Ronan’s being shifted to a Manhattan Project of sorts. And by Manhattan Project I mean a People’s Bomb project. You’ll hear about it in a couple weeks.

In 2007, as part of his internship, I took to a rally. I’ve forgotten the issue, but there was David McReynolds. I introduced him to Bhaskar; which was highlight for me. I hope one day we’ll say we match the lifetime commitment to democratic socialism of David.

Yes I was just thinking of that day. He made a nice write up about the protest (I think about the GHI privatization) and marching with young DSA members.

This is Arlene Foster (centre), the DUP leader with UDA commander Dee Stitt (second from left). The UDA are a proscribed terrorist group, the DUP are Theresa May's Westminster political partners. Tell me about Corbyn though!

Yes, I don't deny that they had the power to do this already. But I completely agree with Adam's sentiment.

its not a matter of precedent (as some argue) but rather an extension of the same horseshoe "fake news" panic and FB's pathological desire to not look bias against conservatives. As such, to balance the scales they will invariably go after the lowest hanging fruit on the left

Amazing. "For the first time in Gallup's measurement over the past decade, Democrats have a more positive image of socialism than they do of capitalism.

"The world is what it is; men who are nothing, who allow themselves to become nothing, have no place in it." — opening lines of A Bend in the River pretty much captures the worldview of someone who was the greatest writer in the English language for a time.

Glad to see this map include the Trenton area. It's been utterly devastated, and the state legislators who spend half the year there don't seem to mind.

"It’s an op-ed piece in the New York Times by Meagan Day and Bhaskar Sunkara. It takes a highly trained broadcast specialist to pronounce these names unrehearsed, ad-libbed, and get them right the first time." Should I tell he mispronounced my name?
