And the black sand spoke out loud to the child who wept over them.

"We can grant what you wish," they said, "and in return, you must release us back on the shores of our coastal home."

The boy happily agreed...

@TonyStark Our President is saving lives today and every day. This is what we voted and worked for.

Why does the CEO of a huge U.S. hospital company make 1,000 times more than an Employee of the Month? nbcnews.com/business/corporati
So very wrong. He deserves better.

Great to hear about food benefits increasing. Especially helps children and the older Americans, the vast majority of the people whose nutrition benefits from SNAP.

Many studies indicate that adequate food has many, many positive outcomes (i.e. school performance, health care costs, completion of HS, future earnings.) And please understand, the people in need get the food and the middle class gets the $.

Farmers, food processors, the transportation sector, grocery stores, etc., etc., etc., all benefit. SNAP is a $ windfall for the middle class and a nutrition windfall for those not earning enough. Just like rent subsidies, health care coverage, or public school funding, the people get housing, medical care, and education. The middle class gets good jobs. Win, win, win. It is short-sighted, mean-spirited, or uninformed to be against such efficient and human-based policy.

@TonyStark There’s no excuse we have for letting people go hungry when we can do something about it. The same goes for healthcare and a liveable wage.

@TonyStark Anyone who cares about helping families to provide enough food for their children should applaud Joe Biden for tackling this urgent problem. Having sufficient food to feed your family is a human right.

@TonyStark We did well electing him, and we must make sure everyone can vote so the Republicans can't stop us from electing the people we want again next time, Sen. Manchin

@TonyStark An administration that truly wants to help feels so good.

He is right and I am thankful that we have a President who's taking this issue seriously. The time of the Republican plan of "we've tried nothing and we're all out of ideas" is overdue for an end.

Friends, our democracy is in danger.

Here's why the Senate needs to pass S.1:
Republicans have already introduced 250 bills to restrict voting and suppress voting all over the country. Republicans are working at federal and state levels to encourage voter suppression of anyone who might vote against them:
cnn.com/2021/03/15/politics/st

But remember, we made it through four years of the worst it could possibly be. We got through it and we are stronger, more united, and better organized as a result.

We will fight whatever they throw at us. Let's take five minutes to use our voices on this issue. Remember, they and your vote are your superpowers.

Call your two Senators. 202-224-3121 or senate.gov/senators/senators-c to contact them by local office numbers or email. Or use resist.bot/ to iMessage or text them. And help spread the word to others.

Please get your shot. You aren’t just protecting yourself, but others you come in contact with who can’t or can’t yet get the vaccine.

I'm loving these billboards. Especially the part that say "no thanks" to the GOP representation for that state.

Whoever thought Joe Biden was too old for this job was grossly mistaken. The guy knows how to lead, and he knows when to let his PR team loose. #HelpIsHere

@strawberryfieldsforever Probably, yes! It seems that they tend to block things like facebook, Whatsapp, etc., because they don't want people to communicate about certain events going on. mastodon would be a great way around that!
