Two reasons for hope: decline of the petrodollar-fueled militarism and the pending release of FISA related memo

Hat tip to Ellen North for leading me to some of the best news I've seen in a long time: Ellen's comment links.

Few things have given me much hope about our nation's future and the course of world events lately. Yet two events, one allegedly occurring Feb. 2 and the other slowly evolving are producing that hoped-for result.

Comey brings up McCarthy and gets bashed on Twitter

(UPDATE) Another thing to fight; I'm so tired

(UPDATE: They've already begun tearing down the trees; someone posted photos earlier today on FB. The public hearing wasn't scheduled until Feb. 12. THIS IS NOT DEMOCRACY. I still intend to write angry letters to the city council and mayor. I can still make noise, be a PITA and waste their time!)

Why The Dems are Panicking over the Nunes' Memo

It's pretty simple. They don't want to run in 2018 as a progressive party.Their leadership actively rejects progressive policies, as do conservative Democrats they support. They would rather simply run against Trump, rather than provide the American people with an alternative vision.

Bruce A. Dixon explains intersectionality

There's an excellent series on "intersectionality" in the Black Agenda Report.

Why Does This Sound Like A Pyramid Scheme?

This morning one of my in-laws sent me this via email:

Ever Considered Working From Home?

Melissa Johnson from New Jersey never thought that she would work online, until curiosity got the best of her and she filled out a simple online form. Before she knew it, she discovered her secret to beating the recession, and being able to provide for her family while at home with her three children.

Cuomo asked Pelosi some relevant questions for a change. Her reaction is ‘priceless’.

Nancy sure doesn’t do well under pressure IMO. I don’t think she’s that great a speaker in the first place And to see her stammering and repeating herself, like in the video here, shows how obvious it is when she’s trying to weasel around something that she’s been asked or some statement that she’s made. She’s not a quick thinker. Her only line of defense is to keep “catapulting the propaganda”** over and over. And she did that today.
