Without Ania and Chris, this post wouldn’t have happened, so: thank you both!
Betsy DeVos’s confirmation vote is tomorrow. Here is all the information you need for calling your senators and opposing her, including reasons why. She is a complete catastrophe – we need to fight her! If you have a Republican senator, make extra sure you call them to lodge your opposition, because we need three of those little shits to flip in order to prevent her from getting her grubby Christian Dominionist hands all over the Department of Education.
While you’re on the phone with them, you might want to drop in a mention that you oppose Trump’s actions on immigration and would very much like to see him obey the fucking law.
In other news, I am not doing well at all. If you want to help me make rent so there’s one less thing causing panic attacks, I would be eternally grateful. You can donate here:
I may be taking the next couple of days off from ETEV, due to major upheavals at home, plus B and I going out job hunting, and having exceeded my ability to handle shit without medication. Please do follow me on Facebook (most of my stuff is public, so you can see and share even if we’re not formally friends). With the Chitler regime doing something else appalling every half hour, it’s about the only place where I can even try to keep up. Plus, you’ll get lots of pictures of a very elderly felid. She is just over a month away from her 23rd birthday!
I’ll be publishing more Mount St. Helens photos at Rosetta Stones soon, since I’m trying to download everything from the USGS database before Trump destroys that, too.
And I’m hoping that after this week, I’ll settle into a new routine and be able to blog like never before. I’ll at least be blogging five days a week.
I love you, my darlings. Thank you for supporting this blog and keeping me alive all these years. Thank you for standing with me as we face one of the most disastrous periods in American history. I will do my utmost to be here for you, too.
