Vox Populi, our weekly live chat about the week’s events begins tonight at 7:00pm PDT. Hope to see you then! AdLib 3 hours ago

Hey Khirad! AdLib 3 hours ago

Is it legal to hunt bounty hunters in Texas? I still got time, right? Khirad 3 hours ago

I think you can get $10,000 in Bitcoin for doing that. AdLib 3 hours ago

So I can fund my own narco militia? Khirad 3 hours ago

That’s why it’s called, “freedom”. AdLib 3 hours ago

Seriously, am I an hour off? You know he deal, Arizona Khirad 3 hours ago

Jim Jeffries: Freedumb. Khirad 3 hours ago

Yep, just a bit early but no worries. I’ve been thinking of turning back the start time an hour earlier. 10PM start on the East Coast is a bit late. AdLib 3 hours ago

Whatevs, I’m gonna have a cancer stick, and we can commiserate. Khirad 3 hours ago

I notice that when RWs take indefensible stands against meaningful things, they can only mutter, “But freedom!”. AdLib 3 hours ago

See ya in a bit then! Freedom! AdLib 3 hours ago

That’s what Robert E Lee said when he won Afghanistan! Khirad 3 hours ago

I wish I was in the land of opium, good times there are not… AdLib 3 hours ago

Look away, look away, look away Afghanistan. AdLib 3 hours ago

That’s what Darius said – hitoooo Khirad 3 hours ago

If only the generals who lost the Civil War could’ve lost Afghanistan, then we could…uh…what was I talking about? AdLib 3 hours ago

I went off on a long essay length diatribe about the Soviet Union, the British empire and such.I’m fucking with you – I was talking about all those that lost in Afghanistan before Christ was born… Silly me. Khirad 3 hours ago

I would link it but, whilst I am banned again on FB, I’ve got girls … and I’m playing it cool here. Khirad 3 hours ago

The mentality seems to be like, “Okay, all these other invaders throughout history have failed to conquer Afghanistan. They were just quitters! Come on! AdLib 3 hours ago

I tried to copy it here, but it’s worth a post what I wrote. It’s not just the Taliban. I’m talking like 2000 BCE. Khirad 3 hours ago

Fun fact, the spokesmen, and yes men, I can kinda understand. They’re not speaking Pashto, but Dari. Khirad 3 hours ago

Right, the Taliban are a more recent group, different groupings throughout history but the constant you’re pointing out is that the people there have lived for so long under warlords and marauding groups. Since they are so tribal, not surprising that different coming togethers and splitting have happened…but the outsiders who come in to take power always lose. AdLib 3 hours ago

If you get a chance watch the WP on the in the mansion in Kabul. I get it, if they could just not be… the Taliban? Khirad 3 hours ago

As much as I dislike the Taliban, how different are they from Texan politicians? AdLib 3 hours ago

No, I’m saying – and this will shock you, Afghanistan is a construct – of artifical boundaries. Thanks Britain and Russia! Khirad 3 hours ago

Since we’re alone, I’ll accept the hyperbole. Only because Texans don’t know how to throw stones. Khirad 3 hours ago

Yes, that makes perfect sense and is historically accurate. Seperate tribes living where they were suddenly declared by these imperialist nations as a country. AdLib 3 hours ago

Oh, Texas politicians love throwing stones, especially the first one. And they definitely are not without sin. AdLib 3 hours ago

In fact, I expect Abbott to sign a bill bringing back stonings of witches. AdLib 3 hours ago

I got banned from FB for defending hijab. One million Muslim women and they all are forced to wear burqas. I tried reason, … and told a fellow “lib” to fuck off Khirad 3 hours ago

I commented on a Forbes thing talking about Washington ignoring the border citing Cancun Cruz. I informed them Washington borders British Columbia, Canada. Khirad 2 hours ago

So the complainers were saying? AdLib 2 hours ago

Is it me or is the HILL more right wing than I remember? Khirad 2 hours ago

Hey TW1 AdLib 2 hours ago

I meant, “Hey TW!” AdLib 2 hours ago

He AdLib did you get your daughter off to college? twilson117 2 hours ago

The Hill was bought and is now more lie and propaganda spewing then before. AdLib 2 hours ago

So it’s just not just me. The Hill used to have a presence but it might as well be Forbes. Khirad 2 hours ago

*pretence Khirad 2 hours ago

TW – Yep, took her last week. Caught the tail end of the tropical storm/ex-hurricane on Wed when we got in but you know hoe beautiful it was Thurs and Fri. The campus is gorgeous, she couldn’t wait to move in and start her college career. AdLib 2 hours ago

Khirad – I think The Hill is now worse than that. And same story with Politico, both were bought recently by RW entities who are pushing them into propaganda machines. AdLib 2 hours ago

Before you guys get osteoporosis, I’m gonna see if I can get some chicks nekid. I’m. not dead yet. Khirad 2 hours ago

Glad to hear that Ad she will have a great time at the school and getting to learn the area when she gets time. twilson117 2 hours ago

Khirad – Good luck with that! AdLib 2 hours ago

TW – Yes, I kept repeating over and over, as we drove away from the college, drove through the beautiful areas, vistied Walden Pond, how lucky she is to be there. AdLib 2 hours ago

Hope you provided her with some snow gear as it can and will get colder here. twilson117 2 hours ago

A freidn of hers is going to a small school in SC…where Covid vaccinations are in the 40%s. And infections skyrocketing. And no mask or vaccine mandates. I would have been quite worried if she had gone there. At her college, they require vaccinations and do regular testing. AdLib 2 hours ago

For a Republican Baker isn’ t bad. He took the COVID situation serious from the get go. twilson117 2 hours ago

She was told to buy her cold weather clothes out there so she wouldn’t let us get much for her ahead of time. I told her she’d really need boots, she of course, as a teenager, will need to learn the hard and soggy way. AdLib 2 hours ago
