.@PeteButtigieg's quotes from the debate, a long thread. Divided into differently lengthened segments for your reading delight. #DemDebates #DemDebate2 #TeamPete
"I'm running for president because our country is running out of time. It is even bigger than the emergency of the Trump presidency. Ask yourself how somebody like Donald Trump ever gets within cheating distance of the Oval Office in the first place. 1/5
"It doesn't happen unless America is already in a crisis -- an economy that's not working for everyone, endless war, climate change. We have lived this in my industrial Midwestern hometown. My generation has lived this as long as we have been alive. 2/5

Just as a reminder, and to put them in one place, there have been quite a few busts related to corrupt union bosses and officials. Here's the former VP of the UAW who pleaded guilty to corruption:

Devin Nunes is suing Twitter because users have said mean things about him. #RickShow
Andrea Chalupa: The timing of Nunes' lawsuit is so bizarre and comes at an odd time; Putin just passed legislation making it illegal to spread "fake news."
@AndreaChalupa @Gaslitnation
Rick: We have free speech rights against our gov't.
Andrea Chalupa: Hitler was laughed at and not taken seriously. We all laugh at Trump. Putin was laughed at as well & still remains a clown.

#UnionThug

HISTORY LESSON FOLKS

🔴In 1943 The Institute of Public Affairs aka @TheIPA was established by notable businessmen in response to an outstanding win by Labor in the Federal Election in same year

🔴Their intent was to SMASH LABOR, the UNIONS and to fight SOCIALISM.
🔴In the following year @TheIPA established the Liberal Party of Australia.

😩You can see ‘NOTHING HAS CHANGED’.

🔴These TORIES LOATHE LABOR & the UNION MOVEMENT hence ⚠️@ScottMorrisonMP > #UnionThugs campaign.

NOTE #NeoLiberals, #Libertarians DO NOT ACT in the PUBLIC GOOD
#UnionThug

🔴Ever wondered why Joe Hockey & Tony Abbott allowed / facilitated the demise of the Australian CAR INDUSTRY > it was because they were targeting UNIONS, the car industry was perhaps the most UNIONISED of all industries.
🔴Tories LOATHE #UNIONS
except their @TheIPA

0/ Thread. Having spent some time with @Nicolas_Colin on his new book HEDGE about #tech, #entrepreneurship, social #policy and the future of the Safety Net, I'm sharing some things that stuck with me, and why HEDGE is one for the ☀️📚📝 #readinglist amazon.com/Hedge-Greater-…
1/ @Nicolas_Colin is thought-provoking not least because of his vantage point - graduated from the French ENA, worked at the top of the French civil service, set up his own company, and invests in startups all over 🇪🇺 with @_TheFamily
2/ Im not one for party politics, and HEDGE isn't about that. It's a book that speaks to the zeitgeist of the #techlash and ways for #startup #founders and #politicians to think about smart, sensible policies to build an inclusive Safety Net 2.0 📖

Look -- @JudgeScrenock knows that he doesn’t have to work to reach out to voters, because his friends in the special interest club will come to his rescue in 2018. He literally says nothing. 3/?
