Our Revolution Launch Kickoff

quote [ Political pundits and the billionaire class are watching very closely to see what Bernie supporters do next. Some of them might be tempted to believe our political revolution is toast.

They want our extraordinary phone banking, door knocking, and grassroots organizing efforts to stop. They want us to get discouraged. They want to vanquish our movement once and for all.

We aren't going to let that happen.

That's why, on the evening of August 24, we will kick off a new organization called Our Revolution with a major live stream address where Bernie will talk about the specifics of what we can do as organizers going forward to fight for every single issue that drove this campaign. In order to get as many people watching as possible, we need to set up grassroots watch parties all over the country. ]

The facebook Event

Live Stream - not an official livestream as the URL isn't available for that yet, but this is one of the groups that will be relaying it tomorrow.

Main link is the map where you can find a launch party near you.

Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information Color Photographs

quote [ Photographers working for the U.S. government's Farm Security Administration (FSA) and later the Office of War Information (OWI) between 1939 and 1944 made approximately 1,600 color photographs that depict life in the United States ]

In light of recent reminiscing of old SE, a JOECAM-style old photo post. Anybody love this stuff?

SE Digest: Volume 1

quote [ Greetings and good fappin' morning, day, or night to you, Sensible Human Beings. This is the Sensible Endowment Digest: Volume 1 for the website ]

I had a job cancel today so this morning I did something silly and attempted to make a demo for an SE podcast. It's basically a highlight reel of the last 10 days of activity on here, and I give my personal opinion on a couple things but nothing in depth. Link goes directly to a page that autoplays the MP3 file (or you can right click and "save as" to download to your computer). Running length: 15:08. Labeled SFW but I use the swears.

Harambe: Cincinnati Zoo deletes Facebook and Twitter accounts after being bombarded by memes

quote [ Cincinnati Zoo, where Harambe lived until he was killed earlier this year, has been forced to kill its social media accounts.

The account has brought an end to weeks of relentless jokes and memes by fully deleting its account. The zoo had asked people to stop making memes of the dead gorilla – a plea that in fact seemed to spur many people into making new ones. ]

The things meme-ists latch on to...

Someone is stealing roadkill moose from the side of Alaska highways

quote [ Don Dyer drove to Talkeetna to salvage a dead moose in the early hours of Sunday morning, but when he arrived at the scene, he found something awry.

The animal had been killed on the Talkeetna Spur Road, about 100 miles north of Anchorage. Dyer, the executive director of the Alaska Moose Federation, was there to pick it up and donate it. ]

A cool dip & a little dignity

quote [ In the summer of 1961, two young African-American men decided to go swimming at one of Nashville’s municipal pools — one that was reserved by Jim Crow for whites only. Days later, the city closed all its public pools — and left them shut for three years. ]

Stranger Than Fiction: The Story of a Mother and Daughter

quote [ Gypsy was healthy at birth, Rod said. But when she was 3 months old, Dee Dee became convinced that her baby had sleep apnea, that Gypsy would stop breathing in the night. It was then when Dee Dee began taking her to the hospital. As Rod remembers it, the doctors couldn’t find anything, in spite of three rounds of tests and a sleep monitor. The conviction that Gypsy was a sickly child took hold. ]

Buzzfeed has come a long way since its inception. This story is fascinating.

These Louisiana politicians are demanding flood aid, but voted against Sandy relief

quote [ Fleming, Scalise and Cassidy, by the way, are also climate change deniers, a sign that they’re unable to process evidence in front of their own eyes. Fleming has claimed that evidence of climate change is the product of a “radical environmental agenda.” Scalise has griped that it’s an effort by radicals “to prop up wave after wave of job-killing regulations that are leading to skyrocketing food and energy costs.” Cassidy in 2014 claimed that global temperatures had not risen in 15 years, which happened to be untrue. Remarkably, both Fleming and Cassidy are medical doctors. ]

They should be out in the flooded areas, denying there's any water in the streets at all.
