Unfortunately, the orange asshole is now in charge and we the people are paying the price. There is not much that I can say that hasn’t been said already. The women’s marches on January 21 seemed to spark a movement and even I was surprised at the turnout around the world. It made me happy to see so many people standing up for what is right. Unfortunately, we are more divided than ever. Many of us are worried that our personal lives are going to be negatively affected by the actions of those in power. Personally, I am afraid. I am afraid that those of us with dissenting voices will be targeted. I am afraid that I will no longer have health insurance. I am afraid that my husband will lose his social security disability and Medicare. If that happens, he might die and that is not hyperbole. I am afraid that the economy will get so bad that jobs will be lost. The apocalyptic vision with Trump in charge is nothing less than bleak. If you don’t believe that, you’re either crazy or blind to the truth. Betsy DeVos is on tap to be the new Education Secretary. A woman who knows absolutely NOTHING about education will be running our country’s educational system. I pray that my son will not lose his teaching job. Don’t even get me started on Steve Bannon. He is evil.
Friends, we are facing dark days ahead unless we act.
