Less than a month after 18 y.o. Elijah “E.J.” Johnson scored two touchdowns in his first high school game of the season, his mom says he’s fighting to breathe due to COVID pneumonia complicated by blood clots. He's admitted to a pediatric ICU in Missouri kansascity.com/news/state/mis… Image
Elijah was not vaccinated, but his mother wants to warn others about the virus. "I choose to be transparent about my son's journey bc the youth are being exposed and transmitting the virus more and more... his school doesn’t have a mask mandate it’s optional" Image
16-year-old Levi Barnett, Oklahoma high school football player is hospitalized with COVID. “It gets depressing,” said mom, “You just sit there and you watch your sick child and all you can do is just pray for them to be better.” kansascity.com/news/nation-wo… Image

Thread 🧵 will contain #Redistricting Committee info, contacts, links & any schedules I find.

We must actively participate in Democracy if we want it to survive the pressures from those who teeter on the fringe of fascism.

Speak! Don't allow them to gerrymander your voice away!

The #MediocrityPrinciple is the philosophical notion that "if an item is drawn at random from one of several sets or categories, it's likelier to come from the most numerous category than from any one of the less numerous categories".
#MediocrityPrinciple and #ConvergentEvolution should inform our understanding that if a new variant arises in one place, like #SouthCarolina, it can absolutely arise independently, and maybe simultaneously, in another place like #Alberta.
Simply, you are not special. The universe does not revolve around you, this planet is not privileged in any unique way; your species is not particularly intelligent, your province is not the perfect product of directed, intentional fate.

Everyone is vulnerable.

⚠️ Why does this pop-up vaccination site look so empty? Because many people don’t know it exists. It’s not included in vaccines[.]gov, vacunas[.]gov, via the text message service, or Google Maps

This isn’t unique to Detroit— it’s happening all over the country /1
cc @DetHealth
Q: Is the site new?
A: Not really, it’s one of a several #COVID19 vaccination hubs set up by the Detroit Health Department in partnership w/ Detroit Public Schools Community District

That particular site offers doses every Wednesday /2
detroitk12.org/Page/15621

cc @Detroitk12
Q: Are there other options?
A: Not for kids living in that zip code. In fact, according to vaccines[.]gov there are only 35 pediatric vax sites in *all* of Detroit, #Michigan that have doses in stock

~50K kids eligible to get vaxed live in #Detroit

That’s ~1425 kids per site

Reporter warns far-right Republicans may be close to achieving a 'radical rewrite' of the Constitution rawstory.com/reporter-warns… Since 2014 the Convention of States Project and other groups including #ALEC have helped lawmakers in 15 states call for a new constitutional convention
The Convention of States Project is led by a prominent right-wing activist ― former Tea Party Patriots founder Mark Meckler, who is also the current acting CEO of Parler, and a member of the #CNP Council of National Policy's Gold Circle #ShadowNetwork Image
According to The Center for Media and Democracy, lawmakers proposed 42 Convention of States resolutions in at least 24 new states this year. Article V of the US Constitution states that a constitutional convention could be convened if 2/3 of the states - 34 states call for it. Image

Logik zum #Öffnungsplan der #Bundesregierung
Wo, wie und wie schnell infiziert man sich mit dem #Coronavirus? Solange die Regierung Entscheidungen - magels Datenlage - ohne Evidenz trifft, solange ist es Willkür, wann welche Bereiche geöffnet und andere geschlossen bleiben #Spahn
Die Mutante #B117 erreicht in diesen Tagen -in den ersten Bundesländern- ihre #Dominanz. #R steigt zeitgleich und die #Regierung erhöht per #Öffnungsplan die #Mobilität: B117, Öffnungsplan u. gesteigerte Mobilität sind drei Faktoren die logisch #R exponentiell beeinflussen können
Zeitgleich werden #Kitas u. #Schulen geöffnet, also die Versammlungsorte, vor deren Öffnung uns Experten und Ärzte aus #Israel u. Kanada warnen. Begründet wird die #Öffnung mit "Meinungen" von Wissenschaftlern, deren #Studien -manipulierte Daten- aus #Schweden zitieren #twlz #KMK

I know no one’s surprised, but we need to call it out anyway. Today the Republican Party sealed their legacy w/Trumpism. They’re now & forever the party of racism, white supremacy, neo-nazism, domestic terrorism, conspiracy theorists & fact deniers. They own this. #GOPCowards
Republicans of conscience, now is the time. There’s no “saving” your party at this point. Now is your fleeting opportunity to come over to the right side of history & join the Dems. @SenBillCassidy @SenatorBurr @SenatorCollins @lisamurkowski @MittRomney @BenSasse @SenToomey
For the other 43 - the #GOPCowards - us REAL patriots will see to it that you’re stripped of all power & your big $ donors drop you.

To the REAL patriots: FLOOD YOUR SENATORS’ PHONES. Tell them how sickened you are, as one of their constituents. Contact info to follow (thread)

PETITION FOR TEXAS SOVEREIGN ACTION

Dear @GregAbbott_TX As NBCs of the United States for the preservation of the Union we petition you to call up the Texas Constitutional Militia, resubmit your case to SCOTUS, occupy all assets of Chinese nationalists suspected of high treason!
With the Constitutional Militia Mustered, SCOTUS will hear you case! and the other Patriot States will take similar actions to preserve these United States of America as a government of the people, by the people and for the people with the right to 1 legal vote per 1 voter.
Never has #TEXAS had a cause so just and righteous, so patriotic, so universal. For as Christ teaches, when we see America beaten up on the side of the road, we cannot pass by like the hypocrite and pretend his wounds do not need caring for. (cf. Luke 10:25-37)
