Who's going to tell Mark Robinson that there are gay and transgender kids?

Someone like this should never have been elected to public office in the first place. You cannot represent your constituents with these bigoted views. He should resign.

NC Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson criticized over anti-LGBT views -

According to the latest statistics ...

Texas

4.14 million people contracted Covid

5,448 in the last 24 hours

68,047 people have DIED

These are only estimates.

Abbott is an F'ing Moron. His day of
reckoning will come.

I have never seen a more reckless and cynical political move as the one put forth by Republican leaders under Trump's misguidance that getting vaccinated would help the Biden administration and they want to see him fail so that they can get voted back into office and not lose the seats they have.

Hundreds of thousands of Americans dying and/or sick for the long term needlessly for a misguided political cause. It is immoral, unconscionable, and very cynical to come up with such a diabolical scheme to prevent your opponent from being a successful President. On top of the fact that banning mandates though executive order is exactly what Republicans say they're against.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott bans any COVID-19 vaccine mandates — including for private employers-

Good. People who want to purposefully engender the public shouldn't be able to play professional sports. Nobody is going to want them on teams. Teams don't want the liability.

I'm not an NBA fan, nor am I a New Yorker, but I have been paying attention to this story.

The NBA does not have a vaccination mandate, but NYC does, so Kyrie Irving can't play home games if he doesn't get vaccinated. The Brooklyn Nets have gone one step further, and he won't be playing or practicing with the team at all "until he can be a full participant." The team hasn't come out and said this is about his vaccination status, but that's the implied meaning.

No one in the sane states wants to work with someone unvaccinated. Basketball is played indoors, where you're breathing hard and up in people's faces.

He could ask for a trade to Dallas to live under idiot governor Abbott's rule, but then he'd work for Mavericks' owner Mark Cuban, who is also a vocal believer in vaccines.

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael Regan says he’s willing to wield broad regulatory power to enact President Biden’s climate agenda if Congress fails to pass meaningful climate legislation. 

Regan says his agency will issue a robust greenhouse gas rule for power plants, a stringent methane rule for oil and gas infrastructure, and sweeping emissions standards for new cars, regardless of Congress's actions.

Analysis | EPA head says he'll act on climate even if Congress doesn't.

“They don’t tell us when people have been in the building sick,” one Department of Revenue employee wrote. “We have to hear through the grapevine that someone is in the hospital or dead. If we complain, we are offered demotions.”

WTF, Florida? Do not let DeathSantis bully you!

@TonyStark I like the updated slogan. I lived in Virginia back when it was still a crime to be gay. People had some things to say about the old "Virginia is for lovers" slogan.

Today I'd go with "Virginia is for lovers of democracy." :va:

For :pa: elections:

Get on the phones! ☎️

PA has really, really important School Board and State Supreme Court elections on November 2nd. They need help with mail-in ballot chase phone calls. Info below.

Wednesdays (10/13, 10/20, and 10/27) from 4-6 or 6-8 PM: It’s time for ballot chase! These calls are always really rewarding. We’ll be calling Democrats to be sure they have the information they need to return their ballots properly and on time. We need your help getting this vital information to as many voters as possible.

Republicans in the state are desperate to try and wrongly use the pandemic and what they perceive as Democratic voter apathy to try and take over school boards and court seats. We have to stop them. Thanks for helping and spreading the word. :CTA:

2021 is on pace to be among the most active and costliest years for these disasters, which are becoming more frequent.

The science is unequivocal, extensively acknowledged and widely supported. Climate change is the defining crisis of our time ...

Already, 18 weather disasters costing at least $1 billion each have hit the U.S. this year.

Good morning!

I just adopted 5 more letters for from . Why? Because they have a lot left. And they’re only available through Saturday, October 16, when they need to be mailed. And this election is WAY too close.

There can't be a Republican governor for Virginia and we need to hold and flip as many legislative seats for Democrats as possible.

We know that Vote Forward letters work to boost voter turnout. They still need to reach many more VA voters, so please consider writing even 5 if you can. :CTA: :va: :gotv:

The most significant change that could come out of #COP26 is to decouple economic growth from sustainability & surviving climate change.
As long as there is a focus on perpetual growth we can't have sustainability.
We have finite resources that are nearing collapse due to global governments obsession with economic growth.
We need to think in terms of reduction and transition, not whether we can make profits.
The G20 have led us down this path. They cannot conceive an alternative.
