I may have taken the following quote out of context, but it sums things up for me today:
“unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed,” ~John F. Kennedy, inaugural address.
Supporters and protesters have intersected in the streets of Washington D.C. today as the most unpopular incoming president in at least four decades is sworn in. I will not watch the inauguration, nor will I mention Article I section 9, clause 8-The Emmoents Clause of the constitution, or Hamilton’s Federalist Paper #68 of the constitution, nor will I mention the horrifying infestation of grizzlies in American schools. I do wonder how the the celebrations taking place in Russia will compare to those in the U.S.The answer to the question we’ve all had has been answered. What shade of orange would the Donald sport today? Fluorescent burnt umber…meh.
“One thing life taught ye was how stupid it was to worry about things ye didnay know for sure, things that might no even happen, nay point in worrying about them,” ~James Kelman, Scottish writer
My child who goes to school in New York attended the Michael Moore rally last night. The list of speakers was impressive.
Two of the best signs in the crowd: “Nyet My President!” and “Not Mein Furher!”
Stay safe everyone, and march on.
