I get it, oh lawd do I get it. I don’t know that I can do what you’re asking but I will say that I just noticed that a year ago I had posted some smartass thing on Facebook about Trump announcing his candidacy, back when it was just one big laughfest. No one’s laughing anymore.

As I just mentioned in another response, I’ve been conflicted since I posted this piece. I completely believe in Bernie and I felt (and feel) that he was the only genuine and truly ethical candidate in the race, on either side. But I’m sufficiently concerned about Trump (although please Jesus let him FINALLY implode when it really counts). I’m watching Bernie like a hawk to see what he does and am remaining open to how things play out.
