3. Thanks!

I watched the last one, definitely worthwhile, but I had to miss this one so I'm catching up now and thought others who missed it might be interested, too.

6. That is so amazing, I've only met one before in person.

That bird used to fool the dogs of the house by impersonating the owners' voices - and they listened!

8. I haven't watched this one yet, but I did see the last one and it was very good!

And Steve Schmidt is always worth a listen!

9. It was very interesting...

And hopeful.

They are going to do a livestream of the shitshow, they even called it that, so that they can fact check and talk about the speakers and what they are lying about. I might try to watch some of that.

10. I don't know if I can take it, I've had more than enough of Trump - and minions.

But I enjoy hearing these guys talking about it. They definitely have plans and I'm very glad that they're on "our side," and I don't doubt that they are - at least when it comes to defeating Trump.

11. I watched most of it. One thing I notice. They are proud to be republicans and don't

acknowledge the voter suppression and racism of their party before trump. Yet, I do enjoy listening to their take on things.

12. I think Stuart Stevens talks about that in his book and in interviews I've seen, but there other

questions that they will have to confront, such as what is REALLY meant by a "small government conservative" ? Does it mean gutting the USPS ? Does it mean gutting the ACA ? After the GE, I would like to hear them talk about that, because as it stands, a lot of it was low tax for the rich, and low services for the people.

14. I watched a lot of their stuff and I have seen that, and quite a number have acknowledged their part

in it, acknowledged that the Republican Party needs to be burnt to the ground, and their desire to create a new conservative party as a counterweight to the Democratic Party (the Lincoln Party, I would guess). My wider concern is where they place this new party on the spectrum, is it a reset to back to W, or Eisenhower ? But for now, the most important thing is to get Trump out.
