Federal judge deals another blow to group challenging Ohio's voter roll purge #VoterSuppression #VoteBlue #ThursdayThoughts s.cleveland.com/4aPqfyH
2/"Under the Ohio policy the Supreme Court upheld, failure to cast a ballot for two years triggers a process where notices are repeatedly sent to voters whose registration is flagged.
3/"Registration is canceled if there's no response to the notices, no votes are cast during the next four years and the voter's address isn't updated."

"...women seem dejected d/t all the mob talk. The purpose of the mob talk is to dampen enthusiasm" on the left. -- .@fred_guttenberg, a Parkland parent and tireless gun control activist.

CALLING ALL WOMEN: let's post photos of us protesting.

Let's see these "mobs". #WeAreTheMob
(PS: the above photo is not mine. I don't go out and physically protest d/t disability, but if I did, these are the signs I would hold.) #WeAreTheMob
TBC: the context of the "dejected" statement by @fred_guttenberg was that after Kavanaugh, the Republicans are banging the "Democrats are an angry mob" drum, the purpose of which seems to be to keep women from speaking out. Fuck that! Here's a shot of the #MarchForTruth, Seattle.

#ThursdayThoughts The constant focus & criticism on #RodRosenstein is DUMB. Rod wasnt involved in:
•Clinton MYE coverups/crimes
•Election
•Dossier, bullshit Russia narrative
•Weiner laptop lies
•Spying on campaign
•Legitimizing Clinton while targeting Trump
•Media leaks
@FoxNews media pundits have found their scapegoat while completely ignoring REAL corrupt, criminal govt officials responsible EVERYTHING. The obsession w/ Carter Page FISA, who wasnt even on campaign, while ignoring all events that took place in 2016 (Rod wasnt involved)... DUMB.
What people are mad about is they arent getting their💥BOOMS💥validated fast enough (which I agree is fucking maddening). Instead of focusing on events/people ACTUALLY INVOLVED in 2015/2016, who've resigned, retired or fired, & connecting all the dots to expose the bigger picture

Mike Kalny, a Republican who held the elected position of precinct committeeman, sent this to Johnson County Democratic Women’s north chapter president, Anne Pritchett.

Kansas Republican vows to send 'lesbian Indian' Democrat back 'to the reservation'

usatoday.com/story/news/pol…
When he said, "kickboxing lesbian Indian back to the reservation", he was talking about @sharicedavids, who is poised to be the first Native American woman our country has ever sent to Congress.

And of course, Kalny looks like this. Here's his FB BTW.

facebook.com/mike.kalny
.@sharicedavids couldn't care less what some backwater shithead says about her.

She could use your support to show the GOP that a "lesbian Indian" can win in Kansas

USA Today published an OpEd by Trump yesterday. WaPo fact checker says almost every sentence is a lie.

Here are the facts:
👉The Trump admin is arguing in court to end protections for Americans with pre existing conditions. If they win, millions will lose health insurance.
/1
👉GOP supports privatizing Medicare and starving of funds over time. Trump’s corp tax cut includes provisions that deplete Medicare’s revenue system.
👉Dems propose expanding medicare benefits for Seniors. Some propose a Medicare-For-All plan for seniors and non seniors alike.
/2
The GOP can’t run on their #GOPTaxScam because it’s wildly unpopular.

They can’t run on healthcare because their plans would steal healthcare from millions of Americans.

All they can do is lie.

The truth is, you can’t afford for the GOP to win.
Take your stand. #BeAVoter

How to SUCCEED as a new #Entrepreneur. (A thread)

1. Have a plan

You may not need a 50 page business plan but you need to have a PLAN that outlines your business model, your value proposition & method of reward for yourself and those the support your business.
#EntrepreneurLIFE
2. Don't spending unnecessarily

If you are going to make it rain, make sure you have seed planted in the field.

You'll want to make more than you spend. Plan your spending just as much as you plan your income.
3. Stop trying to do everything yourself.

There is so much you can do on your own - learn to delegate.

Do what you are great at and delegate the rest to others who are better than you at what you are not great at.

Delegate and you'll get further than you can on your own.

WHAT'S LURKING IN CREEPY PORN LAWYER'S CLOSET?

Special ThanQ to @TheSpeaker2018 for memes, @punkassaudrey @NG54003898 @LouisMcFadden8 for group dig.

#KavanaughHearings #Kavanaugh #Avenatti #CreepyPornLawyer #Qanon #MAGA #trump #ThursdayThoughts
1. Michael Avenatti aka Creepy Porn Lawyer, simply won't go back in the closet.

The latest in his long history of antics is, of course the display of another sexual assault accuser, Julie Swetnick. This time aimed at derailing Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.
2. Why does Avenatti so loudly protest Trump & his agenda?

In a tweet on Sept 26, Trump explained, "He is just looking for attention and doesn't want people to look at his past record and relationships-a total low-life!"

Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
Let them praise his name in dance: let them sing praises to him with the timbrel & harp. Ps 149
For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.

To execute vengeance upon the heathen & punishments upon the people;

It's being reported that Prof. Ford's attorney has sent a letter to @senjudiciary saying that Ford will come forward to testify. The details have yet to be revealed. She is one courageous woman, and we will remain forever grateful. No matter what the outcome. #ThursdayThoughts
2/ Part of the text of the letter states that a "meeting on Monday will not be possible, however, and a full FBI investigation is preferable" BUT it clearly states that she is willing to testify.
3/ And it appears now that she will be prepared to testify next week. There's now speculation that Kavanaugh may not want to face having to testify due to some evidence..dunno what. He's at the WH again today & I continue to hear that McConnell is on the fence @ pulling the nom.
