Buuuurp! (‘scuse me!)
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Quite a nice meal, eh?
adlib 7 days ago
A tad too warm here for turkey, but we did have nice salads!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
It’s never too hot for turkey! Try a turkey milkshake!
adlib 7 days ago
I don’t think so, Tim!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Turkey wine cooler?
adlib 7 days ago
BRB getting some of that! actually a coffee!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Much better!
adlib 7 days ago
So who went Black Friday shopping today?
adlib 7 days ago
Hey Ad, no shopping today. Cleam
sillylittleme

7 days ago
ned up from yesterday
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hey slm! Yep, same here, and chilling out.
adlib 7 days ago
It’s chilly in LA?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
I’m really bothered by the Thanksgifing day shopping. With this trend, it will no longer be a holiday or a day with much meaning, just about consumung food and products.
adlib 7 days ago
It was pretty warm today, actually. How are things your way?
adlib 7 days ago
Totally agree. I usually wait til next weekend when things have calmed down.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
We got a bit of Thanksgiving snow, freezing until Sunday when it goes back into the 50s
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Gives you the best excuse to stay home, warm and cozy.
adlib 7 days ago
Exactly!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
So who cooked?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
I know we’ll finally get a winter here but thanks to Climate Change, not yet!
adlib 7 days ago
My wife cooked, daughter helped, I carved, had friends over, a very nice evening.
adlib 7 days ago
Did you cook?
adlib 7 days ago
Sounds nice. Yes, I cooked for myself and my man and also cooked for my landlord and his sons.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Two kitchens, two meals, slept like a baby last night.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Sounds great! You earned that sleep!
adlib 7 days ago
Without a doubt.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Kind of feel like corporations are trying to run over Thanksgiving because it’s not a profit maker for them…until they had Black Friday back over it.
adlib 7 days ago
Of course, money is all they care about. What a sad statement about society…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Yes, what angers me though is that Americans are just blindly embracing this encroachment of shopping and stampeding to stores into T-Day. It’s making retail workers lose this day as a holiday and breaking up family and friends from spending that day together. Pretty awful IMO.
adlib 7 days ago
State elections here in Victoria today. Liberal (GOP) incumbents will probably get thrown out by Labor ( dems) as a protest at the Federal Bunch of eejits
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Evening Glenn, survive Thanksgiving?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
I’m in a safe GOP seat but I’ll still vote Labor.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO – So sounds like the reverse of our election.
adlib 7 days ago
PPO – Any restrictions against gerrymandering there?
adlib 7 days ago
Evening, Silly, Ad, and PPO. Yes, I did have a nice Thanksgiving. Sounds like yours was nice, also, SLM.
glenn

7 days ago
Ad – seems like we are backwards from the rest of the fully developed democracies…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Great to hear, glenn!
adlib 7 days ago
Yes, ad, but it is only one state, and the gerrymander is alive and kickiing! But the demographics are starting to change, so….. we live in hope.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO–your situation sounds like mine. I’m in a red state, but still vote Dem.
glenn

7 days ago
Glenn – I had a lot of fun cooking!!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
At least we do get a large voting turnout, due to it being compulsory!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO – The gerrymandering is so bad here that Repubs won this year even though the demographics have been strongly changing against them. But off year elections cause this.
adlib 7 days ago
SLM–good on ya for cooking. Luckily, I rely on my son-in-law and daughter to do most of the cooking nowadays. My son-in-law made baked ziti, as well as turkey and all the trimmings. Lots of leftovers!
glenn

7 days ago
PPO – wish that we had compulsory voting…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
fix that, Ad by making it an honorable duty to vote.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Glenn – yum, nothing better than a man who knows his way around the kitchen…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
PPO – Hard to instill a sense of honor in the apathetic.
adlib 7 days ago
SLM, yes it’s really no impost, especially when the elections are held on Saturdays and it only takes a minute or two. Plenty of booths, few queues.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Ad – if it were compulsory, then apathy wouldn’t be tolerated,
sillylittleme

7 days ago
All-I am so pissed off with all those lazy ass Dems who didn’t vote, and I really don’t care what their reasons for not voting were. I’m going to sound like a tbagger here and yell, “I want MY country back!” Rude, disrespectful repubs are talking about NOT inviting the President for the State of the Union address. WTH is wrong with these people? They’re sore losers and even sorer winners!
glenn

7 days ago
Glenn – couldn’t agree more, want MY country back to sanity and sensibility
sillylittleme

7 days ago
slm – I agree, compulsory voting would be the best way to solve that. But Repubs don’t want more people voting, they’ll stand in the way of that happening.
adlib 7 days ago
Ad – of course, because they’d never have another seat in any position
sillylittleme

7 days ago
ad, you’re probably right, but couldn’t the US at least vote on a weekend?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Glenn – who do they think will give the SOTU address?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn – What? Some Repubs are saying they don’t want the President giving a SOTU address to Congress?
adlib 7 days ago
SLM, David Letterman’s Top Ten!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
BRB
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
SLM–They want the President to give it in writing; they just don’t want him to be able to speak in Congress.
glenn

7 days ago
PPO – even if it was on a weekend, so many people work weekends it wouldn’t alleviate the problem
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Glenn – so they want people to read it?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn – Couldn’t they just put a sign on the Capitol Building saying, “White Presidents Only”?
adlib 7 days ago
Ad–you haven’t heard that one? Yes, some repubs are saying that they will NOT invite the President to Congress to give the SOTU address. They want him to put it in writing–in other words, they don’t want to show bipartanship! They just want to show their buffoonery.
glenn

7 days ago
Ad – more like puppet presidents need only apply…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Glenn – who specifically is pushing this tripe?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn – He’ll be there, they can just not come like the brats they are.
adlib 7 days ago
SLM–I guess it’s okay with them if people read it, they just don’t want President Obama in Congress. I’m going to look for the link now.
glenn

7 days ago
Ad – he should lock them out
sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn – Such blatant racism. The GOP is just one sick enterprise.
adlib 7 days ago

Republicans Mull Barring Obama From Delivering State Of The Union Address
Those pissy well-poisoners are looking at all their options.

From the article in Salon: As best we can tell, its genesis is a Breitbart News column, because of course it is. Breitbart’s Joel Pollak writes that Obama can just turn in his State of the Union on paper and members of Congress can read it into the record:
glenn

7 days ago
Glenn – they’ve obviously completely lost their minds. Sounds like some charges of treason are warrented…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
I don’t see any specific Repubs cited, this could be just a tactic to insult Obama, doesn’t sound substantial.
adlib 7 days ago
SLM–There you go! Do you believe those assholes? I usually don’t cuss this much, but I canNOT believe these people. They are such babies and brats as Ad says.
glenn

7 days ago
SLM I tried to copy the whole quote, but it didn’t make it. However, it seems it began with a writer at Breitbart.
glenn

7 days ago
SLM–And…members of Congress can read it into the record. So..if they try this,.does boner get to read it? Will they read it in its entirety without “editorial” comments? Assholes!
glenn

7 days ago
Sad to say we’ve got until after 2020 until the opportunity to change the gerrymandering that assures Repub control of the House. But I think The Senate will be back in Dem hands in 2016.
adlib 7 days ago
I’d love if President Obama gave the shortest SOTU speech in history:
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
They are no longer to be considered adults. I would go further and call them puckered, gaseous assholes
sillylittleme

7 days ago
” The Union is in a state of total meltdown, and it’s all your fault!” End of speech
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO – he should say the state of the union is crap and especially those who sit before me, tasked with creating laws they instead create chaos.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM–I like the adjectives you added!
glenn

7 days ago
After “You lie!”, Repub SCOTUS members not attending and 3 SOTU rebuttals from the GOP, the Repubs have turned the SOTU into a tainted tradition.
adlib 7 days ago
PPO–No, I think he should give the LONGEST speech. Let the puckered, gaseous assholes listen for an hour or two. And, where are the Dems condemning this move? Why isn’t every Democrat in Congress calling out these bastards for this stunt?
glenn

7 days ago
Ad – if we ever have another R president, the Ds should stand as one and moon him/her…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
All–Maybe President Obama should read “Green Eggs and Ham” for his SOTU speech. After all, it “worked” for rafeal cruz, didn’t it?
glenn

7 days ago
SLM–Ooh, I like the way your mind works!
glenn

7 days ago
OBAMA: “The State of the Union is…fucked up. I mean, look at these people who are in Congress. They castrate pigs, get indicted on federal counts, express open racism, sexism and misogyny, I mean come on fellow Americans! This is the best we can do? If so, we are screwed.”
adlib 7 days ago
Glenn – he should read the Lorax then announce that Keystone is dead…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Nice Ad!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM–LIke that one, too!
glenn

7 days ago
Ad–Good one!
glenn

7 days ago
Obama could pull a Bulworth:

adlib 7 days ago
Ad – can you imagine if he dressed that way? That would be the headline, not what he said…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Ad–Definitely he should pull a Bulworth and do rap! Love it!
glenn

7 days ago
Wouldn’t that be cool though!
adlib 7 days ago
All – Verizon in MA has dropped the local Fox affiliates because Cox Communications wanted to increase the rates. Suffering Comcast customer here, but its nice to see corporations going at it!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM, wish everybody dropped FUX
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
SLM and PPO–As far as I’m concerned, all of the anchors at Fox should be tried for treason.
glenn

7 days ago
PPO – unfortunately they didn’t drop Fox News as that is national and not owned by Cox.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
All – 400,000 customers cut off with just a couple of days notice. Most were upset about losing access to football…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
never having had cable, glenn, I can’t say, but from what I gather elsewhere, you have a point.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO–I don’t watch fox, but all you have to do is read on other sites what they say.
glenn

7 days ago
SLM, typical, osn’t it that the upset is over football, but warped news still goes on. sigh
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
All – bringing back the Fairness Doctrine puts a stop to it all.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hey Kalima, are you with us tonight?
glenn

7 days ago
Oops, guess Kalima pushed the wrong key.
glenn

7 days ago
BRB
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Glenn – she’s with us in spirit…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM–The puckered, gaseous assholes will never let the Fairness Doctrine become law again. It would put a stop to foxso-callenews, and probably even MSNBC, which sometimes, IMO, wouldn’t be a bad thing.
glenn

7 days ago
All – Cox Communications is another of Romney’s “projects”, guess that car elevator is costing more than he thought to run…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM–saw her name momentarily on the side.
glenn

7 days ago
Glenn – it would cause all of the corporate media to be broken up, and that wouldn’t be a bad thing
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM–I agree. What is it now? Only about two or three corporations own all of the news outlets?
glenn

7 days ago
This blocking of a channel to a cable or satellite companies customers is now a pretty standard negotiation tactic. It is happening more frequently, a game that each side thinks will help them win them what they want. Meanwhile, screw the people.
adlib 7 days ago
Ad – basically what most were commenting, its always the customers that get squeezed.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Yep, we are down to 4-5 corps that control all of our media. And of course, as they always promise before their takeovers of other media companies, it’s made things so much better for consumers and lowered our bills.
adlib 7 days ago
Glenn – I think there are a few more than that, there are still some regional news corporations, but you’re point is well taken
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Corporations are gluttonous. They’re now trying to devour an entire holiday and turn Thanksgiving into a holiday that’s just about shopping for crap.
adlib 7 days ago
Hey Sabreen
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hey Sabreen!
adlib 7 days ago
Happy belated Thanksgiving everyone! I just wanted to stop by and say I hope you enjoyed the holiday.
sabreen60

7 days ago
Thanks Sabreen, we did! Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful!
adlib 7 days ago
Ad – I want to attach an image from Facebook that sums up your feelings on the subject. What do I have to do to post a picture…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
slm – Just link to the image and I’ll embed it.
adlib 7 days ago
Hey Sabreen!
glenn

7 days ago
SLM–That about says it all.
glenn

7 days ago
Here it is slm:
adlib 7 days ago
Ad–SLM’s link worked; I could see the picture.
glenn

7 days ago
Glenn – not everyone has a Facebook account…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
slm – Sorry, here we go:
adlib 7 days ago
slm – Thanks a great sign and so true. People were protesting Walmart all over the country. But retail companies like Macy’s are just as guilty. They pay min wage and then didn’t close for Thanksgiving so their employees could spend the day with their families. It’s just so disgusting. But on the other hand, people were lined up for blocks waiting to get into Walmart. So hundreds protested, but thousands shopped.
sabreen60

7 days ago
Hey folks, I have to step away for a bit, feel free to help yourselves at the bar but no barfights while I’m gone.
adlib 7 days ago
AdLib et al – Yes I enjoyed the day very much. At least I was able to close my mind to all the crap going on.
sabreen60

7 days ago
Sabreen – agree and those who shopped are so wrapped up in themselves that they don’t see the disgusting treatment of those who have to work. Attended a Veteran
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Sabreen–I guess the good news is that some people did protest.
glenn

7 days ago
‘s Thanksgiving dinner and sat next to someone who thought the Waltons were entitled to all of their billions. He also was anti-union.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn – Yep. But the only way real change is going to happen is when enough people get fed up.
sabreen60

7 days ago
Sabreen–I agree, but I’m afraid that’s going to take a very long time! Hell, people aren’t fed up enough to even vote, let alone protest!
glenn

7 days ago
Sabreen – so agree, but that will take a hell of a lot of people to get po’d
sillylittleme

7 days ago
slm- Of course there are people like that. If not, then the unions couldn’t have been decimated. We can always count on people who don’t care about other people.
sabreen60

7 days ago
Hey Kalima, how
sillylittleme

7 days ago
‘re things in Tokyo
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Sabreen – as my man said, he is retired so he has his can’
sillylittleme

7 days ago
t be bothered with anyone else
sillylittleme

7 days ago
I’m not on the Chat but working somewhere else, so please don’t think that I’m ignoring you.
kalima

7 days ago
Sabreen – that didn’t stop him from wrapping up a couple of plates to take home to his wife. He didn’t see the irony…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Well folks I wish I could stay, but I must go. Have a great and safe week.
sabreen60

7 days ago
Okay,folks, time for me to call it a night. G’night everyone. Hope you all have a good weekend. Peace!
glenn

7 days ago
G’night Sabreen. Take care.
glenn

7 days ago
Nite Sabreen and Glenn, have a happy and healthy weekend.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hope you are had a great Thanksgiving. Bye for now and take care.
kalima

7 days ago
All… Had a …. blush
kalima

7 days ago
I’m signing off, too. Gotta go vote. take care, everybody.
