This will not have the impact on #housing that you think that it might. This is insufficient.
...“we can still get evicted after that moratorium is lifted if we're so behind on everything, that we don't have all of the back #rent ready? What if the landlord doesn't want to work with the tenant on paying them back in increments..?"
“it’s like a #rent “loan”. It helps in the beginning, but you better hope you make 2-3 times the amount when you're allowed to go back to work -otherwise you'll be in rent debt. It’s basically kind of a #housing band-aid.”

@daralynn13 @PensiveTM Wait - did you see his tweet that speaks to this? Or are you being intentionally obtuse? Did the domestic workers stop boycotting buses bc Congress wldn’t act? Did Eugene Debs, Lucy Parsons, Mother Jones stop organizing for #Labor bc the same? -> https://t.co/Wc6Qa00O8x
@daralynn13 @PensiveTM It takes a movement. It takes a movement of people agitating, educating & organizing. That’s the way change has always happened in this country —bottom up not vice versa. + That’s been w/out a President who commits 2 using the bully pulpit on issues he’s advocated 4 decades.
@daralynn13 @PensiveTM What did it take to end child labor? Waiting for a friendly and more humane Congress? Stop pretending to not understand. You appear quite intelligent. Get on our side.

When I “officially” endorsed #Bernie2020, the campaign asked for a “short” statement for a graphic.

I'm wordy; wrote a whole page. Oops.🤓

It’s hard to distill why I believe so strongly in this #BigUS movement & @BernieSanders, but I’d like to share my attempt.

A thread...
(1)
@BernieSanders The part of my statement that made it on the #BernieSanders graphic boils down to one word:

TRUST

Bernie’s stances are grounded in principled judgment, proven to be right & just for decades. His policies prove to be successful when enacted. I know who he'll be once elected.
(2)
@BernieSanders My passion & purpose is #PublicEducation, so my endorsement is also rooted in that.

#Bernie’s full platform - from #MedicareForAll to #CriminalJusticeReform - will have profound positive impacts on students, communities, and the ed profession, in both direct & indirect ways.

1/ For the December #DemDebate @JudyWoodruff @IAmAmnaNawaz @Yamiche @TimAlberta please consider asking questions that have been ignored so far like the #deficit, #infrastructure and how they will get their agenda passed with a slim Senate majority.
2/ For tough candidate-specific questions, @JudyWoodruff @IAmAmnaNawaz @Yamiche @TimAlberta consider challenging #MayorPete on his experience or #BernieSanders on his questionable history in Latin America (including refusal to denounce dictators who were on the left) #DemDebate
3/ Two other overlooked areas @JudyWoodruff @IAmAmnaNawaz @Yamiche @TimAlberta should consider are (i) #housing and the #HOMELESSNESSCRISIS (a big issue here in LA) and reviving #labor rights in the new economy. #DemDebate vice.com/en_us/article/…

Today’s #employment report was considerably stronger than anticipated, allowing for manufacturing-sector strike activity and with the substantial upward revisions to #job numbers over the past two months. Yet, clearly, employment growth is slowing some.
Still, the demand for #labor exceeds historically moderate levels of new entrants into the workforce, which has helped to bring the #unemployment rate down persistently over the past 10 years, to 3.56% today.
The question now is whether a moderating #employment cycle, alongside of an #economy faced with great uncertainty over the past few months, will see some bottoming and improvement from here, or not?

@TheCollectiveQ ...11 is the number of human sacrifice. Date 11/12 (9+2 = 11) (2+1+9 = 12) = 11/12 = 11+12. "23". THEY LOVE "23". THEY LOVE September (9the month)/23 = 9/23. How often do we see that in predictive programming? Sank at 64ft depth. 64, "the cumulation of all things". The completion

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

Thread. This is a response to a conversation on @nhannahjone ‘s timeline a couple of days ago about slavery. She argued that for most of U.S. history, “black people were set completely *outside* of the class structure.”
threadreaderapp.com/thread/1102545…
That slaves, “As non-people, as property, as a tradable commodity, they were classless. Their race meant they had NO class.” Most people on her TL agreed with her. A few were puzzled and skeptical. In another tweet in response to a critic she said:
“Can a table or a mule be part of a class. If so, then, yes, AMerican slaves were part of a class.” The idea that enslaved people were regarded as property is a contradiction on its face, as many scholars have argued. Slaves were commodified for the purpose of exploiting their

HISTORY LESSON FOLKS

🔴In 1943 The Institute of Public Affairs aka @TheIPA was established by notable businessmen in response to an outstanding win by Labor in the Federal Election in same year

🔴Their intent was to SMASH LABOR, the UNIONS and to fight SOCIALISM.
🔴In the following year @TheIPA established the Liberal Party of Australia.

😩You can see ‘NOTHING HAS CHANGED’.

🔴These TORIES LOATHE LABOR & the UNION MOVEMENT hence ⚠️@ScottMorrisonMP > #UnionThugs campaign.

NOTE #NeoLiberals, #Libertarians DO NOT ACT in the PUBLIC GOOD
#UnionThug

🔴Ever wondered why Joe Hockey & Tony Abbott allowed / facilitated the demise of the Australian CAR INDUSTRY > it was because they were targeting UNIONS, the car industry was perhaps the most UNIONISED of all industries.
🔴Tories LOATHE #UNIONS
except their @TheIPA

These were “work or fight” laws originally issued during World War I to require able bodied men to either serve in the military or find civilian jobs. In the South, there was already a long tradition of coercing black labor through vagrancy laws. Black men were disproportionately
arrested under “work or fight”. But the white South originated something wholly unintended in the law by targeting black WOMEN. A military conscription was used as a pretext to force them to work as domestics in white homes, at precisely the time other jobs were opening up
for them in the war industry. Maintaining white domesticity was considered too important to sacrifice and thus was treated like a war aim. White women were not expected to perform their own cleaning, cooking, washing because that was consigned to black women.

Outtakes from the #DNC Executive Meeting in #PuertoRico (thread)

Chair promises a 2020 process that is fair. Will release a protocol on debates soon; expect debates in summer 2019 . Will decide by March 2019 the Host City for 2020 Convention: Houston, Miami Beach, or Milwaukee.
We have worked hard to rebuild trust on our presidential process. Rules and Bylaws Cttee working with early states on rules. A key rule change ends superdelegates voting 1st round absent consensus candidate BUT elected officials can still be PLEOs & not run against constituents.
The PLEO Party Leader Elected Official designation is for pledged delegates who are Members of Congress Governors etc who want a first round #DNC convention vote but don’t want to run against activist to get there.

The #legitimacy of any form of #government is not and cannot be based upon #consent, but upon how well it protects the rights of those who refuse to consent.
When the bullshit is stripped away, #Socialism is #theft, and can never be a moral form of political economy, because it cannot protect the rights of those who refuse to consent to the theft of their earned wealth. Those who do consent are not prevented under any other system…
from engaging in #voluntary #cooperative #ownership of #capital. Therefore, #Socialism is not defined by voluntary participation, but by #coercion, or #theft, a universal #moral harm. #Intent is not #magic. Good intent and good works do not and cannot excuse the theft.
