Hey Murph! AdLib 2 hours ago

Hey Ad….I will be here tonight….left you an e mail with a request to post something here….I remain an idiot when it comes to posting images at The Planet. I think the image and its site location are worth passing on to our crowd. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

I’ll look at it now. AdLib 2 hours ago

I am working for the Kunce Campaign now… MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

MEET LUCAS KUNCE Lucas Kunce grew up in Cole County, Missouri. Like most Missouri families, his family lived paycheck-to-paycheck. When his sister was born with a heart condition, they went bankrupt, relying on the generosity of their neighbors to make it. Through Pell grants, scholarships, and the kindness of people around town, he made it to college. He then spent 13 years as a Marine officer, serving in both Iraq and Afghanistan, and representing our country in arms control negotiations with Russia. He then worked at a nonprofit that fights back against the corporate monopolies that dominate our economy and our politics. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Kunce left active duty in 2020 with the rank of major, joining the American Economic Liberties Project as their director of national security. He continues to serve in the United States Marine Corps Reserve. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Nice! I know of him! AdLib 2 hours ago

He’s running for Senate? AdLib 2 hours ago

In MO. He is so needed to win, as uphill a campaign as it is. AdLib 2 hours ago

He us running for the U.S. Senate. He is an attorney (and self taught economist). MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

MO is now among the worst, fascist states along with FL, TX, AL, MS. AdLib 2 hours ago

And Greitens is back! AdLib 2 hours ago

He is not a St. Louis guy….He is from Cole County. Cole County is located in the central part of the U.S. state of Missouri. As of the 2020 census, its population was 77,279. Its county seat and largest city is Jefferson City, the state capital. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Looking at the Repub candidates around the country looks identical to a police log. AdLib 2 hours ago

A Perp Line, Mug Shots galore. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Most Wanted AdLib 2 hours ago

And in a criminal way, not popularity-wise. AdLib 2 hours ago

Wife beaters, theives, pedophiles, violent and gun wielding thugs, murderers, it doesn’t stop. One who won their primary is in jail for killing his wife! AdLib 2 hours ago

The GOP Brand has been deeply hurt. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

This is more than deeply hurt, this is derangement. The GOP is unhinged, it is the party of insane hatred. AdLib 2 hours ago

I think you are correct. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

I will return on the hour….getting something to eat and drink. Worked at County Kunce HQ. for five hours today. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

They have lost any connection to decency. Lying, hypocrisy, false accusations, pandering to racism, homophobia, Nazism, dictatorships and authoritarianism, it is all now done with no conscience, the lust for power justifies it to them and their deranged followers. This is so dangerous and it’s succeeding here and there. With the SCOTUS now part of this movement to take away power and rights from the people, we are in the most dangerous moment in America’s history, including the Civil War and WWII. AdLib 2 hours ago

Sounds good, you are doing the work of fighting for America! AdLib 2 hours ago

Your summary…just copied into my active file. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Thanks. I would just add that in the Civil War, the US was under threat as a union and continuing slavery but not turning into a dictatorship while in WWII there was the threat but not a realistic threat of the US being taken over by a dictator. This is the first time in US history where the concrete actions to end our democracy and install a dictatorship of the elite and the minority have been taken and are being accomplished.

Hey TW! AdLib 2 hours ago

Hey everyone twilson117 2 hours ago

The population in Boston has declined by 1 this week. AdLib 2 hours ago

Hi TW MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

So your daughter is back home for the summer Ad? twilson117 2 hours ago

Hey Murph twilson117 2 hours ago

Murph how are things your way, they Repubs must be dancing in the street with the leaked SC Decision on abortion. twilson117 2 hours ago

Yep TW, home from college for the Summer. It’s such a normal thing to hear but a strange thing for me to say (for the first time in my life). AdLib 2 hours ago

Hi TW…I am focusing a lot of my extra time and energy, of which there is not a lot, working for the U.S. Senate Campaign of Lucas Kunce. I posted a lot of info on him earlier in the stream here. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Ad, there will come a time when she may decide to stay and go to the Cape so prepare for that. twilson117 2 hours ago

And what has snapped in all these Repubs who are now so aggressively about announcing they won’t allow abortions for the sake of the mother’s life, for incest or rape? This is like shouting about what monsters they are and how inhuman they are. AdLib 2 hours ago

I will check that out Murph twilson117 2 hours ago

TW – Yep, she already told me she plans on staying out there for Thanksgiving next year and staying with a friend in NY. AdLib 2 hours ago

TW….as to GOP reaction to the leaked Alito brief……interesting…a lot of back slapping and praising in public and a lot of furrowed brows and glum stances in private. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Staying with a friend in NY? Wow twilson117 2 hours ago

Murph – I can say pretty confidently that in blue states and swing states, the destruction of Roe will make a big difference in turnout and Dem success but what do you think in MO and other red states? A majority of Repub women want abortion to be legal too. Would they be moved to vote for someone like Kunce to save their own rights from being torn away from them and their daughters? Or is the cruelty amd tribalism too embedded to save themselves from being owned by their state?? AdLib 2 hours ago

Murph about what I would expect. I’ve been trying to wade my way through it but have to stop because logic of the decision is out there and I’m not lawyer. twilson117 2 hours ago

Ad…one of the former co-op, now association, has his first child, a son, in college at Pepperdine…..first year and he has already opted to remain if CA for Thanksgiving and Spring Break. He is a very fine young man. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

TW – Yes, one of her friends at college is from NY, her family is there. And she has other friends in MA now who she might also spend time with over the holiday. AdLib 2 hours ago

Ad….I fondly recall the Lysistrata Ladies here and hope that the seed of that rational zeal is still alive. MurphTheSurf3 2 hours ago

Ad, when my daughter went off I told her she I wasn’t paying for her to come home for Thanksgiving and Christmas because they were back to back. My wife pulled me aside and told me, she could come home as often as she wanted. My only response was, yes dear. twilson117 an hour ago

The Mo Senate is taking up a bill to limit access to chemically provided contraception…..and there are rumbles about addressing civil right protections for blacks. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Murph – Perpperdine is in such an amazing location, by the ocean and beach and especially during the Fall and Winter, very nice place to be weather-wise. I used to think FL was a peer with LA on that but now having been to FL a few times and knowing they are even worse under DeSantis, FL doesn’t hold a candle to LA. AdLib an hour ago

Ad…my dad used to say that in 50 years of marriage he and my mother had a deal. She made all the small decisions. He made all the big ones…then he would pause and say “So far, in 50 years, no major ones!” MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Murph – I would hope this would not only bring the Lysistrata Ladies back but multiply their number substantially. This is the new slavery of women, they are going to be property of the state when pregnant, that is beyond sitting around and frowning. AdLib an hour ago

And I saw that MO along with TX and FL and another state has laws that state that a woman can’t get divorced from her husband when she is pregnant, only after a birth. This is madness!!! AdLib an hour ago

I had a brief conversation with Tom two days ago….a year on the Left Coast at a Liberal Powerhouse Academic Powerhouse has given me a glimpse of the man he is going to become. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

TW – Yes! I remember your telling me that before my daughter went away and I learned from your advice! AdLib an hour ago
