    Oregon has a huge surplus of legal cannabis โ€” more than its 4 million residents would ever be able to smoke.

    Lawmakers hope to tackle the issue with a bill curbing excess production and another seeking to establish markets to funnel excess weed into. https://t.co/ansyw2RPJC https://twitter.com/latimes/status/1143179554162450432?s=17

    Rejecting a request from Trump, a federal judge in Washington has cleared the way for nearly 200 Democrats in Congress to continue their lawsuit against him alleging that his private business violates the emoluments provision of the Constitution. https://t.co/Fyt6XIfvg8 https://twitter.com/kylegriffin1/status/1143568353195376640?s=17

  4. I got 2 dozen candy apples ordered for my little sweetie pies for the 4th of July. Am I going to far?

    Can you tweet towards the main Democratic Candidates:

    Trump/Pence 2020:
    The cruelty is the point

    EVERY Democratic Candidate needs to be saying this on tv, 24/7/365

    About the Erase College Debt Planโ€ฆanother way of looking at it:

    *raises hand*…because this whole erase college debt plan is a lowkey reparations plan for middle to upper class white people.

    Black folks BEEN borrowing to go to college for decades because we always had less resources to go to college debt free. I can’t even think of anyone unless it was a full scholarship plus stipend, who went to college with their parents paying for it completely out of pocket. But the cost of tuition at big time state schools which have less than 5% of minority students, like your Ohio State and Univ of Alabama and Oklahoma and USC – those schools tuition rates have risen astronomically and white students have had to borrow more and more to attend. Its not the Ivy League students that are doing the squawking about loans..its these white folks at the football and basketball juggernauts who now want their “free ride”. They don’t wanna talk K-12 public schools, they don’t wanna hear about community colleges and free junior college tuition because that’s beneath them. They don’t wanna hear about free technical training..NOPE..this is about their wanting to dump their debt so they can continue gentrifying up another neighborhood to push out black folks.

    @ElieNYC Tell your mom she is not alone. It was a very disturbing segment to watch. We, everyday people, are concerned about children who have been separated from their families. But, this congressman just wants to chalk it up to โ€œEveryone hates Trump.โ€ Unacceptable. ๐Ÿ’” https://twitter.com/jerryberrios/status/1143358693590781953?s=17

    @ElieNYC @chrislhayes @realDonaldTrump That segment was painful to watch. Simply painful. The representative saying that he didn’t believe reports because he has seen different camps at an entirely different time? I mean, how do you even have a discussion with that? It was ludicrous. https://twitter.com/lynnhmedcalf/status/1143359230948155392?s=17

    Had a conversation with my mom after she saw @chrislhayes basically pleading with that goddamn Republican to end the suffering of children at the hands of this administration.
    People with voice and opportunity are saying the things. These @realDonaldTrump people just donโ€™t care. https://twitter.com/ElieNYC/status/1143354611845214210?s=17

    Full Boar Socialism (@JesseLaGreca) Tweeted:
    Fuck bipartisanship

    I can’t see eye to eye with someone who can justify migrant concentration camps because reasons

    Reduce this GOP to ashes in histories waste bin and I can maybe bipartisan with a sane party that replaces them https://twitter.com/JesseLaGreca/status/1143365418016526336?s=17

    One part of America is horrified.
    The other part is spending their time trying to find justifications.

    There is NO compromise.๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ 


  15. Good morning, everyone!

    The sweetest thing this morning is daughter, Jason and Carson calling me and singing “Happy birthday” and Carson saying “happy birthday oh yeah”! Just too much cuteness!

    Big news: SCOTUS is taking up the ACA risk corridors case. GOP’s decision to stymie that program arguably did the most damage to the ACA marketplaces. https://t.co/VeMRcd5MYn

    Tbh Idk why Twitter spent so much time debating canceling student debt, a policy we all know isnโ€™t going to happen. We might as well debate the merits of every American getting a free 250k house and two cars. Huge disconnect between Twitter and whatโ€™s politically feasible https://twitter.com/marcushjohnson/status/1143461075582668802?s=17

    Senator Mazie Hirono (@maziehirono) Tweeted:
    Trip to Mar-a-Lago for 1 president = $3.4 million = Toothbrush, Toothpaste, and Soap for 2.7 million kids.

    With @realDonaldTrump, the cruelty is the point. https://twitter.com/maziehirono/status/1143247408161271808?s=17

  19. rikyrah says:

    I have become obsessed with the $775 PER DAY that these criminals are charging. THAT should be in every conversation about this. It should be brought up anytime you speak about the Concentration Camps.
    ” They’re charging $775 PER DAY, and the government is arguing that they can’t provide SOAP, TOOTHPASTE, CLEAN DIAPERS FOR BABIES AND A BED FOR THEM TO SLEEP?”

    NEVER don’t speak about this and NOT bring up the $775 PER DAY.

    1. I believe that the number of deaths has been lowballed.
    2. Itโ€™s about to turn hot hot hot in Texas.
    3. More are sure to die because of the heat and the horrendous conditions.
    4. I am waiting for mass graves to be revealed.
