I really, really, really, really, really, hope that the the Republican’s attempt to pass “healthcare reform” (i.e. tax cut for the 1% paid for by gutting Medicare & Medicaid) is the Norwegian Blue parrot in this classic Monty Python sketch. “It’s run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible”. But Politico reports that White House budget director Mick Mulvaney recently opined that the Senate should not vote on anything else until it’s voted again on repealing Obamacare. “It’s not dead.

We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
