• AdLib : Cheers Murph!

  • MurphTheSurf3 : AdLib saw your final note and agree

  • AdLib : Murph – Sad but true though as that Citibank memo revealed, the one thing the 1% is fearful of, is that the 99% get pushed too far and all the money they have won’t prevent them from voting out the plutocrats. Sure hope 2012 will at least be a ramp up to that.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Ad Lib….the nature of plutocracy is to use money as both a goal and a tool to the goal. Votes are bought in dozens of ways: media campaigns to inform and misinform, jobs/contracts, underwriting campaigns, the creation of ideal candidates, controlling access to the polls etc. So the 1 percent are dedicate to stealing every election- always have been but there are moments when this is just more transparent and we are just more aware. I hope we are living in such a moment.

  • AdLib : Well, looks like it’s time to close the Vox Populi bar for the night. Thanks to all for making it another great edition! See you next Friday!

  • AdLib : Bourne, very pleased to have you at The Planet! Have a great weekend!

  • AdLib : Murph – No worries, I like the idea but no rush. Great, looking forward to the article! Very timely and looking forward to joining the conversation on that. I do think the SCOTUS will uphold it in the end.

  • BourneID : Thanks Murph. I do. You know how shy I am, but enjoyed. Night AdLib. I’m glad I’m part of the planet.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Time for me to go as well…..Ad Lib I have not forgotten about our Conversation Starter Idea….just have not had the time…know you understand….th is weekend I will take time. I am preparing an article on SCOTUS and ObamaCare. Should have it sometime tomorrow.

  • AdLib : What’s hard for me to fully understand, though I do understand the demographic reason, is how 1% of the country can repress blacks, women, Latinos along with the rest of the 99% of the population…and the Repubs still have a chance to win the White House and Congress. Will it take having a Soviet style state before there is a permanent change in the way the majority acts and thinks or, hopefully, the momentum is building now.

  • AdLib : Night Bourne, was great having you on Vox tonight, hope you enjoyed it and we’ll see you next time!

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Bourne…ya done good…knew you would like it here

  • SallyT : Nice meeting you, Bourne!

  • BourneID : Okay everyone. I had a great time and thanks for inviting me. But I’m thinking it’s time to say goodnight also. Talk to you next week.

  • SallyT : Goodnight Kes and CL! I think I will go, too.

  • choicelady : Murph – thanks, stretching is keeping it as good as it is. Could not function without that! Take care!

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Choice…best to you and your back….I do stretches every morning for half an hour and 15 minutes at night…world of difference…got them from an osteopath

  • AdLib : CL – Always happens, the beer runs out and everyone suddenly remembers they have to get up early the next morning. ;-) Sleep well!

  • choicelady : Goodnight kes – have a lovely weekend. Hope you don’t have to work?

  • choicelady : Murph and Sbreen – have a great weekend. I think I’m packing it in as well – my back is giving me fits today. Need to lie down, and it’s the devil to type that way! G’night everyone!

  • AdLib : Sleep well Kes, glad your computer’s working fine again!

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Sabreen…as always, a great pleasure…take care

  • kesmarn : G’night, Sabreen! And now that the midnight hour is here, I’d better say good night,too. Have a great weekend, everyone!

  • SallyT : Sabreen, you have a good night!

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Bourne…train imagery explanations are up to you to explain or not….PlanetPOV is a free place.

  • choicelady : Night Sue!

  • AdLib : Take care, Sabreen!

  • choicelady : Sue – I am shocked every time someone like Mitt, like GHW Bush, like anyone at all expresses such absolute ignorance about the real world of America and the people who live in it. GHW did himself in having NO idea what a supermarket scanner did. Mitt can’t relate to ANYONE. Un-freaking-beli eveable that they think they’re fit to run the nation when they know nothing of how people live.

  • Sabreen60 : Well, I think it’s time to log off, too. Stay strong, y’all.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Sue-+–make that three…me too

  • BourneID : Murph, hold on. What are you leaving to Bourne? I’m so far behind everyone I don’t know what the H y’all are talking [email protected] Who’s Sab; what does that mean?

  • AdLib : Sue – I second Kes’ props, excellent article!

  • SallyT : Sherlock, elementary my dear. But, I will miss ya until we meet again. Watson.

  • kesmarn : G’night, BFF! Wonderful article this week on the RR in education!

  • AdLib : Night Sue! Have a great weekend!

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Good night Sue….

  • AdLib : kES – :LOL:

  • SueInCa : Well my grandson is wantin to use the pc so nite all have a good evening.

  • BourneID : Choice you are too funny.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Bourne…again, you raised up the image..so I am just being cooperative like always

  • choicelady : AdLib – yes, Rubio’s being Cuban is NOT a help at all, quite the opposite, but how would insulated, gated-comunity, golf club CEOs know anything at all about that?

  • kesmarn : The white men in the GOP think all _______ are alike.

  • SallyT : Goodnight Funk. See you in the woods.

  • BourneID : Murph. you’re determind to keep me on those tracks aren’t you?

  • SueInCa : AL it just makes me furious how they are so damn one dimensional

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Sab…I will leave that to Bourne

  • AdLib : Night Funk! I’ll be sending a Hunger games invite to Greenwald!

  • Sabreen60 : Ok, Murph. What’s up with the choo choo train, man?

  • AdLib : Sue – AB mentioned Rubio too but you are spot on about his having no value in moving the Latino vote to the GOP. That’s the thing about racists like the white men in the GOP, they think all Latinos are alike.

  • SueInCa : funk and CL notice the girl chess piece is bigger? hmmmm

  • funksands : ;-)

  • choicelady : Goodnight funk! Sweet dreams!

  • kesmarn : G’night, funk. Behaaaave yourself!

  • SallyT : Funk, don’t blame that on me!

  • SueInCa : Watson no you don;t
