About Me

I stand on the sand, and I'm rocking grief to sleep in my arms.

Are any DUers planning to be in DC for the Science March?

It looks like I'll be going alone

So I subscribed to the Federal Register.

They put out a document every day and there's a section called "Presidential Documents"
here can be found trump's fiats. day after day.
here's one from today's email:
Committees; Establishment, Renewal, Termination, etc.:
Crime Reduction and Public Safety Task Force; Establishment (EO 13776) ,
1069910700 [201703118]

i read it as a directive to Sessions to impose a police state. Any other interpretations please chime in, i'm no lawyer.

but the reason i'm posting here is i wonder what this means:
" (c) This order is not intended to, and does not,
create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural,
enforceable at law or in equity by any party against
the United States, its departments, agencies, or
entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any
other person."

what does that mean?


anyone can look at the federal register and you can subscribe at https://www.archives.gov/federal-register/the-federal-register/email-signup.html

who knows how long this will be available. as far as i know the white house is still not taking calls. ETA: i just got through this morning. but i am at work and couldn't hold so it's not certain i ever would have been connected to a person, but maybe. the last time i tried i reached a recording saying the system was done or somesuch. I was just going to leave a message for trump reminding him that there is a constitution, a first amendment, and a system of checks and balances in this country that precludes him from being a dictator. maybe i'll have more time later.

I may have missed something,

what with the shit flying so hard and fast and all, but has Trump brought any legislation to the Congress for consideration? Or has he just sat at his desk signing orders for the camera on his trump as prez reality tv show?

Is there a DU check in post for the Women's March?

If so, please provide link. If not, let this be it. Sister marchers please check in as well
2 sons, 1 DIL, granddaughter and me - leaving for DC from NC tomorrow

just for shits and giggles

i copied my blocked list on FB and put it into a spreadsheet.

i have 580 people on my blocked list. i find that Media Matters posts are good for finding people whose idiocy i decide i never have to look at again.

Bulletin for NC voters


emergency meeting by the board of elections. call in at 4 pm today.

All alone in a hotel in Philadelphia.

there for work. losing my shit, calling my children, running downstairs to smoke frantically, having shock take over, having to work the next day.

Thursday i called in sick and cried at my computer.

All this without DU. I was online and that video started up and i was in the hotel room looking at fb instead tabbing back and forth and then it was gone, it was gone, I had no one and not even DU and

The sky FELL.

A week out and I'm day to day. How are you?

Need to double and triple my activities for justice. Need to donate more and more and more. Going to march in DC on the 21st, who's with me?

minutemen militia. stopthefed.

does anyone have any idea about these websites? A friend's son on FB is posting from these sites and others i've never heard of and frankly i won't click on the links, because the things he says on FB are so off the hook.
