I made a list of all the topics I want to post about and boy it got long. Since its going to take me quite a bit of time to get through it all, I wanted to give you a heads up as to where I’m headed. I’m probably going to tackle these on a rotating basis, giving my analysis of the situation and challenges interspersed with what you can do on both a short and long-term basis.
For the first time in my life, I’m about to become politically active. I might not do everything on my topic list, but I’m going to do a bunch of them. I hope the list inspires you to do the things you are able to as well. Not everyone has to do everything, but I hope that those who are as upset with this election as I am will do something. (and unfortunately posting on Facebook and Twitter, especially to our echo chambers is not enough).
A listing of every post I make will be available on the Lists of Posts Page. This will enable you to see the posts in the order they were made (since blog posts can get lost). Some of the titles below will be split up into multiple posts because there are so many topics to cover and they won’t necessarily be in this order.
