Replying to @slawrenc1 @JamilSmith

As the son of immigrant parents, that Amendment is why *I* have citizenship. I’ve held a top secret clearance and written software for the defense and intelligence communities by virtue of that citizenship.

Quoted @RealCandaceO

If I were President, the punishment for burning the U.S flag would be the renunciation of citizenship. No jail time, no fine— simply one year to liquidate your assets and get the hell out of our country. In exchange, we’d extend citizenship to a hardworking LEGAL immigrant.

Nothing even remotely fascist about this plan.

At least 13,000 people have no idea that burning the flag is one of the official ways you’re supposed to dispose of it when it’s deteriorated.

It gets worse The arresting cops: •Turned off their dash cams & body cams •Lied in their reports & omitted their threats to murder the Black family •Claimed they “feared for their lives” that the Black mom would kill them Cell video saved this family

It gets worse

The arresting cops:
•Turned off their dash cams & body cams
•Lied in their reports & omitted their threats to murder the Black family
•Claimed they “feared for their lives” that the Black mom would kill them 

Cell video saved this family

Firing these monsters is not enough. Prosecute them to the full extent of the law

Two CT men did 30 years for murder on the basis of a forensics expert’s testimony that a towel of theirs had blood from the (horrifically bloody) crime scene. The towel hadn’t been tested, and it wasn’t even blood. Brutal rebuke from state Supreme Court. https://www.courant.com/news/connecticut/hc-news-new-milford-murder-supreme-court-reversal-20190614-shsnedup3bhldmn5hg3a35ettu-story.html …

Quoted @EsotericCD

They say the hardest thing to do in all of professional sports is to hit a curveball, which makes me think that "changing an agitated 11-month-old's diaper" ought to be made into a professional sport so we can finally have a fair comparison.

Changing diapers is literally the easiest part of parenting. It gets harder!

Quoted @michael_hendrix

In Los Angeles, it takes 43 years to save up a 20% down payment by setting aside 5% a year on the city’s median income. In San Francisco, it takes 40 years. In New York City, 36 years. In 1975, it took just 9 years. https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2019/06/why-millennials-cant-afford-buy-house/591532/ …

It’s stunning the extent to which Baby Boomers thrived under the American Dream—college, social safety net, housing, pensions, climate, etc.—then consciously decided to not pay it forward, leaving future generations screwed.

The U.S. Treasury saw a 31% drop in corporate tax revenues last year, almost twice the decline official budget forecasters had predicted. Receipts were projected to rebound sharply this year, but so far they’ve only continued to fall. https://politi.co/2IEenGB 

So it turns out the Trump tax law was an even bigger corporate giveaway than previously thought—shocker!

I hope I’m remembered for my Grammy-winning collaboration with John Coltrane, my Gandhi-like demeanor on social media and, above all, my brief-but-torrid marriage to the Butterfield 8-era Elizabeth Taylor.

So to recap: it’s treasonous that the New York Times reported on U.S. cyberstrategies that according to you are... not true?

On the one hand this makes no sense. On the other hand, this would be sufficient to indict based on what they just indicted Assange for.

Quoted @Comey

Political candidates and elected officials should not talk about the future prosecution of any individual. Law enforcement decisions must be apolitical.

Dear Lord, Grant me the misplaced confidence and lack of self-reflection of James Comey. Amen.

Ma’am. Your husband awkwardly defends a woman who lied chronically and diminished the office she held. And a network puts him on tv to be an expert on a job that he held for ten days. Don’t be sad, be ashamed. https://twitter.com/deidrescaramuc2/status/1140085447269527552 …

Why are police officers who’ve joined white supremacist groups allowed to continue policing black and brown communities?

Korey Wise faced decades in prison for a case with no evidence against him. The DNA results even coming back as negative. While brock turner who had all the evidence against him plus witnesses who had to pull him off and got 3 months. Never tell me White privilege isn’t real.

The reticence to believe the Trump admin on Iran isn’t because of Trump’s lies on trivialities. It’s because people doubt this war would be good for America and they remember all the lies and terrible expert testimony that sold them into previous wars in this region
