Good Night, Mr. Knight!

Since we started this resistance group right after the first Women’s walk, we’ve had moments that have been alternately grim, inspiring, and enlightening.

And, now one that was just fun…

Yesterday, we again joined fellow Indivisible and resistance groups outside Congressman Steve Knight’s (R-CA-25) office in Simi to join in a protest rally. However, since retirement announcements from fellow CA GOP members Issa and Royce, this time we went to encourage Mr. Knight to see the wisdom of following in their footsteps.

Note to voters… California utilizes a top-two primary system, which allows all candidates to run and all voters to vote but only moves the top two vote-getters, regardless of party affiliation, to the general election. A motivated electorate can remove Mr. Knight at the primary.

There were the basics of rallies…signs and cheering! With music!



There was cake! 


There was singing and dancing!

We’re in awe of the creativity and talent of our fellow resisters! Hum along…

(to the tune Hello, Goodbye by the Beatles)

You Vote Yes
We say No
You say stay
We say GO GO GO

We say Goodbye so you’ll finally GO
Hell No Hell No
We won’t be sad to say goodbye
And see You GO

Hell No Hell NO
We won’t be sad to say goodbye
And see you Go

(Sung to Goodbye Yellow Brick Road)

When are gonna come down?
When are you going to land?
you should have stayed on the farm
You should have listened to your old man
We’d rather not wait till November
We didn’t sign up for you
Our Taxes aren’t presents for your friends to open
That’s why we’re turning this district to Blue…. Ah…..

So Goodbye Steve hit the Road
Hear the folks in the 25th Howl
You won’t be getting a pension
Why not retire right now?
Back to the 50s with your policies
Back to the wife and abode
Oh I’ve finally decided my future lies
Without old Stevie the TOAD, Ahh

What do you think you’ll do then?
Bet you’ll improve your golf game
It’ll take you a couple of vodka and tonics
To set you on your feet again.
You know we’ll find a replacement
Anyone’s better than you.
All that we want is for people to flourish
That’s why we’re turning this district to BLUE,   AH……



Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin’ until then.
Who cares about the clouds when we’re together?
Just bring us home a new Rep in November
Happy trails to you, ’till we meet again.

And later, margaritas, Mexican food and good company! Thanks to all who participated.
