I made this Facebook post a few years back and it still holds true. 1/x

I saw a disturbing comment from someone I don't believe I ever interacted with in my life. Their comment moved me so much I believe I am going to write a series of articles about it.

Let me start with the following:

1. For 40 plus years, the neoliberal era has reigned.
During that time, people have had little by way of resistance from the lies, deceit and self imposed prisons of ineffectual domestic governance and austerity.
2. The lies were baked into the school system, newspapers, sit comms, political debates even cartoons took the ideas of neoliberalism into the hearts and minds of our children...the people.

Why are true entrepreneurs so applauded in our country? Because the system is rigged against escaping the plan. This is the reason why we don’t have #MedicareForAll & other policies that support breaking free. If you leave the system you lose any healthcare & benefits you have👇🏻
You can always identify fake progressives by how they treat true entrepreneurs in their circles. True progressive know that unless we break the cycle of the rich employing us while we pay taxes that also then benefit the wealthy through subsidies we will never reach prosperity👇🏻
To be clear Entrepreneurs are those who take a true risk in proving their business concept. Those who came from money or have money gifted to them to start up without any real raise to their way of living don’t really qualify in book. True entrepreneurs struggle, they fail 👇🏻

Y'all, today is a big day!


~9 YEARS~ of collecting, cataloguing, sharing, rambling, watching and *everything* else related to this crazy thing I decided to start one night.

First: This all started in 2012 because of @nielslesniewski and @elisefoley wondering - as Senator Durbin chatted about energy drinks with a giant 5 Hour Energy Drink (seen below) - why there wasn't an archive of these things.

And then:…
I worked for the wonderful world of C-SPAN at the time, so always had it on at home, and was staring at Twitter...and well, decided this could be a thing. So I popped up a @tumblr.

The most popular chart in 2012?

The vintage @ChuckGrassley Debt and Deficit Dragon, of course.

#Budget2021 starts with a scolding from the Deputy Speaker for pre-briefing the media on details of the budget before it has been presented to the house.
"Let there be no doubt our plan is working" says the Chancellor. We reckon young people, low-income families and not to mention the planet itself would beg to differ. #Budget2021
The Chancellor says we need to strengthen our economy so we're ready for the next crisis.

Presumably we'll be seeing investment in a #GreenNewDeal to tackle the impending climate crisis then Rishi? #Budget2021

This was what I worried would happen with @Booker4KY. Not be on the offensive with @RandPaul, who's an abysmal, but only on the defensive when need to. Just like the @KyDems always do, which is a losing strategy. But Booker's running on policies that are materially popular!!!
Here's a fun fact about running in an election... If you run as an Aggressive & Offensive Candidate with Policies that help the People & their Material Well-being, then you win.
Here's how I know; In the 2015 Midterms, @AlanGrayson of the @FlaDems, he won with no problem. He was unapologetic when being a "#Progressive", stands up with his Principles & goes for the Jugular in Political Ads at his Opponents on how their Policies are Wrong, Evil & Bad &...

Biden is lying about the ports.
Green standard in CA in which all tractor trailers must b up to date.

"As a consequence, trucks cannot be older than 3 years if they are to pick up or deliver containers at those ports"

Working ports 24/7 will do nothing!… ImageImageImage
160 days from the deleted "port stop" marker (114 hours)
Or 22 weeks 6 days, was the 11.3marker (10/13/21).
That occured 206 weeks and 1 day after drop 26

Looking forward to hearing more about what #Bristol should be asking for from the #COP26 Summit #futurecity21
Chair Andrew Kelly opens by saying that there is general consensus around #COP26 that "now is the time" to act on the #ClimateEmergency. #FutureCity21
Kelly asks the MPs on best practise on climate emergency in their constituencies. @karinsmyth highlights the work in her area on #Food & #Allotments - helping secure a just transition & providing affordable locally grown food #FutureCity21

I grew up swimming in the beautiful beaches of Huntington Beach,Newport & Laguna. Now these beaches have been destroyed because of corporate greed & corrupt politicians like @RepSteel &other Republicans.

Yesterday: I pointed out the Big Oil connections of some supporting @JustinTrudeau's climate plan.

Today: @SethDKlein - my bro-in-law & renowned progressive climate policy expert - wrote a detailed and devastating critique of the modelling behind that fatally flawed plan.🧵
Tonight at the leaders debate, @JustinTrudeau will pretend that a couple recent op-eds from economists means that their party has the blessing and support of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (@IPCC_CH).

But that’s simply not true.
The NDP has a better climate plan than the Liberals - one that would kickstart what the @IPCC_CH actually calls for: "rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society." #climateemergency

Today we remember the original Rednecks: 10,000 coal miners who fought a literal army in order to earn better working conditions during the Battle of Blair Mountain 100 years ago.
Here's a little bit of info about the largest armed labor uprising in U.S. history:
These West Virginian miners were diverse members of the working class: white and Black, immigrants and deep-rooted locals. They lived in an oppressive company town where the mining company controlled every aspect of their life, even charging them for their own work tools.
When United Mine Workers began organizing in the area, companies hired private detectives to spread propaganda and intimidate union sympathizers.
Things came to a head when the local sheriff, a supporter of the union miners, was murdered by these agents in broad daylight.

For Labor Day, we're thinking about the necessity of the #JustTransition
A Just Transition means doing everything we can to take human civilization 100% fossil-free by 2030, but doing so in a way that does not devastate everyday people whose livelihoods currently depend on a fossil fuel economy they did not choose.
A Just Transition is necessary: we can't restructure vast swaths of how we live while throwing countless people, families and communities into poverty, jeopardy and despair. First, that's unacceptably cruel.

WATCH: GND Rising activist Fatima calls out @RishiSunak for blocking climate action.

❌ The govt’s plan only includes £4bn of new money
❌ There is no comprehensive plan for how to tackle climate change
❌ They are still approving new climate-wrecking oil and coal projects
Why are you repeating a lie @RishiSunak?

Here’s Alok Sharma admitting in November last year that only £4bn of the funding in the 10 point plan is new money.…
With the government spending 27bn on road building, even 12bn - on our ENTIRE future - is peanuts.

And the Tories call themselves climate leaders? 👀
We’re not buying it, and we’re sick of being lied to.

The #GreenNewDeal will prevent extreme weather. Once we stop burning coal for electricity but burn even more of it to make solar panels, and then burn fossil fuels to move those solar panels to fields where we've chopped down all the trees, we will solve the problem. #Science
Once we stop using fossil fuels for electricity but use them in chinese slave mines to get the materials to make wind turbines which have an 8 year lifespan we will solve the problem. All it takes is a belief in science.
We must keep fossil fuels in the ground. Also none of the "green" energy products can be made without them. But that's good fossil fuels. And they don't have emissions. Or they do, but they are good emission because they make solar panels which are good. #SCIENCE

The #NDP platform #ReadyForBetter dropped this week, and there are some powerful climate policies that I'm excited to run on.

The party has been listening to big ideas coming out of the climate movement and it shows.

A 🧵...
The Civilian Climate Corp could fix youth unemployment with jobs jobs jobs:

🌊 restoring wetlands, coasts & other habitats
🌲 planting millions of trees
🏞️ healing the land and storing carbon

Indigenous leadership & knowledge is key to the success of any land-based program.
Legislating multi-year carbon budgets - both sectoral & national - is absolutely necessary to bend the curve on emissions.

The Trudeau Liberals - when they're not doling out💰💰💰 to Big Oil - relies on market incentives. Totally not working. Time for hard caps.
