AdLib On September - 2 - 2016
Vox Populi, our weekly live chat on the week’s events begins tonight at 7:00pm PDT. Hope to see you then!

Hey Murph!
AdLib 7 days ago
I am here early…..what can we do to get some more of the old gang here? I miss the diversity of views and the great depth of experience that the dozen or so of us brought here week in and week out…
MurphTheSurf3

Vox is unique and this software makes our conversation flow with lots of nice extras for posting.
MurphTheSurf3

Summer is always a slower time, some folks get a bit busy.
AdLib 7 days ago
How are things your way?
AdLib 7 days ago
I hope so. Are you still in contact with most of that gang?
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Yes, along with leaves, I think some will return in The Fall.
AdLib 7 days ago
Going ok. Tammy is doing well in Il. In Mo. Trump is only up by 1. Statewide, the Dem slate is a competent one. Several local elections have seen the right wingers go down in defeat especially in law enforcement.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
That’s very encouraging. It’s still remarkable to me that MO is in play!
AdLib 7 days ago
And counting on Tammy to win! We need that Senate back, may have more than one SCOTUS judge to replace.
AdLib 7 days ago
Reid said that the Dems may get rid of the filibuster for the most part if they retake The Senate.
AdLib 7 days ago
I am generally so sour on our governmental structure that I embrace any effort to shake up the lockdown we now have.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
The filibuster has to go. I know that can stop Dems from blocking while they’re not in the majority but it means things can actually get done when they are. And as long as we focus on keeping a Dem in the WH…
AdLib 7 days ago
It should be reformed so it can only be used in great moderation, as it always was used before Obama was elected.
AdLib 7 days ago
Return the filibuster to its original form….the floor must be held by the Senator wanting to put himself on the line….have a means of stopping even that after a period of time…maybe the 60 vote super majority.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
And only for certain functions, maybe passing a budget and certain other select situations. It should not be allowed broadly.
AdLib 7 days ago
Agreed.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Can you imagine how heavily McConnell is drinking nowadays?
AdLib 7 days ago
The sullen silence from the establishment GOP is stunning…an gin buzz is he only sanctuary.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
What do you think about The House being flipped?
AdLib 7 days ago
I saw a pundit saying that he thought only the LA Times polls are correct, which are widely oversampling Repubs (The Times is a conservative paper now). I think polls are underestimating the Latino and black turnout. Trump is energizing the whole Dem base.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad…still very unlikely….gerrymandering…but in a wave election they could close. I think that the GOP strategy has shifted to limiting the damage of a foregone Trump loss. The coverage of her “scandals” is a key to this. Today we revisit the FBI investigation as if it is new info. Last week it was the Clinton Foundation (which has now apparently blown over as the AP report was riddled with holes.)
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
OH YEAH! It’s Labor Day Friday! We may not have as many folks here tonight but hang in there!
AdLib 7 days ago
Yes, it seems so obvious and predictable that the MSM would do its best to try and pull Hillary’s numbers down to try and force a tighter race. There is NOTHING in the FBI release of its report that is damaging, nothing in the CGI that is, the manipulation seems so obvious!
AdLib 7 days ago
I will give it a bit more time….but I had planned an early night….I spent the day at a nursing home helping friends deal with the need to change the level of care for their father. Bureaucracy!
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Hey folks! What is this…tres hombres?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
The MSM promoted the Hillary “health” BS too. Everything including the kitchen sink.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hola, Senor KT! Have a taco?
AdLib 7 days ago
Hi glenn!
AdLib 7 days ago
i’d love one! Thanks!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
One report out tonight is that the FBI release was actually pushed by its lawyers who expect the GOP to release info from those documents in dribs and drabs intending to make things look as bad as possible.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Hi Glenn and KT…
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Senora Glenn in da casa!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Cuatro almas sabias!
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Murph – Hillary’s campaign wanted the FBI report released fully for the same reason. Smart. The Repubs would have distorted it completely, just releasing exaggerations from it. Now, they can’t!
AdLib 7 days ago
Yo esta aqui! Como esta?
glenn

7 days ago
Esta bien, mi amiga!
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad….well, they can and will but there will be a quick comeback.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Maddow on in the background, saying Trump would need 47% of Latinos to win. He was at 19% before his “Hate Latinos and their Taco Trucks” speech this week so that will go down. He is toast.
AdLib 7 days ago
I can’t believe they’re still beating that dead horse. Mui loco.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph–according to a few reports I read, the repubs had already started “leaking” from the FBI notes; which the FBI said would be a crime. I think the FBI released them to save their republican colleagues from having to face charges of releasing classified information
glenn

7 days ago
Side note: I was at a meeting for the election….and there were four black pastors there…ALL really angry at Trump’s upcoming appearances at “black” churches…and angrier with black surrogates speaking for him….
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Glenn…another take on the release…hmmmm
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
I saw a black guy on MSNBC stumping for Trump. Sad, very sad.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph – I’ll bet Hillary rebounds into a bigger and firmer lead after the first debate. Trump will come at her like a psycho killer but she’ll take him down and he’ll look horrible.
AdLib 7 days ago
Murph–did you see trump’s scripted list of questions and answers for his church appearance? Plus, he’s not meeting the parishioners, just the pastor in a pre-scripted interview.
glenn

7 days ago
I think HIllary “the prosecutor,” will be there, come debate night.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
AND…one of the church’s he is appearing at….well, it’s the hall attached to the parish and he rented it…the pastor is tweeting that he and his congregation have nothing to do with it.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
How Trumpian, Murph!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph – Hmm…maybe the black pastors were upset about all blacks being portrayed as living in ghetto war zones? And the scripted Q & A that was Trump had schemed for tomorrow.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–the polls seem to be narrowing. I hope the debates turn them around again. If trump’s speech on immigration doesn’t change some minds of independents, I don’t know what will. I didn’t watch it; but the transcript is enough to make me sick!
glenn

7 days ago
Ad…yes that and more.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Hey, WADDYA GOT LOSE!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–Let’s see, your dignity, your freedom, your right to exist in the U.S……
glenn

7 days ago
Trump’s “speech,” lost him a few Latino staffers. His own staffers. If that doesn’t tell anybody something about Trump, I don’t know what would.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
That’s about it glenn.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Some people say America is a semi-police state. With Trump, we’d be a full blown police state.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–hmmm…”some people say”. Isn’t it amazing how we have come to accept the absurd as normal?
glenn

7 days ago
well, it WAS normal, before the yammering circus peanut got hold of it.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – I’m not concerned about the polls, if you notice, it’s just Hillary’s bounce from the convention fading, likely due to all the phony “scandals” the MSM has been spreading right from Trump’s campaign. But if you notice, her numbers have gone down a bit…but Trump’s haven’t moved. He’s been stuck under 40% since the conventions. Hillary can bring those voters back, Trump isn’t attracting them.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT–I guess “some people say” has replaced “they” as the invisible voter.
glenn

7 days ago
Trump’s secret, underground horde of voters.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–I still can’t believe that 40% of the electorate believes that trump would make a good POTUS. It just blows my mind!
glenn

7 days ago
KT – No question, we would bbe living in a virtual facsist state with Trump in the WH. Storm troopers breaking down the doors of anyone suspected of the crime of being Latino and…one of the things in his speech that hasn’t gotten the attention it should…having a loyalty test for immigrants to enter the US. So if a Repub like Trump is President and an immigrant doesn’t like them, as Americans are allowed, they would be barred from entry. Pretty scary!
AdLib 7 days ago
I want him to lose this election so badly that his cult followers have to hide back under their rocks.
glenn

7 days ago
i really have to wonder about 40%.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
The untettered electorate has the attention span of squirrel and the depth of reflection of a gnat…..
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
For sure, glenn. I also want the GOP to be thoroughly humiliated for allowing themselves to become what they are.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – It is a bit disturbing but when one considers that Trump’s voters are primarily uneducated white males, it isn’t as shocking. One would guess that they make up much of that percentage of voters.
AdLib 7 days ago
Murph–but they sure remember Benghazi! and emails! Even though not one of them could tell you the results of any of the investigations! Just repeat the two! And throw in Vince Foster for good measure!
glenn

7 days ago
And now Trump has hired a Hillary Hating Hit Man for the 90’s as a Deputy Campaign Director.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
glenn – I don’t know that most of those uneducated bigots have any concept of what would make a good President or that Trump has the abilities needed, I think they are just angry, white men who are mostly bigoted and pissed off that their lives have become disappointments while some people of color are doing very well.
AdLib 7 days ago
Citizens United president David Bossie is the latest Donald Trump hire He has deep roots in the GOP’s anti-Clinton history beginning with a research-chief role in the 1990s congressional ‘Whitewater’ investigation Produced the 2008 anti-Hillary movie that led to a Supreme Court case that opened the door for unlimited fundraising by ‘super PACs’ Trump on Bossie: ‘Solid. Smart. Loves politics, knows how to win’
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
I think most Trump supporters, at this point in time, don’t care about the economy, jobs, the fight against Islamic terrorism, they just want to make America white again. Ser
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–in my mind, that doesn’t explain all of it. I think “uneducated” is the wrong word. There are many people I know with only a high school education who are “uneducated”, but not like trump cult followers. I think a better word for them is “terrified”. They’re terrified of the “other” because they don’t know any better. You can say that they won’t educate themselves; so perhaps it should be “willfully uneducated”.
glenn

7 days ago
KT – I don’t know that the 37% or so that Trump has is an overestimation. For the most part, it’s educated Americans vs. easily duped uneducated Americans…which it’s kind of always been. What Repub hasn’t played the base for fools?
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey, Trump gets only “the best people.”
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph–I read that; this is perhaps trump’s scariest hire yet. However there’s still time until the election, so he can probably come up with some other rwnj before then.
glenn

7 days ago
KT – Does the GOP survive after Nov? I hear the RWs in The House want to come after Ryan and if not remove him, force him to conform to policies they want in place.
AdLib 7 days ago
That’s a damn good question, Ad. Parties have disappeared before. I think the republicans were the whigs before they were republicans. I think Lincoln was one.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Open question to all, what happens to the GOP after November if Trump loses as expected? Will it become a civil war, with Estab Repubs trying to push Baggers out of power and vice-versa?
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–I think Boehner is laughing his ass off about now. It appears lyin’ ryan wasn’t quite the “savior” he was supposed to be.
glenn

7 days ago
Murph – Yes, I saw that segment on Maddow, Trump hiring Bossie. It is going to get very ugly but my bet is that it will boomerang back on Trump and blow up his negatives even more.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad, imagine how the turmoil will intensify if Trump loses by a landslide!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I mean within the GOP!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–I think that is definitely an “open” question. I think there almost has to be a civil war, because I don’t think the baggers are going to “go quietly in the night.” The question attached to yours is, how will the press handle the civil war? Will we still have to put up with “false equivalency”?
glenn

7 days ago
KT–can they have an autopsy of an autopsy?
glenn

7 days ago
KT – I agree, most TrumpHeads just see his candidacy as giving the finger to all the people and things they hate. They don’t care that he’s all lies, they just are stupid-angry.
AdLib 7 days ago
Yep!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
They’re going to need one, glenn.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Post November……in the last month Clinton raised 40 million, Trump, it seems, raised less than half that. $$$ from big donors is drying up, even from the few who were with him. I think the establishment is going to work to reestablish itself which means massacres of the right wing. This is a Mafia war between different families.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
“stupid-angry,” is a great descriptor.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Isn’t Trump spending most of campaign funds on stupid shit like the hats, and signs and bumper stickers and such? He only has what, 2 TV ads?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph–good description. What do you think will be the “collateral damage” to Congress, and therefore, the American public?
glenn

7 days ago
KT – Yes, the Whigs preceded Repubs and Lincoln and other Presidents were Whigs originally. However, with our modern society being so brand loyal, I don’t think Estab Repubs would ever leave the GOP to start their own party, only the RW nutjobs would. If Trump led them to it but I don’t think he would want the work it would involve, much easier and ego gratifying to start up Trump News and lord over his bowing followers.
AdLib 7 days ago
Oy Vey!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–according to what I’ve read, trump is spending most of his money on trump hotels, reimbursing himself for use of his jet, his office headquarters (where he tripled the rent once the RNC started paying for it), and things like that.
glenn

7 days ago
That sounds like Trump.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Speaking of ads, kudos to Hillary’s ad team. They have produced some powerful ads!
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – No doubt, Boehner was probably pissed off at how Ryan the know-it-all acted as if he could control the lunatics in The House because they promised him that. But now, Boehner’s probably playing a drinking game for every time Ryan is insulted by members of his own party.
AdLib 7 days ago
Spill the Wine, Spill the Wine, Spill the Wine…..
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Glenn…the collateral damage….a weakened GOP in the House willing to cut deals with the Dems to get things moving…..and in the Senate….a Dem majority but not a super majority….if things go as they should then they will be all about “acceptable losses.”
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Using Trumps own words against him, in context, is devastating.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–Ryan is such a smug little prick–I hope the rw runs all over his ass!
glenn

7 days ago
Me too glenn. Just desserts and all.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – That’s what I would guess. The Estab Repubs would try to grab power back from the Baggers insisting that they had their chance with Trump being the candidate and lost big time while the Baggers will fight back and claim the Estab didn’t support Trump and that’s why he lost. Estab Repubs will want to try again to lure Latinos back while Baggers will be energized about how mainstreamed their bigotry has become under Trump and want to build on that. It could be the eruption we’ve been waiting for!
AdLib 7 days ago
From Wi…a friend of mine who lives in Ryan’s district claims that Ryan has promised his supporters that he wants to restore the power of the Speakership which means being willing to spill blood and to pass out favors.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Murph–so you think the “establishment” pubs will cut deals with Dems? Doesn’t that come with the “death penalty” in pub land? Will we actually see Congress as a governing body again?
glenn

7 days ago
it’s the Art of the Deal, Murph!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad….the establishment is going to be bankrolled by the Big Money folks….in the end that will turn the battle their way…
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
money talks, bullshit walks! Trite but true.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph – True, looks like the threat of Repub money going to down ballot instead of Trump has been implemented now. Trump will be on his own in reality but the GOP will publicly keep supporting him…until the big loss then they will bury him like a week old tuna.
AdLib 7 days ago
Glenn….the establishment pubs need results to win back their control….they will do what they must….how about immigration reform?
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Murph–if Big Money rules again, then aren’t we back to the same old shit? Lower taxes, less regulation, repeal Obamacare?
glenn

7 days ago
hA! McCain is acting like Hillary has already won the election. I think it’s time Crash “spent more time with the family.”
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
No. Big Money is realistic and it will make deals…they have their priorities and their realities…..
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Oh, I hope the senate loses McCain.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT…McCain will win easily in Az.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
KT – Trump’s finally spending $2M or so on ads but yes, his rallies and merchandise are eating up so much more of his cash. I think he’s definitely investing in a post-election kingdom over his rubes.
AdLib 7 days ago
You think, even at 80? Then again, there was Strom Thurmond. Not from AZ, but still serves as a good example.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Man, as if Palin wasn’t enough.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
“Republican John McCain and Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick are tied at 43 percent support each in their race for McCain’s U.S. Senate seat, a survey out Thursday showed.”

Poll: McCain, Kirkpatrick in Senate Race Dead Heat
Latest survey, taken before Tuesday’s primary, shows 15% undecided.

AdLib 7 days ago
Murph–Interesting news in GA. Seems the GA Chamber of Commerce has a task force in place to try to opt into Medicare to try to get some of those federal funds. Seems that too many rural hospitals in the state are closing, in addition to businesses complaining that the cost of insurance is going up, and the people have no subsidies to help them, so the employers are paying more for insurance. Of course, being that this is GA, they’re going to come up something that lets them accept federal funds keeping “conservative principles” intact!
glenn

7 days ago
Ad that is the usual pattern in Az…McCain wins in the long haul.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Gramps needs to go.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Glenn…unless there are deep fixes to ACA it will be on life support before long….
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Glenn…but good news about GA and Medicaid.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
I think McCain is partly responsible for the Tea Party. Latching onto Palin was such a YUGE mistake, in so many ways.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph – Maybe so but this is a different year and if enough Latinos are registered and energized in AZ, McCain could absolutely lose. After all, he has endorsed Trump.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad..you are correct..Latinos are now the wild card…and if they are enraged and motivated and ignore McCain’s efforts to distance himself fro Trump, he could go down. Unfortunately his opponent is not a firestarter. Nice lady, competent legislator.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
If Kirkpatrick is smart she will use McCain’s split ticket argument against McCain because that’s scarier. Wouldn’t AZ need a Dem Senator to stand up to a Pres Trump? That seems far more urgent than having McCain standing up to Hillary.
AdLib 7 days ago
one would think so, Ad.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph – Yes, saw Kirkpatrick interviewed, she’s not Ms. Charisma but have you seen how “low energy” McCain is now? What she needs to do is focus on having smart ad-makers to hammer McCain as a Trump Repub. Latinos coould really turn out to send a message to Trump by voting against McCain.
AdLib 7 days ago
i’m not wishing anything bad for Gramps, but maybe nature will intervene.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
What in the hell motivates these black and hispanic “leaders” to let themselves be used by the Trump campaign.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Repubs are starting to use the split ticket pitch to voters, I sure hope Dems just turn it around on them since undecided voters will be more scared of Trump than Hillary.
AdLib 7 days ago
good question Murph. I think they crave acceptance among the rich and powerful.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT….probably…and not a few are looking for a seat on the gravy train.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Murph–what changes have to be made to Obamacare? Do you think we’ll ever get single payer?
glenn

7 days ago
for sure. I think it’s also an identity confusion thing. Maybe a bit of self loathing.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – Same here, not wishing it happens but at his age, something could happen. Besides that, McCain would probably be pretty bad in a debate at this point. He’s really gone downhill. Wish voters wouldn’t be so robotic in electing elderly pols just on name recognition. If they can do the job and earn it, fine but the name recognition crap makes our election outcomes look far less democratic than most countries. We usually have over a 90% re-election rate for incumbents which is pretty bad.
AdLib 7 days ago
Glenn…so many….most about expanding the markets to get the insurers back into the pools they dropped out of.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
I mean really, what self respecting black person, or Latino person support, The Donald.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–or maybe it’s “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em”. They just don’t realize that after they have served their purpose, they will be abandoned at the speed of light, just like Michael Steele.
glenn

7 days ago
Yeah, glenn, there probably some of that in the mix, as well.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad…..90 percent return for incumbents and 40 percent voting.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
And here’s a proposition, I wonder if voters currently flirting with voting for Johnson or Stein will veer back to Hillary after they’re left behind in the debates.
AdLib 7 days ago
It’s a possibility, for sur, Ad.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–I don’t think many of those voters will veer back to Hillary. They will just think that the “establishment” won’t let them have a seat at the table, which is the whole point of voting for one of them.
glenn

7 days ago
…the whole point of voting for Johnson or Stein.
glenn

7 days ago
Crazy, ain’t it glenn.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph – Like the “taco truck” guy, they are self-hating conformists and opportunists. They betray their communities proudly. It’s like the weird kid who starts hanging out with the neo-nazis because no one else will give him attention.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT–in a way, yes. In a way, they are making inroads. The latest I saw is that Johnson is polling at 12%, which is pretty good for a third party, I think.
glenn

7 days ago
BINGO, Ad!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad…accurate comparison.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
i’ll never see anything actually useful when it comes to “conscience voting.” I just think it’s such a waste.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – Think of the higher percenatges Hillary had after the convention, some of those have gone back to undecided, most will end up voting for her. Trump’s track record in the GOP primaries was that he’d almost always lose the undecided votes big to others. Because most undecided still have a firm idea of who Trump is and the closer we get too the election, the scarier the prospect of him possibly winning.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT–It helps the smug and self-righteous sleep at night.
glenn

7 days ago
I hope so, glenn, they should get SOMETHING out of it. If they still have house to sleep in.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT….several people at our Dem organizing meeting suggested we propose support for another Democrat “as a matter of conscience” because of how “corrupt Hillary is”…..in a state like Mo where the margin could be razor thin such talk is the stuff of lemmings planning on a stroll to the beach.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Ad–I hope you’re right. Every time I think the public has gotten sane again, trump’s poll numbers seem to go up. We’ll see once the election gets closer.
glenn

7 days ago
A long walk off a tall cliff is more like it Murph!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – Conscience Voting seems more a thing of youth, when you do things out of principle without thinking long term. As you get older, you think more long term and realize that gesture vs. opposing fascism…hmm…the revolution will have to be patient, we’ve got a bigoted dictator to prevent.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey PPO! How’s Fergie doing?
AdLib 7 days ago
Hi, folks, just a quick visit for me. Fergie’s doing it tough right now with an infection. Seeing thesurgeon Monday
pinkpantheroz

One would hope, Ad. I do agree though.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
PPO – greetings to you.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
KT–thanks to those of us who will vote for Hillary, they will still have that house. That’s the catch 22, isn’t it? They get to be smug and self-righteous while we save their asses!
glenn

Hi, Murph, ad glenn

Ah America, don’t cha love it. We’re C a razy!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
PPO–so sorry to hear about Fergie. Hope she can fight it!
glenn

7 days ago
Murph – Geniuses. Maybe they could just encourage all Dems not to vote as a protest instead? The Repub landslide would really make a big statement to…er…who again?
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey P. An ifection doesn’t sound good P. I hope Fergie is in no serious danger.
KillgoreTrout

Damn, PPO! She’s on antibiotics now though, right?

PPO – That’s messed up! So sorry, hope she’s able to get some sleep between now and then.
AdLib 7 days ago
Man that sucks P.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph–did you ask them to explain Hillary’s “corruption”? And explain to them that trump is the one paying the fine to the IRS for corruption?
glenn

7 days ago
PPO…earlier tonight I was writing about helping a family in a similar space and place.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
So, sorry I can’t contribute anything this week
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
understandable P.
KillgoreTrout

Glenn….academics can be every bit as nutty self righteous as those on the right.
MurphTheSurf3

Oh, ok, Murph. If I get the chance, I’ll check it out
pinkpantheroz

PPO – Really?! That lousy rehab joint? She needs care now…maybe a lawyer later.
AdLib 7 days ago
PPO–your just being here is fine. You need to take of your Fergie.
