He plays one on TV - but the fact is, @MikeDeWine is nobody's moderate.

Under his watch, Ohio has fallen further and further behind. A few examples: 1/7 Image
1) He has proudly said he's the most anti-choice Governor in the country - and now Ohio kids who have been raped are forced to leave the state for medical care.

2) He has overseen the biggest bribery scandal in Ohio history - his hand-picked energy guy at it's center. 2/7
3) Ohio's #education rank has continued to fall - from 5th in the nation under Ted Strickland to 31st.

4) Our #jobs recovery lags the nation - and we still have fewer jobs here than we did before COVID.

5) He's responded to multiple mass shootings with *looser* gun laws. 3/7

Being a Woman is a dangerous job.

You may be killed by Islamic Morality Police like #Masha_Amini
Or raped and killed by a Police Officer like #SarahEverard

You may lose your Human Rights like the Women in #Afghanistan
* No higher Education, no Work, no Healthcare, no Voice
You may lose your Right to Control your Body. Forced pregnancies.
Like the #GOP wants to do to the Women and Girls in the States.

Or maybe you Never had any Rights like in Saudi Arabia. (Now things are a bit better.)
Maybe you were simply killed cause you were a babygirl.
Like some people used to do in China.

Today Women and Girls are Victims of #WarCrimesofRussia too.

Ladies, aren't we Blessed?!!!

Remember to #Vote when and where you can. Be seen and heard.
Justice. Equality. We are not Less.
#HumanRights are #WomensRights too.

Today is about celebrating our wins as #America’s #Workers. Thanks to the diligence of #LaborUnions we have #RightsForWorkers Thank You @UAW @NEAToday @AFLCIO @steelworkers @IBEW @UFWupdates @UAPipeTrades @IUBAC @UMAW_ @AlliedPilots @NUHW and more for your fight for us
As you enjoy this #LaborDay2022 know that the #TNGOP is actively trying to dismantle your rights to good paying jobs, paid vacation, holidays, benefits, safe work environments with their push for #Amendment1 they call it #RightToWork, but is actually #CorporateRight to bully
The supporters of this garbage like my opponent Scott Cepicky and our governor Bill Lee are open in their disdain for the workers of Tennessee, they know we lead the nation in low paying wages & that states that embrace the ability for Labor Unions to negotiate have better wages

Women’s Equality Day celebrates the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution in 1920, which guarantees all American #women the right to vote.

The amendment changed federal law & America.

The drive to win the vote was an extensive & diverse effort. But, it did not guarantee all women this right. Chinese American women fought for the right to vote until 1943, Japanese and other Asian American women until 1952.

American Indian women were only able to win the right to vote by fighting for it state by state. The last state to guarantee voting rights for Native people was Utah in 1962.

What is a #consensus mechanism?

Quick 🦉 fact before we dive in..

Did you know that the collective noun for a group of owls is a ‘Parliament’?

This is a great starting point to understanding #consensus mechanisms on a #blockchain
1/ A #consensus mechanism on #blockchain is the process by which participants ‘agree’.

A bit like #voting in a #parliament.

This simple diagram describes the basic process:
2/ #consensus is critical to #blockchain because it determines how #data is added to the #database - that is, how the next #block is added to the chain, which as we explained last week is secured by #encryption

At a family backyard BBQ last night one relative started sneering about Nancy Pelosi and President Biden. I interrupted and said I am tired of zero/sum thinking, of ppl expecting to be 100% happy always with the political situation... (thread)
Most of life is lived in the mucky middle. Sometimes things are as you like them, sometimes they're neutral, sometimes tolerable, sometimes it's not to your preferences at all. Changes happen in steps forward, backwards, sideways, stuttersteps...2
It's called adulthood. It's not always fun or easy. What we gain by "adulting" in a household is the power to choose.
Like being an adult being in government (usually) means being willing to do the boring tedious "adulting" stuff that makes a country run 3

I am going to give everyone a story of why I think so highly of Senator @Campbell4TN & it starts at the town she was mayor of #OakHill.
My aunt Tammy Coleman was an emergency & police dispatcher for Oak Hill for years she retired last year that started my family’s connection to this community. My sister as a 1st grader back in 2011 was diagnosed with glioblastoma which she lived 3 years Dying just after Christmas
If you know my dad Mckamey inspired him as he went white headed to be a Santa for kids in need during her last years, & he honors that daily to this day here he is from last Saturday celebrating his 63rd birthday. Back to the city Senator Campbell used to rep.

Does #ARKANSAS need a #GQP extremist as governor? Sarah accepted the endorsement of CPAC. Yeah - the same CPAC that just had nationalist fascist Victor Orban speak, as well as well-known white nationalists, US election deniers. #WhereIsSarah…
@JonesForAR is walking the whole state TWICE to meet and learn from actual Arkansans. He’s not a national figure phoning it in. Sara has not visited the state except the homes of wealthy donors. Arkansas needs an actual PLAN. Jones has that plan. Get registered, ready to #VOTE🗳
#Arkansas needs a governor that will hold the GOP majority Legislators’ feet to the fire. He’s pro-choice, pro-justice, pro-teacher. He has an infrastructure plan to bring AR into the 21st C… not the Race To The Bottom we are now in. Look at @JonesForAR and get ready to #VOTE🗳

Did you know? PSC Chair @TPridemore has decided that the public is too much for her to deal with. Can you image the hubris of being paid $120k/year from state taxes and deciding the people who pay your salary should not be allowed to listen to commission hearings? I cannot.
@TPridemore should be grateful that anyone wants to stay and listen to complex energy regulatory policy matters and should encourage members of the public to be as involved as they can and want to be. This is a common problem with elected officials - they let the authority of
their position go to their head. I wonder what the National Association of Regulatory Commissioners would think about this new rule that disempowers Georgians, given she is joining their board? Let's see. @NARUC what do you think? This ok?

2 months ago @jbsmileyjr came to Columbia to talk to @MauryCountyDems & took me back in time to an #election that felt devastating, because he told 1 of the regular stories about @HaroldFordJr’s Senate campaign. I volunteered for that campaign it was my 1st campaign to do so.
I loved hearing the story again about the guys in the Redneck restaurant saying they would #vote for Harold. I can still remember much of the phone bank script from that lifetime ago. @jbsmileyjr talking that same message is why I told everyone a while back that I believe in him
I believe @jbsmileyjr gets the idea beyond the hit the places that are going to #VoteBlue every cycle & go see other communities that are more purple than their recent past indicates. Revitalize that demographic. If @jasonbmartin wins this primary, I hope he gets that idea

1/ A 🧵for 🇺🇸: Every #American needs to understand what 9.2% inflation under Joe #Biden means for them and their family:

You are 9.2% poorer than you were under #Trump.

Let me explain:

- #Inflation means prices have risen, which essentially devalues your money.
2/ - Let's say that you made $15.00/hour under Trump; in this economy, you are making the equivalent of $13.62 per hour. Or a loss of $2,870 per year.

- That's right, you took a pay cut.
3/ - To make that up, the average worker must work 24 additional 8-hour shifts. That's just to afford the life you had under Trump.

- That's 24 days less with your family, friends, or to relax.

It's been quite a year.
A 🧵.
Today marks one year since I was fired for explaining TN's mature minor doctrine to physicians who were vaccinating teens against #COVID19. It's been a long, disturbing, challenging year. TN continues make things hard for Tennesseans.
Since my firing, TN has continued to be near the bottom for #COVID19 vax rates overall (43rd). Among children 5-11 it's (47th) w/ 0% improvement since 6/15. Among 12-17yo, it's 49th w/ 0% improvement since 6/15. TN is among states w/ the highest counts of MIS-C.
>26,500 Tennesseans dead-- that's 1 in 257 Tennesseans. Nearly half a million cases and 42 deaths in Tennesseans under age 21. Pfizer vaccine is now FDA approved for 12+ and authorized for 6mo+. Vaccines reduce hospitalization and deaths.

The link from @thedailyherald & conversation in @AD5NL’s 🧵 I understand, but I want to know from @MauryGOP followers on this. Does it bother you that the Mayor made a grandstanding gesture for some bogus fundraising quotes delaying @MauryCoSchools budget for the upcoming year
Just to fundraise off of something he knows can be overturned with a simple majority? Are you okay being used as a prop for his campaign as Andy demonstrates that he doesn’t care about the issues, and Andy refused to give an explanation on the actual issues inside the budget?
Has Andy ever shown that he cares for anything besides Andy? Ask yourself those questions as we enter Early voting.

@MauryCountyDems took the holiday to not tweet out it’s @AndyOgles list of self inflicted wounds on his course to a higher office. But I want to focus on 2 things he says that demonstrates our ability to use critical thinking. @ 1st glance these 2 areas Andy & I seem to agree
1. It matters who leads. That’s his slogan, & those words are correct, but the guy that over ruled the Mayor of Columbia @chazmolder working to protect his constituents caused @MauryRegional to have a mobile morgue. He stiffed @Columbia_TN on his idiotic #MuleFest to score points
He flatly demonstrated that he puts Andy above #MauryCounty. It does matter who leads & it’s why we need to rally around electing @Campbell4TN over Andy, Parks trying to get elected to skip sentencing, @BethHarwellTN who sold her perceived values from her bid for Governor out

🧵1/ This #IndependenceDay, let’s talk about how to keep our democracy. This is not hyperbolic—right *NOW* the GOP is enacting an *ongoing* coup 50+ years in the making. #53PickUp #VoteBlue
2/ Odds are you don’t have a strong understanding of US civics because our government didn’t *WANT* you to understand it. The GOP’s most reliable voting block are uneducated whites. They want it easier to dupe voters with diversions & propaganda. 🧵:
3/ It’s also easier to fool people into thinking the Democrats are purposely or incompetently messing things up if your audience doesn’t know how civics works. The GOP & enemy countries have massive & effective propaganda networks to turn public opinion. Image

🧵 Our current Attorney General, Mark Brnovich, has just waged war against Arizona women and our healthcare providers. Brnovich is falling back to a 100+ year old law, which would imprison doctors and others for providing abortion care.
This cannot stand. This will cause irreparable harm to our families, to our economy, to our businesses and to our healthcare providers. But most of all – this will harm women – and especially those women who already face numerous barriers to equitable healthcare.
As your next Attorney General, I will absolutely not allow the arrest or imprisonment of our reproductive healthcare providers, including doctors, nurses, PAs, midwives, pharmacists or others. This is outrageous.

Breyer, Sotomayor & Kagan's dissent:
"As of today, this Court holds, a State can always force a woman to give birth, prohibiting even the earliest abortions. A State can thus transform what, when freely undertaken, is a wonder into what, when forced, may be a nightmare .."
“No one should be confident that this majority is done with its work. The right Roe and Casey recognized does not stand alone. To the contrary, the Court has linked it for decades to other settled freedoms involving bodily integrity, familial relationships, and procreation"
"Most obviously, the right to terminate a pregnancy arose straight out of the right to purchase and use contraception. .. In turn, those rights led, more recently, to rights of same-sex intimacy and marriage. …

🧵on Colorado Primary Voting

I received my ballot in the mail a couple days ago and this thread will be an "unboxing" and explanation of voting in the primary for unaffiliated voters with sprinkles of how well our #VoteByMail systems work.

#copolitics #Vote
/2 So we are all on the same page, Colorado has a universal vote by mail system.

That means a ballot is mailed out to every registered voter. They can return it in multiple ways:
- by mail
- drop it in a drop box
- drop it off at a polling place
/3 Upon opening the envelope, one of the first things to come out is a handy instruction pamphlet.

It explains LOTS OF STUFF! What is in the packet, how to vote, where to return your ballot, how to track it, and how to determine the security of the election.
