Retweeted by John Munson @ka29ra ach. I see. Sorry. I'm on a hair trigger. Just feeling desperate and so many people are telling artists to be quiet. @ka29ra feel free to disagree with me, but don't tell me what to do.

@tomweber_MPR I have seldom seen or heard of cops apologizing. Recall 3 cops pointing guns at me as I bought candy bar. Terrified. Nothing @SenSchumer @SenateMajLdr Going forward please refer to Mr McConnell as "The Tortoise" so America will know who you're talking about @Jen_Boyles she and that Spicer character are gonna have some serious answering to do in the afterlife.Me talking about me. It was nice to do as blabbing about yourself can be with the right interlocutor. https://t.co/Ss1Z6U1l0c
