Isn't this a kind of hostage-taking squared? First end the programs. Then shut the government. Then promise to temporarily restore the programs you've ended & reopen the govt you have closed, in return for the ransom of $ for a wall that 55-60% of country consistent opposes?

Explaining marginal taxes to a far-right former Governor: Imagine if you did chores for abuela & she gave you $10. When you got home, you got to keep it, because it’s only $10. Then we taxed the billionaire in town because he’s making tons of money underpaying the townspeople.

It is not possible to cheer on Donald Trump unless you reject almost every teaching of Jesus. If this makes you angry, find a teaching of Christ that DT has fought for. The only things Trump has in common w/Jesus is they both hung out with hookers & used ghostwriters.

RE: @AOC and her dancing. She looks to me like she's having fun dancing at an elite school. She does not look like she's oppressed. That's the secret about Obama, AOC, Bernie, Warren and the rest who talk in terms of "the privileged" / "the oppressed": They're all privileged.

1) As Trump ends the year with a flood of lies about his wall, we need to recapture a core truth about this presidency. Trump isn't “twisting the truth” or “stubbornly refusing to admit error.” Trump is engaged in *disinformation.* This is a different thing entirely. *THREAD*

Very nice to meet you too, @GovMattBevin! You asked who @ProPublica is. We thought we’d give you some answers. Like everything we do, they are, you know, actually accurate.

There was a throwaway sentence in a textbook I was reading: "In 1793, the French actress Olympe de Gouges was guillotined by the Jacobins, after daring to demand political rights for women as well as men." Of course I had to find out who she was, and why I'd never heard of her.

I'd like to talk about why conservatives say things like this, for my progressive friends who genuinely don't know anyone like this. I was a libertarian, sort of, as a teenager (I recovered) and have read Hayek, Nozick, and Friedman. Here goes.

INCOMING THREAD: You might have noticed that Porter County, Indiana still had 0% reporting for the #2018Election as of this morning. See this map from CNN. Porter is that gray county in the upper left. I was a poll worker there this past Tuesday. You might want to buckle up. 1/25
