Good morning, fellow Birdies, Progressives, and Free Thinkers. I’m Opening the Nest with a tune. It’s done by a jazz-fusion band called Yellowjackets. The track is titled “Local Hero” off the appropriately named album, “Politics.” 🙂 Jazz-fusion is called smooth jazz nowadays.
Enjoy the weekend, you all. Stay safe and well. 🙂
Here’s another Local Hero, the theme from one of my favorite movies.
No problem, jcb. You and Ms. Benny need a breather. Mark Knopfler/Dire Straits…. 🙂 !
Big, noticeable, cognizant difference between Bernie and SloMoJoe. That said, I still hope he allows some time to spend enjoying his family. If anyone has served their country as a true Public Servant, it’s the Bernster. He deserves it (and so do they)! 🙂
I would love to see Bernie run for president again and my octogenarian ass would be out working harder for him (in 3 states) than I did in 2015 and 2019. Last week I had a leak in my water heater in my garage and I had to move a lot of stuff around and took the opportunity to trash a lot of stuff, but I couldn’t let go of my boxes of Bernie yard signs. This democracy needs him. And the people want him.
That’s a valid point, Aint. I worked both his campaigns down here, and that 2016 one was one of the high points of my life. Still, no one lives forever and he loves his family and baseball. My big bitch now is where are his successors??
If that yahoo Summers flaps his gums, I automatically assume the opposite. The FDIC has already announced that all FDIC-insured deposits will be covered.
Larry Summers, smdh.
Two things others things that you can count on besides Death,Taxes. The Banksters and the MIC will get their $$$$$$
It will be interesting to see if this is within the spirit of the law. Rationally, I don’t believe so, but in Texas, I think the judge will rule that it is.
This batch of FRightwingnut loonies could also be planning on taking this one to the DC SCOTUS yahoos. I notice the ex-hubby is after a cool $1M.
This lawsuit is reminiscent of something out of The Handmaid’s Tale.
This was the best part of Real Time last night.
Hubster watches it and the segment he has right after it weekly. It was one of his better shows after the last one with Bernie and Russell Brand. Man, Brand was something else: a Brit fireball, for sure! ☄️
Summers is so full of you-know-what. Why does he still command attention?💩
Cause we live in a 1% kleptocracy.
How true in the good ole USA
Since it a “Tune” night i thought i would add the GQP’s no1 hit song since the New Year at least.
In today’s post at DWT. Howie Klein discusses the challenge the dems have to hold on to the senate with 20 seats in danger to rethugs. Their best hope is that the “crackpot extremist” rethugs continue to attack Medicare and Social Security. And he resurrects this “Granny Off the Cliff” video.
There’s more –
Folks are fed up in Floridumb, too.
Sun rises in the east; sun sets in the west, grrrrrr!
Bernie is all talk and no action. He just can’t get things done. NOT!!
Well, speaking of the devil, what a surprise! (Cue snark snort.) I hope a few young politicos in the House are taking notes!
I don’t see GOPers voting for Biden because of this move. This has the potential to hurt working families as the unemployment rates will go up. Dems will have some explaining to do in swing districts.
Sirota is correct (yet again 🙂 ). The FDIC covered deposits are safe up to $250G. It’s the rest of them that I have a BIG bitch with, SloMoJoe! Let them fail!
Point made in earlier comment.
Somehow I missed this..
Guess some genuine members of the CPC showed the faker their fangs. 🙂
Goody, goody for Schiff.
Won’t hurt him for the primary. Khanna, Lee, and Porter will duke it out for the second spot since CA is a ranked choice state.
