I Love Strong Women (re-published)

By: Saturday March 8, 2014 1:15 pm

You want to know what I think makes a Strong Woman? They are women who refuse to be limited and force the rest of us to accept them in their humanity. They refuse to be limited by stereotypes and they lift us all with their strength.

Jamie Love of KEI was in a high level meeting at the US Patent and Trade Office yesterday on intellectual property and access to medicines.

FDL and the 2012 Election

By: Wednesday June 20, 2012 12:30 pm

In 2008, we chose as a blog not to endorse either candidate because we did not want to alienate either significant sector of our community. Moreover, we firmly believe that elections are the time when candidates are the most responsive to the needs of the constituents whose votes they hope to woo. That’s also our position in 2012

Why Are You Here?

By: Saturday March 24, 2012 11:30 am

That’s a question I ask myself a fair amount. Sometimes I ask it about myself, and other times I’ll read a comment or diary or post and ask it about someone else.

When I ask it about myself, I’m usually trying to sort something out. “What is it about this place that draws you in, Peterr — and draws you in not just to read, but to comment and to write?”

Late Night FDL: Occupation Everywhere – And You Can Help

By: Wednesday October 5, 2011 8:00 pm

You, the FDL readership, helped make this coverage possible. Because of you, a movement that the mainstream press confidently predicted would fizzle out after a day or two has not only endured, but spread.

Cue the FDL Membership association – a brilliant idea conceived like many others at FDL: in our comments section. It allows us to continue to build our organization on donations from our supporters while putting us on steadier footing for our future. Since its inception, the membership association has revolutionized our work at FDL – we’ve become much more organized internally, and are churning out projects and ideas left and right.

Join FDL and Be Ahead of the Curve

FDL is a place where you can connect with and “talk” with people like you who want to know more than the canned pablum fed to you by Big Media and where your own thoughts, analysis and opinions are heard and can spark action. It’s a big noisy, sometimes rambunctious family we have going here, but we’re all together in our search for truth and in our desire to effect positive change.

Netroots Nation: Marcy Wheeler Introduces Guest of Honor Russ Feingold

By: Thursday June 16, 2011 5:50 pm

Russ Feingold is a hero, and for good reason, to progressives. Russ was one, if not the only one, of the Democratic Senate, make that Senate as a whole, who really stood up for civil liberties in the face of the bipartisan onslaught that has occurred over the last decade, both under George Bush and Barack Obama.
