So I got on Twitter on Friday just as it was announced that the GOP didn't have the votes, and was so relieved for the sake of friends in the US. It was a good point in the midst of a toxic week.

Women Killing It (where 'It' is the Repeal attempts by the GOP)

Here's the thing; the system may be broken, it may not be perfect, it may not work 100% of the time. But it works for some people; covers the gaps that they can't fill themselves, and the alternatives amount to "just let the sick and poor suffer and die" when the rubber hits the road, which may be okay for some folks, but is not my avenue at all.

Sometimes I feel like I'm one of the very few people who ask the question: "But what if tomorrow, next month, next year, next decade, next century isn't like today?"

And most people shrug and don't think about it.

I donated to the #Ham4All "Immigrants Get The Job Done" Prizeo and sang one of my favourite songs from Hamilton: "I Know Him". Weirdly, my favourite songs are the King George ones, The Room Where It Happens, Burn, It's Quiet Uptown, and The Election of 1800. I think it's to do with the style. While I appreciate and am in awe of the complexity and cleverness of the rap songs that Miranda has written, I gravitate towards the songs that I can actually sing and are less likely to trip me up.

Anyway, here's me singing "I Know Him", which I call "the 2016 Election remix":



I probably should have linked back to Prizeo.
