Self-organized student actions, protests + walkouts are continuing non-stop throughout the United States against the passage of a variety of authoritarian anti-LGBTQ+ bills. A thread on recent actions. #TDOV #DontSayGay #LGBTQ
While largely ignored in the media, there's been a massive wave of walkouts, protests, and self-organized student actions over the past month.
Last Tuesday, "Disney employees and their allies staged a walkout from various departments and products to protest the company’s donations to the Republican legislators behind Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill."

The story of the #BuildBackBetter has yet to be written. Let’s examine the 50 Republican US Senators who are voting against lifting children out of poverty, education,elder care, affordable prescription drugs, child care & family leave? What does this mean for YOUR STATE? Image
#ALABAMA Sen. Richard Shelby is voting against the #ChildTaxCredit “The Center on Budget &Policy Priorities found making the program permanent would benefit 93% of #AL children,lift 162,000 #AL children above/closer to poverty line & benefit 480,000 #AL children under 17. Image
#ALABAMA Sen. Tommy Tuberville has offered you no solutions; he has admitted that he “wouldn’t have a clue” how to address the current pandemic and recently told people that $600 per week in federal unemployment benefits was just “too much.” al.com/news/2021/12/a… Image

An open letter to @RepDustyJohnson:

Although I am not a Republican, I had hopes that you would be the 1 member of our #SouthDakota Congressional delegation that would stand up for truth & our democratic republic.

Our democracy is under attack by those who answer
/1
not to the Constitution, not to the millions who exercised their constitutional right to vote in 2020, but to those who are drunk on power and will stop at nothing to hold onto it.

Fear of the wrath of the most powerful, and their misguided base, has silenced those who are
/2
supposed to defend our free & fair elections. The Jan 6th Committee, including 2 of your brave GOP colleagues, are seeking the truth despite personal cost yet you, with your inaction

Where shall I begin? #SouthDakota, at what point will you understand that you get what you put into something? What part of poorly educated beauty pageant contestant sounded like competency for any form of State Government?
School Board Directors are duly elected officials who have the same right to be able to govern in a safe and respectful environment as you do. Shame on you, @govkristinoem for not acknowledging the very real and present threats against these local officials.
“Over the last few weeks, school board members and other education leaders have received death threats and have been subjected to threats and harassment, both online and in person. The individuals who are intent on causing chaos and disrupting our schools—

Apparently, according to a letter just received from @govkristinoem, I am part of a radical left wing cabal, am despicable, a mob, & the stock I own is ending this country & I won’t stop till the Consitituition lies in tatters.
(My W River team won the state Bicentennial of the Constitution Competition & got flown to DC while Kristi was a cheerleader bouncing up & down & waving pompoms at sporting events.) Oh, & she takes a stab at teachers unions. My folks taught in South Dakota for decades.
They also ranched, raised two kids to love their neighbors, & my dad, the fella she just sent her hate mail to -asking him for money- was a genuine champion South Dakota cowboy who died last year. We buried him on the last day of #Sturgis, rodeo buddies unable to come due to

In 2015 I was invited to give a motivational speech at #SouthDakota #BoysState. I had to make a decision as I considered my speech that day. I could play it safe and tell a nice story how 30 year earlier I had sat where they are sitting and look at me now...OR
1/10
I could tell them how 30 years ago I was sitting where they are and had dreams that fell apart due to my own poor choices, about my addiction, my struggles and my recovery. I chose the latter.
2/10
If I had done the first I probably would have been invited back. I gave the second speech and was met by the #AmericanLegion commanding officer who shook my hand, scolded me for saying "fuck" to 16 & 17 year old boys and asked where to send the check.

I know no one’s surprised, but we need to call it out anyway. Today the Republican Party sealed their legacy w/Trumpism. They’re now & forever the party of racism, white supremacy, neo-nazism, domestic terrorism, conspiracy theorists & fact deniers. They own this. #GOPCowards
Republicans of conscience, now is the time. There’s no “saving” your party at this point. Now is your fleeting opportunity to come over to the right side of history & join the Dems. @SenBillCassidy @SenatorBurr @SenatorCollins @lisamurkowski @MittRomney @BenSasse @SenToomey
For the other 43 - the #GOPCowards - us REAL patriots will see to it that you’re stripped of all power & your big $ donors drop you.

To the REAL patriots: FLOOD YOUR SENATORS’ PHONES. Tell them how sickened you are, as one of their constituents. Contact info to follow (thread)

I've been analyzing US state #mortality data!

Tonight, let's start with comparing #SouthDakota and #NorthDakota!

#SD had 18% #excess #deaths, while #ND had a whopping 31%

As we know SD has the weakest Government #Stringency, while ND has stronger measures!

@govkristinoem
1/n
North Dakota had 31% vs the previous 3y average age-adjusted mortality.

@MLevitt_NP2013 @justin_hart @FatEmperor @AlexBerenson @EthicalSkeptic @tlowdon @Zigmanfreud @ianmSC @yinonw
Let's look at SD on a monthly basis. Note the shaded pink area is the Government Stringency. SD at the end of 2020 had the lowest stringency, but also significant excess deaths.

PETITION FOR TEXAS SOVEREIGN ACTION

Dear @GregAbbott_TX As NBCs of the United States for the preservation of the Union we petition you to call up the Texas Constitutional Militia, resubmit your case to SCOTUS, occupy all assets of Chinese nationalists suspected of high treason!
With the Constitutional Militia Mustered, SCOTUS will hear you case! and the other Patriot States will take similar actions to preserve these United States of America as a government of the people, by the people and for the people with the right to 1 legal vote per 1 voter.
Never has #TEXAS had a cause so just and righteous, so patriotic, so universal. For as Christ teaches, when we see America beaten up on the side of the road, we cannot pass by like the hypocrite and pretend his wounds do not need caring for. (cf. Luke 10:25-37)
