Sounds vaguely familiar, phone gaps, Nixonish
Linda Bock
21:29
Nixonish, indeed
Roy Pardee
22:26
unfortunately, noone can charge Justice Thomas
Roy Pardee
22:56
AOC is calling for Thomas' impeachment I believe

23:22
SOUNDS LIKE TRUMP PRE-ELECTION DURING THE CAMPAIGN DURING HIS PRESIDENCY AND AFTERWARDS —NOTHING BUT A DEGENERATE
Ken Dammand
24:50
It's a very short trip from hero to hindquarter in Trumpville
Pia Kanistros
24:59
A lot of Republicans running for office in Ohio have been running I am supporting and am Trump strong. Seems to be the day that I notice all of a sudden they're not talking about Trump
Linda Brewster
25:36
I have never heard that wonderful phrase - hero to hindquarter!!!
Pia Kanistros
25:57
To me that should be against the Constitution and not eb allowed!
Carol Sullivan Bothell
26:07
Find “fraud” to justify their existence?
Linda Brewster
29:34
Welcome to all the new faces I am seeing here tonight!
Linda Brewster
30:15
Hope springs eternal!
Roy Pardee
30:19
may it be so!
Linda Brewster
30:37
That's what I meant about hope...
Karen Barron
31:16
Have they no shame? Soooo obvious!
Roy Pardee
31:47
Can't spell "crazy" without R-AZ
Pia Kanistros
33:09
SHOULD BE ALLOWED AT POST OFFICES, PHARMACIES, LIBRARY, NOT JUST BOARD OF ELECTION. THAT IS RIDICULOUS. ANYONE WHO TRIES TO PREVENT VOTING SHOULD BE ARRESTED VIOLATING YOUR RIGHTS I DON’T CARE WHERE YOU LIVE! SHOLD UPDATE YOUR ABILITY TO VOTES WHEN YOU RENEW YOUR LICENSE OR STATE ID’S
Linda Brewster
33:36
Pia is so right!!
Pia Kanistros
33:50
TALK ABOUT VIOLATING YOUR RIGHTS AS A CITIZEN OF THIS COUNTRY THAT SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED THE SUPREME COURT SHOULD NIX THAT IN THE BUD OTHERWISE THEY'RE NO LONGER A DEMOCRACY
Roy Pardee
33:52
I wonder if it would help to use the number of votes actually cast in a state to allocate reps in the House?
Linda Brewster
34:19
I love that idea Roy!!!
Roy Pardee
34:50
Heh--that's basically the 15th amendment section 2
Roy Pardee
35:51
(except drop the limitation to 'Male's)
Karen Barron
36:54
1984
David Gordon
38:00
several laws making it legal to use a car to hit protesters
Pia Kanistros
38:29
Funny how the GOP are talking and running on immigration and all the drugs being allowed in and the criminals yet I see more criminals in our Congress and in state legislators then I see coming through the borders
Pia Kanistros
38:45
Ohio is having big problems with gerrymandering
Pia Kanistros
40:53
Ohio Supreme Court in Ohio has rejected Ohio’s GOP gerrymandering 4 times
Pia Kanistros
42:11
Bottom line the GOPER’s want to cheat to win and degenerate un-Democratic behavior
Nancy Street
42:42
Susan Collins is going to support her.
Pia Kanistros
43:05
Yeah Susan Collins!!!!!!!
USAIVA, Rich Stevenson
43:28
Senator Susan Collins reported will vote for Jackson. Just saw it on TV.
David Gordon
44:11
Susan Collins only votes correct when her vote doesn't matter. When it matters (e.g., Kavenaugh), she always votes with GOP
Roy Pardee
44:14
shamelessness is their super-power
Pia Kanistros
44:28
that’s what they are all about
Roy Pardee
45:17
<3 popular information
Roy Pardee
45:46
yeah--really good ep of NYT's The Daily podcast on this yesterday too
David & Ruth Neal
48:12
Oh how I wish all media and others stop showing Trump's face constantly! why give him so much publicity?
Jeremy Chase
48:29
^ this
Roy Pardee
48:49
God bless Schiff!
Nancy Street
49:03
Agreed. WE have to hear about Trump every day!
David Gordon
49:53
"viewpoint-neutral"--the Supreme court could use that to say that most restrictions are not "viewpoint-neutral".
David Gordon
50:16
Also this allows corporations to still claim 1st Amendment and 14th amendment rights.
David Gordon
50:29
It doesn't revoke corporate personhood
Roy Pardee
51:28
and then contraception
David & Ruth Neal
52:39
Republicans want to go back to 1950 with Jim crow etc.
Matthew Munsey
52:54
or 1850
Nancy Street
53:00
What is the composition of Independents?
Jackie Aase
54:16
Jefferson County Democrats are 90% over 65 y/o.
Dwight Rousu
54:22
Or the independents are confused by all the propaganda and lies and do not know what to believe.
Nancy Street
55:19
Aren't a lot of Libertarians Independents?
USAIVA, Rich Stevenson
55:31
Dwight you have that right. Confused and not represented.

Yeah some are but also a lot of disgusted Democrats (at the influence of money on their representatives) are also Independents...
Tish Levee
57:13
Yes, Nancy, pronbably, as well as American Independent Party and Green Party
Tish Levee
58:25
Nancy. also a lot of “Deline to State” folk’
nancy gill
01:00:57
are we supposed to be seeing different slides? not happening
Roy Pardee
01:01:53
it's working
nancy gill
01:02:15
ok, see it now. sorry
Pia Kanistros
01:02:25
all people elected to office whatever party they are from are to represent all the people in their state. However that is not the case with the GOPer’s. They represent themselves.
Nancy Street
01:04:05
what is PS4?
Roy Pardee
01:04:15
playstation 4--game console
Roy Pardee
01:05:04
what I'm hearing is--the internet was a mistake; do not go on social media ;-)
Nancy Street
01:05:29
Thank you
Pia Kanistros
01:08:35
me too Jeremy
Mary Thompson
01:08:43
Been there. I so relate to these experiences that Jeremy describes. Thank you for this validation of what goes on!
Pia Kanistros
01:09:45
But then again at time Facebook has but me in their facebook jail for things I did not do or say. They do not allow you to explain your remarks yet they allow others words of violence.

Need directon on how to access and use a VPN.
David Gordon
01:11:39
I use a VPN and they are a pain in the a** since most services detect that you are using one and deny you services (e.g., ordering online, watching movies, etc.)
Matthew Munsey
01:11:40
But worth noting that you are putting all your trust in the VPN - they then see ALL your traffic. Even more importantly, use encryption everywhere possible.
David Gordon
01:12:51
Tor has a long waiting list, last time I checked. You can't just get an account.
Matthew Munsey
01:14:05
Also, Tor has been sometimes been infiltrated by nation states that put up traffic relays in the middle, yet again able to see all your traffic if you go through them.
Cindy Black, Fix Democracy First
01:14:25
Tor - https://www.torproject.org/
Carol Sullivan Bothell
01:15:39
Glad this will be available to view later, because I need to leave now. Thanks, Cindy. (and Jeremy)
Roy Pardee
01:15:49
I thought the joy of TOR is that there's a whole string of servers between you & the ultimate website you're browsing, and so any single server being compromised is harmless?/
Matthew Munsey
01:17:16
If the rogue server happens to be the one you connect to, then it sees everything you do...
Pia Kanistros
01:17:44
there are certainly “Dope&Mean” idiots out there for sure
Cindy Black, Fix Democracy First
01:22:14
I remember message boards.
Max Bauman
01:24:15
Remember when THQ-Nordic originally said they'd have their Q&A hosted on 8chan?
Max Bauman
01:24:30
Boy, those were the times...

In a democracy espousing free speech: How can and should these venues be regulated?
Dwight Rousu
01:36:22
Even dead people are still on farcebook

Yes, I strongly recommend bring Jeremy back for further discussion on this important topic. Thank you, Jermey.
Kate Butt
01:39:51
Jeremy, rather than old I use the term "vintage'. :😁 Former Firewall Engineer.
USAIVA, Rich Stevenson
01:41:30
What about The Google Password manager in Chrome. I use it. to Auto log in.
Dwight Rousu
01:42:22
Does bringing up TOR and accessing facebook protect information from being collected on you by farcebook?
Karen Barron
01:43:29
Why do you need Signal or any social media to keep up to date? There are a LOT of other information sources?
USAIVA, Rich Stevenson
01:44:58
Thank heaven for CBS Nightly News. Right????
USAIVA, Rich Stevenson
01:45:06
CNN???
USAIVA, Rich Stevenson
01:45:21
MSNBC???
Dwight Rousu
01:45:58
If you access facebook on a cell phone, is all your cell phone info harvestable?

Mother Jones????

Nation????
Matthew Munsey
01:46:52
You might be alerted to something you wouldn't otherwise see from traditional sources, but then you want to look for primary sources to corroborate it.
Dwight Rousu
01:47:07
Reader Supported News, The Intercept, Guardian
Julie Martinson
01:48:18
Truthout, too
Ellen Stoecker
01:48:22
