Hey TW!

AdLib21 hours ago

Hey Ad are we the only ones on tonight?

twilson117

21 hours ago

So far.

AdLib21 hours ago

Holiday time is always iffy.

AdLib21 hours ago

I’m sure more will show up, but it is Christmas time people out shopping maybe?

twilson117

21 hours ago

Yes, and some people are already travelling to see family.

AdLib21 hours ago

How are you doing?

AdLib21 hours ago

Yeah I forgot about that travelling part.

twilson117

21 hours ago

I’m fine.

twilson117

Looking forward to Monday when the 1/6 Committee will make the first criminal referrals against a president to the DoJ.

AdLib21 hours ago

Glad to hear.

AdLib21 hours ago

Daughter flies home in 4 days.

AdLib21 hours ago

Oh I’m sure you’re happy about that. It’s starting to get cold up here, and we had a snow dusting couple of days ago nothing big.

twilson117

21 hours ago

And Musk has crossed the line at Twitter by suspending accounts of journalists just for writing about him or his suspending the guy publishing public info on Elon’s flights.

AdLib21 hours ago

Not bad at all. Been a little cold here but not terrible. Supposedly will be warming up in time for my daughter’s arrival.

AdLib21 hours ago

Did you get your Trump trading cards?

AdLib21 hours ago

Yes he has was listening he Chris Hayes do his take on it. All the others on MSNBC have been reporting out on how is being the bully. It seems he is mimicking the behavior he had to endure when he was growing up.

twilson117

21 hours ago

You mean Musk?

AdLib21 hours ago

Yes Musk, everyone on MSNBC are talking about it and bringing in various experts to discuss it. Joy had one of the reporters he blocked.

twilson117

21 hours ago

Any word on CL’s meeting with the eye specialist?

twilson117

21 hours ago

A number of them have joined Mastadon which is the alternative site I signed up for. It’s kind of deja vu, same thing happened a decade ago with Huffington Post and PlanetPOV had waves of members come over from there. Eventually, most settled into Twitter and Facebook. Now the jumping ship is happening with Twitter.

AdLib21 hours ago

Hi TW and Ad – nice to see you!

choicelady

21 hours ago

Speak of the angel, here’s CL!

AdLib21 hours ago

CL is in the house. How are you and how did your meeting with the specialilst go?

twilson117

21 hours ago

BTW, heard back from Murph that he’s recuperating from working so hard on the election and related things. He said he’ll be back at Vox soon.

AdLib21 hours ago

Sorry I’m late – dinner intruded. TW the eye people were great. I think they’ve pinned down the solutions. The thyroid? Meh. But I will soldier on.

choicelady

21 hours ago

CL that’s great news

twilson117

21 hours ago

Dinner comes first, then conversation. Doing both at the same time ends up very messy.

AdLib21 hours ago

Ad, I was wondering if that was the reason, he was working pretty hard.

twilson117

21 hours ago

Ad – that is VERY true. During the Family Reunion, I had three other women in my kitchen, nearly went mad much as I love them. Everyone needed something, everyone had things to say. I don’t do conversation well anymore. It was really stressful despite how much I enjoyed their just being present.

choicelady

21 hours ago

TW – Yep, he worked hard in MO then when the straw woman candidate won the Dem primary, he went to IL. Sounds exhausting to me.

AdLib21 hours ago

CL – I really understand. When I’m in the midst of working on something to get it done quickly, I am very impatient with distractions and small talk.

AdLib21 hours ago

Well, it looks like the Jan 6 committee will be recommending charges against Trump. I have my dvr set up to record don’t want to miss a minute of it.

twilson117

21 hours ago

Since I’m from IL I know he had a fair drive to her district each way. We are none of us as spry as once we were, so I can see how it took the whomp out of Murph.

choicelady

21 hours ago

I am DEFINITELY watching Monday! I hope you both can, too. I want to see what they recommend.

choicelady

21 hours ago

CL you got that right. I have only one job and when I do it I’m tuckered out. Who know walking the down the steps to get the mail and back up would be so taxing.

twilson117

21 hours ago

TW – Yes, I think Trump will get criminal referrals but who else? Meadows? Rudy? Sydney Powell? WHo else? They said up to 5 people.

AdLib21 hours ago

CL – Yep, though in CA, it would be like going from one county to another. But doing that regularly? Exhausting let alone the work involved.

AdLib21 hours ago

Ad, I think all of them will. Guess we’ll just have to tune in and find out.I knew I should have bought stock in a popcorn franchise.

twilson117

21 hours ago

Tw – I KNOW – just doing basic housework is driving me to drink. Now I’ve agreed to sponsor a bill which is MAJOR work. Why did I do that?

choicelady

21 hours ago

CL – Oh yeah, I will be watching the 1/6 Committee make history by referring criminal charges against Trump and his cronies. That will be my favorite Christmas present.

AdLib21 hours ago

CL because you’re dedicated to truth, justice and the American way Superwoman.

twilson117

21 hours ago

CL – What is the bill you’re working on?

AdLib21 hours ago

TW – LOL! I got my stepdaughter whom I called Super Woman, an adult SW costume. Never know when you need to prove it.

choicelady

21 hours ago

TW – You should see the NFT trading cards of CL, as Wonder Woman, Rosie the Riveter and Evita.

AdLib21 hours ago

Ad CL has NFT cards, well why not.

twilson117

21 hours ago

Ad – It’s Greg’s oln “multimission extremists” and having law enforcement track and record them. This is extremists who show up in crimes of all kinds against protected characteristics including anti abortion crimes. We don’t track them now. We need to.

choicelady

21 hours ago

Sure looks like Musk has begun sinking Twitter just like he has Tesla.

AdLib21 hours ago

TW! I would not charge for those cards either!

choicelady

21 hours ago

CL – That is an excellent issue to address with legislation. I’ve been saying here for years that there needs to be more direct efforts to identify and stop these violent extremists before they commit crimes.

AdLib21 hours ago

Ad – now while apparently Musk owns most of the Twitter stock, it is ILLEGAL to pillage a company to help divert funds to another you own. He may be in legal trouble doing this.

choicelady

21 hours ago

I will say one thing for Trump he is consistent. Once a grifter always a grifter.

twilson117

21 hours ago

CL – I’d still pay $99 for them!

AdLib21 hours ago

I’d have to have an artist who took years and fatigue off my actual image. Even a good friend said I don’t look well. But hey – my thyroid numbers are GREAT, so who cares how I FEEL, right?

choicelady

21 hours ago

What I found so funny is how Bannon, Baked Alaska and others groaned at how awful Trump’s announcement of his NFTs were. They wanted a declaration of war or an announcement of a new political party and instead they got poorly Photoshopped images of Trump as The Village People.
