(90)

How about fighting some of the ridiculous cabinet appointments Trump is making.

(91)

Dear people enforcing these unconscionable and illegal orders: Historically, "I was only following orders" has not been a solid defense.

(92)

There is something more important and powerful than all three branches of government. It is you – the people.
