The fate of almost a million lives could be decided in the next six hours. As a voter, as a millenial, as a migrant, as a Guatemalan, I’m writing to say that I will be watching along with the vast majority of those who will determine the future of the United States of America.
If you already haven’t heard already, Harry Reid is going to offer the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act up as an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act. The Senate is scheduled to vote on taking up the Act tomorrow at 2:15 p.m. If you haven’t called you’re Senator yet in the support of the DREAM Act please do so now by calling:
It is imperative that you focus on these Senators. If you’ve called already, call again. If you’ve called again, ask five friends to do the same. If you’ve done all that, here are some more actions you can take.

Though we live in a world of sound bites and 140-character-driven narratives, life is simply more complex than this.

I succumbed to Twitter, but already I’m thinking about un-succumbing. I wanted to see what all the fuss is about and now I see that it is about nothing. My first follower wanted to show me her naked pictures, but not on her Twitter site…
I ask you.
Do I really need this?
In other news, They’re just predicting this now? A double dip recession? Oh noes! Whoever could have predicted that?
Listen, when your top “economists” are making apologies to the 40% of the unemployed who will remain unemployed because their skills are “unwanted” in America, continual recession into depression is what you end up with. But the Mainstream Media is going to act like this is new…BREAKING NEWS! ECONOMY ISN’T RECOVERING! I’ve been warning you for a year now. This is just the tip of the iceberg. But when it’s done, hopefully we’ll have learned our lesson about Free Trade and Trickle Down.
I’ll be following that thought up with a new post about the new permanently “unemployables” soon. Ω

Just wanted to write a quick note to all the FDL peeps at Netroots Nation. If you’re here, let us know! We’d love to meet up with you. We’re going to try to put together an ad hoc Firedoglake Caucus, so stay tuned for info on that.
Finally, if you’re here and tweeting, let us know your Twitter name in the comments. We’ll include you in the FDL NN10 twitter widget on the sidebar of the homepage.

There’s a fascinating article in the New York Times magazine today on foreign policy, Twitter, and something called “21st-century statecraft.” It’s really worth a read.

This week saw some very cool new media news including Chirp, “How to run a government from your iPad”, why Steve Jobs caused the Iceland volcano, the new budget deficit video game (MA), Glee: the app, and of course Stella Artios – The Movie (starring you).
