On January 22, 2017, a movement known as the Women’s March On Washington turned into a global protest of historical proportions.

1) The Women’s March on Washington was the largest global protest against the inauguration of a ruler in world history.
2) The Women’s March was inclusive of all people that felt compelled to protest and insist we “leave the world a better place.”

What could cause a massive movement like this? It was striking how many multi-generation protesters had boots on the ground. Not only did mothers-daughters march, but many grandmothers-daughters-grandaughters marched. Why? The resounding response — “our children’s children! We want to leave the world a better place.”

As it turns out, mother’s instincts about Donald Trump were correct. Within days of being elected, The Donald dictated actions that will harm more children than any President in history.

Things that kill and maim kids: the Dakota Pipeline, repealing the Affordable Care Act, withdrawing from TPP, withdrawing from the Paris Treaty, refusing children refugees from countries we bombed, de-funding International Planned Parenthood… every executive order the President has signed. In addition, censoring the Department of the Interior, USDA and the EPA, etc.

Boys, perhaps it’s time we listen to what our mother tells us?

The West Chester “Footloose” Ordinance
by Daniel Brouse
#WestChesterFootloose

WEST CHESTER, PA — The Borough of West Chester, Pennsylvania is attempting to pass an ordinance that would outlaw singing, dancing, acting, reading, juggling, magic, mimes and more. Unlike some “busking ordinances”, this ordinance will criminalize these activities for every person.

For instance, if you allow a 5-year-old to color with chalk on the sidewalk without a license, you both will be breaking the law. If you obtain a license to perform music and kids start dancing, they will be breaking the law. If you write music without a license and kids start dancing, you all will be breaking the law. Should you and your friends attend a peace rally or sporting event and sing the “Star Spangled Banner”, you will be breaking the law. If you read the First Amendment, you will be breaking the law. For that matter, if you read the busking ordinance, you will be breaking the law.

There is a public hearing:
Tuesday July 26, 2016 at 6PM
West Chester Borough Hall
401 East Gay Street
West Chester, PA 19380
