I'm reading a FB thread where people say they don't speak up against Trump....

....in order to keep disharmony and stress from relationships and others.

What if there was a pin or emblem in support of the Constitution? Keep politics out of it but wear something that supports the Rule of Law, the Separation of Powers, the Free Press...

Would you wear something like that?

Wouldn't it be great if something like that took root across America?

2. A very simple and elegant solution.

How do we urge wide appropriation of this?

3. Yes, of course, but with so many things...

the RW would take it upon themselves to appropriate it as a RW (bastardized) symbol of some kind.

Look at what they've done with the flag (though we still fight back on that one)

Not to mention the RW attempts to re-create both MLK and JFK as promoting RW policies and viewpoints...

and for progressive Christians, do you feel uncomfortable wearing that crucifix necklace your parents gave you in childhood?

Even higher education and credentials/qualifications/intelligence has been made to be "suspect" by the RW...

so....

5. ITMFA

Well .. from https://itmfa.myshopify.com there are these jewels :




But yeah, an upside-down flag would work too ... and be a little bit less confrontational. But I'm kinda over being nice.

8. My (I thought) sane brother in law posted about how Pelosi and Schumer shut down the Gov.

 

Some inane post about $57 to fence the yard.

I pointed out that Schumer can't vote on anything that McConnell hasn't brought up for a vote, That Pelosi and the House passed the bill the Senate passed a month ago. They are doing their jobs, McConnell and Trump are not doing anything.

He removed my post. Fun times...
