COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

To the defense of my friend @ThePlumLineGS after the hypocritical and demagogic attack on him by Josh Hawley. https://t.co/lfZyJO5Fj7

@ed_kilgore @ThePlumLineGS Hawley is a con artist. He is smug and arrogant and doesn't do a damn thing for Missouri… https://t.co/rzipRWmbph

.@MooneyDebra: all those like Hawley & all those like @ed_kilgore serve the interests of the wealthy: that's where their money (& thus food & shelter) comes from. None will ever challenge anti-American NeoLiberal policies because the wealthy use them to rob everyone else blind.

.@ed_kilgore: hey Ed, I left dozens of comments at #NYMag showing you, Chait, etc. wrong. Then, I got brigaded or something & they made me change my name. I stopped leaving comments because they were all ghosted. Are those the actions of a site that makes valid arguments?

.@ed_kilgore: #NYMag lil' Honeckers forced me to change my screen name from this (which I've used there since 2011) & now moderate all my comments. Meanwhile, someone "making a good salary from home $1200-$2500/week" isn't moderated. One thing about Honecker: he was competent.

.@ed_kilgore: #NYMag claims to have suddenly found my username (24AheadDotCom, in use there since 2011) "inappropriate". Please explain. https://imgur.com/a/WzR0tFf

.@ed_kilgore blogs "Taxes or Culture War? GOP, Trump Divided on Midterm Message". Trump could run on replacing apple pie with month-old borshsch and he'd still win. #TheResistance makes the Washington Generals look competent. #MAGA #Trump2020

Pruitt tactical pants must be retained, delivered to the Smithsonian for prominent display in upcoming exhibition on the Emperor of Grift.

Joke's on you. Ex-coal lobbyist Wheeler will push #Koch agenda unencumbered by personal crap (the only thing you 2 & #TheResistance understand). Either dumpster dive him or learn to make policy arguments. MT @ed_kilgore MT @LParsons69 [some childish personal crap about Pruitt]

.@ed_kilgore: name the significant difference on #immigration between #Ocasio2018 and WalMart, U.S. Chamber, Tyson Foods, exploitative growers, & sweatshop operators. Trick question: there's no significant difference. When will you be a real liberal & call her on it? #NYMag

.@ed_kilgore: hey Ed, you blog about Scott Pruitt. Rank these: 1. His pens, job searches, etc. 2. The fact #Twitter censors ~30% to 60% of the tweets to him. 3. The damage he's doing to the enviro. My ranking: reverse that. Your & #TheResistance ranking? Just #1.

.@ed_kilgore: P.S. #NYMag has moderated and then approved my last two comments, neither of which had links. Other than keeping moderators busy & annoying one of the few visitors to the site, what's the reason for that? Moderating users isn't a way to build an audience.

It's enemy of my enemy. Nolte - a pusillanimous sycophant if there ever was one - has to defend Trump no matter what. You're just a means to his crooked end. MT @ed_kilgore Sure wasn't expecting support from this quarter [@NolteNC smearing KevinNR]
