Tuesday Twitter roundup

Republicans got a hard lesson last night: "token" bi-partisanship (a handful of Dems) isn't going to cut it, they need to craft legislation that both sides can agree on.

Isn't it strange that 34% closely matches the percent of Tea Party nut-jobs, die-hard Trumpers, and nearly every other insane group of people? No, it's not strange at all. 1/3 of Americans are incapable of even a shred of empathy.

Big surprise, one of Art Pope's people pursues a false narrative.

Right, because protecting children from a deadly virus is the same thing as locking them up in cages. You're a special kind of idiot, aren't you?

Just because his criminal case was dismissed, it doesn't mean he didn't violate procedure, much less the trust of the public. Dude has no business being in uniform.

They never should have taken that away in the first place. And SEANC should have been screaming about this since 2017.

For future reference, when you feel the urge to drop "communist" into a complaint about an advocacy organization, go get some fresh air. Because your brain is starved for oxygen.

You misspelled "voter suppression," jackass.

Yes, it's Keith Kidwell. And it's chock full of secessionist language, which should surprise exactly nobody.

I support this 100%.

Corruption is a huge problem, but so is the rate of charter school failures:

The report crunched nearly two decades of data and discovered that more than one in four charter schools closed after just five years. That’s less than the number of years it takes for a typical kindergartner to complete elementary school.

After ten years, 40 percent of charter schools were shuttered; after fifteen years, that rate rose to about 50 percent.

And the number of students impacted by charter school closures is considerable. According to the report, from 1999 to 2017, more than 867,000 students were displaced when their charter school closed. That figure is likely closer to one million students, if data from charter school closures between 1995 and 1998, as well as 2017 to 2019, were added to the analysis.

No doubt there is a correlation between corruption and the closure of some of those schools. But it's more likely the formula itself is faulty.

You are not wrong, Rodney. Such a bill would never make it out of a single committee, much less be presented for a floor vote in either house. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

On that frustrating note, here's your Onion:

Tee-hee... :)
