This ad using President Biden to attack "Democratic Socialists" aired this morning on Morning Joe.

If I didn’t know better, and as of now I don’t, this seems a Roger Stone class dirty trick. Who and what is the “Don’t Bankrupt New York Coalition” that sponsored the ad?https://share.icloud.com/photos/0yFvGmo229rTY427tLpWruqjg

Wyoming governor quietly mobilized Guard troops in Cheyenne

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — While the Wyoming National Guard was sending more than 100 troops to Washington, D.C., to help with security around President Joe Biden’s inauguration in January, Gov. Mark Gordon quietly mobilized dozens of Guard troops and others in case of violence at the state Capitol in Cheyenne.

The all-but-undisclosed local deployment Jan. 15-21, specifics of which came to light Friday after an inquiry by The Associated Press, stood in stark contrast with the state’s contribution to U.S. Capitol security praised by Gordon and other top Wyoming officials.

“Thank you to the @wyoguard members who are serving our country by providing support at today’s Presidential inauguration. Wyomingites are grateful for your service,” Gordon, a Republican, tweeted on Inauguration Day, Jan. 20.

Trickle up economics works!

Residents of Stockton, Calif., who received $500 a month from a first-of-its-kind guaranteed-income program were more likely to find full-time jobs, be happy and stay healthy, according to a year-long study published Wednesday.
Supporters of universal income programs — which provide regular, unconditional payments from the government to people — say the findings should dispel common criticisms of the idea, such as that money with no strings attached disincentivizes people to work or encourages them to spend it on drugs and alcohol. https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2021/03/03/stockton-universal-basic-income/
