We should expect to see more talking head recommendations for how to alter the #voting process to address #coronavirus concerns. Voting by mail is going be a part of the solution.

Here's why I don't think it can be the whole solution for the #2020election

THREAD:
States should move to allow more voting by mail independent of recent developments. The @BPC_Bipartisan Task Force on #Elections recommends just that. We support moves by our friends at @voteathome to ensure all Americans have the option to vote by mail

bipartisanpolicy.org/report/logical…
That doesn't mean all states have taken the important steps to update laws and technology to administer an #election with a very high % of #voting by mail, and it's unlikely many can get up to speed before the #2020election. Many state legislatures have already adjourned

This morning my children will be in school, learning maths and playing in the playground.

Roadside Dad will be either driving or outdoors, keeping busy.

I am going to see my friend about filling out a consultatation response so I don't get run out of my own country.

What I hope you will be doing is taking a minute to fill this in and share!!

Otherwise proposed powers to effectively wipe out travelling life in the UK will pass unchallenged.

(Then can be applied to criminalise protest and homelessness too).

I get that some of you are just finding out about this now (my pinned thread from November explains what the proposals would do to me).

I get that some of you once had an experience with a bad encampment or whatever.

I hear you.

But hear me back right now, time is short.

People who think that @BernieSanders gets us closer to @AndrewYang's vision for America don't actually understand Yang's vision for America: A Thread

#YangGang #EndorseUBI
#Bernie2020 #NotMeUs

(1/16)
First of all, #Yang wants a unified America. One where there isn't a huge political divide and so much hate and conflict. He doesn't alienate anyone.

#Bernie is incredibly divisive and angry and will only cause tensions to rise if given the nomination or the presidency.

(2/16)
The #FederalJobsGuarantee goes against Yang's vision because #Yang wants to redefine work in an age where jobs are being automated away and where work that has intrinsic human value isn't being recognized by the market.

Det är svårt att föreställa sig om det som sker i Kina. Uppenbarligen samlar de in dissidenter. All internet trafik är spärrad utom de källor som kommer via den kinesiska staten. Det som pågår i Kina angående #Coronavirus är en krigshandling av främmande makt.
Det här viruset är
gjord av människan. Ryssland, Indien, Taiwan vet att viruset innehåller HIV.

Därmed är skiten tillverkad av människan. Det sägs att den slår hårdare mot kinesiska män än mot andra raser, vilket betyder att denna "attack" kommer ej från deras egna led.

Fortsättning följer.

Thread. 1. Reposting these images now with the title
"Iowa Math is the #NewMath." In my original post I called these #RoundingErrors. But they are not errors. This is exactly the way the Iowa Democratic Party wants the votes to be counted. #IowaCaucus
smartelections.us/iowa-new-math
2. From my post: "Because of the way the math was done at the caucuses, many precincts wound up with an extra delegate that got 'assigned' to one of the candidates at the end of the caucus. We were able to look at worksheets from 18 precincts that were posted on Twitter." #Iowa
3. "We found a strange process where numbers below .5 were being rounded up in multiple precincts. 6 of the precincts (1/3) had the unusual 'rounding up.' Of the 6 precincts with the "rounding up" - 4 were given to Buttigieg, 2 to Biden, and 1 to Warren. #IowaCaucuses #NewMath

#TELANGANA #MUNICIPAL #ELECTION #FORECAST

As per our team's assessment, TRS is going to perform really well once again in the state and expected to bag 72-78 Municipalities

INC can win 18-24, while BJP, fought it alone, is in place to win 7-13 Municipalities and a corporation.
#Continuation 1

BJP could have performed more than this figure,but lack of cadre strength except the northern part of the state affected them. Yet they did well considering their assembly figure

And they expected to win one more Corporation, Karimnagar, where polling is on 25th
#Continuation 2

The land is absolutely fertile for BJP & the future will tell this in detail

INC tried their best 2 hold on, yet couldn't counter TRS,they r losing certain areas 2 BJP as well. In the long run it will be seen in large

TRS is still the best choice of TS voters

The #BBC the “Political Correspondents” #Labour and the #Election a thread 👇

The BBC never regarded Corbyn (or any of us on the left) as legitimate political actors, we were always interlopers in a world they knew, it was shaped in their interests. 1
The left of Labour were a “disruption” to ordinary political reporting. The BBC political reporters have no cultural or social footprint in the movements, the wider social and political forces on the left in general, or in the Labour Party. 2
The BBC didn’t seem interested in cultivating them. The BBC did occasionally cover what was going on, but they did so as anthropologists, viewing the wider social movements as a sort of “tribe”, something to be examined as an oddity.

#TacticalVoting. A thread.

I ‘m not sure people ‘get’ tactical voting. In principle we understand the idea of not voting for our first choice in order to influence the parliamentary maths.
(1)
But we are still drawn, magnetically, emotionally or tribally, to the person or party we would like to win without objectively assessing whether that person actually has a chance.
(2)
This is not a #referendum. If the person you vote for does not win, you are left with nothing. (3)

Looking forward to giving the 2019 @theRSAorg President's lecture on #climateemergency and responses from government and business later. You can watch it here live here from about 6pm: bit.ly/2ou31Pk #RSAclimate
@theRSAorg @EnvAgency @ShareAction @GCAdaptation @WRIClimate @AdaptOurWorld @DefraGovUK @DFID_Climate @PRI_News @GRI_LSE @RSAEvents The #climateemergency needs to be at the heart of everything people do. It should not be given a cursory 10 minutes at the Board meeting before everyone gets back to “the business of business”. The climate crisis IS “the business of business”. #RSAclimate
@theRSAorg @EnvAgency @ShareAction @GCAdaptation @WRIClimate @AdaptOurWorld @DefraGovUK @DFID_Climate @PRI_News @GRI_LSE @RSAEvents The @IPCC_CH’s 1.5°C report is not only momentous because of what it says: it is a towering achievement because it managed to get scientists and government officials from forty different countries to agree on a single document. #RSAclimate

I belong to a military family and I have waited at home while my loved ones have been deployed to the Middle East too many times!(1/10)
Do you realize that later this year people who were born after 9/11 will put their lives on the line in a war that started before they were born? Tulsi pledges to put an end to regime change wars! She is a combat veteran herself and proud of her service since 9/11.She knows(2/10)

The #bullshit that @thedemocrats are #dropping like #deuces is truly preposterous.

Last week, following the lamentable hearing that established the apparent mental decline of Robert #Mueller, @chuckschumer tried to set a trap for @senatemajldr Mitch McConnell.
The normal practice of the Senate as to consideration of proposed legislation is for the proposed bill to be read aloud (or reading waived) and then for the bill to be sent for consideration by one or more Senate committees that have jurisdiction over the subject of the bill.
One of the bills that @thedemocrats and the #lapdancemedia have described as having been blocked by McConnell addressed certain requirements for the use and retention of paper ballots and voting records and providing funding for the #ElectionSecurityCommission to make grants.

@tatatrusts pumped in Rs. 600 cr. in political funding this year. This is more than a 100% hike in funding since the 2014 election, where the entity infused Rs. 220 cr. Could these funds not be used to create #infrastructure instead? (1 of n)
When #Modi was voted to power in 2014, I had observed (and the observation continues to date) the stock markets got bullish despite the not-so-great macro economic parameters. When a #government gets funding of the sort @tatatrusts gives, it has to pander to such #corporates. (2)
It is the prerogative of each organisation/entity how it wants to dospense its surplus, but with monies of such quantum, wouldn't it have been more worthwhile to help regions in need of infrastructural & other basic needs like #healthcare in the form of #charity? (3)
