Vox Populi, our weekly live chat about the week’s events begins tonight at 7:00pm PST…which is when we’ll be back from breaking up the Trump rally in Chicago!

Trump wishes he could have run earlier in two thousand and hate.
AdLib 7 days ago
He would have loved to be in Chicago years ago with the police bully boys!
pinkpantheroz

Yep, he’s such a tough guy…in his imagination. I bet Trump would drop like a ton of bricks if a protester punched him in the jaw.
AdLib 7 days ago
And though I literally fantasize of punching Trump in the face, I don’t ever want to see anyone be violent towards him or his supporters because it lets them off the hook for supporting violence.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey Beatlex!
AdLib 7 days ago
Long time no see guys! What the Fk is going on with your country?
Beatlex

Trump hate on display and very American protesters not letting the hate go unconfronted.
AdLib 7 days ago
Live by hate, die by hate. Trump is turning indie voters against him in a big way.
AdLib 7 days ago
This is different to anything we have seen Ad.The death of a party

True Beatlex, Trump is strangling the GOP before our very eyes. It’s ugly but it has to happen.

Beatlex – Yep, it is weird to be going through this madness in what should be an enlightened day and age but the cavemen in the GOP will fight progress with all they’ve got.
AdLib 7 days ago
Beatlex–You are correct! This is the strangest shit I’ve ever seen! And, I’ve seen a few elections in my day! Trump is turning my country into a cesspool of hate. But, Ad keeps convincing me that trump supporters are not the majority of my fellow countrymen (and women), so I hold out hope for the GE.

Doing well glenn! And you? Soccer game tomorrow?
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey Planet folks!

What happened with this protest? I was out and blissfully unaware…
Beatlex

Ad–Doing well, too. No soccer game tomorrow. My daughter and granddaughter are in FL for the weekend helping my oldest stepgranddaughter (now there’s a long word) choose her wedding dress. She got engaged over Christmas; in fact her boyfriend proposed to her on Christmas morning with all of us as “witnesses” and it was quite joyful. The wedding will be in December, so we’ll all be in Florida in December for the glorious weather!

Hey KT! How have you been?
Beatlex

Hey B! I guess there was a lot of tension between Trump supporters and anti-Trump folks. S
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–how goes it?
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – A majority of America elected and re-elected Obama. Those are not Fuhrer Trump supporters. Trump’s ceiling is dropping lower and lower in a GE. Women strongly dislike him and indie voters are disgusted by this hate. The majority wants a President to bring the country together and Trump is poisoned terminally on this critical issue.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey KT!
AdLib 7 days ago
I’ve been great B! And you?
KillgoreTrout

Hey glenn and Ad! Nice to have some company this evening!
KillgoreTrout

Hanging in KT,some health issues still
Beatlex

i hope you’re feeling better.
KillgoreTrout

Wow, what happened in “Nuremburg,” today?
KillgoreTrout

Ad–Agree with your post; except it’s not Trump’s ceiling that is dropping; it’s the floor below him! May he and his supporters rot in hell! What vicious, nasty people.

KillgoreTrout

KT – Protesters by the thousands attended the Trump rally at the U of Chicago and it was so tense in there, Trump cancelled his appearance then conflicts broke out before the hall was cleared.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT–haven’t checked lately, but I did see headlines that trump had to cancel a rally because of all the protests.
glenn

Hey glenn! So glad to see ya.

Really OZ! What happened with her “people”?
Beatlex

7 days ago
Sorry?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
this was bound to happen. When I heard the news, I wasn’t at all surprised.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – Well put! Indeed, the Trump is going lower and lower and that is bringing down his possible support with him. He will be crushed in a GE and I am sure hoping he locks up the Repub nom next week and dooms them to oblivion for the foreseeable future.
AdLib 7 days ago
I’m surprized that things weren’t worse.

Is Nancy Reagan a good memory? Just Say No!
KillgoreTrout

KT – The protesters aren’t violent so that undermines the possibility for violence, when only one side is violent.
AdLib 7 days ago
Damn Ad! I ‘m a bit dizzy after that!
KillgoreTrout

No worries, Beat!
pinkpantheroz

KT,”just say know” was,and is,fucking lame.It meant shit

Exactly B! Talk about binary thinking!
KillgoreTrout

Ad–and I hope repubs are doomed in Congress too, with this latest SCOTUS nonsense. I can’t believe these selfish, egotistical (sp) bastards! As many people have said, if President Obama doesn’t get his nominee voted on; those repubs who are up for election in November should not be allowed to vote for anything until Nov. After all, the people should be able to choose, right?
glenn

7 days ago
KT – Just say “agreed”! Nancy was an awful first lady and her husband was homophobic, a criminal (via Iran Contra) and deadly to the poor, mentally ill and homeless. I will never support the BS happy talk about people who did terrible things in goovernment just because they died.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad, I would have loved to see a total Donnybrook, with the protesters overwhelming the security and the rednecks. Oh, that’s what happened, so Drumpf chickened out..

Same here, Ad! It’s bullshit.

KillgoreTrout

glenn – Rachel made the case yesterday that a nom who gets crushed doesn’t doom the congressional success of a party but I would bet heavily on the Dems crushing Trump and taking back the Senate. If they win big enough, who knows, maybe the House coould be taken back too!

Ooooh! Priceless, KT!!

Kt, yes, the Reagan influences still today.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
DRUMF!! The Chump! Be afraid
Beatlex

7 days ago
PPO – As I mentioned above, I’d rather have Trump and his supporters seen as the violent ones. That will doom Trump in a GE, don’t want him having an ad showing Progressives being violent and justifying his hatred.
AdLib 7 days ago
Let’s Make Donald Drumpf Again!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – Great point. It is scary to think we had a Pres in office with Alzheimer’s and his wife was pulling the strings. How disgusting.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad, I totally agree. All is needed is for the protesters show up and yell long enough to have Drumpf’s toadies take a swing. But he was too cowardly to leave DrumpfOne!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Ad–perhaps if we had a decent DNC chairperson, the Dems could take back not only the Senate, but some State Senates and Houses. All the Dems have to do is point to states like MI, OH, and KS to show what total republican “governing” does to a state!
glenn

7 days ago
Kind of like Jed Bartlett and his MS! Only much worse!

AdLib 7 days ago
B, I’m going to vote Blue, no matter who!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Nail on the head OZ! But you ain’t ‘Mercan!
Beatlex

7 days ago
good summation P! I feel the same way.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Beatlex–right now, I’m leaning toward Bernie because he is pulling the party to the left–finally! But I truly believe Hillary will be the nom, and I’ll vote for her over any republican!
glenn

7 days ago
KT PLEASE pass that on to the Dems who won’t vote at all unless bernie’s the nominee! Ultra scary!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Back atcha Beat!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
They are scary! This is no time for complacency or bruised consciences!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – You really nailed it! With DWS out and someone competent and Progressive in charge of the DNC, Dems woould sweep nationally this year. Meanwhile, she has dismantled the 50 State Strategy that Howard Dean built and brought in a Dem Congress and President. She is not on our side.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–I agree that the trump protesters MUST be nonviolent. They need to channel MLK to keep it nonviolent on the protesters side, so the difference can be shown. Any time we are reduced to violence; it makes us no better than the trump supporters, IMO.
glenn

7 days ago
DWS must go! She is a bonafide DINO!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Adlib,She is more on your side than not…no?
Beatlex

7 days ago
glenn, they have been non-violent, but when your protest is directed against a violent faction, shit is going to go down!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Oh, Lord! are we going to fight inside the DNC and screw any cohesion up? Please no. Concentrate on beating the GOP!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Don’t ever count Bernie out, I think he can do it. But if Hillary wins, I’ll be voting her in!
AdLib 7 days ago
Beatlex–hard to tell whose side DWS is on. She has made some horrible decisions that I believe have hurt the party.
glenn

7 days ago
BRB
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Ad–do you think Bernie’s momentum from MI will hold up?
glenn

7 days ago
Ad, if H gets the nom, she’ll be the only person able to stop the GOPers from dismantling everything good that Obama worked so hard for. People need to stop demonizing her.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Beatlex–a little change of subject, but it was lovely seeing your new PM and his lovely wife in the WH. Didn’t realize it had been so long since we have hosted a Canadian PM. How is your country accepting him?
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – Exactly, the Trump protesters must be willing to turn the other cheek and let the video pile up of his skinhead-like supporters showing their hate for America and Americans. The big picture is winning in Nov, winning a fistfight tomorrow is meaningless and counter-productive.
AdLib 7 days ago
Really KT. I personally don’t think America is ready for a socialist.I just don’t
Beatlex

7 days ago
Beatlex – I don’t think so, DWS is on her own side and that of corporate America. She is for the banks and against most of what Hillary, Bernie and Warren stand for. She is not an ally.
AdLib 7 days ago
not sure that the words “fist fight,” is a good choice, at this time!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Adlib: What is the alternative? Do you really think Bernie has a chance?
Beatlex

7 days ago
KT–I understand what you’re saying, but I’m not sure that fighting violence with violence is the answer. I sure would like to see that paradigm shift since we are now in the 21st century and for the first 20, that is what we have done. Isn’t it time for something new?
glenn

7 days ago
B, there is more than one variety of socialism. Democratic socialism is a very good thing, and necessary. America has always been a mix of capitalism and socialism.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Sure KT,but not everyone knows the difference
Beatlex

7 days ago
Well, that’s Bernie’s big job as a candidate!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – The Dem primary has been so rigged, it’s just not easy to characterize the true support for Bernie but it is deep and wide. Consider that Hillary has only really won in deep red Republican states that won’t be in play in a GE, Bernie is winning in blue and purple states. Plainly, he is showing to be more popular in the states that matter in general. If Hillary wins FL as predicted, that would be meaningful as it is the first purple state she could win. But that’s why I say never count Bernie out, this primary was front loaded with ultra-conservative Southern states, of course Hillary would win those over Bernie. But as the race turns West and towards more moderate and liberal states? Bernie could stage a big comeback.
AdLib 7 days ago
glenn, I’m not sure I follow you!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–You mean doing something “christian” like turning the other cheek? I’m not there at the rallies, and I cannot imagine what it must be like to be sucker-punched and then thrown to the ground, but I do believe that non-violence is the best answer. That, and the g-d “liberal press” quite giving trump attention. I see where CBS wouldn’t let him “phone it in” the other day and that now other press people are saying that trump shouldn’t be allowed to “phone it in” anywhere. Finally!
glenn

7 days ago
Great point glenn! I too am sick of all the free campaign ads that the media willingly give to Trump. It’s a real dog and pony show!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Glenn,and giving his half hour “infomercials” disguised as press conferences wall to wall coverage
Beatlex

7 days ago
KT – Though I do agree people shouldn’t demonize either Hillary or Bernie, criticism of their positions or performances shouldn’t be quashed because it compromises the principles that Progressives value, staying true to principles and calling out when they disagree with something. I attack Repubs for being lockstep oon Repub noms, never would do the same with Dems. That said, Hillary and Bernie are booth thoughtful and mature people and there is no comparison with the slime running in the GOP.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT—just answering your post saying, “when a protest is directed against a violent faction, shit is going to go down.” I would just hate to see the protesters become violent as well. I hate to see them hurt; but, as Ad says, if they literally fight back, it only gives the trumpets more ammo, so to speak.
glenn

7 days ago
oops-not “quite” giving attention, but “quit”.
glenn

7 days ago
Exactly Ad. Hillary and Bernie are the only two mature adults in the entire race. I would also use the adjective, “wizened.”
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Yes glenn. The protester who was assaulted the night before at The Trump rally by that hick, he didn’t swing back. Saw him interviewed, he was a regular guy who took the attack and then was tackled by cops. He became better than all oof them and Trump due to that.
AdLib 7 days ago
Beatlex–OMG–I didn’t watch his infomercial, but from what I’ve read, every single one of those business he touted that night are no longer in business!
glenn

7 days ago
Ad–and I loved his last reponse, “Bless their little hearts” which is Southern for “fuck you!”
glenn

7 days ago
Well, when one is being attacked, personally, there is no choice but to fight back. That is simply a built in survival mechanism. It’s either fight or flight in viloent confrontations.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn,that’s right.He lies constantly,but it is OK with his idiot supporters,The “Poorly educated” he claims to love…LOL,Fools
Beatlex

7 days ago
I know this from more than a few personal experiences.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–I agree, but trump keeps insisting that the protesters are “swinging wildly” so he has “cover” for roughing them up. And the press needs to start doing its job; and instead of filiming trump start filming the audiences, especially the protesters who are being “escorted” out.
glenn

7 days ago
You saw that the head of CBS said something like, “Trump may be bad for the country but he’s great for ratings.” That is the perverse sensibility of the MSM. They don’t care if they promoted the antichrist to destroy all of humanity…if it meant satisfying their short term greed. As some have mentioned here, the MSM, in light of Trump’s gooons attacking and imprisoning journalists, should boycott his speeches and force him to buy ad time if he wants attention. That would destroy the egotistical Trump overnight!
AdLib 7 days ago
I agree glenn!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
*****stars Adlib!
Beatlex

7 days ago
KT – Well…Gandhi and MLK would disagree. When your opponent is a powerful bully, the best way to weaken them is to not return their hatred. What is Trump if he is only the leader of mindless hatred? The nation wants someone to bring us together, letting him brand himself as a divisive, bigoted hater kills his chances in Nov.
AdLib 7 days ago
Murdoch et al. must be rubbing their hands in glee. Imagine all the airtime they’d give Drumpf if he actually got the nom?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
If you remember Ad, Ghandi and MLK were gunned down.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–It must be difficult to not fight back; but perhaps the protesters can take “lessons” from the civil rights protesters of the 60’s and just start dropping and curling into a fetal ball. If they are not fighting back, perhaps the security guards cannot claim “innocence” in not protecting the protesters. Let the stupid media film a few of those and watch the shit fly then!

glenn – It’s hard for the press to cover the protesters because Trump has them imprisoned in a media pen. Remember what happened to the one journalist who tried to step out of the pen at a rally to cover the ejection of a protester? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6k8WJXKhMyE

AdLib 7 days ago
ah, Nuremburg is so nice, this time of year!
KillgoreTrout

KT – But the missions that Gandhi and MLK stoood for through non-violence succeeded.

I wonder what would happen, Ad, if all the media rebelled against being penned in and boycotted Trump altogether?

My point is, that this is a violent world, and people must not be kow towed. I’m all for peace, above nearly all else. But at some point, reality sets in. I don’t think Ghandi’s or MLK’s dreams took hold.

He is a fringe candidate who has been inflated by the MSM for their profits. In a GE, he will implode.

Hey Homie!. It makes me sick. The reason for that line of crap is that America’s national economy is very dependent on production for war. I’t the old warning the Ike gave us about the MIC. Almost every state in our country has military production facilities that provide a lot of jobs to Americans. It’s really shameful, in my opinion!

I believe it was written by a member of the press and it points out all of President Obama’s best traits–his calmness, his positive demeanor in the face of the constant, unfounded criticism and obstructionism by repubs and many other of President Obama’s finer character traits. I’ll try to find the link; it’s worth watching.

Murph, there is always room for improvement in any institution, but the VA does not get any credit for the wonderful improvements they’ve made throught the last three decades. As a vet, the VA has never failed me. Is that to say it hasn’t failed others? No. But it’s a large institution that has to deal with unimaginable problems.

Europe is run under democratic socialism, they’re capitalist countries and not so different from the US except they provide college and health care for their residents and make the super wealthy pay more taxes. Not a massive difference or hill to climb but Repubs will try to say he wants us to become the USSR.
