“Do Something About It” is a song about doing the right thing, standing up for things you believe in. The world is becoming more and more evolved into a world consciousness, that believes that standing up for our rights still rings true. Baby boomers wanting change, are resisting the recent election. The song is released from Eugene Oregon by two former band mates from the days in the nineties when they were in the band “Nervous Rex”.

Diane DeVillers and Mark  (Vinnie) Alaniz, just celebrated 23 years together.

White Lash, white men, even women vote in Trump

San Eliho Beach

In what became a nightmare, I fell to my knees and cried when I heard Hillary lost the election. Trump will never be my President, he lost me when he continued to double down on racism, sexism, misogyny, and he sexually assaulted scores of women.

What will you tell your daughters? How will baby boomer women, who have worked at 76 cents on the dollar for four decades, accept this? It’s a sad day for America. Now we will see what a Republican President and all of Congress gets things done.
