It is insulting that @senatemajldr continues to downplay the severity of gun violence in the United States by refusing to call a vote on #HR8. I don't want to wait to see how many more lives must be lost before he climbs out of the NRA's pocket and starts to take this seriously.

Inaction on gun violence in America is no longer an option. @HouseJudiciary is standing up to advance critical gun reform bills. We mean it when we say #EnoughIsEnough.

Another airport dinner for me and a fellow patron asks the server why she has to pay the 17 cent “employee benefit” on her bill. “That’s my health care,” the minimum wage worker explained. Can’t we do better than this? Should this poor guy have to explain this? #HealthcareForAll

If @realDonaldTrump would meet directly and personally with @MomsDemand @AMarch4OurLives @Everytown @bradybuzz @GiffordsCourage @NewtownAction, there would be a happy and enlightened ending to the gun problem. I have no doubt!

Freedom is as essential to humankind as air and water. As free people, we should all stand with #HongKong’s people as they fight for democracy.

Quoted@vicenews

"We won’t be able to speak the truth if we’re always living in fear.” This is why Hong Kong began rising up.

Couldn’t run a casino? He couldn’t run a little league snack bar.

Quoted@WhitfordBradley

On top of being a racist, @realDonaldTrump has always been a terrible businessman. He couldn’t run a casino. He didn’t care about the people who worked there, or their community. He doesn’t give a shit about your children’s future either.

Two years ago we lost Heather Heyer in #Charlottesville. Her last Facebook post read, “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.” Today we must honor her death with action and continue the fight against white supremacy in the United States.

No more bargaining downward, no more incrementalism. We know what the problems are, and we won’t be shouted down anymore by the bullying, tweeting minority. We must love our kids more than we love our guns.
