This is a curated list of articles, seeds, photo/video posts and comments for the past two weeks. The series will combine the use of Newsvine's "thumbs up" as well as the minds of the Newsvine team. As always, meta articles about the proper use of the site will be ignored for this feature.
You missed a busy week. It's time to catch up.

Vlad's Dog writes "Will Paul Ryan by the next Speaker? Take the poll"
The news today is that two thirds of the Freedom Caucus will support and vote for Paul Ryan as the next speaker. The problem though is that Ryan wants to change something that the Freedom Caucus used to get rid of John Boehner. Ryan wants to change the "vacate the chair" procedure so the Freedom Caucus will not be able to use it again to rebel against his leadership.
DSKI-1290107 writes "What was "COOL" when you were growing up?"
Cool is when you walk into the room with no introduction, yet everyone knows when you've arrived. Cool is when you say so little, yet said so much. Cool changes with time and many times what once was cool, aint so cool anymore.
V-1797921 writes "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH"
"We" have been forced into slow recovery to no recovery while they play games (lining their pockets) and the people they pander to should turn on Scary (Jerry) Springer and call it a day or "We" can continue to allow our representatives to cater to dark money & allow our political process to be turned into more of a joke or worse continue to be inundated by this Confederate ideaology or
the Sleeping Gaint can gear up to speak truth to power again, but for sure what "We" can't do is continue to allow people who promote only themselves or a weak outmoded agenda

Announcement: The fine developers here unleashed a new tool for Sally and I to use. It enables us to read every single comment in The Spirit & Purpose, as well as other filters. This should help us moderate our Nation and has already helped us more quickly address comments reported through the flagging method.
So who's going to make next week's Best Of? What did we miss?
