Dwight D. Eisenhower

And light continues to struggle to shine in darkness as the assault continues. I usually don't use 2 quotes in one blog, but our anti-president as a descendent of Republican presidents should do some reading of quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower who also said, "You don't lead by hitting people over the head, that's assault not leadership." 

This am I awoke to find out that new sweeping executive orders were signed which began to marginalize Muslims and favor Christians which some may say I'm simplifying but it's there in the text of the orders.  I don't support extreme right wing doctrine of any religion and do agree about vigilance in those cases where any religion is used to promote violence, but to tar and feather a whole group of people because of the actions of some people goes against every thing we are supposed to be about here.  I  support the right to worship in this country according to the laws of our constitution which promises freedom of religion. What's next burning of witches?

It's been a week since the march, but voices are raising and will continue to. We (I) can't keep quiet.

MILCK, 'Quiet':
