#THREAD: From Women's Rights, to Civil Rights, Voting Rights, LGBTQ rights...
Many may feel overwhelmed, or at a loss for words, over the borage of fronts on which our fundamental rights are being attacked — and years or decades of progress seemingly being undone all at once.

This is a false narrative that the GOP, Barr, and Trump have all tried to push repeatedly.

#FTR: Trump is suggesting that Puerto Rico is a burden on the United States...because it finds itself in the path of another storm.
It's also worth noting that Dorian will likely side-swipe Puerto Rico, and directly hit Florida...which he interestingly doesn't see as a burden.
@RealTimers - Are you aware the Tulsi Gabbard is the ONLY "Democratic" candidate being promoted by Russian trolls/bots? Are you comfortable giving her a platform, as it seems you are not aware of this?
#FTR: NASA is being clear. They're calling it the "Moon To Mars" program.
They must remaster human spaceflight, practice for extended stays (b/c going to Mars is a long trip/stay), placing tech in the Moon's orbit to "pick up" on the way to Mars, etc... nasa.gov/topics/moon-to…
