It began one day when she found an exhausted bee lying on her doorstep. After offering it a little honey in a spoon, the bee lapped at it and soon awoke to fly away.

She began to carry honey for tired bees, and scattered flower seeds wherever she could. Soon, there were always flowers where she went, and humming bees enjoying them.

Misfortune stopped crossing her path shortly after. The bees made certain of that. Their queen recognised a kindred spirit.

Tired of people trying to end your health insurance? Or those that insist COVID-19 will just go away?

Tired of not being able to pay your living expenses on a one-time $1200 check and watching your unemployment disappear while your job isn't available and you don't have childcare if you're a parent, anyway?

Books will be written about how many Americans died while waiting for the next president.

Trump is Herbert Hoover ("prosperity is just around the corner") without the cabinet experience and the record of humanitarian famine relief. Hoover got Republicans banned from the White House for five terms. May history repeat itself on that.

As the coronavirus crisis spins out of control, Trump issues directives — but still no clear plan. #FindSomethingNew

Conservatives have time and time again proven themselves to have no hesitation or doubts about harming marginalized groups. Their blatant disregard for the mental well-being of transgender youth is disgusting. It's time to vote them all out of office. #VoteBlue #Biden2020

Well, Trump managed to get his big travel ban after all: against us.

And after all of this, the Republican Party wants to give this man four more years. Seriously.

Vote EVERY SINGLE REPUBLICAN you can out of office. #Elections2020

Peak Steve Mnuchin for you. This is what happens when you put a member of the Trump administration in charge of stimulus money with no oversight. (Democrats added oversight but the GOP took it out.)

Much more importantly, Republicans sent a trillion (1,000 billions) to their friends, and nobody even knows where exactly the money went.  

Treasury sent more than 1 million coronavirus stimulus payments to dead people, congressional watchdog finds:

Police reforms can't wait.

You can tell your own mayor that you want them to happen right now.

Easy script: I’m calling to urge the mayor to pledge to and enact the #8CantWait Use of Force policies. I know our area would benefit from these policies.

The #8CantWait policies are simple, common-sense, and would make our community safer.

That 38% may not change, but that leaves 62% of us who can get him out. He's losing Independents voters and he's unlikely to get them back.

Register to vote, check your registration, remind your friends and family to do so, and volunteer or donate and help get organized.

This administration needs to end. #MondayMotivation

This is just one family.

We must, as white people, confront racism wherever and whenever we see it. Our own discomfort needs to be cast aside.

It is our responsibility. We are the cause.
