The United States is an incredible statistical outlier among economically developed countries re guns per capita. 1/
#gunviolence #guncontrol #facts #congress #senate
This translates directly to another statistical achievement for our country compared to the rest of the developed world - a several fold higher chance of gun death. 2/

Your baby or young child now has a 1/100 chance of being killed by a firearm as he/she grows up, and that chance is increasing year-over-year. 3/

Abraham Lincoln 🇺🇸 was shot #OTD 1865 by John Wilkes Booth

Booth actually had no intention on shooting Lincoln that night. He stopped by Ford’s Theater to get his mail & heard Lincoln would be there that night w/US Grant 🇺🇸

That got the ball rolling for Booth & his crew
#POTUS
THE PLAN
- Booth kills Lincoln & his guest US Grant 🇺🇸
- Lewis Powell kills Sec. of State Wm. Seward at home
- David Herold helps Powell
- George Atzerodt would kill VP Andrew Johnson 🇺🇸 in his hotel room
- They would all in Maryland at Mary Surratt’s tavern
#POTUS 💔
BOOTH ON THE RUN
John Wilkes Booth & David Herold fled Union troops hot on their trail, fleeing into Virginia, & finally to Richard Garrett’s Farm

They evaded their captors for 12 days

In Garrett’s tobacco barn, Booth would be shot & killed after a standoff with troops

"To the dismay of many Democrats, Biden remains wedded to the futile goals of “bipartisanship” and “lowering the temperature.” Frustrated Democrats make the point that there can be no real bipartisanship with a party that plays to QAnon ..."

"By remaining so studiously above the fray and refusing to identify Republicans as the threat to our democracy, he has sapped his own base of energy and allowed Republicans free rein to light up their voters."

So I’m just going to pin up here something that has puzzled me since this morning when I realised from a tweet by @eucopresident that #Putin actually had his own personal Twitter account @KremlinRussia_E and has had for some time…
Of course there is the paradox that Putin’s just blocked his own people’s access to @Twitter .But no, what puzzled was something else….
No, what puzzled was this: Putin has >1M followers yet he himself follows only 22 entities. Not 0, not millions, just 22. Does this number mean something to him @gaslitnation ? A catch 22?? Anyway I was even more staggered when I looked at what these entities were….

I say this NOT from a political standpoint, but from a medical one. #SOTU

#POTUS said $35 cap is for Type I #diabetes. Helps ~1M. That's good!

The 1 in 10 ppl have diabetes is mostly those w/Type II: 37,000,000 ppl. THAT's where high costs are!

cdc.gov/diabetes/data/…
Again, NOT political, just can't help myself from trying to disentangle potentially confusing medical stats.

The common citation is how common Type II diabetes is (1 in 10), but the program is meant to address Type I diabetes costs (about 1 in 500 kids).

beyondtype1.org/type-1-diabete…
With the more common Type II diabetes (#T2DM), there are a lot of other healthcare costs, due to the many comorbidities in this patient population.

Lowering insulin costs for kids with Type I is a good start, but we also need to prevent / manage Type II!

Happy Birthday Abraham Lincoln 🇺🇸, born #OTD 1809

Enjoy this Lincoln thread! 🧵

“It is a great piece of folly to attempt to make anything out of my early life. It can all be condensed into a single sentence: “The short & simple annals of the poor.”

Kentucky was the birthplace of the first "western" President: Abraham Lincoln 🇺🇸!

I still believe that our country would not be in the current state of division had HRC won the presidency in ‘08. Conservative backlash against a Black #POTUS fueled the rise of #FormerGuy and pushed #TodaysGOP to out themselves as The #AmericanNaziParty. That said, he is still
the best #POTUS we’ve had during my lifetime! @BillClinton is definitely a strong runner-up, and I believe @HillaryClinton may well have been the best #POTUS since #FDR and his astonishing #NewDeal which, had he lived to fully implement, might very well have accelerated

2/ Check out this tweet from last week by @JeffreyToobin—quite prophetic:

3/ I think two of the leading contenders for Justice Breyer's #SCOTUS seat, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson (D.C. Cir.) and Justice Leondra Kruger (California Supreme Court), would be difficult to oppose.

The attorneys who wrote that absurd letter were probably paid about $1k-$2k/hour to research and type up those lies.

Whoever is curating the First Amendment pages on Wikipedia is not getting paid, yet somehow manages to be much more accurate:

I've reviewed the resources @CodePink recommends as part of its #ChinaIsNotOurEnemy campaign regarding #Xinjiang #Uyghurs. codepink.org/china_faq
These resources promote a cultural response to alleged threat of #terrorism from #EastTurkistan/#Xinjiang, and I'm not sure if @CodePink would also approve of governments like #UK #USA #Belgium #France similarly "reeducating" their Muslim minority populations.
Aside from the condescension in the Chinese government documents cited, there is all but a total embrace of pre-crime activities à la Philip K. Dick's "The Minority Report." independent.co.uk/arts-entertain…

I just got to looking at many of the photos my #SSMSpackers students took during @POTUS @JoeBiden's visit to Dakota County Technical College in Rosemount, Minnesota. I'll post a series of them from before and during the event.
One of the things we wanted to focus on as student-journalists was what was going on behind the scenes as well as the main event in Dakota County Community College. This Pro-Trump / Anti-Biden group was not the biggest fans of us asking questions or photographing.#SSPMSpackers

This #NYTimes piece on #Biden is #interesting. It'is almost honest.

The reporters express surprise that #SenileJoe is siding with the #Dem #Left. Maybe they really ARE surprised. If they are, it just shows they were conned as thoroughly as most of the country was in 2020.
It’s now clear that Biden had a three part agenda: 1) Get elected #POTUS. 2) Pass a lot of very expensive government programs. 3) Go down in history as an #FDR or #LBJ, a president who permanently transformed American society.
#Joe’s problem was that 2) endangered 1). He needed to pretend to be “moderate” to get elected. So he ran a campaign that came down to ‘#OrangeManBad, #SenileManGood, and let’s not talk about what I’ll do in office.’ And it worked. He got the #DemocraticParty united behind him.
