Before commencement of hostilities, remember I wrote about my dad? Do you know any publishers who might be interested in the fuller version?

I remember your article very well! I don’t really know publishers, sorry, wish I could be mnore help.
AdLib 7 days ago
No problem, I thought, as you write so much and so well, that you might have had something of your own published. Not to worry.

Who do you pick to win each primary/caucus?

I started 10 minutes ago…..it is tricky for me. I have to open the site, log in, go to the vox drop down, have it open, and then refresh the page to get the blue box to appear if all goes well. If it doesn’t I start over beginning with logging out, closing out and clearing the cache. Tonight it only took one try.

Caucuses are a bizarre holdover from town meeting days. Who knows.

Murph – That is a real hassle, wish I could do something to help but like we discussed, it’s an unusual issue on your system. Should be a way to fix it somehow though!
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad…I figured out how to get through it and if it is only me….I shall deal with it. I wonder if others in our community have been frustrated and are not trying any longer?

I don’t mind the caucuses because though they aren’t great democracy, they throow a curve to establishment candidates. They need to be challenged if at a minimum to hone their skills.
AdLib 7 days ago
The caucuses generally represented the quality of organization on the ground. Populist movements throw that out of synch howerver.

Nope, haven’t heard from anyone else that they’ve experienced issues like that. I think this plugin uses Adobe Flash but it may be Java. Have you updated both of those?
AdLib 7 days ago
I have updated. We used to have more regulars….I miss them.

That’s why I kind of like them now but I’d be okay if they were replaced with primaries.

My wife just made me Laugh! I was telling her about Trump and the Pope dooking it out and she said: “Remember, The Pope didn’t get to be where he is by being Mr. Nice Guy!”

Sadly, the primary system is also weird…more and more I regard the American system as a Frankenstein Monster….a serious of stiched together ideas which as a whole create a creature that runs rampant in the streets.

PPO – Heh! He’s tough but he’s the coolest Pope I’ve ever seen.
AdLib 7 days ago
For sure, Ad.

PPO…wife is funny….Media is not. In general the Pope was misquoted and so was the reporter who asked the question. Trump reacted to those media reports. Sensationalism sells and good reporting does not.

Murph – Here in CA, we’ve passed automatic registration which greatly improves the primary system. Now we’ve got to see that spread across the country and under a new Dem SCOTUS, get rid of gerrymandering and repair the Voting Rights Act.

Murph – Do you think it was intentional or sloppy journalism?
AdLib 7 days ago
CA is SOOOO radical…ust ask the GOP.

True, Murph. SC people must be totally confused by all the lies flying around. I’d have to have all the effin’ doorknockers, fliers and robocalls.

Murph – You’d think that voter suppression would be an outrage to all Americans including Repubs who claim to be patriots but it’s all about winning. Hence, Trump.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad…the media is increasingly desperate for readers, listeners, viewers and they do what they must to attract the attention-deficit plagued crowd…so yes,intentional. The Vatican released the transcript that was confirmed by the plane pool within two hours of the report. No corrections of any kind.

I lived in worked in SC during the first Obama campaign…a very nasty state.

Murph, that’s probably why Trump dialled it right back.

PPO – I’ve seen a mix of SC voters that range from the very sharp to the very clueless, just like NH and probably the US as a whole. To thoose oof us who follow things and understand the game, it’s harder to understand those who are so easily manipulated by obvious attempts.
