Hey glenn! AdLib an hour ago

Hey Ad–Woo-hoo! I’m number 1! On VOX, that is! How are you? glenn an hour ago

Worried for a sec! Hi all! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

You just beat PPO by a matter of seconds! Welcome glenn! AdLib an hour ago

Hey PPO–How are you? How’s Fergie? glenn an hour ago

PPO – Why were you worried? AdLib an hour ago

No sign of Vox when I logged in! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–Yeah, same thing here; I had to scroll up to get Ad’s greeting! glenn an hour ago

Weird. Maybe it didn’t refresh from earlier? AdLib an hour ago

Hey Murph! glenn an hour ago

Hey Murph! AdLib an hour ago

This is the age of angst! MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Hello Ad, Glenn and PPO MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

glenn, Fergie is OK, as well as anyone with her litany of chronic problems. But We’re staying in and not believing it is OK to go out. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hiya Murph. How are the limbs doing? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

So…I voted in GA’s primary Tuesday. I had a much different experience than those in minority counties. Didn’t have to take my mask off to verify i.d.; free glove to touch the machine; free hand sanitizer after; in and out in less than 20 minutes! What a difference a demographic makes. I live in a city that is 80% white. glenn an hour ago

Trump is going to tell all his fans in Tulsa to drink the Kool-Aid he’s going to serve…but they have to sign a waiver that if they die because it’s poisoned, they can’t sue him. AdLib an hour ago

glenn, wow! so no 4 hour wait in rain? funny, that pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO…always impressed with your compassionate care for Fergie….ain’t love grand. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

PPO–Hanging in there is a statement of faith nowadays. I’m pretty much doing the same thing. Only going to places I absolutely have to–voting; grocery store. glenn an hour ago

Murph, simply, she is my life. Period pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO – You and Fergie are too smart to buy that BS, iintended to let people get infected and die to sacrifice themselves for the wealthy’s profits. AdLib an hour ago

PPO…my arm is on the mend. PT next week. I cannot raise my arm any higher than midchest but that is big improvement. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad–Why didn’t Jones think of that? glenn an hour ago

Murph–good news you’re on the mend. glenn an hour ago

Ad, true. Football has restarted, all codes. stadia are filling up to 25% capacity. But what about the queues for the concessions? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO….She is my life….what a tribute!

MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

glenn – That’s very enlightening, glad you were able to stay safe and I knew you’d be out there voting! But the difference between your neighborhood and the black neighborhoods with 5 hour waits to vote are so blatant. AdLib an hour ago

Glenn…we are all making do as best we can. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

PPO–Funny, that, indeed. Oh, and it wasn’t raining where I was. glenn an hour ago

PPO–So, is the 25% capacity mandated, or is that just how many fans are showing up? As for the concessions, doesn’t one have to take risks for a beer? glenn an hour ago

I have been having a horrified giggle at all the Karen videos coming out of the woodwork. Where have these slugs been hiding? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–Awww, you bring tears to my eyes! glenn an hour ago

Murph – Hope the pain in your arm has gotten better. AdLib an hour ago

glenn, feral footie fans are universally blind to safety to get to their bevvys. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

glenn – Trump is a more experienced killer than Jim Jones was. AdLib an hour ago

Ad….the pain is tolerable…I resist the pain killer meds….too many side effects. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad–yeah, the difference was astounding, although I don’t know why it should be. I wrote a short post about the entire experience in reply to your short post about voting in GA. glenn an hour ago

glenn, mandated, but I don’t know how they can police it pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–the slugs have been hiding under their rocks, and for some reason, have decided to come out from under them. glenn an hour ago

slug pellets in November! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–They can only sell so many tickets? Perhaps they need to borrow the RTLB’s waiver to fill the seats to capacity! glenn an hour ago

PPO – Watching Maddow and infections up 25% or more in a third of states, it’s really going to explode here in about 2-3 weeks. And Trump is also going to have cruise ships in Jacksonville for people to stay on. Repubs are going to all be radioactive, stay away from them! AdLib an hour ago

PPO–Much like those in the US! glenn an hour ago

glenn, perhaps, but I’m betting the authorities are kicking themselves not to have punters sign a waiver! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–Yup, over 100,000 and counting! glenn an hour ago

Aren’t many states seeing a spike after Memorial weekend? Who knew! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO – The way it usually works, the Karens have been at it for a while, just being filmed now. But there also seems to be a spike in freaked out older white women throwing tantrums at people of color. Did you see the Karen who grabbed a young woman and she slapped her hard? The narration by the guy shooting it is great too. AdLib an hour ago

Imagine the hubris of Trump who so needs a crowd to deliver worshipful cries of joy and deriding anger to the “enemy” that he is so willing to place his people (including himself and his family) into a massive incubator so that he is “properly” nominated…..Greek Tragedies have demonstrated the impact of Hubris…utter destruction…. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad–oh, for goodness sakes, what is wrong with you? Dontcha know that COVID-19 is over? I mean, it must be, right? It’s warm weather; and the RTLB and his VP said it would be over by now, so isn’t it? glenn an hour ago

Murph – Yep, painkillers especially over a long period of time, mess you up. AdLib an hour ago

Very satisfying, Ad. Also the asian dude who whupped the racist on the crosswalk, knoched him out, pullled him off the road and said sorry! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

glenn – I’m going to reply to it! AdLib an hour ago

PPO–Exactly…the players are the ones who should have signed the waiver. glenn an hour ago

glenn, there are probably deals on the side there to get the Mon… er… season restarted. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–That video of the Karen who got slapped was karma in action. Don’t know if it’s actually true or not, but many people commented that the slapper wasn’t Hispanic, but Native American. “Go back to your own country, indeed.” glenn an hour ago

Here in Mo. the governor and his cabinet are an interesting crowd…….really guarding the state well…….impressive….asking the hospitals to lead the way and to govern policy and response. Businesses are taking social isolation seriously..however the every day person is acting like it’s all good and are pretending there is no problem. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Murph – I look at it as the “Killing the Golden Goose” mentality. Trump is panicked, is depressed and freaked out. He sees his polls failing. He needs his “gold” right now, the attention, the emotional boost from his cultists cheering him, the feeling that he can win so he will kill the golden goose to squeeze out all he can get right now. AdLib an hour ago

Murph–stay strong! Sometimes living a better life through chemicals doesn’t necessarily work. glenn an hour ago

Ad….good analysis…..a bit early here someone made a comparison with him and Jones……fitting. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad, isn’t everyone in tulsa telling him to stay out of there? Tulsa should insist on the money up front. That will stop them pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–priorities, priorities! glenn an hour ago

Glenn….it is a balancing act….enough pain relief to get what needs doing done and to do PT but not so much as to get hooked. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

glenn – Thankfully, I hear that there is no spike or 2nd wave from Kudlow who also assured in Feb that they had Covid airtight under control. SO I’m gong to lick everyne’s ice cream at the county fair this weekend! AdLib an hour ago

Murph–interesting about your governor. Good for him! glenn an hour ago

Murph, that is delicate for sure. Take care with it. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO – Yes, I have to admit, I’ve watched both of those videos multiple times. I know that the way we beat these racists is by avoiding returning their violence but seeing people defend themselves and knock out racists…how can you not enjoy that? AdLib an hour ago

Glenn…the governor ended up in the job because the original lt. gov. had to resign and then the gov had to resign….scandals…..so he moved on up…a down state farmer/rancher who was in the state legislatureo on and off for 30 years. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Love that T-Mobile is boycotting Tucker Carlson and Fox News. they must be changing Pampers every hour there pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–The RTLB is certainly panicking right now. I do believe that he thinks (using the RTLB and “thinks” in the same sentence is a stretch, I know) he can whip up his base and win again. It seems, though, that most Americans have finally seen his act one too many times now, and are just plain sick of him. glenn an hour ago

Murph – That’s surprising but good to hear. Though we all saw what happened at The Lake of the Ozarks and in other red states as well, where wearing a mask is seen as a betrayal of Trump. Don’t know how those two things can coexist successfully together. AdLib an hour ago

PPO…Tulsa is having a fierce resurgency with COVID……a trump rally is not good news. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad…..the gov actually closed down access to two towns there with State Troopers when they refused to comply with the State Health Dept policies. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Yep, Trump is a cult leader like Jones, willing to kill all of his minions because he sees them as worker ants. AdLib an hour ago

PPO–I think there’s actually a petition to the Mayor of Tulsa asking him to refuse to let the RTLB come. However, the mayor has resorted to the old “free speech” thingy saying that the RTLB should be allowed to speak. I agree, ALL places where the RTLB is planning to rally should tell the RTLB that they want their money upfront, or no permits will be issued. glenn an hour ago

Wow. Ad, surely it can be stopped then. Or are they still so afraid of the bullying coward? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad…Better to die than to live without Trump as the President. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Hey, Tulse, do what they did for the convention : Social separation, No mask, no entry, limit crowd. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Murph–You are smart to modify your meds. That’s what messed up my brother so bad. Too many meds working against each other, plus he is not the most positive person. glenn an hour ago

Ad–Yes, “Dr.” Kudlow has assured us again about COVID, so I’m sure you can go out and do whatever you wish this weekend! glenn an hour ago

The mayor in Tulsa was wetting himself to try and get Trump to have this Deathfest there. So, it’s a done deal and won’t be stopped. It’s next weekend. AdLib an hour ago

PPO….such a move would require the Tulsa admin being willing to take on the Trump organization….despite how smart your idea is…..obedience to teh Dear Leader comes firt. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad and PPO–Plus, since so many of today’s racists are actually “outing” themselves on their social media posts, that several of them have lost their jobs! It’s about time that blatant racism has consequences, other than “that’s just their opinion.” glenn an hour ago

I hate to drop out so early but I am very tired tonight. This arm is mending but the work arounds are exhausting. Wishing you all a good week. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Murph–WOW! Correct me if I’m wrong, but your governor is a repub isn’t he? glenn an hour ago

Sadly, You’re right, Murph. Ah well, it will be somewhere for the NASCAR MAGAts to happily infect each other. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Get well soon, Murph, cheers for now pinkpantheroz an hour ago

So do we think that Trump can do enough racist things to scare white women into voting for him? AdLib an hour ago

Murph–you have a good week as well. Hope the pain abates as you heal. Take care! glenn an hour ago
