I’ve been to war, twice. Iraq in ‘09 and Afghanistan in 2011. I am just a fucking ER doc. But it was there, in the deserts far,far from home, that I made my bones as a newly board certified ER doc. It is around that time, I think that I lost my capacity to feel […]
Whatever happens now, it began on a yacht in the Red Sea in fall ’15. A multinational coalition of nations committed itself to Trump’s election specifically because the gathered leaders knew Trump could be manipulated into a war with Iran at the right time. REPORTING confirms it. For years, people who hadn’t done the research […]
TW: rape. (Thread) I was raped in an apartment by 2, or maybe more, men. I know there were 2 because I saw their faces. The rape lasted several hours. There were more men in the room. They laughed. I don’t know if they raped me too. I shifted between consciousness and sleep. When I […]

Based on rules of impeachment trials, Chief Justice Roberts, who will preside over any impeachment trial of Trump, must exclude both @senatemajldr McConnell and @LindseyGrahamSC from playing any role in the proceedings. Or demolish the credibility of @Scotus forever… .this is not even a close call. The only way any other decision can be made […]
Bryan A. Garner; I’ve always called myself Republican. I keep my Twitter feed generally apolitical & will continue to do so. Generally. But as of today, I’m switching parties. Over impeachment. The Republican positions aren’t consonant with intellectual honesty. As of today, I’m an Independent. 1. ALL politicians use their official position to advantage themselves […]
Former Gov. Matt Bevin’s total disregard for the victims and their families in pardoning murderers and a child rapist is sickening. Beyond inappropriate, the actions are heartless and vindictive, and in cases of alleged political gain, warrant investigation. Our political system must work to give victims of crime a voice and not silence them. I’m […]
1. Boston is going to be really good. Duh. 2. Philly is too. Wait until they get Chandler & Muscala back before judging. 3. Philly does need someone else to attack off the bounce besides Simmons and McConnell. Can it be Fultz? 4. Can’t imagine many guys give Embiid more trouble than Baynes. He just […]
The thing I always wonder is: How many projects have been tougher to finish, how many bugs left unfixed, how many games made worse because a studio couldn’t find enough veteran developers, because so many of them had burned out and left the industry because of crunch?
why is fascism on the rise? maybe 1 reason is bcs certain elements of the left have adopted philosophies, tactics & sensibilities (from extreme nationalism to trolling) once universally rejected because of their historic association w fascism & normalised them. Just a thought.
Black people – Have you ever had the cops called on you for some innocuous reason? Let’s talk about it. Caption your response with the hashtag#LivingWhileBlack .

still bugging me that Carrie Underwood carved her OWN name into the side of his pretty little souped-up four wheel drive, like, his insurance company WILL come after you? carve “CHEATER” or “FUCK YOU” or something, is this your first rodeo?
Two-part question: Do today’s neo-Nazis, racists, and white supremacists prefer the Republican Party or Democratic Party? Why?
BREAKING: Michael Cohen has just changed his party affiliation to ‘Democrat’ As recently as June he was the Republican Party’s deputy finance chair. Boy do things change quick!
Putin’s killing people in the U.K., the Chinese regime has created a massive Uighur gulag, and the Saudis have murdered a journalist who was living here. None seems to fear serious consequences from the Trump administration, as the world becomes a darker and more dangerous place.
In a relationship or marriage, the term “do it together” i.e. sharing task together unify love in home. Please your wife is not your slave, object or inferior being. I read a thread about a guy who feels its absurd to share house chores with future wife. My one cent, you future wife ain’t your […]
Hillary Clinton; Seriously, you asked Russia to hack me on national television. President Trump directly accused Hillary Clinton of engaging in a conspiracy with Russia to affect the 2016 election during a rally in Pennsylvania. https://t.co/9fA4h71vJ2 — NBC News (@NBCNews) October 11, 2018
US military grounds its entire fleet of F-35 fighter jets in the wake of a crash in South Carolina last month
1) Feinstein doesn’t have a law degree, either. 2) Did you know there are no qualifications – not even a law degree – for serving on the Supreme Court? 2) If the laws are so difficult to comprehend that you need a law degree to understand them, the country is failing. — Jonathan Allen (@jonallendc) October […]
The White House empowered Saudi crown prince MBS as he confronted Qatar, as he kidnapped Lebanon’s prime minister, as he starved Yemenis, as he crushed dissent. Will it continue to sell him weapons if it’s confirmed that he murdered a brave journalist, Jamal Khashoggi? — Nicholas Kristof (@NickKristof) October 7, 2018 All true but not […]
Some of u have issues w/Haley. Look guys, she’s: Not dumb; Not a misogynist; Not a racist; Not a serial liar; Not a jerk; Not a Trump relative; Not under investigation; Not a sexual assaulter or domestic abuser; Not a coddler of murderous dictators. So, yes. She’s best they had. — Ana Navarro (@ananavarro) October […]
Conor McGregor; We lost the match but won the battle. The war goes on.
URGENT: Please keep your Republican sons at home on election day, with all those women heading to the polls, your son’s won’t be safe from false allegations. If you’re a Republican with a penis, use protection – voting isn’t safe for you. — Secular Citizen MD (@secularcitizen2) October 9, 2018
CNN homepage: “Trump is on a winning streak.” What’s the purpose of that headline?
A president who 54% of America didn’t vote for nominated a man who 52% of Americans oppose, and was confirmed by Senators who represent just 44% of the US population. Democrats lose again. And some wonder if they just aren’t ruthless enough to win against the likes of Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell.I check in […]
McConnell this AM refused to say under repeated questioning if he would stick to the standard he set with Merrick Garland and NOT fill any SCOTUS vacancy in 2020. “The answer to your question is we will see if there’s a vacancy in 2020,” repeating on Fox what he said Saturday
Latest reports are Saudi Arabia murdered and dismembered journalist Jamal Khashoggi, according to the Turks. If so, the US must cut off arms sales to Saudi Arabia; we should recognize that the Trump green light to the crown prince has been a catastrophe, https://t.co/XD7mZepeGb
I know you’re tired, but we cannot give up. I know you’re angry, so let’s use that anger to motivate us. Think about how different yesterday’s outcome would have been with a Democratic Senate majority — and then let’s do everything we can to make that a reality.
