Does #ARKANSAS need a #GQP extremist as governor? Sarah accepted the endorsement of CPAC. Yeah - the same CPAC that just had nationalist fascist Victor Orban speak, as well as well-known white nationalists, US election deniers. #WhereIsSarah conservative.org/2021/10/04/cpa…
@JonesForAR is walking the whole state TWICE to meet and learn from actual Arkansans. He’s not a national figure phoning it in. Sara has not visited the state except the homes of wealthy donors. Arkansas needs an actual PLAN. Jones has that plan. Get registered, ready to #VOTE🗳
#Arkansas needs a governor that will hold the GOP majority Legislators’ feet to the fire. He’s pro-choice, pro-justice, pro-teacher. He has an infrastructure plan to bring AR into the 21st C… not the Race To The Bottom we are now in. Look at @JonesForAR and get ready to #VOTE🗳

Good morning everyone, you'll never guess what I woke up to! First lets set the stage. Remember how on Feb 24th the Russian's didn't bother to check a calendar, road map or with the Ukrainians if invading and committing genocide on them during winter was a good idea of not?
That level of hubris is the foundation on which will be built Ukrainian victory. Well, I woke up to some of that, "I am Russian I don't need to do any research hubris". I got accused on being a paid military bot/troll because I "only" post about Ukraine.
That little fish I gutted yesterday was back on the hook thinking he "found" a way to discredit me. Like a typical Russian he didn't bother to actually research his assumption and instead just blundered into an ambush to become the example two days in a row. Talk about bad

Ok lets talk bridges and carrying capacity from a, "I am not an engineer or logistician" perspective. First, we've all been across multiel types of bridges from one lane rural roads designed mostly for infrequent traffic but built to take heavy agricultural loads, on up to big
highway bridges that can have dozens, hundreds or thousands of vehicles on them at any given time. The main bridge into Kherson was one of these latter bridges. It offered effectively unlimited carrying capacity moving in both directions at high speed. When bridges like this
get cut, you have to use a virtual time machine to get to the other side because what replaces it until repairs/rebuilding is complete is something out of the last millennium. Either A: vehicle launched bridges army-guide.com/eng/product375…

Hey, @Pendolino70S I saw your worry, so lets make it the message of the day. So, I woke up to your tag on this tweet about GOP support for Ukraine post mid-terms. I think the fear is mostly over-rated and here is why
1. Defense spending is almost as widely distributed as atmospheric oxygen molecules. Just about every member of both houses of congress has real bring home the bacon moments from the defense industry. This makes funding politically lucrative and mostly bipartisan.
2. Americans love an underdog and a democratic Ukraine fending off a rabid Russian bear is ticks all the right boxes to stir American passions.

3. long term incumbency means a lot of members of Congress get access to information that is more frank and more honest than what the

There are a lot of shitty people in the world. Sadly, Russia's genocidal war in Ukraine has them coming out of the woodwork. Not just Russians who are steeped in the corruption, but also westerners. One of the biggest is @ArmchairW who is apparently both a US Army vet and a
creeper. How does someone serve in the US Army and go from that place to supporting Russia? How does an American think genocide is OK? Genocide is not a bug but a feature of Russia's plans. Today apparently a couple of universities were targeted, then there was the most recent
attack on a shopping center.... most.... recent.... Until the next one. The killing, slaving, rapes and destruction when does it end? Either A: never if we don't do enough to support Ukraine or B: just as soon as Ukraine can liberate her territory and thus set the conditions for

Buckle up, this won't be a happy thread, but it is a thread that needs to be made to say the quiet part outloud so there is no veneer to hide behind. First off hat tip to @PeterCorless and @marshray for making the TASS info so easy to find
398,353 kids who were stolen per Russia's own admission. Who are they, what does that number mean and using history as a guide what is their likely fate? Those are the three questions where quiet parts need to be said out loud. So, keep your buckets close you might need them to
catch the mess when your stomach decides to do its own forced "evacuation". First off who are these kids? Honestly, no one knows. No one can know. Most are going to be orphans either mom dad were killed by Russian invaders in Ukraine, in filtration, or because Russia has been

So now that the Russian effort has or is about to culminate and its the ZSU turn at bat what would an offensive look like? This is a complex question. Most people want a big offensive that punches through the Russian lines gaining large amounts of liberated territory that
forces the Russian's to retreat or risk encirclement. After all the Russian Army is exhausted and they have not proven very adept at handling forces in a maneuver fight across a wide area. This fits with "western" ideas of what an offensive looks like from Desert Storm.
However, I don't think Ukraine has the level of kit needed for this type of operation. While HIMARS and 155mm tube artillery is aggressively attritting the Russians, behind Russian lines the Russian Air Force is still a major factor. Massed armor invites massed attack. Instead,

So, what is a Fella to do during a meme war? Shall I
A: make donations so that more Russians than Ukrainians die during Russia's genocidal war?
B: help keep up pressure on government officials to support Ukraine?
C: Aggravate Russian officials?
D: Combat Russian dis-information.
E: all of the above.

Here is my entry for A. Not the only donation I have made to support Ukraine and I am not a big-time donor, but Fellas run in a massive multi-national pack that collectively can help the war fighters in real and material ways. Our donations to groups like Image
@georgian_legion and charities like @MriyaAid both help Ukraine's defenders kill orcs and not die in return. Perhaps just as importantly, crowd sources multi-national donations from activist citizens who oppose genocide help keep up pressure on government leaders like

Well crap, the Diamond Hogs lost and their season is over. Our home is definitely a baseball house and we try to make at least 1 game a year. This year was awesome because we went to Dickie-Stephens to watch the Arkansas Razorbacks (Diamond Hogs) play the University of Central
Arkansas (UCA) Bears. UCA is my Alma Matter so I got to yell "Go Bears" and make the claws while also calling The Hogs , "WPS" wearing mixed school items... So how did someone who was literally born a Husky (born at UW hospital) end up in Arkansas? Haha, that is a tale of bad
choices, addiction and not knowing who I was, where I belonged, or what the hell I was supposed to do with my life post army. I landed in Arkansas in rough shape, almost by accident and headed straight down. Luckily, once here I found the right people who helped me get lined out.

It's no coincidence that the states eager to keep women from controlling their own reproduction also refuse to care for those women or their children.
Compare the states ready to ban abortion with a map of states that refused to expand #Medicaid.
The maps are overly simplistic in showing states' expansions of #Medicaid, and this thread will explain some of what's complicated.

In essence, many states led by #Republicans didn't want to expand a program that helps pregnant women, kids, and the frail elderly. Voters did.
Let's take those anti-abortion states that "have expanded Medicaid" in alphabetical order.

So, first, Arkansas.

#Arkansas led the way in requiring people on #Medicaid to work. Their unique plan also disenrolled people who didn't meet the work requirement.
