Wednesday Get Over the Hump Free for All
Greetings, Village Meese. It’s Day 230 of the Resistance and time for another Get Over the Hump post and discussion thread.
Nothing special today, mostly DACA with… oh… the banner?
Well, in case you hadn’t noticed, the stores are already putting out their seasonal candy and spooky merchandise even though it’s barely September. To tell you the truth, that’s okay with me. I love Halloween… Samhain… Dia de los Muertos… Whatever you choose. I’m not sure why October 31st became my favorite holiday, except perhaps that it wasn’t attached to so many conflicts some of the later in the year celebrations are heir to. Thanksgiving is problematic if you acknowledge that the arrival of the Pilgrims didn’t turn out so well ultimately for the Native Americans. Christmas has been a subject of contention for a number of reasons, not the least of which it has become a banner for the Right.
In any case, with a veritable living pumpkin inhabiting our nation’s highest office, the White House seems to have become a bit of a haunt.
And now for your regularly scheduled randomness.
As people in Florida brace for Hurricane Irma, we must prayer + support our brothers + sisters in Puerto Rico + throughout the Caribbean. pic.twitter.com/XxPzEvXWJ3

While we recover from Hurricane Harvey, please add Puerto Rico in your prayers as our Astros brothers' families are bracing for Irma.
