and like it or not to the victor belong the spoils

…Hindsight is 20/20 whereas foresight is daunting at best… “WE” voted for CHANGE but “WE” chose not to question the scope of CHANGE nor the attitude of the CHANGE … and like it or not to the victor belong the spoils…

…And is Trump really the enemy or does the fact he marches to a vastly different drummer ad beat that “WE” find so incredibly challenging….????


Donald Trump Is Not the Enemy We Prepared For


Andrew Reszitnyk, Truthout: Trump and his backers don’t simply want to reverse the train of social progress; they want to throw it off the tracks. So it’s extremely important that progressives don’t let fear prevent us from the essential work of activism and coalition-building necessary to counter their agenda. ………Read the Article

Donald Trump wants Republicans to repeal the Affordable Care Act immediately and replace it "shortly thereafter," he told The Times

Tuesday, January 10, 2017 1:40 PM EST


President-elect Donald J. Trump pressed Republicans on Tuesday to move forward with the immediate repeal of the Affordable Care Act and to replace it very quickly thereafter, saying, “We have to get to business. Obamacare has been a catastrophic event.”

Mr. Trump’s position undercuts Republican leaders who want a quick vote to repeal President Obama’s signature domestic achievement but who also want to wait as long as two to three years to come up with an alternative. But he was also challenging the resolve of nervous Republicans in Congress who do not want any vote on a repeal until that replacement exists.

Mr. Trump, who seemed unclear about the timing of already scheduled votes in Congress this week, demanded a repeal vote “probably some time next week,” and said “the replace will be very quickly or simultaneously, very shortly thereafter.”
