LOCK THEM ALL UP Sen. David Perdue bought stock in a company that produces protective medical equipment the same day senators received a classified briefing on the coronavirus https://www.businessinsider.com/coronavirus-david-perdue-bought-stock-company-producing-ppe-after-br... via @Business Insider

We will look back at Tommy Lee’s open letter to the president as one of the greatest short stories of the 21st century.
Nearly everyone who survived the 1918 flu pandemic, which claimed at least half a million American lives, has since died. But their memories, preserved in oral history interviews, shed light on its indelible impact. Listen if you dare. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/04/us/spanish-flu-oral-history.html
why can’t someone carry @Donald J. Trump
He didn’t die of natural causes. My father was murdered for working to end racism, war and poverty and for speaking truth to White people in power who didn’t want to share it. The evils he opposed then still exist now. #COVID19 is revealing just how much.
Due to the boredom of this quarantine I have decided to join Instagram. You can follow me there @johncleeseofficial You can follow me there for all sorts of fun things. #johncleese
We know that #COVID19 is a disease that attacks people's respiratory systems. Instead of protecting the air we all breathe, Trump appears ready to make air pollution even worse, which could contribute to increased respiratory issues for Americans in the years to come.
For those of you looking for something to listen to at home, I've put together a Spotify list of some of my favorite @Grateful Dead songs. Actually I put it together because I was going crazy looking for something to do! And this really helped!!! https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7ceNq4gGtbshMK0SYhW2sl?si=O5d7cj0bSY2C4PhkTij36A
The cruelty and absurdity of our for-profit health care system is more obvious in the midst of this crisis than it has ever been. The American people want Medicare for All.
New from @Yusra Murad: Support for "Medicare for All" reached a nine-month high in March, with 55% backing among all voters. Net support jumped 9 points from February to March, as the coronavirus outbreak surged. https://morningconsult.com/2020/04/01/medicare-for-all-coronavirus-pandemic/
My daughter Gabby while at school heard a teacher say, “Finish this statement, “When the going gets tough...” and of course having grown up listening to me use the personally more correct HST version, yelled out, “THE WEIRD TURN PRO! She didn’t understand when she was corrected!
Trump told states they were on their own to purchase medical equipment, so that’s what MA tried to do. But then the federal government outbid MA at least 3 times – and reports show two of our orders were seized by federal authorities. This is unacceptable. https://www.bostonglobe.com/2020/03/31/nation/warren-feds-why-did-you-take-massachusettss-medical-su...
Hey Laura, it is a calamity. It’s a calamity because of the willful, delusional, purposeful denial of this crisis for months by Trump and sycophantic and dishonest propagandists like you. It is the greatest failure in Presidential history and exposes you as a lethal fraud.
And just like that, the Congressional oversight provisions for the 1/2 TRILLION dollar Wall St slush fund (which were *already* too weak) are tossed away the day the bill is signed. This is a frightening amount of public money to have given a corrupt admin w/ 0 accountability.
PLEASE NEVER FORGIVE OR FORGET. THIS IS PERSONAL FOR ME AND SHOULD BE FOR YOU. THANK YOU.
