Sit Back And Relax With Some Soothing Elizabeth Warren Getting MAD About A Thing

Featured

Has it been that kind of day for you? US TOO! So let us take a breather from all the ewwwwwww gross Duggary, what we have been telling you all about, YOU'RE WELCOME, and soothe our weary souls with our favoritest thing in the world, and YOUR favoritest thing in the world too: Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Queen of the Democrats and also queen of our liberal-progressive-whatever-we-call-ourselves-these-days hearts, telling it like it is, like A BOSS.

Here she is, at a Re/code conference in Silicon Valley, explaining why everything is effed up and bullcrap:


Too many of the people in Washington do not represent the folks who elected them. They represent the rich and the powerful, who don't want their taxes raised, who don't want to see any change, who are perfectly happy with things where they are. Indeed, they're doing great with things where they are. And they stay in the ear of enough of the folks in Washington that it has made it almost impossible to get any kind of change. The only way we get change is when enough people in this country say, "I'm mad as hell, and I'm fed up, and I'm not going to do this anymore. You are not going to go back and represent me in Washington DC if you are not willing to pass a meaningful infrastructure bill, if you are not willing to refinance student loan interest rates and stop dragging in billions of dollars in profits off the backs of kids who otherwise can't afford to go to college, if you don't say you're going to fund the NIH and the NISF because that is our future." [...]

These have to be the things that you wake up people all over America and say [this is] what matters. Whether or not you're going to have a job, whether or not you're going to have a retirement, whether or not your kids are going to have any chance to build a future for them. It's gotta be about these core issues, and we gotta talk about them, talk about them enough until there's some real change in this country. That's all I know to do.

You know, Senator, that's quite a lot. Yes and amen and we ARE mad as hell and fed up and we're going to NOT take it anymore (right after we buy ourselves an Elizabeth Warren coffee mug, ahem). Thank you, again and forever, for doing you, like you do, for all of us.

Well, goddamn it, a wonderful person we'd never heard of until last night is dead. Lyra McKee was 29, an investigative journalist who specialized in looking at the legacy of "the Troubles" in Northern Ireland. She was murdered by someone shooting at police during rioting in Derry, or perhaps Londonderry, depending on who you want to piss off by using either name for the city. The rioting broke out after police "started carrying out searches in the area because of concerns that militant republicans were storing firearms and explosives" in advance of attacks planned to mark the anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising. Police are blaming the violence and McKee's death on the "New Irish Republican Army," a radical republican group formed a few years ago from several smaller groups. Despite the name, the group has no ties to the old Provisional Irish Republican Army, which renounced violence and disarmed in 2005 following the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, which was supposed to have brought peace to Northern Ireland, and kind of did, at least much of the time.

McKee is being remembered by colleagues and readers as a promising journalist who was expected to go far. A year ago, McKee signed a two-book deal with Faber & Faber; the first of the books, The Lost Boys, an investigation of eight young men who disappeared in Belfast during the Troubles in the '60s and '70s, will be published next year. A 2016 Forbes profile said "McKee's passion is to dig into topics that others don't care about." For instance, CNN reports, McKee spent five years investigating a story about the only rape crisis center in Northern Ireland and its long struggle to regain funding after the government eliminated it.
