C'mere #GenZ I be needing you to teach me some #21stCentury colloquial slang language so I can impress my grandsons. The other day my 16 year old complained that his parents were too strict and I said, "It do be like that sometimes, Homie." He said, "You speak my language? Cool!"
#DoBeDoBeDo two hundred thousand words in the English language, and more every day, we'll never live long enough to learn them all!
I might use some of this new lingo in tweets too, but only if I'm talking to #GenZ because others may not understand the references. I do want to talk to #GenZ because they are the ones who saved us from a second term for #TheHateYam & they must do it again. We must #PassTheTorch
At 09:30 #TouThao says he was taught #CPR at the police academy, recertified every two yrs. Why didn't he pull that skill out of his ass during #TheMurderOfGeorgeFloyd? The first thing they teach you is to take a pulse, did he take #GeorgeFloyd's pulse?
This meeting takes place in August 2020, it's warm in Minnesota in August, and #TouThao is there voluntarily, he is not under arrest, so all five of these men are #CovidIdiots because they aren't having this meeting outside and with masks on.
@ParrishMed "It is legal for employers to require employees to be vaccinated, as long as they adhere to safety and anti-discrimination laws. (OSHA) allows employers to impose legitimate health and safety policies if they are job-related and consistent." ehstoday.com/covid19/articl…
@ParrishMed should not allow employees to work without all the proper vaccinations, from varicella to #Covid & everything in between. Patients should not risk deadly infections by interacting with hospital staff, neither should their visitors, it's as important as credentials.
Use a search engine to find the #FEMA vaccination site nearest you, it's worth driving to no matter how far away it is, they don't require an appointment, they don't send you codes that expire almost immediately, they don't confuse the issue, they are so well staffed no waiting.
And #FEMA has wheelchairs on-site for the use of the mobility challenged or frail, they have people who will go get you a wheelchair, bring it to your car if you park in disabled parking and honk your horn. They'll push you right thru, you'll only be there about a half-hour.
If you are in the greater #Orlando area, this is the #FEMA#Covid#Vaccination site that is going to make it easy for you to get vaccinated, no appointments, no codes, no jumping thru hoops, no wait, no muss, no fuss!
In 1969 I went up to Max Yasgur's farm to sleep in the mud and sit on a hill overlooking a stage where #JanisJoplin, #JimiHendrix, and #JoanBaez played. So I know what 500 thousand people look like. They look like a sea of swaying humanity. There was no crime in #WoodstockNation
500 thousand Americans have died, and I think the number is just too incomprehensible, it's so big, it has lost it's meaning. I've found when I say, "500 thousand people have died!" somebody always asks, how many were supposed to die this year? Because they honestly do not know.
#GOP senators who voted to #ConvictTrump are being censured by their party. I hope the censure comes in writing, so they can frame it & hang it up in their offices, display it during their re-election campaigns! #BadgeOfCourage! TY senators for the strength of your #convictions!
And in the #House, those #Congressmen#BrokeRank with the #MAGANaziParty will emerge as #PartyLeaders, having earned a measure of respect from all Americans, even those who are ideologically opposed. We all know we need an opposition party we just want a rational, principled one!
That isn't a photo of #TeresaMicmac, it's just a stock photo. The Smithsonian has a photo of #TeresaMicmac but I don't have their permission to publish it, if you can imagine that, even tho I am her direct descendant. But of course, she probably has a thousand descendants.
OFFS! Not a daughter who can spell tho! #Polyglot!
Why don't you give the rest of those #CapitolPolice & your 400 intimidated staffers more medals? Lots of good that will do when someone comes to kill them! You sweep it under the rug. No wonder some police felt so betrayed they went home & killed themselves. They should all quit.
After all the lies, when the dust finally settles, the truths will be known. The #WH doctors have been lying for #Trump, but we knew that. How disappointing some people are. Yeah, they snatched him back from the jaws of death and then lied. 1/2 nytimes.com/2021/02/11/us/…
And then after they pulled him back from the brink of death, they allowed him to make speeches saying "I feel great, don't fear the virus, & it won't hurt you". So, that's a lousy career those dozen docs are having. Worse than the doc who #technored#MichealJackson while he died.
At 0447 this morning, @FXMoore and I became great-grandparents for the first time. Our wonderful grandson in Maine found himself a fabulous wife who has gifted him a perfect girl child on this cold Maine morning. Sophie Jean, 6 pounds, excellent health, a beauty like her mother!
27 years ago, when that grandson was born to us, we were sailing in the tropics. I dreamed in the night that I had painlessly birthed a baby boy. When I woke, I knew my grandson must have been born in Maine, because the only way to birth painlessly is if someone else does it 4U.
This great-grandchild hasn't ruined my figure a bit!
I was at the UN right after the #GulfWar. I had something dreadful to say abt #SaddamHussein on a daily basis, which he deserved b/c he invaded #Kuwait. The Iraqi media compared me to an unparalleled serpent. I happened to have a snake pin, and wore it to my next meeting on Iraq.
The press asked me about it, I thought, “Well, this is fun.” On good days, I wore flowers butterflies & balloons, on bad days, all kinds of bugs & carnivorous animals, as an additional way of expressing what I was saying a visual way to deliver a message.
I had an arrow pin that looked like a missile. When we negotiated the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty the Russian foreign minister asked, “Is that one of your missile interceptors you’re wearing?” And I responded, “Yes. We make them very small. Let’s negotiate.”
There is a pervasive bias against believing the symptoms and complaints of pain made by women & #POC. We were warned against it in nursing school, it was named as a reason why women's heart attacks are ignored. It's a real thing, but it's not the whole reason #POC are dying more.
"Black Americans are nearly five times more likely to be hospitalized with COVID-19 than white Americans" #POC are more likely to require hospitalization but that isn't the result of any bias in healthcare. That's another problem that needs to be analyzed. thehill.com/homenews/news/…
Don't shoot the messenger and I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings but we have to talk about #COVID19 and the two #vaccines that have come out. I'm not speculating, I'm going to cite sources. There are problems and it's better to know about them. A thread about #sabotage:
But "Pfizer & Moderna trials tracked only how many vaccinated people became sick. That leaves open the possibility that some vaccinated people get infected without developing symptoms, and could then silently transmit the virus" nytimes.com/2020/12/08/hea…
Mayor Lori Lightfoot made a series of stunning admissions regarding #AnjanetteYoung, who was handcuffed naked during a wrong raid of her home by Chicago Police. 'shoddy police work leading officers to bust down the wrong door' There is no 'right' door to bust down! #4thAmendment!
Kids are depressed. My 13 grands range in age from 27 yrs to yet unborn but expected in May. All of them are impacted by this #Pandemic in one way or another. Even the 2-year-old! And I've missed so much of their lives, and they've missed having grands!
My 11-year-old is crying because he can't go to the store to buy his mother a Christmas present. He saves his money all year, earns "A's" on his report card, does his chores just so he can buy Mama a candle holder or some shit at Christmas, but nobody will let him go to Walmart.
Well taken care of, on the floor, dying of fever! Well taken care! Nursing infants torn from their mothers! Comforted in cages by todders trying to quiet their crying! No food, no water, no beds, no blankets no mothers, no milk, no diapers. Just like #SummerCamp! #Barron sld go!
When #AsylumSeekers present they are assured by our treaties of #DueProcess a hearing before a judge. If we decide not to grant asylum, we have to deport them. We are not allowed to imprison them, dismantle their bodies w/#ForcedMassHysterectomies & steal their children forever.
Yeah, remember when #CaptainBoneSpurs said being repeatedly bombed deaf and senseless, or being blasted 30 feet in the air with regularity, isn't really an injury, even if it does make you completely deaf, leave your ears ringing forever, give you #PTSD & #TraumaticBrainInjury.
