Turn That Frown Upside Down. These Pandas Make Life Worth Living.

It’s been so cold and terrible lately that I’ve really been down in the ditch emotionally. They call it SAD, they call it bad, they call it late for dinner. I know it as ¯_(?)_/¯. But put away your shrug ’cause, babe, I got a helluva drug: the kids call it red panda:

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.
