Hey TW!

AdLiban hour ago

Hey Ad how is going where you’re at?

All is well my way, my daughter flew out this morning, she’s in Boston now!

AdLiban hour ago

Well she missed the snow, there may be a bit around the campus but I have the feeling it will be gone by tomorrow.

twilson117

an hour ago

Did it snow yesterday?

AdLiban hour ago

No not yesterday started today. Ground still covered where I’m at, will have to clean car off when I go out tomorrow but not really a big storm.

twilson117

an hour ago

I suspect we’ll be getting some more later.

twilson117

an hour ago

Well there is so much to discuss tonight.

twilson117

an hour ago

She got in in the afternoon so she probably saw some.

AdLiban hour ago

No kidding! What’s at the top of your list?

AdLiban hour ago

Oh the judge slapping Trump down hitting him with a $1million dollar fine for filing that stop case of his charging Hillary.

twilson117

an hour ago

I am happy that Trump and his hack lawyer were hit with $1M in fines.

AdLiban hour ago

Heh! We’re on the same page as usual@

AdLiban hour ago

So am I. Hopefully more will come.

twilson117

an hour ago

I see he withdrew the case against the NY AG, since it was the same judge the nailed him for a million.

twilson117

an hour ago

I hope it’s the windup for indictments. February is nearly here, I think the first indictment of Trump has to happen, probably in GA, in Feb, followed by the DoJ indictments (I hope).

AdLiban hour ago

Agree with you on GA, I would say that Trump should be worried about March,

twilson117

an hour ago

It’s about time, too many judges have let Trump manipulate the legal system with sham lawsuits for too long. Slap his wrist, he howls like all bullies do when held to account.

AdLiban hour ago

Yes agree.

twilson117

an hour ago

Why March? Do you think the DoJ will indict in March? So Trump should beware the Ides of March?

AdLiban hour ago

I say March because he needs to beware the Ides of March. Didn’t go well for Caeser and he was warned several times.

twilson117

an hour ago

Yes I do think the DoJ will nail his fat but to the wall.

twilson117

And we see that Santos Clause keeps bearing gifts to the Dems. Did you see the photo of him in drag? He is everything the GOP supposedly hates.

AdLiban hour ago

Hey CL!

AdLiban hour ago

CL is in the house

twilson117

Hellooooo! Always good to see the two of you.

choicelady

I AM in the house. Elvis isn’t, however.

choicelady

an hour ago

How are you feeling, CL? Eyes feeling better with the new glasses?

AdLiban hour ago

Santos is in deep dog crap.

twilson117

an hour ago

OMG – got the glasses today. They are AWFU:L!!! The old ones are far better. I spent a major fortune, and they are DEAD WRONG. Unusable. I am pissed beyond words!!!s.

choicelady

an hour ago

All, was reading article on Santos and he will get his very soon

twilson117

an hour ago

Dems should hammer Santos as the face of the GOP. They embrace aman who is a complete fraud, just like Trump. He lied about everything, he’s a thief and criminal. The takedown should be pretty spectactular. And I think, no way Repubs hold the House in 2024.

AdLiban hour ago

Murph is in the house

twilson117

an hour ago

Hey Murph!

AdLiban hour ago

CL – How do they get a prescription so wrong? I don’t understand that, sorry to hear it. You can use your old glasses in the meantime?

AdLiban hour ago

TW – What dis the article say?

AdLiban hour ago

HELLO ALL….I am caught up on the thread…

Murph!!!

Missouri in the news: More than a dozen faith leaders filed suit Thursday in St. Louis Circuit Court to overturn Missouri’s abortion ban, arguing state legislators acted based on their personal religious beliefs and violated the separation of church and state protected in Missouri’s Constitution.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

You decide:

AdLiban hour ago

Ad it’s about an investor who put in 625k into the fund that Santos was promoting and the person is looking to bring charges.

twilson117

an hour ago

Ad – I have NO idea. I called to make an appointment to have them explain it.

choicelady

an hour ago

CL…sorry about the specs…..I take it that you will be making a return to the optics folk.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Murph – yes, I am. I am VERY happy about the faith leaders. Do we know who they are?

choicelady

an hour ago

Murph I heard about that.

twilson117

an hour ago

Murph – Yes, I saw that story and was very encouraged by it. Being that the judiciary is pretty corrupt in MO though, I don’t know if the suit will get far but rooting for these principled people of faith and the women of MO. BTW, wonder how the lawsuit is going filed by Jewish women stating that banning abortion goes against their religion? The Religious Right SCOTUS is pushed into a corner on that.

AdLiban hour ago

CL….The faith leaders, from St. Louis, Kansas City and Columbia, represent several Protestant and Jewish denominations. They partnered with the National Women’s Law Center and Americans United for Separation of Church and State in drafting the suit.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Ad you know Santos is trying to deny that’s him

twilson117

an hour ago

CL….as I am sure you surmised……leftie clergy, doncha know!

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

TW – If I’d given Santos (aka everyone else in the world) $625K I’d sue him, too.

choicelady

an hour ago

TW – Yes, saw about that and you’ve got to think there are more ripped-off investors like this one to come after Santos.

AdLiban hour ago

Murph – LOVE me the NWLC. Love the Americans United. Of COURSE Jews and Protestants. Who WE are – the only sane Christians around.

choicelady

an hour ago

Santos has delusions of grandeur fueled by narcissistic dependence.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

CL the guy is wealthy bought Santos BS also has ties to a Russian Oligarch, so there is that. But, he seems to be going through the SEC to bring charges.

twilson117

an hour ago

Murph – That is fantastic to hear! The evidence of the anti-abortion movement and SCOTUS members like Barrett openly admitting they’ve been on a religious jihad to end abortion is quite damning evidence.

AdLiban hour ago

CL…happy to say that the Episcopal Church is by and large in the same place you and I ae.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Murph – PRRI did a survey 2020 on the state of religion in America. The “lefty” Protestants OUT NUMBER the religious right a LOT and are growing not shrinking. The RW has dropped from 24% of the American populace to 13% in less than a decade. WE ARE the mainstream. They aren’t.

choicelady

an hour ago

TW – I don’t think anyone but Kevin McCarthy has any reason to believe anything Santos says anymore.

AdLiban hour ago

Murph – UCC, Episcopalians, the actual United Methodists, the ELCA, Disciples, Presbyterian USA, and a few smaller churches are ALL sane, pro Constitution, and pro inclusive humanity.

choicelady

an hour ago

What did you all think about the dead end SCOTUS admitted re. the Alito leak…of course the Justices were not part of the investigation……just role playing.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Santos had to be inspired by watching Trump lie constantly, he must’ve gazed at him saying, “That’s what I do! I can be a Republican politician too!”

AdLiban hour ago

Murph – the person doing the investigation into the leak works FOR the Court and was not a free agent. Of course she did not push Alito and Thomas very hard. Stupid.

choicelady

an hour ago

CL….one wrinkle in your encouraging status is that most of those on the religious right are active in their membership and support….much less so to among the “left”

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Ad – Santos is Trump’s “Mini Me”.

choicelady

an hour ago

CL…..yes….the investigation was a pantomime

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Ad as you said Kevin needs his vote. Reading where one of the members of his caucus is laid up after falling off a ladder and can’t vote since they did away with proxy voting and another member is pissed because he didn’t get a chairmanship and may resign

twilson117

an hour ago

I think Alito leaked the document

twilson117

an hour ago

Murph – the commitment on the right is declining. They are so cruel to even authentic True Believers, that people are lessening their commitment. And for mainline/progressive Protestants, the commitment is growing.
