a little about Agent Carter and Homeland
I have a bad cold, so if this post is stupider, or smarter, than usual, that may be why. It's like drunk blogging with chest-wracking coughs. If you're afraid of spoilers, don't be. I'm not giving away any major plot points. The only reason I'm writing abou...

I have only watched one episode of Agent Carter and was not particularly impressed. I felt, like Will, that Carter would have had a solid reputation in the intelligence community after her work on the Super-Soldier project, and that doesn't show. I won't be watching again unless they have an episode where Carter teams up with Julia Child.

I did see Carter and Dum Dum in a flashback on an episode of Agents of Shield and liked that a lot!

The next time your right-wing family member or former high school classmate posts a status update or tweet about how taxing the rich or increasing workers' wages kills jobs and makes businesses leave the state, I want you to send them this article....

Thanks for the pointer to this blog. 

Do you think the recognition of "classism" is growing now in the US? Does that require or promote a retreat from the noxious ideology of American Exceptionalism? Cherlin's reaction to Lamont's studies is revealing.

That's as clearly a rhetorical question as one could hope to find. Of course we're fighting for Empire, when we should be struggling, not against flesh, but against the Powers and Principalities that lie behind our idolatrous way of life.

My favorite political thinker, Adolph Reed Jr., on Selma and black politics. http://nonsite.org/editorial/the-real-problem-with-selma
The victory condensed in the forms of participation enabled by the VRA is necessary—a politics that does not seek institutional consolidation is ultimately no politics at all—but not sufficient for...

"During President George W. Bush's tenor in office, it was the first time ever (in all of U.S. history) did America engage in a major war without ever raising taxes. Just the opposite was true — instead, taxes were drastically reduced."

I hope so. People can't afford their large-screen TVs = revolution.
