Anti-Trump protests continue to spread, and grow. I think this is the new norm.

Courtesy of CNN: 

Thousands took to the streets of cities across the United States late Friday and early Saturday as anti-Donald Trump protests saw highways and interstates blocked, numerous arrests -- and a shooting at a march in Portland, Oregon. 

Angry crowds gathered once again outside the 58-story Trump Tower, the President-elect's home in New York. Protester Shoshi "Rabin" Rabinowitz explained her motivation for being there: "Words can't describe how disgusted I am that he was elected over Hillary (Clinton)," she said. 

"I think he needs to really address all the divisive, hateful things he's said in the past and recant them, denounce them," said fellow New York protester Nick Truesdale. 

There have been nightly protests since Trump's election and more demonstrations are expected through the weekend.

Some of these protests have turned violent, in fact a protester in Portland was shot, but for the most part they are impassioned but peaceful.

When they first started I thought they would peter out in a day or so, but it appears that instead they are gaining both strength and numbers and spreading to other cities in the country.

So yeah, this could be a thing for quite some time.

    1. I'm also an Iowan. And a large portion of high schoolers in Des Moines walked out of class November 9th. It only made local news.

      Perhaps someone should ask the cop killer for a comment? His guy won, after all. I do wonder if the nut had the patience to wait after the election, if those two cops might be alive today. :(

  3. Trump says he plans to only work when Congress is in session, and then only 4 days a week.

      What is he going to do on his days off? Tweet insults, work on his portfolio, cut ribbons at his hotels? What happens if there is a crisis or terrorist attack on his day off?

      I have a feeling trump is in for a big surprise; the presidency is not a part time job. He makes it sound like he is planning on a 4-year vacation.


      And that lazy Obama had the audacity to play golf once in a while or vacation with his family.

      The report said Trump wants to be in NY or his FL estate on weekends. LOL. That would be an enormous expense and unfair to local. New Yorkers to have traffic shut down and high security.

    I hope it's the new norm. I'm glad Michael Moore's encouraging it. I'm glad some are standing up and saying that the media and others must not normalize Trump. I was just watching MSNBC. They're re-airing MM's visit to Morning Joe from yesterday. Hopefully it's available online. Good stuff. And I was glad to hear him mention that about 90,000 MI people voted who left the presidential pick blank. If only they had made a choice. I've watched Rachel and Lawrence online, so it's pry at the MSNBC site.

  6. Oh, and he'd like to keep holding large rallies because he liked the way they made him feel. His aides intend to accomodate him.

    Say, do you know who else liked to hold large exciting rallies?

    After Trump’s win into the White House, a new party sprung up: the Party Of Reason And Progress, or PORP. Their icon sports a porpoise as a nod to the acronym. This group is still working out the kinks and is currently developing a platform. Originally created as a rebuttal to the Tea Party, this group hopes to reform policies to create a more scientifically conscious nation.

    The description reads:

    “This is a group for volunteers of the Party of Reason and Progress (PORP). Founded in 2010, PORP helps educate voters and elect reasonable candidates for various offices. We started after the Tea Party was formed, and re-launched after Donald Trump’s victory!”

    Thousands of members and counting, almost literally overnight. To many, this group has been a safe haven for scientists and science lovers alike. The following grows by the hundreds each hour.

    The Mike Pence (Donald Trump) Assault On LGBTQ Equality Is Already Underway
    It’s only a matter of time before we know the full magnitude.

    I’m not going to sugar-coat this at all. We are in for a full-blown assault on LGBTQ rights the likes of which many, particularly younger LGBTQ people, have not seen. Progress will most certainly be halted completely, likely rolled back. And it’s already underway.

    Trump *wants* economic collapse and riots. He's said so openly many times.
    Consider this excerpt from an explosive February 2014 interview on Fox News:

    “You know what solves it?” he said of America’s sorry state. “When the economy crashes, when the country goes to total hell and everything is a disaster. Then you’ll have a [chuckles], you know, you’ll have riots to go back to where we used to be when we were great.”

    On Friday there was a peaceful "love trumps hate" gathering in my home town in northwest Lower Michigan stalked by someone's scary confederate flag waving from a pickup truck.

    In today's paper the pickup truck driver who flaunted his confederate flag and drove in circles around the gathering was identified as an off-duty local police officer. There will be an inquiry but we all know he'll get off without even a reprimand because he was exercising his first amendment rights. So were the people at the gathering who may well have felt threatened by his menace.

    Our local police, and the police in every part of the country, need a history lesson. The North won the Civil War; the confederate flag, which symbolizes all that was wrong with the divided country in 1861 when that bloody war began, has no place in the hands of a police officer, on duty or off, or in a anyone's hands in the 21st century. It is used as a symbol of hatred, racism and ignorance.
