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.

@mattyglesias Well he DID work for Ben Carson. So there’s that. What is his GPA?

.@melp55: Trump has always been extremely vulnerable to his base over the huge flaws in his plans. Rather than pointing out those flaws to them, those like @mattyglesias - a corporate-owned flack - have only ever helped Trump by pushing anti-American NeoLiberal/Koch schemes.

.@muchprofound: "NeoLiberal" usually means pro-Big Biz Koch-style policies: loose borders, loose regulations, free trade, globalism, etc. All of which the corporate-owned #Vox & @mattyglesias have constantly pushed.

The claim is that Trump withheld congressionally mandated assistance to Ukraine pending Ukraine agreeing to make stuff up about Joe Biden.

.@mockingbuddha: Trump's horrific, but @mattyglesias is a GE-sponsored hack who pushes the Koch/NeoLiberal line. Almost all the opposition to Trump is because - in his own extremely dim way - he's dared go against NeoLiberal orthodoxy.

@mattyglesias Our addiction to guns maps perfectly to a severe alcoholics desperate attempt to do anything other than quit drinking.
24AheadDotCom_'s avatar
From @24aheaddotcom_
.@markhamiltonmsw: if easy access to guns is the major contributing factor to mass shootings as @mattyglesias thinks (to the extent he thinks), explain why there were few if any non-crime-related mass shootings in all the years that full-auto machine guns were freely available.

From @24aheaddotcom_
GE-sponsored idiocy: @mattyglesias says "even tho immigration reduces crime *rate* there's always going to be a non-zero level of immigrant crime that can be exploited by demagogues". 1. Considering 2nd/3rd/etc gens, does it really reduce the rate? 2. Why do we need extra crime?
