Paul, let Wombat enjoy her chopsticks before Trump makes them illegal.

Fair enough.

They can be used to build a great wall of balsa wood a million miles tall and half a centimeter thick to stop those dirty Spanish Muslims from crossing the Rio Grande and taking our jerbs and imposing Shari'a Communism.  Why don't you love America, Wombat?

I thought it would take longer than a week for Trump to create a constitutional crisis, but hey, he's a fast worker. We'll see in the next couple of days if the Republicans are going to stand up to him or are they going to just let him continue down this road towards authoritarian rule.

There going to use him to do all the stuff that they really want to do, but don't want to be on the record doing.  Then they'll get rid of Trump and have the kind of theocratic authoritarian that they've always wanted. 

Mark my words.  Trump won't serve the entire four years.

I hope you're right because I already can't take anymore of it.

Even so, there is stuff I am learning about my fellow Americans that isn't going to go away. Till recently I still had the faith in basic goodness to believe that people didn't quite understand what was going on, but this immigration order thing has proved I was wrong. It appears there are people who apparently know exactly what is happening and actually think it's totally OK to turn refugees away, even in the cruellest possible way at the last minute when they've been going through the process for years. I heard a guy on a call-in show say that he didn't see why we had to take any immigrants at all because "we have enough people." I don't even know where to begin, with that kind of thinking, but that is not a world I want to live in.

Yeah, that's the saddest part of this whole deal.  Right now I'm relying on the words of St. Fred and hoping this spurs the rest of us become better helpers:

"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping." To this day, especially in times of "disaster," I remember my mother's words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers so many caring people in this world."

Right. Important to remember that people are rising to the challenge amazingly. I'm not because right now I can't even bite through the toast, but I'm hoping I'll find a way.

What really blows me away is how people are feeling like a new wind is blowing and they feel like they can let slip what has been under the surface of 'em all along.

Yeah. This is why I was afraid Trump would win despite the polls - because we had made just enough progress for people to know they shouldn't SAY racist things. And they knew that telling the truth about their voting plans amounted to exactly that.

I have been going to protests, and was kind of split on whether they felt good or productive for the first few. Then Saturday I went to JFK (airport) and yelled LET THEM IN! for 2 hours, which felt so good. And then I left because I got tired and cold. Next time, long johns and gloves. I also joined a local lefty organization and have been going to meetings on various issues. It makes me feel a little better. I try not to think about things that could go horrifically wrong (not going to list them here, either) and focus on smaller stuff.

There is a rumor he's mulling an anti-immigration pro-jobs action where one part would tell the Census Bureau they had to collect information on people's immigration status. This would make me feel very conflicted about doing my job.

At this rate he's not going to last 3 months.

I have one particular high school FB friend who was in the tank for Jill Stein before the election. The parties are the same, Hillary is just as terrible as Trump, and so on.

Now, she's not pro-Trump, exactly, but goes out of her way to tell "the resistance" that they're hysterical and counter-productive. All this Russia stuff is a conspiracy theory. Trump can't actually do anything important. You're not helping, and you're only making "real Americans" dislike you more.

I kinda think she's compensating for something.

My very nice friend knows I am to the left of her, and asked if I had any ideas about her good friend who followed the same trajectory as the FB friend you're describing. I said it sounds like whatever is going on, it has more to do with his personal hangups than anything in the real world. I'm glad Carlos has a similar thought process and I'm not just a grump.

This same person just posted in a comment, "Most people think 9/11 was an inside job."
No. No, "most people" do not.
