Some quick facts about @AndrewYang’s Freedom Dividend:

$1000 per month unconditional cash for every American 18+

Would equate to a 24% raise for somebody making $50k/yr

Can completely finance $100k student loan in about 8.5 yrs

Will NOT result in inflation because...
Inflation results from printing new money. Inflation also results from sharp increases in demand and/or sharp decreases in supply. The Freedom Dividend will not do any of these things.

The Freedom Dividend recognizes that we, as humans, have intrinsic value that is separate...
separate from economic value. The person who is homeless and unemployable due to mental illness will still have $1000/month income... money for food/water/clothing and creates an incentive for community leaders to build more shelters for part of that income stream.

2010 Clip: #PeteButtigieg pledged not to take money from Wall Street banks while running for state treasurer.

“It creates a conflict of interest. It creates an pay to play.” -#MayorPete
*same 2010 interview*

#PeteButtigieg’s low ethical expectations of his Illinois neighbors:

“Now I don’t want to pick on our neighbors to the west, but anytime you’re falling behind Illinois in any reform, ethics, or transparency issue I think that’s a bit of a wake up call.“
Pete has low reform, ethics, and transparency expectations for his Chicago neighbors yet took in a big haul of cash from them.

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…

If you think Pete Buttigieg worked to help an ailing MI Blue Cross Blue Shield cut costs to remain viable, this presentation by the Michigan Attorney Generals office in 2007 is really gonna blow your mind. (BTW 2007 is when #MayorPete had that BCBS gig.)…
Interestingly enough, 2007 was also the year Blue Cross Blue Shield tried to ram through a package of bills via political puppets that looked more like a giant Christmas present to themselves than legislation for the people.…
BTW this is the same "non-profit" MI BCBS that the MI Attorney General & the US Justice Department filed an antitrust lawsuit against. Suit was dropped when legislation was passed that barred them from their contested practices.…

🚨 Breaking: #PeteButtigieg donated to an anti-LGBT marriage equality candidate per 2012 FEC filings.

Pete’s donation came at a crucial time in the fight for marriage equality.

🎥: #MayorPete-funded candidate Joe Donnelly reiterating his anti-equality position during a debate.
Per the FEC report, the “Donnelly for Indiana” campaign recorded a $409 donation on September 17, 2012 from #PeteButtigieg “Mayor” employed by the “City of South Bend.”

Joe Donnelly campaigned on anti-marriage equality even as the issue gained more support under President Obama.
#PeteButtigieg’s September 17, 2012 donation to an anti-marriage equality candidate needs to be seen in the context of the 2012 push for #MarriageEquality:

On May 9, 2012, Barack Obama told ABC News, “I think same sex couples should be able to get married.”

#Thread The list is long on the “things” #MayorPete didn’t know while mayor of #SouthBend. It would be an #SNL skit IF he wasn’t a front runner for POTUS
2/ This is some of wat I knw: From the time I was a kindergarten student in #SBCSC— the district was & still is under a desegregation order 🤦🏾‍♂️
3/ And, for the ppl in the back, segregation doesn’t happen in schools, it happens in neighborhoods. #MayorPete is the mayor of every (segregated) neighborhood in #SouthBend

As a low income black mom I call bullshit.
I've worked in tutoring progs & a charter school but as an organizer I know this isn't true.
What is true is this is an old tired racist and classist stereotype born of ignorance.
Do better. #MayoPete #MayoPeteGottaGo #MayorPete
Not only have I always fought for my kids education but so do low income black parents in South Bend the very black voters he ignores and fails to communicate with.
Perhaps he should try meeting with them? #MayoPeteGottaGo #MayorPete
I was a Girl Scout leader and PTA president, VP and parent council president at Head Start as well as serving on Policy Council.
He shld ask the Michigan City IN school board abt me disrupting meetings to advocate for my kids when I was 19.

“Kids” from “lower income, minority neighborhoods” don’t have “someone they know personally who testifies to the value of education.” - Pete Buttigieg, 2011 South Bend Mayoral Candidate

#MayorPete #PeteForAmerica #Pete2020 #Buttigieg2020 #Buttigieg
🔦:The longer clip isn’t better:

#PeteButtigieg agreed (🗣: “definitely”) w/ Libertarian Pat Farrell that he/retired people could be mentors to kids.

Pete identifies poor “minority neighborhood” kids as needing mentors b/c no one they know “testifies to the value of education.”

Let's see which retweet bots are super excited about the third Democratic presidential debate. #ThursdayThoughts

@ZellaQuixote A duo of extremely similar real estate bots (@RealtorFairfax and @FairfaxVAAgent) were the first two automated accounts to retweet the preceding tweet. Based on a brief jaunt through their timelines, they seem more focused on retweeting political hashtags than real estate.
@ZellaQuixote @RealtorFairfax @FairfaxVAAgent The third bot retweet comes to us courtesy of @BernieBot_2020, which retweets various Sanders-related hashtags (#Bernie2020, #FeelTheBern, #NotMeUS, and #NoMiddleGround.) We've run across it before.

As mayor, he has deployed his Fire Department’s highly regarded Swift Water Rescue Group to help in flooded areas, like in North Carolina after Hurricane Florence.

Symbolism of the color palette used in @PeteButtigieg’s 2020 Presidential campaign: a thread
(📸: @WTVYNews4)
I went to the Design ToolKit on the website, and it turns out that each color in Pete’s campaign has symbolism to it. Pete thinks everything out very thoroughly, I didn’t even realize it went right down to the colors!
So, what does each color mean? I took the meanings off his website so you can view them in his thread! The page you can find it at is here:

THREAD: Hi, @youngsinick - some notes about your recent opinion piece about how @PeteButtigieg is “long overdue for a reckoning.” In forming, or at least presenting, this opinion you have left out a lot of information and context. I’ll provide sources.…
2/You address Boykins’ demotion (not firing as characterized), but leave out was due 2 lack of confidence as Chief since he was under investigation & did not tell the Mayor. Further proof he wasn’t fired-kind of hard to retire 5 years after you were fired.…
3/”No action was taken against the police officers and whatever language was used remains a mystery due to Buttigieg’s refusal to release the tapes.” 2 things: 1) Buttigieg has no legal authority to take action against the officers per state law.…

1/TYT, in their unending crusade 2 tear dwn Buttigieg, has shown again they r willing 2 misrepresent facts & mischaracterize events 2 meet their ends. This vid is latest example & while a lot 2 unpack, I’m going to focus on Cenk’s characterization of PD Chief demotion & the facts
2/Paraphrasing Cenk @ 4:30: “Black police chief (Boykins). Pete fired him. Why? There were tapes showing cops saying racist things. The police chief and other person revealed that information & it was inconvenient for Pete & SB so he was fired.” Lets break this down:
3/In court docs, officers - and Boykins - claim recordings began in 2010. Officers claim it was to monitor them for “loyalty.” These recordings allegedly continued for *two years* before Pete became Mayor.

In another thread, @Asians4Pete asked how we first encountered @PeteButtigieg. My story is kinda long (or maybe I'm just long-winded), so I'm starting a different thread. The operative word is "long" 😬. 1/31

I moved to the US to attend Notre Dame. One of the first people I met was the chair of the English department there. So basically, unlike most of my fellow Americans, for as long as I've lived in this country, I've known how to pronounce Buttigieg. 2/31
(Aside to @Chas10Buttigieg: Buddha-judge is not how you pronounce Buttigieg. As any #desi will tell you, that's not even how you pronounce Buddha.) 3/31

On my phone I went to @PeteButtigieg's Twitter feed to hit a link that brought me to his mobilesite that offered me a hyperlink to open up the YouTube app which allowed me to cast to my TV a gay millennial announce he is ruining for President. Possibly the most 2019 sentence ever
If anyone needs it here is the link to the YouTube Live Stream. @PeteButtigieg is about to officially announce his candidacy for President of the United States. It will be a historic moment. #PeteForAmerica

.@PeteButtigieg starts off his announcement with a prayer from local Reverend. #PeteForAmerica

(Very loud applause when @Chas10Buttigieg is mentioned)

Announcement is accidentally made by female in the middle of prayer. Rev says "listen to word of God." (Crowd goes wild).

The primary effort of the design charrette was to identify and resolve street "confluences," which were designed to move cars but actually create choke points for transportation and undesirable streetscapes and undevelopable blocks.
I'll attach some key slides from @IanLockwoodPE 's introductory talk about confluences and grids that kicked off the charrette here...
Fixing micro problems with deck parks only improves the condition immediately around the park, but exacerbates the choke point by making desirable space at the choke point. Whereas addressing the macro-problem by removing the highway and restitching the grid improves the network.

@PeteButtigieg I am a gay man (like you). I went to law school (like @ewarren). I live in NY (like @SenGillibrand). I am from the midwest (like @amyklobuchar). My father was a veteran and died of a glioblastoma (like @SenJohnMcCain). I am a jew (like @BernieSanders). /1
I support Israel (like @KamalaHarris) I am Spartacus (like @CoryBooker). I want to see an end to Islamaphobia (like @ChelseaClinton). I support stricter gun laws (like @fred_guttenberg and @davidhogg111). I believe in child care for all (like @ewarren). /2
I believe in reforming criminal justice (like @CoryBooker). I believe in being a bipartisan (like @amyklobuchar). I believe our system is sexist (so much love to @HillaryClinton). I believe that if I could just go on #TheView and talk to @MeghanMcCain she would listen /3

THREAD: I know 2020 is supposed to be the year of women but when I see @PeteButtigieg I see myself, a gay millennial. Its so powerful and I csnt help but root for him. It's not something a straight white Christian man can understand, no matter how "woke" they are.
I always wanted to go into politics but didnt bc I thought l one day when I came out that would be that. To see someone just like me do something I always wanted to but that I never thought was possible is forcing me to reevaluate everything. I thought I was well adjusted
To our current reality, gsy rights are starting to be recognized and in parts of the country we are accepted as equals. But the past few weeks seeing someone serious running for an office I thought I could never hold has got me thinking. I would never suggest we should
