Why I Am Not Marching, My Revolution Will Not Be Televised

fb_img_1484938510251.jpg

I swear I am not a traitor, please don’t hate me. I fully support all the ladies and protesters marching in the Women’s March today. But that is not how I want to or choose to protest. Instead of protesting by marching and yelling and holding up signs, I am going to use the power of my mind and dollar to fight corruption. I am going to do research, and even do some of the research for you so you can be the most effective protester you can be, be it on the street or from home. MY revolution will not be televised.

If you’ve read my other blog posts, I am not a fan of our now president. I am opinionated. And if you know me personally, I am loud and do stand up for rights. But today I want to do things differently. I agree the squeaky wheel gets the grease, but we have been screaming our heads off and crying for thousands of years. I’m done. They (the paternalistic society) are not getting any more of my energy. I am done screaming, I am done crying, I am done putting my body at risk for others. I am going to hurt them more than anyone can, with money. Because in the end this is what it is all about.

I AM A POWERFUL CONSUMER AND SO ARE YOU. So first off, I am done shopping for extra shit. Shit I don’t need. Why, because all those cheap trinkets and replacement clothes you buy, that new outfit you don’t need and closet you fill, is supporting the very companies you voted against. Name brands. GO FUCK YOURSELF. Melania handing a Tiffany box to Michelle. That was a fucking commercial to spend money, and you too can be beautiful and regal if you save all your fucking money for a blue box.

Remember the Montgomery Bus Boycott? IMO Boycotts have initiated much more political and social change. Boycott the brands that our new statesmen are affiliated with or own. First off, don’t stay at a Trump hotel or buy a Trump product. Fuck you Ivanka. Fuck you Melania.

I know many of you have certain opinions of me, and probably think I’m a hypocrite for not going. I have a long list of things I have done for women’s and children’s rights, much of which has probably exacerbated my mental illness. But just like today, I don’t feel like yelling it out. I completely respect and encourage all women, people, everyone to protest in whatever way they find most effective for themselves. But if anything, don’t just do nothing. Do something if you want your life to change.

I am so glad the sun is finally out. It’s been weeks. Today instead of marching, I am picking up my ethical meat and eggs from Seven Sons, putting on my Patagonia vest and spending this rare 50 degree sunny day with my 2 year old, who will only be 2 years old once in this lifetime. Big ups to you marching ladies.

Fuck them. I’m not yelling any more.

Here is a list of successful boycotts, someone did it for me.

List of Goldman Sachs affiliates

List of Cabinet pics so far

I’m going to be generous and go through each pick and show you what they are affiliated with, you can do this with ANYONE. I encourage you. Look up their affiliates and you can go deeper into what brands are affiliated. What products are YOU BUYING TO SUPPORT THESE JAG OFFS?!

If you truly want change, do this for everyone you ever vote for again, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY VOTE during grassroots elections. Because this is how we got here.

OUR POWER IS IN THE VOTE AND IN THE POCKETBOOK 

Don’t turn a blind eye to the products you are purchasing. You don’t NEED much. WE CAN DO THIS IF WE STAND TOGETHER AND CHANGE OUR PHILOSOPHIES, not scream our heads off every time we get mad. It’s too late. He’s in office. Let’s really do something.

  1. demonstrations are good for media coverage and awareness– kind of a waste in this environment where theres no one unaware of the divisions between left and right (or rainbow and orange, or whatever) on these matters– especially when the media is already unabashedly anti-trump. whats to win?

    ive always liked boycotts– ive been boycotting walmart for a decade and a a half (as well as amazon, aka walmart 2.0) but sadly, bailouts do cut down on their effectiveness. we should not bailout companies that the people boycott in significant numbers. they should be allowed to fail. did you boycott bank of america? it shouldve affected them more– bailed out instead.
