8,000 the estimate in Eureka, breaking the record for a Humboldt County demonstration established by the anti-Iraq invasion protest in 2003 which was estimated at 5,000.  Protest in Washington DC far outnumbered the body count of the inauguration.  3 to 4 million marched in nearly 400 cities across the country.  Demonstrations all over the world, including what may be the first ever protest in Antarctica.

I’ll put up some photos I took later on.  But the thing was huge!  It filled the streets from C Street to the Adorni.  Figuring out of county visitors, basically about 1 in 20 Humboldt County residents marched today, and that’s amazing!  I had thought about going to the Bay Area, but it was great to see so many friends in attendance.

Why are Trump supporters still complaining?

McGuire is proposing legislation. LoCo covers.

So will Trump just give up California entirely the next time around?

Is there a federal primacy argument?

I mean really!

Apparently some Republicans are in a panic.

“Republicans took the first steps to repeal the Affordable Care Act last week using a process known as reconciliation, which only requires a simple majority vote to pass in the Senate. But Republicans know that they will need Democratic support to replace Obamacare.

“They want to be able to claim this is part of a good faith negotiation, but it’s simply not.They have no idea what comes next so they want some bipartisan cover for their nonsense behavior,” Schatz said.

He also said Republicans were looking for Democratic cooperation so that they can share the blame.”

Don’t tell me elections don’t make a difference!  This would not have happened if McCain or Romney had been elected.  In fact, it may not have happened if Clinton had won in 2008!

Now let’s hope he pardons Peltier!

Thanks especially to NAACP President Liz Smith and Chief Andy Mills for putting together a unified event which involved a broad cross-section of community in participation.  I hope this becomes a permanent thing, and maybe spreads to other cities and places.  I was coming from out of town, dropped my kids off at the march shortly after it left the police station, then met everyone at the end.  I managed to take a few shots as the march came in to the Adorni Center.  Sorry about the glare of the sun.

Why did so many rural working class voters sit out the election or vote for Donald Trump? Coal country anti-poverty activist Nic Smith will join Eric Kirk to discuss the problem of classism in the American progressive movements with emphasis on the stigmatization of Appalachian coal country working class people.

I’ve been out of the media loop so I don’t know what’s in it.  I did see the Buzzfeed dump.  But Trump’s antics this morning have me curious!

This guy did the inaugural announcing for free through 11 Presidents before Trump decided to fire him and replace him with a Trump sycophant.  Seriously, politics aside, what an asshole!  The guy’s wife of 65 years had just died a few weeks ago and he was focusing on doing a really good job for Trump, and then he was fired.  By email!

More about the remarkable man tossed aside as disposable.
