The State of the Union is Worrying

Thom plus logo We are worried about global warming, all the lobbyists running government, that the economy will crash, that Trump will start a war, for the children that have been ripped from the mother's arms at the border, that Trump has sold this country out to other dictators around the world, and that Mike Pence will destroy the rights of women.

We are also worried because many of us are one paycheck away from the street and the next medical crisis may be unaffordable. But, most of all we are worried - what Trump might do - that we can't yet imagine. When you govern by whim - you get a worried electorate.

What has he done about rights?
