Vox Populi, our weekly live chat about the week’s events begins tonight at 7:00pm PDT. Hope to see you then! AdLib 5 hours ago

I can’t see anything except my own type on my VOX screen. Anyone here? glenn 3 hours ago

hi Ad, glenn pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Going to close this window and start again, if anyone is here. glenn 3 hours ago

MAybe Ad is serving 14 days! pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Yoo Hoo glenn! pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Whew! Someone is here! How are you, PPO? Are you not seeing Ad either? glenn 3 hours ago

just his note 2 hours ago pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

A bit late today pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Yeah, seems like it. So….how are you and Fergie doing? glenn 3 hours ago

Fergie, god bless her is still trying to absorb the loss of her BFF. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

I’m ok, had my monthly eye injection yesterday for AMD pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

It’s not everyday you hear a great friend has been murdered, so she’s having a hard time of it pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Did you watch the debate last night? I never watch them live; I wait until the next day to see the “highlights”. Love, “Hell, yes, I am taking your AR15’s and AK47’s!” Go Beto! glenn 3 hours ago

No, didn’t see anything, but saw that on Twitter! Boy, that other politician led with his jaw threatening him. Hope they arrest him pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

I just can’t imagine the pain she’s going through. Just keep holding her and giving her support, as I know you will, my friend. glenn 3 hours ago

Yuk on the eye injections. Do they help? glenn 3 hours ago

We get strength from friends like you and the POV family. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Right. As Beto said, that twit just proved his point about why we need to take those weapons away. I hope the FBI at least interviews him, doubt very much that they’ll do anything more, unfortunately. glenn 3 hours ago

Yes. the damage done can’t be reversed, but the injections (painless but nerve wracking!) will prevent any further deterioration, so I can see OK enought to keep driving – our lifeline, as Fergie can’t get a licence. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Murph! pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Harleigh pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

I’m glad to hear that our feeble attempts at support help you and your Fergie. glenn 3 hours ago

Hey Murph! glenn 3 hours ago

NOt feeble at all, g, we really can feel it. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Oh dear. Do you live where you have no public transport? glenn 3 hours ago

ta da! Harleigh 3 hours ago

Harleigh! glenn 3 hours ago

Hello….I stopped watching these debates quite a while ago. I read through the transcripts…….frankly, these “debates” are really group interviews with some cross talk. And, even if they were, debates….debating is not high on the skillset of anyone seeking the Presidency. In fact, good presidents listen a lot more than they talk. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

I wonder if Melania has found out who the father of her son is, yet? Together? Funny name that. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Murph, agree. I so wish they’d concentrate firepower on PresidentPussyAssedBitch and not cheap shots at each other. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Murph–I agree about watching the debates. It’s a waste of time. Actually, IMO, the debates are a waste of time. It would be so much better if the media would just devote an hour or two to the top candidates and interview them one on one. And ask them all the same questions. glenn 3 hours ago

PPO–Good one! I do think “Together” is a much better name than Barron! glenn 3 hours ago

For me….I want to read their positions, see their formal speeches, listen to in-depth interviews, examine their personal and professional histories….and the debates do not help me do any of that. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

That would be a much better format,glenn pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Glenn…I like your approach. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

‘debates only demean eahother not Spanky. Harleigh 3 hours ago

That’s sure how it looks , Harleigh pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Let’s remember that the news media are in the business of gathering audiences and that requires DRAMA!

MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

my typing finger isn’t doing well as I eat! lol Harleigh 3 hours ago

Ratings! pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Loved Pelosi’s interview yesterday where she told the press to go ask Moscow Mitch if he has any regrets for all the people dying because of his inaction. Great answer! Also, loved the part of her press conference where she had the chart of the places the TLB is stealing money from for his wall. About time. She needs to do something like that every week! glenn 3 hours ago

just remember the hot dog is in your LEFT hand, h! pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

lol Harleigh 3 hours ago

Murph–I like your approach also, except the media we have nowadays doesn’t seem to do in-depth interviews. Probably because the viewing pubic’s attention span is not much longer than the TLB’s. glenn 3 hours ago

yes, glenn. I wish the MSM would take her challenge and get after McConnell. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

I have been reading Warren’s position (I have a plan for that) papers. They remind me of Obama’s and that is good. She take a steadier tone of late and that is a winner for me. Biden is still doing well in mind and his papers are more of a right/left balance whereas Warren leans left. Bernie has never drawn much respect from me. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

most of Dolt BS is smokescreen for eliminating envirnmenal protections and stealing public parkland and operational money. Harleigh 3 hours ago

Thanks, PPO. Then the interviews should be put on a format where people can watch them at their leisure, because I know most working people don’t have time to probably watch them in real time. Put them up on a youtube channel, or somewhere on the internet that is easily accessible. glenn 3 hours ago

Glenn….I like that idea too….of course just as few read, few watch serious programming and those interviews would be very serious. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Hey all! Sorry I got pulled away! AdLib 3 hours ago

So far I only like Warren. Harleigh 3 hours ago

Hi Ad, glad the elastic broke and you’re with us! pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

I really want a woman president…… MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Boing! AdLib 3 hours ago

PPO – Glad to hear Fergie is doing better. AdLib 3 hours ago

wish we get another late surprise like O bama….. if only… Harleigh 3 hours ago

Fergie and I feel Kamala is only mouthing sound bites. Not being human enough. Bernie is …….well, Bernie. Biden? worrisome. Warren. Wish she would stop flapping her arms around. Others? Nah pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Rachel is going to be spending most of her program on Tuesday with Warren….Warren will be in NY at Washington Square Park delivering what is being billed as a “landmark address” aiming for a BIG crowd………. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Thanks, Ad. Still in shock pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

I think Warren touches all of the bases. I am now very much opposed to Biden after he revealed his old school, white paternal racism last night. AdLib 3 hours ago

Murph–I am also impressed that Warren won’t take the media’s bait on taxes re healthcare. She’s getting the message out there about how people will actually save money with her plan(s). It’s a great approach, and shows her professorial background. Teach people, forget sound bites. So far, my dream team(s) would be either Warren/O’Rourke or Warren/Buttigeig. glenn 3 hours ago

glenn, Warren/O’Rourke works for me. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Welcome back, Ad! glenn 3 hours ago

PPO – I don’t fault any of the candidates for having their canned lines to try and create moments for themselves but they are oblivious to how contrived they come off. They don’t work like reason, like catching what another candidate says and pinning them down on it. The catchphrases are so clunky. AdLib 3 hours ago

Thanks glenn! AdLib 3 hours ago

Ad–I’ve always been opposed to Biden as well as Bernie. We don’t need any more old, white men! And that’s coming from an old, white woman! glenn 3 hours ago

Joe is now an anachronism. His old-style no longer works in the modern Social media mileu. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

PPO – It’s hard to imagine, I know Fergie will be working through this for a while. As long as she knows we’re thinking of her too. AdLib 3 hours ago

She does, Ad. We both do and thank you all for your support. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

second glenn from a old honkey from da hood. Harleigh 3 hours ago

PPO–If you like Warren/O’Rourke, then you’re in for a lot of hand waving! It is distracting, but they both have such solid platforms, that after a while, I don’t even see it! glenn 3 hours ago

glenn – Same here but when he portrayed black people who live in poor areas as bad parents and their kids being psychologically damaged, that changed things for me. I will be far more aggressive about opposing his candidacy. AdLib 3 hours ago

II kind of think that Warren/Stacy Abrams could have a lot of power. AdLib 3 hours ago

Honkey, Harleigh? glenn 3 hours ago

glenn, i do like o’rourke’s ‘earthiness’. It shows there is a human just like us in there. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

I was a little concerned about two women being on the ticket but I think Trump trumps that potential issue. AdLib 3 hours ago

lol yep Harleigh 3 hours ago

And Abrams is so strong and smart. She can help rally a big turnout in the African American community while both can rally a big turnout for women and college educated men. AdLib 3 hours ago

I do like Beto though. He would do a very good job as VP, I think. But Abrams is more exciting to me in a variety of ways. AdLib 3 hours ago

As I noted earlier….I read the transcripts of the simultaneous, group interviews referred to as debates (when they clearly are not)…and also note that the “skills” present during these set pieces have hardly anything to do with being president…..For me….I want to read their positions, see their formal speeches, listen to in-depth interviews, examine their personal and professional histories….and the debates do not help me do any of that. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Ad–Yeah, that comment last night certainly proved how out of touch Biden really is. It also shows how some old people cannot see how much differently younger people and people of color see the world. Biden is still looking at the US through his white privilege and it’s showing up, unfortunately. I’m going to be VERY disappointed if he ends up as the nominee. I also don’t think he’d be any good in a debate with the TLB.
