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

Hi, Ad. Any Rupublicans around? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

hi glenn pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hey PPO, can’t see all the way to the top, so if you’re here, Ad, “hi” to you too. glenn an hour ago

Ad’s avatar is there, but quiet so far pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Okay, fixed it. So, hi to you. glenn an hour ago

Yeah, I’ve been worried about him this week; hope he’s not close to the wildfires. I think they’re near LA this time. glenn an hour ago

Wasn’t the World Series a gas? Not the games, the fan’s! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

So….how are you PPO? glenn an hour ago

OMG–Loved i! Lock him up! And did you see the fan on live TV who said we have an asshole in the fucking White House? Priceless! glenn an hour ago

Not too bad, glenn, muttering along wit 3 eyes, 3 legs and 3 arms between us and managing pinkpantheroz an hour ago

buy that guy a beer! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hey hey! AdLib an hour ago

Didn’t watch the World Series, but did watch the MLS playoffs, and disappointed to see my Atlanta United team lose. glenn an hour ago

sorry to see Beto puling the plug, but he really didn’t have a big chance. Senate would be better pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Glad to hear you’re managing, PPO. My best to your Fergie. glenn an hour ago

Ad–you’re here! glenn an hour ago

hiya Ad pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Murph! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Thanks for your concern, glenn. Two fires have been just a few miles away but we’re not in the hills which is where the fires burn so we aren’t as concerned about them coming towards us. AdLib an hour ago

PPO–sorry to say but Beto, with his gun buyback plan, would never have made it! glenn an hour ago

Still, Ad a few miles is quite close enough! Embers can fly pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hey Murph! glenn an hour ago

Loved the World Series and as I often root for underdogs, very pleased to see the Nats win so convincingly in Game 7. AdLib an hour ago

Ad–I hope you are able to stay safe. glenn an hour ago

And oh yeah, watching Trump’s face drop when he relized he was being booed was the biggest home run of the night! AdLib an hour ago

realized AdLib an hour ago

priceless, Ad. Scurried away after the 7th pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hey all. Ad, glad that Glenn asked you about the CA inferno…..what needs to be done….what can be done? This is insane. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad–yeah, out of his bubble and into the real world. As the kids used to say, “Too bad, so sad.” glenn an hour ago

Murph–we have to rake the forest floor, dontcha know? glenn an hour ago

Ad, Loved that the Ownners didn’t want his orange puss anywhere near their box. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Beto is a smart man, I think his timing is good, especially if he would reconsider running for Senate against John Cornyn. He’s a good guy, wishing him the best (I contributed to him in 2018 when he ran against Cruz). AdLib an hour ago

Ad…I support Beto as a candidate for the Senate. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

AdLib an hour ago

Ad–I agree about Beto. He’s young yet, so I hope he gets some more experience under his belt. A Senate win would be great. glenn an hour ago

good one, Ad. I saw one where his Secret Service guy looked worried when the boos rang out. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad…was that face tied directly to the booing….the ones I have seen seem to have him ignoring it, standing and waving. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad–Thanks for that pic! glenn an hour ago

PPO – Yep, I stayed up much of the night when they said we could have winds up to 80 MPH, to make sure embers didn’t catch the house on fire. Thankfully, we didn’t down here in LA but they got hit hard up north. AdLib an hour ago

I think that’s the ‘lock him Up’ shot. If not, it should be! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

I see the Nats are supposed to go to the WH sometime next week. Too bad. Wish they’d stay away. But I don’t want to take anything away from their victory. glenn an hour ago

Murph – The photo is from a VF article titled, “All That Booing Revealed the True Face of Donald Trump” – https://www.vanityfair.com/style/2019/10/donald-trump-world-series-boo-face AdLib an hour ago

glenn, agree. I hope they wait for an invite from President Pelosi pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Thanks glenn! We should be fine but so many folks and/or homes in danger. Climate Change is so in our faces now, deniall is suicidal. AdLib an hour ago

denial AdLib an hour ago

Ad–di?hd you stay up to hose down your house? Or just keep a watch? Are you prepared for an evacuation, if necessary? Don’t forget your insurance papers if you have to evacuate, which I hope you don’t have to, but it’s always good to be prepared. glenn an hour ago

did glenn an hour ago

PPO–HA! Pence is awfully quiet lately, isn’t he? glenn an hour ago

I won’t be around in 2050, but it doesn’t look good for low lying areas around the world, or very dry bits pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad…I trust VF MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Murph – It’s hard to say what can be done in the short term. We don’t have rains like we used to at times in the Summer and early Fall. Then the Santa Ana (desert) winds come in and dry up and blow sparks to start fires more often. It used to be one fire or two, now it’s many big fires each year. AdLib an hour ago

glenn, hiding under Mother’s skirts wondering how he can untangle himself from his Godfadda pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad…that is a good summary……what then can be done? MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad, also there’s less snowfall in the Rockies, leading to less water for Ca. A Worry. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–forgive me if this is a stupid question, but years ago, when CA had droughts, wasn’t there talk of “seeding” clouds to help rain? Is that a thoroughly stupid idea? glenn an hour ago

I did get pissed off at Mourning Jo-Jo who whined about people chanting “Lock Him Up” at the World Series, as if it was wrong as Trump urging a rabid, racist crowd to chant it about minorities. AdLib an hour ago

glenn – Beto will be back, he is a national name and a man of conscience. AdLib an hour ago

PPO–So, if the TLB is convicted, would we call Mother the First Mother? glenn an hour ago

Morning Joe’s hypocricy has been paraded under a searchlight. Mikky the Mouth now just says ‘WOW’ every now and again. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–agree. As much as I admire Mrs. Obama for “we go high”, sometimes you just have to say, “fuck it”, I’m going as low as the TLB. glenn an hour ago

Ad….the state borders an ocean…..water that would need to be desalinated, yes, but lots and lots of water…….is anyone thinking along those lines. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

glenn – No, I didn’t hose down the roof, the fires aren’t that close and, not that I thought of them as protecting us from fires, I have solar panels on my roof so less roof exposed to catch fire. Hey, the solar industry should tout that in Cali! AdLib an hour ago

glenn, if TLB goes, White Fang sohould follow, leaving the POTUS seat to Nancy pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–Yes, I hope we hear from Beto for many years. glenn an hour ago

Murph – I think rebuilding in likely fire zones should be limited but mainly, we need to reduce warming as a long term solution. Not sure what we can really do in the short term. AdLib an hour ago

PPO–So far, though, I haven’t seen much that ties White Fang (love that name) to the Ukrainian scheme. But, yes, I do love the idea of President Pelosi. Republican heads would explode! glenn an hour ago

Glenn….I agree with you…..the political mindset of most Americans is “down and dirty” not high minded. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Murph, our State of Victoria commissioned and installed a desalination plant at huge costs, then it rained for years! However, now it is needed, so a good investment after all pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO – Yes, So Cal gets a lot of water from the Colorado River so lesser snowfall in the Rockies is worrisome. AdLib an hour ago

Ad–do your solar panels cover all of your electric costs? glenn an hour ago

ad….I agree with the rebuilding limitations, much as I do with blocking building in flood plains here. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

glenn – Yes, I remember the cloud seeding suggestions and I do think that may be an idea worth reviving. If we could at least get occassional rain in the Summer and early Fall, it could limit these fires. AdLib an hour ago

PPO….yes the plants are costly but in recent years as tech has improved costs have come down….some. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad, Murph, I would renegotiate all Water sales contracts with companies like Coca cola, major cotton growers and vineyards to pay more for OUR resources. pinkpantheroz an hour ago
