Good evening AdLIb twilson117 3 hours ago

Hey TW! AdLib 3 hours ago

Looks like we’ll have a lot to discuss tonight. twilson117 3 hours ago

Hi all. Well, what a week, eh? pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Hey PPO how are you tonigh twilson117 3 hours ago

Yes! Things in the country have been good and bad. Chauvin getting 22.5 years and Trump Org about to be indicted and bipartisan infrastructure looking possible, while Repubs are trying to declare a Civil War against our democracy. AdLib 3 hours ago

Hey PPO! AdLib 3 hours ago

Well please about the Floyd sentencing. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

22.5 years is significant twilson117 3 hours ago

PPO – That’s a big deal! Longest sentance against a white cop in MN history. AdLib 3 hours ago

PPO yes it is twilson117 3 hours ago

Hey Murph twilson117 3 hours ago

I understand some being disappointed it wasn’t 30 years for Chauvin but 22 years, which could be 15 years with good behavior, is a good start on convicting cops for murder. AdLib 3 hours ago

Hey Murph! AdLib 3 hours ago

‘ I told him, ‘Giulie, beware the Ides of March”! Poor Rudi, . Not! pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Hello friends. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

As if he’ll survive 15 even, Ad. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Hi, Murph! pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Oh yeah, Giuliani getting suspended, probably permanently, from practicing law. And on the same date that Roy Cohn was disbarred. AdLib 3 hours ago

Ad, hopefully the precedent is now set for murderers in police uniforms. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Think about all the lawyers around Trump who have been disbarred, Cohn, Cohen, Giuliani…could Sidney Powell and Bill Barr be next? AdLib 3 hours ago

PPO read the document where Giuliani law license was suspended, from my view it’s clear Rudi is losing it mentally. twilson117 3 hours ago

3 former Australian PMs are calling for a Royal Commission into Murdoch Media. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

PPO Really now that’s something. twilson117 3 hours ago

PPO – I hope Chauvin suffers each and every day at being in prison. What could be more of a hell for an ex-cop? AdLib 3 hours ago

The big story in my neck of the woods is that Missouri is Number One…..in the spread of the new COVID Delta Variant in the USA…..we have hospitals in the south of the state that are at capacity in their ICU and CCU units with transfers to city hospitals to make room for more of the sick in rural Missouri. 36 percent of the state is vaccinated….and now it looks like the vaccinationmay not be as effective against the variant as was originally hoped (per an Israeli study)…So back to the masks. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Ad, the guards will protect him as much as they can, but….. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

AdLib let’s not forget there are fed charges to come as well for Chauvin twilson117 3 hours ago

Sorry to hear that, Murph. Stay safe! pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

PPO – Yes, I hope this helps the case for ending qualified immunity and sets a precedent for state prosecutors to handle killer cop cases. If the local DA handled this, it would have gone like all the other cases, dropped or failed. AdLib 3 hours ago

PPO – That would be fantastic. Murdoch needs to be held responsible for his insurgencies. AdLib 3 hours ago

Murph, you could have predicated that with the failure on the part of the folks in your neck of the woods not wanting to be vaccinated or wear masks. So what’s their excuse now? More of the same, “the devil made me do it?” twilson117 3 hours ago

Murph – Yes, sorry to hear that but I saw MO is leading the country in COVID infections (though I bet FL really is since DeathSantis cooks the numbers). It’s raging out of control there, you should keep your distance from those Trumper co-op members, They are likely to spread it. AdLib 3 hours ago

PPO – I bet Chauvin is kept apart from the general prison population but that kind of isolation can be awful too. But since he is a white racist, he will have those types possibly accepting him. AdLib 3 hours ago

PPO isn’t that the procedure for cops? \ twilson117 3 hours ago

Murph, Sorry that they listen to the Murdoch and Koch talking potato heads, the people that think they know more than epidemiologists and economists. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

No problem keeping my distance from the CO-OP Trumpers because the entire effort is moribund. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

TW – Yes, glad there are Fed charges too against Chauvin and the three other cops. I don’t know though if a fed sentence would run concurrently with his state sentence or subsequently. Any idea? AdLib 3 hours ago

Ad, someone on Twitter said the Fed sentences would be consecutive, not concurrent. I’m not sure. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Ad have no idea on the concurrent part but your assessment seems logical twilson117 3 hours ago

Murph – If the open racism didn’t kill the co-op, having insistent Trumper/anti-vaxxers as the Delta variant runs wild would do it. AdLib 3 hours ago

Sorry, Murph, to hear its all gone west. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

PPO – Hope that’s the case. I am against the death penalty out of principle but I also think those who take the lives of others suffer more spending their lives in prison, having to face each day that they lost the life they had and nearly everything else for taking the life of an innocent human being. AdLib 3 hours ago

Murph, racism denialism and plain old fashion stupidity will only result in people going against their best interests. twilson117 3 hours ago

When Trump was in the WH, I would dread waking up each morning to learn of the latest madness. With Biden, each week brings a share of good things that renews your faith that good things can happen. AdLib 3 hours ago

Ad…and PPO and TW….I am saddened by the passing of the Co-Op….but I am just so tired of having to put with the nonsense of the right-wrongers. The two black farmers have completely withdrawn from any effort to associate with us, several of the long term middle of the roaders are citing the situation and their ages as prompts to step aside….and I have been doing next to nothing in regard to its upkeep…..the folks from the right and far right do not seem to have noticed. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

POTUS is going gangbusters! So much being done. Yet people moan that few arrests, suspensiions, etc.. Give the man room! It will happen. Hopefully before the next election. Seems the former slug is finally being shunned. About time. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Murph – You remember what my ironic scenario has been with Trumpers. They refuse to vaccinate and then a variant spreads across the country, taking out many of them and leaving a bigger Dem citizenship. It was a fictional scenario before, I think it is more possible now. AdLib 3 hours ago

Ad…my worry is that the variant seems to be taking a significant toll on the vaccinated as well. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Murph it’s a shame you have to forgo something you enjoy doing because of the bigotry of a few. twilson117 3 hours ago
