No Faces, No Names...







Please be advised that our text and margins are all wonky!



We have a very different post this weekend.

We were busy on Valentines Day (and the following several days) working on an art  project with
students, many of whom have family members who are undocumented or are here with visa's or those
who have come here as refugee's, who are understandably frightened and anxious what
with all of the current rhetoric about deportation and refugee bans and ICE raids that are taking place right now.

So, we got kids and crayons together along with three hundred feet of white butcher paper to help
them make a visual statement to send to local  politician's.
We decided that due to the potential for some type of retribution directed at those who participated or their families we would have to do the whole project in anonymity, hence the no faces, no names, title.
What started out as three hundred feet of blank paper, over three days turned into a breath taking and
inspiring work of art with powerful messages.

We decided to share a tiny fraction of their work with you...


Have a wonderful weekend,

Three weeks into making America great again....


                                    Are we there yet?





Well, no.

First it was; "give him time he's only been in office a week".
Then, "come on, he's only been in for two weeks".
Then; "look, it's only the third week".

So I guess this is the new conversation....

"give him a break he's only been in office a month,
"6 months."
"It's only his first year"
"It's just the first term."


This past three weeks has been the equivalent of a roller coaster ride gone horribly awry.

If we were to try and address every one of the administration's miss steps we'd have a post that was hundreds of pages long.

So, we are taking baby steps...


This week...

Nordstrom's and free enterprise vs. Donald Trump;

Ivanka Trumps clothing is all made in China, Nordstrom's is an American company that employs thousands of workers so who's really getting hurt by 45's tweets?

American workers!

If Ivanka's line isn't selling, whether it's due to boycotts or it's just not that popular and the president is out there telling people how bad the company is for hurting his daughters feelings, workers might be laid off or let go.

Yet, 45 is out there tweeting along with pitches by Kelly Ann Conway and  Sean Spicer and they are coming down hard on free enterprise.

Make America what again?

This appears to be another example of how 45's only interest is to promote himself and his family and their business interests and leave the country to fend for its self.

Can you say conflict of interest?

Oh, but there's so much more...




Have a wonderful weekend!
