• Chernynkaya : See you on the thread.
  • AdLib : Cheers Patsy!

  • PatsyT : Another Great Vox Populi Thanks all !!

  • AdLib : Looks like we’ve reached the end of tonight’s edition of Vox Populi. Thank you all for being a part of it, a lot of fun and some interesting ideas. The chat can continue at the AfterChat article, click this link to go there: «link»

  • Blues Tiger : I think it got overshadowed quickly by Utahs abortion crap

  • PatsyT : Give Bloom energy a goggle lots of info there

  • PatsyT : OK well then I will have to go back in history and push those buttons

  • AdLib : Duh!

  • AdLib : OH!!! I saw that, I was thinking it was some investment group or think tank like the ones we were discussing!

  • Blues Tiger : Dang AdLib I posted a link and announced It’s Bloom Box Day the other day

  • AdLib : Patsy – It was 1 or 2 weeks ago, you were “on”.

  • AdLib : Bloom box?

  • Blues Tiger : I am trying to keep up on the Bloom Box Patsy…

  • Chernynkaya : Nothing Patsy. Just the idea of comedy wins. Unions. Health care ins. the whole thing. Oh, too hard in this format! :lol:

  • PatsyT : Bloom box that is one to follow …

  • PatsyT : What did I say that was so funny ??

  • PatsyT : I have ideas when do you guys want to take it to the next step?

  • Chernynkaya : Right– forgot about independently wealthy nellie. ;-)

  • Blues Tiger : What is the name of the Guy who first funded Google ,E-Bay and the Bloom Box? He might be someone who would invest…

  • PatsyT : Nellie where for art thou ?

  • AdLib : Hey, maybe Nellie can finance this, I hear her website is worth $125 million!

  • Chernynkaya : Thanks Pats I always go for comedy!! Can’;t you tell?

  • PatsyT : You know you can make a down and dirty vid and get all the street cred if it is hitting home you do not need a big backing at least to start with

  • Chernynkaya : Yes–mmentioned him below– and david geffin– into medicine. Do a search Chronicle of Philanthropy to start.

  • AdLib : Patsy! You make me laugh and I’m a tough audience!

  • AdLib : Maybe someone like Soros would be a good candidate?

  • PatsyT : Sorry for the tease Cher I can not make comedy win BUT a Well placed presence that is funny will travel

  • Chernynkaya : AdLib– YES. Davos and all those think tank places. Aspen Institute etc.

  • AdLib : Patsy – Laughter is the best medicine…and sometimes the only kind cover by your health plan.

  • AdLib : Cher – Just saw a thing on 60 Minutes a week or so ago about Davos, they invited people who have great ideas for businesses. Maybe next year, Davos?

  • Chernynkaya : PAtsy– please elaborate. I want comedy to win, I think. do I?

  • PatsyT : Comedy wins then !

  • AdLib : Cher – Exactly! Like charter schools, private non-profit companies doing what Medicare or SS might do and being subsidized as Medicare Advantage was designed. Just add in their ability to take on everyone.

  • Chernynkaya : Adlib– seriously dude. You should write to some leftie philanthropist– david geffin or soros and present that idea. or Trumpke– and C’lady!

  • AdLib : Patsy – It would be so funny! And Dems couldn’t turn down subsidizing the unions, they’d be scared not to!

  • PatsyT : AdLib a few well placed Ideas can go a long way

  • Chernynkaya : Yes– govt subsidies. but your idea is really very big. I mean it. like private schools in a way. And what else? You can make abortions available if you don’t take govt funds. A small point, but still…

  • AdLib : Cher – Can’t help it, my approach is that if you hit an obstacle, accept it and find another way to your goal. If Dems are terrified of voting for a Public Option, do an end run and simply provide subsidies for “private businsess” which Repubs claim to support.

  • Blues Tiger : I wonder if Co-Op healt care is feasible

  • PatsyT : Ohh lets freak them out – – run by UNIONS !!

  • Chernynkaya : Oh–you are righT Adlib, i know. Just sayin’.

  • Blues Tiger : My better have is planning on buying the pink and black Sig 22 next couple of weeks

  • AdLib : Cher – SO, why not have private non-profits start up…that then get subsidies from the government and become de facto Public Options paid for by the government, without being technically government run?

  • Chernynkaya : ADLIB — that’s what made me write ass– I knew it!!

  • PatsyT : Tiger I was quoting the Gary Oldman line for Batman “I gotta get me one of those”

  • AdLib : Patsy – We look to government to do things but it’s thinking outside of the box to consider what resources exist to accomplish the same goal.

  • Chernynkaya : But it may come to that.
