It's food designed to be shared.

Sounds socialist to me.

I'm really scared there's historical precedence that a government such as has been elected will pass legislation that will limit, roll back, limit, and prevent the human and civil rights of much of my friends and family.

In addition, such legislation, and even the debate of such, will continue to set a social context that will treat my friends and family as lesser, and indeed strengthen it.

Pretty much just this exact thing.
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

So I don't know what you think you are saying there but what I am actually hearing is that you are one of those good 'ole boys who harasses whichever group you think it is ok to hassle and then accuses them of having no sense of humour.

No. That is not what I think I am saying.

But now that you mention it, isn't that exactly what you guys do?

Muslim registry
Elimination of Trans* rights
Overturning Obergefell v. Hodges
Massive restrictions on abortion

If you're concerned about these things happening, I would suggest looking up arguments about the likelihood of any of them actually happening. Diversify your information sources. Maybe even examine arguments for them so you can better know where the people making them are coming from. The only way to fight against something you don't agree with is to understand it first.

This is how you change fear into action.

Anyone who is afraid can either lump Trump and the people who voted for him into one big pile of inhuman garbage and hope that calling them Nazis to their faces will somehow cause them to suddenly agree with your worldview, or step out of the echo chamber and conquer cowardice by realizing that being afraid is exactly what the Powers That Be want from both sides.

Do you want to sit inside a closed room with your friends and hate the world, or do you want to venture outside of your paradigm and change the way people think?

I think it's admirable that you kids still want to participate, but I think I prefer having you in Time Out.
