• AdLib : Thanks CL! Best to you and Hubby!

  • choicelady : I think I’m done picking up the trash. Have a grand weekend, AdLib – love to the family! Sweet dreams!

  • AdLib : It all sounds promising, keeping HOPE alive!

  • choicelady : Yes – I did take three days off this week. Absolutely exhausted from three previous straight weeks of work, no weekends off. But I will be trekking the Capitol Steps to take HOPE around again. Things might be more receptive since Elections committee has nothing immediately pressing. I will see the woman in Steinberg’s office, too. So wish me well!

  • AdLib : CL – No worries, I like eating the last of the peanuts from the bowls as I sweep up Vox. Have a great weekend!

  • AdLib : So CL, is next week your week to get HOPE’n?

  • choicelady : Well,AdLib – I guess we’re closing up the bar and left with the cleaning. I’ll throw out the trash if you’ll sweep up the popcorn? See you next week I trust? GOOD discussion. I hope Sally and Sue aren’t angry – we really ARE trying to help.

  • choicelady : Sally – you still here or have you gone to post for Sunday?

  • choicelady : AdLib – LOL!!!! Perfect!

  • AdLib : CL – Nothing succeeds like failure. And I mean nothing.

  • AdLib : KT – Sounds good! Spring, nature, growth, life, beauty, so much to go with!

  • choicelady : AdLib. You nailed it. Nitwit. He’s an old DSoc person, but most of them have SOME sense. He lives in La-la land.

  • choicelady : Now KT – here in CA Phil did his job! We will be in the 80s next week, a full 10 degrees above normal. Send Phil a ticket to Fresno!

  • AdLib : CL – I don’t know this guy but may I say…he sounds like a total nitwit.

  • KillgoreTrout : Ad, I was thinking about Spring, new life, seasons. What do you think? Oh and a stern dressing down of Punksatawney Phil!

  • choicelady : Nope. No game plan that is different from what everyone has already done. We will probably get a “commission” to “study” single payer. When I pointed out that what’s missing is an economic analysis, he said the “commission” would provide it. I said how – he said Jerry has money. I refrained from laughing.

  • AdLib : CL – So they don’t have any clue about a workable game plan to get single payer passed?

  • AdLib : Night KT! Have a great weekend! Look forward to your music thread, do you know what theme yet?

  • choicelady : AdLib – the degree of delusion is horrifying. As noted, he failed last year. So, of course, we’re repeating the same awful experience expecting different outcomes. Makes sense, yesssssss?

  • AdLib : CL – Depends if you fry up that tweeter.

  • choicelady : KT – adieu indeed! Sweet dreams, mostly about chewable food.

  • AdLib : CL – So he doesn’t quite get the whole “branches of government” thing? Like, Govs can’t pass legislation and stuff like that. And when they kill a bill, it’s their fault it doesn’t become law?

  • KillgoreTrout : Well good peeps, I must bid you adieu! Or goodnight or gutten nacht, whatever.

  • choicelady : AdLib – what’s the calorie count in a Woofer and Tweeter?

  • AdLib : I’d like to see Jared eat those every day and lose weight!

  • choicelady : Rationalizing. Their Policy director thinks Jerry likes him and that he can get Jerry to do what he wants. First – not true on the face of it. Second – most of what we need is via the entire Legislature, and the Policy director does not seem to understand the process. We are equals – I know how it works. How can he NOT know how it works? But he doesn’t. He thinks glad handing will get the job done. Well – didn’t work last year. Not workin’ now.

  • KillgoreTrout : Sub woofer sandwich! Too funny.

  • KillgoreTrout : CL, only if it was made in Greece.

  • AdLib : A SubWoofer Sandwich.

  • choicelady : KT – I thought an electronic Gyro was one of those whirly toys?

  • AdLib : So does the CNA knows Brown killed single payer or are they rationalizing that away?

  • KillgoreTrout : An electronic Gyro?

  • choicelady : AdLib – Damned if I can understand it all. Jerry is a major disappointment to be generous about it. But when we had Garamendi, Newsome, and many others in the pool, they went with Jerry. The CNA has made clear they think they elected him, and they can’t get over their “we are thick with Jer” mantra DESPITE the FACT that HE told state senators NOT to pass single payer last year. He sold them out. They lie down with the sign “Kick me Again” on their bellies.

  • AdLib : KT – A flat screen on flat bread.

  • AdLib : CL – But the food looks so good in the commercials!
