatively, all the non-GOP Trump supporters get to quibble — “he’s not my president” . . . “maybe he’s not going to be that bad” . . . or “look, every time he’s good, he’s great.”
It’s time for us to hit the streets, and work within the confines of the American political system. Don’t burn, don’t bully. Rally and participate – effectively, quietly, without violence or being triggered into spontaneous violence by agents provocateurs. After all the uber wealthy on Manhattan’s Upper East Side have a underwear store (lingerie, they call it, thinking it’s better to resist in French?!!!).
P.S. iRevoltblog (on wordpress, connected to https:// or https://iRevoltblog) will be up and running sometime this January, 2017 — before the Inauguration.
