Cruz is only the beginning of the problem for the TOP - Trump Owned Party - where truth-telling is no longer tolerated. My thoughts on January 6th and what needs to be done to protect our democracy from taking a direct hit. #holdon #lookup cnn.com/videos/politics/2022…

This is bravery.
"I just enjoy my brain and my health way too much to be hitting people." A decision to protect his mind was only part of Ohio State's Marcus Williamson deciding to take his story to Twitter during the Rose Bowl. On the boldest play of the game @latimes: latimes.com/sports/story/202…

I'm currently reading my 5th or 6th article today that includes in it some form of looking back on the pandemic and its lessons. *Every* *single* *one* includes a variation of one or more of the following from scientists, public health agency heads, journalists, etc.: 1/x

Thank you for your advocacy.
Today is my last official day as an Assemblywoman. It’s fitting that I will spend this morning with the UFW celebrating the implementation of Farmworker Overtime —the 8 hour day for agricultural workers. (Which went into effect on 1/1) None of my bills stole my heart more.

"both sides"
A perverse dynamic: Because total GOP opposition to protecting democracy is a foregone conclusion, it becomes accepted as a backstop condition of our politics. So it faces less scrutiny. The story then becomes that *only* Dem infighting caused inaction: washingtonpost.com/opinions/…

My name is Gillian Battino, and I’m a democrat in WI running to be the first woman physician in the U.S. Senate. For years, Ron Johnson has failed our state, siding with extremists over our residents. It’s time to remove Ron. Can you retweet and follow to help amplify my message?

La representacion mas antigua de Gatorade
Este mural de Tetitla #Teotihuacan siempre ha sido identificado como “la representación más antigua de un dentista” en Mesoamérica. Sin embargo la escena se da en un juego de pelota, por lo que posiblemente está hidratando a un jugador con una jícara. Acaso el primer aguador?

Really fucked up to see January 6 approached by media as an anniversary, as if it's in the past, as if there's no present threat. Just as fucked up to see white-only experts contribute analysis when people of color have been sounding the alarm about these groups forever.

There is no labor shortage. There is a living wage shortage, a hazard pay shortage, a child care shortage, a paid sick leave shortage, and a health care shortage. Does a new year mean we can settle this debate and finally treat workers with dignity?

A crisis is a Senator who would minimize COVID. @marcorubio, I remember when you minimized the role of the gun in my daughters murder. When I visit her at the cemetery now, it keeps getting more crowded. Go ahead Marco and minimize COVID, the rest of us will choose life.
