August 26 was the 5th anniversary of my being paralyzed. The irony is that whenever I write about #disability, I hemorrhage followers--yet it was an internal bleed that caused my paralysis. Remember: 1 in 5 Americans has a disability and anyone can become #disabled. Be kinder.
So Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar will be the next president of Afghanistan? The same Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar who met with Mike Pompeo last year in what Trump called a very good meeting with similar goals? The same guy whose release from prison Trump negotiated in 2018? Huh.
Reporter who never asked why Trump had to fly to Mar-a-Lago each weekend asked Jen Psaki, “Why is it important for President Biden to visit his Delaware residence so frequently?” Psaki said: “Because it’s his home. You like going home right? So does the President.” https://t.co/WoPY8HlrAy
A lot of tears at this very moving Rose Garden ceremony celebrating the law enforcement officers who protected the Capitol on January 6 as Biden signs the bill awarding them the Congressional medal. These heroic officers and their families have endured so much, then and since.
So the day started with #SimoneBiles back on the beam and winning a medal. Then Speaker Pelosi congratulated Cori Bush and Maxine Waters for their work on the #EvictionMoratorium. Then #ShontelBrown won the Democratic primary for #OH11. It's a #BlackGirlMagic day, for sure.
#Walmart, the largest employer in the US (after the federal government), is requiring all employees be vaccinated by Oct. 4 and all must be masked beginning immediately. Walmart joins a plethora of companies, colleges and hospital systems mandating vaccinations.
There's a dangerous disease that has killed millions worldwide, shut down economies, killed 600k+ Americans and permanently disabled 3M more. Now there's THREE vaccines available everywhere in the US for free. The only choice that makes sense is to #GetVaccinated.
Thrilling win for #IndiaWalton, who is now on board to be Buffalo's first woman mayor and first Socialist mayor in a major upset. Buffalo will be fortunate to have her. Walton is dedicated to public service and progressive change. Such an exciting win. https://t.co/6apA3fRRpR
