No!


I totally support this young lady's opposition to many of the Trump administration's "fascist" policies. Before you can say yes to something, you almost certainly have to say no to something else. Yes, I support humanitarian values, but what exactly are those values? Once we're rid of Trump and his troop of misfits, who will we elect to represent us both at the local and national levels? 

Fortunately, I know I'm not alone in this opinion. Others, too, are already looking to what we call our mid-term elections here in the United States in 2020 when a number of key congressional positions will be determined. And as I'll show you here, there were a few candidates for those seats present at the rally. The great question everyone must be asking themselves at this point is do these candidates represent the way forward for our country and the world?

Update
Rally for the Affordable Care Act
Lafayette Square, H St. and 17th St. NW

Not My President's Day Rally



Maybe you heard about the Not My President's Day rallies held yesterday in cities all across the United States. Here in D.C., ours started at Dupont Circle. You can see some folks in the photo below arriving. Looks like they may have taken one of the Red Line trains and emerged from the Dupont Circle station. 

"The park within the circle is maintained by the National Park Service. The central fountain designed by Daniel Chester French provides seating, and long, curved benches around the central area were installed in 1964. The park within the circle is a gathering place for those wishing to play chess on the permanent stone chessboards. Tom Murphy, a homeless championship chess player, is a resident. The park has also been the location of political rallies, such as those supporting gay rights and those protesting the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund." ~ Wikipedia
