Even leaving my objection aside,

He did not have any option to do that (figuratively or literally), even had he inexplicably wanted to.

Asking for an impossibly doesn't strike me as a good idea if you really want what you say you want.

I'm not currently planning to criticize anything else, but I find that hashtag impossible to comprehend in any way, shape, or form. And I wouldn't no matter to whom it was directed.

I don't agree with telling anyone

(except maybe an actual king, queen, emperor, or tyrant) to bow down. I find that hash tag very unfortunate.

Something I thought might be of interest.

This is the most complete video I could find. It goes from Bernie coming on stage to Bernie leaving. The camera veers around sometimes, and there's some people near the camera who sometimes say things I wish they wouldn't, but I think this is the best out there. (Oh, and the comments make me pretty depressed about human beings as well.)

I tracked it down (it wasn't easy) because I wanted to make up my own mind. I offer it for anyone else who wants to do the same.

What a nice guy. I like and appreciate him a lot.

I actually saw a video of one of the Seattle people where she seemed like a reasonable person who made a lot of sense.

My issues with BLM (yeah, I know, actually define that) at the Seattle event were that a) they acted like they were being suppressed when they were actually being allowed to speak (as far as I could make out), and b) they refused an interview afterwards.

Perhaps there was a reason for refusing the interview (I don't know Seattle politics nor the history of that station and that reporter), but it sure didn't look good on the surface.

Again I will harp on empathy!

All one has to do to understand this conversation is look at a bus schedule. Doesn't even require a computer. Looking at car v bus on Google maps? Please.

That gave me a smile.

A rather twisted one, I will admit.

Dang! Why can't some people see how *they* would feel if the tables were turned? My mamma drummed that into my head so well that even my racist dad couldn't get past it.

Not funny at all.

If a thing can hurt, it deserves fair treatment.

People need to think before they take responsibility for a living thing.

That said, I have a friend who has had a 150-pound pig for years. He loves it. Same as a dog.

Cabaret and Buzzr (game tv - old - on cable)

Caveat - I may well go night night right after posting this.

Looking at Bert Convy and remembering that he was the original Isherwood character in the original Broadway Cabaret. I liked the movie but I LOVED the original musical.

Lotte Lenya:

There's more I love that didn't make it into the movie, but not on YouTube from the original cast album.

Betty White and Allen Ludden are also on the episode I'm watching.


Oh, I certainly do.

Who it wasn't sold to was the people, the court of public opinion, who could at least have attempted to push the legislators. And the idea would at least have gotten some publicity.

So nothing might have come of it - something might have. To go with what I think was the theme of this OP, I don't think many people expected what is happening with Bernie. And at least it wouldn't have been written off from the very beginning, and the representatives of that viewpoint, IIRC, completely shut out.

My impression has always been that he starts his negotiations at the point where he thinks they are going to end. I haven't negotiated much, but that's not the idea as I understand it.

Anyhow, thanks for the conversation. I think I've said everything I had to say, probably too many times....!

We all were promised,

or at least implied, a lot in 2008. We got the best our corporate masters would allow.
