Gentle respectful hello pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hello. Stay calm and carry COVID. AdLib an hour ago

hi ad, glenn sombre day, eh? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hey glenn! AdLib an hour ago

Good evening, gents. How is everyone tonight/this afternoon? glenn an hour ago

Joe suspends campaigning, Trump holds rally on this special day. All class that guy pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO – I was there in Manhattan 1 year after 9-11 and again two years ago. It is so powerful to be there in person and go through the museum. AdLib an hour ago

Hey Khirad! AdLib an hour ago

hi glenn, just finishing my 8 hours watching TV pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Did they say the Pledge of Allegiance at the RTLB’s rally? glenn an hour ago

Hi, Khirad pinkpantheroz an hour ago

glenn, yes and RTLB didn’t know the words! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–I admire your stamina to be able to watch 8 hours of TV! glenn an hour ago

And you could still smell the terrible odor a year later, didn’t spend too much time there out of concern of cancerous material still in the air. AdLib an hour ago

Lil Nietzsche is with me so, I’m kicking him out. Khirad an hour ago

PPO–Of course he didn’t know the words! glenn an hour ago

that’s what Youknowwho does! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–That must have been spine tingling! Powerful museums like that always raise goosebumps on my arms! glenn an hour ago

Alright, he will be okay for awhile. Khirad an hour ago

Hi Khirad! glenn an hour ago

So, my view is that the decisions have been made and there won’t be much movement in the polls between now and Nov 3rd. But with all the election tampering by Trump, Russia, the GOP, etc., we have to look at GOTV as urgent and critical. SO confidence in Biden having a majority but concern at getting all those votes counted. AdLib an hour ago

Ad, what a great thing to do, must have been heartbreaking pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–Yeah, I know that’s what RTLB does! I hope you didn’t watch 8 hours of foxsocallednews. Or is Australia one of those smart places that doesn’t allow it? glenn an hour ago

glenn – It hits you like a sledgehammer in the soul. They have parts of the Tower in and as part of the museum. Still haunting right now as I think about it. AdLib an hour ago

I have mental health issues, so I prefer not to get into it anymore. If anyone is … it’s a cult. Khirad an hour ago

Ad–Yes, GOTV is more important than ever! Not to mention that the RTLB has promised to send in his thugs, if beyond all reasonable projections, he wins the election, and people begin protesting. glenn an hour ago

glenn, I am blessed that I have no cable whatever! Free to air so only low pollution from Murdoch’s channels. No Fox, No Sky, no RWShockJocks allowed, radio or TV. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Khirad – Lil Nietzsche? AdLib an hour ago

I was just watching Ring of Fire and he was talking about in the south. Khirad an hour ago

Lil Nietzsche is my cat. Khirad an hour ago

Ad–I had a similar reaction when we visited Dachau many years ago. A sledgehammer to the soul is a great description! glenn an hour ago

Khirad – Ah so. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–Good on ya! glenn an hour ago

The first people at Dachau were the Communists. Khirad an hour ago

Khirad–That’s interesting about Dachau; I didn’t know that. glenn an hour ago

glenn – I am not one to tolerate fear mongering. I say this as a reasoned conclusion based on actions and words. If Trump was to cheat big enough to win 4 more years, it will extinguish our democracy for at least a decade if not permanently disabing it. We may never have a legit nnational election for president in our lifetime. AdLib an hour ago

Did anyone make sense of Dame Rudy’s babble? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Khirad – Hi to Lil Nietzsche! AdLib an hour ago

glenn – I’m impressed that you visited Dachau. The thought of that is very intimidatinng. I know that has to have stayed with you. Haunting. AdLib an hour ago

I just watched something about Hitler and his childhood…. I hate to excuse anyone…. but. Khirad an hour ago

I never visited Dachau, my parents went last year to Germany and were like, nope. Because… nope. We got it. Khirad an hour ago

So often, Dems talk about winning over Trump voters. I think that’s pointless but I like to turn that around. Is there anything Trump can say or do to turn a Biden voter into one of Trump’s? I can’t imagine it. AdLib an hour ago

Ad–I agree completely. I believe that if the RTLB wins four more years, it will extinguish our democracy for what’s left of my life. I am also sure that this election will be the messiest, most chaotic of my lifetime. I don’t think we will know anything for sure for at least a week, if not more. The RTLB will make sure of it, and his asshole republican enablers will make sure of it! They won’t give up power easily, either. glenn an hour ago

Khirad – It’s not being insensitive to consider what kinds of mentally abusive childhooods influenced terrible men to become so cruel and sociopathic. AdLib an hour ago

True, glenn. Expect Supreme Court Challenges all over the place. Hanging Chads won’ be but a shadow of this one. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–Exactly. As you say, it was and still is haunting. I’m not saying I enjoyed the experience; but it certainly gave me a better sense of history, to have stood on the same ground as those poor souls. glenn an hour ago

I got a call from a friend in Oregon, I’ll let y’all know… great to see you all! Khirad an hour ago

glenn – This is why early votig and Vote By Mail and turning it in immediately are so important. Many states count that vote ahead of election night, some states corrupted by Repubs limit the amount of early counting but all states allow for it. We need to have most of those votes popping up in the numbers mmediately when the polls cloose. Biden needs to jump ut to a lead from the start and maintain it. Then Trump has much fewer options to create havoc. AdLib an hour ago

Khirad–Hitler’s childhood really is no excuse; just as the RTLB’s isn’t. Once you reach a certain age, you are responsible for your own actions; and have the capability to turn your life around regardless of your childhood. And visiting Dachau was, to me, a memorial to the people who perished there. glenn an hour ago

PPO – I know Trump will try to sue all the results that go against him or couting mail in votes but the SCOTUS won’t legitimately have ay cause to stop legit vote counting. In 2000, they stopped recounting in FL claiming it wasn’t fair but never the original counting. AdLib an hour ago

Hey CL! AdLib an hour ago

Hi – I see Ad, glenn, PPO – but where is Khirad? HI AdLib! choicelady an hour ago

Ad–Yes. After our discussion last week about voting by mail, I have decided to get an absentee ballot and drop it off at a box. I plan on doing that next week. glenn an hour ago

CL! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

CL–Khirad left to take a phone call. glenn an hour ago

glenn – I think that’s the safest way. For all state that permit that, it’s best. choicelady an hour ago

Hi PPO ! choicelady an hour ago

glenn – I agree, no one’s childhood is an excuse for how they act as an adult. It is interesting to see what contributed to theiir being twisted human beings but it doesn’t change that they are. AdLib an hour ago

glenn – well, hope he comes back. choicelady an hour ago

Ad – I got a copy from a friend of Mary Trump’s book. It made me sick. I could not finish it. choicelady an hour ago

CL–I just want to make sure my vote counts! How are you? glenn an hour ago

Ad, those bushfires are something else. Are you and yurs safe? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

glenn – Perfect! That is what I will be doing as well. Love my USPS folks and no reflection on them but who knows what ther dirty work Trump and DeJoy will be up to? AdLib an hour ago

CL–Looks like Woodward’s book is going to be even worse than Mary’s as far as making us sick! glenn an hour ago

We are fine in Sacramento if you discount days when the air does not sustain life. Otherwise, no problem. But several family members are in high risk areas. Other friends are suffering the horrific air. But no one I know has yet been burned out. YET being the operative word. PPO – feel as if I’m now really understand your disasters of last year. choicelady an hour ago

CL – Haven’t read Mary Trump’s book yet but I had a feeling it would tell stories that turned one’s stomach, after hearing much of it so far. Trump is a very mentally ill and sadistic SOB as well as an idiot, it is still stunning that he is in the WH. AdLib an hour ago

glenn – yes, but in a different way. Woodward brought the “receipts”. That matters. choicelady an hour ago

glenn, but the problem is that RTLB has done so much, will it make any difference? Unfortunately, We’re scandal’ed out. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–Yeah, I don’t trust the RTLB and DeJoy as far as I can throw either one of them. A drop box it is for me! glenn an hour ago

CL–I hope you and your family and friends continue to stay safe. glenn an hour ago

All – I do think a LOT of our system is repairable. I worry more about the asshats with guns and grudges. choicelady an hour ago

Trump needs to go, that’s a given, But the Senate MUST be won and we mustn’t get distracted pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO – We’re fine here in LA. The fires are always in the hills and we don’t live close enough to them to be threatened by fires. But it is like dusk here all day, an orange tint to everything, ashes scattered on everything outside, thinly but there. AdLib an hour ago

glenn – thank you. We are pretty isolated from disaster. River on two sides, and not much property with trees around us. We’re flat, grassland, and pretty capable of weathering fires without their getting to housing. choicelady an hour ago

Ad–It is stunning that he is STILL in the WH. As a couple of senators and pundits have said recently, he should be charged with negligible homicide! glenn an hour ago

Ad – we have the ‘dusk after dawn’ issue, too – keep thinking it’s going to rain. As if! choicelady an hour ago

Pence needs to be indicted stat, so he can’t pardon trump if he resigns pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO – I totally agree on Pence. choicelady an hour ago

CL–Me too. Those grudges run deep! You know, the first thing I thought of when the RTLB said that he would use his thugs to stop “insurrectionists” if he won and progressives protested, is “Well then can Biden do the same if YOUR thugs come armed to protest your losing?” glenn an hour ago

PPO – too few notice the Wax Man, Pence – but he’s just as evil as Trump without the vulgarity baggage. choicelady an hour ago

glenn – too few RW people realize that LW people also have guns because of RW people. This won’t go well for them. choicelady 44 minutes ago

CL – The biggest fire in CA history, the rash of fires across Western states is terrifying. The worst is yet to come from Climate Change and yet the Repubs stare right past the disasters piling up across the country. I hear that parts of Loiusiana, St. Charles for example, are without electricity, housing and Federal support. Ignored and left abandoned. This is the future for the country if Trump is re-elected. AdLib 44 minutes ago

cl, the guy makes my skin crawl. He’s the vulture ready to pick the Orange carcass. pinkpantheroz 44 minutes ago

Ad–That doesn’t sound like a pleasant situation. I’ve seen the pics from San Francisco and that orange tint it eeerie! glenn 44 minutes ago

CL–The “wax man”! Love it! glenn 43 minutes ago
