In a mere 12 days, illegitimate president Donald Trump has done more damage to the Republic than Richard Nixon did in six years. It has been a whirlwind of dysfunction. And it's been purposely so. Why? To tire us, to confound us, to make us throw up our hands in despair.
But we won't. And part of how we do that is to pause, reflect, and catch our breath. Of course we'll talk about politics in this thread. But I'd also like us to talk about the things we're doing to stay centered in the maelstrom.
In that vein, I present as your background music Ludovico Einaudi.
This is your open thread.
