Reblog: Inhumane, Cruel and Unconscionable

I’m reblogging this post from Jill Dennison because it lays out very clearly what is at stake in America exactly four weeks from today. Please follow the link below and take a few moments to read and ponder what she has so effectively articulated.

Yes, of course I am talking about the current occupant of the White House … who else?  I am so damn sick and tired of writing about Donald Trump … …

Inhumane, Cruel and Unconscionable

    One of my sons and I were discussing moving out of the country if Trump stays in office (by vote of the people). One of our most favored possibilities (largely because he’s been there before) was Italy. But I texted him, later, that the population there had Silvio Berlusconi in office for quite a while. [No, we don’t have any Italian background.]

    The more I thought about it or just “sat” with the thought, I realized I’m very attached to America as a place… geographically. And my children do have Native American heritage. I felt a tinge of homesickness at the real idea of leaving. Yes, my background is European (and a tinge of middle-eastern), but I’m sticking with this place.

    We are all tired, fed up, beaten down, and bummed out. Let’s hope we get to fix that really soon.

    I am posting here a comment similar to what I put on Jill’s post. Ranting is fine; I do it myself. But what’s most important now is action. The Biden-Harris campaign is well-organized and seeking an army of volunteers. I signed up to do get out the vote texting. I’ll have a Zoom training session; then I’ll devote an hour daily to texting voters for Biden-Harris and down ballot Dems wherever needed.

    If you listened to Michelle Obama’s exhortation to vote today, the subtext was that we need a huge turnout to overcome all the cheating and suppression. We know that—but we can do it. And taking action combats exhaustion and a sense of hopelessness.

      Everyone I know, and I myself, have decided with no doubt, that if our mail-in ballots don’t arrive in our own mailboxes, we will be going in to vote on Election Day regardless of risk.

        I just completed my mail-in ballot today and will be dropping it off at a ballot dropbox tomorrow.
