Big ups to anyone who went to D.C. on Saturday.

Therese our Pink-Hatted Wonder! Good for you!
Hi everybody!
  10:28pm Hoboken Jack:

Thank you for marching, Therese!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I was thinking about the marchers Saturday. Like a slug, I didn't even know there was a gathering locally. www.poughkeepsiejournal.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Matt from Springfield:

Admittedly I wouldn't recognize the writer of "Our Bodies, Ourselves" on sight - but I'm sure she's proud of that and doesn't need to point it out (esp. to so many people at a march!)
  10:31pm hendrix wolfbat:

Holy cow! Our bodies ourselves! Dang
Avatar 10:32pm Veronica (OG):

Therese, that's so cool you got to meet one of the women who put together Our Bodies Ourselves!...and thanks to The Little Knittery in L.A. for the Pussyhat Project...
  10:35pm hendrix wolfbat:

The real question is how do keep that momentum going and STOP THEM ? There's already two shockingly horrible bills being introduced; one to leave theUN!!? And another to be able to just throw out preexisting laws with no hearings or reviewes
  10:37pm sugarwolf:

@KenFromHP: I saw in the paper that Poughkeepsie had a march on the walkway over the Hudson. They were expecting 2000 and there 5000!! Cool!!

When I hear scary news I try to remember that instilling fear is a tactic. I saw one great sign that said something like - our enthusiasm is higher than our fear.

Yeah Veronica!
Totally glad I understand more about Eastern religions and thought now - so many intriguing and fascinating ideas like that.
Avatar 10:52pm Linda Lee:

coping strategies? you mean re: new political realities? coping involves balance! knowing i need self-care, quietude, pleasure as much as i need engagement, information, community, awareness. life isn't easy & i don't plan on making it harder for myself than it has to be. balance in all things, because balance feeds strength. superman is a myth!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm Gaylord Fields:

Ah, the Housemartins — a great two-album band, and the best Marxist-Christian pop group Hull ever produced.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ken HP: It seems that every 80 years or so, the U.S. faces an existential crisis in identity: the Revolution-to-Constitution/Civil War/WWII/post-industrial post-media post-truth mess. Most Americans love this country and wouldn't let anyone cast all that aside (including our Non-Super Superman, Linda). But to resist those people need to be engaged and not apathetic. AWARENESS like the Women's March making a public display gives a narrative that we aren't giving up and aren't going to let this become a twisted, different America.
Avatar 10:57pm Veronica (OG):

Yeah, Linda, that's important. WFMU is part of my self-care :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01pm Matt from Springfield:

@Gaylord: Huh, what a concept. And Fatboy Slim! He got started there!

But as for "the best Marxist-Christian pop group Hull ever produced", would the mid 20s vocal groups "Wilberforce" and "The Social Gospel" from Hull count? Oh wait, they were from Sutton, never mind...
  11:02pm JakeGould:

FWIW, midterm elections in 2 years. Congressional elections count this time more than ever.
Avatar 11:03pm Linda Lee:

also, as Rural Community Member Most Likely To Be Disappeared Under Christo-Fascism, i'm holding my community responsible for maintaining solidarity against the things community members pledge to oppose! gestures won't get us through the hard times ahead. true community, with some level of joined sacrifice, will. this means recognizing true allies against true enemies & refusing to be led by the nose into isolation on the basis of personal prejudices.

Was just thinking, that sounds like Tobin Sprout, and I just streamed a song from his new album... then I come back to the playlist, and it is he! Hooray!
Avatar 11:05pm Linda Lee:

i would like to know what the Democratic Party is doing about addressing the Crosscheck program that eliminated millions .. literal millions .. of likely Dem voters from the rolls in swing states before the primaries! this was documented at the time! what's the point of organizing the vote if the process has no integrity? (as it really hasn't since the HAVA).
Avatar 11:07pm Linda Lee:

Veronica, you're right on about fear. totally right. beware of that.
Avatar 11:07pm Paul D:

Ooh. I see I've missed some pretty good music on the playlist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm Matt from Springfield:

@Linda: Unfortunate to be a RCMMLTBDUCF, it can get lonely out there for you, but we can help you on that front. Self-care at FMU!

As for confrontations IRL, many of us aren't inclined to speak up when witnessing those - but this is the country and human rights on the line. Speak up to injustices early! Before those cowards gain ability to instill fear and do real damage. NOW is the time to hold those people back.

Casey Spooner of Fischerspooner just released an album produced by Michael Stipe of R.E.M. He's still around.

jesse jarnow is part of sloppy heads, right? gotta mention that. the guy is so cool
Avatar 11:14pm Fox (Rā-chul):

I find it almost annoying that i live in a multi-ethnic and relatively liberal area, so my pressing the community around me won't have the kind of effect that it might have in a more mixed place.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Matt from Springfield:

@Linda: As for the Dem/liberal politics front, write up a case and continually tell it to elected officials. The Homo politicus won't raise issues or fight for principles, if there's no punishment for ignoring them. Press your case to possible allies, reward those who take it up publicly, condemn those who don't! Responding to the public on what truly matters can only help the whole body politic.
Avatar 11:15pm Linda Lee:

thanks for support Matt! i'm not lonely, actually, because the community here is pretty great. i only want stated allies to be ready to put their money where their mouth is, so to speak, when it comes down to it. as well should every individual at the marches yesterday, or they might as well have stayed home & avoided using the gas. i'm very serious.
as for online confrontations, i have no illusions about changing anyone's mind without face-to-face confrontation. anonymity means dishonesty. it's just too easy to be dishonest without actual presence required.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Therese:

Jesse Jarnow is the COOLEST, pp! He is indeed a part of the Sloppy Heads.
Avatar 11:19pm Fox (Rā-chul):

I'm tired of social programs being put on the chopping block as part of compromise between the Republicans and Democrats. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and Food Stamps should be continually expanded to better cover the growing numbers, need, and ability to spread basic livelihood as a human right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm Matt from Springfield:

@Fox: But remember, you are part of many overlapping communities (to include this one, the FS!) It's still worth it to bolster those communities where you live, since a homogenous community won't do much if they're not united in supporting our rights. If your own communities are strong enough, those members who know people from rural communities might be able to help them out better.
Avatar 11:25pm Linda Lee:

we have no opposition to the neo-liberal agenda right now. & the Democratic Party is the new Moderate GOP. i have no use for them, myself. i barely feel we have a government! we have an institutionalized redistribution of public resources into private hands, with the legal means for it widened & secured. & that's all we have. government supposedly protects citizens from foreign & domestic enemies, provides for basic individual sustenance & maintains the necessary infrastructure required for societal cohesion. when these simple functions aren't met we have what's called a failed state. half of us are now officially poor! that's what gave us Trump. desperation! nothing else. & he's just another opportunistic douche bag. ..
Avatar 11:26pm Fox (Rā-chul):

Linda Lee: Yes. Same.
Avatar 11:27pm Linda Lee:

thank you.

Apropos to nothing, but the New York Times has now coined a new term that should be a band name, “Famous Nazi Punchers”: www.nytimes.com...
Avatar 11:28pm Fox (Rā-chul):

Matt: That is a good point. I'm just not sure by whom we are trying to be heard.
Avatar 11:28pm Linda Lee:

i start fires with the times these days. nice big pages.

@Jake: Or like the Anonymous Nazi Puncher the other day - gets the job done just the same ;)
Avatar 11:30pm Fox (Rā-chul):

Money is what gets things done. So until the Disabled, Chronically Ill, &* Poor start an influential lobby, I don't really see how things are going to improve for people like me.
  11:32pm eye in the sky:

Wow! Karl Hendrix Trio! I forgot about them...sounds good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm Matt from Springfield:

@Fox: And that's a trickier part. I would like to convince our communit(ies) members, other possible allies, those in power, even those who disagree but might be won over - and all of whom require slightly different messages to reach.

A lobby like that - promise the .01% that Trumpets/Brexiteers will wreck their plans if they keep ignoring the common peoples needs!
Avatar 11:33pm Linda Lee:

i don't see any reason at all for our desperation to be mitigated under government by corporations. it's too good for business. as is individual isolation!
  11:34pm sugarwolf:

Of all the things my taxes go towards, feeding people seems like a good idea. Hating on food stamps is so dumb.
  11:37pm eye in the sky:

Avatar 11:37pm Linda Lee:

people will hate on whatever they're trained by sophisticated means to hate on. just like those real people who wanted the government out of their Medicare .. they're not using their minds. they're just reacting to stimuli. like plants. ..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Be prepared for lots of alternate facts on welfare / food stamp / immigration numbers, climate change denials, etc. I give them no credibility on anything at this point.
Avatar 11:39pm Linda Lee:

Agree Ken!! it's all up for grabs!! i'm off to heat up some free county food, myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm Chop Scott:

Thanks for the solid company through the airwaves. Cheers Therese!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm Matt from Springfield:

@sugarwolf: Even those who actually have used them still vote for those who hate on food stamps. A long Puritan culture may lead some to be embarassed by using them instead of seeing them as a needing lifeline for whoever might not be earning enough. Has there ever been a Food Stamp Pride march? That's probably too soon to be effective, but any kind of humanizing of FS recepients is needed. Without consistently giving support to them, the haters status-quo will remain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm Matt from Springfield:

And, hooray to all our Pink Fairies demonstrating this weekend!
Avatar 11:42pm Linda Lee:

what does come from the food stamp program is a hell of a lot of revenue for agribusiness! again, the movement from public resources into private hands. it works well with the general trend. so i don't really see the program successfully eliminated. it's a nice rallying point for people who need to feel superior, though.
Avatar 11:44pm Linda Lee:

apparently the GOP plan is to force lots of really horrible shit down the people's throats in order just to keep that trend going .. that's all corporate governance is about .. & then shift all the inevitable blame onto Trump, making it politically feasible to dump his ass overboard.

On the Media did a series on poverty in America that is well worth a listen: www.wnyc.org...

Good podcasts, thanks Therese.
Now, if more could really *listen* to these (not just hear them), these are just the sorts of topics we need more awareness of.
