Top Political Books @Trump

I made the Top 5 Political Books About Donald Trump list! I’m number 3!!!

The review says: “Using movie villains to expose the cruel policies of Trump is a brilliant way to explain and appeal to the Millennials–our next generation of voters! Easy to understand! And FUNNY! DarthTrump, Trumpenstein, TrumpFace, and more. FANTASTIC ARTWORK!”

Okay, I’m the one who wrote that list. Me, Lima Bravo, the author of Douchebag Wisdom: Dealing with Donald Trump. But in my defense, it’s a really good book and will help people understand the damage Trump is doing to the country and the world. The movie villain references simply make it easy to read.

This is a MUST READ for anyone who DIDN’T vote in the 2016 or 2018 elections. Immigrants are under assault. Women are under assault. LGBTQ people are under assault. African Americans are under assault. Vets! Old people! Poor people! The damage wrought by Trump and the GOP will be with us for generations unless we rise-up and act.

Step-up! Speak-up! Douchebag Wisdom will help you figure out how. Read all of these books and get inspired!

My Time, Body, and Choice

#FightLikeAMother

There is no love stronger or fiercer than a mother’s love. We will fight to protect our babies at all costs. Ever been to a pee-wee soccer game when the coach didn’t play your kid? All jokes aside. Motherhood triggers that recessive “protector gene” we never knew we had until we witnessed another human come from our nether parts: a miracle unto itself.

BUT!

Motherhood is a sacred bond—beautiful when life is sending you lemonade—BUT A CATASTROPHIC BLOW when you’re being pelted by rotten stink-bombs and the timing is not right. Birthing a baby is no small commitment. Raising a child—especially given the violence we’re witnessing against children–is a life-altering commitment. It’s the height of privilege to think we can make that decision for anyone else, let alone someone who finds themselves pregnant without planning for it.   

Fight like a Mother means you’ll fight to CHOOSE when you’ll bring a baby into this world. You fight for MY right, and HER right, and the rights of MY children, and HER CHILDREN, and the rights of CHILDREN everywhere to make up their own minds!

My time, body, and choice!
#StandWithPlannedParenthood

Each of us must be allowed to choose when we are ready to have a baby.

Each of us must have complete sovereignty over our own bodies. It is not up to YOU. And it most certainly is NOT up to a bunch of old, white men who need a slap on the face and a kick in the balls to remind them to keep their hands off of what’s mine!

I stand with Planned Parenthood. I stand with Lady Liberty. And I stand will all women across the globe. It’s MY time, MY body, and MY choice.

Woman are not property. You cannot deny us access to birth control and then force us to bear babies. You do not control us. We will fight like our children’s lives depend on it, because they do.

I GET TO CHOOSE when I’m ready to be a Mother. Until then, I will fight like one.
