Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan on a conversation with Governor Inslee: "I'd like everybody to tape a picture of a nurse to their front door or their car and ask themselves, 'Is it worth that nurse's life for me to walk out of my house right now?' We've got to what we need to do to protect those front line workers, our first responders, our health care workers."

Make yourself a collage of your health care worker friends, have your kid draw a picture of their pediatrician, whatever it takes.

My friends and I are staying at home as our governors have ordered. Fortunately we are able to move to @stux's cat-friendly instance without going outside.

You know the reason isn't what Republicans are claiming.

Federal Appeals Court Panel Reaffirms Texas Abortion Ban Under Coronavirus Limits

The decision allows the ban while litigation continues. Top state Republican officials have said abortion is an elective procedure and should be suspended to save medical supplies during the pandemic.

@IronMan @mariahill Abortion is a healthcare service. Are they telling the same thing to everyone?

Need an abortion? We are legally obligated to provide them where you live? No airplane to England due to the pandemic? THERE MIGHT BE A FERRY, GOOD LUCK!

Recently I've heard young people make plans to meet at the local Walmart& Target to just 'hang out'. That or they literally cruise around town hitting local drive-thrus multiple times a day. I have one van load of elderly I see 3x EVERY DAY in an 8hr shift. They think wearing gardening gloves will protect them. I'm afraid seeing workers drop right in front of them wouldn't even get the message through their thick heads. 😠

Kaiser Health News reports that COVID-19 can cause damage to the heart as well as the lungs. Stay well, everyone.

Mnuchin stood up there and told American small businesses they could apply right away and get the money the same day.

The lies never stop in this corrupt administration.

I might add it's up to consumers to push for worker protections, if their employers are slow on the uptake. Yesterday I shopped at two local grocery stores. One had plexiglas shields installed. Plus, disinfectant applied to the area after each order. The other had nothing. I wrote a strongly worded message to that store about their lapse in worker protection. Corporations or franchise owners need to know we're noticing & requiring these safeguards, if they still want our patronage.

Grocery store workers, gas station clerks, sanitation workers, truck drivers and other delivery people; the people who keep our food coming and the power on and the water running - this crisis shows how vital they are to keeping everything running for the rest of us.  

This sad situation has everything to do with the Trump administration's 70 days of essentially doing nothing along with corporate irresponsibility.

Grocery workers are beginning to die of coronavirus:

Kamala Harris: “If you’re able, take a moment this week to call a friend you haven’t talked to in a while. Send a message to your grandparents. At times like these we need to make sure we’re social distancing, but not emotional distancing.”

Not everyone has someone at home
or has a family
or a job to fill their day
or kids to be with
or a pet to play with.

Many people live alone.

Your call, text, email, card or letter could be the highlight of someone’s day...

Maybe yours too 😊

Representative John Lewis is battling pancreatic cancer but said he’d travel around America for Biden if social distancing guidelines are eased amid the coronavirus pandemic.

May John Lewis get well soon. May the rest of us draw inspiration from his words.

Trump isn't working in a vacuum.

He exists because the Republican Party wants him to exist.

They need a corrupt ruler to achieve their goals of poisoning the election process and corrupting the House and the Senate, corrupting the Supreme Court, the State Department, the departments of Justice, Energy, the Interior, Education, Housing and every other federal department and office they can.

They've been on a 40-year crime spree - and we have until November to stop it.

Some good news, although this rule has been suspended since 2018.

We simply must elect the Democratic nominee in November. We have a lot to fix. :captain: @HeroesResist

It's stunning that Wisconsin Republicans just refused to comply with the governor's order to delay.

They just don't care.
