(1) Nothing unites the right more than a bill that does nothing but cause extreme pain & anguish to a small, bullied group of children: checks out.

(2) Hatred topped off with a Helen Keller joke.
Right-wing is super obsessed with controlling other people's bodies: especially denying healthcare.
Hard for most of US to really imagine the swirl of emotions & hard work parents of gender dysphoric children must experience as they fight to make their children happy & safe. Horrifying to know how dedicated the right-wing is to cause them additional unnecessary pain & suffering

Perfectly reasonable that Republican leaders are shocked & confused by people & companies suddenly holding them accountable: they have basically had the same agenda of tax cuts for rich, slashing basic saftey net for poor, white & identity politics, authoritarianism for decades.
Mainstream media's false equivalency did great job of hiding Republican agenda from American people while tearing down Democrats. And Democratic quest for "bipartisanship" neutered Democratic leadership. But something broke in last 5 years between Trump & insurrection against US.
While mainstream media continues to carry water for Republicans, The People forced consumer facing companies to embrace a baseline of position of pro-democracy. And Democratic leadership did what felt impossible for decades: accepted reality of Republican disloyalty to US.

After 4 full years under President Trump, we *lost* a total of 2,876,000 jobs.

After 2 months under President Biden, we *gained* a total of 1,384,000 jobs.
We are still down about 8.4 million jobs compared to right before COVID-19 hit, but certainty today's *massive* jobs numbers from February 2021 are a good sign. Image
At this point, a meaningful amount of the remaining 8.4 million missing jobs are long-term lost: will be critical to see how what can be gained back immediately as country opens up in next 2-3 months, then expect the growth slow dramatically and the hard work to begin.

This is an extremely important article to read about how families can think about the risk to unvaccinated children, after most adults are vaccinate, but in the months or longer it may take until children are vaccinated.
I get the criticism & concern over both the characterization of the risks (an attempt to compare the risk of young children & vaccinated seniors), and the many children (and their relatives) who may have higher risks than the average.
Health & education leaders have all generally come around to the desperate need to open up schools, especially for younger children, due to a rigorous cost-benefit to the children (and their family), especially as teachers & adults get vaccinated.

I am tired of mainstream media reporting all of the excuses the misogynistic, racist terrorist gives for murdering 8 people, including 6 Asian women.
Mainstream media & “public intellectuals” also obsessed w/ defending police who push the terrorist’s defenses: lying about his racism, sex addition, etc. Problem not subtlety of how @atrupar or others cover police’s remarks, but why police are spreading the terrorist’s propaganda
Confident that if this terrorist was a minority race or religion, police would not take him at his word on his motives, and report to US about his feelings (he was having a bad day? I don’t care, because I am not sympathetic to him one bit) on the day he murdered 8 people.

An otherwise dedicated public servant, Dr. Birx should not be unfairly maligned because she spent the first 8 months of deadly crisis undermining public health, by spreading dangerous disinformation, in order to ingratiate herself with anti-science Dear Leader.
“[Trump] is so attentive to the scientific literature & the details & the data, & I think his ability to analyze & integrate data that comes out of his long history in business has really been a real benefit during these discussions about medical issues,” crooksandliars.com/2020/03/dr-deb…
Mainstream media has an insatiable appetite for rehabilitation tours. But, there are still over 1,000 people dying each day, due to residual impact of Trump's corruption, cruelty, incompetence: maybe we can wait for crisis to pass before rehabilitating the perpetrators?

I was finally persuaded by the Twitter conversation to turn on #OprahMeghanHarry, and damn this is dark and interesting.
First, and foremost, so critical to spread message that it is OK to seek help for mental health issues when you need it.
Second, stoked our founders got US out of this hereditary monarch situation, and nice of Oprah to finally finish them off.
