What’s so great about Beto?

Doesn’t take any PAC money or big donor money period. Left or right. Won’t be beholden to big money interests.
Already pledged to support Bernie’s Medicare for All bill should he win
Legalization of Marijuana, expunging records of nonviolent drug offenders.
He wouldn’t have voted for Kavanaugh, and he would have voted for the Violence Against Women reauthorization.
Expanding of LGBTQ rights.
Public works projects like extending broadband access to rural areas and funding for the rail project between Dallas-SA-Austin-Houston.
Bringing back and protecting the voting rights act.
Increasing money for the VA.
Finding healthy solutions to immigration and the boarder, just like his home town El Paso a boarder town that’s one of the safest cities in the country
Prison reform, ending for profit prisons.


Also, is not Ted Fucking Cruz. That should be enough for you people.

boarder: Birds And Beaks Rescue and Rehab This will likely be the most heartbreaking post I ever write On the evening of January 1, 2018, we lost 11 birds. Most of the birds passed within about 30 minutes of each other, with the last one, a nanday conure not passing until around 4am We originally thought maybe carbon monoxide or something in the air, and began evacuation to the garage and called 911. The fire department tested both for carbon monoxide and noxious gases and our results were zeros across the board The next logical thought was food/water. We pulled all the food and water and put them on the counter The next morning, we took those birds to our veterinarian and had necropsies done for them. The initial things our doctor found were hearts were good, lungs were good, all seem to be in good health, except their stomachs were inflamed, there was a green sludge in their Gl tracts and their livers were rock hard. Gross necropsies were submitted by our vet for 2 birds to determine official cause of death with food toxicity being the suspicion There are another 3 birds that we are unsure if they will make it or not Today, January 3, 2018, I took the in-bowl samples of food to Michigan State University Before we go further, I want to make it clear I am not pointing fingers. There were 3 foods included in our mix, and thankfully we are fastidious - we have the packages that food came in so that batches can be pulled and we have contacted the companies. The foods are Zupreem Fruitblend, large size for macaws, cockatoos etc. Higgins Vitaseed Lefeber's Nutriberries MSU is in receipt of 2lbs of the food that was in the bowls and we should have results back for WHAT the toxin is within 5-7 days We spoke with another Michigan Rescue to tell them what's going on, and they also experienced a die off in the last week of 3 birds. The foods they were feeding are Zupreem Fruit Flavored Blend and Higgins Vitaseed Our hearts are broken. In a million pieces. We are not ok. We will probably never be ok again. I am happy to answer questions. What l don't want is mass hysteria. We are awaiting results back from the lab and necropsies - and all we can do is wait. What I'm concerned with is that birds are dying and unlike us - you guys usually have one or two birds. If something happens, you're thinking it's your fault. That you've done something wrong. You don't question the food because you trust it. You need to have necropsies done. You need to save your food, your bags, and you need to get it tested We don't know which food it was at this point, and we're not pointing fingers What I can tell you is that the companies are being very cooperative, helpful and working WITH us My personal opinion is that for now, if you are feeding any of those brands, please stop and feed fresh/frozen foods only until we have the results back for why this happened Please keep us in your thoughts. Our hearts are broken. We lost 11 family members.

 This will likely be the most heartbreaking post I ever write
 On the evening of January 1, 2018, we lost 11 birds. Most of the birds
 passed within about 30 minutes of each other, with the last one, a nanday
 conure not passing until around 4am
 We originally thought maybe carbon monoxide or something in the air, and
 began evacuation to the garage and called 911. The fire department tested
 both for carbon monoxide and noxious gases and our results were zeros
 across the board
 The next logical thought was food/water. We pulled all the food and water
 and put them on the counter
 The next morning, we took those birds to our veterinarian and had
 necropsies done for them. The initial things our doctor found were hearts
 were good, lungs were good, all seem to be in good health, except their
 stomachs were inflamed, there was a green sludge in their Gl tracts and their
 livers were rock hard.
 Gross necropsies were submitted by our vet for 2 birds to determine official
 cause of death with food toxicity being the suspicion
 There are another 3 birds that we are unsure if they will make it or not
 Today, January 3, 2018, I took the in-bowl samples of food to Michigan State
 University
 Before we go further, I want to make it clear I am not pointing fingers. There
 were 3 foods included in our mix, and thankfully we are fastidious - we have
 the packages that food came in so that batches can be pulled and we have
 contacted the companies. The foods are
 Zupreem Fruitblend, large size for macaws, cockatoos etc.
 Higgins Vitaseed
 Lefeber's Nutriberries
 MSU is in receipt of 2lbs of the food that was in the bowls and we should
 have results back for WHAT the toxin is within 5-7 days
 We spoke with another Michigan Rescue to tell them what's going on, and
 they also experienced a die off in the last week of 3 birds. The foods they

 never be ok again.
