I was wondering if something was up. You were asked about last week here.
AdLib 7 days ago
How are you feeling now?
AdLib 7 days ago
I had the worst reaction I have ever had to Pollen which became bronchitis and a viral infection….sick, sick, sick.
MurphTheSurf3

Sounds horrible!
AdLib 7 days ago
Are you over the infection?
AdLib 7 days ago
Recovering is the best word. Slow….I am close to giving up on a planting season this year.

The infection lingers per blood tests….

Murph–Since I hadn’t seen you on the Planet for a while, I had asked Ad about you last week. I am so sorry to hear you may not be able to do your planting. I know how much you love your plantings!

I see so much vitriol from both sides,it starts to seem the same.I was under the impression that progressives were better than the right when it came to civility. I think it is fine to disagree with Hillary Clinton without demonizing her.But many here “HATE HER,AND WILL NEVER VOTE FOR HER!! The unflattering photos and the utter contempt.Remember that the progressive movement is just that,progressive. What Bernie is asking for is radical change.That is cool,IMO Hillary will govern more to the left than you think.But change comes slowly in America. I could be wrong….?

glenn – It’s not a new login, you accidentally logged in as “glen” missing the “n” so our anti-spam software did the double check. Won’t happen again. BTW, I know this only because the system notifies me when there’s a failed login.
AdLib 7 days ago
Glad to hear it was smooth getting on Vox tonight, Murph!
AdLib 7 days ago
I do love it, Glenn. I may be just doing ornamentals this year but the doctors have not cleared me for outside work at all.

Good Friday evening fellow Planeteers! Hope your week has gone well.

Beatlex – I spent part of the day on a pro-Hillary site and found the same kind of heated rhetoric against Bernie and his supporters as I have seen on some pro-Bernie sites. As you say, it is identical in-fighting on both sides. Unfortunately, it’s to be expected and far from unusual. I do think that as usual, the hostility will subside once the GE gets going.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey Kes! Hey Bealtex!
glenn

7 days ago
Hey Kes! Hope all is well with you!
AdLib 7 days ago
glenn – Not at all, even I make mistakes on logins! And we are definitely not like Repubs because we admit them and learn from them.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey, glenn! AdLib and all! Springtime in Ohio. I had gotten some tree saplings for my son (his request) and put them in individual pots outside: cherry, apricot, blueberry, elderberry and red currant. They’re doing great!

Beatlex–I agree with you about the so-called progressives who say they will never vote for Hillary. I do think a lot of them are millenials who just haven’t been around long enough to understand what a disaster trump or cruz would be. I’m not trying to be condescending; but I think a lot of people will come around when November rolls around.

The politics of emotional contention is on all sides……and the no-info, low-info, false-info culture of so many voters uses that in place of substance…It is a perfect formula for the kind of interaction we see now.
MurphTheSurf3

I expect Bernie will follow through on his promise not to run on a 3rd party ticket and will endorse Clinton. That will prove his integrity and a lot of folks will take their cue from that.
kesmarn

I was at the doctors office….actually there a lot….and I got pulled into a discussion about what Sanders supporters should do….My response was simple: decide who you do not want to be President and do what you have to to make sure that does not happen.

Kes – How cool!!! My small “crops would compliment yours. Have growing a variety of tomatoes, corn, beans, peas, broccoli, onions and more! Small amounts of each but love fresh veggies! And the artichokes are coming up!
AdLib 7 days ago
Of course, Boehner is predicting that Joe Biden will parachute in at the last minute and take the nom… with Obama’s blessing. Hmmmm…. is it the Merlot?
kesmarn

Wow! AdLib what a great garden! We have some tomato seedlings coming up too here.

Kes, Bernie has made several very straightforward statements that whoever wins the nomination will be supported by the other and that he will work as hard for her and he would expect her to work for him.

Ad…I am envious.
MurphTheSurf3

Murph–the anonymity of the internet doesn’t help as far as civility goes, either.
glenn

7 days ago
Yes, Murph, one of the things I admire about Bernie is that he seems to be a man of his word. And he really has transformed the conversation in this campaign.
kesmarn

7 days ago
glenn – Yes, what many don’t recognize is that many of those legit Bernie supporters (excluding the Repub Trolls posing as Bernie supporters) are not Democrats, they are Independents so they may not feel any loyalty to the Dem Party. But I guarantee that there will be very few Bernie supporters not voting Dem in Nov!
AdLib 7 days ago
Glenn…absolutely.
MurphTheSurf3

Ad…I concur with your analysis.

Everyone see how folks out here in Cali are going nuts protesting Trump. He is really hated out here, maybe 70% unfavorable? I don’t like the violence though, it does show how hatred can breed hatred.
AdLib 7 days ago
Kes–I hope you’re right. We don’t need another third-party disaster like we had with Nader.
glenn

I saw that 17 were arrested in Orange County, AdLib. The man does know how to polarize. Do you all think Hillary will pivot back to the right in the general election campaign?
kesmarn

Murph – It is a natural syndrome that people in both parties are going through. Sometimes it resolves, sometimes it tears the party apart long term. I think Dems will patch things up but Repubs will be torn asunder for some time to come.
AdLib 7 days ago
glenn, a number of his supporters are really hoping he’ll run as an Indie, but I don’t see him breaking his word.
kesmarn

Ad…I am always suspicious of those who turn to violence…..in general in my experience they are opportunists and generic troublemakers….
