Thanks Betsy!
I had to disable the Adobe flash plugin because that thing keeps crashing permanently on Windows, so cannot see the video linked. I went directly to YouTube to watch it but couldn't understand all the words clearly either, so here's the text for you all:
(Send it to the EUROGROUP/ specifically Schäuble, but also to all other John Crankers the world over! No shortage in the US !)

" I love a good man outside the law as much as I hate a bad man inside the law. "

Personally, as a banker, I don't think all bankers are to blame. The ones to blame are those who buy the politicians give them what they want.

Having said that, if Elizabeth Warren was running for president or when she runs, I'll vote for her.

Also, Woody is one of my all time heroes.

I agree Patrick all bankers are not bad....neither are all insurance companies

But the bad ones of both are effecting so much of modern life.

Woody is an all time hero of mine, always has been.

Thank you everyone. I needed to celebrate Woody. Thanks for doing it with me.

Now back to Bernie......some of his followers don't mind that he is a socialist at all. And most of his followers not buying into the right wing and the confusion they are trying to sow......know all of this quibbling about what kind of socialist he is is just to sow confusion by those who do not want Bernie's questions asked by the rest of us.

What a nice thing for Angelika to do...provide the lyrics...but I don't know how to get to the link she mentioned. But I'll do a search to get them since I couldn't hear so well either. Woody knew what was going on as many are beginning to get now. The cycle keeps going, I guess. I do hope we can survive this one before the bankers, et al, destroy the country and the planet. Go, Woody, go! Tell it like it is! Thanks, Betsy, so nice to share this with us. P.S. I'm surprised Patrick dares admit to being a banker but I'm sure he's one of the good guys since he'd vote for Elizabeth!

We've got a "Woody Guthrie spirit" running for the presidency in the US. Guess who? Thanks Betsy.
