I bet then that Bryan here is on board for expanding and increasing the budget for the SNAP program.

Because hunger is an act of violence, against and humanity.

Right Bryan?


And, of course, he supports full funding and expansion of ACA or even moving to Medicaid for All because allowing other human beings to suffer is, you know, actual violence.

Bryan also supports the expansion of early childhood development programs, Headstart, and WIC.

Bryan knows endemic racism within law enforcement communities has created a dangerous situation for everyone and supports mandatory regular mental health support for all Officers, increased training, a "weapons as last support" policy.

And he demands that police forces racially reflect the demographics of the communities they support.

He demands that officers be held more accountable when they commit crimes against the community.

#BlackLivesMatter & the execution of so many is, again, actual violence.

Bryan demands that the Trump adminstration immediately disbands @ICEgov and that criminal charges be brought against anyone who supported, promoted, or carried out the policy of family separations.

Because kidnapping is a form of violence.

Bryan strongly opposes the @NRA because human life holds more sanctity than any organization, law, or thing.

He supports a ban on all assault weapons, mental health clearance, and closing all related loopholes.

Gun violence is also, well, violence.

Hate speech and hate crimes are speech / violence used against another because of the accidentt of biology and therefore are a particular threat to civilized society.

Those who commit these acts are terrorists, and their crimes should be ajudicated as such.

Bryan demands Trump restores our support of the Paris Climate Accords, restores every environmental & safety regulation he reversed, and that by Executive Order acknowledges that climate change is real.

Environmental destruction is violence against everything.

Bryan believes that all life is precious and knows that the death penalty in the US has been disproportionately used against minority populations throughout our history. He knows that there are proven cases of executions being carried out against the innocent.

Bryan's deeply held moral beliefs reuire him to spend an equal amount of time & effort demanding an immediate end to all executions while he fights so hard to overturn Roe V. Wade.

Bryan is truly ProLife & believes that it is our shared duty to support life at every stage.
He knows that if it is our duty to force all pregnancies to continue to term that we must also then provide every immediate medical and basic financial need of the mother for the course of her pregnancy and until the child reaches the age of five years.

Because we are charged with protecting and valuing all life, particularly that of the innocent, Bryan demands that social support for our citizens be available to all who need it, and at every stage.

Right Bryan?

Because consistentcy matters.

Right Bryan?

Because Bryan is not a lyinhypocrite like so many anti-choice activists he believes it is essential that we prove that we realize that our responsibility is not just to the child, but to the mother too.

Overturning Roe v Wade will alter our economy and demographics.

Our population will rise and the poor will get poorer. Bryan understands this fact and promises that women, all women, forced to carry a pregnancy to term against their will, will become the financial responsibility of State for whom special protections must be extended.

If, however, Bryan disagrees with this analysis it will prove him to be nothing more than your average misogynistic hypocritical zealot who uses their religious dogmas to assert control over the lives of women and minorities.

And to pretend those controls are based on morality.
Pretending to care about life until the moment of first breath and then ignoring, denying, or cruelly working against the interest of the life you just forced into existence is not pro-Life. it's pro-passive / aggressive inhumanist.

We must #StopKavanaugh or Bryan's version wins

Finally slept.

For a few days when I'd sleep I was either having nightmares about #Kavanaugh or, and this was a first, having nightmares about having nightmares about #Kavanaugh.

My poor puppies didn't know what the hell was going on...


When people invoke platitudes like this it is usually done in order to being hope, to assert the positive aspects of what's ahead.

Not today.

There is nothing positive about this. We played the Super Bowl and we lost, but there is no rematch.

Worse, one of the players for the other team is suddenly a fucking umpire and wants to review the tapes of all previous games and change some of the calls made by other, better umpires from games we had already won in the past.

It doesn't make sense.

None of it.

I won't be lectured about majorities or electoral politics on the day #BrettKavanaugh was confirmed to #SCOTUS with the help of a goddamned Democrat.

I don't care where he's from or the demographics of his state. I don't care about any of that bullshit.

He deserves some fire under his feet on the day he voted FOR a fucking lying racist rapist who is probably going to overturn ROE v. WADE and a host of other important pieces of legislation.

He could have called in sick.

He could have abstained.

He could have stood on the Senate floor and said "I am casting this vote because my constituents have asked me to and I am their representative, but I personally strongly oppose this nominee, and support Professor Ford.

Instead he basically endorsed Collins speech.

Let it be our promise to every future life that is destroyed, changed, or affected by a Justice #Kavanaugh that we will make it a priority to see Sasse, Manchin, and Collins suffer for their vote today.

They must lose their Senate seats, and be reminded everyday why.


If we can't manage to focus long enough to carry through on our threats to our elected leaders who betray us then there will never be a reason to fear us. There will never be a reason to reconsider a decision or vote.

And maybe no mistake, @SenatorCollins must be made an example of, if only because so much focus was placed on her and her decision making process.

But also because of that poisonous victim blaming/ shaming speech she delivered yesterday.

There is no way to sugarcoat how bad things just got, and if there was, we shouldn't. This is a loss that will haunt this nation for decades.

The confirmation of #BrettKavanaugh has managed to confirm more than just a man, for many, its confirmed our worst fears.

It has confirmed that the @GOP is the most corrupt ruling party at the federal level in our nation's history. That they will do anything and everything to protect itself, including putting the survival of our Republic itself at risk.

Its confirmed that the real decisions are made before the questions are even formally presented, and that they really do not care what our opinions of those decisions will be.

And it has also confirmed that Donald Trump has a lot more power than we imagined.

If you want to live in a nation that is "led" by a man who would mock someone who was the victim of a violent sexual assault then we are very different people.

Trump's behavior today was that of a playground bully. They were the words that a bully utters and then laughs.

The bully imagines, and may even hear, the world laughing with him, but the chuckles are only from his hangers-on and those hoping to impress the bully.

The rest of the world only turns its head to look away. They hope that someone, anyone, will intervene.

They almost always get away with it, though, bullies.

And Trump will likely get away with this, like always.

#ChristineBlaseyFord passed a lie detector test on the day of her grandmother's funeral. No one non-partisan or credible has questioned her credibility.

They told us @HillaryClinton was just as bad as @realDonaldTrump.

Hell, @SusanSarandon said she was worse.

She should really never open her mouth about politics again, ever.


U.S. to partners of U.N. LGBTQ staff: Get married, or get out… via @NBCNews
That anyone ever fell for that ridiculous lie is beyond disgraceful.

Even if Clinton were guilty of the types of corruption they claimed she was she would still not be comparable in this way to Donald Trump.

Not even close.

But she's clearly not.

As the nation braces itself for the @GOP's latest betrayal in the runup to the #BrettKavanaugh confirmation vote, it is becoming clearer that even those we once believed retained some recognizably moral standards, simply don't.

@SenatorCollins, @lisamurkowski--we see you.
