A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22am Passaic River Blues:

On Election Day, a cashier at the Duane Reade near Battery Park I go to near daily told me that her young biracial daughter came home from school on Monday crying because her classmates were saying if Trump won he'd make it so white and black people won't be allowed to live together. I spoke to this woman again yesterday, and she said her daughter was distraught listening to the early results Tuesday evening but the family was trying to reassure her. It was when I was recounting to my wife about these conversations when I felt the lowest about the election. All these kids are hearing the hateful message loud and clear: you are a problem and you are reviled. Listening to the love-oriented programming of Duane yesterday and Trouble this morning have been the only salves. Thank you, Trouble!
  10:24am paper nautilus:

Buddha is there! Took a picture for a couple that had just gotten engaged in his presence this past summer. Thank you trouble for this perfect set. So happy I can listen to it again and again in the archive!
Avatar 10:29am Trouble:

thank you paper nautilus for reporting from the fields of RI! and thank you passaic river blues for sharing that. I want to respond to this election by going high, not low, to build tremendous community instead of wanting to just burn it all down.
  10:31am sugarwolf:

One of the local papers printed an article about the bullying effect on children that Trump and this election has had. It was based on a study by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Someone wrote a letter to the editor complaining that SPLC is hate group funded by George Soros. UHHH.

I don't know how many people here are from immigrant families, but I am first American born and I can assure you the casual schoolyard bullying for things like this is utterly real.

And not to be a complete downer but immigrants who have been here more than 1 generation are typically the harshest on new immigrants for being too "off the boat." That's why organizations like "Latinos for Trump" exist.

Hate has no bounds and can't recognize themselves in others s.

Michael Moore
Yesterday at 10:13am ·

Morning After To-Do List:
1. Take over the Democratic Party and return it to the people. They have failed us miserably.
2. Fire all pundits, predictors, pollsters and anyone else in the media who had a narrative they wouldn't let go of and refused to listen to or acknowledge what was really going on. Those same bloviators will now tell us we must "heal the divide" and "come together." They will pull more hooey like that out of their ass in the days to come. Turn them off.
3. Any Democratic member of Congress who didn't wake up this morning ready to fight, resist and obstruct in the way Republicans did against President Obama every day for eight full years must step out of the way and let those of us who know the score lead the way in stopping the meanness and the madness that's about to begin.
4. Everyone must stop saying they are "stunned" and "shocked". What you mean to say is that you were in a bubble and weren't paying attention to your fellow Americans and their despair. YEARS of being neglected by both parties, the anger and the need for revenge against the system only grew. Along came a TV star they liked whose plan was to destroy both parties and tell them all "You're fired!" Trump's victory is no surprise. He was never a joke. Treating him as one only strengthened him. He is both a creature and a creation of the media and the media will never own that.
5. You must say this sentence to everyone you meet today: "HILLARY CLINTON WON THE POPULAR VOTE!" The MAJORITY of our fellow Americans preferred Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. Period. Fact. If you woke up this morning thinking you live in an effed-up country, you don't. The majority of your fellow Americans wanted Hillary, not Trump. The only reason he's president is because of an arcane, insane 18th-century idea called the Electoral College. Until we change that, we'll continue to have presidents we didn't elect and didn't want. You live in a country where a majority of its citizens have said they believe there's climate change, they believe women should be paid the same as men, they want a debt-free college education, they don't want us invading countries, they want a raise in the minimum wage and they want a single-payer true universal health care system. None of that has changed. We live in a country where the majority agree with the "liberal" position. We just lack the liberal leadership to make that happen (see: #1 above).

Let's try to get this all done by noon today.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57am Ike:

Democrats needed a narrative. We needed to talk more about the white working class ravaged by meth. We didn't. That opened us up to the "Democrats are all about identity politics!" narrative from the right. We got complacent and thought MI would just vote with us no matter what. They didn't. People need to go to MI, PA, WI, etc. and talk to people there and make connections and organize and BE READY when Trump's trade wars and big tax cuts for corporations turn the whole country into Kansas.
