10 Good Things About an Awful Year

From Madea Benjamin: 1. #MeToo movement has empowered victims of sexual harassment and assault, and encouraged accountability. 2. The year has seen an explosion of grassroots organizing, protest, and activism. 3. We're already seeing rebukes of [Donald] Trump at the ballot box. 4. The first group of J20 protesters, people arrested in Washington DC on the day of Trump's inauguration, were found not guilty. 5. Chelsea Manning was released from prison after 7 years. 6. Cities and states have committed to positive climate initiatives, despite federal regression. 7. Trump's presidency has forced a critical national conversation about racism and white supremacy. 8. This was the year the world said no to nuclear weapons. 9. ISIS no longer has a caliphate. 10. Every country rejected Trump's stance on Jerusalem, except Israel.

Darkness arose, and the light to meet it.

I gotta admit, this year has been fantastic for myself 💪🏽.
Hopefully it was similarly fantastic for all y'all.

And don't forget another good thing is you can say this about Trump but if you said this about Obama you were a traitor and anti-American and would be banned from society.

LOL.

I know huh?

Remember back when, long long ago in a Galaxy far far inside of fishpoo's head?

Long haired hippy Liberals ran around in sandals all across the land and while wildly singing Sharia Krishna (or something like that) and banning all them anti-American redneck Nazi's from society.

And that children, is why there are no more rednecks or Nazi's in society anymore.

The End.

The utter melt-down of the hated NY Giants was very satisfying to watch, as was the astronomical rise of my 401K, the tax cut I just received, the conservative Supreme Court judge, the stock market's surge, the decline in illegal immigration, and, best of all, all the sour pusses on my lefty friends' faces, and their bitter confused remarks on anonymous blogs.

Don't forget Roy Moore's defeat. As a reasonable mainstream conservative I am certain you were happy that the pedophile Republican didn't win.

lol

Never rooted or cared for him. Do attorneys always assign positions to others when they don't have anything to say?
