Or Maybe Not: Shell and the Arctic

G+: Or Maybe Not: Shell and the Arctic

I may choose to buy gas at Shell despite my sympathies with the Seattle "kayaktivists" but ride my bike for shorter errands, as an act of political defiance. I already have very low weekly mileage as a result of working from home; I only drive myself for grocery errands, church, and such. Hm.

Sore Winner Syndrome

G+: Sore Winner Syndrome

It's not enough that Trump won. Only total submission to the Cult of Trump will placate his most rabid supporters.

Therefore, RESIST. Assert your right to your opinion. Defend truth, uphold reality, claim the normal high ground. This administration won't be normal.
