Civics for Grownups.  
 
A lot of folks said they were willing to give our current president, Donald J. Trump, a chance - that they wouldn't reflexively oppose everything he said or did. Among the most notable were comedian Dave Chappelle, former President Barack Obama (as is the perceived custom for ex-presidents), and Obama’s CIA director John Brennan.

Here at CODA we adopted a similar stance in the interest of civil discourse (more on that later) in the pursuit of civic engagement.

Recently both Obama, and more pointedly Brennan, have both spoken publicly and forcefully about the current state of the Trump presidency, his temperament, and the larger implications for the republic. It ain’t good.

Our president is only the part of the problem -- but he exacerbates two of the main issues that are plaguing our democracy: Ignorance and Corruption.

So for the foreseeable we will attempt to address those two things in our civic discourse and call it out when we see it and hopefully bring some knowledge to you in a way you may not have otherwise considered. Only your knowledge and engagement will stave off apathy and inertia.

This is not The Resistance. But we hope it is part of a new Enlightenment into what makes our society works, and how to root out what doesn’t.

Thank you for joining us on this journey!

WHO WE ARE:
Coda-US is a loose confederation of folks who believe in the value of civics knowledge and the power of citizenship. It is benevolently led by former Army Lieutenant Colonel Todd Peebles who is government and civics nerd and supporter of all things wonk.
