A lot of people who struggle with imposter syndrome haven’t realized yet that what they’re actually competing with is intergenerational wealth. Be patient and kind to yourself.

Last night the President engaged in what is widely being recognized as an act of war against Iran, one that now risks the lives of millions of innocent people. Now is the moment to prevent war & protect innocent people - the question for many is how, publicly & Congressionally:

War is a class conflict, too. The rich and powerful who open war escape the consequences of their decisions. It’s not their children sent into the jaws of violence. It is often the vulnerable, the poor, & working people -who had little to no say in conflict - who pay the price.

Happy 1 year anniversary to dunking on haters and advocating for peace✌🏽

This is a war crime. Threatening to target and kill innocent families, women and children - which is what you’re doing by targeting cultural sites - does not make you a “tough guy.” It does not make you “strategic.” It makes you a monster.

Remember when everyone mocked us for saying that fighting climate change is going to take a WWII-scale mobilization? Well, it’s already starting to happen. The question is: will we mobilize reactively to destruction, or will we act proactively for prevention? #GreenNewDeal 

How about “I am a Republican and will be voting Democrat because Trump is an authoritarian threat to our collective wellbeing.”

The people who tell you we DO have war money but DON’T have healthcare money, tuition-free money, infrastructure money, or Green New Deal money are playing games with you.

Trump’s “imminent threat” is the new “WMD”: there’s no evidence given for either.

The Dow soars, wages don’t. Inequality in a nutshell.
