Roseanne with a Door to Door Politician

For the record, this is how I choose to remember Roseanne.

Tfw you take a pic of something stupid (see my last pic) and your poet friend jokes about a collaboration and actually makes something beautiful. @bexklaver. I’m off to find more garbage.

How the Federal Reserve ruined my weekend: the Shawn Sebastian Story.

The New York Federal Reserve President is the most powerful position that Trump doesn’t control. They can push us towards full employment — more jobs, more bargaining power for workers, and higher wages. I don’t always agree with economist Larry Summers, but he’s right when he says, ““A strong, fully employed economy — where firms looking for workers is a larger issue than workers looking for firms — is the best social program we know. It is shortages of labor that induce firms to figure out how to train felons, to move beyond their traditional prejudices, to figure out how to skill unskilled workers, to reach into distressed or depressed communities.” The next New York Fed president will help decide if we move toward or away from full employment.

The next New York Fed President will also be responsible for supervising and regulating the Big Banks and preventing — or allowing — another financial crash. Last time that meant 8.7 million of us lost our jobs and 9 million of us lost our homes because the New York Fed didn’t do its job. And instead of helping homeowners, they pushed trillions to the big banks.

So the next New York Fed President is a big deal We deserve a zealous advocate for full employment, a tenacious regulator of Wall Street, and someone who represents the diversity of all the working people of color who have the most to gain and the most to lose from the New York Fed’s decisions.

News broke yesterday that the frontrunner for the position is John Williams, a white, male, Fed insider who wants to slow down the economy with a terrible record and little interest or expertise in regulation.

This is my thread laying it all out.
