‘You say you love your children, but you are destroying our future.’ Our sea levels are rising. Droughts are worsening. Wildfires are spreading. Storms are coming. There’s precious little time left. We must mobilize our economy around a before it’s too late.

The current fight in DC is about more than a wall. It's about whether we are a nation of laws, where the president obeys the Constitution and democratic processes. The American people must inform Trump that we will not become an authoritarian nation.

Much appreciation to for speaking truth to power. We must legalize marijuana in a way that recognizes & repairs the disastrous, disproportionate harms of the drug war & mass criminalization on people of color.

More like, “I’d like to order 25 pizzas. I made up this $300-off coupon + demand you take it, and if you want to talk about it at all I’ll leave.” Queens: Where did this coupon come from? $300 is too much. Who gave this to you? This is weird. Them: I TOLD YOU $300 OFF 25 PIZZAS

You can’t separate marijuana legalization from the injustices of the War on Drugs. If you do, those who profit from private prisons can get another payday w/ marijuana. $ is a justice issue. Communities decimated by mass incarceration need to see investments w/ legalization.

On its own, a promise of jobs is better than no promise of jobs. But that isn't the right question. The question is why do the wealthiest corporations and people get special welfare to do what so many other small businesses do every day for free -- create jobs and employ people.

“I didn’t need to do this” is admitting this isn’t an emergency at all. “I didn’t need to do this” means he’s faking a crisis.

Come for me all you want, but my job is to make sure that people are protected in society. Someone’s got to look out for the people our system is leaving behind - esp now, when most of the wealth created is going to fewer people, those left behind are the majority of Americans.

Is that culture of “strict performance” why Amazon workers have to urinate in bottles & work while on food stamps to meet “targets?” “Performance” shouldn’t come at the cost of dehumanizing conditions. That’s why we got rid of sweatshops.

Amazon touting “jobs” (has anyone fact-checked where this 25k number even came from? How many were promised to be local hires?) ...but they refused to even consider hiring union when we insisted labor be part of the conversation. Union jobs are a key ladder to the middle class.
