Quoted @srl

The county clerk in Dane County said he has an email teed up in his inbox to ask people to serve as poll workers. He feels "sick" every time he thinks about sending it, knowing it could get people infected.

When you're a county clerk in #Wisconsin and the #Democrats are making you complicit in manslaughter.

Quoted @WI_Elections

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has issued an order removing the option for absentee voters to submit a statement indicating they were unable to get a witness signature. Effective immediately, all voters must have a witness signature on their ballot for it to be counted.

The fuck.

Wisconsin must go ahead with delaying their primary scheduled for April 7. @GovEvers says he is onboard but @SpeakerVos needs some convincing

Quoted @HillaryClinton

Millions of people have lost their employer-tied health care over the last two weeks because of the pandemic.

It's an easy call: Re-open the health care exchanges.

Trump just announced what amounts to a Medicare-for-All policy for uninsured COVID-19 patients. Congrats to Hillary Clinton & centrist Democrats for again letting Donald Trump outflank you from the left:

Hospitals and suppliers supply only what they need for patients who can pay.

They'll never provide enough, as long as 50 million or more are uninsured.

Elect Bernie Sanders and demand #MedicareForAllNOW to solve the #Covid_19 crisis.

So I made a #NotMeUs thing and you can get it on all kinds of stuff. More designs available in my shop as well. Thanks for checking it out.

My music gigs are all cancelled. My art clients are restaurants and bars so you know what’s happened there. It’s small commissions like this that will help me make it through this mess. Have a gander. Thanks and be well.

What a waste! #COVID19Pandemic is forcing Dairy farmers to dump their milk down the drain so the milk market doesn’t implode. Why not give it away to those who need it? We’ll get to the bottom of it at 6:00.

Quoted @davidsirota

Some facts:

1. The House is controlled by Dems

2. A majority of House Dems are co-sponsors of a Medicare for All bill

3. Trump is suggesting government should directly pay health care bills

Maybe the Dems who control the House should do something here

I don't know who needs to hear this, but WHERE THE HELL ARE THE DEMOCRATS WHO CONTROL THE UNITED STATES HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

Feeble pretexts notwithstanding, the real reason the #Democrats are pushing ahead with the #Wisconsin primary on Tuesday is to try to bludgeon Bernie into dropping out before the Biden campaign collapses completely.

And they're willing to kill people to do it.

New Rule: Joe Biden, Symone Sanders, Tom Pérez, and Governor Evers have to work the polls in #Wisconsin on Tuesday. No masks, no gloves. No hiding.

If they think it's safe, show it.

Still no takers on this. There's still time: we can let four good poll workers stay home where they should be.

In #Mexico, housing is a constitutional right.

But two factors are nullifying this:
1.) #Airbnb-fueled gentrification.
2.) Decaying #Infonavit housing projects, built by private builders gorged on #WallStreet & #WorldBank cash.
