se u soon, ad pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

See you then1 AdLib 2 hours ago

Good evening. Am I the first one here? glenn an hour ago

Hi, glenn! Juggling a bit here. sorry! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hey PPO, how are you? How is Fergie? glenn an hour ago

Fergie’s fine, thanks. Oncologist visit positive, no sign of anything pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–Hope you have electricity to communicate with us tonight…. glenn an hour ago

We’re both loke old springs, no big bounces, more a creak and a groan! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–Good to hear. glenn an hour ago

Good to hear about Fergie….as for the old springs, I get it. I feel the same. glenn an hour ago

Waiting for Murph to tell us how the farmers are taking Frump’s backdown on the tariffs! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Oh no,I missed that one. You mean the farmers aren’t getting any more tariffs? glenn an hour ago

Hey! AdLib an hour ago

He’s worked a handshake deal to back off the trade war pinkpantheroz an hour ago

That’s good news PPO! AdLib an hour ago

Hi Ad. Have you missed the blackouts? glenn an hour ago

Yes, ad, our ABC (like the BBC, only truthful) are reporting 50 billion sales of Ag products to China pinkpantheroz an hour ago

glenn – I have electricity but that big fire is just 15 miles away from us but will never comme our way. AdLib an hour ago

PPO–Oh that’s just great. We all know how much the TLB’s handshake and word means. Absolutely nothing. So, now farmers can sell their goods to China again? glenn an hour ago

PPO–Whose ag products? US or Australia? glenn an hour ago

US pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–if the fire is only 15 miles away, you must be getting a lot of smoke, yes? glenn an hour ago

PPO – The trade “deal” is phony, Trump is cowering from the impeachment walls closing in and has pulled off the table all the important issues that he was supposedly going to resolve with his trade war. No deal needed now, just going back to where we were…after all the economic destruction his idiocy has caused. AdLib an hour ago

No tariffs were imposed by AUS. They know which side of the bread is buttered. China owns 50% of AUS anyway! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad, True, but will his dumbass cult recognize it as such? Doubt it pinkpantheroz an hour ago

glenn – Yep, no blackout here. They did shut off power in Porter Ranch, where the fire started and up north near San Francisco to prevent a fire like the Camp Fire but not in SF proper or LA. AdLib an hour ago

Ad, how utterly dumb is it to shut down power to thousands in case a fire might start somewhere? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–that is the typical TLB “Art of the Deal”, isn’t it? Create a problem where none exists, tweet how horrible everything is unless he “fixes” it, no one goes along with his nonsense, then drop the “fix” and declare everything is all right, because we’re back to where we were in the first place. Or just give the “fix” a new name, and declare everything is great! glenn an hour ago

glenn – Yes, a lot of smoke in the air though the wind is blowing away from us so it could have been smokier. AdLib an hour ago

PPO–China owns quite a bit of many countries, I think. glenn an hour ago

PPO – Trump’s dumbass cult wouldn’t recognize if their face was on fire. AdLib an hour ago

Ad,

pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–good to hear that you have favorable winds. glenn an hour ago

Ad, so all of the heartache, farm bankruptcies, suicides, dislocations, all for nothing. Damn the man. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

glenn, it almost owns Apple and Amazin now. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Amazon pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO – The stupidity of greed. Since PG&E was sued into bankruptcy after causing the Camp Fire, they didn’t invest in putting powwer lines underground so wind can’t blow them over to start fires, they just turn off the power when we have our annual strong winds (The Santa Ana Winds, from the desert). This is outrageous and only points out the importance of building up solar and other non-grid sources for power. AdLib an hour ago

Hey Murph! AdLib an hour ago

Ad–you know, your comment could apply to the TLB’s cultists. The TLB puts a lot of smoke in the air; foxsocallednews blows the smoke away with their lies, distortions, and bullshit, so the cultists say it could have been worse, but we still believe in the TLB. glenn an hour ago

Hey Murph–feeling better tonight? glenn an hour ago

Hi Gang! MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Much better, thank you. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

glenn – As long as the eventual Dem nom and the DNC run commercials showing how every deal Trump tries to make blows up, only his cult members will buy his spin on losing once again. AdLib an hour ago

Ad–is CA building up solar and other non-grid sources? glenn an hour ago

Murph! How is your health? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO…much better thank you. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

PPO – Yep, all for nothing. Trump has ruined lives and the future of our economy…for nothing. AdLib an hour ago

Ad, shout it from the rooftops pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–sure hope Dems run some of those ads. I wish the media would quit interviewing the TLB’s cultists. So many of them keep saying that they don’t care what the TLB does (or doesn’t do), they’re sticking with him. glenn an hour ago

glenn – Trump’s cult is a bit like a wildfire, maybe that’s why they look like a hot mess? AdLib an hour ago

Glad you’re feeling better Murph! AdLib an hour ago

Ad–ain’t that the truth? They definitely are a hot mess! glenn an hour ago

Murph–so glad you’re feeling better! glenn an hour ago

Shep Smith is gone from Fox. Did Murdoch agree to dump him during his meeting with Trump, or did Shep just walk. I hope the latter. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

As I have been sharing with people here who are dismayed by Trump moves that seem to be self destructive that he is a man who has been a failure for long, long time in every endeavor he has ever undertaken. His only real skill is that of nefarious side dealing supported by a sublime skill as a lying worker of his own self image. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Harleigh! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Howdy Harleigh MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Murph, how are your neighbors taking the surrender of tariffs? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

hey folks!!! Harleigh an hour ago

PPO–According to what Smith said on air, he wanted to resign a while ago; fox talked him into staying; he finally had it, so he’s gone. Who knows what the truth is? But the right has spun conspiracy theories out of much less than Murdock meeting with Barr, and days later, Smith is gone. There’s a conspiracy theory in there somewhere, if only we had Glenn Beck’s blackboard to figure it out! glenn an hour ago

Hey Harleigh! glenn an hour ago

Murph–Yes, the TLB is a failure all the way around. Hopefully, this time he has to pay the consequences of his failure(s). glenn an hour ago

Shep killed Rich Seth and is going on the run…. LOL Harleigh an hour ago

glenn, riiiiight! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO…the tariffs….my neighbors….totally baffled….common line by the true believers is that all this is how he plays his opponents and that he will triumph in the end with the loyal support of the folks in the trenches…..others, who are not so wed to him are really started to doubt the man….not enough of them and not fast enough. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

glenn – Not so much non-grid but solar and wind energy is very big out here. I have solar on my house. What I would like to see though is de-centralization of energy, so people can generate their own energy via their home and a battery system. The savings compared to the vast amount of energy lost due to transmission over the grid would be so much more efficient. As it is, we’re still connected to the grid and the energy we produce goes to the DWP which credits us back for it and banks unused energy. They do have battery systems but they’re still a bit expensive and still wouldn’t change being on the grid, would just provide a backup if power went out. AdLib an hour ago

Harleigh–that’s as good a theory as any. I think Soros paid Smith, too. glenn an hour ago

Murph, sounds warped enough! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO…oh, it is. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

glenn – I am past my toleration of watching one more Trump cultist speak a single word. I don’t care about them anymore, they can follow Trump into Hell, I hope they do as a matter of fact. I only want to give energy and attention to decent human beings who care about others and the country. AdLib an hour ago

Hey Harleigh! AdLib an hour ago

I wonder when the Polling Dept at Fox will be skewered and compelled to craft polls that support the Fox worldview? MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Murph–typical of the TLB. Baffle them with bullshit until they don’t know how anything works; how anything is supposed to be; what’s legal or not; etc., etc. Then after they’re buried in bullshit, declare victory! Voila! Problem solved! glenn an hour ago

Glenn,,,,when you cannot dazzle, baffle. You got it. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Spanky’s support is waning since he pulled out of the ISIS fight and abandoned the Kurds. Harleigh an hour ago

With oyu on that, Ad. Wonder hhow they justify using troops as mercenary cannon fodder for the Saudis, when they won’t protect the Kurds. Is the WH converting to Islam and only helping Muslims? I thinnk we should be told! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hellllooooo – how is everyone tonight? choicelady an hour ago

CL! Wow, Hi! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–The energy companies will fight to the death to retain their monopolies/centralization of power. It’s going to take many years, I believe, until we get solar on a large enough scale to make it cost effective for energy companies. glenn an hour ago

Harleigh….the military folk around here are tying themselves in knots to find a way to make sense of the betrayal of the kurds. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Hey PPO – how are things, down under? choicelady an hour ago

PPO – It was Barr who met with Murdoch, possibly to insist that Shep be thrown out and Fox deliver 100% propaganda support for Trump. How is it legit for the AG of the US to meet with the owner of a propaganda news channel? What legal issue would justify that? The answer is none. Barr is as crooked as Trump. AdLib an hour ago

Hey, choice…..we may have to expand to the adjacent room with this crowd. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Hi CL!!! Harleigh an hour ago

CL–So good to hear from you! How are you? glenn an hour ago

Barr is worthy of impeachment as well. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Hi Harleigh!, glenn! Murph and Adlib – good to see you. choicelady an hour ago

Doing OK here, thanks CL. Fergie has all clear from oncologists and we’re muttering along with 3 eyes, 3 arms and 3 legs between us! pinkpantheroz an hour ago
