The more I read about the literal violence that is erupting around the use of masks, the more I am realizing that this is the symptom of a failure of leadership to unite us against a common enemy. Instead, people are re-framing this as a battle for their personal rights. #covid19
2/ If we had real leadership, the message by now would be unequivocally clear: this is a #PANDEMIC.

This is not us v. you

This is not the right v. the left

This is not the US v China or the WHO

This is literally human beings as a species v. a deadly virus

3/ A security guard, today in Los Angeles, gets assaulted (they literally broke his arm, all caught on tape) for telling customers to wear a mask.

I really do not want to be sensationalist, but this is what is happening in our country.

I suspect some may wonder why I simultaneously comment on a wide array of things and also state I don't generally comment on things I know that I don't understand well. These two can both be true. Many people's experiences seem to be narrow in scope and that's truly fine.
I've been reflecting on #MothersDay this weekend. My mother and father both had significant traumas which left them unable to allocate adequate resources to me. My mother kinda checked out. My father drank. The lack of attention nearly killed me at 2. Grandma's family took me in.
I had the fortune of being taught to be curious by a grandma from age 2 until I graduated HighSchool. My father mostly stayed away but was a brilliant dad in spurts. He made sure I had college level reading comprehension by kindergarten. I taught myself calculus and cryptography.

As revealed by @DelhiPolice the #BoisLockerRoom issue was about a girl creating a fake profile of a boy named Siddharth and asking for her own gang rape. Other boys refused it.

@SwatiJaiHind was quick earlier, now will she initiate action against this girl? #ArrestSwatiMaliwal
Story of #BoisLockerRoom is a perfect plot that exposes feminist hypocrisy and their anti male agenda. They aren't interested in equality but ONLY male hatred and misandry

No tweets from @SwatiJaiHind on this earlier she was quick to send this letter
Imagine if @DelhiPolice had found it was really a boy who wrote this, would they spare him?
Why no action had been taken against the girl who wrote about raping herself impersonating as a male?
@SwatiJaiHind needs to be held accountable #ArrestSwatiMaliwal

Spent part of my Mother’s Day call with my mom talking about her work on Wages for Housework in the 1970s, which you’ve probably never heard Silvia Federici mention. Also heard a new story today: the time she debated Phyllis Schlafly on CBS and polls showed my mom won.
Yes I’ve been writing a lot of salty tweets about Silvia Federici recently but frankly I’m really frustrated with the way feminist scholars have allowed her to produce this totally revisionist history of Wages for Housework as an idea and a movement
A few days ago the NYT had an opinion piece in it that just completely makes things up about WFH, including that it died when Federici left it. It also fails to credit Selma James with being a co-founder of the movement.

2nd annual #MothersDay twitter takeover by my mom. She's got a BIG announcement about our little farm:

"I am ending my egg business. Sadly, I've concluded my organic, free-range, heritage hens are no longer safe given the nearby GMO-chemical farms upstate NY.
2 years ago, I moved from a hilltop to a hollow a few miles down the road. I am now downstream of corn fields. And my chickens have become less and less healthy – undersized eggs, young hens loosing feathers, unexplained illnesses. Same feed – different water, soil and air.
In this county, GMO corn and corn-fed cows are the norm. GMO corn kernels come coated with a fungicide and a neonic. Then, the corn can absorb sprayed-on herbicides (glyphosate, dicamba, and 2,4-d). See @GMOFreeUS @organicconsumer @USRTK.

During #MothersDay family call this wknd, my mother expressed gratitude for @SpeakerPelosi, who fought hard to protect Chinese students in America who had participated in solidarity protests with the Tiananmen Square movement in 1989.…
My mother had actually met my father at one of the pro-democracy demonstrations in the US that summer. My father, who was in the US on a graduate student visa, would have had to return to China for 2 yrs before being eligible to apply for US residency under rules at the time.
@SpeakerPelosi successfully advocated to waive the foreign residency requirement and to establish residency for Chinese students who were in the US at the time. This protected my father, who having participated in US-based demonstrations could have been at risk of persecution.

In honor of #MothersDay, if you have a second - here’s a pic of my mom with Paul Newman (I’ll explain), a little story, and a lesson...
So the first movie I ever received credit on as a writer was “Cars.” When I got hired by Pixar to move up there and write on it, I was quite young (26ish), inexperienced, and in WAY over my head.
Working at Pixar was everything you’d hope it would be. The people were kind, creative, and generous and gave me confidence to pretend I knew what I was doing...

1️⃣Yep, #Obama was the Antichrist, but there’s no need to fear him.
He is no super human demon.

He was just a CIA puppet playing the role of #Antichrist & #Mahdi to bring in the Caliphate to cause WW3.

WakeUp you are in the Blessed Day! 🐍leave not us! ImageImageImageImage
2️⃣The Mahdi is the M_sl_m end times messiah who was to appear after great conflict & violence (🚨believe they can bring on their own prophecy).

They hinted to the Isl_m_c 🌍 that he was their Mahdi, by using their common language of history!
3️⃣With his trip to Egypt he instigated conflict by insisting the #MuslimBrotherhood be at his
Cairo speech.

He had the gall to have Egypt’s enemies given FRONT ROW SEATs!

The Islamic history of this day was no coincidence! It was the day of the 1st MuslimCivilWar!!!

Nazis came to her door, shot men in her yard, and took her father. The 8-year-old lost it all in #WWII and only a leap from a train saved her from a death camp. What kept her going? Indomitable will. A tribute to that survivor~My Mother… @NatGeo #MothersDay
Under Nazi & Soviet occupation, my Polish mom was one of millions of children who suffered unimaginable horrors-and forged grit to survive.

My father was murdered when I was 6 years old. It was a shocking & Devastating time for the family. Especially my mother.

But she had no time to mourn. She had two kids to feed. She worked overtime at Winn-Dixie while going to night school to get her teaching....
degree. To take our minds off my dads death my mom came home early one day & surprised my sister & I with tickets to the Texas Rangers game. At the time I was beginning to watch a lot of the @Rangers at my grandparents house. I even painted a Rangers logo on a canvas & brought..
it with me to the game in hopes of getting some autographs. We got there right at batting practice time. I held my canvas high in the air next to the Ranger dugout. Jeff Huson my grandmama’s favorite player approached me with a smile. “You paint that young man?” “Yes sir I did.”

The truth about being a physician and a mom is that’s incredibly difficult and I don’t know a single woman who hasn’t struggled to be both. Things I have learned, that I wish younger me knew. A #MothersDay #medtwitter thread...1/
You kid will sometimes express anger, hurt, sadness at you being away. This is hard to see because it triggers an instinct to fix it. You can’t unsad them by compromising YOU. Trust they are learning important lessons of self-sacrifice and self-sufficiency. 2/
You want a resilient kid, they have to feel hard things. They have to. You can’t protect them from all pain. Kids will be adults one day and I don’t know a single adult who says “I wish my mom had given up everything that was important and meaningful to her for my wants.” 3/

Cow is a mother not just because she gives us milk, but because she has the highest biomemory of all animals, and she has the capacity to nurture all beings. She loves & protects all beings who are her "family." It is her basic nature to care for all...
The west has got it wrong. In Vedic goshalas,we do not take milk from cows bcz we want to exploit her. But rather, only what is spare, after all calves are fed, are used by humans since time immemorial. Because the cow by her very nature gives MORE milk than reqd for the calves.
Several studies have already proven that the more cows are loved & nurtured, the more milk they give. This is also what we learn in Bhagavatam - Krishna played flute for all cows & they give surplus milk. In Vedas, cows are worshiped for their divine qualities....

It's that day of the yr when we all collectively celebrate the incredible work, love & devotion of mothers across the world. Motherhood is a privilege & likewise having a caring mother is a privilege. Sending love & respect to all mums that stand by their children... #MothersDay Image
There's a hadith in Islam that says "Your Heaven lies under the feet of your mother" & I can't think of a more beautiful statement of reverence for mothers. You are God-sent angels. Thanks for all that you do in raising a kind, polite & considerate new generation 🌺 #MothersDay
Having said that, I can't help but feel a bittersweet pain on my chest for the mothers that I have seen separated from their children. I think of @FreeNazanin this #MothersDay. I think of @UnitedForNarges. I think of #NasrinSotoudeh. I think of #MaryamAkbariMonfared & many others ImageImageImage

My mom told me she didn’t want a gift for #MothersDay, and I still can’t tell if actually taking her word for it was the right call.

I’m too autistic for this, you guys.
On the plus side, this is one of the ways having a formal autism diagnosis improved our relationship. If there was subtext, she’ll know I just didn’t pick up on it, and I’m not trying to be a jerk daughter.

🤔 Has anyone else noticed how hard holidays are on @realDonaldTrump⁉️Every holiday he wakes up and ‘rage tweets’. He’s pissed that mothers are the center of attention today... #mothersday2020 👇
👇@realDonaldTrump has a historical record on @twitter of the lies that he told that should have been reported. For #MothersDay - could everyone report his tweet today as targeted harassment ⁉️

Continuing my series on Mewar, today I take a look at the story of Panna Dai, the nursemaid, who sacrificed her own son for the sake of the kingdom. A tale of sacrifice and honor. #mothersday2020
Indian history has seen stories of some great mothers who shaped their children’s character- Jijabai, Ahalyabai Holkar to name some and in our Puranas we have had Sita, Yashoda,Kunti, Kausalya, Subhadra and Draupadi.
But what do you say of a mother, who sacrificed her own son for the sake of a kingdom, that was Panna Dai. There can be no greater agony for a mother than to see her own son killed in front of her eyes.

Happy #MothersDay!

We celebrate all mothers out there who brought new lives into this world.

Preventing deaths and complications from preterm birth starts with a healthy pregnancy.
WHO recommends antenatal care that includes a minimum of 8 contacts with health professionals throughout pregnancy to identify and manage risks
