The sad story of a small business crushed by draconian overregulation:
Hi @DrWoodcockFDA , I wanted to give you the human side of what's now done. I quit smoking w/ #vaping over 9 years ago, and w/ $400 I started my vape business. I was driven by an evangelical need to-1/12
to spread the word about this miracle that broke my 33 year 2 pack a day #smoking habit.
Business grew, and customers came, and then I realized I had a good thing going-helping people; it was brilliant-you could see the change in them for the better each time 2/12
they came. I decided I may have stumbled upon the #AmericanDream as I outgrew my 1st shop, moved and opened a second. All helping people. It grew from a thousand dollars a week to well over a million $ a year-with every cent of taxes paid, steady, fulfilling employment etc. 3/12

Who am I if I’m not a #DevelopmentalBiologist? A (long) thread. Today for #BlackInDevelopmental, I would like to tell you how I got here. I am a #FirstGen college attendee and graduate. I was raised in a single-parent household. We struggled financially when I was growing up. 1/ Image
I know what hunger feels like and have had the lights turned off. I know what it’s like to have holes in the bottom of my shoes from wear. I know what it is to love science. I have been a scientist since childhood. Collecting snails, thinking about how the world works. 2/
In spite of my parents’ inability to help me with schoolwork, I always did really well in school. I actually liked going. Partially for the normalcy it provided, partially for socializing, but mostly because I was curious and I was good at it. 3/

Tonight, @realDonaldTrump delivered a strong and inspiring message to the American people. Our country is strong, and our President is laser-focused on creating a better future for businesses and families.
.@realDonaldTrump's bold leadership has made a tremendous impact on SD. Since he took office, 16,000 jobs have been created in our state & new business applications have risen by 24%. We’ve secured 2 international trade agreements that create more stability for farmers & ranchers
Taxes are lower. Families are reaping the benefits of expanded opportunity. This is progress that only comes when the state & federal governments work together. I look forward to continuing to partner w/ @realDonaldTrump as we make the #AmericanDream a reality in SD & the nation.

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.

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.
