Okay, it seems a shadowy group of progressive numerologists has decided that the number 50 is endowed with mystical properties that, harnessed effectively, will put the U.S. governance back on a rational footing and possibly levitate the Pentagon. First, we had “50 Ways to Save the Ocean,” now, from Earth Works Press (the folks who brought you “50 Simple Things You Can Do to Save the Earth,”)…”50 Simple Things You Can Do To Fight the Right,” a handbook crammed with useful information about what “YOU can do at home and in your community to defend America!”

What YOU can do is, among other things, “reclaim the Bible,” “take back the language,” “be a media watchdog,” and, yes, “give the Right a wedgie” (disappointingly, they mean “wedge issue”). The books tells you how. Click on the cover image to check it out.

REAL QUICK, REAL URGENT

Minority rule, corruption, disinformation, attacks on those who dare tell the truth: There is a direct line from what's happening in Russia and Ukraine to what's happening here at home. And that's what MoJo's Monika Bauerlein writes about in "Their Fight Is Our Fight" to unpack the information war we find ourselves in and share a few examples to show why the power of independent, reader-supported journalism is such a threat to authoritarians.

Corrupt leaders the world over can (and will) try to shut down the truth, but when the truth has millions of people on its side, you can't keep it down for good. And there's no more powerful or urgent argument for your support of Mother Jones' journalism right now than that. We need to raise about $450,000 to hit our online fundraising budget in these next few months, so please read more from Monika and pitch in if you can.
