Hows that PPO?
AdLib 7 days ago
Yes I know, a little typo.

Hello PPO!

finestKind, Ad. Will be watching the Rugby World Cup later

What’s on the agenda tonight?
monicaangela

Hello glenn!
monicaangela

Monica – The fallout from the debate, Afghanistan, Israel and Palestinians, Trump and Carson, a virtual political buffet!

Hi all

Hello sillylittleme!

hi, slm!
pinkpantheroz

Hello, Monicaangela, hello Ad, hello PPO, hello SLM. How is everyone tonight? We have been having just glorious weather here in GA!
glenn

7 days ago
How was everyone’s week
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hi slm!
AdLib 7 days ago
Okay, so where do I begin. I guess first I’ll say the pundits are really exaggerating Hillary’s so called win
monicaangela

7 days ago
MA – ya a little troubling, #stormiscoming
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Did bernie just hand the nomination to hillary with his ‘eough’ line?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
I’m doing fine glenn. Happy to hear you’re having great weather. It isn’t too bad here in Ohio either.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Pink – no, actually everyone is saying Hill who? Except for every media outlet, of course.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM…Troubling storm? Elaborate.
monicaangela

7 days ago
monica – Agreed, Hillary did as well as one would have anticipated. For that matter, Bernie did too. I don’t think there was much of a change in the dynamics of the race.
AdLib 7 days ago
SLM–can you give us more info on #stormiscoming?
glenn

7 days ago
Hey glenn!
AdLib 7 days ago
‘Allo!
Beatlex

7 days ago
MA – that’s one of the hashtags that is a term for the worldwide awakening of the people that we are all getting screwed by the oligarchy.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Back atcha, Beatlex!
glenn

7 days ago
PPO I don’t believe Bernie handed the nomination to Hillary by being a gentleman and expressing what everybody else was thinking.
monicaangela

7 days ago
PPO – I think Bernie’s covering Hillary on the emails made him the bigger man.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey B
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Ad – precisely, yet somehow the standing O is for Hill…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Ma, good point, probably better for him, actually, like Ad just said
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Adlib, there wasn’t. I actually think Hillary did poorly. After all, we have to remember she has been debating since high school, and had 24 debates with Barack Obama when she lost to him during the 2008 election.
monicaangela

7 days ago
MA and Ad–agree completely on Bernie’s gentlemanly behavior. Hillary still should have to EARN the Dem nomination.
glenn

7 days ago
Diarrhea Donald strikes again!Much to the R’s dismay,LOL
Beatlex

7 days ago
Hey Harleigh – how’s the job?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
slm – The establishment wants Hillary. Wall Street is a huge contributor to Hillary and the MSM corps are in business with them.
AdLib 7 days ago
Good Ol’ Reds under the Bed drivel!, Beat!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Ad – NO!! I am so shocked!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
It is a micromanaged job. but money is money.
Harleigh

7 days ago
SLM…Excellent. We really do need a revolution televised or otherwise to relieve ourselves of those that would buy and sell us as if we were property. Not to mention steal from us every chance they get because they also own the justice system.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Beatlex–Diarrhea Donald is a good one. Which strike are you talking about? The debate demands or the truth that gwb was prez when 9/11 happened?
glenn

Hey Harleigh and Beatlex!
AdLib 7 days ago
His numbers in Boston proper were 26,000 inside and believe me I crawled through twice to distribute signs, it seemed like far more. It was endless. Outside were another 6,000 that couldn’t get in. They are still reporting it as 20,000 attendees.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn,he never shuts up! it is a running joke,Bernie is a Commie! LOL
Beatlex

7 days ago
hey al and all. brb…
Harleigh

7 days ago
PPO, yes I believe Ad is correct. Anyone who knows anything about debating would tell you Hillary did an excellent job of obfuscation, but that is an elementary way to win a debate. It is more difficult to win a debate with the truth.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Harleigh – I’ll fill a bowl and pass it directly!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
thx slm i need it
Harleigh

7 days ago
Hey Harleigh.
glenn

7 days ago
Glenn, Hillary if she wanted to be kind to this nation would eject herself from the race and discontinue her attempts to work for the Oligarchs, who happen to be her friends now that she has joined their club.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Hello Harleigh!!
monicaangela

7 days ago
Here ya go Harleigh, relax and enjoy
sillylittleme

7 days ago
monica – There is a backlash potential for Hillary’s strong but walled-off style. I think it worked in the current environment, while she has been under attack by the Repubs and Benghazi/email crap, with questions about her viability. But look out if she feels it’s all behind her and she can go on the attack against Bernie and other Dems, the anti-establishment sentiment in the public nowadays could turn back on her then.
AdLib 7 days ago
I am having trouble getting my comments to post, so I’ll be back in a while.
glenn

7 days ago
Beatlex, Diarrhea Donald is telling the truth this time. It is true, GWB was President during the 9/11 attack. Jeb! needs to get that through his head, he should also ask the families of those that died in the Twin Towers attack, and the families of those that died in Iraq under his failed attempt to take over that country what they think.
monicaangela

7 days ago
MA – we both know that won’t happen, but I agree. Once rejected, rerunning when one is so divisive and really needs the independents to win, should be discouraged.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Okay, seems like they’re posting now.
glenn

7 days ago
Hello
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Monica–I can’t believe that jebbie keeps saying his brother kept us safe! How can he say that? He is lying through his teeth! Glad to see Diarreah Donald telling the truth, for once.
glenn

7 days ago
So this happened about 50 miles north of us:

AdLib 7 days ago
AdLib, I believe a first debate is always the opportunity to feel out an opponent. I believe that those in the Sanders camp and those in the O’Malley camp, and maybe even in the other two camps will be ready for her during the next debate. I also believe this is why The DNC chair scheduled so few debates. Hillary is only good first time out, after that she’s predictable and begins to lie drastically. She won’t be able to keep it up. Obama proved that.
monicaangela

7 days ago
glenn – This chat function can use up memory sometimes. If it has problems posting comments, just close then reopen your browser, it should work fine!
AdLib 7 days ago
Glenn, Jebbie has a bad case of brother worship…his brother had a bad case of Daddy worship, I guess they find it hard to face the fact that none of them amount to a hill of beans.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Monica,for sure,I was talking about his constant BS.He says something honest by accident once in a while
Beatlex

7 days ago
Yikes Ad
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Thanks for the tip, Ad. Seems to be working okay now.
glenn

7 days ago
Monica–great summary of the bushes!
glenn

7 days ago
MA – they are surrounded by yes men and have been their whole lives, the lot of them
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Ad–is that a flood from rain or something bursting?
glenn

7 days ago
monica – It’s clear that Hillary has a great staff and was well prepared to deflect and redirect questions she didn’t want to answer. “How can you win when you’re an insider?” “I may have lived in the WH and been married to a man President for 8 years and worked with Congress on health care and my contributors are Wall Street and major corporations…but I’m a woman so that kinda “trumps” my being an insider, right?”
AdLib 7 days ago
How bad are things for Rand Paul? He is now “afraid” of what Bernie Sanders might do,like yurn the country commie! It is no wonder his “campaign” is in the toilet
Beatlex

7 days ago
slm, I believe the electorate will begin to see through Hillary. Once her connections to Wall Street are made public and expressed to enough people by word of mouth, she will have a much harder row to hoe. The MSM appears to be protecting her for the moment, but as we know, they are in it for the money. If Bernie or one of the other candidates solicit them, they will be only too happy to take their money and help them destroy her.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Beatlex–well rand did have that “dumbass” live tweet thingy.
glenn

7 days ago
Beatlex, isn’t it terrible that he can continue to gain support with all of the obvious BS he allows to spew through his lips? I can’t see how any sane human being could even begin to think about voting for him or supporting him in any way.
monicaangela

7 days ago
glenn,he is a dumbass! True to form.He seems to be in denial.poor boy,lol
Beatlex

7 days ago
Yep, Jebbie is so right! “My brother kept America safe! If you don’t count the biggest attack on the continental US and all the people killed in Iraq and by ISIS. So there!”
AdLib 7 days ago
Thanks Glenn, but with more time I could give you an even better summary.
monicaangela

7 days ago
SLM, that’s probably why they are so out of touch with the rest of the world.
monicaangela

7 days ago
glenn – The floods and mudslides came from a torrential sudden rain. I saw the lightning on the horizon but didn’t know that the rain and hail was falling like that!
AdLib 7 days ago
MA–I really don’t want to see Hillary “destroyed”. She has served this country for a long time, and some of the republican stunts against her are just so pathetic. That being said, I also don’t think that Bernie should nor do I think he will ever, “solicit” Wall Streeters. I would much rather see Bernie’s support coming from people like you and me.
glenn

7 days ago
Beatlex – Is Rand Paul still running?
AdLib 7 days ago
MA – re MSM & Hill, he won’t take their money and that is why they fear him.
sillylittleme

Hey Kes
sillylittleme

Ad–wow! Are you all in LA getting any of that rain?
glenn

7 days ago
Hey, Kids! How’s everyone tonight?
kesmarn

Who here thinks Joe will go for it? I wish he would,but he has to get in by Mondat IMO
Beatlex

7 days ago
hey kes
Harleigh

7 days ago
Hey Kes–I’m doing well; how about yu?
glenn

7 days ago
monica – I don’t think the MSM has been protecting Hillary, they’ve been singing the Repub mantra of “EMAILS!” for the past months. Now though, I do think they like the idea of “one of their corporate own” now looking more electable.
AdLib 7 days ago
AdLib, LOL!!! She forgot to say that Time Warner, the Parent company of CNN is one of her major contributors. She also should lighten up on that I’m a woman crap. After all, the last time out she was saying gender shouldn’t matter. She’s relying on women to vote for her just because she’s a woman, and she feels the rest of the nation will vote for her because there has never been a woman president. We all want a woman president, just not her.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Doing well here. but I saw on the news tonight that SoCal seems to be getting a mud bath!
kesmarn

7 days ago
Beatlex–Not sure about Joe joining the race. I think he’s a very decent man, but I fear he may be too close to corporations, just like Hillary.
glenn

Hi everyone!
funksands

7 days ago
Hey Funk! How are you?
glenn

7 days ago
Hey, funk! What did you think of the debate?
kesmarn

7 days ago
glenn – Unfortunately, nope, that rain all stayed north of LA but it’s a glimpse of things to come. We’re expecting a lot of rain this year due to a big El Nino. Lots more mudslides and floods to come (though in most of LA, we won’t have those problems).
AdLib 7 days ago
B – Joe is not running
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Not bad Glenn thanks.
funksands

SoCal is so crybaby! ‘It’s hot, It’s dry, It’s on fire, It’s wet, dang mudslides. LOL

kesmarn

Hey Harleigh
funksands

7 days ago
Glenn, I don’t want to see anybody destroyed, not even Hillary. I have followed Hillary for a long time and realize she will say or do anything to get into the drivers seat…..not for the people, but to continue a path she has mapped out for herself. She wants to get rich, help her friends get rich, and she wants to go down in history with a white washed record that makes it look as though she never earned a penny under the table and was tantamount to a saint. We can’t let that happen.
monicaangela

Hey Funk – like your location
sillylittleme

It’s quiet here
funksands

7 days ago
Hello Kesmarn!
monicaangela

7 days ago
Kes–I know you didn’t ask me; but I’m going to put my 2 cents in anyway. I think the debate showed who the adults are between the two parties.
glenn

7 days ago
monica, I look at the “woman” card as also being double edged. It will alienate the less equality minded white men and after a while, could seem too heavy handed to the more independently minded women if it’s overused.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey, MA!
kesmarn

7 days ago
Right MA
sillylittleme

glenn,just to shake things up.I don’t think it matters who is going to be President.Do anyone here think that congress would go along with Bernie.Not likely more gridlock.

The floods in California after the fires and the drought make it look like apocalypse in that state…Anyone believe we may be suffering from “CLIMATE CHANGE.”

Monica apparently since 1977 Exxon has

Hey Funk! Yep, I agree, I thought both Hillary and Bernie looked strong in the debate. We’ll see how the next one goes and where the numbers settle to after a couple of weeks.
AdLib 7 days ago
If one gets a chance Bill Maher is really good tonight
sillylittleme

AdLib, that card is for the primary only. Mark my words, if she wins the primary, all of a sudden she will drop it like a hot potato.

sillylittleme

Hello Murph!
monicaangela

7 days ago
hey murph
Harleigh

7 days ago
Beatlex–I disagree. We Americans can NOT let the republicans take the White House. The damage they have done in the states where they have total control is horrendous! So, while we may still have gridlock, it’s better than republicans totally having control. In addition, republicans can’t even govern in the House of Representatives where they do have a majority, so we can NOT have a repub in the White House.
glenn

7 days ago
We go to the polls Monday,it is a close 3 way race,not likely to be a majority anyway.The price of oil has hurt our economy
Beatlex

7 days ago
Monica – Yep, anyone in CA who doesn’t believe in Climate Change is under three feet of mud.
AdLib 7 days ago
SLM, it’s disgusting. Bill Moyers sure as hell wouldn’t get hired on PBS today.

X, ten years ago did you expect Canada to become a petro-state?
funksands

B…so you don’t like CT either. I can’t stand to even look at him on the screen. Makes my skin crawl…what a poor excuse for an undercover republican operative MSNBC has decided to make a main part of their line-up…disgusting.

Hey Kes! UpChuck Todd is such a Repub moron, have unfortunately seen his MTP Daily on MSNBC, he makes tortured puns and is snide towards everything having to do with Dems while pumping up Kasich and other Repubs. What a douche.
AdLib 7 days ago
AdLib, even those who do believe in climate change are under there with them. This might be a great opportunity to kick ass and take names while they have that captive audience.

The Emperor of Douches, AdLib.

Harleigh

Funk – As long as Dems have a majority in The Senate and a Dem is in the WH, very possible to change the SCOTUS balance! If Repubs filibuster, look for the nuclear option, well worth it to change the course of the SCOTUS back to the middle/left.

Did anyone watch Maddow tonight. Wow, fracking in Oklahoma is become a real serious problem. Hundreds of earthquakes, and they refuse to stop…it’s sad when people prefer profits over the welfare of human beings and property.

Murph, and that’s the problem. People who are in danger continue to put these idiots into office. Why, because they somehow believe that are going to keep those undesirables from getting free stuff. It’s true, sometimes people can’t see the forest because of the trees.
monicaangela

Yes,he is saying run deficits to spark our stagnant economy.While Harper won’t.Trudeau has some older,really experienced help too

Ohio actually has an issue on the ballet this Nov. that would demolish gerrymandering in the state — effective immediately if passed. I so wish I could vote for that one about 15,000 times. I’ll be working the polls. Anyone know a good hacker for Diebold machines?

I know Kes, they have a very misleading ad being issued here in Ohio exchanging the numbers for the Marijuana vote to the number for the Gerrymandering vote. Marijuana is 3 and gerrymandering is 2 I believe. They have switched them.
monicaangela

Funk,yes,I agree with you,we are getting like America infrastructure,behind!

Murph-that’s what I was afraid of–the power of oil. OK seems to be a good state for solar and/or wind power. Any talk of those two things there?

Democrats cheering for austerity, dysfunctional government and eventually recession. Republicans will always have a big advantage in national politics as long as we celebrate this BS

Actually, gerrymandering is Issue #1, MA. And the MJ issues (competing) are #2 and #3.

Sorry–Ad–glad to hear…
glenn

Murph, I don’t believe it’s propaganda, I believe it is built in prejudice, a failure to realize that the privilege that think they have is in effect a placebo to get them to do the bidding of their lords and masters, the Oligarchs that continue to play with their minds.

MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
MA – so spot on
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph–OMG–you’re kidding! No, I take that back–I know better. Solar and wind power start-ups should be getting at least the same subsidies that big oil gets. But that would make sense, and we can’t have anything making sense in a republican-led state.
glenn

7 days ago
That’s exactly what they’re proposing here too, AdLib. Impartial committee and lots of openness to public input.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Kes, so they even have the numbers screwed around so bad that they leave 1 out altogether. I am going to try to find a clip of the commercial and place on OT if I can.
monicaangela

That’s disgusting, MA — that they would try to confuse people like that. The 2 marijuana issues are already confusing enough!

Kes, you know how politicians are, they simply can’t allow the ignorant electorate to have the opportunity to actually vote for what would be in their best interest, they have to muddy the water in some way to make it appear those that vote are stupid, or just don’t have any business being allowed to vote in the first place.

BTW, watching Maddow in the background and she’s reporting on Obama ruling out any more drilling in the Arctic. So when he let Shell go up there and fail, he was attacked by the left but was he playing the long game once again, knowing they would fail then he could lock the door after them and still say, “Hey, I let them try.” He’s a genius, I think it was the long con!

I know it was a while up the thread about Hillary trying to get votes because she’s a woman. As a woman, I wouldn’t vote for her because she’s a woman than I voted for President Obama because he’s black.

If Trump turns on Cruz though, because he sees Cruz ascending, look out! Could get really good!

Funk – What do you mean? That Bernie would beat all Repubs or could lose to any of them?

Funksands, Trump is having the time of his life, he’s being noticed, he’s getting publicity, he’s selling hats and shirts, he’s doing what he loves…running for President? Not so much, that’s just the way the carnival barker brings in the crowds.

Murph – I think Hillary is past Benghazi now, thanks to McCarthy and those Repubs following his lead.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad, I simply think it changes the dynamic of the race a bit
funksands

Funk – How?
AdLib 7 days ago
Has anybody heard about the anti-Hillary ad where they have two of the four killed in Benghazi speaking from the grave against Hillary? Truly low down and disgusting.

Ad…this week is critical…presuming the FBI gives here the AOK
MurphTheSurf3

Murph, don’t be so sure. The MSM and the DNC are playing a good game, but the web and the general public says different. Hillary is a phony.
monicaangela

In a way that its a little harder to predict turnout, and traditional voter behavior. I think he’d attract some conservative votes, and lose some moderates for the Dems
funksands

7 days ago
I’m not so sure Monica.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Funk – In national polls right now, Bernie beats Trump by bigger margins than Hillary…and all the other Repubs. Bernie attracts a lot of indies and even some Repubs. Trump, Cruz, Rubio, Carson? All are hard right and won’t attract Dems or indies.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT…heard of the ad and saw it….disturbing esp. when compared with Bush and the butcher’s bill in Iraq.

KT, do you believe he actually wants to try to win a general election?
monicaangela

KT – Yes, saw a report on that and that two sets of parents have come out against it in outrage.
AdLib 7 days ago
I think so Monica.
KillgoreTrout

Obama won self-described moderates in a big way against Romney. I think Bernie would have a harder time. I don’t think it gives him less of a chance, I just think it changes things
funksands

Just when you think they can’t sink any lower, they do.
KillgoreTrout

Murph – That’s true, I was just stating the obvious that she was free and clear from the House Benghazi committee…and I think she’ll slice them up next week. Am looking forward to that.
AdLib 7 days ago
Monica, he does now. If he drops a lot in the near future, he’ll bail fast though
funksands

Exactly Adlib, Bernie will be doing a lot better when he gets his answer to guns and the democratic socialist question right.

Hillary says she’ll hold the NRA accountable. Hmmmmm!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad…I have to think if there was any real exposure from the FBI that her campaign would be waved off from the DOJ
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
KT, I do believe her on that. Guns is one area that I think Hillary can be counted on
funksands

7 days ago
I hope so funk.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I can’t wait to see that KT, I can’t even imagine Trump believing he could actually be President. Imagine that, where would his allies come from. he says horrible things about everybody, and he appears to think he is going to be King if he becomes President. He really doesn’t know the hiearchy of this country very well.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Funk – I’d disagree with you on that, moderates would seem to have a lot more to be attracted to in Bernie’s populist policies than the shallow and hateful RW jargon of Trump/Carson/Cruz. Current polls bear that out.
AdLib 7 days ago
Trump is locked in a big Bubble with a capital T on it.
KillgoreTrout

Trump’s fatal flaw is that he looks down on everybody.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hillary says she went up to Wall Street and told them to cut it out…I guess she plans to do the same for the NRA. LOL!!!
monicaangela

7 days ago
Good points, monica. Bernie’s defense of his previous pro-gun votes, saying it’s rural vs. big city, may have some truth to it but doesn’t fly for Progressives. He just has to pull a Hillary and flip on the issue, explaining he’s finally fed up with all the killing.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad, we’ll see. I think there is a bigger stigma to the “socialist” label than you are giving credit for. Bernie would have a big advantage is the GOP is a hard right winger. I think he’d have a harder time beating a soft right winger
funksands

7 days ago
*if*
funksands

7 days ago
funk, there are no soft RWers.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT, Rubio and Bush I consider soft right-wingers.
funksands

7 days ago
I don’t. Bush is putting on an act., and so is Rubio.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph – I don’t know, Obama would be smart not to back channel anything to Hillary about the FBI investigation, if it came out it would stain his legacy with corrupt behavior and he has been pretty clean so far.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT, they’ll pivot slightly if they get the nomination
funksands

7 days ago
Ad, I understood what Bernie was saying. Just as he did with the democratic socialist explanation, he just doesn’t appear to be able to explain it in terms that the average person can understand. I believe in his mind he knows what he is talking about, but you know how it is, sometimes you have to break it down so that everybody else can understand. I don’t believe Bernie has learned to do that yet…given time I believe he will figure it out.
monicaangela

7 days ago
You know that. It’s all puppet theater during the nomination
funksands

7 days ago
Rubio is a bagger, isn’t he?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Funk – Look at Obama, he was stained with being a socialist, Marxist, Muslim, anti-colonialist, commie, terrorist. And he won.
AdLib 7 days ago
Bush will follow the family plan.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT, yes he is, and of the worst kind…so is Cruz and the other politicians in the race. Well, maybe not Paul, but the rest surely are.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Yep!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad..not speaking of anything illegal or from Obama….but the DOJ can signal its direction in many ways…
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Ad certainly that’s true. He also ran as a moderate consensus-building peacemaker. That and his utterly compelling presence won him a lot of votes.
funksands

7 days ago
With the GOP imploding, I don’t think a true bagger has a chance.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Funk – I agree that Bush and Rubio are trying to position themselves as softer right but Rubio wants 4 wars and wants women to have to die in childbirth and Jeb wants to kill SS and Medicare. Not really so soft.
AdLib 7 days ago
Bernie is a self-described democratic socialist. That’s different than bullshit craziness
funksands

7 days ago
Comparatively Ad, not objectively
funksands

7 days ago
KT, that’s who is going to win the nomination. Anecdotally conservatives are pissed that Romney won the nomination. They won’t let a fake conservative win again
funksands

7 days ago
Ad, President Obama won because he was able to pull off something no other politician has been able to do. He was able to unite the people, all of the people under a theme “Yes We Can” something that gave ownership to every person that voted for him. Most people I believe helped him win, because it was a heavy lift, and if we didn’t pull it off, we would have all been losers. The politicians running in this election could learn a lot from what Obama did in that campaign.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Monica – Yes but I still don’t think he’s near a winning argument on guns. I really think he needs to come on over all the way to the Progressive side on gun control and explain why he has. Being honest of course.
AdLib 7 days ago
funk, do you think there more baggers than traditional repubs?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I think Bernie is fully capable of wining against any of the current GOP candidates. I think the voting dynamic would just be different than if Hillary was the nominee.
funksands

7 days ago
KT for sure.
funksands

7 days ago
Murph – Right, just wpuldn’t want Obama getting hurt trying to give Hillary a wrongful leak about the FBI.
AdLib 7 days ago
It’s an interesting question, funk.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT, most traditional Republicans now self-describe as “Independent”
funksands

7 days ago
Funk – True, compared to the top Repubs, the majority of candidates look softer. But in a GE, all the Dem would need to do is quote whoever the Repub is from the primaries and they would look like a frothing loony.
AdLib 7 days ago
Gotta go! See you guys!
Beatlex

Really, funk?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Take care B!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad, you are correct. I do believe he is on the side of the Progressives when it comes to guns. His rural vs. urban comment was regarding his votes in the senate…Remember, he did have to run for election in a rurual state. Sometimes you have to appear to be in favor of something 100% when maybe you’re only 30 or 40% behind it. That’s why I say, he will eventually figure out how to sell his oppostion to the gun laws we have today. I truly believe he is in favor of the same things that the majority of us are. None of us want to see these horrible mass killings continue.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Its an interesting dance as traditional Republicans hold their nose to vote for their team, while the deeply disturbed wing of the GOP simply hangs with the GOP to maintain political power. Who blinks first?

Monica – Becoming the first AA President, with the middle name of Hussein, he sure did pull off an historic win that brought many Americans together. But I think Americans now want to continue that kind of thing, thus, a Bernie presidency looking so unlikely to many right now, has a path to follow.

And Obama had a more viable opponent than Hillary or Bernie will have. The negatives on Trump, Cruz, etc. are so high!
AdLib 7 days ago
Adlib, I agree with what you are saying, and I do believe Bernie is the next one to assume that position. He’s been in government a long time, but he has a pristine voting record in my opinion. And, I believe he will be excellent for this nation as President.
monicaangela

And consider that no matter which Repub wins the nom, Dems will have a majority of women, Latinos, gays, AAs, younger voters…the numbers just won’t be there for extremists Repub.

He’s insulted them left and right throughout the primary. Remember Carly being ugly? And the Fox woman bleeding from her whatever?
AdLib 7 days ago
And Trump insulting Bush’s wife for being Latino?
AdLib 7 days ago
The anti-Trump, anti-woman ad just requires editing those clips together.
AdLib 7 days ago
Night Murph, get some rest!
AdLib 7 days ago
Maybe. I think it will drive a lot of non-white women to the Dems. But the old, white vote would need Trump to punch a woman in the face on live tv to abandon the “R” vote.
funksands

7 days ago
Even then, they may like his strength in punching a woman.
AdLib 7 days ago
Think of all the endorsements from NFL players he could get if he punched out a woman!
AdLib 7 days ago
Trump is leading all other GOP candidates in the woman vote

I personally know a few women that wouldn’t mind serving time to get a crack at him. :-)

Trump leading in women voters is like saying Transformers 4 is a smarter film than Transformers 3.
AdLib 7 days ago
Well it is.
funksands

I think if you punched Trump in the face, your fist would get suctioned into his lips like a toilet plunger.

I find the whole GOP primary utterly fascinating.

Ad, my laptop is going to run out of juice. Good seeing you again. Hope you and your family are good. Hope to see you next week. Pierre Morrell is the guy. District 13, not District 9

Oh, my bad! Have you seen District 13? I haven’t.
AdLib 7 days ago
Considering the genre, thought Blomkamp made more sense.

But Morel may be great for it, I saw that he’s a cinematographer turned director so that could bode well.
