Challenge

Layaway, on-time, and paying-something-down-on-it have been very familiar phrases in black, brown, and poor neighborhoods for generations; credit was for the people who did not need it. Financial freedom because of race, religion, and status was prohibitive for countless numbers of Americans and immigrants. The constant pressure of having to...

Donald J. Telharmonium: lots of rotating discs and not much of an effect, network or otherwise. With other elements of the Big Lie grift moving forward, Trump will unfortunately be back because of not underestimating “the power of stupid people in large groups” (George Carlin)…. on a network. The challenge is that wheels of justice do...

It depresses me to acknowledge this, but the Republicans’ commitment to blatant and serial lying, and Orwellian “make believe” governing, pose a real threat by overwhelming the public debate and individual’s efforts to stay grounded.  While a bit well-worn (and of uncertain provenance), this quote is fundamentally true: “A lie can travel halfway around...
