1/2 Bill S-233 calls for the creation of a national "framework" to allow the federal government to begin studying a "guaranteed livable basic income" program in Canada.
2/2 Senators overwhelmed by emails, calls pushing conspiracy theories about #basicincome legislation | CBC News…
1/2 In other words, conservative #fearmongering has whipped-up "pawns" to catastrophize about a review that has yet to take place. Perhaps these people being used as pawns don't know the conservatives have opposed every social program ever brought before Parliament.

Dr Ducanda pour la plupart des gens, c'est la dame "Vue à la TV" dans un reportage d'@EnvoyeSpecial et qui nous expliquait à quel point les écrans, c'est méchant et même que ça peut handicaper les enfants. 🤦
@France2tv peut être fière de l'audimat mais pas des retombées IRL. ImageImageImageImage
Sur le terrain, ce sont surtout les parents d'enfants en situation de handicap qui trinquent, accusés tour à tour de les avoir sans doute trop laissés devant les écrans.
Pour la nuance, on repassera, les propos du Dr Ducanda font foi. ImageImageImageImage
D'ailleurs, on voudrait bien connaître la suite de l'histoire du petit Rayan. Vous savez, cet enfant que le Dr Ducanda nous avait présenté comme un miraculé des écrans dans le reportage qui a fait sa renommée? On a eu quelques news fin 2018 mais elles n'ont pas l'air fameuses. Image

OK - A medium thread on what I think might happen over next few weeks as schools return. It's something I've been thinking a lot about lately. I'm not talking quantitative forecasts (I'll leave that to experts), I mean how it's likely to pan out in schools up & down the country
Caveat: I have ZERO scientific credentials - but my brain kind of likes to triangulate information to elaborate potential future scenarios. It's probably a bit sad, but I do this both in my personal and professional life - it's kind of how my brain is wired
As a nobody, I'm not in the least worried about the fall-out if I'm barking up the wrong tree....Indeed I will be utterly delighted if that proves to be the case. You can accuse me of #fearmongering, if you so wish - to which I'll respond with this:…

Maybe #AnthonySabatini knows what happened w/Anna Paulina Luna & her friend Erin Olszewski & "Russian/Ukrainian hitmen".

Sabatini & Olszewski know each other.

They both appear here on Israeli TV (10/25/20) under 'Florida Rallies' discussing how Covid19 is a hoax.
.@JeffWeinerOS this is why you got that notification. Image

And Young Americans for Liberty who will hold their "revolution tour 2021" in Orlando w/Ron Paul, Rand Paul, Matt Gaetz, Ron DeSantis, Thomas Massie & more. Sorry, tix are sold out. ImageImageImage

These video scenes of #brutal #LawEnforcement are from around the world and Australia figures prominently.
It is #dehumanising and mentally debilitating to see this and to comprehend the #inhumanity
Is it right to assault citizens like this?
The #G7summit was a cosy affair. Social distancing for the cameras and free-for-all off-it. #Scomo was in the midst of this #Cornwall retreat to plan the next phase of #Lockstep.
Do any of them appear concerned about the “pannddemmic” ?
#Scomo returns from his #G7Summit2021 all buoyed in #Lockstep and then NSW goes into #Lockdown followed by restrictions in other states.
Do you see fingerprints on this?
Is #GladysCluster trying too hard to convince?
See where we are on cases curve??

The total number of hospitalizations in 2020 "with" (not necessarily FOR) #COVID19 is within the range of annual hospitalizations FOR #influenza estimated by the CDC. (Thread continues...)

h/t Marjorie, a member of my reader community
The CDC estimates between 140,000 and 810,000 hospitalizations occur annually for flu (it's a range because numbers vary widely year to year).…
This December 30 @nytimes article states that "more than 670,000 Americans have been hospitalized with the disease this year".

(Note the precise "with" not "for" there.)…

Pelosi EXCUSE 1: “Not enough support in the Dem Caucus.”
ANSWER 1: Pelosi’s not pushing it. She’s doing the opposite: Quashing it!

Pelosi EXCUSE 1: “Not enough support in the Dem Caucus.”
ANSWER 2: There probably is. “The House Probably Has A Pro-Impeachment Majority Right Now”…
Pelosi EXCUSE 2: “The Senate won’t remove him.”
ANSWER 1: So? Months of televised impeachment inquiry hearings will make Trump toxic for 22 GOP Senators up for reelection in 2020. Dems only need to flip 4 seats to take back the Senate.…
