The following is a link to an astute article by Robert Reich, which states several good ideas, that all Progressives should “now” heed, with regard to the critical “StumpTrump” campaign, that must now ensue, in this country.

Of course, there are more “calls to action” that can be added to his list, but the over-arching point here is that we simply cannot allow the incoming, “toxic” administration and their inevitable, toxic agenda (on the 99 %)“one” moment to breathe, without bold, hardline resistance from every direction , and every medium - especially in the “social media” realm!

Seriously, time is not on our side, here, and we simply have to get going “now”, or it’s very likely that you’ll not be able to recognize your country, in four years! Anymore, it’s truly fair to say that “modern” (as opposed to “Eisenhower-era) Republicanism is truly a “cancer” to America’s 99%, and it must be removed from America’s political landscape, once and for all, if this country is to survive “as we know it”!

This is a time when I look to the true leaders, like Robert Reich, to lead us through the weeds of this election fallout. There are few sources of real information (the link to alternet was blocked on my computer) and I am feeling disoriented, desperate and ready to march to the tried and true messages of Robert Reich, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, Noam Chomsky, Thom Hartmann.......We need to stay close and stay organized now more than ever. Why are we resigning ourselves to this like lambs to the slaughter? This was so so wrong, strip and flip, SmartTech at it again, things not going better with Koch.......Bernie, you saw the potential out there.....the people need a leader who will fearlessly and skillfully protect the public from certain calamity on the horizon.

The link to Alternet is not going through - you can find the article on Robert Reich's website (also, the following link):

Thanks, "k. allen" for your "heads-up", and the additional links, associated with the article in question. It appears as though the link I provided was missing an "e" in the Reich surname, despite the fact that I copied-and-pasted it directly from the “url” bar. A susbsequent “spell check” issue, perhaps? Who knows? How odd.

Well, in any event, and for those who are interested in the actual "Alternet" link, here it is:

Again, thanks.

This is delightful. EVERYTHING you complained the Republicans were doing to Obama you now want the Democrats to do to Trump.

The delicious part of this stew is the 99 judges and three Supreme Court justices Trump will appoint will stop your efforts at every turn.

So Diane do the Republicans have a right to Filibuster and The Democrats do not? Do the Democrats have to advise and consent a Supreme Court Justice if the Republicans do not? Why can the Democrats not do what the Republicans did? Do you want another President that losses the popular vote nominating a Supreme Court Justice? Mitch McCononell wanted the people to select.

Absolutely you have the right to do anything you want. I am just pointing out a progressive radio host condemned that action at least five hundred times over the last eight years. Selective hypocrisy from the left is soooo predictable.
