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

Don’t ask me about Arizona directly, but the Arizona Republic is Phoenix and the Arizona Daily Star is Tucson. I’m catching up myself. Khirad 6 hours ago

Ah, got it! AdLib 6 hours ago

It’s only 105 fahrenheit here. Khirad 5 hours ago

Ouch! AdLib 5 hours ago

Wasn’t it hotter when Trump was there? He brings his own hell with him. AdLib 5 hours ago

Hey PPO! AdLib 5 hours ago

Hi, Ad, G41 pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

G41? AdLib 5 hours ago

someone was from Tucson guest41 pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

Oh! I think that may be Khirad and he may be logged out. AdLib 5 hours ago

How are things going your way, PPO? AdLib 5 hours ago

Ah, I think Khirad is having a problem pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

Not too great here in Victoria. There has been an unswing in cases and they’re panic buying TP again! pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

hi glenn pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

hi Khirad pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

Khirad – If you’re having an issue logging on, you may want to clear the cookies in your browser then cose and restart it. That may solve it. AdLib 5 hours ago

I think I’m back, Khirad 5 hours ago

close AdLib 5 hours ago

Hello everyone. Hope everyone is doing well. glenn 5 hours ago

Good! AdLib 5 hours ago

H glenn, how are you doing? AdLib 5 hours ago

Reimposing some restrictions here, but the numbers are puny compared to the US. Lord, you got problems! pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

PPO–That’s too bad to hear there’s been an upswing in cases. TP seems to be plentiful right now; went to the grocery store today and shelves were full! I guess here in GA the virus is gone! /s/ glenn 5 hours ago

Can I say liberals are stupid for pulling dow statues that aren’t racist? Goddamn I hate my own side sometimes. Khirad 5 hours ago

PPO – That is not good news. I would suggest folks stock up on TP, paper towels, hand soap, Purel, frozen and canned foods just in case things continue on this trajectory and we have another stay-at-home panic shopping going on. AdLib 5 hours ago

PPO–As you know, we’ve had problems since the RTLB arrived in the Oval Office! glenn 5 hours ago

Khirad, not all dumb fools are Republican MAGATS, unfortunately pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

Ad, stores here have reimposed limits, so the stocks are OK. pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

Ad–doing well, although feeling a little old. Celebrated my daughter’s 53rd birthday this week. I just can’t believe she’s that old! glenn 5 hours ago

PPO – I think the US is going to be a full on out of control pandemic but I don’t know if Govs will order stay-at-home again so people need to choose to do so while we go through this. Listen to your own common sense, defineitely not any Repub pols. AdLib 5 hours ago

glenn, Pence is an evil asshole as well. Can’t believe that WhatsHisName hasn’t called out Putin for putting bounties on the US troops with the Taliban pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

Meanwhile New Zealand… Khirad 5 hours ago

Khirad–just as the virus knows no political boundaries, neither, unfortunately, does stupidity! glenn 5 hours ago

Khirad – There are always idiots in any movement or organization and always those who feel a need to “do something” that makes them feel big to the detriment of the purpose of that group. However, this will be a blip, not a big story that continues on and on. AdLib 5 hours ago

Ad–I think both TX and FL have closed bars. Gee, who woulda thunk that being in a crowded, enclosed space with alcohol flowing freely would cause the virus to spread? glenn 5 hours ago

glenn, …..or a megachurch full of teens and no masks. Next week’s cannon fodder pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

PPO–Every single one of the RTLB’s administration are evil assholes. At this point, they have absolutely no excuse for continuing in this administration, except for the fact that they are evil. That’s it; you cannot be a decent human being and serve in this administration! glenn 5 hours ago

Hi all – took a lot of work to log in tonight. But here I am. Hope everyone is well? choicelady 5 hours ago

PPO – That’s good, hopefully that will restrict the possibilities of empty shelves but still, I think preparedness is the best path right now, to be stocked up on critical supplies just in case. AdLib 5 hours ago

Hi, cl! welcome pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

So here’s my thing. You complain the schools didn’t teach them well as you defunded them for decades? Khirad 5 hours ago

Hey, PPO – hope you’re doing well? choicelady 5 hours ago

Hi Choicelady! AdLib 5 hours ago

Hi AdLib! choicelady 5 hours ago

CL, still cocooned, new restrictions due to small upspike in cases here. pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

Khirad – that is THE point, isn’t it? Cut, cut, cut and wonder why schools don’t flourish. choicelady 5 hours ago

cl, yes, GOP ploy to keep the plebs uneducatedso they have cheap labor pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

PPO – CA is about to close back down I think. We got out for four days, now we’re back home staring at the same four walls – and each other. choicelady 5 hours ago

PPO–Yup. That the RTLB can convince people that wearing a mask is….Still can’t figure out why wearing a mask is a political statement, or what exactly their objection is…but the mask objection alone just proves to me that these people are in a cult. Talk about drinking the Kool-Aid. glenn 5 hours ago

Hi glenn – great to see you! choicelady 5 hours ago

Choicelady they cut ambassador and diplomatic protection and complained about Benhazi for six years… Khirad 5 hours ago

CL–Hey! So glad you’re here tonight. glenn 5 hours ago

glenn – if the Terminator can wear a mask, ANYONE can wear a mask. Arnold quit his gym over people disregarding that. choicelady 5 hours ago

glenn, so right. I wonder of any cultist will be wheeled into the operating room and tell all the surgeons and nurses to take off their masks! pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

Khirad – and one Rep, I can’t remember who, BRAGGED about the cuts to Benghazi and Embassy security and still blamed Hillary. choicelady 5 hours ago

Khirad, they’re wanting to question HRC again about the dead horse! pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

glenn – Happy Birthday to your daughter! Yep, can’t help but be a reminder of our own age when our kids get older but you get to a point where you can just say, “Oh well, I’m here and doing fine.” AdLib 5 hours ago

Choicelady I know, but we all know that was not the point. Khirad 5 hours ago

Smoke and mirrors still. LOOOK OVER THERE! pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

Khirad–as a retired teacher, I just wish the pols would hold the cops as accountable as they hold teachers. Surely, we can devise a test to see if cops could pass it! glenn 5 hours ago

Anyway how hold is Biden? How is he losing it? He’s too old! – those are actual commercials… Khirad 5 hours ago

CL–didn’t know that about Arnold. He’s been scoring some points lately. glenn 5 hours ago

Projection defence, Kh. pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

Anyone here read “Democracy in Chains” by Nancy MacLean? If you haven’t, you need to because it is the best explanation of what is going on today. If it doesn’t curl your hair and curdle your milk, you are of stronger stuff than I am! choicelady 5 hours ago

It’s all projection and only the Lincoln Project holds him to it. Fuck Trump, fight back for fuck sake! Khirad 5 hours ago

glenn – Arnold is PRO MASK. He needs to do ads in costume – “The TERMINATOR WEARS MASKS! SO SHOULD YOU!” choicelady 5 hours ago

I heard of Democracy in Chains but can’t tell you a thing. Khirad 5 hours ago

PPO–The cultists shouldn’t be treated as people who tried to commit suicide. I realize that doctors and nurses have to treat them; but they should have to be treated as if they attempted suicide. Idiots! glenn 5 hours ago

I know that at the end of the day the Lincoln Project and Republicans for the Rule of Law will not be our BFF when Biden wins, but we’ve made alliances and positive changes with them. Bill Kristol – the man responsible for picking Sara Palin – is a strong supporter of Black Lives Matter, choicelady 5 hours ago

Khirad–Benghazi was never about the people who died. glenn 5 hours ago

Khriad – it is THE scariest book I;ve read in a very long time. And I read a lot of scary books. Libertarianism is what the GOP and Trump embrace, and it’s a radically pernicious view of our nation. Do read it. choicelady 5 hours ago

glenn – TX and FL closing bars isn’t going too make a massive dent. Their Governors along with Trump have doomed them to a massive disaster. All the Repub citizens shunning masks are still shunning them. And closing bars now (but leaving restaurants open) will not change that for the next few weeks, infections of people who got them this week will be spiking. It’s a tough future to get out of this with a pre-programmed Repub base that Trump has programmed to defy wearing masks…which, along with stay-at-home that they also shun, are the only ways to reduce infection rates. They will be hell but TX will get exactly what their LG Patrick wanted, spread the virus quickly, let the elderly die as a sacrifice to the economy all to help Trump. But it will only bury him. AdLib 5 hours ago

I have to admit, reluctantly that there do exist Republicans who abhor WhatsHisName as much as anyone and won’t vote for him. But, will they vote for Joe? pinkpantheroz 5 hours ago

CL–Haven’t read it; I’ll look it up on my Kindle. glenn 5 hours ago
