• AdLib : Night Murph!

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Time for me to call it a night. Early mornings now.

  • AdLib : Sleep well, pal!

  • SmotPoker : OK. Thanks AdLib. We’ll see you around. I’m gonna split as well then.

  • AdLib : Well, guess it’s about that time to close up the Vox bar for the night. Feel good Smot! And thanks to everyone else, another riveting and fun chat!

  • SmotPoker : Night Funk, and thanks.

  • funksands : Night everyone! Smot, hope you see some good signs soon.

  • AdLib : Seeya Funk, hope all’s going well!

  • AdLib : Night glenn!

  • funksands : Yeah, I’m right behind you Glenn. Early morning tomorrow. :-(

  • SmotPoker : See ya next time Glenn

  • SmotPoker : I really know how to bring a party down eh? It’s a gift really…

  • glenn : Okay, folks, my turn to say good night. It’s well past midnight here, and as much as I’m enjoying VOX, it’s time to turn in. Have a great weekend, everyone.

  • choicelady : Murph – I look forward to it!!

  • glenn : Ad-I thought the NAACP guy resigned.

  • funksands : Night CL, take care and don’t be a stranger!

  • choicelady : Thank you all! Good night!

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Nite CL be talking to you soon

  • SmotPoker : It was all about the money. These guys donate tons of cash, and all is forgiven, and they will even give them awards. It’s the never ending story of corruption.

  • funksands : Ad, reminds me of the Newt Gingrich awards that he handed out for years.

  • AdLib : Night CL and thanks for all the wonderful things you do!

  • glenn : G’night CL–Keep up the good work, and thank you for making a difference.

  • choicelady : AdLib – I’d not heard that. Explains quite a lot about the NAACP willingness to honor a slimebag.

  • funksands : I like Rachel a lot, and Chris Hayes was waaaay better on his weekend show, but I hope gets his act together in the evening slot

  • SmotPoker : My mother was always fond of saying that I came out of her an old man. Her way of calling me a cynic I suppose, or just an old angry asshole before my time….Never know with her.

  • AdLib : CL – The president of the LA NAACP was fired today because…he has a history and was disbarred when he was a judge for trading judgements for bribes. So…he is a sleaze who took Sterling bribes to give him an award.

  • choicelady : All – I have to be up early to go to the ‘stake down’ encampment for homeless folks for a meeting on next steps. I’m blasted already- busy day – so I’m bidding you all good night. Take care all and have a wonderful weekend!

  • funksands : Smot, it certainly makes one (more) cynical doesn’t it?

  • glenn : Funk–exactly. The news should be news, not opinion.

  • SmotPoker : The NBA simply had no choice but to shit can his ass. He was going to cost them a lot of $$$$

  • glenn : Smot–I’m with you, although I do check in to Rachel Maddow and if I like what she’s explaining, I stick around. She’s had some really good shows this week on the botched execution in OK.

  • SmotPoker : CL – I know right? It’s been well known for a very long time.

  • SmotPoker : Funk – I think that has a lot to do with my attitude towards the news these days. It’s so much opinion piece rather than strictly the facts. Leaves a bad taste in my mouth when I hear propaganda on a daily basis.

  • choicelady : Murph – that’s pretty much my picks, too.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Who do I watch at MSNBC all the time…..Rachel and Lawrence

  • choicelady : Smot – I cannot understand how NAACP gave him awards. His racism is not new or news.

  • funksands : I think we’d do better to get the “news” to be the “news” again. The truth already has a liberal bias.

  • SmotPoker : Sooooo….Donald Sterling…..Wha t a charmer eh?

  • choicelady : glenn – it sounds wonderful. Especially the NAP part!

  • funksands : Ad, by cracky I think we’ve got a winner!
