Couldn't Get A Good Subject Line From The Spider Plant This Morning, Sorry Y'all.

Lovelies! Good morning! How’s your coffee? How was your sleep? Did you get at least eight hours? Cuz I’m using this 2003 study getting re-passed around on the interwebs that says “…chronic restriction of sleep to 6 h or less per night produced cognitive performance deficits equivalent to up to 2 nights of total sleep deprivation,” to justify why I’d rather be at home by 8 and in bed by 9:30 instead of, you know, being social. I wake up at 5 am, you monsters, and I want to be Missive-ready! For you! Because you’re awesome! What more do you need from me?!?!

  • Hey, have y’all figured out that I’m voting for Elizabeth Warren yet? No? Well, I am! Wholeheartedly and with a genuine excitement! And since the whole “electability” thing is being tossed around, let it be known: I’m voting for her AND I believe she’s electable. I won’t use the curse word since I’m mindful of your work email firewalls—and note that there’s an eff bomb in the URL if you’re clicking—but this website sent in by Friend of the Missive Ryan hits all the things square in the face: “She’s electable if you [hecking] vote for her.” 

  • And what is one of the many reasons I am voting for her? Because it is 2020 and we’re seeing scary headlines like this: Five arrested, accused of targeting journalists as part of neo-Nazi Atomwaffen group. 

  • To all those people who told me after the 2016 election that I’d be fine since I was an American citizen: A New Section Of US Attorneys Is Being Created To Strip Naturalized Citizenship From Suspected Fraudsters. BTW, this article leans heavily on the side of the DOJ, framing the situation as one where fraud cases have skyrocketed and referencing what must be their talking points as to why these lawyers are needed. The fact that the DOJ seems to be doing a PR campaign around this announcement whilst engaging in other anti-immigrant activities doesn’t make this any easier to swallow.

  • Meanwhile, Trump wants to pardon Roger Stone and even his advisors think that’s a really, really bad idea (but for optics, not, you know, justice.)

  • At least this is good! Cool pope straight up cool pope’ing: “For Lent, give up trolling”.

I like you. Be kind to each other.
