[Discussion] What comes next? Liber-all

American liberals and progressives now face their biggest challenge in a generation: What do we do with 4 years of a trump presidency, a republican congress, a likely conservative supreme court and most states under complete republican control?

This thread is not meant as a forum for discussing HOW or WHY democrats got destroyed in the 2016 election. It's meant for finding a way forward.

No worries Cheeze. I know get where you were coming from and realize you weren’t trying to be flippant. This problem does hit home for a lot of folks in that part of the country. My cousin went back just a month ago to help bury one of our mutual classmates after an OD. The dude had just turned 40.

That's so profoundly sad. We're becoming numb to it, but it shouldn't be that common for people that young to die from something that's preventable.

People can stay on Suboxone for years, if necessary, and with proper counseling and supervision can come out the other side. There's just no reason for any of this loss.

Speaking of loss, I’m very sorry to hear that about your mom DS.

Thanks

Sorry to hear about your mom, DS. I spent 10 years working in the social services in Idaho and we referred to it as the "f*ck you" state.

Still a better license-plate motto than New Hampshire's.
