I am not giving up and neither should you.

"Hallelujah."




Her words are truer now than they were then. We will not give up.











Come at us boys. You will lose.

We have SO much going on. It's actually rather inspiring.

But I find myself wishing that I'd signed up for those free juggling classes years ago . . .

15. This country is a gonner

I still had hope after the Bush administration. I thought, "That was as bad as it can get. People are finally going to see Republicans for what they are."

Hah!

There are a lot of despicable assholes in the world. And the more despicable they are, the more passionate they are about voting.

So, no... I'm not fighting any more. If things get too bad here, I'll move to another country. Fuck it.

I'm not giving up. I went to my first local demonstration with PP this week and I plan to do another one on Monday. This song pics me up when I feel discouraged. My links not showing but just check out Never Give Up by Sia at YouTube.

21. That cold open broke my heart when I saw it the first time.

I'm not kidding. My heart cracked. Leonard Cohen and the squalid ascension of You-Know-Who to the White House.

And Hillary Clinton's mournful SNL surrogate giving us a reason to hope. A reason to go on...

I'm not giving up, either...

27. Trump is going to wish he had never been born.

If he was a smarter man, he'd wish that we had never been born.

He'll wish he had stayed in New York, racking up the bankruptcies, re-marrying every five years or so, and depleting the world's reserves of gold leaf. Bad enough when a man rises to his level of incompetence, but when he rises above his level of incompetence, bad things happen...

25. I think, objectively, the odds are against us...

...but we must act *as if* we can redeem the country, make it a place worthy of a civilized people, and leave it in better condition for our children than we found it. Despair is never an option...even though I've come damned close at times. Thanks for this thread, which heartens me.

We can fight till the cows come home, but that's not going to change anything. Republicans control the government, and I don't see that changing any time soon.

43. "If there is one message that echoes forth from this conference,

let it be that human rights are women's rights and women's rights are human rights, once and for all." -- Hillary Clinton.

Whether Hill runs for office again or not, she will always be a world-class leader for human rights.

Just looking at that "Hallelujah" picture makes me feel weepy, so I'm not opening it, but I loved seeing it. Thanks, Sheshe.
