Populism Can Kill You

1/ "Before the introduction of the measles vaccine in 1963, an estimated 3 – 4 MILLION patients contracted the disease each year in the United States — and about 400 to 500 died"
We ALL need to stand up to politicians who lie. Because it WILL kill us…. https://t.co/WLlZ2rdhx2

2/….and, as a doctor married to an infectious disease doctor, I also feel the need to insert the following: STOP PERPETUATING THE LIE THAT ANTIBIOTICS CAN FIX EVERYTHING!!! THEY DO *NOT* WORK AGAINST VIRUSES! & USING THEM INAPPROPRIATELY SPREADS DRUG RESISTANCE & DISEASE!

Populism can be a hazard to your health: @Bill_Zedler just spreads the medical disinformation which his base and GOP supporters want to hear, even if that can kill some of them and their children. That is evil.

Italy: A Little Help from Putin

Huge story breaking in Italy. Putin agreed to a request from Lega Nord leader Matteo Salvini to covertly finance his Euro election campaign. The plan was to conceal the payment behind an apparently normal business deal. Sound familiar?

Tucker Carlson Call One of His Guests A “Tiny Brain…moron”

1/ Here’s the interview that @TuckerCarlson and Fox News didn’t want you to see. I chose to release it, because I think we should keep talking about the corrupting influence of money in politics. It also shows how angry elites can get if you do that. https://t.co/hs1474MJNM

2/ I stand behind what I said, but there’s one thing I should have done better. When Carlson asked me how he’s being influenced by Big Business and tax-avoiding billionaires, I should have quoted Noam Chomsky.

— Rutger Bregman (@rcbregman) February 20, 2019

3/ Years ago, when he was asked a similar question, Chomsky replied: ‘I’m sure you believe everything you’re saying. But what I’m saying is that if you believe something different, you wouldn’t be sitting where you’re sitting.’

"Have you guys ever seen the show???"

Tucker always does that at the beginning. He sits there and agrees with them on a few points, and just eggs them on until they say something ridiculous. Bregman wasn't going to wait for the trap.

Smart guy.

Trains Are Evil

Things which make Trump happy:

California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars. They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!
