Cards Against Humanity Saves America

This activism project is brilliant. Cards Against Humanity bought as much land as they could afford along the Mexican border, hired a lawyer who specializes in eminent domain, and then sold off the land in tiny $15 increments so that EACH ONE would require a separate lawsuit to build a wall across.  It's also replicable; any activist group could do the same thing, and that's a loooong border.  The fight could easily take years.

Poem: "Lateral Moves"

This poem came out of the November 7, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by prompts from Shirley Barrette and [personal profile] readera. It also fills the "decade" box in my 10-31-17 Time card for the Space and Time Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Fire and Ice thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.
