T won the election by controlled media putting lies lies lies out. Is anyone investigating WikiLeaks and the last batch of emails that dominated the news at the end and turned out to be nothing? Nothing but Putin controlling our election.
What Canadians understand, I hope, is that I'm not “moving to Canada.” I consider myself a refugee. In past five years in three different locations in America- in Chicago, Lancaster, and now Tahoe- I've had hostile menacing neighbors harassing me because I'm a retired journalist who still publishes blogs and letters that are usually progressive and critical of things.
After I spent seven years writing about pedophile priests, and getting used to taking sh-- for my work from demented Catholics, I branched out to criticize all the fucked up stuff in the country, no matter who I insult. It's just something I do. It should not make me feel threatened, not in the USA.
We used to respect the First Amendment and reporters in America but something has changed last few years. When a woman in her sixties feels threatened by her neighbors, it's a sign of something brewing underneath that will be let loose when this new President takes office January twentieth.
So when I arrive in Canada, it will be as a refugee. I will probably live in Air B&Bs and hotels, I'll have my income, I'll spend my money there, but I'm an American who feels compelled to leave my home because of radical political developments that have put me in danger.
I hope Canadians understand that.
trump will probly remove all the safety regs that have kept the private space program from growing. So a lot of guys will blow up on launch pads, but the Space Industry will grow, as everyone rushes to get off the planet
Around February people will begin to wonder where that peaceful transition went, but it will be harder to find out, bk so many First Amendment rights will also have disappeared.
a guy this determined to turn people against journalists has something up his sleeve. First thing a despot has to do is get rid of the journalists.
at least I'm not a lesbian Islamic journalist, then I'd really be in trouble...
I was going to go to the Canadian border with all my stuff in a Uhaul, then realized that might just make it harder to get across...
I wish republicans would remember how shocked and lost they felt when Trump took their primary. Now he's done same to whole country and repubs just shrug and go along.
