Since Don Lemon is trending for saying that we need to get rid of the electoral's a common misconception that the electoral college can only be changed by constitutional amendment.

We don't need an amendment.
We need 74 more electoral votes. ImageImage
The National Popular Vote bill will take effect nationwide when enacted into law by states possessing 270 electoral votes

As of 7/20, it's been enacted into law in 16 jurisdictions possessing 196 electoral votes, DE, HI, RI, VT, CO, CT, MD, MA, NJ, NM, OR, WA,CA, IL, NY, and DC Image
As you get ready to register to vote on #NationalVoterRegistrationDay, consider this:

in the last 20 years, 2 presidents have overwhelmingly won the popular vote but lost the election due to the electoral college.

We can change that. #VoteReady

Fore more information on the #nationalpopularvote, read "Let the People Pick the President" by @jessewegman and "Every Vote Equal" by John R. Koza. #NationalVoterRegistrationDay #VoteReady

Biden is just ROASTING SCOTUS right now and it is glorious.
This is the best speech Biden has given since he was elected.

Damn, this is good.
Here are the highlights on the executive order on abortion and reproductive health care.

This press conference is a fucking disaster.
He only starts crying when someone asks how *he* is doing. Jesus.
So, the cops didn't go in because they thought all of the kids were already dead?

What the fuck.

1/ Attention fellow sugar addicts:

Today is the soft-open of my new business, Marcenet Mercantile, named after my grandmothers, Marcella and Neta.

(BONUS: Discount code 15PERCENTOFF)

Shown here: home made marshmallows enrobed in Belgian Chocolate.

👉… Image
2/ I won't be posting every day about chocolates or caramel or cookies, but about once a week, I will add things to my store and will post about them. Pictured here: home made caramels in the best Belgian dark chocolate on the market.

3/ If someone told me I'd become a chocolatier in my 50's, I would have said...yeah, that sounds about right. 🤣 When one door shuts, a window opens, which is great unless you get too fat from eating the "mistakes" to fit through a window. ➡️… ImageImageImageImage

1/ My husband is officially 6 months cancer free, according to last week's bone marrow biopsy.

He had a stem cell transplant for AML last June.

The day he was diagnosed, his white count was 135k. (Normal is between 4k-11k.)
2/He went into respiratory failure, had a heart attack, was put on life support, and as he crashed, I was told his prospects were "not good" by his doctor.

I was told over the phone, because COVID was in full swing on 1/13/21, the day he got sick.

I could not be with him.
3/ To everyone's shock and delight, he woke up 3 days later.

He was in the hospital for 3 weeks, getting his first round of chemo, scared and alone. I was not allowed to be there. Because of COVID.

This was when vaccinations were mostly for people who worked in healthcare.

1/ At the height of the COVID epidemic first wave that hit the original ground zero, Seattle, Washington, my husband volunteered to work as an ICU doctor instead of seeing patients virtually in his practice. We took a large financial hit, but it was 100% worth it...
2/ Later that year, he was diagnosed with AML, a type of cancer that nearly killed him the same day he was diagnosed. I couldn't be with him while he was hospitalized because of COVID. I couldn't be with him while he underwent treatment because of COVID...
3/ I stupidly thought that once vaccines were available, we were going to be able to breathe a sigh of relief while the rate of infection decreased. I thought we'd be able to see our kids again without worrying about him getting COVID.
