Hi everyone – be sure to say “Hi” or “BeenCrazi” when you check in. See you at 7 pm PDT!

Evening all – check in at any time you like. LOTS to talk about tonight!

Well it’s just a matter of time until the Behghazi commission finds that email from Blumenthal to HRC about the guns and wmd’s they sent to ISIS in Europe for baby parts that they will trade for drugs to support PP.
Harleigh

7 days ago
I know, i know – and that’s why one of the zanies said they “needed more time to get to the important stuff.” Yeah – I’d defer that to after 11 hours of nothing. Sure…
choicelady

Good evening CL, Harleigh.
glenn

7 days ago
Hey glenn! How are you?
choicelady

7 days ago
Doing well, CL. Can’t stay long tonight; going to Florida tomorrow for my sister’s 70th birthday (my older sister).
glenn

7 days ago
HI ladies. Well I had to work but caught thetail end where Cummins gave the commission the punchline.
Harleigh

7 days ago
glenn – wow have a great time! On the other hand, do you risk anything from the hurricane in Mexico? Stay alert down there!
choicelady

7 days ago
Harleigh – he was marvelous, wasn’t he?
choicelady

7 days ago
where in floriduh?
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh–I think Hillary did a sterling job at that stupid hearing; but Cummins was the star!
glenn

7 days ago
Harleigh–Dunedin.
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – Cummins was great, but as one who lived through a 2-hour oral exam, I think HILLARY deserves the silver star for cool under fire!
choicelady

7 days ago
It was nothing like the trolls at the Hill or Newsmax said about her being perp walked to prison! LMAO Not that I ever go there and poke trolls mind you.
Harleigh

7 days ago
CL–don’t think there’s any risk from the hurricane; maybe some rain. Talked to my nephew this morning; he’s driving over to Dunedin from Stuart (IOW from the east coast to the west coast) and he didn’t say anything about the weather, so I’m hoping for the best.
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – stay safe. Harleigh = I saw her leave the house. On her own, alone, no “perp walk” since among other things, she broke no laws. NONE.
choicelady

7 days ago
No biggie on the weather down here currently.
Harleigh

7 days ago
CL–I really think it was a toss-up, because without Cummins (and the other Dems like Schiff and Duckworth), the repubs would not have been taken to task. Hillary did a great job of not rising to their bait; and Cummins just ripped their bait out of their hands, IMO!
glenn

7 days ago
I saw on the weather reports that it seems the Texas coast, maybe LA will get hit. From there? Anyone’s guess. It’s now down to the 3rd largest storm ever. Yikes.
choicelady

7 days ago
They got nothin and proved it. the RWNJ are furious.
Harleigh

7 days ago
glenn – I do agree! Gowdy said ‘nothing new’ as if that somehow proved something nefarious. One tells nothing new when one is telling the truth.
choicelady

7 days ago
glenn – I am so glad the Dems on the committee stuck it to the GOP. I’ve never seen such infantile behavior as from the Republican members.
choicelady

7 days ago
Well at least Gowdy Doody can still lie about all the secret testimony! muhahaha
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh – not much stay secret, does it?
choicelady

7 days ago
Is this working? I’m getting stuck and might have to change computers.
choicelady

7 days ago
they need to have more votes repealing obamacare, PP ACORN and the IRS. the RWNJ”s are furious that Lois was not guilty of any crimes as well! Those poor little stupid baggers.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh–not only did they prove they got nothin’, Gowdy admitted it! But the rwnj are not going to give up. Scarborough said on his show this morning that he still has questions, but the republicans on the committee didn’t ask them. For the life of me, I can’t imagine any other questions to be asked!
glenn

7 days ago
CL–you’re coming through loud and clear!
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – if Scarborough has questions, why did he not tell the committee what was on his mind?
choicelady

7 days ago
I see you cl!!!! go towards the light!!!!……..
Harleigh

7 days ago
glenn – seems OK for now…
choicelady

7 days ago
Harleigh – LOL!!!!!
choicelady

7 days ago
Harleigh–they have appointed or are going to appoint another committee to investigate PP, and they have come up with a “filibuster proof” way of repealing Obamacare, so when it goes to the Senate, it will pass.However, some senators are saying it “doesn’t go far enough.” Bunch of morons and a waste oxygen, not to mention MY tax dollars!
glenn

7 days ago
Well why was Stevens there with 3 mercs in a empty rental in the middle of the night? LOL
Harleigh

7 days ago
One thing – I know lots of us have not been happy that for some years it seemed as if Hillary was being handed the nom. After the last few weeks, I’d say she earned whatever she has gotten. ELEVEN HOURS???? That is a national record, and she held up to it all with substance.
choicelady

7 days ago
CL–because if the questions are answered, then what is Scarborough going to talk about on his show? How will he bash Hillary if she answers the questions, though, once again, I can’t figure out what the questions are. Maybe Mika should read the seven previous committees’ reports to him.
glenn

7 days ago
Harleigh – some of the committee implied she was having it off the night the four died. Now the specter of Stevens doing something illicit. Shows what THEIR preoccupations and experience all are.
choicelady

7 days ago
Well it’s easier to stand up to bullshit when half the panel and country know it’s pure BS.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Allo!
Beatlex

7 days ago
Beatlex – Allo to you as well. How is a Harper-free Canada sitting with you?
choicelady

7 days ago
CL–I must agree with you; if ever you saw a demonstration of presidential presence, you saw it yesterday in that hearing room. She outObamaed President Obama for calmness, collectedness, and coolness. All the while Gowdy was working up a NIxonian sweat!
glenn

7 days ago
Hey Beatlex–from the land of liberals!
glenn

7 days ago
hey beatlex
Harleigh

7 days ago
glenn – Gowdy looked sick at the end. That oily sheen – made him more reptilian than ever.
choicelady

7 days ago
CL–Gowdy always looks sick to me; his facial structure is just so out of whack, IMO.
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – I have had my reservations about Hillary. I don’t have many anymore.
choicelady

7 days ago
glenn – he took his hair styling from the late Jim Trafficant. Not a good choice…
choicelady

7 days ago
I think he must use too much hair grease and it runs down his face.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh – I don’t think so. I think that IS his face.
choicelady

7 days ago
CL–I still have my reservations about Hillary’s ties with corporate America. However, I have been trying to be objective, and I do think that businesses should have a place at the table; it just shouldn’t be the ONLY place.
glenn

7 days ago
lol a honky hick greaser
Harleigh

7 days ago
To all pols who sweat oil sweat I have ONE suggestion – witch hazel.
choicelady

7 days ago
Harleigh–eeww
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – I think she’d agree with you.
choicelady

7 days ago
I bet he has to pay triple to get a ho even by the hour. eeewwwww
Harleigh

7 days ago
CL–I was very impressed with Hillary’s interview with Rachel Maddow tonight. Did you see it?
glenn

7 days ago
nope
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh–stop–you’re right–that’s even more eeewwww!
glenn

7 days ago
I got into it with bank reform advocate, Ellen Brown. She wants all small banks no big ones, but our experiences in Sacramento showed the small banks were often as crooked as large ones and some large ones OK. It lies in good regulation, and that is what HRC advocates.
choicelady

7 days ago
Harleigh–are you saying nope you didn’t see the interview?
glenn

7 days ago
Just fine Harl,that is the way we do it here,if we want change we have no problem voting to throw the bums out,usually between 5-10 years.Justin Trudeau is going to spend to kickstart our economy,we need it anyway.Our Parties generally govern from the middle once in power.We can`t touch you guys for all out brawling,the party here gets their way on all bills.Seems to work better than what you guys do.Like majority rules
Beatlex

7 days ago
glenn – yes, watching with one eye, and the clock with the other. VERY good interview.
choicelady

7 days ago
beautiful day here! hi everybody
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
I missed it. I got kind over RM when she started saying the same setup and question four times over and over.
Harleigh

7 days ago
CL–and therein lies the problem. What exactly is “good regulation” and who oversees it, and who pays for it?
glenn

7 days ago
Harleigh – that all sounds VERY good. Now if the worst happens and a GOP gets in, move over and give us room. We’re coming your way!
choicelady

7 days ago
hey ppo
Harleigh

7 days ago
glenn – Dodd Frank did a lot, and we can get more IF voters are sensible and give us a decent Congress! We had excellent oversight for years — can do it again.
choicelady

7 days ago
Hi PPO!!!
choicelady

7 days ago
Beatlex–lately, I think almost any civilized country governs better than we do. Mostly because we have the rwnj who don’t want to govern; they want to obstruct government. And, right now, they are doing a damn fine job of it to this country’s detriment.
glenn

7 days ago
just saw the highlights of the useless hearing. HRC done good, didn’t she?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
glenn – we need a constitutional amendment – if you hate government, you cannot run to represent it.
choicelady

7 days ago
Hey PPO, how goes it down under?
glenn

7 days ago
PPO – HRC done bloody brilliantly!
choicelady

7 days ago
We cannot change all the gerrymandering and get the house back for a long time.
Harleigh

7 days ago
PPO–Yes, Hillary did a great job. She was cool and Gowdy was sweating. Kudos to Elijah Cummins, too.
glenn

7 days ago
Harleigh – the DOJ is investigating more and more of these cases. The only thing gutted in the SCOTUS decision was PRIOR oversight but not new complaints. They are flooding the DOJ rapidly!
choicelady

7 days ago
hey glenn. finestkind. Lovely day, we get a PUBLIC holiday next tuesday week, Nov 2 for a Horse Race!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
I feel for you guys,it is too bad the right and left don`t work together.Pipe dream I guess
Beatlex

7 days ago
I read that the new word for ‘really stupid’ in scandanvia is ‘texas’. lol
Harleigh

7 days ago
PPO – what is your call on outcomes?
choicelady

7 days ago
Cummins certainly called Gowdy out big time!,
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Harleigh – I saw that! LOL!!!
choicelady

7 days ago
PPO – Cummins ripped him a new one indeed!
choicelady

7 days ago
cl, which outcomes, the elections or the hearings?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO – your elections.
choicelady

7 days ago
well then the texas teabggers really are gonna be pissed when they find out in a few months.
Harleigh

7 days ago
CL–Don’t you love republicans? Now their new darling is Ben Carson, and one of the reasons they love him is that he has no foreign affairs experience. I kid you not; that was on a list given on the Chris Matthews show tonight. Also, they love him because he has no government experience. Now, I may be old; but if memory serves me right; that “2 a.m. phone call” thingy was leveled against Hillary in the 2008 election, and the “community organizer” thingy against President Obama. Yet, 8 years later, those are the two things repubs want!
glenn

7 days ago
Harleigh – the TX TP can’t read. Not to worry. Won’t hurt their feelings since they won’t know.
choicelady

7 days ago
cl, have they called one already???? didn’t know that, but if they go now with Turnbull in the PM position, I think the Condservatives will keep power, dammit!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Evening all – I totally lost track of time. How y’all doin?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Harleigh–I don’t think the word is for “stupid”; I think it’s for “crazy”. Either way, it fits!
glenn

7 days ago
They werethe last of the baggers to find out what a bagger is! LOL
Harleigh

7 days ago
glenn – for the GOP whatever they hate about Dems they love about themselves.
choicelady

7 days ago
hi slm
Harleigh

7 days ago
Sorry PPO – thought you were talking about your elections. I’m lost here…
choicelady

7 days ago
HEY SLM – good to see you!
choicelady

7 days ago
SLM–doing well; how about you? I’m not taking anything away from Bernie; but Hillary sure as hell nailed that committee hearing, didn’t she?
glenn

7 days ago
Harleigh – someone asked me what teabagging was, and I was too embarrassed to answer.
choicelady

7 days ago
never mind, cl, we all get seniors moments, especially me!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
I happened to have a sick day the day of the hearing(seriously) And between naps and breaks for lunch,then supper,LOL The Republicans were at their most pathetic,now we know why Hillary demanded they be broadcast,she is one smart Lady! She made mincemeat out of them.
Beatlex

7 days ago
PPO – you’re too kind. I’m just losing track of nations other than this one. Too much stuff!
choicelady

7 days ago
CL–that’s funny. When the tea party first organized, and all my friends were laughing about “teabagging”, I had to ask them what it meant. I truly didn’t know.
glenn

7 days ago
Beatlex – how ARE you, by the way. I’m glad you got to see it all though, but not if it means you’re not OK.
choicelady

7 days ago
lol CL. the baggers are now saying it does not refer to the one on their knees but the one standing up!!! seriously.
Harleigh

7 days ago
I’ll be polite and say, since I watched all of it. Well she was herself. I still want to know why ambassadors wouldn’t have her email address. Never worked anywhere where the entire company didn’t have access to the upper echelon.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Beatlex–so did the hearing make you sicker?
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – and I still don’t WANT to know!
choicelady

7 days ago
Congrats B – Trudeau is starting out quite fine
sillylittleme

7 days ago
beatlex, have any new polls come out since the hearing, and what is the result?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Harleigh–see, now you’ve lost me again. There are two ways of “teabagging”?
glenn

7 days ago
SLM – she said she did not know if Stevens had it but did have her State office email address rather than her personal one.
choicelady

7 days ago
lol glenn
Harleigh

7 days ago
Choice – its still weird, and I wonder what the FBI is looking at…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM – the FBI is checking the security of the server. Not HER.
choicelady

7 days ago
Beatlex–I agree. I think Hillary outsmarted gowdy and his pals by making sure the hearing was open and televised. Showed them up for the fools they are.
glenn

7 days ago
cl, while they’re at it , can they also check the servers of the chiefs of the CIA and FBI??
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
the FBI was trying to find out if her server was hacked. no it wasn’t
Harleigh

7 days ago
glenn – it was a very wise move. She made them look fools, showed their immaturity, and bored people stiff all at the same time.
choicelady

7 days ago
Choice – they are looking at more than that. I am willing to wait and see what they say
sillylittleme

7 days ago
PPO – I don’t know what the warrant is, but since there were back and forth emails, it may be covered.
choicelady

7 days ago
Good Friday evening, kids! Have we decided what Bernie was doing all night at Hillary’s house in 2012 yet?
kesmarn

7 days ago
Hey Kes
sillylittleme

7 days ago
about the hearings, I think it’s time someone said, as they did with McCarthy, ‘Haven’t you done enough?”
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Hey, SLM! How’re you doing?
kesmarn

7 days ago
Awesome and how is Kes?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
hi kes! I have it on good authority HRC was with the gardeners son.
Harleigh

7 days ago
SLM – no, that’s their charge. There were five attempts to hack the personal server that failed. The government one WAS hacked. So they are double checking on security. That’s the directive. There was nothing criminal or even against rules about what she did, but the server is unique so being checked out.
choicelady

7 days ago
Glenn,I am having some problems getting the meds right for my IBS that I was recently dianosed with.The severity of the system can vary wildly,and it seems I am having some of the serious effects,I will get the meds right,part of it is diet too
Beatlex

7 days ago
Doing well. And Harleigh, that sound pretty exciting — especially for a woman of a certain age!
kesmarn

7 days ago
Harleigh – don’t be silly she has no sexual interest whatsoever, that’s why her hubby’s a philanderer
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Beatex I am sorry you have to go through that! Hope you get balanced.
choicelady

7 days ago
++Symtom++ oops
Beatlex

7 days ago
beat, sorry to hear that. My lady suffers from the same prob. Very restrictive in your life, isn’t it?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
B – hope you find balance
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM – that seems an observation without a source? Whyever would you remotely think that?
choicelady

7 days ago
Monica Lewinsky, Jennifer Flowers, need I go on? She has the face of a woman who hasn’t had an orgasm in so long she forgot what they felt like
sillylittleme

7 days ago
LOL slm
Harleigh

7 days ago
CL–still trying to figure out, as Cummins pointed out, why the CIA and DOD weren’t there at that hearing. Still don’t understand why the CIA is getting a “pass” on their responsibility in Benghazi. That consulate wasn’t only a consulate, or a “mission”; it was a CIA station, too. That was one of the reasons the locals were so upset.
glenn

7 days ago
OZ,it is hard fining the balance,when I get it right I feel fine
Beatlex

7 days ago
Harleigh – passing my bowl
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM, I think that might be MArtha Roby’s face. Talk about repressed!! “It’s NOT funneeeee!!”
kesmarn

7 days ago
SLM – That’s a really nasty and anti-woman thing to say! I’m shocked you’d do that!
choicelady

7 days ago
thx slm… tok tok
Harleigh

7 days ago
Glenn – and why would they have a safe room with no egress. The whole thing stinks
sillylittleme

7 days ago
KES!!!! Great to see you!
choicelady

7 days ago
Hey, c’lady! It’s been a long time!
kesmarn

7 days ago
Actually I think that women who don’t acknowledge their sexuality are anti-feminist
sillylittleme

7 days ago
C’mon, SMot, where are you?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Hey Kes–why Bernie was doing “socialist” thingies, dontcha know? In all seriousness, though, I’m very glad that Bernie is running; I think he’s keeping Hillary on her toes, and making her stick to progressive values and ideas.
glenn

7 days ago
that building was not on stete dept books and was unstaffed. weird
Harleigh

7 days ago
Pink – he probably fell asleep.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM – but you know nothing of her private life! None of us does.
choicelady

7 days ago
maybe it was a local crack house
Harleigh

7 days ago
I was thinking of you when there were photos published of 100 people harassing patients at a reproductive health clinic in Toledo. You know that story.
kesmarn

7 days ago
grabbing a gasper, BRB
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Beatlex–sorry to hear about your imbalance. Hope you get it right soon.
glenn

7 days ago
Harleigh – one of the people who died in Benghazi was a colleague of mine, so let’s not go over the top here. I have no clue why they were there other than it was not evil. That wasn’t what Glenn would do.
choicelady

7 days ago
Hill will have the same result as in ’08. I called Biden from the beginning and I was wrong on Trump, but I’ll take two out of three. You people have no idea what’s about to hit this world. Its called liberalism and it isn’t a bit corporatist.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn, I feel the same about Bernie. In fact, he’s my first choice.
kesmarn

7 days ago
kes – me you mean?
choicelady

7 days ago
I have no clue about why or what they were there for. neither does that stupid fuckin committee! lol
Harleigh

7 days ago
Yes, c’lady. Oops…guess I forgot to mention your name. Some real extremists coming to the fore here in Ohio now.
kesmarn

7 days ago
SLM – whoever is the nom, I will vote for him or her because the alternative is horrid.
choicelady

7 days ago
Same here. Whoever is the Dem nominee has my vote!
kesmarn

7 days ago
kes – where in OH? I worry about how fired up they are. Moving in on moderate to liberal states in force. Last gasp and a violent one.
choicelady

7 days ago
CL–I’ll second that!
glenn

7 days ago
vote dem. already signed up to vote by mail here.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Toledo, c’lady. It’s about to get real, as they say.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Ok Choice – I didn’t come here to fight, just want you Hill supporters to start getting let down easy. That’s all. Lower expectations so you won’t be crushed. The millenials won’t be aligning with Hill.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Okay, folks, I’m out of here. Early morn tomorrow to catch my flight. See y’all next week!
glenn

7 days ago
kes – I hope there is no violence.
choicelady

7 days ago
G’night, glenn. Safe travels!
kesmarn

7 days ago
Nite Glenn safe travels and have fun!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Very much hoping that too, CL.
kesmarn

7 days ago
SLM – the base is POC millennials who are not yet convinced of Bernie. So it’s up for grabs I think.
choicelady

7 days ago
night glenn!fly safe
Harleigh

7 days ago
glenn – safe journey and a wonderful weekend!
choicelady

7 days ago
Now that Webb is out – will he go rogue and run indie – and will it matter?
choicelady

7 days ago
Choice – ok you can think that, but if you aren’t out on main st and your getting your news from any of the 6 corporate stations (even local) you’re probably blind to the truth. And that’s how the corporate owned media want you to be.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Choice – I actually think the Rs may recruit him. Voice of reason and all.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM – what makes you assume I’m not on the street? it’s where I do everything. But it’s in POC communities mostly. Immigrant and Black and some Asian. People are not trusting him. Might. Not yet.
choicelady

7 days ago
only a tear away from the election… gary hart, dukakus, edwards, gore, kerry…. oh my
Harleigh

7 days ago
oops, year away lol
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh – much can change, yes indeed.
choicelady

7 days ago
I think Webb may give it a try, but money’s going to be a major problem. And I think he overestimates the number of people who are truly in the middle now. The nation is more polarized than he realizes.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Choice – what state?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
kes – I don’t see Webb as the voice of the white working man at all. I think he has a very narrow window between union and would-be union people and Trump/Tea Party types.
choicelady

7 days ago
CA and OH and PA and NY – I move around a lot.
choicelady

7 days ago
webb may as well go home, it’s all HRC and Bern for the nom unless something drastic occurs.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Exactly, CL. He doesn’t have a broad enough base to make it.
kesmarn

7 days ago
harleigh – you missed hillary in ’08, oh my indeed
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Harleigh – what about O’Malley?
choicelady

7 days ago
I actually like O’Malley, but I’m afraid this is just not going to be his year.
kesmarn

7 days ago
I switch to OBAMA )*!! still got my sticker too!. It was a shock.
Harleigh

7 days ago
kes – I agree.
choicelady

7 days ago
Choice – well if my twitter followers are any indication, that isn’t possible. We’ll see as the ballots get counted.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM – WHAT isn’t possible – lost the thread here.
choicelady

7 days ago
Kevin should take the money and run
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh – Kevin? Now I’m REALLY lost unless you mean McCarthy whom I slightly know and loathe big time.
choicelady

7 days ago
Choice – that POC in that many states are leery of him. If it helps, the original black lives matter group in Boston is all for Bernie.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM – We will see, and we will see who actually votes. Either way I know it has to be a Dem or we’re doomed.
choicelady

7 days ago
Nate Silver, the statistician is saying HIllary will be the nominee based on current mathematical projections. My own favorite mathematician projects a Hillary vs Trump scenario — although he’s a very ardent Bernie fan personally. But numbers and projections are always changing, so neither of them has etched those projections in granite.
kesmarn

7 days ago
sorry, I meant Martin omally, Democrats ▸ Hillary Clinton. Lawrence Lessig. Martin O’Malley. Bernie Sanders. never heard of lessig
Harleigh

7 days ago
Choice – it has to be the right candidate or we lose either way. Why can’t we follow in the footsteps of the UK, Canada and soon Australia. Why do we have to be the only ones to be left behind as the rest of the civilized world moves forward.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
c’lady, is Kevin McCarthy really as dumb as he seems?
kesmarn

7 days ago
kes – Nate is pretty good at presidential stuff, yes, but I’m thinking Trump is sinking. But in relation to CARSON who makes me utterly ill!
choicelady

7 days ago
Harleigh – Lessig is a Harvard Law School professor. He’s looking to reverse CU.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
kes – yes. He is just as dumb as he seems. Heard him at the Press Club just before he went to Congress, and he’s mind-bogglingly stupid.
choicelady

7 days ago
cl, carson’s shortcomings will be there for all to see pretty soon
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Carson strikes me as a genuinely crazy person. He’s not faking it the way Trump is. He’s the real deal.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Kes – they are all paid to say the crap that comes out of their mouths
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM – that is ALL he’s doing. I find him offensive.
choicelady

7 days ago
The Republicans on that panel are not stupid people,they just do and say stupid things.There ever dissapearing base is starting to get very restless,the R`s havn`t kept ONE promise from the 2014 election.They are finally waking up to Republican lies
Beatlex

7 days ago
Choice – in what way? offensive?

SLM – to run on ONE issue as if that was sufficient. It’s theatrical and insulting.
choicelady

Oh Carson is heavily medicated.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
I agree, c’lady. Either that or he’s on some meds that are not being managed well. And I’m serious about that!
kesmarn

ke – totally agree.

Hah! jinx, SLM!

Choice – well there are some who want to vote for someone specifically based on gender, to me that is more insulting. He’s one candidate, they are many voters.

SLM – I think you’re right!
choicelady

slm, just the right kind of nut to have the Release Codes, dontcha think?

Kes – we are of one mind
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM – I agree. Voting on any ONE issue is not paying attention.
choicelady

PPO, that’s a truly scary thought.

carson said slavery was a good thing so blacks could vist the tropical islands, come to murikkka and find jebus. now THAT is fuckin looney as shit.

Harleigh – yup. Looney.
choicelady

But if slavery was so good, Harleigh, how come Obamacare is comparable to it????
kesmarn

7 days ago
free stuff kes!! LOL
Harleigh

7 days ago
kes!!!! You have found the essential contradiction!!! You need to be in political spin doctoring!
choicelady

7 days ago
My second career!! Sounds great!
kesmarn

7 days ago
For creating high blood pressure, that is…
kesmarn

7 days ago
kes – well…there IS that…
choicelady

7 days ago
And I’ve gotten this far without it…
kesmarn

7 days ago
there is so much spin in the GOP that they’ve circled the wagons and are driving straight up thier own arses.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Obamacare will get you free meds!
Harleigh

7 days ago
kes – OK – keep it that way! Take up gardening instead?
choicelady

7 days ago
lol ppo
Harleigh

7 days ago
Carson should be all for Obamacare then!
kesmarn

7 days ago
PPO!!! That is TOO funny!
choicelady

7 days ago
kes grow reefer!
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh – then kes needs to come out to CO or, soon we hope, CA.
choicelady

7 days ago
I dunno… I have a knack for killing plants… Maybe pottery?
kesmarn

7 days ago
Rather than pot?
kesmarn

carson said obamacare is bad, he just can’t remember why.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh, at last Australia is looking to decriminalise medical pot.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
kes – that’s fine. Just don’t give it as presents right off…
choicelady

7 days ago
Harleigh – Pots, not pot.
choicelady

7 days ago
PPO – seriously? With YOUR leaders? I thought they were death on deciminalizing.
choicelady

Ok so did no one see today that Obama wants to end the drug war and start a war on addiction, also Warren and Sanders introduced a bill to end Glass-Steagall.

cl… you do know all repubs and ideas are from cracked pot right? LMAO
Harleigh

Ohio has not one but TWO marijuana issues on the Nov. ballot.
kesmarn

PPO – ahhhh. Makes sense.
choicelady

7 days ago
cracked pots
Harleigh

7 days ago
kes – I heard that from friends in Y’town.
choicelady

7 days ago
Pot will be decriminalized by Xmas
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Harleigh – that could be taken any number of ways!
choicelady

7 days ago
True story. And one directly contradicts the other.
kesmarn

7 days ago
slm, profits will be way down in Prisonland
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Marijuana legalization would be a huge gubmint problem! First think about all the hundreds of thousands of drug related police and their corrupt activities at the local, state and federal levels that would be out of work. Then all the MJ only prisoners could be released and the ensuing consolidation would put thousands of prison workers onto unemployment. Then the courts would be unclogged and actually have to work again. Is this what we really want fer Murikkka just so everybody can smoke a harmless/beneficial substance that would create millions of jobs in dozens of new industries generating billions in revenues? I think not… way to smart for duhmurikkka.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Hey folks!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
PPO – we are trying to legalize it in CA so that yes, there is NO justification for more prisons.
choicelady

Ok I’m going to NYC tomorrow for the anti-police rally. Everyone have a great week

Hey KT!

Safe travels, SLM!

hi KT!

SLM – have a good rally and stay safe!

be careful, SLM, don’t give ’em any excuse
pinkpantheroz

later slm, duck the bullets!

Hey Homie. Yeah, the Tralfamadorians have great public transportation!
KillgoreTrout

Hey Harleigh!
KillgoreTrout

They must have no Republicans there then..
kesmarn

7 days ago
PPO I probably will get busted for sitting in City Hall here in CA in Dec. I figured I’d just GO in cuff bands and save the cops the trouble.
choicelady

7 days ago
cl, LOL!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
They were outlawed several millenia ago.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
lol
Harleigh

7 days ago
Wise Tralfamadorians.
kesmarn

7 days ago
The best!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
c’lady, what will the issue be in Dec. for the sit in?
kesmarn

7 days ago
kes – the abuses of homeless people. I currently have five living in the backyard. But we have stood up for them, have been firm but fair with the cops – they don’t hassle me. Word on the street is not to mess with choicelady. But sit ins at City Hall? Whole ‘nother thing. Figured I’d be compliant and polite so they STILL don’t resent me.
choicelady

7 days ago
That is awesome! You’re walking a fine line there, but what a good thing you’re doing!
kesmarn

7 days ago
this has to be short and sweet, I’m afraid. Gotta go get dinner for tonight. Have a good weekend, everyone. Take care all you protesters and stay safe.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
How are the neighbors with the “campers” in the back yard?
kesmarn

7 days ago
G’night, PPO! Have a great weekend!
kesmarn

7 days ago
CL, that’s wonderful. They must be really grateful for you providing a safe place to sleep nights. That’s one of the biggest problems with being homeless.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
kes – the five are all in line for housing, but in the meantime they HAVE to avoid the sweeps. So four are in the garage in two tents, and one outside for the time being with his adorable cat. We keep the cat in a huge cage at night and on a leash by day for his safety. He does GREAT and actually does not mind since he was a little kitten when it started. So I guess I actually have six creatures, five human and one feline.
choicelady

7 days ago
KT – they all say it’s the first time they’ve slept in years.
choicelady

7 days ago
I bet! I’ve been there.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
They are SO fortunate to have you in their lives.
kesmarn

7 days ago
KT – yes, I remember you have. Glad you’re not anymore!
choicelady

7 days ago
CL, you are practicing genuine spirituality. The real thing.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
kes – they are all nice people. Two couples, one single gay guy. And a neutered cat. Interesting community.
choicelady

7 days ago
I don’t mean to pry but are you letting them use shower facilities and such? Feeding them? (Feel free NOT to answer.) Not being nosy, but just wondering about the logistics of this.
kesmarn

7 days ago
KT – during the Great Depression my grandmother did the same. She fed people and gave them shelter. One man lived for several years as the handyman with a cot in the basement. Just following tradition.
choicelady

7 days ago
It’s a great tradition.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
My grandmother fed people during the Depression too. Even when she didn’t have much herself.
kesmarn

7 days ago
The fundies could learn a thing or two from your grandmothers.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
kes – I’m lucky – there is a bathroom a block up open 24/7 and shower facilities about half a mile from here they use weekly. I do some laundry based on who has money, who doesn’t. They all have food stamps and a little money.
choicelady

7 days ago
Homie, my grandmother was so gullible, she didn’t even make the “hoboes” (as they were called) WORK for their food. How naive is that!?
kesmarn

7 days ago
nite ppo
Harleigh

7 days ago
kes – during the Depression, tramps and hobos as they were called, would draw the sign of a cat on houses. It means ‘kind hearted women here’. There was one on my grandparents’ home. I don’t see that, but word of mouth is there is always a couple of sandwiches to be found and fruit. I’m known as the neighborhood fruit pusher.
choicelady

7 days ago
Was it really naivte, homie? Nah!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Oh I missed PPO leaving! So sorry!
choicelady

7 days ago
That sounds great, c’lady. They have the feeling that they’re doing what they can, and you’re also doing what you can. Which is all we can do, no?
kesmarn

7 days ago
Homie, only naivete to the GOP! To human beings, it was/is human decency.
kesmarn

7 days ago
kes – they help me a lot. Odd jobs, sweeping, whatever they can. I call it my ‘condo in the back’.
choicelady

7 days ago
Sure was/is.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
The GOP can suck eggs. Life is terribly hard when your income is low and rents are “too damned high”! NO ONE works harder than the homeless.
choicelady

7 days ago
I have to say though, one must be cautious. Not all homeless people are decent.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Well, that blows the Paul Ryan concept of the poor, doesn’t it? That they don’t want to do any odd jobs?
kesmarn

7 days ago
KT – I know, and I live in the part of the city where the nice ones go to get away from the dangerous ones. We’re very working class but quiet. And the good guys protect me from the bad guys. And a few druggie women.
choicelady

7 days ago
Carson says they are mostly lazy criminals.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh – gosh. I thought that was the GOP?
choicelady

7 days ago
That’s good CL.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT, the hospital where I worked served (in part) a very poor area and that was the story there. There were people who were the salt of the earth, but there were some who were predatory — there’s no other word for it.
kesmarn

7 days ago
kes – I have never met a street person worse than some white educated professionals for ‘predatory’.
choicelady

7 days ago
That’s exactly the right word. Must be republicans!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
cl crazy carson is the epiome of the gopbaggers.
Harleigh

7 days ago
THAT is the truth, c’lady! Some of the wealthy patients were intolerable.
kesmarn

7 days ago
And the Wall Street predators can inflict damage on a so much more massive scale.
kesmarn

7 days ago
kes – there IS one guy universally disliked that I have barked at a lot. I insist that “Yo Mama” is an inappropriate greeting and that showing up drugged is NOT on. He gets help when he acts like a human being – which means not cussing out other homeless people. He’s scared of me. I can cut him off the peanut butter.
choicelady

7 days ago
I would love to see a few 1%ers homeless.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
c’lady, when you control the peanut butter, you have the POWER.
kesmarn

7 days ago
KT – it is one reason why the movie ‘Trading Places’ so appeals.
choicelady

7 days ago
kes – oh, yeahhhhhh.
choicelady

7 days ago
well I’m noddin out floks see ya next week.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Good point CL. They couldn’t handle it.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
kes – and I have cup of soup in the winter. I rule with an iron crock pot.
choicelady

7 days ago
folks…. lol
Harleigh

7 days ago
First on my list, Homie, would be that Martin Shkreli who raised the price of the AIDS med 5000$
kesmarn

7 days ago
Good night HArleigh – hope you get nothing of the hurricane!
choicelady

7 days ago
OOps…5000%

CL, you despot, you!

G’night, Harleigh!

Night Harleigh. Take a toke for me.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
kes – there is a compounding pharmecy that is now doing Skrell’s meds for $1 per pill. Skrell’s income just got a major hit!
choicelady

7 days ago
KT and kes – yup. Don’t mess with the choicelady. She’ll cut off your hot soup!
choicelady

7 days ago
Couldn’t have happened to a bigger bastard, c’lady. Homelessness is too good for that guy.
kesmarn

7 days ago
I saw that CL. I laughed out loud. That scumbag deserves to be run out of business.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
kes – I LOVE that the compounding pharmacy is undermining him!
choicelady

7 days ago
Sometimes there actually is justice in the universe.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Talk about predatory.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
kes – I think there always is, it just is sometimes hard to find. But when you do…golden!
choicelady

7 days ago
KT – that man is disgusting, yes, so this is wonderful because it’s unassailable – it’s “private enterprise” that he cannot squawk about!
choicelady

7 days ago
Now — if we can just get some karma for the guy who shot Cecil the lion…
kesmarn

7 days ago
kes – oh, indeed. That still makes me sick to my stomach.
choicelady

7 days ago
And then for Trey Gowdy…
kesmarn

7 days ago
Capitalsm can be a bitch sometimes…hahahaha!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Not to mention Dick Cheney…
kesmarn

7 days ago
Dubya…
kesmarn

7 days ago
kes – he has to live with himself and all of yesterday’s photos of his oil slick face. Punishment has started!
choicelady

7 days ago
Everytime I see Gowdy’s picture, I just want to slap him. Repeatedly.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
kes – well Cheney and W cannot leave the nation. They can be arrested in other nations and taken to the ICC.
choicelady

7 days ago
And that Martha Roby woman! Hahaha…her karma was almost instant. Mocking laughter.
kesmarn

7 days ago
KT – yup. My sentiments exactly.
choicelady

7 days ago
kes – LOL indeed!
choicelady

7 days ago
Gowdy really looks reptilian
kesmarn

7 days ago
kes -someone likened him to Malfoy from Sltherin, but I think he’s worse.
choicelady

7 days ago
I think when he was born, the doctor went a little too heavy on the forceps.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – he DOES always look as if his face got caught in an elevator door. I think you just figured out why.
choicelady

7 days ago
I’m one of the few people who haven’t seen the movies, but I definitely get the Malfoy picture.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Either that, or his parents were brother and sister.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
kes – the books are better, but the films were beautifully cast.
choicelady

7 days ago
And then there’s the banjo player from “Deliverance”..
kesmarn

7 days ago
KT – well he IS from TN.,,
choicelady

7 days ago
kes – yup. He kind of fits all these categories.
choicelady

7 days ago
kes, I had the same thought when I first saw him.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
They really do look like they could be related (on some way that we don’t want to think too hard about).
kesmarn

7 days ago
People can say what they will about Hillary, but she just made Gowdy Doody.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Then there was the brillo-headed woman from IN. Brooks? Hillary is still scraping her off of her shoe.
kesmarn

7 days ago
LOL!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – she did brilliantly. There’s nothing left to ask. Brillo head was so off base.
choicelady

7 days ago
She was so annoying. Especially (I’m so superficial) her accent. (“Pie-yulls” of “pay-per”)
kesmarn

7 days ago
I heard that Hillary recieved a ton of donations, just one hour after the hearing ended. Dumb ass teabillies.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
kes – did they intentionally pick GOP members with personal idiosyncracies that capture more attention that what was said?
choicelady

7 days ago
KT – over $3million, yes.
choicelady

7 days ago
They couldn’t have done more for Hillary if Sid Blumenthal had paid them.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Wow, that is a ton.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
kes – someone called it an 11-hour HRC for President ad.
choicelady

7 days ago
So true homie.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
That sounds about right, cl.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
c’lady, I do believe they chose irritating people deliberately. Their goal was to make her lose her temper.
kesmarn

7 days ago
kes – they wanted another ‘what difference does it make’ sound bite. I heard what she said: “what difference does it make what we said then”. But this time she gave them NOTHING.
choicelady

7 days ago
What they didn’t consider, is that Hillary eats scandals for breakfast. They only make her stronger!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Oh wow… almost midnight here. I guess I’d better sign off, kids. It was great to “see” you again. Have a great weekend!
kesmarn

7 days ago
KT – since they have been after her since January 1993, yeah. She’s already baptized by fire.
choicelady

7 days ago
Hard as steel, cl.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Good night dear kes – I am SO glad to see you after these many months. Let’s not let it go so long? Be well!
choicelady

7 days ago
(Wish I could Fed Ex some soup to your colony, c’lady!
kesmarn

7 days ago
kes – I will make some with your name on it!
choicelady

7 days ago
Night Homie. I too am going to sign off. Night cl. You are a real mensch!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
That sounds great!
kesmarn

7 days ago
KT – thank you! I try. Good night to you both. Beatlex – what say you? Shall we stay or go?
choicelady

7 days ago
Beatlex – I’ll hang in for another 5 minutes, but then I’ll close ‘er down. Good talk and congrats on Trudeau!
choicelady

7 days ago
Well good talk, lots of laughs as always. Have a great weekend everyone. See you next week!
