COWARDLY CURCIO: “ANOTHER BROKEN PROMISE TO THE VICTIMS.” — Despite promises on the house floor, Rep. Michael Curcio & the TN GOP killed Rep. Gloria Johnson’s bill to Expel admitted child sex abuser David Byrd. Curcio left the room when Rep. Bo Mitchell gave the bill a motion, but no second came. Curcio is a liar & coward.??Here’s proof.??Pass it on. Non-Facebook Link
Yesterday In education committee where admitted child sex abuser Rep. David Byrd is a member, Rep. Gloria Johnson wore a mask that says “support victims of sexual assault” ????
MINNESOTA’S FURY: After police murdered George Floyd in Minnesota, protests have turned into looting and vandalism. Violence is never encouraged, but these outbursts are not unmotivated, and as MLK said: “Riots are the language of the unheard”. The officer was fired but still walks free… meanwhile Minnesota State Police arrested CNN reporter Omar Jimenez on the air for reporting on the protests. Non-Facebook Link
Trump did his part to enflame things with this (racist) tweet, which was flagged by twitter for “glorifying violence”:
Don Lemon’s accurate take on Trump enflaming the situation: “No one wants to hear from the man who wanted the death penalty to come back for the Central Park Five… from the guy who says Obama wasn’t born here.. who says there were fine people on both sides…” ?? Non-Facebook Link
MLK’s daughter Bernice puts it very well:
–The president’s new fascist “online censorship” executive order (that will likely amount to nothing but betrays how sensitive and out of control he is, done in reaction to Twitter fact-checking his endless firehose of lies) reads in part: “Increased scrutiny of users based on the other users they choose to follow, or their interactions with other users” ?
–PANDEMIC LESSON: Fact-Checking IS NOT CENSORSHIP
–While he cries about being fact-checked, he RT’s videos calling for Democrats to be murdered… Class act all the way. But Obama is the divisive one, right?
–We asked TN GOP Rep. Bruce Griffey about his social media censorship bill here in TN and why he thinks protestors of the KKK Grand Wizard bust at the TN State Capitol should be “subject to arrest”. Non-Facebook Link
-With 100,000 Americans dead, the TN HOUSE GOP Caucus chair Rep. Jeremy Faison is complaining the seating arrangements have changed. ?? ? ???Not a great speller either. #SocialDistanacingSavesLives
-When the TN GOP wasn’t persecuting LGBTQ folks or blocking student-athlete’s ability to earn?from their name & Likeness — they were passing a permitless carry bill opposed by law enforcement that Gov. Lee was against as a candidate… but now supports. ????
–As Republicans spread the myth that vote-by-mail means fraud… they themselves have no problem doing it. What’s Trump’s press secretary has voted by mail 11 times since 2010.
–The Chattanooga Chief of Police speaking out about the murder of #GeorgeFloyd ????We need more police to be willing to speak out about things like this.
-MUST-READ from Frank Garrison on the horrible business decision Gov. Lee & the TN GOP make rejecting $1 BILLION in Medicaid Expansion?yearly while our rural hospitals close, our state budget suffers, and we lead ?? in medical bankruptcies.
–State-Sponsored Travel to Tennessee has been BANNED By At Least One State Because of Anti-LGBTQ Policies ?️? The cost of hate.
-RHEA COUNTY Farm announces “entire workforce has tested positive… and are still working” ????
-WATCH the TN GOP Kill a bill to allow STUDENT-ATHLETES to earn?from their Name & Likeness from Rep. Parkinson & Towns. Non-Facebook Link
–CARTOON OF THE DAY By @deAdder
-WATCH: “Delete the voucher program… it’s ILLEGAL… we’re wasting the courts’ time with something we know is wrong.” – Bo Mitchell’s bill to kill Lee’s UNCONSTITUTIONAL” private school vouchers fails for lack of a second. (Left it hanging: Byrd, Moody, Dunn, White, Deberry, Cochran) Non-Facebook Link
-??In the run-up to COVID TN GOP Rep. Phil Roe bought STOCK in ZOOM & VACCINE/DRUG companies, DUMPED stocks in cruise lines and other companies that would be harmed. Tennessee, it seem we have our very own Senator Burr.
–PANDEMIC LESSON: THE STOCK MARKET IS NOT THE ECONOMY???
