Every Day, in Some Small Way, Resist

Lots and lots to relate about my activities in D.C., from the inauguration to the march, from arrival to departure. But I'm too tired for that, as, math brain still kind of functioning, I realize I have slept a grand total of 19 hours out of 129. But, tired as I am, I still did a little thing today. Won't everyone reading this do the same to #resist #VOTUS (Voldemort Of The United States)?

Feel free to customize and send your very own email (with the subject line RE: Audit for President Trump's Financial Concerns) to: siggerudk@gao.gov, minnellit@gao.gov and congrel@gao.gov.

Dear Ms. Siggerud and Mr. Minnelli,


I know this won't possibly stand out in a crowd among what I hope are a blizzard of messages from like-minded Americans. It's not going to stop me, though, from saying anything. In fact, as the protest sign I made on November 12, 2016, and have carried with me from my little Northern California burg to Washington, D.C., said itself on Saturday, "I can NOT sit down. I will NOT shut up." (I was also there for the inauguration. One of the very few people actually not watching on a big screen TV. Actually, one of the very few people there at all.)


I am in full support of Senator Elizabeth Warren's request for an audit of our illustrious new president's finances, to prohibit conflicts of interest that would prevent him from carrying out the responsibilities of the office without corrupt influence. I have no expectation that such an audit will stop the obvious shenanigans that are already going on, but maybe someone over in your neck of the woods could stem the flow. Stand with Badlands National Park, folks, and #resist.

Sincerely,
