Day 97 of 1,461 (or 2,922)

In pace requiescat, Jonathan Demme.

  • What’s on the way? Tax cuts for the rich? Who could have expected that?
  • If we get through this intact, it’ll be because of the hard work we’ve done to fight. Slate made a list of the people who’ve been doing so. Needs more women, but it’s not bad.
  • Republicans exempting themselves (h/t ShakeZula) from the horrible things they’re about to do to the ACA reminds me of the best episode of its original passage:

    REPUBLICANS

    If you love Obamacare so much, why aren’t you on it?

    They AMEND the bill to put members of Congress on the exchanges.

    DEMOCRATS

    Yes please, fuckers!

    They PASS the bill anyway.

  • Not only is Trump defiling the figurative monument that is the Presidency, he’s also going after our official National Monuments.
  • Ivanka Trump is as rotten as her father. I’m horribly worried that future presidents and their families will also profit off the office like this.
  • Some genius/sicko made a Watchmen-style comic about the last election. Look on their work, ye mighty, and despair!
  • Thanks to the hard work of Fight for 15 and others, 15$/hour is the new baseline for a prospective minimum wage increase. Well done.
  • The bright sun brought it to light. The founder of TheRedPill has been found, and surprise, surprise, he’s a Republican.
  • Clive Staples Lewis was a real dick. Read what he had to say about Walt Disney and his masterpiece, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
  • This world made room for ClickHole. It can’t be all bad.
