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.

.@kdrum: Trump wants to make July 4 all about himself & bask in outrage from his opponents. See my pinned tweet for how to avoid giving him a victory. Will you help avoid giving Trump a victory this 4th of July?

.@kdrum: #MoJo & other faux liberal sites (The Nation, Huff Post, etc.) all push immigration policies that'd help U.S. Chamber & Koch lower wages. But, the eenayo blog on AOC is the first one I've seen that requires the use of a time machine. Try to be real libs & real journos.

.@kdrum: like the Koch bros, U.S. Chamber, Tyson Foods, WalMart, Facebook, Microsoft, American Apparel, etc. you want to increase immigration. The only question is how many millions each of you would let in over the next decade if you could. @RubeHeretic

@kdrum @MotherJones - and you do know that Gmail says your (calpundit) email is not secure.

.@RubeHeretic: many years ago, #WashingtonMonthly & #CalPundit archives were full of the worse kind of spam (like CP). @kdrum didn't clean it up (even the CP). But, he (& later MJ) did delete comments showing him wrong. P.S. He has the same #immigration stance as the Koch bros.

@24AheadDotCom_ @RubeHeretic CP? Deleted comments? The Koch brothers? What?

I know you aren't just playing dumb. 1. I took screenshots of some of the spam at WM at the time. 2. Do you deny that WM (when you were there until now) & MJ delete comments that show them wrong? MT @kdrum CP? Deleted comments? The Koch brothers? What?

Every time I think I can get behind @MotherJones because of @ClaraJeffery, @kdrum does something willfully offensive https://t.co/zTpZUQ7GXR

.@leahmcelrath: I'm curious, what do you think of #immigration stance of @ClaraJeffery & #MoJo in general?

.@KDrum: you never answered my 2nd question, try again. Why do USChamber, WalMart, & McDonalds want #immigration reform so much? #tlot #ows

.@kdrum: bummer about #UCI. 2nd question: why do USChamber WalMart & McDonalds want #immigration reform so much? What's their profit motive?

@24AheadDotCom Profit motive? I think their motivations R complex; increased supply of legal labor does depress wages, but not only @kdrum

@24AheadDotCom I also think that these large companies and the very wealthy R so globally diversified that they no longer possess a @kdrum

@24AheadDotCom & while it's patently offensive to contemplate a little history shows Sons of Liberty did the same to Geo's stooges @kdrum

@24AheadDotCom so there is historical precedent for more than mere expression of disapproval in words; tar and feathering being 1 too @kdrum
