sillylittleme

just about all well. Crist kind of cheated by using a sneaky subversive stealth plastic fan! I laughed my ass off at that fool.
Harleigh

17 hours ago
a liberal fan at that!
Harleigh

17 hours ago
crist was a fool? I thought skeletor was being a brat…
sillylittleme

17 hours ago
that was sarcasm. skeletor is the worst and even his baggers left early out of embarrassment.
Harleigh

17 hours ago
I guess I’m not stoned enough to recognize sarcasm…
sillylittleme

sillylittleme

You sure gave me a great link with Alley Oop. I posted all over the Creation Park stories abou Mat, Mar, Luke, John and Zeke riding their dinosawas around the ME jungles tearing limbs off of trees.
Harleigh

17 hours ago
Jebus rode with Alley Oop!!
Harleigh

17 hours ago
is zeke one of the lost gospels?
sillylittleme

17 hours ago
lol well it’s short for Ezekiel… not sure what he did or what kind of dino he rode.
Harleigh

17 hours ago
poor jebus tried to warn his own people and has his words perverted instead
sillylittleme

17 hours ago
Yeah and now look at the place, even the jungles are gone.
Harleigh

17 hours ago
ezekiel would have been long dead when the other guys were around, unless you think he came back just to ride the dinos. lol
sillylittleme

17 hours ago
I had no idea that there were so many anglo saxons around there thousands of year before they were invented! lol
Harleigh

17 hours ago
shhh, don’t tell anyone but they were all joos
sillylittleme

wonder what they’d think of ogres…

sillylittleme

17 hours ago
It would have become a religion like the Flinstones is a documentary to those dimwits.
Harleigh

17 hours ago
well considering that they think ozzie and harriet were happily married and their sons were “clean cut”, what can you expect
sillylittleme

17 hours ago
LMAO the women on those old shows never worked and wore white gloves and chiffon dresses to do housework. amazing
Harleigh

17 hours ago
yes and nothing was out of place and no dust to be seen, so realistic (eyeroll)
sillylittleme

17 hours ago
I had to actually watch all of those old shows in the 1955 -1975 era, on all 3 channels!
Harleigh

17 hours ago
I’m old and thats all that was on.
Harleigh

17 hours ago
I remember watching, um, reruns. we didn’t get a color tv until the red sox were in the world series in ’76, the old b&w died and we had to run out in the middle of the game to buy a tv. something dad would only do because he couldn’t miss out on another failed attempt to see them win the WS. thankfully he was alive to see the first win, unfortunately he had passed by the time the red sox won the second one
sillylittleme

Hey all!
adlib 17 hours ago
hey ad
sillylittleme

17 hours ago
wow. My dad worked for Ford in Dearborn MI and brought home a tv in 1954. it was big and heavy and a friend helped him with it and put up the outdoor antenna. The first thing on was a Lions game vs the Rams in CA! They both declared something so amazing would really be big! Bigger than radio even!!

sillylittleme

My dads dadwas a irrigation engineer up around Aspen CO before it was there! LOL He told his workers that someday folks wou be buying water from stores by the gallon! They laughed about that for a long time.
Harleigh

sillylittleme

16 hours ago
Good evening, Ad, PPO SLM, and Harleigh. How is everyone tonight?
glenn

SLM–Funny you should ask about what wonderful things I did this week. I went to the Paul McCartney concert Wednesday night! FAB!
glenn

16 hours ago
glenn – that must have been fun
sillylittleme

OK. I just sitting here filling out tons of early voting ballots. LOL
Harleigh

I wasn’t going to attend Vox this evening because Harleigh is using a fan.

harleigh – don’t tell skeletor
sillylittleme

glenn – How cool! Sounds like so much fun!
adlib 16 hours ago
glenn – that vegetarian lifestyle certainly hasn’t hurt…
sillylittleme

16 hours ago
LMAO a secret illegal stealth electronic fan!
Harleigh

16 hours ago
Harleigh–hmmm…multiple ballots and a fan! You must be a Democrat!
glenn

16 hours ago
No getting by you on than Glenn! LOL
Harleigh

16 hours ago
Harleigh – The section said no electronic equipment including fans. A fan is considered an electronic device?
adlib 16 hours ago
it cracks me up that people can confuse electric with electronic, reminds me of the guy who thought the internet was a series of tubes
sillylittleme

16 hours ago
Harleigh–Nothing gets by me, I tell ya!
glenn

16 hours ago
LOL pipes and tubes Ted Stevens
Harleigh

16 hours ago
Ad–My daugher went with me, and she texted my brother and sister tha I was “reliving my yout” (and yes, I left the “h” out on purpose).
glenn

Laska is such a wunnerful place.
Harleigh

SLM–exactly. Loved that movie!
glenn

16 hours ago
hey murph how’re things by you?
sillylittleme

16 hours ago
glenn – Heh! Reliving your yout indeed!
adlib 16 hours ago
Harleigh, I do love a good seafood Laksa!
pinkpantheroz

16 hours ago
Haleigh–doesn’t Laska have that porous border between stupid and offensive?
glenn

16 hours ago
So are we agreed, Obama is responsible for Ebola, ISIS and Climate Change?
adlib 16 hours ago
I tried to get back to my yout so my wife said to me let’s run upstairs and have sex! I told her, one or the other, I can’t do both.

Did anyone else beside me get the irony in Trump saying POTUS is psycho?!
pinkpantheroz

Ad–Of course, Obama is also responsible for broccoli and spinach!
glenn

murphthesurf3

Kes–Good for you. Serious research indeed.
glenn

I really don’t, SLM, but I’ve always loved ghost stories.
kesmarn

Murph–glad you’re here.
glenn

sillylittleme

16 hours ago
Well I have seen some strange happenings in my time, but I was probably drunk and stoned back then.
Harleigh

16 hours ago
SLM…narrow the field please
murphthesurf3

16 hours ago
Stephen King is in a class by himself, though!
kesmarn

16 hours ago
Beatlex–so I was telling the early Voxxers that I went to see one of your BFFs this week. Went to see Sir Paul in concert. It was fabulous!
glenn

murph – ferguson specifically
sillylittleme

16 hours ago
I heard some pudnuts this week saying that Obama is terrible becuse he is failing at running the CDC, at running the military and at running Obamacare (you see, the website rollout disaster is all that matters). First, Presidents don’t run departments and second, Bush was better?
adlib 16 hours ago
Really, glenn! That’s great! Was there a huge crowd?
kesmarn

16 hours ago
SLM…ah….it is a mess…..a real mess and I remain deeply worried.
murphthesurf3

murph – any gotv efforts there?
sillylittleme

16 hours ago
Did anyone see our GOP PM Abbott threatening to ‘shirtfront’ Putin at the G20 talks in Brisbane coming up? the poor deluded fool thinks he’s a power in the world. He wants to confront him about the Aussie lives lost over Ukraine, bu I don’t think grabbing him by the shirt is a prudent thing to threaten to a black-belt Judo Instructor!
pinkpantheroz

16 hours ago
Oh and isn’t Obama responsible for that really bad sandwich I had on Monday?
adlib 16 hours ago
AdLib, can’t we call Rick Perry “weak and incompetent” because he failed to “seal the border” around Texas and let that nurse escape to Ohio? Or doesn’t it work the other way around?
kesmarn

16 hours ago
SLM…police, bs pols, not much positive at all.
murphthesurf3

16 hours ago
Kes–yup, it was a sold out crowd. Mainly because it was only one night, and it was a concert that had been postponed from June.
glenn

16 hours ago
murph – sad to hear
sillylittleme

16 hours ago
kes – iokiyar
sillylittleme

16 hours ago
So how’s old Sir Paul lookin’ these days (and sounding)?
kesmarn

16 hours ago
We had all better pray that an indictment come down from the not-so-grand jury or there will be hellfire and damnation
murphthesurf3

16 hours ago
Glenn! So cool! I am glad you enjoyed it,he still can put on a great show at 72.This is a BEATLE we are talking about!
beatlex

16 hours ago
PPO – You know how it is with big talkers, they just want everyone around them to be impressed. When they get there, he’ll probably be nervously sweating and bowing to Putin.
adlib 16 hours ago
Murph, when do you expect to hear about the indictment?
kesmarn

16 hours ago
AD–Of course Obama is failing at all of those things. When you vote to make sure the government doesn’t work, then de-fund everything the government is supposed to do, you set up the President for “failure”, or “failure” in their eyes, at least. And, I thought we were supposed to have “limited” government; so why should the government get involved in any of those things?
glenn

16 hours ago
Ad, you got it. He’ll be brown-nosing with the best of them!
pinkpantheroz

16 hours ago
Kes–good questions about Perry!
glenn

it’s a pastafarian thing…
sillylittleme

16 hours ago
Kes – Exactly, neither Perry nor Bush can be blamed for anything because Repubs are never responbsible for the bad things that happen due to their actions. Just Dems. They’re still blaming FDR and Jimmy Carter yet anyone who blames Bush for the disasters we’re still living through are mocked.
adlib 16 hours ago
Argh! I shoulda known that one!
kesmarn

16 hours ago
I love how Crash Mclame wants an ebola czar but not a surgeon general WTF?
Harleigh

I’m a pastafarian
Harleigh

16 hours ago
harleigh the sad part is we got one and not the other. please tell me how a lawyer is appropriate for a health crisis?
sillylittleme

16 hours ago
Kes–He looks surprisingly well. But then again, I’ve always been a fan of his. Mixed bag on how he sounds. He can still “belt out” the rock songs; a couple of “stretches” on some of the early Beatle ballads. However, the beauty of those early Beatle songs, IMO, was the harmony between Lennon and McCartney, so when you lose one part of that; it’s not going to be the same. It was very close, though.
glenn

Some major gaps in history there, AdLib. But then they’re known to revise history — and science as well. Not to mention Christianity and the Constitution.

TWO GOP BUSINESSMEN RESCUE LOCAL DEMS CAMPAIGN OPERATION….Here is some news related to my article from the front page- 2 local GOP stepped up with 20 grand each to keep us going BECAUSE THEY WANT MEDICAID EXPANSION…both have businesses with lots of part timers at minimum wage and they want their workers to stay healthy AND they have some sense of how unfair it all is. My person has NO chance of winning but at least we can remain in the public eye raising the issue.
murphthesurf3

16 hours ago
SLM–the explanation I read on why a lawyer and not a doctor is that it’s more of a PR and coordination job than it is a medical one. We have the CDC and the NIH to make to medical decisions. We need someone to manage the “fear factor” being manufactured by the rwnjobs.
glenn

16 hours ago
SLM it was a beautiful thing
Harleigh

16 hours ago
Now that is an amazing story, Murph! Talk about strange bedfellows.
kesmarn

kesmarn

16 hours ago
Murph–Jon Stewart had a piece on the other night about repubs in KS uniting with Dems to oust Brownback beause his “experiment” in government has failed. The repub, a former State Senator, was saying that deficits, no infrastruture, downgrading of Kansas’ credit, etc. can all be laid at the feet of Brownback, and it’s time for repubs to stop it! Did my heart good!
glenn

16 hours ago
Hey Sabreen!
glenn

16 hours ago
Murph, that’s very cool to hear and whatever the results of this election, I think we’ll see more and more Repubs drifting over to the Dems for sensible reasons like that and the economic threat of stagnant wages to retailing corporations.
adlib 16 hours ago
Ad–now that’s not true. We all know how “physic” gwb was he said Sadaam had WMDs.
glenn

murphthesurf3

16 hours ago
Ohio has that “special” day for Repub voting too, Harleigh. What a coincidence.
kesmarn

16 hours ago
Murph, et al–An update on the New Georgia Project that registered about 85,000 voters. Seems about two weeks the NGP checked to see if their registrations had been counted, and that about 40,000 of them were not showing up. So, then the national organization, Lawyers for Civil Rights sued the GA SOS, and lo and behold, most of those 40,000 registrations are now on the rolls. Now, if only those people actually vote, we might have a chance to have a Democratic governor and one Democratic Senator. However, since we have a republican majority in the State Legislature, if we do get a Democratic governor, he may have the same problems President Obama does.

sillylittleme

16 hours ago
Murph – I think that scenario you described and the downward projections of many corporations due to wage inequity, tell an important story. Even more so, the Brownback Syndrome is what we’re looking at. Given enough rope in terms of political power, Repubs will hang everyone out to dry including corporations because their “theories” are all anti-intellectual and destructive. So what will corporations do as their bottom lines are harmed by Republican economics?
adlib 16 hours ago
Kes–yes, very convenient! Of course, you know according to the SOS, it was a frivolous lawsuit!

Funny…we don’t seem to be hearing much about that lawsuit against the Prez from Agent Orange here in Ohio. Maybe because the law firm they hired quit?

Harleigh–surely there’s an analogy/metaphor/or something in the statement, “Boner should be hung up the flagpole.” stuck_out_tongue
glenn

16 hours ago
glenn – That is very good news and I heard about the missing registrations, 40k of them. What enormous hypocrites these Repubs are as they BS about Voter ID bringing “trust and integrity” back to elections…while working full time to rig elections!
adlib 16 hours ago
SLM you are probably correct
Harleigh

SLM–and there it is!

Right, SLM. I read that the legal firm decided not to go with the suit. I can’t imagine they’ll find another one to take the job. Unless there’s a mafia mouthpiece who’s looking for a couple extra bucks.
kesmarn

A mafia lawyer might be offended by the lack of ethics in the GOP though…
kesmarn

Kes, Mafia, GOP. Mafia GOP. I’ll take Mafia.
pinkpantheroz

16 hours ago
Ad–the ironic/stupid thing about all of those “missing” registrations is Kemp, the SOS issued a subpoena to the New Georgia Project for them to hand over all of their documents. This was before the missing registrations were discovered by the NGP because they kept such meticilous records.
glenn

16 hours ago
Me too, PPO!
kesmarn

16 hours ago
Murph – The wealthy and corporations aren’t all in the same boat, they’ve been thinking that they are but they’re not. The consumer driven corporations are heading for trouble while the Wall Streeters make money betting for and against the other corporations. I see a real split forming.
adlib 16 hours ago
kes – ya i think its even too ridiculous for them
sillylittleme

16 hours ago
Beatlex–I would give Boner an Italian salute!

glenn

murph – monopoly was developed as a game to get the citizenry to understand the damage that comes with concentrating wealth at the top. point being that when one person has all the money, the game ends. works in the real world too
sillylittleme

16 hours ago
Kes–sadly, I don’t find it ironic at all. I find it typical of repub “governance”, especially if it screws poor people, especially people of color.
glenn

16 hours ago
Murph – Good to hear that brokers are recognizing that too. But as I say, you have two different camps in the 1% and corporations so the camp that is not directly affected by the declining consumer spending will continue their greedy ways whole corporations that are retail oriented will be pulling in another direction. Look at the corporations joining the bandwagon on raising the minimum wage. I think that trickle will grow to a torrent as quarterly profits continue to decline from expectations.
adlib 16 hours ago
SLM…is that true. Monopoly- I always saw it as a game that lifted up the millionaire real estate culture.

Murph – I don’t agree. Many establishment Repubs remember what happened when they impeached Clinton, helped him and hyrt them, they don’t want an impeachment. And any vote to repeal the ACA will be vetoed. And don’t be surprised to see Dems filibustering up a storm in the Senate. I hope that leads Repubs to curb the filibuster so that if Dems take back the Senate in 2016 (not saying they will lose it this year though), Repubs will have cut their own throats on filibustering. Looking at the long run, it may be best for Repubs to take over the Senate at a time when they can only harm themselves while anything they pass will be vetoed.

A couple of people have contracted Ebola. That’s not an outbreak or an emergency! Here are some facts about a real deadly outbreak that these same whining Repubs have blocked our having a Surgeon General over: — Every year in the U.S., an average of more than 100,000 people are shot, according to The Brady Campaign To Prevent Gun Violence. Every day in the U.S., an average of 289 people are shot. Eighty-six of them die: 30 are murdered, 53 kill themselves, two die accidentally, and one is shot in a police intervention, the Brady Campaign reports. Between 2000 and 2010, a total of 335,609 people died from guns — more than the population of St. Louis, Mo. (318,069), Pittsburgh (307,484), Cincinnati, Ohio (296,223), Newark, N.J. (277,540), and Orlando, Fla. (243,195) (sources: CDF, U.S. Census; CDC) One person is killed by a firearm every 17 minutes, 87 people are killed during an average day, and 609 are killed every week.

Harleigh…..my brother in law, an Shell oil land use specialist says that the plunge in oil prices reflects a paradigm shift and that the end for big oil is coming much faster than they thought. Shell’s largest division now is alternative eergy systems.

slm – I think materialism should be ancillary, it’s a nice thing that comes from a society doing the right things for the people. But what really matters, what we should be working for is something better and bigger than ourselves and what we can buy.

I remember when oil spiked to $105 a barrel and gas SHOT up to $1.25. Now its like $92 and gas is still $3.20. Don’t quite add up using all their old arguments huh?

Did you hear about Lockheed Martin announcing that they had a fusion generator they are developing? Many are justifiably skeptical but if fusion generators came to fruition, the oil market, the wars in the ME, Climate Change, so much could change so quickly.

Harleigh – Exactly, the oil companies lie so hugely about the way things work, they claim to support the free market but they operate criminally in the way they manipulate gas prices. They’re so low, someone could drill for them.

murph – most alternatives will make homes independent, with homes selling back to the community to light the streets,etc. Those in rural areas probably have enough land to never be on a grid again. So will TN be forgiven their debt or are we gonna keep collecting that?

Murph – I will hold off for a bit in fully believing LM, could be a ploy to push up share prices, so many have lied about having a workable design for fusion. But if that did happen, it would create a new kind of energy revolution, so much will be able to be created when there is such enormous and cheap power.

Murph – When you really think about it, Obama’s last 2 years would be pretty much the same whether Repubs controlled the Senate or not…because they control it via filibuster right now anyway. I think he will strike out on his own with more profound EOs.

slm – That’s the thing about fusion generators, once you set them, they go for a very long time so charging a lot for the power isn’t rational and states should regulate it as they do electric power so the cost shouldn’t be much at all.

I forgot to leave my inspirational management advice! The point is, moving forward, at the end of the day, the bottom line, is to think outside of the box, towards our identifiable goals, within the established operational parameters.
