For a few minute there I had a spinning wheel with the message “connecting” but nothing would post. I closed the chat but left the Planet Open. I refreshed the page and then reopened the chat and it is now working….I think.

sillylittleme

sillylittleme

Cheers slam!

adlib 7 days ago

adlib 7 days ago

ad you slammed?

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Oops, looks like I’m stuttering tonight. slm, ad, with me, it’s same old, same old.

glenn

7 days ago

slm – Yep, had my internet go down today, lots of techie challenges this week though I can see daylight now.

adlib 7 days ago

ad – well everything looks good from this end…

sillylittleme

7 days ago

So, ad, murph, and slm….what are the chances of Dems holding on to the Senate? Could we hope for some extra seats in the House? Especially now that mcconnell and his pals have telegraphed that they are going to shut down the government again?

glenn

7 days ago

ad – thanks for posting my article

sillylittleme

7 days ago

hey harleigh – passing a doobie

sillylittleme

7 days ago

hi guys

Harleigh

7 days ago

Wow, this new site is easy to use!

funksands

7 days ago

Harleigh, knew you walked into the door because of the little beep…and there is funk sands….howdy too

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

Hey harleigh, how are you?

glenn

7 days ago

hey funk

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Hey funk, you’re here!

glenn

7 days ago

stoned again. The av is the real me BTW LOL

Harleigh

7 days ago

Glenn et. al. Sam Wang of the Princeton Election Consortium stands apart from most poll analysts in his assertion that the Dems will hold the Senate but the guy has a better record than election guru Nate Silver of “538” fame. In his article Senate Democrats are outperforming expectations Wang looks at the Senate races in Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina and New Hampshire. He calculates that Dems lead in five of these races (AK, AR, CO, NC, NH), are tied in two (IA, LA) and only behind in two (KS, KY). What is happening? Senate Democrats are doing surprisingly well. “Fundamentals” pull probabilities away from the present. The present is more sharply focused than the future. To read what all of that means take a look at Wang’s technical report. I know I will be watching this site in the future.

murphthesurf3

Yes, sorry I’ve been absent so much recently, been ridiculously busy. With the kids in school, should be easier

funksands

7 days ago

Murph, I agree, I think they’ll hold it 51-49

funksands

7 days ago

All interested…. the link…

murphthesurf3

harleigh – I’ve seen your face somewhere before.

sillylittleme

7 days ago

funk – agree

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Anyone know how to make the vox box bigger?

funksands

7 days ago

Hey Funk!

adlib 7 days ago

Thanks, murph, for the info. I hope Dems and even independents do NOT sit this one out. It also looks like some tp guvs are going down. I hope the one in my state does! Seems it’s neck and neck here in GA.

glenn

7 days ago

Hi Ad, Murph, Silly, Harleigh

funksands

7 days ago

funk – the bottom right corner pulls down

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Oh yeah, you too Kes.

funksands

7 days ago

Funk, click on the bottom corner of the window and drag it to enlarge.

adlib 7 days ago

Hi Kes

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

Shazam! Thanks everyone

funksands

7 days ago

Hey kids! How’s your collective Friday night?

kesmarn

7 days ago

hahaha SLM!!! I am the guy you mother warned their daughters about… too many years ago. cry

Harleigh

7 days ago

Funk…when you are done enlarging you have to click again or it keeps expanding and shrinking

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

hey kes

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Got it.

funksands

7 days ago

Hey Kes! A hectic day but nice to be chillin’ with friends!

adlib 7 days ago

Ack

funksands

7 days ago

harleigh – you actually look a lot like a friend of mine. you’re not a scientologist are you?

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Jesus

funksands

7 days ago

Likewise, AdLib!

kesmarn

7 days ago

Funk….what do you think of the new chat space on the Planet…a new land

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

Hi Kes–doing well here, and you?

glenn

7 days ago

hey beatlex

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Beatlex is in the hizzy!

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

Has Jesus logged in, funk? I missed that.

kesmarn

7 days ago

I think I like it Murph.

funksands

7 days ago

SLM – I am the least religious person you ever met.

Harleigh

7 days ago

Murph, I agree with that assessment, I think the Dems will do better than the BS meme the MSM is spreading, that the Repubs will take over. They want that to happen because it would lead to more conflict and that means ad dollars to them.

adlib 7 days ago

Hey Beatlex how goes it?

glenn

7 days ago

Harleigh…thank god

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

harleigh – you have a doppleganger

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Wassup Voxites? smile

beatlex

7 days ago

murph – lol

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Ooooooo private chat sunglasses

funksands

7 days ago

Hey Beatlex, from George to John? Keeping us guessing who your favorite was!

adlib 7 days ago

SLM – GOOD! I’ll send it my bills! LOL

Harleigh

7 days ago

I love it!

funksands

7 days ago

Hi X!

funksands

7 days ago

Ad lib….which is why I like this new site…The Princeton Consortium….they get “theirs” from being right.

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

Fund…yes, private chat…ooooooohhhhh

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

harleigh – he’s a cheap fuck so by all means wink

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Funk – Yep, private chats. But you have to keep your shirt on.

adlib 7 days ago

I think Dems should be pushing the benefits of Obamacare big time. I see two more repub guvs have expanded Medicaid

glenn

7 days ago

glenn – yes they have out of desperation

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Adlib,tough one,probably Paul.But I love all the Lads!

beatlex

7 days ago

Ad, is it like ChatRoulette?

funksands

7 days ago

😉

funksands

7 days ago

😉

kesmarn

7 days ago

I would hope the dems in all those races won. It would be a great start.

Harleigh

7 days ago

glenn – I agree and Dems should be pushing Repubs on what they would replace it with if they repealed it…and threw millions of Americans off of health insurance.

adlib 7 days ago

SLM–love that smell of desperation in repubs.

glenn

7 days ago

funk – then he would have told you to keep your pants on

sillylittleme

7 days ago

glenn – me too

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Funk – More like Chat Poker.

adlib 7 days ago

Glenn…corbett today tried to say he was “not really buying into Obamacare.” No one seemed to buy it.

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

Kasich is the guy that pulled off the Obamacare slight of hand most masterfully. He’s a scumbag, but he really did it.

funksands

7 days ago

murph – corbett’s going down

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Kudos to the President for showing restraint on ISIS,and making the MSM look stupid in the process

beatlex

7 days ago

Murph–Just another repub liar. What else can he say?

glenn

7 days ago

beatlex – not that you would hear that from the press

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Are Americans really scared of ISIS or are they just bored?

funksands

7 days ago

Kudos to the prez for wearing a tan suit and driving batshitcrazy king even crazier.

glenn

7 days ago

Right you are, funk. Kasich appointed a special committee to decide on the Medicaid expansion. That way the GOPers didn’t even have to vote on the record.

kesmarn

7 days ago

“The audacity of taupe,” glenn.

kesmarn

7 days ago

kes – nice one

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Wish I could take credit for it, SLM. But I stole it.

kesmarn

7 days ago

dem candidates should be open and supportive of the ACA and the millions now insured. To get out the vote, not attract bagger votes.

Harleigh

7 days ago

Kes, he’s awesome, he took the Medicaid expansion, told everyone he’s just getting Ohio’s money back and it has nothing to do with the ACA and the Ohio press is totally treating him like a hero for expanding Medicaid. He’ll win the election on that strategy

funksands

7 days ago

Kes–LOL–that damn black man showing audacity again!

glenn

7 days ago

AdLib,is there a way to make the box bigger onthe screen?

beatlex

7 days ago

He should have worn it again today just to fuck with everyone

funksands

7 days ago

funk, I’m afraid he will. Which is too bad because he’s really a bum. A smart one. But a bum

kesmarn

7 days ago

And Repubs may lose a lot of Governorships too. Lots of scandal around Walker, Rick Scott’s weak, Corbett’s not looking good…

adlib 7 days ago

Kes, how’d you turn off your location?

funksands

7 days ago

funk – now that would have been funny, although they would have questioned his hygiene.

sillylittleme

7 days ago

I’ve got a bad feeling about Florida. Nobody likes Charlie Crist

funksands

7 days ago

Beatlex, just click and drag a bottom corner of the window to enlarge it.

adlib 7 days ago

Reagan wore a tan suit too. But the RW loved that one. I personally believe it’s actually the same suit. Left in a back part of the closet.

kesmarn

7 days ago

funk – I don’t think that is true

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Funk–nobody likes Crist, but I think they like Scott even less.

glenn

7 days ago

Silly, that would have been interesting

funksands

7 days ago

Funk..really no one likes Crist?

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

kes – is on a roll

sillylittleme

7 days ago

funk, to turn off the location, you go to your profile here and there is that option.

kesmarn

7 days ago

Thx Ad

beatlex

7 days ago

Kes….I want what you are sipping.

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

I know, but I just have a bad feeling about Florida. Doesn’t feel right, and I think the progressive challenge to Crist is hurting Dem enthusiasm a lot

funksands

7 days ago

“The audacity of dope.” in Reagan’s case.

kesmarn

7 days ago

murph – me too kes – what are you drinking?

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Murph, I’m not sure what got put into this coffee when I wasn’t looking.

kesmarn

7 days ago

Sfunk – south floriduh is dem and for Christ. Skeletor Scott may go down.

Harleigh

7 days ago

Kes–LOL

glenn

7 days ago

😀 glenn

kesmarn

7 days ago

Enter…KT….taaaaa daaaaa

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

Harleigh, I hope you are right. You are closer to it than I am

funksands

7 days ago

As long as the voter suppression is held back in FL, I think Crist will win.

adlib 7 days ago

hey kt

sillylittleme

7 days ago

ad – I agree

sillylittleme

7 days ago

harleigh – my mom is in your vicinity and she thinks Crist will be back in

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Sfunk..Skeletor Scott..LOLmaybe he and Skeletor Jan Brewer can get together

beatlex

7 days ago

KT–are you here? Or are you there?

glenn

7 days ago

People are routinely referring to Rick Scott as “Skeletor” these days.

kesmarn

7 days ago

of course she’s 90 and senile

sillylittleme

7 days ago

I think Walker can lose, Corbett will lose and if so, three major swing states go back to Dems.

adlib 7 days ago

Just before the 2016 Presidential elections.

adlib 7 days ago

What’s up peopleoids?

killgoretrout

7 days ago

Hey KT!

adlib 7 days ago

Oops…did you already say that, funk?

kesmarn

7 days ago

Hey KT!

beatlex

7 days ago

funk Christ s saying he swith from repub and will go with the progressive agenda esp for seniors. He has my vote.

Harleigh

7 days ago

Hey, Homie! How’s your Labor Day weekend starting out?

kesmarn

7 days ago

Harleigh–I lived in FL when Crist was guv, and even though he was a republican then, he acted more like a Dem, which is why I voted for him then. That was back in the day when there were still some sane republicans.

glenn

7 days ago

Hey B!, glenn, slm,Harleigh Homie Murph, funk and PPO!

killgoretrout

7 days ago

PPO in the house!

adlib 7 days ago

Do I see Melbourne clocking in there?

kesmarn

7 days ago

PPO….good to see you..the house is filling up nicely.

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

hey ppo

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Hey, Y’all . Great to see you. Yes looking good

pinkpantheroz

7 days ago

Hi Pink

funksands

7 days ago

PPO–g’day mate!

glenn

7 days ago

I started calling Scott Skeletor at the old HP within months of his election.

Harleigh

7 days ago

Pretty good Homie. I’m getting ready to fly to Boston on Tuesday!

killgoretrout

7 days ago

glenn – I don’t see what winning message Scott has and if GOTV is really handled well by Dems, especially in the black community after Trayvon and SYG being supported by Scott, I think he loses.

adlib 7 days ago

Wow! Full House.

pinkpantheroz

7 days ago

Oh, back “on duty,” Homie? Wishing you all the best with your mom.

kesmarn

7 days ago

Hey OZ!!

beatlex

7 days ago

Yeah. Back “on duty.”

killgoretrout

7 days ago

PPO – I think the new decor of Vox helps!

adlib 7 days ago

Murph, that is really cool site. I’d forgotten about it.

funksands

7 days ago

kt – how long will you be on the cape?

sillylittleme

7 days ago

KT – How is your mom doing?

adlib 7 days ago

Harleigh, is that your mug?

killgoretrout

7 days ago

Okay, folks, here is a complete change of subject–this one is especially for you, KT, but I’ll take advice from anyone. If you had only a week to visit the New England area, where would you go and what would you do?

glenn

7 days ago

KT it’s me! LOL

Harleigh

7 days ago

Funk…that site would be right up your alley I think. It is a bit over my head.

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

Absolutely, Ad. this format and layout is great

pinkpantheroz

7 days ago

glenn – I’d head to Vermont and go hiking

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Go swim with the sharks Glenn!

beatlex

7 days ago

Mom’s doing great. She needs a driver though! I’m not sure slm. Several months, at least, maybe more.

killgoretrout

7 days ago

Good question glenn, I’m truing to talk the missus into taking the kids there next year

funksands

7 days ago

I’d go to the Concord, MA area, glenn, because I’m such a nerd that I love visiting places where Thoreau, Emerson et all hung out.

kesmarn

7 days ago

Besides, it’s pretty there.

kesmarn

7 days ago

Homie, I used to live in Woburn. A stones throw away from Concord. I’ve been to Walden, many times.

killgoretrout

7 days ago

kes – two hours max and you’re done

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Noooooo! SLM! Nerds like me can spend DAYS there!

kesmarn

7 days ago

I’m SO envious, KT. Wish I could live there.

kesmarn

7 days ago

Beatlex–thanks for the suggestion, but I swam with the sharks in the Keys, and that was enough. Unless of course, I’m sitting low in my seat, and misunderstood your meaning of “swim with the sharks.”

glenn

7 days ago

kes – seriously how long can one spend at the alcott house? and fyi, walden isn’t as nice as you imagine

sillylittleme

7 days ago

I think I’d go to Maine and eat lobster and NH to get a few gallons of real maple syrup.

Harleigh

7 days ago

It is beautiful there. Mass is a very beautiful state. Expensive too!

killgoretrout

7 days ago

I’ve been to Walden, SLM. And granted — it isn’t quite the way it was in Thoreau’s day — I was still drooling with hero worship at the Shrine! But that’s just me…

kesmarn

7 days ago

Swimming with the sharks is being in congress.

killgoretrout

7 days ago

I’ve been to Boston once. That’s the extent of my experience with New England. I feel like I”m missing out.

funksands

7 days ago

kes – when I was growing up it was a place to go get laid, enough said?

sillylittleme

7 days ago

It’s fun, funk. I lived in CT for 5 years and traveled a lot in NE. Pricey, though.

kesmarn

7 days ago

funk, it’s where it all began. Well, one of the main places anyhoo.

killgoretrout

7 days ago

My mother lives on Harvard square in her condo and my sister is in Bedford. Have not been there in decades.

Harleigh

7 days ago

Funk–you’re ahead of me. Never been to the area at all. My travel goals for this and the coming year are to visit places in the US that I’ve never seen.

glenn

7 days ago

funk – wanna trade? I wanna be in the Pacific Northwest!!!

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Talking about Congress, is anyone else getting the feeling that they’ve seen their high point in polls already and now it’s just downhill as they spout their RW lunacy and not just draft on Obama’s difficult decisions?

adlib 7 days ago

Seriously, SLM? I’m crushed. Although Thoreau might appreciate the irony…

kesmarn

7 days ago

That is, Repubs have seen their high point.

adlib 7 days ago

kes – I sure hope so smiling_imp

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Ad–repubs “high points” being…?

glenn

7 days ago

I’m reading a great book about trees right now: American Canopy. One of the chapters is about Thoreau and Walden. Apparently it was the only place for miles that had any trees left, they’d all been cut down. Also only a 30 minute walk to town. Not roughing it thats for sure

funksands

7 days ago

slm, if you like lots of rain, that’s the place to be. It starts around Halloween and doesn’t let up until Easter. It is beautiful though. Real Mountains there.

killgoretrout

7 days ago

Ad…..my own Congresman…older, GOP, been in the job a while….saw him last week….he knows me…only comment “What I would give for some real leadership on the Hill!”

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

There’s not much room for downhill on ratings when you start at 13%

kesmarn

7 days ago

AdLib,lets hope so,the thought of them controlling both houses is a grizzly thought

beatlex

7 days ago

Ad, it’s been remarkably quiet. I’m sensing a lot of uncertainty about how to proceed.

funksands

7 days ago

kt – I’ve been to Seattle a couple of times and I’d trade Boston for there any day. And I love the rain!

sillylittleme

7 days ago

glenn – In the polls, that is. I think that now that Repubs start courting their RW base, their negatives will rise. Look at Mitvch McConnell’s top guy quitting over a scandal!

adlib 7 days ago

I used to sell loose joints in Havard Square.

killgoretrout

7 days ago

Henry David probably didn’t have wifi, funk. True.

kesmarn

7 days ago

I went to a “Open House” that is a town hall on the Congressman’s own turf, his office has a large meeting room. No one was happy. No one.

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

What were they saying, Murph?

kesmarn

7 days ago

I may end up moving to Vancouver WA. Nice place.

killgoretrout

7 days ago

Silly I absolutely love where I live. Couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. The black depression and suicidal thoughts pass pretty quickly. Plus, we’ll be the only place in the country with any water in about 20 years

funksands

7 days ago

Murph–it’s a “throw the bums out” mentality, I think.

glenn

7 days ago

adl HAHAHA Mcturtle scandal. How fucking stupid is this one??

Harleigh

7 days ago

Funk – Maybe so up till this point but if Repubs want their base to turn out, they’ll have to spout nastiness and that will turn off indies.

adlib 7 days ago

Harleigh – he is so arrogant

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Ad, feels like a volcano slowly building.

funksands

7 days ago

ad – which is only good for us

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Kes…all over the place…that is what led to the comment to this…. Ad…..my own Congresman…older, GOP, been in the job a while….saw him last week….he knows me…only comment “What I would give for some real leadership on the Hill!”

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

Ad–didn’t read the article, but saw the healine that foxsocallednews is trying to revive Benghazi! Distraction from Ferguson, I guess.

glenn

7 days ago

Speaking of mugs, have you all seen Rick Perry’s mugshot?

killgoretrout

7 days ago

McConnell is being Mitch slapped.

adlib 7 days ago

LOL AD!

beatlex

7 days ago

I did, KT. His mouth was smiling but his eyes were shooting death rays.

kesmarn

7 days ago

silly I almost hate mcconnel he’s such a condescending asshole.

Harleigh

7 days ago

That prick actually had a shit eating grin on his face.

killgoretrout

7 days ago

Oh I hate him

funksands

7 days ago

Ad–hope mcconnell is mitch slapped from here to November, and then goes home!

glenn

7 days ago

😆 Homie! True.

killgoretrout

7 days ago

kt – he will be eating shit

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Nothing is going to happen to Perry. He’ll treat this like he just won his right-wing gang colors

funksands

7 days ago

Those covertly recorded comment at the Koch-fest aren’t going to do Mitch any good.

kesmarn

7 days ago

Murph – Saw that, I’m sure those Repubs who don’t want to bow down to the moron Baggers really pray for salvation…or something to keep them from having to sound like fellow morons. But that ain’t gonna happen.

adlib 7 days ago

You have all heard this: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/28/us/politics/on-tape-mcconnell-envisions-using-budget-to-undo-obama-initiatives.html?_r=0

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

kes…jinx

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

Mitch has had his “49%’ moment,I would love to see that old fart lose!

beatlex

7 days ago

That’s what I was referring to, Murph.

kesmarn

7 days ago

jinx indeed!

kesmarn

7 days ago

I think the GOP is behind Perry’s indictment. They really don’t want any more embarrassment with him in the 2016 race.

killgoretrout

7 days ago

All–you know what I don’t understand? Why doesn’t the twice, duly-elected President of the United States get to enact his agenda? Why is it only the repubs who are “entitled” to enact their agena?

glenn

7 days ago

glenn – Benghazi? Really? Great, go for it Repubs! Why not go after Jimmy Carter’s Presidency while you’re at it?

adlib 7 days ago

KT….the indictment is coming from GOP authorities…your idea is not far fetched.

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

I think they are going to run on Obama’s suit.

funksands

7 days ago

And Perry is so dumb. He doesn’t even know what he was indicted for. Said it was “bribery.” Either that or he’s confessing to yet another felony!

kesmarn

7 days ago

Ad–here in GA, they are going after Carter’s presidency since his grandson is running for gov.

glenn

7 days ago

funk – lol

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Exactly Homie. He really does make W. look smart.

killgoretrout

People in TX call him “Bush without the brain.”

kesmarn

adlib 7 days ago

ALL baggers are dumb. Never give a sucker an even break! In 2009 The Koch brothers through Dick Armey and his Freedumbwerks front created the Astro-turf Teabaggers. I’ve concluded that all Teabaggers are Koch’s suckers in an Army of Dick’s.

sillylittleme

Ad, well, the definition of “conservative”is never changing. That’s their “schtick” and they’re sticking with it. Another ad running here in GA is one I particularly like. It asks, “Michelle Nunn, Obama’s rubber stamp in the Senate?” Personally, I would vote for Nunn on that alone. I think it’s about time President Obama had a “rubber stamp” in Congress!

glenn

LOL OZ,Perry is a putz

Harleigh, yep, Baggers were a corporately bought “revolution” intended to exploit angry idiots to take government away from the majority.

Murph, it’s brilliant, isn’t it?, but a tad quick for my aging eyes!

pinkpantheroz

Many of you may not have heard that Perry and Gohmert were conjoined twins at birth and joined at the haid. When they were separated each got half a brain but Perry got all the hair.

Harleigh

I thought Repubs like rubber stamps, they all vote the same like them.

What’s funny about Congressional deadlock is that its given the executive branch all of the power to decide how to administer the nation’s business

killgoretrout

Murph – I’ve seen people try to minimize the case against Perry but I think this is another MSM meme where they say what they want to happen instead of what could. They want him running in 2016, he’s good for the MSM machine’s ad sales.

To me, it’s kind of a “whoop!”

“Yawp” is better.

sillylittleme

Funk–in one sentence the fox bimbo laid bare all of the gop’s hypocrisies (sp?). 1. a foreign born citizen CAN become president. 2. No mention of Congress; the putin can act alone. 3. Let’s have a real communist, tyrant dictatior in as president, instead of the “fake” one we have in President Obama. 4. Let’s bypass the Constitution, forget about elections and “get it done right”.

Jon Stewart showed it too, could these “patriots” be any more traitorous in their beliefs (which they are entitled to) than they already are? Rooting for a brutal, oppressive, warmongering tyrant to take over America? If anyone is still wondering how real Obama Derangement Syndrome is, this should settle that debate.

Murph, if Putin were in charge here, Guilfoyle wouldn’t be allowed to say anything Putin didn’t approve. These people are soooo stupid.

Will young black men be allowed in the former bowling alley, Murph?

Murph – It was a bit discouraging last week, this new chat was working so well for many but not for others, which would have been a deal killer. Now, it’s seem to have worked out!

adlib 7 days ago

Kes – Yes, we use an avatar caching system (along with other caching) to speed up the display of pages so that can delay new avatars from being displayed.

adlib 7 days ago

harleigh – did it work?

sillylittleme

Ad, that wasn’t your fault. Some of us had old software no longer supported by new stuff, but it’s fine now.

pinkpantheroz

7 days ago

But the new ones always did appear then.

kesmarn

Ad- yes….getting everybody on board during the week to play with it gave us the chance to figure out how it really works. Typical of so much soft ware…lack of clarity and direction.

murphthesurf3

oh st is here!!!!!

sillylittleme

Yep, there’s always a transition period with new systems, just glad that this worked out after the one that didn’t a couple of weeks ago.

adlib 7 days ago

Harleigh

harleigh – sorry here’s another doobie

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Kes–I saw that on another site and it just blew my mind! I hope he sues the police department for false arrest, since they have now dropped the charges.

glenn

7 days ago

Kes…the police as occupying force in post 9-11 world

murphthesurf3

So, do you think that the institutionalized racism and militirization of police will continue to move people or will they lose interest and leave all that in place?

adlib 7 days ago

adlib 7 days ago

Right, Murph. If this guy hadn’t had his cell phone with him, the story would have been buried.

kesmarn

7 days ago

We cannot let these incidents slide into the dustbin of American history, like so many other appalling things that are news for a week or two, then gone from the public forum.

killgoretrout

7 days ago

Murph–but they never said what he was suspected of.

glenn

Part of the GOP strategy is to keep tossing balls in the air…look, look, look, look, look

murphthesurf3

And collective memories.

killgoretrout

sillylittleme

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Question: when a cop asked you for ID, are you legally required to show it? If you’re not driving that is?

kesmarn

7 days ago

Murph–how can you charge disorderly condut when he was just sitting there?

glenn

7 days ago

SLM–suspicious demeanor=black

glenn

glenn – we have to be better than that

sillylittleme

SLM You know….slouching, shfty eyes, being dark skinned

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

murph – where are the better angels?

sillylittleme

7 days ago

Kes- if you do not produce an id they can continue questioning you for cause.

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

Kes–According to what I’ve read–no you are not required to show ID unless the cop has a reason to ask for it.

glenn

7 days ago

Homie, not without probable cause. The fourth amendment says “reasonable,” search and seizure. There was no good reason in this case for law enforcement to accost a man who was doing absolutely nothing wrong.

killgoretrout

7 days ago

Think about all the outrages that Americans just let slide. Trayvon Martin, Sandy Hook, Climate Change caused major droughts and natural disasters, Gabby Giffords, on and on. Are people just too seduced, oppressed, distracted and/or pacified by corporations that they just won’t rally together and stand strong for any period of time to force change or do things need to get really horrible first before they will?

adlib 7 days ago

SLM–You’re right–we have to be better than that, but so far we are not.

glenn

7 days ago

Glenn…it does not matter what he was actually doing….it is what they say he was doing.

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

So this guy was totally within his rights to refuse to give his name? I was thinking he would have been.

kesmarn

7 days ago

No Murph, not according to the 4th amendment. They need probable cause to even ask for ID.

killgoretrout

7 days ago

Ad…all of the above plus distracted, narcissistic, self absorbed, disconnected.

murphthesurf3

I saw part of a video (Georgia I think) and the cop’s dash cam showed the cops screaming at this guy to stop grabbing for his gun and the guy was standing there with his hands up in the air.

sillylittleme

A local sheriff I know is really pushing for the funding for two officers in every car…studies show that police teams act better than solos…the fear factor.

murphthesurf3

Cop cams MUST be mandatory for any police officer that deals directly with the public. They MUST be made mandatory. The police have proved, time and again, that they can’t even police themselves!

Kes–I was reading an article about cop cams which says that we also need the burden of proof on the cops to prove what they’re saying, “just in case” those cop cams get lost. IOW, when the cop cams are altered or lost, the cops have to prove thier case–not the defendant.

A few years ago, I was pulled over after work (late — about midnight) for a tail light that was out. The cop started asking me all sorts of questions: Where are you going? etc. I said “home.” And he responded: “Then why are you traveling in the opposite direction of what’s on your license?” I explained about the cottage. Then I kicked myself later for having answered his questions!

Kes–When I lived in FL, years ago, there was a rash of cops stopping women for no reason and doing “suspicious” things to them. I was stopped about 10 at night after coming home from a class for having only headlight. Didn’t know I only had one–and it was on a dark, deserted stretch of highway. I got asked the same questions, but decided it was better to answer than to argue and get pulled out of my car. But, my heart was beating a mile a minute, and I was extremely frightened.

Kes- I was pulled over two months ago – I went through a light that went red just as I passed through it….the town is a notorious trap. The officer was so matter of fact that it told me he was certain that I wouldjust pay the fine by mail I told him that I needed his badge number and car license for my record and it would be helpful if were to icude them on the ticket so I could refer to them in court. I also asked how I can get access to the traffic video record. He looked at me, paused and then aid, be careful and wnet back to his car. I suspect he realized I would actually show up in court and maybe with an attorney and that was too much trouble.

They made it clear that their tactics were hurting them. Morning marches, afternoon planning and rest, and then a rally before a later dinner…then home. That spurred the community leaders to develop a stronger poition on those who were the source of the disorder (that left the police to handle their own)

More conventional thinking from pundits, “Obama can’t be re-elected if unemployment isn’t below 7%.” “America’s not ready to elect a black President.” “Hillary is a shoe in to win the Dem primary in 2008, none of the other candidates is strong enough.” Don’t believe the MSM memes, they’re trying to sell Hillary as inevitable but they’re usually wrong if you look abck at their previous conclusions.

Well, Ad Lib I would say that the new Vox is a big hit.

Seeya Harleigh! Have a great holiday weekend!

Murph and PPO – It does seem to make Vox even more enjoyable. It’s nice when things work out!

adlib 7 days ago

Well, I’d better get going on my afternoon chores. Take care, everybody

Ad, Chuck Todd, the “new” host of MTP (Gregory with more stats in his head)….was on that Hillary’s got it recitation this morning.

Take care, PPO! Have a great rest of your day!

Night, or day, to you PPO.

Well, Ad…the frustrations of the first of the week did result in a good finish.

Chuck Todd, the guy who claims it’s not the job of the press to correct lies, that guy?

adlib 7 days ago

Murph – Appreciate your help in the beta testing of this system! Indeed, it didn’t look as likely earlier in the week, very pleased it’s all worked out.

adlib 7 days ago

Yes Ad, that guy….I read today that NBC has to have people like Gregory or Todd or they will be able to book from the right side of the continuum. I suspect this is so which makes me really ditrust Todd.

Ad…my pleasure as well. I am doing a lot of work with the founders of a new site called Yabberz and have been posting thumbnail links to our tuff over there as well.

And I am still in contact with HP…..interesting.

Murph – Yeah, maybe he’ll be able to get John McCain or Lindsay Graham on the show! Same old hack Repub guests, another hack host but less and less viewers which is the real problem. I can’t think of anyone who will watch that show now because of Todd. Watch, ratings will be flat then continue downward.

adlib 7 days ago

You’ll have to fill me in on what’s going on there.

adlib 7 days ago

Ad…from your lips to the rating gods ears.

Murph – Just seems logical. Another lousy hack hosting a show that will continue being a shill for Repubs. Why should its course change?

adlib 7 days ago

Happy to do so….a very unique model at Yabberz…and HP is discovering that while is numbers are up, its quality is way down and that is a point of hame for them (because it used to be a point of pride to be a site of high level discourse)

The HPRefugees came after me again in e mail…..I sent them the stats I had on them…and that seems to have silenced them.

Well, we knew that would happen. When you farm out the commenting to Facebook, you lose the loyal devotees who were the most prodigious and thought provoking. The only thing worse would have been farming it out to Twitter.

adlib 7 days ago

Heh! I’m sure they didn’t like having to face reality! BTW, I guarantee you their numbers have dropped bigger since then.

adlib 7 days ago

FB commenting…miserable structure and a poor platform.

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

HP kept moving away from conversations and simply put, if what people write isn’t worthy of conversation, it won’t be written. Why invest a lot of thought into such a disposable comment?

adlib 7 days ago

HP’s click counts are way up. The move did what they wanted in expanding the social network. They know they now look like fb in the commenting sections and apparently the powers that be are not pleaed. Oh well.

Time to slink into my cocoon…..I am going up to Ferguson tomorrow for a meeting. Fingers crossed.

murphthesurf3

Murph – A hollow but financially rewarding result. They now may be worth more financially but they are worth less in substance.

adlib 7 days ago

Good way to put it.

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

Good luck, Murph. Please fill us in on it tomorrow!

adlib 7 days ago

Sleep well and have a great holiday weekend, Murph!

adlib 7 days ago

I can probably refer to it but nothing specific….there is a real sense of panic in both the black and white community there about the town’s future.

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

I can understand that. The denial and desperation in the “I Love Ferguson” campaign doesn’t bode well for the town. If they can’t all agree there’s a problem, there’s a bigger problem.

adlib 7 days ago

Property values…that is the key and the signs are that the middle class blacks will run first.

murphthesurf3

7 days ago

That’s disappointing but not surprising when they’re in the middle, between denialist and some racist whites and poorer blacks who demand activist change.

adlib 7 days ago

Many of them have been through this two or three times….their experience tells them that those who run first get teh most money.

murphthesurf3

Again Murph, if it’s all about money, they could be right and have more money than those who stay to help the town they claim to support. But there’s sacrifice involved and most people who would have to, don’t seem to be willing to make sacrifices as much lately.

adlib 7 days ago

Truth. Still. How many times can people afford to be burned. Thanks for all of the hard work finding something exciting and new for the gang here at our neighborhood blog.

murphthesurf3

We should chat soon…

I get it, it’s not an easy choice but who’s going to step up for the community over themselves? Thanks for all of your help too! Always nice to be able to spruce up the joint!

adlib 7 days ago

cheers! sunglasses

murphthesurf3

Absolutely. Sleep well!
