You get the free beer this week! AdLib 2 hours ago

Hello Ad….things here are….well, mixed……there is an effort being made to undermine the new association that replaced the co-op….. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Free beer…..Ultra! MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Hey PPO! AdLib an hour ago

Murph, Ad! hi there pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Murph – Who is trying to undermine it and how? AdLib an hour ago

Hi PPO…..in the room early tonight….rare that is. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Murph – Here ya go! AdLib an hour ago

The folks who destroyed the co-op….. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

All the more welcome, friend. How was your week? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO – Are you in lockdown now? AdLib an hour ago

Murph – That would have been my first guess. And how are they trying to undermine it? AdLib an hour ago

Yes, Ad Seems almost permanebt. We can’t seem to stop the virus crossing into Victoria from NSW where it is out of control, but wr’re doing well compared. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad….trying to undermine our relationships with vendors, suppliers, banks etc. It’s all nonsense from a factual perspective but since the right is fact adverse…. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Murph, that would have been expected. They don’t want their puny little powers usurped by a real coop, do they? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hello everyone twilson117 an hour ago

Their culture is so mean, so vindictive and so hateful….in all that they do. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

PPO – If only they’d do whatever it takes to get Pfizer and Moderna vaccines in the country and have mandates (do they have any vaccine mandates?), they could end this vicious cycle. AdLib an hour ago

Hi…TW…. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Hey TW! AdLib an hour ago

Ad….any word from our friend in GA? MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

At least no ill effects so far from the AZ shots, except for Fergie’s deep chills now and then. So getting more confident all will be OK for us. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hi TW pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Murph – So they can’t really succeed with using their lies and badmouthing to undermine your association, just annoy everyone, right? AdLib an hour ago

The probelm , Ad is that our GOP-style Gummint refused to buy 40 MILLION doses of Pfizer 18 montha ago and we’re now at the back of the queue. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Well folks in my second week of not watching main street news, considering going for a thrid week. twilson117 an hour ago

Murph – I haven’t heard anything, I hope she’s progressing in her rehab. Will reach out to her. AdLib an hour ago

Ad, who are we referring to, pls? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad…as a whole those who who destroyed the co-op were among our weakest links and are generally not succeeding without the rest of us. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

PPO – That is so good to hear, aside from Fergie’s chills. But I hope they’re subsiding. AdLib an hour ago

Ad, yes, thank goodness, rare now. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hey Murph seems folks don’t like what you’re doing, Wow. Some folks are just plain jealous of success. twilson117 an hour ago

TW isn’t no news refreshing????

pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad…thanks for reaching out….let’s connect off Vox in the next day or so. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

PPO – Yes, I know that massive stupidity of the government there, was just hoping they could do something to help hasten the availability of the other vaccines. AdLib an hour ago

PPO it is espeically when they all seem to be looking for a scapegoat. twilson117 an hour ago

TW….I think they were willing to put up with me and those like me as long as we did nothing too radical….then we invited two black families into the co-op….boom! MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

POTUS is trying to fix all the SNAFUs the previous bastard dumped on him. And succeeding from what I see. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO….since picking up on your take on the gubmint down under….I have been paying attention…..in the spirit of the trumpistas they are. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Murph I think alot of it has to do with you understand success is far greater when everyone participates not just a few. twilson117 an hour ago

Murph, at least now they have the freedumb to go bust without bringing the rest down. Bigly Win for them!!! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

TW – Right with you on that, my boycott of MSM tv and online news continues as the propaganda wave they are nearly all riding on tries to savage Biden for things he’s not responsible for or could ever have prevented (suicide bombers in Afghanistan who blow themselves up as they get to a checkpoint to be searched can’t be stopped from happening). AdLib an hour ago

TW…a cooperative vision is certainly at the heart of what we aimed to do. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

PPO – Thinking of glenn. AdLib an hour ago

PPO…Free-Dumb!!! Love It.

MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad what they don’t understand is Biden will ride this out and be more popular than ever. twilson117 an hour ago

OPh, is she OK? I must have missed something. Sorry pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Murph – Sounds good! AdLib an hour ago

Murph you have that right. After isn’t that what a co-op is about? twilson117 an hour ago

Murph, your new asociation is sure to succeed due to the dedication and expertise of the members. Excuse my french, but the whingeers can go get fucked! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad I did read that the Trump** lawyers got a royal smack down in a 110 page ruling which suggests they be suspended and perhaps disbarred. twilson117 an hour ago

Ad, TW, our MSM are doing the same here, trying to destroy our ‘Dem’ Labor State Premiers to hide their failures. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

TW – Agreed, for good or bad, Americans don’t generally vote based on foreign affairs and Afghanistan has been pushed down the memory hole for two decades. By 2022, the only ones obsessed with it will be the insane GOP pols but it won’t be potent by then. In fact, the GOP will probably be howling about how the Afghans we brought over are terrorists and the cause of COVID outbreaks in anti-vaccine states like FL, MO and TX. AdLib an hour ago

I just sent Glenn a greeting from the Voices at Vox with a copy to Ad. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Lovely, Murph. Thanks for that. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO media seems to be the same everywhere it’s about the headlines twilson117 an hour ago

TW…thank you for the encouraging words re. the association. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad, how many of the 5,000 Tbans the Twice Impeached Florida Retiree freed up will end up here? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Murph no problem. I never understood why people think keeping others out will be better for them. twilson117 an hour ago

TW – Yes, I saw that too. It would be such an important statement for the judicial branch to make to press for the serious sanctioning and hopefully disbarment of all lawyers who participated in The Big Lie and the overthrow of our democracy. Will wait to see if the punishment is widespread among Trump’s lawyers as it needs to be, to scare away others from doing the same in 2024. AdLib an hour ago

Nice retaliation by POTUS with the drone strike. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

I think I shared last week that I know an Afghani-American woman doctor rather well. We have spoken of her homeland many times. She told me yesterday that there are five axes along which Afghan society is formed (or malformed) and they are represented by AQ, ISIS, Taliban, Warlords, Tribal Chieftans. Their natural state is rivalry and discord. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad based on what I’ve been seeing in my news feeds what was the Republican Party has move down the path of facism with all the foolish their members are now doing. twilson117 an hour ago

PPO – It just seems to me that this cynical game of trying to twist every possible event that happens into a partisan attack is so obvious and hollow. Yet, the polls show a certain number of indie voters, low info voters who appear just to read or hear headlines, are still the ignorant sheep they’ve always been. Even so, averaging around 50% now with the COVID upswing (as planned by Repubs) and Afghanistan, is still 10% higher than Trump was at this point without any big issues weighing him down…other than being a racist criminal. AdLib an hour ago

Agree, Murph, Afghans have been feuding among themselves for millennia, then join together to defeat any outside intrusions. History should have shown bush. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Murph – That was so kind of you to send that to glenn for all of us, she is very missed! AdLib an hour ago

Murph that sounds like centuries old hostilities. twilson117 an hour ago

“U.S. military forces conducted an over-the-horizon counterterrorism operation today against an ISIS-K planner,” said Capt. Bill Urban, spokesman for U.S. Central Command, in a statement. “The unmanned airstrike occurred in the Nangarhar Province of Afghanistan. Initial indications are that we killed the target. We know of no civilian casualties.” MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

PPO – The truth is, I doubt any of the 5,000 freed Taliban terrorists have any interest in leaving Afghanistan. They have the power there now, why go to the US or elsewhere to commit terrorism and egg on another invasion? Makes no sense. AdLib an hour ago

US may physically out of the country, but……. heh heh pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad, you are right. they can just destroy their country and leave it to others to do their dirty work overseas. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

The Mujahideen have long established links to the U.S. CIA….a key to the victories of 2002…..and t hey hate the Taliban……is the Taliban aware of this….you bet. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Murph – Yes, that’s exactly what I’ve been saying since Biden began the pullout, the Afghan culture is one that identifies warlords and religious tribes as being the natural rulers of their country. Of course many women and men too wanted a more enlightened and democratic government but they are in the minority, the majority was just fine with accepting the Taliban takeover because that’s the way things have worked there for centuries. AdLib an hour ago

Ad, Vietnam took a few years to restructure and become a working country welcome to the rest of the world. I don’t see this happening ever in Afghanistan, sadly for them. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad…my doctor friend would agree with you…in fact she has been one the women who has counseled against a high profile woman’s agenda in Afghanistan because it is so counter cultural. As she has told me many tmes….”I left because staying invited eventual loss” MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad and Murph something tells me the strong pull of greed will be the ultimate factor that will pull them together when they fully realize the wealth they have under their feet. And the only way they will be able to realize it is bringing a level of stability to their country. No country will want to come in and mind if their people are getting shot at. twilson117 an hour ago

TW – The GOP is now nothing but a hollow vehicle for racism and fascism. That’s it. The only bills they try to pass in states is to destroy democracy. They literally had no platform in 2020, none. No issues, no plans, nothing but wanting to grab power through fear and hatred. They are a sick and demented organization now and need to be shut out of power. But Krysten Sinema and Joe Manchin are bought off and will happily hand our democracy away. AdLib an hour ago
