This I Believe

Apologies for the large image, but you don't hide Lady Liberty's light under a bushel.

I live-streamed the Women's March on Washington. My First Born attended the march in Chicago. And, although I know it's just the beginning - continued resistance is hard work - I think knowing how much support, how many allies, there are around the world, is a tremendous boost.

Isn't it wonderful? I found a website that had downloadable signs to use at the various marches, and I picked this one up, along with a few others. I can't remember where I got them, otherwise I'd pass ont he information. Feel free to take this one, though!

(Oh, by the way, I finally started watching "Class" and I like it a lot, although that's based on only one episode. )

There are SO MANY GOOD SIGNS!!

I think I'm going to make an animated icon with a pussy hat and then a rotating gallery of quotes. So I'm collecting. ;)

Huzzah! And if you like the first one, that's important. It's a very very good pilot, and lays down SO MUCH stuff it's amazing. Hope you like where it goes. (And that's another show I need to get back to writing reviews for... So little time, so much to do! /o\) My thoughts on/review of ep 1 is here if you're curious. No spoilers of course. :)

Food takes precedence. Always.

Of course, Hillary has written her off as just a tramp.

As you know (Bob), I'm not as large a fan of Hilary as some people; I really despised her corporatist ties and much of her foreign policy hawkishness. As you'd no doubt be unsurprised to hear, I supported Bernie (as is only proper for a properly pink Canuck lover of Canuck-style socialism). I do think she cares deeply for this country. A lot of people I disagree with at a fundamental level care deeply for this country; they differ in how they show that love, but I won't question the love itself.

So I focus here on Lady Liberty, rather than any other lady.

I think the current Administration may indeed have people who love this country - I disagree with how they show that, because I think they will (perhaps unknowingly) damage the Lady - but I question whether the gentleman at the very top can love anything beyond himself.

Um.

There's this thing that happens when I see people's faces. I've looked at hers many times and never gotten a different take from the first time. So:

Hillary certainly does love the country...

...and I love steak.

Heh. This made me snicker - I may disagree, but it did make me snicker.

Hope you are doing well!

It's gorgeous. Feel free to take it. I got it from a site that offered it, and a few other graphics, to everyone. I wish I could remember where the site was.
