I just learned Google employees who haven’t worked in their offices in nearly ~2 years~ all have their own PCR-like instant tests! While shift working clerks, instacart shoppers, factory workers stand in the cold on lines or go without tests! A very underclsss made at every turn!
Finding tests, looking for tests, waiting for tests…in the case of shift workers, losing time you could be earning money or resting waiting in line for tests…if you just work for Google, you don’t have to go to an office, you can test whenever and how often you want, for free—
from the comfort of your own home, having food and supplies delivered to you by ppl who don’t have easy access to tests.

I knew we who work from home had it a lot easier but mon Dieu, the levels…
They cost about $1,000 each (source bloomberg.com/news/audio/202…)

There are 122 million households in the US—send one to each household would be a lot of money, about 120 billion—or, about 15% of the Defense budget. bloomberg.com/news/articles/… Image
Don’t know about you, but I’d rather our tax dollars & all the wealth our society builds from our labor went towards swabs up US noses, not bombs on non-US heads

1. Obama was unusual in that he wasn't the handpicked candidate of the DNC or its owners. (Having billionaire Penny Pritzker run his fundraising sealed his Wall St bona fides.) Otherwise, Dems choose unelectable VPs (Biden, Kaine, Harris) they hope they can install later.
2. But it's weird they always tend to pick VPs who are just awful retail politicians with no support. Biden ran unsuccessfully for president for decades and called Obama "articulate" and "clean." Harris was polling 5th in her home state. TIM KAINE?!!!?! Who was he???
3. You can see the utter contempt on Harris's face. She didn't win primaries. She hates ppl. She seems put out by @cthagod or journalists. She is not comfortable working a room, unless it's of rich donors who tell her she's brilliant bc they know they'll dictate her policy, they

1. A report from the streets of Chicago, where CPS students are walking out, demanding better conditions to face Covid-19. Riding my bike up Statr St towards the Board of Ed, I already see hundreds of students on their way
2. Students crossings fittingly, at Ida B. Wells Drive Image
3. A really beautiful scene — several hundred students in front of the Board of Ed chanting “Hey hey, ho ho, Lori Lightfoot has got to go”

It's fine to be angry w Democrats. You can't reason w Republicans. But a pro-Hillary friend once asked "Do you want to argue w neoliberals or w fascists?" The Dems have the WH & Congress, so I am arguing w & angry at them, bc they're letting ppl die & handing off to fascists.
For years, the Dems have been using the threat of Republicans like an abusive spouse with their fist raised uses the threat of violence ("Do what I want or I'll put you out on the street, then you won't have a home at all and you'll REALLY have something to cry about." )
But...the Dems aren't even providing any of the material comforts they are threatening might be taken away? More ppl have died of Covid under their year of governing than did under the (pre-vaccine) Republican governing year.

Is my tweet thread just going to be typing fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck about everything from now on
Well @RoniNYTimes, shall we dig up the arrest record of everyone's crimes from 35 years before deciding if they are deserving of a vaccine, dental care, an organ transplant—or should they get THE DEATH PENALTY nytimes.com/2022/01/13/hea…
Carceral thinking everywhere. The NYT wants you to go the doctor and have someone—the receptionist? A Twitter poll?—decide if you are good enough to receive care or bad enough to be denied care.
