Saturday Night Protest Party!

This is how I am feeling right now.

Dance like no one's watching.

Sing like no one's listening.

"Insane in the Membrain" - for the orange shitstain known as PEE-OTUS!


What do we the people do?  RESIST!


Get up off your dead asses!  Get up, stand up, stand up for your rights!


What are we fighting for?  R-E-S-P-E-C-T!


You don't believe we're on the eve of destruction?  HELL YEAH!


Stop, children, what's that sound, everybody look what's goin' down!


How many deaths will it take til we know that too many people have died?


For the times they are a-changin'!


It's the hammer of justice, it's the bell of freedom!

QUESTION AUTHORITY!

SILENCE = ACCEPTANCE!  WE ARE NOT SILENT!

THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING!

GET INVOLVED!  MARCH!  PROTEST!  Wear a safety pin so that we the people can identify our friends.

https://www.indivisibleguide.com = go here to learn how you can RESIST!

Also go to www.barackobama.com and ofa.us.  I just did; GET INVOLVED!

As Mistress Maddie says, all politics is local.  The above guide will emphasize that.  So I have started by contacting my state and federal reps/senators.  I praised my federal rep for choosing to NOT participate on 1/20/17.  I have also volunteered my services with my local democratic party.

My late uncle protested against the Vietnam War.  If he could protest, so can I.  AND SO CAN YOU!  WHO'S WITH ME?

  1. But surely, W.Q., Nirvana's on the way!

    (Sorry to get that dig in, but just needed something to make first strike so I retain the 'crown'. I'll come back later and do a more considered response - with no more pouring salt into what is clearly a very deep wound.)

    2. Only by a few minutes, W.Q., but I'm pleased as punch to still have it.

      Whenever I see those pouty lips of he-who-shall-not-be-named (which has been practically daily for several months, and will continue for God knows how long now) I can't help thinking of the tale of the guy visiting a brothel who says to the madam-in-charge "I want to spend an entire night with one of your 'workers', only she HAS to be tight - really, REALLY tight!"
      The madam says "Well, I do believe we've got precisely the kind of young lady you're after. Why don't you go up to Room number 6 and check her out?"
      So up he goes, knocks on the door, goes in, likes what he sees, checks her out - and pays for a forthcoming night of pleasure.
      The following morning, trying to creep sheepishly out of the establishment, he's accosted by the madam.
      "So. Was she tight enough?"
      He, with lips locked into a Trump-like 'O' - "Yoos!"

      Sorry, W.Q., if you understand that story at all (which is quite true, I believe) it must have made you blush deeply - but I just had to get it off my chest as I'm not going to stop thinking about it now - for practically forever! :-)

  2. I would say a good list of appropriately selected songs for what must be for some a dark day in the US. When I still lived there, that show of his had just come on. I thought what a pompous ass. How does a reality star get elected?? Scary. While I don't live in the US anymore, you have my deepest sympathies.

  4. Wow! Great selection Warrior Queen! Yes, everyone, she did not divulge the contents of her Dance Party to me ahead of time...and I blog barely ten feet away from her!

  5. One other thing, if you aren't on Twitter, get on it and Tweet your displeasure to your Congressional representatives.
    It's easy, simple quick; same with Facebook; message them, voice your displeasure, demand they act or vote them out.
    Write them, call them, message them. Join your local party.
    Stand.Up.

    1. Also, if you're on Twitter make sure you're not following POTUS, FLOTUS, VP or WhiteHouse. Twitter made a number of account automatically follow them yesterday, including mine.

      Don't mute or unfollow, because you will be auto-following them again. BLOCK THEM!

    2. bob and rj - not on twitter or fuckbook. I write and call instead.

  8. G'day, W.Q. (For reals this time.)
    A well-considered medley you give us this w/e, all eminently suitable as befits the solemnity of the occasion.

    But apart from all that (of which no further mention for now) hope you are well and bearing up to your more mundane everyday trials. RTG seems to be busy on the blogs so we know that he must be surviving in spite of everything. I trust the 'kids' are doing likewise.

    Looks like Winter's not biting so hard for you so far, which must be a bit of a mercy. Neither is it for us, though nights are a bit frosty and thus feline unfriendly. But we're all getting through - and there's the dim but discernible hope that the remainder of this season may not be unliveable with as we start approaching end of Jan.

    Do have a pleasant rest of weekend.
    'Speak' with you again during coming days or next Sat, whichever comes first.
    Warm huggies to all - and special lovey-dovey whispers to the three little girls.
    Byeeeeee for the time being!

    1. we are surviving; had to get the clothes dryer repaired this morning and RTG went to work.

      I have never been more energized to protest. when vietnam was in full swing, I was but a teenager. now I am an adult and THIS TIME IT'S PERSONAL.

      I see there was a meeting of the alt-right in europe today, led by that french cunt. beware that europe does not fall into the same pit that we have, raybeard. keep vigilant!

      so far winter has yielded only 4 inches of snow on 2 separate days. climate change IS real; the orange shitstain says it ain't.

      RTG and I raise our booze-filled glasses in your direction! the pussies (stoned on catnip) raise their paws.

    2. Re Europe - and the prospect of a 'rise' (again!) -
      I know, W.Q., and that odious Marine Le Penis - sorry, Marine Le Pen is talking in Germany, of all places! - and furthermore, using our own catastrophic Brexit result to justify a claim that her own policies are in the ascendant. The infernal cheek of it! I hope she soon gets a face-to-face with a certain newly inaugurated leader where she'll be told during their vigorous 'intercourse' exactly where to get off. (She might even come away with severely bruised titties and painfully pinched cheek-bottoms if there's any luck.)

      Only congenital cretins and the intellectually-challenged can deny that climate change doesn't exist (a hoax invented by the CHINESE?!?) - so I suppose it figures. It's good that you and I are living at a time when the effects are not having a inconvenience on our own lives - yet - but I do really fear deeply for future generations, and that's from someone who's got no children. Surely those who DO have offspring must ALL be at least as concerned, if not moreso. Oh, but wait a minute......
      (I shouldn't be in the least surprised if a majority of 'your' newly appointed incoming administration deny the notion of evolution as well!)

      Anyway, enough of all this misery, at least for now - and let us rejoice in the company of those we love the most - and I got three of them right now with me, all in the Land of Nod.
      In return for your glass-raising I'll later be proposing a toast of mulled vino to you and yours.
      Enjpy your Sunday, W.Q.

      Delete
    3. (spoken like a movie trailer announcer) "the orange shitstain and the french cunt in a battle to the death!"

      the incoming twats don't believe in climate change, civil rights for all, gay people. they DO believe in jeebus, an imaginary invisible sky daddy. cripes, what idiots!

      Delete
    4. D.T. + Marine Le P = a match made in Heaven, W.Q. At least I hope it is 'cos I've got my sights on the 'other place' - where I expect to find all the gays, and we'll have an eternity of FUN, FUN, FUN till Big Daddy takes the D.T.-dirt away. :-)

    5. :) I wanna go to gayland after death too!

    6. You'd be guaranteed a place of honour - even including organising our 'activities'. But there's one stipulation for you - NO PEEPING!

    8. No, that's what we gays plan on doing - for ever and ever (Amen). :-)
