I can only imagine.
Harleigh

Brilliant pre-emptive strike from POTUS has left the GOP floundering in a vacuum of no policies on Immigration. Good for him!

And they cannot do a thing until after thanksgiving vacation and them BAM!! it’s the war on xmas vacation. LOL

Now that cat is poppin up everywhere!

pinkpantheroz

Harleigh – This chat software translates text into emoticons and a 3 with a colon equals that cat!
adlib 7 days ago
It should know where the litter box is!!!
Harleigh

7 days ago
I like it, I have 4 indoor and 12 or so outdoor cats.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Colons are the handle for emoticons, anything right next to one gets translated if it’s a code. Try the word “wink” with colons at the front and back.
adlib 7 days ago
wink
adlib 7 days ago
Let’s see what other colon/numbers bring….. colon/one = :1

PPO – Click on the icon button at the far right of the text entry box, click on an icon then you’ll see the translation in your text box.
adlib 7 days ago
Murph! In da House! You getting responses?
pinkpantheroz

Hey Murph!

brb grabbing a cuppa
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
all things considered I would rather be here than in Buffalo, NY
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh – I’m not saying anything about the weather here in LA.
adlib 7 days ago
Which is saying something anyway I suppose.
adlib 7 days ago
70’s here tonite
Harleigh

7 days ago
Yep, way too nice out this way, really rotten weather in most of the nation.
adlib 7 days ago
Especially in DC where an avalanche of BS has trapped the entire Republican Congress.
adlib 7 days ago
happens every winter. I’m shocked.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Instead of threatening to go after Obama, this is actually what Boehner should have said to the rest of the GOP after Obama issued his EO protecting 4-5 million immigrants:

adlib 7 days ago
they are really gonna have to dig to get out of this one. Here is a list of everything they got plus Ryan’s budget; 1. . . . . 2. . . . . That’s all I could come up with.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Or maybe Boehner should have taken his cue from their party’s most recent leader:

adlib 7 days ago
is our children learning?
Harleigh

7 days ago
Bonher should have turned the Speaker job over to Bachmann when he had the chance. Now it’s on him and he can’t blame jebus
Harleigh

7 days ago
Did you all see Obama in Nevada today? The crowd began chanting “Sí se puede” The Hopey, Changey guy was on his game.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Harleigh – They won this recent election without having any other agenda then “Doesn’t Obama suck?”. Now, when they control Congress, every action they take will be to pursue that one agenda. I know Dems didn’t really turn out but how dumb do Repubs have to be to elect them and simultaneously think something that will be good for them will come out of it?
adlib 7 days ago
Isn’t the GOP/TP/1% between a rock and a hard place, condemnig Obama’s actions, yet retaining all those low-paid workers?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
lowest turnout since 1942. fucking pitiful.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Murph – Yes, it was fantastic and Obama is now free to aggressively help Americans as best he can through EOs…and Americans will be grateful, his ratings will go up and as the Repub Congress does nothing but spend their time attacking him, theirs will go down. Attacking Latinos before 2016 is just the kind of self-destructive act we should expect from the party of nihilism.
adlib 7 days ago
Ad, make it so!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Good news…NBC ratings with Chuck Todd has now fallen back to third place behind “This Week” and “Face the Nation.” after a one week run at second. Todd got a tiny little pump. Good.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
by 2016 they won’t be able to afford to put air in the tires under their homes.
Harleigh

7 days ago
evening all, the Rs have no game, except to take the ball and go home. whiney steve king, he have something to say today? or is his vacation week begun?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Consider the GOP’s main talking point, “We want immigration reform but since Obama did something about it after we wouldn’t do anything about it for a year, we’re gonna take our bat and ball and go home!” For most 2016 voters, that’s going to be pretty offensive.
adlib 7 days ago
GOP = Gone Off Planet!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
spot on pink!! thumbsup
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Ad….I agree with your assessment….the GOP leadership has been clear- no gov. shutdown, no impeachment….to both outsiders and insiders…they know they cannot.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Hey slm! You beat me to it on the bat and ball! Great minds and all that!
adlib 7 days ago
yup ad and my experiment with the colon – :2:

PPO – GOP: Goofy Old Pharts
adlib 7 days ago
never trust a phart!
Harleigh

Ad – GOP= Geriatric Old Pricks
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Murph – Did you see that Todd did an interview with Newsmax, singing with their choir on how awful Obama is? Thrilled that he will go down the drain with MTP.
adlib 7 days ago
GOP – Grandstanding Odoriferous Putzes
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Todd is GAWD Awful…boot his whiney ass off the air..bring back Schuster! smiling_imp
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Murph – that would be a much better fit
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph – Yet with their 2016 Primary, the way that the candidates will fight for the lead is to demand impeachment of Obama and all kinds of extremist actions and Boehner, McConnell and the GOP establishment will be in a big fight with them and the Baggers they will whip up. Boehner has never said no to the lunatics when they jump on him, I see a civil war and self-destruction on the horizon.
adlib 7 days ago
Don’t watch it anymore, Murph. And he mustn’t have a chin, or else he’d lose that shrubbery.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
I too think the GOP could find out that this victory IS the bad news that I wrote about here.
murphthesurf3

GOP – Gomers On Psychmeds
adlib 7 days ago
GOP – Got Our Period! Explains a lot.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
GOOF OLD and PROUD GOP, GOP, GOP!
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
watch it pink, I’ve never been that bad even during the worst of periods
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph – Agree with your post and the Repub who wrote the piece it’s based on. To consider that the Dems could very well have up to 270 electoral votes locked up for 2016? Wow! And the point was well made, deeper but not wider Repub support, only in red states they already dominate.
adlib 7 days ago
GOOFY OLD and PROUD say it LOUD…..
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Gormless Old Perverts. Evening all, on a short break from sunbathing.
kalima

7 days ago
Ad….yes that piece makes a case, but my reference was to the older won in which I laid out the likely battle between the GOP institutionalists and the radicals.
murphthesurf3

GOP: Greasy Old Psychos

slm, Much worse if you get one, and you’re a bloke! smiley

Hey Kalima! Watch that tan!

pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
murph – we need more than the presidency, while they destroy state after state, the federal gov will have to keep stepping in
sillylittleme

7 days ago
pink – going to change your pad?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM..for us to win in the states, we need Dems who are paying attention and are disciplined to vote the party in every single election.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
kalima in/kalima out, get some vitamin D
sillylittleme

7 days ago
It was a fancy way of saying I’m emptying the cat hair from my Dyson.
kalima

7 days ago
Murph – Gotcha! They are inter-related though, aren’t they? With RW Repubs trying to dig deeper for the core instead of wider for indies and conservative Dems, they will be in a head on collision with the Estab Repubs who know they need to make inroads with the more moderate voters, women and minorities. These two trajectories mean a crash is inevitable.
adlib 7 days ago
murph – we need dems to run that aren’t repub lite
sillylittleme

7 days ago
hey choice
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Kalima – Yes but you’re doing that on the French Riviera, right?
adlib 7 days ago
Hey, speaking of the Immigrant stay of deportation (and not amnesty, like Reagan did) – today hardly any Fox coverage and the usual red blogs were quiet, the GOP in the House left town early and the suit announced today is about ACA….hhhhhmmmmm
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Hi everone and SLM – nice to see everyone.
choicelady

7 days ago
Ad….agreed…I expect lots of recesses come January….Boehner had to do it (and again today)…McConnell will have to do the same…leaving the governing to Obama.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Murph – the suit against ACA is a tad worrisome, but all the president has to do is enforce the employer mandate and… Gowdy. Hmmm. Anyone who can’t find a good barber might not be strong on the law.
choicelady

7 days ago
murph – steve king was complaining yesterday that the president timed his speech knowing that they would be gone for a week long thanksgiving holiday.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph – If you saw the Star Wars video I posted above, “It’s a trap!” And the Repubs have already fallen into it though many Repubs are scared about what that means so they’re trying to mute themselves…but the Baggers won’t let it go!
adlib 7 days ago
SLM – The president probably did do that. So what? They didn’t HAVE to go drinking – uh, go home to loved ones.
choicelady

7 days ago
Hey CL! All well your way?
adlib 7 days ago
SLM….they were supposed to be in session until Tuesday.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
AdLib – good to see you, and NO things are very chaotic here. Lots of the homeless folks are ill. I feel like a demented Clara Barton. So I again won’t stay long.
choicelady

7 days ago
AdLib – sorry – how are YOU?
choicelady

7 days ago
Choice…the HOuse ACA suit seems week, the one in the SCOTUS is more troubling but I cannot see Roberts falling on his sword.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
choice – the fact still stands that they could have changed their plans and left town today instead. who gets a week off for thanksgiving? and are they taking two weeks for christmas and new years? they have no right to complain
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph – It’s kind of funny, actually. “This President is acting like an Emperor! He’s trying to run the country without Congress! We’re suing him and maybe impeaching him for trying to take our power away in running the country too. By the way, we’re going on vacation now! Be back soon!”
adlib 7 days ago
Murph – it is my understanding (not necessarily accurate) that the system would work with just 38 states since we’d have neither input or output in the twelve. Sigh. That means you folks, sorry.
choicelady

7 days ago
Ad…yes “it’s a trap” followed by all the ships scattering….look there’s the Starship Cruz!
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
ad – if only their supporters could read what you wrote…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
AdLib -you have the GREATEST way of parodying the GOP! That is EXACTLY what they’re doing!
choicelady

7 days ago
CL – Can we catch up next week? Would like to know what’s going on.
adlib 7 days ago
AdLib – nothing yet. I’m tracking newbies to find someone to peddle it to. I have a very weak sense of their interests until Dec. when they all show up and declare. So it will be at least 2 weeks before I can find new blood. So to speak…
choicelady

7 days ago
Choice….I almost hope that the SCOTUS does as you suggest…..the fury here would be fantastic…..
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
cl – the sad thing is it isn’t a parody…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph – yes, but I am sorry all the dipshits were more afraid of looking like a N lover than having care about their health insurance.
choicelady

7 days ago
SLM – no, but he SAYS it so GREAT! They try to pretend they have gravitas when they are the Stooges.
choicelady

7 days ago
Murph – It is the SCOTUS that will destroy itself if it gives any legitimacy to that BS lawsuit. The House has no standing to sue and if Roberts lets them, it will cause a Constitutional crisis because Obama should not accept whatever ruling they make. Then Roberts has destroyed all credibility of the SCOTUS. Nope, it’s not going anywhere.
adlib 7 days ago
Choice…I have not been very nice about this whole thing with friends and neighbors who got insured and voted GOP.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Sorry about that, Saturday morning madness. Take care and be good. Ja ne.
kalima

7 days ago
Murph – NO DAMNED REASON TO BE NICE.
choicelady

7 days ago
Cl – Thanks so much!
adlib 7 days ago
kalima – thank you for your Fifth Anniversary edition! I can’t believe you’ve kept this going so long. Brava!!! Good to see you however briefly.
choicelady

7 days ago
AdLib – I’m keepin’ on keepin’ on. Just gets weird when newbies arrive.
choicelady

7 days ago
bye kalima mazel tov on the 5th
sillylittleme

7 days ago
No, thank you all for being a part of it. Must dash.
kalima

7 days ago
Murph – Or as Ted Cruz might be alled in Bizarro Star Wars, “The Death (of the GOP) Star”.
adlib 7 days ago
AdLib – LOL!!! Cruz is the Death Star isn’t he!!!
choicelady

7 days ago
CL – Got it. The wheels sure turn slowly in the land of Legislatures and Lobbys but they do turn.
adlib 7 days ago
Just a matter of time before his fifteen minutes are up…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Did anyone see Steve Schmidt go ballistic last night? I read he’s just signed on to work Perry 2016 campaign. That’s HIS death star!
choicelady

7 days ago
CL….Schmidt was beside himself…what do you think that was about?
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
AdLib – I may have a chance to see Kathay soon. Pressure will be on.
choicelady

7 days ago
Murph – he has to pretend he’s outraged if he’s to work for Perry’s presidential (those two words together – ugh) campaign!
choicelady

7 days ago
Seeya Kalima! Have a wonderful day!
adlib 7 days ago
CL…I think he was pissed not originally but as he got push back from that spunky little Hayes nerd.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Hello Planeteers!
sabreen60

7 days ago
Ad…Kalima was here?
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
hey sabreen
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph – well, who wouldn’t? Chris sets my teeth on edge and I met him, talked w him and have a mutual friend w him. He still grates. But I think that was Steve’s distancing from libruls for Perry folks.
choicelady

7 days ago
CL – Good, hope she’ll be able to really get behind HOPE at this point. And just after the elections, maybe more legislators would be more likely to want to support that?
adlib 7 days ago
Hey, sabreen, slm
pinkpantheroz

schmidt has been a has been since sarah plain and tall
sillylittleme

7 days ago
AdLib – I am now at the point after 13 years in this job when I’m calling in chips. Even with Kathay.
choicelady

7 days ago
CL…I kind of like Chris…I think he got under Schmidts skin…and when Rachel did not give him cover he was really annoyed.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Hey Sabreen! Evenin’!
adlib 7 days ago
SLM – and here I thought it was Sarah Short and Slutty. But hey – that’s just me.
choicelady

7 days ago
choice – no that’s me smiling_imp
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Is Sabreen in the house??? My ID side is not showing her – so HI FRIEND!!!
choicelady

7 days ago
SLM – My kinda woman. I was, too. Once.
choicelady

7 days ago
Ms. CL, I am indeed in the house blush
sabreen60

7 days ago
There’s a slide on the ID, choice
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO – I know – it’s not showing everyone tonight. Go figure…
choicelady

7 days ago
OK – Sabreen just showed up!!!
choicelady

7 days ago
yep, didn’t see Kalima all night, but she was here.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Just consider how much of a hack Schmidt is to be jumping onto Rick Perry’s campaign. Really? Rick Perry? That brilliant, sophisticated, respected and not-being-prosecuted-for-corruption politician? Schmidt went from McCain to Perry? What a lousy hack.
adlib 7 days ago
Hey Ms. Queen – always wonderful to see you!
choicelady

7 days ago
AdLib – that’s what I hear about Schmidt, yes. Listen – politics is a nasty biz. People whore for almost anyone who will pay.
choicelady

7 days ago
Schmidt was brought into make McCain’s campaign stink a bit less and he gave us Palin…
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
ad – he likes working with intellectuals, not!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph – Yep, scroll back, Kalima was here for just a little bit. So nice to see her here!
adlib 7 days ago
Thanks CL. Glad to be here. Wasn’t sure I’m make it. Got a flu shot last Friday for the first time in my life. Tuesday woke up and couldn’t lift my arm. The pain was off the charts worried
sabreen60

7 days ago
Murph – the real fool behind Sarah was William Kristol, but Steve got to ‘own’ it. He stayed. He got paid. What more can I say about the term ‘whore’?
choicelady

7 days ago
Good luck to Perry, then, seeing how Schmidt won the Presidency for Crash McCain!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
CL – Who but a political whore would go to work for Rick Perry?
adlib 7 days ago
Sabreen!!! that’s horrible – never heard of that happening! Mine was pretty bad last year, but that is AWFUL! Are you OK now?
choicelady

7 days ago
If Steve is working for Perry after working for Sarah, I’d say he pretty much is an idiot.
sabreen60

7 days ago
Sabreen – I’d agree about Steve.
choicelady

7 days ago
sabreen and choice – me too
sillylittleme

7 days ago
am I the only one disgusted that the ’16 campaign is already underway?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
CL, I talked with a nurse who said she’s getting calls about this. I need stay away from the Google because I was reading horror stories. Yesterday, for the first time I could lift my arm above my head. I was icing and taking pain killers all week. So I’m better, but not 100%.
sabreen60

7 days ago
Schmidt has to know that there’s a zero percent chance of Perry winning the Presidency. Prostitutes can’t be picky though, just show them a stack of bills and they’ll work on your Rick…Perry campaign.
adlib 7 days ago
SLM, I think the days of no campaign at all are long gone.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Choice- when Schmidt admitted he knew how awful Palin was AND he still stayed with the campaign he told me ALL I need to know about him.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
OMG – I am SO sorry Sabreen! Where did you go to get the shot?
choicelady

7 days ago
ad – he probably wants his money up front
sillylittleme

7 days ago
pink – sad though isn’t it?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph – I’d not heard Steve say that. It is pretty damning.
choicelady

7 days ago
slm. No I’m disgusted. It’s the sorry media in this country. I have nothing but disdain for the MSM.
sabreen60

7 days ago
Choice….the story is told best in Game Change.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Sabreen, with you on that. How that pesky left-wing liberal press were all over the President’s speech. Disgusting is right.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
slm – I heard that the buzz is that Hillary is going to announce her candidacy for President in January. I wouldn’t be surprised, she wants to head off any real alternatives to her and scare them off early. So we’ll have nearly 2 years of a Hillary campaign? Then again, Elizabeth Warren is sure getting a lot of attention and making some moves. Despite her refusals…is it possible?
adlib 7 days ago
Murph – don’t know that film. I do know that “Ides of March” with George Clooney bears NO resemblance to reality.
choicelady

7 days ago
AdLib – with Warren’s new role in the Senate, I think she just lept forward.
choicelady

7 days ago
AdLib, speaking of prostitutes, I understand that Jonathan Turley has taken the case to sue President Obama over the ACA. After Boehner could find no one else, Turley steps up. But then again I read we taxpayers are paying him $500 per hour for his services.
sabreen60

7 days ago
Sabreen – he’s a Libertarian for whom NO government actions can ever be all right.
choicelady

7 days ago
Choice. Game Change is ALL about Palin and worth seeing, I have three times. Ran on HBO
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Murph – OK – now I remember. Do not have HBO, so I never saw it.
choicelady

7 days ago
CL, unless of course, they are paying him!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
slm – Heh! Yep, I heard that before Schmidt would sign onto Perry’s campaign, he asked him to tell him if he was a cop then demanded that his salary be put on the nightstand first.
adlib 7 days ago
Choice…Warren will not let the Old Men use her.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Murph – that probably limits GOP women. It wouldn’t limit Warren
choicelady

7 days ago
ad – warren will remain as senator
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM – I think, actually, you are correct. She says she’s not running. I believe her. But she’s just ticked up into the big time setting policy for the Senate. Hoo boy!
choicelady

7 days ago
SLM…Warren is going to be a huge player in the Senate….the LIONESS of the SENATE…..

I’m still hoping O’Malley will throw his hat in the ring. In fact, I hope many others throw their hat in the ring.

Hey, Beatlex! Cool enough for you?
pinkpantheroz

Warren – still my proudest vote ever!!
sillylittleme

Dream team Sabreen: O’Malley and Brown (or Whitehouse) even tho they’re all men.
choicelady

Sabreen – I mean SHERROD Brown not Jerry!!!
choicelady

7 days ago
CL – The HBO movie Game Change was based on the book which was by two wankers ( Mark Halperin and John Heilemann) who were reporting on the McCain/Palin campaign and it was all pretty accurate in the film.
adlib 7 days ago
AdLib – that’s the problem with having NO extended cable – i miss a lot.
choicelady

7 days ago
CL, I knew you meant Sherrod. I like him, too.
sabreen60

choice try hulu plus or amazon, cheaper than cable channels; so long as you have internet
sillylittleme

My ex sat behind him at the Cleveland Public Library on a presentation about the 1919 Little Steel strikes. Brown never identified himself, just listened. Spent three hours there learning something new.
choicelady

7 days ago
Sabreen – Hadn’t heard that, Turley has agreed to it? What a douche. He’s been hating on Obama and trying to sue him over one thing or another for years. Great to see his rep go down with this BS lawsuit.
adlib 7 days ago
Turley appears liberal sometimes and Maddow had him for several months before 2009. Then his REAL persona came out. He’s anti-government in almost all ways, totally for the market forces as the main social good. Libertarian philosophy is evil.
choicelady

7 days ago
Ad, here’s a bit of Game Change:
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
CL, I don’t know. You may be better off without cable. We keep threatening to turn if off. It’s corporate owned so you’re going to get majority of rightwing talking points. Also, everything cost extra. HBO, Showtime, etc. have few movies worth watching. Cable is charging $3 and up for 20 year old movies!

The Senate is likely to go back into Dem hands in 2016, just for fun, can you imagine these words, “Majority Leader Elizabeth Warren”? Yep, I know seniority issues make it nearly impossible but how cool would that be?
adlib 7 days ago
PPO – to use YouTube (I like it) I have to get the sound on this computer fixed – and that means remembering to do it!!!
choicelady

7 days ago
PPO – Try the YouTube link again without the “v”, that’s only when you embed in a regular comment under a post.
adlib 7 days ago
AdLib – WAY cool.
choicelady

7 days ago
Better!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
OK – PPO you have given incentive to fix the sound on the computer. Thank you.

I don’t believe that the GOP can get away with doing nothing until 2016 and getting anyone but hard core Repubs to vote for them because the Hate Obama routine won’t work by then since he will be outgoing. And sure, they have their Hate Hillary campaign under way but considering who they’ll have to put up as acandidate, they’ll be worse off with an unlikeable candidate. The GOP has a midterm strategy, that’s all that hollowed out party can do, just a “Mad at the way things are? Vote for us!” But that doesn’t work in Presidential elections when the President hasn’t blown up the economy.

It’s actually a very good thing that Repubs are back in their delusion about America being behind them because they won this election due to a poor turnout. They always destroy themselves with their own hubris (remember Mitt Romney was so certain on election night that all non-Repub polls were wrong and he was about to become President Romney?) The best way to defeat the Repubs in 2016 (and have a chance to change the balance on the SCOTUS) was for them to win this year’s election.

AdLib – when you have activists – Latinos in this case – calling for NOT voting to ‘send the president a message’ we are freaking doomed. So if you don’t get what you want immediately, you don’t vote and thereby immediately get what you don’t want. And this happened in 2010, in local 2012 elections, and now 2014. I think if some issue arises that pisses off someone, you could see Jeb in the White House not because he’s loved but because those who have the power to vote someone else in won’t go to the polls.
choicelady

Murph – I would guess that in some states, if it’s in their constitution, they’ll need a 2/3 vote. For those states that don’t, a simple majority may be all that’s needed in a Legislature or ballot initiative. But my point is that a swing state will have so many disenfranchised and angered Dem voters, they will turn out hugely in the next election and I think control and that election cheat will change.

Funk – That corrupting of elections and electoral votes was stopped in PA, I hope the same will be true in MI and if not, the DoJ should come down hard on them for diluting the nature of people’s Constitutional rights to voting and representation. Gerrymandering districts then passing laws to further disenfranchise voters in federal elections? It should not be allowed to stand and there will be lawsuits.

Beatlex – Cosby appeared on Jon Stewart just before all of this hit the fan and Stewart sincerely honored Cosby as the inspiration he was to so many comedians…but last night Stewart made a sharp joke about Cosby. I’m sure he feels awful after putting Cosby on a pedestal on his show then seeing all this terribleness be revealed.

sillylittleme

slm – I don’t know, powerful and wealthy people think they live in a different reality and that they are entitled to do whatever they choose in the world and get away with it. Dick Cheney and Karl Rove thought that, Bill Cosby did too no doubt. And finally, the payback comes.
adlib 7 days ago

sillylittleme

slm – Maybe you know this but the line on comedians in general is that they are very messed up, angry people. Not all comedians, I mentioned Jon Stewart, I think he’s a legit good guy and there are many others. But some of the most successful comedians and comic actors are miserable human beings while having a kind public image.

sillylittleme

7 days ago
slm – Maybe because they want to do all they can to distance themselves from being suspected of what they’re guilty of? And yes, I’ve only hear good things about Jerry Seinfeld. But I’ve heard some very negative things about Larry David who I liked until I heard those things.

slm – When I was young, I had Bill Cosby comedy albums and I loved them. He was one of my favorite comedians. But that all goes down the toilet now, people should be seen for who they really are and when they ruin the lives of other human beings for their own sexual satisfaction, there can be no allowence.

It may not be the case but it sure seems to me that he was just a selfish monster, seeing women he wanted and just taking them. And so devoid of anything resembling humanity. Just terrible.

funksands

slm – Kind of sad that it took a man to say it for it to stick but a standup comedian made a jab at Cosby, calling him a rapist and explaining some of this in his act. The video of that went viral and it is that and only that apparently, that made this blow up. Then when he pandered to make himself a meme on Facebook, he was hammered. meanwhile, women had been suing him and trying to get him prosecuted for decades.
