Thank you to our dedicated volunteers who came out on Saturday. We mobilized 60+ volunteers, put up 200+ posters, and talked to voters throughout SF. The energy & enthusiasm for change was clear.

3-4 weeks between shots is an incredibly short interval compared to other vaccines. Made sense for quicker approval and quickly protecting the most vulnerable, but we should‘ve been testing other intervals as well. Let‘s hope this changes and that it’s a 1 time „booster“
Many thanks ⁦@DonLemonTonight⁩ for hosting me tonight with ⁦@JReinerMD⁩ re breaking news on 3rd immunizations after 8 months. I offered not too surprising given first 2 doses only 3-4 wks apart, essentially acting like a primary immunization nytimes.com/2021/08/16/us/va…

I agreed with President Biden's decision to withdraw from Afghanistan. Agree with Biden's blame of the Ghani government. That was a cruel speech that did not acknowledge Afghan suffering and contributions to the US mission. Took no responsibility for his catastrophic withdrawal

The amount of cynicism on my feed is depressing. People are being executed, others are rushing to airports trying to get visas and the capital is being overrun, and the reaction on this website is “this was inevitable nothing could have been done.”

If you think I’m taking the news from Afghanistan badly and personally, you’re right. Over my 4 years I met and served with the most impressive and courageous people. Afghans, Brits, Americans, Canadians, Dutch, French, Romanians, Turks, Aussies, Kiwis and many more. 1/

Careless claims abound that vaccine effectiveness is worsening. Especially with high vaccination coverage, and especially after significant infection levels, observational data is nothing like the unbiased comparison we have in vaccine trials. 1/3

[1] People underestimate the power of a generational meme Few understand that $DOGE was actually the first NFT; a jpeg of an cute shiba inu [not an actual project], and the saliency of this cuteness pumped it to 100 bill cap because it was FUN [and fostered inclusive community

Our position as the global financial leader is a privilege, not a right. Other countries have a head start on us in the development of digital assets. If we get this wrong, we handicap ourselves and put our future prosperity at risk.

Not gonna name names - yet - but there are literal crypto billionaires in NYC & SF who’ve been reluctant to enter the lobbying fray for fear occasional GOP alignment will mess up their liberal-leaning social circles. Time to put on big boy pants. Politics is a team sport fellas.

Just once, I'd like to hear a US Senator say 'Honestly, I don't understand this new technology well enough to have any Earthly idea whether or how we should regulate it. I'm probably not the only one who's confused. Maybe we should wait a while and learn more about this.'
