It's been five long years of blogging the Trump years. We've laughed, we've cried, we've pulled some of our remaining hair out, but we've made it. It is almost done and our democracy, nation, and souls are still largely intact.

Each is an extension of the last so you can read as much or as little as you like and still get something you can use.

Meme: Welcome Home, Ilhan!


Racism is dying in America. We are witnessing the violent death throes of racism. Unfortunately, when open racism dies, it just sinks below the surface to slink along less detectable, especially by the white privileged.

The welcome Rep. Ilhan Omar got was as heart-warming as the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s chant was chilling.

Michelle Obama, meme, our America

Meme: It’s OUR America


We all need a voice of hope now and again… well, a little more often than that in #FascistAmerica. As she does so often, Michelle Obama finds an opportune moment to lift our flagging spirits and remind us of why we #Resist.
