Companies tied to housing revising guidance due to supply chain. Commentary from our builder survey this month indicates things getting worse before they get better. Homes sitting, waiting for materials (dead days). Big delays in windows. Delta outbreaks. In sum, a crapshoot. 🧵
#Nashville builder: “It's a crap shoot. Some municipalities will issue permits in 1 week, & others are 6-9 months behind. Supply chain is a mess. Windows are now 7 months out, cabinets are 6 months out, etc.”
#Chicago builder: “Build cycle increased due to backordered materials including bathtubs, appliances, & ceramic tile. Trades are much more limited in availability & now have some ‘dead days’ with no activity.”

So there are students and parents in #The3rd that are requesting a 1 time waiver to play sports w/a 2.0 gpa/lower this 2021/2 school yr. This should be unanimous support from our school board, but it saddens me that politics is coming before our students.
I have a resident that contacted me about this issue. I had to be honest and say that the 3rd district school board rep does not communicate w/me. She uses social media instead of calling my city cell. I was told that she was in support of this waiver issue. 😳 @KenyaRVA
Let’s not forget that we are still in a #pandemic 😷 There should be exceptions for the last school year especially if a child/parent had #Covid. Everyone had to make adjustments some more than others w/o much success.

Analyzing June new home sales & pricing figures from our monthly builder survey. As one builder noted: “It’s not fun to be a builder anymore.” Lumber relief is nice but pick your poison on other issues. Market commentary from across the country to follow...
#Richmond builder: “It's not fun to be a builder anymore. Cost pressure is killing us. Not only will builders like myself who take 12-24 months to build a house lose margin from increases, but the affordability is becoming a major issue.”
#Atlanta builder: “Costs have driven up prices & we’re no longer preselling. We will not sell a home until frame stage, so our sales numbers are off for June while awaiting framing stage.”

For you two @SonnieJohnson @JaVonniBrustow ...

A History of the Lily-White Movement - Richmond, Virginia

"In 1920, state Republican leaders decided that in order to win, they needed to establish a “lily white” image. At their state conventions in 1920 and 1921, ... Image
@SonnieJohnson @JaVonniBrustow ..., the Lily White Republicans barred black voters from attendance. Black delegates were not seated in 1921.

Racial justice did not make it onto the platform. Image
"In response, 600 Black delegates met in Richmond on September 5, 1921, and nominated their own Republican candidates for state office—all Black." Image

Michele Gilbert Moffatt, a Registered Nurse active with #Richmond #Antifa faces 3 felony charges for harassing RPD officers by posting home addresses last year.

Police arrested & seized her electronics. She's been released on 1k bail.
Her Twitter has been ID'd as @justthemedic thanks to the chest tattoo (If you're going to do an anon twitter account maybe don't post that?)

Social Media activity shows advocating violence and connections with Molly Conger, Goad Gastby and other #Antifa

wric.com/news/local-new…
The account that was setup around that time to harass officers is likely "RPDID2020".

She's married to a doctor in Richmond who has sent money to her Antifa friends before. No indication of his involvement beyond that.

Due to the recent #ChevronRefinery #oilspill near #Richmond, I’m sharing “Refined?” a birds-eye view of the refinery. This artwork is in a series about water & land use policies… THREAD 1/9
…inspired by a talk by poet #GarySnyder. He gave us a quiz entitled “How Local Are You?” He asks: “Do you know where your water comes from?” “Do you know where it goes when you are done with it?“ “Do you know where your garbage goes?” and so on. 2/9
I didn’t know the answers to many of his questions and and he inspired me to learn. As I researched where my sewage & garbage go & where my gasoline is refined & noticed were all on #sanfranciscobay. 3/9

John Lewis- not that one, the other one who everyone entering #Richmond Park should thank for their ability to do so (he’s on #Sheen Gate if you want to do so personally). In 1755, he came to #Sheen Gate, and attempted to walk through, after a carriage been through (thread) Image
This was an act of rebellion because #Richmond Park’s appointed Ranger, Princess Amelia, had chosen to restrict entry to the Park to people with carriages and special tickets- basically, her mates.
In doing this, Amelia was simply continuing the progressive exclusion of ordinary people from #Richmond Park which kicked off with Charles I enclosing what was previously farmland, and common land with a wall so he could hunt. He was reluctantly compelled to provide ladderstiles.

This weekend, Trump applauded his supporters, who hurled racial slurs at children, intimidated voters outside polling stations + in some cases, opened fire on counter-protesters, as police stood by + violently attacked anti-racists demonstrators. A thread. itsgoingdown.org/trump-applauds…
As Trump's numbers tank, he has embraced the only path left to him to stay in power: stealing the election. With Trump making public his plans, his base this weekend hit the streets + ratcheted up the level of violence. axios.com/trump-claim-el…
For months there has been an escalation on the far-Right - with militias and Boogaloo groups plotting to even kidnap and murder Democratic officials. npr.org/2020/10/08/921…

The #UKGovernment Torture Report

This is a very short overview of what the #UKAuthorities have done in the case.

#PraiseTheLORD #PraiseGod #Borisjohnson #Downingstreet #PritiPatel #UKParliament #Dailymail
In 2005, I set up a business selling CDs, namely mixtape CDs after graduating from Uni.

In 2006, my home was raided & my business was stopped. They said the CDs I was selling were in breach of copyright.
It was a complete shock as the exact same CDs I was selling were prevalent on most high streets and supermarkets. They were selling in their thousands in places such as #Tesco & #HMV. And #Woolworths were the actual UK Distributor of these CDs.

Far-Right trolls + white nationalists are promoting an obviously fake "ANTIFA" troll account calling for violence in "white hoods" in order to both scare the public but also whip up potential violence against ongoing #GeorgeFloyd demonstrations from the far-Right. A thread.
Fake "ANTIFA" (for some reason, the far-Right loves all-caps) Twitter and social media accounts have long been a tool of the far-Right in both attacking antifascists and encourage violence. buzzfeednews.com/article/craigs…
Example: when "Official Antifa," long-running fake account, promoted the lie that antifascists were going to vandalize graves of Confederate soldiers at Gettysburg (there are none). This false claim was then promoted by grifters like Jack Posobiec + Cassandra Fairbanks.

The scene at the corner of East Main and 14th right now.
Colette McEachin, Richmond’s Commonwealth’s Attorney, is at the 17th Street Farmers Market, where hundreds are gathered for a demonstration. She praised people in attendance today for making their voices heard peacefully.
As for protests the last 48 hours, she said she hasn’t seen anything like them in 30-plus years here.“It’s been horrible. Absolutely horrible. Everyone is absolutely sickened and disgusted. Nobody who lives in Richmond is happy or proud about what has happened this past weekend.”

I would never try to predict what is likely to happen in #richmond tomorrow, but let me just provide some context of why I am hopeful violence will be averted and why that is mixed news. 1/
The #richmondrally has the benefit of two key features that are always desirable in a high risk event: 1)notice, meaning resources can be deployed, plans made, public notified, etc. and 2/
2)lessons learned, meaning what happened in Charlottesville is now known to have been the result of poor planning, so everyone has adopted changes. The motto "Go big or stay home" describes the state of emergency to the FAA ban of small aircraft/drones to National Guard. 3/
