Here are a few links from our net-surfer at large, Ian Kallen:


Bob Dole’s reply to the State of the Union speech is on-line.

Banter regarding everyone’s favorite potatoe friar, the intellectual shining light of the Republican Party Dan Quayle can be read in the newsgroup alt.fan.dan-quayle.

And if you are one of those very few people who don’t have access to his radio show, that airwave curmudgeon Rush Limbaugh‘s followers are in the bandwidth! (alt.fan.rush-limbaugh)

Not everyone will have access to the above newsgroups, so some of you poor souls will miss out. Harangue your system administrator if you’re really desperate to read these rantings.

SIX TRUTHS

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in "This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated," MoJo's Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Truth #1: The chaos is the point.

Truth #2: Team Reality is bigger than it seems.

Truth #3: Facebook owns this.

Truth #4: When we go to work, we're in the fight.

Truth #5: It's about minority rule.

Truth #6: The only thing that can save us is…us.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones'—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don't—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you're able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today. It's all hands on deck for democracy.
