    Say all the things you would like to do about it, and what you feel you canít do any

    "Say all the things you would like to do about it, and what you feel you canít do anything about."


    I wonder if this sentence is grammatical.

    I actually think this sentence needs no 'it' because a relative pronoun 'that' is omitted between

    'say all the things' and 'you would like to do about it'

    It's not a good sentence, however, 'it' is necessary.
    "There are things I can't do anything about." Right.
    "There are things I'd like to say about." Not correct.
