restoman: (My 2 Cents)

This is from a long-time facebook friend:

A good list of things to keep in mind...
Not my words, but I concur.

1. Don't use his name;
2. Remember this is a regime and he's not acting alone;
3. Do not argue with those who support him--they will not change their minds.
4. Focus on his policies, not his mental state;
5. Keep your message positive; they want the country to be angry and fearful because this is the soil from which their darkest policies will grow.
6. No more helpless / hopeless talk!
7. Support artists and the arts.
8. Be careful not to spread fake news. Check it twice.
9. Take care of yourselves
10. Resist in whatever way resonates with you that does no bodily/property harm!

Catching fake news is *so* important!

It's hard not to feel hopeless, but the meds are helping with that. There's so much to fear, but there really is a lot to hope for and do too.

You sound more positive than I feel, Chris. Maybe I could use some meds too.

One easy way to catch fake news and information: If Der Gropenfuhrer said it, assume that it is a lie.

Thanks, Jon.
It is comforting to know that so many people are feeling the same way we do.

All ten of those things on the list are excellent thoughts.

Thanks, Jerry.
I didn't write the list, but I thought it was important enough to share it here.
