Hey PPO, For some reason I cannot see the very top of VOX, are you the only one here?

glenn, are you affected or your family, by the storm?
pinkpantheroz

Yes, glenn, you and me are all I see. Ad must have gone walkabout!

PPO–No, we are supposed to get some rain Sunday night, but that’s about it. I am pretty far west in GA; very close to the TN border.
glenn

That must be a relief, g!

Hiya Murph!

I am here too. Hi PPO and Glenn!

Yea, it is. After so many years in FL, avoiding hurricanes, the last thing I wanted to do is have to avoid one in GA!

Hey Murph–how are you?
glenn

I have a sister in SC who lives in Charleston. They evacuated to Colombia and are right in the path of the storm as a result.

Glenn…pretty well esp. after today’s court room developments.

I realise that some folk can’t afford to move, but I get steamed at the fools who are just contrary and put rescuers in danger. Darwin needs them badly!
pinkpantheroz

Murph–Oh no! Hope your sister stays safe.
glenn

Murph–yeah, it seems the dominoes keep falling around the lying bully. Gee, what a shame!
glenn

Glenn….she is with her daughter and son in law and are well away from the river and up on a high hill.
MurphTheSurf3

Ouch, Murph. I hope they make it through without too much damage or injury
pinkpantheroz

PPO–I know. It frosts me too. And, that rescuers try to get them out so early, putting themselves in danger.
glenn

And put all of that up against the comparisons with what little was done in Puerto Rico.
MurphTheSurf3

Murph–that’s good to hear. At first, it seemed this storm was going to be a wind “event”, but now it seems to be more a water event, especially with storm surges.
glenn

Do we think Kavanaugh will get the nod?
pinkpantheroz

Glenn….that is so….water from the sky, water from the ocean meeting in the middle with no where to go.

Hey PPO!

The wind will be a factor as well. The roots of trees will be weakened by the saturATED GROUND

sorry capslock!

PPO–Unfortunately, I think he will. I think these sexual allegations are really not much, considering how long ago they were. I wish the Dems could nail him on perjury, though, but I think they need more documents, which the GOP won’t release, to button down the perjury charges.

hi Ad!

PPO….this whole Kavanaugh business feels strange to me…..from high school….never came up in three previous confirmations….the allegation was in the Dem’s hands in July….I do not know where this can go.

Hey Ad.

Just got off the phone with my friend who is in NC on the coast and rode out the hurricane. He’s and his wife and dog are all good but it was insane.

Hey Murph!

Ad, just had a snark about the contrary fools who wouldn’t leave

BRB, have to refresh my Vox window!
AdLib 4 hours ago
There we go

Ad….I have a sister staying in Columbia SC…..the evacuated from Charleston right into the storm’s path.

Hey Ad–we thought you were on walkabout. Glad to hear your friend is okay.
glenn

Ad, nasty not to be fresh! Fungus yeuch!
pinkpantheroz

My friend just moved there 2 years ago with his wife to retire. He’s a very outdoorsy guy and very smart but he wanted to stay there because he was concerned about how long it would take to get back. He did say he would absolutely never do it again.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Murph–I agree. I think the Dems misplayed this one badly! I think they should keep the pressure on regarding perjury, not these decades-old allegations.
glenn

4 hours ago
Glenn…I am with you on this…
MurphTheSurf3

4 hours ago
right strategy, glenn.
pinkpantheroz

Ad–People don’t understand how powerful hurricanes are, and how scary it is to be in the path of one. I’d rather wait a few days to get back to my house than have to go through one again.
glenn

4 hours ago
I saw moms and others giving their reasons for why they were staying and I would just think, “Idiots!” because I knew a number of people who went through Katrina. And didn’t like the idea of responders risking their lives to rescue them. But my friend was just new to the whole hurricane thing, he didn’t know what he was in for.
AdLib 4 hours ago
such a better idea, glenn. And it keeps First Responders safe as well.
pinkpantheroz

Hey glenn!

Ad, surely he’s seen Al Roker blown off his chubby feet!
pinkpantheroz

Ad–understand what you’re saying about your friend. However, that’s why we have experts; people who have actually been through these things before, and know the damage that can be done. I’m just glad for your friend that he learned his lesson; and didn’t suffer any human loss. You can always replace your property; you can’t replace your life of the lives of your loved ones.

..or the lives of your loved ones. Oops!

Hey, has anyone seen the property list Manafort had to relinquish? How could anyone have that much property – lawfully I mean?
pinkpantheroz

4 hours ago
Kavanaugh may get to do the Clarence Thomas Slither onto the SCOTUS but Dems will pick up a Senate seat in Maine because Susan Collins will have been exposed as a fraud on women’s rights.
AdLib 4 hours ago
PPO–Well, isn’t that the whole point? That he didn’t have that much property, lawfully. I really think his greed did him in; always follow the money!
glenn

4 hours ago
Ad, Collins has a history of doublecrossing her constituents.
pinkpantheroz

4 hours ago
True, glenn. No more ostrich coats for that dude
pinkpantheroz

4 hours ago
Ad–think there are any republicans other than Collins and the one from Alaska (can’t think of her name) that have a chance of voting against K?
glenn

4 hours ago
I was pleased, though surprised, at the Manafort agreement today.
MurphTheSurf3

glenn – So true! Have you been through a hurricane? I literally flew out of New Orleans the day before Katrina, was working there before and after, I don’t take hurricanes lightly, too many stories by people I know about how insane and terrible it can be.
