Keep us posted please so we can get first-hand trustworthy information and reduce the over-reactions and panic. Best wishes.
#Texas @GregAbbott_TX has fewer than 600 cases of #coronavirus now. With a population of approximately 30 million, that's .0019%. #Americans are trying hard to be responsible & cooperate, but we cannot let government & doctors destroy livelihoods & thereby lives
@realDonaldTrump
The #President @realDonaldTrump is on top of all of this.
He's unleashing #American entrepreneurs to solve the problems.
Treat the hotspots.
#15daystoslowthespread will be enough.
#KeepYourDistance
But we must reopen soon.
We understand this disease is serious.

Didn't receive a response from #Texas Dept of Public Safety regarding my drivers license renewal. Notified I would have to renew in person...not online, but I did happen to see this posted under an unrelated topic: State extends the expiration date of some driver’s licenses 1/2
In an effort to fight spread of #coronavirus & keep people out of long lines in state facilities, #Texas Dept of Public Safety said Sunday it’s extending expiration date of all driver’s licenses to 60 days after end of the disaster declaration in the state of Texas #DPS #TXDPS
The decision applies to any #Texas driver’s license, personal ID card, commercial driver’s license or election identification certificate that expires on March 13, 2020 or later.

Ban on gatherings - orders by @MayorAdler & @sarah_eckhardt signed Mar 14. Sarah officially resigned Mar 10 to run for State Senator: communityimpact.com/austin/southwe… How was she able to sign off on the ban for Adler?
@GregAbbott_TX @KenPaxtonTX @TXAG

@sarah_eckhardt defends illegal aliens by throwing out their cases. Supports Travis County as a Sanctuary City. Consistently, she has proven her biased, partisan support of anti-Trump political activity & opposition. kut.org/post/judge-eck…

As public spaces + events are shut down due to the #coronavirus - the need for building mutual aid survival programs is now greater than ever, especially in the face of the dramatic failure of the State to respond to this crisis. Here's a thread for inspiration. #MutualAid
Last summer we talked to @simaleerbg of the @fcrcollective who organized a free store and free grocery program in #DC.
In #PuertoRico, for the past several years, people across the island have set up assemblies, squatted buildings, set up mutual aid community centers, and organized to carry out wide scale disaster relief in the face of hurricanes and earthquakes.

1-A lot of friends have asked me what they should be supporting w/ 💵& ⏰. Even if you have a favorite candidate or 2, for every $ you give to them, you should also give $1 to an org working to build the long-term infrastructure that will ensure no more Trumps for the long haul
2- these are orgs that register ppl of color & youth to expand the electorate in places like Texas & Florida. They are orgs that organize with communities often overlooked, to build power & recruit candidates so our bench is more representive of the party we SAY we want to be
3- Going to slowly add to the list of orgs & local candidates on this thread. Encourage others to tag in the ones I end up inevitably leaving out. I’ll start with state-based long term organizing. There are SO MANY good ones.

Just For Fun:
A #DEA officer stopped at a ranch in #Texas, and talked with an old rancher.
He told the rancher, "I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs." The rancher said, "Okay , but don't go in that field over there.....", as he pointed out the location.

1/6
The DEA officer verbally exploded saying, " Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government with me!" Reaching into his rear pants pocket, the arrogant officer removed his badge and proudly displayed it to the rancher. "See this damn badge?!

2/6
This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish.... On any land !! No questions asked or answers given!! Have I made myself clear?.... do you understand?!!"

An Anthropologist following Gandhi (2)

India's first Prime Minister famously said "Don't spare me Shankar" (a leading Indian cartoonist). But #Gandhi did not spare Shankar ;) I wrote about this in my book Caricaturing Culture.

An anthropologist following Gandhi (3)

#Gandhi tapped the power of #cartoons & #public communication early into his journalistic career in #SouthAfrica. Cartoons could be Satyagraha (truth force). His #newspaper the Indian Opinion published and interpreted British cartoons.

The man who shot and killed 26 people at a church in #Texas in 2017 used guns he wouldn’t have been able to purchase if the @USAirForce had properly managed its records.

Article by @IvanPentchoukov (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/the-illusion-o…
On 6 occasions, #Military officials failed to send Devin Kelley’s records to @FBI while the @USAirForce investigated, court-martialed, and imprisoned him for abusing his wife and stepson.
Rather than being an anomaly, the preventable failures that contributed to the massacre are a symptom of a vast problem spanning the entire federal government, according to two experts with decades of experience—Daryll Prescott and Don Lueders.

@MayorAdler #Homeless fights everyday. Many are #MHMR & spend their mental checks on #drugs . They like this #lifestyle , & it's all by choice. All in the same boat #homeless,
#insecure , #depressed , #stressed , #bipolar , #schizophrenic ; plus, they're #smoking #K2. Their mind isn't right
@MayorAdler Those providing GOVERNMENT services to the homeless like failed accountability @caritasofaustin and those involved in what's dubbed the “ #HomelessIndustrialComplex ," are invested in hiding the truth.
@MayorAdler @caritasofaustin We must ask how misrepresenting or even lying about what is going on, on our streets, might benefit
some PEOPLE, some AGENCIES, or some SPECIAL INTERESTS.

@GregAbbott_TX

Its called 21st Century Policing, an executive order signed by Obama, who took away the voice of LE and their knowledge/experience and & gave it to Academia & Activists such as @chrisharris101 They are in charge of POLICE policies now.
@GregAbbott_TX @chiproytx @DanPatrick

It's like allowing vultures to tell the sheepdog what to do. Refusing to lock criminals up isn't just stupid - it's an attack on OUR rights as a law abiding citizen. We can't allow this to keep happening! lawenforcementtoday.com/whats-happenin…

Here is a look at the past and a glimpse into the future. Austin has experienced many years of explosive growth that brought with it millions of tax dollars. The Austin city government thought and still thinks that the annual cash windfall will never end.
They spent money like crazy without much thought to the future. A few Boondoggles: The Dell contract to link all city departments. The Waller Creek project that had to be stopped and redesigned due to height issues. The purchase of a wood fired power plant. Downtown toilets.
That is just a few but they illustrate how incompetent @MayorAdler 's @austintexasgov is, and there is a direct correlation at how amateur incompetent reporters such as @daustinsanders w/ the @AustinChronicle believe that they actually give Austinites THE STRAIGHT DOPE.
