Sending thoughts and prayers to the @NRA, now that the Maria Butina, the Russian spy who will connect them to all that Russian money they laundered and gave to Trump, has inconveniently changed her plea to guilty. 🙏
#ThoughtsAndPrayers also to @RickSantorum, appearing here with the notorious Russian spy, Maria Butina.
#ThoughtsAndPrayers also to @DonaldJTrumpJr, who met with Russian spy Maria Butina even BEFORE he met with other Russian spies at Trump Tower, because he *may* be just smart enough to get nervous when he hears she is now cooperating. 🙏

1/Last night we and other local leaders of @MomsDemandAction, @WAGV,@Momtivist, @fialosangeles spoke with @KatieHill4CA about her quote in @NYTimes. We wanted to give Katie the opportunity to explain before we made a public statement. #CA25
nytimes.com/2018/11/09/us/…
2/We do appreciate that @KatieHill4CA took the time to listen to our concerns about the consequences of this quote. We'll allow Katie to better explain how this quote came about. #CA25
3/We want be clear that this order of sentences, however they came to print are uninformed and dangerous. We and so many LA-based activists worked tirelessly these past 2 years to get the #NRA out of #CA25 and that includes NRA talking points.

It’s been said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over & over again & expecting different results.

🔹264 days since the #ParklandShooting
🔹12 days since the #SynagogueShooting
🔹0 days since #ThousandsOaks

🤬 your #ThoughtsAndPrayers

We want #GunControlNOW
@GOP/@NRA talking point: “Gun control doesn’t work”

Except it does in Canada, Australia, Israel, UK, EU, Norway, Iceland, Japan…

The statistics don’t lie.

The US has a sick gun culture—We are literally being held hostage to a GOP Congress & a gun lobby org.

#GunControlNOW

This is heart wrenching.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
NOW is the time to talk about it.

It’s been 162 days since the #ParklandSchoolShooting

In 2 days, the US will be able to download & print a 3D gun

While the @NRA is being investigated for funneling money from Russia in 2016, GOP politicians are offering #ThoughtsAndPrayers to kids returning to school in August.
In today’s WTF news: Guns Do Kill People.
Not one piece of gun legislation has been introduced by the GOP since Columbine.
A tax exempt lobbyist org is lining GOP politician’s pockets to look the other way while our nation’s children are being slaughtered.

Since you brought it up...

You know what connects Paul Manafort and (founder of the Federalist) Ben Domenech? Fact-Based Communications (FBC Media).

FBC media did PR disguised as journalism paid for by the Malaysian government. Ben Domenech was a subcontractor for that work.
👇👇Joshua Trevino worked for the government of Malaysia alonside Fact-Based Communications or FBC Media.

Trevino's subcontractor Ben Domenech made $36,000 from the arrangement.

They called what they were doing journalism. It was really a PR campaign.
buzzfeed.com/rosiegray/cove…
In 2011, the same year FBC Media worked their PR campaign in Malaysia, "two FBC principals led the work with Manafort: the firm's founder, longtime journalist Alan Friedman, and former CNN business news producer Eckart Sager."

Woke up to tragic news of another shooting in the US. The shooter left an AR-15 at the scene, 4 dead.

How many more will die before #GunReform is passed? These WMD are way too easy to obtain.

The time for #ThoughtsandPrayers is over.

We the people Demand #GunReformNow
2/It’s NOT fallacy: our peer counties that’ve enacted #GunLaws do NOT have shootings like the US.

Military grade weapons do not belong in the hands of civilians. A shooting occurs in this country on average every 60 hours.

This is an Epidemic.

I am an American Citizen and a registered voter!

I hereby pledge to never vote for a candidate who accepts money from the NRA.

I will only vote for a NRA rated F candidate.

Almost all of the Road Runner cartoons are available via the @BoomerangToons app.

I subscribed for $5 & decided I'm gonna watch & tweet about 'em all in chronological order, even the later, terrible ones, for which I have an irrational affection.

Here we go.

Boomerang lists them alphabetically not chronologically so Chuck Jones masterpieces sit side-by-side with 1960s atrocities (& later 'revival' attempts.)

I am going to start at the beginning. I will also be including Wile E. Coyote/Bugs Bunny & Ralph Wolf/Sam Sheepdog shorts, FYI
September 17, 1949: "Fast And Furry-ous"

Chuck Jones intended this short to be a parody of cat & mouse "chase" cartoons. Instead, he accidentally created the definitive chase cartoon series of all time.
