In my daughter's AP Gov class, she is tasked with representing Buttigieg's campaign.

I think she likes him.

I sent her this clip, wondering what her reaction would be.

"that's cray cray!"
"that's just not true"
"he just boxed himself in."
"why'd he do that?"

#proud
For all my complaints about education in general, I will say that her AP Gov class has been a highlight. They dig deep into the mechanics of government, they argue both sides of current events, and she has learned a ton.

It's been pretty even handed so far.
We've had some heated talks.

On immigration, it was hard for her to accept that unless we have open borders, we will need some system to admit people.

She recoiled at a skills based system because "only white people could come then."

There's a lot baked into that statement.

Πόσο μεγάλη η συγκίνηση όταν καταφέρνεις να κάνεις ακόμα ένα από τα όνειρα σου πραγματικότητα και να το δεις να υλοποιείται.☑

Από σήμερα και για όλη την εορταστική περίοδο, το μετρό του Λονδίνου (!!!!!) θα φιλοξενήσει την καμπάνια που έχω επιμεληθεί και συντονίσει.... (1/5)
....και την οποία ξεκίνησα να "σχεδιάζω" από τον περασμένο Ιούλιο.

Ο στόχος μου είναι να ευαισθητοποίησω και να ενημερώσω τους κατοίκους του Λονδίνου σχετικά με το σοβαρό πρόβλημα της έλλειψης στέγης στην πόλη, με τους άστεγους να ξεπερνούν τους 9,000 και να... (2/5)
...αυξάνονται κάθε μήνα. Μέσα από την αφήγηση και την περιγραφή χαρακτηριστικών καθημερινών απλών ανθρώπων θέλω να κάνω τον κόσμο που θα δει τις αφίσες να σκεφτεί ότι οι άστεγοι είναι σαν εμένα κι εσένα, σαν όλους μας. Έχουν όνειρα, φιλοδοξίες, ικανότητες..... (3/5)

Phones are disallowed in jail so all of these pictures were truly moments...minutes we came together at sunrise or long after sunset. Some takeaways. moments...minutes we came together at sunrise or long after sunset. Some takeaways. 2/
1. I am so proud of the CIRC team who learned what it means to be a lawyer in all its messiness. 2. I am grateful to ALDEA - The People's Justice Center for their work everyday in family detention. 3. Watching kids cry, smile, and wail is very normal at home but not in jail. 3/

Public service announcement. Tweeting an article & writing it *are not the same*. Have we cleared that one up? Jolly good. So here's the brilliant Bloomberg investigation on £££ made in Brexit from last year. Including 'questions still to answer' Farage...

Is there a Twitter brainstrust on how to navigate this hellscape? I'd be grateful for its wise counsel. This article is contested. I have zero financial expertise so can't judge original or takedowns. Hence I'm deleting, screenshotting & posting here & y'all can carry on fighting
To the people who have subtweeted me sanctimoniously, your comments have been noted, thank you. To the people posting cat gifs, @afneil appreciates the support. To those who find the new age of information, troublesome & exposing & forever throwing up new problems, I hear you

Introducing my #the100dayproject inspired by @QMUNITY and my fellow #ADE @Sharon_Drummond. 100 days, 100 GIFs, 100 queer terms to educate and connect our community and allies. All GIFs created with #AppleKeynote and will be compiled on @GIPHY : giphy.com/channel/joepau… @AppleEDU
Day 1: QUEER - widely used among the community to refer to the spectrum of non-heterosexual +/ non-cisgender ppl as a shorthand. Important - this is RECLAIMED language that was/is still used as a hate term. #pride #education @QMUNITY @sogiUBC Follow along ———> #100daysofQueer
DAY 2: HETERONORMATIVE - social roles & structures that reinforce idea that heterosexuality is the presumed norm and is superior to other sexual orientations. #pride #education #sogi #humanrights @QMUNITY @sogiUBC @HRC

En este hilo les dejo el por qué J balvin está a años luz de alcanzar el nivel de lo más exitoso que ha dado Latinoamérica “SHAKIRA” la más. He visto a fans de balvin comparándolo hasta con MJ.
Para aclarar me gusta la música de j balvin, me siento orgullosa por todo lo que ha logrado, pero no podemos olvidar y hacernos los locos que hubieron artistas que trabajaron muy duro en una época donde todo era más difícil para que artistas como el hoy pudieran surgir @shakira
1. Shakira empezó en una época donde en colombia El tropical, y el vallenato dominaban la industria, grabó sus dos primeros álbumes escritos por ella misma “Magia” & “Peligro” a los 13 años con SonyMusic. Shak ganó un premio en Viña con dicho álbum pero fueron un FRACASO TOTAL.

The set is very red and gold and swirly. #Oscars2019
It wouldn't hurt my feelings to see Sam Elliott's mustache accept the award. #Oscars2019
YES! It's great to see people of color win so many awards tonight. Yay, Mahershala Ali! #Oscars2019

"Maybe nobody loved you when you were young
Maybe, boy, when you cry, nobody ever comes"
"proud boys" is more like "self-hating peter pans"
seriously how many of these people still get money from their parents?
If they ARE on the parental dole, then do Mommy & Daddy know what they've been getting up to?
What do Mom & Dad think?
Are Mommy & Daddy #proud of their little self-hating homophobic/homoerotic incel peter-pan sons?
Or will they cut off the money spigot, reprimand, and disown?

1/ THREAD: A brief #LGBTHistory for this #Pride. Really FEEL THIS. Prior to the 1970s, being LGBT was ILLEGAL & homosexuality was considered a mental illness. Police would conduct a raid, arrest you, cuff you, humiliate you, then publish your name, address & photo in the paper.
2/ After your name, address & mugshot appeared in your local paper, you’d then be fired from your job. There were no legal protections--which is still true in 28 of 50 states today, but back then it was a near certainty.
3/ And then at Compton’s, at Stonewall, our LGBT forebears fought back. They said “No more" to these police raids on their communities. Along with Vietnam objectors, civil rights activists and feminists, they protested. They were targets. It was dangerous.
