It seems a Half Million folks went to D.C. for the Women's March. That added with events around this Republic today it comes to well over a Million. The Press is now saying "MILLIONS."

Bleeping "Plural".

Above. A side-by-side view of the crowds during President Barack Obama’s inauguration in 2009 and Donald Trump’s inauguration in 2017.

Numbers speak.

Trump has 'No' Mandate. ...and must be constantly reminded.


  1. The Stoic philosopher Epictetus said "Don't wish for things to be as you would have them; wish for them to be as they are." Or words to that effect.

    I've been trying to take that attitude about the state of things, including the election outcome. I've decided to be glad about whatever happens - after all, I've no control over it - and have been assuming Pollyanna-like that Trump will backslide on a lot of his campaign promises, like building giant expensive walls and deporting millions of people. I've also been assuming that the fears by many that he'll roll back decades of civil rights and gay rights and so forth are highly exaggerated.

    But I have to admit I could be wrong. He and his supporters might unleash a frenzy of illiberalism across the land - especially if the latters' economic hopes are dashed. So I'm keeping my eye on the exits and planning to renew my passport as soon as I can.


  2. I'm digging my heels in, and getting ready for the Storm of the Century,...several of them.

    My dear sister went out to the Emerald City version of the "Woman's March for Sanity". "Millions" they say were out today.


    That is indeed what it will take. Old friend we are in for a Helluva Ride!!
