Hello dear Hudson!
Can I tell you that the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated, I put my blinders on, stuck my fingers in my ears, and boarded a flight to DisneyWorld with family.
Now, of course Disney is 100% wired and wifi connected – so while on the Mad Tea Cup Ride, I would read about the country falling apart around me. I was figuratively and literally spinning!
However, all is not lost, and if anything, dear liberal Democrats, progressive Berniecrats, Independents, and reasonable Republicans, what the past week has taught us is that we must be more involved in the political process otherwise the crazies take over.
Let’s congratulate our own Federal Senator from Columbia County, Kristen Gillibrand, for doing an excellent job and voting against most of Trump’s appointments.
Our OTHER Senator? Chuck Schumer? Ugh.
Can’t we have AMY Schumer instead? She’s a much better representative of my interests.
Now, there’s our Republican Congressman John Faso. Well, he’s not so great. He votes with this Trump idiot.
Multiple phone calls, emails, asking for his schedule to meet constituents, blah, blah, blah….nothing.
But, if you pay him a home visit in Kinderhook, he magically appears. Thank you very much, Congressional Representative; it’s good to know you’re so available. Maybe we can discuss your voting record in the frozen food section of Price Chopper next time.
Your votes disrupt OUR personal lives, so I have no problem disrupting YOUR personal life.
(You show up at a Congressman’s home, and all of a sudden Republicans scream, “What about BOUNDARIES?!?”)
I found this on the Facebook this morning. I don’t know if any of these numbers are good or real, but you have unlimited minutes, right? Just call and find out. And if it works, well, then call EVERY DAY!
I know what you’re thinking, maybe FASO will come around if he just LISTENS to us…
Yeah, no girl.
You see, having the expectation that John Faso is going to vote with the Democrats, is like dating a married man.
They MAY tell you what you want to hear.
The sex MAY be great – especially since you do all the things that the “wife” won’t do (what? ruin a good manicure?)
They MAY SAY that they love you – but ultimately, they go home to their wives – and vote Republican.
The election is in 2018.
Join the Resistance. Do everything you can.
It is on, folks!
