"I know that it can feel like we are all drowning in a deluge of compounding outrages, with every headline about this impending administration appearing to one-up the last, but take heart.
You may have been on the losing side of this year's election, but you are on the right side of history. In the final tally, courage will always defeat fear; love will always conquer hate; the beautiful diversity of America, and indeed all of humanity, will always outshine the darkness of racial enmity.
This is the reason I write, to remind people of honor and courage; to tell them that their cause isn't lost, that their destiny is victory."
~Charles M. Blow from his New York Times OpEd, "Patriotic Opposition to Donald Trump"
Sometime in September, I renamed my rooster. I had been calling him Scooter-roo, but when he became increasingly brutal to the five hens entrusted to his care, leaving their backs bloodied and featherless, I decided to call him Donald T-rump.
Sadly, Donald T-rump's unwelcome sexual advances went beyond brutal, culminating in his murder my favorite hen, Carmelita.
Justice is simple here at the ranch. If one of the animals attempts or succeeds at taking the life of one the other critters, it is segregated or dispensed. Donald T-rump's carcass was left out in the woods, an offering to the wild things.
It took several weeks before the three remaining hens healed, gained weight, and stopped looking over their shoulders for the nasty-roo. Little Red Hen was in the worst shape. As you can see from this snapshot, she's looking marvelous.
"The thing that I have always been convinced of, the running thread through my career, has been this notion that when ordinary people get engaged, pay attention, learn about the forces that affect their lives and are able to join up with others, good stuff happens.” ~President Barack Obama
