Protesting in the Rain
I went out today to go protest. They are doing a short noon-time protest in front of the local Congressman's office. It was in the 50s but raining like crazy. It's rare for it to be that warm in February, it's supposed to drop back down to the 20s by the end of the week. I was able to sit outside with my umbrella on my walker holding the protest sign above with around 60 other people in my town who are protesting Trump and his various programs and plots. One man had a sign against DeVos. I drew a poster against Trump as "Lucy" holding a football for Charlie Brown, the "American voter" to kick. Charlie Brown is thinking "Maybe this time things will work". Trump promises "I'll drain the swamp!". Well we have seen how that has gone with his multiple Goldman Sachs appointees. If I am living under the highway underpass one day because of Republican leaders who hate poor people, at least I will know I spoke out for myself.
