• AdLib : Well, looks like it’s time to wrap this edition of Vox Populi. Since we started early, I think this may have set the record for our longest edition! Thanks to all for a great evening, have a great weekend all and hope to see you here next week!

  • AdLib : Night Kes!!! Have a wonderful weekend!

  • kesmarn : Have a great weekend, all!

  • AdLib : Night Patsy and Oatsy and Paysy! You’re 3 times cleverer than me!

  • kesmarn : Paysy oats, and does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy? I think it’s time for me to go to bed too! G’night all. And yes,Walker will go!

  • AdLib : Anyone want to guess if the Walker recall will succeed?

  • PatsyT : I have to pack it in myself… Love to you all…

  • PatsyT : Nighty Night Emerald!

  • kesmarn : G’night,Em!

  • AdLib : Night Emerald! Lots of fun! Have a great weekend!

  • kesmarn : PAYSY!! I didn’t even notice I typed that! What about Oatsy?

  • PatsyT : Oh yeah Oatsy!

  • kesmarn : Apparently there are all sorts of dirty tricks going on at the Lucas County Board of Elections…comp uter hacking and lawsuits and all.

  • AdLib : I still like Oatsy!

  • PatsyT : What was I last week?

  • Emerald1943 : Hey everyone…it’s after 1am here and I need shut-eye! Thanks for a great discussion tonight! I’ve enjoyed it so much! Wish we could do Vox Populi more than once per week! Have a great night, all!

  • PatsyT : Oh Boy I get another new name !!! Paysy!!

  • kesmarn : Paysy, I’m still a little wary on those machines, but this election was encouraging.

  • AdLib : Em – Yes, Cher’s article did a fantastic job on this! Even so, I can’t relate to the mindset.

  • ChrisR266 : Kes: I think Husted is really trying, I do. But those machines can and have been compromised too easily. I’d rather vote some other way.

  • kesmarn : Oh yes, me too Chris! It was Jen Brunner who cleaned up voting in Ohio. God,she was amazing.

  • ChrisR266 : I see google left bing at home this crawl.

  • ChrisR266 : Kes: I still watch that printout with each vote I cast. The memory runs deep.

  • kesmarn : Chris,I didn’t realize Columbus had had probs with machines not printing. Too bad! Ours seemed to work well.

  • ChrisR266 : We had some problems down here, Kes. Many machines would not print. But no way was anyone going to try to do what they did in 2004–Quinnipiac made sure of that when they released their poll two weeks before the election.

  • PatsyT : That is a bit of hope on the Diabold thing Kes, good to know.

  • kesmarn : Em,I was just typing the same thing. That was a good post!

  • Emerald1943 : Adlib, Cher’s piece was really good to explain this.

  • AdLib : Night Murph! We’ll figure it out!

  • ChrisR266 : Evening, Murph. Nice to talk with you.

  • PatsyT : Nighty Night Murph!

  • AdLib : It amazes me that Repubs clearly demonstrate they only care about the wealthy people and the poor and middle class GOP whites keep voting for their lives to be made worse.

  • Emerald1943 : Murph, good night to you!

  • kesmarn : G’night Murph!

  • ChrisR266 : Right now, it is the Legislature pulling tricks, if tricks are to be pulled, not Kasich. We’ll see how low he lays.

  • kesmarn : One of the other good things about the Ohio results was that it made me a little more at ease about Diebold voting machines and hacking. I think if K-sick could have hacked Issue 2 and gotten away with it he would have. (I mean his people would have.)

  • MurphTheSurf3 : TIME TO SAY GOOD NIGHT. AdLib, get in touch I need to consult with you….vital really.

  • Emerald1943 : Adlib, I figured Kasich would pull some little trick. He is despicable!

  • AdLib : And the recall has started against Walker in WI!

  • ChrisR266 : Kes and Em: Kasich has to decide whether he’s going to distance himself from the state legislature, or throw in with them and their radicalism again. It will be interesting to see if he sides with the people or uses the legislature as a battering ram again.

  • PatsyT : Yuck I’m sick Govvy-Boy?

  • kesmarn : Good to know, Chris! That casts him in a little different light for me. In other words: now I know his heart can be broken. :lol:

  • AdLib : Em and Chris – I read that Kasich and his Repub cronies in the legislature are going to ignore the vote and try to pass many of the provisions of 5 separately. So no, they don’t care what the people want.

  • ChrisR266 : Kes: he surely did/does. Remember, he’s from my parts. He is from Westerville, and talked much around here about those aspirations. I have other ways of knowing this, but too detailed to discuss here. Trust me.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : AdLib…Dole AND 25 other senior GOP all signed on to it. Mandates that were based in privately owned insurance and medical delivery systems…..

  • kesmarn : He’s revving the engines in that bus of his,Em,still planning to run us down.

  • Emerald1943 : Kes, his statement after the returns came in was ridiculous. He gave it all the lip service about “listening to the voters” and all that crap…he didn’t mean a word of it!

  • kesmarn : A Hayseed Poultice.
