I didn't get it, TexCavy, I'll try sending one to you and see if we can get in touch that way.

If anyone (sender or receiver) has a yahoo address, it will fail to be delivered to all parties using the mailer.

I ended up with notices of failures of all emails in my mailbox.

I think my notice mailer here is still yahoo.
But I now use texcavy at gmail instead.

Michael Moore is also predicting a Coup dTrump.
He's the guy that predicted Trump would win.

I feel for you, TexCavy. I'm fighting panic all the time. It helps that I'm in the Boston area and was able to be part of three big protests in the past 10 days. Doing something and connecting with people helps.

My big fear is what happens after the next incident of domestic terrorism. I suspect that the majority of our populace will readily trade what's left of our civil rights for the illusion of more security.

Here's a fun and useful thing to do. Surprisingly straightforward questions about Rump from Fox News. Be sure to click Vote after every question. Even if it doesn't record immediately, you can continue with the survey and it will catch up with you.

I didn't answer some because they were misleading - like should Mexico pay for the wall.

There shouldn't be a wall! I didn't enter any answer.

The slant of most of the votes in that Fox poll was surprisingly ... sane.

I liked voting and then watching the ticker go up on this worldwide petition.

I signed it too.

I just read a superb interview with someone who has been trying for years to change Democratic messaging. The basis is in psychology and the way our minds work. Repeating the bad stuff reinforces it.

You might also want to watch Keith Olbermann's apology to the world. I hope they hear us.

I basically don't think petitions do anything, and especially not with Rump.

I'm getting pressured on social media by the few apathetic in their little blind bubbles to stop being to politically outspoken. It's getting to me today. I was not a political person till I heard trumpspeak. I knew what it was and where it could lead. I changed completely. People are missing the old fun, FB entertainer I used to be. I try to tell them you can only have that back if we win this fight. I don't think I am getting through.

TexCavy, don't try to convince them. You'll never budge the die-hard Rump supporters.

Put your efforts into the 50% of people who didn't vote in the last election. Get trained as a deputy voter registrar (free, one hour training, see the tax assessor's page for your county) and register people to vote.

Call your legislators and register your opposition.

Above all, find a local group to join -- you'll get plenty of support there.

Not Rump supporters. All known followers of his have been blocked. I mean people who don't vote or care about politics or people who want to ignore what is happening and pretend it isn't real.

If you understand legalese, you can comment on these U.S. Government regulation pages (although you should probably be a U.S. citizen to do so):

Great links! I like the boycotts. And I shall hone my Rude Gestures.

The first link actually provides some inspiration regarding what one can do.

I apologize if I am reposting a link that has been shown before. Now I am getting my breakdown of the news from this mailing list. It is somewhat less shocking and fear inducing this way for me.
