#drakesingforjasmin so here's whats up. Last night tweeted u guys after i asked her what she would do if 100k young people got together and tweeted her about something that mattered, in this case honoring the memory of your friend Jasmin. Her tweet is attached. She's a State Senator in New Mexico. Of course she'd listen. Drake is one of the most talented artists out there, and him singing for Jasmin would be amazing. He'd probably tell u the same thing I am. Him, me, we are celebrities which is great. I want u guys to see that when you come together u can get the attention of people with power. So how about this - tweet to the governor of nc, the two senators and Jasmin's congressman. Ask them to come to her memorial. And figure out what matters to you - the issues that face u in life and talk to them about them. I guarruntee you they will listen to you. I want u to learn not only how to honor your friend by getting the attention of your favorite artist which you've clearly achieved. I want you to learn about how to get the attention of people who make decisions that affect your lives. Along with engaging your favorite artists, engage your elected officials. Tell them what you think about whatever matters to you. And btw, a big lesson. Sen Torroco and I may not agree on absolutely everything - i have no idea whether we do - what matters is we all agree that kids coming together and leading a movement like this is amazing. You guys hold the record for the highest number of RT's i have ever gotten, and I'm proud that record belongs to Jasmin. God bless.

#uniteblue i'm sorry i didnt tweet #vasurge earlier on this hashtag. I learned about it last night - ironically from someone who identifies as tea party. She realizes, as I do, that veterans must be held harmless to the political nonesense of L vs R. I am a true independent. On given day I am as likely to agree with POTUS as i am a republican. I think it's wrong to judge an idea solely by its party of origin, i think it's as bad as judging me soley on the basis of being black. That said, I feel somewhat abandoned by progressives on this issue and its one that I expected, quite frankly, progressives to join on. I defend going on Fox, I defend going on Glenn, and i'd challenge you to find anything i've said that is cheap or untrue. I've reached out to MSNBC primetime (Chris, Rachel and Lawrence) over and over again. Yes, i have criticized POTUS. I am a 22 year veteran and the first black marine to both go to USNA prep and graduate the academy and I'm black, so good luck associating me with those who criticize him nefariously. He doesn't get a pass and he hasnt done nearly enough. Nor have House Republicans. If we can't unite on vasurge, where are we? Read my initial op ed at http://bit.ly/vasurge and consider sigining my petition to the white house at http://bit.ly/vasurgepetition - All I want is an answer - i've called the white house, i've written emails, and they have deliberately ducked me and in turn ducked 10's of thousands of servixe members, vets and their families.. That is my criticism of POTUS - I am not about bashing POTUS nor am I about bashing Republicans. This effort goes to the heart and soul of who we claim to be as AMERICANS. We don't bleed red or blue, we bleed red white and blue. I'd respectfully ask for your consideration and hope I can earn your support and your signature on my petition. Thanks for listening. http://twitpic.com/e89erw

About ready to give up. Really angry about this https://twitter.com/elm_livewire/status/484577026947313664 - I dnt associate with those views ONE BIT - Islam is a peaceful religion and every religion has those at the extremes who seek to exploit it by doing evil in its name. Each and every one of those quotes has failed the test of history and were uttered in another time. how dare anyone use what I said about vets or otherwise associate me with ignorance like that. I find it repulsive, disgusting and morally bankrupt. What have we become if this kind of hatred has become okay? Seriously. Words matter.

#vasurge please call Speaker Boehner's office at 202-225-3121 and tell him #veterans are tired of his political games and that you expect House Republicans to support the Bi-Partisan Senate Bill for the VA that the Speaker shelved in favor of letting his members go home for vacation. Tell him veterans dnt get a vacation from the va, nor shld congress until it does its job.
