Quote of the Day


QUOTE OF THE DAY….From Mark Allen, a spokesman for the National Guard Bureau, on the duties of state governors:

“The role of the governor is to use the Guard to help the citizens of a state, as opposed to declaring war on a neighboring state.”

That’s certainly good to hear.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
