      And happy weekend, Dudette and everyone!

      Nerdy, I had missed that second tweet, so thanks so much! Also heard that the unveiling of the Obamas’ official portraits will take place – I think the first week in September, if I’m remembering correctly – at the White House, at the invitation of President Biden. Can’t wait! It’ll be the first time Mrs. Obama has been back in the WH. Feel like we’ll all shed a few tears!

    It’s not often that we get the chance to gloat over Mitch McConnell, but with DEMs passing the CHIPS bill (against his will) I’m happy to spike the football in his stupid turtle face.

    Suck it, Mitch.

    Asian American youth encounter struggles with entering the workforce

    “It’s hard connecting with the recruiters because we don’t share similar cultures.
    Everything I tried to say to them, they just don’t really understand. Our topics don’t match. They like talking about sports or family outings and Easter. I don’t celebrate either of those and I don’t watch sports so it’s kind of hard to connect,” Chen said.

    “Recently, Asians are no longer considered one of those minorities … So I feel like I’m receiving all of the negative things of being a minority and not really getting any of the benefits either,” Chen said.

    Statement from President Biden on House Passage of Assault Weapons Ban

    JULY 29, 2022

    When I signed the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act – the first significant piece of gun safety legislation in nearly 30 years – I said that there was still work to be done to keep our communities safe and keep dangerous firearms out of dangerous hands. When guns are the number one killer of children in America, when more children die from guns than active-duty police and active-duty military combined, we have to act. Today, House Democrats acted by unifying to pass an assault weapons ban to keep weapons of war off our streets, save lives in this country, and reduce crime in our communities.

    The majority of the American people agree with this common sense action. The Senate should move quickly to get this bill to my desk, and I will not stop fighting until it does. There can be no greater responsibility than to do all we can to ensure the safety of our families, our children, our homes, our communities, and our nation.

    Nichelle Nichols Helped NASA Break Boundaries on Earth and in Space

    Actor Nichelle Nichols, who died July 30, 2022, didn’t just break new ground on “Star Trek” by playing one of the first leading recurring Black female characters on U.S. television. A decade after the show ended, she did the same for NASA, appearing in a promotional film aimed at recruiting women and people of color to apply to be astronauts, as she recounted in a 2012 visit to NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. The next astronaut class, appointed in 1978, included Guy Bluford, the first Black American in space, and Sally Ride, the first American woman in space.

    NASA Adminstrator Bill Nelson remembered Nichols in a statement:

    “Nichelle Nichols was a trailblazing actress, advocate and dear friend to NASA.
    At a time when Black women were seldom seen on screen, Nichelle’s portrayal as Nyota Uhura on Star Trek
    held a mirror up to America that strengthened civil rights,” said Administrator Bill Nelson. “Nichelle’s advocacy transcended television and transformed NASA. After Apollo 11, Nichelle made it her mission to inspire women and people of color to join this agency, change the face of STEM and explore the cosmos. Nichelle’s mission is NASA’s mission. Today, as we work to send the first woman and first person of color to the Moon under Artemis, NASA is guided by the legacy of Nichelle Nichols.”


    • August 1, 2022 at 12:39 pm

      More from nasa.gov:

      Nichols and NASA crossed paths many times over the years. Astronauts and other employees cited Nichols’ performance as Uhura as one of the reasons they wanted to join the agency.

    Republicans who condemned kneeling NFL players just gave vets the middle finger

    Several senators who just voted to deny health care to sick veterans previously slammed peaceful athlete protests for “disrespecting” the military.

    By Ja’han Jones:


    • August 1, 2022 at 12:53 pm

      “The bill — known as the PACT Act —
      would have expanded VA health care eligibility for affected veterans who served after the Sept. 11 attacks. But it failed on a 55 — 42 vote, with 41 Republicans voting against the measure. (Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., also voted against the bill as a procedural step that will allow him to reintroduce it in the future).

      Veterans groups were furious about the vote — and rightfully so. As my colleague Steve Benen wrote, Republican senators overwhelmingly supported a virtually identical bill just weeks ago.”
