One thing I’ll never get over in this country is how some folks – who tend to be white – can walk about in combat gear carrying long guns, perfectly legally, but non-white folks can be shot while the cops who shot them, and their supporters, argue if there was a gun *nearby* 🤔

For most of Arizona, it’s running a little bit cooler than it was last night at this time, with Phoenix about 5 degrees cooler. Low temperatures will fall into the 50s for many of us tonight. #azwx #cawx pic.twitter.com/9XzIkZX5TN

I happen to believe that when you talk about infrastructure, you’ve got to talk about human infrastructure. Education. Health care. Childcare. Good wages. Affordable prescriptions. That’s human infrastructure. Yes, we have got to rebuild this country’s crumbling infrastructure. pic.twitter.com/Fau7ProCdo

The chair of the Fed is talking about including the homeless in policymaking. Ask them what would be most helpful to them and don’t act surprised when they say “money.”

—We spend $ 107,575,000,000 more on police than on public housing.
—15 states spend $ 27,000 more per person in prison than they do per student.
How about instead of pouring more funds into our brutal systems of policing and mass incarceration, we invest in communities?

Clear thread on what we should (an unlikely lasting upward shift in inflation expectations), and shouldn’t (temporary higher inflation/price levels), worry about inflation wise. But short it is not – so you might as well read the full blog https://t.co/E6dzPYGkDv https://t.co/3WTRfZAz4S

Watched Nomadland last night and it made me think about the difference between the words “lonely” and “solitary” and how not everyone who is homeless actually wants a house, but what everyone does need is income to afford whatever way of living they prefer, stationary or nomadic.

I want you to think about an America in which we have an explosion of union membership. That’s our job — together, we must grow the trade union movement all over this country. The only way we deliver real power to working people is by rebuilding the trade union movement.
