We're standing in the middle of Jackson on the bridge over the train trax. We can't even get near the march. So many people on this gorgeous day!

The freewheeling panic and dread that we're all feeling is directly related to the fear that we're going to be "trapped behind the lines" when President Twitter Troll and the RepubliKKKans flip from being neo-Nazis to just regular murder-them-all Nazis.

I mean, these are people with no conscience, no morals, and no value of human life. Just look into Paul Ryan's or Mike Pence's soul-less, dead, fish eyes. They don't feel human emotions other than greed, fear, and hate.

Those coal industry jobs aren't coming back, but you can bet your ass the Trumpists will be climbing all over themselves to sign up for the soon-to-be booming concentration camp guard industry.

@ 8, My fave topical quote from a gal who moved to Toronto after CaliguBush's 2004 reelection: "I'm so glad I got out of that crazy fucking country!" So true.

People who suggest emigrating to Escape From the US haven't thought through what a huge financial, emotional, and psychological shock it would be to move to another country and look for work -- especially if you have children.

I studied abroad in several countries, and it was incredibly challenging to land in a new place knowing no one and have to figure out how to succeed in a very short time period. I have so much respect for people who've had the courage to do that.

Most of us can't afford leave anyway, so we've no choice but to stay and remain defiant, both for ourselves and to support others.

There’s no point in watching.

Even the truth is a lie when it comes from him.

We elected our first female president by 3 million ballots with the popular vote.

Instead, the (s)Electoral College is installing our first fascist.
