Add I’m using the voice recognition feature it’s working so far we’ll see what’s going on good idea thanks glenn an hour ago

Murph – CL is still dealing with her recovery from eye surgery, TW is dealing with losing his father last week, just a lot going on with Voxers right now. But glad you’re here and so glad to see glenn! AdLib an hour ago

glenn – YAY!!! AdLib an hour ago

Oh my gosh so much going on I haven’t been keeping up with boxers I’m so sorry to hear about TW’s dad Glad to see you and you add and murph glenn an hour ago

Since it’s a voice recognition it doesn’t always put the right words in meant to say I haven’t been keeping up with vox not boxers glenn an hour ago

A lot of smnaller but notable events this week, Cawthorn is being buried by the GOP, the Grand Jury has ended with that corrupt DA in Manhattan but one is being formed in GA against Trump’s election tampering, Musk is suffering blowback and doubts he can go through with buying Twitter and DeSantis has been softly spanked by the financial world saying FL’s credit rating will be hammered if he doesn’t find a solution for the debt Disney owed that FL will owe now. AdLib an hour ago

Add what’s going on with PPO glenn an hour ago

glenn – Right, PPO isn’t here for some reason that I don’t know. tonight AdLib an hour ago

I am sad to read that CL is still coping with that surgery. i do not know if I knew of TW’s dad’s passing. I am dealing with the pending death of a friend, 67, who was experiencing digestive problems…but turned out to be cancer of three organs in his abdomen. No therapy was given even a marginal chance of providing a road to a cure (or at least coping)…..I have been at his bedside every other day for a couple of hours. Wearing but the real heroes are his wife and kids. Home based hospice. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

glenn – Don’t worry about that at all, just so glad that you’re able to chat this way! AdLib 44 minutes ago

Thats for the recap Ad….. MurphTheSurf3 44 minutes ago

Murph – So sorry to hear that! And 67 is far from old, how terrible. AdLib 43 minutes ago

Yeah for me I am now living in desantis land I must say I am enjoying the weather it is just it has just been gorgeous glenn 43 minutes ago

Yes….he is part of my association and we have worked together on so many projects. MurphTheSurf3 42 minutes ago

And of course the biggest story, Russia is accomplishing some of its military goals but paying a high price. I saw some expert claiming that Ukraine may be on a par now with the army Russia has in the South and East. AdLib 42 minutes ago

Glenn……deSantis land…….like that. MurphTheSurf3 42 minutes ago

glenn – So happy to hear that. The move went well and all is good? Aside from DeSantis’ madness of course. AdLib 41 minutes ago

Murph went from the frying pan which is Georgia to the fire which is Florida disantis is just losing. it glenn 41 minutes ago

Actually I shouldn’t say losing it he is just trying to trump I think. glenn 40 minutes ago

glenn – Do you think the insanity of DeSantis’ dictatorship there is turning people against him or are people liking his turning the state into a banana republic? AdLib 40 minutes ago

Glenn….I would be a good thing for DeSantis to “lose it.” His office, his clout, his aspirations. MurphTheSurf3 40 minutes ago

Murph – It’s tragic for him to find out so late that he can’t be treated. Awful. AdLib 39 minutes ago

Add the move went well we moved 3 cars 2 pets 2 households 1 storage unit And overly too drivers It was a logistic goale glenn 39 minutes ago

Murph – You’ve got your hands full there in MO with your wack Gov and Senators. Some people don’t understand how many great people are in states that are majority MAGAs. AdLib 38 minutes ago

It was a logistical nightmare but we managed it An only 2 drivers glenn 37 minutes ago

Yes, Ad. Tragic. One piece of news from me….I have belonged to a conservative group on facebook for years but it has become a target of increasingly mad and shrill attacks. Far right wingers have swarmed the site to drive its moderate GOP crowd to the ground. Sadly, they have succeeded. The site folded yesterday. MurphTheSurf3 37 minutes ago

glenn – That is incredible! Did you tow the other vehicle or have to make multiple trips? Are the pets settled and happy? AdLib 36 minutes ago

Add I’m not sure what the people hear in Florida think I haven’t really talked to anyone except my daughter and son-in-law And my Oldest granddaughters family But I agree it would be a great thing for disantis to lose his office glenn 36 minutes ago

Murph – That’s terrible to hear. Wasn’t there a way for the conservative Facebook group to have a private page that locked out the MAGA loons? AdLib 35 minutes ago

Murph that is a shame about that Facebook group but that’s what seems to be happening all across the country with the radicals Driving everything everything I sure wish the media would stop giving them so much attention glenn 34 minutes ago

Add no we didn’t told the 3rd vehicle to my daughter had to start work On February 28 so she drove down in her car Then came back up the following weekend we get to Georgia flew up the following weekend to Georgia And we loaded it up there house my stuff from the assisted living for so And my stuff from storage and drive down to Georgia and to carve glenn 33 minutes ago

glenn – I would be very interested to hear what your take is after spending a bit more time there, about what other folks in FL are thinking about this madness DeSantis is performing on them. Some love it. Crazy! But he and the GOP majority in the Legislature have painted themselves in a corner with the attack on Disney, the financial entities that rate bonds for states say that unless they figure out the Disney debt that FL now owes, they will drop their ratings which will be a huge financial blow to the state. AdLib 33 minutes ago

Ad….part of the mission of the page was to provide a space for bonafide disagreement and debate. Making the group private was considered but the membership generally believed that doing this would undermine the group identity. MurphTheSurf3 33 minutes ago

Glenn..quite the production to relocate you. MurphTheSurf3 32 minutes ago

glenn – That makessense but going back and forth had to be exhausting. Moving just across town is exhausting but going all that distance, so glad it was successful and done now! AdLib 31 minutes ago

Add yes I will Try to keep my ear to the ground But I don’t get out much anymore I did see tonight where Florida may lose its credit rating because of desantis. Hopefully when it starts affecting the other businesses around the state They’ll start pushing back glenn 30 minutes ago

I have a friend in Florida in the condo business. He says that the shit has hit the fan among realtors who are scrambling to get ahead of the backlash that is coming as the real costs of the DeSantis move become clear- and all as an act of spit because Disney dared to disagree with Satan, Santis MurphTheSurf3 29 minutes ago

I saw tonight that Russian State TV is now openly discussing the possibility of nuclear engagement in the coming WWIII MurphTheSurf3 28 minutes ago

Murph – I’ve learned a lot about free speech and town squares in my decade plus running The Planet and while they had the best of intentions, it’s not really viable to have such an idealistic view of providing a forum for discussion. Freedom is always exploited by those with bad intent, whether it’s Russia trying to destroy our democracy or MAGA terrorists trying to destroy all who aren’t. For there to be a space for reasonable people to chat and debate, there must be boundaries that are enforced or you end up destroyed by the hateful ones out there, as these unfortunate people found out the hard way. AdLib 27 minutes ago

Ad…wise words….with your permission I will share them with the group (we still have an e mail tree) MurphTheSurf3 26 minutes ago

Murph yes it was a production. And now we’re getting ready for another production We are going to add On to the house And it’s a lot. We are going to remodel the kitchen All 3 bedrooms and add a bathroom. Right now we are waiting for permits and Drawings glenn 26 minutes ago

glenn – I hate to see other good people hurt in the short term in FL but if the states credit rating is trashed because of DeSantis and that helps bring him down, the long run for people in FL will be so much better. AdLib 26 minutes ago

Add agree with murph wise words indeed glenn 25 minutes ago

Glenn…fabulous…your own At Home Facelift. I am a fan of the networks that feature facelifts and rebuilds…Magnolia Network in Particular. MurphTheSurf3 25 minutes ago

Murph – Add to that, FL has the highest housing prices in the country thanks to DeSantis’ policies and lack of action to abate quickly rising rents and housing prices. A housing disaster made more urgent due to his stupidity with Disney and having no clue what this unconstitutional attack on free speech would lead to. AdLib 24 minutes ago

Murph We like HGTV too And watch that a lot glenn 23 minutes ago

Ad….My condo selling/leasing/renting friend has made that same observations. MurphTheSurf3 23 minutes ago

You have that right about the highest housing prices in Florida it was a mess trying to get this house I think I told you all somewhat about it the last time I was here glenn 22 minutes ago

Glenn…I was impressed at your efforts. MurphTheSurf3 22 minutes ago

Murph – I’m not in denial, I just don’t believe that Putin or those behind him really want to be nuked back. I think it is trying to use terror to make the US and NATO back off but it’s not going to work. It looks and smells desperate. Putin thinks the West is led by weak cowards because he’s always gotten away with his evil deeds. I pay no heed to these nuke threats, Putin and his trolls are so greedy for the luxuries of life and having money and power, the last thing they want is to lose all of that and be killed. AdLib 21 minutes ago

Well gentlemen. I know I haven’t been here long but my stamina is not what it used to be So I’m going to call it a night so great chatting with you tonight and in my case actually chatting anyway take care my friends and hopefully I will see you next week glenn 21 minutes ago

Murph – Please do and if you want, please share with them that I hope they can come back with a page or group too. It’s like insisting you don’t want to put locks on your door so neighbors can feel free to come by. The problem is, when vandals are inspired to come after people in the neighborhood, an unlocked door endangers the good people and empowers those of ill intent to cause harm. AdLib 19 minutes ago

Ad…I agree with your thoughts re. the likelihood of a nuclear exchange. What caught my eye was how unwise a public discussion re. that horror would be over the airwaves……I imagine that many are stunned by what such a threat implies about how well the war/military action if really going. MurphTheSurf3 18 minutes ago

glenn – I am SO happy that the voice software allowed you to chat with us as usual! Missed you! Get some rest and hope to see you next week, hopefully most folks can rejoin us then! AdLib 18 minutes ago

Good night and peaceful slumber, Glenn MurphTheSurf3 18 minutes ago

Ad….great analogy….I will be sharing that as well. I have been inviting several of my closet at the site to join us here. MurphTheSurf3 17 minutes ago

It is coming up on 10 and I am beat so I think I will slide off of here and into my bed. MurphTheSurf3 16 minutes ago

Honestly, Putin has been rattling the nuclear sword since the beginning and it just doesn’t scare the rest of the world as much now. Maybe he’ll defy all reason and launch a limited nuke of some kind but he knows that will be the last straw for the world and he and Russia must be obliterated after that. He wants to be a ruler of the new Russian Empire, not ruler of dust and ash…assuming he would be secured underground somewhere as Russia was obliterated. AdLib 16 minutes ago

Ad…your argument re. Putin as a Nuker is strong…..but it rests on the reality of reasonable and realistic Vlad the Mad. MurphTheSurf3 14 minutes ago

Murph – That would be great too, I would really welcome any of your conservative colleagues to come here and see that we can have kind and respectful conversations about issues even though we may disagree on a lot. That seems what they may prefer. And we can bond over our resentment of MAGA cultists! AdLib 14 minutes ago

Ad….perhaps my sharing of several of your comments here will entice them. MurphTheSurf3 13 minutes ago

But I don’t see Putin as crazy. I see him like a spoiled, greedy asshole who will take what he wants and assume everyone who wants to get in his way can be beaten by his amazing intellect and guile. He is deluded, not crazy IMO. AdLib 13 minutes ago

Putin is such a hidden person that it is hard for me to get a good read on him. His KGB origins are the root of KGB “Presidency”…..Well…with that high note to end up with….I shall withdraw. Good night friend. MurphTheSurf3 12 minutes ago

That would be great! I’ve never been seeking The Planet to be exclusive to those with similar political views. The problem has been that whenever we try to make a comfortable space for Repubs, they turn out to get hostile because people here are well informed and rebut their views effectively. AdLib 11 minutes ago

Goodnight Murph. Get some rest and sending my best thoughts to your friend and his family. AdLib 11 minutes ago

I will keep your thoughtful reflection on your experience with the “right” here as I encourage participation. MurphTheSurf3 10 minutes ago

Nite! MurphTheSurf3 10 minutes ago
