TK News is expanding, so we're looking for new material, but of a particular kind.
Prepare to go blind on reading replies! Insanely bold request. I’d contribute but my day job is off limits to write about. (Paychecks are a really good censoring mechanism.)
I’m a longtime professional cartoonist and fine artist. Worked at Mad, Marvel and DC comics. I would be interested in doing political caricatures. If you look up William Wray on my Twitter page you can get a cross section of what I do.
Would an article about affordable housing, and how the building industry, special interests, and societal prerogatives make it essentially impossible, be of any interest?
As a subscriber and avid fan of substack, I have one quick comment on the direction of this site in light of the plan as just presented by Matt…..”Boy do I like where this is going!
You're doing the Lord's work, Mr Taibbi. You and Greenwald are heroes in these shitty times.
What about a Joke of the Week? Here's a freebie for you I invented just this morning.
Q: What do you call a black bird taking photographs?
A: A camera'ing crow.
So much mendacity, so little time. )))
My nomination would be to use the immense library of Dave Lindorff, of ThisCantBeHappening.net An example of his incredible research-articles is below:
Unsung Heroes of Los Alamos: Rethinking Manhattan Project Spies and the Cold War (August 4, 2020 by Dave Lindorff)
• Plans for 300 nuclear bombs on USSR, with minimum 15-20M dead (these estimates were before “nuclear winter” effect was identified)
• US spies are unsung heroes that prevented another US crime of our millennia
Without a doubt, I would say take a look at the recent articles by Mathew Ehret on education and Transhumanism.
“From Russell and Hilbert to Wiener and Harari: The Disturbing Origins of Cybernetics and Transhumanism”
Interesting. What's the deadline for submissions? This week?
I knew a hooker once named Minnie Mazola...?
Interested to see what you come up with. Personally I work in the medical software industry, and while dystopian and bureaucratic, its not something I would call particularly interesting.
Although, when the Obama healthcare reforms happened and we had to come into compliance with government regulations that was sort of funny, had everyone running around like their hair was on fire.
I wish someone would compile all the ways the Trump administration actually worked against Russia's interests during his term. From kicking out embassy people to fighting the Russian pipeline to Germany, Trump's people were quite antagonistic towards Russia. Guys like Chomsky said the possibility of nuclear war with Russia was higher under Trump, yet then also said Trump was Putin's puppet. Makes no sense
Remember when "creationism" and "intelligent design" were taught in schools as if they were science? Well, a new anti-science curriculum has taken hold in schools under the rubric of "gender ideology". Children are being taught that biology is passé, that what one "feels" matters more than material reality, and that people can literally be "born in the wrong body." We filed a public records request to get the actual materials and curriculum used for teaching "gender" and sex education in the Seattle Public Schools. The results presented in this video should shock you. Unfortunately, everyone's afraid to talk about it:
It'd be pretty good to see someone compiling corporate media's nudgings... like the NYT's current push to bolster up the travel industry despite the enormous environmental impact air travel perpetuates.
They go on about travel like a broken record and their chatter lately is all revolving around urging people to go on vacations, trips, and spend those tourism dollars.
I'd like to see who pays for that, and see other ways that the NYT and others artificially inflate markets and business.
For instance, financial reporters causing panic in order to get the market to sell.
Anyone who has an inside track to that information would blow the lid off of the operation. My hunch: it's a giant scam and I want my wife to stop reading the NYT hahaha
I'm tired of noticing a trend in their rag and then a week later she is suggesting we go on a trip, etc. while sending me links about teen mental health and their NEED to travel.
You had an interesting article with Dennis Kucinich last week. How about making him a monthly guest contributor if he's interested?
