  1. We are #1 just overtook China. this is a failure of leadership. MAGA!
  2. Is this a whoops I assumed she was uneducated and had no prior political experience because right wing media said so. now let me change tactics.
  3. A little fox told him. btw people seem to not know of her background ———— Ocasio-Cortez attended Yorktown High School, graduating in 2007.[16] In high school and college, Ocasio-Cortez went by the name of "Sandy".[17] She came in second in the Microbiology category of the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair with a microbiology research project on the effect of antioxidants on the lifespan of the nematode C. elegans.[18] In a show of appreciation for her efforts, the MIT Lincoln Laboratory named a small asteroid after her: 23238 Ocasio-Cortez.[19][20] In high school, she took part in the National Hispanic Institute's Lorenzo de Zavala (LDZ) Youth Legislative Session. She later became the LDZ Secretary of State while she attended Boston University. Ocasio-Cortez had a John F. Lopez Fellowship.[21] In 2008, while Ocasio-Cortez was a sophomore at Boston University, her father died of lung cancer.[22][23] Ocasio-Cortez became involved in a lengthy probate battle to settle his estate. She has said that the experience helped her learn "firsthand how attorneys appointed by the court to administer an estate can enrich themselves at the expense of the families struggling to make sense of the bureaucracy."[24] During college, Ocasio-Cortez served as an intern for U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy, in his section on foreign affairs and immigration issues.[25] She recalled, "I was the only Spanish speaker, and as a result, as basically a kid—a 19-, 20-year-old kid—whenever a frantic call would come into the office because someone is looking for their husband because they have been snatched off the street by ICE, I was the one that had to pick up that phone. I was the one that had to help that person navigate that system."[25] Ocasio-Cortez graduated cum laude from Boston University College of Arts and Sciences with a BA in 2011, majoring in international relations and economics.[
  4. W bush lost the popular vote and got To 90%.
  5. In an effort to convince skeptics of their importance, cultural institutions have tried to calculate their economic impact in measurable figures that legislators — even those who don’t attend the ballet or the theater regularly — can appreciate. One such statistic: There were 5.1 million jobs associated with arts and culture in 2017, according to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. In Seattle, a group of about two dozen cultural institutions — including the Pacific Northwest Ballet and the Seattle Opera — added up their attendance in 2019 and compared it with the attendance at home games for the city’s football, baseball and soccer teams. (Their calculations showed about 3.2 million sports fans, compared with 8.7 million arts attendees.) They planned to send the figures to Seattle City Council members to support a potential relief package for arts groups https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2020/03/24/arts/coronavirus-arts-bailout.amp.html
  6. Explain to me your anger in arts getting relief. You understand performances are cancelled and funds are need for to stay afloat.
  7. Honestly surprised Donald is rating this high but also it’s extremely low compared historical to crisis time presidencies
  8. Fauci stated two weeks national advisory WITH a statement that a very real possibility this will need extension. Trump is not supporting that. https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/mar/15/anthony-fauci-urges-coronavirus-national-shutdown/ On MSNBC’s “Meet the Press” Mr. Fauci endorsed a 14-day “national shutdown” to help slow down the virus. He explained that he has brought it up with the administration, which is generally open to his ideas. However, he warned that while its hard to predict exactly how long the virus will be a threat, the U.S. should prepare for this to last for several weeks or a few months.
  9. Leadership would support a sustained shutdown. Every medical expert states that a longer term one is needed to stop this. Local leadership has been doing shortterm shutdown but everyone knows it will need sustaining as more info comes in. Not one health expert would be advising Trump to signal a end in two weeks.
  10. My son is at home doing remote learning on his chromebook. He has friends that are staying with relatives as people work - I can imagine trying to get my sons grandmother to help him work a chromebook out. Tech only works when its supported at home with reliable internet and knowledge to help.
  11. having kids left behind because the parents had more pressing concerns will just widen gaps. Its going to be a heavy lift next year but all kids need to keep forward moving. Part of what will need stimulus long term is education supports will need to be put in to close learning gaps that widened during this time period.
  12. My kid will be fine (which is a true statement from me) is speaking from a point of privileged. We are in America and there is strong concern if kids will be getting fed properly with things shut down let alone not fall behind in education.
  13. Wow. Republicans relented and are allowing a little oversight on the half trillion corporate bailout
  14. Yes. Even better would be automated registration. right to vote is a constitution right.
