Series | A Nation Under Trump, Part 5 - What have the Democrats learned since Trump's election? Michael Sean Winters, National Catholic Reporter (NCR)

The Series: As the anniversary of Donald Trump's election as president of the United States approached, the NCR staff wondered if the calls to action that persisted immediately following the election remained as urgent.
Part 5: Unless the Democrats get their act together, there is no reason to think that Trump, with a strong economy at his back, will not be the odds-on favorite for re-election. You would think that grim prospect alone would be enough to galvanize Democrats toward change. And you would be wrong.

February 21, 2018 | Breaking: The Net Neutrality repeal (has) become official. The FCC (published) its Net Neutrality rollback in the Federal Register (Thursday, February 22), which means that Congress will be able to examine the rules and move forward with a vote to reverse them.This also means that we have a limited amount of time to get all of our elected officials on board to save the open internet — but we have a plan to get there.

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Fight%20Back_0.jpg

Millions of people have spoken out against the FCC’s Net Neutrality repeal because they recognize how important the open internet is for racial justice, free expression, innovation and economic opportunity. The momentum we’ve seen has been grassroots and creative, and gives us hope for the future.

Part 1: The Boston Globe Has The Last Mass Shooting Story You’re Likely To Need

It’s ready for the next massacre, and the one after that, and the one after that ...

Ryan Grenoble, Huff Post 

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Boston%20Globe%20%7C%20What%20Will%20Happen%20Next.jpg02/16/2018 | They all play out the same way.

So much so that The Boston Globe went ahead and wrote its article for this school shooting ― and what seems to be an infinite number of other mass shootings to come ― in advance. 

It’s generic, yet exceedingly, tragically accurate. All we don’t know are “who, where, and how many.”

And it’s front page news.
