A new day, a new friend 🐧✨
Just a penguin dance throwback from the before times 🐧🐥
Today in the NYT there’s a story about how imagining activities & scenes to look forward to can help us with difficult times during the pandemic.
I’m looking forward to big dinners w/ friends & live shows. How about you?
.@PramilaJayapal was in the House gallery Wednesday afternoon because Covid-19 restrictions meant that only so many members of Congress could be on the House floor at one time. She talks about what happened next in today's episode of Deconstructed /1
Replying to @PramilaJayapal: I will not stop talking about how I was ready to fight for my life.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez on Congress members who may be sympathetic towards the rioter carrying Confederate flag: "The Confederacy were a band of enemies and traitors to the U.S. ... if they find more sympathy with them, then perhaps they shouldn't be serving in the U.S. Congress."
The way you can tell if a company actually means it is if they say they aren’t giving to any members PERIOD or at bare minimum this *cycle.*
Reminder you can also elect members who don’t take corporate money at all, & are funded by small dollar donations from everyday people 😉
CONFIRMED: @pfizer will suspend donations to any of the Congresspeople who voted against certifying the vote last week for at least six months.
The issue w this is that donations are not done by months, they’re measured by election cycles.
It’s pretty normal for a member to not get a max-out check in the first 6 mos. This announcement doesn’t mean much bc they can still max out to ppl who undermined the election in July
I will not stop talking about how I was ready to fight for my life.
I will not stop talking about hearing the insurrectionists on the other side of the door.
I will not stop talking about being forced into a superspreader event.
Hold EVERYONE involved fully accountable.
