I wonder if many of the Obama voters who voted for Trump are addicted to the rush of waking up each morning to see if the country has blown up?
AdLib an hour ago
Absolutely!

Hey Ad–You can now call me Mimi The Great! My great grandson was born this week! 7lbs. 11 ozs., and he’s adorable!

In a normal reality, Trump’s polling numbers should be down in the 20s or below.

WOW!!! Congrats Mimi!!! That’s wonderful\!!!

Ad–In a normal reality, trump shouldn’t be occupying the oval office.

Thanks, guys. It was difficult waiting for the news and pictures; he was born in Florida. But it was a scheduled C-section, so he was pretty much “on time”.

Well, I can understand how having the FBI and Russia teaming up against a candidate who’s in a tight race could get Trump elected. But this slimeball says and does the most horrible things and the racists and extramists supporting him just applaud.
AdLib an hour ago
glenn – Glad to hear all went as planned! Even so, I know it’s stressful, so wonderful when it’s all done and you’ve got a beautiful grandson there!

All the Gop squabbling is gold for Dems , if only they take advantage and stop infighting. The only thing that can defeat Dems is Dems

Ad–some of them are having second thoughts. Just read an article about a place in TN that had an ICE raid, and now some of them are saying they “don’t understand” the immigration system. DUH!

My top wish right now is that NY AG Schneiderman gets that bill passed to insure that he can prosecute any charges against Trump and his crime family no matter what happens federally. Take the obstruction and pardons out of Trump’s hands and Trump goes down.

Ad–yeah, there’s always a slight risk with any pregnancy, but my granddaughter came through it like a trooper!

great news, glenn. A huge relief, no doubt!
pinkpantheroz

Ad–“Some people are saying” that even though the charges are in NY, they are in a FEDERAL court in NY, so the person occupying the oval office may get away with the pardons, and there is nothing Schneiderman can do about them.

PPO – My impression is that those voting for Dems are less about the internal issues between Progressives and Establishment Dems, less about party than about issues and fighting against Trump. I am a bit annoyed about all the games the Estab Dems are playing right now to be in control when Dems win in Nov though. The last thing Dems need is to go back to corproate Dem mentalities.
AdLib an hour ago
My top wish is that Dems sweep the House and Senate and impeach the person occupying the oval office. Can TPOTOO pardon people before Mueller brings charges?
glenn

an hour ago
glenn – Yes, read that article too and I know that most polls show Dem candidates doing incredibly well…looks like a Dem may win Flake’s seat in AZ! Though, why is Trump as high as 40% in polls if Repubs are only around 35% of voters? What about that 5%?\
AdLib an hour ago
Hey Murph!
AdLib an hour ago
glenn – All the best to your daughter, hubby and baby boy too! She did great!
AdLib an hour ago
Ad–that 5% may be “independents”; although I suspect it’s people who don’t want to admit they’re repubs.

Glenn….GREAT Grandson….GREAT! GREAT! GREAT!

But I agree with you; how in the hell can the person occupying the oval office be polling at 40%?
glenn

Hey Murph–Thanks!
glenn

HELLO….Glenn, Ad, and PPO! read through the conversation so far…you guys are on FIRE!!!!
MurphTheSurf3

glenn – Ignore those people saying that. NY State has many financial laws thanks to Wall Street being there for one thing, and at the bottom of all Trump’s crimes is money. So money laundering, doing business with criminals in Russia, fraud, etc. can all be tried in NY and Trump has his hands dirty with all of these things.

glenn: the type who would go to the opening of an envelope. Proof that 40% of the US population is batshit crazy

Ad–do you think repubs are going to distance themselves from the person occupying the oval office for the midterms?
glenn

an hour ago
Hi murph. High praise indeed! Not worthy!
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
glenn – Dems would need 2/3 of The Senate, even if they’re in power, to remove Trump. But who knows, if Mueller comes out with shocking revelations about Trump and Repubs get drowned in a blue wave this Nov…maybe it could happen.
AdLib an hour ago
PPO–never heard that one before–love it! Yeah, I can’t believe that people still support the moron in the oval office.

One caution: Gerrymander!

BIG THING IN MY WORLD IS A FARMER UPRISING (well, a mini one, but a start) over the decision of the state’s number one commodity broker to issue NO letters of guarantee for the soybean crop, our state’s Number One Export, and most of it goes to China…..fury! Of course, many of the farmers still want to find some way not to blame Trump and cast it on the Dems…not working real well.

Independently ignorant, that is!

The Co-Op which I help found and then was cast out of for being a librul! And then invited back into when necessary work was not being done has had several meetings. They are learning that Brazil has gotten the majority of the contracts. Sorghum is also being hit (our number three crop).

Ad–there are so many strange things swirling around the person occupying the oval office. If he is convicted of financial crimes in NY, can he still continue in office? I wouldn’t put it past him to be convicted and still assert that he should stay in office.

Murph, I’m betting there are some sheepish ( blush: looks in your direction just now. Well, it is tough when the idiot you elected ruins your life.
pinkpantheroz

glenn – I don’t think so, the only thing Repubs can run on is being Trump supporters. If they ran away from Trump but represent Trump having unchecked power if they keep Congress, why would anyone vote for them. My guess is that they need to go down with the Trumptanic…then they’ll start jumping ship…those who are left.
AdLib an hour ago
Murph–that’s what gets me the most about trump cultists. They will tie themselves in knots, lose money, their livelihoods, etc., yet still try to make it not their cultist leader’s fault. How can it be anyone else’s fault when the person occupying the oval office is the one who imposed the tariffs?

I was asked tonight if I had a prejudice against “the President.” I told him that I despised him for what he is doing to our country and its citizens. I judge him by his deeds and they have been almost exclusively despicable. Then I pointed to the lie about renewed middle class prosperity in light of the tariff war he has kicked off and may cost our friends very dearly. He did not reply.

glenn, agree with you. Blind cult followers.

It sure seems easy for the Dem nominee to run in 2020 on supporting law enforcement unlike Trump, supporting health care for all, unlike Trump, defending America from our enemies like Russia unlike Trump, etc. This should be a cakewalk!
AdLib an hour ago
Murph–sounds like your fellow farmers are learning the hard way what a con man trump is.
glenn

Nicely done, Murph. It must be scary now to have backed that particular horse.

All….there is some dawning to be seen among my neighbors but the impulse to defend HIM is overwhelming for most even now.

PPO – The Dems need a landslide to win in gerrymandered districts which is unfair but if they win back state houses in this Blue Tsunami, they can kill a lot of gerrymandering so the playing field is fair once again. Meaning Repubs can’t win.
AdLib an hour ago
Murph, will the realization turn some of them into Blue Voters? Or will they blindly persist in their old ways?
pinkpantheroz

PPO….I hope so but it is a long road to that step.

Keep walking it, Murph!

Ad–Yeah, I didn’t think they’d run from trump, either, but I just wanted your opinion. They can’t whip up the base on taxes any more, or on Obamacare (seems they’ve given up on that), so their new “strategy” is you have to elect repubs to Congress, because if Dems win, they’ll impeach trump! Here’s hoping Dems have the fortitude to do so if they win.
