What is happening in Texas is terrifying and unimaginable. It is also part of a global attack on trans people, fixated on trans youth as a gateway into attacking all of us. If you want to take action start with Texas but do not stop there.
Always donate to trans-led orgs first. In Texas, you can donate to TENT: If you want to find trans-led orgs around the country, check out @TransJusticeFP.
Make sure you are also working to stop the bills that would make it a crime to affirm trans kids or would civilly ban medical care. These are pending in Alabama, Idaho, Oklahoma, Tenneesee and Arizona.

1/Welp, I spent last night continuing my research into the #blizzard2022 #hoax.

Thankfully, @Twitter and Facebook have helpful algorithms that pointed me in the direction of *real* experts who helped me round out my thinking.
2/I studied poignant, analytical memes from leading thinkers in finance, technology, and art sales.

To my surprise, their insights actually CONFIRMED all of my pre-conceived notions about this storm.

Thanks for the research help @Twitter!
3/All of this research has led me to conclude that the hype around #blizzard2022 is being driven by the weather-industrial complex.

In short, it is all #propaganda.

I am concerned for our republic.

I am the parent of a sophomore JV football player at Quince Orchard HS @QOAthletics. I write re: the MoCo Board of Health Regulations issued on March 12, 2021, which limit play in our community to “low- and medium-risk sports.” As per the County's website, football is a... 2/
...“high-risk” sport for Covid transmission, so the new order effectively prohibits football play in the County. Please, recategorize football as a “moderate-risk” sport so that players across MOCO and the MCPS school district may play a short “fall” season, as planned. 3/

Some involved with HS athletics are reporting to us that @GovAndyBeshear will refuse the @KHSAA’s 16-2 vote to allow fall sports. No indication on if that will be today or if he will wait until tomorrow, which is the day practices & tryouts are scheduled to begin. #LetThemPlay!
This shouldn’t be a surprise but if it’s true, it’s a bad look for @GovAndyBeshear. What a complete jerk to wait up until the last min to break these students hearts. He fired the Ag policy director during the week of the State Fair, so his panties must be on a wad this week.
If this does happen, the @KHSAA board can call another meeting to approve a modified option that could allow low-touch sports like track & field, & field hockey, to move forward, but not high-touch like football. The final say on that option would also be up to @GovAndyBeshear.

The @KHSAA’s vote yesterday approved fall sports. Under plan, practice for these sports can begin Monday, Aug 24.

Is @GovAndyBeshear going to wait until Monday to dash these kids hopes & dreams?

If an announcement is made today, expect it to be a “strong recommendation.”
If made Mon, it hopefully signals it’ll be mere “advice” to not have high contact sports play until Sept 28.

The vote was an overwhelming 16-2. We don’t think @GovAndyBeshear has the political capital at this point to completely override such a mandate by the @KHSAA board.
For these kids sake, we hope @AndyBeshearKY will take the most subtle position of opposition. One that will #LetThemPlay!

There are 43,106,877 people in the US age 15 through 24.

That’s 43.1 MILLION!

225 of this age group died with Coronavirus over a six month period.

This is 1.23 people per day.

Stop destroying 43 million people over this! You are causing damage!


There R 104 MILLION people in the US under the age of 25.

29,486 in this age group died from Feb through July.

270 of those deaths are Coronavirus.

We don’t stop life for 104 MILLION people due to 29,486 deaths. Don’t stop it for 270. It creates death via abuse, ODs, suicides.
Mid March to mid July, there were FIFTY THOUSAND non-Covid deaths in the US above usual levels!


You tell me!

Healthcare spending in the US April-June was 24.3% lower than April-June 2019 despite Covid spending.

Context: Economy overall was down 9.54%
