*Hamas* ended the November ceasefire by killing people at a bus stop in Jerusalem and then backing out of the hostage/prisoner swap.

1. These aren't the first hostages rescued this way.

2. This could end if Hamas freed the rest of their kidnapping victims. But they refuse to do so because Palestinian lives don't matter to Hamas leaders.

I don't need my feet washed. Could use health care security not tied to my job, safety and freedom for my queer and non white friends and family, housing and food for people on the street, maybe a little world peace, possibly some tacos at lunch. My feet, though, are fine

NATO isn’t a pay to play set up, as Trump seems to think. It’s an Alliance that is first and foremost about US national security interests to prevent another world war originating in Europe. The US investment in NATO is worth every dollar - the only time that the article 5 collective defense clause was initiated was in response to 9/11. Our Allies came to our aid then, and it would be shameful and misguided to not do the same — Alina Polyakova #quotes #quotes #NATO #Deterrence #CollectiveSecurity #CollectiveDefense #Russia #TrumpsPutinsPuppet #RussianThreat #politics

The thing about Taylor Swift and the Super Bowl is that YOU SHOULD REGISTER TO VOTE.

Right now.

Okay, now I'll be serious.

From @NPR Trump thinks that copyright legislation he signed while president made Taylor Swift "so much money," it would be "disloyal" of her to endorse Biden.

I would imagine Swifties would be annoyed and offended by the idea of a guy trying to take credit for her success.

Disloyal? Wow.

"For every 1,000 cases of #measles, about 200 children may be hospitalized, 50 may get pneumonia, one child may develop brain swelling along with deafness or disability, and between one and three may die.

Despite the availability of an incredibly effective #vaccine, the #disease is spreading worldwide.

Last month, the World Health Organization announced an 'alarming' 45-fold increase in measles in Europe from 2022 to 2023."

@skykiss What I can't understand are all the good ol' boys who proudly claim #white #European heritage are now so eager to let #RU and #pootie conquer Europe to elect #trump and stick it to #libs and #progressives. #CriticalThinking is not their strong suit.

WARSAW, Poland: The head of the NATO military alliance warned Sunday that Donald Trump was putting the safety of US troops and their allies at risk after the Republican presidential front-runner said Russia should be able to do "whatever the hell they want" to NATO members who don't meet their defense spending targets.

@GottaLaff NFL. Biden did not think "for a split sec that Egypt was Mexico". He misnamed a country with a border issue - pulling the wrong name out of a choice of two. People do this all the time. I do it quite often. Word memory is associative. Especially noticeable when there is an extra person in your life - the closest matching person gets mis-named a lot.
