Feeling the Bern in the New Year (JJIJ)

Happy New Year!

It’s been awhile . . .

I’ve been paying little attention to the news in the last few months, but you just can’t escape the shit.

I missed half of the second Democratic Debate, since I had no idea it was on, a major network station at that. Not sure how that happened other than maybe they did a poor job of promoting it, especially on a Saturday night right before Christmas.

I recorded the third Republican Debate, but just deleted it without watching it. Wasn’t up for being entertained. Seems like I heard a few governments have said they will ban Trump from coming to their countries, and that Cruz may have been born in Canada. But, I have done no real research on those tidbits.

Western Illinois University has a history of predicting the winner of the presidential elections. Guess who they predicted the winner will be – Bernie Sanders . . .

Yep – feeling the Bern!! Time will tell . . .

Heard about the Syrian refuges they arrested in Texas and California for being terrorists. Pretty much exactly what so many feared.

I read in our local paper that gas prices are causing many layoffs in the oil and gas industry, but they followed that statement saying that with raw materials so cheap, the refineries are doing well, by buying in bulk now while prices are low, making their profit margins larger. So in the end, the oil and gas (refineries) company stock holders and CEOs probably aren’t taking that big of a hit. Just the middle class who lost their jobs – most likely a bunch of people in my age group.

Had a lot of company in December, at different times all spread out. It was good to see family we haven’t seen in some time.

Caught up with a few of my blog buds today. Enjoyed that immensely!

Anyway, thought it would be nice to contribute to Just Jot it January, over at Linda G. Hill’s blog. Hope it isn’t my only contribution 😉

Just some things I’ve been thinking about it . . .

  1. Things are going well for some but not so well for others, all in the same company. What does that say about the company? Hmmm…I couldn’t help but notice that “well” is used to describe the state of things with a company that is in the “well business.”

  2. I do like Bernie, but I have misgivings with people who speak about themselves in third person.

    OTOH, I’m hearing noises about Elizabeth Warren as Bernie’s running mate — something I’ve been hoping for ever since Sanders announced his candidacy.
