Compulsive believers

Kept seeing this quote and finally found out where it came from. It's a Guardian article. 

"Compulsive liars shouldn’t frighten you. They can harm no one, if no one listens to them. Compulsive believers, on the other hand: they should terrify you. Believers are the liars’ enablers. Their votes give the demagogue his power. Their trust turns the charlatan into the president. Their credulity ensures that the propaganda of half-calculating and half-mad fanatics has the power to change the world."

What happened today?

Here's another 'what's happening' website.

One thing I've learned over the past couple of presidencies is that few people can remember what things were like 'before'. The flood of people saying 'this is not normal' as things happened over the first few days of 45's presidency was...not normal. It's worth memorializing these things so we can assess what has happened - even if it's become normal by then - for the midterms in 2018.

Two weeks in

I'm not seeing as many daily 'what's happening' posts on Facebook, or I'd post them. Jeff Mueller is posting them daily on his blog, but I can't work out how to contact him to copy them here.

For the time being, you can read them there

I may crack and just copy them all later.
