Democratic Inquiry OMG Week 1

lease read President Obama’s final farewell email. It has a link to keep getting email updates from him.

Dubbed the anti-inauguration, the Women’s March On Washington was the most successful demonstration since the VietNam war, organized in a short time on the basis of a FaceBook post. The anti-war demonstrations took months of planning and coordination between multiple groups.

The event drew a downtown Wooster crowd estimated at 500 (Daily Record) to 800, 900, 960 (others who were counting.)

Emails were collected, and I am talking with organizers …

Horns were honked in support, voices were raised and signs were held high as a crowd estimated as high as 500 to 600 filled the square around the gazebo in downtown Wooster on Saturday afternoon, January 21, 2017. This was a part of a worldwide protest of the anti-women, anti-human rights campaign, rhetoric and cabinet selections of President Donal Trump.

Wooster and Wayne County, you have made our area proud. Don’t let this be the end, but just the beginning. To enact change, daily pressure has …

I attended a discussion at Lowry Center today with the most diverse group I’ve seen in Wooster, sharing their perspectives on social justice to mark Martin Luther King Day. The Martin Luther King Ceremony at the Presbyterian Church on Bowman. Dinner is at 5, and the ceremony begins at 7. Show your support for King, the local NAACP, and Civil Rights! The food is always good, the choir sounds great (and Shades of Gold from the College of Wooster sound so professional!) the speeches inspirational.

Hope …

Rob Portman Disqualifies Himself From Senate Race – Local Commentary

Rob Portman Disqualifies Himself From Senate Race – Local Commentary

You probably saw this headline and thought this is just typical partisan rhetoric, that each political party says their opponents are not qualified for office. But in the case of Republican Rob Portman, who is in a tight race with former Ohio governor Ted Strickland for the U.S. Senate race, his response to the release of the audio tape where Donald Trump brags about sexually assaulting women (which, by the way, is a crime, not locker-room talk) was simultaneously so pathetic and illegitimate, that he …

Columbus Dispatch Endorses Clinton; First Time Endorsing Dem in 100 Years

Like millions of Americans, The Dispatch editorial board has asked this question more than once: How, in a nation of more than 300 million people, did we end up with two such disliked and distrusted presidential candidates?

At the same time, we worry that this dismaying choice will cause some voters to throw up their hands and pass on this election. We urge voters to do their homework, cut through the half-truths and lies, and go to the polls with facts.

For us, the choice between Hillary …

The Atlantic Endorses Presidential Candidate for Just 3rd Time in 159 Years – Clinton

The Atlantic Endorses Presidential Candidate for Just 3rd Time in 159 Years – Clinton

Today, our position is similar to the one in which The Atlantic’s editors found themselves in 1964 (when they endorsed Lyndon B. Johnson). We are impressed by many of the qualities of the Democratic Party’s nominee for president, even as we are exasperated by others, but we are mainly concerned with the Republican Party’s nominee, Donald J. Trump, who might be the most ostentatiously unqualified major-party candidate in the 227-year history of the American presidency.

These concerns compel us, for the third time since the magazine’s …
