"The 25 points of the NSDAP Program were composed by Adolf Hitler and Anton Drexler. They were publically presented on 24 February 1920 "to a crowd of almost 2K and every single point was accepted amid jubilant approval." (Mein Kampf, Volume II, Chapter I)
Dear #3rdWaveFeminists and women of America: Once upon a time (in my lifetime), women were the property of their father and then their husbands. Upon marriage they ceased to be Miss Mary and became Mrs John Doe. They had no help if their husband beat them. It was their ... 1/
... their fault. They were not allowed to work outside the home without their husband's permission. They could not get credit in their own name and so, therefore, could not buy property, own a car, or go to post-secondary education. Birth control ... 2/
... was only prescribed, by some doctors, if husbands agreed. Men could legally rape their wives. Women spent their lives either pregnant, giving birth, or cleaning diapers and then raising children that men werent expected to do help with and called 'hen-pecked' if they did. 3/
For all of us who care about our democracy & who cherish the freedom and liberty of being Americans, now is the time. Raise your voices. Contact your elected representatives at every level. Write letters, call in to radio programs, share on social media. VOTE. 2/6
To the Republicans who are concerned about the decline of our democracy: you must join your colleagues Ana Navarro, Steve Schmidt, & yes, George Will & speak out. Contact your party leaders and let them know this is not okay. Stand up for America and for American principles. 3/6
A day away from Twitter to face down #cancer drama with medical folks.
Then dealing with the financial devastation wrought by this administration on sick people with a social worker assigned to me via my health insurance.
I am so angry, it's palpable.
Trump is a monster.
I know we're all supposed to be drinking the #civility KoolAid--but I am so angry with the folks who put us here.
I guess that civility mantra is easier if you have money and aren't sick/#disabled.
Oh-my-G*d am I angry.
I'm angry for everyone--even the smug 3rd party purists still trying to keep us from winning back the House & Senate because something something privileged bs.
I'm one of a few million Americans awake when we should be sleeping because of the pain of #cancer or some other chronic illness.
Adding to our sleeplessness is knowing #healthcare is under threat. We may not be able to afford it due to the #GOP's actions.
My parents were Civil Rights workers. My father was a Freedom Rider. As a small child I was taught the legacy of #MLK.
I watched people invoking MLK on Monday. Not in defense of #votingrights or in outrage over how the #SCOTUS ruled on two pivotal cases on gerrymandering.
MLK wasn't being invoked for #votingrights but for Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who lies to America every day about policies that could very well kill me & others.
Policies that are hurting millions.
Policies that have kept me a citizen without equal rights in my own country.
What kind of country do you want to be a citizen of?
These are important questions, serious ones, and they are the real questions on the ballot come November 6th.
Every American needs to consider them.
Do you want your country committed to justice for all and a consistent and universally applied rule of law?
If so, you cannot support a single Republican candidate.
Not a single one.
If you want to live in a nation that is able to compete in the global marketplace and believe that the only way to achieve that is by giving all of our children a world class education then you cannot vote for a single Republican.
Yes, our government has been taken over by Russia using their agent trump, getting financial backing from far right libertarian Billionaires, propaganda by Fox, votes from radical religious and hate groups, enabled by a complicit corrupt Congress owned by those same billionaires!
Now it seems due to a major flaw in our Constitution we have only one option; vote! #BlueWave2018 Yes there is #Mueller who is making progress but it’s obviously going to take awhile. Our founders didn’t allow for politicians becoming so corrupt they would cede power to an enemy!
The problems however are too numerous for a few tweets, but you all know them already. trump designed a cabinet to help him destroy the country. He’s acting like s dictator and as each day goes by, those actions and statements are becoming more egregious. His goals are clear and
Any other time, economists would be talking about rising interest rates, ignorant tariffs,
gas prices rising,
huge debt load,
over-inflated stock market,
unregulated greed, &
already in to high-risk investments
The #GUNVIOLENCE epidemic is an AMERICAN PROBLEM. Doctors in other countries like England, Australia, Germany do not see gunshot wounds AT ALL! There have been 5 shootings at US school since Parkland, but Congress has enacted no legislation and no research funds. We must #vote!
/2/ Trump is a real danger. There is absolutely no doubting that. But the true head of this snake lies squarely in the lap of the alt-right contract writers - those planning out the shit show and paying our politicians and media to make it happen.
/3/ If this were a disease, Trump would be the acute form while the alt-right would be chronic. We get rid of Trump and the chronic simply flare up another accute case as they hone in on our constitution. #NoConCon
We must stop this legislation and not let it gain any traction.
Call your Senators and ask them to oppose the Cassidy framework for repealing ACA.

Gang. We've got a serious problem that is not being reported. Bear in mind, this thread mostly is re:the one state I have info for in this matter. & that is #Montana. It is HIGHLY likely that most other states have this problem #EOC#HAZMAT#DisasterPreparedness
Here we go. 1/24
Direct quote from the LEPC Yellowstone County May 10, 2018 minutes: "Regional
Haz-Mat Response Team in Billings used to rely on State and Federal funding but
this source has dried up. Keeping team together with local funding that may only
last two more years. ..." 2/24
"...May need to limit response area due to funding limitations.
Need legislation for increased funding."
Iowa voters! The Iowa House has passed Joint Resolution 8 calling for an Article V Convention of States to amend the US Constitution-as desired by #ALEC & #Kochs! The senate will vote ANY DAY! Tell ur state senators 2 vote NO! Contact info & more below #NoConCon#KochBrothers 1/
Alarmingly, #JR8 had BIPARTISAN support in the IA House. Still, u probably should focus on Senate Republicans first. Here is a list w/ their names & numbers. Tell them u will #VoteThemOut if they vote for a Convention of States! iowasenaterepublicans.com/senators/ 2/
My Dad was shot & killed in 1991. His life was stolen. It left me parentless at the age of 19. I've been volunteering w/ @MomsDemand since its inception 5 yrs ago. This work is grueling, but I (like so many others) are compelled...
...to do this work because I simply have no choice. Sitting on the sidelines is not an option. The person who murdered my Dad will be released from prison in 1 1/2 years -- and could buy a gun w/o a bg check in a private sale....
...bg checks are not required in Missouri (where I live) --- or federally because Rs thwarted the Manchin-Toomey bg check bill after Sandy Hook. When they closed the door on us, we took this battle to the states....
Another school shooting in the US today. It’s tragic, it’s horrible & escalating in our gun culture.
I💚Math. An int’l language, it makes sense to me when the rest of the world doesn’t. Especially when it comes to numbers & statistics on guns in the US
