01) Congress Fighting Over Another Stimulus Package


“AOC won’t vote for the stimulus bill without changes being made first.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said Monday that, if reports are true about the contents of an emerging COVID-19 stimulus bill that Congress is negotiating with the White House, she plans to vote against the legislation.

A draft of the bill reportedly includes new funding for hospitals, coronavirus testing and a small business loan program, but omitted key progressive priorities. Left-leaning members of Congress want more aid to cities and states, relief for renters, universal vote-by-mail and aid to undocumented immigrants.

01) John Sydney Mcnair: Accepting the Sexual Self

“As a Pagan magician and former student of a Tantric teacher I know the psychological damage which can result from not accepting our sexuality in its totality. This damage can certainly lead to the psychological and physical damage of others, especially those with whom we have close relationships. Having control over sexual energies is therefore of paramount importance, not only for one’s own physical and psychological health but for that of others.”
