Thread: Excuses my vulgar tweet. I’m absolutely furious right now. @JoeBiden just told a story about a Marine veteran with “a traumatic brain injury” running over a woman, (I assume he meant PTSD) killing her and her dog, then driving off with her body and “molesting” her..
He then used that story to say “we need to end the stigma” this is the kind of Hollywood “war to evil” narrative that’s both discredited by statistical information and medical opinion and extremely harmful to veterans suffering from the the effects of war.
These vets do hurt themselves too often, but they very rarely hurt others. They lose their will to live, not their souls. This is a disgusting display of inept pandering void of conscience or fact. And y’all want us to care about “anonymous sources” when he’s saying this.. wow

Thread on sports and politics: the teams I love: Braves, Bulldogs, Falcons and NASCAR have been there for me literally my entire life. The first time my fam could afford anything: a Braves game in early 90s against the Expos. We lost badly, but it hooked me and I got to watch
The greatest era of Braves ball in front of a tube TV console in our 1966 single wide... poor, smiling and proud. I watched @DeionSanders play for both the birds and the Braves while his antics made headlines. I grew up hearing the stories of how @HerschelWalker was a gladiator
We spent every Saturday night at the local dirt track helping my youngest uncle win in his late model with worn out equipment and less horsepower, but all the talent he needed then are breakfast at my Nanny and Papaw’s on Sunday before glueing ourselves to a @NASCAR race

Thread: Let’s be honest, this might be the least surprising thing to come this week. We live in a time where the history of things only matters if it’s convenient. For example, the emancipation proclamation monument is being threatened,

not because of what it stands for, not because of it’s symbolism, and not because of who paid for it (former slaves) but because the untrained, ignorant passer by may mistake various nuanced aspects for an opposite message.
It makes sense that a crowd of such spoiled, bored, and angry people would take issue with a song so scared people have charged into battle to defend their rights with only its melody as inspiration.

Short thread on Mattis: Here’s all I’ll say about this. General Mattis made his reputation on 2 things: 1) the skill to surprise an enemy and his peers with swift and decisive action 2) the audacity to know it and say it in a nonconformist Soundbyte. Ironically...
That’s what he has most in common with Trump. Mattis had the tactical skill to win a battle, region or time frame, but his entire era of leadership in the Middle East conflict couldn’t win the war. That’s his pitfall across the board.
In his world, and in his mind, you do things a certain way, a proven way, even when politics advise against it. Trump on the other hand is less calculated and more reactive to populist sentiment and current events. Neither are right or wrong but certain to clash.

So @SpeakerPelosi posted a huge bill at 11pm (here rules.house.gov/sites/democrat…) let’s dissect what @HouseDemocrats tried to pass as “Coronavirus relief”
paid sick leave mandate: all employers have to provide 7 days of regardless of size FOREVER. With added days IF COVID19 relates. Plus carve outs for missed work completely unrelated to the virus (e.g. domestic violence, etc).
- emergency unemployment funded through social security. This literally takes resources from seniors and could take a long time to enact. Im told R’s countered with disaster unemployment assistance under the Stafford act (like we do for natural disasters-$40B relief fund).

Thread: Certain things in life just cost me more money. I jokingly call it the crippled tax. I have to buy a first class seat on flights more than 2hrs bc thr pressures against my nubs becomes unbearable. I have to use valet parking or hourly parking at the airport because the
Walk across the parking lot causes me to sweat, when I sweat my nubs rub raw inside my liners... blister then bleed. I have to buy premium seating at concerts because can’t get to any other seats. My shoes and pants wear out quick because the metal and plastic is unforgiving
But perhaps the worst added expense for us crippled folk is a phone. At least once a year I fall so hard that I shatter my phone. It used to be 2-3 times a year but the water proofing helped a ton. (My hands are also severely damaged and I dropped things all the time)

Thread.

As an EOD (Bonn) technician the United States government trained me extensively on our history of combating explosive threats at home and abroad. In the heat of this debate I’d like to add some perspective on the subject from my perspective.
Background:

we banned these types of guns for 10 years (94-04).

During that time we had: Oklahoma City, Olympic park, Eric Rudolph, and 9/11. Every major study (federal, independent and interest groups) showed little to no change in gun violence during that time.
What’s changed since then?

We now have about 600 million guns in circulation. Innovation makes its cheap and easy to build the parts they’d ban in your garage with tools from Home Depot

The internet has brought information on how to build bombs and guns to our hands
