Ya know, 4 years ago I was horrified by the election of Donald Trump. I was pissed off and angry.

So I grabbed my pink pussy hat and took to the streets. It was much larger than the angry Insurrection mob. It encompassed hundreds of cities in every state.

Not one arrest. 1/
Instead of storming the Capitol. We fucking organized. It started with Resist Trump Tuesdays at our Senators office.

Then we organized the March for Truth.

We organized to protest the family separations.

We organized around candidates that we supported. 2/
The Resistance was in every state, blue and red. We knocked doors, we called our reps en mass, we did dozens of protests, from signs over the freeway, to die in's at Senate offices. 3/
And one year ago, we called for the impeachment of Donald Trump.

We have known for 5 years what he is. We knew then. Our worst fears have been confirmed.

This was true last year, this is even more true today.
4/
Then came the killings of Ahmed Aubrey, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor & many more.

That was not a moment, but a movement.

We were met with tear gas, rubber bullets, lines of National Guard.

We were called rioters, Antifa, agitators. 5/
The GOP were silent when Trump did a photo op.

They blocked bills meant for police accountability.

There were no calls for unity. Instead they attacked & ignored the pain of those marginalized.

They called us terrorists for mooing at a congressman. 6/
Now the GOP calls for unity. Ignoring their culpability, their lies.

They say you can't IMPEACH Trump with 7 days left.

But they could seat a lifetime SCOTUS judge with 8 days before an election. 7/
There can be no healing until the responsible people atone for their actions.

Until the GOP can acknowledge what they did.

Until those guilty are arrested, or removed from office.

And until the GOP finally tell the American people the truth: that they admit to the big lie.
And once again, we will take the next 4 years to organize. But we will not attempt insurrection.

Instead, we will work night and day to see that every member of the republican party that was complicit is punished: by the courts or by the voters.

Because it is we, the people.
And to the insurrectionist that want to blame it on Antifa.

Bitch please.

I have a #Christmas2020 story for @RepChrisStewart and @SenMikeLee -who voted against #COVIDReliefPackage

My friend posted this. Within 30 minutes, she had gotten over 20 replies. She chose a man who had 3 young daughters. She was a bit nervous though.
He was a very muscular man, covered in tattoos. (Note, my friend can be afraid of her own shadow at times, but she has a heart of gold).

Since she has 2 granddaughters, she decided to see if she could find some other things to go with the dream tents.
She found some stuffed animals, some lego sets and a few other things. She put the items in a box and delivered them. When she arrived, she told this man to go look through the box and he could have whatever he wanted.

I want to share a story that happened tonight. I met a friend at another friend's house. As we pulled up, 2 little girls were skate boarding. They were probably about 10 years old. One of the girls feel pretty hard. (She is black).

Of course, we immediately went to her.
That is what you do, when you see a child get hurt. We asked if she was ok. She said yes, despite the fact she was bleeding. As I got closer, she scooted backwards and asked if I was "one of the good guys".

I assured her that I just wanted to help.
We had some supplies in the car, and I could see that all the skin had been b taken off the knuckle of one hand.

Finally, after about 5 minutes, she let me look at her hand. We were able to get it cleaned up and sent her home to get the injury washed out better.
