May be impossible to believe @TulsiGabbard and @jockowillink but some of us have been applying #GameStrategy dare I say #WarStrategy for just a time in history like this.

We can offer real solutions. New solutions that are provable at the #LongGreenTable. Who knew there wouldn't
be a seat available for #CommonPeople.

Where's the aloha in this act.

It's like offering a Gatlin gun to an army fighting with swords and being ignored.

We must do better if "we" are to win.

Question is, are you even serious about ending the genocide. Actions speak louder th
an words.

I'll sign a NDA, whatever it takes to just get 15 minutes to explain where we are failing ourselves.

Voters don't need to wait until 11/24 to demand a new government. And playing along in a corrupt system is an automatic and guaranteed failure.

We all know it. Do y'a

A few reflections on and highlights from Preventable by @devisridhar #Covid19 #pandemics #globalhealth Image
Preventable is a #mustread. A clear, fast-moving time travel through the past years of #Covid19.
Gone into print in August 2021, the book is a reminder of harrowing images (and for many very real personal experiences and losses). I sadly think many of these have already been forgotten, just a few months later. Image

Did you know AB Ed @AdrianaLaGrange cut funding to AB School Council Assoc (ASCA) @ABschoolcouncil by whopping 75%, greatly affecting all AB parents’ ability to have a voice & strength of collective? #abed #abpoli #ableg #education #parents #school #council #community 1/
Did you know AB ED @AdrianaLaGrange formed “Parent Advisory” consisting of 40 AB (handpicked?) parents? Why? ASCA @ABschoolcouncil has formed collective voice for ~90 yrs that represents ALL AB School Councils available to ALL AB parents #abed #abpoli #ableg #education 2/
ASCA is non-profit & drastically slashed budget to survive. Looking at budget breakdown during AGM today, over 50% provides learning opportunities/professional development so parent volunteers can do their legislated jobs on school council #abed #abpoli #parents #volunteers 3/

Yet more ‘historic’ child #safeguarding failures. But are these historic? Or are the same failings still happening today? Does everybody who has concerns always raise them? Or in another 20 yrs time will we be listening to excuses from people who..…
have concerns RIGHT NOW but are failing to raise them? Are we learning our lessons? Are we listening? Or do we continue to vilify those who raise concerns? Do we as adults accept our responsibility to safeguard all children? Do we really understand the mantra ‘You never...
know anyone well enough to say they couldn’t, wouldn’t or didn’t’? Or do we continue to ignore our instincts, excuse friends, family, colleagues, pillars of the community, to the detriment of children? Do we fulfil our duty to #SpeakOut? Or do we continue to allow ourselves...

I’m posting this because I have been so sad for so long. I didn’t realize that what he did to me was not ok. I realize now, reading these other brave women’s stories, that I can’t be afraid anymore and I have to #speakout
Back in May of 2018 I was riding with Matt Riddle and a few other wrestlers. During the van ride, when the 3 other wrestlers had fallen asleep, Matt asked me to “hop on his dick”. When I refused (although we had previously been together I was
incredibly uncomfortable in that setting ) When I said no, he grabbed me by my throat, choked me and said “what if I just made you?” I ended up giving him oral sex (praying someone wouldn’t wake up) to get out of having intercourse with him. It was incredibly humiliating.

Another Innocent Young Man Falls To SARS this time in Gombe, this just got to my ears from my brother #AhmedMagem as Stories of sorrows, tears and blood continues in Nigeria in this matter. #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG
The excesses of some unscrupulous SARS operatives landed in Billiri town of Gombe State where report has it that a girl accused a young man, Emmanuel Luka popularly known as "Gatuso" of stealing her phone and so went ahead to call in her boyfriend who is a SARS operative.
Before you know it they'd taken the young man away and tortured him to death.
The same phone was later found with someone else, unfortunately an innocent young man got killed. Her own neighbor for that matter.

“Why kill someone over a phone? The phone that is less than 50k.”

How much should @LibDems focus on foreign policy? asks @libdemvoice>
Much more than we currently do in my view. For these reasons:
1. Apart from the current dispute w/ Russia, Brexit has made politics more parochial & domestic-obsessed than ever. I believe the #LibDems should focus on bringing a wider, international perspective & that would also serve to distinguish us from middle England Tories & Labour.
2. Our economy, NHS, environment (& other things the @LibDems care abt) can't be fixed unilaterally/through domestic means alone. We need cross-border, multilateral approaches. Indeed this thinking is at the ♥️ of our campaign for the UK to stay in the EU & an #ExitFromBrexit.
