• AdLib : Thanks Sally! I’ll get the bowls of peanuts!

  • SallyT : Night Murph. I’ll get the lights, AdLib.

  • AdLib : Night Murph!

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Good night.

  • AdLib : Murph – Very Interesting. Though I would like them to do so to mess up the Repubs, I would do the same if the tables were turned and the Dems did that to the candidate I supported.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Sally and Ad Lib, closing Vox together….cool …first time.

  • AdLib : Okay Sally, thanks again for closing Vox Populi with me! Have a great weekend and rest up, we’ve got a big week ahead with the Repub convention!

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Ad Lib and all of the Birthday Partiers…the initial response to the Paulie Video is NOT good….these focus are passionate and smart…they are being played and they may be slow to adapt to the game but there is word on line of a very vocal walkout when it plays.

  • AdLib : Sally – As I was mentioning to Murph about that bogus predictive model on who will win, sometimes it’s best to counter lies without repeating them, just affirmatively responding with positive info that buries the lies.

  • SallyT : Well, AdLib, I think I will have to call it a night, too.

  • SallyT : KQ, ice cream and cake to you! Have a great BD weekend. Think good thoughts!

  • SallyT : Right, AdLib. I don’t want their lie to be all that is heard. It is negative. I want us to put the positive to the comment and how it was intended. I think that will get real cheers from us as their lie will get from their crowd.

  • AdLib : Murph – If I was a Paulite, I would be incensed and furious. And those types are far more emotive in those areas than me. Hmm…I wonder if they will react or just roll over on this because that’s what Paul wants them to do.

  • AdLib : Then a very happy birthday to you, KQ! Have a wonderful birthday weekend!

  • AdLib : Sally – I will guarantee you that the theme of respect for working people and economic fairness and justice will be a big theme at the Dem convention. Along with what government does to help all of us, Medicare, SS, infrastructure, etc. Repubs run on how horrible gov’t is, Dems will run on how it helps and supports our society.

  • SallyT : Murph, I guess that depends on the tribute. It could just add gas to the fire, if there is one.

  • KQµårk 死神 : Ok last call time for me to hit the hay too.

  • KQµårk 死神 : You know me I roll the best I can. The wifey’s asleep so I got to play a bit.

  • SallyT : And, infrastructure helps businesses get going and keeps them growing.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : BACK for a MOMENT…..just got an email…there is going to be a video tribute to Ron Paul….and no platform for him….talk about tokenism and pandering. Will the innocents buy it?

  • SallyT : AdLib, it not about that, its about putting the truth ahead of the platform that the Repugs are pushing. Showing that we are concerned about business and its employees. And, those that aren’t working, too. Those we want to help find work.

  • AdLib : Roll with it, my friend. It’s still your birthday, a great hotel and someone special to celebrate it with, yes?

  • KQµårk 死神 : My body feels 80. We’re at a beautiful hotel in downtown atlanta but I can’t even drink a nice glass of wine with my new found diabetes

  • AdLib : 50 is the new 35.

  • SallyT : 50 is young, KQ!

  • AdLib : HAPPY BIRTHDAY KQUARK!!!

  • AdLib : Sally – But employees of companies don’t feel outrage at the idea of government helping their business. Only egotistical jerks do.

  • KQµårk 死神 : Ugh I just turned 50

  • SallyT : I am right behind you KQ. You have a good night.

  • SallyT : Still, AdLib, I hope they cover it because many employees work for small companies. And, the elderly do vote for the Democrats and especially for Medicare and SS concerns.

  • AdLib : Night KQ! Sleep well and have a relaxing weekend!

  • KQµårk 死神 : Night folks

  • AdLib : Sally, the elderly skew Repub so if less elderly vote, Repubs are more hurt than Dems.

  • SallyT : KQ, that is another concern of mine. Some of the elderly might not care to get involved with the hassle and the young won’t have time for it.

  • AdLib : Sally – I think the “We Did Build It” BS is only good for getting cheers from their base. I don’t think it is very resonant or meaningful to the majority of voters because they’re employees and wouldn’t be outraged about government helping them.

  • SallyT : The Repugs are going to have a whole night on “We Did Build It” or something like that. I hope the Dems cover that in their convention and show the truth.

  • KQµårk 死神 : Exactly Sally and it’s not that the hurdles are impossible to vote but how many unenthusiastic dems will even bother to jump them.

  • AdLib : Sally – It’s a big concern. Just glad that the lawsuits and DoJ actions are underway now, not happening after the fact. Meanwhile, the Dems are pursuing a secondary track of trying to help people get IDs in case the lawsuits are blocked.

  • AdLib : Cheers Murph!
