It disgusted me when some Republicans compared Barack Obama to Hitler, and it disgusts me that Dems are comparing Trump to Hitler now, and our immigration policies to Nazism. STOP MINDLESSLY TRIVIALIZING THE NAZIS. Just stop!
By the time I was in fifth grade, I had already read all the (Orthodox) Holocaust Diaries I could get my hands on. The horrors that went on during the Holocaust bear no similarity to what is happening here now.
If you say they do, you are minimizing the suffering Holocaust survivors endured and insulting the intelligence of the rest of us.

Remember when you believed @JeremyCorbyn & @UKLabour might be playing a long game & come out in the end to #StopBrexit with the Ultimate People Power move by supporting the right to a #PeoplesVote?
Me too.

No plans, cunning or otherwise
Our elected representatives are permitting a path that denies our young people any chance at fair future.

ToryGov deliberately blocked 16-18 yr olds from deciding their future by taking part in the EU Membership Referendum
bbc.co.uk/news/amp/uk-po…?
The Tories managed to block UK young people from voting by claiming it would cost too much to inform & register everyone.
The estimated cost was £6M.
That was considered too expensive.
Brexit is likely costing us millions a wk in lost revenue.

What is conservatism? 🤔🇺🇸
_____________________________

Tackling the tough question; what is conservatism?
Let’s dive in and see what’s really behind the word so flippantly tossed around for so many decades.
Language has become rather cavalier as far as application to actual definition. Some falsely claim the label to broaden appeal during elections, others pervert the term to demonize them.
In this case, conservative is hard to define by outside observers, therefore perverted.
The focus on individualism is the reason behind this difficulty. Individuals are different, if many in a group are different from one and other, they’re hard to define as a group.
Hard to keep them ‘in line’ too, another common difficulty conservatives face internally.

🕊(1) We’ve heard a lot about nothing being done after #Parkland but the truth is quite a lot is being done. March 14, a month after the tragedy, Senate Judiciary held a hearing with @marcorubio @SenBillNelson as witnesses and here is what we learned #SeeSomethingSaySomething
(2) In his opening statements @ChuckGrassley noted that after Newtown he and @tedcruz had proposed legislation that would’ve helped prevent this but politics buried it, they’ve since reintroduced the bill along with two others one named after the school.

(3) Michael Carrol of Florida’s Department of Children and Families closed the Cruz case despite noting him mentally ill, he refused to testify as did @browardsheriff @ScottJIsrael #SeeSomethingSaySomething #Parkland

This is a serious moment for the web’s future. But I want us to remain hopeful. The problems we see today are bugs in the system. Bugs can cause damage, but bugs are created by people, and can be fixed by people. 1/9
I can imagine Mark Zuckerberg is devastated that his creation has been abused and misused. (Some days I have the same feeling #justsaying) 2/9
I would say to him: You can fix it. It won’t be easy but if companies work with governments, activists, academics and web users we can make sure platforms serve humanity. 3/9

THE ABSOLUTE FIXED NATURE OF OUR CONSTITUTION

For nearly a century the concept of this living breathing document, applied mostly to the Constitution of the United States, has managed to linger... An utter fallacy! 💥🇺🇸 a thread 🇺🇸
There has been a vast array of documents throughout human history, meeting a verity of instrumental needs in civilized society.
Your mortgage is a document. What if it lived and breathed? Perhaps your balance and rate could substantially grow? Right?

This would be amazing for Linkedin Threads @threadreaderapp. Please oh, please make that happen somehow! Wouldn't you agree? @JoSaundersAU @mr_linkedin @LinkedIncoachUK @AngusGrady @TLBurriss @PetraFisher I could have really used this for your latest post @kokasexton #justsaying
I sense you need some context @JoSaundersAU @mr_linkedin @LinkedIncoachUK @AngusGrady @TLBurriss @PetraFisher and @kokasexton but check out threadreaderapp.com if you haven't already. It makes Blog posts or easily readable threads out of Twitter threads.
Can you imagine if you could read Linkedin Threads in a blog post format? It would make things So much easier to follow and come back to. A missing feature @linkedin could use if you ask me.

Additionally, Trey can investigate to the end of time, uncover the most heinous of crimes. The Jeffery DOJ will not touch anything to do with queen Hillary. There are perjury complaints waiting a full year @ DOJ, no action was taken by Jeffrey.
Here is one of Hillary's perjuries. The FBI report and her released emails prove this statement is a lie under oath. Hillary's emails that have been released by the government have redaction codes for classified content.
Sam, these government documents prove Hillary has committed perjury many times before Congress. It also proves @Comey committed perjury when he said, "Hillary Clinton did not break the law in my judgment."
