'Messaging today drives legislating tomorrow. Although symbolic today, voting now improves the odds of these bills becoming law later if Democrats regain control of Congress and the White House. Those messaging bills lying in the Senate graveyard today are likely to rise from the dead.'
Let's make sure that happens in November. #voteblue
Contact your representative and let them know how you feel about this important bill.
From Kamala Harris
"Our Justice in Policing Act will:
→Expand independent investigations into police misconduct
→Establish a national police misconduct registry
→Require states to report use of force incidents
→Set a national standard for use of force
→Ban no-knock warrants in drug cases"
@TonyStark I'd like to remind the people who have given up and are going about their business again that this is why we stayed home from March until June (and why many of us are still staying home now). Most of Europe (with exceptions), Asia (same), Canada, Australia, and New Zealand flattened their curves by respecting health agency directives and stopping contact with most others. Many here who stopped seem to have just picked right back up, ruining it for we who are listening to reason.
@TonyStark I have relatives who intend to have people over for 4th of July. They think that because they live in a rural area and are only inviting family members, they’ll be safe. Never mind the other families who had parties that resulted in people dying; never mind that we’re in one of the worst states; they don’t watch news, so they don’t know. They have no idea where everyone has been or what they do. Nothing will get through to them short of being infected. I’ll stay at home, thanks.
If it wouldn't kill the people I love, I'd show up at every single Covidiot's funeral and say, "Science told you so". But I won't. Because Covid-19. And science. And I'm not an idiot.
Also, vote the GOP out.
Trump and the GOP are leading the country and many states into ruin.
The UK is in equally dire straits.
Germany, NZ, South Korea and other countries not so much because their governments basically work, people act (mostly not entirely) for the greater good, and the countries are led by smart people.
@TonyStark Talk to even one individual who is putting their own life on the line in a hospital. These people don't care and won't until it happens to them.
There is no empathy and it is coming straight from Trump. If you care at all about other people, you'll help remove him.
@TonyStark If you're not doing something to remove Trump, you're basically voting for him. End of story.
@TonyStark The good news is that there will be no second wave of Covid19 this fall. The bad news is that we’ll still be in the first wave.
Every Republican must go.
This didn't have to happen. It wouldn't have happened if we'd had national leadership that put human lives ahead of personal political concerns. It wouldn't have happened if so many Republican governors hadn't acted as a Trumpist cult followers and rushed to throw open states without regard for public health consequences.
We were and are utterly without leadership and every single person will suffer as a result.
Please do something to change this in November.
Hope for our future!

He's going to need every bit of help against the GOP. Let's all help him out.
Biden campaign raised $10M more than Trump in the month of June https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/505566-biden-campaign-raised-10m-more-than-trump-in-the-month-of-june
Strong, coherent, and consistent messaging from the start - regarding handwashing, wearing masks, social distancing and staying home - would have prevented countless amounts of suffering and death.
Trump failed on every level.
I hope this story makes at least one person think twice right now. We need new leadership as fast as we can get it.
Man who went to party warned people not to be an 'idiot like me’ a day before dying of covid-19:
I could not have said this better myself:
From Elizabeth Warren
"Donald Trump is going out of his way to defend Confederate traitors who killed American soldiers 200 years ago in the name of white supremacy—but refuses to defend the American soldiers that Russia tried to have killed.
Donald Trump is a failed Commander-In-Chief."
