See you then! AdLib 2 hours ago

Hey Murph! AdLib 2 hours ago

Hi Murph! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

How are things your way, PPO? AdLib 2 hours ago

OK, Ad. Usual medical grumbles. Apart from that the GOP New gummint here have already backed out of one of their ‘core’ election promises – a tax-cut for the middle class. pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Sorry you’ve got to deal with what you do. AdLib 2 hours ago

Health-wise. AdLib 2 hours ago

As for the Labor Gov’t betraying its voters, isn’t that what they do without paying a price wherever the ignorant vote? AdLib 2 hours ago

Don’t worry, even that is nothing compared with what the US has to deal with daily. Could Cousin It be any more of a bufoon. pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Oh, don’t worry about us. We have 3 legs, 3 arms and 3 eyes between us, so we can mutter along pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Trump’s photo now appears in the dictionary beside the definition of “jackass”. AdLib 2 hours ago

Now I’m scared…what else do you have 3 of??? AdLib 2 hours ago

It’s the LIBERAL (Conservative) bastards! Labor lost, dammit! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Whoops, I meant Liberal! AdLib 2 hours ago

forgiven pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

What was their main propaganda that they ran on? Populism? AdLib 2 hours ago

yes, and good economy (lie!). Boogeymen nasty lobor will tax your retirement pensions! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

“But we’ll promise to cut your taxes but not do it. Would Labour do that? I think not!” AdLib 2 hours ago

BTW, Nice to know Trump considers Fox more important than WWII combatants, allies and ceremonies. Class act, not. pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Buyers remorse setting in already. Luckily there is only a 3-year term for these berks, but the damage done in the last 6 is huge pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Trump: “Hey, those military guys from the 40’s who faught that war and went to the beach are dead anyway, they can wait.” AdLib 2 hours ago

Vell, Herr Drumpf perhaps was pissed off that his side didn’t win pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

It just amazes me though that so many voters are so ignorant that they can believe the party that keeps lying to them in every election. Trump’s electiion taught me, more people out there are more ignorant than you ever imagined. AdLib 2 hours ago

frighteningly so, Ad. And with the insidious propaganda on Social media, who can believe anything nowadays? pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Trump kept Mein Kampf on his night stand, so the rumor goes. He would have kept Hitler on his 4th of July invite list if he was around. AdLib 2 hours ago

Love the Yuuuuge crows jee…er cheering him in London. pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Since I’ve always had a dim view of social media, I found it ridiculous that people were saying they got their news from social media…then I learned, yes, people really did. Very disappointed in humanity. AdLib 2 hours ago

They weren’t booing, they were yelling “Troooomp!” AdLib 2 hours ago

Ad, what are the believable alternatives, other than us here??? Fox, Murdoch, Kochs? pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

If we can crush Trump in 2020, I don’t think his ego could take it. Yes, he’ll cry that it was a fake election but I think he will eventually have a nervous breakdown. AdLib 2 hours ago

‘They are now fumigating Europe’: Bill Maher blasts Trump as ‘the ugliest American ever’ after disastrous European trip pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

You mean for the RW nutters? They have no choice to get legit news, it’s all tribal, truth doesn’t matter to them. AdLib 2 hours ago

In despair we have to wait that long. Time to hammer him into the ground with Committee findings, investigations, release of every damning, criminal, corrupt act he and his crime family have perpetrated, so that even the most blind of his people see the naked emperor (shudder) pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Hello there……I will likely only be here for a few moments. I am exhausted. As you may have read the DHSS Director, Dr. Randall Williams, who was Medical Poobah in NC and made the judgment that warnings about potash sludge in water from coal mines were exaggerated and toned them down (and was then forced out of his post there after only 18 months)….has decreed a new standard for women seeking any abortion service, including non surgical ones……MUST have a MD Pelvic Exam three days prior to the procedure (whether surgical or not) and then, if surgical must have another at the time of the procedure. I was asked to take part in meetings today, long meetings, to help keep peace. A LOT of angry people. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

I am just as fascinated by so many Dems insisting impeachment woud be a mistake. The degree of fear is embarassing. AdLib 2 hours ago

Hi, Murph, sorry you’re to jaded, but keep up the fight as well as you can! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Yes, I heard that. As I saw one doctor describe it, “I have to unnecessarily insert my fingers into a woman’s vagina for no medical reason, only because these politicians want to force this on the woman.” Not an exact quote, but you get it. AdLib 2 hours ago

I can only shake my head at the utter evil unleashed by Trumps antics, and Congress’ failure to rein him in. Now any asshole can legislate any insane rule and get away with it. pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

How sick is it that these disgusting men are making it law to force a physical intrusion into a woman’s vagina, as punishment for controlling their own bodies. AdLib 2 hours ago

Hey everyone! How are you? And yes – these creeps are getting worse by the hour. choicelady 2 hours ago

how about men requiring insertion of a catheter into the penis before any sex? I’ll vote for that, seeing I aint gettin’ any! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

CL, Hi pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

I think the path for Elizabeth Warren and other women candidates just got wider. For a woman to take Trump down for forcing this physical takeover of women’s independence and bodies, it would be powerful. AdLib 2 hours ago

Hey CL! AdLib 2 hours ago

Hi PPO – I don’t know if I thank you for that last comment or commiserate with you! choicelady 2 hours ago

Hey Ad – how are you? choicelady 2 hours ago

Doing well, CL! How are you and hubby? AdLib 2 hours ago

Ad – we’re OK. Our AC is out, not repair in sight, 101 Monday, but hey…learning to live the OLD FASHIONED way. Sigh. choicelady 2 hours ago

lookin as if Bernie is starting to fade. Sorry, but I think that is a good thing – can’t distract or divert many votes pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

PPO – Bernie deserves to go down. I’m not the least upset about it. choicelady 2 hours ago

CL – NOOO! Do you know what’s wrong with your A/C? AdLib 2 hours ago

PPO – We discussed it here a while back, that Bernie’s expiration date has passed and it’s proving out. We’re just too damn smart! AdLib 2 hours ago

cl, bag of ice from garage place in bolw and put fan on over it. pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Yes – the coil has cracks. Five year old unit, and there are no backup parts in Sacramento. It’s a Trane, one of the best, the company that services it is supposedly the best. And I’m about to go postal on them for not being prepared. BOTH of them. choicelady 2 hours ago

Only 5 years, ad? Disgrace. Ours is 15 and going like a train, as it needs to here! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Damn! How long is it going to take to get a new coil? I’ve had the A/C out on a hot day, I couldn’t get to sleep. AdLib 2 hours ago

If you can afford it, swap it out for a Mitsubishi! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Oh, how dem Mexican tariffs working? heh heh pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

The world’s A/C is going to be intensely needed. When it comes to Climate Change and every month, there are major climate disasters, you kind of feel like watching Nero fiddle as Rome burns as you watch Trump and the Repubs. AdLib 2 hours ago

PPO – I have all the backup plans, but our saving grace is the “Delta Breeze” over the large watershed south of the city. Once the temp drops below the house temp, we open up w fans, get the cool night air. But anything needing doing – running the dryer – must be done before 6 am to maximize the coolness and not heat the house. Grrrr, choicelady 2 hours ago

America will be heavily taxed and Mexico will be blamed for it. AdLib 2 hours ago

Ad – In our case Rome isn’t burning – WE are! choicelady 2 hours ago
