I just gotta say this, and it might take a while and I am probably gonna cry...

I get into a lot of discussions with people who have no idea the state of world we were actually in leading up to @realDonaldTrump, nor where it was going to end up. Thank you God!!!
The #AmericanPeople have been forced into basic slave labor. Unions took over personal #freedoms in the work place, making it impossible to do anything without the #mob without risk of getting fired. #Unions also allowed people that did nothing to keep their #jobs
without recourse. #Goverment stepped in and made it necessary to have a #supervisor, #assistantsupervisor, #manager, #directingmanager, they gave quotas on #race and #gender that had to be met. They all but destroyed #business in #America

Born & raised in #Fanar #Lebanon, a tiny country in the middle east with a lot to offer. I always had a positive outlook on life maybe because of the culture or values🤷‍♀️.
If you don't know #Lebanon or a #lebanese then you should start mingling 🤣

I grew up surrounded by a loving, joking & tough type of family that always support each other even amidst fighting. You can imaging being 4 kids in different age groups can cause a lot of fights growing up 😂 #siblingsfight #family #VoicesIWS
@IWS_Network
I have my issues🤷‍♀️! I always wanted to prove myself & make my family proud(2nd child). A pressure that was just in my head; they were always proud of us. I wanted to grow up to be a doctor or an army officer like my dad. Let's just say I changed my mind! #VoicesIWS @IWS_Network

#Reasons2StayInEU
Freedom of Movement: we can control who stays after 3 months. We've always been able to but successive governments have chosen not to. FoM means we can quickly fill skills shortages in the NHS, teaching, research, hospitality industry, construction, agriculture.
Freedom of Movement also means we can fall in love with whom we like and not worry about being able to get visas, and know that our children are safe in their family home, be it in the UK or another member state of the EU. #LoveEU #Reasons2StayInEU
Freedom of Movement helps us with aged parents or relatives who live in another EU member state but who we need to care for, knowing it doesn't matter about health bills as the EU deal is reciprocal. #EU looks after our health and wellbeing. #Reasons2StayInEU.

In late-August of 2010, my dear first-cousin was diagnosed with inoperable, non-curable, small-cell lung #cancer. He and I were raised like #siblings and cared for one another as brother and sister, a very close-knit family.
My #cousin was an amazing man, husband, and father to twin boys; who were only 14 when he died in September 2017. He died at his home, surrounded by his family and friends…just how he’d wished.
Of course, he only had these wishes after his experiences spending extended periods of time in clinics, hospitals, and laboratories. Blood draws, lung scans, injections, medications, #chemotherapy, hospitalizations, emergency room visits from all the awful side-effects of his...

On my recent trip back home, i decided to visit the areas that had gone through the anti-encroachment drive and interview the people in those areas. The stories we heard about families being forced onto the streets are, unfortunately, true.

#Pakistan #Karachi #AntiEncroachment
Meet Interviewee 1: Ahmed, aged 13. It is nothing new to see Child Labour in Pakistan but Ahmed was recently forced to start working at his uncle’s Ajrak shop because his father’s small shop had been torn down by the government. Before that? He went to school.

#ChildLabour
Pictured here is Interviewee 2: Ahmed’s Uncle Sajjad, packing dozens of unsold Ajraks awaiting the imminent threat of the #government’s anti-encroachment drive. He had taken over this shop in Abdullah Market, Saddar from his late father 7 years ago and paid the rent ever since.

It's the night before thanksgiving. It's cold and wet outside. #CampFire evacuees are still bracing the elements and looking for shelter. Here are some images I'd like to share some images from my time exploring the Chico Walmart parking lot, a temporary refuge for some.
Folks like Sarah, Martin and James, from Magalia, have made the most out of their circumstance. A parking spot was their living room. They set up a propane heater (which was stolen in the middle of the night later) and a television to watch the latest news on the #CampFire.
Brenda Wilson tried very hard to keep her dog Scooby warm. The dog was shivering. She slept in the car. She was cold herself. She was distraught and wanted to go home. When I spoke to her, she had no idea if her home survived the #CampFire.

Hello, I am Edna Matta. I was born in #Ibague, known as #Colombia’s #CityofMusic. A beautiful place near snow-covered volcanos (Ruiz, Santa Isabel and Tolima), large expanses of paramo forest, lakes and streams where a diverse array of animal and plant species coexist
My story starts with #powerful, #strong #women in my #family. I was the third of 4 children and my mom #firstMentor had to raise us practically alone, since my father had to work in a different city, 20h away by car
My mom is a very #strong #woman that taught me #values, to #workhard and to be #self-sufficient #StrongWomen #StrongFamily

I was born and raised in the beautiful city of #Curitiba, southern #Brazil!
This region is famous for being cold and cloudy (yes it can be cold in Brazil!).
It is also famous for its very endemic and beautiful #Araucaria pine trees. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network @500womensci /1
#Actions speak louder than words! I am thankful for my parents for being who they are. Both always showed love for Nature, different interests and #curiosity! So no wonder by observing them I grew up to be a very curious girl who really loved Nature. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network /2
During High School I became fascinated by the #mendelian #genetics classes and the work of #gregormendel! I also loved studying animals, ecosystems and climate so the obvious choice for me in University (@PUCPR_oficial ) was BIOLOGY!! @IWS_Network #womeninscience #voicesIWS /3

(2) POTUS Trump would have the same views whether or not 3 of his grandkids were Jewish but, in honor of those lost at the Tree Of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, I Kushnerized tweet (1). They're the most well known Jewish American kids & for me it's about #love #family & #peace.
(3) Most of us don't know those harmed in Pittsburgh but we know the faces of Arabella, Joseph, & Theodore.

My thoughts are with everyone targeted by prejudice, especially because of their faith or ethnicity. A crime against any human is a crime against all humans.

What do you do when you disagree with someone ? ... How do you handle a different perspective? ... I check we are talking about the same thing... consider the logic and evidence and finally stress test their conclusions...
I did that and I disagreed with @CarolineLucas my leader
First off @CarolineLucas is #spectacularly bright, #hardworking and a #visionary who pulled me into @TheGreenParty orbit. There are very few... perhaps no other UK politicians with a more determined record of standing up for our collective #environmental #rights #newgreenpolitics

#1: I have the right to ask for what I want.
You are allowed to ask. You don't have to mind-read beforehand to make sure the answer will be yes. You don't have to swallow everything you want or like or need. Sure, it's possible the answer will be "no," but you can prepare for that possibility. It's not wrong to ask.

7 years ago, I wrote "Flushing the Potty Panic" for @transadvocate. I opined the solution to unlawful #discrimination in access to public accommodations in which nudity is unavoidable—toilets, showers, locker/dressing/changing rooms—because "separate but equal" is illegal…
is to ensure via #law that a sufficient number of secure, single user, #disability-accessible, #family-friendly facilities are provided for all people who for any reason desire or require #privacy or assistance, in the manner of the #ADA Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990…
at the same time we ensure by law that all people have the right to be free from unlawful discrimination on the basis of sex, gender, sexual or affectional orientation, or gender identity, appearance, expression, or behavior, regardless of sex or gender assigned at birth…

(1) Another thing Communists did to us:

- They wanted us to do things only for ourselves, and actually look upon others with animosity.
- They wanted us to destroy the family, replacing it with slavery to the government.
(2) Look at the above two points, and figure out what that does to inheritance.

- They convinced baby boomers that their children should have to suffer, not have any financial means to live or own a home or have children or have a family.
(3) They actually convinced baby boomers that it is BAD to give their children inheritance. BOTH @AandGShow's Joe AND Jack complained as soon as they read it's becoming more common for children to consider it theft when their parents spend too much on unnecessary costly items.

This is why I want to #MAGA. #Family.

1. My mom and dad, married 61 years. Both raised in the coalfields of #WV. My dad is LTC-USA (RET), served in #Vietnam, and is 100% VA disabled. My mom raised 3 daughters pretty much by herself!

Where is the #America they loved?
2. My son, pictured here with his father. He served in the #USArmy, and due to his service, is 100% VA disabled. (He suffers from #PTSD and thus, #depression, and, sadly, #addiction.)

Will the #VA be there for him when he's old?
3. My daughter, here with me at her bridal shower. She's an elementary school #teacher, and works 12-hour days, making sure her students get the very best education possible.

Will she be forced to tell her students they can't say Merry Christmas?
