Just reported: About half of recent ICU patients with #Covid19 in #Vermont are vaccinated. Sounds like the vaccines aren't working, right?

WRONG. Vaccines are working and here's why. But first, let's talk a bit about unprotected sex.

A thread. (Refs at the end.)

1/n Image
Imagine 100 couples capable of conceiving are having regular unprotected sex, though none are interested in conceiving. Being crafty, they are using the calendar method. At the end of the year, there will be ~24 pregnancies.

2/n
Now imagine that one of those couples starts using condoms.

Condoms work "okay" in preventing unintended pregnancies, and under usual circumstances, 13 out of 100 women will become pregnant per year.

OMG! A THREAD!

Tons of questions yesterday about what happened after my #Nicholl Top 50, how I used it, and if it started my career. It’s a complex story, so I thought I’d share.

HEADS UP. I am well-aware I am far from a position to preach on a mount, but this is my...

1/15
...experience and if yours is different, COOL! Love to hear it. But no need to trash mine.

I know I'm bullshit more than you do.

After @TheAcademy released the Top 50 and finalists, I expected a lot of emails and phone calls. 7000 entries and mine near the top? Why not?

After all, it was MY FIRST SCRIPT EVER (8th draft tho). I expected studio tours and cocktails at the Marmount within a month. But two weeks go by and only crickets.

I got maybe 5 or 6 emails from mgrs and producers. All of whom passed. 1 politely, the others ghosted.

I’ve avoided directly calling out misinformation from Mr. Slavitt for over a year but his latest thread is going to get people hurt. This is a point-by-point rebuttal to false assertions made by Mr. Slavitt, with citations.

My upshot: Get #vaccinated *and* #WearAMask

/🧵
⚠️ Misleading: “So far those are largely among unvaccinated people”

20% of new cases in LA county are in fully vaccinated persons. Public health officials indicate that they expect that number to increase

Get #vaccinated and #WearAMask
publichealth.lacounty.gov/phcommon/publi…
⚠️ Misleading: “There are areas of the country where there are low vaccination levels that are experiencing the largest growth in cases?”

#Massachusetts and #Vermont are in the top 5 for most vaccinated and growth case in cases

I am going to rant about taxes for a bit because that 2018 FOX interview with Cori Bush has me pissed, at her for not doing her homework and at FOX, Mitt Romney, and all the other tax propagandists who focus solely on federal taxes. Remember Romney's 47% who pay no taxes? A lie.
But it's a lie that goes over well as it comforts and flatters the wealthy by portraying them as the people grossly bearing the burden of paying for everything while 47% are freeloaders. Well, first off, everybody pays into Social Security and Medicare, even the undocumented.
and they will never receive those benefits they pay for. There is a small exception for those who work but earn so little all their taxes are refunded as an Earned Income Tax Credit. They way Republicans scream about EITC you would never know it was originally a GOP plan (Nixon)

I believe that healthcare is a right not a privilege and my policies include abolishing slavery, honoring treaties and removing the racism, sexism and white supremacy from the US Constitution.
I invite you to read (preferably out loud) my proposed edits/amendments to the US Constitution. These are changes that I believe virtually all Americans can support (making passage by Congress and ratification by the states very possible).

I recognize the right of the people of #CHAZ to self determination and independence, I'm thinking of giving them some oil wells in #Alaska to survive; maybe #Russia can help secure those wells, and calling on freedom fighters of the world to move there:

SATO (South Atlantic Treaty Organizations) should immediately deploy in #CHAZ and secure its territories from the regime of #DonaldTrump which in real oppress and kill their own citizens live on camera with support of the #US National Guards militias.
#GeorgeFloyd #ICantBreathe
The people of #California should allow #FUSA (Free US Army) to burn their wheat fields in order to support #CHAZ independence from the regime of #DonaldTrump who lost legitimacy and is hiding in a bunker under the #WhiteHouse:

1. Am I correct that @SenSanders, as the #Vermont at-large House member, voted for 2001 #AUMF? It's my understanding that House member @RepBarbaraLee was the only member to vote no.
2. That's the vote that has us in #Afghanistan, #Syria and #Iraq and justified #Guantanamo. We all agree the 2002 AUMF for Iraq re-invasion was foolish. If we want to talk about that then we should talk about the fact that two of the folks who hid Saddam's nuke program are
3. @TheJusticeDept's Bill Barr and likely @WhiteHouse #Cipollone. So if @BernieSanders wants to open up the intel on the Iraqi nuke program that led to invasion, you came to the right place. My January 15, 2019, Pre-confirmation Bill Barr post.

1er bilan de cette primaire du #NewHampshire?
3 faits majeurs:
1. #BernieSanders vainqueur mais avec 1 marge plus faible que prévu sur #Buttigieg. Ils sortent en tête de la séquence #Iowa/#NH
2. Désastre total pour #Warren ET #Biden sous les 10%
3. #Klobuchar surgit vraiment.
RT
2) Le #NewHampshire, juge de paix de la 1ère "étape" des primaires démocrates, a rendu 1 verdict en 3 étages:
. les 3ers candidats ont chacun de quoi se réjouir.
. Il y a 2 vaincus écrasés.
. Le grupetto (désolé mais j'aime ma métaphore TDF😉) des petits candidats est écrémé.
3) Pour #BernieSanders, si la victoire est bien moins éclatante qu'en 2016 dans 1 #NewHampshire frontalier de son #Vermont d'élection, à cause d' 1 contexte différent, "a win is a win" et le contrat est rempli. Il apparaît, avec l'effondrement de #Biden, en "frontrunner" national
