Action: Montana Special Election

There's currently a Special Election being held in Montana, to replace Ryan Zinke, who Trump tapped as Interior Secretary. The polls close on May 25th. The Democratic candidate, Rob Quist, is pretty awesome -- a folk singer who ends his rallies with songs he's written, with a career in public service, a staunch opponent of privatizing public lands, pro single payer health system (and very strongly so -- he went into debt because of a botched surgery that left him ineligible for affordable health insurance), and pro-choice.

The Democratic establishment was initially bent on ignoring him, considering the race a sure loss, while Republicans PACs poured millions to prop up their candidate, the cardboard cut-out plutocrat Gainforte. But Quist continued drawing huge crowds to his rallies, raised much more money via small donors than anyone expected him to, and the establishment and media finally started taking notice.

They're now calling this race a referendum on Trump's presidency and policies. I think they're right to characterize it this way. The GOP nominee Gainforte had previously run for governor in 2016. But at that time, he'd distanced himself from Trump, going so far as to refuse to attend Trump's rally. He lost the race for governor in a state that Trump won by 20 points. Now he's turned into a die-hard Trump booster, believing that no matter what happens, just like before, the majority of voters in his district will continue blindly supporting Trump, and tear down anyone who doesn't.

Strategists believe Gainforte holds a single-digit lead, but there have been no official polls done, and the margin of error going either way is high. A GOP loss could have a large impact on things such as the American Health Care Atrocity, Congress braking the country's slide to autocracy, etc. (It took a special election in 1974 to convince Washington that Nixon had become toxic.)

Anyway, I'm really hoping for a win, both because I think the candidate is amazing, and because of what it would mean.

You can donate to Quist's campaign here.

*

ETA: A group of 40 Montana writers distributed an insert in local Montana papers endorsing Quist. In their own words -- "In an unprecedented show of unity, more than forty of Montana’s best writers have gathered, in rapid response fashion, to write original essays and testimonials advocating for the protection of our public lands, and endorsing Democratic House of Representatives candidate Rob Quist’s position on this (literally) most common ground of issues."

Excerpt:
It’s possible, even useful, to think of these places instrumentally: wild lands make for clean water which makes for good fishing which is good for tourism, etc. There are sound practical reasons to preserve our wilderness. But these are not my reasons. I want to be touched by mystery, to walk in a place that surpasses my idea of it, to not be in charge for once. I want to touch something greater than myself. And this is where it is.
It's a brilliant collection.

Name: Teri

Age: 30+ (yikes!)

Country: USA

Subscription/Access Policy: I've had this dreamwidth account for years, but rarely ever used it. I'm just starting to revamp it now, but I'll be making my fandom posts public, and most personal posts friend locked.

 

Main Fandoms: Doctor Who (NuWho), Star Trek (all), Harry Potter 

Other Fandoms: Firefly, Farscape, Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, Galavant, Pushing Daisies, actually a lot of sci-fi even the older stuff like Lost in Space (1960s)! I have so many film and television interests that they range from pre-code to modern day.

Fannish Interests: I enjoy chatting about a variety of fandoms, and also make gifs and icons. I really appreciate people who can laugh about their fandoms and don't take them so seriously that they hate on characters. I'm a fan of Alan Rickman, Kenneth Branagh, Chris Pine, and more. I love seeing what other people are into because it introduces me to new things. I tend to lean towards an interest in sci-fi, fantasy, and fairy tales.  

OTPs and Ships: Most of my ships are canon and I'm not a fanfic writer, but some of my friends are brilliant at it, and I don't mind seeing it on my dash. I don't hate on any characters or ships. 

 

Favourite Movies: Harry Potter(s), Star Trek(s), Galaxy Quest, The Princess Bride, Gattaca, The Illusionist, Little Shop of Horrors, Ghost Busters (old and new), Bubble Boy, Amadeus

TV Shows: Star Trek, Doctor Who, Modern Family, The Middle, The Goldbergs, and cheesy old favorites like Jack of All Trades

Books: so many, but I'm really into Neil Gaiman right now.

Music: almost anything upbeat and fun, a lot of 80's music, and soundtracks from musicals, occasionally classical

Games: Not a gamer, unless you count old Atari games.

Comics/Anime/Misc: I'm not much into comics or anime, but film-wise, I did enjoy Guardians of the Galaxy and am looking forward to seeing Wonder Woman (I hope it's good!). I like musicals and live theatre (plays). 

 

Other Info: I also post about gardening, home design ideas, life in general, and share photos. I'm a gif maker on tumblr and my primary blog can be found here. I also have a Potter/JSAMN tumblr here, and belong to probably too many groups on that site. Because I've made so many gifs, you'll probably see some of those as reaction images in my journal here too. I tend to comment on anything I find relatable and am pretty good about replying to comments. I don't like seeing graphic horror on my dash, glorified violence or drugs, hate of any kind, and don't really want to see a ton of screaming posts about politics or news. I was really hesitant about making a post here, but I've gotten really bored with tumblr, and declined the new LJ agreement, thus blocking me from accessing my account there, so I'm hoping to find some of my old friends on this site, and meet some new people with similar interests. I'll likely follow back/grant access to friendly people with similar interests/journals. At this moment, there's not much on mine, as I'm just getting started here and couldn't import my LJ over (wish I'd done that earlier when I had access!). I really miss old LJ, like the way it was before it was sold the first time, and I'm hoping there's still a chance to recreate that sense of community and fun.

These questions come from Feodora

4. Books - hardcover or paperback
5. Mobile(cell phone): Windows/Android or Apple?

Copy and paste to your own journal, then reply to this post with a link to your answers. If your journal is private or friends-only, you can post your full answers in the comments below.

Friday glee is all about the heelhooks

[personal profile] rydra_wong in [community profile] disobey_gravity
The Friday post of glee is where you get to tell us about your climbing-related happiness this week.

It can be a new achievement or adventure, or just that you climbed and had fun; it can be that your favourite climbing wall is expanding or that you bought new rock shoes or that you found a cool ice-climbing vid on YouTube. No glee is too small -- or too big. Members are encouraged to cheer each other on and share the squee.

N.B. Please feel free to post your glee on any day of the week; the Friday glee is just to get the ball rolling.

To enhance this week's glee: these young gentlemen attempt to find UK-style bouldering in Massachusetts -- a valiant effort, but I feel lacking the pervasive greyness, drizzle, and whinging needed for true authenticity, though there are some good efforts at '80s-style Christmas jumpers in the second half.
