Finger of Death — As seawater freezes in the polar oceans, salt brine concentrates are expelled from the sea ice, creating a downward flow of dense, extremely cold and saline water with a lower freezing point than the surrounding water. When this plume comes into contact with the neighboring ocean water, its extremely cold temperature causes ice to instantly form around the flow. This creates a hollow stalactite, or icicle, referred to as a brinicle.

Time to choose. Trump or America? Because Trump will kill America if he stays.

Police in Flint Put Down Weapons and Join Protesters Over George Floyd Killing | News Break

It was a remarkable sight ... a cop puts down his baton and helmet and joins protesters in solidarity. It went down Saturday in Michigan's Flint Township, where Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson engaged protesters in the wake of George Floyd's brutal killing at the hands of rogue cops.

@IronMan @HeroesResist
This is sooooooo important.

Not only do these states need better representation, but we need to get Mitch McConnell out of the Senate Majority Leader position. Out!

Good morning.

Not only do we need to take the White House back for Democrats, but we need to flip the Senate, too.

The time is now to get involved with campaigns. You can donate. You can volunteer from home. You can participate in virtual events from home. You can talk to people you're in contact with.

We need to keep the seats we have and flip 4 of these. I think we can flip more than 4.

Pick one or more and start now. @HeroesResist

Here's a good reason why we need to fight hard in every election:

The Wisconsin SCOTUS was 5-2 Conservative. Democrats flipped a seat in April and it's now 4-3.

We need to keep fighting. This is a shame for the good people of Wisconsin who keep voting for something better.

Don't take any elections for granted.

We need to be talking more about these seats. They're still important.

That said, it was a GOP-held seat for 25 years before Katie Hill won it in 2018. We can get it back in November along with some more seats in California if we keep working.

My community is doing an 'adopt a Senior' outreach to make-up for all the Senior year fun activities that the class of 2020 is missing out on.

Kiddo just got a care package from one of his old teachers, which included this tee shirt& I can't stop laughing.

It's been two months since our district shut the doors, with another month to go until graduation. I think the has a lock on the record, lol.

"Nervous about Trump's handling of COVID-19"? Ya think?

Here's a clue: I have recurring monthly donations to the Democratic Senatorial candidate in most of the at-risk states. So do a lot of people.

We're done with you. You brought us Trump and dismantled the rule of law and the country.

Say goodnight.

Leave it to Republicans to always make it harder for people to vote.

Wouldn’t it be nice if there were some kind of authority that could take charge to help out in cases of a real national emergency?

Something to apply a form of, what’s the word, government?

Instead, we have the narcissistic clown posse.

Just to recap:

Large corporations were bailed out first.

Small business are now limited to a laughable loan limit.

There are still no tests.

There is still no PPE.

Food workers are sick.

Food plant safety standards were rolled back.

This administration, the Republican Congress, and Republican Governors 
are telling Americans that
their lives and livelihoods don’t matter.

Vote for something else.

Keeping the Trump tradition alive of naming federal officials whose job is to destroy the mission of the institution they're purported to lead. Only 8 1/2 months left to ruin the country. I'm sure he's still got a long list of things to screw up.

Vote blue up and down the ballot in every election.

I don’t think America was comfortable with a virus coming in killing tens of thousands of our loved ones, a disastrously incompetent Trump administration response, the destruction of the economy, and the complete exposure of our lack of safety nets, but so sorry your feelings are hurt, king of the oligarchs.

Trump said he was not comfortable with the 2020 election potentially becoming a referendum on his handling of the pandemic:
