2. Hanging on by the lightest grip one can have and still hold on.


Seems like it gets harder every day. Today’s Supreme Court decision was just the latest kick in the teeth. We need some good news from somewhere. Mueller, throw us a tidbit. Please.

3. I am somewhat optimistic. If the Mueller invetsigation was a "nothingburger" it would have been over

by now. Keep your spirits up....

6. I don't think it is

but the length of investigation is no indication of the findings. See Whitewater for example.

8. Whitewater was a highly partisan charade. I don't think anyone ever pled guilty or served time.

The Mueller investigation is a different thing entirely. Equating the two doesn't seem plausible to me.

4. You'll be wiser than **** for all your fight against Trump. Remember

how cool the greatest generation are were? How they built a great society? That was cause they went through he'll and came out the other side. So as they say "when you are going through hell - KEEP GOING!!!"

5. Are you marching on the 30th? Doing that always revives me.

7. Yes, I can

Thank you Squinch. The white flag of surrender, without a fight is not in my nature. Blame my parents

12. I'm glad you mentioned that

My daughter and son in law will be with us in Richmond that weekend.

Marching against ahole in DC would be a great family outing!

9. Find a march on the 30th

It's a massive recharge to be surrounded by people of like mind. Personally, I'm blessed with a loud voice and leading my favorite call/response chant, "Tell me what democracy looks like! Democracy looks like this!" keeps me going for months.

10. Start taking action....the other side wants us to feel powerless and we are not

 

First thing to do is hook up with local democratic committee and start helping with registering new voters.


Doing nothing is how we got here

14. Feeling dejected and demoralized too

And needing any sort of good news not to lose all hope at this point.
