Well, this has been fanfuckingtastic so far

So, yeah, any thoughts I had that this administration would just be mediocre and we could muck through it lasted about 3 seconds.

I realize I don’t really have the skills to fix this, and the Democrats don’t have the numbers (or sometimes it seems the will – WTF) to stop a lot of this crap, so I’m directing my money to groups that do have the skills to fix this through the courts and other avenues.  Cause it’s all going to end up the courts.

If you’d told me 25 years ago, “You’re going to turn in an old liberal hippie who gives money to the ACLU” I probably would not have believed you.  But right now, I couldn’t be happier about the money I sent to the ACLU last week because I could see it actually made a difference at airports across the country this week.

I’ve read that to stay sane, you should focus on one or two issues.  I can’t do that.  It would probably be healthier if I could, but I can’t.

I’ve made a list of groups I’m supporting – thanks to John Oliver for starting this list on his Last Week show.  Feel free to let me know of other groups I may have missed.  (They are in no particular order.)

ETA: If anyone knows of any solid disability rights organizations, please chime in.

ACLU
Planned Parenthood
Center for Reproductive Rights
Natural Resources Defense Council
The International Refugee Assistance Project
NAACP Legal Defense Fund
The Trevor Project
Mexican American Legal Defense & Educational Fund

    I’m trying to figure out the best disability rights organizations, but there don’t seem to be obvious options. If anyone knows of something, please share.
