Repeat Tweets: Why Europe Needs the EU

Repeat tweets from April, 2017:

  • Apr 2 2017: RT @Bencjacobs: "Theresa May would go to war to protect Gibraltar, Michael Howard says." Makes you understand why Europe needs the EU.

  • Apr 4 2017: RT @DonMcLeroy: "It's Time for Conservatives to Celebrate This President." Which President? Putin?

  • Apr 13 2017: RT @realDonaldTrump: "Things will work out fine between the U.S.A. and Russia. At the right time everyone will come to their senses & there will be lasting peace!" I think what @realDonaldTrump is saying here is that he's not as crazy as he acts. That's a little reassuring, I guess. Right?
  • Apr 17 2017: RT @scottbraddock: "Really good deep dive from @wfaachannel8 on the school voucher fight in Texas." "Deep dive"? Not quite deep enough. "Who are they? It's tough to say because no one answers their phones."
  • Apr 21 2017: RT @DonMcLeroy: "New science standards for Texas schools strike a major blow to the teaching of evolution." Former SBOE member and dentist who claims the way human upper and lower jaw fits together is evidence of Creationism likes TX science stds.
  • Apr 23 2017: RT @davidfrum: "Oh also we’re heading to a worsening crisis between India & Pakistan over Kashmir." Finally an international trouble spot Trump has boned up on...just kidding. Who knew India/Pakistan relations could be so complicated?

  • Apr 25 2017: RT @RafaelAnchia: "NEWS: #txlege voted against bill requiring payday lenders to honor ur no-call list." If I read this right, Linda Koop sided with payday lenders and Angie Chen Button was against them.
  • Apr 25 2017: Update: Linda Koop's voting machine recorded her vote wrong. Koop changed it to "Yes." Both Koop and Button voted against payday lenders.
  • Apr 25 2017: RT @SpeakerRyan: "Imagine filing your taxes on a form the size of a postcard. Wouldn’t that be something?" Imagine IRS doing your tax return for you and you just review. But then GOP would have to find another reason to cut taxes for the rich.
  • Apr 27 2017: Silence (2016): Persecution of Christians in 1600s Japan. Repetitious torture scenes. Where was God? Passionless. Where was Scorsese? C+

  • Apr 27 2017: RT @PolitiFactTexas: "A law says anyone may record a government meeting in TX. So, can a legislator bar you from doing so?" Same legislature that wants to restrict local government says state law doesn't apply to them. Because of course not.
  • Apr 28 2017: Sing for Your Life: Boy from broken home across from a crack house grows up to be an opera star. Amazing story. Mediocre storytelling. C+
