Protestors... thanks!

I wanted to acknowledge the awesome protests that happened this past weekend. The people that mobilized on Saturday night to protest the Muslim ban (and yes, it is a "Muslim" "ban"; Trump defenders have contested both words) are really amazing. I think it's incredible how such protests were organized at difficult to reach places (airports) all over the country. I've seen it said that OWS, BLM, and the Bernie movement have created infrastructural bootstraps that make this sort of thing possible, and i think that's awesome too. And kudos to the ACLU and to the taxi union for their solidarity strike.

I don't normally just do gushing posts like this but i haven't had anything to blog since the Russia post. To people with a binary/partisan view, the Russia post might feel like a "defense" of Trump, and that's not the case at all. I just think it's way off base to attack Trump over paranoid conspiracy theories when there is plenty of tangible stuff to judge him by.
