More hospital for me, today.
The rest of you, remember to breathe and keep the toxic at bay.
And take in some beauty.

The tulips and daffodils are in bloom!
Thanks so much to all the lovely, kind people wishing me well. Your support is so vital.

It was a harrowing day. #Cancer is a slog, but I am managing (except for some trolls who have sad lives).

I remain grateful for all of you, for great docs, for my fab fam.

Thank you. 💜🌿
Filing columns from hospital beds is exhausting.
Once, when I was at @PhillyDailyNews, before email was a thing, I wrote my copy long-hand from the ICU. That story, about the ICU, was later nom'd for Pulitzer, but all I remember was thinking those might be my last written words.

Let's talk about the #NRA, fear tactics, and the manipulation of the American people.
Some folks in #WeResist were discussing fear tactics, "well-regulated militias", and the NRA in general. We're gonna dive into these topics in this thread.
#Resist
1/
First up, the #NRA, everytime a mass shooting happens, the NRA come out strong in defense of guns. We expect them to, after all, it's what they do. They call the gunman "crazy", they say that "crazy" people shouldn't have access to guns, etc.
2/
You don't necessarily have to be "crazy" to do a mass shooting. True enough that most of the people that have committed mass shootings are "crazy" but it's not something that is synonymous with being crazy. You just have to be evil enough to do it.

Cathy Myers, Randy Bryce's primary challenger, is being told to "go away" and drop out.

This is exactly why I got so mad when the media normalized sexism when it was directed at Hillary.

Though more women are running than ever before, they're facing the same barriers HRC did.
I didn't even know that Randy Bryce had a primary challenger until today and I'm always on Twitter and going through the trending news stories.

Where is the national coverage for Cathy Myers? Why isn't her video being shared and praised?
I agree with what Diane said here. While I understand that #WI1 has national implications because whoever wins will challenge the Speaker of the House, this primary has become completely one-sided because of national discourse, which is steeped in sexism.

We have 36 Governors up for re-election, 26 controlled by the GOP.

With this left swing, lets meet the Democratic Challengers in all 26 states.

#PowerToThePolls
Arizona is a true toss up state. Current Governor Doug Ducey is running, he squeaked by with just 53% last time.

Steve Farley @SteveFarleyAZ
David Garcia @dg4az (note @DemsWork4USA pick)
Kelly Fryer
Arkansas incumbent Asa Hutchinson is seeking re-election.
He won with 56% last time, well within the #BlueWave target.

Say hello to Jared Henderson @JaredforGov

Be sure to follow Jared and maybe throw him a few bucks.

I've been part of the Twitter resistance for a year now. I'm going to share some thoughts about why & how I resist.

Some people may not like some things I say here. I’m sorry for that, but they need to be said. 1 #WhyIResist #HowIResist #RebelScum #TheResistance
Some things in the first year were fun: meeting like-minded people, the #scifi characters, learning how to take effective action. Celebrating #victories like beating the #ACA repeal bills.

A lot of it wasn't fun - the threats of nuclear war, the daily stress of bad news. 2
Follow parties were fun, and a good way to promote a message and raise awareness, connect with other resistors and grow our followings. They had themes and served a purpose and there was about about one a month.  3 #PartyWithAPurpose #trending #amplify #effective

I'm not thinking about #oneyearundertrump today.

I'm thinking about #oneyearofTheResistance and what we've done. Thread.
@CapRogers2017 @2HawkEye2018 @WarMachine2018 @Thor_ofMight @AgentHillResist @ScarletAvengers @ItHasBegun2016 @AgentCarter_SSR We've learned how to call out Members of Congress daily and effectively.

It makes a difference.

We've killed the ACA repeal THREE TIMES and calls to Congress were cited as the biggest reason for the success.

Calls to Congress are vital!
#TheResistanceWorks
@CapRogers2017 @2HawkEye2018 @WarMachine2018 @Thor_ofMight @AgentHillResist @ScarletAvengers @ItHasBegun2016 @AgentCarter_SSR We show up!

#TheResistance has shown we will be there to fight the discrimination of racially motivated bans, executive orders, and demonstrations for hate.
