The number of kids in cages has actually gone up.

Awful as this is, if this is the greatest shame the US experiences this century, your nation will be fortunate indeed.

...I hate being reminded that I'm an optimist.

It's still a pretty big story here -- Ducey's under enough pressure that he finally had to launch an investigation -- but the lack of national attention has been...strange. It's not as if the press won't cover the family separation policy (it was the top story for weeks) or child abuse (as they have this past week with the Catholic Church scandal). As little faith as I have in the press and their attention span, this should be a much, much bigger story than it is.

Nobody wants to open the lid and see how fine with it half of everybody including your family actually is.

A Republican Super PAC got security clearance paperwork of a democratic challenger and used it for political purposes.
WASHINGTON — A former C.I.A. officer running for Congress accused a super PAC aligned with Speaker Paul D. Ryan on Tuesday of improperly obtaining her entire federal security clearance application — a highly sensitive document containing extensive personal information — and then using it for political purposes.

Abigail Spanberger, the Democratic candidate challenging Representative Dave Brat of Virginia, sent a cease-and-desist letter to Corry Bliss, the executive director of the Congressional Leadership Fund, which has raised more than $100 million to help Republicans in the midterm elections. She demanded that the super PAC destroy all copies of the form and agree to not use the information in any fashion.

...

The super PAC released a statement on Tuesday strongly denying Ms. Spanberger’s charge, saying that the document was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request filed with the United States Postal Service by America Rising, a separate Republican-aligned research firm.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/28/us/p ... r-pac.html

The USPS doesn't get security clearances and the security clearance application is one of the least FOIA-able documents in the government.

Ms. Spanberger, 39, said in the letter that she had “clear evidence” that the Congressional Leadership Fund had provided a copy of her security clearance application to “at least one news outlet,” adding, “I am not aware of any legal way that C.L.F. could have this document.” In an interview, she said that she suspected that the group was trying to exploit a brief time when she taught at a private Islamic school funded by Saudi Arabia.

The super PAC validated that suspicion in its response, going on at some length to try to link the school — called “Terror High” in an earlier news article — to terrorist activity.

No low is too low for the Republicans.

Ahhhoohoohahahaha

EDIT:

<Glocks4Interns> that seems to be proposing a day off work so sure, sounds good to me.
<Jack> It sounds like they want to turn Labor Day into Labor & Capital day.
<grant> for capital day, everyone should work extra hard out of gratitude
<wcb> On Labor Day, you get paid and don’t work, so on Capital Day you work and don’t get paid
<grant> there's a parade, but nobody is given time off to attend it

Wait... didn't someone post that ITT?

In any case it's a really good song. I ended up listening to it a bunch of times in a row.
