I wish somebody would tell us what the Democrats are supposed to do about being outvoted in both houses of Congress?
I know what they can't do. Win any vote that divides along party lines. That's the obvious one.
But they also can't make us feel like Donald Trump isn't president and the GOP doesn't hold all the cards. And they can't make us feel good about that or make us feel less worried, less anxious, less depressed, less frustrated…
And they can't make those of us who are inclined to do so to stop looking for comfort, reassurance, and validation from sources outside ourselves. And they definitely can't make us feel good about ourselves or about being who we are.
That's what religion's for.
