I don't like Islam.

Can I still say that in America?

I am an American and I reject Pakistani blasphemy laws.

If twitter wants to be Sharia compliant they can just ban me now.

Free speech doesn't care about religious feelings.

Buh bye!

I couldn’t sleep last night (still on LA time)

For wtv reason, the first time I met Steve Montador popped into my head & so I decided to write about it instead of ruminating in bed with the thoughts of our first meeting

It was after the 2006-2007 season & I had just played...
2/ 18 games with the @ArizonaCoyotes

I was 22

I was asked to do @heylandsberg’s Off The Record show

It was my first real interview on tv where I wasn’t dressed in hockey equipment and delivering the standard hockey answers that r so ingrained in us...
3/ Needless to say, I had a lot of anxiety about the interview so naturally, I went to the bar that was located below the studio to pound back 2 @Molson_Canadian drafts to ease the over thinking and feel more comfortable in my own skin

I then made my way up to the studio...

The crisis we are experiencing today was probably inevitable. This has been in the works since the founding of this nation.

It has to do with power, who gets it. and why.
Considering how we got here can show us how to get out.

1. Many of us see that Trump as a tyrant and unfit for office in every way, yet his supporters honestly see him as a true leader. They forgive his abuses yet will spend billions to stop a brown person from doing the same.
Why? The unhealthy hierarchy.
2. As a social species hierarchy is part of life and affects all of us.
However, while hierarchy itself isn't bad (someone has to teach the dog to pee outside) who gets the power and how they treat others once they have it determines if it's a healthy or unhealthy system.

The #Democrats are building their own wall, a growing wall of #BigGovernment statism, endless war, globalism & higher taxes that race toward #socialism.
#1 of #5
It's a wall that blocks us from our liberties including our right to own a gun & the right to engage in free speech. It’s a wall that censors & controls minds by means of lying, fake news corporate media.
#2 of #5
It’s a wall that protects a massively corrupt Deep State from receiving justice.

@SpeakerPelosi, tear down your despicable, fascist, blue wall & allow our @POTUS to construct a legitimate one along our southern border.

I was in Clacton, in a living room with Sarah, brother Sam & daughter Linda, small children & a few pets. All three adults voted Leave & UKIP.

This #TuesdayThoughts, I want to share bits of their story with you.

How did that happen? I asked Sarah.

"There are so many English families living in one room, yet they're letting all these in and they're housing them, having houses built for them!", said Sarah.

Who is being housed, I ask? Have you been waiting for a long time?
Brother Sam cannot walk after an accident and is unable to work. Sarah has a lung disease and also has been out of work for a few years. It's only Linda who works in the household, who has two small children and no qualifications. She's working on a vocational qualification now.

Lita! Lita! Please wake up!” I screamed holding her lifeless body.
“Mum, you’ve killed her. I guess you’re happy now.” Bola said wryly as tears streamed down her eyes.

“Take this.” She said handing me a note.
It read.
“Mum, All efforts to make you happy have proved futile. I guess my corpse will bring you joy.
Signed: A broken child.”
My reaction.
A cold chill ran down my spine. Flashes of my past actions came in quick succession.

Welcome to 2019 & #HappyNewYear!

This year, as we continue to build the #BlueWave2019 & #BlueWave2020, I challenge myself & all of you to build selfcare into the daily routine.

If you thought the midterms were nuts, wait till this cycle hits!
So what does it mean to build self-care into the routine?

Haha, trick question!
It's different for everyone!
I know, we all want easy answers.
Sorry, no can do.

So today, as we're all recovering from last night's celebrations, come up with 3 things.

Here, I'll start!
1- Hydrate: No, don't drink more coffee. ☕ Drink water. Or tea. Or Gatorade!

2- Go Outside: Because "cave dweller" isn't a good look for me. Walk and do @ZombiesRunGame.

3- Eat Better: Eat breakfast. Before noon. I WILL adult, gorramnit!

What are your 3?
#SelfcareIsResistance This is the year I will be stronger, braver, kinder, and unstoppable. This year I will be FIERCE.

1. A few thoughts about this thorough and interesting profile of Mike Pence (thanks to @stephenbottomly for pointing me to it). There's good background here on Pence's religious ideology, ambition, and political career.…

2. I have a couple of quibbles. This one is fairly trivial, but @mckaycoppins, please take note--I'm a Hoosier, and no one in Indiana considers Columbus "a suburb of Indianapolis." By now, some may consider it an exurb, I suppose, but definitely not a suburb.
3. More substantively, as is all too typical for @TheAtlantic, I find this piece annoyingly sympathetic to evangelicals' and other conservative Christians' sense of being "beleaguered." THEY. ARE. NOT. PERSECUTED. They are pathological authoritarians

#TuesdayThoughts: I wasn't able to be as productive as I wanted to be this year given an (often-ass-kicking) autoimmune disorder, but here's a thread of a few highlights.

As always, I remain so grateful to you all for your continued support.❤️
First, I am very proud of co-editing, with @m_hild, Reconsidering Southern Labor History: Race, Class, and Power. We had perceptive, brilliant scholars contributing essays on a wide variety of topics. Look for the paperback release in 2019!…
Second, was absolutely honored to be asked to write a piece commemorating the life and legacy of #MartinLutherKing #MLK for the National Civil Rights Museum. I chose to write about #poverty and the #PoorPeoplesCampaign:…

In February 1974, whilst recovering from dental surgery, something profound and inexplicable happened to author Philip K Dick that changed his life forever. Was it an illness, a psychotic reaction, or something truly mystical?

This is the exegesis of Philip K Dick...
Philip K Dick was both prolific and influential. In his youth he came to the conclusion that, in a certain sense, the world is not entirely real and there is no way to confirm whether it is truly there.
By the end of the 1960s Philip K Dick had published over 40 novels and stories, as well as winning the 1963 Hugo Award for The Man In The High Castle. But he still struggled financially...

The trauma of being dickmatised set in barely 5days into Segun's departure for South Africa.
Adjusting to a new life without him was difficult.
6months seemed like 6centuries.

Brethren, issa thread.
#feeltheeagle #TuesdayMotivation #TuesdayThoughts
Before we proceed lets have a recap of PT 1& 2.
Bisi was in a relationship with Segun. Her sexual urges were uncontrollable. This led to series of abortions

Según travelled to SA on a 6month training for his new position at work.
(Check the thread of my pinned tweet to catch up)
Let’s get down to business.
Shall we?

Please do well to retweet. I see lots of votes on the polls compared to retweets.

BREAKING: MSNBC reporting that Mueller has released the Flynn memo, some is redacted, recommends 6 mos in jail. Essentially all info in re the ongoing investigation has been redacted. 2 counts of false statements listed..More to come.
The Flynn Memo evidently also lists a total of 19 meetings with SC, and says that the Defendant has provided significant information and cooperation. There's also a comment about collusion. I haven't read it yet..make sure you watch @maddow at 9 et.
I find it very interesting and not at all insignificant that so much of the filing is redacted..that indicates to me a lot of sensitive information. Not necessarily a bad thing-productive investigation, which could be bad for Pence, (if I may speculate a bit.)

"The gov't continues to claim broad authority to deny reporters access to the WH for asking tough questions. And no Constitutional 1st Amend right to WH access.." THIS MATTERS, kids! #TuesdayThoughts #FreePress…
2-"...Once the White House has decided to hold a press briefing, it can’t constitutionally use formal levers of power, like the revocation of a hard pass, to retaliate against a reporter for asking questions the government doesn’t like or for coverage the administration resents.
3-"That’s content-based retaliation for protected speech; and its prohibition is a central First Amendment principle...the revocation of Acosta’s hard pass escalates a broader trend by this White House to retaliate against media whose reporting it doesn’t like and to wield such

On Sunday between five hundred and a thousand caravan migrants carrying their country’s flag bull rushed the border. They screamed profanities and hurled rocks and bottles at the brave Border Patrol men and women protecting our nation. #2
The Border Patrol was correct to use non-lethal tear gas to break up the horde of invaders. They are defending our nation’s border from an invading force, complete with weapons, (however crude) and flying a foreign nation’s flag. #3

3/"“There is always an intel person there for a briefing like this,” a Senate staffer told the Guardian. “It is totally unprecedented and should be interpreted as nothing less than the Trump administration trying to silence the intelligence community.”
