It’s been another big week with so much to discuss. Jeb Bush’s campaign is hanging up the banner, “MISSION UNACCOMPLISHED”, the people of Cleveland won one step toward justice in the murder of Tamir Rice, the TPP is nearly RIP after losing today, and so much more. Our live chat begins right here at 7:00 pm PDT, hope to see you then!

Hey Ad–did you watch the USA-Sweden soccer game?

No, I missed it. Pretty exciting?
AdLib 7 days ago
Really good! Ended in a tie, but it certainly was exciting to watch! My granddaughter is really into this series.

I figured as much, she loves soccer doesn’t she?
AdLib 7 days ago
Maybe one day…
AdLib 7 days ago
Yes, she does. She’s getting pretty good at it, too. Of course, I may be a little biased, but that’s a grandmother’s privilege!
glenn

Absolutely! Moms and Dads get that privilege too!
AdLib 7 days ago
True dat!

It’s great for kids to have a sport that they enjoy, makes them better people…and keeps them away from trouble when they get older.
AdLib 7 days ago
How old is she again?
AdLib 7 days ago
That’s what my daughter believes too. She’ll be 12 in August, sometimes going on 42!

So, what do you think about jebbie? Is he or isn’t he?
glenn

Cool! My daughter will be 12 next week. They should play soccer together! Except we’re in LA.
AdLib 7 days ago
Yea, that’s a helluva long pass!

I think it’s going to be a long, bumpy road for Jebby and nothing could make me happier. What’s clear is that it was just propaganda when they used to say that he was “the smart one”. He’s a fool in his own way.
AdLib 7 days ago
Perhaps he was just considered the “smart one” in comparison to shrub.

glenn – There’s a mighty low bar on display in the Bush house.
AdLib 7 days ago
Which means that anyone is “smart”. Speaking of smart, did you see the “I Support Law Inforsement” sign?
glenn

Heh! No I missed that! Did you see that a self-described uninvolved party in the pool raid was on Fox News claiming there were no racial slurs made and it turned out her and his family were the ones who did it?

Hey Sabreen!
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–so does that surprise you that a bigot would go on fox and lie?

Hi folks. Not staying. I have to get up almost before dawn to be on time for a morning high school graduation. So I hope the convo is good tonight. Take care and see you the next time.

I’m very pleased that the community in Cleveland brought the murder of Tamir to that judge who quickly agreed there should be a prosecution of the cops. That should put some serious pressure on that ass of a DA.
AdLib 7 days ago
Sabreen–congrats to the grad!

Whoops, she left before I could respond! That was nice of her to pop in and say hey!

And what about the Dems shooting down the TPP today? It ain’t over yet but that was cool! I’m afraid though that they are too willing to bargain to get other things and will approve it next week.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–seems as though the ass of a DA is going to pass the buck on to the grand jury. However, even if the prosecutor doesn’t press too hard for an indictment, the grand jury has to consider what the judge says about the case. I mean, c’mon. pull up, shoot, done!
glenn

Ad–I’m not too sure on the “mechanics” of TPP, but didn’t they just shoot down the “fast track”? Which means, I think, that TPP is still alive, albeit on life support, and has to still get approval from Congress.
glenn

That’s what I’m hoping, that the GJ will be influenced by the judges finding. I do think that like other DAs, this one won’t make a convincing case on purpose to them as he seeks to let the cops off for murder.
AdLib 7 days ago
I just don’t get it, Ad. One would think that prosecutors would want these “rogue” cops out of policing, so these cases don’t keep coming up. However, if the prosecutors keep downplaying the cops’ behaviors, I guess it’s no big deal to them.
glenn

What they shot down was a companion bill that is a “must have” for Dems to approve the TPP if it gets Fast Track. So the TPP would be sunk if that didn’t pass. But Repubs have used a procedural trick to bring it up again for a vote next week. In the meantime, they could horse trade with Dems who might agree in the end. That could be short term gains for long term disaster.
