Vox Populi, our weekly live chat about the week’s events begins tonight at 7:00pm PDT. Hope to see you then! AdLib 18 hours ago

Hey, Ad, is it just you and me? glenn 17 hours ago

Hey glenn! PPO is nearby I think. AdLib 17 hours ago

looks like it so far, ad pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

hi glenn! pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

Are you and your family going stir crazy yet? glenn 17 hours ago

How is life at home treatng you, glenn and PPO? AdLib 17 hours ago

sorry, I’m late – phone call pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

Hey PPO–glad you’re here. glenn 17 hours ago

Life at home is same old, same old for me. You and Fergie doing okay, PPO? glenn 17 hours ago

So far, we haven’t murdered each other! cocooned all week, just out once in my new SUV for essentials. so far, had it 3 weeks, 15 miles on the clock! pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

There have been moments here and there but for the most part, everyone here is keeping busy, relaxing a lot and trying to accomplish things every day. That “Honey-Do” list is sure getting shorter every week! AdLib 17 hours ago

sad to see 980 deaths in US overnight. and that’s the official list, bet there are more pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

Lots of fixing things around the house for me lately. If only I could only fix the White House right now… AdLib 17 hours ago

PPO– Well, that’s good news. Awww, too bad you can’t take your SUV out more. glenn 17 hours ago

WEll, it is just transportation, with easy access for Fergie. It will see us out! pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

I read on twitter that It is off on another rant in fluent gibberish pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

What was creepy this week was the photo, so like the Nazi ones, of the mass graves on that island. pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

PPO – It looks like there was a brief dip and then a bounce up. And Trump wants to “open up the country” in 3 weeks? AdLib 17 hours ago

Ad–There you go…getting that “Honey-Do” list pared down is a good thing. I have to admit, I have not done anything I should have! I have closets I should clean out; and speaking of cleaning….since my cleaning ladies can’t come, one would think I would take the time to clean my house. After all, I have plenty of time. However, one would be wrong. Every morning I get up and say, “I should clean”, and then I spend the day reading. I must admit, I have spent a lot of time making and cleaning up meals. I’m not used to eating 2-3 meals every day at home. Oh well…. glenn 17 hours ago

We’re like you, glenn! So much to do, but inertia holds us back. That and limited strength, wind and motivation! pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

PPO – Yes, that was nauseating, seeing a mass grave in America in 2020. And yet, the Repub governors in many states are acting like it is still a hoax that anyone loyal to Trump can’t believe in. I think many Red states will be in terrible states as the Blue states are declining in infections and deaths. AdLib 17 hours ago

PPO–I truly believe the numbers are being suppressed in many places. We may never know the true number. Also, have you heard the latest republiscum excuse? People are not dying of CV-19; they’re dying of “pre-existing conditions”. Damn dumb republiscum…these people were living with their pre-existing conditions, but the CV-19 is what is killing them. glenn 17 hours ago

glenn – I get it, believe me. It s a bit disorienting to be housebound for so long, sometimes it’s easiest to just say, “I’ve got lots of time to do that, I’ll just do it later.” AdLib 17 hours ago

Ad–Hopefully, we’ll be able to fix the WH in November. However, that doesn’t help people dying…. glenn 17 hours ago

glenn, i read somewhere that any home death will not be recorded as being a result of the virus. pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

PPO–It’s the old adage…the less time you have the more you get accomplished (for some people anyway). Conversely, the more time you have the less you get done. As you say, limited motivation. After all, it’s not like we’re going to have any visitors! glenn 17 hours ago

Australia is apparently getting better, but everyone is warning not to become complacent, or it will flare again pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

You have to congratulate Jacintha Ardern and New Zealand.. No ob CV deaths….. One! pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

glenn – No question that one thing Trump has accomplished is hindering the testing and genuine numbers on the infected and dead. But such suppression of the truth is useless when states are picking up the slack on testing and when people are witnessing what is going on with their oown friends and family. I have seen so many people on social media share that their mother or father has died from Covid-19, it’s heartbreaking. AdLib 17 hours ago

Ad–yes the red states are going to see an increase, I think. And…if the TLB gets his way, and we “open up” the country, then I think we are going to have to go through this all over again. I really, really hate the TLB! And, I don’t hate many people, but this person is number one on my hate list. glenn 17 hours ago

glenn, he is the first of two that I utterly hate, the other is McConnell. pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

PPO–You’re correct. Complacency is going to be the death of a lot of people. It will be interesting to see how many churches will be packed on Easter day. glenn 17 hours ago

PPO–Yes, New Zealand’s PM is amazing! glenn 17 hours ago

glenn – Absolutely! As horrible as Covid-19 is, it will eventually pass. But if Trump is re-elected, our nation and the world is doomed to the U.S. being a vicious autocracy for untold years to come. Covid-19 and Trump are both deadly viruses in this world but Trump represents the longest term damage. It’s sad to say that with so many suffering and dying now but he has helped cause this too. AdLib 17 hours ago

All I can say, g, is God help those misguided cultists who get suckered into mortal danger by these charlatans. pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

Hey Harleigh! AdLib 17 hours ago

Harleigh! pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

Still alive! Harleigh 17 hours ago

A step in the right direction, H! pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

PPO – The 1918 pandemic was worse in the second wave, probably because of that feeling that it was over when it wasn’t. That will probably happen here in the US with Trump desperate to get the economy and stock market back up to get re-elected, no matter how many lives he has to sacrfice. AdLib 17 hours ago

Ad–that’s what I hate the most! Because of the TLB’s ineptitude, cruelty, and stupidity, too many families have suffered unnecessary heartbreak. I read today of a mother and son who died within a week of each other; and there are many more stories out there just like that. glenn 17 hours ago

Harleigh–glad to see you’re here! glenn 17 hours ago

I don’t understand why the Markets aren’t dropping like stones. A worry. pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

thanks! this is fucking scary Harleigh 17 hours ago

PPO–Yeah, my top three are the TLB, the turtle, and Lindsey. glenn 17 hours ago

glenn – It makes me wonder if Blue states may start thinking about limiting entryby people from Red states after Blue states have flattened the curve and Red states will be steeply increasing infection rates. AdLib 17 hours ago

Ad–indeed. The TLB’s autocratic tendencies are running rampant. The firing of the inspector generals is scary! glenn 17 hours ago

The redneck evangelical states are gonna get fucking creamed. Harleigh 17 hours ago

Hey Murph! How are you? glenn 17 hours ago

Wow – full house tonight. Hi everyone! choicelady 17 hours ago

Hi Murph. CL Harleigh 17 hours ago

glenn – That’s a terrble story. And people are dying at home, some dying just after being released from the hospital. Trump always lies, in his inauguration he said he was bringing an “end to the carnage”. It’s always the opposite of whatever he claims, he’s more like a carnage machine. AdLib 17 hours ago

Ad, I know we only have 7 states here, but we have shut the Interstate borders, with permission needed for essential supplies to cross. Travel is also limited. A NSW State Minister has resigned because he ignored a travel restriction to o to his holiday home. He was fined $1000 by the police. pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

Hey Harleigh! choicelady 17 hours ago

Hey Murph! AdLib 17 hours ago

Hey CL! AdLib 17 hours ago

CL, Murph,! pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

Hi Murph, Hi Adlib, PPO and GLENN!!! choicelady 17 hours ago

hi hon Harleigh 17 hours ago

PPO–Saw a screenshot from foxsocalledbusinessnews today that showed the markets had the largest increase since the 1930’s (which would be coming out of the Great Depression) and a chyron underneath that said 16 million Americans have lost their jobs in the past three weeks. If that doesn’t show that the stock market is not an indicator of a healthy economy, I don’t know what does. glenn 17 hours ago

CL–Hey, how are you? glenn 17 hours ago

PPO – The markets staying up right now means to me, that $2 trillion is being funneled to corporations more than we know. And the Fed Chair is using a firehose to shower them in billions, which we also aren’t hearing about. AdLib 17 hours ago

Hello everyone……sad I had to toss away my “Bernie Baby Burn” buttons this week. MurphTheSurf3 17 hours ago

PPO–He should’ve been fined way more than $1000. glenn 17 hours ago

AD, when will that faucet dry up? pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

love how sSpanky’s miracle cure is unsubstantiated bullshit that can kill you. jebus Harleigh 17 hours ago

Murph. Well, I do wish he did more than cease the campaign. Bernie needs to endorse JOe, and throttle down his feral Bros pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

Ad–As many people are saying on social media, it’s amazing that we have money to prop up billionaires, yet no money to help the people who are actually keeping the country running! If this doesn’t do anything else, perhaps it will take the scales off of people’s eyes about the republiscum party. glenn 17 hours ago

About this crossing state line things… CPS has been trying to pin a case on a woman who has LITERALLY done nothing wrong. Her nasty ex and family are reviving charges ALREADY dismissed 4 years ago in both TX and AL. But CPS pays no mind to that. So they have seen fit, this WEEK, to send the boy to the abusive family in TX. They drove up here against every state order and are driving him BACK to TX just as they’re about to peak in crisis mode. Can anyone give me a route out of this nightmare? Even her great attorney is at a loss what to do. choicelady 17 hours ago

glenn – There are few guardrails left now in our democracy, other than the Dem House. The SCOTUS just proved that they are a corrupt tool of Trump and the GOP by forcing Americans in WI to decide between possible death and voting. It is pretty scary (and I renew my call for Dems expanding the corrupt SCOTUS if they take Congress and the WH). AdLib 17 hours ago

Too make it a Dem majority on the SCOTUS, that is. AdLib 17 hours ago

Ad – I’m for expanding the court, but how do we get around FDR’s court packing failure? choicelady 17 hours ago

Murph–yeah a lot of people are sad about tossing the Bernie memorabilia away. However, I see Biden is pushing for the Medicare eligibility age to be lowered to 60; for free college, and something else that Bernie has been pushing for (I just can’t remember what it is). It’s a senior moment…. glenn 17 hours ago

Healthcare, glenn? pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

PPO – As much as it concerns me to see such powers in action, it is an emergency and if we know that some Red states are virtual petri dishes of Coronavirus infection and death, they may need to be isolated from healthy Blue states, for a limited period of course. AdLib 17 hours ago

glenn – I’m NOT a fan of free college, and I don[‘t think that’s on the agenda although debt forgiveness IS. What of all the thousands who went before who PAID their debts? This needs a lot of deep thinking. choicelady 17 hours ago

ad most of them don’t borer blue states. Harleigh 17 hours ago

CL–Good heavens! That sounds horrible! What are the charges, and why is CPS in CA paying attention to TX charges? Very strange. Does the TX family have a judge in their pocket or are they extremely wealthy? glenn 17 hours ago

Would Americans put up with such a restriction on travel, Ad? pinkpantheroz 17 hours ago

Murph – Somehow, we’ll have to find a way to get over that even though he had no path at all, Bernie dropped out…technically…but is still staying in. Can I just say this once? What a dick. AdLib 17 hours ago

Ad–Yeah, the guardrails have been not only pushed over, they have been bent out of shape. Hopefully, we can repair them in Nov. glenn 17 hours ago

There are NO charges per the dispostion. CPS is determined to over ride the judge (who’s awful too) but they refuse to tell her what she has done. I am NOT MAKING THAT UP. They say they proved their case yet refuse to tell her what she’s “guilty” of. It’s Kafka writ large. choicelady 17 hours ago
