If Trump can't handle the thought that he was beaten by Joe Biden, maybe he can console himself with the thought that he was also beaten by Kamala Harris.

I’ve heard from people that they want a reason to vote FOR Biden beyond the fact that he's not Trump. I respect that. So here's 75 reasons to vote for that don't have anything to do with Trump.

1. $15.00 federal minimum wage
2. Reinstate DACA – allowing new applicants to apply
3. 12 weeks federal paid family leave
4. Universal pre-kindergarten/childcare for ages 3 and 4
5. Tuition-free college for those with household incomes less than $125,000 THREAD 1/15

@TonyStark I was in a dark place for a long time. Finding all of you helped more than you can imagine. Hope is a fragile thing, and all of you helped me get it back. I fought for my husband, my Mother and the world! Thank you, Tony, and everyone! I lost my best friend of 38 yrs to Trumpism, but finding new people has eased that pain too! So, THANK YOU! Love to all and maybe one day we can see each other in person!

I heard about the latest terrible SCOTUS decision and thought about a song by the Fixx from 2012, titled "What God?"

"Save me from the things I don't want
Can you give me what I need?"

Obviously, SCOTUS isn't going to give us what we need as long as it's run by this predominantly GOP-approved lineup.

@TonyStark @AgentCarter_SSR I am grateful for all the people I have met along the way of this terrible four year ordeal, I am grateful for all the work everyone did to get Joe elected, and I am grateful for my family who stood by me even if they disagreed with me. 🦃

I'm thankful we took a step to defeat some evil in this world and to know we will keep on.

@TonyStark
Thank you, Tony. For keeping us focused& motivated. For always staying positive& looking forward. For reminding us of all we can do to help each other& our country. For always being there to listen & be a friend. For bringing us all together, because I don't think any of us could have made it through the last four years alone.💜

@YinzPittsburghers You can't eat or drink inside here unless it's in your own house until January.

Today it's warm enough for outdoor happy hour if people want. What bars/restaurants need is more stimulus $ so they are still here next year.

@phillyaccent I heard people complaining about the bars closing early last night.

The reason we had to have them close are the people who wanted to hang out in them during a pandemic crisis.

If you have to drink that much before you see your family, you have 2 reasons to

@AgentCarter_SSR @TonyStark @SteveRogers Also, I haven't been to a service that wasn't someone else's life cycle event in a couple of decades, but my parents have been doing a weekly Zoom service since March. My mom misses having her knitting group there in person, but she's takes the virus seriously. They still do their food pantry and clothing drives, just contactless. People can be religious and take care of their communities.

@TonyStark Next year we will be together because we did the right thing this year. (To those who are doing the right thing and not going to large gatherings or traveling.)

Tony Stark :verified: boosted

@TonyStark For this community and the larger one that sprang up out of necessity to fight tyranny on our home turf, I will be thankful for the rest of my days.

I'm thankful for the friendships we've made.

For the chance to keep making a difference and finding joy in our activism, I am thankful.

President-elect Biden speaks eloquently of the pain of the empty seat at the table. Many of us know that pain. I'm thankful that we elected an empathetic president with a big heart.

@AgentCarter_SSR I'm no biblical scholar, but I seem to remember a line about needing to be seen praying in the pews and streetcorners and how that wasn't necessary. @TonyStark @SteveRogers

@NatashaRomanoff @TonyStark @calculsoberic Sadly, yes. They're called Trumpers, or Nazis, the terms are kind of interchangeable. These are people who believe the medical industry is part of a conspiracy to control the USA through a hoax pandemic. There is no reasoning with these people. There is no re-educating them. They will continue to hurt and kill other people until they themselves are gone.

@TonyStark @calculsoberic I read yesterday that there's a high number of medical workers leaving the field or taking jobs in other countries because they're burnt out and some are even being threatened. Can you fucking imagine the kind of walking, talking garbage heap who would threaten a medical worker?
