Protest fatigue. 2/2 

@robdaemon yes. I agree completely. And the corporate establishment has gone out of its way to make sure people have to work 60 hours a week for low pay so they don't have time or money to attend protests.

Protest fatigue. 2/2 

Unless the protests involve tens of millions of people I don't think anyone will be paying attention, so I don't believe protest even has any point anymore. Our government just isn't listening.

Keep that in mind when you feel like putting all of your emotional energy into marching and such.

Protest fatigue. 1/2 

Protest fatigue... It's a thing. I'm pretty sure when Trump came into office it was part of the plan from the get-go. Do is many objectionable things as possible A) because they were assholes, and B) because then there simply won't be enough people or time to protest all of the things they're doing, and the protests will be completely ineffective. This will also be the GOP's modus operandi when they sweep the elections in November and in 2024.

Still haven't found the missing microphone. I wonder where it is...

Oh cool. The museum left me a card and a restaurant gift certificate on my final day here.

I borrowed my sister-in-law's car and ran errands to buy supplies for my trip south. A few things for me and a few things for the cat.

@Karen5Lund I'm just watching movie channels. Willy Wonka is on.

I just borrowed my sister-in-laws car to run errands to get supplies for when I move.

But I'm purposely not tuning in to new channels.

SCOTUS 

@joeo10 Yep. It's been my prediction since I saw how easily the GOP adopted Trumpism. It's going to be ugly. Arm yourself.

I want to read Terrence Mann's book about what was in the cornfield.

@chronrevisited hopefully you're taking the hiatus because you're meeting with Stewart to talk about when production of the new episodes will start.

Folks who've never read "Unskilled and unaware of it: how difficulties in recognizing one's own incompetence lead to inflated self-assessments." Citing the Dunning-Kruger effect to diss folks, who they believe themselves to be smarter than, lack any sense of irony.
