Just curious. I'm not watching tonight for many reasons

I can't stand his voice or phoney inflections (trying to tone himself down like he is a reasonable person which we know he's not).

His hair always distracts me. Is that a real color?

His speech is always the same. Build a wall, kill Obama care (it's a disaster folks)

Going to have the biggest military and the most nukes ever. We will win wars and take the oil.

Anyway, along those lines. I don't expect the dems to do anything unexpected because we are decorous in these traditional occasions when the leader speaks.

I will catch the highlights from DU, and Rachel and friends. Then I don't have to look or listen to his tinyness.

So, I'm curious, are you watching tonight? Why or why not.

Trying to stop protesters, eleven states have passed laws last week making most

Protesting subject to fines, imprisonment and property seizure. Az added it to their racketeering law giving authorities more power to seize property from organizers or anyone that destroys property. The intent really is to stifle dissent before it gets started.

Minnesota is working on a bill that will charge protesters the cost of policing demonstrations.

Iowa is working on a bill that makes blocking traffic a felony punishable by up to five years.

And the mayor of DC just appointed a new police chief, Peter Newsham, known for violating protester rights . DC was sued and lost a multi million dollar lawsuit because his tactics violated civil rights in 2002.

These efforts are because of mass demonstrations that have already been witnessed since rumps inauguration. Scared the crap out of them I guess. Be careful. Read these articles and know your rights.☮️

Help. I tried to by some hearts on my Visa card. Thought I did it right.

But have not gotten mail about my hearts. Maybe I sent them somewhere? Other than me. It was only ten and I was going to give them all to crazycatlady for doing me a favor. Nothing has shown up on my bank account here. Should I buy some more?

We are Winning!

In NM voters and progressives kicked as on NM elections for school boards. Killed the pee party.

Progressive candidates fought off pro-Trump Tea Party candidates in school board elections around the state, Tuesday. It was the first election test of the newly energized progressive movement in the Trump era.

The results are still coming in but the early results are already clear: this movement isn’t just about resistance in the streets – we’re voting, too!
