Vox Populi, our weekly live chat about the week’s events begins tonight at 7:00pm PDT. Hope to see you then! AdLib 4 hours ago

hey PPO! AdLib an hour ago

see u soon, Ad pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Holy windfarms, Batman! Did that Danish Lady shade Brokeahontas or what? Epic! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

AdLib an hour ago

So many references in one sentance! AdLib an hour ago

Well, one Koch less. No Ts or Ps there. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

2 Kochs – 1 Koch = Satan AdLib an hour ago

1 Koch + Drumpf = Lucifer pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Murph! How are you this week? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO….did you spend a while creating that wonderful trope? MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

That is called New Koch Math. AdLib an hour ago

As opposed to Classic Koch. AdLib an hour ago

Sorry, Mutph, what’s a trope? I just thought it as I was typing pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO…good….I have met my revenue goal for the summer three weeks early…….if the fall is as good I will be a happy farmer. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

One of the few, I’m betting, M! Good for you pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Trope….a figurative or metaphorical use of a word or expression. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Good for you, Murph! Let the pro-Trump farmers scratch their heads as they’re foreclosed on. AdLib an hour ago

Riiigght, M! It just comes out nopw and again pinkpantheroz an hour ago

So, can we agree that Trump has clearly lost his tiny mind this week? AdLib an hour ago

Trump thought it was called Greedland and said, “I have to have it!” AdLib an hour ago

No doubt about it, Ad, but we know little if anything will be done. Dangerous, IMO to leave it to election time. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

As I shared with Ad….two of my regular competitors….have fallen victim to water table pollution because a local tannery has stopped abiding by the agreement made during the Obama years…….and, wait for it, the Trump admn has no interest in enforcing it. Both guys are Trumpeteers. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad….he is expressing how lost his mind has been for a considerable time….what’s that song called: “Pressure!” MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

And so impeachment momentum could really snowball, witnessing Trump out of control and going mad. “The Chosen One”? Attacking Jews, POC, the Fed Chairman and Denmark? He’s lost it! AdLib an hour ago

I feel bad, Murph, not for those bozos, but that the water table has been compromised pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO…with you on that….. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad…I think that the Impeachment inquiry will take on added urgency and so will talk of the 25th MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Trump denied he would build a \hotel in Greenland if he bought the place, which means, of course……… pinkpantheroz an hour ago

But Trump’s madness has no been weaponized against the economy. It wasn’t enough for Repubs that he was committing war crimes against immigrants or supporting neo Nazi mass murderers. But now that their money is involved, that matters to them. AdLib an hour ago

glenn! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hey there Glenn MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Murrph – Agreed though the 25th Amendment is pointless because Trump has only butt kissers in his cabinet. AdLib an hour ago

Hi glenn! AdLib an hour ago

Evenin’ gents. Murph, congrats on meeting your goals! glenn an hour ago

I can’t wait to see Trump’s “empire” crumble to the ground after he loses in 2020…and the criminal indictments pile up. AdLib an hour ago

Ad….I generally agree but if Trump is seen as a ghost ship sailing out into the haunted Sargossa….the GOP backers will lower the boats and row away……at that point the crew (i.e. the GOP pols) may suddently discover their desire to right the course of the ship of state by walking the captain off the plank. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Thanks Glenn MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

But I wonder if Trump will try to remain the king of the GOP even after he is defeated. The good side of that is that the GOP will be tied to a madman who is a loser and a criminal. AdLib an hour ago

KAmala Harris ‘borrowed’ an observation of mine that Trump is like a blowfish. Not many people know that blowfish secrete a deadly poison on their skins , but that dolphins lick it to get high! Sounds like a lot of Trump Arse-lickers doesn’t it? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Trump’s pain will be our gain. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

PPO…..so you and Kamala are pals? MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

I’m just shaking my head this week. There’s nothing else I can do. I cannot believe that 40% of the American public supports the TLB, nor can I believe that republicans in congress are so silent about all the madness that has gone on this week. The TLB is just falling apart before our very eyes, yet…crickets. The only ones speaking out against him are the people who can’t do anything. And I’m so disappointed in Pelosi; in fact I’m mad. The first thing she should be doing when she gets back to DC is beginning impeachment proceedings. glenn an hour ago

Murph, no one ever went broke betting on the GOP to choose the most offensive and divisive paths available. No way the GOP will steer towards a moderate direction, their base is now the dregs of humanity, they would never support it. The days of a Jeb Bush winning the base’s votes is long over. AdLib an hour ago

PPO–OMG! Blowfish describes the TLB and his arse-lickers perfectly! glenn an hour ago

PPO – I really like that allegory! Though instead of licks, I would say Trump’s followers suck. AdLib an hour ago

Murph–I hope the TLB’s pain is severe! glenn an hour ago

Murph, the USS Delerium Tremens will be taken out and sunk in the Marianas Trench, but its legacy will stain the GOP forever. Any time they say or do anything outrageous, just shout ‘Trump! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Glenn…I expect Pelosi to take the tack of “I am the Speaker of the House, and the Speaker, above all, represents it will and that is what I intend to do as we move resolutely and with proper care into the impeachment process.” MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

PPO….boy you are hot tonight….USS Delerium Tremens….shiver me timbers! MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

‘blush’ pinkpantheroz an hour ago

glenn – The latest AP poll…Trump is down to 36% support. I don’t know how much lower he can go, not below 30% with his cult members blindly approving everything about him but 36% a year before the election…with the economy slowing, is not a good place to be. AdLib an hour ago

Isn’t it interesting how McConnell wrote a rare editorial…asking Dems to support the filibuster. Hmm…wondering if he thinks he and Repubs may need it? AdLib an hour ago

PPO–I do not EVER want to hear a republican criticize a Democratic president EVER again! Not on executive orders; not on the deficit; not on the debt; not on tariffs; not on foreign policy; they have NOTHING with which to criticize a Democratic president, considering they have been either complicit or silent during the TLB’s shattering of all those things. glenn an hour ago

Murph, like your slow-witted neighbors, I feel the tide against Trump is slowly breaching the delusional levies they/ve erected. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

right on, g! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Murph – I hope you’re right. Pelosi’s blockade of impeachment is looking worse and worse for her though. As Trump does more and more destruction, her protection of him from impeachment looks unprincipled. AdLib an hour ago

Murph–Yeah, that’s what I expect her to do, also. Do you still think the impeachment process should be slow? glenn 44 minutes ago

I second that, PPO is on a roll tonight! Very clever stuff! AdLib 44 minutes ago

Ad–Unprincipled, indeed. WHY is she protecting him? glenn 43 minutes ago

McConnell…two face asshat…..that editorial tells the Dems that had they not changed the rules for confirming judges then the problem they are having with Trump’s appointments would be far less severe. BS….:McConnell would have changed to rules had they not already been changed. MurphTheSurf3 43 minutes ago

too kind, Ad. pinkpantheroz 43 minutes ago

glenn – If only that would be the case but such compulsive hypocrites have no shame. I guarantee that after the Dems take back the WH, they will be howling as a choir about how awful the deficit is and how everything but defense must be cut. AdLib 43 minutes ago

PPO–Let me add my compliments to Murph’s and Ad’s. You are indeed a clever lad tonight, much more than usual! glenn 42 minutes ago

There are now four committees in the House persuing impeachment or impeachment related issues….yeah, she is providing the staging platorm for the big play. MurphTheSurf3 42 minutes ago

I’d love to take credit, but it really just happens out of nowhere. pinkpantheroz 41 minutes ago

Ad–And every time a repub howls, a Dem should be bringing up the TLB’s numbers; tweets; and downright criminality. Every. Single. Time! glenn 41 minutes ago

glenn – She and her close aides have explained it. Pelosi worries that making the Dems in red distriicts vote for impeachment imperils their re-election. But that excuse is not acceptable when a madman is running through our house setting everything on fire. AdLib 41 minutes ago

PPO…are you suggestion that divine inspiration is at work? MurphTheSurf3 40 minutes ago

Murph, that’s what I understand. Pelosi can say that the wheels are turning. pinkpantheroz 40 minutes ago

Divine, definitely not, M! Divilish, perhaps! pinkpantheroz 40 minutes ago

PPO ….. and she can say that she is respecting due process in ways her GOP counterparts never have. MurphTheSurf3 40 minutes ago

Ad, what can you do if the GOP won’t allow yoou to plug in the hoses? pinkpantheroz 39 minutes ago

Murph–hopefully, Pelosi gets the stage hands moving quickly. Every day, the TLB destroys more and more of our government. glenn 39 minutes ago

Murph – Agreed, if McConnell is talking or writing, he’s lying. Dems got rid of the filibuster for judicial appointments because McConnell had shut them down. When Trump was elected, McConnell immediately threw out filibusters on SCOTUS nd caabinet positions. Who believes he wouldn’t have done that anyway? AdLib 39 minutes ago

Ad–you know, I can kinda see that argument. However, if the Dems are in solid red districts, it probably doesn’t matter, does it? So, instead of worrying about your re-election chances, worry about your principles and vote to restore sanity to our country! glenn 38 minutes ago

Why, Oh, why has no one called the bugger out on his sadistic ‘fun’ gutting more of the ACA? pinkpantheroz 37 minutes ago

PPO–You stomp out the fire! glenn 37 minutes ago

PPO–so the devil made you say it? glenn 37 minutes ago
