The question is: What are we — the vast majority of Americans — going to do about this?
First and most importantly, do not give up. That’s what they would like us to do. Then they’d have no opposition at all. Powerlessness is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Please do not succumb to it.
Second, in the short term, contact your senators and urge them to oppose Mr. Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court.
If your state has a Republican senator, you might mobilize and organize your friends and neighbors to do whatever they can to get that senator to reject Mr. Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. Or, at the least, postpone consideration of that nominee until after the midterm elections, so there’s a chance to change the composition of the Senate.
Third, make a ruckus. Demonstrate. Engage in nonviolent civil disobedience. Fight lies with truth. Join the resistance.
Many grassroots organizations are doing great work, and could use your help. Among them are: @IndivisibleTeam, @swingleft, @UpRiseDotOrg, @MoveOn. @Sister_District, and @flippable_org. I’m sure I’ve left out many others. Check with your friends, and check online.
Fourth, don’t engage in divisive incrimination over “who lost” the 2016 election. There’s no point in Hillary Clinton loyalists, Bernie Sanders supporters, Jill Stein voters, and others turning on one another and blaming each other for the outcome. We must be united.
Fifth, vote this Nov. 6 for people who will stand up to the Trump Republicans’ rampage. Mobilize and organize others to do so, too. If you live in a blue state, contact friends and relatives in red states and urge them to do the same.
Sixth, help lay the groundwork for the 2020 presidential election so that even if Trump survives Robert Mueller’s investigation and a possible impeachment proceeding, he will not be re-elected.
Finally, bear in mind that this fight will be long and hard. It will require our patience, our courage and our resolve. Yet the stakes could not be higher. We’re talking about the future of our democracy, and the well-being of our children and our children’s children.

It’s obvious the USA federal government has no procedures, policies or protocols to reunify the families already separated & held in Detention. It is up to us.
We are all witnessing the humanitarian crisis unfolding at our southern border as images and sounds of crying children in obvious distress have finally surfaced. Since April. when the Trump Administration implemented the “Zero Tolerance” policy to arrest and charge immigrants crossing illegally between official ports of entry, an estimated 2300 children have been displaced from their families. Although President Trump reversed his own Family Separation policy today, much confusion exists about reuniting the children already taken by the Department of Homeland Security and placed into a hodgepodge network of shelters, tent cities and foster homes.
Complicating everything is the apparent lack of planning and the woefully inadequate resources to help families find and reunite with their children after their cases have been adjudicated. In some cases, parents have already been deported back to their home countries while their children remain in custody somewhere in the United States. Little or no thought has been given to what happens to these families afterward. The very real possibility exists that many of these children will never be reunited with their mothers and fathers.
Long-tail Hashtag Searches on Twitter
Example: a Mother & Father looking for their child & the people helping your child to find you are hampered by disjointed agencies not communicating let alone sharing their data.

Different parameters than Boolean Searches; instead Twitter uses hashtags, underscores.

“While Julian Assange has been holed up at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for the last 6 years to avoid prosecution and is now allegedly being held incommunicado for violating a written agreement to “not send messages that interfere with other states”, we have jumped into the vacuum and created WeakiLeaks.com in his image.

As students across America prepare for the March 4 Our Lives on March 24, 2018, the NRA will greet them with talking points which may sound reasonable but are really circular arguments that cannot be won. This meme is one of them.
Let’s parse it: If guns kill people, then pencils misspell words, cars drive drunk and spoons make people fat. The point of this argument is that guns, pencils, cars, spoons are inert objects that can’t do anything by themselves. Only the person wielding the object determines if it’s used responsibly or irresponsibly, for good or ill.
This “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” premise falls apart quickly when you consider the following statistics based on years of gun violence research.
A gun in the home increases the chance of being killed by firearms 72%.
A gun in the home is responsible for a vast majority of children killed by firearms.
A gun in the home is 22 times more likely to be used in a suicide, homicide or accident than to be used for self-defense.
A gun in the home triples the risk of homicide.
A gun in the home increases the likelihood of suicide five-fold.
An abused woman is 6 times more likely to be murdered if there is a gun in the home.
