• AdLib : Righty-O! You take care of yourself!
  • choicelady : AdLib – I totally agree. I know the Oxy takes the “burn” away and that’s a lot of help. In these circumstances, “Just say Yes!” G’night dear friend. Talk with you soon.

  • AdLib : Night Choicelady, sending my healing thoughts to you!!!

  • AdLib : I suppose that if you’re not in pain and take Oxy to feel good, it can feel good at the time but like all painkillers, you wake up the next morning with a head full of fuzzy cotton and are somewhat useless. Not a desirable way for someone who wants to live a life to burn through their days. However, I am a strong believer in using pain medication when in pain, people shouldn’t suffer unnecessarily.

  • choicelady : I see food, funk, and KQ on line – hi guys. I think I’m signing off for now. Hope to be more sprightly next week! ‘Night all!

  • choicelady : AdLib – hmmmm. Never underestimate the power of mothers. Mine was always pissed she had a 6-hour labor with both me and my brother. Never could guilt trip us. Your mother may have nothing wrong at all – but you FELL for it. But now, don’t you feel virtuous? A Good Son and all that? Never mind the reason.

  • choicelady : LOL!!! I should probably get in MY jammies, take another “Rushie” and hit the hay. I can’t see the big attraction for Oxy since it merely takes the edge off and then leaves me loggy the next day. I’m not getting a lot of work done – muzzy minded is not a good state! Why would ANYONE get hooked on this stuff? It isn’t any good?

  • AdLib : Unless it was all just a clever ruse to get me to lift heavy things for her most of my childhood!

  • choicelady : Well your mother probably got into the hands of someone whose knowledge was still pretty limited. That’s a damned shame. The whole practice has come a long, long way since the 60s.

  • AdLib : “Here’s Godiva but with her pajamas on!”

  • choicelady : Oh I love Lydia, dear darling Lydia, Lydia the TAT-tooed lady! One of my faves!

  • AdLib : I’m surprised at how genuine it is after hearing all kinds of discounting about it and my mother’s experience. Now, I swear by it.

  • AdLib : Then do you know how to sing this: «link»

  • choicelady : AdLib – oh wow I am so sorry for your mother! That’s awful! But the art has come a very long way over the years, and I love my chiropractor with whom I’d worked a lot on GLBT justice issues here. He’s been wonderful to me and for me.

  • AdLib : My mother had a bad experience with a chiropractor who ruined her back for good when I was a kid. So I was very wary about them but my wife found a fantastic guy who worked on an Olympics team as a trainer/therapis t and he rescued me from some pretty bad injuries.

  • choicelady : AL – NO! I don’t want my spine to fly! Not yet!!! I just want what I think is a pinched nerve to UNpinch. I walk like Groucho when it gets bad and that, as you can imagine, is NOT the look I’m going for!

  • choicelady : AL – I love mine. I feel better in a lot of ways thanks to him. The pain meds help take the edge off, but around 3 every afternoon it all wears off, and it’s still agony. But the chiropractor is clearly making it better as it gets less and less awful. It’s especially important in the “tense up in reaction” prevention. I try not to limp, but one does, and he keeps things from getting worse.

  • AdLib : Hope the MRI helps figure out a swift path to recovery! That’s great news about HOPE, look forward to your update on it. And tell your spine I’m pissed off at it and it better straighten up and fly right!

  • choicelady : AdLib – I may have some news soon about HOPE. Had dinner with a staff person who LOVED the idea and works for someone who might be very interested. Just too bummed this week to do anything about it. Next week for sure – luckily said staffer is a longtime friend. I’ll keep you posted.

  • AdLib : CL – Damn! I’m sure you get all kinds of advice but I had an amazing chiropractor who solved some serious alignment issues.

  • choicelady : AdLib – that’s always been one of my faves! Good way to toddle off to bed, even without one more for the road!

  • choicelady : AdLib – no, not a lot. Chiroprator helps. Drugs do NOT, at least not reliably. I’m all “Rushed up” and can’t see why this stuff is popular. It does very little good. MRI Monday, so I should know what’s going on. But I think it’s wait and let it heal. Bummer.

  • AdLib : This was a reply video to Patsy but you’ll appreciate it: «link»

  • AdLib : Not at all, missed you!

  • choicelady : Hi AdLib – sorry to come in right at the end! Talk with you soon!

  • AdLib : Are you feeling any better?

  • AdLib : Hey CL!

  • choicelady : Well hello, goodbye! I hope to catch everyone next week, out of pain and raring to go!

  • choicelady : Hi everyone – just dropped in during a “Rush” moment to say howdy to all! Sorry to be such a dud, but the hip is hurtin’ again!

  • PatsyT : Nighty Night «link»

  • AdLib : Well Patsy, looks like it’s time to bring tonight’s edition of Vox Populi to a close. Thanks to all for a rousing discussion! See you next week. Night Patsy!

  • AdLib : Patsy – True insanity in the aftermath of Japan’s disaster but if Repubs were to win, you can bet that billions for energy company cronies to build nuclear reactors will be carved out of social programs. Man, there will be a huge list of really scary reasons not to let Repubs get back into power!

  • PatsyT : Yes, I hear it on Nuclear sites at times, I am waiting for which one the repubs wind up with to tell them you will have the MIC and the Nuclear Industry calling the shots with them. At least with President Obama there is a some slow down of the industry.

  • AdLib : Night Murph!

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Ok. Cut and pasted that memorable Moore jump the shark quote into my archive and I am off…for sure.

  • AdLib : The RW does have Baggers attacking moderate Repubs, the few that are left, but otherwise, they have lock step, mindless drones marching to whatever tune they play. It sucks not having a fascist core to our party!

  • AdLib : And the drag is that many well meaning Progressives see people like Moore and Nader and Huffington and Kucinich and West, etc. as legit and echo their attacks on Obama and Progressives.

  • PatsyT : AdLib… I really want him to get healthy and think… He can do it if he wants to.

  • AdLib : Patsy – Moore is on his own side and back. He can’t help it, his mass just shifts that way.

  • AdLib : This is what’s so messed up, you have the establishment “renegades” on the Left who make a profession out of being renegades and then when the opportunity comes to accomplish something…but it would disempower them…they turn around and try to sabotage progress to protect their position and meal ticket. The Firebagger Story.

  • PatsyT : Hmmm AdLib you have a great point there and he has a lot of side

  • funksands : Ad, thanks for digging that up. Really. I gotta go folks! Goodnight and keep up the good fight. It will never end.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : AsLib…so glad I am not going mad….although some would dispute that.

  • AdLib : Patsy – Moore is on Moore’s side.

  • AdLib : Heh! Cheers Murph!!!

  • PatsyT : Thanks ALib, Thats it all the subterfuge! I here him loud and clear. Hey Michael, you are either with us or you are against us

  • MurphTheSurf3 : ADLIB FOR BENEVOLENT MONARCH OF THE DATASTREAM! ALL HAIL!!!!

  • AdLib : Link to transcript: «link»

  • MurphTheSurf3 : AdLib…have got a link for Moore on that one? GOOD WORK!

  • AdLib : Here’s the quote: “MOORE: You’ve got these nine Republicans running, all right? And, of course, we all laugh, and there’s the joke about — you can make about each one of them. And we know that our fellow Americans, at the end of the day — they’re not going to go in the voting booth and vote for crazy. Even though they might be upset at Obama, they’re not going to go crazy. So, it begs the question then. If this is the party of the rich — the Republicans — if this is the party of wealth and Wall Street, the party that brought about the crash of ’08, why don’t the wealthy — why aren’t the wealthy — making sure they have a Republican that’s running that’s gonna win? It doesn’t look like they’re concerned at all about making sure they’ve their man on the Republican ticket unless — unless they believe they’ve got their man on the Democratic Party ticket?”

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Patsy….I guess that excuse beats “I have to wash my hair”….by about 20,000 miles.

  • AdLib : October 27th, 2011 – Michael Moore on KO…

  • PatsyT : Well It was that or I have to go get my nails done

  • funksands : Patsy, that’s a pretty flimsy excuse. ;-)

  • PatsyT : Well the volunteer organizers for President Obama have been calling me and I have told them I am a little busy trying to get this Nuclear Waste Generating Station shut down, so I will not have as much time as I did before but I will vote for him, of course.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Sabreen….all I need another crusade but I will add it to my list. Calls to make on Monday.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Ad Lib….the Sherlock Holmes of data digging. Got that quote in my craw now….

  • PatsyT : OK Sabreen, Now back to bed with you!

  • funksands : Thanks Sabreen, Microsoft is a whole different company than it was even 10 years ago.

  • Sabreen60 : Good Night for real this time.
