"Bear Stearns had notional contract amounts of approximately $13.40 trillion in derivative financial instruments, of which $1.85 trillion were listed futures and option contracts." - National Debt was ONLY $9 TRILLION at the TIME! WHERE DID THE CRIMINALS GO?

About climbing my 1st 14er, campaigning for @PeteButtigieg at 14,000ft, finding community with strangers, an electrifying moment, and the biggest surprise of my life!
We arrived at the #MtEvans trailhead around 7:30am, the peak was lost in fast moving clouds. #14er
Mt Evans magnets & shirts don't lie, the GOATS! So awesome.
We had goats greet us at the trailhead, we kept our distance &
ogled them with delight. #14ers
#OhWhataBeautifulMorning
#TeamPete, I brought my @playmobil #minime & a #Pete2020 banner for some inspiring photos exploring #AmericatheBeautiful.
#SummitLake parking lot, with another 2,00-odd ft to ascend to the peak of #MtEvans, a #14er that I can see from my house, SE of Denver!

Just watched #ACapitolFourth. It was everything Trump's authoritarian event was not: Diverse entertainment (including Muppets singing G-d Bless America). #JohnStamos saying cool things about America. Vanessa Williams singing #AmericaTheBeautiful. Sousa. Fireworks. #July4thPBS
#AmericaTheBeautiful was written by #KatherineLeeBates, a #lesbian professor at #WellesleyCollege--alma mater of my mother and #HillaryClinton.

Bates was partnered for 30yrs with #KatharineComan, who founded the economics school at Wellesley.

#KatherineLeeBates wrote #AmericaTheBeautiful for #FourthofJuly.
My favorite line "mend thine every flaw" "thy liberty in law." Our #Constitution is meant to grow and breathe and fix what is wrong with this nation.

1. I am finally going to say what I REALLY WANT TO SAY! #TDS is absolute BS. I don't give a rip what gives it weight, at the end of the day, it is all these things: HATE, LOATHING, DISLIKE, ABHORRENCE, DETESTATION, ADVERSION, SCORN, DISGUST, CONTEMPT...
2. VENOM, REPUGNANCE, ENMITY, HOSTILITY, ANIMOSITY, MALICE - on and on. That's what #TDS actually is. So we have an uncounted mass of people who CHOOSE to act like all hell get out, and TDS is why they justify their actions?
3. I've been on this planet longer than some and way shorter than others. This sh*t goes into the shrimp bucket. Why shrimp? Because I hate it. I wouldn't put shrimp into my mouth if you paid me. I don't care what anyone says, it's "Hell No"!

Happy #Pride
I was expelled from my all-girls high school for being a #lesbian & put in a mental hospital for #conversiontherapy.

I became an #LGBT activist to prevent that from happening to other girls like I was.
Yet conversion therapy is still legal.
Happy #Pride
I memorialize every #lesbian who died hidden in the shadows because of #homophobia, who was forced into compulsory heterosexuality, who was made to live a lie. You deserved better. We honor you by making a safer world for lesbians today. Amen.

On #Pride I think of the #lesbian who became my mentor. She propelled me forward into lesbian #feminist writing. #AudreLorde opened a door for me I didn't know existed. I am so grateful she was in my life and left such a legacy for #lesbians.
