After Georgia flips blue, Republican lawmakers push for new voting restrictions
Georgia confirms what I’ve learned from decades of doing voting rights work. Voter fraud is not the problem, it’s voter suppression. Republicans use made-up allegations of fraud as an excuse to prevent eligible citizens who they suspect are Democrats from voting.
I've received several DMs from friends asking what do to about parents/family members who believe misinformation regarding the election, vaccines and COVID. Here's a research-based thread to help explain the roots of these beliefs and how to (and how *not* to) address them. 1/
I get a lot of push-back on this but I'll say this again. Trust people & don't focus on the occasional cutting in line. A vaccine is a vaccine, and the worst scenario is not incorrect order but slow rollout and wasted vaccines. Remove the bureaucracy and complicated verification.
bakeries have figured this out, if you have leftover pastries at the end of the day you want it to go to whoever can take it, throwing away day old pastries is a unethical waste of food
i mean i'd take a day-old vaccine at half the price
This overly bureaucratic prioritization, and the outrage over a few undeserving people cutting ahead (which I don't support but the harm is much less than all this) will likely do more damage to those in high-risk categories than the actual cutting in line. Roll it the @#!! out.
100% all of this thread: we shouldn't waste vaccine period. equity of access is good, but bureaucratic means-testing, as usual, is making everything worse
My wife and I attended the “Stop the Steal” Trump Insurrection on Wednesday (as observers, NOT participants) and there are FIVE big take-aways from what we witnessed and heard outside the Capitol that I'd like to share. (We took all the pictures below). 1/22
1. (THREAD) So, it seems like the deplatforming debate is once again kicking off, so I thought I would introduce some of the earlier work that was done in this area back when ISIS was buck wild on social media. What have we learned over the last six years might be useful today:
Just learned that incarcerated workers will be forced to make the new furniture that replaces what was destroyed in the Capitol. This Tik Tok does a really good job of breaking it down:
also the government MUST BUY FROM A SINGLE COMPANY
like someone literally lobbied the government for a license for slavery and GOT ONE
After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.
so it takes a little over 4 years for twitter to resolve a support ticket
Shot/chaser. @washingtonpost sanitizing people intent on overthrowing the government. Vile.
woke up quick at about noon
just thought that I had to be in DC soon
I gotta get drunk before the day begins
before my daughter starts bitchin' about my friends
