Maybe we're all living in Lorac's nightmare now. And Bannon is Cyan Bloodbane. He's supposed to be leaving and suddenly he just stops and tries to quiet everyone down so he can announce this. BuzzFeed confirms that Flynn will not comply with the subpoena and invoke his Fifth Amendment rightswhile Brian Beutler goes there:
Follow tomhull Book Notes Every now and then I put together a blog post where I list a bunch of books I've noticed in the library, book store, or on the web.
Sometimes I include notes. This file just collects all of them so I can try to avoid repeating myself. Using Taxes to Reform Health Insurance: Of course it was, something never much understood at the time. Previously wrote A History of Modern Iranso this is a sort of prequel, an attempt to understand where all the later mess came from.
Out of jail after 43 months, not like he killed anyone, just redistributed millions of dollars from the public till to needy clients "a corporation, Indian tribe, or foreign nation"congressmen, and himself and his fellow fixers. And now he's had a change of heart, trying to raise himself to muckraker from muck.
Problem is, he hasn't had a change of character. As an Amazon reader put it: A self-serving memoir in the manner of Dennis Ross and so many other failures, but Abrams didn't fail -- he was pure evil, and was remarkably successful not just at wrecking any prospects for peace in Israel's neighborhood but in making everyone involved, including the US, much meaner and crazier.
No idea how much of this he admits to -- such creatures usually prefer to dwell in the dark.
The American Way of Poverty: Fifty years after Michael Harrington's The Other America, we still live in a land of poverty and want -- even more so now than then, as the trendline is getting worse and the political will to do something about it has vanished.
Mixed views on this book suggest that jumping between anecdotal description and broadside prescription doesn't reall handle either end, but the problem is real enough.
Just one of a bunch of drug industry exposes, shaded more toward the bad things the drugs do to your body rather than their reckless pursuit of profits. The Truth About the Drug Companies: The Battle for Saudi Arabia: Ali Abunimah, One Country: Palestinian blogger, previously wrote One Country: The answer they find is "man-made political and economic institutions" -- an easy case study is to compare North and South Korea; harder ones go back to ancient Rome and medieval Venice, and try to predict where the US and China are going mostly down, I gather.
How to Repair a Failed SystemWiley: Some kind of group project from New York University Stern School of Business, which Amazon attributes as the author, with analysis and lots of recommendations.
The Arabs and the Holocaust: When the Palestinian revolt against the British failed, Haj Amin al-Husseini fled to safe havens open to him, Nazi Germany, thereby setting up a narrative that connected the Holocaust to Palestinian resistance to the creation and dominance of Israel.
That at least is one thread the author must deal with -- practically the only one that seems to come up, but there must be more, even with most of the Arab world, including the future Israel, outside of WWII's grasp.
Political scientists argue against the conventional view that voters make rational political choices by pointing out how their views at least as much shaped by primordial identities, a hint of what's become obvious as the red-blue divide has gone beyond analysis and prescription to selective embrace of facts.
Still, title suggests something more, like pointing out how these distortions have opened up opportunities for politicians to do things contrary to the positions they adopt when campaigning. Those things are mostly favors for special interests -- favors that wouldn't stand a chance if "representatives" were actually responsive to voter views.
She has written poetry, children's books, and some fifteen non-fiction books, some quite personal but a couple taking on very broad topics -- like A Natural History of the Senses and A Natural History of Love Book Notes. Every now and then I put together a blog post where I list a bunch of books I've noticed in the library, book store, or on the web.
Taner Akcam, A Shameful Act: The Armenian Genocide and the Question of Turkish Responsibility First I've heard of "exceptionalism" not applied to America, but the concept is probably universal. For decades, in the face of racism and injustice, most black athletes have remained silent.
Despite all of their physical prowess, they have been rendered impotent like eunuchs when it comes to addressing black issues. I thought that I would be blogging about another example of new possibilities in America for black people.

This question does not quite broach the question of what it is not to be, or what it is to occupy the place of not-being within the field of being.
What it is to live, breathe, attempt to love neither as fully negated nor as fully acknowledged as being.
