Dear President Obama - Please Help Us Right Now

Dear President Obama,
I know when you were the president elect a pile of steaming dog doo landed in your lap and you immediately took steps, some considered very unorthodox, to save the United States of America from certain doom. You literally saved America.
You have been the greatest president of my lifetime and your watch is almost done but....
There is one last pile of shit left by a pack of Russian Wolfhounds and so many of us fear our democracy may not survive whats to come.
The struggle of being a constitutional scholar implores you to peacefully transfer your power and help your successor succeed. You say The People have spoken.
It's not that cut and dry anymore.
I beg you sir, if there is anything, I mean anything you can do to prevent this man from assuming power, do it. Do it now. We are right behind you. We've got you're back.
America needs you to save it one more time from an abyss perhaps too deep to surmount.
Your Grateful Nation

Maybe This Is How Democracy Ends

The frightening rise of authoritarian populism in the West is a very real, clear and present danger.

The election of Donald Trump has triggered as much wonderment abroad as it has in the United States. David Runciman, a professor of politics at the University of Cambridge, has written in the London Review of Books a provocative reflection on the nature of democracy in the age of Trump: “Is this how democracy ends?” There is much to praise in his essay, including his heavy qualification that we really don’t know for sure if what we are seeing is the end phase of mature Western democracies since we do not have the appropriate historical precedents to be certain.
Runciman is correct; as an admirer of Karl Popper, I believe that there is no such thing as historical determinism, either in the form of the Marxist dialectical process, or in the guise of its mirror image, the invisible hand of laissez-faire. Accordingly there is no surefire way to tell in advance whether Trump, Marine Le Pen or Geert Wilders would spell the end of democracy as we have known it. History, as Popper would tell us, is an open system, full of contingency. Waterloo, the Battle of Britain and Stalingrad were all close-run things.

John Lewis: Trump is not a 'legitimate' president

Washington (CNN)Civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis says he doesn't see President-elect Donald Trump as a "legitimate" commander in chief following Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Elizabeth Warren Gunning for Labor Sec Pick Andrew Puzder

Donald Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Labor, Andrew Puzder, made his millions nickel-and-diming fast food workers as the CEO of Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. His burger chains stole wages, forced employees to work through breaks and off the clock, and even paid their workers less than the minimum wage in some cases. A man whose companies have repeatedly violated labor laws has no business running the agency in charge of protecting 150 million American workers.
Yesterday, Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr workers across the country took to the streets to say NO to Puzder for Secretary of Labor. Watch as I explain my own concerns about Andrew Puzder at a forum with Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr workers earlier this week.
