And so it begins… AdLib 4 hours ago

I will be so pleased when we compress this field down to 5 or so. AdLib 4 hours ago

Hey Murph! AdLib 4 hours ago

I can be here tonight. Did you get my note from Ray? MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

What did you think of last night’s effort. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

Didn’t see it yet, will read it! AdLib 4 hours ago

Yeah….he is locked out for some reason….fantastic writer. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

Getting something to wet my whistle….. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

I think Bernie and Warren did what they had to do and that the “moderates” just came off as downers and pseudo Repubs. None of them should be in the next debate. What about you? AdLib 4 hours ago

I am a pragmatist…..lots of promises, expansive policy, massive shifts in national life…..HOW? I have read through Trumps, Warren and Harris’ programs and the arguments are circular. As you might guess I am for the moderates. I am willing to have a strong “progressive” but as number 2. I know you disagree. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

I meant Bernie…not Trump MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Why are they not going after Trump’s disastrous hollowing out of the ACA, and Medicare? MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Pragmatism never made voters enthusiastic to turn out. Vision matters. You shoot for the moon and if you catch a star, great! AdLib 3 hours ago

The should be arguing for the ACA AS IT WAS INTENDED.Which was far more expansive than it ended up being. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Ad…I see your point. I do. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Yes! The ACA has been hobbled by Trump and Repubs. AdLib 3 hours ago

My worry is that Trump et. al. will be able to frame the argument that the Dems are looking to socialism and use the words of these candidates in sound clip after clip to reinforce the message. Maybe it won’t matter but as you know I do not hold much stock in the quality of the electorate. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

The campaign against Trump needs to be ongoing…..all I see in my nightmares is a Supreme Court of 7-2. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Is the system sending out notices for events like this one. I only knew about because I check the Planet regularly. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Trump can only frame things that his cultists believe. AdLib 3 hours ago

Yes, email notifications were sent. AdLib 3 hours ago

ad….I dearly hope that you are spot on….. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

hmmmm….I did not get one….in fact I am getting notifications about comments on pages where my articles are appearing but that is it. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

You are? Hmm, maybe they are going to your spam box? AdLib 3 hours ago

Nope. Check that too. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

I have three different emails and I get them at each of them. AdLib 3 hours ago

Not me…..wonder why? MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

I’ll do some checking! AdLib 3 hours ago

Is there something I need to do on my dashboard to allow for them. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Nope, it should be automatic. AdLib 3 hours ago

BTW….are you watching the debate right now. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Biden is being a jerk right now. I guess that’s supposed to make him seem strong? AdLib 3 hours ago

Towards Kamala. AdLib 3 hours ago

Biden is going to look like mansplaining. AdLib 3 hours ago

Yeah. I am watching…..being a jerk or challenging….. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

He needs to get rhetorically slapped, the bullying approach is Trumpesque, I do not respect that. AdLib 3 hours ago
