Instead of endless free handouts to illegal immigrants, wide open borders with Mexico, D&I posturing and Juneteenth, this is what I would have liked to see: Appreciation for our Covid Essential workers, who just had the worst 1+ year of their life. Now this is a government that I can respect.

So is this an anti-Biden post or a post about merit-based immigration?

Does that mean they have to hang out with the French? Not really doing them any favors in my book.

Depends. Who do those laws stop from coming in here legally? My parents have told me how hard it is to get legal documentation. Maybe it also depends on what country people are coming from. That's also another problem that needs to be addressed

Aight holiday gifts/tips for staff (mainly my PA) - I had heard as junior that it’s $100 per class year, so for example if ur a 3rd year it’s $300 to your PA.

I love my PA but this year with WFH I really did not give her any work, but also we all get paid more what with covid bonuses so it seems extra grinch to not pay out. What’s your plan?

(this is not about your opinion on mask-wearing. I frankly dgaf) I was at the doctor's office today and one receptionist was not wearing a mask. The other was wearing one improperly.
