Do we really have anything worth celebrating?
More recently  Someone said to me
 "Pastor, Nigeria is a cursed country".
I said no... We are not cursed, we have only allowed pple who have no business governing us to occupy offices thru our actions & inactions
For some of us, it has been a SIDON LOOK approach.

We must take back this nation from the hands of a few who have now come to believe that they own Nigeria and must always chart her course.
In the beginning, it was not meant to be so.
We take back our nation in the place of prayer and not just prayers, but getting invilyand demanding accountability....

We not only pray that God will deliver this nation from the hands of bandits, kidnappers, killers, thieving, clueless and inept politicains who dont mean

Is #govt doing #Enough for #Covid_19?
There is huge debate about govt not doing enough or hiding true data. Majority of people look at the data & facts published by govt with skepticism. The blame is , data are tailored to portray the shining picture in #Covid_19 management. 1/
I,as one, neither completely deny the accusation nor completely agree to it. I shall try to touch upon if actually govt doing enough or not in another space but let us first ask ourselves.
ARE WE DOING ENOUGH ??? Let’s ask few questions to ourselves before we question anyone!
1) are we taking all precautions ?? Do we wear masks as much time as possible ? How many times we put the mask down without reason ? Are we using right mask?

In 2019, #CDC Guideline authors quoted their 2016 stats:

"nearly 2 million" have #opioid use disorder,
"estimated 3% to 4%" rely on long-term opioid therapy
"approximately 11%" report daily #pain

"Nearly 2 million"=nearly 0.6%. Stick with me.…
Before governments recommend & legislators, providers, & insurers adopt policies that could harm up to 11% to possibly protect 0.6%, they need damned good evidence that what they're recommending is necessary.

But they didn't know if rx #opioid limits would help or kill.
#CDC set off a tidal wave of limits in 2016, even tho the studies then available on dose limits provided "very-low-quality evidence" that reducing or stopping med would improve pain, function, or quality of life. 76% got the *lowest* rating for evidence.…

Health is my top priority. When a school shooting happened less than a mile from my second grader's classroom, that was the final straw that led me to run for office. But I was advised not to talk about gun violence as a candidate in a conservative area. #copolitics
"You can still do the work, but don't be the face of gun violence," I was told.

First-time candidates get a lot of advice. It can be tough to weigh which advice to take and when to follow your heart.

"Be authentic," we're told, at the same time we're told to avoid controversy.
I knew that talking about gun violence in the context of public health was a risky political move. But when IS the right time to talk about gun violence/public health? If I'm not willing to have hard conversations, how can I lead my community through crises?

2017 Review: “Expert guidelines recommend reducing or discontinuing long-term #opioid therapy when risks outweigh benefits, but evidence on the effect of dose reduction on patient outcomes has not been systematically reviewed.” / #cpp thread.
🟠 How can guidelines be "expert" recommendations if researchers haven't carefully investigated how patients will react when their rx #opiod med is stopped or reduced?

Are we going to feel better or worse? Are we going to live or die?
In 2017, #VA-funded researchers identified 67 studies about #opioid dosage reduction or discontinuation.

Study quality was deemed “poor” in 76% of the 67, the lowest rating.

Systematic review of research on dose reduction & discontinuation concluded, "Very low quality evidence suggests ... pain, function, and quality of life may improve w/ #opioid dose reduction."

People are dying & being disabled on the basis of "very low quality evidence."
2017 study: “Expert guidelines recommend reducing or discontinuing long-term #opioid therapy when risks outweigh benefits, but EVIDENCE on the effect of dose reduction on patient outcomes has NOT been systematically reviewed."

How "expert" can it be?
The VA funded a team who reviewed all research in English about #opioid reduction-discontinuation. 67 studies were identified, but the study quality was deemed “poor” in 76% of the 67, the lowest rating.…

Hey, does EVERY state now have 'News Sources' that are just thinly-veiled propaganda mills run by Democrats, Open-Society Progressives, and other paid political shills- like this?

A thread...…
'The Gander' is targeting #Michigan residents with exclusively pro-government, pro-Guv'nah Whitmer propaganda- with some lifestyle stories thrown in to not make it obvious. So who are they? Their owner is ACRONYM...


Let's just ask them...

"To build progressive power we must meet audiences where they are – both online & offline – through digital advertising & organizing programs and by developing modern technological tools and infrastructure."

I should apologise to anyone who is a bit fed up of my feed becoming a 'safer cities / safer Edinburgh' blast recently. I've got pretty caught up in not wanting people to die or be hurt. That'll be continuing for the foreseeable, though...
I'll still be sprinkling in pictures of the cats, maybe some cartoons and drawings, and anticipate by the middle of the week to have a new twitter feed set up to carry the weight of the #enough vibe. Not that this feed will abandon the safety message of course.
But this feed complicates matters by making people think this is ALL about cycling. And not just people like John McLellan incorrectly writing that 'E' started because of 'cycling accidents'. Because it's me, folk who know me have (understandably) assumed.

I am not Vanessa Guillen - I am alive.

And I have used every method I could to raise alarms about sexual harassment and assault in the military & its aftermath.

I wrote about my personal experiences being harassed, having my complaints ignored by my command & mocked by my male peers in intimate, excruciating detail in my first book.…

Jordan obviously didn't bother to read the user agreement when he signed up for @Twitter. Apparently, neither did Trump. Difference is, Jordan could lose his account for breaking Twitter's rules. Trump? He won't lose a single tweet. (thread)
"You may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so."

#JackDorsey: Trump Twitter Immunity clearly applies to Sr & Jr. What about Jared? Tiffany?
EVERY* user agrees to not use Twitter to "threaten or harass" people on the basis of "race, ethnicity, national origin, caste, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease."

EVERY* user can be booted after 1 violation.

Ahmaud Arbery

He’s the victim of a modern day lynching in America. It’s absolutely disgusting that a great many people are defending this killing.

We CANNOT allow laws like Stand Your Ground to give lethal racism a license to kill.
There is a myth, perpetuated by the @NRA & Republicans:

“Stand Your Ground laws ensure society is safer, if I’m allowed to shoot anyone who threatens me.”

That’s why a former police officer shot an innocent black man out for a jog, & why prosecutors declined to charge them.
This lie is the MOST VILE law they currently peddle. SYG laws allow a person to legally shoot someone who they deem a threat, even if they may safely & easily retreat to prevent escalation!

It’s a classic situation where everyone thinks they’re the “good guy w/ a gun”.

Affaire de harcèlement sexuel au Bénin. Mon point de vue sur le sujet. #Tread

Le harcèlement sexuel, ce n'est pas parce qu'une fille vous provoque non, c'est votre égo surdimensionné à ne pas souffrir qu'elle vous dise non ! Image
Depuis je lis que les femmes s'habillent de manière aguichante, qu'elles sont responsables de ce qui leur arrive et que pour cela elles devraient se la mettre en veilleuse pour ne pas broncher mot.
Je lis aussi que les victimes ne peuvent pas dénoncer, parce que de toute façon le linge sale se lave famille. Mais que devenons-nous à la fin? Donc, dans ce pays on va se mettre à justifier les harcèlements ? On va commencer par trouver raison aux violeurs ?

This Women’s Day, I want to discuss a myth purported by the NRA & Republicans that they use to justify not passing sensible #GunReform laws.

“A gun is the ultimate equalizer, and gives women power in dangerous situations. Gun laws, therefore, are sexist.” 🙄
While firearms do give advantage to some women, that advantage is many times manipulated against them. A woman carrying a firearm for self defense is actually much more likely to have it used against her.
“Women who were victims of attempted or completed crimes used guns to defend themselves just 0.4% of the time,'' according to the NCVS.

Women are 100 times more likely to be murdered by a man w/ a gun than to use it to kill in self-defense.

This is preventable. Everyone in #DC deserves to be safe from gun violence. We know what has worked to drastically reduce homicides in other cities. Let’s really #KeepDCAlive @MayorBowser @councilofdc
It’s time we implement a #VisionZero for gun violence prevention: a specific plan with measurable goals. Why do we have a #VisionZero to prevent pedestrian & cyclist deaths [27 fatalities total in 2019], but not for gun deaths [135 gun homicides total in 2019.
We need to fund & hire a Gun Violence "czar" to coordinate efforts across all agencies. DC has a Night Life Czar to cut through red tape for the restaurant & nightlife entertainment industry, but we don’t have a GVP Czar to cut through red tape on gun violence prevention?

#Epstein #Maxwell #Wexner #Weinstein #metoo #Enough #TimesUp #SilenceBreakers

This summary by the Miami Herald of the Jeffrey Epstein case is worth RTing one million times.

Alex Acosta working for Robert Mueller gave Epstein a slap on the wrist b/c the HAD to.

The Epstein case in 2007 could not have gone to court without the risk of revealing COVERT operations on behalf of both the US and Israel.

Prosecutions have been dropped cases, at the urging of the intelligence community to avoid embarrassing revelations of misconduct.
This problem between DOJ + CIA has been on-going since 1950s.
A decision not 2 prosecute based on national security grounds is made by at least an Assistant Attorney General…when national security requires abandoning an investigation, forgoing litigation or dismissing a case.

I think the Left has reached a hard fork. Those that want to explore extreme wokeness, open borders, anti-whiteness, apologizing to homophobic/misogynist theocracies, worlds w/o men, reparations for slavery, cancel culture, etc need to branch off. And good luck: You’ll need it.
Emboldening the Iranian Government like this is insane. I don’t care how traumatized you are by the US or how much you hate Trump or how much of Noam Chomsky you’ve read. It just doesn’t matter. Just get a hold of yourself.
The rest of us for markets, democracy, liberal values, modest social safety nets, tolerance, content of character over color of skin, due process, free speech, etc. have to go back to defeating our loyal friends across the aisle & squashing newly emboldened neo-fascists. #Enough

With the number of mass shootings in the United States on track to exceed 400 by the end of the year, a new campaign of theatre activism called #ENOUGH: Plays to End Gun Violence launched yesterday.
Its mission is to spark critical conversations about gun violence across the country by providing middle and high school students with a platform to express themselves through storytelling, foster open dialogue in their communities, and inspire creative action.
Beginning in 2020 as a nationwide call for submissions of short plays written by students about gun violence, #ENOUGH culminates in an evening of simultaneous staged readings across the country of the most impactful plays on December 14, 2020 - the 8th anniversary of Sandy Hook.

We desperately need #GunReform laws in the U.S. #MassacreMitch has an A+ rating by the NRA, & has taken $ MILLIONS, ensuring no gun laws pass.

R’s are handmaidens to the gun lobby, ensuring thousands die yearly, so long as they get #NRABloodMoney.…
Now #MassacreMitch has stated he will only allow a Senate vote on #GunReform laws IF #VeryStableGenius is guaranteed to sign it. He wants to be absolved of any responsibility.



These deaths are on his hands though. He requests to be known as the Grim Reaper on passing legislation. He certainly lives up to the name.

The NRA is in Republicans’ pocketbooks as well as ears, telling them how to spread fear & lies about guns to the public.

We know better.

Until you’ve held the limp hand of a 20 year old athlete shot in the neck, now paralyzed, with tears streaming down his face, don’t tell me there’s nothing we can do about gun violence.
Because at that moment, looking into his devastated eyes and those of his stunned parents, any normal person would move heaven and earth to change that reality.
Every family in this situation sees the issue in its truest light. When I expressed my sympathy, the father barked out an almost-laugh.

“You’re sorry, doctor? You’re sorry? Well don’t worry. You’re the only one who gives any sort of a sh*t.”

Yesterday, my elementary school had our first real active shooter lockdown drill. Thread: what that actually feels like as a teacher (and a mom). (1/8)
Our principal frantically got on intercom to announce lockdown. Panicked but trying to remain calm, I urged kids to take cover far from any windows or doors. 32 kids packed in 5x20 foot space under cabinets, scared for their lives. (2/8)
Hands shaking, I ran to lock adjoining door, close blinds. Climb over my kids to close corner window blinds. One child whispers he saw someone in hallway. Kids panic. I squint through blinds to see if a child is unprotected in hallway. I am listening for gunshots. (3/8)

When Trump says the NRA’s views will be “fully represented” in talks to #EndGunViolence, does he know they already have a president to do that? As US President, he should care more about the views of 97% of Americans who support background checks. #GiveUSAVote 1/
Senate Republicans up for reelection in states like AZ, CO, OH and ME need to stop standing with the NRA and start standing up for our kids by demanding Mitch McConnell #GiveUsAVote on background checks for gun sales. Don’t ask for our votes if you can’t do your job right now! 2/
Trump says he is “all in favor” of strong background checks for gun sales. Actions speak louder than words. He needs to get #MoscowMich McConnell to #GiveUsAVote in the Senate on measures already advanced in the House. Let’s get this done. #Enough! 3/
