Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), a retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel who lost both of her legs in the Iraq War, addresses the Senate regarding a recent tweet by Trump (Cadet Bonespurs) impugning the Democrats’ concern for the Military. This, despite Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) having introduced a resolution that would have secured pay for service members during a shutdown, and having the resolution blocked by Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). As Shareblue notes, this is in contrast to how in 2013, President Barack Obama signed legislation that ensured military pay would continue, uninterrupted by that year’s shutdown — which was also engineered by Republicans in Congress.
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.
