ng_moonmoth: 45 ohms, 0.05% tolerance (not in my country)
[personal profile] solarbird is accumulating and posting daily an impressively comprehensive collection of links to articles concerning the present administration's effort to implement a fascist police state. If you find this abhorrent, and would like to better inform yourself, whether to take action or simply to be better prepared to deal with the effects, the link posts are tagged "fascism watch" on LiveJournal and Dreamwitdth.

People who will be much happier if this country resumes moving toward what it could be, rather than what it has become: please help by boosting the signal as far and wide as you can. The more people who read the linked articles, the more prominent they will become in the search engine results. And that's a great way to help flush the fake news back down into the sewer from which it emerged.

The Woman of the House was a bit under the weather, and not willing to get up early and stand around in inclement weather, so we took a pass on the local Women's March. Instead, we went and threw money at a story about African-American women succeeding, to tweak the nose of an incoming administration which has shown contempt for women and African-Americans.

Go see "Hidden Figures".  Note carefully all the overt crap the characters endure, and how they find ways to avoid letting it grind them down. Keep a close eye out for all the stuff that still happens, more than fifty years after the time the movie was set in. If you were around at the time, watch for all the little things that happen that were Just Not Done then. If you can, take someone who was born late enough to believe we were Past All This (even though anyone who isn't of a favored whatever-you-like can easily tell you how far from that we still are), talk with them about those little things, and share with them how difficult doing even those little things was.

And then contemplate what damage can be wrought by people reinstating these forms of oppression under color of apparent public and govenmental approval, and what you are willing to do to oppose their aims.

Not in my town. Not in my state. Not in my country.
