• AdLib : Night John Bito!

  • bito : Good night, JonBoy.

  • PatsyT : Nighty night All ….

  • AdLib : Well, looks like a good time to wrap tonight’s edition of Vox Populi. Thanks Patsy, Bito, Cher and everyone else for making it another great discussion. Have a great weekend and we’ll see you here next Friday night!

  • bito : Got. Patsy! thanks.

  • bito : Night, Cher.

  • PatsyT : My brother is Buzzyquip

  • PatsyT : Bito .. @buzzyquipsis

  • AdLib : Night Cher! Sleep well!

  • bito : What’s your @ Patsy?

  • AdLib : Night Funk!

  • AdLib : we shall fight on the Twitters, we shall fight on the Facebook pages, we shall fight in the YouTubes and in the Googles, we shall fight in the blogs; we shall never surrender

  • Chernynkaya : Thanks a million Patsy. Well, I’m saying goodnight too! See you tomorrow.

  • bito : Night, funk, Take care.

  • PatsyT : Happy cleaning funk… you are a good one!

  • PatsyT : Cher tweet me and I can help you out there …

  • funksands : Gotta go folks. Wife will be home soon from her gals night out. Still haven’t cleaned the kitchen. Ugh. Goodnight all, Ad, thanks for hosting and Bito thanks for the thankless Twitter slogging that you do.

  • bito : AdLib, yes, most people don’t watch those shows, but they generate the headlines and soundbites,

  • Chernynkaya : I’ll have to find the time to figure FB out.

  • PatsyT : Cher, FB can also be a great tool…

  • bito : If people post a link in a comment, I try to tweet it. I don’t catch everyone, but I try to.

  • funksands : Facebook will also have plenty of complicit foreign members that would be more than happy to assist the Dems to get their message out.

  • Chernynkaya : PAtsy–I think you should write a short post about Twitter. And BTW, I know nothing about FB and am thinking about joining.

  • AdLib : Bito – Saw you post that link on the Sunday shows. No surprise they’ve become a corporate RW echo chamber…and who watches those shows anyway. Maybe they’re just playing to their viewers anyway. Most people don’t watch those shows.

  • funksands : I think Facebook is the place to go. 91% of voters under 30 did not vote in the midterms. If even a third of them show up, this thing is over.

  • Chernynkaya : AL–totally agree. I’m seeing so many videos already. The main challenge will be the media–besides paid ads, the media ignores Dems.

  • AdLib : Patsy – Hope all of our members think of that, if anything happens and you need to get word out to people, tweet our Planet page.

  • bito : Funk, I see their pressers on C-span daily, but just like the Sunday gabbers at a ratio of 4-1 how do they get the news out?

  • AdLib : The MSM won’t be able to silence the message that the Repubs are corrupt pawns of corps as the GE goes on. In debates, campaign commercials, etc., we will see Obama and lots of candidates pounding on this same message. The comeuppance is a coming up.

  • PatsyT : Just a thought but in case of emergency … cell phones will probably not work but twitter should- It helped in the ME

  • Chernynkaya : With Twitter, it’s just one of those things you have to DO to learn. And if you saw how many idiots mastered it–well, trust me–it’s easy.

  • funksands : Like the Jerry Lewis telethon. “And let’s add that zero to the big board….”

  • PatsyT : Bito, maybe not so much the how to but – why

  • AdLib : Funk and Patsy – That would make a great Facebook page!

  • Chernynkaya : Funk– I see those dems on MSNBC all the time saying that–but it reaches maybe 500,000 viewers–maybe 1 million. Peanuts.

  • PatsyT : Funk .. great Idea! That could also be a facebook page

  • bito : I would have a hard time explaining a how to. I read some some info, but just doing it worked for me best.

  • AdLib : Cher – Then we’re on the same page on this re Moore. It is a bit pompous to pass such moral superiority over a nation, as if his opinion is the only one a moral person could have. I do like him and enjoy his films but he can get a bit full of himself at times.

  • funksands : I think a Dem with some balls could run a really brutal ongoing ad campaign. Every time the GOP passes yet another absurd bill (ie anti-gay marraige in DC)a Dem needs to hold a press conference congratulating the GOP on passing their bill and that it “created or saved” zero jobs.

  • PatsyT : Or maybe call it a Twitter ‘Why To’

  • Chernynkaya : AL–That’s what we disagreed about. MM and I.

  • AdLib : Bito – I see the traffic on our Twitter page, the re-tweets of your posts and every day there is a constant flow of new people signing onto our page. You have already created a real success for The Planet and lots of folks out there who enjoy reading our tweets. Well done!

  • Chernynkaya : AL–Pelosi does that–she lists the meaning of the bills and then posts: No jobs bill here.

  • PatsyT : Bito I mean No Way that you are wasting you time

  • PatsyT : Bito NO WAY ! You have done so much with twitter! Maybe we should have a Twitter how to post

  • bito : Yes, Patsy, but it does link to some good articles, no?
