#S386 #EqualityCantWait #greencardequality

Mental onanism by #S386 opponents about how magic future CIR/ merit-based legislation as "right" solution to solve backlog

US Constitution Art 1 Sec 9 Clause 3- ex Post Facto prohibits retroactive effects of law.
In other words, new systems can only affect future I-140 applicants.

Only #Equality #S386 can solve backlog,

No new law can mitigate promissory estoppel claims of existing I-140 backlog. All claims to the contrary are spurious.

Also, don't buy life vests made of lead.
People not in line i.e. those who do not yet have an I-140 have no locus standi i.e. they do not have a legal standing recognized by law. Therefore their opinion does NOT count.

I've always been a firm believer in school uniform.
A fair, accessible and affordable uniform does have benefits, reducing bullying of those who can't afford branded clothing, introduces discipline in a fair way as everyone appears equal.
But current uniform policy has gone far beyond being uniform.
It is no longer affordable and accessible.

It is now teachers and schools who bully and abuse the pupils, who make lasting judgements based on appearance.
There is no such thing as a uniform size where children are concerned but the child is punished for their size, shape not conforming to the manufacturers average.

Girls are taught by their educators to expect judgement and abuse because of what they wear and how they wear it.

#Equality #HumanRights #Oppression #Marginalized

Reasons that causes like the #StraightPrideParade upset me so, so much as a progressive and an anti-capitalist.

I speak for myself. Others’ reasons are welcomed and appreciated.

Racial, religious, gender && various other #inequality has been present in the United States since inception.

The US touts itself as “The Greatest Country in the World”, while the rest of the world's sees us ... slightly differently.

The elite (top 1% - see below), for the most part have grown wealthy on the backs of class inequality and growth of generational wealth, compounded over time.

My name is Chrysty and this is Sherlock, my medical alert dog. We want to share with you why we choose @TulsiGabbard for president. #WhyTulsi

Do you realize that later this year people who were born after 9/11 will put their lives on the line in a war that started before they were born? Tulsi pledges to put an end to regime change wars! She is a combat veteran herself and proud of her service since 9/11.She knows(2/10)

Her commitment to prosperity through peace gives us a direction to move toward. One of the things I love the most about Tulsi is her integrity and hope! She is running a positive campaign toward a better future for us and for our children. My nieces and (3/10)

Was in pre-op for an emergent take back over the weekend. My chief arrived & in the middle of her asking me (the intern) to put in orders for the case, the male anesthesia resident asked if she was the pre-op nurse. She cordially explained she was the chief surgical resident 1/10
She was clearly the leader of our team yet had to defend her position as such. As a man, I often get benefit of the doubt of being “the Dr.” even when I was a short-coated medical student. As a new intern, people assume I’m in charge but I’ve only been a resident for 40 days 2/10
I have never had to defend my position on a team. This stands in stark contrast to the many women physicians who have to justify their role each & every day. I often wonder if I would have the same amount of patience as my female colleagues, & the answer is an easy no 3/10

At same period the UK Authorities, banks & state owned companies all converged with their plans to take our home, our car & our money, my mother's #DWP welfare benefit was also targeted on several occasions, the worst being what happened at #Adecco #Guardian #TheTimes #GMB
My mother was seeking #employment & arranged an appointment with #OfficeAngels who she was already registered with & had worked for, for years. However, the time & date of the appointment was at a similar time to that of her sign on with the #DWP. #Jobseekersallowance #Jobseekers

Welcome to #FallacyFridays, the day we explore logical fallacies in hopes of making better arguments & having sound logic. Today's logical fallacy is the straw man fallacy. This one is quite popular, so don’t hesitate to let your followers learn more about it by retweeting. 😁
In order to explain how the straw man fallacy works, let’s talk about this tweet I made last week.
As responses were pouring in, I found that most people understood the content of my tweet and folks answered the question to the best of their ability.

The strength distribution between males and females. As you can see, there is barely even an overlap, with the average males easily surpassing the best females. This is the whole reason we have sex segregated sports.

(via @asymmetricinfo @hbdchick)
However, difference of output doesn't necessarily mean that female athletes don't work just as hard as men.

If they want to have equal pay, people would have to start watching/supporting women's sports as much as men's. Otherwise it would be financially inefficient.
Broke: Force equal pay for female athletes by subsidizing their wages

Woke: Women's pay should be determined by their profitability as per supply and demand, just as men's sports is #equality

Nobody performs corporate #pride sponsorship with the vigor of @salsesforce, so today I would like to talk about how their political giving intersects with their stated values. And by intersects, I mean "t-bones at 90 mph in a school zone". All numbers taken from FEC filings.
The tweet pinned to the @salesforce Twitter account right now says "We are all wired for connection, and connection requires a deep sense of belonging." The link takes you to an online course on 'Beginning Your Ally Journey'. They are not fooling around.
The @salesforce Public Policy page says "We believe in equality for all and are committed to supporting Equal Pay and equal access to education, while openly opposing discriminatory legislation." They boast about discriminatory legislation they've fought in the United States.

Smug @SecretaryCarson & the occupant of the @WhiteHouse are brutalizing our communities on an almost hourly basis. As we approach #PrideMonth, it is our collective responsibility to uplift our #trans brothers & sisters in the face of these cruel policies time.com/5595474/donald…
This hateful proposed rule will endanger the lives of trans people—particularly trans people of color— who disproportionately experience homelessness, putting them at risk of physical & sexual violence.
Carson unveiled this proposed rule ONE DAY after he sat before @RepWexton & assured us that #HUD would not eliminate the 2012 Equal Access Rule, which bars federal housing discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity

Hilo.

1930.

Hoy, día 3 de mayo, es el cumpleaños de LUCE IRIGARAY, lingüista y filósofa feminista francesa de origen belga.

Cc @generoenaccion
Está considerada como una de las teóricas fundacionales del pensamiento francés del FEMINISMO DE LA DIFERENCIA.

Siguiendo el discurso analítico sobre ella que hace Luisa Posada Kubissa (véase bibliografía):
“Será sobre todo _Speculum_ el lugar en el que Irigaray teje sus
urdimbres teóricas y arma su artillería crítica contra los discursos filosóficos y psicoanalíticos, que han reducido a la mujer a condición de posibilidad de la imagen y de la reproducción de sí. La mujer vendrá a constituirse así en su deseo por el deseo masculino y será,

To mark the occasion of #LaborDay2019, I will transcribe an interesting, 91-year old #German text on #Marxism that has never entered the #internet before this post of mine. (I tried quite a lot to find the text, to no avail.) I will manually transcribe it, then translate it.
..
..I won't give the source, and also won't say WHY I don't give the source.

I repeat that it is a literal quote (from a 1928 publication), probably published during the #WeimarRepublic:

"#Marximus .. [ist] .. staats-, gesellschaft- und kulturzerstörend .. gegen jeden Staat,..
..jede Gesellschaft, jede Kultur ... ist #Marxismus ein #Aufruhr der #Eigensucht
gegen das #Gemeinwohl, also das Gegenteil jedes wahren #Sozialismus, denn Sozialismus muss stets das Wohl des Ganzen dem des Teiles voranstellen ... seine „Vorfurcht“ [sic; see dictionary entry

🎆It's the #FinalCountdown 🎆

Biden says if Trump can't comply with Congress' subpoenas, Democrats have no choice but to #impeach.

Rep. Green (Houston) wants to #impeach really, really, really badly.
🎆 #FinalCountdown 2 🎆

Congress is pressuring Trump and his administration with subpoenas. They're also considering consequences for non-compliance, such as jail and fines.

@JRubinBlogger thinks Congress should consider impeachment of administration members, such as AG Barr.
🎆 #FinalCountdown 3 🎆

Mueller is still a public servant, as his magic is worked as evidenced by @RubyWorms legal calendar.

U.S. prosecutors tell a judge that Stone can't see unredacted Mueller report.

Credico is being subpoenaed.

Assange faces U.S. extradition trial.

My birthmom and I testified in support of #HB2725 yesterday in the Public Health Committee hearing. Although our bill isn’t about reunion, it was a testament to the fact that anonymity in adoption is a myth. #AdopteeRights @txadoptees @gina_calanni
I’m an adult. I made the decision to reach out to my birth mom and she made the decision to reciprocate. The state should treat all adult citizens equally regardless of their connection to adoption. This might become a long thread...
Additionally, if my birth mom chose not to be in contact with me, why would my OBC have anything to do with that? We are adults and adoptees aren’t going to force contact with a birth parent or any other person for that matter.

@EricHolder has asked an important question:

#When was #America #ever #great?

I realize that there is a nearly unavoidable tendency to snort and spew one's coffee when they hear or read his question for the first time. But, honestly, isn't it worth the exercise to answer it?
So, @EricHolder, I'm going to do just that, and I'm going to ask my ragtag bag of followers and detractors to contribute as well.

I'm going to offer my evidence of moments of American greatness. And I'm going to ask those that read this thread to do the same.
But wait!

There's more!

I'm going to ask my detractors and antagonists (are you seeing this @fedupaton) to contribute as well, and will welcome from them both moments of greatness and moments of shame.

Digging into some of the literature in advance of a talk I am giving next week on LGBTQ+ and STEM. #lgbtSTEM

Will tweet some 'highlights' from the literature: mdpi.com/2076-0760/6/1/…
LGBTQ+ rights in STEM are not better with age, and it is not just about waiting for the older generation to die off. #lgbtSTEM

mdpi.com/2076-0760/6/1/…
There's a great graph in the paper by Cech and Pham. This is the "workplace experience" of employees in US based STEM federal agencies. 3 = positive, 2 = neutral, 1 = negative. LGBTQ+ have a systematically worse of experience. #lgbtSTEM
