Hey glenn! AdLib an hour ago

Hey Ad–Want to meet me at the DMZ to shake hands? glenn an hour ago

I think Trump is trying to speed date the worst dictators to see who is his dream tyrant. AdLib an hour ago

Hands down (pardon the pun)–it has to be putin. None of those other “he-men” helped him get elected. glenn an hour ago

Hey Harleigh! AdLib an hour ago

Wasn’t it nice to see 20 politicians on stage speaking in complete sentences, without insulting one another? glenn an hour ago

Hey Harleigh! glenn an hour ago

Trump probably has a Putin tatoo somewhere on his bloated body. AdLib an hour ago

Ad–Ewwww! glenn an hour ago

hey! Harleigh an hour ago

glenn – And nearly all speaking truth (Delaney lied about Medicare For All destroying all hospitals in the country). AdLib an hour ago

How are you, Harleigh? glenn an hour ago

I would have no trouble supporting most of the 20 if they won the nom…aside from Delaney, Gabbard and Tim Ryan. AdLib an hour ago

started a new job, end of week 2. I like it.. Harleigh an hour ago

Ad–amazing, isn’t it? Delaney kept going with Velez on his show today. I read the transcript, and still couldn’t understand what Delaney was trying to say, or how MFA would destroy hospitals. glenn an hour ago

I agree, Ad. I’d even support any one of the three you mentioned, if they got the nomination. The weakest Dem is still better than what we have now. Even Delaney, who is a total idiot. At least he would be our idiot. glenn an hour ago

Harleigh–so what’s your new job? glenn an hour ago

Harleigh – That’s very good news! Congrats! AdLib an hour ago

Hey PPO! AdLib an hour ago

Hey PPO! glenn an hour ago

I feel like I’m Ad’s parrot tonight. I think we’re typing at about the same time. glenn an hour ago

I’ve been in some Vox but no one else? What happened? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hi all. 7 minutes of nobody, then I switched off and in againand here you all are! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–Now you don’t see us, now you do! glenn an hour ago

I’ m a licensed insurance agent health and life licensed in a dozen or so states but can sell anywhere thru the agency. Medicare supplements and MEdicare advatage plans, rug plan etc. Harleigh an hour ago

drup plans…..lol Harleigh an hour ago

glenn – Delaney, Hickenlooper and Ryan are all trying to be the pro-Repub Dems…as if that’s a viable way to win the Dem primary. They say things that promote Repub talking points because they think it helps them become liked by Dems and Repubs. Nope. AdLib an hour ago

Harleigh–good on ya! Glad to hear you’re enjoying it. glenn an hour ago

Did Bernie shoot himself in the foot? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–We don’t need no stinkin’ repub-lite Dems. We need full-bore progressives glenn an hour ago

all repubes are now nazis Harleigh an hour ago

PPO–I hope so. I hope Biden did too. I will never understand why those two were the front-runners. glenn an hour ago

glenn – I would have a hard time voting for Tim Ryan or Tulsi Gabbard. Gabbard is being pushed by the Repub/Russian bot army along with the RW propaganda machine. She is probably the most dangerous of all the Dem candidates. AdLib an hour ago

Can anyone please explain what Pelosi is up to? Totally bewildered and dismayed pinkpantheroz an hour ago

glenn – Great minds think alike…but fast typing fingers come in handy too! AdLib an hour ago

Ad–I understand what you’re saying. But, would she be any worse than the TLB? glenn an hour ago

PPO–Pelosi seems to be playing the favorite Dem game…snatching defeat from the jaws of victory! glenn an hour ago

PPO – Must have been an old cached version on your browser, once you refreshed or opened a new window, you were here! AdLib an hour ago

Ad pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO – Yes, Bernie’s stock is going down because he just sounds like an old broken record now compared to the vibrant candidates around him. AdLib an hour ago

Harleigh–Not only Nazis, but racist, misogynist, lying sacks of shit. glenn an hour ago

Ad–Just as with Biden, I think Bernie’s time has passed. I will always be grateful to him, though, for pushing Dems to the left; more than some old pol Dems wanted to be. glenn an hour ago

glenn – Exactly! And we don’t need Russian/Republican promoted candidates in the Dem primary either. Gabbard needs to be sidelined ASAP by lack of support of legit Dems. AdLib an hour ago

glenn we’re at about 1937 germany or worse. same playbook Harleigh an hour ago

Ad–Pretty sure Gabbard will be steamrolled pretty soon by the better candidates, such as Warren, Harris, Castro, Booker, and Buttigieg. At least those are my front runners, in that order. glenn an hour ago

glenn – Biden and Bernie both took hits I think. And they started out at the top of polls because early polls mainly reflect name recognition. Now, I think Warren and Harris will see their numbers rise as people become more familiar with them through the debates. AdLib an hour ago

Check the double standards applied to Kamala’s feistiness compared to the argumentative men! She was great, IMO. Worried about her record in CA with AA convictions pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Harleigh–AIn’t that the truth? It’s so frightening to know that 40% of our voting population seems to be quite happy to follow that playbook, too. glenn an hour ago

Ad–I hope so, although I believe Warren had almost as much name recognition as Biden and Bernie, thanks to the TLB! glenn an hour ago

PPO–I agree. Harris was great. She was assertive, polite, and most importantly, sincere. I didn’t watch the debate; but I watched her clips numerous times, and I thought she was bang on! glenn an hour ago

I like Warren the best but getting a live smart strong woman elected is gonna be a heavy lift. I don’t want her as vp Harleigh an hour ago

Harleigh–Warren is my top pick too. I’d love to see a Warren/Harris ticket, but that would be an even heavier lift. glenn an hour ago

PPO – When Trump was elected, Dems rushed to say how they thought Ivana and Jared would protect us from him. When Pelosi became speaker and refused to impeach Trump, many Dems said, “She’s so brilliant, she must have a bigger, smarter plan.” Dems like to think that people who look like they’re doing theless principled thing are really going to do the right thing. Pelosi is an Establishment politician, focused primarily on her own power and that of her party. Her decisions, like opposing impeachment and giving billions to Trump to spend on whatever he wants regarding immigrants, reflects her mercenary focus on her power and Dems protecting themselves politically. She does not stand up for principle. Period. AdLib an hour ago

glenn, same here. Couldn’t see the debate live. relied on clips. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

glenn – Yes, Gabbard could be as bad as Trump but I’m not worried about her winning the nom. AdLib an hour ago

Ad. OUCH!!!! how have the mighty drooped! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–that’s a harsh, but true, assessment of Pelosi. The House Dems need to start pushing back on her. I think AOC is trying her best. glenn an hour ago

…trying her best to push back on Pelosi. glenn an hour ago

PPO – The misogynists in the mainstream who diss Harris for doing what they applaud men for doing are a minority, their time is ending. I have not been a big Harris fan but she was excellent in the debate and deserves the props she earned. AdLib an hour ago

Congrats to US Women’s team beating France! Go Meg! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–me neither. If Gabbard even came close to the nomination, then I would believe we are truly beyond the looking glass! glenn an hour ago

PPO–GO, Meg. That was a great game today. I’ve been spending my days in front of my TV for the past couple of weeks, and usually I don’t turn on my TV until 7 or 8 p.m. glenn an hour ago

glenn – Warren actually had very low name recognition in the general public…because most of them don’t follow the news like we do. Bernie and Biden were far more popularized for bigger things. AdLib an hour ago

HAving seen the level of expertise and sportsmanship in the World Cup. I now think womens soccer is more watchable than mens. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–Okay, I’ll take your word for it. Just glad she and Harris are getting the name recognition now. Do you think Buttigieg has blown it with his confrontations with African-Americans? glenn an hour ago

I agree with the consensus here, Warren is my top pick so far but Harris won me over last night despite my hesitations about her. Two strong women, smart women who could go toe to toe wityh Trump and humiliate him as he should be. AdLib an hour ago

biden and bernie have been around for ages and never really did much. bern seems to be a dem/I version of gomert. Harleigh an hour ago

Ad, if either of them get the nod, I’ll be fascinated by how Trump handles debates, if he doesn’t chicken out! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–So great watching strong women athletes, isn’t it? My son-in-law says the men’s soccer game is a bunch of wusses. He says they fall down at every opportunity. The women are playing tough! glenn 44 minutes ago

Pelosi clearly is not devoted to principles. She has been refusing to follow the Constitutioin and impeach Trump for political reasons and this concession to McConnell is more of the same. There are no saviors, Dems need to get that through their heads. No leaders should be given a constant pass. When they refuse to stand on principle, they should lose our confidence. And Pelosi has lost mine. AdLib 43 minutes ago

glenn, men play formation pat a cake for 89 minutes, i minute trying to score. Women ar go go go from the first whistle. pinkpantheroz 43 minutes ago

Ad–Yeah, Harris was outstanding last night. Will the next debates be the same groups of people, with the same pairings? Will the debates continue with all 20 of them?, glenn 42 minutes ago

Ad, sad to say I agree. Big disappointment pinkpantheroz 42 minutes ago

our womens team is the top of the line and I hope they get this title. they have been WAY better than the men for 15 years. Harleigh 42 minutes ago
