Non-stops to the left of us, layovers to the right! AdLib 3 hours ago

$1000 to add name pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Not that I’ve seen but the obviously photoshopped pictures from Trump confirm it was a low turnout. AdLib 3 hours ago

The Battle of Carousel 5 was bloody. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Yep, I get the same impression. Favored angles only. No Monument camera. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

We know though, most people know that whatever Trump claims in turnout is a lie. AdLib 3 hours ago

Trump claims the rain softened his brain and so mentioned airports. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

brb pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Carry on Soldiers! Carry on only one piece of personal baggage. AdLib 3 hours ago

Murph! pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

I have it on good authority that the Ft. McHenry was buzz bombed and that it was our fighter jets that pushed them off which is why Francis Scott Key wrote the National Anthem. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Hello Ad and PPO….. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Hey Murph! Got your round trip ticket to the American Revolution? AdLib 3 hours ago

The F-16 Red Glare, missiles bursting in Air pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

What a first class idiot he is and he look so bored last night…..rain dropping down on the lack lustre crowd………As I watched him it occurred to me that the only way he can be interesting is to be an ass. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

United (States) Airlines. AdLib 3 hours ago

His excuse for mentioning airports was that he had to think for himself. AdLib 3 hours ago

yes, the rain screwed his teleprompter. hee hee pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Waiting for the Evilgelicals to claim the rain is God’s punishment on… oh never mind pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

At least that’s what he said but I don’t believe him when he says anything. AdLib 3 hours ago

I wrote last night that Climate Change doesn’t believe in Trump. AdLib 3 hours ago

Ad, were you shaken by the quake? pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Not so much where I live. The worst damage MSNBC showed was a trailer home that had broken in the middle. AdLib 2 hours ago

I went to my local watering hole when the speech was on to see how the locals were taking to it. A lot of talking over….but when it was done several claimed that “the President was forced to be boring because the media would not cover the speech unless he was…..” hopeless rubes. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

News here showed big cracks in a highway pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Ad – re. the quake…the reports said that the quake was a shallow one……and that was the key in minimizing damage….true? MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Murph, he couldn’t rabble rouse as per usual, otherwise he would have to pay much dinero pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

I’m not surprised that his cult members were disappointed. He didn’t hate enough for them. AdLib 2 hours ago

I spoke with a former student on Wednesday night….he is a watch commander for the DC police and he was nervous….the rain and smallish crowd was good news for them…of note, the crowd at the mall was about the average size. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Murph, u think that was the case which is a great thing but a six point five earthquake while very strong isn’t usually distructive unless it is in a populated area. AdLib 2 hours ago

We live through an 8.0 in the Northridequake. AdLib 2 hours ago

That’s strong, Ad. pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Ad….just reporting what the national story tellers were relating…..the shallower the quake the less effect on the tectonic plates I suppose. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

That’s true Murph AdLib 2 hours ago

BRB! AdLib 2 hours ago

The Trump admin blew by the deadline today to present counter arguments to Judge Hazel’s court……and the entire census prep process is so time sensitive cannot see how this is prolonged. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

I can’t see how Hazel or Roberts would allow any other attempt now that the original intent of the citizenship question is starting discovery. Once it’s confirmed to be a criminal venture, they can’t come up with another cover story. AdLib 2 hours ago

They’re trying to, but too late. pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Has Joe Biden screwed his nomination? pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Ad and PPO that is how I read this as well. AND, these tactics have to be angering the judiciary……..Roberts is looking to the legacy of that entire branch at this point….they are going to have to stand strong in defense of the constitutional standards or be remembered as among the worst of courts. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

PPO…no, I don’t think Biden is out……I am not enthused about him but I would be ok with him….I am convinced that anyone that the opposition can hang the tag “socialist, leftist” on will lose however. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

SCOTUS is on a knife edge as it is pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

PPO….there have been three decisions so far where “Trump Judges” did not vote with him…. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Murph, hope so and agree about the old chestnut ‘Socialist’ tag. Can’t that ever get defused? Wow. Those judges may actually (gasp) have ethics! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

I’ve predicted for some time that as the debates go on, people will see Joe fumble and appear as past his expiration date. I do not think he will be the nom. Consider why they’re hiding him so much from the public. We don’t need a Hillary/Trump replay in 2020. AdLib 2 hours ago

Socialist is a red hot word in this country. In much of the world “Socialist” has been attached to a variety of political organizations with varying degrees of ardency but not here. Here the word is associated with the far, and radical, left. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Murph – By continuing this, Barr has trashed the rep of the DoJ. Does Roberts want to become a Trump casualty too? I don’t think so. AdLib 2 hours ago

I have seen Biden interviewed several times in the past four days and he holds his own well. Today he help an impromptu press gaggle and took questions from a dozen reporters for more than 45 minutes. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Sad, but agree, Ad. He does have the gravitas and experience to be POTUS, but may drop the ball. pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Roberts has been keenly aware that the legacy of the court depends more on him than anyone else…and I think that he is working to raise the awareness of the other justices so that SCOTUS is not smeared by an association with the Trump agenda. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Murph – My feeling is that Trump will throw the phony socialist slam against the Dem non even if it’s Biden. He’ll claim Biden is a puppet of the far left. So that shouldn’t be an issue that Dems accept from Trump. AdLib 2 hours ago

Murph – My feeling is that Trump will throw the phony socialist slam against the Dem non even if it’s Biden. He’ll claim Biden is a puppet of the far left. So that shouldn’t be an issue that Dems accept from Trump. AdLib 2 hours ago

Trump can make the claim but it will be far easier to associate with those in the Dem ranks whose language, and history makes the association more plausible for the undecided voter. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Murph, seeing as Trump is Putin’s Puppet, how about we start labeling him as a Commie Pawn? pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

My take on Biden’s interviews was different, I don’t think he comes off so well and polls aren’t supporting the more positive take on Biden. His numbers are bleeding. AdLib 2 hours ago

PPO……I think attacks on Trump have to be narrowly focused and target specific groups so as to drive wedges between them and Trump. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Roberts may be RW but he is one of the few if only Tepubs left who cares about institutions and his legacy. AdLib 2 hours ago

I see Biden’s numbers dropping but that was to be expected I think….the field is currently so crowded that what is needed is a winnowing so that the trends in transference of support are clearer. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Ad, agree with your SCOTUS analysis. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

“What do you call someone who is dedicated to destroying the democratic structure of the USA and concentrating power in the hands of the Vlasti? I call him a Communist!” pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Murph – Disagree with you. Biden is for universal healthcare and providing HC to undocumented immigrants, just as all other Dem candidates are, so the “socialist” tag will be just as strong against him. AdLib 2 hours ago

Biden is for a Medicare option for all but is not for an end to private insurance or employer based insurance. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

As to providing HC to the undocumented…..what that means is very open to how that is defined….emergency room care? clinic based general care? meds? Biden has made the case that until someone provides a funding model then it is pie in the sky. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

PPO – Yes, one simple attack on Trump should be, “I will protect the United States, I will not be aligned with our enemies for personal or financial reasons.” AdLib 2 hours ago

Ad…I find that compelling. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Well…nearly 10. Ad, we need to touch bases….plans for the weekend? MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Murph – I don’t think it was expected that Biden would fall to 2nd in polls in IA to Warren, especially this early. And nationally, Biden is now in a statistical tie with Harris. There’s a reason they’ve been hiding him from the public. Can’t do that anymore. He will continue to decline I think. AdLib 2 hours ago

And how about Bernie sinking in the polls? Again, this seemed likely too. AdLib 2 hours ago

Iowa always tightens fast. The tie with Harris depends on how those combined polls are tallied. We shall how things go in terms of his decline. I wonder about the ceiling for those who will have the socialist label stapled to their backs. I wonder how Harris will fare in the longer run given that she does not have the kind of accomplishments that will attract the middle-middle. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

I do not see Biden as being hidden….he makes major appearances every day. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Well, better saddle up Bluebell and sally forth to confront BA002 approaching Idlewild Marshes. I bid you Good Night, Sirs! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

I think the “hidden” label is a meme being pushed by the media. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Good night PPO. Ad has already left us…so I shall close the shop I guess. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

see you, Murph. Stay safe pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Out of town this weekend, Murph. But not in DC with Trumpers! AdLib 2 hours ago

Murph, I’m all for what Biden is for but it will be called “socialist” by Trump, it already has been. Dems need to accept that and figure out the best response to it, no matter who the nom is. AdLib 2 hours ago
