Dunno, Bernie. Don’t care much, either. If you feel like doing something nice for us with all that power that you sold us out to get, then great- knock yourself out. Otherwise, the expectations of your former supporters will remain at zero, or slightly less.

If in doubt, see the signature.

Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier

For me, this song you've chosen shows deserved respect for Bernie's intention and likely lament.

on my computer like it does my Ipad so it is easily missed. From what I see it is only in front of Biden. I saw people saying that it is protecting the 'wrong' president and other memes in that vein. I saw it as funny and unnecessary because the whole damn thing was theater and untimely theater while wealth inequality is so damn high right now. It is the ultimate in your face F/U to the masses and boy is it totally typical that they don't see that way.

If you elect Ossoff and Warner I will send you a $2,000 check immediately. Instead nothing will be done until March and dems are still debating to chuck the filibuster. If they don't then they are telling us that they want the republicans to block their agendas. It is that simple.

It is a left over thing from the Civil War era and it does need to go because it is only used by 1 party to cover that neither one wants to help Americans. If dems decide not to kill it for Biden then that will just prove that point.

Oh no, the NYT writes propaganda some times. Maybe I shouldn't use it.

awaiting the call to appear before the judge.
In the meantime, my clients are talking to each other, and I have no choice but to listen. This is maybe the 5th time I have heard their story. Court was scheduled for today without my knowledge, so here I am, seeking custody of a tiny child on behalf of the grandparents. There are suspicious circumstances surrounding the death from suffocation of their 5 week old grandchild. They just want to save the 18 month old. I hope the judge is not too impressed by the parents successfully completing a drub rehab program. oh, goody.
Meanwhile, I had to reschedule 2 conference calls. Occasionally, my client hums a song. Can't identify it. Sounds somewhat like snoring.
Oh, well, I do not consciously dwell on hope, despair, and really have to positive or negative outlook. I basically break it down to what I can do each day to help someone. My goal is to do that today, twice, 2 different cases.
Tomorrow will be someone else's turn.
