This week’s Good News from the Resistance: Join the fun and help flood the White House with postcards this Wednesday (Ides of March); scientist-resisters save EPA climate change data that 45 wanted deleted; thanks to record donations, ACLU hires scores of lawyers who are working day and night to hit 45 where it hurts; post-election BIGLY surge in progressive women running for office; GOP heavy-hitters resisting 45’s Border Wall; court orders New Orleans to (finally) remove public statues that celebrate racial oppression and slavery; Mexican journalists promise U.S. journalists, “We have your backs.”
Marla’s Resistance Rx: Read the Good News in one fell swoop, then say the Good News mantra out loud: We, the people, have the power to delay, dilute, and defeat “45’s” plans to destroy the America we love. Repeat.
