Humans seem to be hardwired to need #companionship--I mean, permanent, life-long mutually vulnerable relationships that are non-familial. Currently, this is reduced to erotic relationships so many people are married/coupled and still cross-companionless. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
The psych data confirms that this is a real need but people need companionship across *multiple* spaces: physically (sexual & non-sexual affection), relationally (friendships and romantically), activity-based, but largely in the mundane, not the spectacular (like vacations), etc.
Across multiple spaces confirms, validates, and reaffirms that you're needed, you matter, you're a hero to someone, you're not alone, it's hard but we're with you, it's worth it, I'm suffering with you, you're forgiven, you're not a loser, it's ok to fail, and so on.

Up until three weeks ago I was a #border/ #immigration reporter working in #ElPaso. Let me tell you why President Trump’s visit to the #Borderland is so problematic. Follow this thread for more.
Honestly, @DrToddACurry put it best. #ElPaso has been the President’s “petri dish” for #immigration policies. Let’s take a look shall we?
Starting Sept.2017 @LasAmericasIAC starts reporting parent/children separation, despite legal documents showing relation. There was little I, as a journalist, could do when both parent & child were out of reach for interview & @ICEgov wasn’t talking.

1. Are @SteveScalise & his #KochBrothers masters are starting to get nervous about @AOC? In 1950 the top rate >$200k was 91%. Home with two car garage #americandream was alive & well. That's not a dream of only the left. Once a dream of all Americans before the @GOP betrayal.
2. How much money have you gotten from the #KochBrothers to betray your district Steve? If we can split LA1st white vote & 22% people of color come out to vote your on the street Steve. @LaDemos let's get someone teed up to challenge Steve. Don't wait for 2020. Do it now.
3. We can start a small social media task force to begin flooding employers in LA1st to show them how Scalise and the GOP is bad for business. Oh and I'm sure he took Russian money in 2016 so Steve is likely to end up in prison. But the key is he's working for Russia. Like Trump.
