Hey Adlib twilson117 2 hours ago

Hey TW! How are you doing? AdLib 2 hours ago

Doing okay. Granddaughter will be heading out early tomorrow. My daughter will be taking her home she is spending the night with her. But we miss her already. twilson117 2 hours ago

I was reading last week’s conversation saw at the tail end you and Murph talking about possible visual conversation on vox? twilson117 2 hours ago

Aw…at least you had the time with her that you did. AdLib 2 hours ago

Yes, I’m leaning more towards an audio-only conversation instead of video though. AdLib 2 hours ago

Some people don’t have cameras, some don’t have fast internet and some folks might want to keep their appearance private if they’re in red states. AdLib an hour ago

Yes, she spent the first week with her aunt and last week and part of this week with us. Spent lot of money on books for her, movies and museum of science in Boston twilson117 an hour ago

Voice huh. How will you handle the talk over? twilson117 an hour ago

Sounds like it was a lot of fun. Nice to spoil grandkids though, right? AdLib an hour ago

Yes she is clearly spoiled and she knows it. Can’t believe she will be 16 in two months. twilson117 an hour ago

Some programs let the host moderate conversations, people can text in the app to say they want to jump in. AdLib an hour ago

I can’t believe my daughter is 19. AdLib an hour ago

Yes and now a college sophomore or second year student, I think that’s the preferred terminology. The do grow up fast. twilson117 an hour ago

As to the voice if we have to type in our response how is that different from what we’re doing now? twilson117 an hour ago

The last few years kind of flew by, the previous years seemed much more moderate in speed of passage. AdLib an hour ago

How it would work with that system is that a person would merely message to the host they want to jump in then the host would open their mike. AdLib an hour ago

I mean it would be nice to see everyone visually but I understand not everyone has a camera and the internet speed can be a problem. Along with controlling it. twilson117 an hour ago

To be clear not oppose just wondering how it would work. I know it’s usually just been the four of us. twilson117 an hour ago

I think a rotation of talking would also be easy to set up. AdLib an hour ago

We would need a system though so it wasn’t a free-for-all and someone might get sidelined. AdLib an hour ago

Yes you would. twilson117 an hour ago

Hey glenn! How are you doing today? AdLib an hour ago

He Glenn how are you? twilson117 an hour ago

Hi Ad and TW! I’m doing well, how are you both? glenn an hour ago

Doing okay Glenn. twilson117 an hour ago

Interesting concept of the audio VOX glenn an hour ago

I’m doing well, thanks glenn. AdLib an hour ago

Would you be interested in an audio Vox, glenn? AdLib an hour ago

TW–I know how you feel, missing your granddaughter. As you say, they grow up so quickly; glenn an hour ago

Glenn, you’re correct about that. twilson117 an hour ago

Ad—yes, I think an audio Vox would be great. glenn an hour ago

Until you go through it, you don’t fully understand when others have told you, “They grow up fast.” AdLib an hour ago

Glenn her last visit was three years ago couldn’t come back due to COVID. twilson117 an hour ago

So how do we feel about Build Back Better finally passing and taxes being mandatory for corporations and Climate Change being funded? McConnell looks like a fool too. AdLib an hour ago

TW–Ad–ain’t that the truth about not realizing how fast they grow up. I feel like it was just yesterday I was picking up my granddaughter from school. Now she’s in her sophomore year of college and will be 19 yo the 18th of August! glenn an hour ago

I read a piece today that Trump** has gotten help with his financial situation to the point he’s now cash flush to the tune of 300+ million. twilson117 an hour ago

TW–Three years is a ling time to go without seeing her; especially during her teen years. They change so much during those years. glenn an hour ago

Wishing your grandaughter a happy birthday! My daughter is a rising sophomore in college as well, I thought of your grandaughter playing soccer as a youngster and my daughter doing the same in softball and now…college students! AdLib an hour ago

Glenn you’re right about that, she has grown so much. But she is on the short side 4:11 and not likely to grow any more. She is short like her mom. twilson117 an hour ago

TW – All the more hundreds of millions for those suing Trump to get. He should be left penniless by the time all the civil lawsuits are done with him. AdLib an hour ago

Ad I do agree with you. twilson117 an hour ago

Ad–best part about Build Back Be Better passing is McConnell looking like a fool. Then he goes and blocks the veterans bill to prove what an evil fool he is! glenn an hour ago

TW – I don’t see how Trump can have grounds to stand against all the civil suits since in civil court, it’s a preponderence of the evidence and not as in a criminal court, beyond a shadow of a doubt. AdLib an hour ago

Glenn blocking the vet’s bill is not looking good for the Repugs. Not good at all. twilson117 an hour ago

glenn – Yes! McConnell lies all the time but he did claim that if Repubs didn’t take the majority this year in The Senate that he would retire. I don’t care if Dems at least hold the House, gain 2+ seats in The Senate, trash the filibuster and pass a flurry of legislation to rescue and protect our democracy. AdLib an hour ago

Ad he got help from an old friend on refinancing a lot of his debt along with a bank Jared turn him on to. But Trump’s problems deep and long. twilson117 an hour ago

TW–I didn’t see that about the TLB being flush with cash. I did see a headline–didn’t read the article because can only read so many abut him–that says the RNC won’t continue to pay his legal bills if he runs for pres in 2024 glenn an hour ago

TW – The Ted Cruz fist bump on denying healthcare to vets is so devastating to him and Repubhs. AdLib an hour ago

TW – Yep but if he is indicted as I think he will be and loses a number of civil suits, Trump will find loans called in and the cashflow reduced to a drip. He may not end up imprisoned but he should be bankrupted. AdLib an hour ago

Ad–yes it’s so delightful that your daughter and my granddaughter are on such similar paths. glenn an hour ago

And now that the 1/6 committee has succeeded in exposing what an anti-democratic monster Trump is, the Murdoch entities have been pounding a stake in his heart. I think Trump is done and he will disintegrate as the cases proceed against him. AdLib an hour ago

Glenn he got help to get him out from under on loans coming due, an old friend came to his rescue along with Jared introducing to a bank that helped. But I did see were the RNC said if he didn’t stop bashing candidates they would stop paying his legal bills. twilson117 an hour ago

TW–I was also referring to her growth in maturity during the teen years. It is a wonder to behold! glenn an hour ago

glenn – Yes, I’ve enjoyed that and hearing about your granddaughter’s adventures! AdLib an hour ago

Ad–penniless and in jail. glenn an hour ago

Do you think Trump will be indicted in GA or by the DoJ? AdLib an hour ago

Ad let’s see how long the Murdoch snub lasts. twilson117 an hour ago

TW – There was no such thing as a Murdoch snub before this, they seem to have clearly jumped ship to join the DeSantis machine. AdLib an hour ago

Ad I think he will and that will be great, when it happens, we should through a party. twilson117 an hour ago

Ad–hope you’re correct. So many lawsuits for the TLB to defend. Did you see where he has threatened (again) to sue CNN? glenn an hour ago

Murph is in the house. Hey Murph twilson117 an hour ago

I think Trump will first be indicted as part of a RICO case in GA and then indicted by the DoJ. So anxious for GA to indict that orange disaster. AdLib an hour ago

Hey Murph! AdLib an hour ago

Hi…what’s up. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad–no I don’t think he’ll be indicted. At least not by the DOJ, maybe GA, but somehow or other he seems to weasel out of indictments. glenn an hour ago

Ad I don’t care as long as he gets indicted. twilson117 an hour ago

glenn – So funny, could you imagine the discovery phase of a lawsuit if Trump sued CNN for “lying” about Trump being a liar and promoting “The Big Lie”? It’s just a phony threat. AdLib an hour ago

TW…just read your note about Trump being flush with cash from sources unknown…..anything else about this? MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Hey Murph–how’re you doing tonight? glenn an hour ago

Murph – I saw Kunce kicking ass this week on Twitter, he’s looking fearless and determined. AdLib an hour ago

Glenn…I am working my butt off for Kunce…the next three days I will be pounding away for votes. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad–I sure hope you’re right about the indictments, but I really don’t think it’s gong to happen. glenn an hour ago

Ad….fearless and determined……as Trudy Busch Valentine is feckless and dull. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad–I know–put the liar under oath. glenn an hour ago

glenn – I think GA’s indictment of Trump is impending and unavoidable. He is on tape literally asking for fake votes to be given to him. As for the DoJ, I think it would be very hard for them to not indict Trump, it would be an invitation to the overthrow of our democracy in 2024. I haven’t been a big fan of Garland but I can’t imagine he wants to go down in history as the man who let Trump destroy our democracy. AdLib an hour ago

Murph just that he made money from the sale of the DC Hotel the Old Post Office, Jared hooked him out with a bank that has refinanced several of his notes that are due and an old business friend helped him out with some refinancing other loans to the point he has about 300 mill in the bank. twilson117 an hour ago

Everyone knows it’s a phony threat…. glenn an hour ago

TW….so why would most of the folks help him out…where’s there advantage? MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Murph–good on ya!! Kunce is lucky to have you working for him. glenn an hour ago

And on top of everything else, gas prices are down and have been for over a month, this anti-inflation bill is being passed and Repubs are at a loss on what they can use in Nov to argue that their treason is preferable to Dems in power. AdLib an hour ago
