Response to Original message
72. I received an email from Dr.Jill Biden
this evening, asking to sign a birthday card for Joe. I felt like emailing her back & asking her to sign a get well card for Dorli Rainey, and Brandon Watts, and all the other protesters, who put themselves on the line for what they believe in and got pepper sprayed & beaten for it. But I know, it would be a waste of time, because I will just get some automated response back. But I just had to stop and ask myself..what the hell is wrong with these politicians? They are always asking if you "have their backs" when it comes to elections, but I just would like to know if they have ours. Obviously not. What I have seen the past couple of days, is some of the worst cases of police brutality perpetrated on protesters. It's sad what has become of America. And who speaks up for these people? Certainly not the "birthday boy" or his boss. They should be ashamed, truly, ashamed. This is just so upsetting.
