tassosss: We are not plotting your destruction. Really. (destruction)

I feel like I should have something profound for today. I'm writing this after midnight, so technically it's Inauguration Day already. All I got is solidarity.

We are here. We are with you. We are going to be here, together, for the next four years. And our small community here is not alone. In this week's check in posts folks have been going out and finding others in their communities, too, who are with us too. On Saturday the Women's March and all its sister marches are a world full of people who understand what's at stake and are making their voices heard.

What you can do - is really what not to do

Tomorrow, the current call I've been seeing around for boycotting the Inauguration is don't reward any media format covering it, which means all media on the Internet. Don't go to news sites, don't get on Facebook, don't get on other social media. Those companies are counting those clicks.

If you are on the internet or your computer, [community profile] fandom_stocking has an open invitation to keep filling stockings. It's also fandom's More Joy Day tomorrow.

Saturday Jan 21
If you're planning on attending a Women's March sound off!

I'll be at the one in DC. If you're planning on attending as well and you're not local, please pay attention to all the travel, metro, and road closure info. It's going to be a mad house and getting anywhere is going to take about twice as long (at least) as you think it will.

ETA: If you can't go to a March and still want to participate, the_rck pointed out that there's Disability March

Chin up, everyone. It's on us now.

The worst thing that can happen in a democracy - as well as in an individual's life - is to become cynical about the future and lose hope. - Hillary Clinton

We have hope. Rebellions are built on hope! - Jyn Erso, Rogue One

What the ACA Does for People Insured Through Their Employer.

Because it doesn't just affect people who buy their insurance through the exchanges.

"People who get insurance through their employers – an estimated 150 million Americans – may also lose consumer protections they have come to expect from their job-based plans." [emphasis mine]

That's 46% of the US population! (150 million of about 325 million, if my sources are right).

Add in the 20 million who bought through the exchanges, and you're talking more than 50% of the US population.
