OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWere something like 10 days into the era of the Trumpster and there are a lot of unhappy people out there, so what to do. I don’t recommend violence like some of his supporters are doing, but I do recommend peaceful civil disobedience. There are a lot of young people saying what good will that do? If you look back into are not so distant history you’ll see it’s what got the Civil Rights movement going, it helped get rid of the draft, it helped end an unpopular war and if you go further back it got the women the right to vote. So now maybe it will help keep the lunatic fringe at bay while we figure out how to handle Trump. Another way it can be used is to influence any and all elections no matter how small. I know people want change and I agree with them thing have to change but not by going backwards. I’ve said this before I don’t believe manufacturing jobs will come back to this country in the numbers Trump and the disenfranchised workers want. He wants to do away with alternate fuel research in favor of coal and oil. Well instead of sending people into holes in that ground or strip mining the countryside. Why not train people in alternate fields, and thus create jobs that don’t endanger the worker or the environment? People worried about the people Bush surrounded himself with well they should be worried about who the Trumpster surrounds himself with. This is where protests like marches and letter writing campaigns and phone calls to you elected officials can have an effect. If you sit back and say let’s see what happens it will be too late. This is a very unhappy Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
