You #resist folks need to bring your #BlueWave back to drown

Congress,
the White House,
your governors,
mayors,
state Congress, council persons

every
last politician in calls, letters, & emails.

The right to vote is not a cure all but it’s central to democracy.
You need to threaten a general strike, boycotts of companies that donate to Republicans.

And I’m saying YOU because I saved democracy twice already
and I am not really about helping

until the widespread performative support of Black people

turns into tangible change.
This Administration has proven what I’ve been saying -

Democrats don’t stand for freedom for all of us

they just savage my rights and freedom more gently.

Only you can change that permanently.
Black people have the numbers to swing but we’re tired of being your political mules.

Why should we do so much of the work to get slightly less screwed?
And don’t tell me they’re “working on it.”

White needs are emergencies.

Black needs are an afterthought.

All marginalized people really.
So get to work.

I’ll totally take you across the finish line with my vote.

IF you save it.

If you don’t? Welcome to the club.
YES I SAID

IF YOU DON’T WANT TO TO BE TREATED LIKE BLACK PEOPLE

SAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE.
In what other job can you NOT do your job, ignore your bosses, and still get paid!
And don’t tell me there’s nothing you can do.

The Senate can refuse to have a quorum until they pass the For The People act and the presidents agenda.
There are other parliamentary ways for them to process

and stop progress on any legislation

until they work FOR the people

instead of against us.
The Texas Democrats have shown the way.

YOU must demand it for the national leadership to have the guts.

If you fail I’m gonna be no worse off.

But y’all are fucked because you don’t know how to exist outside the mainstream.
If you don’t want to end up like the rest of us, it’s your turn white people.
I turned off discussion because EYE am not the one you need to be discussing this with.

I read and retweet most quote tweets though.

We tab out whether there is a God or some Gods etc (according to the title)

twitter.com/i/spaces/1mrxm…
Atheists are welcome too! The full title of the talk is “#QueenAshJosConvos: One Supreme God, multiple gods, no god?”

And everyone is given their time to speak if they wish to share ideas. Right now @JShahryar Is dropping the greatest knowledge. And has a GREAT voice.

"She's putting her comfort before other people's lives."

Reason number one why no one should ask Black people to ask nicely.
No one starts out yelling & screaming for something they want that another party is withholding.

Not if they want it badly & don't want to use force to get it.
But if time after time AFTER CENTURIES go by

and your basic human needs and rights

are declined by people who refuse to see you as human?

COUNT YOUR SELF LUCKY WE ARE ONLY YELLING.

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

You’re a real ally to our disabled community.
As your birthday approached several people talked about how kind and helpful you’ve been to people.
You’re truly a great listener. I love that you were not scared away by my bluntness in our first encounter.

Instead you responded with frankly more kindness and understanding than I was due.

If people understand that their children are

actually
literally

people.... it helps.
For example I hate it when I confide in a lover and they try to fix my problem.

No, I want you to address how I FEEL about the problem.
Like I’m not an infant, if I want advice I’ll ask.

I want to vent safely. It helps me process my emotion out.

I want to be soothed, in whatever way YOU are comfortable.

A hug.
Empathize.
Relate.
Wrap me in your arms.
Make me laugh (after you listen.)

Including fur babies!
