11 minutes that wrap up a lot of thoughts on the state of the US:
Got to admit, Thursday’s news that the various legal entities are circling the mob empire that the former president controls made me feel christmassy for the first time in 5 years. The very thought that he may finally meet justice sent my soul soaring. One of the last things my late mother-in-law said before she died 3 years ago was “I hope they get that son of a bitch.”
I am sad that she won’t be here to enjoy his twisting in the wind, but I will be thinking of her as he goes down. Also, in the kind of karmic twist we all love it is looking more and more like New York AG Letitia James will be the first to take a hunk out of his corrupt ass. James is four of what he hates most. She is a woman, she is black, she is honest and she is a Democrat. Karma at Christmas is delightful.
So lots and lots happened, plus Christmas is coming and Hanukah was great!
