    Watch the actions more than words, always. Trust your reality. Talk and follow real people. And remember you are not paranoid if they are really out to get you

    My heart is breaking for all of us right now, as a nation.
    I love your last sentence, Tybee.......I feel the same way, even with my issues with this country. Beyond what I may or may not think, we as a nation could be doing so much better.....Rob

    Who are 'they'? And why do they want to 'get you'?

    They are all the people trump put in his cabinet for the purpose of destroying the agencies they lead, rather than leading the agency in it's stated goal. Like an EPA head who doesn't seem inclined to protect the environment or a secretary of education who has zero experience with public schools. Or a head of the justice department that isn't interested in civil rights. Why they want to get us, I'm not entirely sure. In most cases, but not all, I'd imagine following the money would provide the answers. In the cases where it's not amount the money I imagine it's either about following the jesus or following the racism.

    Oh, so it's definitely not paranoia then.

    Some slight of hand, a little smoke and a few mirrors and *poof* (wealth transfer complete).

    "Attorney General Jeff Sessions has reversed a three-year-old Justice Department policy that protected transgender workers from discrimination under federal law.

    In a memo to his U.S. attorney offices and agency heads, Sessions said that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 does not protect transgender people from workplace discrimination by private employers and state and local governments."

    The lunatics are at it again. We need to drain the WH and get back to respecting everyone. This administration just keeps being more awful everyday.

    Yes--the evil little elf has his sights set on gay people, cannabis users, and the undocumented, in no particular order.
