• Beatlex : Hi Miles! I heard the “POP”!
  • MilesLong : Test

  • Beatlex : You too AdLib!

  • AdLib : Have to agree Beatlex, loved that smug Cantor’s smackdown! Have a great weekend!

  • Beatlex : I have been watching hockey…I am Canadian after all.The Eric Cantor smack down was the best thing I have seen in a long time.It did not wipe the smug grin from his face though.Buh Bye Eric!!

  • Fergie1 : Well, although I didn’t contribute much, I’m glad that I came to the party. I’ll read more further down at my leisure later on our time. Nite Miles, Harleigh and Ad! Have a lovely weekend friends! Oh yes, and Happy Fathers’s Day to all the Dads. Byee.

  • AdLib : Night Harleigh! Have a great weekend!

  • Harleigh : nite all

  • AdLib : Night Miles, have a great weekend!

  • Harleigh : Pakistan is the place to watch… 200+ nukes and delivery systems.

  • MilesLong : Okay, then. Good night, all…

  • AdLib : Well, I guess it’s that time, to close the Vox bar for the night. Thanks all for a real rousing Vox! Have a great weekend and a happy Father’s Day!

  • AdLib : Night PPO, have a great weekend!

  • Harleigh : nite pink, nice nighty! LOL j/k

  • MilesLong : Nite, Pink…

  • pinkpantheroz : Time for me to sign out and actually get something done today! Thanks everybody for a great Vox and it’s good to see the new bloods joining the debate. See you all at the Weekend Music thread.

  • MilesLong : Besides, since Karzai gave the US a rousing Fuck You, President Obama has basically told Iraq to go screw itself. So, the US playing hardliner is a natural.

  • Harleigh : miles – Of course we did, along with other intel agencies in Europe and certainly Israel. I mean c’mon, We ain’t talkin the Bundy Ranch with redneck baggers with some guns here. LOL

  • pinkpantheroz : Harleigh, thats the problem with getting re-involved with this Middle east crisis. We don’t for sure know who is who, and who backs them. And, to be honest, the US wouldn’t normally give a shit about some civil-war riddled Arab country if it weren’t for the OIL. Betcha the Oil and Armament lobbies are screaming their heads off at the WH to DO SOMETHING! But I hope that the US stays out of it for so many reasons.

  • AdLib : Good point Harleigh. Maybe the US did know though. But what would we do if we knew about it ahead of time? And what if our intelligence agencies saw an advantage in this?

  • MilesLong : Maybe we did, Harleigh… {grin}

  • Harleigh : I still have not seen or even heard a definitive answer anywhere about how we did not know about a large trained group called ISIS, all newly equipped, matching black outfits, shiny new guns, lots of yellow PU trucks outfitted with large caliber automatic big guns, rockets, mortars and all that training and communications.. . SURPRISE! uh we just conquered your broken country!

  • Fergie1 : PPO :lol: :lol: :lol: Truth!

  • pinkpantheroz : I need to get some and try that. Thanks, Miles.

  • AdLib : Good point, Fergie!

  • MilesLong : PPO: Also, there’s usually a service manual online in PDF format that will show you how to open a laptop up to clean or replace a part.

  • pinkpantheroz : No miles, sounds a bit painful!

  • pinkpantheroz : Early days, fergie, early days!

  • Fergie1 : Hey Ad, maybe we should be thankful that it’s only coffee PPO is having!

  • MilesLong : PPO: Have you ever shot some compressed air into the vents?

  • pinkpantheroz : Miles, can you do that to a laptop? My fan is working more and more.

  • Fergie1 : PPO – the tyranny of distance and the folks who need their zzzz’s unless they are on the West Coast!

  • MilesLong : I just took mine apart to clean it Saturday. It was way past time.

  • pinkpantheroz : Yes, Ad, lesson learned. I also learned a lesson about coffee and keyboards. They don’t mix!

  • MilesLong : Sneeze, and you miss something…

  • AdLib : ppo – Hope you’ve learned your lesson, no coffee during Vox. ;-)

  • AdLib : Thanks Kes, have opened it in a window to read after Vox!

  • pinkpantheroz : Gosh! You go for a coffee and everyone chuffs off. was it something I said?

  • MilesLong : Nite, Kes…

  • AdLib : Night Kes, have a wonderful weekend!

  • kesmarn : And with that, I’ll have to be taking my leave too, dear friends. Have a great weekend, everyone!

  • AdLib : glenn – Please feel free to contact me, always happy to help and looking forward to it!

  • kesmarn : This is the link to the article on the bank robbery: «link»

  • AdLib : Night see! Have a great weekend!

  • kesmarn : Please do write that article, glenn!

  • AdLib : glenn – Yes, I assumed so. I’d really enjoy reading about that era in Iran from a first hand experience.

  • glenn : Good night, all! Ad, I will read the instructions on how to write a post, but I still may be emailing you if I run into problems. G’night.

  • kesmarn : G’night to all departing Planeteers! I was searching for that article and missed a few as they were leaving!

  • glenn : Funk–good night. I’m right behind you. Wish I could be right behind you in getting cheeseburgers and ice cream, too. Enjoy!

  • funksands : Night See

  • funksands : Fergie good, its probably not the sulfites giving the headaches then

  • seehowtheyrun : Goodnight FS. Goodnight everyone. I’m out too.
