The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances

We, as citizens, need to stop whining to and at each other, and start petitioning government (and watching it closely!) for redress of our grievances. Whining is not petitioning.

The U.S. is a great country. But it's been turned inside out by this administration.
Sure, no complaining or blaming going on here.

And WHERE would that be??
