@ElijahSchaffer I call bullsh*t.

You don't mind, do you @NYTimesPR? Of course you don't, all you do is spew bullsh*t so you must get called out constantly.

For reference, here is exactly what @MaraGay said on @MSNBC (you can verify it, I might have transcribed something wrong)...
@ElijahSchaffer @NYTimesPR @MaraGay @MSNBC "I think this is another area where Democrats really need to get serious about talking about what this threat is. Ah, I think you said it really well, Joe, a minute ago, where you talked about, ah, the need to stop being surprised, by all of this, ah, and start taking it.."
@ElijahSchaffer @NYTimesPR @MaraGay @MSNBC "..seriously.

You know, it's really concerning to me that the Democrats haven't just gone ahead, at this point, and said 'We're doing this on our own' in terms of getting a commission together, um, to explain to the American people how we allowed the insurrection to take.."
@ElijahSchaffer @NYTimesPR @MaraGay @MSNBC "..place in the Capitol. I think that really needs to move forward swiftly, um, you know, the reality is here, that, ah, we have a large percentage of the American population, I don't know how big it is, but we have 10s of millions of Trump voters, who, ah, continue to.."
@ElijahSchaffer @NYTimesPR @MaraGay @MSNBC "..believe that their rights as citizens are under threat by simple virtue of having to share the democracy with others. Um, I think as long as they see Americanness as the same as one with whiteness this is going to continue. We have to figure out how to get every American.."
@ElijahSchaffer @NYTimesPR @MaraGay @MSNBC "..a place at the table in this democracy. But how to separate Americaness, America, from whiteness. Until we can confront that, and talk about that, this is really going to continue.

I was on Long Island this weekend, ah, visiting a really dear friend and I was really.."
@ElijahSchaffer @NYTimesPR @MaraGay @MSNBC "..disturbed. I saw, you know, dozens and dozens of pickup trucks with, ah, you know, ah, explicatives against Joe Biden, ah, on the back of them, ah, Trump flags and, in some cases just dozens of American flags. Which, you know, ah, is also just disturbing.."
@ElijahSchaffer @NYTimesPR @MaraGay @MSNBC "..because essentially the message was clear, it was 'This is my country, this is not your country. I own this.' And so, until we're ready to have that conversation, this is going to continue. What really is concerning to me as well, its not just Democrats in Congress, .."
@ElijahSchaffer @NYTimesPR @MaraGay @MSNBC "..I think there is a large percentage of Americans, even from my colleagues, ah, in journalism who are invested in some way in pretending that this isn't the fact that it is. That is the real concern. Because, you know, the Trump voters who are not going to get on board.."
@ElijahSchaffer @NYTimesPR @MaraGay @MSNBC "..with democracy, they're a minority, you can marginalize them, long term, but if we don't take the threat seriously, then I think we're all in really bad shape."

@jack 1. Of late, Twitter has obviously NOT been operating in "good faith" when it comes to its "Good Samaritan" content moderation.
2. If that is not obvious to YOU, then you are part of the problem and will never solve the issue.
@jack 3. Trust is earned by your actions. However, both your actions AND your words - especially when compared to your actions - can lose it.
@jack In the exercise of freedom of speech, there can be no half measures. Twitter either is or is not a platform that anyone can use to speak their mind.

@KTSMtv "revoke permits and certificates of occupancies"

I'll bet that's murky. How about just revoking their ability to operate as a restaurant?

The idea is to create a desire on the part of businesses to comply with the temporary rules.

Allowing them to temporarily operate as..
@KTSMtv ..restaurants allows them to survive when they otherwise might not. Removing that option for failing to follow the rules thus becomes a business decision.

Don't make it a legal matter like revoking permits, craft it as part of an Order from the County Judge.
@KTSMtv That way it all goes away when the Order is superseded or when the County Commissioners Court terminates the original Emergency Order.
