FRIDAY CATBLOGGING….TGIF, my friends, TGIF.

As usual, though, Felis catus has lessons for us all. Things are not as bad as they seem. We can all get along. A good night’s sleep — followed by a good day’s sleep — will make the world seem brighter. The only culture war worth fighting is the one between Friskies and Fancy Feast.

Which reminds me: does the Palin family own any critters? Are they dog people or cat people? Do they own hamsters? A fish tank? Or what? Why has the liberal media let us down on probing into this critical question?

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
