Hey Harleigh! AdLib an hour ago

How are things in FL? AdLib an hour ago

hi ad! Harleigh an hour ago

dying like mad… but abbut has made texass worse Harleigh an hour ago

That’s so tough, so many good folk in FL and TX suffering at the hands of political narcissists. AdLib an hour ago

RW Repub political narcissists that is. AdLib an hour ago

actually 90% + are unvaxed by choice repubes like 95% Harleigh an hour ago

Hey TW! AdLib an hour ago

Hello everyone. twilson117 an hour ago

hi tw Harleigh an hour ago

What amazes me is that Repub governors nbow know they are killing their own voters by at least a 2-1 margin but they won’t stop. AdLib an hour ago

it’s 8-1 Harleigh an hour ago

and they die in the hospital say the don’t believe it. some even want horse worm meds! lol Harleigh an hour ago

Been reading various news sources and clips and it seems Repubs are hell bent on denying everythging. twilson117 an hour ago

Harleigh – I had heard 7-1 then heard 2-1 but I think it is higher like 8-1. How do they think they can win close elections? Cheating only? AdLib an hour ago

Hey CL! AdLib an hour ago

Hi Harleigh and TW! Hi AD!!! choicelady an hour ago

Hey CL. twilson117 an hour ago

hi cl baby baby! Harleigh an hour ago

Harleigh – Yep, as we all knew, the “pro-life” party is only “pro-dictator”, they are lemmings happily dying just to own the libs. AdLib an hour ago

I have had no word yet from PPO, have you,, AD. I hope all is well with him. choicelady an hour ago

Ad – I think the worst part of Trumpism is the compassion fatigue I have toward his ilk. I just don’t care if they die. choicelady an hour ago

i couldnt care less about them. I have had both moderna, flu and pnumonia vaccines. Harleigh an hour ago

CL everything I read around the adoration repubs have for Trump** is right out of the dictator’s play book. twilson117 an hour ago

TW – It breaks down this way for me. The Repub pols and machines know they can’t win elections fairly anymore so on top of trying to rig elections to help themselves, they are trying to crash the country through Covid, debt ceiling, border hysteria, racism and CRT, etc., so they can point at Biden in 2024 and say, “Look how he has destroyed the country!” while they are the ones doing it. AdLib an hour ago

Harleigh – I got my third Pfizer yesterday. Feeling slow and loggy so I might not hang around long, but the flu etc. will come in a couple of week. choicelady an hour ago

Weeks. Plural. choicelady an hour ago

Biden’s numbers are up as COVID slows. choicelady an hour ago

Not everyone in America is an utter ass. choicelady an hour ago

we watched it for years in b & w nazi world at war shows. Can’t believe it is happening again. Harleigh an hour ago

CL – I was waiting for most folks to be here before filling everyone in but I haven’t heard anything more. So folks, PPO won’t be here tonight because Fergie is in the hospital with serious issues. Haven’t gotten an update yet on how she’s doing, she went in on Friday, Austalian time. AdLib an hour ago

Harleigh – I’ve always feared this. Still do. But I think we WILL win this slowly and steadily. I have good feelings about the midterms based on the quality of Dems running. choicelady an hour ago

Ad I was on a zoom call with a small group who were discussing CRT and the law Texas passed and I have to say what they have in that law in my opinion is right out of most of the distopian books you and I have read. twilson117 an hour ago

They are 18 hours ahead, so it’s early afternoon there. I heard from PPO as he was taking her. It’s been some time, and I HOPE they are OK. choicelady an hour ago

oh geez. hope it all works out for ppo and fergie Harleigh an hour ago

CL – I don’t know that it is the worst thing, to see Trumpers as the foot soldiers of a fascist, participating in the infecting and killing of other Americans in the name of undermining the country to hurt Biden and Dems. They are literally killing people. I hate to say it but their deaths protect the lives of innocent people, I would never mourn for them dying before they could harm or kill more people. AdLib an hour ago

TW – there is a chapter (was also an article in Harper’s some years back) from Jeff Sharlet’s “The Family” about Dominionists in power in DC. They held a meeting on US educations, and it was horrifying. All the participants were people I knew PERSONALLy from the anti abortion movement. They want the Greatest American Ever to be Stonewall Jackson who taught slaves Christianity and always obeyed orders. THE quintessential American in their eyes. NOT the Founding Fathers and no one else. Just Jackson and his ilk. choicelady an hour ago

cl i get my moderna booster in nov. Fauci said get your flu shot now Harleigh an hour ago

Ad – I agree with the sentiment. The Darwin Principle is our friend. choicelady an hour ago

Harleigh – I will get the flu shot week after next. choicelady an hour ago

Harleigh – Have had my Moderna’s since March, plan on getting flu shot this weekend. Let the Repubs kill themselves off, we need to protect ourselves from our two main enemies in this pandemic, Covid and Republicans. AdLib an hour ago

Ad – could not have said it better! choicelady an hour ago

get pnumonia too if you havent already. I even got the shingles vaccin! lol Harleigh an hour ago

Ad – is your young’un vaccinated? I assume so. choicelady an hour ago

I will get them all, Harleigh – just not all at once! choicelady an hour ago

Think about this though, only 41% of Repubs want Trump to run in 2024. That number is WAY down and is now only a minority of Repubs who want him back. He was at 95% or so. As vaccinations continue and Covid is eventually brought more under control in most of the US, Biden’s approval will rise as high as it has been before. AdLib an hour ago

cl just so you do! Harleigh an hour ago

At the same time, Abbott and DeSlime (Aka) have numbers crashing. People ARE beginning to see the light! choicelady an hour ago

Harleigh – I aspire to be 100 or more. Have to keep vaccinated to do that! choicelady 44 minutes ago

cl they have devastated their states. Harleigh 44 minutes ago

Harleigh – I think even the hard core are fed up with them. choicelady 44 minutes ago

their hardcore are the ones filling hospital ERs and morgues Harleigh 43 minutes ago

CL I have always found it interesting how religion is always at the forefront of those who have unnatural desires of power and greed. twilson117 43 minutes ago

lots of them here want invermectin and jubus at the hospital. lmao Harleigh 42 minutes ago

CL just to be clear I’m not making fun of religion, but, it seems to be a common thread throughout history and great empires. twilson117 42 minutes ago

TW – So true, this is all so identical to the open racism we’re used to seeing in black and white footage. Plain and out front, these racists don’t want children learning about the racism they and their family before them, exercised. By being plainly racist about CRT! It’s an insane time. AdLib 41 minutes ago

Faux religion, absolutely. Draped in a Chinese-made flag, carrying an unopened, shrink-wrapped Bible. choicelady 41 minutes ago

tru tw, hitler said his was a xtian movement Harleigh 41 minutes ago

TW – what gives you more pretend credibility than religion? choicelady 40 minutes ago

CL – I’m hoping so too. She was not in good shape before PPO took her to the hospital, I am very concerned. AdLib 40 minutes ago

Harleigh I do not understand how people will take something which is mainly for livestock. twilson117 40 minutes ago

Ad – I am, too. VERY worried. choicelady 40 minutes ago

TW – never forget that the leader of the Army of God admitted he screwed mules. You can see how those practices would lead them to be comfortable w animal dewormer. choicelady 39 minutes ago

CL – Hearing about those Dominionists and how Nazi-like they want to brainwash kids with such propaganda, makes me feel that there needs to be an aggressive campaign, both politically and socially, to pull the rugs out from under all of the wealthy and powerful financing this movement to destroy America and democracy. AdLib 38 minutes ago

CL yes it does indeed give you pretend credibility. How better to justify the curelity to fellow citizens. Condem them because they don’t worship the same as you do. twilson117 37 minutes ago

Ad – agreed. It’s an uphill battle. We started some of the pushback in Palm Springs. We cannot back away from it. choicelady 37 minutes ago

CL – Yep, the Young One got her vaccines at the same time we got ours, she was working part-time at a shop and was eligible then. AdLib 37 minutes ago

tw they have tried drinking bleach, injection disinfectants, chloroquine for malaria, UV light up their butts, invermectin animal wormer and lately down here gargle with iodine.!!! I wish I was just making shit up. lol Harleigh 37 minutes ago

TW – worked for King John and the Crusades all the way to Torquemada and into today. “GOD is on our side!” What more does one need? choicelady 36 minutes ago

Harleigh – I’d like to know how many of them died doing that. choicelady 36 minutes ago

lol yay jebus! glory! Harleigh 36 minutes ago

CL – Abbott’s and DeathSantis’ numbers are decling both because of their abject failures to protect their people and the RW Trumpers who support them are dying off in far greater numbers than Dems. AdLib 36 minutes ago

Yup. OTOH, if Jesus is a presence, I THINK he’d like to have a word with these guys… choicelady 35 minutes ago

Harleigh I read an article where doctors in Bolivia they are doing drips of chlorinie dioxide twilson117 34 minutes ago

cl floriduh only posts the deaths etc and covid weekly after they get altered and so nobody can fix the stats… not daily Harleigh 34 minutes ago

Two observable phenomena: RW extremist religion has lost HUGE numbers in the past decades. Down from 23% of the population to 13%. Trump’s audiences are dwindling fast. Even when they show up, they walk out. choicelady 34 minutes ago

CL – Indeed, this is a neverending battle to fight against this strain of tyranny that has always tried to rally a populist following in the country for truly despicable goals. AdLib 34 minutes ago

down here before spanky’s defeat they were paying up to $100 to attend. Harleigh 33 minutes ago

Harley – Nice roundup of everything these morons are using to kill themselves rather than “give aid and comfort to the liberal enemy”. In fact, maybe now they’ll start injecting Roundup too. AdLib 32 minutes ago

Harleigh – we keep seeing Craig’s list posts for ACTORS to show up at rallies. True for years. I don’t believe most of them are for real. choicelady 32 minutes ago

CL yes it has. It’s interesting how in ancient times their faith in their gods was what drove them to go out and wage war. And in modern times it hasn’t changed much. twilson117 32 minutes ago

lol and the join that lawsuit! Harleigh 32 minutes ago

CL – I think the RW evangelicals know just what the GOP does, they have been in a nosedive with the American public and they need to band together to detour around democracy because they can’t gain power that way. They are fully in cahoots in destroying our democracy, equally enemies of Americans who want to keep this country from falling into tyranny of the minority. AdLib 30 minutes ago

TW – the Bible, OT to New, is a march from tribalism with its wars and enmeties to a call for universal love and peace. Today’s RW like so many before, draw from the OT without a lick of rabbinical wisdom. choicelady 30 minutes ago

cl the minorities were paid more and traveled to his rallies and had to carry thos blacks for spanky signs. Harleigh 30 minutes ago

his rallies down here have dwindled Harleigh 28 minutes ago

The RW secular folks, children of James M. Buchanan, and the Dominionists, hate each other but have made a pact. But even together – ALEC and the Center for National Policy – they are not that numerous or strong. We CAN fight them if only we WILL fight them. choicelady 28 minutes ago

CL – You know Jimmy Carter claimed that Trump probably didn’t win in 2016 fairly, that Russia helped him scam and cheat his way in. Remember, we know that Russia had gotten into election systems in 2016 and the Feds, under Trump, refused to say what counties and what was done. AdLib 28 minutes ago

Harleigh – not even for an extra $100 would I pump for Spanky. choicelady 27 minutes ago

lol nope Harleigh 27 minutes ago

But I’m not Black either, so no one would offer. choicelady 27 minutes ago

I don’t think Trump won fairly in 2016. Nope. choicelady 27 minutes ago

well he lost the popular vote for sure Harleigh 26 minutes ago
