19. When my husband says: "Why didn't we move to Canada during BushCheney?!" My response always

...is: "We would have missed out on Barack Obama." I mean that -- those were 8 years of grace and a chance to build again. But as I often said here, only a chance, and so much depended on other people than Obama -- like us, and like the good will of the GOP. Thus America blew the chance.

Right now is possibly the worst and most perilous time in our history, and it is hard as hell to see any good in the future. My husband and I are 70 -- so same age cohort as you, MN. I have no advice to give except to hang on, check in here, and occasionally check to see what the Resistance is doing. There's an awful lot of younger people involved, and women are popping up all over the country filing to run for political offices.

In other words, when Hillary Clinton's chances at the presidency were murdered in cold blood, the story was by NO means over.

600,000 people marched in Los Angeles this weekend, 200,000 in New York, and more across the country. At every rally there were not just speakers but activists at card tables registering people to vote and handing out information and showing how to participate.

That's where my hope is residing. May we all live to see our democracy and republic renewed.
