Dear Mr. President, We no longer need your services. (#TheIdesofTrump)

OMG, it was sooo fun to get together with a few other people this afternoon to fire the president of the United States. 
Because, let's face it--no need to wait 90 days--he's just not working out for us.

bink's first Arts & Crafts Resistance Group (ACRG) met this afternoon and we all (five of us) made postcards to put in the mail this Wednesday, March 15, and to post on social media with the hashtag #TheIdesofTrump
"Nonviolent but sassy!"

I was laughing out loud looking at the other people's postcards, and laughter, as we know, releases chocolate into the bloodstream.

So--in lieu of feeding you brownies, here's my series of "You're Fired, Mr. President" postcards. I made them polite because, really, it's no fun being fired, even if you know you aren't up to the job...



I thought about getting on Twitter again so I could post these there, but poking along on the fringes of the Internet is working so well for me, I don't want to mess with success. Despair Management, you know!

The ACRG is meeting next month to make signs for the local branch of the national Science March (Earth Day, April 22).

P.S. Damn. I thought severance was spelled with an "a" but everyone else said, no, it's severence.  I just double-checked, and I was right. 
Hmph. 
That's what you get for going off-line.

I will fix it before I send it off on Weds.

I'd like to see this postcard campaign become a national movement! Really good idea, Fresca.

Hi, Crow: It is a national movement--hosted on Twitter--this one is fairly small (a few thousand people?), but the group says they will organize other group postcard-protests in the future too!

Yikes, just looking at video of an ice tsunami there. Hope you are staying warm!

Looking online I saw lots and lots of very postcards go in the mail for Ides. Too bad the White House will probably burn them--they belong in the Smithsonian!

The organizers estimate we all did indeed send around a million postcards!
(They didn't have a way to count, officially, but they estimate around 97,000 people sent an estimated 10 cards each.)
