AdLib On September - 4 - 2015
Vox Populi begins at 7PM PDT tonight, even though Kim Davis refuses to license it. Join us for a lively chat about the week’s events where no one is ever held in contempt! Hope to see you then!
AdLib 7 days ago
Don’t forget to say “Hi!” or “Contempted By the Devil!” when you arrive.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey glenn!
AdLib 7 days ago
Good evening, Ad. Can I say, “Free Kim Davis—NOT!” or, just Hi. How are you?
glenn

7 days ago
I’m fine. Hope Kim is having a great weekend behind bars. She so wants to be a martyr. I so want her to be forgotten behind bars.
AdLib 7 days ago
All well your way, glenn?
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey Ad– I was a little “late” this evening because I was watching the video of our charming President dancing with the kids in Alaska. Have you seen it? I just love how genuine President comes across. As we were discussing last week, such a stark contrast to Hillary’s public personna.
glenn

7 days ago
Yes, saw it!
AdLib 7 days ago
All well my way, Ad. My pineapple and orchids are growing well.
glenn

7 days ago
Hey peeps!

Hey KT!
glenn

Orchids are tough to grow, are they not?
KillgoreTrout

Evening all – hope everyone is well?
choicelady

hey kids!
Harleigh

7 days ago
glenn – I am testing out my grudging support for Hillary should she win the primary. It’s working properly.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey Harleigh!
AdLib 7 days ago
glenn – I have two orchids w no flowers. Can they be saved?
choicelady

7 days ago
Say Ad, and glenn. Harleigh. and CL.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hi KT!
choicelady

7 days ago
Pineapples glenn? Wow!
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey CL!
AdLib 7 days ago
KT–If I can grow them, they can’t be too tough. My husband started them; but I have managed to keep them alive for almost six years now.
glenn

7 days ago
Hey AdLib – how are YOU?
choicelady

7 days ago
Well done glenn.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – that is amazing!
choicelady

7 days ago
Hey CL, Harleigh.
glenn

7 days ago
do you have a greenhouse?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
CL – Doing well, and you?
AdLib 7 days ago
Busy, AdLib – hanging in though.
choicelady

7 days ago
CL–Have you tried orchid food? What kind of a medium do you have them in? Are they in sunshine? All flowering plants have to have a good amount of sunshine.
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – it’s filtered light, but I am going to add orchid food. They seem alive, just without any flower at the moment.
choicelady

7 days ago
my wife has about 50 orchids, no 2 are alike
Harleigh

7 days ago
Hi Harleigh – didn’t say hi right at first. How are you? That’s amazing about your wife’s orchids.
choicelady

7 days ago
Ad–only one pineapple plant that I brought to GA with me. Once again, my husband started it and we got one pineapple from the plant while he was still alive. I just brought the plant up here with me for sentimental reasons; I never expected it to produce another pineapple. I’m hoping to start another plant from this pineapple. I have to research how to do it; but I’m going to try my best!
glenn

So, does anyone think I would get Huckabee and Rand supporting me if I was a clerk who refused to give out gun licenses because of my religious beliefs?
AdLib 7 days ago
I see Huckabee and Jindal are defending the mad country clerk. It never ceases to amaze me that such stupid people can raise to such heights in this country.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
we are in orchid growing mecca
Harleigh

7 days ago
AdLib – Huck? Rand? LOLOLOLOLOL!!!!
choicelady

7 days ago
no Ad, you’d be condemned as a liberal, commie, socialist scumbag.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–No I don’t have a greenhouse. The plants are outside in the summer; and I put them under my grown light in the winter. Don’t know what I’ll do this winter, because they are all to tall to go under the light. Have to rearrage my furniture in my sunroom so they’ll be in direct sunlight.
glenn

7 days ago
KT – I’d not call the clerk of that dismal county ‘rising to heights’ but she DOES earn $80K per year.
choicelady

7 days ago
glenn – That’s a very special plant, so cool that you’ve been taking care of it so well!
AdLib 7 days ago
CL, no, I meant the Huckster and Jindal.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Harleigh–Good for her. I love the variety of orchids.
glenn

7 days ago
KT – Oh man – THAT is the truth!
choicelady

7 days ago
Hello Everybody!
monicaangela

7 days ago
Hi Monicaangela! Nice to see you!
choicelady

7 days ago
even Lindsey Graham could know enough to admit this clerk was in the wrong.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hi all, funny post today KT
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hey Monica!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Funny how jobs that were low paying gubmint jobs are now the best in whats left of murikkka
Harleigh

7 days ago
CL – But they’re defending Kim Davis for doing the same on gar marriage licenses. I don’t understand, why wouldn’t they apply the same support for me if I refused to issue gun licenses? Hmm…
AdLib 7 days ago
Hi SLM – lovely to see you!
choicelady

7 days ago
Thanks slm.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hello Choice Lady!
monicaangela

7 days ago
Hi Monica!
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey KT
monicaangela

7 days ago
Ad–Saw a “sign” in a driver’s license office that says women will not be issued driver’s licenses because the head of the office is a Muslim. Same difference.
glenn

7 days ago
Hi AdLib
monicaangela

7 days ago
AdLib – I think you know. You’d be the ‘wrong kind’ of religious liberty person.
choicelady

7 days ago
Hi Choice, how goes it?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
hey monica!
Harleigh

7 days ago
glenn – that IS a joke sign, but the point was good.
choicelady

7 days ago
Hey Harleigh
monicaangela

7 days ago
SLM – it goes. Too busy by half, but OK.
choicelady

7 days ago
Choice – that means you’re livin”
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hi Monicaangela; Hi SLM. Hope you are both well.
glenn

7 days ago
This idiot clerk has been compared to Rosa Parks, by the fundies. I’d say she’s more like the bus driver who tols Rosa to sit in the back
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hi Glenn -well enough (a little head cold) how are things by you?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
What’s the hot topic tonight? Is anybody discussing the Hillary Clinton interview with Andrea Mitchell?
monicaangela

7 days ago
Hi Glenn!
monicaangela

7 days ago
SLM – yikes – is THAT the definition? I got up at 2:30 this morning to drive a homeless friend to the bus station. I can do that – I just dont recover well! Overslept this morning, funny thing…
choicelady

7 days ago
glenn – That’s even better! So would the Huckster and the other Repub reptiles support the right of a Muslim in the DMV to deny drivers licenses to women? Sad thing is, they might support that!
AdLib 7 days ago
I haven’t seen it yet Monica. How was it?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
CL–Yeah, I knew it was a joke; but then so again is the clerk in KY.
glenn

7 days ago
AdLib – no, they’d NEVER suppor ‘sharia’ in America even though the propagate it.
choicelady

7 days ago
KT, it was a really good interview…..GO BERNIE!!!!!
monicaangela

7 days ago
glenn !!!! That is SO TRUE! My boss, a Methodist minister, said she’s doing this to divert attention from her own totally screwed up life!
choicelady

7 days ago
Where can I check it out Monica? MSNBC?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Choice – anything we do is livin’ whether it is well or not depends
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM – that is true.
choicelady

7 days ago
Hey B
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hey Beatlex! Good to see you!
choicelady

7 days ago
Yes KT, it was on MSNBC, you can probably check it out on Youtube
monicaangela

7 days ago
Monica – Haven’t gotten to that yet tonight, started out talking about Kim Davis in jail…where God wants her.
AdLib 7 days ago
CL–Also saw a post comparing sharia law and republican beliefs and they are the same. So, we don’t have to worry about sharia law; if repubs get their way, we’ll have it!
glenn

7 days ago
So the Donald is going rogue! That mean radio guy asked him a gotcha question! You can’t make stuff like that up,LOL
Beatlex

7 days ago
glenn – yup. But it will be for Jeeeeezussss.
choicelady

7 days ago
this clerk is being put up to her nonsense by the Family Research Council and another fundie group that does the legal wrangling for her. It’s really a lame ass revolt against the SC’s recent decision on same sex marriage. They’re wasting their time and money though. The SC’s decision is final, and they aren’t going to hear anymore challenges.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Every MSNBC talking head has used Hillary’s interview as the topic for their entire show.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Beatlex – I think it’s pathetic The Donald thinks being asked foreign policy questions is a ‘gotcha’. That man is dumb as a post.
choicelady

7 days ago
Monicaangela and also SLM–I really love the things Bernie says. I also love the way he won’t let the media bait him into talking bad about Hillary and other candidates. He seems like a genuine human being.like our current President.
glenn

7 days ago
The Donald is nothing but egotistical bluster.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hey Pink
sillylittleme

7 days ago
KT – I think The Donald is worse than that – I think he’s a genuine fascist.
choicelady

7 days ago
Hey PPO!
choicelady

7 days ago
well, that too.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hi Beatlex. I was typing and missed you coming in.
glenn

7 days ago
Which one’s Pink?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Morning all!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
CL – Exactly! The MSM tried slamming Hillary for saying that the Repubs are saying things like Muslim extremists, both trying to control women and put religious “law” over actual laws which I thought was so dishonest. Repubs today are the American version of Sharia law, trying to dictate their religious beliefs to the nation.
AdLib 7 days ago
monica, they have always done that,did you hear the Reverand Al show is going off the air at that time slot?
Beatlex

7 days ago
Glenn – we won’t have sharia law, no usury
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hey Pink.
glenn

7 days ago
Hey PPO!
AdLib 7 days ago
Hi slm!
AdLib 7 days ago
what’s the buzz today?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
AdLib – she was correct that this is what you’d expect from terrorists NOT from Americans. Spot ON.
choicelady

7 days ago
Allo’ everyone,nice to be back!
Beatlex

7 days ago
What’s up, Beatlex?
AdLib 7 days ago
Glenn – you’re right about Bernie
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hey, beatlex, Ad,
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
SLM–LOL–we have to make sure greed stays in our laws, don’t we?
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – of course
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Oh, god, we’re not still blathering on about Rooster Cogburn, are we?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Despite the Supreme Court’s decision, anti-miscegenation laws remained on the books in several states, although the decision had made them unenforceable. Local judges in Alabama continued to enforce that state’s anti-miscegenation statute until the Nixon administration obtained a ruling from a U.S. District Court in United States v. Brittain in 1970.[14][15] In 2000, Alabama became the last state to adapt its laws to the Supreme Court’s decision, when 60% of voters endorsed a ballot initiative that removed anti-miscegenation language from the state constitution
monicaangela

7 days ago
It stands to reason there will be those that will continue to try to oppose marriage equality. Problem..it’s a done deal!
monicaangela

7 days ago
Rooster Cogburn? you mean Annie Wilkes?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
MA =- I was aware of those laws. The nullification/10th Amendment folks refuse to give up and cede the federal supremacy issues.
choicelady

7 days ago
PPO–who is rooster cogburn? I mean, I know the film, but which one of our current crop of clowns are you referring to?
glenn

7 days ago
Adlib,I have been going through some medical tests,I have not been well for a while,I think we have it sorted out
Beatlex

7 days ago
Ya MA AL is a bit slow on the uptake
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Beatlex – I hope you’re OK?? That is awful – I’m sorry you’re going through that.
choicelady

7 days ago
I could see Huckabee as Foghorn Leghorn!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Beatlex–hope everything is sorted out and you are on the road to being better.
glenn

7 days ago
KT – Huck isn’t that FUNNY!
choicelady

7 days ago
CL, that big white Rooster who never shuts up, with the funny red comb on his head, a la the donald.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Be well B, hasty recovery
sillylittleme

7 days ago
True dat, CL. Not intentionally anyway.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
FOGHORN LEGHORN I meant!!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Sad isn’t it CL..I suppose it will be that way for as long as we continue to live under a system that refuses to challenge fringe groups.
monicaangela

7 days ago
PPO – I do agree, but Foghorn could make you laugh, The Donald makes my teeth grit.
choicelady

7 days ago
KT–I could see Huckabee as Neil Diamond’s “Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show”.
glenn

7 days ago
SLM, I missed your comment on Al, could you repeat?
monicaangela

7 days ago
Beatlex, sorry to hear that you haven’t been well but encouraged that they’ve figured it out and you’re on the mend.
AdLib 7 days ago
What was the name of that movie where Steve Martin played a travelling preacher?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
MA – oh, the mainstream Christian groups HAVE challenged the religious right and then some. And for our pains we get ignored by the MSM and stalked by the right.
choicelady

7 days ago
KT – Leap of Faith. It was a very fine movie.
choicelady

7 days ago
MA I was just saying that Alabama is a bit slow to deal with modernity.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
CL,it took them a long time to diagnose it.But l have been on my program for a week,and I am feeling better everyday
Beatlex

7 days ago
SLM, yeah, like ab out 200 years late!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
No surprise there CL. The truth can’t come out in the open. Fundie Heaven forbid
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Beatlex – that is excellent news! First step is having GOOD doctors! I’m so glad it’s working for you.
choicelady

7 days ago
Absolutely Glenn…I can’t understand how those same people that are complaining are the ones that are heavily against Sharia law, yet they feel somehow what they are doing is in some way different, or not the same. Unbelievable what we have to deal with in the country.
monicaangela

7 days ago
B, are you talking about COPD?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – during the days marriage equality was legal in CA before Prop. 8, many progressive people of faith showed up at the courthouse to celebrate. MSM interveiewed extremists and ignored us. TOTALLY.
choicelady

7 days ago
MA – what is done in the name of Jesus is radically different (exactly the same) as what is done wrongly in the name of Mohammed (pbuh).
choicelady

7 days ago
You have to admit though, as offensive as the open racism, homophobia, misogyny and religious intolerance of most Repub candidates is, it is sure staining the GOP as unelectable as we head towards 2016. No way any candidate from the GOP can fully reverse the stink on their party now.
AdLib 7 days ago
Of course Choice, they’re paid to keep it divisive.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
the more radical the more msm likes it
Harleigh

7 days ago
MA–The stupidity of some of these so-called christians is unbelievable. It just blows my mind.
glenn

7 days ago
That sucks, CL. We have a seriously flawed media in this country. They’re practically all owned by the powers that be.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
SLM – that they are.
choicelady

7 days ago
It is treatable,it is IBS(irritable bowel syndrome,I am making some diet choices and cutting down on coffee(ouch)!
Beatlex

7 days ago
Amazing isn’t it CL, that is exactly why anybody with a conscience that is watching can tell this is all a farce on the part of the corrupted Christians.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Ad I read that as panty
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Beatlex – I had to remove ALL grains to get some health. Might try going Paleo which isn’t awful, just isn’t good.
choicelady

7 days ago
IBS is a pain, Beat. Sorry you have it. My lady suffers as well and it does cramp ones style a lot
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Harleigh–that’s why Sanders doesn’t get any press. All he does is talk about the issues and refuse to bash his fellow candidates. And dumb-ass trump gets all the attention.
glenn

7 days ago
Beatlex – That’s really good news!
AdLib 7 days ago
B, if it’s any consolation, beer works wonders.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – I see a lot of media stuff on Bernie. I do respect his sticking with issues, but at least here in CA he gets attention.
choicelady

7 days ago
B chamomile tea can be a satisfying replacement for coffee
sillylittleme

7 days ago
slm – I think your version is better!
AdLib 7 days ago
I wouldn’t be so sure AdLib, who would have believed the Repubs would take the house and senate in the 2012 elections?
monicaangela

7 days ago
Oz,my symptoms were bad,I would get very ill on too many days the last 9 months
Beatlex

7 days ago
CL–good to hear Sanders is getting attention somewhere.
glenn

7 days ago
Monica, they won because the Dems didn’t GOTV enough
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
B, you can also try Valerian Root. One or two capsules a nigh, before bed.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Chamomile tea is a great thing to use for inflamation, and problems due to stress.
monicaangela

7 days ago
MA – I am not surprised. Too many lazy people think they don’t have to vote if the Congressional rep isn’t pure enough. Votes are yours but not JUST about you – it’s about the nation. Too many don’t vote. Dem turnout was WAy DOWN IN 2010, 14.
choicelady

7 days ago
i don’t understand how sanders can run as a dem… he is not. cruz was born to foreign national in canada. wrong
Harleigh

7 days ago
NOT giving up the suds KT! Everything in moderation though
Beatlex

7 days ago
That could be correct PPO, also too, the dems didn’t go to the polls enough and then there is that little dirty gerrymandering secret that continues to be kicked under the rug.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Harleigh – supposedly Cruz’s mother is American citizen, but I hear she wasn’t born here. I’m unsure he DOES qualify as a natural born citizen due to that.
choicelady

7 days ago
Harleigh–yet a majority of repubs believe that President Obama was not born in the US and that teddycruz was! What a bunch of morans!
glenn

7 days ago
Harleigh, you can register as anything you want. Bernie basically registered as a dem so he could debate Hillary and hopefully move the conversation more to the left.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Adlib,I will google that later
Beatlex

7 days ago
MA – the DOJ challenged and won several gerrymandering cases lately. That’s hopeful.
choicelady

7 days ago
glenn – But in the end, as I mentioned, it’s great that Trump, as a Repub that all Repubs have pledged to support, is the face of the GOP and getting so much attention now. Imagine the opposite, a George W. Bush who pretended to be a moderate, a Compassionate Conservative and fooled enough moderate voters to support him (making it close enough that so Jeb and the SCOTUS could steal the election for him). I am glad that the true hatreds of the GOP are on display for voters to see. I’ve said this before, Trump could be the new Goldwater for the GOP, making them lose “huge” in 2016 and damaging their party for decades.
AdLib 7 days ago
CL–I thought the issue with cruz’s mother is that she wasn’t in the US long enough before he was born. Something about being in the US so many years after your 14th birthday, or something along those lines.
glenn

7 days ago
That is correct CL, I sure hope that those who didn’t vote have learned their lesson, and come out in full force this time. I will be doing everything I can to remind them of Ferguson and what not voting can allow people to accomplish when you refuse to remain vigilant.
monicaangela

7 days ago
floriduh got some of it fixed… but you can’t fix stupid.
Harleigh

7 days ago
glenn – something like that. Who can keep up with the weirdnesses of Ted Cruz?
choicelady

7 days ago
MA – it’s not just the president. It MUST be the Congress, too!
choicelady

7 days ago
cruz is the new Santorum. Same old crazy, just new face. And what a face. Owww!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
carson is not connected to reality
Harleigh

7 days ago
KT – I never thought I’d find it, but Cruz is WORSE than Santorum.
choicelady

7 days ago
Monica, the Repubs didn’t take the Senate in 2012, they took it in 2014, an off year election when they have a higher percentage in turnout. They will likely lose the Senate back to the Dems in 2016 when our voters turn out as usual.
AdLib 7 days ago
Harleigh, not many of them are!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Ad–I understand what you’re saying; there is no way that if trump is NOT the nominee, that the nominee can “walk back” all of trump’s nonsense. If s/he wants to keep trump’s “base”, that is.
glenn

7 days ago
AdLib – I just read one (only one) article saying we might get back the House, too.
choicelady

7 days ago
CL, I’m hoping the DOJ will remain vigilant on this issue after President Obamas administration is out of office. I hope the next presidents cabinet continues the job.
monicaangela

7 days ago
You may be right CL. He’s crazier than a shithouse rat.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
MA – if any Dem wins, I think we’re safe for a time.
choicelady

7 days ago
Thank you for the correction AdLib, I meant 2014.
monicaangela

7 days ago
ppo this is the most bizarre cast of klowns ever
Harleigh

7 days ago
Is Cruz a Dominionist? It wouldn’t surprise me.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – evangelical I think
sillylittleme

7 days ago
2014 was the lowest turnout since 1943
Harleigh

BRB
glenn

slm, I’m quite sure of the difference.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I am not moving to Israel to fulfill some BS prophecy!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
NOT quite sure
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
CL, A dem just has to win this time, whichever dem wins the nomination. There is too much riding on this election. Just think about the Supreme Court and the Justices that reside there.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Haqrleigh, they get so much coverage, that clowns are the new norm now, God help us
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
KT – me neither
sillylittleme

7 days ago
slm, take your AK47 with you.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
MA – absolutely. I think more and more we have to stress that whoever gets the Dem nom we all have to vote for him or her.
choicelady

7 days ago
Anyone else think that Joe should take a run at the nomination?
Beatlex

7 days ago
glenn – Right, and Jebby and any other potential nom for the Repubs were too cowardly to refute Trump at the time (Jebby’s use of “anchor babies” will always expose his stunt of speaking Spanish as a phony gimmick) and as long as that is brought up in the GE, Repubs will lose big as the Latino and women’s vote goes “hugely” to the Dems.
AdLib 7 days ago
Beatlex – I seriously like Joe. Not sure about the impact at all.
choicelady

7 days ago
Beat, I’d love him to, but I think he’d be too fragile
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
I like to call bush, Yeb!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – nah the Davide is better and is made in Israel, I’d probably go for an uzi too!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
KT, Cruz is a Dominionist, so is his father.
monicaangela

7 days ago
kinda makes my old HP ticket of palin – bachmann for jebus look a little better by comparison.
Harleigh

7 days ago
AdLib – we, the descendants of immigrants, never had tests to come in. No such laws until 1952. So ALL of us owe citizenship to ‘anchor babies’ if the immigrants did not get naturalized.
choicelady

7 days ago
B – I voted for him in the primary a while back, I don’t think he really wants to run.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
MA – that’s accurate. Daddy Cruz is loopier than Palin.
choicelady

7 days ago
Monica, that surely makes him a dangerous man.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
monica no, they are a-wholes,pardon my spanish!
Beatlex

7 days ago
KT – Cruz and his father are the most extreme extremists I’ve ever seen. Make Perry look sane.
choicelady

7 days ago
Damn, I wish Christopher Hitchens was still living. And Hunter S. Thompson.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I don’t personally feel Joe should run, unless he feels he has to because he won’t have another chance in the future. I think it would be too much for him and his family after all they have been through lately.
monicaangela

7 days ago
I hear Cruz had a rectum transplant, and it rejected him.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Harleigh – Right and that’s a consistent trend. Off year elections are far less motivating to the party in power, they only represent motivation for the party out of power to take some power back. And generally speaking, the Repubs know that the fewer people who vote, the better they do because their demographic of old white people have a much stronger habit of voting in every election.
AdLib 7 days ago
PPO – so that means all Cruz is an asshole?
choicelady

7 days ago
HAHA! Good one PPO. I think his head got in the way.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
B, I thought the two words were interchangeable.
monicaangela

7 days ago
CL, Yup!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO – thank you for the confirmation. That was MY observation!
choicelady

7 days ago
Actually PPO, the transplant grew and what you see is what became of Cruz after it took over.
monicaangela

7 days ago
I still think Cruz in a fit of despair will follow Joe McCarthy into the dustbin of history…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
I wish that they could all do a backflip and disappear up their assholes.
Harleigh

7 days ago
MA – LOL!! What scares me about Cruz is how much his zealotry resembles McCarthy who he looks like.
choicelady

7 days ago
slm, maybe, but look at the carnage McC left in his wake
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
They will Harleigh, in time. Not soon enough though.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Yep KT, he’s a dangerous Canadian.
monicaangela

7 days ago
SLM – McCarthy got called out in public. So far no one has done it to Teddy.

Rubio is known here in Flori-duh as ‘Rubitard’, a chronic liar about his past and just about everything else. His parents came to Miami in 1956 years before Castro came to power in 1959. He has always claimed to be a ‘Refugee’ or ‘son of refugees’ although he was born in the US in 1971! Anchor baby. Much of his support is from non-English speaking third/fourth generation ‘refugees’ that have turned much of Miami into a Spanish only speaking Cuban ghetto. Castro has always played the US like a Caribbean steel drum by unloading Cuba’s prisons, hospitals and asylums into Miami. That is the reason Miami usually tops the list of worst cities to live in murikkka. If relations are normalized all the hundreds of thousands of Cubans in the US would no longer be ‘refugees’ and would lose their free benefits and have to go on welfare and medicaid as well if they don’t work. Rubio is just totally full of guano and bullshit. If the wannabe war pwezadant wants to cancel the agreement 15 months after it is in place then the other signatories are not obligated to either support a war or replace any sanctions. Iran is not another 3rd world country or weak like Iraq. We would lose yet another war. Murikkka has not won a war since 1945.

CL – True, racism has been the prime driver for the GOP since Obama’s election, which brought the hard reality down on their heads that white domination of America is ending. So of course, seeing more and more Latinos, growing quickly as a percentage of Americans, scares the hell out of them. Open racism is now a must to win over the core of the GOP, it’s kind of surreal to see in the 21st Century but makes sense as a last gasp by the white supremicists as they see their “natural” superiority evaporating before their eyes.

Talking about the exaggeration that religious extremists use to get money and attention, what about Huckabee constantly going for the most hateful and extreme religious rhetoric nowadays? I don’t think he believes the crap he spews, he just wants the money and power.

KT – I am always careful about the church tax issues since progressive churches obey existing laws and will be killed by that if it were to pass. Should be based on breaking the law – and for THAT I’m rooting to have it happen!

KT, if I could come up with a program, I think I might open me one of those Tax Exemption Emaculate churches…sounds like a good idea. ]

Huckabee has declared that The Marriage Nazi’s being jailed proves that Christianity has been criminalized. Will Christian extremists start getting violent now that a war has been declared by their leaders?
AdLib 7 days ago
MA – given America’s devotion to religion, you don’t NEED a program to have a tax exempt church.
choicelady

Does anyone know if any of those pastors cruz gave the sermon to, actually preached his sermon? Wouldn’t that be a violation of the law, CL?

AdLib, you know you are right about Huckabee…do you really think he’s in this to become the next President?
monicaangela

CL, I think any church that politicizes from the pulpit should have to pay taxes. Like George Carlin said, If they want to get in the game, make them pay their entrance fees, like everybody else.
KillgoreTrout

B – keep us posted
sillylittleme

SLM – I agree. Grift is the name of too many. but indiscriminate taxation would close progressive small churches leavning ONLY the large RW ones that can afford the tax.
choicelady

Beatlex–do you have any predictions about who will win, since it’s so close?
glenn

Here’s John Oliver’s segment on the churches exploiting the poor and believers, it’s hilarious and so true (“We’ve seen midgets grow!”):

CL, unlike some others, I’d have to at least come up with something that might convince me I was doing the right thing. I have a conscience you know, unlike some others.

I came in late, but has anyone commented on the utterly childish behavior of the GOP getting their kids to sign pledges not to rock the boat?
pinkpantheroz

KT – define ‘politicize’. Ours teach equality, the morality of marriage equality, etc. but never support partisan candidates no matter who.
choicelady

Excellent AdLib…thanks.

Choice – not if the law is clear as to actual actions taken by the church to administer to their flock not a money making scheme. Not for profit doesn’t include luxuries

Choice, might father told me that often, my mother told me to ignore him. I’m older now, and guess what…he was correct.
monicaangela

7 days ago
MA, right, but isn’t it SO childish and panicky?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
SLM – the law is pretty clear. To push a case for ripping away the exemption though, you have to be IN a service or church and observe first hand. That was due to an attack on one of our liberal churches based on a complaint from someone in another state who’d read a news story and made up a charge. So I am OK with having to have first hand not second hand knowledge of violations.
choicelady

7 days ago
Goodnight Harleigh!
monicaangela

7 days ago
Slippery slopes, for sure, CL. I know the RW evangelicals are pretty careful about what they preach in actual churches, most of them use some sort of code, or dog whistle. But if they explicitly say vote for this person or that, yank their tax exempt status. Jesus Camp made kids pray to a cardboard statue of George Bush.. That kind of thing.

The pledge the Donald signed,what is that? like a Frat pledge? How silly
Beatlex

Night Harleigh and SLM – great to see you here!
choicelady

7 days ago
CL – I’m actually expecting violence from the Christian extremists, this phony case of “being jailed for being Christian”, with most of the nation believing in this law breaker being in jail, seems the perfect storm for them to use their 2nd Amendment rights to “take back their country”. I worry that they’ll go for abortion clinics or some other symbol of “their enemy”.
AdLib 7 days ago
Nite slm! Take care!
AdLib 7 days ago
PPO–yup!
glenn

Night PPO!
AdLib 7 days ago
Goodnight all, I’ve really enjoyed your company, but it is getting late on this side of the country.

CL – That’s terrible to hear! Any surveillence video? We need as real police crackdown on these lunatics!
AdLib 7 days ago
MA and PPO–but trump may not honor his pledge if he doesn’t become the nominee. After all, if he doesn’t become the nominee, then that means the republican party hasn’t treated him “fairly”, so all bets are off!
glenn

I think too will take this time to say good night. Take care all.

AdLib – we can’t prove it, don’t have cameras. Just come in, things moved, a way of saying ‘we can do this’. We’re changing the locks.

Night KT! Have a great weekend!

glenn, I can see his twisted logic doing just that. Egg on face for the GOP either way
pinkpantheroz

Night KT – be well!

Glenn, this is the last one. If Trump doesn’t get the nomination, he still wins…after all, they have already paid him to back off, even if he says they didn’t.
monicaangela

I think I’m pushing off for the night, too. Up at 2:30 to take a homeless man to the bus station, and never really got back to sleep. Too OLD for this!!!

Goodnight to all leaving!
Beatlex

Beatlex – hope you improve all ways. Good luck regaining your health!
choicelady

7 days ago
Beatlex–trump and all of the other repubs signed a pledge that if they didn’t get the republican party nomination, that they would support whoever became the nominee.
glenn

7 days ago
CL – You really need cameras set up outside and inside your offices. It doesn’t cost too much, they even have systems at Costco, but surveillence is very important I think from this point forward. BTW, depending on the system, you can easily review footage on your computer/iPhone/etc. or see live footage. In these days and this environment, a good investment.
AdLib 7 days ago
CL,thx,I think I am heading the right direction now
Beatlex

goodnight, KT. Say a prayer that the Hayne Train gets picked up by the 49’ers!

If we’re talking football, what about Brady’s “win” over Goddell?

Night Beatlex, see you there!
AdLib 7 days ago
Damn, CL–that is horrible news.
glenn

7 days ago
glenn, the whole schemozzle was a disater from Day 1
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
It’s not a huge issue to me, glenn but I don’t like to see cheaters get away with cheating. On the other hand, the NFL and Goodell are so crooked and greedy, I can’t complain at something that hurts them either.
AdLib 7 days ago
A PR disaster no matter how one looks at it. And the Concussion debate will be front and center this year as well
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO–do you mean “deflategate”? Personally, I don’t like the patriots one bit. So, I believe that brady was in on it, but I have no facts to back it up. Just call me a conservative; I believe what I believe.
glenn

7 days ago
Maybe the NFL needs to expand the number of players on a roster to ensure concussion victims get enough recovery time
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Ad–the thing that pisses me off is that brady and billichek got away with cheating a few years ago with having the plays of the other teams, yet nothing was done. I think Gooddell was trying to “remedy” that in this case.
glenn

7 days ago
burden of proof, glenn. Sucks, doesn’t it? I’m with you on the Pats. Hate ’em
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO–maybe.
glenn

7 days ago
I know I may sound like someone who doesn’t know or like football but I do on both counts. I don’t see why they shouldn’t stop using the head to hit players. In the older days, they had leather helmets and tackled with the arms and chests. Shy is it a necessity for players to launch themselves head first at each other?
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad, in College Ball, Head to head is a foul. Should be the same in the Pros
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Ad–I agree about launching themselves at each other. I think there are more concussions due to artificial turf, also.
glenn

7 days ago
Ad, actually, maybe they should go back to leather helmets. That’d stop it quick smart!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Ad and PPO–and if we ruled the NFL, we could make it a better game!
glenn

7 days ago
For me, Brady destroying his phone confirmed his guilt. But he didn’t beat his wife so it’s not horrible, he just cheated in a game with many cheaters. I prefer cheaters to have to pay for cheating but not a big deal to me.
AdLib 7 days ago
PPO – Thanks for pointing that out. Then there really is no necessity for the NFL to have different rules from the NCAA on use of the head…except that they want to profit from the violence of head collisions that excite fans.
AdLib 7 days ago
Alright, fellows, time for me to call it a night. As always, enjoyed VOX. Thanks, Ad, for providing such a great platform to “let it all hang out”. G’nite.
glenn

Well, I’d better let you guys head to bed. Long time yet for me, but I have stuff to do. See you all next week. Great chat as usual.
