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.

@AjitPaiFCC @StateDept @usembassykl @RedWhiteBlueDot @usembassytokyo Do Asians receive 5 billion Robocalls a month like Americans do?

.@Dviddles: your question is extremely weak & would just help @AjitPaiFCC. If you really care about robocalls, recruit a smart person to go ask him tough policy questions at his public appearances. On video for Youtube. The key parts are "smart" & "tough".

@AjitPaiFCC Sincere question- isn’t that a bad idea (the network not being able to be separated)?

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@caroljsroth: since @AjitPaiFCC hasn't & probably won't answer your 5G question, go to his public appearances & ask it on video & demand an answer. Ask *experts* for downsides & develop a question that'll really put Ajit on the spot. I'll help you do that for free, just ask.

@AjitPaiFCC @ITU @StateDept @CommerceGov @NTIAgov Did you discuss Americans receiving 5 billion Robocalls a month?

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@Dviddles: AjitPaiFCC constantly gets replies complaining about robocalls, just as he always has about Net Neutrality. Have any of those replies worked? (Hint: no, and they'll never work) Are leaders who agree with you capable of coming up with smarter tactics?

@StateDept @statedeptspox To address the problem at its source. What is the source of the immigration problem?
24AheadDotCom_'s avatar
From @24aheaddotcom_
Two major factors are Big Business & Democratic Party leaders in the USA enabling illegal immigration. Ask Trump fans why he's not going after them. MT @marisa_mayorga [re State Dept pulling aid from Honduras etc] ...What is the source of the immigration problem?...
24AheadDotCom_'s avatar
From @24aheaddotcom_
Trump can't think that far ahead, but vulture capitalists can. But, the big issue is that Trump's latest ban will be rolled back when he's out of office. MT @Tagteam36069674 [Trump's Honduras etc aid ban] its almost like he is intentionally trying to have those countries crumble

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@BeckyBas3517: Trump skimming $1,005.60 is a huge issue & grounds for impeachment, @derekkravitz is right to obsess over it. As for how much Koch not opposing Trump was worth & what they got for it, that's why we need real journalists. Do you know of any?
