AdLib On March - 25 - 2016
Vox Populi, our weekly live chat on the week’s events begins tonight at 7:00pm. Hope to see you then!
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey Ad, what’s up?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hey KT! Just writing a Trump article for the National Enquirer. You?
AdLib 7 days ago
I’m doing great. Are you really doing that?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Just joking! But if I wasn’t, it woould state as a fact that Trump has Alzheimer’s, molested zoo animals and kicks newborn babies down stairs.
AdLib 7 days ago
And is the secret love child of ET and Mary Poppins?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
You don’t need any facts anymore!
AdLib 7 days ago
And a pumpkin.
AdLib 7 days ago
Man, that really seems to be the case, doesn’t it.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Oh yeah, got to get that orange tint from somewhere. Maybe the child of Boehner and Ayn Rand!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
This story in the NE is an intentional smear by the publisher who is a friend of Trump’s. That’s how things work in Trump’s America. And his supporters claim “he tells it like it is”?
AdLib 7 days ago
And an orange spider, hence the weave.
AdLib 7 days ago
I just can’t see Cruz getting any other woman to sleep with him. I’m not sure how he even found a wife. The guy is repugnant, in every way.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Good point. He sure ain’t a Don Juan, kinda funny that anyone would believe that. Unless they meant he was having affairs with rodents or reptiles.
AdLib 7 days ago
Now that seems more plausible!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Oops! Be right back!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Or maybe he’s having an affair with Black Plague?
AdLib 7 days ago
Ok.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey glenn!
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey Ad–Have to agree with KT. As a woman, cruz is one of the most repellent men I’ve ever seen! Of course, IMO, trump runs a close second to being the last man I’d want near me!
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – The GOP is in the midst of a Battle of the Sleazeballs, depending on the day, it’s hard to say which is sleazier.
AdLib 7 days ago
It’s actually very entertaining to see Repubs hacking away at each oother. We know the GE will be woorse but I’m hoping the sleaze sticks to them after the primary so in the GE, their attacks just make them look worse.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–true dat! I’ve heard every word spoken by the two sleazeballs, but can’t find much info on Bernie, or even Hillary, for that matter. Did see that Hillary was on Kimmel last night and he “mansplained” to her. It was pretty funny! But, Bernie? Is he taking a break? Is he giving speeches? Is he still alive? Who knows? But, as I say, I know what the two sleazeballs have to say about each other’s wives! Jesus H. Christ!
glenn

7 days ago
I didn’t see that bit from Kimmel but another part of it. Bernie’s rally in Seattle tonight is being promoted on MSNBC right now and his cool incident with a bird is trending on Twitter but no, during the day all you heard about is the sexist battle between Trump and Cruz.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ah, back now. Hey glenn, what’s shakin?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
So you missed the Kimmel bit; I missed Bernie’s incident with the bird. What was it?
glenn

7 days ago
Here’s the bird video from Portland today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jc2TVLoxsDA

AdLib 7 days ago
My daughter was at that rally!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – How cool!!!
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey KT–not much shakin’ here; too many parts start wobblin’ when I do that!
glenn

7 days ago
Was that her bird?
AdLib 7 days ago
Ha! That’s funny glenn!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
So we have one party where a candidate is supported by a bird and the other party that is flipping the bird to the country.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–so the Jewish guy makes the bird come alive on Good Friday! Now that’s symbolism!
glenn

7 days ago
KT–Did your daughter enjoy the rally?
glenn

7 days ago
Avian politics! That bird is a commie!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–Maybe a protester. After all, the bird did interrupt Bernie’s speech!
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – No kidding! But lost on the Repub “Christians” ike Cruz.
AdLib 7 days ago
I haven’t spoken to her since she went. We’re going to talk about it tomorrow! Portland is very big on Bernie!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hey Kes!
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–there a lot of things lost on the republicans!
glenn

7 days ago
KT – Yep, I think Bernie will clean up in OR.
AdLib 7 days ago
#BlackbirdLivesMatter? Shame on me! All in fun!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–Hope Bernie wins more states.
glenn

7 days ago
KT –
AdLib 7 days ago
KT–good one, but shouldn’t it be all #AllBirdsMatter? /s/
glenn

7 days ago
Bernie has a number of probable wins coming up in OR, WA and elsewhere.
AdLib 7 days ago
No doubt Ad. It’s not just Portland either.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hey Murph!
AdLib 7 days ago
glenn that’s just to silence the Blackbirds!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–you know, we keep hearing about the repubs’ contested convention. Do you think the Dem convention will be a mess, too?
glenn

7 days ago
“sup Murph?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–Those damn blackbirds just won’t be silenced any more. Don’t they know that the lighter colored birds are better?
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – No, I think that whoever has the most elected delegates after the primaries will get the Dem nom. The Superdelegates can’t overrule the will of the voters or Dems will be in the same destructive situation as the GOP.
AdLib 7 days ago
Did anybody see where two young women were arrested at a Sanders rally for going topless? I think it was some group called Free The Nipple, or something like that. Two funny!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
So they think, glenn, so they think! I think the GOP bird would be a vulture!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–so, I’m a little confused. If the super delegates can’t over rule the will of the voters, they will go with whoever won their state? So, you’re saying that super delegates won’t vote on their own?
glenn

7 days ago
Good Good Friday, Planetary Peeps! I see we have already covered the Birdie Sanders Sign From the Universe in Portland. Loved that!
kesmarn

7 days ago
HELLO ALL….I am just dropping by. We will see how it goes. We had a very mild winter and now we are paying the price. Pollen, fungi, mold….not killed off and back with avengeance….sinuses, head and throat are suffereing….so I may beh here for just abit.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
KT–great pun! Two funny!
glenn

7 days ago
Hey Kes–how are you doing tonight?
glenn

7 days ago
Hey, Murph! I’m just here for a few minutes too.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Sorry to hear that Murph!
AdLib 7 days ago
Glenn and KT..double entendre!
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Hey Murph! how’s it going!
glenn

7 days ago
Hey Homie!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hey, glenn! Son just headed back to Madison after a spring break visit. I miss him already!
kesmarn

7 days ago
Hey, Homie! How’s everything?
kesmarn

7 days ago
I’m Baaaack!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Hey, PPO! How was the surgery?
kesmarn

7 days ago
Working the Duckworth campaign….Kirk is worried…so worried that he plans to meet with the Obama Scotus pick and he wants hearings…
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Doing great kes. I hope the same for you!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph–my granddaughter is suffering from the pollen here, too. Poor thing has a red nose from blowing it so often! We had rain yesterday, so some relief, but sunny today.
glenn

7 days ago
Hi all, the surgery went sort of OK. Bigger zip this time on the other leg and slower to heal, but not too bad just now.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Doing OK here. Getting ready for Easter with the 93 year old Dad and the family.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Glenn…sunny, a bit cool and perfect weather for airborn misery.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Murph–even better–double entendre. You guys are very clever!
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – Just saying that the Superdelegates are a threat to the Dem Pasrty if they were too, for example, push Hillary ahead f Bernie if he was ahead on elected delegates. They can but shouldn’t mess with the will of the people.
AdLib 7 days ago
murph, is the Tammy Duckworth?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Good to hear it, PPO! Hope that recovery just gets better and better.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Hey Pink, how ya doin?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hi, KT, OK just now
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO – Sounds like it’s okay though if not ideal. Hope you’re not in much pain.
AdLib 7 days ago
glad to hear it!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad, that’s it. a lot more soreness this time.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Kes–it’s hard when they really start growing up, isn’t it? On one hand, you want them to be independent adults; on the other hand, you want them to be your “babies” forever.
glenn

7 days ago
KT…it is tammy duckworth.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Murph – Kirk should be scared. He’s going to lose to Tammy.
AdLib 7 days ago
P, Australia needs to let you have some medical wacky tobaccki.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Right, glenn. And he is so darned funny. I laugh all the time when he’s around!
kesmarn

7 days ago
Ad–do you think there’s a chance that Bernie will ever be ahead on elected delegates?
glenn

7 days ago
PPO – Hope you’re able to keep the swelling down.
AdLib 7 days ago
I thought I recognized the name. How’s she doing so far?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Kt, it’s here ok, just I don’t indulge. I’ve actually given up the smokes!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Ad…she is even more impressive in person…not a great orator but sharp in conversation and smart….was working on a PhD in PoliSci before being called up.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
PPO–glad to have you here with us tonight. Hope your healing continues well.
glenn

7 days ago
Ad, got compression stocking for the swelling. Diong ok
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Thanks glenn. It was a pisser being in hospital last week for all the fun
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
I’m trying to quit cigarettes myself. I’m wearing a nicotine patch right now. Too damned expensive and unhealthy.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – I think it is possible foor Bernie to catch up and pass Hillary but not probable. It would take a lot of big wins, especially in the big states like here in CA and NY.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT, my mantra is a bit like AA. I may have one tomorrow, but not today.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO..I ave someone living with me now…a 76 year old recovering from hip surgery…I know compression stockings well…
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Kes–aww, that’s so cool to hear about your son.
glenn

7 days ago
Murph – Her strength comes across, IMO.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey Murph!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Homie, I quit quite a while ago, but I still look at the prices of cigarettes and they’re nearly $6 a pack now if I’m not mistaken!
kesmarn

7 days ago
There are always edibles. It does help with pain and inflamation.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–so how is Bernie doing in CA?
glenn

7 days ago
Ad…..she does not back down but she also manages to be respectful….quite the feat.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Kes, try $AUD25 a pack!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
I have a bit of artheritus in my right hip. It really helps with that.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Seriously, PPO!!!?? WOW!
kesmarn

7 days ago
PPO – Glad to hear you’re home now. You were in the hospital for days or a week?
AdLib 7 days ago
8 days, Ad.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO–have to echo Ad, glad to hear you’re home.
glenn

7 days ago
Holy Jeebus P! I thought $7.50 was outrageous!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
PPO–wow–eight days in hospital. That’s a long time!
glenn

7 days ago
thanks, glenn. Great to be with my pals online again. Missed it big time.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Kt, works out about $1 per stick
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO….in the U.S. the insurance issues have resulted in releasing people back to home care way too early…..requiring lots of help on the home side of theings.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
$7.50 Homie?! Wow… I am behind the times — thinking they were $6.
kesmarn

7 days ago
PPO–I always get cheered up on Friday nights on VOX. Hope it works the same for you, too.
glenn

7 days ago
That’s downright criminal!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – Bernie is close too Hillary and closing. June is a while away, he’ll need too win by a big margin to catch her on overall delegates. It’s possible. Last poll I saw was Hillary 48 Bernie 41.
AdLib 7 days ago
Murph, yes, same here, but my doc said that I was to stay until I could walk on my own (with stick), so I did that
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Murph–I was thinking the same thing about releasing people too early. And, then, the insurance companies won’t pay for the home care! Is that the still the case even with the ACA?
glenn

7 days ago
Cigarrettes in Mo…..”Decades” are $5 a pack..and that is really cheap!
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
You’re right on that, Murph! People being pitched out of the hospital way too early. If there’s not family available, there’s real trouble.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Ad–That’s pretty close, isn’t it?
glenn

7 days ago
glenn, It sure does brighten my saturday afternoon here ( 13.45 right now)
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO – Wow, that really speaks to how serious this was! So glad you’re okay, home and on the mend!
AdLib 7 days ago
PPO…sounds like the denizens of Oz are more enlightened than we are.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Yep glenn, that’s very close and months to go for him to build on that. BTW, it’s the smallest margin so far so he is improving.
AdLib 7 days ago
PPO–oops–I “know” about the time/day difference; just “forget” it sometimes. Ahhh–the “joys” of senior citizenship!
glenn

7 days ago
BRB, in about 5 min!
AdLib 7 days ago
Glenn…more peple are covered but how wide and long the coverage is remains too little for too short a time.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
I saw a Bloomberg national poll that showed Bernie at 49% to Hillary’s 48%
kesmarn

7 days ago
Kes…that is why this man is rooming with me now. No family nearby.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
He’s lucky to have you there, Murph.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Murph–since it is the insurance companies running things, that’s why coverage is too little; too short a time.
glenn

7 days ago
Murph, not really, just a different mindset where the actual Doctors and Petients know what’s best, and fuck the Insurance companies!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Can anyone believe we actually have two PRESIDENTIAL candidates that are attacking each other’s wives? What’s next, their mothers?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph–you are a good man, my friend!
glenn

7 days ago
Just when you think they’ve hit rock bottom, Homie…. Hey… I say that every single week! (The GOP candidates, that is.)
kesmarn

7 days ago
The roomig thing is part of an outreach from my church……
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Kes–there is no rock bottom with republicans. They just keep digging the hole deeper.
glenn

7 days ago
hahahahaha GOP baggers hahahaha
Harleigh

7 days ago
They’re going to end up in China, glenn. Poor China.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Harleigh–how are you? Long time, no see!
glenn

7 days ago
Kes, saw PBO’s News with Gergin excoriating both Drumpf and Cruz! What pieces of work they both are
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Damn I know Homie. It’s a bottomless pit. Hey Cruz, you’re mama’s so fat, that when she backs up, she emits a beeping sound!”
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hey, Harleigh!
kesmarn

7 days ago
PPO = still you all have system that begins with the docs and their patients…
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Kes–I wish they would end up in China! Then we’d be rid of them!
glenn

7 days ago
Harleigh, what’s up?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I wonder if there’s any truth to the Cruz infidelity stories. There’s so much mud being slung, it’s hard to tell if anything’s true.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Been workig 7 days, just got up from my afternoon nap a couple hours ago in time to go to bed. LOL
Harleigh

7 days ago
brb…
kesmarn

7 days ago
Murph, it only works like that if you’re lucky to have private cover. Otherwise you’d have a long wait and then be bundled out asap.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
KT–hey trump–your mama must have small hands, too!
glenn

7 days ago
brb
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
kes I love the infidelity stories and they are probably true ala Gary Hart, John Edwards, Newtie etc
Harleigh

7 days ago
LOL! It wouldn’t surprise me. Nothing will, at this point!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Kes–it wouldn’t surprise me if the infidelity stories about cruz are true. But even if they are, with republicans nowadays, it may not hurt him. After all, he’s still not trump! That seems to be the defining characteristic now! Forget about policies; he’s just not trump!
glenn

7 days ago
Harleigh, I can’t imagine any woman wanting to have sex with Cruz. Even his wife.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–well, even cruz’s wife doesn’t want to kiss him in public!
glenn

7 days ago
KT LMAO… use Brylcreem instead of KY Jelly! eeeewwww
Harleigh

7 days ago
LOL Harleigh! A little dab will do ya!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
They don’t kiss him because he eats buggers!
Harleigh

7 days ago
His daughter won’t let him kiss her.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT and Harleigh–eeeewww to both of you!
glenn

7 days ago
My apologies, glenn.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
yeah me too glenn
Harleigh

7 days ago
PPO…oh! Then it is like here….sad and bad.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
KT and Harleigh–apologies accepted. But it was very funny!
glenn

7 days ago
Glenn…the not kissing thing is fundamentalist prudery I thinki
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
heh heh heh
Harleigh

7 days ago
I wonder if the GOP will try to dump Trump at the convention.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph–sounds good. But I thought you only couldn’t kiss before marriage. Aren’t they married?
glenn

7 days ago
Always appreciated!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I’m hoping for a brokered cornvention! Palin-Bachmann 2016 fer jebus! glory!
Harleigh

7 days ago
Glenn…public displays of affection are “demonstrations of lust”.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Harleigh …… and Golly!
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
KT–Didn’t read the article; but saw a headline that says that trump’s peeps are coming up with a “strategy” for that scenario. Wonder if it will involve a “second amendment remedy” since the repubs now want to allow guns at the convention. What could go wrong?
glenn

7 days ago
Oh Harleigh that would be comedy manna from heaven!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph–oh, okay. Whatever.
glenn

7 days ago
Yeah glenn. Trump made veiled threats about trouble could happen.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Glenn…just a wee bit up tight.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
oh man, A GOP shootout. Well, they’ve all been shooting themselves in the foot.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Well….I am shutting down…just too tired. Good night all. Happy Easter!
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Murph–yup! Or maybe they’re just stuck in the teenage years. I remember when our daughter was a teenager, she was appalled if her father and I held hands in public. It “embarrased” her.
glenn

7 days ago
Maybe they need to aim a little higher!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT no shit mon but if I had told everyone what was going to happen a year ago you all would have told me I was delusional. Guns at a convention! I hope they aLL GET drunk and start blasting.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Later Murph!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
‘NIte, Murph, sleep well.
glenn

7 days ago
Night murph
Harleigh

7 days ago
Back again. Just in time to say G’night to Murph.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Man, the irony would be priceless!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I’m just glad that KT and I are not in the Cleveland part of this state because that GOP convention is going to make Chicago 1968 look like a Sunday school picnic.
kesmarn

7 days ago
I can’t believe the past year of the baggers. LOL I’m glad Scalia died too.
Harleigh

7 days ago
All I have to say is you better not be a bearded man (or woman) at the repub convention or you’ll be classified as ISIS. After all, that’s their justification for carrying guns. What a bunch of fear-filled individuals!
glenn

7 days ago
It just might kes. I’m going nowhere near the place. I wouldn’t be able to keep from projectile vomiting.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Kes–oh yeah! And the media coverage will be “interesting” too.
glenn

7 days ago
Leave your rag hat, hijab and beanie at home too!
Harleigh

7 days ago
I’m staying in NW Ohio too. No Cleveland excursions for me!
kesmarn

7 days ago
Thank goodness for the internet.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
This will be a media circus, glenn!
kesmarn

7 days ago
Kes and KT–glad to hear you’re both going to be far away! Of course, it will be in your living room every night no matter where you are!
glenn

7 days ago
I’ve heard about Trump trying to get delegates who are uncommitted and Cruz trying to push his people in as delegates so they’ll turn to him even if elected to support Trump. Cruz is a sneaky bastard.
AdLib 7 days ago
I’ll be watching, for sure. I love violent meltdowns!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
There’s no escape, glenn. But there’ll be a certain entertainment factor.
kesmarn

7 days ago
I can’t wait! Like their first debate circus. wow. I’m hyped
Harleigh

7 days ago
Kes–The entertainment factor will be like slowing down to watch the aftermath of a car wreck. Except this will be the wreck of our country!
glenn

7 days ago
Scott Walker thinks he’s going to get the nomination, instead of Trump. He has a worse chance than Trump does, of being president.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Cleveland is a blue town and they’re not afraid to get out in the streets so the GOPers had better behave themselves!
kesmarn

7 days ago
Na glenn. Hopefully just the GOP.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–Is that really true about Walker? Now, there’s another sleazeball!
glenn

7 days ago
KT, you Kes and Monica should sneak into the GOP convention just for fun. It should be outrageous.
AdLib 7 days ago
That’s true Homie. They like a good fight.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Yeah glenn. I saw an article about it earlier today. It’s not going to happen though. If it does, I’d be really surprised.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Walker, Kasich and Paul Ryan are three people I cannot abide. Now Ryan is saying that he’s had a “come-to-Jesus” awakening regarding the fact that people might be poor for legit reasons. “They’re not all ‘takers’.” Too little too late, Paulie.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Kes–I really do worry that protesters in Cleveland will not be safe. As you say, it seems to be shaping up as a repeat of the 1968 Dem convention.
glenn

7 days ago
The timing is abit suspicious Homie.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
It could get nasty, glenn. Seriously.
kesmarn

7 days ago
The BLM movement has some very legit grievances and I don’t think they’re in the mood to take any crap in Cleveland.
kesmarn

7 days ago
There is no Repub who they could draft that wouldn’t lose. Many Trump voters will bolt the GOP if they steal the nom from him and that’s about 1/3 of the party. Dems would crush whoever the Repubs ran.
AdLib 7 days ago
Kes–poor little Paulie. Speaker of the House, and no one hardly mentions his name.
glenn

7 days ago
LOL Lyin Ryan and Walker the Wanker. Now there’s a ticket from heaven!
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh–but do the liar and the wanker beat the half-wit and the twit?
glenn

7 days ago
The two of them together don’t have one soul, Harl.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Good one, Harleigh!
AdLib 7 days ago
Kes–nor a full brain!
glenn

7 days ago
Right, AdLib. Their loyalty is to Trump. Not the party.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Kes their top 10 have no soul.
Harleigh

7 days ago
‘Zactly!
kesmarn

7 days ago
Harleigh–just for clarification–the half-wit and the twit are palin and bachman. So which pair is the “better” dream team?
glenn

7 days ago
That’s because they weren’t conceived, they just grew, like mold!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–good one!
glenn

7 days ago
Thanks glenn, I try!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I have to admit, though, that the more I see of Hillary and Bill, the less impressed I am. I really is starting to feel like a shotgun wedding with them and the base of the Dem Party.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Okay, folks, my turn to say good night. Early soccer game tomorrow. Hope everyone has a great weekend, and a Happy Easter, if you celebrate that.
glenn

7 days ago
“It” not “I”
kesmarn

7 days ago
night glenn, as always, it’s been fun
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
G’night, glenn! Enjoy the game and Happy Easter!
kesmarn

7 days ago
I have been pitching Palin – Bachmann since 2007 when mcain lost to some black guy!! Got me kicked off of the old Huffington post for a couple hours.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Hillary is having a fund-raiser tonight. Some of the tickets are $325,400. I saw that someone calculated that it would take a min. wage worker 5 years, working 24 hours/day to make that much money.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Well folks, I think I’m out too. Take care and remember the secret to a happy life! Don’t eat anything bigger than your head!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
And don’t eat anything that Ted Cruz would eat! G’night, Homie!
kesmarn

7 days ago
I think I’d better call it a day too. Have a great weekend and Happy Easter to all who celebrate!

The fact is Ad,about 2 years ago I was diagnosed with COPD,It flipped my world upside down,changed me forever.I have since gotten IBS,it is a bitch of a thing because it is not easily treated,Sress is involved.I have a bad case,but am working on the stress part

That’s a lot to have to deal with. Dealing with stress is critical.
AdLib 7 days ago
Even the things I have read say “it’s a chicken and an egg thing” so frustrating! There’s the rub,I have to relax more
Beatlex

Exactly, it’s a vicious circle. Stress can intensify those issues…and dealing with them creates more stress.

You have been a consistent pleasure to listen to Ad.Clever,FUNNY,and prolific.You often say what what I am thinking,but don’t have the ability to put it down in words the way you do.I do Okay for a grade 10 graduate.Streetwise,and always currious

Means a lot to hear that, thanks. I think curiosity is more valuable than many other traits. Inspires creativity and insight.
AdLib 7 days ago
for sure Ad,when I was a child I always wanted to figure out how things work
Beatlex

Same here. Picked out a book when I was younger, “How Things Work”, explained the mechanics of a wide variety of things.

Just apply that to politics, people and society now!

What are your thoughts on addiction Ad? Can you speak to that?
Beatlex

7 days ago
Yep, two big losses. Really stunned at how sudden Gary’s death was. Like you, I was a big fan. The Larry Sanders show is brilliant.

In what sense?

What do you generally think about it,
Beatlex

I like to know how non addicts see addiction Ad,it helps me
Beatlex

It depends on the situation. Speaking very generally, I think most people have addictions of one kind or another, it’s a natural weakness of being human. But when it comes to drugs, it’s very complicated. There are people who are more prone to addiction simply because of brain chemistry, which may or may not also affect one’s emotions. I think there’s a wide range of psychological and physical combinations that can contribute to it.
AdLib 7 days ago
And sometimes life is just damn difficult and it can be hard to fend off the urge to tranquilize it.
AdLib 7 days ago
Weakness? How is an illness weakness? That is the way sober people see it usually,as if to say “suck it up and just quit!” The evidence points more to genetics,IMO,I come from a line of addicts
Beatlex

You misunderstand, I’m talking about the human condition. That’s why I said most people have addictions of one kind or another, it’s part of the human condition.
AdLib 7 days ago
I get that Ad,but do really think it is weakness? Upbringing too has a lot to do with it.I just learned recently that my great grandfather was a pedophile! It explained a lot about my familes dysfunction.The drinking,drugs,and stunted feelings.The worst part was that I found out that my oldest brother was a victim of that bastard! That threw me for a loop.I just want to give you one perspective Ad,Thanks for letting me vent
Beatlex

Sure Beatlex. That’s quite a heavy load to carry, I’m so sorry to hear this. Horrible. Are you close with your brother?
AdLib 7 days ago
Yes,in our way,he is about to turn 65.I have not asked him about it,I learned it through an elderly relative’s book.The truth is I am an addict also.But Bob had real anger issues that he never talked about. He did some acting and got a Major in English! He taught for a while until his demons ended that

I do NOT want to come on as whiney Ad.I just want to be honest,that is my key to sobriety,I am not there yet,but I will never give up trying.It’s coming
Beatlex

Brothers can be complicated enough without something so awful building walls between them. The anger issues are so understandable and unfortunately, so is the addiction. You don’t come off as whiny at all, takes cajones to be honest.
AdLib 7 days ago
It’s a process though, dealing with addiction. Not giant steps but smaller steps, I think.
AdLib 7 days ago
I am one of the survivors so far Ad,I have lost several friends to early death,some from booze,a lot by cancer. I am not a believer in a god,but I do believe in spirituality. And in my life,I have met several people who have changed me for the good.And I believe that I have met the people I have for a reason.Sometimes I change their life! Even you Ad,you and a lot of people I have met on the interwebs.Mostly American! You and guys like KT,girls like Kes,you are all so interesting!
