We can and should message BIF as a step, but messaging it as a solution alone is going to get us into trouble.
BBB contains the majority of the presidents agenda. We must keep going and ensure the promises are delivered
It’s not just that we made these promises before - look at how the infra bill is being messaged *now*
I respect the President and the leg feat he just accomplished. But this is simply wrong. We did not fund the replacement of every child’s pipe & we shouldn’t tell people we did
The NYTimes did another article on "why are Democrats not winning the white rural vote?" and I really don't know how to explain that the bigger problem is that Republican media and political figures have created such a moral hysteria that these voters have lost touch with reality
In Greece, antivaxxers have been paying doctors 400 euros to give them shots of bacteriostatic water instead of th #COVID19 vaccine.
Except the doctors have been pocketing the money and giving them the real shot anyway: keeptalkinggreece.com/2021/10/10/gre…
Here’s how the game works:
If you’re liberal, conservatives hate you. It’s really the only core value they have left.
So conservative politicians do awful things just to piss you off. When you react on social media, it amplifies their voice and gives them power.
Stop reacting. twitter.com/clearing_fog/s…
2019: @chucktodd says “We’re not going to give time to climate deniers” on Meet the Press
Today: Rick Scott—a climate denier who banned the term “climate change” in Florida (and voted to overturn the election)—is invited on MTP
Why is this show allowed to get away with this?
Incredibly grateful for all the hard work @Kamal_t must have done in researching this thorough article on @ShantiBhavan and our work. She really captured the depth of what we do, the challenges, and the successes. Very proud to be featured in @NPR. <3
Today, at the village's edge, there was a one-day-only presentation by the local government agricultural conservatory of the many heritage apple varieties they grow on the nearby slopes. Pretty good welcome for this guy who spent the last five years writing about apple trees!
Pfizer's new pill formulation should be shared with the world, patent-free. They've made enough money off this plague. It's time to end the vaccine patents, and if this pill really works, it should instantly be distributed in a generic form worldwide.
Now, I am not a tax lawyer nor an accountant, so I do not know if this is true, but if so, looks like the IRS finally decided those NFT transactions need to be reported.
Gosh. Who could have seen this coming, etc. twitter.com/jtheaccountant…
This morning, as you find yourself once again confused and annoyed by the forced disruption of your circadian rhythm that is Daylight Savings Time, it’s worth remembering that we punish ourselves with this ritual because of… NOT ONE SINGLE GOOD REASON AT ALL.
You've committed yourself to being a soldier of the dumbest bullshit imaginable, and by god if you don't get on the clown stage & perform some outrage at the big yellow children's bird today, then a glimmer of self-reflection might dare creep in and you'll realize how sad you are
I got the COVID-19 vaccine today! My wing is feeling a little sore, but it'll give my body an extra protective boost that keeps me and others healthy.
Ms. @EricaRHill even said I’ve been getting vaccines since I was a little bird. I had no idea!
This is a pretty generous lede for an appeals court that just stayed a ‘requirement’ that doesn’t go into effect until January 4th next year and did so without citing or applying the applicable standard for emergency relief. twitter.com/tackettdc/stat…
This is one of the major coups of the MCU: training fans to say that no film can ever be judged as a film since no matter how bad a movie is it has "importance" to future movies that may theoretically be good twitter.com/blgtylr/status…
When I said the same thing people with Twitter law degrees came at me like I didn't understand how the DOJ works.
Maybe now that *another* Elie is saying it people will get it? twitter.com/eliehonig/stat…
I was 7 years old when two grown white men screamed at me, "Go home! You God Damn F***ing Iranian!"
Does reading this make you uncomfortable? I guarantee you it's no where close to the terrifying discomfort I felt as the first grader hearing it. twitter.com/CBSNews/status…
At least 18 billionaires got covid bailout money.
Ever notice how when a billionaire gets government funds, it's a "stimulus," but when a regular person gets something, it's a "handout?"
Just got off the phone with a good friend of mine, Joe Rogan. He said my iPad has Gushers juice in it to make the wifi work (the gooey stuff in Gushers, they don’t make it anymore). He said to eat it to taste Gushers again and then my brain would have wifi. I’m in the hospital
This is actually only 1 question but as I'm part of the "woke mob" I'll answer it:
Far fewer vaccinated people get COVID & fewer still are dying of COVID. The majority of cases, transmission, and death all occur in unvaccinated people like you, Aaron.

Parker Molloy nails our very real, very disturbing problem with the way media handles news. Ratings > truth and what gets ratings is white ppl feelings > reality. twitter.com/ParkerMolloy/s…
