Vox Populi, our weekly live chat about the week’s events, begins tonight at 7:00pm PST. Hope to see you then!

I am here early tonight. No crises.
MurphTheSurf3

Well….there are crises but they are not mine….
MurphTheSurf3

Actually they do impact me so they are mine sort of….
MurphTheSurf3

But I can’t do anything about them so……YES, I AM looking at the Stock Market and my portfolio!!!!

Hey all!

Hi murph, Ad

Murph – I moved our retirement savings out of stocks and into bonds as soon as Trump mentioned the tariffs the first time. Not bragging, just saying that Trump is a time bomb and as soon as you hear the ticking of another explosion, it’s time to get out of the way.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Hello Ad and PPO

Haven’t checked – is the Stock Market tanking?
pinkpantheroz

Of course bonds are only as good as the body that backs them….

Trump has destroyed just about everything he’s touched and it was only a matter of time until he wreaked havoc on the stock market. And the employment numbers tanked, were about half of what was projected. The US has lost billions in tourism and thousands of jobs because of Trump. Now tariffs. And the tax cuts will cause a budget crisis next year. The economy will have the rug pulled out from under it by Trump. His next bankruptcy in a series of many.
AdLib 2 hours ago
PPO – Trump has lost so many cabinet members, he seems desperate not to lose Pruitt who is the most corrupt of them all…after Trump.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Ad, what I can’t comprehend is why the GOP is so blinded by the retention of power at all costs, that they can’t see their own destruction by not reeling trump in and sanctioning him.
pinkpantheroz

Repubs are going down even bigger in Nov as they’ve tied themselves like cult members to Trump and Trump is getting buried by his criminal behavior.
AdLib an hour ago
My “estate” manager…..is doing going a good job with the challenges….his summary: “First it was the Trump Bump, and then the Trump Slump, and now the Trump Dump… when do we get to Dump Trump?”
MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago
murph, maybe when the next woman claims a Trump Hump?
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
PPO – My guess is that it’s fear. Fear is one of the few things that can lead to such a sustained subserviency. They are all afraid because Trump is the leader of what is now a GOP cult and staying in office is all that matters to them.
AdLib an hour ago
Murph – Unfortunately, not until 2020. Even if Trump tries to suspend the election which isn’t beyond imagining.
AdLib an hour ago
And he’s followed by Trump Chumps?
AdLib an hour ago
Ah, well, they haven’t much to look forward to then. They have no moral authority whatsoever on any subject, just scorn and derision of their sanctimony and hypocricy
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
PPO – Fear blinds and paralyzes, those seem to be the main traits of all other Repub pols.
AdLib an hour ago
Come the Midterms! Drool! ((evil laugh)))

I think the economy has nowhere to go but down from here anyway. As the deficit skyrockets and all the phony “estimates” of increased tax income from the tax cuts are proven to be lies, the economic hammer is going to come down. Makes it more important to have Dems controlling at least one house of Congress.
AdLib an hour ago
Murph – How are farmers in MO feeling about Trump pushing China to slap tariffs on agricuture exports?
AdLib an hour ago
back! Can anyone reel trump in to at least the ‘do no harm’ setting?
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
Not completely but Dems in Congress can stop legislation and most importantly, tie him up with investigations, prosecutions and even impeachment.
AdLib an hour ago
That’s something, I suppose. Now, if only we could muzzle Hannity!
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
Has anyone had the stomach to watch Roseanne?
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
Hannity might be on Mueller’s radar!
AdLib an hour ago
Ad, so might Murdoch! Wouldn’t that be nice?
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
Apparently, almost half of the audience from the debut bailed on Roseanne. We get enough disgustingness out of Trump, who needs more unnecessary garbage from Roseanne?
AdLib an hour ago
I think most Americans are on overload with the hatefulness of Trump and his followers. Roseanne was a curiosity I think at first but like Trump and Repubs, she will be rejected.
AdLib an hour ago
My thoughts exactly, Ad. No one can out-disgust like SCROTUS.
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
It’s kind of amazing to me, how much horribleness and destruction Trump does week to week and day to day. And Repubs just sit by and nod.
AdLib an hour ago
Why should anyone vote for Repubs in Nov? What do they offer but being lackeys for Trump and smother checks and balances? Who but the minority of Trump supporters would vote for that?
AdLib an hour ago
For the first time, neighbor farmers are rumbling about their discontent….farmers who count on sales overseas and who are being told by the brokers who handle this that they are unable to honor commitments to them because of uncertainty in costs as a result of tariffs are panicking.
MurphTheSurf3

We can’t allow ourselves to become numb and immune to this. This shall never again be tolerated in our ‘Leaders’

Hey CL! How are you feeling?

CL!

Evenin’ everyone! Hope everyone’s well. Hi AdLib – still not so hot, but better than before.

Hi PPO! Hey Murph!
choicelady

an hour ago
I left for a while to handle a call…there is going to be an emergency meeting of my coop with a number of guests tomorrow afternoon to look at how these farmers can get their voices heard.
MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago
glad you’re on the improve, cl. Keep it up!
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
Murph I just saw your comment on farmers. I am sad for them EVEN if they voted for the dude.
choicelady

an hour ago
Murph – It’s really a pity that those farmers, who supported Trump while he campaigned to put tariffs on China, Mexico, etc., couldn’t put aside their hatreds long enough to consider how they would be harmed by what they voted for. It was plain as day.
AdLib an hour ago
Murph – I hope they find a way to survive, but I doubt there’s much wiggle room.
choicelady

an hour ago
HI CL…the advice you gave me a couple of weeks back re message shaping….that you helped me shape has been adopted by the key strategists. Congrats for the consulting.
MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago
Murph, tell all the Trump voters that our thoughts and prayers are with them.
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
Murph! I’m so glad if it helped!!!
choicelady

an hour ago
PPO – LOL! That’s lovely and nasty all rolled into one!
choicelady

an hour ago
PPO….thoughts and prayers…now that is MEAN! Very true but mean!
MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago
CL…thanks to you.
MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago
nyuk nyuk!
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
CL – Glad to hear you’re better but sorry to hear it’s hanging in there!
AdLib an hour ago
PPO – We’ve never met, but you often remind me of a most beloved friend – and the nyuk, nyuk cinched it! First time we met, he was wearing a Stooges tie. I will never forget it.
choicelady

an hour ago
Ad….you said earlier that the power of hate to blind and to deafen should not be underestimated…..the farmers are living the lie and the lie is about to slay them.
MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago
Ad – flu sucks. What can I say? I had the shot, so I probably got off lightly, but I’m just so damned TIRED all the time!
choicelady

an hour ago
CL, PPO, Ad…conversations like this one is what makes the Planet the unique place it is.
MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago
Murph – that’s a powerful observation. I wish this didn’t happen to them, but…
choicelady

an hour ago
PPO – Absolutely! These are all outrages that Trump is committing, along with crimes and we can’t start grading on a curve. Each must be recognized and remembered as horrible.
AdLib an hour ago
CL…I could hear the panic in the voices today….
MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago
Sorry, cl, but I have little time for anyone who voted for hate. All very fine till the manure hits the AirCon,. Then the squealing begins.
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
Murph – did racism play a role in their vote, and if so – exactly what did they THINK was going to happen to them if Hillary won?
choicelady

an hour ago
Oh, cl. Wow. Honored
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
PPO – no reason you should. I’m a corn country gal – born in Nebraska – and have fondness for people there, but you know, you cannot fix stupid.
choicelady

an hour ago
I just got an e mail that several state legislature have been invited but say they will come if there are liberal radicals at the meeting of the association. Since I am going I guess they won’t come.
MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago
CL…..racism…yes, delayed gratification….a vote against Hillary was a kick in Obama’s Ass.
MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago
Murph!!! You are always upright in your demeanor. What cowards those people are!!!
choicelady

an hour ago
Murph – Hatred is corrosive, those who don’t understand that become victims of their own hatred. Trump is the embodiment of that dynamic. Hatred destroys.
AdLib an hour ago
CL…you are good for my confidence. Upright!
MurphTheSurf3

44 minutes ago
Murph – these are the same people (some) you helped get ACA? I seriously cannot wrap my mind around the PushMe PullYou idiocy of some people!
choicelady

44 minutes ago
Ad…hate is corrosive….wonderful/powerful phrase…..I envision eating its way through the guts of those who have swallowed it.
MurphTheSurf3

44 minutes ago
CL – More likely, the shot didn’t cover the strain of flu you got. I heard it was only like 25% effective. They have to guess which strains will be most prevelant in the upcoming Winter, they didn’t guess well this year.
AdLib 43 minutes ago
cl, Selective memory and bias. If it profits you, you can justify anything to yourself, just be ready for the downside when the tornado arrives.
pinkpantheroz

43 minutes ago
Murph – you are the kindest person in your area. You have helped SO MANY people get the services they need, and then the legislators wimp out because YOU might be there asking tough questions? Well they can get off without answering – until the consequences rain down on MO and then what?
choicelady

43 minutes ago
CL….the very same….AND….two of these people have now run afoul of changes in policy that are keeping them from getting the rehab they need.
MurphTheSurf3

43 minutes ago
AdLib – so I got a ‘designer flu’? Well isn’t that special…
choicelady

42 minutes ago
Murph – And it takes folks like the ones here to make the conversations at Vox as special as they are.
AdLib 42 minutes ago
Cl…it is not just me that they dislike…they hate the Co-Op……commie, you know.
MurphTheSurf3

42 minutes ago
Murph – and do the ones not getting rehab GET WHO IS RESPONSIBLE for voting that in??? Oh, why am I asking…
choicelady

42 minutes ago
Thanks Ad….I look forward to Friday and always regret when I cannot be here.
MurphTheSurf3

41 minutes ago
Murph – coops are the backbone of agrarian America. Thinking they’re commie is totally ludicrous.
choicelady

41 minutes ago
CL….they only face up to that cruel reality when they are forced to face it….no one who is denying them care is allowed to indicate in any way that the policy is Trumpian.
MurphTheSurf3

40 minutes ago
PPO – I hope the folks who got deceived are helping ultimately with the Blue Tsunami. They can actually get better help with Dems but will they DO THAT?
choicelady

40 minutes ago
breaking news! Hannity is being accused of sexual harrassment!
pinkpantheroz

40 minutes ago
PPO – OMG – I hadn’t heard a new accusation on good ol’ Hannity!
choicelady

39 minutes ago
Thanks Murph, seems to be more blatant than ever under Trump. Hatred led to his winning and it is destroying everything it touches.
AdLib 39 minutes ago
Co-ops, like Unions, here in Mo. are endangered species.
MurphTheSurf3

Hannity? I thought he was androgynous.
MurphTheSurf3

A former Fox News contributor has accused Sean Hannity of sexual harassment after he invited her back to his hotel room and then never booked her for his show again after she declined.
pinkpantheroz

Murph – I know MO from KC (a little and long ago) and Springfield that is the hub of the Religious Right. I think it’s a lovely state – and horrible at the same time.
choicelady

BRB
choicelady

38 minutes ago
CL – Maybe not designer flu but a flu they didn’t predict would be going around.
AdLib 38 minutes ago
CL…truth…lovely individuals in a culture of anger, and hate.
MurphTheSurf3

38 minutes ago
Same here Murph!
AdLib 38 minutes ago
Murph – I wish the light would come, the shade would rise from them, and they;d get smart!
choicelady

37 minutes ago
Ad – I just know it wasn’t as bad a flu as it could have been, but it’s sucked. Over three weeks, and I’m NOT DONE.
choicelady

36 minutes ago
CL….what has really made that enlightenment difficult is that their for the most part their religious communities have embraced the darkness as light.
MurphTheSurf3

36 minutes ago
cl, just keep in touch with your Doc to ensure you don’t get pneumonia
pinkpantheroz

36 minutes ago
Murph – one of my jobs is fighting the religious right. You remember I was under siege here over that. If I lived there, I’m not sure I’d have done it. Scary people!
choicelady

35 minutes ago
PPO – I will. So far no evidence of it. But I’m not a kid anymore, and…
choicelady

35 minutes ago
Murph, they must be really bewildered with how trump turned out. Must be questioning their faith nd their attitudes to it. Can’t be easy, actually.
pinkpantheroz

34 minutes ago
However, I don’t sympathise one bit!
pinkpantheroz

34 minutes ago
PPO – I doubt they are questioning. Most ultra conservatives are Dominionists, a newish religion c. 1930s that posits that God meant the rich to rule, your personal salvation will lead to riches, and that the ultimate good is power and money. What not to love about Trump?
choicelady

33 minutes ago
CL…flu…..I started down the road……but followed my osteopaths “best defense is a strong offense” strategy: Zinc, astelin, ricola, very hot showers, very hot herbal tea, piles of blankets, tons of water….and it passed in 72 hours.
MurphTheSurf3

33 minutes ago
We said this throughout the campaign, how could these rural Repubs vote for taking away their health care, their income and their business? But Cambridge Analytica figured out that if you got them hateful enough, they would stampede to vote against their own interests. And now the obvious is happening and some are slowly realizing it but as if it’s a surprise.
AdLib 33 minutes ago
Murph – I did much the same, and it did keep it at bay though not entirely.
choicelady

33 minutes ago
Ad – bingo. I think C.A. did a real number on people.
choicelady

33 minutes ago
CL – That’s pretty bad, to last 3 weeks. Just want you to feel better!!!
AdLib 32 minutes ago
PPO…the bewilderment is afoot but just barely…until now when the statements about the Deep State and the Liberal Cabal are soundng very hollow.
MurphTheSurf3

32 minutes ago
Ad – thank you!
choicelady

32 minutes ago
I call on Mark Z to resign. He’s screwed the whole country!
pinkpantheroz

32 minutes ago
PPO – I’m with you. And I want his ill gotten gain distributed to non profits picking up the pieces on health, food security, poverty supports – in other words MINE.
choicelady

31 minutes ago
CL…my osteopath preaches that it is heat that kills viruses and bacteria….everything that can be done to stoke the body’s temp short of 104 degree territory is a good thing.
MurphTheSurf3

PPO Mark Zuckerberg compared with Cook, the Apple CEO makes it clear that Zuck’s leadership sucks!
MurphTheSurf3

29 minutes ago
Murph – long ago a Dr. Ivy posited that one of the reasons cancer increased is our insistence on shutting down fevers. We prevented the body from doing its natural work. Well the only problem with this flu I have? I have SUB normal temps. Been taking hot showers, drinking hot tea, but it’s not the same.
choicelady

29 minutes ago
Mark Z’s excuses are lame. He knew what he was doing.
choicelady

29 minutes ago
CL…AH….Cool Lady runs sub normal temps…..whereas Hot Headed Murphy runs above average….there is no justic..
MurphTheSurf3

28 minutes ago
Murph – LOL!!!
choicelady

28 minutes ago
cl, internal heat needed! Chile, Curries etc..
pinkpantheroz

28 minutes ago
Let’s face it, the less educated and frankly, ignorant are easiest to manipulate. Using their religion, their hatreds and fears against them, they can be stampeded like cattle into the direction those with money and power order. This is why Repubs can be so lockstep and successful some years, Dems don’t operate out of fears and hatreds like that and it’s not elitist to observe the facts, Dems are in more urban areas and are more broadly better educated. Makes a huge difference and explains why Repubs are always trying to decimate schools.
AdLib 28 minutes ago
Your Dr. Ivy sounds like my Dr. Osum.
MurphTheSurf3

28 minutes ago
PPO – had curry tonight, chili yesterday, sweating like a pig, but pretty normal temp no matter what.

Dr. Ivy was ridiculed, but there are peopl taking a fresh look at his work.
choicelady

27 minutes ago
Ad, I generally agree with your observation regarding stampeding the easy to manipulate but, in fairness, I indict the Dems for doing the same with the minority and labor groups that so often, and so blindly punched D without a thought to back the decision.

Breaking the breaking news! Texas GOP Rep Blake Farenthold resigns amid sexual misconduct allegations
pinkpantheroz

26 minutes ago
A friend and I are trying to get Adam Schiff to look at the powerful folks in the religious right as conduits of $$ to and from Russia as part of the mix on the election. We’ve had no word back, but we’re carrying our work to the Committee to Investigate Russia located here in Oakland. Other than pot distributors, who does a bigger cash biz than churches?
choicelady

CL…my doc says that it is better, much better, to let the fever rage (while drinking lots of water to hydrate) unabated by aspirin etc. and to take off work.

They’re all such naughty little boys, those Repubs!
pinkpantheroz

25 minutes ago
Zuckerberg is such an immoral, white collar criminal. His business model is stealing people’s personal information to sell it AND he helped the most evil entities out there including Russians and CA, put Trump in the WH because of course he wanted his tax cuts. Zuckerberg is such a fraud and liar too but his PR has done their job in positioning him as a “good guy”. He’s not. Facebook needs to be broken up.
AdLib 25 minutes ago
PPO – I saw that on Twitter. The announcement came with that awful photo of him in blue jammies and the writer saying he resigned to spend more time in them. Eeeeuuuuwww.
choicelady

PPO – LOL – he’s not NEARLY as genial as AE Neuman!!!
choicelady

24 minutes ago
I am proud to say that I have boycotted Facebook nearly from Day One. I was mocked for my paranoia…the mockers are silent today.
MurphTheSurf3

23 minutes ago
AdLib – it will be very interesting to hear Z’s testimony on how HE, poor thing, was just another VICTIM of Russian perfidy…
choicelady

23 minutes ago
CL…..fever kills ugly things…that is nature’s way which we regularly frustrate…AND higher body temps also trigger additional hormonal, glandular acticity.
MurphTheSurf3

22 minutes ago
Murph – I don’t think they’re equivalent. Minorities are never voting for policies that are anti-minority and labor croups are never voting for policies that are anti-union when they vote Dem. Have they been let down along the way? Yes but that is not the same as voting for someone who tells you upfrint they are going to harm you.
AdLib 22 minutes ago
Murph – I have no personal info on my site, am careful what I say, and keep a tight rein on info. I NEVER go to questionnaires or ads. I think I’m pretty safe, but I think you’re very wise.
choicelady

22 minutes ago
PPO – But when is Farenthold paying back the taxpayers’ money he used to pay his settlement?
AdLib 21 minutes ago
murph, Fergie and I never signed up to FB. She was very perceptive, saying our privacy would be breached despite all the promises. SHe’s so right!
pinkpantheroz

21 minutes ago
Ad – MOST union people went with Hillary though I think the unions themselves did a piss poor job helping her. But mostly no – people who are seriously embattled tend to be more wise than those who aren’t.
choicelady

21 minutes ago
CL – Do ou think Mueller would go after the RR for taking Russian and other foreign money?
AdLib 20 minutes ago
Ad, I hope they deduct it from his final paycheck!
pinkpantheroz

20 minutes ago
Ad….when Obama ran in 2008 one of my favorite question was to ask ardent supporters why they were for Obama…rarely anything substantive but when it came down to their thinking about “the other side” lots of narrative, some truth but often simplistic and overwhelmingly emotional…hate high on the scale….just one example.
MurphTheSurf3

20 minutes ago
Ad – that’s what we’re trying to get someone to do. It is THE most dangerous thing to do.
choicelady

20 minutes ago
CL..Mueller is following every lead…wherever they go…so…
MurphTheSurf3

19 minutes ago
PPO – Farenthold quit when the investigation of his harassment burst wide. I think he thinks by leaving he wont’ HAVE to pay up. WRONG.
choicelady

19 minutes ago
CL – I expect Zuckerberg to duck and weave any responsibillity for all the lies and fraud he and Facebook have been invollved in. He always plays the innocent victim, such BS, he knows exactly what he’s doing when he accepts rubles to put pro-Trump ads on Facebook.
AdLib 18 minutes ago
One of the people on this committee is Panetta whom I slightly know. Another is Rob Reiner with whom I corresponded over a ballot measure. So I have a bit of cred. Let’s see where this goes…

CL….name dropper…..of course I would if I could and you can cuz you are DOER par excellance.
MurphTheSurf3

17 minutes ago
CL – There were some union people, especially in the Rust Belt who voted for Trump…who hates unions but pandered to them. But for the most part, I do think most voted for Hillary and will be a lot more aggressive in voting Dem this year and in 2020.
AdLib 17 minutes ago
CL…Right to Work Legislation was adopted in a CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT….making it very hard to undo….a GOP ploy…and the damage in bargaining was almost immediate.
MurphTheSurf3

Well, folks, time has flown, ans so I gotta go. Great chat this week. See you all.. Take care
pinkpantheroz

PPO…I must join you very soon….wishing you and your love the very best!
MurphTheSurf3

15 minutes ago
Murph – I do know that because I’ve met so many people doing various political things, I can sound like a name dropper, but mostly I enlist them for other causes. But YOU are my hero for knowing and working with PBO!!!
choicelady

15 minutes ago
Murph – No argument that many Obama voters may have been energized just based on his charisma and that he made them feel good. But I doubt any of them disagreed seriously with his policies. Some may have just assumed his policies would reflect the thoughtfulness and compassion that projected from him and they were right.
AdLib 14 minutes ago
Take care, PPO – lovely talking with you!
choicelady

14 minutes ago
CL….I ALSO KNOW how much you have done at the grass roots level (where I spend most of my time) but also at the high flying policy making level and that is an inspiration for me.
MurphTheSurf3

13 minutes ago
CL – On the other hand, the RR have so destroyed respect and credibility for themselves. maybe now is the time to strike.
AdLib 13 minutes ago
I think I will fade away, too. I need sleep – had a restless night last night but a grant proposal to start tomorrow. LOVELY to see you all!
choicelady

13 minutes ago
CL…I was very privileged to work for, and a few times with, my President, Barack Obama.
MurphTheSurf3

13 minutes ago
Ad – I do think it’s a door opening against the RR, but it’s still freaking dangerous territory.
choicelady

13 minutes ago
CL – And the ethics hearings were about to begin for Farenthold, I think he wanted to slither out before the public heard all the details on what a sleazebag he is.
AdLib 12 minutes ago
Murph – I KNOW – and I envy your opportunity! He is someone I’d love to meet someday, though I bet I’d burst into tears! He was and is a GOOD person.
choicelady

12 minutes ago
Ad – slither. PERFECT word for him!
choicelady

12 minutes ago
Ad…had they known his policies I suspect that your observation would have played as you say….still Ignorance is NOT bliss…it can easily be a blight.
MurphTheSurf3

12 minutes ago
CL – That is so cool to hear! Panetta I have mixed feelings about but Reiner is fantastic and both names lend a lot of credibility.
AdLib 11 minutes ago
Good night, gentlemen. Always a pleasure. Hope to talk Friday, but it’s grant submission day. I may just go to sleep!

MurphTheSurf3

Good night. CL…Such a genuine joy!
MurphTheSurf3

Night CL, sleep well and get better!
AdLib 10 minutes ago
Well…Ad…it is just us and I need to get on the phone to see about this emergency meeting. Things are heating up….I just heard that the principal soy bean broker in the state has suspended all crop pricing buds “for the time being.” Chaos here.
MurphTheSurf3

Murph, well, I do think there’s a clear difference between not being as informed as one could be when they support a candidate and voting for someone who has explicitly said they will make your life worse.
AdLib 8 minutes ago
This is very bad news, hope farmers of both parties get together and drive their tractors to the WH to stop this growing trade war.

Having lived in Chicago for many years I can attest to many votes by many voters for Alderman, Mayors, etc. whose policies were definitely bad news as their rhetoric pandered to the crowds.
MurphTheSurf3

Can’t disagree about Chicago but very different in much of the Dem states and certainly notin national politics. Can’t think of a Dem president who threatened his voters. Okay, best of luck!
