See ya then! AdLib 2 hours ago

Hey glenn! How are you doing? AdLib 2 hours ago

Hey Ad–same old, same old, how about you? glenn 2 hours ago

glenn, Ad everyone ok? pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

PPO–Doing okay, how about you and Fergie? glenn 2 hours ago

Doing fine, in Stage 3 or 4 of keeping myself busy this week. AdLib 2 hours ago

Still hermits, still alive – just, but not listening to our Trump clone Morrissey here who wants to repopen pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Ad–Are you done with your honey-do list? glenn 2 hours ago

PPO–Does your PM have as much of a “plan” that the TLB does? IOW, no plan? glenn 2 hours ago

This is like watching a slow motion collision, as Trump tries to re-open the red states with his paid Nazi army. AdLib 2 hours ago

That’s it, glenn. NOt a clue, but chucking money everywhere. One thing the gummint is doing, mostly thanks to the States, is that the curve has leveled and new cases in Victoria are in single digits. pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

So, guys, can you tell me how this is going to work? Just like that, everybody goes back to work; no one gets sick; the stock market soars; small businesses reopen again to record crowds? Is that how it works? glenn 2 hours ago

glenn – Not yet, still have several things left but getting things done each day. Planted mellon plants and yellow and orange peppers yesterday. AdLib 2 hours ago

PPO–At least your cases are going down. I really don’t think we have leveled the curve yet; but who knows? I don’t trust one word the TLB says regarding the numbers. Actually, I don’t trust one word the TLB says, period. glenn 2 hours ago

We will find out years from now how Trump and McConnell have really looted the Treasury to make the wealthy wealthier. and just $1200 for the people. AdLib 2 hours ago

glenn, not a chance. Until the vaccine is produced and everyone gets jabbed, crowds must still be avoided. Our fools are touting the ‘herd’ immunity’ rubbish – that if we all get it in a small way, we’ll all survive. Except NO one has any immunity to this new bug. pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

glenn – This isn’t going to work. Europe is already opening up and people will not go out because most people aren’t suicidal. AdLib 2 hours ago

Ad–they’re “ironic Nazis”, dontcha know? They’re trying to show how Dem governors are acting like Nazis….you know trying to keep their citizens safe. That’s what Nazis do, you know. glenn 2 hours ago

Ad–sounds like the start of a good garden! glenn 2 hours ago

I still don’t understand that we are in a world recession, yet the Dow keeps high. Weird pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Ad–I think we’re finding out now how the TLB and the turtle have looted the Treasury. The problem is no one can seem to stop them at this point. glenn 2 hours ago

And here’s the thing about only Red states opening, most of them have tiny economies. So Trump’s fantasy of a zooming economy is mornoic. Without the East and West Coast on board? Without LA and NY and Chicago? This is just plain stupid. AdLib 2 hours ago

and now the fool is inciting anarchy pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

PPO–Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. Let’s all get sick, so we can keep infecting one another. More republiscum “logic”. glenn 2 hours ago

glenn – Uh…yeah. Ironic swastikas are not quite a thing. But unironic nazis calling themselves Dr. are. AdLib 2 hours ago

Ad–Of course it isn’t going to work. Just like “trickle down economics” doesn’t work, nor do any republiscum governments work; but that doesn’t stop them from rousing up the stupids. glenn 2 hours ago

glenn, lets all get sick, then the survivors will be immune, sorry about the 10% that didn’t make it, but they were old, colored, homeless. A neat Final Solution, eh? pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

glenn – Already have corn, tomatoes, broccoli and brussel sprouts planted too! AdLib 2 hours ago

Ad, you lost me at sprouts and Broccoli! then again, no one else would want them, so you’ll be ok!

pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

PPO–Yeah, isn’t that amazing? Wall Street keeps making money, and Main Street is unemployed. After all of this over, anyone using the Dow as an indicator of a strong economy is full of shite! glenn 2 hours ago

Paging Dr. Kildare, Paging Dr. White, Paging Dr. House! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Ad–Bingo! The TLB and republiscum’s plan is just plain stupid. Hopefully, in November, we’ll fix stupid. glenn 2 hours ago

PPO – China’s GNP has crashed, first time since the 70’s I think that it hasn’t grown. 10% of US workers unemployed. Money just gone out of consumers who are faar from ready to spend again. What Trump and the greedy are overlooking is when “opening up” doesn’t bring the economy up, there will be another Dow crash at the daunting reality of being in a real bad recession. AdLib 2 hours ago

Ad–whoda thunk we’d have categories of Nazis now? Ironic and unironic! What a concept! glenn 2 hours ago

glenn – In the midst of chaos like this, the crooks like Trump and McConnell betray the country and steal with both hands. AdLib 2 hours ago

PPO–Makes my blood boil. WTH does “liberate” mean? Have I ever told you all how much I hate the TLB? glenn 2 hours ago

PPO – Check out my new article today. Trump is ot doing this as a one-off. DeVos’ family and others like The Kochs are probably funding this astroturf “rebellion” and establshing Trump’s fascist army…to get very ugly when Trump is “cheated” out of re-election. AdLib 2 hours ago

Ad, if the Dow can’t see we’re already in recession, they have blinkers on. And I’m starting to think that trump and mcconnell don’t care if they are defeated in Nov. They have made their pile, and I am worried that the US will be so glad to get rid of them, they won’t be prosecuted to the full wrath of the American people. pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Ad–puleeze–When the Dow crashes again, it will be the Dem governors’ faults. They didn’t open up quickly enough; they opened up too quickly; they wore the wrong color tie; maybe even wore a tan suit. But, it will be the fault of the Dems when the economy crashes again, and COVID-19 runs rampant again. glenn 2 hours ago

bare arms, glenn, bare arms! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

glenn – It’s kind of magical thinking, that as long as the wealthy are showered with trillions, all will be well. This is a consumer driven economy and with money once again being drained from the nation and the 99%, this recession will get very ugly over the Summer and Fall. And Trump will be getting even more insane and dangerous as the election becomes more obviously out of his grasp. AdLib 2 hours ago

PPO–Yup. Not only steal, destroy any shred of integrity in our government, and pack the federal courts. Just what republiscums have been working towards for many years. glenn 2 hours ago

…glenn, and then leave it to the Dems to make the hard decisions to fix the US. Again pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Ad–we MUST defeat the TLB and every republiscum possible by a landslide. Anything else will bring on just the kind of chaos and ugliness the TLB thrives on. glenn 2 hours ago

Everybody got their $1200 smackeroos yet? pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

PPO – Heh! I was never big on brussel sprouts, they are unpleasant when steamed or boiled but my wife has always grilled them and my daughter loves them. I like them too. As for broccoli, always like it on my salads but not as much cooked. AdLib 2 hours ago

I forgive Cubby Broccoli, but only because of the Bond Movies! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

glenn – Never more obvious how sick our economy is when mass deaths grow and the Dow goes up. AdLib 2 hours ago

PPO–That’s a big worry. If the TLB and the turtle are not prosecuted to the full extent of the law; then all of this shite will happen again. glenn 2 hours ago

PPO–I’m with you, everything else except the brussel sprouts. glenn 2 hours ago

glenn – Sure, Trump will blame the Govs but that wn’t change anyone’s mind. People will be unhappy with him as they already are and they will want to punish him at the polls in Nov. AdLib 2 hours ago

PPO–Yes, the Dems will try to fix the US, and the republiscums will whine and holler and lie and spin. Hopefully, they will not have enough power to do anything. glenn 2 hours ago

If the Repubs are not decimated in Nov, something is seriously wrong. pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

glenn – I think a Blue Tsunami is on the way, in an economic disaster like this, a majority of voters always wants to “throw the bums out”, and the party in power is the GOP. Or the Nazis. It’s hard to tell them apart. AdLib 2 hours ago

Ad–Brussel sprouts are the “in” thing nowadays. All of the younger generation is coming up with many different ways to cook them. I still don’t like them. glenn 2 hours ago

Oh, BTW, I felt a bit seedy last week. I think it was Covid 13, but it could have been 14. pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Very few people have gotten their $1200. glenn, did you get it? AdLib 2 hours ago

Ad–Well, it only goes to show the inequality that Bernie has been talking about for years. The Dow is rising, but everybody else is either unemployed or dying. IOW, the rich get richer, and the rest of us live on their crumbs. glenn 2 hours ago

glenn, smother them in the hottest sauce you can bear. You get the ‘nutrition’ but not the ammonia pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

PPO – You know Cubby’s family invented broccoli, right? “Broccoli. Cubby Broccoli.” AdLib 2 hours ago

DUH pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Ad–I hope the TLB gets punished so badly at the polls in Nov! glenn 2 hours ago

glenn – To revive the rule of law in this country, I think it’s vital to prosecute Trump and all of the crooks arund him including McConnell, Barr, Pompeo, Kushner, etc. AdLib 2 hours ago

PPO–Problem is, I don’t like hot sauce either!

glenn 2 hours ago

Ah, how about a strong cheese and garlic sauce? pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Ad, for sure they all need to be prosecuted, but will the new Government budget for the billions it will cost? Point to ponder pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

PPO and Ad–yeah, if we don’t have a blue tsunami in November, there is something seriously wrong! The Nazis/GOP have to be defeated all over again! glenn 2 hours ago

Ad–I agree. We need to have as many Congressional hearings and lawsuits as necessary to put those bastards behind bars, or six feet under! glenn 2 hours ago

PPO – Thankfully, Trump can’t corrupt elections in all states or even all swing states because we don’t have a nationalized system. Also, thankfully, Dem governors are now in place in nearly all swing states and they won’t stand by to let the election be corrupted. But in states with Repubs in charge and electronic voting machines, the vte will very possibly be tainted. AdLib 2 hours ago

glenn – I didn’t know that, brussel sprouts are cool with the young folks? I’ve got 6 planted, I could make a fortune! AdLib 2 hours ago

PPO–I do love cheese and garlic. It’s the texture of Brussel sprouts I can’t stand. They seem to grow bigger and bigger as I chew, and I just can’t beat to swallow them! I feel the same way about lima beans. glenn 2 hours ago

Ad, probably. Hopefully not enough cheating to deny JOe. I’m glad Bernie endorsed Joe at last pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

PPO – It hopefully wasn’t COVID-666. AdLib 2 hours ago

PPO–It would be worth every penny to prosecute them! So what if the deficit goes up? We’ll get it down again with a responsible Dem president; but those evil people have to be prosecuted! glenn 2 hours ago

What do we think of the latest Press Sex Doll, er, Secretary. pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Ad–Yeah, the republiscums are going to pull out all the stops to suppress/taint the votes for sure. glenn 2 hours ago

agree glen, and there’s always RICO! Heh Heh pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

PPO – Any amount of billions would be a valuable investment in returning the country to the rule of law. And we can always seize all their ill gotten gains, we may make a profit as we did with Manafort! AdLib 2 hours ago

I see they dug up Kellyanne Cacophonix for a quick outing. Pathetic pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

PPO–Oh, I’m sure it was only COVID-1 if you only felt seedy. For heaven’s sake, where does the TLB find people like SmellyAnne? glenn 2 hours ago

Ad–No, I haven’t gotten my check yet, and I have direct deposit. I checked today and don’t have it. glenn 2 hours ago

Shady Palms, glenn

pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

glenn – Roasted properly, the sprouts are so tender. AdLib 2 hours ago

PPO – Yep, there will be cheating but it can only be a little without exposing itself and the ones doing the rigging. And the election in November will be a huge majrity against Trump and his crime family, the GOP. AdLib an hour ago

Ad–Oh yes. My daughter, and my older granddaughters think they’re the best thing since sliced bread! They made them six different ways during Christmas and kept trying to get me to eat them. I wasn’t a good example for my youngest granddaughter, but I truly hate Brussel sprouts. BTW, I like broccoli better when it’s cooked than raw. glenn an hour ago

Maybe Florida will turn blue this time, seeing all the Magats are at the beach again! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

No checks to anyone I know, I’ve also heard the majority of the money for businesses went to big companies and people in Red states. How does Trump think that could possibly help him in the election. Red states are already voting for him and he can’t win with just them. AdLib an hour ago

PPO–I think the latest press sex doll is just adorable….and so informative when she told us we have the best testing system in the world! That’s why we’ll be able to reopen the economy soon! glenn an hour ago

HAs it been proven that the USA warned Israel about a possible pandemic last November? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–There you go..RICO or income tax evasion! glenn an hour ago
