I'm not a veteran. I haven't served. But if I were, and wanted to send a message that the tools, equipment and personnel that defended my life and country aren't toys to be paraded around for a KIA/POW-mocking toddler's entertainment, here's how I'd do it. #1MillionVeteransMarch
I wouldn't look for cash, I wouldn't look for Twitter verification, and I wouldn't look for sponsorship. I'd look long and hard for a small number of well-known and well-respected veterans with name recognition who happened to share my view. Sign them on. #1MillionVeteransMarch
I'd then crowdsource as many personal statements as possible, from the people who have used the equipment that Donald wants to parade around in November for his own entertainment. From the people who stood by those personnel in battle. When, where and how. #1MillionVeteransMarch
Then I'd hire one guy for $0 (hint) to buy a domain, get a site set up, publish the whole thing on the internet, and coordinate to blast it all over Twitter. The site would be a static site on AWS, equipped to scale out to any amount of traffic necessary. #1MillionVeteransMarch
Then I'd show up, in person and en masse, and turn Donald's little reality television show into a protest march. And tell him to fuck himself. #1MillionVeteransMarch
N.B. And maybe one more thing, just because @realDonaldTrump is an empty vessel, actually pretty predictable psychologically, and has been obsessed with crowd sizes ever since nobody showed up to his inauguration: #VeteransMarch. Deprives him of ammo and does the noun/verb thing.

For the next 24 hours I will be posting nothing but clips of the Gowdy/Goodlatte Congressional Shitshow™ that occurred today. I would like to sincerely, honestly, with all my heart thank @cspan for bringing me this bounty of absurdist comedy; we are blessed. #HouseOfRepresentin'
We'll start slow with a bit of selective editing. Hey @RepGoodlatte, you should come to our open-mic night; that last one-liner wasn't bad.

Politically-motivated fishing expeditions, show prosecutions by local authorities, often performed purely to discredit or shame the dissident: leading indicators of end-stage corruption. When process is abused as a blunt instrument of punishment, the social contract is broken.
Mark my words: they will drop the charges before trial. Probably immediately before trial. This type of abuse of process is designed to consume the resources, time, and energy of a political opponent in bad faith by subjecting them to arrest and the legal process.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the disinformation ring responsible for @aItcybercommand – a sans-serif capital I, instead of a lowercase L. These idiots really thought they were clever. I wasn't lying. More in-thread over the next hour.
Let's get this party started. Cc: @AITcybercommand. Note the sans-serif capital I instead of a lowercase L. @Twitter: You have a design issue with real-world consequences; where is the team?
More content from a moron – @AITcybercommand – who thought blocking would shield him. Hint: you're an idiot, it doesn't,

No single agency should be tasked with handling asylum/trauma/flight cases along with international criminal drug cartels. #BreakTheICE
After the tragic events of September 11th, 2001, "the functions and jurisdictions of several border and revenue enforcement agencies were combined and consolidated into U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement". Maybe it's time to restore normal order. #BreakTheICE
Maybe an organization overseeing investigations into transnational child abuse and human trafficking shouldn't be tasked with detaining and abusing children on American soil. #BreakTheICE

Hot take: "abolish ICE" is a losing and un-nuanced strategy. The agency does deal with organized crime quite often. IMO: break ICE into two independent agencies, and place asylum and alleged misdemeanor crossing-only offenses under the exclusive purview of a different agency.
And, I mean, come the hell on, the slogan writes itself: "Break the ICE".
