They think they are in on the gold rush. They are really doing the pump while others do the dump.
This guy does as good a job of breaking down the crypto scam as anybody I've ever seen.

We just tried to pass a domestic terrorism bill that would have helped address gun violence. Blocked by Senate Republicans. Sickening. When will it be enough?

As a non college degree holding laborer it is bizarre being on Twitter seeing people complain that $10k in debt relief is useless. I mean if they don't want it I'll take it. I got debts too.

Seems like limiting bullet purchases would be a good idea. Or at least large purchases trigger some type of red flag warning/cross check. Data brokers who can track every damn tampon or diaper purchased anywhere can surely do the same for bullets!

Trump signed H.J. Res. 40, effectively ending the SSA requirement to enter the names of people who receive mental health benefits into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. This is the database used by the FBI to determine who is able to purchase firearms.

The shooter purchased 1,657 rounds of ammunition and there were no red flags in place to save those children.

#ThugFord is complicit in the death of every Ontarian, and in the financial distress of every Ontarian. He failed to release over 5 BILLION in pandemic funds to help people, he cut health care, nurse pay, etc. he must go. #VoteFordOut2022 #OntarioElection2022 @TorontoStar

The same people who believe children are too fragile to hear about sexual identity or to learn real American history will do nothing to prevent children from having to paint themselves with the blood of a dead classmate to make a shooter think they're dead, too. #UvaldeMassacre
Story on @MSNBC right now: an 11-year-old student recounts how the gunman looked her teacher in the eye and said “goodnight” before he shot the teacher. This girl’s friend was beside her. She covered herself in a dead classmate’s blood hoping she could play dead to avoid being

So you as an "environmental" group jet around the country to go after Democrats for things like total elimination of all debt for college kids who mostly are from privileged backgrounds, yet no presence at all at something like this NRA Convention? Makes total sense...😑

Actually, @NinaTurner, this will help a lot of folks that don't make a ton of money. I figured the squad (making $176K/yr), and people like Brie Brie, making money w/podcasts, would be unhappy they're not having their debts wiped out.

One of the greatest culture shocks when I arrived in the U.S. was the blind veneration of police. After years and years of living here and reading about this country, I now realize that it's the structural pillar of white supremacy.

Maybe after 27 years of one-party rule, Texas is ready to try a different path.
