Gonna be straight-up honest here

I snagged these two quote-y-quotes from grrm
quote
And I quote him, his words not mine
The late great Daniel Patrick Moynihan once said, "Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts." So make no mistake, when Kellyanne Conway talks about "alternative facts," what she means is lies.

Here's another quote for you: "“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." That one is from Josef Goebbels. Keep him in mind when you hear the big lies repeated ad nauseum.
And I Unquote him

This has been working for Fox News, and Republican politicians for decades. We've all been slow to catch on, but no one can ignore it, now. We can resist this.

You are absolutely right, we can resist this. And I honestly believe that the only real way to resist is to get educated and to stay involved. Thanks for being encouraging with these little protest posts of mine. I truly appreciate it and to see your name pop up again.

Today has been a hell of a day.

My representatives are going to get pretty tired of hearing from me!

It has been a hell of a day. I feel like I'm living in an alt-universe or something. Let them get tired ofhearing from you, although they shouldn't, it's their job, right?

We are watching the making of a narcissistic dictator. In Turkey. In Russia. And now - which I never thought possible - in the USA.

The pendulum swings and it does seem to be swinging hard to the right in many countries but I just did a short post about how the ACLU has recieved $19M in donations and 150,000 new members since Saturday. Now that's the kind of unprecedented I can live with. The threat is much more clearly defined now, we know what we're fighting against. Before I lived in a bubble. I no longer do. And it is 'we'. We're all in this together :)

Amen! And Amen again! What I will never understand about some folks is how they can put their ambitions above their integrity. That's what so many of those surrounding that man are doing. I don't for a second believe that they believe what they are saying when they make excuses for him that simply defy logic and common sense. The thought that keeps running through my head when I think of Trump is... if it looks like a duck (insecure egomaniacal narcissist), talks like a duck (insecure egomaniacal narcissist), and walks like a duck (insecure egomaniacal narcissist) then the chances are it is a duck (insecure egomaniacal narcissist). Sympathetic hugs, Grammy

Chances are he's a duck (insecure egomaniacal narcissist). Right you are. Thing I wonder about is whether they ever had much, if any, integrity to begin with to put their ambitions above. What, me cynical? Nah :)

Sympathetic hugs to you too.
