Havenโ€™t been hearing much about South Dakota lately.

Itโ€™s almost like #freedom and self-responsibility was the answer all along.

Shhhhhh! Donโ€™t tell anyone that the American experiment on self-governance works, when we let it. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Many executive orders coming on Wed.: unilateral decisions on impt. issues. Same thing happened 4 yrs ago-- & in 2001, 2009. #POTUS not meant 2 be this powerful. We've decimated #Constitution's checks & balances/separation of pwrs, then wonder why pres'l elections so contentious.

We can disagree. It doesn't mean we're wishing death on person standing next to us in grocery store. Our challenge: How do we refocus, remember that we are fellow Americans facing a common challenge, not biological weapons waiting to explode on each other? /3 &end #COVID19

Your neighbor must wear a #mask to protect you. Etc. Thus, if yr neighbor happens to disagree w/you on the best approach to #COVID19, then that disagreement is no longer simple disagreement. Some will see it as a death wish. None of this is good or healthy in a free country. /2

National emergencies often bring unity, as happened post-9/11. Why didn't #COVID bring unity? Consider: We should have been focused on a common enemy ( #COVID19). Instead, govt's chosen approach made our neighbors our enemy. Yr neighbor might make you sick..... /1 #CovidVaccine

#TDIH (1942) American film actress Carole Lombard is tragically killed in a plane crash as she returns from a WWII War Bonds tour. Her trip had been part of Hollywoodโ€™s early response to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. #history #America #WWII

#TDIH (1788) Fisher Ames addresses the MA state ratifying convention, then considering the #Constitution. โ€œA democracy is a volcano, wch conceals the fiery materials of its own destruction,โ€ Ames said. Yet too many today misunderstand his meaning. #history

The quest for power is ugly.

Both sides think Iโ€™m talking about the other, which says a lot about our world right now.

At times like these, we need the checks &balances in our govt more than ever โ€” all three branches, yes, but ALSO state legis vs feds.

#TDIH (1741) Benedict Arnold is born. You know him as a traitor to the American cause, but do you know the rest of his story? Arnold started off as someone that you might admire. #history #throwback #thursdaymorning #facts

#TDIH (1982) A Boeing 737 crashes into the Potomac. It was a day of unnecessary tragedyโ€”but also one of astonishing heroism.

Determined. Kind. Taking risks, even for a stranger. THIS is the America we know and love. #ProudToBeAnAmerican

"Nothing I was trained for prepared me for frail elderly to beg me to find their grandkids or die alone. To me
this is the biggest violation of human rights and I cry about it after every shift"

@AJKayWriter @dockaurG

#Freedom isnโ€™t just a word we say. Itโ€™s not selfish, as some imply. Itโ€™s the absolute best, most dignified path forward.

#COVID is not the only evil to avoid. Everyone has different priorities. We can think for ourselves; make our own choices. Thought we decided THAT in 1776.

THREAD: I havenโ€™t said much about the #ElectoralCollege this week, despite two decades of studying the system, because I needed time to formulate my thoughts on some of what we are watching. /1
