Sneaky of those Aussies to schedule election day on Black Friday. Do you get 2 votes for the price of 1?
AdLib a day ago
Thanks for that, Ad. It’s Sat here. and we love the USA, except for when our lot try to duplicate Black Friday here. We don’t have Thanksgiving, they forget!!

I know, just joking. Though the deals are serious business!
AdLib a day ago
For sure, Ad, except they don’t duplicate that here. Much smaller discounts

AdLib a day ago

AdLib a day ago

AdLib a day ago

Maybe Spanky will give me some of that indian land he’s gonna steal.
Harleigh

That would be a nice Thanksgiving!
AdLib a day ago
I cant believe anybody is going along with it.
Harleigh

With what? The only ones who can stop him are Congress and courts.
AdLib a day ago
well I’m falling asleep. Have a great weekend!

And Repubs in Congress would just assume to let the country be torn to the ground than stand against Trump.
AdLib a day ago
Okay, sleep well, thanks for stopping by!

Hard to get around after eating all that stuffing I guess.
AdLib a day ago
Did you have a nice Thanksgiving?
AdLib a day ago
I thought I would see who else might be on the Planet this evening.

If we were having a Black Friday sale on posts, it would be hopping.
AdLib a day ago
I did. I had my usual big gathering- mostly people from the co-op…even though I am no longer a member…apparently it is falling apart.

Things are strange around here now…..the bar I frequent is way down in business.

I’ve heard many are plowing under or letting crops die. And that Trump bribery money is being held up.
AdLib a day ago
There are lots of people hoping to sell crops for pennies on the dollar.

Just being routed to the bigger corparate farms
AdLib a day ago
I though farmers live on a financial edge, how can they get past this season?
AdLib a day ago
The thing here is that there are few corporate farms in the area.
MurphTheSurf3

That’s what I figured, since you have a co-op there. But those Trump billions aren’t available until after crops have been harvested and even then, they’re stingy about paying out. The most anyone could get is 50% of the crop value I think.
AdLib a day ago
Yes, living season to season….I am not sure……as I said the co-op has fallen apart so my info sources have dried up. My business will not be hurt…as long as there is no recession restaurants will still be looking to buy fresh from the garden veggies.
MurphTheSurf3

a day ago
That’s good to hear, you grow primarily veggies? No soybeans?
AdLib a day ago
Since I am not in the line for those handouts I know too little to be informed.
MurphTheSurf3

a day ago
Yes…..I have truck gardens….a series of midsize gardens specializing in organic salad, and cooking veggies.
MurphTheSurf3

We had about 40 people here and there was nary a political word but it was tense nevertheless.
MurphTheSurf3

You’re a sart man, you don’t depend on international trade like many in your co-op. And they still praise Trump?
AdLib a day ago
I am certain that nary a one thought of himself/herself as part of a global market since they sold to middle men who sold to China. Yes, praise of Trump continues but muted.

The difference between Trump voters and Dems is that we feel uneasy when anyone suffers. Much as we’ve discussed that Trump supporters will have to suffer badly before they back away from him.
AdLib a day ago
I’m still not pleased to hear how worried and in trouble many pwople are.
AdLib a day ago
Who voted for this to happen to them.
AdLib a day ago
That is certainly true of many Dems and for the GOP callousness has become virtue.
MurphTheSurf3

And kept supporting the man who is crushing them.
AdLib a day ago
My neighbors were part of the wave that vote out Claire and they will regret it. I still had a sign in my office window. One neighbor said to me “I bet you regret THAT now?” I said: “Of course not, but you will regret not voting for her. Mark my words.” He left early. Good riddance.

Yes, they have become mirrors of Trump as a bully. To want to hurt peope and be unmoved by their hurting is “brave” to such cowards. Now when it is happening to them, I’m sure they expect everyone to sympathize and want to help them…and will be very upset when they are ignored…because Trump can’t let people see that truth.
AdLib a day ago
Not surprising, a number of those being hurt….are finding ways to shift the blame to the Democrats, to Clinton, to Obama, to the deep state….a Trump state of mind.
MurphTheSurf3

That kneejerkdom, just following who everyone else is and hating who everyone else does is ignorant and self-destructive. They’re just disposible tools of the wealthy and powerful and too much in denial to listen to that truth and accept it.
