I always admire those who can verbalize my feelings and reasons much better than I. Tonight I read this article and wanted to share with you.
“Women are the future”
We Can Never Be Complacent!
He was inspired by the march yesterday and I admire the results of his inspiration. Thank you for your art, Matthew.
Artist: , a comic book artist, was so inspired by the marches yesterday he made this. “Women are the future”. Immigrants are the future. LGBTQIA are the future. Equality and human rights are the future. We can’t let the momentum wane and we can NEVER be complacent again.

I’m marching and so is Sylvia Boorstein
I’ve visited her blog and she states exactly what I have been saying for months now. We CANNOT be silent. One voice combined with many can make a difference!
She and I read the same news media the NY Time and Charles M. Blow
“Public pressure has a very real impact on political power. Don’t be silent. Don’t be invisible.” –Charles M. Blow, NY Times
New York Times opinion piece by Charles M. Blow
One by one, violations stack up and yet, nothing it seems, to make a difference to those that have come into a position of power within our country. Ethics, morality, even a conscience to know what is right and wrong has gone out the window and is totally ignored with no regard for anyone other than those in their tight circle of comrades with their own agenda. This path, I believe is a dangerous one for those of us who are left with no champion.
The Logan Act (18 U.S.C.A. § 953 ) is a single federal statute making it a crime for a citizen to confer with foreign governments against the interests of the United States. Specifically, it prohibits citizens from negotiating with other nations on behalf of the United States without authorization.
Congress established the Logan Act in 1799, less than one year after passage of theAlien and Sedition Acts, which authorized the arrest and deportation of Aliensand prohibited written communication defamatory to the U.S. government.The 1799 act was named after Dr. George Logan. A prominent Republican and Quaker from Pennsylvania, Logan did not draft or introduce the legislation that bears his name, but was involved in the political climate that precipitated it.
The Logan Act has remained almost unchanged and unused since its passage. The act is short and reads as follows:
Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly orindirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or anyofficer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of anyofficer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat themeasures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply, himself or his agent, to any foreign government orthe agents thereof for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of itsagents or subjects.
The language of the act appears to encompass almost every communication between a U.S. citizen and a foreign government considered an attempt to influence negotiations between their two countries.
*Interesting Reading on U.S. Uncut by Zach Cartwright
“President-elect Donald Trump’s Russia troubles perfectly encapsulate this phenomenon. The failure of his designated national security adviser, Mike Flynn, to adequately prepare Trump to anticipate devastating intelligence findings about Russia (which Trump did not dare criticize directly) and, more generally, to project strength in his approach to Russia have severely damaged Trump’s image as a competent, resolute commander in chief.”

“Late in the presidential race, Donald Trump warned that his opponent would start a new world war. “You’re going to end up in World War III over Syria if we listen to Hillary Clinton,” he told Reuters.
As it turns out, there was no need to worry about Clinton’s hawkishness. The next world war is already here. It’s a religious war. And the United States is losing.”
Has the man ever heard of this term?
