Join Atlas Shrugged Producer Harmon Kaslow and Associate Producer Scott DeSapio (me) for a live comment streaming event in the Gulch during the 1st GOP Primary debates tonight. Get your popcorn and settle in. This is gonna be good.

Inspired by jbrenner's comment yesterday ( http://www.galtsgulchonline.com/posts... ) we've put together a live streaming comment feature that will enable all Gulch members to engage in a real-time conversation while watching the debate. It's kind of like chat... but... not.

HOW IT WORKS:
1. At 5PM ET, go to the Gulch Activity feed: http://www.galtsgulchonline.com/activ...
2. At the top, you'll see a "Gulch Live" box.
3. Type your comment, submit, and poof, your comment will be automatically injected into the stream - along with everyone else's comments as well.

NOTE
- Post your comments in the Activity Feed for the best experience. If you post your comments here, you'll not see the live stream responses and things might get a little confusing.
- When addressing someone on the feed, consider using @membername to address them directly or no one will no who you're talking to.
- All comments submitted to the feed will automatically be added to this post.

Thanks Jim for the suggestion. Let's do this.

EDIT: Thanks to everyone who participated last night. Harmon and I had a great time and we're very much looking forward to the next Gulch Live event!

Scott

      Agreed. However, to Santorum's credit, he is the only candidate who uttered these words a few years back in rebuttal to accusations of the Repubs wanting to shut down the EPA:
      "The earth is here for us...we aren't here for the earth."

      I agree. I watched Jindal closely only because the ship I worked on based out of Louisiana His performance as compared to that blanko was spectacular. If I was absolutely forced in to voting for a Republican he would be the choice.

      As compared to the so called front runners? What need of lapdogs for the Democrats?

      As for debates. What a great way to waste time? No thank you I already puked once that year.

    Oh my ... the Steve Jobs trailer ... looks like another Steve Jobs movie that fails miserably to recognize what Jobs did for this country ... He's a hero ... a visionary ... yes, I own a Mac ... yes, I own an Android phone (not an iphone) ... yes, I own Apple stock ...

    Well, I couldn't do that. I don't have an Internet
    computer at home, and the library wasn't even o-
    pen at that time. I didn't even know about the
    "streaming" arrangement. But I did listen to it,(the
    big debate, I mean) on my radio.

    Previously, I was discontented with Trump
    mainly because his candidacy interfered with
    Walker's. But then, Trump's arrogance gave me
    an even worse impression. He seems even wil-
    ling to play a "spoiler" role and get the Democrat
    in. He was also brazen about his willingness to,
    in effect, bribe politicians, and not to be embar-
    rassed about his lack of principle.

    As to Walker, I am afraid he has lost at
    least one vote--mine. Perhaps I should have
    known about it before, but his opposition to al-
    lowing ANY abortion, even in case of rape, is
    unconscionable. When asked about saving the
    life of the mother, he made remarks about the
    mother's life being saved in some other (un-
    specified) way, which is evidence of his trying
    to impose his wishes on reality, rather than
    confronting it.---I am sad and disillusioned, but
    better before than after. Perhaps I will vote for
    Ted Cruz in the primary.
