When I’ve gone out for a jog or explored a house being built, I’ve never worried if anyone will hunt me down to kill me— then try to falsely claim theft to justify murder after video evidence surfaced 2 months later.
In plain language, here’s why every single Dem shot down the $1.8 TRILLION Taxpayer funded NON-BIPARTISAN GOP Senate #COVID19 bill 2x in which McConnell chose not to consult with one Dem & are currently vilifying them for…
McConnell’s GOP bill has weak Corp stock buyback language that can be waived by Treasury Secretary:
—Executive compensation limits only last 2 years
—Language on worker retention is weak, incl easy outs for corps—can fire at will
—Zero assurances/any proof US workers will benefit
PSA from a good friend of mine, a PhD in nursing & professor at U of WA School of Medicine, after working a triple shift:
“Please please please stop hoarding masks! Unless you‘re providing direct care to patients coughing in your face, YOUR MASK WILL NOT PROTECT YOU 1/4 #COVID19
Staying home & washing your hands may protect you, but MASKS WILL NOT.
Do you know who your masks will protect? Those of us in the healthcare field who are RUNNING OUT OF MASKS because people keep stealing them from our waiting rooms & off of personal protection equipment carts.
All Seattle-area hospitals are now mask rationing because there is a critical shortage of masks here. And they are getting really hard to replace - BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE HOARDING THEM.
This means my nurses working double+ shifts get one mask per day to protect themselves.
Since I’ve experienced it 1st hand more than once— I’m going to tell you what it’s like when you have a loved one & immediate family member who’s serving in a combat zone away from you, or is suddenly deployed with less than 24 hours notice to a war zone…
Before they leave, you scramble to make sure everything’s in order:
—Last minute checks for next of kin notifications…just in case
Time always comes too fast—You wait til the last second watching their plane & your heart depart.
And you feel gutted & terrified.
You spend hours, days & sometimes, weeks waiting to hear from them.
And when you don’t, even though you swore you wouldn’t, you finally give in—terrified of what you may find & check the news anyway—to look for stories of air strikes or hostile activity in their part of the world
Last Sunday— October 6, 1998 was the 21st anniversary of the murder of Matthew Shepherd. He was driven to a remote, rural area in WY, robbed, pistol-whipped, tied to a fence, tortured & left to die all because he was gay.
Had the world had not known Matthew Shepherd & seen how hate let him be beaten, bruised & forgotten to die on a fence post—or Jack become homeless— days like #NationalComingOutDay or #Pride month wouldn’t need to exist.
I long for the day when there is no need to declare this.
So…Let’s recap: One week into the official #ImpeachmentInquiry
The following NEW information has come to light:
🔹Trump/Zelensky redacted transcript released; proves Trump’s extortion
🔹Trump personally pressured Australian PM to help discredit USIC/Mueller probe findings
🔹Trump regime hid the transcript of the call with Australian PM on codeword, secret NSA server
🔹Trump implicates Pence for his phone calls w/Ukraine #PenceKnew
🔹Trump rants on twitter about arresting Adam Schiff for Treason
🔹Trump threatens a Civil War if he’s impeached
🔹Trump mocks 16 y/o climate activist Greta Thunberg on twitter while at the #ClimateChange Summit
🔹Trump wanted to build moats w/reptiles & wanted US CBP/Military to shoot immigrants at the border
🔹Trump personally called UK PM Boris Johnson to help him discredit Mueller probe
His debt inexplicably disappeared
They refused to release 96% of his records
He lied under oath
They mocked ALL sexual assault allegations
Their “investigation” was a sham
They destroyed the life of Dr. Ford
For of us who are victims—WE KNEW. And it’s triggering all over again…

I live in a country where a man— who will Never have laws giving the government power over his body, but wants no government legislation on an exponentially growing gun epidemic— will always predictably deflect to & cite lies about abortion in response to a tweet on gun violence.
Jane Elliot’s famous experiment on racial prejudice: She divided the children, who were all white, by eye color, then she told the children that people with blue eyes were smarter, faster & better than those with brown eyes.
His entire presidency is based on his racism, as is his re-election strategy.
Hate crimes have increased exponentially in just 3 years— they’re emboldened by rhetoric “infested” with racism & xenophobia of a white Nationalist at the helm.
