Vox Populi, our weekly love chat about the week’s events begins tonight at 7:00pm PDT. Hope to see you then! AdLib 4 hours ago

Hey PPO! Great news about the SCOTUS rejection of TX and Trump, eh? AdLib 4 hours ago

Hey PPO! AdLib 2 hours ago

Hey Ad! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Did you see my last reply to you on Twitter? AdLib 2 hours ago

Yes, great news that SCOTUS has banjaxed the trump coup once and for all. pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

stand by – will check pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Yes, I passed on your observations and asked him if he could just read it in POV. Download may be too big? pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Yep, no path left for Trump and the Fascist Old Party. AdLib 2 hours ago

some comic mentioned that the WH Coup Coup Clock has finally stopped! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

I assume it’s a block of some kind from our security, if I know what happens, error message or the page just didn’t come up? AdLib 2 hours ago

Will texas secede? Hope so! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

While I wouldn’t mind being rid of red states, always have to remind myself that lots of good Dems in all states. AdLib 2 hours ago

True, Ad. Lots of Texans want to turn the State blue as well, so we’ll see. the Parlers are screaming for Civil War. Dumb bastards! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

And the fact is that no state can secede. The Constitution doesn’t provide for any method for secession. If Texas refused to follow federal law, they would be sued until they obeyed it. AdLib 2 hours ago

Ad, if they tried, can’t thre Feds deny services and access? pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

I think the Parler types are al Incel types too, frustrated, weak cowards who would never really put themselves at risk. AdLib 2 hours ago

PPO – Imagine TX trying to operate while the Feds cut off banking, funding, services, etc.. AdLib 2 hours ago

Would it be possible for Pres. Biden to declare all non-official militias domestic terrorists? pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

And as the National Guard rolled into TX arresting Abbott and all TX leaders for sedition. AdLib 2 hours ago

Hey Murph! AdLib 2 hours ago

I’d love to see that, Ad! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Hey Murph! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

PPO – Biden’s AG can and should launch a program to root out all of the militias that represent threats and prosecute the criminals and disband their orgs. AdLib 2 hours ago

Hope they do, Ad. Defuse the situation lawfully. pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Just caught up on the stream…so, howdy… MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

What really and desperately is needed is for the rule of law to stand up tall and powerfully under Biden. His AG may be the most important appointment in his cabinet. AdLib 2 hours ago

So Murph, you agree that Trump has finally hit the wall that Mexico never paid for? AdLib 2 hours ago

Don’t forget, after Obama was elected, Repubs acted the same way, urged secession and some in TX were pushing it hard. AdLib 2 hours ago

Apparently heads are exploding on Parler as we spaek. Hee Hee! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Biden seems to prefer a path of quiet reconciliation with the needs of the nation providing a stage on which common action for the good dominates….the problem is that the GOP, as a corporate entity, is only about holding onto power no matter what the cost. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

I wouldn’t want to be the custodian at Parler with all the splatters of heads exploding for hours and hours. AdLib 2 hours ago

Agree Murph. Suggestions in twitter that the 100+ republicans not be seated in Jan! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Trump’s purpose in all of this is to harden the position of his core constituency. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Parler is another word for auto-cannibalism! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Murph – What was absolutely confirmed over the past few days is that the GOP is no longer a political party, it is a fascist organization and there is no negotiating with fascists. Hence, McConnell being a fascist in The Senate refusing to help the suffering of 300 million Americans if he can’t extort protections for his criminal buddies in corporations. The GOP is not a political party and they have been decaying into a fascist organization for many years. They finally arrived and should be wholly shunned. AdLib 2 hours ago

If I were the GOP, I would kick Trump out asap and try to mend the damage. It will take years before any GOPer will be trusted, but it is a place to start pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Murph – Yep, Trump’s main motive though is terror at no longer being protected from prosecution. Second, it is about retaining his power and adulation by millions of cultists. Third, it’s about squeezing the “suckers” that follow him out of hundreds of millions of dollars. AdLib 2 hours ago

Evening all – it’s raining here, I’m done with Christmas shopping, I have wine, and all is right FINALLY with the world. choicelady 2 hours ago

HI, cl! pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Steve Schmidt- “The Republican Party is an organized conspiracy for the purposes of maintaining power for self-interest, and the self-interest of its donor class. There is no fidelity to the American ideal.” MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

I wonder how Parler is working out when right now it’s just a chorus of crying and making empty threats. Like being in the basement of a home for a Klan meeting after the Feds shut them down. AdLib 2 hours ago

Hey CL! AdLib 2 hours ago

Hey PPO – how are things there? I read it as 57C a couple of weeks ago, and that boggles my mind! choicelady 2 hours ago

Hey Ad Lib and Murph – good to see you. choicelady 2 hours ago

PPO – But the reality is that there is no GOP outside of Trump, the GOP is now a Trump led cult. No way to kick him out, he IS the party. A party of fascism now, that’s all they are. AdLib 2 hours ago

cl, a balmy 25C today. Will be v hot Sunday pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

CL – Lucky you! You’ve got rain and I’m still patiently waiting for a nice rain down this way! AdLib 2 hours ago

25? That IS balmy – this whipsaw from hot to mild must be making you all nuts/. choicelady 2 hours ago

Ad – I read we have La Nina that brings a LITTLE rain to us and nothing much to you. I am sorry. Hence…your project. choicelady an hour ago

There needs to be a new party then. I don’t want one, but think a new conservative movement would split the current GOP, to Dem’s advantage pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO – I want to see what comes from the Lincoln Project and other Never Trump people. I”m finding them amazingly on board with our issues. choicelady an hour ago

Murph – I wholly agree with Schmidt but I’d boil it down even more. The GOP operates like a mob, its only goals are power and wealth and taking it from the 99% to hand to the 1% that buys them off. They need to be RICOed. AdLib an hour ago

cl, Mel bourne is in the southern part of Oz, so we get anything from Flaming hot days with Northerly winds, to brass monkey weather whistling in from Antarctica, sometimes on the same day! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO – LOL!!! We used to call that Chicago weather. Now it’s common all around the world. choicelady an hour ago

CL – Indeed! Though a little El Nino wouldn’t be so bad. AdLib an hour ago

I think we all do better with El Nino than with La Nina. But the latter persists for years while the former comes in fast, leaves more quickly. choicelady an hour ago

It is raining and very cool here tonight….three miles down the road there is a bonfire rally taking place in support of Trump. Our members of Congress were told they were expected to be there. The word is that SCOTUS is under a coercive regimen forcing them to rule against Trump. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Climate change means bigger and hotter bushfires, less rainfall where it is most needed, rethinking where and when crops are planted and what variety. I wold not like to be living 100 years from now. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Murph – OMG. I just can’t. Stay home and stay safe. choicelady an hour ago

PPO – I think the Never Trump Repubs are a bit naive. They think they can take back the GOP. It is terminally infected now, there is no historical example of a fascist party changing back to a democratic one. Those Repubs will need to come to terms with joining the Dems or if the GOP wins the presidency again, goodbye democracy. AdLib an hour ago

PPO – I am a major supporter of reforestation. It has a huge role to play in moderating climate and producing rain. choicelady an hour ago

CL….my gates are locked, my cameras are on, my shotgun is at the ready. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

CL – Just like a guy, that’s why it’s El Nino that’s quick to be done and La Nina hangs around longer. AdLib an hour ago

The US Government needs to eschew big money. Kill Citizens United and curb lobbyists. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Murph – I’m glad. These people are crazy. I don’t want you hurt because they’re looking for a scapegoat. choicelady an hour ago

Murph, are the local cops going to hinder or help the bastards? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO – I agree, but that’s not the real source of our troubles. It lies in an ages old propaganda campaign against “the other”. choicelady an hour ago

Murph – I know the Trump cultists need to believe that the SCOTUS is somehow under the control of George Soros…but how many of them really believe Barrett, Gorsuch, Thomas and Kavanaugh are just mindless drones? AdLib an hour ago

We have become a world where the failure of extremists is laid to conspiracy. Bernie failed because we didn’t like him. Trump failed because we were fed up with him. In both cases it’s laid at the doorstep of centrist, pragmatic Dems. This is the ONLY group that gets things done AND doesn’t put people in cages. And yet they fear us because we’re comfortable with diversity. choicelady an hour ago

PPO – Yep, my view on Climate Change is about nations adapting to it, implementing programs to mitigate damage from it and changing the way things are done to compensate for it. Not a grand solution but valuable mitigation until a big solution can be reached. AdLib an hour ago

Ad – WE think Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett are mindless drones! LOL! choicelady an hour ago

AD =

choicelady an hour ago

new tweet “Folks in Parler are threatening to leave the country for New Mexico ” pinkpantheroz an hour ago

OMG – SPARE New Mexico – nice people live there! choicelady an hour ago

Murph – Are you concerned they may come over to your place with bad intentions? AdLib an hour ago

I’ll give ’em Idaho. They pretty much have it already. choicelady an hour ago

CL – The degradation of democracy by radicals is not new. Whether Trump cultists or Bernie cultists, they see elections as needing to be affirmations of their beliefs (and hatreds). Losing elections can only happen if they’re cheated because…only they and those who agree with them are worthy of winning elections and having power. AdLib an hour ago

Ad – EXACTLY. Purity extremists have no answer other than “we wuz robbed” instead of “we actually didn’t make our case”. choicelady an hour ago

CL – Exactly! We see the ultra conservative SCOTUS judges for the kneejerk drones that they are but Trumpers have been celebrating them. Now with this ruling, they have to start feeling that they’ve been conned but will never admit it. AdLib an hour ago

PPO – Yep, that’s what we saw after Biden won. Turned out to be Russian bots and trolls pushing that. AdLib an hour ago

Devin Nunes says he has tested positive for COVID-19. just in pinkpantheroz an hour ago

I am so horrified that we’ve been seeing this, over and over, since the Clinton years at least. The very arguments – black helicopters, FEMA camps, take our guns, prevent us from worshipping – were going on then and still going on now. And yet – nothing bad ever happens to them. choicelady an hour ago

CL – Yep, extremists have no self-awareness or awareness in general. They are so blinded by their righteousness, they can’t accept that they are fringe nutters. So elections they lose have to be rigged since they think the majority of people are nutjobs like them. AdLib an hour ago

PPO – Couldn’t happen to a more deserving person than Devin./ choicelady an hour ago

Poor COVID, I wish it a speedy recovery from Nunes. AdLib an hour ago

So CL, how do you like living in New California? AdLib an hour ago

Ad – when the smoke clears, I think we will find the actual voting outcomes were TOO heavily skewed to Trump, and that he lost by far greater margins than the rigged machines show. choicelady an hour ago

So far, I am OK with the current SCOTUS. Despite their conservative leanings, they are interpreting the Constitution and Laws fairly, IMO. It must gall LOSER that they have what he hasn’t – integrity. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad –

Spare Covid from Devin!!! choicelady an hour ago

PPO – this SCOTUS will screw us on social issues but not on the fundaments of the Republic. choicelady an hour ago

cl, hopefully they will maintain settled law. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

CL – I think if we had recounts in KY and SC and a couple of other red states, we would find some pretty startling things in the count. I’m not a conspiracy guy by McConnell had an 18% favorable rating yet won by double digits. And how did Lady G win by double digits over Harrison? Still, just questions, I would not go to court to overturn elections without evidence. AdLib an hour ago

I do hope that no one expects the New Administration to fix what ails the US in the first week! Even God rested on the 7th Day! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad – I’m in OLD California. New California begins about Butte County. I’m part of the dreaded Establishment. Which is why when an explosion went off last night right outside our house I did have a major heart attack. We can’t tell what it was, nothing to see, but it happened again EXACTLY as the word on the SCOTUS dismissal occurred this afternoon. Not so close though. You know I’m known to them. Creeps me the hell out. choicelady an hour ago

PPO – I think the current SCOTUS is being on their best behavior because they know that acting like nutters could help Dems gain popular support for expanding the court. Sometimes fear works for us. AdLib an hour ago

I’ll take that, ad! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO – Biden can fix a LOT fast, but not everything.If the new Left gets shirty – produce something, fools. Talk is effin’ cheap. choicelady an hour ago

Ad – I WANT the court expanded. Seriously. choicelady an hour ago

Murph – are you there? Now we’re worried about you! choicelady an hour ago

cl, If the territories become states, with new Reps and Senators, won’t that help expand the SCOTUS? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad – back to your comment on KY and SC – yes, evidence. None of us aspire to be the wacko lady Sidney whosis. choicelady an hour ago

CL – That is scary! Glad it wasn’t too close but who expects to have explosions near their homes? Do you still think there will be violence leading up to and through Biden’s inauguration? AdLib an hour ago

PPO – you’d think it would give a boost, yes! choicelady an hour ago

Ad – it was 1 am and it totally shook the house. Right outside. This afternoon was loud but not nearly so close. choicelady an hour ago

Yes – there will be, and this weekend in DC is very worrisome. choicelady an hour ago

When the Inauguration happens, if trump doesn’t show, I want him not to get the chopper or VC25, but given a train ticket. It was good enough for Joe and previous Presidents! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

CL – Folks here know I’ve been calling for an expanded SCOTUS since Obama was president (and Garland was buried). I want to see that. SOmeone from the Obama Admin was on MSNBC tonight, proposing expanding to 13 seats which is my target too and having 18 year terms that rotate so all presidents get to nominate two justices. AdLib an hour ago

Ad – I don’t like term limits on anything, but I’m about to accept it so we don’t lose people again as we just did Ruth. I’m not mad at her for staying. I’m furious with Mitch for his raging hypocrisy.’ choicelady an hour ago

Nice concept, Ad. Of course, it is too balanced to be welcomed by both sides. We can but wish… pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO – It would help by having a bigger or new majority in The Senate and House for Dems but the SCOTUS could be expanded in Biden’s first year with the 2 GA Senate seats won and the filibuster killed in The Senate. AdLib an hour ago

I’d be MORE open to an upper age limit even though the older I get the less that appeals! If someone is 40 why should they withdraw at 58? choicelady an hour ago

OK – now I’m REALLY worried about Murph. REALLY worried. choicelady an hour ago

cl, 18 years or age 75, whichever comes last? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

CL – Sidney needs badly to be disbarred. How can any Bar look at her behavior and let her represent them moving forward? AdLib an hour ago

LOL! If your term is 18 years, that’s not enough. I’d be OK with a 70 and out maybe. choicelady an hour ago

Ad – I heard there are movement to get her and Rudy disbarred. choicelady an hour ago

CL – And you couldn’t find any sign of where the explosion was? AdLib an hour ago

Ad – nothing. But it was RIGHT outside, shook the house pretty solidly. No sign of anything.’ choicelady an hour ago

cl, could be in the sewers pinkpantheroz an hour ago

A friend just texted me that Trump is having a superspreader Christmas party, and he won’t come down for it. He’s pitching a fit over SCOTUS. choicelady an hour ago

PPO – we would have seen or SMELLED something. It sounded like a HUGE lightbulb blowing up. Nothing to be seen or detected in any way. choicelady an hour ago

CL – And I don’t think lifetime appointments belong in a democracy. They need to be ended so there is some limit, we shouldn’t have SCOTUS judges who are out of touch and maybe messed up like Thomas, have lifetime appointments. I was for a 10 year term. If George Washington was willing to limit his own presidency to two terms, why shouldn’t we have a more reflective SCOTUS that does? AdLib an hour ago

CL – Same here, hope Murph comes back to at least say all is well. AdLib an hour ago

And yet we had FDR whom we NEEDED for almost 12 years. Ten years opens the door to a whipsaw of views not continuity. choicelady an hour ago

Anyone have his phone number? As close as we are, I don’t even have his NAME or the town he lives near. choicelady an hour ago

CL – Sidney and Rudy should both be disbarred. Isn’t sedition and abuse of courts enough to do that? AdLib an hour ago

cl anything being reported in local media? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

I’m thinking Murph is not his real name. Just a supposition. choicelady an hour ago

PPO – Nope. Nothing. choicelady an hour ago

Murph the Surf – hardly anyone’s named “the” as their middle name. choicelady an hour ago

cl, Murph had another name a few years ago, but he was targetted, so changed it. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

CL – So maybe it was like an M-80? AdLib an hour ago

I must not have met him until he had morphed to Murph. choicelady an hour ago

Murph has signed off. Hope he is OK pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad – I’m thinking yes, an M-80 is the most logical explanation. choicelady an hour ago

I know – it’s deeply worrisome. choicelady an hour ago

CL – Yep, Haberman reported that 10 minutes before Trump was to come to the party and speak to the crowd, he canceled. Aw, poor pathetic fascist baby! AdLib an hour ago

Trump personifies “titty baby”. choicelady an hour ago

I tweeted this: ‘Imagine having been conned out of mucho dinero to attend a fund rai–er- Christmas Party, only to be told the Jest of ‘honor’ isn’t coming? I’d seriously be wanting my money back, & the RNC sent the catering bill. (Yes, I know it was only McDonalds, but a principle’s a principle)” pinkpantheroz an hour ago

CL – But compared to lifetime appointments, we could benefit for a more socially reflective SCOTUS that brought in new blood more often. Bad judges would be gone sooner, good judges would have enough time to do big things. And we wouldn’t have to keep seeing older, out of touch people ruling the courts. AdLib an hour ago

PPO – LOL!!! choicelady an hour ago

CL – Hang on… AdLib an hour ago

So true, cl. He’s a baby, he’s got tits and a tiny willie! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad – I could live with it IF the terms were long enough. choicelady an hour ago

PPO – I posted when SCOTUS ruled, “Well THAT will shrink a mushroom or two”. Got LOTS of “likes” for that! choicelady an hour ago

Good one, cl!\ pinkpantheroz an hour ago

My heroine is Stormy. She appeared here a couple of years ago at Gold’s Men’s Club. The audience was almost ALL women cheering her on. The regulars were muy confused. I didn’t know it in time or I’d have gone. I really respect her! choicelady an hour ago

Murph is fine. AdLib an hour ago

WHEW! Did he say what’s going on? Thanks for letting us know. It’s worrisome. choicelady an hour ago

Phew, relief, Ad. Thanks for checking pinkpantheroz an hour ago

I said once I knew what it was like to be so scared of people you couldn’t breathe. I was feeling that for Murph when he dropped off. choicelady an hour ago

I don’t know about you two, but I’m tired of holding my breath waiting for the next explosion, real or metaphorical. I have perpetual mild stomach aches and scalp aches from the tension. I’m so ready for this to be over. And even with Biden-Harris in office, it won’t be. choicelady 44 minutes ago

MURPH – we were so worried! choicelady 43 minutes ago

Glad you’re OK, Murph. Did they come anywhere near you? pinkpantheroz 42 minutes ago

I like Stormy too, she’s been brilliant on Twitter too! AdLib 42 minutes ago

So where does Trump go from here? AdLib 42 minutes ago

Ad – yes, she’s a hoot. She followed me for a time – then she changed accounts and didn’t. But I find her hilariously real about Himself and life in general. choicelady 42 minutes ago

Ad – it has been realistically posited he will go to Mar a Lago for Christmas and not return. He thinks he can’t be extradited to NY. Surprise! He CAN be. choicelady 41 minutes ago

Fell asleep. S0RRY. Ad called…..thanks to CL and PPO. MurphTheSurf3 39 minutes ago

Ad, One way to Palookaville, via Mar a Lardo pinkpantheroz 38 minutes ago

Good news…..pouring so hard……the bonfire died. A poetic metaphor…. MurphTheSurf3 38 minutes ago

That scenario works for me, let Trump hunker down with his wife Eva in the Mar-a-Lago bunker and have a little something to drink. AdLib 38 minutes ago

We love you, Murph. You know why from me with all the help you’ve given me to help my friend PLUS just liking you on general principles! So we do worry. choicelady 38 minutes ago

That is TOOO wonderful! The bonfire died, slink home. GREAT! choicelady 37 minutes ago

Thank you. Hope your friend is faring well, CL. MurphTheSurf3 37 minutes ago

Brilliantly Apt, Murph! pinkpantheroz 37 minutes ago

Murph – she is doing GREAT, thank you. Your suggestion turned out perfectly. choicelady 36 minutes ago

As I shared with Ad…..the level of delusional denialism here is epic. MurphTheSurf3 36 minutes ago

The GOP is now a dead bonfire. And Trump is a dead bin fire. AdLib 36 minutes ago

Ok, so all is OK with us, so I’ll head off to de-leaf our patio, after huge winds during the week pinkpantheroz 36 minutes ago

Murph – I am so sorry people all through the world of conservatism have gone stark, staring insane. choicelady 36 minutes ago

PPO….I beleaf you can de leaf. MurphTheSurf3 36 minutes ago

Deleaf away, PPO! Hi to Fergie! AdLib 36 minutes ago

Fergie says HI back! Cheers! pinkpantheroz 35 minutes ago

PPO – stay well, stay cool, and know we love you. Best wishes fighting the leaves! choicelady 35 minutes ago

I’m a de-leafer! AdLib 35 minutes ago

Ad – I hear a great beat you can dance to in that last line…! choicelady 35 minutes ago

Sen. Hawley….a trump in training from my pov….broke with him yesterday…..and is attacking McConnell…maybe the worm is turning. MurphTheSurf3 34 minutes ago

That was a hit for the Monkees. AdLib 34 minutes ago

And I saw His Face, now I’m a beleafer…… MurphTheSurf3 34 minutes ago

Well, now we have Murph back I’m punking out. This has been a very stressful week on many fronts, and I’m just pooped. choicelady 34 minutes ago

Good night CL… and I guess goodnight Ad…thanks for the call…. MurphTheSurf3 33 minutes ago

Stay safe, CL! Rest well, you deserve it! AdLib 33 minutes ago

Murph – glad to hear Hawley is breaking w the insanity. Good note to go out on. Hope to see you next week! choicelady 33 minutes ago

Sure thing, Murph! AdLib 33 minutes ago
